Posted on 11/24/2005 3:57:15 AM PST by EQAndyBuzz

Communism 1963 Goals Read In Senate

Is Communism Dead? Read Its Avowed 1963 Goals - Sound Just A Bit Familiar? UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Congressional Record

PROCEEDINGS AND DEBATES OF THE 88th CONGRESS FIRST SESSION VOLUME 109-PART 1: JANUARY 9, 1963, TO JANUARY 30, 1963

UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, 1963

Current Communist Goals

EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES 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)

CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS:

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

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

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

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

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

Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

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

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

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

Allow all soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

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.)

Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

Do away with all loyalty oaths.

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

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

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

Get control of 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.

Gain control of all student newspapers.

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

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

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

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."

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

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

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

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

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

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."

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.

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

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.

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

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

Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

Internationalize the Panama Canal.


TOPICS: Culture/Society
KEYWORDS: 1963; communism; democrats
Every year on Thankksgiving morning, I read this. It reminds me of what our culture, heritage and beliefs are up against.

It reminds me of what our founding fathers created for us and who wants to destroy it.

It reminds me of why it is important that each morning we thank God for all he has given us and how we need to impart our beliefs on our children, so they have the ability to fight against main stream media bias.

It reminds me that this world is not a perfect place, and that we live in a world where our continuin freedom is in the hands of President Bush.

And we give thanks on this day for our freedom and to celebrate America.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving Everyone and may the lord bless you and your families on this day.

Most of these goals have been or are being accomplished. It is never too late to fight back. Begin now.

It's also important to remember that most of these goals have been accomplished by the political parties especially the Democrat party. The Democrat party has become the socialist party in the U.S.

Those who support the Democrats and the left are fighting for the goals listed by "The Naked Communist."

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

The Commies are trying to do this right now by screaming about bringing our Troops home before the Iraqi's are ready. I know I'm preaching to the choir though this stuff that is going on with our guys in the middle really has me wound up and I'm ready for the fight that the commies can bring anywhere anytime. God Bless America and ALL who have and will defend HER.

That's a very chilling read on this day of Thanksgiving!

I would say they have achieved their goals with only a few pockets of resistance such as here on FRee Republic.

We scored a huge victory last Friday night in the House of Representatives...

Interesting to note, too, that Syd Herlong was a Democrat (back when their were actually Conservatives still left in the party).

It looks like it's "mission acomplished" to me.

They have infiltrated the democrat party, gained control of the media, gained control of the school system, promoted homosexuality as "normal", banned prayer and mention of Christianity in schools, gained control of hollywood, discrediting the constitution, re-write American history, etc etc.

Can I have my Lada now? White one please. Where's my government row house? my hunk of cheese?

Good list. However,to be consistent I think they should add one more:
Eliminate the right of common people to keep and bear arms. Only the government should have a right to arms.

I feel the same way. It takes great restraint for me to not punch some leftist idiot in the mouth when I hear them talking politics.
I wish I could transport them back in time to the Ukraine in the 1930's so they can have a taste of what they wish for.

Evidently you are clueless regarding the stupitity of the American voter.

The Democrats can and will succeed unless the American voter learns the tactics of the Democrat Party and the mass media.

My personal opinion is that before an individual can cast a ballot they must first demonestrate that thy know what they are voting for, or against.

Is this really true? I always believed this was a long planned process but this is almost so accurate for today it seems fake.

If they have not achieved all of these goals, they are definitely in progress to achieve them. We should be thankful today for those rights we still have, refuse to lose anymore, and return this country to what made it great.

May God bless all those who go into Harm's Way and a special blessing for all the families that await their return.

"I wish I could transport them back in time to the Ukraine in the 1930's so they can have a taste of what they wish for."

I agree and the problem with the commies in this country is they don't even have a clue of what they wish for is. God Bless you and all of yours. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and A very Merry Christmas.

"Evidently you are clueless regarding the stupitity of the American voter. "

I am clueless? Au contraire mon frere. I am fully aware of the stupidity of the American voter. I got to witness my in-laws voting for Corzine because they believed he will lower property and income taxes in Jersey.

That and their hand is stapled to the level marked "D". My in-laws are Jewish. If Hitler ran as a Democrat my in-laws would vote for him.

"Is this really true? I always believed this was a long planned process but this is almost so accurate for today it seems fake."

This goes back even further. If you read up on the Alger Hiss trial and saw what Roosevelt did it would disgust you. Edward Murrow was the pride of the media. And he was a leftist.

This is why we need a national daily newspaper that actually reports facts and tells the American people the truth.

Yes! I was sittin here watchin C-SPAM.org last Friday night and sendin Art Bell mental energy waves right down through the dome of that Crapitol, sayin "DON'T YOU DUMMIES DARE!!!"

"Don't you dare demoralize the earth's only super-power once again!"

"Don't you create another black wall monument of dispair out of the courageous lives of 2,000+ VOLUNTEERS!!!"

"DON'T YOU GO THERE AGAIN!!!"

They've gotten a firm grip on our education system, that's for sure. Churning out ignorant little socialists (neo-communists) in droves.
