Retired Army LTG Michael Flynn is a lightening rod for attack and criticism. Since resigning from the Trump team and undergoing an underhanded persecution by the Department of Justice, Flynn has emerged as public enemy #1 for those who see the dreaded Christian Nationalist under every rock. I watched the full PBS documentary below and found it fascinating.
This from the promo for the documentary:
How did Michael Flynn go from being an elite soldier overseas to waging a “spiritual war” in America? In collaboration with the Associated Press, FRONTLINE examines how the retired three-star general has emerged as a leader in a far-right movement that puts its brand of Christianity at the center of American civic life and institutions and is attracting election deniers, conspiracists and extremists from around the country.
Bruce Deitrick Price at American Spectator describes “Why Are Communists Determined to Destroy the US”? Key takeaway — if sexual morals could be compromised and undermined when Christians were still children, then Christianity itself could be destroyed.
During World War 1, the deputy people’s commissar for culture and education was an extreme Marxist named György Lukács, then considered the most brilliant communist since Marx himself. He advocated promiscuity, denounced the family, and encouraged children to mock their parents and religion. The question Lukács posed was, “Who will save us from Western civilization?”
Why is Marxist theory incorrect? Two leading Marxist intellectuals, Antonio Gramsci in Italy and Lukács in Hungary, independently came up with the same answer. They said that Western culture and the Christian religion had so blinded the working class to its true, Marxist class interests, that a communist revolution was impossible in the West until both could be destroyed. That objective, established as cultural Marxism’s goal at the beginning, has never changed.
In 1918, Lukács continued refining what he called “cultural terrorism.” One component was to create sexual education courses in schools that would work to distort traditional sexual morality. “He came to the conclusion that if sexual morals could be compromised and undermined when Christians were still children, then Christianity itself could be destroyed.”
