  • China abducts anti-Communist from Hong Kong. The Democracy Activist Issues Dramatic Appeal

    01/03/2016 5:46:01 AM PST · by se99tp · 6 replies
    Ms. Chow said: "In the past, we were safe because we lived in Hong Kong instead of the mainland China." But as she emphasised "the circumstances have changed" after abduction" of anti-Communist bookstore worker Mr. Lee ...Ms. Chow informed that, the bookstore located on busy street in Hong Kong, was established by Mr Lee. (..) I hope everyone in the world who believes in universal values of freedom and human rights could stand up and speak for this incident to stop the political suppression. Even though I am also concerned for my personal safety after this incident happened, I still...
  • SHOULD CHRISTIANS FIGHT COMMUNISM?

    SHOULD CHRISTIANS FIGHT COMMUNISM? Yes or No? By: Henry R. Pike Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. (Pas. 33:12) Before any attempt is made to answer this question, we must first clearly understand the term "Christian." Let's see what a Christian is not, then what a Christian is. A true Christian is not a "non-Jew, a do-gooder, a nice guy, one who goes to a church building, pays dues, sings hymns, provides for his family, etc." You should go to a place where God's word is faithfully preached and practiced, but going into a church building wil...

  • Eastern Europe’s Christian Reawakening

    In Hungary, Croatia, and elsewhere in Eastern Europe, a pro-family, pro-life revolution and a rediscovery of Christian roots is occurring. While few in the American media have noticed, this trend should challenge those who simply lament Europe’s moral malaise. Unnoticed in the shadow of a secularized west, religion’s public role has been growing in the east since the collapse of communism. Since taking power in 2010, Prime Minister Viktor Orban—a charismatic veteran of Hungary’s anti-Communist underground—has victoriously stood at the forefront of what Americans call the culture wars. In 2011, Orban’s government ratified a new constitution that defines marriage as...

    Enza Ferreri Blog ^ | 17 April 2013 | Enza Ferreri
    Among the people who complained about the cost of Margaret Thatcher's funeral (and on this I happen to agree with them, especially in these financially hard times) are also some of the protesters, the "hate mob" at the funeral, who in fact increased those costs by indirectly forcing more security measures. This tells you a lot about the Leftists, in particular it exposes the difference between what they say and what they do. This funeral cost duplicity is in perfect parallel with the hypocrisy of claiming to be compassionate and wanting to help the working class people while implementing...

    Television audiences across China watched an anarchist antihero rebel against a totalitarian government and persuade the people to rule themselves. Soon the Internet was crackling with quotes of “V for Vendetta’s” famous line: “People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.” The airing of the movie Friday night on China Central Television stunned viewers and raised hopes that China is loosening censorship. … The 2005 movie, based on a comic book, is set in an imagined future Britain with a fascist government. The protagonist wears a mask of Guy Fawkes, the 17th-century English...
  • Walesa Unveils One More For The 'Gipper'

    Lech Walesa said that there would not be a free Poland without Ronald Reagan, during the unveiling of a statue in Warsaw of the late American president on Monday.The former Solidarity leader said that “as a participant in these events,” it was “inconceivable” that such changes would have come about without the last American president during the post-1945 cold-war era. Walesa added that thirty years ago, it seemed that the fall of the communist system would not be possible without a nuclear war. The bronze statue of Reagan has been installed not far from the American Embassy, on Ujazdowskie Avenue,...

    Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) isn't alone in having trouble understanding how the government is organized. In a Sunday article posted on the Chicago Sun-Times's Web site, staff reporter Mary Houlihan credits the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-WI) with running the House Committee on Un-American Activities. That would have been quite an accomplishment, given the fact McCarthy never served in the House of Representatives. Houlihan writes of photographer Milton Rogovin, who died last month. After military service during World War II, Rogovin "organized a chapter of the optometrists’ union and served as librarian for the Communist Party of Buffalo." "Then the...

    Earlier this month, Peru's Supreme Court rejected the appeal of former President Alberto Fujimori of his 25-year sentence for murder and abduction, reaffirming the principle that no one is above the law. This is but the latest of several triumphs for human rights and accountability in the Andean nation. The United States would do well to study the Peruvian example. In 1992, the most brutal communist guerrilla group in Latin American history brought dozens of car bombs and political assassinations to Lima. A nation of more than 22 million, with a sophisticated, cosmopolitan capital, seemed unable to counter the threat...
  • McCarthy was right, and my life proves it.

    On the day I born, June 9th, 1954, Senator Joseph McCarthy was asked the famous question; “Have you no sense of decency sir?”. Some members of the media who saw an opening, pounced on the opportunity, and never looked back. This would become the beginning of the end of the anti-communist mood in America. It would be the birth of terms like McCarthyism, Redbaiting, and Blacklisting. The heirs of this movement are much more numerous today than in 1954, and the true journalists have been replaced by mere actors, playing the part of journalists. We have gone from a nation...

    The younger generation probably doesn't realize that the word socialism means and connotes a system that is profoundly un-American. Socialism has virtually disappeared from our national lexicon since the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) collapsed because of Ronald Reagan's policies and the National Socialist (Nazi) Party was destroyed by the United States in World War II. The American Heritage Dictionary defines socialism as a system of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods are owned by a centralized government that plans and controls the economy. Both Webster and Random House identify socialism as a "Marxist...

    To some Czechs, it was the greatest escape of the cold war. As Czech fugitives, the three men ended up on wanted posters across East Germany. But here in central Europe, where history is often rewritten, there are many others who view the five young Czechs as reckless murderers, even though they dodged 24,000 Soviet soldiers and the East German police for 28 days through snow-covered forests to reach the freedom of West Berlin in 1953. ...

    The long-term implications of Buckley's stands were enormous. By remaking the conservative movement in his own image, in which the emphasis was on anti-communism and a libertarian skepticism of government power, he ensured that it, and the Republican Party, which it came to dominate, would be a place where Jew-haters were unwelcome. That enabled liberal Jews, such as Commentary editor Norman Podhoretz, to feel comfortable making common cause with the right on a host of issues as he began his own journey away from the left. Though expectations that the Jews would ditch liberalism en masse were always unrealistic, the...

    WALKING THE ROAD THAT BUCKLEY BUILT By Michael Johns It can be said that modern conservatism knows only two times. There was the time before him and there was the time after him, and those two times could not be more contrasting. In this stark contrast lies his larger-than-life legacy, and let there be no mistake: It is a legacy that will endure the ages. As word of William F. Buckley, Jr.'s passing reached his many students, admirers and colleagues late last week, it seemed each had an account (some grand, some small) of how this intellectual giant memorably impacted...

    A number of anti-communist films were made in Hollywood during the late 40s through the 50s, many of them featuring well-known names and of high quality. Almost none are available today. This is no accident, comrades. We owe a nod of thanks to Thomas Lifson for alerting us to yesterday's rare showing of the anti-communist thriller, The Woman on Pier 13 (AKA, I Married A Communist). Pier 13 is far from unique. It's easy to understand why Man on a Tightrope (1953) went down the memory hole, directed as it was by the Joe McCarthy of the film world, that...

It shows a fictional commemoration of the revolution on its 16th anniversary in which locals are asked to recount their "own revolution."
