According to Keyes, Brighteon.TV has brought together people who wish to "restore the integrity of our self-government" and "rid the country of the shadow of this effort to install a government that really reflects the Marxist understanding."
He adds: "We need to remember exactly that it's about an ideology, a philosophy, an understanding that has been proven in practice to be obsessed with nothing but power. Anything that gets in the way of the consolidation of power in the hands of an elitist few is discarded."
Keyes notes that the U.S. has been in a position to "prove that [it] could build a nation whose success has never been equal or exceeded in the history of mankind." He adds: "Do you think any of the philosophers thought that government of, by and for the people would result in the regime that put all the others in the shade? No, they didn't. They scoffed at the very idea and we made it work."
The "Matrixxx Grooove" hosts then elaborate on the reason why the leftist playbook needs to be understood.
"What we want to do is to have people understand what the playbook really is and how it works. Because if you understand: Know thy enemy and the truth shall set you free," Pedersen explains.
"We've actually done a lot of digging as to the controlling mechanism that does plague us. However, I don't think a lot of people are seeing a lot of actual wins that have actually taken place – and that's why we're here. Basically there's a playbook being used." (Related: YES, it's communism we face, and the revolutionary playbook is unfolding right on schedule.)
Grove says: "The tools that they're using against us aren't new tools, [although they're] new to a lot of people here in America. You mentioned history, Alan, and I think that's very important – because what you're watching right now is the mob basically tearing down our history."
The "Matrixxx Grooove" host also mentions that Americans who grew up in the country 25 to 30 years ago had a grasp of the Constitution, alongside the concept and importance of freedom.
"Now, every country pretty much doesn't respect those freedoms the way we do here in America," Grove says. "Right now, America is somehow the bad guy and the enemy, and the people that want freedom are the people that are standing in the way of getting back to normal."
Pedersen then cites Melina Abdullah as one parallel between events in the past and the present. Born Melina Rachel Reimann, Abdullah is heavily linked to the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. Her profile at California State University Los Angeles describes her as "among the original group of organizers that convened to form BLM. She continues to serve as an L.A. chapter lead and contributes to the national leadership."
"She was born a Reimann, who is her relative? Well, it's Gunther Reimann – who is part of the Nazi Party. In fact, he was also part of the Communist Party of Germany," Pedersen adds. Reimann is Abdullah's father, establishing the BLM-Nazi Party link.
Aside from this, Pedersen also mentions that Antifa is not a recent occurrence as it was used previously in Germany by the communists there. "In Germany, there was a playbook for Antifaschistische Aktion. Today there's Antifa," he says.
Pedersen adds that even the concept of police defunding was not a novel concept, having been proposed earlier by Nazi official Hermann Goering. "Now we have the BLM playbook along with the German playbook. I think that's pretty interesting, and it's a huge red pill for a lot of people. The old playbook is there today, compare and contrast," he remarks.
Keyes throws in his two cents on the matter: "The enemy is seeking to destroy us, but the enemy has attacked us before. As a matter of fact, since we rose to preeminence in this world, the enemy has attacked us continually in every way they could come up with. Old playbooks, new playbooks every playbook."

"Throughout the whole time of their advance, they were attacking capitalism, and therefore attacking the American way of life, exploiting various fault lines in our societies and civilization. When it didn't work based on the fault line of wealth, they decided to go to other things. So they played religious differences, racial differences and so forth," the "Let's Talk America" host adds.
