It’s American Marxism vs. the American Spirit: Who Will Win? | Opinion

The hallmark of the American spirit is rooted in the belief that the United States of America is the most successful, prosperous free nation to ever exist in the history of the world. 

Today, American patriots proudly bleed red, white, and blue. We hang our hats on the knowledge that America has done more good deeds for the world than any other country, that our story is one of heroism and greatness, and that the Declaration of Independence unites all our country’s citizens together under one house, regardless of religion, race, or color.  

This idea of patriotism never used to be controversial. Today, anyone who flies an American flag from their front porch could easily be labeled an extremist by those who follow a narrative that America was never a great place to begin with, and that our history, in all sense of the idea, needs to be rectified. That we need to tear down the entire system.

The hijacking of the American ideals – this anti-Americanism – by many left-wing groups is a true reality that has reached our shores. This has been accelerated over the years with cultural cubbyholes whereby everything has the ability to become politicized and propagandized by those who would wish to see this country ideologically destroyed. 

Those who are awake see what these zealot groups are working towards. Contrary to what the media tells us, it’s truly things like indoctrination, taking power away from the states, and the redistribution of wealth that are the real threats this country faces. 

Certainly, it can seem that the far-left cares more about destroying our history and spirit more than they do about things like modern-day American economics or protecting our borders.

But now more than ever, patriots are standing up to defend the United States and its founding principles. It has become a battle of victimology and repentance vs. entrepreneurship and benevolence.

Will the country eventually divide itself? Red vs. blue? Pro vs. anti-Americanism? 

The real battle? It’s for the hearts and minds of the people. 

Together, we the people will patriotically rise to the occasion. 

We’ve got a country to save.
