Goals of the Communist Party (1963)

From the Congressional Record, excerpts from "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen.
How many of these have been achieved? How many are still under way? It never ceases to amaze me, the frank endorsement of these objectives that I hear at BBQs. Many of these things were drilled into me in high school. They are in red italic, my comments in blue. (I skipped a few anchronistic items)

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war. Reference nuclear freeze movement.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war. Reference nuclear freeze movement.

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

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war. Reference most favored nation status granted by the US to China. Pushed by both Cliton and Bush. Al Gore has made several mysterious trips to mainland China.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N. Done deal. Hell, Al Gore practically lives there.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress. Common tactic, reference North Korea.

11. 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.) Wow!

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths. Hell, they're trying to eliminate the Pledge of Allegiance in schools.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. One down, one to go.

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

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. Done deal.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers. Done deal. They got the professional ones, too.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack. Done deal. The ironic thing is that the wide spread practice of abortion has mitigated this. Now, the christians and muslims are still having babies so the next attack will be on diminishing the legal rights of parents.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions. Done deal.

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

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." Done deal. Especially visible inside the Roman Catholic Churches that undergo architectural renovation, i.e. wreckovation.

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art." Done deal.

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press. Done deal.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. Done deal. Internet is the capstone.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy." Boston and San Francisco are Meccas for this. All public schools in Massachusetts will now be forced to do this. Reference "Heather Has Two Mommies" and " King and King."

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." Done deal. Mainline protestant churches have been wiped out and the Roman Catholic Church is heavily infiltrated.

28. 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." Done deal.

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. Done deal.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man." Done deal, visit any college campus. I suspect most honors American history gets taught this way. In lower levels, absolutely nothing is taught.

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. Done deal, now the emphasis is on Commie China who have taken up the mantle of promoting World Communism.

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

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

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities. Never knew there was one. Impossible now because it have to convict almost all Democrats and half the Republicans.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI. Done deal. The FBI is inept.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions. Done deal.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business. Done deal. Note Target, Ford, Google.

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

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals. Done deal. They have have also altered accepted classifications of homosexuality as a mental illness. Next, paedophilia will be liberated as an accepted practice.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. Done deal. Note the imposition of "no-fault 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. Done deal. Note ADHD craze, explansion of "day care" and the tax subsidization of it.

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. Done deal. Note the new "Kill Bush" movie.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government. I guess they flopped in this one.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal. Thank you, Jimmah Carter. Now the Communist Chinese own it.

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. In the works. Ruth Bader Ginsberg has cited World Court rulings in her U.S. Supreme Court decisions.

Very nicley done. That's very scary. All this is totally true, and the much of it is endorsed by the democratic party indirectly.

Awesome post.

Oh come on! A communist conspiracy! Communism is dead in the water and has been since the Soviet Union collapsed. China is no longer a communist nation despite being controlled by a communist party. Capitalism reigns supreme in modern China. Or is Cuba maybe going to go on the rampage?

Has it occurred to you that maybe you're suffering from paranoia?
