Great Republican Mike Gonzalez

By Ann Guthrie Hingston

This month we celebrate Mike Gonzalez, a Montgomery County Conservative and nationally recognized writer and public speaker on critical race theory, identity politics, diversity, and multiculturalism.  As a youth in Cuba and later as an international journalist in Asia, Latin America, and Europe he witnessed the impact of Marxism and Fascism in destroying trust in government.  He sees the United States under the same threat and is committed to exposing it as a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation, in his books and in articles that appear often in the Restoring America section of the Washington Examiner.   

Gonzalez writes as a former journalist with facts and context on topics few others are willing to touch.  In his most recent book, "BLM: The Making of a New Marxist Revolution"  he exposes how the George Floyd riots were not spontaneous.  It took organizational muscle and ideological commitment built over the years to mobilize some 12,000 demonstrators and 633 related riots.  His book examines BLM’s leaders, delving into their backgrounds and exposing their agendas – something the media has refused to do. He exposes them as avowed Marxists who say they want to dismantle our way of life.

Recently in an article he wrote about groups championing parents’ rights titled: “It’s the Moms, Stupid!” he wrote: “The Biden administration is making clear once again whom it fears the most. It is not China, Russia, or, needless to say, Republicans. No. Enemy No. 1 is America’s mothers and fathers. They stand athwart the administration’s mad dash to remake America, yelling, “Stop!”

Those are strong words from a former US State Department official and Wall Street Journal editorial chief of their Asian and European papers.  We are fortunate the Gonzalez family settled here and that Mike Gonzalez, an American Patriot, is loudly calling out the cancel culture.
