"Communism expert and author Trevor Loudon called the tearing down of statues a “Maoist tactic of erasing the form of culture.” “Maoism is about building a new man, a new society,” Loudon told The Epoch Times. “You have to destroy all remnants of the old society. You have to destroy memorials and the former culture so you can build a new society.”
According to Loudon, Marxist organizations such as Liberation Road and the Workers World Party have both been involved in the recent escalations.
“They are following the line of the Chinese Cultural Revolution,” said Loudon, who is also a contributor to The Epoch Times. “The Cultural Revolution wiped out the previous Chinese culture; they toppled statues and desecrated monuments.”
The endgame, Loudon says, is to usher in an American revolution that involves the destroying of the U.S. Constitution and the destruction of U.S. history.
“All of this is linked; all of this is revolutionary activity to destroy the old culture … and build a new socialist society in its wake.”
