Useful Idiots is a pungent phrase usually attributed to Lenin. They are driven by Pathological Altruism, believing that they know how to run our lives better than us and believing the Western Guilt stories. They are Fanatics who were going to help Lenin conquer the world but illness [ syphilis in all probability ] and death caught up with him first. Perhaps a better term is Dangerous Idiot; they were helping evil. Karl Marx was one of them. Lenin was not stupid enough to believe him, merely quoting him as the occasion arose.
In the event Stalin carried on where Lenin finished. Uncle Joe was not an idiot but he was very useful in the mass murder line, while his idiots were like Judas Goats, leading us to destruction.
There are people and sources who claim that he did not originate the expression. The Wikipedia is one such but then it is a propaganda machine. See what it has to say at useful idiot. For something on their attitude to the truth go to Wikipedia. However Lenin Quoted tells us what Lenin said; it indicates an unrelenting savagery which accords well with the reality.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
C. S. Lewis [ a decent Christian ]
This tells us why the Useful Idiot is so dangerous.
Armand Hammer said:-
Besides myself [ Armand Hammer ] there were two other Americans in our party: A.A. Heller, a wealthy socialist who had become active in the American Communist movement after the Russian Revolution and Miss Lucy Branum, a plucky little social worker and former suffragist who was much taken with the ideals of the Revolution. Both these people were typical of the Western visitors who later came to be known as fellow travellers - bemused idealists who had a great deal of emotional and intellectual difficulty squaring their romantic expectations of the Soviet Union with the exceedingly grim realities.
So that puts fellow travellers in their place. From pp 128-9 Hammer by Armand Hammer & Neil Lyndon
Beveridge was going to sort out the five great evils of society, to wit:- squalor, ignorance, idleness, want and disease. He failed on four at a cost of billions.
Were anti-Fascists who betrayed England to the NKVD. They were very upset when dear old Uncle Joe made a deal with naughty little Adolf. See e.g. the Mitrokhin Archive at page 111 on the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact. The guilty were:-
Kim Philby (cryptonym: Stanley)
Donald Duart Maclean (cryptonym: Homer)
Guy Burgess (cryptonym: Hicks)
Anthony Blunt (cryptonym: Johnson)
John Cairncross (cryptonym: Liszt).
Other possible traitors were:-
Michael Whitney Straight
Victor Rothschild a Jew
Was the editor of The Telegraph aka The Quislinggraph & an officer cadet in 10 PARA as 23957237 Private Hastings. He succeeds in sounding very anti-English, anti-white & Racist. With the likes of him in the Conservative Party we hardly need communists to destroy us.
John Maynard Keynes
Keynes was the Homosexual loud mouth who was going to sort out our finances. He fooled thousands, put millions out of work and cost billions.
A loud mouthed loon who is a de facto enemy of the Armed Citizen, a friend of tyranny.
The Liberal Mind - The Psychological Causes of Political Madness
Doctor Rossiter, a psychologist explains WHY rather than WHAT. He makes a lot of sense to me. There is more on this theme at The Lunatic Fringe
The Lunatic Fringe
The lunatic Fringe is closely related to useful idiots. The term was invented by Teddy Roosevelt referring to dynamiters or some such.
Is marketed as a well meaning pioneer in sexual relations. It is not entirely certain that she was a deliberate subversive rather than a fool. She definitely kept evil company.
Writes for The Grauniad but sold his soul for a mess of pottage.
Was a useful idiot or Puppet Mistress; the two can shade into one another. At all events she colluded with Willi Münzenberg who was the great Spinmiester of the German communist party. She was definitely brought in a lot of rich idiots and they are very useful for financing things. The Wikipedia is quite forthcoming about her guilt. She was only part Jew.
History And Impact Of Marxist Leninist Organizational Theory
Was written by Professor Roche who has read his way over the ground and actually understands what it is all about. Transmission Belts presumably refer to propaganda systems which impose ideas on the peasant masses and command hierarchies which tax them and control them.
How to be a useful idiot
It is all too easy if all you see is the easy money offer, in this case from Arabs with oil riches.
Stalin's Most Useful Idiot - Walter Duranty
The list of useful idiots in the West is long but not very distinguished: Roger Baldwin, founder of the ACLU, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, author and playwright, Lillian Hellman, noted author, Ernest Hemingway, and many more. However one of the more prominent, but ironically less known, members of the “League of Useful Idiots” was correspondent, Moscow bureau chief of the New York Times, Pulitzer Prize winner, and Stalin apologist, Walter Duranty. What makes Walter Duranty so circumspect was not only his sympathetic view of Stalin but his under reporting on the Ukrainian famine of 1932.
Breaking Eggs and Peasants
Duranty continually described Stalin as a man who “could not make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.” This was in reference to Uncle Joe’s first Five Year Plan in which Russia moved towards industrialization and agro-collectivism. While the industry rebuild was very successful the forced state ownership Soviet agriculture and peasant manned farming co-ops was a caustic reality for some in the communist state. In 1932 a famine swept across the Russian province of Ukraine in which upwards of 10 million Russians perished from starvation and malnutrition. Scholarly debate still ranges on the exact cause of the 1932 Ukrainian famine–also known as Holodomor or Hunger-Plague–but widely held logic is the agro-economic “reforms” enacted were directly responsible. Although other theories assert that it was in direct response from the Soviet government to punish Ukraine for its growing nationalism..........
Walter Duranty travelled the Russian countryside witnessing these atrocities first hand. Despite the realities of human suffering, Duranty continued currying Stalin’s favour by severely under reporting the carnage to the West. Thus making himself and the [ American? ] Times willing accomplices and complicit in the murders of millions innocent Ukrainians.........
I am sure that if Walter Duranty had outlived his usefulness to Stalin and was one of the Western useful idiots caught up in the Great Purge we would still be hearing and unending diatribe from the Times about his tireless contributions to humanity. Since that is not the case, the Times lives with the knowledge they assisted Stalin, through Duranty, in the murder of millions of innocents.
I am not sure that Duranty could have been an idiot in the ordinary sense of the word but he was certainly very useful. So was the New York Times, perhaps the leading newspaper in America. It is a Propaganda machine owned by Jews.
Margaret Thatcher, The Most Useful Of Idiots Is Dead
Hendo puts a case; Hendo makes sense. She was over-confident, would not listen even when others spoke sense. She talked the talk but never got a grip of Immigration. Sounds right.
Lenin's Useful Idiots Despise The Working Classes [ 27 August 2017 ]
You can scarcely have missed the outcry over the powerful media elite. Donald Trump, in his Goebbels-like rants against the press, condemns it for lying about him. In Britain, television news presenters admit that their membership of an enclosed metropolitan circle puts them out of touch with the wider population.
You might think that this phenomenon – a privileged social caste which dominates established opinion and has little understanding of how most people live – was new and historically unprecedented. It is thought to be the common factor in the various electoral surprises that the populations of the West have sprung on their governments over the past year. But of course, it isn’t new at all. It has been pretty much the accepted order since time began...........
On the receiving end of this palpable disgust are people who still disconcertingly have a voice and a vote – both of which they are using in what should have been seen as predictably defiant ways.
Janet Daley writes about Trahison des Clercs, the treason of the [ alleged ] intellectuals. They are Useful Idiots with sharp elbows who will do whatever it takes to worm their way into power. It worked for the Earl of Dorset; he got to be the King's Groom of the Stool & thus the Duke. Some things do not change.
