“When Trump’s popularity goes high, our campaign goes low.”
If you grew up in the 80s, you probably watched the classic war movie, Red Dawn. And if you watched it, you probably loved it.
If you didn’t get to watch it, you need to have a serious talk with your parents.
Anyway, Red Dawn takes place in small town America and almost right away we see invading troops parachuting in, killing any who who resist, and locking everyone else in labor camps. The enemy is a Communist alliance army made of Cuban and Russian troops. Fortunately, the protagonists, a group of high school boys, manage to escape into the nearby mountains, where they live off the land and learn to become guerilla fighters.
I won’t spoil the ending, but the movie was much more than an action film at the time. Released in 1984, Red Dawn was the ultimate story for a generation of patriotic Americans under President Reagan’s second term in office. It reminded moviegoers that America really did have dangerous enemies “out there,” but that our country is something worth fighting for, even dying for.
“Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”
Over thirty years later, Red Dawn was remade into a much less successful reboot. I haven’t seen it, and my friends say I shouldn’t even waste my time. I grant that the reboot might be a worse movie, but I don’t think that’s all that has changed: the American audience has changed. When the first Red Dawn came out, patriotism was a virtue. The military and law enforcement were respected. There was more neighborliness, greater local business opportunity, more Americans were employed in productive labor, and America was respected as a great power on the global scale.
That is, I believe, the vision Donald Trump has when he says he wants to “Make America Great Again.” It sounds corny, but in a certain sense, the Trump Movement desires to “Make Red Dawn Great Again.”
It’s catchy slogan, but can we do it? Is America too far gone? Well, the answer depends on how we handle one more change that has taken place since Red Dawn hit the theaters decades ago. In the movie, our conquerors came from abroad, but in our day, the enemy is among us. As leak after leak and undercover video after undercover video is making clear, our true enemies will not parachute in: they are already out in the open on the streets of America.
O’Keefe’s first major report on Monday provided explosive evidence that the Democratic party is directly cooperating with the Hillary campaign to incite violence and chaos at all Trump or Pence events. The most notorious such protest was in Chicago in March, which was so chaotic that Trump cancelled his first and only rally on the campaign trail. Even at the time there was evidence that many of the protestors were paid by MoveOn.org and other Soros-funded progressive agencies.
With O’Keefe’s new reports, however, we now know the protest had much deeper roots. O’Keefe highlights two “agents of change” in the Hillary campaign that played crucial roles in the Chicago riots and other anti-Trump attacks: Aaron Black (not his real name) and Zulema Rodriguez.

How many anti-Trump mobs have been in Hillary’s potato-sack pocket? All of them.
On top of this, there is now hard evidence that the Hillary campaign directly paid Rodriquez two weeks prior to the Chicago “bird-dogging” riot.
An activist who bragged about disrupting multiple Donald Trump campaign events in a recent Project Veritas video was on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign payroll, a search of Federal Election Commission (FEC) records reveals.
In a Veritas video released Monday, filmmaker and provocateur James O’Keefe recounts meeting activist Zulema Rodriguez at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. In the video, Rodriguez takes credit for violent protests in Chicago that forced Trump to cancel a March rally. …
Rodriguez was paid by the Clinton campaign shortly before she disrupted the Chicago rally. The campaign paid her $1,610.34 as a “payroll” expense, and also gave her a $30 payment that is described only as “phone.”
You can verify this on the FEC.gov site for yourself.
Just as America has changed since Red Dawn debuted, so we find ourselves in a frighteningly new world of American politics. These are not the tactics on campaign uses against another.
These are tactics that an enemy government uses against a target population.
All of these actions are tactics an enemy government uses against a target population–and they are all straight from the modern Democratic playbook. Red Dawn may have been fiction, but Democrats’ systematic campaign of domestic terrorism is not. The enemy may have been “out there” during the Cold War, but now they live among us in our era of the Shadow War.
