    So Was Harvey Swinestein A Red Rat Like Trumbo? 

    We have taken notice of ‘celebrity’ sex-pests in the past..

    Slimy Soros Declares Admiration For Shamed Sex-Pest! 

    …like Al Franken, but left it to larger media outlets to follow Harvey Weinschwein’s fate.

    However, today’s news leads me to comment further!



    Convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein wallowed in self-pity at his sentencing, comparing the #MeToo movement to the communist-era blacklisting hysteria….Weinstein likened his trial to the mid-century communist scare that led to the blacklisting of stars and politicians.

    Weinschwein thus hopes, undoubtedly in vain, to enlist the sympathy of the many powerful leftists who are still in denial about the very real communist threat post-WW2.

    “I’m worried there is a repeat of the blacklist there was in the 1950s, when lots of men like myself, Dalton Trumbo, one of the great examples, did not work, went to jail because people thought they were communists,” he went on.

    But his pathetic whine reveals what I certainly didn’t know, that he, like so many other Hollywood undesirables, was personally linked to the Un-American elements whom brave people like Senator Joe McCarthy and HUAC sought to expose.

    Senator Joe


    America’s Enemies Within – Then and Now! 

    …when it was revealed his Hollywood fans were producing an idolatrous movie to honour the dirty red slug.


    Trumbo supported Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and North Korea’s Kim Il-Sung. He condemned Martin Luther King, Jr., for not being a true revolutionary. Yet, he is depicted in the film as just a family-friendly socialist and defender of the First Amendment in the film…




    Q: In what way does the movie hide or gloss over Trumbo’s Red record?

    A: All of his heavy-duty propaganda and activities on behalf of the Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin and the Communist Party are omitted. So is his vigorous support of Lenin, Adolph Hitler (during the Hitler-Stalin pact) and North Korea’s Kim Il-sung after his aggressive attack against South Korea in 1950. Even his membership in the American CP, which he eventually bragged about, is ignored….

    The villains in the movie, incidentally, are not the party members who worked covertly—and relentlessly—to turn Hollywood over to Moscow but the anti-Communist community who fought the Red conspiracy in the film industry—and won, at least for a time. Columnist Hedda Hopper, John Wayne, labor leader Roy Brewer, the House Un-American Activities Committee, the Motion Picture Alliance and other opponents of the Communists come in for a severe beating.

    Q: You say he was a “Stalinist” and a member of the Communist Party, facts that you argue are fundamentally ignored by the movie. But how do we know he was a party member?

    A: There is no question about his CP membership. In those famous 1947 hearings, the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) submitted material proving beyond a doubt that he was a party member, though Trumbo and nine other screenwriters and directors refused to respond to questions about party membership..

    .communism tyranny

    ….Trumbo finally admitted to his biographer, Bruce Cook, that he joined the party in 1943, and that “I might as well have been a Communist ten years earlier. But I’ve never regretted it. As a matter of fact, it’s possible to say I would have regretted not having done it…” Hollywood’s Despicable Hero Dalton Trumbo

    The red rat went to jail all too briefly, for his arrogant refusal to come clean in the hearings.

    But that was much less than he deserved.

    As for Schweinstein, I’d say he has got what he deserved.

    A pity Trumbo didn’t.

      A lot of Americans knew Weinstein was far-left, so you are not exactly breaking news with this..
      It is important though, to make as many people as possible aware, so good if you wake up your small but ( as far as I can see) worldwide audience to his self-identification as an enthusiast for Trumbo’s communist activity.

    BBC ‘Error?’ The Truth About McCarthy’s Brave Crusade Will Out! 




    Wow, another bright sunny Jakarta Sunday, presenting me with a dilemma – bacon and eggs for breakfast, or get going, enjoy the gorgeous weather, and have that most perfect of morning meals for brunch, when I get back!

    But first, a quick review of a significant news item from last week!


    Joseph_McCarthy Senator Joe


    …in 1953 he was called before the House Un-American Activities Committee – part of the McCarthy hearings into communism in America.  http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-34012395

    Pity the BBC’s scribbler is ignorant, of even the most basic facts about the USA’s Constitution. The House of Representatives and the US Senate are no more identical than the Commons and the Lords, to use a comparison easily understood by British readers.

    • So HUAC was not part, nor could be part, of Senator Joe McCarthy’s heroic onslaught against Communist subversion, He ran the Senate Internal Security Sub-Committee, if I’m not mistaken, and while both bodies did valuable work, they were quite separate.

    The BBC extract does, however, confirm that their respective endeavours were entirely legitimate. The phrase ‘Fifth Amendment Communist’ was applied to undesirables who abused the constitution to hide their enemy allegiance.

    • Cedric Belfrage, now conclusively exposed as a Soviet spy…
    • Traitor Belfrage -he should have been executed
    • …was one of many who were cornered by patriot investigation and refused to confess to their treason.
    • I’ve written before…

      America’s Enemies Within – Then and Now! 

       … about how –

    • – those Communist swine hid behind the Fifth Amendment when asked if they were or had been members of the CPUSA. That plea was as clear as could be. Any decent citizen would have replied with an indignant NEVER!

      Or, if they had previously been guilty of such treasonable allegiance and had since seen the light, they’d not only have owned up but volunteered to help all investigations into the Fifth Column  into whose service that Fifth Amendment had been pressed.

      When patriotic citizens responded to the scum by ostracism or dismissal from jobs they didn’t deserve, what happened?The Reds were portrayed as victims, while in many a (if not every) case, the honourable men and women who lifted the stones off the Communist conspiracy were vilified and persecuted.

    • oooooooooooooooooooo
    • communism tyranny
    • ooooooooooooooooooo

    Public loathing was a very modest price to pay, compared to what they merited.

      I hope you enjoyed your bacon and eggs as much as I enjoyed reading this.

      All those Communists in the 1950s are back, those who are still alive, and boosted by a new generation, the Hanoi Janes and Robert REDford, all so happy to run dwn our country.
      At least if they had showed some integrity and admitted they were working for America’s enemies, at least they might have earned a little respect, but no, they were in the wrong but refused to admit it, fifth amendment comminists to a man.
      McCarthy was a great man, and there should be statues to him everywhere, and a holiday in his name, same as MLK has.
      A real knight valiant for freedom.
