To The Daily Sun,
Surviving the 1960s with your mental facilities intact gave one a lot to be thankful for. If you feel a little wiser for not getting caught up in the hippie or the communist propaganda movement that inflicted our college campuses and the black communities, you are.
Civil unrest today has many of the overtones of those past days. They are all too familiar. Little has changed. Scientific Mobocracy, a communist technique designed against our police, is still used today. The 1964 New York City riots was a well-organized effort conducted by the Communist Party. Pamphlets were scattered throughout the city in hopes to discredit and neutralize the police.
On June 13, 1961, the Senate Internal Security Sub-Committee heard the testimony of Lyman B. Kirkpatrick Jr., inspector general on the staff of the director of the Central Intelligence Agency. He testified concerning a instructional manual for Scientific Mob-Making: "It has been distributed to Soviet agents and Communist Party activities throughout the free world. It included diversionary tactics, how to badger the police, and ways to distract the police."
Mob psychology is used efficiently in conditioning the youth with propaganda that once a signal is given, violence erupts spontaneously. J. Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI published a special report titled "Communist Target-Youth."
"Recent world events clearly reveal that world communism has launched a massive campaign to capture and maneuver youth and student groups," (the report said). Following the riots in San Francisco in May 1960, the Communist Party congratulated themselves for " the initiative and leadership they displayed at all stages of the demonstration."
Kirkpatrick testified how Soviet agents use effective methods to downgrade the police profession and use agents or sympathizers in the press to harp on certain themes. Another method to paralyze police action is to get communist fellow travelers into political office. In doing so, they are not known as communists, but as members of a political party. They then go to work to "rule or ruin" police services in their area.
The FBI stated that mobs pass through three stages. (1) an incident in which the police were attacked while performing their duty. (2) almost on signal, violence suddenly flared across an area, as it did in Watts. During the second stage the cry was "get Whitey." Most of the local population fled in terror to their homes. (3) the mob intensified their fury on the residences and burned 787 buildings, killed 37 police officers, property damage estimated to be 50 million.
Liberals and left-wing establishment cried McCarthyism when Mayor Samuel W. Yorty blamed the communist leadership. The truth surfaced in an article printed in the Los Angeles Herald Examiner on Oct. 7, 1965. Michael Laski, of the Communist Party boasted that his group had spent two years "toward agitation of the uprising" in Watts.
Nineteen-sixty college campuses were invaded with a new tolerance for communism under the guise of "academic freedom." Gus Hall, a communist agitator, called for taking over the civil rights movement and creating a revolution. War against our police commenced under two fronts: 1) Overwhelm the police, and 2) set up a machinery to paralyze the police.
The propaganda of hate toward our police ensued. It had a design. In 1948 Dr. Bella Dodd, a Communist Party member, informed the FBI that the plan was to establish police review boards. She stated the idea originated in the 1930s in hopes that communist agents could infiltrate and control the boards in hopes of "punishing the police until they were intimidated into a benumbed, neutralized, impotent and non-functioning agency."
Hall boasted in 1961 that communist cells had infiltrated every segment of American life. Mob violence erupted between 1961 and 1963 in major cities. Senator James O. Eastman, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, spoke in the Senate on July 22, 1964, and named the communists and their fronts who had initiated the riots in Cleveland, San Francisco, Chicago, New York and St. Louis.
Objectives were leaked by the party's hierarchy:
— Use the civil rights demonstrations as a means of provoking violence and riots in targeted cities.
— Blame the riots on "police brutality," confusing the public and spread "hate the police" propaganda.
— Frighten and isolate the Negro voter in hopes that they will vote in a radical bloc for candidates who will scrap the Constitution and set up a "new order."
— Demand civilian police review boards in hopes of removing the police from under the discipline and control of the people's elected officials.
Subversive aspects of the Communist Party focus on two efforts: 1) Penetrate and control every phase of the political, economic and cultural life of a country, 2) The militant part work on agitation, demonstration, insurrections, riots and rebellion.
" ... always we have a clear and precise aim towards which we strive, for one of the great merits of communism is that nothing is left to chance." — Joseph Stalin
