The Soviet Plan for ‘Ideological Subversion’ Describes Our Current Turmoil

Source: American Thinker.

By coincidence the cite, published today, is apropos of one of yesterday’s discussion threads which explored the question, “What is driving the behavior of the protesters?”

The question is compelling because we have seen many perversities: in the name of racial grievance, black neighborhoods and businesses burned; statues commemorating abolitionists toppled, for example. I attribute these things to Marxism as an emerging political faction in America.

Yuri Bezmenov is one of the reasons I think so. The cite describes him as “a former KGB spy and state media propagandist who defected to Canada in 1970.”

        1. You didn’t explain what you mean by your comment, or how it relates to the subject of my post, so I reject your comment as a summary of the ideas I set out to convey. If you have something relevant to say, I’ll be happy to respond.

          1. Look Mr. Semantics, if you can’t answer the question as posed (it is pretty straight forward, IMO).

            You appear to deny the interference by the Russians in 2016 and continuing today. But you actually post items that lead one to believe you DO believe it. SO which is it? Did and are the Russians interfering in our process and society or not?

            Bezmenov’s description of “ideological subversion” was published in the 1980s. Do you see some connection to the 2016 election?

  1. The opinion in AT is just that.

    For those that think that all liberals are communist wannabees is driving such thought.

    Better policing, less racial bias, affordable healthcare and education and a much improvement justice system are not going to destroy us, as conservatives would have us believe.

    Millions of demonstrators worldwide, a relative handful of violent actions by a minority of people is not representative of the protests goals.

    What is a bit telling is that it seems most of the violence is from white supemacists, not Antifa. So the right wingnuts are trying to instill the communist plot to destroy us.

    IMHO

      No, if “destroying us” were the test. The point is that Marxism very well could destroy us because it is incompatible with the principles that founded our society.

      1. Marxism is the bugaboo that’s been around since the Red Scare days.

        The Soviet Union collapsed in the late eighties to be replaced by a gangster style oligarchy that has no interest in communism.

        So where is this threat coming from now?

        According to Bezmenov, the “threat” depends on where we stand in the process of ideological subsversion. I’d say part of it consists of people who pretend there was never any threat.

          It seems to me YOU are one of those who pretend there was or is no threat. You can’t have it both ways.
