New York City gave birth to a communist Fifth Column movement
I remember when a Fifth Column movement was alive and thriving in New York City’s west village, also known as Greenwich Village.
See When New York City Was the Capital of American Communism
” The Brooklyn-born playwright and critic Lionel Abel, who cut his political teeth in left-wing circles in Greenwich Village in the 1930s, remarked in his memoirs that during the Depression years, New York City “went to Russia and spent most of the decade there.” Leaving aside Mr. Abel’s taste for the mordant, he had a point.
For a few decades — from the 1930s until Communism’s demise as an effective political force in the 1950s — New York City was the one place where American communists came close to enjoying the status of a mass movement. Party members could live in a milieu where co-workers, neighbors and the family dentist were fellow Communists; they bought life insurance policies (excellent value for money) from party-controlled fraternal organizations; they could even spend their evenings out in night clubs run by Communist sympathizers (like the ironically named Café Society on Sheridan Square in Greenwich Village, a showcase for up-and-coming black performers like Billie Holliday).”
Well, it appears the old Fifth Column movement is still alive and well in America and its ring leaders are in control of the democrat party who need an impoverished and dependent population who they can charm with free government cheese. Why else would Bill de Blasio, Schumer and Pelosi want to import the world’s dependent poverty stricken, poorly educated, low and unskilled populations into America?
Is it not reasonable to believe Bill de Blasio, Schumer and Pelosi are inspired by socialism and communism, and buying votes with government cheese to retain their hold on government power?
The unavoidable truth is, our social democrats’ plan for “free” college tuition will be paid for by taxing the paychecks of millions of college graduates who worked for and paid their own way through college and are now trying to finance their own economic needs.
