We’ve seen it repeatedly since George Floyd’s drug overdose: Chanting mobs of mostly young, white people surround diners at restaurants or drivers in cars and force them to repeat the “black lives matter” mantra. While some of those happily chant along, it’s evident that many are doing so because they are terrified of the screaming, violent, obscene mob surrounding them. For many of us, it’s like watching an American reprise of China’s Red Guard and its frightening struggle sessions. Paul Joseph Watson agrees. He’s has put together a video that shows how precisely today’s mob replicates China’s Red Guard.
I don’t often have the patience to sit through a 15-minute video because I usually get the point in the first few minutes. However, I watched every minute of Watson’s comparison between the ritual public shaming, all backed by actual or threatened violence, that we’re witnessing now and what happened in China from the mid-1960s through the end of the 1970s. Watson relies on archival footage, interviews, and movie reenactments to show what it was like to live in China when the Red Guard – made up of students who were true believers and others who joined the mob to take the target off their own backs – became ascendant.
Perhaps the most disturbing part of the video was how Watson compares the government’s role in America and China. In the 1960s, America had significant Marxist upheavals that paralleled what Mao was doing to China with the cultural revolution.
