Politically Correct Butchers of the 20th Century

Sunday, 23 September 2001 12:00 AM

One concern: political correctness. Bush's rousing call to arms, which literally made us stand up and cheer, was tempered with a disturbing political insight. He listed the 20th century's top 3 mass murderers as follows: Nazism, fascism and totalitarianism.

To our dismay, "the speech of the century," this striking shot across the bow of terrorism, lays the charge of homicide on those "ideologies" which Americans have been trained to believe are right-wing, thus failing to lay a blow at the savage, sordid leftist ideology whose record for mass murder, whose hatred of American values, and whose love of and support for terrorism dwarfs and fuels all others. We speak of Communism and Communists, of Russia, China, Cuba and their sort. Bush didn't.

So, let's set the record straight.

How big an edge?

Among the mass liquidators from the Communist camp, the top three alone may have claimed as many as 169 million lives.

How could Communism be overlooked?

The answer seems clear. The Bush administration is sending out feelers relative to the enlistment of Russia, and perhaps China, as an "ally" in "the world's" war against terrorism – and the establishment press is drumming up support.

Suddenly, a national disaster has become a golden opportunity to forge a "tighter" alliance with Russia, featuring joint military action in Afghanistan, and audaciously: aid, technology and international support for Russian suppression of Chechnya and, perhaps, Georgia – which dares to aid Chechen refugees. If all goes according to plan, we may see the U.S. helping reunite the old Soviet Union in the name of fighting terrorism.

We should be outraged by the suggestion. Have we forgotten the fairly recent history of Russian terrorist atrocities in Afghanistan? If so, here's a reminder.

1. Robert James Bidinotto reported, in the newsletter On Principle, December 10, 1984, on Soviet "gifts" to Afghan children:

"They look like toys.

"They lie on the ground where they are scattered by the helicopters: colorfully painted pens, birds, butterflies, wagons [dolls, toy trucks and watches]. And when the children touch the toys, they explode. The explosions are not powerful enough to kill in most cases – just powerful enough to maim. ..."

Those who live, wrote John Barron in Reader's Digest, have their hands and feet blown away.

2. And who made the toys? Barron interviewed one child who was trained at age 9 by Russian Communists to make and temptingly place the toys in the fields, in order to kill his friends. Thousands of other children were sent to Soviet re-education camps, so as to come back to Afghanistan as trained revolutionaries.

3. Or how about starvation and migration terrorism? An article entitled "Changes in Soviet Strategy" in the Free Afghanistan Report, September 1985, notes: "Soviet destruction of the food system and the very ecology and interdiction of supply caravans from Pakistan contribute to "migratory genocide" – the flight of refugees to neighboring countries, pursued, strafed and bombed all the way by gunships and MiGs. ..."

Similarly today, Russia continues to oppose U.N. relief efforts for Chechen refugees – that's 450,000 men, women and children modern Russia ruthlessly drove from their homes.

4. One 1986 report on Afghanistan read: "In three small villages near Qandahar, last year, the Soviets killed close to 350 women and children in retaliation for a Mujahidin attack in the vicinity. After slitting the throats of children, disemboweling pregnant women, raping, shooting and mutilating others, the Russians poured a substance on the bodies which caused instant decomposition."

Are we gullible enough to believe that the most bloodthirsty, power- hungry regime in history, the Soviet Union and its allies, simply lay down, played dead, and converted to capitalism and Christianity?

In "New Lies for Old," Anatoliy Golitsyn, an ex-KGB agent who specialized in the counterintelligence field, forecast "the introduction of false liberalization in Eastern Europe and, probably, in the Soviet Union." He predicted "[the] demolition of the Berlin Wall might even be contemplated" – five years before the Wall came down. According to Golitsyn, the plan was in the works, and known to all Communist countries, as long ago as 1958.

Even Gorbachev admitted the true nature of the "change" in his work "Perestroika" (restructuring):

I stress once again: Perestroika is not some kind of illumination or revelation [it was old hat]. To restructure our life means to understand the objective necessity for renovation and acceleration. ... The essence of Perestroika lies in the fact that it unites socialism with democracy (self-criticism/feedback) and revives the Leninist concept of socialist construction both in theory and practice.

Gorbachev's interest simply was to return to the more flexible Leninist agenda in order to promote communist efficiency, modernize the Russian military, improve Russia's infrastructure, push for international disarmament, strengthen pre-existing socialist alliances, and work toward the establishment of an international socialist order under the United Nations.

The results? Thanks to the West's media-induced perception of the "fall" of Communism, a far greater penetration of Western intelligence and a far wider, far more dangerous spread of its KGB-laden international criminal network (the Russian Mafia) has occurred. No significant country on the globe is without their influence. And the American aid continues to flow ...

Finally, Gorbachev's insistence that Russia turn back the clock to Lenin is telling, regarding the issue at hand. Lenin was a terrorist. Read it for yourself. Said Lenin:

"The scientific concept of dictatorship means nothing else but this – power without limit, resting directly upon force, restrained by no laws, absolutely unrestrained by rules."

And again:

"Contempt for death must spread among the masses, and thus shall ensure victory. The ruthless extermination of the enemy will be their task."

In 1956, Krushchev, before the 20th Party Congress, added:

"The questioning of Stalin's terror, in turn, may lead to the questioning of terror in general. But Bolshevism believes in the use of terror. Lenin held that no one was worthy of the name Communist who did not believe in terror. ..."

Even Marx taught it:

"Wherever the oppressors [capitalist/Christian/middle class] resist, they must be slaughtered."

Bottom line: Communism is nothing more, nothing less than mass murder and terror.

The January 13, 1998, Moscow Times reported Josef Stalin's grandson had been appointed the head of Georgia's 50,000-member Stalin Society. And what is his agenda? To overthrow the "bourgeois," liquidate "enemies of the people" and "capitalist blood-suckers," restore power to the "working people," and reconstitute the Soviet Union "within 1985 borders."

Ready to join hands with the Russians in their holy cause? We aren't.
