Many people think that I am tough on Comunists for their history. This defense of Communist treason sums it up best. Prof Schrecker (noted Communist appologist)"it is important to realize that as Communists these people did not conform to traditional forms of patriotism; they were internationalists whose political allegiances transcended national boundaries. They thought they were building a better world for the masses" not betraying their country."
Of course you could turn to the wacky world of Joel Koevell. Anticommunism is a form of mental illness, anti-semitism or racism. However antizionism is not antisemitism according to the illucid Koevell. His defenders swear he isn't a Communist. He merely defends Comunism at every opportunity while pretending to be a green. He even attempts to steal the history of Native Americans. The insane Koevel claims Native Americans were persecuted becaused they lived Communaly. This must come as news to Native Americans who enjoyed trade, had slaves and sometimes practiced human sacrafice. Native Americans are a series of diverse cultures with positive and negative attributes. The attempted theft of their history by Koevel and the fake Ward Churchill is quite amusing given recent massacres by Sandanistas. While the Sandanistas were massacring Indians Chomsky, Ed ASSner and company were singing their praises.
Communist are apologists for a brutal form of Totalitarianism. Each and every application has yeilded death and misery. There is no rationale for a rope a dope rehabilitation via Trotsky, Chavez or Alfed E Neuman.
Communists have knowingly lied about espionage and the source of funding of the Communist party. I can produce mountains of books by Commies defending the Rosenbergs, Hiss and so forth as well as scores calling Bentley, Chambers and Radosh liars. The verdict of history is in and Communists were guilty of all the crimes their critics charged and more.
The defenders of Communism are mentally ill members of a deranged cult fed by nostalgia for a lost cause. Nazism, the Confederacy and the French Revolution all had its defenders of similar bad ideas who airbrushed history. The lofty motives bit is the most insane part yet. We shall liberate the masses by starving them to death. Death must be an alternative form of liberation. We shall free the people by creating gulags, armies of Finks, Police states, censorship of free speech, abusing mental health facilities and fostering a series of Civil wars and terrorism.
The lofty motives bit is hot air. Behind every commie is an arrogant elitist. The arrogance is the driving force behind massacres as the elite must think for the unwashed masses. Communist feel that they alone as possesors of the divine truth have the right to play God. However, man is not God and the results and bodies speak for themselves.
