"'All men are created equal' says the American Declaration of Independence. All men shall be kept equal' say the Socialists." Winston Churchill
When the Berlin Wall fell and the former Soviet Union collapsed people around the world celebrated the demise of communism and the philosophy of Karl Mark. We thought that after 70 years and over 60,000 million dead this evil system had finally, like Nazism, been consigned to the trash heap of history. Only in places like Cuba, Rwanda, Venezuela, and China were the last vestiges of Marxism and Leninism left. Even China, the largest of the communist countries, has changed from a pure communist state in the image of Mao Tse Tung to one of an totalitarian state where capitalism reigns.
Well, Marxist Communism is not dead in the United States. We still have thousands of useful idiots roaming our college campuses and the internet. The latest example is the tour of the Little Red Bus. What, you ask is the Little Red Bus Well; it’s a touring group of Marxists traveling around the country peddling their Marxists utopian philosophy. It‘s communism that’s about 40 feet long and rolls along on four wheels and it could be coming to a town near you. They believe all our problems are caused by the evils of capitalism, and of course racism.
The Southern California Young Communist League (YCL), a branch of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), announced on its website that it’s launching a “National Red School-Bus Tour.” The YCL calls each stop on the tour “weekend long schools” for “young activists.” So what exactly is this tour all about?
The blog P/Oed Patriot broke the story after it went digging. Here’s what it found: According to the SoCal YCL’s website the “Schools” will include: “lively classes and discussions: Marxism and the Political Moment: Building the movement for change; The Crisis of Capitalism Today: Causes of Crisis and the Class Struggle; Working Class and the Labor Movement; Racism, Immigrant Rights, women’s rights, LGTB rights and the struggle for equality; The CPUSA and YCL, envisioning Bill of Rights Socialism and how to get there. Also plenty of cultural, social and recreational activities.” The group even has a video advertising the event:
The YCL doesn’t say exactly what the above-mentioned classes will include. But P/Oed Patriot, who notes that the Southern California YCL has a motto of “youth unite and fight,” wonders if the group’s mission statement could offer a glimpse. According to that statement, violent revolution is sometimes a necessary part of the “struggle”:
“We do not believe in violence simply as a means to an end. However, we support all forms of revolution, which historically have included violent forms but only were they successful or lasting and positive when the circumstances had called for it, when the assessment was correct (under fascism, extremely repressive and life-threatening conditions are set in place and creates justifiable responses) and ultimately if the end result is the achievement of a democratic, just society.”
That leaves P/Oed Patriot left with one question: Can we assume that if the conditions were right where a Violent Communist/Socialist Revolution could be Lasting and Successful that they would attempt it? Conditions like — let’s say — an Economic Crisis/Financial Meltdown in the United States?
Nah.. That’s Crazy…It would Never Happen
The tour is set to make stops in Los Angeles, Texas, Florida, and the Northeast between February and April. So if you see a large, red school bus rolling down the street, it’s not Elmo peddling free internet, it’s just your friendly neighborhood communists.
It seems that our colleges and universities have been turning out these useful idiots while we have been basking in the sunlight of the end of the Cold War. The radical, leftists professors who fill our universities have no idea of what communism is or stands for. Many of them have been indoctrinated by a past generation of leftist and are now passing their clap trap on to a new generation of youth who are sopping it up like a drunk swigs booze.
I have seen, first hand, the effects a communist government has on its people. These bone-headed radical professors and their wild eyed protégés have never set foot in a country suffering under a communist dictatorship. Believe me it is no utopia. Why is it that the people who have lived under communism were so happy to shed its yoke while those what have grown up and flourished in freedom are so anxious to embrace the immorality and evils of communism? Communism is alive and well in California.
