FBI Sham Organizations
In our book “Silent Terror” (One family’s history of political persecution in the United States) https://arnoldlockshin.wordpress.com/, I wrote the following:
“FBI-selected leaders and organizations
“Psychological warfare attacks against individuals go beyond destroying certain leaders and organizations. FBI-selected and trained shams can be put in their place. The ‘grander mission’ of the campaign against (Martin Luther) King was to put in place a ‘leader’ chosen by the FBI. According to FBI memos, after a successful campaign to destroy King: ‘then the right kind of a national Negro leader could at this time be gradually developed so as to overshadow Dr. King and be in the position to assume the role of the leadership of the Negro people.’
“This ‘leader’ undoubtedly would arrive on the scene with a well-trained supporting cast of FBI accomplices. As the CIA establishes front organizations for its international operations, the FBI does the same at home. The U.S. Department of Justice stated that COINTELPRO (FBI program of disruptive and murderous operations) included ‘establishing sham organizations for disruptive purposes.’ In order to misdirect, confuse and subvert genuine progressive efforts, the FBI has invaded and overwhelmed legitimate organizations.
“More importantly, the U.S. Intelligence apparatus sets up fake protest and ‘revolutionary’ organizations, replete with money, leaflets, placards and newspapers. An honest person joining such a group faces a treacherous road. He can be easiy tracked, and his ideals may be shaken by the disheartening or provocative behavior of his presumed comrades in struggle. Even worse, these very people are apt to be among the most malignant FBI or CIA accomplices operating against the unsuspecting and likely inexperienced victim.
“If a bevy of FBI-controlled ‘leaders’ and organizations were in place, it is not hard to imagine how damaging this would be for the sustained development of genuine mass movements in the U.S. Broadly developed progressive thinking, which is closely linked to these struggles, would also suffer greatly. This situation combined with the artful and characteristically silent destruction of honest activists would spell grave difficulties for a basic challenge to the policies of America’s ruling class.
“Martin Luther King was targeted by the FBI and murdered precisely because he was a potent mass leader for progressive change. To judge progressive and radical movements and leaders in the United States, it is crucial to examine them with complete objectivity. How earnestly and successfully they work towards building on-going, powerful movements of mass struggle is decisively important.” (p. 79-80)
These conclusions were not only based on theoretical considerations, as important as they are. I also wrote:
“In 1969… the Vietnam war continued to rage and I became the state organizer in Ohio for the Communist Party (USA)… In the fall of 1972, we moved to Los Angeles, where I became Southern California organizer of the Party… It was at this time we realized we were targeted for heavy FBI harassment… Harassment took a sharp turn for the worse, and we decided it would be best for me to concentrate on science… This signified no change in political conviction, but was based on the realities we faced.” (p. 19-20)
The main realitу staring me in the face was the fact that the so-called “Communist Party USA” was entirely a sham FBI organization! True, I could not have known every single CP “member” in the country, but I knew every single one in New England, Ohio and Southern California plus many others around the country. Fakes, fakes, fakes.
As for the “leadership” of the so-called “Communist Party USA,” every single one – without exception – was a bought-and-paid-for stooge of the US secret political police. Although it took me considerable time to come to this realization, it was not so difficult to ascertain as it might seem. Instead of any meaningful political action, the Party “leadership” held meetings after meetings, meetings about meetings, and meetings about meetings about meetings. I, of course, had to attend these affairs, and – with time and a growing understanding of what was taking place — I learned all I needed to know about my “comrades.”
“Silent Terror” was written during the Gorbachev “perestroika” period, when, as we now know, the Soviet Union was led — to its destruction — by a CIA conspiracy (with the critical connivance of the phony “communist” KGB!). At that time (1987) the “Communist Party USA” was formally a “fraternal” party of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.
I could not then write all that I knew.
Правительство США жестоко нарушало мои права человека при проведении кампании террора, которая заставила меня покинуть свою родину и получить политическое убежище в СССР. См. книгу «Безмолвный террор — История политических гонений на семью в США» — «Silent Terror: One family’s history of political persecution in the United States» — http://arnoldlockshin.wordpress.com
Правительство США еще нарушает мои права, в течении более 12 лет отказывается от выплаты причитающейся мне пенсии по старости. Властители США воруют пенсию!! Всё это — ещё доказательство, что настоящий действующий закон в США — Закон джунглей.
ФСБ — Федеральная служба «безопасности» России — вслед за позорным, предавшим страну предшественником КГБ, выполняет приказы секретного, кровавого хозяина (boss) — американского ЦРУ (CIA). Среди таких «задач» — мне запретить выступать в СМИ и не пропускать большинства отправленных мне комментариев. А это далеко не всё…
