In 1917 in Russia, the Tsar abdicated. A provisional government was formed. The Bolsheviks were not yet in power.
As they prepared to seize power the Bolsheviks knew they had to gain control of the military and prevent it from working against them.
They began subversion of the army from within.
Troops sympathetic to their cause began to be encouraged to wear red ribbons on their uniforms to show where they stood ideologically.
Today’s Marxists in this radical regime understand the same principles.
They are hard at work transforming and neutering the American military and bending it to their will.
Army Secretary Christine Wormuth, a former Clinton intern, gave a wide-ranging interview recently in which she spoke expansively of the plans of the Biden administration to overhaul our military and alter its composition.
Depending too much on military families could create a “warrior caste,” Wormuth said. She wants to pull people into uniform who have no connection to military service.

The world’s greatest meritocracy is under assault by those who would reshape our armed services into expressly revolutionary entities intent on the remaking of our society and the destruction of the republic. None of this is by accident. None of this is unintentional. The Bolsheviks knew they had to target the military. So do Joe and his comrades.”—Sam Faddis
