President Biden warns that Republicans are destroying democracy – especially those who are MAGA-lovers. If we lose our democracy, what are we left with? Socialism? Communism? There’s no way of knowing. And much of it will depend on which party is capable of winning over the masses.
There’s a warning in all of this. And a survivor of the Communist regime has a warning for Americans.
Many Americans have been embracing the idea of socialism and communism for a while, as terrifying as that is. Heck, members in the House and Senate are identifying themselves not as Democrats but as Democratic Socialists. AOC and Bernie Sanders are both outspoken members.
Embracing such ideals isn’t what is going to hold our democracy together. And there are more people who have fled the communist regimes of Cuba, China, the Soviet Union, and other places who have provided warnings. They have shared their experiences and their horror stories.
Xi Van Fleet survived the Mao Zedong communist revolution in China. When she recently spoke on Fox & Friends Weekend, she shared a warning with Americans. She said that she ran from socialism when she left China so that she could come to the U.S. where there was freedom. She said that she sees so many Americans trying to abandon that freedom and arrive at socialism.
She warns, “They have no idea what socialism is about. I lived under Mao’s socialism. When the government controls everything and makes all the decisions big and small and decide how much grain, meat [and] cooking oil I could have. What I should learn in school, where I should live, and what job I should have and how I should think. In the socialist society I lived under, there was no choices. There is no freedom. And that’s what people do not know. Socialism becomes such a diluted word and it’s intentional.”
She continued by saying that there’s not much difference between socialism and communism. And perhaps that’s the issue – that Americans who believe socialism is a good thing don’t realize that, according to Karl Marx, it’s the first stage of communism.
No one wants to deal with communism in this country – especially those who have already escaped such nightmares. Democrats don’t like the “fascist” MAGA supporters, yet they’ll allow a socialist agenda to plague the nation. It proves that there are too many liberals who have been brainwashed into thinking that socialism is a good thing.
Who wants to stand on bread lines? Not I.
Who wants to be told to ignore what’s being taught to your children? Not I.
If that makes me a fascist MAGA supporter, I’ll wear that label with pride. It has nothing to do with Donald Trump. It has everything to do with fighting for the freedoms that are guaranteed within the Constitution.
One of the reasons why the U.S. is prosperous is because of capitalism. It drives competition and innovation. And if we don’t push back against the socialism rhetoric, capitalism will be labeled as “evil,” and it will slowly disappear.
As RedState recently reported, “It is vitally important to educate voters about the dangers of socialism and communism and why capitalism is the only economic system that will provide opportunity and wealth through hard work for all Americans.”
By paying attention to what’s being said by the Democratic Party, we can arm ourselves with the truth and ensure that we don’t let freedom fall.
