The Second Totalitarian Wave

As I mentioned in Sunday’s post, Diana West was honored last week by the Pumpkin Papers Irregulars at their annual gathering. Below are excerpts from her speech that night in which she points out the parallels between Communist infiltration and today’s Muslim Brotherhood penetration of the United States government, and also the direct historical connection between these two types of totalitarian subversion.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for editing and uploading this video:

  1. Peter Hitchens provides an explanation of why Islam receives such a warm reception on the left in spite of it “puritanical” teachings. “The Left can sympathize with it (Islam) as the enemy of their Christian monoculture and as an anti-colonial and therefore ‘progressive’ force.”

  2. This goes back to what I was saying on the other thread, that the real elite don’t want people drawing attention to the fact that governments are composed of puppets who are manipulated by the people around them. They don’t want people to even consider that possibility, let alone look at how it is still happening today.

  3. anti-colonial? They are more colonial than the west ever was. Look at all the countries that have been invaded by Islam in the past 50 years.

    • Only whites can be “colonialist” (according to the PC MCs). If a brown people behave in colonialist ways, they are not perceived by the PC MCs to be such.

      The same goes for every other crime and pathology they may demonstrate, advocate and commit.

  5. I’ve found Ron Jeffery’s book “Red runs the Vistula” to be an illuminating read on Communist infiltration, particularly on the damage done during the Second World War. The book describes the activity of this English escaped POW, who was fluent in Polish & German, in the Polish underground during the war. The following points corroborate Diana West’s wonderful book in part.

    Writing in 1985 Jeffery had no doubt the Russians, not the Germans – whom he loathed – had performed the Katyn massacre.

    He also describes a meeting he had with a Col. Boris von Regenau (previously Smislowsky) who had left to fight with Germany against the Bolsheviks. Boris had seen that Germany would be defeated and wanted to help the Allies before the Communists “could swarm all over Europe”. Boris’ role as Chief of Staff of the Russian Federation Army meant he had 400 agents at his disposal throughout German occupied Russia and even within the Soviet Union. He wanted to join with the Allies as long as the main thrust was to be of an anti-Bolshevik nature.

    “He maintained friendly & professional relationships with most departmental heads of German intelligence, some of whom, over 20 years of close association, had become trusted friends. Many of these high ranking soldiers were disillusioned with the Fuhrer & his jumped up political entourage. Boris was sure that to save Germany from the Bolshevik menace, quite a few of them could be recruited to work on behalf of the Allies, the survival of a decent Germany their inspiration.”

    Jeffery made his way back to England to enlist the Allies in recruiting Boris and shortening the war. Unfortunately he was debriefed by a British intelligence officer named Philby who accused him of … wait for it, if you’ve read Pacepa you know what’s coming… being a Nazi collaborator. His information went nowhere and even a planned meeting with Prime Minister Churchill was blocked. Jeffery names a close Churchill advisor as being a Communist (unfortunately I can’t find the name just now). Jeffery ended the war peeling spuds & cleaning latrines. As Diana West notes: How many lives could have been saved and how much misery averted if the world had ended early and the Communists had not been able to gain large areas of European real estate?

    Jeffery says that “the Philby clique” were responsible for later ensuring there was no acknowledgement in his Regiment’s history that he had received decorations from the Polish government.

    Finally, he comments on the Warsaw Uprising and how the Russians encouraged the Poles to fight, so they would compliment the Russian advance, and then denied assistance of any kind to the Poles. Night time air drops were organised by the other Allies “suffering casualties proportionately heavier than any other war-time operation … Some Polish squadrons suffered 100% losses. … One South African bomber pilot who took part, vividly described to me the inferno they were obliged to fly over, low and slow, to pinpoint the drops. … In the words of my South African pilot friend, who now lives in New Zealand [where the author lived at the time of writing], … the Russians were never referred to after the Uprising in any air force bomber mess as ‘Russians’ or ‘Soviets’ but as ‘those bastards’.”

    The Russians had flatly refused to allow any Allied aircraft to land on their side of the Vistula for any reason. It was generally believed that any damaged aeroplanes seeking to land were shot down, no-one survived after attempting such a landing.

    I think this first hand-account confirms Diana West’s work.

  6. I should also have mentioned that upon his return to Britain Jeffrey was met by the same Owen O’Malley who came across so well in Diana West’s book and who it seems did all he could to advance Jeffrey’s cause.

  7. “Berlin Diaries, 1940-1945” by Marie “Missie” Vassiltchikov, apart from being a literary gem and an autobiography of an absolutely remarkable woman, provides an insider’s account of efforts of the leaders of the German resistance movement against Hitler to work with the allied powers to overthrow the Nazi regime. Missie, a Russian refugee, became an associate of Adam von Trott and others in the resistance group run from the German Foreign Ministry. The book is replete with first hand observations of historic events. This, for instance, about the Katyn massacre: “I have seen the confidential report sent by von Papen, the German ambassador in Ankara. He had authorised a member of his staff to become chummy with a Polish diplomatic representative in Turkey who, in his turn, is a friend of Steve Early’s, President Roosevelt’s special representative there. Roosevelt has expressed the wish to receive the full, unadulterated story – a thing he is, apparently, unable to to do in the States because his entourage (Morgenthau?) intercept and suppress any report favorable to the unfavorable to the Soviet Union.” [October 24, 1943 entry.] The entire books is suffused with a sense of absolute incomprehension and bafflement on the part of the resistance leadership with respect to the attitude of the allied powers towards the resistance movement and its efforts to remove Hitler.

  8. I found the name of “Churchill’s closest personal advisor” whom Jeffery thinks was a Communist.
    “In one publication written by a famous Allied soldier who had personal contact with the man in question, I quote:

    ‘The motives of Major Desmond Morton have remained the greatest unsolved mystery of all my experiences of the war. I learned after that Ronald Jeffery and I were not his only victims’ — end of quote.

    It is not a pleasure to write that Desmond Morton, later Sir Desmond, was an Intelligence officer, and closest war time personal adviser to Winston Churchill.

    Small wonder that my Law of Possibilities will not leave me in peace. Insomnia to ponder could be worthwhile to many people. I often wonder how many people helped and guided Philby?”

    From the internet:~
    Morton bought a house only 3 miles from Churchill’s and was a regular visitor, much like Harry Hopkins with Roosevelt. Morton was seconded to the Foreign Office in 1919 where he was head of the Secret Intelligence Service’s Section V, dealing with counter-Bolshevism.

    A Hornets nest…

  9. As a Swede, I hadn’t planned to read American Betrayal. But I changed my mind.

    I havn’t finished reading the book yet, but I have a question: Is there any Pole at GoV who has read the book? I guess most of the Poles have known the truth about the Katyn massacre for decades.

    According to my meaning, “The Betrayal of Poland” could be a subtitle of the book.
