“‘Мы вас похороним!’ [We will bury you!]”, Nikita Khrushchev Premier of the former Soviet Union at reception at the Polish embassy in Moscow on November 18, 1956.
Today many are seeing the collapse of the American economy, end of morality from the school house to the White House and attacks on the inalienable people’s rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as the end of our unique Constitutional Republic called the United States of America.
The Premier of the former Soviet Union Nikita Khrushchev made a number of predictions about America that we present herein to allow our readers to determine if they are coming true.
Nikita Khrushchev’s Predictions
“You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you. We’ll so weaken your economy until you’ll fall like overripe fruit into our hands.”
We have seen socialism spread across America since before the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. It began with the formation of the Intercollegiate Socialist Society which was a socialist student organization active from 1905 to 1921. The first slate of officers elected at the Sept. 1905 organizational meeting included the following: President: Jack London; First Vice President: Upton Sinclair; Second Vice President: Graham Phelps Stokes; Secretary: M.R. Holbrook; Treasurer: Rev. Owen Lovejoy; Executive Committee: Rev. George Willis Cooke, Morris Hillquit, Robert Hunter, Harry Laidler, Katherine M. Meserole, George H. Strobell. Of this group of socialist worthies, only Harry Laidler was actually a current college student.
This was the first gullibility of the American people—embracing the world-wide movement of “industrial democracy” known as socialism.
This was followed by Charles Emil Rothenberg, an American Marxist politician, who on September 1, 1919 founded and became head of the Communist Party USA.
In an article titled “Antonio Gramsci: the Godfather of Cultural Marxism” Bradley Thomas wrote:
There’s little debate that modern-day American universities, public education, mainstream media, Hollywood, and political advocacy groups are dominated by leftists. This is no accident, but part of a deliberate strategy to pave the way for communist revolution developed more than eight decades ago by an Italian political theorist named Antonio Gramsci. [Emphasis added]
Upon this foundation came the next inevitable step—the weakening of America’s economy.
The Weakening of America’s Economy
“We do not have to invade the United States, we will destroy you from within.”
To destroy America from within one must control the U.S. economy. This control of the economy began on December 23, 1913, when Democrat President Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act into law—a decentralized central bank that balanced the competing interests of private banks and populist sentiment.
This was followed by The Social Security Act which was signed into law by Democrat President Franklin D. Roosevelt on August 14, 1935. In addition to several provisions for general welfare, the Act created a social insurance program designed to pay retired workers age 65 or older a continuing income after retirement. It taxed every single America to provide money for a system. As a result of changes to Social Security enacted in 1983, benefits are now expected to be payable in full on a timely basis until 2037, when the trust fund reserves are projected to become exhausted.
This was followed by The Great Society which was a set of domestic programs in the United States launched by Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964–65. In a book titled Great Society: A New History published in 2019, Amity Shlaes noted,
“[J]ust as the 1960s forgot the failures of the 1930s, we today forget the failures of the 1960s.”
Shlaes’ detailed description and telling digression that traces the arc from the unbridled hopes of the early Sixties to the enormous administrative expansion of the “second New Deal” to the missteps in implementing it that became all too apparent in the Seventies.
This expansion of government was accelerated under the Obama, Obamacare’s take over of the entire U.S. healthcare system, and now the Biden administrations Build Back Better Agenda.
Our Grandchildren living under Socialism
I can prophecy that your grandchildren in America will live under socialism — Our firm conviction is that sooner or later Capitalism will give way to Socialism. Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you.
Today many Americans fear for their children and grandchildren. Socialism has become part and parcel of the indoctrination of our children and grandchildren from the public schools, colleges and universities, to woke companies, to the media and social media and now permeates our federal government including our military.
Let me give some examples of what I mean by wokeness.
In 2015, then Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus rejected out-of-hand a Marine Corps study concluding that gender-integrated combat formations did not move as quickly or shoot as accurately, and that women were twice as likely as men to suffer combat injuries. He rejected it because it did not comport with the Obama administration’s political agenda.
That same year the Department of Defense opened all combat jobs in the U.S. military to women, and Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter committed to “gender-neutral standards” to ensure that female servicemembers could meet the demanding rigors involved in qualifying for combat. Since then, the Army has been working for a decade to put in place the gender-neutral test promised by Carter. But after finding that women were not scoring as highly as men, and under fierce pressure from advocacy groups, the Army threw out the test. Now there is no test to determine whether any soldier can meet the fitness requirements for combat specialties.
In 2015, near the end of his second term, President Obama initiated a change to the Pentagon’s longstanding policy on transgender individuals in the military. Before that change could take effect, the incoming Trump administration put it on hold awaiting future study. Subsequent evidence presented to Secretary of Defense James Mattis—including the fact that transgender individuals suffering from gender dysphoria attempt suicide and experience severe anxiety at nine times the rate of the general population—raised legitimate concerns about their fitness for military service.
This led the Trump administration to impose reasonable restrictions on military service by those suffering gender dysphoria. But only hours after his inauguration in January 2021, President Biden signed an executive order that did away with these restrictions and opened military service to all transgender individuals. Since then, the Biden administration has decreed that active members of the military can take time off from their duties to obtain sex-change surgeries and all related hormones and drugs at taxpayer expense.
Along similar lines, the Biden administration has recently ended support for a longstanding policy prohibiting individuals infected with HIV from serving in combat zones. The policy had been based on sound science tied to the need for HIV medications and the danger of cross-infection through shared blood.
Physical fitness has long been a hallmark of the U.S. military. But in recent years, fitness standards have been progressively watered down in pursuit of the woke goal of “leveling the playing field.” The Army, for instance, recently lowered its minimum passing standards for pushups to an unimpressive total of ten and increased its minimum two-mile run time from 19 to 23 minutes. The new Space Force is considering doing away with periodic fitness testing altogether.
Back in 2016, Navy Secretary Mabus decreed that Navy sailors would no longer be known by traditional job titles such as “corpsman,” adopting instead new gender-neutral titles such as “medical technician.” The resulting blowback was so severe from enlisted sailors who cherished those historic titles that the Navy was forced to reverse the changes. But wokeness has a way of coming back, and last year the Navy released a training video to help sailors understand the proper way of using personal pronouns—a skill Americans have traditionally mastered in grade school. The video instructs servicemembers that they need to create a “safe space for everybody” by using “inclusive language”—for instance, saying “hey everybody” instead of “hey guys.” Can the return of gender-neutral job titles be far behind?
The Bottom Line: Woke is Code for Socialism
Much of the emphasis of wokeness today is on promoting the idea that America is fatally flawed by systemic racism and white privilege. Our fighting men and women are required to sit through indoctrination programs, often with roots in the Marxist tenets of critical race theory, either by Pentagon diktat or through carelessness by senior leaders who delegate their command responsibilities to private Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion instructors.
Corporations (e.g. Disney, Apple, Facebook, CNN, etc.) have gone woke and by doing so are going broke. Hollywood is producing socialist (woke) propaganda films and TV series that we have reported on repeatedly.
Nikita Khrushchev said,
“I once said, ‘We will bury you,’ and I got into trouble with it. Of course we will not bury you with a shovel. Your own working class will bury you.“
The push to go full communist is on and the American people are seeing it’s policies when they buy groceries, gasoline, clothing, homes and even baby formula.
Today Democrats care more about aborting babies, open borders, disarming law abiding citizens and climate change myths than building up traditional families, making people independent, and job creation. Building a strong military to protect and defend American from all enemies foreign and domestic is of little interest to Democrats. While Democrats promote diversity, inclusion and equity our enemies laugh at the U.S.
America is not being buried by the working class rather it is being buried by the political class from the school house to the White House!
Democrats and their allies are burying us! History is repeating itself.
