“We do not have to invade the United States, we will destroy you from within”, a quote often attributed to former Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev.
As is often the case about controversial historical figures, quotes attributed to them may or may not have actually been uttered exactly as recorded in history, perceptions and memories often differ or fade.
What is certain though is that efforts to undermine, or even overthrow the government of the United States by the Soviet Union were ongoing throughout the Cold War.
The Soviets have tried to influence and outright interfere in every election the United States has conducted since at least the end of World War II.
In fact the Soviet Union attempted to make inroads into all segments of American society in their ultimate goal of turning America into a communist nation.
Our colleges and universities became a prime target. If you can influence young, impressionable minds through feeding them a steady stream of communist doctrine, and turn them into mindless and good little socialists and communists, then they will become willing soldiers to carry out your wishes.
College faculties and administrators, along with corrupt union officials became two of the vehicles the Soviet Union would use to achieve that goal.
If you look at the makeup of college and university faculties and administrators nowadays you will find that they openly identify overwhelmingly as “progressive”.
Which is just another word for leftist-communists. Unions have long aligned themselves with the Democrat Party, the “Progressive Democrat Party”. That speaks for itself.
New York Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is a product of this same communist indoctrination, along with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
Both serve as perfect examples of communist influence within our institutions of higher learning(?), and now also within our own government.
Those same educators and college officials influenced and fed a young Barack Obama and his closest confidants with this same communist pablum as he was growing up and during his impressionable and formative years.
Not to mention the communist influence he experienced from his own parents and grandparents and their close associates.
Ever wonder what Obama meant during his first campaign for president in 2007 when he said “We live in the greatest country on earth. Join me as we fundamentally transform the United States of America”.
If our country was the greatest on earth, then why did it need to be “fundamentally transformed”?
What has been underway here in America since 2016 is and has been a concerted effort on the part of America’s Marxist-Leninists to overthrow the will of the American people who elected Donald Trump as President of the United States.
Trump’s economic success which has improved the lives of all Americans, particularly America’s working class, threatens the message being shoveled (much like a load of horse crap) onto the American people by the Democrat Party, the natural allies of Bolshevism.
Make no mistake, the Democrat’s impeachment effort is just another attempt to steal control of our lives, and it is doomed to failure.
President Donald Trump has kept his promises and produced for the American people. And Americans will remember that come Election Day in November 2020.
As President Ronald Reagan once said, “Communism will end up on the ash heap of history”. And hopefully soon the Democrat Party along with it.
