A relatively small group of very powerful people, all globalists, all anti-American, all progressive fascists (totalitarian socialists) have been in control of almost all the major institutions of power, propaganda and control. The Russian "revolution" was not remotely a revolt of the masses embracing the communist ideologies of Marx, Lenin or Trotsky, it was the imposition of a tyrannical system on an ignorant and tired nation by a small group of revolutionaries with a purpose.
The real people of America are not buying it, however we are not as focused, not as well-funded as the radical elites trying to destroy this nation, a goal of generations. The wealth, power and sophistication of the true fascists, the progressives seeking to eliminate free speech, to rewrite history, to create chaos and race wars and impose a police state regime that will destroy every freedom of all of those that are not already totally indoctrinated into the groupthink, the newspeak and revisionist history demanded by those that seek to enslave us all. I have said this for several years now, this is not an ideological battle, though it is made to appear as such to keep the dumbed down, historically illiterate "left" engaged. It is about control. It is about keeping hidden the treasons, corruption and murders of the hidden hands and the Deep State and corporate puppeteers. It may need to come to civil war.
