Willow Omarova, the proud Komsomol who wrote about Karl Marx on a Lenin scholarship, has withdrew his candidacy and will not be the next Comptroller of the Currency at the Treasury Department. The former of the Moscow State, once arrested for theft, aimed at replicating Soviet banking in America. Sen. Tim Scott (RS.C.) has called her the worst possible choice, but the cowardly Soviet apologist proves instructive about what’s going on in America right now.
Under the administration of President Trump, General Mark Milley named himself commander-in-chief, told China he would warn them of a US attack and called Trump supporters brownshirts. After a highly questionable election, thousands of troops occupied Washington and the FBI targeted Biden’s opposition as domestic terrorists. It has all the makings of a coup and invites a look at a democratic nation that suffered a similar takeover.
Like Tracy A. Burns explains in “The communist coup in CzechoslovakiaThis nation was the last democracy in Eastern Europe, but on February 25, 1948, it was fundamentally transformed into a communist country. In 1946 the Communist Party won 38% of the vote, but in 1947 the USSR banned Czechoslovakia from receiving American aid under the Marshall Plan. Non-Communist ministers then began to receive parcel bombs, a sign of the future.
“Communist police claimed to have uncovered a spy scheme carried out by US military attachés in Prague,” Burns recalled. “The Interior Ministry has placed non-Communist politicians under close surveillance. Democratic figures have been arrested for no apparent reason. Then “violent Communist-led protests erupted. Armed trade unionists rioted in the streets of Prague, attacking the offices of the political opposition. The only force that could oppose the communists was the army, but “it was led by communist general Ludvík Svoboda”.
The Soviets gathered troops on the border, and post-war President Eduard Beneš relented at the request of a new government under communist Klement Gottwald. Democratic Foreign Minister Jan Masaryk, son of Czechoslovakia’s first president Tomáš G. Masaryk, died a mysterious death. As Burns explains, “he fell or was pushed off a balcony in the Czernin Palace and was found on the sidewalk under his desk.” A USSR-inspired constitution became law and no opposition to the Communist Party was allowed, “triggering more than 40 long years of totalitarian rule”.
For a sense of totalitarian rule in practice, check out Czech writer Milan Kundera in The Unbearable Lightness of Being. As Kundera recounts: “Religion has been persecuted by the regime and most people have embraced the church. The secret police have taken care of “staged situations that will compromise us” and “they need to trap people to force them to collaborate and set traps for other people, in order to gradually transform the whole nation into a single organization of informants”.
Under communism, “more and more people went to prison for no offense other than defending their own opinions”. Street names were Sovietized and Czech painters, philosophers and writers were “relieved of their duties and became window washers, parking attendants, night watchmen, boilermakers in public buildings or, at best, and generally with traction, taxi drivers”.
As Kundera reminds us, if a painter is to have an exhibition, a private citizen to receive a visa for a coastal country, a football player to join the national team, “then a wide range of recommendations and reports must be collected from the janitor, colleagues, police, local Party organization, trade union concerned, and added up, weighed and summed up by special officials.
The regime demanded “socialist realism” and art schools produced portraits of communist statesmen. And so on, with some parallels already evident in America. This should come as no surprise given the composite persona that President David Garrow portrays in Rising star: the creation of Barack Obama, dedicated to “fundamentally transform“The United States of America.
The greatest influence of the composite character was the beloved Communist and Soviet Agent Frank Marshall Davis, an African American who spent much of his life defending an all-white Stalinist dictatorship. The composite character choice for the CIA boss was John Brennan, who in 1976 voted for Stalinist Gus Hall, candidate for the Communist Party of America, and should never have been allowed near the door of the CIA in the first place.
“Progressive” Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) spent his honeymoon in the Soviet Union and has a high opinion of the communist regime in Cuba. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) was so in love with Communists and Soviet Agent Harry Bridges that she rented it in the Congress Register. The choice of Omarova shows this team in triumph mode.
Some democrats opposed Lenin’s scholar, but for the putschist clan, it will be a step back, two steps forward. The Biden Junta is deploying white-coated supremacist Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Lyssenko figure who claims to represent science. The FBI and the Justice Department are staging compromising situations and targeting those who don’t revere the confused Biden.
Military bosses fight “climate change” and purge the ranks of patriotic Americans. Antifa and BLM militias have bloodied their troops and stand ready for action. And as Orwell noted in farm animal, rats are comrades.
According to Milan Kundera, humanity’s struggle against power is the struggle of memory against oblivion. With this in mind, the Czechs created the Communism Museum on the theme “Communism – the dream, the reality and the nightmare”.
If the putschist clan succeeds, a totalitarian nightmare will be the fate of America.
