Jim DeMint and Rachel Bovard joined Senior Editor Christopher Bedford to discuss socialism’s influence in America and how conservatives can combat its spread. Bovard is the founder of the Conservative Partnership Institute, of which former Sen. DeMint is the chairman, and a senior member of the Internet Accountability Project. DeMint is also a member of the coronavirus task force and the author of “Saving America From Socialism.“
DeMint said he observed the first major move toward socialism when former President Obama took office in 2008, but noted democrats have now fully embraced this ideology. Now, Bovard added, since the education system has fully perpetuated the Marxist idea that there are no self-evident truths, the modern consensus devolved into accepting the triumph of the will. This is clearly reflected in the “Black Lives Matter” movement and the destruction of historical monuments.
