    BBC Goes Back 60 Years To Smear ‘Populist’ Patriots! 


    As Europe and America bear witness to populist politics, Professor Papanek says he would not discount the possibility that a McCarthy could one day return.

    A completely irrelevant – and illogical – conclusion to a weird wander back through time, indeed.

    Yet if you read the BBC website article, you’ll see how morally skewed the whole thing is, from the gloating description of how a bare-faced Communist got off the hook on a legal technicality…

    communism tyranny

    ( there was no doubt of the S.O.B’s guilt. The swine even boasted later that he was ‘proud’ to be part of the hypocritical totalitarian marxist movement!)

    His name was Leon Kamin…

    ..

    Self-confessed Communist Leon Kamin – “I was proud of it,” he said.

    Senator Joe McCarthy was an American hero who, contrary to the trash-talk masquerading as history pumped out by Comsymps ever since, DID expose red infiltration of United States government and military institutions.

    As did the House Un-American Activities Committee, on which, of course, McCarthy did not serve. He was in the Senate, not the House.

    However, that is a detail. The sort of louche liberals and mincing marxists who infest the BBC probably don’t care about details. This isn’t the first time the tax-funded UK state broadcaster has failed to do the hero justice.

    That Kamin creep got away with his communism because the people in the court cheered when Senator McCarthy walked in. The judge ruled this prejudiced the hearing.

    But most of the traitors who escaped retribution simply invoked the Fifth Amendment excuse, declaring they could not be forced to tell the truth about their Communist collaboration.

    As I’ve said before, the phrase ‘Fifth Amendment Communist’ was applied to undesirables who abused the constitution to hide their enemy allegiance.

    • America’s Enemies Within – Then and Now! 

    • The whole tone of the BBC piece, from start to finish, is almost sycophantic, it’s so obviously on the side of the red vermin – its message seems to be that while some non-communists were wrongly accused, our sympathy should extend beyond them, to the scum who were legitimately exposed and dealt with.

    • But that’s what we expect from the BBC.

    • .

    • What we didn’t expect, but should have, is the absurd attempt to link the Fifties with the battle today, with that crack-pot quote used by the BBC to round off their inexplicably(?) timed article.

    • While Brits and other brave nations across Europe are fighting

      in the MEP elections that occur this very week to break the EUSSR yoke that subverts their sovereignty …

    • …it seems the mandarins in Broadcasting House are clutching at any straws from any source, or any era, to defame populist patriots.

      You do well to note that key part of the Left’s distortion of the anti-communist campaign in the 1950s.
      Joe McCarthy and HUAC did uncover a lot of CPUSA traitors and the Fifth Amendment reds were as guilty as sin.
      A few people were wrongly accused, inevitably.
      However, the fellow-travellers in politics and the media were and are not content to redress those cases of injustice.
      They also seek sympathy for those proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to have been active, committed Communists. These were effectively enemy agents, but in most cases got off pretty lightly, only losing jobs and not executed for treason or even spending serious time in prison for their disloyalty to their country.

    America’s Enemies Within – Then and Now! 


    Just been watching Marathon Man, quite a good old movie, but I’d forgotten how the producers used it to hammer home the character assassination of the late Senator Joe McCarthy. Some ‘history professor’ tells a class that Tail-Gunner Joe ran a ‘tyrannical purge’ in the 1950s.

    oooooooooooooooooooooo

    hogwashmeterred

    What utter hogwash, and of course not one of his students knew enough to refute the smear. Not that any such riposte would have been permitted in the film script.

    But the episode made me think about terminology.

    These days, people like Snowden and the Wikileaks creep are ubiquitously described as ‘whistle-blowers’  – for some reason, revealing top secret documents etc., some of which embarrass notables but many of which endanger Western security, is regarded as almost heroic.

    In contrast, back when I was a wee lad in that golden age known as The Fifties, patriots in America who stood up and told the truth about treason were smeared as ‘informers.’

    Elia Kazan: biggest rat of the pack | Film | The Guardian

    His offence?

    He’d exposed the communist scum in Hollywood, a hero, unlike vermin like Dalton Trumbo, who hid behind legal technicalities to avoid answering the simple question – was he a Communist. The vermins’ ideological heirs  in 2007 even turned out to stage a Comsymp demo, and debate raged.

     

         Joan Scott, a writer who was blacklisted along with her husband,
    Adrian Scott, one of the Hollywood 10, said: "Like Judas, informers are
    never forgiven. I had to go into hiding to avoid a subpoena. Being
    blacklisted still affects me." 
    
         Kazan defenders were equally vociferous in support of the director. 
    "Mr. Kazan was a moral hero," said Scott McConnell, a leader of the Ad Hoc
    Committee for Naming Facts, organized by the Ayn Rand Institute.  "He was
    a brave and courageous man, and the people who should apologize are the
    Communists who wanted him to stay quiet about what he had witnessed." 
    Kazan protest

     

    Note that Scott bint- ‘hiding,‘ not to escape an angry mob, though she deserved it (and still does) but to avoid a subpoena – having to answer a straightfoward question, was she involved in an organisation serving Stalin! She calls Kazan a Judas, but she and her traitor comrades in The Party were the Judases, selling out America.

    Same goes for Dalton Trumbo – a lot of the truth about that slimy Red has been censored from the mainstream media but Conservapedia does the job .

    Trumbo was a member of the Communist Party of the USA (CPUSA) throughout the 1940s and ’50s. When fellow Communist screenwriter Albert Maltz published a defense of artistic freedom, arguing that literature should not be judged solely on the politics of its author, Trumbo participated in a Party inquisition, browbeating Maltz for his heresy until he publicly recanted.

    oooooooooooooooooooo

    A villainous enemy of the USA

    =====

    According to University of Maryland Professor Art Eckstein, Maltz, who also later was brought before HUAC (and went to jail for refusing to testify), told historian Gerda Lerner “that his appearance before HUAC in 1947 was simply nothing compared to the real and psychologically-destructive trauma of his criticism/self-criticism sessions before the Communist Party in 1946.” Eckstein continues:

    Dalton Trumbo was also part of the savage Communist Party inquisition against the director Robert Rossen in 1949, because of Rossen’s film, “All the King’s Men.” Party Headquarters in New York thought that his film was too much an attack on one-man rule–i.e., Stalin. The confrontation with his Hollywood inquisitors over the nature of his art drove Rossen right out of the CPUSA (“Take the Party and shove it!”).

     

    communism tyranny

     

    Long before the Blacklist, there was Hollywood’s Communist “Redlist.” In The Worker, Trumbo openly boasted that the comrades had prevented the production of Hollywood films based on books banned by Stalin, including classics such as Arthur Koestler’s Darkness at Noon and Victor Kravchenko’s I Chose Freedom.

     

     Ages ago I posted on Diana West’s book, and said I must get round to reading it. Now I’ve had these days of no particular place to go – so I’ve been turning this arguable misfortune to my advantage and catching up on books, that being one among several!

    More Questions Than Answers? – Diana West’s “American Betrayal” 

     american betrayal   Ms. West takes us over some familiar ground – the rampant red subversion in the USA before and after WW2, and reminds us how so many of 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.

     

    ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

     

     

    oooooooooo

    And it goes on to this day. Marxist malignants are honoured, while the memory of heroes like Senator Joe McCarthy are relentlessly trampled.

    oooooooooooo

    There’s a perfectly good review here  http://pjmedia.com/blog/american-subversion  so I’m not going to write another.
