What they do
“Schools opt for cuddly over historic names” (July 9 edition) is no surprise for me. The 55 goals for the Communist Party in America dictated by Stalin’s Soviet propaganda machine included:
No. 22: Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all god sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
No. 28: Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in schools on the ground that it violates the principal of separation of church and state.
No. 30: Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
No. 41: Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
All 55 were read onto the Congressional record on January 10, 1963. After the demise of the Soviet Union, the KGB released documents that proved the goals and connection were in fact true.
