“Howard Fast was devoted to communism but eventually realized that it needed to be exposed so that its tenets would wither and die.” Eileen F. Toplansky
“How do we wake up a generation that cannot even identify New York and Ohio on a U.S. map?” Ibid
“Students today are relentlessly drilled with a progressive catechism of guilt over America’s long-admitted shortcomings and history.” Ibid
“Yet, it is a cold, hard and disturbing fact that, during the 20thcentury, socialist regimes—also called ‘communist’ and ‘Marxist’ and ‘People’s Republic’ regimes—have been responsible for the intentional or negligent murder of more than 100 million people.” Ibid
Editor’s Note: R. J. Rummel in Death By Government (1994) places the figure at 169,198,000. He says, “At the extremes of Power, totalitarian communist governments slaughter their people by the tens of millions, in contrast many democracies can barely bring themselves to execute even serial murderers.” P.2
“In total, during the first eighty-eight years of this century, almost 170 million men, women, and children have been shot, beaten, tortured, knifed, burned, starved, frozen, crushed, or worked to death, buried alive, drowned, hung, bombed, or killed in any other of the myriad ways governments have inflicted death on unarmed, helpless citizens and foreigners. The dead could conceivably be nearly 360 million people. It is as though our species has been devastated by a modern Black Plague. And indeed it has, but a plague of Power, not germs.” P.9
Sixty-two years ago, author and ex-communist Howard Fast wrote that he had “only one important task in front of [him] to define this thing, to explain it, to picture this unholy god in his own frightful nakedness; so that if there is another generation in [his] land that must face the agony of [his] generation, they will never see this avenue as a road to any future that man should face without loathing.” His 1957 book titled The Naked God: The Writer and the Communist Party was Fast’s coming “to grips with the “hollow, rigid, ‘political’ incantations of the movement’s cultural high priests.” It is a book that “explains, in terms of specific instances, the whys and wherefores of total commitment to a false ideal.”
This unholy god was communism, and it is with great alarm and fear that we must, yet again, teach Americans of the evil inherent in socialism which is always the first step to communism. With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hypnotizing impressionable and miseducated millennials we are headed toward a tattered future.
