The Washington Post has written about “a grass-roots backlash against secularism, homosexuality, and changes introduced” during the time in power of a “Marxist-inspired” political party. But the story was not about the United States. It was about Brazil. The backlash to Marxism has not yet arrived in the United States, and it certainly won’t happen with Donald J. Trump’s candidacy. Trump has just demonstrated that he is scared of debating socialist Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
The Post story, “In Brazil’s political crisis, a powerful new force: Evangelical Christians,” is an amazing account from a liberal perspective of how Christian conservatives in Brazil are taking back their country. One leading critic of the ruling Workers Party in Brazil said, “We saw that communism was in their DNA.” At Accuracy In Media, we saw this coming more than a year ago in our story “Anti-Marxist Counter-Revolution in Brazil.” The obvious question is, Can it happen here? The answer is, Not with Trump.
Andrew Chesnut, a Latin America expert and professor of religious studies at Virginia Commonwealth University, is quoted as saying, “They think the Workers’ Party put Brazil on a path to moral ruin. It legalized gay marriage. It has given Brazil one of Latin America’s highest per-capita abortion rates, even though the procedure remains illegal. There’s pornography all over the place.”
Some of these complaints could be made about the United States under Democratic Party rule. In fact, Obama’s Democrats seem to want to go even further and more quickly in a decadent direction than the Marxists in Brazil’s Workers Party.
