As mentioned the facts are available to all and are plain as day but you first have to be willing to see them.  I recommend you look up some old interviews with Yuri Bezmenov on Youtube, who was an ex-KGB officer granted asylum in the 1970s.  The processes he talks about already being finalized in the 1980s you can see being revealed quite clearly in recent years.

edit: Here's the short version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgCnpCBORyM

And like Jeanette mentioned, they are not hiding their goals, they are quite open about all of it if you actually listen to what they say.  There is no excuse for ignorance on this matter, given our ease of access to information and the numerous disaster's that communism has wrought in recent history.  If you really want an eye opener lookup what people from Eastern Europe who previously were under the yoke of the USSR think about what's happening in Western Europe and the USA.  They are horrified because they understand exactly where these socialist policies lead.

I watched this YOUTUBE video. Interesting.

The guy says in 1985 that "DEMORALIZATION" occurred in the USA.  35 years ago.

Er, I don't think so. Instead the USSR collapsed. That's what really happened.

So, it's hard to take anything this YURI dude says seriously... as he was so completely wrong.

My belief is that the freedoms we enjoy in the USA will save us. And it is the freedoms in the USA that other nations around the world see...

I am completely optimistic about the future of the USA...conspiracy theories are for the paranoid. Paranoid people, for instance, like McCarthy

The USSR is dead but the bad ideas that brought it to life sadly are not.  I agree the freedoms we have in this country will save us, however those very freedoms are under direct assault from all sides.  So good luck when we wake up one morning and realize the very things that protected us for so long have been slowly eroded to the point of being mere lip-service.  That is the entire point.

If you don't recognize that our freedoms are under assault then I'm inclined to think you are not paying attention.

Real freedom also means allowing Socialists to have their say.

Whether you agree with them or not.

That's the beauty of the USA.

Everyone gets their say.

Whipping up paranoia when the folks a person doesn't agree with...do have their say isn't really American according to our Constitution.

That Yuri dude in the video should've been warning the USSR about "destabilization".  Considering what happened. That video is ironic, really.

Everyone is trying to sell you their agenda in this world.  Like the used car biz...But the great thing in the USA is that a person is free not to buy that used car.

I have never said to limit anyone's say or speech and I'm not whipping up paranoia.  I am pointing out, however, that this country is too far gone to one side and needs a shift back to it's original founding principles, and that starts with awareness of the world as it is.

You have to feel sorry for the children. The judicial system lacked a protection system and NYS makes it hard to carry a gun.

AH the cult of Trump is everywhere.   It would help if the people worried about socialism, knew what it is.

The evidence is there all you have to do is open your eyes.  Here's some more evidence:

I believe that because we live in NYC, our view of the USA is far more diverse than the USA actually is.
From my research,

Total population % of Latinx in the USA = 18%
Total population % of African-American in the USA = 12%

I realize that living here our view of the USA is skewed (for the better, let me add)
but the hard numbers show that in its entirety the USA is mostly White.

AOC is looking at the USA thro a Queens/Bronx lens. In which it appears that a great majority are Latinx etc...

And that might be the flaw in her logic/viewpoint... when it comes to extrapolating to 100% of the whole USA population.

I also think Trump possesses a similar flaw in his view of the USA since he's from New York.
Population % of Jews in the entire USA is 2.1%... Trump also apparently sees the USA thro a NYC lens.

Further thinking about this. This is the trouble with identity politics. It doesn't factor in that the identity of the majority of the USA  is not so diverse. (Outside of NYC, that is.) And if Democrats like AOC set the game as identity politics, the rest of the USA will also play identity politics. White identity politics. And that's the majority in the USA.

Thus identity politics is a losing strategy. From the get-go. (Outside of NYC)

Identity-politics is divisive by nature, and by intent.  It can be nothing but.  It is a double headed snake, for once you destroy your "opponent" you will suddenly find that you yourself have become the new opponent.  The ideology demands an "other" always.  Right now it is the White majority, but it isn't going to end there.  Sooner or later those who are promoting this insanity will find themselves on the chopping block.

clearly, heterosexual white men are the most oppressed members of our society. we need to protect them like we once did the bald eagle. they are in danger of disappearing.
