Overthrowing America

In view of Barack Obama’s re-election, consider the following quote from  Stanislav Mishin, writing in PRAVDA—the state newspaper of Russia: “It must be  said that, like the breaking of a great dam, the gramschiAmerican descent into Marxism  is happening with breathtaking speed, against the backdrop of a passive, hapless  sheeple—excuse me dear reader—I meant people.”  Is it possible that  outsiders who are steeped in what Marxism really looks like can see what  Americans cannot?

Most Americans have heard of Karl Marx and his plan for overthrowing  democratic governments through armed revolts of the workers.  But few  Americans have heard of Antonio Gramsci.  This is too bad because Gramsci  is the communist philosopher who developed a theory specifically for  overthrowing America.  Gramsci thought that overthrowing the United States  through an armed revolt of indigenous workers was unrealistic.  He  theorized that a better approach would be to undermine the culture and morality  of America so that our country would destroy itself from within.

His plan was for intellectual elites to take control of colleges,  universities, public schools, and the government and to use their control to  destroy the America of our Founders in the name of progressivism.  Sound familiar? Gramsci called his theory “cultural hegemony.”  As I  consider the re-election of Barack Obama and think about the cultural and moral  changes that have occurred in America in just the short span of my lifetime, I  have to wonder if we are seeing the realization of Gramsci’s theory.  This  column explains just a few of the main tenets of his theory.

Gramsci admonished college professors and the leftwing media to refer to  communist dictators as “Chairmen,” “Leaders,” and “Presidents,” but never as “dictators.”  This type of rhetorical misdirection would soften the views  of the public at large to communist leaders.  The communist tyrant, Mao,  was always referred to in the media and by leftwing professors as “Chairman  Mao.” Castro is still referred to as “Premier” or “political leader,” but never  as “communist dictator.”  Even Joseph Stalin, a dictator who exterminated  30 million of his own people, was referred to fondly as “Uncle Joe” or  respectfully as “Premier.”

Another tenet of Gramsci’s theory was gradualism.  He knew how  Americans would react to armed insurrection by indigenous workers or anyone  else.  Consequently, Gramsci recommended a slow transition first to  socialism and then to communism.  The transition to socialism would be done  under the guise of saving jobs during times of economic recession.  The  government would take control of businesses or even whole business sectors to  rescue them from bankruptcy.  Sound familiar?

Another of Gramsci’s strategies was to promote the United Nations as the best  hope for world peace and a one-world government.  Once the United Nations  was firmly established, the nest step would be to ensure control of the body by  communist nations and their surrogates. This meant getting communist China  established in a seat on the United Nations Security Council and giving voice to  all of the smaller nations around the world that are either controlled or  heavily influenced by communist nations such as China.  Again this should  sound familiar.

Marx missed the boat concerning how to overthrow America, but Gramsci appears to  have hit the mark.  Well before Barack Obama was elected the first time,  America was well down the road in implementing the various tenets of Gramsci’s  theory.  But under the Obama administration the process has speeded up.
