Geez - I am so shocked! (note my sarcasm). Anyone who thinks communism is not alive and well and living in America has their head in the sand. Did not Kruschev say they would bury us by taking us over from within?
How soon people forget.

Hollywood has made dozens of movies about blacklisting of Communists in the fifties, and never miss any chance to thrust it into the popular consciousness.
Almost unknown are the many books that were suppressed in the West because of their political views, like Orwell's Homage to Catalonia and Animal Farm, and Trotsky's biography of Stalin.
Years ago Jason Epstein was editor of the New York Review of Books. That's all you need to know about him to understand why the book was never published.

Might be worth if for some Freepers with money to look into getting the rights and publishing it. Self and small-press publishing is getting easier and easier with computer technology.
It is interesting to speculate why the very liberal Jason Epstein of Random House won't publish the book. One clue lies in the surfacing of Cyrus Vance's name. Today, Epstein is the editor for Richard Holbrooke, Democrat foreign policy guru and former Ambassador to the UN. Holbrooke was given a leg up by Secretary of State Cyrus "Let a thousand flowers bloom" Vance during the Carter administration. As Depty Asst Secretary of State for east Asia, Holbrooke pushed hard for the recognition of Viet Nam in 1978-9, only to be blindsided when Hanoi demanded two billion dollars in reparations. Holbrooke also sought to recognize the Communist government in Laos, only to find that the generals were drug dealers and it might not look good. Leads one to think...

The fact is that these charges are proven in "The Sword and the Shield: The Mitrokhin Archives". In fact, the KGB routinely tried to use the "useful idiots" in this country to stir up racial hatred,
The best story is how the Soviets gave million to the Communist Party USA, but two brothers in the CPUSA leadership were FBI agents nearly the whole of their adult lives. They totally skimmed off the money the the Soviets gave the party and lived quite lavishly in Chicago. It must have been crushing to the commies to see Ronald Reagan eventually give them a special service medal in the 80's when they came out of the cold.
To: aculeus Eric Breindel VENONA PAPERS, Armand Hammer and Al Gore--Partners in CPUSA
Eric Breindel went to his New York bar for a drink, developed liver complications and died shortly. He'd just outed the KGB hand in CPUSA in The Venona Papers
Recommend Edward Jay Epstein Dossier: The Secret History of Armand Hammer in which the money-laundering paymaster of Lenin, Stalin et al is recognized for his service to the CPUSSR and its KGB (in all its alphabeic permutations).
The American left is the bookcase that swings open to the communist active measures, be they Russian or Chinese.
Watch carefully as their agent Hillary maneuvers through a shrinking candidate field to the podium before the draped red banner. How did OBL get the Air Force One codes? From the crew that got the FBI files, the Vince Foster files, gave Russia 17,000 CIA files, gave China warheads and guidance and supercomputers oh my.
And now we see a peace movement in the U.S. so like the nuclear freeze movement--both clandestinely aided and abetted by active measures.
It's asymmetrical warfare, unrestricted warfare.
Was the Kursk firing food to Afghanistan? Is the hand of China "saving" Afghanistan as it did Tibet, as it arms Pakistan with conventional and nuclear and missile aid?
The Cold War is over. China is our strategic partner. Santa Claus knows if you're bad or good.--All statements are equally true.
