Commies For Peace, I Mean War - Uh, No, I Mean The Struggle, Which Is A War That, Uh, Leads To Peace

Here's a long article on the far left's bastardization of the concept of peace, courtesy of David Horowitz's Frontpagemag.com. Horowitz is probably the most politically active "ex-smoker" of the American far left.

Radical Son is the story of his journey from Red Diaper Baby to the neo-con right. From there I read Sidney Hook's autobiography, written by a staunch Socialist who fought his whole life against the cancer of Communism (In Practice). In that book he details how in the 1950s, under orders from Joseph Stalin, Soviet front groups in the US changed their names to sound less threatening. As a made up example since the book was from the lie-berry, The People's Committee To Crush America became the Happy Time Balloon Animal Puppy Parade Folks.

I have no problem with people who disagree with me as long as they mean well and try not to be hypocritical. I do have a problem with those who fall in line with this famous tale of insanity:

Then came the 1939 Molotov-Ribbentrop Non-Aggression Pact between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, which pushed the American communists firmly back on the anti-war track and squarely behind the America Firsters. Their renewed commitment to pacifism didn’t last long however. They flipped again on June 22, 1941—the day Hitler invaded the Soviet Union.
