The Left’s Attack on the Nuclear Family Echoes Language of CCP: Morgan Zegers
Zegers added: “It’s really taken a 180, and gone from women’s empowerment and supporting women and not making us only housewives. It’s done a complete way of saying, actually, reject all aspects that make you a woman.”
’s attack on the nuclear family and the collectivist mindset that is growing in the United States echoes narratives from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP
), says Morgan Zegers, founder of Young Americans Against Socialism.
“The left’s attack on the nuclear family … all goes into that growing support for socialism, that collectivist mindset that we’re seeing in America,” Zegers told The Epoch Times’ “Crossroads” at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida, last week.
Young Americans Against Socialism is a nonpartisan nonprofit dedicated to exposing socialism’s failures by creating viral educational videos for social media.
Zegers said she has grown increasingly concerned by the language used at socialist conventions that focus on the topics of the family unit and pregnancies.
“If you look at what happens at socialist conventions, they discuss how they have to get rid of the American nuclear family structure to implement socialism—it’s more easy,” she said. “What they specifically talk about is how pregnancy is a tool of oppression, and that they need to free women from being ‘baby making machines.’”
“We recently saw communist China use that exact language, and so it’s very concerning for me,” Zegers added.
Under communism the family unit is an obstacle to human liberation. Classical communism regards economic factors as key in determining the formation of familial relationships, and it requires the private family unit to be revolutionized into a form of public ownership.
