Socialism is communism. Communism is slavery. This Marxist evil must not be allowed to grow any further roots in America.

With that in mind we started the STAND Against Communism Coalition, hosting weekly conference calls to plan how to vanquish America’s greatest internal enemy. It was our plan to hold rallies in state capitols and local communities on May 1st.

Then the Communist Chinese Wuhan Virus entered the picture. 

After holding out as long as we could, it became clear that in-person rallies would be virtually impossible. Dire predictions of deaths, now revealed to be grossly exaggerated, spread fear and hysteria.

This STAND Against Communism movement is even more urgent than when we began a year ago. The Communist Chinese Wuhan Virus has unleashed a tsunami of government overreach by so called progressives who are really communists.

We have witnessed churches closed. One county in California declared it a crime to go to church. In some jurisdictions, citizens need “papers” to prove they are going to and from work. Businesses have been closed that will never recover. There has been a sudden and dramatic shift from the private economy to government dependence.

Gavin Newsome declared the virus to be an opportunity for a new progressive era. Jim Clyburn said it is an opportunity to implement “restrictions” in keeping with their socialist vision. As Bernie Sanders was dropping out of the Presidential race, he was also accelerating his “movement” to run socialists for office all over the country. There are nearly 250 “Berniecrat” socialist candidates seeking to fulfill the Marxist Revolution he envisions for America.

I am convinced that the shutdowns, lockdowns and stay-at-home orders while perhaps well intentioned by medical professionals, have become a political sledge hammer to destroy President Trump and the conservative movement. We planned to hold rallies across the country, but it became obvious by mid-April that it was not going to happen. STAND began instead to work on a Livestream event to be held the same day.

May 1st is “International Workers Day,” the unofficial Communist holiday. We want to destroy that and replace it with a patriotic celebration of American freedom and a denunciation of Marxism.

On May 1, 12:00 PM ET STAND Against Communism will broadcast an event featuring Trevor Loudon, Jerome Corsi, Clare Lopez, Rev. Rafael Cruz, and former congressman and Lt. Col. (Ret.) Allen West. 

Sign your organization up to partner with us at no cost, and you can live-stream the event from your own website. It is time to unite and rally Americans against the insidious evil of Marxism, communism and socialism.

May God bless you and your family, and may He continue to bless the United States of America to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.
