Signs point to Maoists rampaging in Kenosha, Minneapolis, Chicago….

Maoists in Kenosha, after the Jacob Blake incident

The other day I wrote a piece in which I opined about the Chinese role in what is going on today, from the intentional diffusion of the Wuhan Devil into the wider world to the violence erupting in our city streets. HERE

At the Epoch Times there is a piece by Trevor London about how Maoists are inciting the violence in our streets. My emphases.

Maoists Burn Kenosha

The rioters who attacked police officers with Molotov cocktails and fireworks and torched numerous buildings inKenosha, Wisconsin, earlier this week included members of the same pro-China communist group that “sparked” the May riots in Minneapolis after the police-involved killing of George Floyd.

Maoist activists from the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) can take most, if not all, of the credit for inciting the recent rioting in Kenosha. The town of 100,000 people has been torn apart, businesses and cars have been razed, multiple people have been arrested, and two people have died—yet no one seems to want to call out the real culprits.

FRSO is based in the Midwest. It has maintained a strong presence in Chicago and Minneapolis for decades. The subversive organization has expanded in recent years into Milwaukee and the smaller university towns of Oshkosh and Kenosha, where new cadre are recruited through campus branches of FRSO’s youth wing: New Students for a Democratic Society.

On Feb. 20, 2017, [sic] the day President Trump was inaugurated, FRSO political secretary Steff Yorekdeclaredto a crowd of Washington, D.C. protesters: “We need to stay in the streets the entire four years opposing Trump and making the country ungovernable.”

In November 2019, FRSO convened a conference in Chicago to form a new nationwide front organization: the National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression (NAARPR).

More accurately, it was a re-founding of an old Communist Party USA front of the 1970s of the same name. The original NAARPR was set up to free iconic communist Angela Davis, who was then under arrest for alleged complicity in the murder of a California judge. Davis was eventually acquitted of the murder charge in 1972, and she even came to Chicago toconfer her blessingon the new organization.


When protesters gathered in downtown Kenosha after the Aug. 23 police-involved shooting of Jacob Blake, three banners were clearly visible at the head of the several-hundred-strong crowd:

The bright red FRSO banner, the green banner of the Milwaukee Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, and the smaller black flag of New Students for a Democratic Society—probably the local University of Wisconsin—Parkside branch.

Just before the march, a young woman led the crowd in a chant of “long live the revolution” directly in front of the signature FRSO banner. FRSO Facebook pages (both Wisconsin and national) contain extensive coverage of the protests and riots—as does the FRSO-affiliated website FightBack! News.



The broader picture is starting to come into focus.

Just the other day, I was given a copy of Mao’s “Little Red Book” which had been found in the effects of a deceased priest.  As I paged through the nasty little thing, I found that he had penned indications in the murderer’s comments on forming the youth according to the mind and goals of the revolution.

    In addition to the activists mentioned, China is getting help from US government officials. The attached link includes a video of Mike Pompeo addressing the National Governors Association meeting this past February. It’s well worth the 20 minutes to watch him let the audience know that the US intelligence community is aware of who may be flirting with Chinese influence. This warning was echoed by DNI John Ratcliffe in an interview with Maria Bartiromo on her Sunday Morning Futures show yesterday.

    When you scroll past the Pompeo video link you’ll see the social scores the CCP has assigned US governors in terms of their “friendliness” towards China. What type of China initiatives is your governor invested in? From my experience it takes digging but the information is generally out there via press releases. Are governors who are foot-dragging on re-opening their states also under Chinese influence?

    Treason is an attempt to bring down the government if I’m not mistaken. Why aren’t all the social media accounts of these people involved shut down? They do that to good guys/conservatives! Good to expose this, Father! Most people are oblivious to the evil rampant in our times.

    Very interesting link, BNDNNC! I am surprised at nothing these days. CTH is a fantastic website! You’re correct about digging for info. There are websites, videos, etc. from people who know what they are talking about. In “the old days” we heard about “front” organizations, “dupes”, “useful idiots”, etc. They are stronger than ever with what has happened in schools and every other segment of society, even the Church!!

  3. PostCatholic says:

    They both look very dangerous and it’s clear they’re inciting violence, sure enough.

    When you look upon them as the Democrat Party’s constituents, it’s not so bad. The brilliant speakers at the RNC convention highlighted the fact that people see rioters and the Dem governors enabling them as the face of the Dem party, while RNC and their brilliant speakers picked up 9+ points for Trump’s black vote in same time. This is progress. Dem rage just cannot see it yet.

    I grew up in Berkeley during the infamous People’s Park riots, and vividly remember Governor Ronald Reagan planting National Guard on every corner one day. It stopped the movement cold.
    However, George Soros was probably not funding back then.

    Where is Joseph McCarthy when we need him? Resurrect the Unamerican Activities Committee. Could not be run by the House for obvious reasons. Problem is there are so many commies in all levels of government and education (and probably the churches) we would practically have to fire everyone and start from scratch.

  7. Semper Gumby says:

    Good points JonPatrick, adriennep et al.

    From the State Dept. website:

    On August 13, 2020, the Department of State designated the Confucius Institute U.S. Center (CIUS), which serves as the Washington D.C.-based de facto headquarters of the Confucius Institute network, as a foreign mission of the People’s Republic of China.

    Maoists. Active here in the United States.

    I’ve always “known” in my bones, as it were, that Maoists are here and active, but without knowing because of lack of hard evidence. Now we have it.

    It’s horrifying, but good to have.

    I’ve also always “known” in my bones that many – by no means all – of the Democratic party leadership, as well as one of their bases – the hard Left; and their social influencers are at heart Marxists and Maoists who have decided long ago to sneak Communism into the U.S. by little bits and pieces. And they’ve been doing just that for decades.

    But one doesn’t want to voice that, because it’s only a thing surmised, a thing intuited. There’s been no hard evidence, really. Until now.

    Thank you, Father Z., for posting this.

    It’s heart-breaking, but at least it gets things out into the open.

    Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, Patroness of the United States, pray for us.

    Today, from:

    “But an opinion piece published by the Global Times says there are “few signs that Australia intends to stop provoking China”.

    ““Further decoupling with China will not send China back to poverty but will only make former Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew’s famous statement more likely to come true: That if Australia doesn’t open up its economy and reduce unemployment, it risks becoming the ‘poor white trash of Asia’,” researcher Yu Lei writes.”

    Global Times is an English-language “newspaper” published in Beijing by the Chinese Communist Party’s “People’s Daily.” Mao and the ChiComs always had a racist element in their ideology.

  10. Semper Gumby says:

    “All three of BLM’s co-founders have been employed by, or affiliated with, some of FRSO’s aforementioned front groups at various times. Specifically:

    Alicia Garza has served as a special projects director for the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA); executive director of People Organized to Win Employment Rights (POWER); a board member of School of Unity and Liberation (SOUL); and board chair of the Right to the City Alliance (RTTC).
    Patrisse Cullors, who was trained by former Weather Underground leader Eric Mann, founded Dignity and Power Now (DPN) and has served as its director.
    Opal Tometi is affiliated with the Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI).”

    [Outstanding work, making these connections. Useful.]

  11. Semper Gumby says:

    “FRSO is a hereditary descendant of the New Communist Movement, which was inspired by Mao and the many communist revolutions throughout the world in the 1960s and 1970s. FRSO split into two separate groups in 1999, FRSO/Fight Back and FRSO/OSCL (Freedom Road Socialist Organization/Organizacion Socialista del Camino para la Libertad).”

  12. Semper Gumby says:

    “On the occasion of the inauguration to a second term as President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) sends its warmest congratulations and solidarity to Nicolás Maduro and the people’s movement of Venezuela.”

  13. tho says:

    This coming election will be the most consequential in our history. President Trump is the only thing standing between us and complete anarchy. Biden is nothing but a tool for those who want us to become China lite. The survival of America as we have known it, is at stake. Hollywood, the media, and the deep state is hell bent on making us pawns in their quest for power.
    Vote as if your life depended on it, because it does.

    “Forming An Antifa Group: A Manual”

    “However, in general we have found that, unless there is an existing relationship with a more mainstream organization, they will almost always reject collaboration if you approach them as an antifa group. It’s best to build relationships prior to any request for working together, or if this can’t be done, to approach them under a different name (“Las Cruces United Against Racism”).”

    “On the national level, your group can affiliate with the Torch Network.”

    “Anarchist Action At No War Protest”

    “We also made the recent article by Hawzhin Azeez ‘Killing Sulaimani- How The Butcher of the People Became an Anti-Imperialist Hero’ into a zine, specifically to give to the tankies who were representing FRSO and the PSL.

    As for the protest itself, we crossed the streets with our giant “No War” banner and started a couple anarchist chants, such as “No Borders, No Nations, End the Occupations” (which was successful briefly, until one of the members of FRSO asked the person with the megaphone to stop)

    Don’t focus so much on 2020 that you forget 2024 will be here practically tomorrow; Beijing’s playing the looooooooong game, but even the right isn’t thinking past the closest election…

  17. Semper Gumby says:

    JesusFreak84: That the Communist regime in Beijing always plays a long game is debatable (Wuhan Virus and WHO, Uighur concentration camps, etc.). “2024 will be here practically tomorrow” and “the right isn’t thinking past the closest election” seem rather vague. Cheers.
