“Never believe something can’t happen to you. You’ve got to defend your country and your society or it will be destroyed.”
Elizabeth Rogliani is a young woman from Venezuela living in the U.S., and she has a dire warning for Americans. When it comes to roving mobs of cultural Marxists toppling historic statues, she has seen this all before.
Her main message is this: Don’t think it can’t happen here.
Real Clear Politics has a transcript of her viral video:
ELIZABETH ROGLIANI: Why do I even worry about some silly little statues coming down or some silly little street names changing? Why do I care?
It is because the last time I didn’t care about this, I was a teenager. I have already lived through this thing when I was living in Venezuela. Statues came down — Chavez didn’t want that history displayed. And then he changed the street names. Then came the [school curricula]. Then some movies couldn’t be shown, then certain TV channels, and so on and so forth.
You guys think this can’t happen to you, I’ve heard it so many times. But always be on guard. Never believe something can’t happen to you. You’ve got to defend your country and your society or it will be destroyed.
We didn’t believe it could happen to us. Most Venezuelans –Cubans warned us– and we were like, “This is Venezuela, we know about freedom. That’s not going to happen here.” Yet it happened. And there are literally a lot of people wanting to destroy the U.S.

Ms. Rogliani’s video caught the attention of Laura Ingraham who invited her onto her show.
From FOX News:
Venezuelan activist warns Americans about statue removals: It will be a ‘slippery slope’
In an interview on “The Ingraham Angle” with host Laura Ingraham, Rogliani warned that these actions mark a “slippery slope” toward a potential “cultural revolution.”
“I don’t think they’re seeing past what’s going to happen next because they’re thinking these are just symbols of oppression,” she noted. “But, I had a lot of friends [who] told me, ‘Oh, it’s just the Confederate statues.’ And, I said, ‘No, it’s not going to be just the Confederate statues. Just wait and see.’ This is a slippery slope.”
According to Rogliani, any and all symbols of American history are now on the chopping block.
“Founding Fathers are going to be attacked. Religious symbols are going to be attacked. And next, probably, museums.” she predicted. “I mean, anything can be attacked if you just let it happen. If you just let the first ones come down, then [there are] no limits to what’s next.”
Here’s the clip:
It’s a chilling warning, and all too easy to believe.
