The ‘Untold’ False History That the Left Tells All the Time


Oliver Stone’s “The Untold History of the United States” is one of those untold histories that are told over and over again by the left. But no matter how often the left retells the same stories, it makes sure to add an “untold” in there, not because their revisionism of history was previously untold, but because the idea that a secret history is being uncovered carries with it a whiff of daring and rebellion that appeals to the students of a college campus looking for fresh answers and reversals of everything that they thought was true while growing up.

There are truly untold histories. The history of Communist terror in the Soviet Union and around the world is one of them. As is the history of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, not by some combination of the Mafia, CIA, Cuban exiles and space aliens, but by a fanatical leftist who had defected to the Soviet Union. And finally there is the untold history of American Communists who fought to overthrow the United States and replace it with a totalitarian state through a campaign of terror, treason and lies. A campaign that they waged with as much fanaticism as Lee Harvey Oswald waged his.

Robert Scheer, a co-founder of the domestic terrorist group, Red Family, is a one-man mausoleum of the shrill viciousness of the left and its radical program for America. Like Bill Ayers, Scheer has gone from anti-American terrorist to anti-American academic, teaching a course on media and society at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication.

Scheer had acted as a consultant on Oliver Stone’s Nixon and has moderated discussions between Stone and Peter Kuznick, Stone’s collaborator on “The Untold History of the United States.” Scheer, like Stone and Kuznick, believes that Harry Truman was a war criminal, that the United States was the villain of the Cold War and that it is an empire in need of overthrowing. But propaganda isn’t much use unless it influences the next generation and so Scheer is bringing, “The Untold History of the United States” to the 152 USC undergraduates of his class.

The goal of the “The Untold History of the United States,” both book and propaganda series, is to become the new “A People’s History of the United States.” A multimedia project indoctrinating a new generation with the left’s funhouse mirror conspiracy theories of American history. There is a reason why old terrorists become academics. On the college campus there is no historical revisionism of the left so discredited that it cannot find credulous audiences among the young. And there is no one better than Oliver Stone for the job.

Stone’s specialty is turning left-wing propaganda into pop entertainment. From “Platoon” to “Born on the Fourth of July” to “JFK” to “Nixon” to “W,” Oliver Stone has played Andy Warhol to the red soup companies of men like Robert Scheer. And pop entertainment, whether it’s the Obama campaign or Oliver Stone’s Showtime series, is a vital weapon in winning the hearts and minds of a generation that is overeducated but lacks the ability to burst its own intellectual bubble.

Scheer’s own efforts at manufacturing pop propaganda faltered with “The Great American Stickup,” put out by Nation Books, which vanished quickly into the remainders bin without exercising any serious influence on the national dialogue. While leftists like Scheer dredge up the old Marxist cant about the people, they lack any ability to reach them. They need Stone, but at the same time Stone’s proximity discredits them.

Scheer, Stone and Kuznick share an obsession with a slice of history that began with the American alliance with the Soviet Union during World War II, hit a peak during Vietnam and slowly drained away during the Reagan era. Their ability to relate to events after the Cold War in any terms other than the old ideas of an American Empire run by industrialists maintaining a war industry for their own profit is completely lacking. The War on Terror appears to them only as an askew version of Vietnam. And Vietnam to them was only a consequence of the failure to properly appease Stalin and the Soviet Union.

Stalin and the atrocities of the Soviet Union are the sticking points of the American Reds still refighting the Cold War. They have been unable to come to terms with Stalin’s atrocities and the implications of those atrocities for the moral legitimacy of the Soviet Union and for its supporters. Rather than revise their understanding of history, they are still busy trying to revise history instead.

The Soviet Union was not a moral or ethical entity in the treatment of its workers, its people or its neighbors. Instead it was a monstrous political entity run by mass murderers. The only way for the Scheers and Stones to outrun this truth is by smearing the United States with even more blood and dirt. The more we learn about Soviet atrocities, the more “untold histories” of the United States emerge rehashing dated Communist propaganda into a narrative that exists only to distract Americans from the sins of some of the worst mass murderers of the 20th Century and their supporters on the left.

There are few academics sympathetic to Nazi Germany to be found on American campuses today, but there are quite a few who are sympathetic to the Soviet Union. While much of the left would prefer not to talk about Communism, there is an influential group that still thinks they can talk the victims out of the graves and transform the past by lying hard enough about it.

“The Untold History of the United States” is their concept. It will never truly become a pop success, unlike JFK, because the conspiracy theories that it is concerned with are only relevant to that old red left. Trying to justify the Soviet Union after its collapse is a dead end, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t capable of still doing some damage.

Historical revisionism that whitewashes the crimes of the left will not change how most Americans, even how most college students, see the Soviet Union, but it suppresses the true untold history of the atrocities committed in the name of the revolution and the complicity of the left in those atrocities.

History is how we learn from the past and those who most need to learn from the past are those who are likeliest to repeat it. The modern college campus, like its predecessors, boils with frustrated idealism, agitation and utopianism. It is a place where dreams or nightmares can be born. And Scheer, like Stone, is determined that the next generation never learn what it needs to know to avoid repeating their own mistakes.

      WHO'S COUNTRY?

      The Myth of Thanksgiving

      Every schoolchild in the U.S. has been taught that the Pilgrims of the Plymouth Colony invited the local Indians to a major harvest feast after surviving their first bitter year in New England. But the real history of Thanksgiving is a story of the murder of indigenous people and the theft of their land by European colonialists–and of the ruthless ways of capitalism.

      In mid-winter 1620 the English ship Mayflower landed on the North American coast, delivering 102 Puritan exiles. The original Native people of this stretch of shoreline had already been killed off. In 1614 a British expedition had landed there. When they left they took 24 Indians as slaves and left smallpox behind. Three years of plague wiped out between 90 and 96 percent of the inhabitants of the coast, destroying most villages completely.

      The Puritans landed and built their colony called "the Plymouth Plantation" near the deserted ruins of the Indian village of Pawtuxet. They ate from abandoned cornfields grown wild. Only one Pawtuxet named Squanto had survived–he had spent the last years as a slave to the English and Spanish in Europe. Squanto spoke the colonists' language and taught them how to plant corn and how to catch fish until the first harvest. Squanto also helped the colonists negotiate a peace treaty with the nearby Wampanoag tribe, led by the chief Massasoit.

      These were very lucky breaks for the colonists. The first Virginia settlement had been wiped out before they could establish themselves. Thanks to the good will of the Wampanoag, the Puritans not only survived their first year but had an alliance with the Wampanoags that would give them almost two decades of peace.

      John Winthrop, a founder of the Massachusetts Bay colony considered this wave of illness and death to be a divine miracle. He wrote to a friend in England, "But for the natives in these parts, God hath so pursued them, as for 300 miles space the greatest part of them are swept away by smallpox which still continues among them. So as God hath thereby cleared our title to this place, those who remain in these parts, being in all not 50, have put themselves under our protection."

      The deadly impact of European diseases and the good will of the Wampanoag allowed the Puritans to survive their first year.

      In celebration of their good fortune, the colony's governor, William Bradford, declared a three-day feast of thanksgiving after that first harvest of 1621.

        Liars lie, like the above quote from you.

        "In mid-winter 1620 the English ship Mayflower landed on the North American coast, delivering 102 Puritan exiles."

        Lie.

        "In 1614 a British expedition had landed there. When they left they took 24 Indians as slaves and left smallpox behind. Three years of plague wiped out between 90 and 96 percent of the inhabitants of the coast, destroying most villages completely."

        If you can't come up with a source, I'll have to assume this is also a lie.

        "The Puritans landed and built their colony called "the Plymouth Plantation" near the deserted ruins of the Indian village of Pawtuxet. They ate from abandoned cornfields grown wild. Only one Pawtuxet named Squanto had survived–he had spent the last years as a slave to the English and Spanish in Europe.

        Selective editing of facts for the purpose of deception. In other words, lying.

        "In celebration of their good fortune, the colony's governor, William Bradford, declared a three-day feast of thanksgiving after that first harvest of 1621."

        Nice to end your lies with a commonly accepted statement. Good effort.

      THE ENGLISH PURITAN JIHAD

      How the Puritans Stole the Land

      But the peace that produced the Thanksgiving Feast of 1621 meant that the Puritans would have 15 years to establish a firm foothold on the coast. Until 1629 there were no more than 300 Puritans in New England, scattered in small and isolated settlements. But their survival inspired a wave of Puritan invasion that soon established growing Massachusetts towns north of Plymouth: Boston and Salem. For 10 years, boatloads of new settlers came.

      And as the number of Europeans increased, they proved not nearly so generous as the Wampanoags.

      On arrival, the Puritans discussed "who legally owns all this land." They had to decide this, not just because of Anglo-Saxon traditions, but because their particular way of farming was based on individual–not communal or tribal–ownership. This debate over land ownership reveals that bourgeois "rule of law" does not mean "protect the rights of the masses of people."

      Some Puritans argued that the land belonged to the Indians. These forces were excommunicated and expelled. Massachusetts Governor Winthrop declared the Indians had not "subdued" the land, and therefore all uncultivated lands should, according to English Common Law, be considered "public domain." This meant they belonged to the king. In short, the colonists decided they did not need to consult the Indians when they seized new lands, they only had to consult the representative of the crown (meaning the local governor).

      The Puritans embraced a line from Psalms 2:8. "Ask of me, and I shall give thee, the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession." Since then, European settler states have similarly declared god their real estate agent: from the Boers seizing South Africa to the Zionists seizing Palestine.

      The European immigrants took land and enslaved Indians to help them farm it. By 1637 there were about 2,000 British settlers. They pushed out from the coast and decided to remove the inhabitants.

      • UCSPanther

        All right Farrakhan, then tell me how you would have subdued the Natives, then.

        Probably can't because you know you would do the exact same thing, but probably of a magnitude that would make the British or even the Spanish look like saints in comparison.

        I find it very ironic how you Jihad nutbars use the indigenous North American people to attack us of European ancestry, but we all know of how you treated cultures, religions and artifacts other than your own when you conquered other peoples.

        Right. A better wording would be that they had done nothing to cultivated or even marked or assigned ownership to it themselves. They expected to own everything collectively. Hey, maybe they really were proto-communists who proved already that communism doesn't work.

        This statement makes no sense, and worse, the Israelis didn't "seize" any land at all, unless you count defensive military operations, which are legitimate and needed to this day. They need to expand that policy.

        Yes, it was one big grand strategy. It's actually a blatant lie. There was never any decision to remove inhabitants as you characterize. There was an ongoing clash of civilizations. They could not coexist immediately and bloodshed ensued until it was resolved. Lying about it serves no good purpose. Bad things happened.

      None of the history of the U.S. is untold. Some of it is ignored, some is not very relevant to our circumstances at this point, and some has just fallen into desuetude.

      I always got a kick out of the claim about 15 or 20 years ago, that the disastrous D-Day preparation exercise at Slapton Sands in the spring of 1944 was "covered up" and only revealed when somebody wrote a book about it fifty years later. I knew about Slapton Sands when I was ten years old. It couldn't have been "covered up" because there were so many thousands of GIs who participated in it. Also, there was no "coverup" because the government never engaged in such a thing. It just took its place as an obscure footnote to the history of World War II. There are many other stories that have been put aside. They aren't untold, just neglected.

      Nobody talks any more about Andrew Carnegie and his role in the development of the free library system we enjoy in America either. That doesn't make it an untold story.

      The kind of thinking among this latter-day generation about "untold U.S. history" is of a piece with the kind of thinking that is ignorant of our history and because of that says -falsely and ignorantly- that Hurricane Sandy was the most devastating natural disaster in U.S. history.

      • Woofula

        CPUSA (Communist Party USA) members (even those in Hollywood) actually supported Adolph Hitler for several years during the Hitler-Stalin Pact of August 1939. Since Stalin had a pact with Hitler, the CPUSA demanded that its members had to support Hitler as well (though some did so reluctantly). This pact lasted until June of 1941 when Hitler and Stalin broke their pact. If Stalin and Hitler hadn't fallen out, who knows what would have happened? Stalin is not as demonized as Hitler has been, even though he killed more people.

        • tagalog

          Another untold story might be the contortions the CPUSA was forced to go through by Moscow as the Soviets were first anti-fascist, then Popular Frontists, then pro-Nazi, then our beleagured allies trying to fight off the Nazis with whom they had once conquered Poland.

          The story of how the USSR robbed the Spanish Left of the funds in the Spanish Treasury during the Spanish Civil War would also be interesting. They could write a screenplay that deals with that, using George Orwell as the main character.

      Sir, the thing is that in such a case there would be no need for Stalin's permission: he had planned to stab Hitler in the back himself, but three weeks later (operation "Groza") and to conquer all the Western Europe as its' liberator. Hitler just had to stab the first, otherwise he would be dead not in 1945, but in 1941, as the researches of many contemporary Russian and German historians show. And the excellent book "US Intelligence Perceptions of Soviet Power 1921-1946" by the American researcher Leonard Leshuk shows that FDR was so deeply charmed by our uncle Joe, that he would follow his demands in any case, be it supplying GULAG with the Lend-Lease, enslaving Eastern Europe or creating the anti-American UN. The Left are always the Left, Hitler the stabber or Hitler the stubbed. Rostislav, Saint-Petersburg, Russia.

      JEWS & COMMUNISM

      THE SECRET DRIVING FORCE OF COMMUNISM

      COMMUNISM AS DESTROYER
      Of all revolutionary systems, which throughout human history have been devised for the destruction of our civilised values, Communism is without doubt the most perfected, most efficient and most merciless. All revolutionary currents of Jewish origin have attacked Christianity in its different aspects with particular one-mindedness. Communism, spawned from this same revolutionary stream of thought, seeks to banish Christianity for the purpose of causing it to vanish from the face of the earth, without even the slightest trace remaining. The destructive fury of this satanic striving, which brings before the eyes of the world the most terrible pictures of terror and destruction which are possible to imagine, can only be based on the essence of Nihilism and the most evil, hate-filled rejection of everything hitherto existing. For otherwise, one would not be able to understand the indescribable insanity of its criminal acts and the spirit of destruction, of annihilation, of insult, of contradiction and of resistance by its leading personalities against everything, which represents fundamental features not only of Christianity but of religion in general.
      The purpose of Communism is, as we have indeed seen in Russia and in the other lands where it has been introduced, none other than to enslave the people in the economic, political, social, human and super-human sense, in order to make possible a minority rule through violence. From an international aspect, the goal cannot be clearer:
      “To attain through violence world domination by an insignificant minority, which destroys the rest of humanity by means of materialism, terror and, if necessary, by death, completely indifferent to whether in the process the enormous majority of the population must be murdered.”

    So what part of the history of the United States do Stone and Scheer believe is untold? The story of the economic history of our nation? I thought Milton Friedman told that story. The story of the hard-working people who immigrated here and used their hard work and their skills to build the wealthiest nation on earth? The story of how that wealthiest nation shared its great wealth to bring the rest of the world out of darkness, then took it in the shorts from the people it expended its wealth and resources on? Now that last one, that would be an interesting story, and it's certainly an untold one.

    Now me, if I could dictate the untold story that ought to be told, I'd like to see a sweeping history of the gulag. Maybe somebody, instead of worrying himself silly over writing a screenplay for books like Life of Pi or that Cloud Atlas movie, could put a coherent screenplay together about Solzhenitsyn's Gulag Archipelago.

    I can agree with most of what was written in this article and for the most part I'm an avid fan of most of the people who write these articles however the JFK assassination has so many holes in it that one could hardly determine who the true culprit or culprits were.
    The rest of it however was dead on target. Those witl leftist leanings have always been experts on finding ways to influence young minds and hearts. They have to do it that way as with all ominous and evil ideologies that use the young to spread their rhetoric. They know all others are too well grounded into the truth because they had first hand experience with alot of the history they are lying about. The thing to remember is that it uses part of the truth, if any, to press the all too familiar message of, "IT'S OUR FAULT".

If Jim Jones or Martin Applebaum had survived, we wouldn't let them lecture at a University. But Domestic Terrorists like Bill Ayers and Robert Sheer are allowed to continue re-educating our Children. Heck we even allow non Domestic Terrorists like Rashid Khallidi to teach out children.

      An untold American story is the story of the Weatherpeople and their unique approach to indoctrinating people and their bank/armored car robberies and plots to bomb people. I would be mildly interested in seeing a treatment of how they forced their members to engage in orgies, locked those who needed re-education into closets, shot and killed the first black policeman on the Nyack PD, or shot an innocent bystander in the Crocker Bank robbery, then went on for the next 30 years to live suburban lives without much fear of arrest or prosecution. How about stories about Katherine Soliah and that gal who wrote the cookbook as she was being prosecuted for the Nyack armored car robbery?

      There is a portion of scripture that MOST Christians are ignorant of. We find it in the Gospel of Matthew 12:43-45

      43 “When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. 44 Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. 45 Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.”

    " There are few academics sympathetic to Nazi Germany to be found on American campuses today, but there are quite a few who are sympathetic to the Soviet Union."

    CAIR, the ISNA, ICNA, MSA, and other Islamic outfits, was well as dhimmified university administrators and faculty, are working on that. There has been a proliferation of "Islamic" scholars recruited by many of the top universities to instruct hapless students on the "true" glories of Islam, one of which has been its ideological alliance with Nazism. If not checked, we will see the day when Nazism has been as white-washed as has been Communism. It will be told and "documented" from the Islamic "victimhood" perspective. It will be propagated under the mantle of a "diversity of opinion," and the cloak of "freedom of speech."

    I don’t know why, but my answer to notobjectivefactsmatter just disappeared without any trace, so I’ll try to resurrect it in the opinions box – (oh, now the FPM robot says “You are commenting too quickly”). So, it’s my third – and the last – try to speak my mind in the Land of the Free – here it is:

    “I often what would have happened if Hitler hadn’t stabbed Stalin in the back and given Stalin a reason to allow the leftists to support the USA entering the war. What would they say about Hitler today without Stalin’s permission to demonize him?”

    Sir, the thing is that in such a case there would be no need for Stalin’s permission: he had planned to stab Hitler in the back himself, but three weeks later (operation “Groza”) and to conquer all the Western Europe as its’ liberator. Hitler just had to stab the first, otherwise he would be dead not in 1945, but in 1941, as the researches of many contemporary Russian and German historians show. And the excellent book “US Intelligence Perceptions of Soviet Power 1921-1946″ by the American researcher Leonard Leshuk shows that FDR was so deeply charmed by our uncle Joe, that he would follow his demands in any case, be it supplying GULAG with the Lend-Lease, enslaving Eastern Europe or creating the anti-American UN. The Left are always the Left, Hitler the stabber or Hitler the stubbed. Rostislav, Saint-Petersburg, Russia.

      OK, but the salient point was that without Stalin's permission, the communist left and their dupes would never have cooperated with the US war effort. They may have revised Hitler's story too. Hitler was universally demonized because Stalin wanted him to be. Others since then are defended.

      • historyblogcritic

        No, Hitler was universally demonized because he murdered 10 million people and enslaved half of Europe, trying to create his sick pseudo-scientific vision based on REALLY BAD pseudoscience, of a purebred, genetically-selected, blonde-haired, blue-eyed, master race of Aryan supermen ruling the world and his plans to rid the world of undesirable non-Aryans and Jews, Homosexuals, ETC and because Hitler was the hated enemy that HAD to be destroyed and was gonna turn Britain into a totalitarian dictatorship, putting the world back into darkness and hate and terror and vicious thuggish violence that HITLER had done to Europe and was gonna enslave ALL of Europe and Hitler's feared armies with feared Blitzkrieg tactics that were unrivaled by the other powers and Hitler was despised because Fascism was the ideology that sought to murder people like animals in a slaughterhouse for his pure Aryanized sick, twisted, perverted NAZI VISION OF HUMANITY and the WORLD HAD TO BAND TOGETHER TO STOP THAT EVIL MANIAC AND CRAP! Stalin was NO BETTER, though! We had to beat Hitler into the ground so that Germany WOULD NEVER THREATEN HUMANITY INTO THE THEM and wear DOWN GERMANY INTO NOTHING SO THAT IT COULD NEVER THREATEN EUROPE AGAIN AND CREATE ANOTHER WAR to destroy Europe and because of the failure to totally finish Germany after WWI and the failure of the Allies and their harsh and ridiculous policies towards Germany that fueled the rage that Germany had towards the Allies, breeding the conditions that led to the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Holocaust that I talked about and World War II and all that sort of stuff! World War II was a noble crusade to defeat the evil fascism that would have enslaved the rest of the world, had it not been stopped in Europe!

        There is the untold story of Stalin's aggression against Poland in 1939, in association with Adolf Hitler, to carve Poland in half.

        Stalin got the eastern hinterlands of Poland, their eastern territories known in Polish as Kresy Wschodnie, that were over half of Polish territory at the time, won from the Old Russian Empire and the post-war chaos from the Russian Revolution of 1917. Poland WAS RECOGNIZED FOR OWNING THOSE TERRITORIES AND THEY WERE INTERNATIONALLY-RECOGNIZED AS BELONGING TO POLAND and the Soviets kept their illegally stolen half of Poland and illegally annexed it into the Soviet Union, giving it to the republics of Lithuania, Ukraine, and Belarus. The western part of Ukraine, like Lvov and Rovno, and Ivano-Franvisk, IS POLISH TERRITORY, that belongs to Ukraine and is YES UKRAINIAN TERRITORY by default, but IS REALLY POLISH TERRITORY, stolen by Joseph Stalin in 1939.

        They were illegally stolen by the Soviet Union in the year 1939 AD and the Kresy Wschodnie were RECOGNIZED as a part of Poland. They were sovreign Polish territories and their theft by the Soviet Union was recognized by the international community and to this day, Russia has never once apologized for these illegal annexations of Romania, Poland, and Finland. Vyborg was Viipuri and this was stolen by Stalin under the guise of "protecting Leningrad" from Stalin's paranoid fantasy of a Finnish invasion of Leningrad. It was done, under the false pretenses of protecting Leningrad from a Finnish invasion, that NEVER HAPPENED AND WOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED, but DID IN 1941, when Finland, allied with Germany, INVADED THAT LAND TO LIBERATE IT FROM THE SOVIET UNION AND FAILED MISERABLY! It happened AFTER Stalin invaded and committed aggression against Finland in 1939 AND AFTER THE PEACE TREATY shoved down Finland's throat by the Soviet Union that "ceded" by a false and phony treaty, Viipuri, and the same thing happened with Poland post-war, when the illegally-installed communist government of Poland, that was NOT internationally recognized, BY A FALSE ILLEGAL TREATY COERCED BY THE SOVIET UNION and drafted by the Soviets to "legitimately" FACILITATE THEIR THEFT OF THE EASTERN BORDERLANDS (HINTERLANDS) of Poland in 1939, by illegal coercion by the Soviet Union against Poland, by the illegitimate Moscow-sponsored, illegal, unrecognized, unlawful, land-grabbing, thieving, conniving, murderous, wrongful, (except by the Soviet Union), puppet government, shoved down the throat of Poland by Stalin, that Soviet apologists like Oliver Stone and Sabrina P. Rahmet apologize for Stalin's pseudo-liberation "LIBERATION" of Eastern Polish territories under the absurd propaganda of liberating it from "Polish tyranny of Polish bourgeois overlords!" See, far-left revisionism? The illegal theft of Poland. That land belongs to Poland! It should be done that by international law, and violations of international law that was the theft of Kresy Wschodnie by the Soviet Union and illegal annexations that violated international law and to this day, Ukraine, Lithuania, and Belarus will NOT GIVE THESE LANDS BACK TO POLAND! They rightfully belong to Poland AND THE POLISH GOVERNMENT IN EXILE in 1990 and to this day, the government of Poland has not asked them to hand back these lands to Poland! I suppose it would be impossible to do so!

        The theft of Poland's, Romania's and Finland's territories has been rewarded by the international community by the USA And GREAT BRITAIN! Give KRESY WSCHODNIE BACK! Poland was never compensated for it! Poland was never returned these territories! Germany lost its eastern territories to Poland in act of theft by the Polish Communist puppet government installed by Moscow in 1945 and the theft of Germany's eastern territories that was done to "compensate" one theft for another, by an illegitimate communist government.

        Poland DID NOT steal those lands, the Soviet Union DID and it was NOT legitimately POLAND it was done by the Soviet Union, treating Poland as a fake marionette puppet against the will of Poland! (IT WAS NOT EVEN POLAND AS A REAL NATION, BUT GOVERNED BY A PSEUDO, ILLEGAL MOSCOW-INSTALLED PUPPET GOVERNMENT in 1945, a puppet against the will of the Polish people and against the Polish nation, a government that the people of Poland did not want at all, but sadly, greeted them as "liberators" and sadly, we glorify communist propaganda about "liberation" of Poland on sites like Wikipedia and other pro-Communist pro-Soviet shill pseudo-historians like the ones that you are talking about.) Poland "stole'" Germany's eastern territories in 1939, containing the cities of Breslau, Konigsberg, Stettin, Glogau, and others and OTHER CITIES and lands in Pomerania, East Prussia, and Silesia, STOLEN BY THE PSEUDO SOVIET-DOMINATED STATE OF POLAND.

        These annexations and thefts should be illegal and nullified by international law and by the UN treaties and MADE TO ADHERE TO INTERNATIONAL LAWS AND HAVE THESE TERRITORIES RETURNED BACK TO THEIR RIGHTFUL OWNERS!

        The international community, THE SAME ONE THAT RECOGNIZED THESE THEFTS , IS DOING THE SAME THING IN KOSOVO as well! The severing of Yugoslavia was a shameful act! Another instance of giving into nationalist separatists in the same way that Hitler DID AND THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY HAD NO IDEA NOT A CLUE THAT THEY WERE FOLLOWING THE LEGACY OF HITLER AND FAILED TO LEARN FROM HISTORY IN YUGOSLAVIA, when they recognized the fake nationalist fascist separatist fascist movements in Slovenia and Croatia that were illegal and illegally declared these republics to be "independent" These were stolen from Yugoslavia and they DID THE EXACT SAME THING IN YUGOSLAVIA!

        There would have been no ethnic cleansing, no genocide, none OF THAT in Bosnia or Kosovo, IF THE YUGOSLAVIAN GOVERNMENT HAD BEEN ALLOWED TO RESTORE ORDER IN THESE COUNTRIES IN YUGOSLAVIA! The economy was in collapse, there is no way that they could have, i Suppose.

I AM NOT SAYING WE SHOULD SUPPORT SERBIAN FASCISM, EITHER! RETURN YUGOSLAVIA TODAY AND POLAND'S EASTERN TERRITORIES!

        Restore YUGOSLAVIA!
        Stop using the Balkans as a lab rat for foreign policy ideas in 1945 that was the worst mistake ever to have the usurper Tito steal the country of Yugoslavia and illegally proclaim himself leader and install an illegal Soviet-installed GOVERNMENT INSTEAD OF RESTORING THE OLD KINGDOM OF YUGOSLAVIA, as opposed to NEARBY GREECE, WHERE THE BRITISH DEFEATED THE COMMUNISTS AND CHURCHILL SUPPORTING THE COMMIES IN YUGOSLAVIA, INSTEAD OF GREECE! Brotherhood and Unity FAILED MISERABLY AND BADLY AND LED TO THE BALKAN WARS IN THE 90s! It's true, IT DID You can look all this up for yourselves!

        Poland DID NOT steal those lands, the Soviet Union DID and it was NOT legitimately POLAND it was done by the Soviet Union, treating Poland as a fake marionette puppet against the will of Poland! (IT WAS NOT EVEN POLAND AS A REAL NATION, BUT GOVERNED BY A PSEUDO, ILLEGAL MOSCOW-INSTALLED PUPPET GOVERNMENT in 1945, a puppet against the will of the Polish people and against the Polish nation, a government that the people of Poland did not want at all, but sadly, greeted them as "liberators" and sadly, we glorify communist propaganda about "liberation" of Poland on sites like Wikipedia and other pro-Communist pro-Soviet shill pseudo-historians like the ones that you are talking about.) Poland "stole'" Germany's eastern territories in 1939, containing the cities of Breslau, Konigsberg, Stettin, Glogau, and others and OTHER CITIES and lands in Pomerania, East Prussia, and Silesia, STOLEN BY THE PSEUDO SOVIET-DOMINATED STATE OF POLAND.

        These annexations and thefts should be illegal and nullified by international law and by the UN treaties and MADE TO ADHERE TO INTERNATIONAL LAWS AND HAVE THESE TERRITORIES RETURNED BACK TO THEIR RIGHTFUL OWNERS!

        The international community, THE SAME ONE THAT RECOGNIZED THESE THEFTS , IS DOING THE SAME THING IN KOSOVO as well! The severing of Yugoslavia was a shameful act! Another instance of giving into nationalist separatists in the same way that Hitler DID AND THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY HAD NO IDEA NOT A CLUE THAT THEY WERE FOLLOWING THE LEGACY OF HITLER AND FAILED TO LEARN FROM HISTORY IN YUGOSLAVIA, when they recognized the fake nationalist fascist separatist fascist movements in Slovenia and Croatia that were illegal and illegally declared these republics to be "independent" These were stolen from Yugoslavia and they DID THE EXACT SAME THING IN YUGOSLAVIA!

    Well,we have a new slug on FPM and his name is (yuck) Louis Farrakhan. Why someone would want the name of an anti-American,anti-semitic piece of garbage like that is beyond me.

    Why is it that radicals seem to gravitate toward and achieve more success in Academia? Without any hard evidence or relevant data I can only speculate on the basis of experience and a modicum of insight into human nature.

    First, I suspect most of these radicals assume that the rabble, the common man, i.e., most of us, are inferior to them intellectually though perhaps endowed with “superficial” attributes such as personality, physical strength, agility, grace, and beauty, attributes they often don't have. They thus find justification for their failure to achieve the success they "deserve" when competing with these "inferiors" and their irritation and frustration having to do the bidding of their "unworthy," more successful and better rewarded superiors.

    So, after some years of rabble rousing and sometimes violent revolt as the preferred means of expressing their frustration and not achieving their desired social upheaval and the demise of American Capitalism, how best to proceed? What's the solution to their problem? They have a psychological need to be in a position where they are the focus of attention, in control and able to reward those who share their radical views and punish those who resist. And they need to be patient, take a longer view and operate within the law, not outside it. It would also be desirable to be paid well, have job security and the freedom to set self serving job performance standards and rules. What better method, and perhaps the only method, for the intellectually gifted, revolutionary malcontent to achieve these goals than to get established as a tenured professor, especially at a prestigious institution of higher learning where the degree of deviance from "common sense directly correlates" to IQ. And, perhaps best of all, be in a position to magnify their influence, create a cadre of like minded individuals enrolled in curricula focused on the science of communication.

    If this is at least partially true, and it need not be in every case, then the increasing left leaning culture as it exists today makes perfect sense. Many in the print and broadcast media, the post WWII years crowd in Hollywood and the power brokers in politics are graduates of the institutions where these tenured professors don't teach but indoctrinate their students with their Utopian, egalitarian, Communist, anti-Capitalism, anti-American, anti-conservative, statist doctrines.

    This is not unique to the United States. Europe is equally infected with this social malaise. What is worrisome is that this process has been underway for decades. Reversing it, if that is even possible without resorting to an armed struggle, will likely take at least as long and, arguably, must begin in the higher education systems where it began. Equally worrisome is that this entrenched, Leftist cancer continues to spread like an incurable plague that threatens to create the "Utopian" disaster the Left so urgently and fervently desires; the end that justifies the means they so effectively use to demonize all who oppose them.

      Studies show educators have an overwhelmingly high number of sociopaths in their ranks, as does the MSM. This comes with a whole catalogue of personality disorders.

      Many college professors go from being indoctrinated as a student into being the teacher. They live in insular communities ,have no connection to real America or it's needs and wants. They have limited life experiences but believe they have all the answers and solutions to problems. If their isn't a problem they will dig around and create one.

      They strive to be heroes ,reformers,utopian creationists and experts with all the answers.
      But they have no idea what the questions are.

    It's only over the past few years I have been able to grasp why a lot of history needs to be unlearned. We are witnessing active rewriting of history by the left liberal. Make no mistake. This is not new for them. I sense that a lot of history (the Crusades, the wholesale killing of aboriginals, the British Empire, American imperialism, etc.) have been distorted, retold and sometimes changed completely so the narrative of good being called evil marches on.

    Very early on, the people whose unworthy successors came to be called "hippies" were pretty libertarian. And they knew it. They faded away pretty quickly as the parasites took over freakdom.

    One of my life's turning points was when I used to hang around with some college revolutionaries who spent a lot of time talking about "bringing the war back home," and fighting with The Man in the streets. I once invited a couple of them to come to the range and shoot some targets with me. They were horrified. I asked them how they expected to fight a revolution if they didn't know how to shoot. Their mouths just went open and shut until they formulated a "blah blah blah" response. That's when I began to understand that (as you have said) "they were just privileged a-holes." That was the beginning of my rightward political journey.

    What we have here is people like Oliver Stone,who basically believes this country is evil and should be transformed somehow. They believe that the Soviet Union and other Communist countries were so great and benevolent,that they neglect to mention that many of their citizens escape their countries,many of whom ended up in America. If this country is so evil and bad,why are so many willing to risk their lives coming here? That's the question I'd like Oliver Stone and those like him to answer.

  • HIP OP

    STONE is surely disappointing even diehard fans
    with this half-baked, lamely conceived, poorly executed work.

    He begins his survey about 5 decades too late,
    makes NO layout or examination of the nature, history,
    legacy and practice of unaccountable, intergenerational,
    INTER–national, capstone USURY 'banking' and Globalist
    monopoly practice.

    He says nothing much at all about the 4 decades unfolding
    RED China handover op —or capstone 'social engineering'
    funded and directed thru the deadly sinister, trillionaire funded
    –TAX FREE!– foundations and NGOs.

    He goes not at all into the Wall Street and London groomed
    and funded agents Lenin and Trotsky.

    He makes nothing of EUGENICS —–not to mention EXTERMINIST
    FINAL EUGENICS.

    —-Stone was once a soldier –but in 2012 —he's AWOL< if not 'on board'. . .
