Commies have a singularity of deception that many liberals ignore. They screamed for years that Alger Hiss and the Rosenbergs were innocent. The fact that all the evidence went the other way did not matter. The Commie excuses were a mix of conspiracy, conjecture and wishful thinking. While the far left rails about anti Communism they ignore the history of genuine treason . When one corners them with the facts "well aiding Communism shouldn't have been a crime anyway".
Venona and the KGB files establish what the rest of us have known for years. The Communist Party was subsidized by Moscow and its members commited extensive espionage in the USA. Yet, despite all that we know about what Communist did in the USA there are those who still cry about witch hunts. Witches were never real and did not kill 100,000,000.
Then there are those who rail about theology but see no problem with Grouchomarxism in the classroom. Communism was and always will be more of a religion with its idiotic true believers and imaginary utopia that never materializes. Even today the NYC contingent is in love with the Maoist Nepalese rebels who use child soldiers. The ultimate form of child abuse is the use of child soldiers. However, the only time one reads about child abuse is when a clergyman is the culprit or an attractive woman has a mental defect.
The question today is why are Communists, Greens and Anarchists vastly over represented in higher education ? These same wonks rail about theocracy while espousing their own brand of religion daily. The same crowd often rails about imaginary Jewish conspiracies and ignores its own history of treason.
There are some critics of this blog who claim that we descibe too many people like Duncy as Communists. Communists try to hide their true nature but as one who has battled them for well over twenty years I know the playbook. In fact I can parrot it better then the genuine article. Communism is more of a cult and apostates like David Horowitz and Ronald Radosh are given special scorn. The clueless commies assume I had once been one of them and left the faith. I have always been and will forever be an anticommunist. I am still a social liberal but there is no room for racial supremacy, Commies, Greens and Anarchist. They are mere comic props in the world of rational political thought.
Beamish in 08, Ducky to Gitmo and 167 to the woodshed for a metaphorical beating.
