Did you know that President Trump declared November 7, 2017 as our “National Day for the Victims of Communism?” The day of remembrance was intended to remind America of the extreme amount of mass murder and misery the Communist Party has wrought on the world since it recently celebrated its 100-year anniversary of the forced takeover of the Soviet Union.
Each year the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation performs a survey of American attitudes toward the evil doctrines of Communism. This year’s survey was conducted October, 2017 and billed as the “Annual Report on US Attitudes toward Socialism.” I’m going to summarize some of the findings from that survey and let you be the judge. How aware are we as a country of the very real dangers of the deadly doctrine of Communism?
For openers, only 31 percent of Americans know what Communism is, according to the survey. The primary reason I wrote the book The Hypnotic Communist was to educate and warn my fellow Americans of this satanic organization’s objectives, methods, and activities. [Looks like I still have a lot of work to do].
Let me summarize some of the other findings below. [Note: Their survey treated Communism, Socialism, and Fascism as separate concepts. But as I argue in my book, Socialism and fascism are not conceptually distinct from Communism. They’re all just different flavors of the same poison: Communism].
The 2017 Annual Report on US Attitudes Towards Socialism found the following:
- Sixty percent view our former president Ron Reagan as a hero, but 40 percent view Bernie Sanders, an admitted Communist, also as an American hero.
- Only 4 percent of baby boomers and 3 percent of older Americans believe Communism has never been a problem, but this contrasts with 12 percent of Millennials who believe it has never been a problem for humanity. [This should be considered a measure of the degree of Communist hypnotic propaganda’s influence].
- Thirty-two percent of Millennials view the founder of Communism, Karl Marx, favorably.
- Fifty-eight percent of Millennials prefer Communism over Capitalism compared to 41 percent of the general population. [I added Socialism, Fascism, and Communism percentages together to come up with a single measure of the Communist worldview].
- Only 51% of Millennials correctly define Capitalism compared to 67 percent of all Americans.
- Only 44 percent of Millennials would be offended if they were called a Communist versus 63 percent of Americans.
- Forty-eight percent of Americans think our economic systems works against them, but 53% of Millennials do.
- Seventy-three percent of Americans believe all speech should be protected.
The reason I cited Millennials so much is that this segment, those born between the early 1980s and the mid-1990s, appears to be the most left-leaning segment of the US general population. They are still young adults but they are now about to become upper-level decision-makers, and a person’s values and worldviews directly influence the decisions they make. What do you think? Will Millennials come to appreciate Capitalist America or push us closer to becoming The Soviet States of Amerika?
