I only remember a few tidbits of the SE Asian war and its aftermath – the hippies, the protests, the burning of the flag, the peace signs and then, the killing fields of Cambodia. Back then, the truth was muddled with leftist propaganda- the US dropped Napalm on helpless civilians. The US started the war. The US lost the war. US soldiers were baby killers. Unfortunately, I was young and impressionable, and I believed most of what I was told. I didn’t realize that the protests against the war were nothing but a ruse until much later in my life. The so called anti war radicals could have cared less about peace. They were more interested in humiliating the US and giving victory to a tyrannical state that sought to impose its will on another.
Those anti war radicals were in reality Marxists and they played their parts well. By the early 70’s, they had transformed the mindset of a nation. They won through lies and deceit and managed to humiliate the US. They made the war “over there” an embarrassment to everyday Americans. It was better to sweep the war under the rug and forget it. Back then I didn’t understand how easily led people were. Now, decades later, I know better. The power of Leftist propaganda is immense. It caused great harm to millions in Asia, and to young US soldiers, and we the people fed right into it without question. Today, those who follow the same ideology as the anti Vietnam war radicals are up to the same tricks. Only this time, they are after a much greater prize than SE Asia.
As America’s light grows ever dimmer, the specter of the Cambodian dead rises as a reminder to the everyday American to take heed. History doesn’t repeat itself exactly but it can expand in the same direction. And thats what is happening today in the USA. Our gov’t has been infiltrated by Marxists. They view the US as an impediment against their quest for world domination- under the guise of social justice and equality. The US as it was formed by by our founding fathers must be destroyed and reinvented. Thats means millions must die. I know that sounds far fetched but it isn’t. Marxist do not view humans as divine as Christianity does. Humans are on the same level as animals, and to be more precise – herd animals. I’m not making that up- Lenin said it. So to annihilate tens of millions is of no consequence to the Marxists because humans are expendable.
Just as the Jihadis are permanently at war with the West so too are the Marxists. And like the Jihadis, the Marxists never give up. They believe that only they can give direction to humanity and create a utopia where all men can live without borders.
Their utopia is an illusion. It is unattainable but that doesn’t deter the Marxist.
So the US lost the war. But how the war was lost? The war was lost NOT because of poor military strategy but because of leftist interference- from the universities to the halls of Congress. It was those Marxist influences that caused the US to back down and then back out of a war it was dominating. When the Viet Cong invaded and Saigon fell, it was leftist radicals who forced the US government to stay away despite desperate pleas from South Vietnam. Sadly, the US gov’t yielded.
So, the cries of PEACE were just an illusion of betrayal directed a people who fell for it- hook, line and sinker. The left didnt want peace because that would have meant that South Vietnam would have prevailed and that could not have been allowed. The truth is the left wanted the US to have “peace with honor” to provide the Viet Cong with an opportunity to invade and conquer the South. This was not to regions fighting a civil war. This was Marxist conquest and the American left were the cheer leaders.
Cambodia was next. Vietnam fell and Pol Pot saw an opportunity. Teachers, and doctors and other professionals were executed as enemies of the state. A government was installed based on Pol Pot’s knowledge of Marxism that he learned from his university days in France. Marxists don’t believe in private property so people were forced out of their homes and leave behind their valuables. Those deemed strong enough to survive were marched off into the jungles to work in ‘reeducation camps” later known as the “killing fields.” Most historians agree that at least 2 million were slaughtered. Millions who escaped suffered irreparable psychological damage. Yet, there was hardly a peep of protest from the left. They knew what was happening but they would never consider protesting against a brother. The Left wants communism to prevail. They want a NWO. They want all of humanity to be equal in poverty (except them, of course) If millions had to be sacrificed in places like the Killing fields of Cambodia then so be it.
Everyday, our government grows stronger which puts each and every American in jeopardy. When a government becomes stronger, it becomes corrupt. When the power leaves the people and local government, the federal government becomes more centralized and more removed from the people. The more removed the government becomes the more paranoid it becomes and therefore more intrusive. The more intrusive a government becomes, the more dictatorial it becomes. When a government becomes dictatorial it dictates to you what to do, how to think and how to behave or else. This is the rule of Marxism. You no longer have an individual identity. You belong to the state and if you go against the state you will be disposed off like the people in Cambodia were not so long ago. It may sound far fetched but its not. To the Marxist, killing a human is like killing a horse or a dog, without remorse or regret.
The killing fields may be on our horizon. Our borders are wide open. The Middle class is struggling under the burdens of heavy taxes. Our core faith is being demonized. Free speech is being constrained. Racism applies only to a certain race. More dumbing down in our public schools as Common core is forced down our throats. Children are in more danger than they ever were despite all the rules and regulations and gun free zones. Our economy is headed for collapse due to the increasing pressures of entitlements. Islam is growing in leaps and bounds thanks to government leaders who view the US as the source of all that is wrong in the world.
The only thing that stops the Marxists in power from doing what they want to do is America’s constitution and our core faith. Both must be removed because Marxism can’t reign supreme if the constitution and Christianity hold sway over the people.
Marxists like Muslims are very patient. They have all the time in the world to wait for the right moment to pounce, and that moment is very near at hand. Unfortunately for the Marxists, they don’t have enough power yet. They just cant out and out destroy the constitution, but they can slowly eat away at it while they use propaganda to mock and ridicule it as a piece of paper that is racist and insignificant. For now, they have to relie on deception as they continue to increase their control in government from the local to the fed eral levels; their strength being derived in part from citizen inaction and ignorance. As the state becomes more powerful, it makes no effort to hide its disdain for those who oppose its agenda. Endless rules and regulations are being used to erode our constitutional rights. We have a president who has contempt for our civil rights and rule of law. The DHS has a power over American citizens that would have been tolerated 40 years ago. FEMA camps are being created. They may one day be our re education camps and if history teaches us anything, they could turn out to be our Killing fields.
