The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ The Red Wave

Commu- In political and social sciences, communism (from Latin communis, “common, universal”) is the philosophical, social, political, and economic ideology and movement whose ultimate goal is the establishment of the communist society, which is a socioeconomic order structured upon the common (collective) ownership of the means of production and the absence of social classes, money and the state.
nism- a political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs.
Looking back on the America I grew up in, I am realizing how Communism in its infancy was kind of cute…like little baby dragons. How romantic and tender it was, with flowers in our hair and the music of Pan stirring our souls. But the cute baby grew up to be Smaug…not so romantic anymore. No more flowers, only the threat of the greatest fire the world has ever known. Just the other day, I was thinking about childhood friends through the years on into adulthood who I have loved and lost…all swept away by the Red Wave.
Communism, once a national or regional disease, has become a global disorder invited by the “mental disorder” known as Liberalism. It took root here in the U.S. back in the late 30’s as the Frankfurt School of Marxist thinkers forced to flee the growing Nazi threat in Europe. They found a welcoming home at New York’s Columbia University. Every twisted perversion of our Judeo-Christian Culture and Constitutional Republic can be traced back to this…infection. It’s an infection that enters the body by way of seduction really. Why tie one’s self up with all of this silly, outdated rigid and restrictive Judeo-Christian mumbo jumbo of creeds and rules, when one can truly free one’s mind and body? I will tell you as a young teenager growing up in the “counter-culture” 60’s under the harsh rule of an overbearing task-master father, I bought into the seduction hook, line, and sinker.
But here dear friend is our saving grace. Grace is the gift from God we truly do not deserve. In our American DNA, there exists a very important something that’s hard to define or describe. It’s a combination of things that include common sense, courage, hunger for truth, and true justice. If I had to sum it all up and give it a term, I’d call it a BS Meter. Sadly, judging by the attitudes and expressions on college campuses, it appears the younger generation has come poorly equipped. Any number of them on any given day can be found signing petitions to freely relinquish their God-given Rights. Our generation rebelled against top-down government and institutional authority. Theirs is begging for it! That dear friend is the devastating power of the Red Wave.
When the dragon was just a teenager himself, we were blessed with great men who knew how to handle him. President Reagan steered our Ship of State, and the man who knew the dragon 1st hand, Pope John Paul ll, led the Catholic Church. The dragon was effectively contained. But the disease introduced into our cultural bloodstream by the Frankfurt School advanced beneath the surface, attacking our immune system and making way for the most philosophically un-American President ever to occupy the White House…and to compound the disaster…the most un-Catholic Pope to ever occupy the Vatican. The Red Wave grew into the present day Global Tsunami.
Early last year a group of us Oath Keepers attended a Village Board meeting to support our local police after the local Red Wave Society demanded the Blue Line be removed because they found it offensive to the other Red Wave offspring known as Black Lives Matter. The Red Wave Mayor was naturally sympathetic to their demands and had appeased them BEFORE the meeting by transforming the Blue Line into a red, white, and blue line. The Red Wave met the Patriot Wave and completely disintegrated there in the Village Hall…as all lies eventually do. The Blue Line was restored.
The disease has fully metastasized as a global Corporate/Communist/Islamic mutation that seems to want WWlll. What I saw as a Globalist Kristallnacht struck the United States and Europe last week, setting the stage for the Final Act. Springtime, usually the time of birth and renewal, began with the launch of 100 missiles. Yesterday I marched with 500 of my brothers and sisters in Albany as part of the National “Stand Up For America” Day. We surrounded the office of our Red Wave Governor with chants of “Cuomo’s Got To Go”! The truth is I don’t know where he will go. The fact is none of us know where any of this goes from here. If you’ve ever found yourself body-surfing under a huge collapsing wave that pounds you into complete disorientation, that is what the crashing effect of the Red Wave seems to have on us at the moment. What we do know is that one of us has put his faith in man, and the other his trust in God. Time should tell…it always has, and it always will. www.oathkeepers.org
