Their views go far beyond the pop-socialism of most Bernie Sanders fans, instead explicitly advocating Soviet-style Communism and expressing brutal hatred towards the wealthy and anyone who disagrees with them.

The Architects of Woke is hosted and directed by filmmaker Rob Montz. Montz is the co-founder and CEO of Good Kid Productions. His online documentary work has attracted millions of views and coverage in major outlets, including The Economist, USA Today, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and The Adam Carolla Podcast.
