"Stalinism" is a useful term for the totalitarian left -- even to the left itself. It's one word they haven't been able to chew up, gulp down, and transform into its opposite. They still know what "Stalinist" means, even after generations of new names for the same community agitators: "The New Left," "hippies," "Black Panthers," "youthful radicals," "idealistic students," "feminists," "the workers," "black nationalists," "Third World socialists," "the wretched of the earth," "Green Party," "Gay activists," "LGBT," "Global Warming," "peace and freedom party," "eco activists," "civil rights campaigners," "post-modernists," "gender studies," "J Street," "Bolivarismo," "ACORN," "undocumented workers," "Moveon.org," "Liberation Theology" -- there must be hundreds and hundreds of front labels for the Same-Old, Same-Old. They make up new ones all the time. This year's fashionable lefty cult is called ... "progressivism!" ....MORE WHO KNOW WHERE BODIES ARE BURIED: "Castro Lives" and "PIGS “R” US."
Stalinism is no stranger to the American left. It is part of its very being. Every time another old Stalinist dies, the New York Times has a crying fit, telling us what a sweetheart the bloody-minded old fanatic really was. That's all you really need to know about the New York Times.
At some point you have to conclude that the left knows exactly how bloody and destructive it really is. Sure, a lot of the brainwashed followers live in deep denial, but the big names know. Chomsky knows where the bodies are buried, and he knows where he wants to have the next Gulag. So does Jimmy Carter, another peace-loving fan of Hamas and Hezb'allah. So does Obama. They know, they know. They are not innocent.
