The president of the Clemson University chapter of the far-left Students for a Democratic Society group recently posed for a social media photo waving an Antifa flag in front of the Victims of Communism Memorial. Other posts show multiple middle fingers being raised toward the monument, presenting a revealing look at the sentiments that SDS members continue to hold.
Antifa-supporting students from Clemson University recently expressed their political sentiments by openly mocking the Victims of Communism Memorial on social media.
“Victims of Communism Memorial (2017),” and “#NewProfilePic,” Clemson Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) President Dawn Lifsey captioned a photo, via Facebook and Twitter respectively, waving an Antifa flag in front of the memorial.
Responding to the photo on both platforms, Lifsey wrote, “This is the victims of communism memorial btw lmao,” explaining that the Antifa flag was borrowed, “from folks who were at the Juggalo March for this hilarious purpose.”
Additionally, Lifsey posted a photo of several unknown individuals giving the middle finger to the memorial, which is dedicated to “the more than 100 million victims of communism around the world and to the freedom of those still living under totalitarian regimes.”

President Trump has announced he is repealing Barack Obama’s unilateral and unconstitutional amnesty for tens of thousands of illegal immigrants. And several leading Democrats are furious.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., has declared current White House chief of staff and former Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly “a disgrace to the uniform he used to wear.”
Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., accused Trump of being willing to “coddle the neo-Nazis and the KKK” and bemoaned a “cruel decision.”
And protests have exploded nationwide, including at the Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C., where protesters chanted slogans in Spanish.
Why are Democrats so angry about attempts to enforce immigration law? And why are those who want open borders unwilling to require immigrants to speak English, even as they claim everyone in the world should have the privilege of becoming an American citizen?
A blockbuster new documentary reveals the disturbing answers to these questions.
Communism’s death toll overshadows other contemporary human cruelty.
Writing in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, A. Barton Hinkle remembers “A century of ghastly communist sadism,” which started when a relatively small number of Bolshevik anarchists led by Vladimir Lenin managed to overthrow the Russian government of Alexander Kerensky in November 1917. As Hinkle writes, “while the Soviet Union is no more and communism has been discredited in most eyes for many years, it is hard even now to grasp the sheer scale of agony imposed by the brutal ideology of collectivism.”
The Black Book of Communism, which came out in 1997, estimated that some 95 million people were either killed or made to starve to death in the communist attempt to create an egalitarian paradise on earth. Current research puts the number of victims of communism anywhere between 43 million and 162 million. As such, the original 100 million figure remains a remarkably accurate midway point. It is, also, a figure so large that people may have difficulty comprehending it without additional context. Leaving the (rightly) well-known example of the Holocaust aside, let us look at some other bywords for human cruelty.
For example, the Russian Empire was always seen as backward and tyrannical. As Orlando Figes noted in A People’s Tragedy: The Russian Revolution: 1891-1924, “from the perspective of the individual, it could be said that the single greatest difference between Russia and the West… was that in Western Europe citizens were generally free to do as they pleased so long as their activities had not been specifically prohibited by the state, while the people of Russia were not free to do anything unless the state had given them specific permission to do it. No subject of the Tsar, regardless of his rank or class, could sleep securely in his bed in the knowledge that his house would not be subject to a search, or he himself to arrest.”

Cites ominous results of Obama’s ‘5 days away from fundamentally transforming America’
“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America,” declared Barack Obama during a campaign stop on Oct. 30, 2008, five days before the election that would make him the most powerful man in the world.
The concept of “fundamental transformation” has been discussed vigorously since then, especially in light of the many sweeping changes Obama brought to the country over his eight years in office.
Historian Charles Sasser sees Obama’s “fundamental transformation” in the context of an older and more sinister plan articulated by a pair of Marxist activists nearly 50 years ago.
“What we’re seeing now is this fundamental transformation, and it goes all the way back to [Herbert] Marcuse,” Sasser said during a recent appearance on the “Prophecy Hour” radio program. “In the 1960s when he [Marcuse] was talking about the ‘long march through the institutions,’ this is what Obama was talking about – the fundamental transformation of America.”
The “long march through the institutions” was coined by student activist Rudi Dutschke in the late 1960s to describe his strategy for bringing about the conditions for a Marxist revolution in the United States.

Author believes nation facing ‘last chance’ to remain free.
“Anti-fascism” is all the rage (literally) in America today. Some media outlets excused the violent actions of the “Antifa,” or “anti-fascists” in Charlottesville, Virginia, because they opposed white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
But what power do the white supremacists have to bring “fascism” to America when they are a small, fringe, nearly universally reviled group of people? That is what puzzles Charles Sasser, a longtime historian, journalist, photographer and author.
“These people have very little financial support from anybody,” Sasser said in an interview this week on “Stand for Truth Radio” with Susan Knowles. “They’re such small numbers. They may be reprehensible, but they don’t really pose a threat to our society.
“The left is the one that’s been doing all the rioting, tearing up college campuses, etcetera. Those people are well supported. I mean, they’re financed. But these people – KKK, white supremacists – they’re never going to be a threat to this country.”
In a 1946 essay in the London Tribune entitled “In Front of Your Nose,” George Orwell noted that “we are all capable of believing things which we know to be untrue, and then, when we are finally proved wrong, impudently twisting the facts so as to show that we were right. Intellectually, it is possible to carry on this process for an indefinite time: the only check on it is that sooner or later a false belief bumps up against solid reality, usually on a battlefield.”
The intellectual battlefields today are on college campuses, where students’ deep convictions about race, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation and their social justice antipathy toward capitalism, imperialism, racism, white privilege, misogyny and “cissexist heteropatriarchy” have bumped up against the reality of contradictory facts and opposing views, leading to campus chaos and even violence. Students at the University of California, Berkeley, and outside agitators, for example, rioted at the mere mention that conservative firebrands Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter had been invited to speak (in the end, they never did). Middlebury College students physically attacked libertarian author Charles Murray and his liberal host, professor Allison Stanger, pulling her hair, twisting her neck and sending her to the ER.
I watch Hollywood awards ceremonies where a supposed artist screams out for punching people in the face for political disagreements, and the entire horde of Botoxed brain zombies leaps to their feet in an ungodly and unholy howl of rampant bloodlust approval.
“We can call it Cultural Marxism, but at the end of the day, we experience it on a day to day basis, by that I mean a minute by minute, second by second basis. It’s political correctness and it’s multiculturalism.” – Andrew Breitbart
