Russia, Russia, Russia! I'm beginning to wonder if Jan Brady has become the dark lord of all media. Since the election, a manufactured lie has overtaken the news cycle. Democrats and their propaganda masters want us to believe the Trump administration is infested with Russian operatives. They can’t prove anything, but they persist in this narrative. To be quite honest, I’ve had enough and have tuned out. I can’t even watch Fox News because of this crap.
I recently subscribed to Netflix and a whole new world has opened up to me. I am a documentary fool and this venue is paradise. A couple of nights ago, I watched Liberating a Continent: John Paul II and the Fall of Communism. I swear every documentary I watch on totalitarian regimes the following tactics are employed:
Suppress the Christian faith
Take over schools and indoctrinate children
Attack the family unit
Instill a politically correct environment
Criminalize political foes
Does that sound familiar? It should because Progressives are employing these tactics right here in the United States.
There are plenty of remarkable observations in this documentary, but the one that stood out for me was the Solidarity movement in Poland. The narrator stated the Soviet Union boasted they had created a workers’ paradise. However, the Poles didn’t feel that way; they wanted freedom and self-government.
The narrator commented American socialists couldn’t understand the Solidarity movement. Maybe they would understand it better had they lived under a totalitarian regime.
I will say Pope John Paul II was an amazing man. He understood the insidious nature of socialism/communism. Maybe someone will send a copy of this documentary to the current Vicar of Christ.
