...Institute of Franciscan friars destroyed in a similar way
The destruction of the Little Sisters...follows a pattern similar to the Vatican-induced collapse of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate (FFI), an order of Franciscans that followed a more traditional pattern of community life and that made free use of the traditional Latin Mass in accordance with the rites prevailing in 1962...
Just as in the case of the Little Sisters, Braz de Aviz brought about the removal of the superiors of the FFI from their positions, and even the founder, Fr. Stefano Maria Manelli, was sent into house arrest at the age of 81. Five years later, he remains under house arrest. Other superiors were sent to remote houses of the order.
Likewise, a commissioner was placed over the order, Fr. Fidenzio Volpi, who seemed implacably hostile to the orders charism and its works in general. Under his leadership, the FFIs seminary was completely shut down, as was its book publishing service. A majority of the brothers left and were incardinated in other dioceses, and at least 15 cloisters of the order reportedly have closed their doors. The Traditional Latin Mass was only permitted by special permission from the commissioner.
Moreover, just as in the case of the Little Sisters, the members of the FFI never were given any specific reason for the imposition of the commissioner, except vague hints that they were too traditional for the tastes of the Vatican authorities, including, presumably, Pope Francis, who has refused to accept appeals from the orders members. Within a few years, a thriving and beloved institute of Franciscans had become a shell of its former self.

See Bishop Sheen's explanation of the Counter Church at:
Meanwhile there are remnant branches of the True Church with Bishops with apostolic succession and whose priests practice the Mass and doctrines of the Church without incorporating ANY of the dangerous and unauthorized practices that were issued by "Paul VI", and who practice the Catholic faith only as it was left to us by all the Popes who preceded "John XXIII". They refuse to even recognize the authority of the so-called Popes who support the Vatican II council and the Novus Ordo (New Order - of Mass).
And that is all based on recognizing that such men were and are non-Catholics, teaching heresies. The Church is unable to give dangerous errors and doctrines, only truth. That is how it is obvious, with a little research into their teachings and official acts, to realize that it is impossible that such men were true Popes.
The sisters and friars can join with such groups and continue even more faithfully than they thought they were to Jesus Christ and the Gospel (once they recognize the true source of their demise).
I guess a nicer version of this: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066993/
The Knights of Malta was the big one. If the Leftists could take over that group and co-opt them, small traditional groups are then easier to seize.
Even if they can not make the individuals change, they can seize assets from conservatives, and transfer them to Leftists within the Church hierarchy. It is another naked power grab.
