Do you recall the various Marxist movements in Central and South America? Such as in El Salvador in 1981 or in Chiapas, Mexico in the 1990s? There have been many such movements. But most of them, thank God, failed and disappeared from history. A few succeeded. Chile actually turned communist in 1973 under Allende, and so did Nicaragua in 1979, and Argentina nearly did so in 1975/1976. Communism is popular in the poorer Latin American countries, which means that the Western world must be vigilant about communism spreading in those areas. (If Mexico ever turns communist, America will be in deep shit and so will Central America).

Do you know why communism has (so far) been defeated in Central and South America? Here’s why: The School of the Americas (SOA), located at Fort Benning, Georgia. Established in 1946, it closed in 2000 due to leftist political pressure in Congress.

For decades, SOA taught many thousands of Central and South American military personnel about the dangers of communism and how to successfully fight it. The school has ended, but various leftists claim that it still exists just as before, but under a new name, which is false. Again, SOA closed in 2000 because leftists don’t like people who fight communism in Latin America. Such fighting of communism there “goes against democracy and human rights.” Confused? Welcome to the club. So am I. (I kid. In the tiny minds of liberals, “Marxism” and “democracy” are virtually interchangeable because, to them, having the word “people’s” in any title/name/slogan means it’s democratic, e.g., “The People’s Republic of China,” or “The People’s Revolutionary Movement” or “The People’s Army To Wipe Out Logic and Common Sense.” See? That means “the people” are all in agreement; they all want it! “The people” have spoken! Democracy prevails! Yay!).

There has been at least one book written about SOA: [Here].

How ironic that, while we were lecturing Central and South American military men about communism, we ignored the rise of Marxism in places like Cuba, and, here in the USA as well (e.g., the Weathermen/Weather Underground, the Black Panthers, the SLA).

There were and still are Marxist groups in America, some of which are front-groups with suspect names like, “People for Democratic Socialism Voting Democratically to Further Democracy.” Marxists love the word “democracy” and they use it daily [1]. Antifa is a Marxist group. Ditto Black Lives Matter [2].

[1] “People’s democracy was a theoretical concept within Marxism–Leninism and a form of government which developed after World War II and that allowed in theory for a multi-class, multi-party democracy on the pathway to socialism.” — Wikipedia, Feb. 2021.

[2] “Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are “trained Marxists” – making clear their movement’s ideological foundation, according to a report.” — from an article titled “Black Lives Matter co-founder describes herself as ‘trained Marxist’” by Yaron Steinbuch, in the New York Post, June 25, 2020.
