Military Review

If gentlemen lose, they change the rules of the game.

If gentlemen lose, they change the rules of the game. What is a "witch hunt"? Under that name in history included political persecution and repression, which the Communists and leftist sympathizers in the USA were subjected to after the Second World War, in the 50s.


After the victory over Hitler, the USSR and Stalin had such moral superiority, and our country's economy was recovering so quickly that Washington had a real fear of losing from the competition between the powers. What then began to do in the "citadel of democracy"? With Khrushchev’s help to explain to the whole world that Stalin was not the liberator of Europe from the Nazi ghouls, but the “bloody Stalinist regime,” the states can only after the death (poisoning) of the USSR head. It will be possible to undermine the moral superiority of the Soviet Union much later, along with the erosion of the country's economic base - the Union will begin to purchase grain precisely under Khrushchev.

Unable to compete honestly, Washington is beginning to change the rules of its democracy. Just as the IMF today is rewriting the rules of the economic game for the sake of keeping Ukraine afloat.

“9 February 1950, a little-known Republican senator from Wisconsin, Joseph McCarthy, spoke at the Republican Women's Club in the city of Wheeling in West Virginia with a speech denouncing communism. In particular, he said that the US State Department is simply filled with Communists. It was from this speech that the McCarthy movement began, nicknamed "Witch hunt".

And the persecution of those who thought otherwise, who felt sympathy for the USSR and communism, began. At the same time, NO ONE today's “human rights midfielder” does not recall this, and does not cast doubt on the “democratic values” of the United States, but diligently delves into the problematic nodes of Russian history. The fact that at this moment in the States, black and white citizens did not study together and did not even travel in the same transport, etc. and so on (racial segregation persisted until the 70 of the twentieth century) - these are “little things” that the liberals never recall. And if they are reminded of this, they deftly try to turn the “minus” into a “plus”, talking about how great it is that the United States got rid of the remnants of the past and made such a step forward. After all, they now have a black president! At the same time, the name of the American heads of state, in which blacks were separated from whites, is not covered with mud for it. With regard to the USSR-Russia, the “midfielders” of human rights and liberals of all stripes have a completely different approach - we must repent before everyone, smear Stalin with black paint and be guilty in everything. Although the repressions in the Soviet Union ended many decades ago (mostly in 1939), ended much earlier than the time when racial inequality ended in the United States. And since the 1985 year - that is, 30 (!) Years in our country do not put in prison many of those who should be sent there.

So, what happened in the United States in the middle of the twentieth century, when democracy supposedly triumphed there? For understanding, we will use the material absolutely liberal and "independent" editions of "Kommersant".

McCarthyism got its name from the name of Joseph McCarthy, who was the US senator from the state of Wisconsin in 1947 — 1957 and acted as the main fighter against the “red menace”.

After the Second World War, the United States feared that communism, represented by the USSR, could gain world domination, since some European countries were already under the influence of Stalin. In this regard, in 1947, the 33 th United States President Harry Truman ordered an inspection of all state employees.

9 February 1950, Senator Joseph McCarthy began the fight against communism, delivering a speech in which he listed more than 200 State Department employees to the Communist Party. Some time later, 3, thousands of US officials, added to this list.

Within a few years, McCarthyism spread to all areas of American society. Only in the first months about 800 people were dismissed, 600 still resigned themselves, without waiting for any decisions. In addition to the state apparatus, many famous figures, many of whom were also dismissed, condemned, or blacklisted, were subjected to “purge”.

One of the above cases: in 1953, the American corporation General Electric announced the dismissal of all employees of the Communists.
In those years, about 140 communists, dozens of union leaders, many scientists, such as Robert Oppenheimer (pictured), William DuBois, directors, actors and other representatives of Hollywood and the cultural elite of the country - “Hollywood Top Ten” visited the dock in the dock.
According to the Communist Control Act 1954 of the Year, the Communist Party was declared illegal and deprived of all the rights and privileges that other parties had. In addition, the Communists were forbidden to obtain a passport.

In Congress and in the US government at the time of the rise McCarthy preferred not to argue with him. Even the future US President Dwight Eisenhower, speaking in 1952, spoke about his community of interests with the senator.

McCarthy later became head of the Senate Investigative Subcommittee. Together with the Committee on Anti-American Activities of Representatives of the US Congress and the FBI, as well as having the support of Vice-President Richard Nixon, he was engaged in checking the personnel of government agencies and numerous controversial testimonies about officials' alleged ties with the Communists.
As Senator McCarthy, he advocated strengthening the Cold War, adopting anti-democratic and anti-labor legislation, inciting military and anti-communist hysteria. In the 1954 year, when congressional hearings were broadcast on nationwide television, it became clear that McCarthy’s activities discredited the highest US government bodies.

In 1955, McCarthy introduced his latest resolution to the Senate, which was rejected by 77 in a vote of four to four. Such an unexpected turn of events greatly influenced the senator, who began to drink a lot, which led to death from hepatitis in 1957.

      The comparison is very original and generally true:

      With Khrushchev’s help, the United States can explain to the whole world that Stalin was not the liberator of Europe from Nazi ghouls, but the “bloody Stalinist regime” only after the death (poisoning) of the head of the USSR. It will be possible to undermine the moral superiority of the Soviet Union much later, along with undermining the country's economic base - the Union will begin to purchase grain under Khrushchev.

        The neo-Trotskyist Khrushchev, with his idiotic economic policy, is the main culprit in the collapse of the socialist system. Everything else, including Gorbachev, is secondary.

          There has never been such support for the development of space technology as under Khrushchev. Neither before nor after. And he again abolished serfdom. What kind of neo-Trotskyism, what kind of collapse of the socialist system are we talking about? Socialism is when the state’s economy develops for the benefit of a particular person. Under Khrushchev, people from barracks were massively relocated to new apartments with hot water and a separate toilet. In China, by the way, there has never been socialism. They immediately went from war communism to capitalism. China was backward - the Chinese lived poorly. China has become strong and rich - the Chinese live in poverty. Because they did not have their own Khrushchev.

            In general, to relocate people from barracks, these were plans developed under I.V. Stalin. And, that’s what Khrushchev did, he bureaucratized so much, everything he reached for. Party leaders, not business executives, became at the helm of the state.

            The housing program did not begin under Khrushchev; under him, the rate of relocation to new housing even slightly decreased. At the same time, Khrushchev significantly simplified the projects of houses, removed the "decorations", lowered the ceilings, etc., the houses became "Khrushchevs".

            Do we live richly? Khrushchev laid a mine under the economy created under Stalin. The space program has been created for decades, and in order to be in 1961. Gagarin flew into space - 10 years before that, it was necessary to create industries and a scientific base.

      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
      To completely play according to your own rules, you need to build up a lot of muscles, and not only military, but also economic, grocery, social, etc. All this as a whole is called the complete independence of the state. And before that. Unfortunately there is still a very long way to go.

    Over the course of several years, McCarthyism has spread to all walks of life in American society. In the first months alone, about 800 people were laid off, another 600 resigned themselves, without waiting for any decisions.

    McCarthyism in the United States has survived to the present, has become the basis of their policies.

    With Khrushchev’s help, the United States can explain to the whole world that Stalin was not the liberator of Europe from Nazi ghouls, but the “bloody Stalinist regime” only after the death (poisoning) of the head of the USSR. It will be possible to undermine the moral superiority of the Soviet Union much later, along with undermining the country's economic base - the Union will begin to purchase grain under Khrushchev.

    The neo-Trotskyist Khrushchev, with his idiotic economic policy, is the main culprit in the collapse of the socialist system. Everything else, including Gorbachev, is secondary.

    I.V. Stalin was a humanist. If the purges of the upper ranks lasted even at least until 1940, maybe it was different. Not one Khrushchev, ruined the socialist system, as a team.

    Anyone can predict. And only a real expert can explain what prevented the predictions from coming true. The president said a drop in oil prices is boosting the economy - much like losing weight. You have not tried to lose weight from 115 kilograms to 32?

      This is something to die, a strange sentence.

    The USA is a child of the Fed. An extra example of what money is made with the brain.

    Shtatniks were afraid not so much of communism, but of justice, when all their magnates and billionaires would have disappeared, having earned their capital on grief and lies

    It is not about the names of the "exceptional democrasts". It is not so important who exactly voices the "great American dream". The US and the Fed are hands and head of the same entity. The Fed is trying to completely subjugate the whole world and the United States helps to do by force what money and promises cannot do.
    This is what remains the unchanged rule in "gentleman's" games.
    They consider all other rules in the form of explanations and amendments to rule No. 1. And the goal of the game is that the USA and the Fed should win at any hand,
    And according to the opinion, the result of the game should look like a well-known monologue of the Kaa boa constrictor, i.e., - listen to me, banderlogs, ... - come closer - and so on. with a predictable ending.
    Only this rolls with real banderlogs. With people - we'll see.

    He always said. If our people begin to live better, then STALIN will be as current only as a historical character and not as a pill for treating the disease.

    Changing the rules too often leads to lawlessness.
    Now we have such interesting things unfolding,
    that historical articles and reading are not so exciting.

    The situation in economics and politics has changed radically for us. It is time for fundamental decisions and fundamental changes within the country. If the leadership does not dare to reform, or confine itself to half measures, the kirdyk is our dream of the independence and independence of Russia.

    (Unable to compete honestly, Washington begins to change the rules of its democracy.)

    All nations that considered themselves "exceptional" have done this in the past, but how did they end up?

    Dear friends and colleagues, I strongly and strongly recommend reading the article by Mikhail Weller posted (oddly enough) on Echo of Moscow ...
    http://echo.msk.ru/programs/just_think/1691278-echo/
    It is very strange how the administration of this radio station missed this ...
    Meaning: Europe and migrants.
    Even on "echo" they are afraid not to "provang" during ...
    It would be nice for our administration to post what was said on VO, because Weller sometimes gives out "monumental" ... Example .2006 ... The book "The Great Last Chance" --- "Do our rulers have neither the strength nor the will to return Crimea and the eastern regions of Ukraine, which are torn to Russia ... "

    McCarthy was "helpful." Especially for China! laughing
    The great rocket launcher Qian Xuesen, the son of the Kuomintang general, a descendant of Emperor Ji Zhuan Xu, lived in the USA - of course, he is never a communist ...

    In the witch hunt that began in the USA in the 1950s, the FBI accused Qian Xuesen of “complicity with the Communists,” referring to a 1938 Communist Party document containing his name. Qian was removed from secret missile-related work and was actually put under house arrest. Two weeks later, the scientist announced his intention to return to China, wrote an appeal to the Prime Minister of the State Council of the PRC Zhou Enlai, and on September 17, 1955 he went home. Well, then you understand: Thanks to McCarthy, in addition to nuclear weapons, China also received delivery vehicles - since Mao, not being a fool, did not send him to a concentration camp, but created a special "for him". Research institutes and even allowed to create his own opposition party (Democratic League of China).
    Qian led the Chinese space program and became known as "Father of the Chinese cosmonautics." He prepared a galaxy of Chinese scientists, who provided significant success for China in space exploration. Grandfather lived happily ever after (as long as 54 years — and lived to be 98 years old), was buried in the revolutionary Babaoshan cemetery in Beijing, Hu Jintao, Jiang Zemin, Wu Bango, Wen, Jiabao, Jia Qinglin, Li Changchun attended the farewell ceremony , Xi Jinping, Li Keqiang, He Guoqiang and Zhou Yongkang ...
