Survivor of Mao’s cultural revolution warns of public school indoctrination: ‘The country I love is becoming the country I left’

New Hampshire Republican candidate Lily Tang Williams knows firsthand the evil of communism and issued a dire warning that through indoctrination in schools, “the country I love is becoming the country I left.”

Tang Williams immigrated to the United States from China in 1988 after surviving Chairman Mao Zedong’s cultural revolution. In an interview with Fox News Digital, she detailed how the deliberate divisiveness that Mao had employed is now being replicated in American government schools in order to “brainwash the children…to control [the] country’s future.”

“I thought Chairman Mao was god because we had to chant every day in school, ‘long live Chairman Mao, ten thousand years,'” she told the outlet of how fervently she had been instructed to adore the leader.

The congressional hopeful laid out how “Mao used standard Marxist terms like oppressor versus oppressed” and explained that, “He actually divided all Chinese citizens – because we’re [of the] same race and have [the] same skin color – into Five Black Classes versus the Five Red Classes.”

“Tragedy is where young people were brainwashed to say, I want to be Red Class, I’m going to denounce my family to turn them over to Red Guards, to the authorities, change last name and draw the line between me and my parents,” Tang Williams explained of the leader’s reign that led to the deaths of as many as 45 million people.

Now she sees a failure to properly educate on the evils of communism merged with the tenets of critical race theory leading toward a destructive outcome for America. “Our children in schools were not taught real history. When I go to school for past five years, educate them about horrors of communism and socialism, they don’t know the personal stories. They’ve never heard eyewitness stories. They just bought into whatever they were taught.”

“America is not systemic racist country…no baby is born racist, period. And I call this Marxist revolution because they know the traditional communism, Marxism would not work,” she argued as the class divisions are not supported by the American economy. “But they use racism – slavery history – to attack destroying America. But look what they’re doing. All they focus on is people’s race and skin color.”

“The radical left are the real racist because they want to separate people into different groups,” Tang Williams insisted. “They want to separate people into different identity politics.”

“All the communists know how to control the education – brainwash the children in order to control a country’s future,” she added. The cautionary tale of survivors like Tang Williams has not gone overlooked as leaders like Gov. Ron DeSantis have placed a focus on educating students on these issues.

“While it’s fashionable in some circles to whitewash the history of communism, Florida will stand for truth and remain as a beachhead for freedom,” DeSantis had stated at the signing ceremony where he declared Nov. 7 Victims of Communism Day in Florida.

But DeSantis can’t be the only one pushing back against the indoctrination of the youth as the congressional candidate noted, “The purpose is to destroy America, the only country that still stands for freedom, liberty [and] individual rights. So the communist-Marxist people have to create something for people to buy into in order to demonize destroying America.”

This indoctrination has tainted the halls of Congress as well with progressive politicians like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) arguing, “When millennials talk about concepts like democratic socialism, we’re not talking about these kinds of ‘Red Scare’ boogeyman. We’re talking about countries and systems that already exist that have already been proven to be successful in the modern world.”

“How many people,” Tang Williams asked of AOC and her ilk, “are [the progressives” willing to see die of starvation, be murdered and killed in order to have [an accurate] conclusion [about socialism’?”

“I fear the country I love is becoming the country I left. How about my American dream? How about my children’s American dream? Will it still be alive for them when they get married, have children?” she asked rightfully concerned. “So I call out this cultural revolution, my second cultural revolution, because I survived the first one and I don’t want to relive another one.”
