I don’t know if they are now. I don’t know if they still have POW camps. I am relating an experience that he had in 1949-1951. At that time, reeducation and indoctrination were part of the Chinese Prison Camp experience. We have a couple of artifacts that he kept from his time there. First is a menu and guest list from a formal dinner in Nanking, before it was taken by the Communists. The second item is the blanket he had in the camps. He always said that those blankets were life for the prisoners. There were always more prisoners than blankets. If you did not have one, you froze to death.
He really is one. Good call I was reading his timeline, he isn’t even American. Uses the word “Moslem” and “puff” in high volume. That is a Brit thing. Never heard an American use the word puff, or that spelling. Good call, these false flag trolls trick me often.
This is what happens when you indoctrinate students into Marxist conflict theory. You can’t incessantly push critical theory, critical race theory, etc and then not have that rub off on impressionable students. Then again, maybe that was the intention all along.
Which is why we need to elect Trump. He’ll get rid of political correctness, the intimidation, the shakedowns, and the witch hunts that accompany them. And there will be more jobs for Americans not illegals or foreign workers. Obozo is doubling down now and Clinton would triple down if elected.
The sixties radicals became tenured professors. Now they mass produce young Maoists who’ll relentlessly lash out at “capitalism/patriarchy/classism/white supremacy/etc.” No pretext is too trifling or trivial, from imaginary “microaggressions” to benevolent Halloween costumes. Anything and everything becomes an excuse to denounce the system.
To quote the book Subversives: The FBI’s War on Student Radicals and Reagan’s Rise to Power: “Starting in Hollywood in the 1940s, Ronald Reagan developed a special relationship with the FBI. He became an FBI informer, reporting other actors whom he suspected of subversive activities, and later, when he became president of the Screen Actors Guild, the FBI had wide access to the guild’s information on various actors. At one point, the guild turned over information on 54 actors it was investigating as possible subversives — so the FBI viewed Reagan as an extremely cooperative source in Hollywood. He was far more active than we know from previously released FBI records. As a result of this, Hoover repaid him with personal and political favors later.”
Complicating a lot of that is that the FBI frequently infiltrated such protests and groups. Hoover thought that free speech movements were part of some Communist plot. To look at the comments here, sounds like that attitude still prevails. The FBI had fake reporters plant ideas and shape public opinion, plant stories for real reporters, and worked with Reagan to fire the president of Berkeley.
So here we are, with the biggest wannabe TV news channel in the U.S. full of Reagan worshipers catering to a party of people throwing Reagan’s name around like he’s a saint. They’ve spent years claiming colleges are out of touch and teach evil critical thinking skills that indoctrinate the youth into liberalism. And now, suddenly, it’s all a callback to the days when people thought free speech was a communist plot. Reagan called the protesters fascists, too.
I went to school at the Air Force Academy and Iowa State back in the 1970s. Oddly enough, there were no leftist protestors demonstrating on campus at the Blue Zoo. Likewise, at ISU, there was not even a trace of the political correctness you see now. I don’t recall any radical leftist student on campus. There was none of it on campus at Marquette U when i got my MBA there in the 1980s. I began seeing a tiny bit of it at U of North Texas in the 1990s. But then, radical leftism is a luxury pastime for the rich. The workaday colleges I attended were more interested in getting a good job. You need to have no worries about providing for yourself to go about saving the world for socialism. That’s why it seems to have been confined to the most effete factions of the student bodies of rich Ivy League universities. Now, the extremist liberal factions of public universities ape the Ivys in whatever foolish cause they promote like a fad.
If you want to know what the most frustrating thing of having a deep interest in history is, it’s seeing ignorant people do the same things over and over again.
On the contrary, Dartmouth being liberal, even socialist, it is the perfect place for fascist thugs to operate. They feed on the intellectual rot of political correctness.
The National Guard did not fire on the protestors at Kent State for protesting, but rather because they believed themselves under fire. There is still dispute about that.
Certainly Communists and Fascists shared many traits and especially believed in the same methods ,one in a crony capitalism with a socialistic welfare state, the other was a communistic ownership of the means of production ,but in both the state was supreme . Both overemphasized the few differences, but the essential power of the state was the same.
