According to a new poll, seventy percent of Millennials now plan on voting for socialists and Democrats. And thirty-six percent support communism. For those keeping score at home, that’s one in three youngsters – brought up in the modern, atheistic, secular-progressive education system in America.

Not surprisingly, with the help of today’s media and Hollywood, these same Millennials believe President Donald Trump is a bigger threat to world peace than North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

Most of us born prior to 1980 learned the truth about socialism before history books were completely rewritten in government schools. What’s so bad about Communism and what kind of death and destruction have socialist leaders inflicted on the world?

In its fourth annual report on attitudes toward socialism, the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation reveal some alarming trends among under-educated young people in the United States of Entertainment.

I hope you’re sitting down for this next one. Only 57% of Millennials believe the Declaration of Independence better “guarantees freedom and equality” over the Communist Manifesto. And, only 62% of future world shakers believe China is a communist country.

Socialism is a centrally planned economy in which the government controls all means of production. Is this confusing at all? Is this historical amnesia or is it the corruption of the left indoctrinating a generation of young people?

Marion Smith, executive director of Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation states:

“When we don’t educate our youngest generations about the historical truth of 100 million victims murdered at the hands of communist regimes over the past century, we shouldn’t be surprised at their willingness to embrace Marxist ideas; We need to redouble our efforts to educate America’s youth about …the dangers of socialism today.”

Most of us don’t understand how kids can go through junior high and high school and not come away with at least a basic understanding of economics and world history. We remember the Soviet Union and Red China, and today, a few obvious examples are Cuba and Venezuela.

Rather than the facts, too many students buy into feelings-based liberal talking points about a softer, appealing brand of socialism. They follow people like congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders, who wants to give them free stuff. Do they really believe capitalism is the problem? Yup.

Ocasio-Cortez has even said her generation has never known true prosperity. In America.

This growing love affair with socialism coincides with a foggy understanding of economic philosophies and is a result of biased, ideologically-driven public school curriculum. How else can you explain why even ten percent of Millennials say Trump is “responsible for more deaths and human rights abuses” than Russian leader Joseph Stalin who murdered tens of millions of people, or Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler?

The same way we can explain how 87% of high school students flunked a five-question test of basic knowledge about American history. These same students were also least likely to know who is on Mount Rushmore. Just four presidents; and only 35 percent got it right.  

Millennials generally see the world through their own emotions and experience, which prevents them from acknowledging the truth about life and world history. Combine that with the fact the progressive education system teaches them how bad America is and you can begin to understand why they think the way they do. 

People complain about the world and say they want equality, fairness, and justice. But do they really understand what they mean? Those same people are often the first to deny the God who created us, ignore the truth in the Bible, and criticize the Judeo-Christian principles that helped set the foundation for the great freedoms and moral values we have enjoyed in America. 

We might not be able to re-educate people, but we better pray for God’s protection on this nation, fight the good fight, and speak the truth on these issues.

( Excerpt from chapter 10 in Eradicate: Blotting out God in America)

“The Left wants you to think that the cultural changes that have taken place in America since the 1960’s have done noth­ing but progress us forward to a brave new world … they’ve done everything in their power to dumb down our children, undermine our families, rewrite our history, and promote obscenity and immorality everywhere they can … the ideas that now dominate our educational system are focused on removing God and His influence from every part of our cul­ture.” – Curtis Bowers (Agenda Documentary producer)

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” – Barack Obama, 2008 “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign stu­dents. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists….” (Barack Obama, Dreams From My Father)

WHILE WE WERE SLEEPING

 The battle for the soul of America has long been waged. If only we had seen it coming. If only we had been warned 100 years ago or fifty … or twenty-five years ago, or maybe even in 2008. If only somebody would have told us about the imminent danger and the threat to destroy America. If only Christians could have seen the coming attack on Jesus Christ and assault on morality. Maybe concerned citizens could have resisted the transformation. If only one of the socialist leaders would have openly broadcasted a call to arms for radicals to seize power so we, our parents, or our grandparents could have known their intentions and fought back. If only the anti-American movement would have made their declaration of war public, then we would have stood against the enemy and resisted, wouldn’t we have?

But they were patient, and it happened gradually. It was a brilliant plan. One strategy enemies of God have used to neutralize opponents (we the people) is to convince us there was never an agenda against this country; that there are only rumors and fabrications. They say the deterioration of America has been natural and inevitable. To those of us who are awake and who understand the Bible, they are absolutely wrong; history reveals it, and evidence proves it true. If only we could have saved the United States of America. Maybe it’s not too late; per­haps there is still time….

Sadly, the rapid decline of our culture continues with little resistance; it’s happening right under our noses and right before our eyes. The implementation of an anti-Christian socialist agenda has been thrust on America over the last fifty-plus years and if not stopped, will lead to communism. This is the goal of the Left…

We can either remain in denial, or we can join the awakened move­ment of conservatives, independents, people of faith, and average Ameri­cans who want their country back. Two key questions are “who is doing this” and ”how are they doing it”? Most atheists, socialists and Marxists believe people would be much happier if Christianity was eradicated. Without strong people of faith standing for truth, their agenda would advance with little hindrance.

“The first requisite for the happiness of the people is the aboli­tion of religion.” And, “Religion is the opium of the masses.” – Karl Marx

RADICALS AMONG US

Socialism has taken over much of Europe, and the result has been chaos and unrest due to economic failures and increasing immorality. Though it is not always blatantly out in the open, socialism has been on our shores for over a century. There are those in America who are so focused on gaining power at any cost even some liberals question their tactics which is one reason we’ve seen divided factions in the Occupy Wall Street movement. They’ve always been here, but now more Americans are waking up.

Many of us were either oblivious that our country was in fact, drift­ing away from our roots, or we ignored it. Our culture has been com­promised as they have purposefully achieved their objectives through many of America’s most influential institutions. Radicals have been emboldened by allies in the White House who through their policies are helping to advance everything from environmental activism to social justice and wealth redistribution. They openly support anti-American countries and groups while disrespecting Israel and weakening our national defense.

As Christian conservatives, other than preaching the gospel, our main concerns must be the protection of free speech and religious liberty in America. They’d love to shut us up. Until we understand how deceptive and dishonest some of our opponents are, it will be hard to defend the constant attacks on our faith, family, and freedoms. We are seeing more and more class warfare, criticism of capitalism, and government intrusion on Ameri­can citizen’s basic rights including religious liberties…

But why socialism, and why did they choose this time in our history to try to make their move? Generations must have been dumbed down because anyone with a remote understanding of history knows millions lived under abject poverty and suffered worldwide under socialism. Never before have so many innocent people died while being subjected to narcissistic leaders and tyrants who fooled them by saying all the right things. But the media buries it, and our kids are not being taught the whole truth in government-run public education.

Whether it is communism, socialism, Marxism, or progressivism, they all lead to man’s worship of the State as provider instead of the American system that allows for and encourages people to see God as provider. The fact more Americans are considering ideas and “isms” like what we see today – after all of the climactic failures of socialism around the world – is beyond comprehension. If people don’t know bib­lical truth and American heritage, it’s no wonder some are not capable of reasoning and resisting this anti-Christian agenda…
