The History And Legacy Of Socialism In America

Sanders vs. Solzhenitsyn

Bill Federer, in his Labor Day email said, “In 1979, Bernie Sanders produced a documentary praising Eugene Debs. He hung a portrait of Debs in the City Hall of Burlington, Vermont, and dedicated a plaque to him in his Congressional office.”

Debs, a high school dropout, Marxist Communist and anarchist who organized labor riots in the 1890’s, founded the Socialist Party in America in 1901.

Federer writes, “In 1918, Debs was charged with ten counts of sedition and sentenced to ten years in prison. President Woodrow Wilson refused to pardon him.”

When President, Warren G. Harding, also refused to pardon Debs, the White House released a statement saying:

“There is no question of his guilt … He is … a dangerous man calculated to mislead the unthinking and affording excuse for those with criminal intent.”

Alexander Solzhenitsyn, author of The Gulag Archipelago, who spent 11 years in Union of Soviet Socialist Republics labor camps, as quoted by Federer, stated, June 30, 1975:

“I … call upon America to be more careful with its trust … Prevent those … who are attempting to establish even finer … legal shades of equality — because of their distorted outlook … short-sightedness and … self-interest –from falsely using the struggle for peace and for social justice to lead you down a false road … They are trying to weaken you; they are trying to disarm your strong and magnificent country in the face of this fearful threat …

I call upon you: ordinary working men of America … do not let yourselves become weak.”


America’s voters – including millennials – must not be deceived. The phrase “social justice” or “equality” as used today by the left in America, including the deluded democrat candidates for President — specifically Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are rooted in Marxist political philosophy. If socialism is embraced by the voters in the 2020 elections, particularly in the choice of candidates to the House of Representatives, and Senate, it will lead to the destruction of America’s freedoms and result in totalitarian rule as it has in Communist Russia, North Korea, Cuba, and now. . . Venezuela.

Please forward this to every millennial you know. Their numbers now exceed the baby boomer generation and the majority vote for democrats.
