America is experiencing a rampage of revolutionary Marxist-inspired social and political change. The recent destruction of property, political order, and many lives seen in over 600 massive, organized riots in 220 American cities by Black Live Matter (BLM) and Antifa is only the tip of the iceberg for Marxists.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa, with their Critical Race Theories (CRT) being Marxist-led inspired movements, are supported by billions of dollars from newly woke big corporations, tech billionaires, and institutional funding. Many more continue to succumb to their bullying protection racket.
The implementation strategies of Marxists are to traditionally pit one group against the other to exploit differences and hence show the need for a Marxist collectivist ideology to correct the societal problems. These group divisions can be by economic class, gender, ethnicities, nationalism, or race. What the identity of these groups that conflict with others is not important. Conflict and chaos are all that matter. See more here – “The Marxist Plan to Destroy America.”
Though the march of Marxism started over 200 years ago, this recent surge did not start with BLM and Antifa. It actually started over a decade ago. One of President Obama’s key “accomplishments” was the launching of the current instantiation of the Culture War. Events such as the death of Travon Martin and the Fergeson riots were used to launch the exploitation of racial differences – with its subsequent need for Marxist remedies by their leaders.
We can see this racial phenomenon with historical timing in a simple word count of the words “racist/racism” in several mainstream media outlets in the chart below.
If you recall, during the early 2010s, America was in the midst of the Great Recession. Many had lost their jobs as the economy tanked. Many blamed the “banksters” and politicians for their plight. This was fertile ground for the Marxists to exploit. The Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protest was a response movement primarily against economic inequality that began in Zuccotti Park, located in New York City’s Wall Street financial district, back in September 2011. It gave rise to the broader Occupy movement in the United States and other countries.
OWS, though an impressive protest at the time, was short-lived. It mostly ended within a few months – winter came, and it got cold. As the economy slowly recovered, many protestors left their OWS encampments, and some went back to work. But Marxist leaders had a ready-made team of hardcore protestors that could be leveraged in a Marxist implementation strategy. Why let it go to waste, and the economic pain was still there. However, there was an apparent strategy shift from a class struggle to an Intersectional, predominantly racial struggle. Remember, it does not matter which groups to exploit. One is as good as the other.
In this march of Marxism, have they made a strategic mistake (i.e., the shift from a class to race struggle back in the early 2010s.)?
How do the class vs. race issues play in society today? In recent polling in economic class issues and social programs as solutions, actually sell well in American politics today. See the summary chart below – see more here.
Conversely, a recent Economist/YouGov poll found that among those who are aware of CRT and its divisive and destructive ideas abhor the left-wing Marxist ideas being pushed in business, the military, and education that the U.S. was founded on oppressing minorities. See chart below.
We all know that America is almost divided right down the middle (50/50) in terms of the political divide. The Marxists, on the one hand, have been relatively successful in exploiting racial differences, and we can see this in the racial party differences in the chart below. See more here.
Today’s Biden administration has made a conscious decision to destabilize the American economy. Reports of inflation and troubling economic storm clouds are building. Remember today that many Americans can’t afford a $400 emergency – many are increasingly living on the edge economically. Imagine if America enters into another recession or even worse?
Not being a matter of “if,” but “when” the economy falters, the political focus could quickly change from racial to economic. This, as it was for the OWS protestors, would normally be fertile ground for the Marxists. Marxists could convince many marginal conservatives over to their way of thinking.
However, because the Marxists have been so focused on issues of race – calling the other side racist and deplorable, and they have so polluted the waters on race issues, disadvantaged voters may be less likely to follow the Marxists in the event of a faltering economy. Even many of the minorities that traditionally voted Left have begun to understand the absurdity of the racial dogma and may want to focus more on economic issues as well. We saw this phenomenon in how President Trump was able to garner many of their votes in the 2020 elections.
In other words, the Marxist perhaps should have stayed on the class struggle issues and not try to sow their chaos via race issues.
This potential strategic mistake of the Marxist implementation strategy may give an opening for conservatives, if they can make the proper arguments, to recapture the direction of America in the coming political storm that will inevitably come.
