Dee Fatouros provides an intro to some G. Edward Griffin info on Communism in America pointing out the similarities of the present to the Marxist agenda of the past. Look at today’s street chaos and the obstructionism of the Dems in Congress.
There is an hour and fifteen-minute video seminar conducted by Griffin in 1968 at the end. I mention this because you will notice a portion of the monologue would be politically incorrect today. AND YET a very informative seminar.

Understanding The Communist Role In Driving The Current Chaos In America

A fairly brief, but most informative read. I’m sure the reader will recognize much of what is being said as occurring today, class warfare, racial strife, big government, disinformation, (fake news), “protests” etc.
Like Jihad, Communism has its stages and its soldiers. The CPUSA is quite powerful in America and many members of Congress are followers. They are but one of the more effective occupants in the toolbox of the globalist drive for world domination. Many see Globalism as rebranded Communism, and indeed, there are undeniable similarities, but that is another discussion. The end game by any other name is world domination, loss of national sovereignty, and world wide totalitarian oppression of the world citizenry.
At the end of this write up is a video (made in 1969) discussing Communism in America, and its approach to fomenting internal revolution. It is prescient, an hour long, but can be listened to. By the way, this video was made when Blacks were politically correctly referred to as Negros. Do not be offended.
At 21 minutes into it, he discusses African American Manning Johnson’s awakening as to the true motives of the using Black Americans as cannon fodder for the beginning revolution which resulted in his leaving the Communist Party.
Johnson wrote an insightful book, “Color Communism And Common Sense”, in 1935 in which he exposed the truth of the Communist purported “concern” for the American Negro and its attempted manipulation of them into becoming the spearhead of the revolution in America. He also discussed the created racial divide and its intended purpose. This book is as pertinent today as was in 1935.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE PLANNED U.S. CIVIL WAR
by G. Edward Griffin
This week’s news is dominated, once again, with reports of violent demonstrations against the Trump administration. We have seen violent demonstrations before, but something new has been added that is profoundly significant. It is the rhetoric of civil war and revolution.
The organizations spouting civil-war rhetoric are following a playbook taken from the writings of Vladimir Lenin, founder of the Communist Party. It is a rhetoric that demonizes all enemies as ‘capitalist exploiters’ (in America, where there still is a latent affinity to capitalism, the word ‘Fascism’ is preferred.) and calls for an overthrow of the government. Followers are not supposed to think about what would replace it but, for those who are curious, the answer is a ‘socialist’ government responsive, not to big business, but to the people.
You may think that, boisterous as these demonstrators are, and although they can draw a few thousand youngsters to their events, they are but a tiny fraction of the population and could never pose a serious threat to any government. But how wrong you would be.
Major political changes always are achieved by minorities. All revolutions are the work of less than three percent of the population, and the American Revolution was no exception. It’s not how many people there are, but how well organized they are and where they are. If the three percenters are influential in a nation’s power centers (political parties, government agencies, courts, military, schools, activist groups, labor unions, etc.), then the odds are in their favor. The masses will follow the winners.
When you look at the rag-tag bunch carrying placards and shouting obscenities, you may be comforted thinking that they have no influence in the real power centers, but be mindful that street theater is only half the picture. Classic communist strategy involves, not one, but two types of revolution. The first is by force and violence (they call it a war of national liberation), but the other is political and peaceful (what they call a proletarian revolution).
The two are designed to work together, one from the bottom (masses in the streets) and the other from the top (agents inside government waiting for an excuse to introduce legislation that will move the nation closer to the Leninist ideal. The strategy is, not to conquer in one fell swoop, but to do so by a series of steps, each one seen by the public as a necessary compromise to end the violence.
In 1969, I delivered a lecture on this subject, entitled More Deadly than War. That was in the day when I was hanging out at the communist book store in Los Angeles doing research on collectivism, so I was loaded with communist publications to illustrate my message. The presentation was recorded on black-and-white film, released in VHS format, and then forgotten. Someone put it on YouTube about five years ago so, when we created our Reality Zone YouTube channel last year, we copied it to that collection.
It has been almost fifty years since I gave much thought to that lecture so, when I started to write this commentary, I decided to watch it again to see what I said. Frankly, I was blown away by how every point applies directly to what is happening today.
If you are interested in my analysis, here is the link. (video below)

…The Blueprint for Revolution in America….
This address by G. Edward Griffin, given in 1968, is as current as today’s headlines. Mr. Griffin shows that the Leninist strategy for conquest involves two kinds of revolution: One is violent; the other is non-violent.
While most people think only of violent revolution, the non-violent phase is where most of the action has been in the United States. Leninists call it the Proletarian Revolution and it involves the gradual transition to Marxism (which is merely one form of collectivism) by use of the ballot box. Control is achieved through economic pressures rather than guns and executions.
This program shows how Leninists utilize mass-membership organizations, politicians, and the parliamentary process to bring about totalitarianism with little opposition from those who are being subjugated.
