Shortly after the release of his second book, “How Evil Works,” WND Managing Editor David Kupelian appeared on the Fox News primetime program “Hannity.”

He told Sean Hannity that Barack Obama, then in his second year as president, was “attempting a socialist coup d’état in Washington, D.C.” and had been “steeped in Marxist ideology for the past 30 years.”

Liberal commentator Bob Beckel, seated next to Kupelian, visibly seethed with rage.

“If you go back and look at what Marxism is, and what socialism is, there is nothing close to either one of them in the United States!” he snapped.

Beckel added that calling Obama a Marxist was “worse than Joe McCarthy calling people in the State Department a communist” and that Kupelian should apologize to the president.

Watch Kupelian mix it up with Beckel on “Hannity”:

But Beckel missed the point entirely, says Kupelian. During a guest appearance last week on “The Hagmann Report,” the WND vice president was asked about that particular on-air argument with Beckel. Kupelian observed that an entirely new form of Marxism has been insinuated into America’s major institutions in recent decades, one very different from the classic “workers-of-the-world-unite!” version Karl Marx espoused during the mid-19th century.

“Marx’s prophesied international workers’ revolution didn’t happen, except in Russia,” Kupelian explained to the Hagmann show hosts. “All the true-believer Marxists said, ‘What the hell happened? [The revolution] didn’t happen.’ But they were true believers, so they still had to believe in Marxism, so they created a new Marxism, and that neo-Marxism, which is exactly what Barack Obama was and is, [comes about] not by means of revolution, which is quickly; it’s by evolution.”

This neo-Marxism arrived in the United States in the 1930s via the Frankfurt School, Kupelian explained. Members of this group of Marxist theorists and philosophers believed they needed to undertake a “long march through the institutions” in order to transform America’s Christian culture and major institutions in their atheistic-Marxist image. This “long march” would include neo-Marxist infiltration of the churches, the grade schools, the universities, the news media and Hollywood, Kupelian said.

They seem to have done a very good job planting their worldview in the universities, Kupelian said, noting that last year, millions of American college students became almost cult followers of socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Why? Kupelian told the Hagmann Report audience that American students are simply not taught what makes America exceptional, about actual history and economics, about what makes families, cultures and nations thrive; rather, they are taught almost exclusively about the darkest aspects of American history, especially slavery, segregation and the seizing of Native American lands.

Students would be better served if they were enabled to understand and respect the Judeo-Christian moral foundation of America, said Kupelian, who noted that the vast majority of Americans in the World War II generation held strongly to a few basic values: They believed God had blessed their country, they believed human life was sacred, and they believed sex was supposed to be reserved for married couples.

“We call them Judeo-Christian values,” he said, “[but] it doesn’t have to do with whether you go to church or not. It’s just some core, universal moral values that basically everybody bought into, everybody except those way out on the fringe. … These are the values that we embraced, and that made America great and unified.”

But the largely atheistic left rejected those core values, Kupelian said. And having established a foothold in all of America’s major cultural institutions, they are attempting to entirely scrap the nation’s moral foundation, and we’re now at the point that anyone who disagrees with the left is demonized as a Nazi, sexist, homophobe, xenophobe, or the left’s most potent epithet of all … racist.

Watch Kupelian talk about how neo-Marxism has been transforming America:

“Racist” is one of the left’s favorite labels, and indeed they regard America as a “racist nation.” But to Kupelian, that’s an absurd charge given that Americans elected Barack Obama as president, twice.

“America is the least racist nation on the face of the Earth, in case anybody out there didn’t know,” Kupelian declared. “This is the least racist nation in all of history, and the evidence is that we elected a black guy twice as president. Racist nations don’t do that.”

He pointed out just how remarkable it was that Obama could be elected in a country where only about 22 percent of Americans considered themselves liberal at the time.

“So how’d we elect Obama?” he asked. “And I’m saying part of that is because the – what do you want to call it? – the magic, the magnetism, the appeal, the allure of having a black president. I think it’s a delightful idea to have a black president, if just to show, as I said, to the world that America bought into Martin Luther King’s dream of a colorblind America.”

Kupelian believes America’s national guilt over slavery played a part in Obama’s election.

“There was a genuine national guilt over slavery and segregation, and there was a certain joy – I felt it – before Obama really screwed up and did such horrible things – there was a certain joy that Americans had at electing a black president,” he stated.

For expressing this view, Kupelian was singled out by Right Wing Watch, a project of the George Soros-funded left-wing group People for the American Way. Kupelian has been profiled 25 different times by Right Wing Watch in recent years.

Watch Kupelian explain how Obama was enabled to be elected president of the United States:

To Kupelian, part of the beauty of America is that Americans, by and large, repudiated racism over the course of a single generation. A country that still segregated the races in the 1950s elected its first black president only 50 years later. Now racism is quickly disappearing.

“I don’t know any racist people,” Kupelian said. “I barely even know of any racist people, and I’m an editor of a major news organization. I get thousands of emails a week, I hear from a lot of people. There are not a lot of racists out there. This is a total bogeyman created by the left because they have nothing else and nobody believes them anymore, so they have to be like, ‘Everybody’s a racist.'”

The host talked at length about Kupelian’s most recent book, prompting this response from the author.

“The premise of my book “The Snapping of the American Mind” is not only that the left is crazy, because I think everybody mostly knows that,” Kupelian asserted. “It is that the left is driving everybody else in America over the cliff, too, and I go into all the areas: suicide and drug addiction and porn and family breakdown and all the pathologies that are ripping our beautiful country apart, and I trace them all back to the crazy left that’s in rebellion against reality and trying to confuse everybody else.”

Kupelian urges Americans not to get angry and hateful, but to deny the left power by simply refusing to abide by its alternate version of reality.

“All they have is invective and calling people names and calling you a Nazi, and ‘Trump’s a Nazi, Trump is Hitler,'” he said. “Hitler killed 11 million people. Trump killed zero people. Trump is not Hitler. But it’s all they’ve got. They call names and they intimidate people, and that’s how they hope to get back to power – God forbid.”
