At the Chinese Communist Party’s 20th Congress in October 2022, Xi Jinping’s report included the following statement: “Over the past decade, we have stayed committed to Marxism-Leninism, Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory…” Karl Marx was a scumbag (study his life), Deng Xiaoping was the thug who killed over 3,000 protesters at Tiananmen Square in June 1989, and Mao Zedong was the greatest mass murderer in human history (read more about him here). These men are the forerunners and mentors of Leftists in America today. This is the Left, folks. Study history to find out more about what these men were and believed. And thus, what their American offspring have in store for our country.

 In this article, I want to home in on Vladimir Lenin, who Xi also mentioned, and who was the major instigator and theoretician of the communist revolution in Russia in 1917. I only have space to share with you a few quotes from this man whom, again, the Left idolizes. You’ll get an idea of what Lenin was and what the Left is.

1. “We must hate—hatred is the basis of communism. Children must be taught to hate their parents if they are not communists.” Hate is indeed a major characteristic of the Left; it is probably the main motivation for most of them. They have no clue what love is. Contrast Lenin’s words with the following: "But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you” (Jesus, Matthew 5:44). Which system would you rather live under?

2. “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” Most decent people think lying is wrong, but not Leftists. Anything to advance the cause is morally acceptable. And American Leftists certainly follow this adage of Lenin, hoping the American people will eventually accept their lies as truth. Sadly, too many do.

3. “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” This is frightening but is one of the reasons the Left is trying to “groom” children now. Indoctrinate them, as early as possible, with Leftist propaganda. It’s right out of Lenin’s playbook.

4. "The way to crush the bourgeoisie [middle class] is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.” Joe Biden and the Democratic Party certainly understand this. They attempt to hide their Marxist-Leninist beliefs, and they never speak of them, except in unguarded moments. But as always, look at what a person does, not what he says. The American Democratic Party is a Marxist-Leninist Party, and not-so-slowly becoming a Maoist one as well.

5. “Our program necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism.” Yep, sure does, which is one reason they hate Christianity so much. This should not surprise us. "And you will be hated by all for My name's sake” (Matthew 10:22). "For everyone practicing evil hates the light” (John 3:20). “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before [it hated] you” (John 15:18). “Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you” (I John 3:13). Jesus and his apostles predicted, almost 2,000 years ago, the reaction of the world to his teaching, and they have been 100% accurate in those predictions. Well, they killed Jesus, why do we expect anything any different?

6. “One man with a gun can control 100 without one.” Joe, and every other tyrant, would certainly agree with that one.

7. “It is necessary—secretly and urgently—to prepare the terror.” I just wish Americans weren’t so naïve and ignorant of history.

8. Lenin sent this one to his enforcers around Russia: “Hang (absolutely hang, in full view of the people) no fewer than 100 known kulaks [peasants who might have owned two cows], fatcats, bloodsuckers.” In other words, anyone Lenin didn’t approve of. Countless millions were murdered by Lenin’s hordes.

9. The American media has gotten Lenin’s message: “The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses.” That should be the masthead of the New York Times now. 

10. “Surely you do not imagine that we shall be victorious without applying the cruelest revolutionary terror?” Vlad, those of us who know history know that is EXACTLY what Leftists plan and do.

In the above, I have listed just a few choice quotes from one of the leading Leftists in history. As they have elsewhere, the Left in the West will start killing people (other than just the unborn) as soon as they can get away with it. Their hatred, especially of Christianity and religious people, is deep, vicious, and real. As they did in Lenin and Stalin's USSR and other atheistic, communist countries (and still do in China), their number one target will be a religion because people can have no higher allegiance than to the state. Homosexuality and abortion HAVE to be honored because they are condemned by Christianity, and the only “freedom” the Left allows is the “freedom” to believe what they tell you to believe. And if you don't, they hate you passionately, they will say all manner of vile things about you, and, if they ever get power, they will kill you. Opposition cannot be tolerated and must be obliterated. Hundreds of millions of deaths since Lenin led communism into world power 100 years ago is testimony to the real moral code of the atheistic Left. Lenin’s comments—and they could be multiplied—show the true nature of the horrible hatred and evil that dwells in the hearts of these people. It is truly frightening. We better get prepared.

One final quote from Lenin: “We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us.”  

Read The Washington Post.
