Brainwash the Youth
There is yet another disturbing trend in each of these tyrant’s rise to power that we’re seeing repeated again right in front of us at present, and it’s perhaps the most disgusting and terrifying: brainwashing the youth.
Because children and teenagers have neither the fully formed logic nor life experience of adults, they’re the easiest targets for Marxist tyrants to brainwash and create armies that are willing to turn against any teachers, leaders or even parents who could be “enemies of the revolution” or political opponents planning a counterrevolution.
Hitler had the Jugendbund which became the Hitler Youth.
Lenin had the “Little Octoberists” (ages 7-9), “The Young Pioneers” (ages 9-14), and the “Komsomol” (ages 14-28), after which their fully propagandized and brainwashed youth would go directly into the Communist party to serve his will.
Mussolini had the Avanguardia Giovanile Fascista (Fascist Youth Vanguards) and Gruppi Universitari Fascisti (Fascist University Groups).
As mentioned before, Mao’s brainwashing of the youth was perhaps the most diabolical and complete of all of the Marxist dictators, in that it was the youth that he used to drive his Cultural Revolution that destroyed all historical representations of the past and turn against, publicly shame and even beat (sometimes to death) any teachers, parents or leaders who could be seen as opposition to Mao’s iron grip of control.
Tying It to Today
Whether it be the admittedly false history lessons being implemented in public schools by The 1619 Project, children’s shows being peppered with Marxist teachings, Teen Vogue being extremely open about their attempts to push socialist, communist and Marxist agendas to the youth or Marxist teachers and university professors ranting about President Trump or teaching the history of these murderous Marxist tyrants without discussing the mass murder that accompanied each of their time in power or our media trying to take all attention away from the Democrat’s true intents and dangers of socialism, we’re in the midst of perhaps the greatest attempt to brainwash a nation of all time.
We see it in the social media tyrants labeling historical facts as “fake news,” the media’s narratives meant to drive attention away from the Democrat party’s push to out-and-out socialism (which, as noted before is merely the first step on the path to communism) and the blatant disregard for truth and unwillingness to do any research on their own for anyone who’s dug their heels in and decided to continue their support for our modern leftists.
Some of us have been screaming as loudly as we could for years that this was coming, and thankfully many have finally seen what is going on and decided to fight back, whether it be sharing facts, fighting back against false narratives, or even joining the #WalkAway
But the fight is far from over, as the left has taken near-total control over our bureaucracy via government workers, our education system via school boards, teachers, college professors and administrators, media and entertainment industry, and publishing.
Tracy Beanz has long advocated that we need more Americans to begin taking their civic duty to go into these positions, whether it be running for public office, becoming an activist, running for school board seats, or supporting/becoming citizen journalists.
The left has a decades-long head start on us in each of these areas, but we must begin to fight back, for it is our children’s minds and lives that are at stake.
Overstate (Lie About) Your Power
How does a single lone revolutionary rise to the point of absolute despot wielding absolute power over the nation?
As described above, there are a multitude of variables put into play, whether it be instigating mass amounts of chaos and violence and following the “ordo et chaos” (order through chaos) principle and convincing people that you’re the only one who can make it stop, brainwashing the youth and convincing the people in charge to slowly hand you more and more power until you get to the point that there’s no one left to stop you.
But in order to get to that point, there’s a necessary step that each of these tyrants-in-waiting took to move from an obscure revolutionary to the center of a “cult of personality” that requires adulation and faux-admiration from your populace: overstate your power.
Hitler was virtually unknown in Germany when he began his rise, but his excellent oratory skills, understanding of propaganda and willingness to boast and obfuscate the truth led to the “Beer Hall Putsch,” where he lied about the size of his group to try and force the “Bavarian Triumvirate” to swear allegiance to him.
The Triumvirate was able to escape and rescind any promises they had made previously (at gunpoint), leading Hitler to march on Munich in an attempt to take the city by force. It failed spectacularly with several members of the Nazi party killed and wounded, but Hitler later remarked that the “blood sacrifice” of that evening had been the most effective propaganda in the push for national socialism.
Both Lenin and Pol Pot were prone to propagandizing their victories in battles that either hadn’t been fought or won yet.
During his insurrection, Lenin announced in a speech to the Petrograd Soviet that the provisional government had been overthrown by his forces - which wasn’t true.
Castro’s initial ruling over Cuba was as a shadow presidente. A politically moderate lawyer had been proclaimed to be the provisional president but Castro made the claim that he had been selected by a popular election, giving rise to the trend of using fake polls that we see so often today in an attempt to give an unpopular politician a false air of popular support.
Tying It to Today
Tracy Beanz is the only person who I see consistently railing against the “oversized megaphone” given to today’s leftists by the social media tyrants and mainstream media, but it’s something that needs to be understood and taken in context with its purpose.
The reason the left goes absolutely insane when any judge is nominated to the Supreme Court who isn’t a radical leftist is because the left knows a hard, simple truth that they don’t want you to know: their ideas really aren’t very popular, and the extreme left are very much the minority in this nation.
As covered in Justice on Trial by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino, the left understands that when it comes to a vote based on popular opinion, only a minority of Americans agree with their views on radical policies such as immigration for all, abortion on demand, free healthcare for illegal immigrants, biological men using women’s restrooms and any other number of demands from the extreme left.
Because they know the majority of Americans don’t agree with these policies, they’ve subverted the judicial system in order to pass legislation from the bench that won’t be supported by popular vote.
But as with each of the murderous Marxist dictators before them, they want you to believe that theirs is the popular opinion and that anyone who doesn’t agree with them is wrong or insane, causing anyone who disagrees to question their “wrong think.”
In order to accomplish this, they’ve subverted social media, using the algorithms and sock puppet accounts to make conservatives feel like they’re in the minority, amplifying and “giving a megaphone” to those blue checkmark accounts and vocal extreme leftist activists.
Have you ever wondered why some journalist with hundreds of thousands of followers can’t get Twitter verification (the blue checkmark) but extreme leftists with only a few hundred followers can?
It’s because they want to exaggerate their power and only amplify certain voices/points of view.
This is the same reason the media is so openly slanted to the left, with the majority of newspapers and news channels tilting all of their reporting in one direction: Orange Man Bad.
The United States of America has always been a majority center-right nation, and for those of us who follow the data and know that it’s absolutely maddening when we hear lefties claim that we’re in the minority.
It’s funny that they never take a moment to wonder: if the left were the majority in this country, why does Fox news routinely blow CNN and MSNBC out of the water when it comes to ratings?
But, again, nobody ever accused these people of being intelligent or observant.
We will discuss the media in Part IV... Stay tuned.
