My weekly personal note to ACWT members and listeners…

Wokeism IS Marxism. 


Keep this simple and undeniable truth in mind. It explains what is happening to America, and how today’s unprecedented chaos, craziness, and tyranny are all tied together, dangerously and ideologically.


The Flag Officers 4 America Open Letter from Retired Generals and Admirals released on May 14th of this year is an eloquent and powerful statement by brave and patriotic retired service members that bluntly starts out by saying “Our Nation is in deep peril.” It defines the conflict dividing America as one between “Socialism and Marxism,” as opposed to “Supporters of Constitutional freedom and liberty.” Then it spells out some of the many ways that the Marxist attack on America’s freedom is being carried out: via abandonment of the border, failure to stand up to China, censoring of speech, misuse and abuse of the military, etc. This letter is well worth the read.


Now the Committee to Support and Defend, another group of brave and patriotic former military officers, has issued their Open Letter from Retired U.S. Military: Support and Defend, also warning about powerful sources bringing Socialism and Marxism to America. Their warning is equally dire, articulate, and powerful. They call out the dismantling of the rule of law, the erosion of fair elections, the politicization and ideological purging of our military, and more. This letter is also well worth the read.


These two groups have now locked arms. They are comprised of honorable veterans who are still warriors for America. They are calling out the many and varied ways in which America is under attack, and connecting the dots between seemingly unrelated events, connecting them to the same ideological root of Marxism.


America is under attack by Marxism and Marxists. We all need to see it and say it.   Whether it is falsely claiming that legislation requiring voter ID is racially discriminatory, attempting to seize and hold on to power by permanently giving DC Democrats control over elections (HR 1 & S1) , or the evisceration of our military strength, or it is pushing the CRT agenda in schools so kids are taught to hate each other based on skin color, and to hate America too, or the newly announced plan to regulate ‘misinformation’ online by regulating speech the leftists in power don’t want Americans to hear, or the abandonment of our southern border, we are watching the quasi-peaceful but brazenly determined Marxist attempted overthrow of America. Our families, culture, military, educational systems, are all under attack from the same ugly and destructive ideological force.


Much of this attack is sold to the ignorant masses as “wokeism,” a term that implies that you are enlightened if you agree with the Marxist agenda. The Woke support Marxists because they have no idea what those Marxists are trying to do. The Woke are asleep at the wheel, aiding and abetting America’s destroyers, without even knowing it.


The great news is that these two groups of retired veterans are speaking up.  So are thousands and maybe millions of other Americans.


Everyone has a role in fighting this attack on America. Speak up in your churches, schools, school board meetings, and community about the fact that Marxism underlies the “woke” agenda, and  is designed to divide and then destroy America.  Tell  them that  institutional or systemic racism is a lie, a fabrication concocted to keep us divided. Speak up for freedom and free markets and speak the truth that Socialism and Marxism breed misery. Refuse to participate in the CRT, SJW, BLM and any other leftist agenda. Fight back against the lies that cross your path. Speak up in your world.


Fight back too by celebrating America’s goodness. Speak about it, tell your kids and your friends and your family about America’s greatness.  Celebrate July 4th by reading the Declaration of Independence.  Help build the groundswell of love of America, in your everyday conversations. Be the one who speaks up in your world.


This is what I try to do every day on AmericaCanWeTalk.  I’ll talk to you next week. I can’t wait!
