Skip to comments.American Liberals: Enemies Within the Gates - (marxists posing as "progressives;" a MUST READ!)
Posted on 06/22/2005 9:28:36 PM PDT by CHARLITE
Like a frenzied pack of howling curs, Americas malignant Left ravenously feasted upon the Abu Ghraib scandal when it broke. The opportunity it provided for them to engage in a wholesale orgy of America bashing was an allure they could not resist. In short order, horrified gasps of moral outrage were heard from leftist mainstream media as their headlines blared, House of Horrors sadism at Abu Ghraib prison! (U.S. News and World Report) and sexual depravity, sadism and violence orchestrated by US soldiers (Chicago Tribune). Soon, pictures of Iraqi prisoners were being gleefully brandished as evidence that American soldiers were, indeed, sexual sadists not baby killers this time, but sexual sadists. By the time their virulent hate-fest finally subsided, they had managed to maliciously smear and hold up to shame America, our president, and our military while simultaneously causing as much trouble for our troops as possible by stirring up Islamic jihadists.
Not content with the initial damage, they are readying themselves to embark on Abu Ghraib Hate-Fest II. The ACLU has demanded the release of more torture pictures, and a compliant federal judge has just granted them their desire.
According to the treacherous Left and their lapdog, the ACLU, their request for more pictures is grounded in concern for the civil liberties and well-being of the prisoners. If the Left possessed even a sliver of integrity perhaps we could accept their stated concerns at face value. The truth, however, is that they are contemptible liars who have been passing themselves off as liberals, progressives, and Democrats since the 1960s. In reality they are a motley collection of Marxist, Stalinist, and Trotskyite communists who have been waging a stealthy Marxist-style revolution in America for the last thirty-five years. That they chose to be communists despite the fact that past socialist schemes have failed horrendously, leading to the genocide of more than one-hundred million people, gives the lie to their phony claims of concern. Any concerns they have are for themselves and for the success of their glorious revolution.
Sounding just as hollow are their claims of moral outrage over the sexual sadism at Abu Ghraifor the Left is the champion of sadomasochism and depravity in America. They are responsible for finding a Constitutional right to obscenity and for the making and distribution of pornography. They created an entire class of constituents out of thin air by decreeing that the type of sexual activity a person engages in no matter how depraved gives them class distinction and special rights. This has led to the open celebration of sadomasochism at leather boy fests, fisting events, and pup and trainer shows throughout America, including Americas capitol.
If the Left was so outraged by sadomasochism and depravity at Abu Ghraib, then why are they teaching it to Americas youth? Why did GLSEN distribute an obscenely pornographic booklet called The Little Black Book Queer in the 21st Century to Brookline, Massachusetts middle and high school students this past April? This booklet is beyond obscene. It opens with, Hey Queer Boys is this a great time to be gay or what? Following this are extremely vile descriptions of various oral and anal sex acts. Then there was this, Watersports_or pee play?which was said to have little risk of STD infection and no risk of HIV. Towards the back of the booklet is a list of Boston area gay bars for the discerning queer boy.
Apparently sadomasochism and depravity are only morally wrong with regards to Americas enemies but not so with regards to American culture and our youth?
The New Left radicals of the 1960s were authoritarian ideologues who not only sneered at the World War II generations morality, but disdained Americas system of government and way of life. They were a dictatorial neo-fascist movement that shouted down opponents, seized office buildings and campuses, spit on our troops and called them baby killers, posed for pictures with the Viet Cong, and conspired with revolutionary Marxists. They committed sedition and acts of treason and got away with it. Furthermore, their acts of betrayal caused untold numbers of American military casualties as well as the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese when our military had to pull out of Viet Nam.
Today, these same communist revolutionaries and their created clones are posing as Congressmen, teachers, professors, judges and the like and are dumbing down and depraving our youth, subverting our Rule of Law, trashing our Constitution, and turning our culture into a cesspool. They are brazenly obstructing the appointment of Constitutionalist judges, enacting communistic hate crime laws against Americans, and using a fully compliant mainstream media to broadcast treasonous statements to our enemies. And just as with the Viet Nam war, Americans are left wondering how many of our troops will die as a result?
The socialist revolution they were unable to pull off back in the 1960s is being fiercely waged in America today. Marxist revolutionaries are determined to destroy America as we have always known her and to build a communist hell-hole instead. They may look and sound like average Americans and some of them may even be your neighbors but they are not our friends. They are Americas treacherous enemy within the gates.

RED STAR OVER HOLLYWOOD: THE FILM COLONY'S LONG ROMANCE WITH THE LEFT
By Ronald Radosh and Allis Radosh
Encounter, $25.95, 309 pages
REVIEWED BY T. L. PONNICK
Barbra Streisand. Jane Fonda. Susan Sarandon. Tim Robbins. Sean Penn. Warren Beatty. Richard Dreyfuss. Fed on a steady diet of tabloid gossip, countless movie-mad Americans regard megastars like these as Hollywood royalty, bigger than life and nearly as rich as Bill Gates. But these Tinseltown titans have something else in common besides their whopping bank accounts and lavish lifestyles. They're shameless apologists for and patrons of America's radical left, wealthy political activists indulging in a chic and hypocritical tradition stretching back in time to the advent of talking pictures.
Granted La-La Land's obsession with revolutionary socialism is not exactly news these days. But in "Red Star Over Hollywood," the husband-and-wife team of Ronald and Allis Radosh exhaustively documents the infiltration and subversion of America's entertainment capital by determined Stalinist apparatchiks as far back as the 1930s. The apparatchik goal? To undermine American politics, culture, and morals as a prelude to the inevitable communist revolution. "Red Star" supplies the backstory lurking behind the contemporary film industry's seemingly inexplicable contempt for America's democratic traditions.
A former "red diaper" baby himself, Mr. Radosh was drummed out of the left in the 1980s after coauthoring "The Rosenberg File," a fact packed volume that proved conclusively the overwhelming guilt of these pro-Soviet spies. Defying his antagonists, Mr. Radosh boldly turned to the right a conversion experience he described in painful detail in his autobiographical 2001 book "Commies: A Journey Through the Old Left, the New Left and the Leftover Left."
In "Red Star," the coauthors describe in detail how the Soviet Comintern infiltrated key operatives into America's fast-growing and popular film industry, recruiting new party members and fellow travelers from the ranks of Hollywood's impressionable film writers and easily hoodwinked stars. Their objectives were to dupe high profile Hollywood figures into raising funds for the Communist Party, to take control of Hollywood union activities, and to work with trusted screenwriters to slip communist propaganda into movie plotlines most notably the film "Mission to Moscow," a blatant whitewash of Joseph Stalin's murderous purge trials.
One of the party's early Hollywood converts was the legendary Budd Schulberg, extensively interviewed by the Radoshes for the present volume. An idealistic young screenwriter in the 1930s, Mr. Schulberg was once, like Mr. Radosh, an enthusiastic communist in his younger days. But an eye-opening visit to the Soviet Union and his later shabby treatment by the party which tried to force him to withdraw his most famous novel, "What Makes Sammy Run?" caused Mr. Schulberg to turn against the communists rather than knuckle under to their crude attempts at censorship.
To a great extent, the party's subversive efforts in America were made easier by the Kremlin ordered shift to a "Popular Front" approach in 1935. Baffled by the failure of the American communists to stir up violent revolution even as the Great Depression worsened, the Soviets were forced to face the fact that democracy and respect for its institutions were more deeply ingrained in the American psyche than Stalin had imagined. In response, American communists were ordered to ease off on violent confrontation and adopt the subtler tactic of cozying up to trade unionists and New Dealers in Washington. By burrowing into key institutions while seeming to endorse them as anti-fascist allies, the party gained a measure some of respect in liberal circles even as it plotted a slow strangulation of American-style capitalism.
Ever alert to the propaganda potential of the arts, the party extended its Popular Front reach to American writers, musicians, and other artists, encouraging them to support the communist message in their work. Occasionally, the communists overplayed their collective hand. Their gradual transformation of the WPA-supported Federal Theatre Project into a party propaganda machine became so obvious that an outraged U. S. Congress promptly shut it down. Yet even after this setback and the explosion of outrage over the notorious Hitler-Stalin pact which gave liberals in Hollywood and Washington reason to reconsider their ties to the left the party's influence on the arts persisted.
"Red Star's" primary focus, however, is on the shallow, glitzy world of Hollywood, where support for the hard left was, then as now, as much social fashion as it was a political cause. The authors have drawn upon extensive material from the papers of screenwriters like Dalton Trumbo, Albert Maltz, Ring Lardner, Jr., and others to portray a film industry run by old-school tycoons but significantly populated by radical writers, actors, and directors bent on undermining authority and sneaking propaganda into as many films as possible. The authors pay particular attention to the notorious film "Mission to Moscow," a shameless apologia for Stalin's murderous purge trials.
The Radoshes also expose the shallow mythology behind the deification of the "Hollywood 10" one director and nine screenwriters, including Trumbo, Maltz, and Lardner whose party-dictated defiance of the U. S. House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) resulted in jail terms and eventual blacklisting by the movie studios. Persistently portrayed by the media as innocent, patriotic martyrs, they were, in fact, anything but although some eventually had second thoughts about their subversive activities.
The infiltration and dominance of artistic communities by the radical left is a vast and ongoing saga whose final chapter has yet to be written. In "Red Star," the Radoshes supply a missing link, investigating the key, intersecting orbits of Hollywood's Communist Party hacks, their friends, enemies and fellow travelers. Additionally, the book's concluding chapter helps connect the dots to contemporary Hollywood's reflexive Marxist revisionism, exemplified by stars like Tim Robbins and fringe players like documentary propagandist Michael Moore, who promote themselves as patriots while undermining American support for the War on Terror.
Factual and dispassionate, "Red Star" will be read eagerly by those in search of the truth behind one of America's most misunderstood political epochs. But expect the book to be denounced or ignored by everyone else, particularly in the mainstream media.
Example? "Ah come on man, Turbin apologized, what more do you want."
They continue to commit
ted sedition and acts of treason and g oet away with it. Furthermore, their acts of betrayal caused untold numbers of American military casualties...
And the beat goes on.............
Brilliant! And perfectly right!
"If the end is important enough, the means by which it is attained are unimportant" -- V.I. Lenin
BUMP TO THE TOP
Or better yet, how about Aaron Brown sneering, "You would think now this story would go away, and it probably will in your lifetime."
The dishonestly in the mainstream media is a huge part of our problem.
HELLO????? Is there anybody out there????
Let's do it this way:
Democratic Socialists of America (70+ members in Congress)
Belong to the Socialist Internationale (Tony Blair, President)
They ALL belong to the Communist Party...GOT IT?
Don't tell me Tony Blair is our "FRIEND".
The Left is out to destroy America from within!
Savege was right about them. Liberalism is a mental disorder and they are the enemy within.
Liberals are patriotic -- just like Alger Hiss.
Okay..I have heard of the DSA, and even reacll way back when, when the list of embers was pulled from their webpage (if I'm thinking of the same org)..But Tony Blair? Can ya source that?
CNN - right? I do not/will not watch the lamestream media!
The dishonestly in the mainstream media is a huge part of our problem.
Agreed ... but keep your eye on the commies in Congress. They are the other huge part of our problem.
For starters if we quit being so PC and calling the leftists, progressives, marxists, liberals, and start calling them what they are - communists it might help.
But then again, we would be called McCarthyites. Which IMO isn't so bad considering he was right.
Hey GLSEN, why does this book address only male queers? What happened to inclusiveness? What happened to diversity? How come there's not a "Little Black Book" for budding lesbos?
Link to the "Little Black Book:"
CAUTION: extremely gross and disgusting.
That's the most "in your face" article I've ever seen.
The liberals are not going to like it one bit.
Lindy Kimball is a gutsy gal!! HooRah!
Excellent post charlite.
Oh I love reading a piece that I wish I could have written as well. So true, these people are Marxists, and determined to bring this country down. I am astounded that Joe Public can't see this!
