Is Year Zero (Khmer Rouge/Killing Fields) Coming to America?

The idea behind Year Zero is that all culture and traditions within a society must be completely destroyed or discarded and a new revolutionary culture must replace it, starting from scratch. All of the history of a nation or people before Year Zero is largely deemed irrelevant, because it will ideally be purged and replaced from the ground up.

In Democratic Kampuchea, so-called New People—intellectuals and members of the old governments—were especially singled out and executed during the purges accompanying Year Zero.

Life in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge Regime

A few days after they took power in 1975, the Khmer Rouge forced perhaps two million people in Phnom Penh and other cities into the countryside to undertake agricultural work. Thousands of people died during the evacuations.

The Khmer Rouge also began to implement their radical Maoist and Marxist-Leninist transformation program at this time. They wanted to transform Cambodia into a rural, classless society in which there were no rich people, no poor people, and no exploitation. To accomplish this, they abolished money, free markets, normal schooling, private property, foreign clothing styles, religious practices, and traditional Khmer culture. Public schools, pagodas, mosques, churches, universities, shops and government buildings were shut or turned into prisons, stables, reeducation camps and granaries. There was no public or private transportation, no private property, and no non-revolutionary entertainment. Leisure activities were severely restricted. People throughout the country, including the leaders of the CPK, had to wear black costumes, which were their traditional revolutionary clothes.

During this time, everyone was deprived of their basic rights. People were not allowed to go outside their cooperative. The regime would not allow anyone to gather and hold discussions. If three people gathered and talked, they could be accused of being enemies and arrested or executed.

Is this what we are witnessing? The predictions of Revelation playing out before our eyes? My heart is breaking for America and the world as a whole.

The Khmer Rouge claimed that only pure people were qualified to build the revolution. Soon after seizing power, they arrested and killed thousands of soldiers, military officers and civil servants from the Khmer Republic regime led by Marshal Lon Nol, whom they did not regard as “pure.” Over the next three years, they executed hundreds of thousands of intellectuals; city residents; minority people such as the Cham, Vietnamese and Chinese; and many of their own soldiers and party members, who were accused of being traitors. Many were held in prisons, where they were detained, interrogated, tortured and executed. The most important prison in Cambodia, known as S-21, held approximately 14,000 prisoners while in operation. Only about 12 survived.

This is exactly what’s going on.

It’s a Maoist revolution.

They have no intention of “defunding the police”, just changing the nature of the police: they will become political commissars, just as in the Soviet Union and “Kampuchea”.

And just like Ayers said in 1970, they plan to liquidate about 25 million or more who can never be re-educated.

That’s what this is.

400,000,000 firearms.

17,000,000 ARs.

We all say, “ No.”

Um, no. The Cambodian’s were an almost complete agrarian society that had already suffered through a vicious period as an adjunct to the Vietnam war. Pol Pot was a full-on stalinist and insane (probably the same thing). The Khmer Rouge were promised that they would inherit the ancient Khmer lands and glory. The peasants, intellectuals, and professionals had nothing but their pride, and the clothes on their backs. Nothing to fight back against the KR.

While we here are going thru some disturbing and sometimes frightening events, only the few we see on the media are truly insane, including the media itself. The rest of us are proud Americans and exceptionally well armed. Stay calm (and keep your powder dry).

From what I read in Heinlein’s books I gathered that he wanted to kill at least eight Soviets before he was killed if they ever invaded.

If you don’t think it is a possibility you are not paying attention.

To the extent that the Marxists want all history gone, yes.

And this time they have “big tech” to make things much more streamlined.

Bernie Sanders may sound oh so reasonable when he says he doesn’t want to do away with the police...But...

Wait for it...A National Police Force and doing away with local control of police answerable to the people being policed is what the Left actually have in mind...

Centralized control with themselves (of course) in charge will be offered soon enough...Think of all the potential future Dim presidential candidates, and ask yourself do I want any one of them in charge of a Gestapo-like national police force?

The Left enjoys cooking up the poison and the antidote in the same lab...

Yeah. Starting with “contact tracing” apps to keep tabs on the recalcitrants.

Like us.

Yep! The only question is when. If President Trump wins the 2020 Elections it will be more than four years but less than 12 years from now. They need to graduate at least 10 classes from the colleges and universities to get their numbers up to where they have a voting majority. Plus each year “Conservatives” lose a number due to death. Factor in the political climate,the campaign to degenerate America by the colleges and universities aided and abetted by the media, the hatred of America by the majority of the young, the hatred of Capitalism by the majority of the young, the hatred of God by the young, the Democrats and meiia, the future is not difficult to for tell.

As pointed out on another thread “contact tracing” will morph into social credit scores thus ostracizing from society those of us that support our God given rights to remain free.

Also, expect false flag type protests to demonize us further.

Load mags and be prepared for it, when it comes full-scale.

Year Zero….. I’m feeling somewhat prescient as I made this same comment a couple days ago when watching the new 22 minute video by Millie Weaver. In it, there was a discussion about a group called Sunrise… in communist code language, this means ‘dawn of a new day’. I was remarking to a friend that this certainly was reminiscent of the ‘Year Zero’ that was talked about by Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. For all these folks (Pol Pot or the Antifa/BLM/Sunrise crowd), the ends justifies the means.

It is coming. The only question is when. Look what happened during the riots. I never though that I would see the Police kneeling and giving members of BLM blow jobs in public on sidewalks with full approval of their superiors. But I did. From this point on there is no bottom.
