Marxist Revolution in the Making in America, Expert Warns

There is a phenomenon being observed in America today, “an attempt at changing reality” to foster a new Marxist revolution, said Mike Gonzalez, an author of two books on this topic.

According to Marxist thought, “reality is just put together by our conceptual framework,“ Gonzalez told EpochTV’s “Crossroads” program.

“So what we see with Black Lives Matter, what we see with the 1619 Project … is to replace the American narrative, to replace the idea of America from: all men are created equal, we’re all free … with this idea that we’re an awful country, that our history is hideous, that our system is racist itself—that the system must be changed.”

Most people believe that reality cannot be changed because they believe in an ultimate and fundamental truth, in natural law, or in God, but Marxists do not believe in any of that, Gonzalez said.

Black Lives Matter (BLM) used the death of George Floyd as an excuse to change society, Gonzalez explained, “to dismantle the organizing principle of society”—in the words of BLM co-founder Alicia Garza.

Gonzalez said that the concept of Black Lives Matter is “unimpeachable.”

“Seven billion people on earth matter. And we’re all children of God. But I think it’s important—given our history—to affirm that the lives of our black co-citizens, compatriots, matter because we know the history.”

But Black Lives Matter is also the movement and the organization BLM Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF), said Gonzalez, a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation.

The BLM founders say that they were trained Marxists, the expert noted.

Patrisse Cullors, a BLM co-founder said in an interview with Real News Network in 2015, “We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia [Garza] in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists.”

“Cullors trained for a decade as a radical organizer in the Labor/Community Strategy Center, established and run by Eric Mann, a former member of the Weather Underground, the 1960s radical faction identified by the FBI as a domestic terrorist group,” Gonzalez wrote for the Heritage Foundation.

The group, originally called “Weathermen,” explained in its 1969 foundational statement that they were dedicated to “the destruction of U.S. imperialism and the achievement of a classless world: world communism.”

Alicia Garza, a co-founder of BLM, was trained by the School of Unity and Liberation (SOUL), an institution founded by Harmony Goldberg, Ph. D., a scholar in cultural anthropology, Gonzalez said.

Goldberg is also an expert on Antonio Gramsci (pdf), the founder of Italy’s communist party in the 1920s and a Marxist intellectual. She understands Gramsci’s theory of the war of position, the concept of recruiting people, organizing them, training them, and convincing them to replace one culture with another culture, Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez cited the words of Gramsci, who said that in the West, in societies with strong civic society, you need to have a war of position.

Gramsci likened political “warfare” to military warfare, where the war of position is akin “to trench warfare, settling in for a long-term struggle with strategic smaller victories to gain more territory bit by bit,” as opposed to the warfare of movement which is like “a rapid military attack,” Bradley Thomas, a libertarian activist, and writer wrote for the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE).

“In other words, you have to take the worker, infiltrate them, indoctrinate them, teach them that the family was a form of oppression, teach them that the nation-state was a form of oppression, teaching that private property led to war and more oppression. And that is what we have today, except here in America, we practice it through the lens of the race with critical race theory,” Gonzales said.
