The left’s not-so-subtle war on America began decades ago. The opening salvo was the free speech movement in 1964. ReadAyn Rand’s: The Cashing-In: The Student “Rebellion,” published in Return of the Primitive. One could argue it goes back further, say with Alger Hiss.
But the country was decidedly and emphatically against communism, socialism and totalitarianism at that time. And began the long march into our most hallowed institutions – academia, media, entertainment to change and twist the mind.
The “Long March through the Institutions” was a phrase attributed to the Italian communist Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937) and then coined as a succinct mission statement by Marxist student activist Rudi Dutschke in the 1960s.
The phrase is used to describe the intellectual takeover of a society without need to resort to a military conflict. Instead, the strategy focuses on slowly winning over the chief institutions that determine the direction of a culture and thereby creating a soft revolution from within those institutions. So, the focus was on the universities, then the unions, the arts, the K-12 schools, the media, then corporations, and finally the society as a whole.
The 2020 election was the final stroke, a stealth coup. Who gave the order the stop counting election night? Things don’t just happen. They are made to happen.
And finally, we are a Constitutional Republic not a ‘democracy.”
“As a cultural-intellectual power and a moral ideal, collectivism died in World War II. If we are still rolling in its direction, it is only by the inertia of a void and the momentum of disintegration. A social movement that began with the ponderous, brain-cracking, dialectical constructs of Hegel and Marx, and ends up with a horde of morally unwashed children stamping their foot and shrieking: “I want it now!”—is through.” Ayn Rand, 1965
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.

If one were to claim the U.S. is different from and better than communist China, how would we know it? Let’s compare the facts on taking down political opponents.
In the name of “defending democracy,” American Democrats weaponized our government apparatus in an attempt to eliminate a former president. As it turns out, Democrats’ despotic tactics to hold power are disturbingly reminiscent of those employed by the authoritarian communists running China. On Saturday, Chinese leader Xi Jinping appeared to make a similar move against his predecessor.
In now widely seen footage from the Communist Party Congress, Hu Jintao—the former Chinese president and symbol of ideological opposition to Xi—was dragged out of Beijing’s Great Hall of the People. Hu was sitting to the left of President Xi on the last day of the congress until a man in a suit and surgical mask pulled him out of his seat and out of the Great Hall, apparently against his will.
