“The Commies are Coming!”

In a poem written around the beginning of the 20th century by the American Poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow entitled “Paul Revere’s Ride”, the poet describes Revere’s warning to his fellow Americans about the advance of the British forces during the Revolutionary War with the rousing words while on horseback riding through the countryside to mobilize the people: “the British are coming!”. The famous poem was taught and remembered by every school child growing up during the past authoritarian era.

In today’s anti-authoritarian society, children are systematically being deprived of a perspective of historical knowledge to give them a sense of their relationship to their country, to feel respect, loyalty and gratitude to be living in this great nation. In effect, American children are being raised to be clueless about their core feelings and their relationship to their past history – a form of brainwashing. Moreover, their upbringing renders them oblivious to the events that are currently happening in their country as a result of the onslaught by far-leftist political ideologues in and out of government that have actively infiltrated American society.

Imagine if someone cried out with a sense of urgency, the rallying cry, “the Commies are coming!” (to destroy America) in today’s anti-authoritarian society what would happen? The person would either be shouted down as being politically incorrect or a lunatic, treated with contempt or the words would fall on deaf ears.


  1. In effect the last sentence in your post exposes the tragic fact that it is too late in many ways to cry “the Commies are coming” because the old time commies already came and left but their ideology and the damage that it has done has unfortunately taken hold not only in the Democratic Party but in most social institutions and in a good majority of the population to some degree.

    A reaction that I often get, when I broach the subject of how I sad it is that we have incorporated so many communist ways into our society, is one of laughter. Many think that I am just joking or looking for a reaction to see if I could fool some people into believing that what I am saying is true.

    This is why the functional thought process that brought you to discover and describe the transformation of our society from authoritarian to anti-authoritarian more accurately describes what we are living. The term communist and its implications in our daily lives has been so distorted in the minds of most that it is not useful today to explain what has actually happened over the last 100 years.

    Here is an extract from an article that I read today which presents the conventional thinking version of your post:
    So why have we become so dumb? It would be easy to blame the mainstream media for the fake news that many accept as the truth, but it’s much more nefarious than that. The plot against education goes back to Karl Marx and the Communist manifesto. I would bet that most of the children who participated in that climate protest haven’t any idea what communism is. I’ve written several columns quoting parts of The Naked Communist, written by Cleon Skousen, a former FBI agent who analyzed the 45 goals of the Manifesto, most of which had already come to fruition. These are the most pertinent to today’s culture:

    #15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. 16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights. 17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks. 18. Gain control of all student newspapers. 9. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack. 20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, and policymaking positions. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press. 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” 28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.” 29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis. 30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

    Rather than accept someone else’s analysis of the manifesto, I read the essay myself and here is my conclusion:

    Simply said, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property. All property should be owned by the state and be shared by all. The Bourgeoisie or class system is to be abolished and the proletariat or the working class will rule. Everyone is equal and the state oversees all our lives.

    See how appealing that message is for those with no ambition and with low self-esteem.; how appealing it is to those who think it is unfair that some people have more than others. How appealing this ideology is for the have-nots who are envious of the haves. How appealing that ideology is to those who don’t want to work for a living and want the state to provide for them from cradle to grave.

    This is what is being fed to our youth and children. Many of the 2020 Democrat candidates are pushing socialist programs to get elected. Now you know why.

    Make sure your children read Animal Farm.

    • Thank you, Steven
