Liberals Support Erasing Pillars of American Society
A recent Quillette survey reveals the depth of radical thinking within parts of American society and the lengths some are willing to go to attain “racial justice.”
The survey was conducted on 870 Americans from the survey platforms Amazon Mechanical Turk and Prolific Academic, which tend to be dominated by young, white liberals. Of those 870 respondents, the survey’s author, Eric Kaufmann, focused on the responses of the 414 people who rated themselves as either “liberal” or “very liberal.”
Kaufmann explained that he conducted this survey “to find out how willing liberal Americans are to jettison the country’s cultural identity.” He asked what he thought were “outlandish questions—almost to the point of inflicting a Sokal Squared-style hoax on survey respondents.” Kaufmann said that the answers to the May 7 survey amazed him. “I then repeated the exercise on June 15th, after the George Floyd killing and subsequent protests to see whether things had gotten even crazier. It turns out they have.”
The survey was prefaced with the following statement: “To what extent do you think that the following should be done to address structural barriers to race and gender equality in America.” What followed were 16 “outlandish” questions that participants ranked from “strongly disagree” to “strongly agree.”
Some of the most alarming results came in regards to the Constitution and the national anthem. Some 70 percent of liberals and 79 percent of those who identify as very liberal support “a new American constitution that better reflects our diversity as a people.” Seventy-one percent of liberal and 80 percent of very liberal called for a change to the national anthem.
The most widely supported claim of the survey, with 76 percent support from the liberal and 81 percent support from the very liberal, was to “[r]ebalance the art shown in museums across the country until an analysis of content shows that it reflects the demography of the population and perspective of native people and citizens of color.”
Several questions received the support of more than 50 percent of the liberal and very liberal respondents. These included “rebalancing” history books and allowing parks to “return to their natural state, before a European sense of order was imposed upon them.” Other radical changes that garnered less support, but still received some support, included changing the name of the United States of America, redesigning the flag, destroying Mount Rushmore, and a new national language “forged from the immigrant and native linguistic diversity of this country’s past.”
The acceptance of these kinds of changes align almost word for word with author George Orwell’s book 1984. He wrote that destroying the past is the first task of socialism:
Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.
These once-radical concepts are slowly being de-radicalized within American society. This gradual acceptance is verified by the incremental increase Kaufmann noted in initial support for the radical changes from the May 7 survey to June 15, after the death of George Floyd. Kaufmann said the results of the second survey show that “America may have stepped over the precipice toward cultural revolution.”
According to Kaufmann, this “erasing and eroding [of] a centuries-old civilization” began in educational institutions. He wrote:
What has occurred across the West, especially in the English-speaking world, is a steady left-modernist march through the institutions. Beginning in the 1960s, former radicals entered universities and the media, capturing the meaning-producing machines of society. Once boomers became the establishment in the 1990s, the ethos of institutions started to shift. For good and ill, equality and diversity rose up the priority list. As these ideas filtered through Schools of Education and into the K-12 curriculum, older ideas of patriotism faded and the new critical theory perspective began to replace it. Sixty-three percent of millennials (aged 22–37) now agree that “America is a racist country,” nearly half say it is “more racist than other countries,” and 60 percent that it is a sexist country. Older generations are less radical, but 40–50 percent of boomers and Gen Xers agree with these statements, reflecting the long march of the New Left through American culture.
With each generation, the acceptance of these radical ideas increases. What Kaufmann described is the Communist plan to infiltrate and destroy America from within. And it began with education.
In his 1984 book, Love Letter to America, kgb defector Yuri Bezmenov presented communism’s four-stage plan of ideological subversion against the United States, beginning with “demoralization.”
Stage one is a reeducation program to “change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent that despite the abundance of information, no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community and their country.” He wrote that this stage only took 15 to 20 years because that “is the minimum number of years needed to ‘educate’ one generation of students in a target country (America, for example) and expose them to the ideology of the subverter.”
This is why the younger generation is the most radical. Baby boomers were among the first students to be educated under this system in the 1960s and ’70s. They became the teachers of generation X and so the trend continued. With each generation comes a deeper and more radical acceptance of these ideologies.
Bezmenov explained that this reeducation method included student exchange programs with Moscow, filling American campuses with Marxist literature, international seminars with Soviet backing, Communist-staffed newspapers, Soviet propaganda, and radical leftists under the sway of kgb agents (usually unknowingly).
This Communist takeover was recognized by Plain Truth editor in chief Herbert W. Armstrong years before Bezmenov published his book and before communism became so deeply rooted in America. Beginning in 1934, Mr. Armstrong warned that Communists planned to infiltrate America first through propaganda. In a 1944 Plain Truth issue, Mr. Armstrong called communism “a worldwide political movement” with a plan “in action, for the violent overthrow of capitalism and the capitalistic governments. And capitalism means democracy”—primarily America. Mr. Armstrong explained that it is waging a war that we do not understand: “It uses every diabolical means to weaken us from within …. Communism is worldwide psychological warfare!”
In 1980, Mr. Armstrong explained, “They began sowing the seeds of their Communist atheistic education all over the United States—especially among college professors and students. … If they could not ‘convert’ professors, they worked on students who would become teachers later. Thus they were recruiting teachers to teach their doctrine all over the United States.”
This Communist ideology is the force behind the recently publicized Black Lives Matter and Antifa movements. These are not racial justice groups—they embody some of the most radical principles of Communist ideology. And in many cases, they are violently enforcing Communist ideology on the U.S.
This ideology is rapidly bringing to pass what Isaiah 1:7 prophesies: “Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.”
Communism plays a major role in the prophesied destruction of America. Communists have been working for decades to bring down the U.S. before our eyes. The division they have stirred up has lit the spark that is about to send the nation spiraling down into another full-scale civil war. The seeds of this civil war have been sown. The recent weeks of protests that have burned our cities prove how quickly this can happen
