Notice that he also mentioned the Nazis.
So, what is he really concerned about? "Marxism?' I don't think any government in history has successfully implemented Marxism. They just called what they were doing by that name. Step back, and what he seems to be concerned about is a covert totalitarianism. With the Nazis it was quite overt, and it targeted the Jews and the gypsies in particular. In the USSR it became more covert and targeted dissidents, among others. Similar in China. And what we see in the US is that dissidents are again being targeted. And now that the religious Right is in the crosshairs, this guy is really concerned!
But he's only seeing (or only talking about) the surface appearance of what's going on. He sees "Marxists" attacking "American values." But it's not really Marxists who are doing the attacking. And it's not just American values that are getting attacked. Anything standing in the way of "the plan" (assume for a moment that there is "a plan." You can always look up the Georgia Guidestones if you doubt it.) has, in its turn, been targeted for overt or covert attack. These attacks are carried out (ideally) in a context of ideological antagonism designed to be so confusing that what is really happening will not be noticed until it's too late, or until it can be used (like the holocaust was) to fuel or motivate another step in "the plan."
As far as I'm concerned, this guy is playing into their game. He's calling names. He is trying to instigate an "anti-Marixism" campaign rather than something that would be positive and that wouldn't involve getting someone locked up or killed.
We will not be free of this scourge until someone can think up a game, and then get us to play it, where everyone wins.
