>> we communist must used one country against another to gain strength as rapidly as possible. as soon as we are strong enough to defeat capitalism, we should take it by the strap of the neck. >> stalin stated the victory of socialism and one country is not a self sufficient -- at the same time, the beginning of an groundwork for the world revolution. khrushchev declared, due to the formation of the world system of socialism, the situation the world has altered radically. it's not known whom in circles whom. these word have direct bearing on the lives of every man, woman and child in the world. this man weighs fields in the black territories subjugated by communists since 1917 -- during this period, 42 nations
and territories gained independence and the right of self determination through policies pursued by the free world. we present the history of the major threat to the world today, communist imperialism. >> hello, my name is harry, i'm your narrator for this. we can learn much about socialist communism, nearly by watching and listening to the communist themselves. history proves that communism does not recognize basic moral virtues. on the thinking of communism, let me quote joseph stalin. "words must have no relation to actions. otherwise, what kind of diplomacy is it? words are one thing, actions another. words are a mask or concealment for bad deeds. sincere diplomacy is no more possible than dry water or wooden iron,
" end quote. communism follows the strategy of directly reversing the truth of constantly pointing the figure of accusations that those who oppose them. the to divert attention from their own violation of trust. in this film, you will see stark examples of the treachery and deceit practiced by communists, in pursuit of their goal to enslave. and now, may i introduce your guy to make sure the vice president of pepperdine dine college of los angeles mister william j. teague. >> rare film footage recently obtained from behind the iron curtain exposes the true significance of the promises and the alleged good intentions of the republic. the films include scenes have been determined by -- in the manifesto of the communist party, as written by marx and engles, we read this quote. communists disdain to conceal their views. they openly declare their ends can only be
obtained by the forceable overthrow of all existing social conditions. unquote. governed by lemons theory that freedom must be instant wished in order for communism to exist, the reds have been at war with the free world. lennon warned his disciples and again i quote, in war, never tie your hands with consideration of formality. it's ridiculous not to know that a treaty is the means of gaining strength. let's see how the communists put the so-called science of marxism, leninism to work for them. note if you will, the involvement of khrushchev in the ukraine and the key role he plays with stalin as they move forward in the chronology of communist imperialism.
>> in 1939, the question of peace depends on the soviets. stalin negotiates with france and england on a common and he hitler front. and at the same time, he was negotiating with hitler on a nonaggression pact. nazi germany comes to moscow to confer regarding the agreement. and later, the new soviet foreign minister molotov goes to berlin for further conferences with the nazis. august 23rd, 1939, the stalin hitler packed is announced, and the red army invades eastern poland. communists come out of hiding ready to consolidate their part in the takeover. these are some of the 250,000 prisoners of war being sent to russia. later, in 1943, the discovery
of a mass grave of some 15,000 polish officers and intellectual leaders executed by the reds in a forest near small in school is announced. stalin state is a mask meeting to meet representatives of the allegedly liberated western ukraine. this parade was ordered to celebrate the incorporation of eastern poland into the ussr. it's an honor of nicki to khrushchev. he is now the new secretary of the central committee of the communist party of the ukraine. khrushchev falsely declares our political positions are well-known. we have held on hold to the position of non intervention in the internal affairs of other countries the example of
finland, november 1939, they violate their nonaggression pact. they bomb without provocation helsinki. this signals the red army's ruthless aggression. 400,000 displaced men move their connections by every possible means of transportation. they million fans are heroic in the face of 170 million russians. the soviet finish war ends with finish loss. latvia, forced open in 1939 under soviet threat. on promise of friendship, moscow enters. on june 16th, 1940, the soviets issue an ultimatum. submit to occupation or be attacked. on june 17th, the red army, in direct violation, moves into complete the occupation of latvia. around russia to initiate the
new order comes the public government. with august as prime minister, russian technicians are sent in with the troops. banners and signs demand admittance of law via into the soviet union. in july, the second secretary of the lothian communist party makes the formal request. the proceedings are watched carefully by the soviet secret police. there is no opposing votes. on august 3rd he leads a delegation of latvian communists. stalin and company applaud the latvian communists. in the background is his marshal. they petitioned for acceptance
of lott via as a soviet state. he's speeds home to be welcomed by soviet troops has a new guard of honor. we are reminded of the night of molotov's speech in 1939. the nonsensical talk about the soviet ties a shun of bulk and countries is only to the interests of our common enemies. the new constitution from moscow guarantees freedom from unreasonable arrest. however, enough reasonable charges are found to send thousands of latin men, women, and children to slave labor camps. on this list are the names of 70 people arrested by the soviet secret police. the notation at the end of the list explains the quite reasonable charges, not politically reliable, shoot
them to death. ,, -- requests these. in june of 1940, the red army invades estonia and soviet soldiers are not assured proper security. less than a month later, a new communist constituent assembly hold its first session. key communists indoctrinated in special schools in moscow exhort the populists to accept the parties they're masters typically a vote of confidence for the one party. another victory for a new government, estonia's comes to communist imperialism. the example of romania, june 28th 1940, leftist underground workers to pave the way to welcome the invasion of the red army into romania.
northern remain as powerless to resist. romanian soldiers are evacuated to slave labor camps in the soviet union. the red flag flies over eastern romania. stalin's advance agents khrushchev organize the local communists. khrushchev congratulates remains under liberation. and ensures in that the soviet government does not pursue the aim of change and social living in romania. >> as he witnessed, the communist took lynn lennon at his word that the treaties the mains of gaining strength. the communists recognize the independence and made alliances with their neighbors to gain ties to in order to marshal the resources of the 170 million
russians to build a powerful military force. when they felt they were strong enough, they systematically and immediately doubled up their neighbors. the reds found that in most cases, just the threat of soviet power was enough to gain there in. karl marx, one of the original architects of communist theory said quote, the russian bear is certainly capable of anything, as long as he knows the other animals he has to deal with are capable of nothing, unquote. communist imperialism was on the march, when these things happened. on june 22nd, 1941, hitler without warning turns his forces against his partner stalin. stalin seeks the treaty of friendship and mutual assistance with the government in exile of the country he had previously violated, poland. --
on december 5th, 1941, general struck or ski shown here executes the agreement. stalin promises a free and independent poland after the war. stalin joins the allies, pledging quote, we will give the liberated peoples of europe the fall right of freedom and let them decide for themselves their own form of government, and quote. behind the scenes stalin grooms his future puppets made up of polish puppets were laying the ground over work for the takeover of their country. the war is over and with red troops on polar soil, polish communists signed a pact with the kremlin on molotov signs for the ussr. stalin's promises and feast of general stuck or ski for free elections have already been disordered in poland. in an
occupied poland, who's key figures are trained moscow agents. the example of czechoslovakia, december, 1943. the ambassador to russia and the czech government in exile signs a mutual assistance treaty with the soviets. these people are ten live in eons. august 7th, 1944 the republic requests incorporation into the ussr. today their existence is denied by the soviet union. albania, 1944, communist subversion under the red leader results in only one governing party being recognized in albania. the albanian workers party, the communist party. and inside the communist policy is the dove of peace. usually seen in parades and routes. this is manchuria destroyed after six months of soviet and chinese liberation. these are
manchurian factories. through systematic stripping by the soviets. khrushchev declared, quote our state is categorically refused to reject a dilute and violence of occupation. unquote. here is grim evidence to the contrary. this is only one of the many incidents of wanted looting, and removal to rush of industrial plants. the example of mongolia. this mongolian official is an agent of the kremlin. he has ordered to moscow to ask for former cooperation mongolia into the ussr. the example of yugoslavia. in may, 1946, stalin summons to moscow detail, head of the federal public peoples republic of yugoslavia, to sign a treaty of mutual assistance and friendship. july, 1946 czechoslovakia the
government in exile during the war years. he is unanimously reelected president by the constituent national assembly. subversive elements arranged a following of a coalition government, and very soon the communists become the leading party in the cabinet. here he announces non communist cabinet members before 100,000 at his party and may square. on february 22nd, communists file into the fair billing in prague where the federation of labour is taking place.. on the speaker stand is the premier. chairman of the central council of the czechoslovakia trade unions resolve the communist demands. the delegates a vote. two committee members have the courage to abstain. it is noted
by the soviet secret police. this whistle signals the beginning of the communist called strike to compel the president to secede to give into their demands. all business shuts down. transportation is halted. miners leave their shacks. with a crippling nationwide strike a success, the russian-backed communist leaders force the president to accept resignation of the last anti communist members of his cabinet. finally he himself resigns. the constitution on the soviet model providing a one party legislature is established, and the communists have complete a bitterly decision disillusioned patriot pager in vain attempts to help this country had this to say. >> it's up to us, the so-called little people, and i personally, proudly claim integrate of the working citizens. join us, come along with us. let's criticize together. let's make suggestions together. let's is insist on being heard. with
actions are bound to follow. if we give it half a chance. >> two weeks following the communist takeover of czechoslovakia, he leaps to his death from a prague will after realizing the futility of doing business with the communists. former president also learned his lessons, dies year later of a broken heart. the state sense talents romanian puppets back to moscow, for the usual acceptance into the soviet. reception. doctor peter growths ahead of the communist led coalition government arrives with romanian communist party leaders. finally, they sign a treaty with the soviets on september 15th, 1947. molotov signs for the ussr. seven months later, romania becomes the peoples democracy modeled on the soviet system. khrushchev's promises of keeping the status quo was nothing more than soviet
diplomacy. words are one, thing actions another. the berlin. following world war ii, the communists strengthens stalin's grip over east germany. june 17th, 1953 the people of east berlin rise in revolt against the red masters, demanding free elections. nearly 100,000 angry people stage the first great popular rebellion inside the iron curtain. part of the iron curtain is torn up. communist emblems are put to the torch. after one day of freedom, russian military might squalls the surging crowd. as it is a powerful demonstration of people risking their lives in defiance of tyranny. the example of hungary. hungry is ready to be taken into vacillates of the soviet union.
october, first 1949. hungry hungry becomes a popular democracy. the general's accepted tory the hungarian workers party arrived to cast his ballot into speak of soviet generosity i quote, him what was the role of the soviet union in the creation of a popular democracy? without the unremitting kind support of the soviet union, the hungarian popular democracy and all of their popular democracies would never have been created. and quote. harping on capitalist imperialism, the red satirized alleged war mongers. in 1956, the world learned the meaning of the unrelenting support of the on soviet union. russians, go home. the hungarian people are in revolt. they succeed in overwhelming the red forces for a few days. then through ruse and treachery, capturing the hungarian freedom fighters totally unaware, the russians counterattack to end the short
lived breath of hungarian freedom. >> the acts of subjugation which we have just witnessed supervised by khrushchev, it is difficult to understand this quote from stalin. the people of small nations fight needlessly of soviet oppression. if the soviet union would undertake to impress or influence small nations it would be its ideology of many. unquote. words are one thing, actions another. lenin advised his followers and i quote the outcome of the struggle be determined by the fact that russia, india china and so forth constitute the overwhelming majority of the population of the globe unquote. communist imperialism marches on. >> the example of china. 1945, molotov signs the treaty of friendship, with the
nationalists ref representative. as this treaty is being signed, stalin is aiding and abetting now say swings communist guerrilla army against the nationalist chinese. in january of 1940, six the chinese nationalist and the general of the communist forces meet the ignited states general marshal for a truce, to csis civil war between the national government and communist guerrilla forces under mao. it appears he is having the last laugh. the chinese communists having game time to build a strength, violate the truce and sweep over china. this victory parade in shanghai is in honor of stalin, mueller say soon, and another. the 50-year treaty between red china and russia is signed between russia's foreign minister, in the process of
animal. stolen and now witnessing. the example of korea. world war ii ends in the northern part of korea in the hands of soviet troops. united states and soviet representatives meet insole two but it becomes clear that the russians are not interested in a free united korea. but are determined to bring the entire country under communist -- koreans north of the parallel, the boundary line between free and communist held korea, during the liberty and prosperity existing below the line, come in thousands to the new republic, fleeing the autocratic communist peoples republic. in june of 1950, unprovoked and without warning, a ruthless bloody invasion of south korea was launched by
north koreans. delivering on this tank however's russian. the united states axed quickly to check the red aggression. subsequently, the united nations issues in a direct order to the north koreans to seize their attack. the directive is ignored. the united nations adds additional military strength. right china enters the war, allying herself with the north koreans. military setbacks prompt stalin to direct mao to initiate peace for the free world, the talks are frustrating. characterized by deliberate delays, haggling
and petty arguments by the reds, as the war rages on. finally, my was recalled moscow by stalin, where he is met by molotov. and this time, mao is ordered to conclude a peace. on july 27th, 1953, after three years of conflict and negotiation, an agreement is reached. lieutenant general william j. harrison of the united states signs for the united nations. the north korean lieutenant general affixes his signature. the truce accomplished, these north korean communist leaders are called to moscow to receive instructions in carrying a cold war. red chinese troops
relieved from the korean front were transferred to the southeast asia tallied wars in vietnam and laos. khrushchev described the wars as revolutionary wars. these are not only possible, but inevitable and will continue to get communist support khrushchev describes the cuban situation as peoples wars of liberation, and sacred wars. communists must not only supports that wars by lead them. khrushchev points out and we quote, when transitioning to communism meets no determined resistance, it can be brought about peacefully. otherwise, communists must encourage armed uprising and civil war. end quote. there was no determined resistance to communism in the british tiana. >> the example of georgetown
british guyana in 1953. trade holders here threatening the government. accused of conspiracy are a man and his wife, heads of the peoples progressive party. communist propaganda letters propagated, but the communists had their foot in the door. by 1961, the communist premier controls british guyana. the example of vietnam, july 21st, 1954 at geneva. the french general signs a cease-fire agreement with the admin general. others taking part or russia's molotov. negotiations between red china and the french premier achieves an armistice, which brings to an end seven and a half years of fighting in indochina. the flag comes down.
the french leave hanoi according to the terms of the armistice and virtual control is left in the hands of red elements. these are some of the million vietnamese refugees fleeing the area. the red army takes over. the communist flag goes up. proclamations and decrees of the new order are immediately promoted. cuba meets in havana with the theme down with anti-imperialism as they hail castro's expropriation of united states holdings. delegates from read china, the united states, canada, russia, and romania, on december 2nd, 1961. castro reveals i'm a marxist-leninist and will be one until the day i die. socialism is a world reality today. there is no halfway between socialism and imperialism.
>> we have been watching the communist takeover of territories. while this was going on, comrades throughout the world were charged that capitalism inevitably leads to imperialism. this is like thief crying thief. and we note, that their movements of followed a rather rigid pattern. there's a reason for this, because it is spelled out in the communist international's official publication, communist. let's look at a few very select quotes. immediately after the seizure of power, the central committee will set up a new government. it will appear democratic. opponents of the new administration should be removed as soon as possible, but in a democratic fashion. that is to say, be brought to trial before a people scored comprised of one known member of the party and two secret no members or sympathizers. the
country should not apply for inclusion in the soviet union until they have received instructions from the common term. traders are to be liquidated without trial. the term class enemy, comprises the following groups. members of ideological movements over nationalist or religious character. members of the police force, diplomats, civil servants, officers. any of individuals known to have opposed the revolution. we continue our quoting. whenever necessary, representatives of the churches should be allowed to contribute in the preparation and carrying through of the armed revolution. their numerical strength should determine the rate at which church influence is later to be eliminated from the party. end quote. the communist international's blueprint for conquest speaks
for itself. but the will for freedom cannot be changed. let's look. >> the example of east berlin. in the fall of 1961, a new version of china's great wall appears, separating the free west from communist dominated east berlin to keep their people from temptation, the communist seek to block out the sights and sounds of freedom. speaking of the east berlin situation, and khrushchev said, quote, the soviet union has diplomatic relations with all the countries of eastern europe and maintains most lively contacts with them. i must say that we know of no symptoms of any tensions in this area, unquote. however, in the kremlin press conference, he chained his tune, quote west berlin has become a kind of cancerous tumor. if it's not liquidated, it spells a danger that might lead to dangerous consequences. because of this, we decided to perform a surgical operation to liquidate the occupational
status of berlin, end quote. and then khrushchev blustered quote, we are not afraid of withdrawing our troops from all countries where they are stationed. britain, united states and france fear this, end quote. again, the finger of false accusation. the truth is, the following world war ii, the allies left a temporary force of about 800,000 in europe, whereas the soviet maintains a standing army of 5 million. and their internal police armies total 2 million. the moral sense of socialist communist materialism was began to falter. under the growing realization that the longing for freedom within human beings is stronger than stone barriers, sharper than barbed wire, more powerful than death itself. ♪ ♪ ♪ here is a grim -- tug of
75 years ago in march 1946, winston churchill delivered his iron curtain speech at westminster college in fulton, missouri. next, former soviet leader, gorbachev's lecture at the college from may 1992. he talked about how the world could emerge from the cold war and shape the future.
