We have read with amusing the rantings of John Brown and the duplicity of the Duck over a book neither have read. The introduction explains that Communism has escaped the scrutiny of Nazism. The book compares Nazism to Communism not to rehabilitate Nazism but to point out the criminality inherent in Communism. Moreover in a case of projection genuine Communists gloss over their own crimes while attempting to stigmatize Zionism and patriotic Americans. A Commie screaming at the top of his lungs about the alleged crimes of zionism is a comedic spectacle to the educated . One of the reasons Commies need to harp on Israel and every imagined ill in the USA is to cover up their own history as a genocidal movement and that of apologists for a series of crimes . We would be rightly excorsized about real Nazis and Klansmen airbrushing histoty in our Universities. However we have a cottage industry of revolutionary couch potatoes who produce zero genuine scholarship, hire cronies , are exponentially over represented . These goons readily talk of old boys networks in the private sector but feign ignorance at any mention of an Old Bolshevik club in academia.
Crimes against humanity originated as a reaction to the Armenian genocide (pg 6). The author speaks of crimes of Racism at Nurenberg. There certainly were wholesale ethnic deportations and engineered famines against troublesome ethnic groups like Ukranians. Most of us are familiar with Jews in Cattle cars sent to concentration camps. Few of us are aware of Balts, Poles, Chechens, Tartars and others sent in cattle cars to Siberia where many died right away. Thus we have the spectacle of our own John Brown complaining about imaginary Israeli genocide while defending a system that put Moooooslims in cattle cars and sent them mostly to Siberia and Khazakistan to die. The communists also added a series of class enemies merely being a Kulak was a death sentence. Communists had deportation quotas that were fed to them from the top. Thus members of the nobility, middleclass, clergy and military officers found themselves deported only if they were lucky and most often in front of a firing squad. Nor were the Russian examples uniquethey are readily found in China, Cambodia, North Korea and elsewhere but you will have to read the summaries or buy your own copy of the book.
There is also the crime of agressive war and the creation of satalite states. The Nazis did not invade Poland alone. Their ally Joe Stalin invaded Western Poland and the Baltic states and held their own series of small scale massacres eclipsed by the larger Nazi ones. The wars end found much of Europe trading Nazi Hegemony for Communist Totaliarianism and brutality.
Yet in the West there has been a dedicated cadre of flat earth type true believers that are loathsome to most of us and probably comedic to Felis who lived in one of these fantasy Commie Worker paradises. The book explains the secrecythat Communists employed there were not mounds of pictures and much of the crime took place on the fringes of the world. Yet even today John Brown dissmisses Communist genocide as fiction and Ducky complains about shameful use of Gulag victims to discredit Communism. I wonder if the Duck would ever make a similar statement about Nazism and Holocaust victims. 167 plays another game in that he claims Zionist stole the Holocaust to create Israel and plays down 6,000,000 dead Jews while hyping 25,000 dead homosexuals. That number if true might represent 2/3 of the gay population of Berlin and Hamburg and if any group has over emphasised its victimhood in the Holocaust it is likely his own. For the record profesional researchers have struggled to find 1,000. This is not meant to disparage gays but point out the incohernce of an actual communist who approves of Capital punishment for gays in Iran and Saudia Arabia while screaming about Tookie Williams.
The Author points to the cadre of Western Flat earth types attacking early witnesses to Commie crimes. Most of those on the left who complained were branded Trotskyites and treated as apostates. The term Trotskyite is often flung at apostates like David Horowitz, Ronald Radosh and amazingly Stephen Schwartz. There were Trotskyite critics but the term was abused much in the same manner Neocon has become evil Joooish weeeepublican.
Communists have a history of perverting the language. Chinese gulags were called reeducation camps and inmates students. The gulags were described as rehabilitation and trips to the countryside. Soviet and Cuban regimes also placed dissidents in mental hospitals. In the case of Cuba homosexuals were placed there but 167 still will not say a single vowel about Cuban abuses of Gays.
Thus today we have a dedicated Communist like John Brown calling liberal Republicans, liberterians and Conservatives Klansmen. He does this while repeating Norm Finklestein and Chomskyites lines about Israel and both have a history of collaberation with genuine Nazis Holocaust deniers. We have Brown crying about a multi racial democracy as aparthied while ignoring real aparthied next door.
We have the Duck claiming that there is no such thing as Communist Front groups. Thus groups created and led by Communists and including Communists are not Communist
only if one is bird brained. Kagan, Jodi Evens and Medea Benjamin have lengthy histoties as Communist. Joel " Deranged" Kovel and Norman " Holocaust Denier" Finklestein can call themselves Greens but their history and support of Communism and far left activity is known. Chomsky uses the term Anarchist but his record of support of communism is also a fact.
Communist call Cuban trained thugs in Central America freedom fighters while railing against Contra terrorists. Genuine people blowing up public transportation and dance clubs are called freedom fighters and Israel's attempts to kill terorists who hide among civilians is termed terrorist.
Make no mistake when dealing with Communists like John Brown, Weasie, 167,147 and the Duck we are dealing with advocates and enablers of criminality just as evil as Holocaust deniers. In the case of Communists they go through contortions and word games to hide their crimes and bigotry.
Communism fell without a fight so we never had the spectacle of a Nuremberg trial for Communists. Thus the faithful were able to cling to fantasies of idealistic victims of McCartyism and of an independent Communist party that did not engage in espionage and Suberverion in the USA.
Thus we begin with Chapter one of the Black Book of Communism straight ahead. I am still the charter member of the Visine Republican wing of the party it gets the Reds out and sterilizes them as well. In the case of 167 his lifestyle makes sterilization
Mr Beamish in 08, Ducky in Denial, 167 paying to play Abu Gharib naked twister in London, Socrates to improve the world by leaving it and John Brown to undergo a labotomy and improve his social skills.
