COMMUNIST TYRANNY IN AMERICA? WHAT WE MUST KNOW
International News Analysis
October 26, 2009
There is the very real danger that a Communist tyranny could be coming to America.
The key elements already are beginning to come into place: an attempt to concentrate
power in the hands of the central government, the ongoing attack on the private
sector, and the use of intimidation against all important media opposition. This
same process occurred in Venezuela in 1999 after the election of Hugo Chavez.
Today, Chavez is a virtual Marxist dictator.
While the United States certainly is not in the same position as Venezuela when Chavez was elected, all freedom
loving Americans should be very wary of how mid-term elections in 2010 will be
conducted, or if some "emergency" delays or prevents the midterm vote. Communists and "internationalists" -- a new name for the same ideology --
are elitists. They view
themselves as the bearers of truth and righteousness, and, as a result, are intolerant
of any opposition from Fox News to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
to the enduring success of any elected Communist government is the certainty that
the opposition will never again gain power.
The Marxist ruler of Ecuador
(and Chavez clone), Rafael Correa, has recently stated his Communist government
would never relinquish power. Chavez himself has made similar statements, as has
another Chavez clone, Evo Morales of Bolivia.
Chavez, who initiated the latest Communist drive in Latin America, is much admired among many in the Obama
administration, especially by Bill Ayers who helped launch Obama's political career.
There is the very real danger that Chavez's admirers may attempt to carry over
not only the ideology but also the authoritarian lessons from Venezuela to the
The latest in a series of attacks on private property and
freedom of speech is being mounted against the Internet. The Obama administration's
push for "network neutrality" is a thinly veiled attempt by the federal government
to push out private investment and gain complete control of the last unregulated
source of information. Leading the push to destroy the Internet as we know it
is Susan Crawford, the so-called Internet Czar, who is an admirer of Mao Zedong.
Internet Freedom Coalition is leading the fight against this threat.
The presence of Communists or Communist sympathizers in the Obama administration is by now
well known. There is, however, little public outcry. Imagine if instead of Communist,
the term Nazi was applied, or, instead of Mao, the name Adolf Hitler was used.
The left has adroitly dulled our reaction to the word Communist and what it means
to human life. It is a lesson we must learn from others very quickly, or we ourselves
will learn about the terror, imprisonment, and death which are essential ingredients
of the Communist system.
An estimated one hundred million people died from
the time of the 1917 Bolshevik revolution in Russia to the collapse of the Soviet
Union in 1991.
And they are still dying. In prisons in Cuba, at the hands
of pro-government gangs in Venezuela, in ambushes and bombings unleashed by Marxist
guerrillas across Latin America (including Mexico) as well as in the Philippines
Death is essential to Communist rule. Vladimir Lenin, the founder
of the Bolshevik revolution, knew it and he initiated a reign of terror. In the
first few months following the Communist seizure of power in Russia, Lenin killed
more political enemies that did the Czars in the previous 100 years.
Lenin established a secret police to protect his revolution, the All-Russian
Extraordinary Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage, best known
by its Russian abbreviation, Cheka. Lenin put in charge of this newly founded
organization Felix Dzerzhinsky, a committed Communist revolutionary who called
for "hard men without pity" to fill the ranks of the Cheka.
Every Communist revolution since 1917 has brought forth other "men [and women] without pity."
From China to Cuba, and now to Venezuela and other nations in Latin America and
beyond, the pitiless are again on the march, but this time some of the Communist
revolutionaries are in American government.
In a sense this has happened before. During the Roosevelt administration, Soviet agents held high positions
in the government. Alger Hiss was a key adviser to Roosevelt and the first General
Secretary of the United Nations at its founding in 1945. So was Harry Dexter White
who guided the founding of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank,
as was Lauchlin Currie was a key figure in misdirecting our policy in China before
Mao's defeat of Nationalist leader Chiang Kai-Shek.
While Hiss, White, Currie,
and others were Soviet agents, they did not directly attack the freedoms of U.S.
citizens as is being done today.
Americans at all levels of society must realize what being a Communist really means, both now and historically.
of the history of Communism is dangerous to those who hope to keep their God-given
freedom, while it is shameful to neglect the memory of the millions who died because
of this evil ideology.
There are efforts to change this situation. Dr. Lee Edwards, chairman of The
Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation has told International News Analysis
Today that his group is working with U.S. school teachers to provide a deeper
understanding of the damage done to humanity by Communist tyranny. Edwards stated
that teachers are open to his organization's efforts.
There is hope, but we as a people must be alert, informed, and act reasonably upon the facts as they
are discovered - no matter where they lead.

The author reveals the origins and direction of the
terror alliance between militant Islam, resurgent neo-communist nations and revolutionary
groups. This work focuses on questions the media dare not ask, including: Who
controls Russia? Did the Cold War really end? Is it possible to negotiate with
radical Islam? How does radical Islam work with neo-communist nations and rebel
groups? What does history teach us? Westerman's book is essential reading
for these times.
