News from The Virginia Council

Dear Members,
Thank you to the overflowing group of great Virginians and guests who joined us this past week for our monthly meeting focused on the destruction of art and monuments in and around Richmond. Our Vice Chair, Dr. Ann McLean, revealed the ugly reality of what happened four years ago this week… and it was NOT symbolic of a healthy republic. For some of you, the visual realization of what has already been lost to the angry mob and the crass leftists was shocking. As usual the media largely praised the illegal destruction and rioting as a noble “racial reckoning” instead of as lawlessness and the abysmal loss of priceless art and historic landmarks. What was more disturbing in Dr. McLean's presentation was the realization that we are being primed and manipulated for a Marxist takeover on our own shores. Like diagnosing a disease that has killed people around the world but is new to its latest domestic victims- the class struggle plan to dominate and crush free societies is only clear once you've been educated in their game plan. Modern patriots must boldly stand up to stop this cultural gangrene wherever it appears. We are doing that by educating our neighbors and by dragging these miscreants into court to account for what they've done and stop them from continuing. I hope in the coming months you'll join us at our events and by contributing to our legal fund in our civilized effort to fight back against these corrupting forces that are rising in our midst.

Block 12th

Dr. Ann McLean explained to a standing room crowd the effect that the Cultural Revolution has had in Virginia on places and objects of artistic and historical importance. The audience learned what you probably suspect: that priceless fine art on Virginia's Historic Register is not immune to perversion and destruction. The audience saw what happens when iconoclasts subordinate art to non-artistic agendas.
Dr. McLean focused on the 4-stage plan of internal subversion revealed in 1970 by KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov and how this plan has been incrementally realized in Richmond, Virginia.  Dr. McLean engaged the lunch crowd and revealed the current condition of public artworks and how other symbols and ceremonies are being “re-imagined”. Rest assured, the denigration and destruction of our history from the left goes far beyond monuments and statues to the very essence of our constitutional republic.
