Communist Goals (1963) (Should now read - The Liberal Agenda)
Congressional Record ^ | Jan 10, 63 | HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR.

Posted on 01/13/2004 6:20:20 AM PST by SLB

Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963

Current Communist Goals



Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following "Current Communist Goals," which she identifies as an excerpt from "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen:

[From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]


1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

With the crumbling of the iron curtain many have thought communism died. It is alive and well and lives in the hearts of liberals - press and politicans alike.

This has made it to FR on a couple of other threads.

Some have made the comment that it is a hoax and pointed to Snopes. I have checked with the Snopes web page and this does not show up there. There are some minor articles, but nothing as detailed as this.

Here is the URL to one of the previous posts.

Looks like they've won, especially in light of numbers 16 through 21.

Thanks for posting it. We must never forget what their agenda is and work to keep it from taking over this country.

There is little doubt that one term of algore and a leftist congress would connect all dots.

Leftist's control education, took a shot of taking over the economy, and certainaly had the death grasp on politics until 1994, and now the pink Doctor Dean is using "God" - religion to get back what they saw slip through their fingers.

How the heathen rage!

They have only changed their name to liberal. And they have 'McCarthism' to keep anyone from calling them what they are.

Tomorrow, acting on the belief that Jim Jefford's approach to reconciliation of the parties is correct, President George W. Bush will formally announce his party affiliation to Independent-Democratic as a way to heal the nation's wounds. The President's aide Karl Rove added, "He seeks a bipartisan spirit in politics and has always maintained that he is a compassionate conservative, reaching out to his comrades on the other side of the aisle."

Actually, this story did not occur; RINO/CINO Bush did not really switch his party. Officially that is. Gore and Dean at least admit their leanings. Bush and the RINO/CINO congress passed Medicare Scripts which is a quantum leap forward to total takeover of an industry by the gov't.. I fear you are not seeing the whole picture: The Reagan Revolution is dead and the GOP is more liberal than the Dems were in 1981! The Dems are now the Social Progressive Party.

Republicans are now the equivalent of Kennedy Democrats, Democrats are now liberals and liberals are now socialists. Of course there still is a conservative base, which is slowly dwindling due to the phenomena that is occuring.

Now, apply this to what GW did over the last two years. Sort of makes sense. I am saddened, deeply saddened....

When your political enemies tag you with likeness of "Hitler" and the masses want gov't care give them care.

Few in this nation have the backbone to rip out by the root the well planted seeds of demanding the gov't be mama.

The people of this nation have sown those seeds by whom they have elected.
