We Were Warned in 1963: Has Communist Ideology Overtaken America?

Has Communist Ideology Overtaken America? Education is crucial. Today I want to share two very interesting lists with you, and sickleflagrather than adding an extensive amount of my commentary, I want to give you the chance to examine the facts for yourself. It is my opinion that many communist goals have already been accomplished. I also believe that advancement has been made in other areas.  But, you owe it to yourself to do your own research. I believe not only in the freedom of speech, but also in the responsibility of free thought. So please don’t take my word for it. Examine the facts for yourself.

Again, I want to share two lists with you. The first is a list that was entered into 1963 Congressional Record. The second is the 10 planks of The Communist Manifesto.

If you can’t see this happening in America, and a ton of progress being made, then I offer two potential explanations:

  1. usefulYou are one of the “useful idiots” of communist teaching.
  2. I am one of the “village idiots” that your Mama probably warned you about.

Some of these points will be open for debate and some will not. In some cases it is blatantly obvious that they have achieved their goals. It is even rumored that our own President has deep communist ties. You might want to check that out as well but I will withhold my opinion at this point. Let’s just lay it out and you can interpret it.

This list was originally printed in “The Naked Communist” by Cleon Skousen. It was entered into Congressional Record in 1963 as the 45 goals of “The Communist Takeover of America.”

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the un1971U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

naked11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy making positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.creativecursing

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

prayerinschool28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

obamaapprove32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social sshollowagencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

divorce40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

10 Planks of “The Communist Manifesto:”

1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rent to public purpose.

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.manifesto

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.

6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the State.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

8. Equal liablity of all to labor. Establishment of Industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.

10. Free education for all children in government schools. Abolition of children’s factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc. etc.

Of 55 things listed here I would be curious to what your personal scorecard might read. Feel free to comment below. My interpretation is that progress or completion has been made on almost every single goal or plank laid out today. If you would like to do further research on this topic I would highly recommend a FREE movie that you can access today:

  1. Your point is incredibily accurate from what I can gather. I’m actually afraid to total those up, for fear there no time left to change anything? I struggle with this fear daily. I’m 1 person and I tweet, FB and tell people in the nursing home I live in, but there’s nothing more I can do. I just pray I’m long dead before this becomes a reality.

    • Well it sounds like you are doing more than most of us. All we can do is try to educate people. That is exactly how they got things to this point. We must match their propaganda with truth. We can never give up my friend. We must fight to our last breath. I know it’s hard. We all have those days when things seem to be stacked too heavily against us. But they are not. Remember that our rights are protected by the constitution but given by God. If God is on our side then I can not believe that our defeat is possible. I won’t believe it.

    • Stephanie Thomas says:

      You and I both have the same prayer… but I’m afraid everything is speeding up because “the Dumbing of America” was so successful…
      I, too, am a senior. I learned about all this in the 1940’s and tried to spread the information, but my fellow Americans thought it was a joke.

  2. Michael Lawrence says:

    Wow, these lists are very sad and frightening. Many things on the first list are exactly what the Democrats and liberals are doing. It is sad that many Republicans are buying into many of these things. Many see this for what it is and are resisting. Many are pushing for a more conservative political party and voting for more conservative candidates.
    I am not confident that this will stop this push to communism and this agenda being pushed on us has moved us closer to the brink of civil war. I hope our nation never has to see another civil war…. I would like to say it will never happen….

    • I am 100% in agreement. It might take a revolution to fix things. If that day comes we have to make a decision. But if communism takes over then submission is not much safer than resistance. That has been proven throughout history. I’d rather die while fighting for freedom than die a broken man who became a slave and stood for nothing.

  3. SamuelAdams says:

    I got to 33 before I even thought it wasn’t completely accomplished and started thinking well that’s partially done.

    Yes, this is scary when looking at it in this light.

    Those asking if the first shots have already been fired should have their answer. YES!

    So what is our response? Continued, apathy and acceptance? At what point can we no longer respond? I think that point is close at hand.

    • If you get a chance, watch that movie if you have never seen it. There was so much research put into it. I think that the average American Patriot knows that our own freedom is at stake, but I think that few fail to remember that America is literally the last stand of the free world. If communism wins here, who will fight it? I mean no disrespect but I don’t think countries like Britain, Canada, and Australia would stand much chance in this fight without us behind them.

      • Stephanie Thomas says:

        …but that’s why so many foreigners are being brought in here who are accustomed to having their government run everything…when they get so much for free, they love it. They never ‘Americanize’ because they don’t have to. It’s simply not necessary. We would never be able to get them to fight back. They don ‘t even know the difference.

        The 1960’s was our last window of opportunity…

      • Sonia says:

        Britian, Canada and Australia are further along in this communist takeover than we here in the US are. Australians have already been disarmed by their government and property owners are told what they can charge for rent on the properties they own by the government.
        As in the past, the communists work hand and hand with the Muslims in destabilzing a country, the Muslim problem in Europe, Australia and Canada are resulting in such crisis and anarchy that it is unbelievable. See the video I posted earlier to learn about destablization.

        At the end of WWII, Western countries were earmarked by the communinsts for ideological subversion because they could not be beaten militarily. Ideological subversion is a long process of destroying your enemy without, as Krushchev said, “firing a single shot” The process takes about 40 to 50 years. We are headed for some very turbulent waters.

        • landsharkxray says:

          I would really be pleased if one day, soon, everyone would get out of bed, grab a wholesome breakfast, pack a lunch and start taking their countries back from the damned fool idiots who are slowly handing them over to Communism/one world government.It is not too late. It’s time they start dancing to our tune. Semper Fi!

  4. landsharkxray says:

    If Congress does not respond to the current state of affairs, and the US Military fails to exercise it’s oath to uphold and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foriegn and domestic, it is incumbant upon the people of the United States of America to respond as the founders of our nation did, and repair damage done. Semper Fidelis!

  5. sbspecks says:

    well crap, Dean…I was JUST in the process of typing these out! I found these early last September and was haunted by how many of these have come to pass.

  6. cheryl laws says:

    I do not know how old most of you are but, I remember as a child growing up communism was our biggest fear. When the cold war was over we merrily went about our lives in total trust of our government, never saw this coming. Now I am at odds with my children due to the fact I taught my children to trust, to be kind, to not be racist against people of different religions, or nationalities. When abortion came to law I was sickened & still am. I try to tell my children that they are losing thier freedom by supporting this government & what it stands for.The education that they recieved in collage & on the internet is much more wise than I am, (thier words). I tell them & others I have never seen this nation this divided even when the Veterans came home from nam, it was ugly yet somehow we came together to become a nation once again.

    • landsharkxray says:

      Cheryl, Show your children what you read here. What worries you about their future. About the future of America. Show them the path to more information that will open their eyes to the truth of the day. and to the truth of what may needs be done to save our freedon and our nation. Thank you for caring. semper Fidelis!

    • I am 44. I’d suggest you make them watch that movie with you. I do disagree that the sources they are trusting are wiser than you my friend. When they get older they will understand that real wisdom comes from Mom and Dad.

  7. Gary Harper says:

    Divide and conquer. It has worked for ages.

    The United States of America is the last relatively free and independently armed warrior society left on earth. If we are put under, you will see one world government, with all control of all peoples being in the hand of whoever controls the police apparatus. Armies will be abolished in name; there will only be the police. In name. After us, only Russia remains to fight this coming government of insidious evil.

    They at the top will even kill each other, until the most treacherous among them rises up supreme. This has always happened. He will require the people to bow before him, or face certain death. His word will be law, and you will be nothing. You will be as chaff, blown before the withering heat of his very breath. This too always happens.

    We who call for preservation of the Costitution are the last free princes and princesses left on earth. Each one of us is a nation unto ourselves. It is only by remaining united in purpose that the forces of darkness about to descend upon the Earth can be repelled by us. We will rise from the ashes of this reborn, like a Phoenix. The weak who chose to bow down will all be consumed in the conflict. They are always the first to perish, history shows that. The meek shall inherit a place deep in the earth, but the faithful warriors shall inherit their rightful kingdom. Their true inheritance, that no one can take away from them.

    The ancient cultures foretold of the time we are living in. For me, it is no longer fantastical myths, or the Revelation. It is a real-time data stream.

    Know the truth, for the truth will set you free. This law of the universe will never change.

    Resist, but not like the oak. The wind always blows it over. Resist like the grasses, the bamboo. Be resilient, resist where you can, but let the hardest gusts blow over you. Then rise up behind them immediately, and do your duty for your children, and for what you view to be your God. Resistance is not futile. Resistance is your inheritance, your birthright, your duty.

    Many are saying, “How much longer are we going to just sit and talk? When do we do something about it?”

    We are doing something about it. The revolution will not be televised. The revolution will be live.

    Make no mistake. This is the revolution. This is the revolution that started in Boston Harbor. it has never ended; it cannot ever end.

    True Patriots try to win the hearts and minds of their fellow citizens. We are not opressors. We do not try to control your lives and your thoughts. We do not understand why you are allowing this to be done to yourselves, but it is your choice to choose to live under the lash. This is why we write, and try to educate other thinking people.

    The yoke of freedom is light, and does not chafe. Wear your responsibility proudly upon your shoulders.

    This is the true revolution. A war of words. A clash of ideologies. Without free thinking people, any other freedoms are illusions. Any blood shed is done in vain. Free your mind. Feed your head. Man does not live by bread alone.

    So, we write for now, in this war. It is your choice: the darkness of night, or the light of dawn.

    “How much longer?” you ask.

    “Wait. For a time yet.”

    The time is almost at hand. If we are all united of purpose and stand up in the face of opression, we will be like a wall unbroken around a sacred city. Free your mind, guard your heart, save your soul. You are to bow before no man or institution made by man.

    Resist. And join in the war of words. For they are afraid. They knpw you are right. It is time to press your advantage.

    Raise no other man above you. Fawn on no one. Be a respector of neither person nor position. A man of God once said that.

    Gary W. Harper, at your service.

    • landsharkxray says:

      To put it simply, thank you, Gary.

      • Amen to that. Very nice. Sorry my comments are short and sweet tonight. I have a baby on my lap. I’m actually going to make her watch Agenda with me. I want to see it again. We will get her started right. 🙂 Thanks everyone for your comments.

    • Sonia says:

      Well said, friends. Thank you for these words. I have been talking online, in groups, everywhere I go, for the last 4 years, trying to inform people and feed truth to their minds. I have felt it was in vain many times, but daily I see people, like Dean here, who is beginning to post the information. Your words, are an inspiration. The revolution, for now, is a matter of education and information. People have to know the truth and be awakened before they can unite to fight against this onslaught.

  8. Sonia says:

    Dean, I have been posting these goals on my FB page and in groups for over a year now. I am going to post a link to yet another video that will solidify and tie this all together for you in a concrete way. This will blow your mind, and leave no doubt at all as to the FACT that the communist, like Krushchev said, have taken over the country “without firing a single shot”. I will post a link to a video, and I encourage you to also watch other videos on YouTube that were done by the same guy, Yuri Bezmenov, defected ex-KGB agent of propaganda. There are a total of seven of them.

    Here is one of the links:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Iz3VjoHXLA

  9. KC says:

    Dean, I found your blog early last month and have added you to the list I follow daily. I just finished watching the video and although I am aware of the lefts slow creep takeover of our society it was still eye opening to watch the presentation. Thank you. I have never left a comment on a blog before but feel compeled to do so now. I am just 2 years behind you and have been concerned about the path of the country for some time now. Unlike Michelle Obama I have never been more ashamed of my country. I was a history major in college and have always been a history buff, especially military history, so I have a firm foundation in the events of the past century. I used to consider myself a Republican but am now very disenchanted with the whole process. I do not know where this will all end but I do not have good feelings about the outcome. I copy and send your articles, and others work, to my family and friends to help make them aware but I am preaching to the choir there. I am very frustrated and feel powerless to do much about the situation we find ourselves in. However, I have made my decisions and know where I stand and have accepted it as best I can. I have been preparing for a while now and will continue to do so for as long as I can. I just hope it will be enough.

  10. Jennifer Zapata says:

    Our acceptance of de-moralization is worse than our acceptance of dumbing down. We need to return to morals and religion, which is how the colonists gained freedom. How many of us accepted extra-marital sex as normal, use the name of the Lord in vain, and violate the Sabbath? This things should be so obvious, but their violation in rampant. How can we ask the Lord for help in such a state?
