Political correctness has run amok. Newspeak and double talk are rampant in political discourse and modern media. If you don’t agree that the US should let anyone who wishes to come to our country do so at will (“are Americans afraid of widows and orphans?” when at least 80% of middle east “refugees” are military aged males) they immediately label you a hateful, racist, bigot no different than a KKK lynch mob participant. If you don’t agree that a Catholic Priest should have to marry a same sex couple at their request, or a little old lady at a bakery should have to make them a cake against her will, you are a homophobic, neanderthal, hate machine. And any “politically incorrect” speech, (which of course is defined by the most left wing, anti-American communists among us) is not tolerated at any level. How much farther from here until we get to our own Red Terror?
Below is a quote from the wiki article on the “Red Terror” (whole article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Terror )The hate modern leftists hurl against society at large is just under this level. Think about it. The communists we have living in our country now are not that much different. The hate they feel for anyone who has more than them is much the same. And the desire to “do whatever it takes” to take what they want from those who don’t “deserve it” is the same. Keep this in mind. This is not a report on what people did in the dark ages to unbelievers or witches in the 1600s or some far flung ancient past. This is what happened in a relatively civilized modern country in the early 1900’s:
“At these times, there were numerous reports that Cheka interrogators utilized torture methods which were, according to Orlando Figes, “matched only by the Spanish Inquisition.” AtOdessa the Cheka tied White officers to planks and slowly fed them into furnaces or tanks of boiling water; in Kharkiv, scalpings and hand-flayings were commonplace: the skin was peeled off victims’ hands to produce “gloves”; the Voronezh Cheka rolled naked people around in barrels studded internally with nails; victims were crucified or stoned to death atDnipropetrovsk; the Cheka at Kremenchuk impaled members of the clergy and buried alive rebelling peasants; in Orel, water was poured on naked prisoners bound in the winter streets until they became living ice statues; in Kiev, Chinese Cheka detachments placed rats in iron tubes sealed at one end with wire netting and the other placed against the body of a prisoner, with the tubes being heated until the rats gnawed through the victim’s body in an effort to escape.
Executions took place in prison cellars or courtyards, or occasionally on the outskirts of town, during the Red Terror and Russian civil war. After the condemned were stripped of their clothing and other belongings, which were shared among the Cheka executioners, they were either machine-gunned in batches or dispatched individually with a revolver. Those killed in prison were usually shot in the back of the neck as they entered the execution cellar, which became littered with corpses and soaked with blood. Victims killed outside the town were moved by truck, bound and gagged, to their place of execution, where they sometimes were made to dig their own graves.
According to Edvard Radzinsky, “it became a common practice to take a husband hostage and wait for his wife to come and purchase his life with her body”.During Decossackization, there were massacres, according to historian Robert Gellately, “on an unheard of scale.” The Pyatigorsk Cheka organized a “day of Red Terror” to execute 300 people in one day, and took quotas from each part of town. According to the Chekist Karl Lander, the Cheka in Kislovodsk, “for lack of a better idea,” killed all the patients in the hospital. In October 1920 alone more than 6,000 people were executed. Gellately adds that Communist leaders “sought to justify their ethnic-based massacres by incorporating them into the rubric of the ‘class struggle'”.
Members of the clergy were subjected to particularly brutal abuse. According to documents cited by the late Alexander Yakovlev, then head of the Presidential Committee for the Rehabilitation of Victims of Political Repression, priests, monks and nuns were crucified, thrown into cauldrons of boiling tar, scalped, strangled, given Communion with melted lead and drowned in holes in the ice. An estimated 3,000 were put to death in 1918 alone.“
