What am I missing here?

Don’t you find it strange that not even the most intellectual political commentators make mention of the words communist and communism?

My narrative today is directed to all of you, friends, and followers, in a clamor for your help as I am baffled, befuddled, confused, and ask if anyone of you can explain, what am I missing here? The fact that I was born in Cuba and the fact that I had a first-hand experience with Fidel Castro’s Communist Revolution in our island, I thought, qualified me to know a communist when I see one and/or able to smell communism a mile away.

I came to this country when I was fourteen years old, and, growing up, we all could tell, we were, in fact, living in the greatest Constitutional Democracy known to humanity, bar none. That was until a cultural revolution labeled “The Civil Rights” movement changed this country forever. The movement which began in the late 1940’s and ended in the late 1960’s, was justified and meant well seeking for racial equality which had long been denied to Black people in the nation.

Regretfully though, the pendulum of racial justice, swung so much so that, the so-called ‘equality’ in issues dealing with color and race, went as far as advocating for a “class war”, which paved the way and actually culminated in the election of an outright communist in 2008 by the name of Barack Hussein Obama – one of the many blacks who actually resented what this nation had done to those of his race.

Now, here is my problem. Notwithstanding the very obvious reality that we now have a full-blown Marxist /Communist administration in power and a full-blown Marxist /Communist Democratic Party, nonetheless, I seldom if ever hear mention of the words Marxism and/or communism mentioned, which, to me, makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Nowadays, you may have noticed, you hear labels such as “Left Wing,” you hear “Socialist or Socialism,” you hear “Progressive,” and “Liberal,” all of which have conveniently substituted the words “communist and communism.”

Don’t you find this intriguing? Don’t you find it strange that not even the most intellectual political commentators make mention of the words communist and communism? Notably, all the pseudonyms now being used, all of them independently and/or combined can be defined under the umbrella of communism, as much as all of them imply political ideologies that suggest social equality, and egalitarianism, and all of them oppose social hierarchies such as those that govern capitalism. All of them advocate social reform and that “the “community” should regulate the means of production as a whole, which is the root of “communism.”

Meantime, communism, the system, the ideology, in its simplest and most unadulterated definition is a political theory derived from Karl Marx which advocates class war in which all property is publicly owned, and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs. In other words, as far as I am concerned, correct me if I am wrong, there is absolutely no difference whatsoever in the principal ideologies of communism and all the principal ideologies of the preferred substitutes. The question is, why the omission in the use of the word communism?

I have come up with certain assumptions on the answer[s] to this puzzling dilemma, but I certainly would like to get your valuable input in this mystifying controversy. I will start my dissertation with the major assumption that, the words “communist” and “communism,” for all literate persons with a certain minimum level of political knowhow, carry a rather negative connotation.

Depending on the level of education and/or the level of intellect, or both, these words denote or imply [the] absolute worse political system known to man, bar none. Suffice it say, the death toll associated to communism is upwards of 100 million people. This statistic alone should be enough to scare the living daylights out of everyone. As such, I do presume that, those behind the cultural revolution that took place here in the U.S., made it a point, to use some of those more palatable substitutes so as to make the entry-level of this system a more appetizing alternative to our capitalism.

Assuming this theory is correct, then, why do not, those who knew better, still to this day, dare not call spade a spade. Could it be that, for the most part, those that knew better also fell prey to a gargantuan indoctrination crusade that set out to literally eliminate these words from all political lexicons?

While I am certain that, in a nation like ours, with serious literacy problems, the words communist and communism are just foreign to many in mainstream America, I have a problem with the more educated staying away from such a simple truth, now, at a time when that these two terms best describe what is really taking place in this nation today.

What is really curious to me is that in the decade of the 1950’s the nation, as a whole, was not only very conscious of communists and communism infiltrating in the nation at the most elemental levels imaginable, but went as far as supporting and endorsing a vociferous campaign against alleged communists in the U.S. government and other institutions carried out under Senator Joseph McCarthy in the period from 1950-54, albeit a campaign which was also, at one time, fully supported by the F.B.I. of the time and its Director J. Edgar Hoover. Ironically, this is the same F.B.I. that today serves as an arm of the communist revolution.

I find it quite coincidental that, in a span of 50 years or so, we went from being obsessive / compulsive about communism, to a complete disregard for this system. Could this be, somehow, related to the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991?

For the agnostics among you, in my book “The Beginning of the End,” which I wrote in 2012, I go to extreme lengths in telling the world that understanding the ideological roots of ex-president Barack Obama were essential to understanding America’s future. This is a man, mind you, that, since a very early age, was influenced by the likes of Frank Marshall Davis – a renown Black journalist who joined the Communist Party USA [CPUSA].

Community organizer Saul Alinsky also influenced Obama. For those of you who might have not been acquainted with this man, Saul Alinsky, metaphorically speaking, this man was to American Communism, probably what Karl Marx is to World Communism. Bottom line of my story today, anytime I listen to the news, and I hear the words Socialism, Progressives, Liberal or Left, I feel this as an insult to the intellect. Moreover, I feel betrayed by those who do know better. Wish I knew why they do it?

In my humble opinion by not calling a spade a spade, I feel they are doing a disfavor to grassroots Americans, who may not know any better and might even think that these pseudonyms are legitimate alternatives to our Constitutional Republic – greatest infamy that has made possible for communists to even elect some of them to the highest post in the land. For the love of God, help me understand why this is happening. What say you? God save us and God save the United States of America.
