Mankind, to the left, is on an inevitable march toward the victory of communism, socialism, or whatever sobriquet is in vogue to describe the totalitarian faith. Those who, on the other hand, understand freedom, see men of free will making choices and taking actions that can affect the nature of society for better or worse. Individual responsibility as opposed to amoral inevitability. Adolf Hitler reflected the belief in inevitability when, as the blitzkrieg raged through France, he was reported to have said that he felt like a "sleepwalker" moving across Europe. There was no personal responsibility, only this strange belief in an irresistible force of history. After the struggle, according to the socialist faith, the Homo Sovietica, or the Ubermench will emerge depending upon which brand dominates. In their insufferable righteousness and "scientific" certainty, they excuse and often revel in violence as a means toward their "great leap forward" into the progressive wonderland. Their goal is world socialist government, controlled by the "scientific" experts acting in the name of the ignorant but grateful masses. As the Soviets used to say, "you've got to crack a few eggs to make an omelet."
This spirit of inevitability animated the pro-communist Americans who sold out China to the Communists in 1949. Their treason against America, the nation that provided these monsters with comfort and opulence, often through the largess of the taxpayers who employed many of them, is compounded by the fact that the Communist takeover of China under Mao, 1949, resulted in the most murderous and oppressive regime in the history of man. According to the recently released Black Book of Communism, left-wing Communist China murdered over 60 million of it's own people. American villains aided and abetted a regime worse than that of Hitler in terms of the sheer volume and magnitude of human death and suffering which continues to this day. Their support for the brutal Communists is the darkest chapter in American history. Their insane actions resulted in war in Korea, Vietnam, and in the quagmire we find ourselves in today.
General Chiang Kai-shek, our valiant Chinese ally against the Japanese imperialists in World War II, presented a formidable obstacle to the plans of Stalin and his American stooges. Chiang's reputation would be tarnished by a vicious and unrelenting propaganda campaign of lies. Chiang was forced to fight a two front war against both the Japanese and against Mao Tse-tung and his gang of Moscow educated, funded, and armed criminals.
Mao promised "agrarian reform" which meant that farmers, business owners, and anyone else not deemed politically correct would receive a show trial which was usually followed by the amputation of their hands. Pro-communist American China experts such as John Stewart Service, Edgar Snow, Agnes Smedley, and others, were given an amazing amount of press attention as they spun tales of the greatness of Mao and his reform. These Americans were almost as responsible for inventing Mao as Stalin.
At the Yalta Conference, Jan-Feb 1945, the Soviets, which had maintained neutrality against the Japanese while Chaing and America bore the brunt of the pacific front, were given a green light to jump in against Japan at the last minute to sop up the spoils. Stalin's spy, Alger Hiss, sat at the elbow of President Franklin D. Roosevelt during this conference. The Soviets would be allowed to seize Port Arthur, Dairen, the Kurile Islands, and Outer Mongolia. The Soviets, 1944-1945, would be furnished with over a billion dollars worth of American arms and supplies in the far east while Congressionally approved supplies to our ally Chaing would be held up by certain elements in our State and Treasury departments. The Soviets would enter the war against Japan only after the dropping of the atomic bomb at Hiroshima. Billions in American and confiscated Japanese arms would be promptly turned over by the Soviets to the Communist Mao.
The noose was tightened around the neck of free China when, 1945, American Secretary. of the Treasury Harry Dexter White, a Communist spy, refused to release previously promised and congressionally approved gold supplies to China.
This resulted in a wild inflation that wrecked havoc on a Chinese economy that had borne the brunt of 8 years of war. Stalinist traitors, buried in our government, persuaded the US to immediately pull all allied forces out of China which helped Stalin and his quislings. These same traitors persuaded the US to cut off all arms supplies to Chiang. Huge stockpiles of materiel in India would be dumped into the Gulf of Bengal.
In 1946, General George Catlett Marshall was dispatched to China by President Harry Truman as a special envoy. Marshall proceeded to demand that Chiang form a coalition government with Mao. Marshall would negotiate a series of truces that served to save the communists from immanent defeat while he slapped an arms embargo against Chiang. Chiang ran out of arms while Stalin kept Mao steadily supplied. Congress approved $125 million in military aid to China in 1948 but the Truman administration was able to stop the shipment until it was too late. Communist propaganda nests such as the Institute of Pacific Relations led the pro Mao charge in the US media. A Senate investigation stated that "The Institute of Pacific Relations was a vehicle used by the Communists to orient American Far Eastern policies toward Communist objectives. Members of the small core of officials and staff members who controlled IPR were either Communist or pro-Communist."
On Jan. 25, 1949, congressman John F. Kennedy summed up the situation as follows:
"Mr. Speaker, over this weekend we have learned the extent of the disaster that has befallen China and the United States. The responsibility for the failure of our foreign policy in the Far East rests squarely with the White House and the Department of State. The continued insistence aid would not be forthcoming, unless a coalition government with the Communists were formed, was a crippling blow to the Nationalist Government...This is the tragic story of China, whose freedom we once fought to preserve. What our young men had saved, our diplomats and our President have frittered away."
