Father, help us to learn from history and avoid repeating the same mistakes. Wake us up from our slumber to stand our ground and maintain the freedom You have given us.

The communist political movement that devastated China decades ago is unfolding in America, warned Xi Van Fleet, a parent-turned-activist who made national headlines after speaking out against critical race theory (CRT) at a school board meeting.

“When the Cultural Revolution started, I was a first grader,” the Virginia mother told EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders.”…

Emboldened by Mao’s slogan “To Rebel is Justified,” the Red Guards did not hesitate to instigate violence and destruction on everyone and everything they considered “counter-revolutionary.”

“With Mao’s approval, no one could stop them,” said Van Fleet…

Another key feature of the Red Guards movement was to attack the “Four Olds,” namely “old ideas, old culture, old customs, and old habits.”…

While the madness and lawlessness of Mao’s Cultural Revolution may sound extreme to Americans, Van Fleet warns that America is following a similar path.

“One of the things that I noticed is people are afraid,” she said. “There is the right way to talk. There are the right ideas, and those who don’t share it feel like, if they tell their own opinion, they might run the risk of being considered racist—a word like China’s ‘counter-revolution.’”

The term “racism,” much like the vaguely defined “counter-revolution,” no longer means anything but serves as a political weapon, according to Van Fleet…

In Mao’s China, citizens were classified into the favored “Five Red Categories” and the undesirable “Five Black Categories” based on their political identities. Descendants of members of the latter group…were routinely humiliated and forced to go to “struggle sessions” where they were made to confess their privileged status…

“Does that remind us of CRT?” she said. “[According to CRT] if you are born white, you are an oppressor; if you’re born black, you’re oppressed…”

“That’s the most effective way to divide people, and that’s from the Marxist playbook to divide,” she continued, pointing out that CRT is Marxist class struggle rhetoric repackaged to focus on race so that it works better in American society. “…Mao used that, the [American] left is using it now.”…
