A new book is out about the Culture War and the manipulation of the meaning of words, speech, and language by the left to undermine and subvert the nation’s culture and in the process achieve political objectives. “Speechless: Controlling Words, Controlling Minds” by Michael Knowles

My comment: What we are experiencing has a name from its communist, linguist, founder Antonio Gramsci— “Gramscism”. What has happened with the redefining of the “natural born Citizen” term in the U.S. Constitution is one example of what the linguist and communist Antonio Gramsci suggested in his “Prison Notebooks” writings as the way to undermine the western democracies and their constitutions, i.e., over time redefine the meaning of words and language to help achieve one’s political objective, enabled by long-term infiltration by far-left permanent influencers of the cultural institutions of a nation (and eventual hegemony over them) such as the academia, entertainment industry, religious leaders, main-stream major media, and other major institutions of the targeted western democracy.
We have been dealing with the far-left slow-roll strategy of Antonio Gramsci to bring down the western democracies including the USA for a long time. Key institutions have been infiltrated and controlled by the far-left organic intellectuals and permanent persuaders, as Gramsci called them, under the Marxist plan which Gramscian gradualists call “The Long March Through the Institutions.”
They’ve been at it for generations for the last 100 years and are at the apex of their hegemony in the institutions and thus control virtually all of our national institutions. If Trump had not won the election they would have come forward and out of the woodwork and totally taken over under Clinton and moved the nation at a quicker pace to a Socialist one, which status to the Communists is a temporary state, and just one more step towards Communism, which end state they believe is a Utopian form of government. They must be stopped now. We need to learn more about the enemy within and their tactics, projects, and strategy. Know thy enemy! Read what Jeff Carlson summarized. I’ve read lengthy works about Gramsci and what Jeff Carlson summarized about Gramsci is excellent. See: https://cdrkerchner.wordpress.com/2020/10/13/gramsci-alinsky-the-left-by-jeff-carlson/
The article excerpted and linked to above by Jeff Carlson is spot-on about Gramsci and a good summary of Gramsci’s long-term political agenda to bring socialism and communism to the western democratic nations. Modern “Progressives” believe in and use his tactics and strategy all the time. And they know what they are “progressing” towards … Socialism … and then in the very long-term Communism.
Learn what Jeff Carlson is sharing in his article and spread it to your friends and associates and anyone and everyone who needs to learn that what we see is happening in our country, and the co-opting and destruction of our institutions and changing the meaning of words in our language, is not an accident. Gramsci was educated as a linguist. He advocated the manipulation of language to further political goals. What we are experiencing is the result of the Gramscian long-term plan all along. We are just the generation at the end point of his long-march strategy in which we see it coming to full fruition and a head.
What we are feeling and seeing now, that we know something is wrong in our country, we can all now understand that it has has a name “Gramscism”. It’s “progress” must be stopped before it is too late. Control of the the House and Senate must be taken away in 2022 from the Democratic Socialist Party lead by Pelosi and her ilk. President Donald Trump must be re-elected in 2024. They tried to cripple him in his first term at every step. Now he knows what he’s up against. He will be the only one with enough power, authority, and courage to take them on if he gets a second term. Give him the opportunity to save our constitutional republic. Take back the House and Senate in 2022. Re-elect Donald Trump 2024.
“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” ~ Norman Thomas ~ Source: http://libertytree.ca/quotes/Norman.Thomas.Quote.FFB1
