“This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.” A “progressive” member of the U.S. House of Representatives

Dear AFA Supporter and Christian Activist,

In the midst of our national crisis, I’m sorry to write with more bad news, so I’ll just say this as plainly as I can:

Powerful influence makers in every social institution of our society are hoping to use the coronavirus pandemic to further their secular, socialist vision for America.

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) told lawmakers on a call, “This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.”

In California, during a briefing with reporters on April 1, Gov. Gavin Newsom was asked if he saw the potential “for a new progressive era and opportunity for additional progressive steps” as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The governor answered affirmatively. “There is opportunity for reimagining a progressive era as it pertains to capitalism,” Newsom said. “So yes, absolutely, we see this as an opportunity to reshape the way we do business and how we govern.”

These left-wingers clearly want to “reshape” America into a “progressive” socialist state, and use the COVID-19 pandemic as a means to that end.

I know you hate to hear more distressing news, but those of us who still believe in our founders’ vision for America must speak out. We must object, confront, debate, defend, and stand strong for the future of our nation, our families, and our Constitution. 

What do I mean by a progressive socialist state? 

In the progressives’ vision, a future America would reject our founding principles and create a society rooted in humanism – a philosophy that rejects God and puts man at the authoritative center of all things.

In the new America, the government would wield unchallenged, unlimited authority.

Imagine the U.S. looking more like Cuba, Venezuela, China, the former Soviet Union, or something out of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World? Well, you’re not far off.

Watch. I predict that leading into the fall elections, progressives will subtly cite the pandemic as evidence that America needs more government, more regulation, and more control over our lives. And, of course, along with all that comes more taxes, more centralized power, and less personal freedom.

Regrettably, this progressive vision for America has already been embraced by many in the media, government, entertainment industry, public schools, and even in some churches. 

To dig deeper and understand the serious threat that the progressive movement poses to our democracy, AFA created a must-have resource.

Written by AFA executive vice president Ed Vitagliano, The Progressive Threat To the American Republic, a 40-page booklet and companion DVD presentation, pulls back the curtain on the forces that have brought Americans to the brink of losing our freedoms.
