G. Edward Griffin explains how, since at least the 1920s, communists have had plans to use racial agitation, violence, and socialism for communist revolution in America.
As early as 1928 the Communist declare that the racial differences among our people constituted the weakest and most vulnerable point in our social fabric. By constantly probing and straining at this one spot, they calculated that eventually the cloth could be torn apart and that Americans could be divided, weakened and perhaps even set against each other in open combat. We mustn’t kid ourselves into thinking that the Communists have placed their agitators only into the black communities, their tworking both sides of the street. They want hatred violence and bloodshed between the races, and they don’t care how they get it or whom they use, even children if necessary. Here is a book that I think should be in every home library. It’s entitled Color, Communism and Common Sense by Manning Johnson. He join the party of the young man because he honestly believed that the Communists were trying to improve the conditions of his people. He was a dedicated, and eventually he rose the one of the highest ranks. But after many years he discovered that instead they were merely planning to use his people in a bloody revolution to destroy America, and when he woke up to this, he dropped out of the party and devoted the rest of his life trying to alert his fellow citizens of all Races to the true nature of the Communist Party as he knew what to be from the inside. Manning Johnson said, “Black rebellion was what Moscow wanted, bloody racial conflict would split America. During the confusion demoralization and panic would set in then finally the Reds say workers stop work. Many of them seize arms by attacking Arsenal’s, street fights become frequent. Under the leadership of the Communist Party, the workers organize revolutionary committees to be in command of the uprising. Armed workers seize the principal government offices, invade the residences of the president and his cabinet members, arrest them, declare the old regime abolished, establish their own power.”
Now here is a piece of vicious Communist propaganda that perhaps some of you have seen. It’s called The Crusader. It’s written by Robert F. Williams, one of the organizers of the Revolutionary Action Movement. In this issue of The Crusader, the Communist call not only for extensive chaos within the cities, but for putting to the torch every village every forest every field and every barn. The plan is for raging fires from one city to the next. The reason, well, first there’s the value of sheer destruction. Secondly, it would force us to deploy our defenses and rescue units over the widest possible area. The Communist point out that as long as our police and National Guard remain concentrated they’re invincible, but is they can be forced to spread out over the entire city and into the countryside as well, then they can be picked off from ambush, one by one. And the third value of massive fire to the Communist is psychological. The average American, they say, is soft and decadent. When he sees billows of black smoke rising from one horizon to the other. When at night the only light he has to see from is flickering red from flames leaping into the sky, he’ll become paralyzed with fear and panic. Hell run away and hide and do nothing to interfere with a gorilla bands as they strike at the communities power centers. The Crusader explains how to set up sniper units in crowded metropolitan areas. How to manufacture jumbo Molotov cocktails, the gallon jug size, and how to mix the gasoline with certain ingredients to make it burn like Napalm. How to pour gasoline into utility manholes in the streets to set fire to the main telephone cables. How to put sulphur tips from matches into air conditioning units and blow up large buildings. How to ignite gas mains an oil storage tanks. It explains how radio-controlled model airplanes can be used to fly explosive charges over heavily guarded fences in the gasoline storage areas or ammunition stockpiles. It even calls for infiltration into the National Guard units. Revolutionaries posing as non militants for the purpose of getting free military training and for gaining access to critical military supplies and heavy weapons. And then finally Robert Williams says this, “Any fallout minority revolution must create a state of crisis where in almost all of the male population would be forced to remain in their homes to protect their property and family. The middle class is very large, but it is not accustomed to deprivation and terror because of this affluence. It has waxed soft. It has no stomach for massive fire, blood and violence. The motive force behind its life drive is its endless pursuit of prestige, conspicuous consumption, and sensual pleasure. A few years of violent, sporadic and highly destructive uprisings will set the stage for the grand finale. After the stage is properly set through protracted struggle, America could be brought to her knees in 90 days of highly organized fierce fighting, sabotage and massive firestone.”
Ladies and gentlemen, the plans and preparations for a Communist revolution of force and violence are far advanced. The organization behind These preparations has almost unlimited financial resources and it provides both training and leadership based upon years of experience in many other countries. Our enemies are deadly serious about their task, and it’s nothing short of National suicide for us to continue to ignore their plans and their progress. The violent revolution becomes a primary value to the Communists to the extent to which it can be used to condition the masses psychologically to accept the nonviolent revolution which is offered supposedly as they only alternative. Hoping to avoid further violence and bloodshed the public is to be pressured into accepting measures that will move the country graduation and legally toward communism, but without calling it that. The strategy of the proletarian revolution calls for the quiet conversion of our government into a Communist regime but under the banner of socialism.
Well, what is socialism. Let’s define it. According to the dictionary socialism is a political concept based upon the principle of government ownership and control of property, means of production, and the avenues of commerce. Under socialism, those who run the government, and the Communists are confident that in America they eventually will be the ones who do so, those who run the government will know who is to get something and who has to wait and that represents control over human beings. What is all this to do with the Communist revolution in America. Well, ladies and gentlemen it has everything to do with it, because the building of socialism is the Communist Revolution in America. It represents the process whereby our country can be moved gradually toward communism without the people even being aware of it. No matter what grievance we may have, real or imagined, no matter what problems we please upon these as excuses to build socialism. They have one and only one solution for all problems, more government, more government, and then more and more until its total government, and forgive me for saying it one more time, total government is communism.
G. Edward Griffin on Communist Smear Tactics
Excerpt from a lecture given in 1969 by G. Edward Griffin of The John Birch Society on communism in the United States of America.
Quote: “In 1943 the following directive was issued from party headquarters to all communists in the United States. It read when certain obstructionists become too irritating label them after suitable buildups as fascist or nazi or anti-semitic and used the prestige of anti-fascist and tolerance organisations to discredit them. In the public mind constantly associate those who oppose us with those names which already have a bad smell. The association will after enough repetition become fact in the public mind.”
