    As singers, Kate Smith and Paul Robeson have something in common. They each recorded the song, “That’s Why Darkies Were Born.” At NJ.com, Paul Mulshine accurately describes the song as “written from a standpoint of sympathy for Southern blacks,” which helps explains why Robeson, a black communist, sang the song as well. To read the lyrics is to understand how perverse is an out-of-nowhere attack on the beloved Ms. Smith. “Someone had to fight the Devil/ Shout about Gabriel’s Horn/ Someone had to stoke the train/ That would bring God’s children to green pastures/ That’s why darkies were born.” Substitute...

    We know that history holds many surprises. One doesn't expect to learn more about the secret history of of the Gulag than we already know from both Solzhenitsyn's "Gulag Acrcipelago" and Anne Applebaum's "Gulag: A history." This feat, however, is exactly what author Tim Tzouliadis has accomplished: the previously unknown story of the thousands of Americans who, during the Depression, sought employment and a better future in the "worker's paradise" built by the Bolsheviks. All kinds of Americans joined the exodus. Some of them were Communists or fellow-travelors but the majority were average Americans - skilled workers promised paid passage,...

    SEATTLE - A few weeks ago I opened my mail to find a letter from King County. It turns out that since two of my boys participate in Little League they are eligible to apply for a King County Sports/Academics Award. My interest turned to dismay when I saw for whom the Award was named, Paul Robeson. Paul Robeson was without a question a talented athlete, an incredible singer and a civil rights visionary, well ahead of his time. He was a brilliant law student who overcame formidable obstacles. But amongst students of history, Paul Robeson is as well known...

    Paul Robeson: Singer, actor, intellectual and defender of tyranny By Steven Martinovich web posted January 19, 2004 On January 20, as part of its long-running Black Heritage series, the U.S. Postal Service will release a commemorative stamp featuring Paul Robeson. He is remembered not just for his "prodigious talents as a performer but also for his tireless and uncompromising commitment to civil rights and social justice," stated an USPS press release last month. On the face of it, it's easy to see why Robeson is being honored. Born into poverty in 1898, he distinguished himself in high school as both...

    <p>December 29, 2003 -- THE U.S. Postal Service on Jan. 20 will formally unveil a first-class postage stamp, the latest in its Black Heritage series, honoring Paul Robeson, the renowned actor-singer-orator-activist - and unapologetic Stalinist.</p> <p>Does Robeson deserve what the Postal Service rightly calls "one of the nation's highest recognitions"? It's not an easy question to answer - because of all the many Hollywood radicals now worshiped as political heroes, Robeson's legacy is the most complex.</p>
  • Paul Robeson was a dedicated Stalinist, not an American hero

    Also being released early in 2004 will be the 27th stamp in the Black Heritage series, which will honor actor, singer, civil rights activist and athlete Paul Robeson", so wrote the Washington Post. The paper went on to claim that Robeson "was labeled a subversive for his mid-century activism against racism and anti-Semitism." This is a leftwing lie. Robeson was a Marxist-Leninist who unwaveringly toed the Stalinist line and sought his own country's destruction. Ever ready to do Stalin's bidding, Robeson attacked the formation of NATO, asserting that Negro's would never fight Stalin's Russia. An outraged Sugar Ray Robinson publicly...

    Moment of Truth (For the Anti-American Left)By David HorowitzFrontPageMagazine.com | March 31, 2003 Every movement has its moment of truth. At an "anti-war" teach-in at Columbia last week, Anthropology professor Nicholas De Genova told 3,000 students and faculty, "Peace is not patriotic. Peace is subversive, because peace anticipates a very different world than the one in which we live--a world where the U.S. would have no place."De Genova continued: "The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military. I personally would like to see a million Mogadishus."1 This was a reference to the ambush...
