I believe we are seeing, in America, the beginnings of a Cultural Revolution in the style of the Chinese Cultural Revolution of the 1960's, with BLM, Antifa, and other similar organizations playing the role of the Red Guard.

Red Guards

Attacks upon the "Four Olds"

The remains of Ming dynasty Wanli Emperor at the Ming tombs. Red Guards dragged the remains of the Wanli Emperor and Empresses to the front of the tomb, where they were posthumously "denounced" and burned.
In August 1966, the 11th Plenum of the CPC Central Committee had ratified the 'Sixteen Articles', a document that stated the aims of the Cultural Revolution and the role students would be asked to play in the movement. After the 18 August rally, the Cultural Revolution Group directed the Red Guards to attack the 'Four Olds' of Chinese society (i.e., old customs, old culture, old habits, and old ideas). For the rest of the year, Red Guards marched across China in a campaign to eradicate the 'Four Olds'. Old books and art were destroyed, museums were ransacked, and streets were renamed with new revolutionary names, adorned with pictures and the sayings of Mao. Many famous temples, shrines, and other heritage sites in Beijing were attacked.

The Cemetery of Confucius was attacked in November 1966 by a team of Red Guards from Beijing Normal University, led by Tan Houlan. The corpse of the 76th-generation Duke Yansheng was removed from its grave and hung naked from a tree in front of the palace during the desecration of the cemetery.

Attacks on other cultural and historic sites occurred between 1966 and 1967. One of the greater damages was to the Ming Dynasty Tomb of the Wanli Emperor in which his and the empress' corpses, along with a variety of artifacts from the tomb, were destroyed by student members of the Red Guard. Between the assaults on Wan Li and Confucius' tombs alone, more than 6,618 historic Chinese artifacts were destroyed in the desire to achieve the goals of the Cultural Revolution.

Individual property was also targeted by Red Guard members if it was considered to represent one of the Four Olds.Commonly, religious texts and figures would be confiscated and burned. In other instances, items of historic importance would be left in place, but defaced, with examples such as Qin Dynasty scrolls having their writings partially removed, and stone and wood carvings having the faces and words carved out of them.



Does any of this sound familiar?

Could also be a continuation and amplification of the cultural Marxism movements that have been here for scores and decades.🦇🦃🐰

Bolshevik revolution or Color Revolution, take your pick but make no mistake about it, We Are At War. Politicians arresting police for doing their job. Politicians openly violating their oath of office and nothing being done about it. It's going to be a bloody winter.

For any “revolution” to affect real change, not to mention, lasting “success”, a significant proportion of the impacted population must willingly embrace the ideals of the revolution.

Otherwise, the revolution fails as just another “passing fad” and the cultural status quo re-establishes itself.

I am glad others are beginning to see this too.

Similarities tearing down the old history, public shaming, narcing on relatives of those who did not tow the party line. Have seen videos of children calling their parents Nazi's for being conservative. Next in the revolution came public executions, remember Chaz mock guillotine? They have begun to turn on prior leaders on the left who are not pure enough for their evolving morality of the cancel culture similar to the execution of the leadership during the French revolution.

No, it doesn’t. It sounds like he is viewing the times we are in with clarity.

Not even close. The comparison is a stretch at best. More likely just trying to self-validate his new level of wokeness.

Call me when kids are shooting their parents for owning a book.

Right now, it's a psychological war on the people with the goal of browbeating everyone to the point of not resisting it anymore (still isn't working too well on the bulk of the population, but they're definitely doing it)

Seeker is right and you are wrong. Deal with it.

They'll learn sooner or later than an armed populace can't be taken over or controlled.

I guess they forgot how they failed to disarm the population which has more guns than national population and tens of trillions of rounds of ammunition.

Interesting!

I can proudly say "Over my dead body" when it comes to any sort of socialism/communism, simply because Article 4 Section 4 commands every state in the Union shall have a Republican form of government. Anything *less* than that is unconstitutional and warrants an immediate overwhelming response. Its what I'd call a "red line" and unlike the cowards of the past administration, this is one duty we will not shirk.

Don't feel bad for your opinion, I'm right there with you.

I'm sick and tired of these LWNJs bringing mayhem, chaos and carnage to our streets. They are anti-Americans yet a certain percentage of the populace wants to pretend their ideas are valid/legitimate but just "different"

They aren't merely difference in opinion or policy, their ideology is objectively wrong and must be dumped into the dustbin of history at any cost.

Not at any cost. Not at the cost of our principles. Not at the cost of the Constitution.

Their ideology must be defeated within the framework we have created or else we have become that which we fight.

Classic reverse psychology, passive-aggressive tactics

1. Social group B takes umbrage with another social group, let's call them group W
2. Group B takes to the streets; commit acts of rage, violence, terrorism; demonize group W
3. When group W stands up and says "Actually no, you're not going to tear down statues, threaten to burn churches, loot, riot and attack; we won't tolerate this", then group B's retort "what? what!? whu'd we do?? See group W! They're horrible racists itchin' for a civil war"

Did I not see a thread posted here about some large gathering around a self-proclaimed black militia pointing guns in the direction of passing motorists, talking about reparations, and seizing the state of Texas? Am I imagining all this, or is there video footage, maybe I'm remembering this wrong.

So none of these actions are provocations in your mind?

Cognitive dissonance at it's finest.

They are hiding behind our principles. I agree the Constitution must be untouched, and that includes all tactics Constitutionally accepted: from civil war to prison camps (exclusion zones)

Those have been devices used historically and have passed Constitutional muster

The threat must be ended and put down so it can never return

Just my 2c

Does a mechanism exist to strip large groups of citizenship on the ground of dereliction?

Well the same goes for the extremists on the left who want chaos.

Anyone who talks of civil war does not seem level headed to me.

I would like to see a resurgence of ethnic cultures, not some new world order communist revolution.

I'd like to see my Bohemian roots celebrated with lots of cabbage dishes served along with some good Pilsner beer. The Czechoslovakians are a hard working and intelligent people, where is the recognition in the form of festivals much less a revolution to return to our ethnic cultural roots?

Sounds like a form of discrimination to me, esp. considering that the Slavic people (and many others) were enslaved by the Ancient Romans. Of course you won't see a sign that says "Czech Lives Matter" will you?
