“Trumbo” movie sugarcoats the toxic ideology of communism

David MenziesMission Specialist

Last weekend, my lefty friend suggested I celebrate Labour Day by watching his favourite flick of 2015 Trumbo, a biopic about Dalton Trumbo who in 1947 was the highest-paid screenwriter until he was blacklisted for being a member of the Communist Party.

Bryan Cranston as Dalton Trumbo is superb though the movie itself would’ve been twice as good if only it were half as long. But I'm not doing a film review. What struck me about the movie was the kid-glove treatment it gave communism.

Progressive apologists lament that the ideology is valid but hasn’t been implemented “properly” and it is the poor execution by misguided dictators that is to blame for the atrocities committed in its name.

That’s a lie. It’s the ideology itself that is deeply flawed.

Trumbo got a raw deal being blacklisted for his beliefs but let’s not sugarcoat and make excuses for the toxic ideology that is communism.

Remember the fossils though! You know the ones that PROVE evolution. The funky human like skulls. To the atheist that gives them the evidence they need to act like cavemen. But lo and behold, experts ( there are always experts) cant even get together on whether ANY of those fossilized remains are even related to modern man. In fact many have been proven to be just extinct versions of monkeys and apes. That said the similarity of species can point just as strongly to a creator than the other way around. Mammals all have two eyes, a nose ( or version of nose like a blow hole) and a mouth with two ears. Even reptiles !

Hi Bill

I agree 100% that is so true.

However more Canadians need to know this. This also need to know the progression from outright Communists to what you have stated. This is why
Igor Gouzenko theorized that Pierre Trudeau joined the Liberals because he knew the NDP would go nowhere. It was simply a power play.

While Communists love to use the term “Democratic” as a diversion ie. NDP. Our Liberal Party and the US Democratic party actually started out as Liberal and Democrat. They were infiltrated later because of their ever shifting opinions further and further to the Left. Trudeau saw this and went for it. The Liberal Party of Canada today is NOT the Liberal Party it started out to be neither is the Democratic Party in the US. As stated, by the 1930’s there began an infiltration of these parties by the Communists. When one looks at the policies of the ruling Democrats from 1945 until the Korean War one cant help but wonder who their allegiance was to. There has only been one greater idiot/traitor in human history after Harry Truman and that is Barrack Hussein Obama. Democrats are too stupid to understand that their party has murdered, and I mean MURDERED tens of thousands of their own troops from 1945 until the present day. This either by idiotic foreign policy or deliberately.

In the news today we have North Korea threatening the United States and the US responding with a free air show which I am sure the North Koreans appreciated. I can just see the tubby Korea dictator chowing down on popcorn. To CNN this is effective foreign policy while Obama criticising Trump for being a reality TV Star. No one reminded the idiot that his wife was appearing on Ellen that night. It is all a game to these idiots because they have achieved the end result of decades of Communist infiltration of western media from the Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation in the UK, to the Communist Broadcasting Corporation in Canada and the Atheist Broadcasting Corporation in Australia. Practically ALL US News agencies are doing the bidding of the left including the notorious Clinton News Network. I would not be surprised if North Korea nukes California and Washington one day and apart from the neighboring states being stoned from all the resulting marijuana smoke the US left wing media will try to cover it up by stating that a permanent fog has settled in along the west coast that has disrupted communications – NOT TO WORRY. Either that or they will find someway of blaming someone else.

So people need to get wise with the deception employed by their Communist predecessors to understand how the globalists are continuing on with the tradition of coercion, deception, lies, blackmail and character assassination.

Bill is right. What we are seeing is a complete fulfilment of what the Communists actually tried to achieve only with slightly different motives. After all even the Bolsheviks realizes one year into the revolution that Socialism and Communism don’t work. Modern Communists use Capitalism to achieve their goals. They are now rich but still vie for total control. Bill is right to use the UN and also the European Union as perfect examples. Here in the west they are relying on the dumbing down and brain death of our youth to achieve the same goals but threatening them with PC reprisals which can be as simple as name calling.

For one Canadians ( THE REBEL ) needs to get the facts out there that the Liberal Party of Canada and the NDP beginning in the 1930’s to 60’s were fronts for ultra Socialists and Communists in Canada. They latched on to the causes of the day, like they did during the Vietnam War, to control society and how it thinks. The idiot Trudeau is just a result of their success.

When my adult kids tried to convince me that evolution is true, my response is, if evolution is true, then why do we still have monkeys and apes around. They don’t have an answer, and they don’t try to convince me that evolution is true anymore.

Communism is just an excuse to steal from the people. It is a philosophy of the destruction of the middle class and confiscation of property. It destroys the practice of the Christian religion and creates not a classless society, but a society of very rich & very poor.

Communism ends social & economic movement and condemns the people to eternal poverty. It gives the government control of all agriculture through the confiscation of property and then subjugates the people through starvation.

All one needs to do is read about Joseph Stalin; Lenin; Mao Tse Tung & more recently Kim Jong Ung of North Korea and how dictatorial & murderous their administrations have been.

We as Canadians can now see the beginnings of this with Rachel Notely; Justin Trudeau & Wynne. They steal from the people; tax the middle class to oblivion and live high on the hog and they laugh at us while doing it.

They think Omar Kadhar and Islamists are perfect Canadians. They support Sharia Law by telling us that we should welcome the Islamics and tell us what wonderful Canadians these murders make. When we speak up ,we are told we are not accepting and we are Islamophobic.

If wanting National security; If wanting democracy; If wanting freedom of speech; if wanting equality of men & women; if not wanting our children to be preyed upon by this new sex education bill makes me bigoted than bigotted I am and proud of it.

Ken, global communism or the transnational spread of communism through subversion – has Metamorphisized after the bankruptcy and dissolution of the soviet union.

Its main proponents and practitioners used the glasnost free mobility to re-establish themselves in every transnational policy think tank in the west. They fused soviet statecraft with cultural marxism and global oligopoly finance.

This is what “globalism” is today – any government tied into UN treaties which affects their domestic legal systems or the operation of their public policy without direct mandate through direct referenda are being infected by globalism – the climate hysteria or sustainability Malthusianism and green energy cabals which proposes to resolve a specious global crisis by concentrating political power and global resource regulation under unelected global governing bodies is the raw face of the end game of the old international communist hegemony – these require the stripping of individual rights and an end to private property.

Sorry David Menzies but any member of the Communist Party of the United States SHOULD HAVE BEEN AND REMAINED BLACKLISTED. You need to read up on your history. Well if you can find the first hand information in a sea of lies perpetrated by the Left. ( When I say Left I include all forms of Socialism including Fascism )

1. Any member of a Communist Political Party in the West is already guilty of sedition and espionage. This is because it was common knowledge LONG BEFORE WW2, that these parties were simply fronts for the Soviet International. They were the base for agent recruitment which was also fostered within the Communist International Youth Groups put on by the Communist International. A good example are the Cambridge Five. I would also like to remind people that Communist Youth Groups, essentially versions of the Hitler Jugend or Italian Ballila existed BEFORE their Fascist counterparts. In fact the dogma of control through violence and genocide amongst Socialists and Communists existed decades before the term Fascism was even coined. Fascism, like Communism is just another version of Socialism. This is why they had to get rid of each other FIRST before the victors brought down the state. This being the Weimar Republic in Germany. In Germany the non-Nazi Socialists and Communists lost. In Russia they won.
2. Trumbo supported the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pack by writing the book The Remarkable Andrew. So he definitely had a hard time recognizing evil of any sort.
3. In the movie he celebrates Christmas with his family ?? In the Soviet Union that would mean either extermination OR Gulag.
4. The movie LIES when it says not one spy was revealed. Well, for one there was the Mocase Group which included Boris Morros a Hollywood producer who admitted, after he defected, that he was a Soviet agent. He was one of quite a few that we now know of. How many do you think they did not uncover? The GRU/NKVD and KGB operated just like SIS and SOE in Europe. If one circuit is compromised, they are set up so that it will not reveal neighbouring circuits in the network. To think Morros was the only one is insane.
5. The movie, like Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies, NEVER, not ONCE mentions that the Western Allies had been uncovering Soviet espionage in the west since the 1920’s. The first real media sensation and revelation came with the defection of Soviet GRU agent Krivitsky. He began to reveal the extent of Soviet moles within the west in 1939/40 until he was murdered by the Soviets. Then you have Igor Gouzenko who also pointed to the extensive infiltration of all aspects of western society including those working at Canada’s External Affairs. This included Lester Pearson, Dr. Norman Robertson and Saul Rae. All fingered by Soviet agent defector and member of the COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE USA Elizabeth Bentley (defected 1945 became informer in 1952). My research has confirmed that our once Prime Minister of Canada Lester Pearson and Robertson were working for the Soviets. Gouzenko went as far as to suggest the Pearson appointed P.E. Trudeau was also working for the Soviets. This is not a stretch considering Trudeau’s biography does not hide his Communism. In fact I am at this very moment in the middle of an Access to Information demand that files on External Affairs, Gouzenko and Soviet Espionage in Canada be releases under Trudeau juniors “transparency” promise. Files that were CLOSED by his father.
6. Even in Bridge of Spies Spielberg tries to make Soviet agent Abel /Fisher look like an innocent man. They make James Donovan his lawyer look brilliant. However what the Coen brothers don’t mention is that a prisoner swap between Abel and downed U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers would NEVER had to have happened if prior Soviet spies operating in the US did not smuggle out VIA THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE USA, defense secrets that allowed the Soviets to develop an accurate high altitude SAM.
7. Both movies completely neglect that fact that ALL OF THESE PEOPLE supported handing atomic secrets to our sworn enemies. That placed these idiots and ALL OF US in danger. It also has to be stated that they penetrated the US/British Atomic Bomb projects as early as 1942. Therefore, through error or through the collapse of the Soviet Union it is possible that Hitler also could have accessed them. Not only that but no one seems to realize that after Democrat Harry Truman handed China on a platter to the Communists, it was this very secret atomic information that resulted in a stalemate in Korea and a monumental waste in Vietnam. Both wars fought timidly because of the spectre of nuclear holocaust at the hands of the Communists who got all that wonderful info from their Communist friends in the West.

So, Jimmy Reece, what is the answer? There are only three possibilities that I can think of; 1) God created the Universe for His own divine purpose, 2) The Universe just spontaneously popped into existence for nor particular reason, or 3) The Universe has existed from all eternity. So pick one…. unless you can think of a fourth option…. I can’t. I can address options 2 and 3 and give good sound reasons why I don’t believe them, and in so doing explain why option 1 is the most logical explanation: Option 2); If the Universe just spontaneously popped into existence, why don’t other things just spontaneously pop into existence? For instance, why doesn’t a horse just suddenly appear in your living room? That concept is just plain silly. Option 3); In Philosophy, the Kalam Cosmological arguments states that, since you can neither add to nor subtract from infinity, an infinite regress of temporal events is a philosophical impossibility. Further, astronomers and astrophysicists agree that the Universe is 13.7 billion years old, and the Kalam Cosmological argument further states that anything that began to exist must have an external cause…. nothing that has a beginning can be self-caused… that would mean that it would have to pre-exist itself…. just plain silly. So, a) the Universe began to exist, b) the Universe had an external cause, c) since matter and time began with the Universe, that external cause would have to be immaterial and timeless, d) there are only two things that are immaterial and timeless…. abstract principles of logic, such as mathematics or the law of non-contradiction, and, a mind… not a brain… a MIND!!. As far as the Bible being a bunch of fairy tails, the more archeological evidence that is unearthed, the more the historical accuracy of the old testament is confirmed. And as far as Jesus being exactly who the Bible claims he is, there are over 350 prophetic verses in the old testament fulfilled in Jesus, written by countless authors, over thousands of years, who never knew each other. In a study conducted by Dr. John Stoner, author of Science Speaks, the probability of just 8 of those prophecies being fulfilled in one man are 1 in 10 to the 28th power…. that’s a 10 followed by 28 zeros. If the Bible Has been proven truthful in those things we can know, I think I can trust it…. even when I don’t fully understand it. I guess I just don’t have your faith, Jimmy. I’m going with the most probable explanation for our existence.

Hollywood’s love affair with socialism/communism, and its promotion, was only dented by the hero Joe McCarthy…it is ongoing and effective as ever at robotizing and indoctrinating Westerners in the anti-democracy lies and promises of socialism and communism, not to mention the lies of so-called ‘McCarthyism’.
Thanks to the Fabian Society and their MO of penetration and permeation, followed by nepotism, too many in the West ‘think’ that socialism is a good thing! Bernie Saunders running on a blatant socialist ticket…in America!?
They’re still pumping out pro-commie movies and the big lie about so-called McCarthyism, and have been since Joe McCarthy was demonized by those pinko liars – does anyone know of any movie that was pro-Joe McCarthy and what the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) was attempting to accomplish…

Henry Reardon commented – “If the Communists of the world want to make me receptive to the possibility that their system actually works, they should show me an example of even a single VILLAGE that actually thrives on Communist principles,”

It doesn’t work that way in a stage 3 demoralization/destabilization – at the stage we are in now there are sufficient number brainwashed in Marxist propaganda -

Most of the people who graduated in the 60’s-70s, dropouts or half-baked intellectuals, are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, business, mass media, and educational systems. You are stuck with them. You can’t get rid of to them. They are contaminated. They are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern. You cannot change their mind even if you expose them to authentic information. Even if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still cannot change the basic perception and the inverted logic of their behavior. In other words for these people the process of cultural demoralization is complete and irreversible. To rid society of these people you need another 15 or 20 years to educate a new generation of patriotically minded and common sense people who would be acting in favor and in the interests of free western society.

A person who was demoralized through indoctrination is unable to assess true information. The facts mean nothing to him, even if I shower him with irrefutable information contrary to his indoctrinated Marxian cultural dogma, with authentic proof, with documents and pictures. Even if I take him by the hand and shove his face into to the Soviet Union and show him the old concentration camps or those in China or Korea or the breakdown of communist systems in Venezuela, Cuba, Belize, Africa…he will refuse to believe it…. until he receives a kick to his thick head. When the martial law military boot crashes into his skull – then he will understand, but not before that. That’s the tragedy of the situation of marxist cultural demoralization.

. Most of the North American politicians, media, and educational system train another generation of people who think they are living in the post cold war peacetime. False. Western free nations are in a state of war; undeclared, total war against the basic principles and foundations of our free nations. And the initiator of this war is not Comrade Vlad Putin of course – it’s our own political system which is being infected with globalist marxism. However ridiculous it may sound to say aloud due to massive media slander and cover up, it is the world Communist system, or the old global Communist conspiracy in a new guise. We have literally several years to live on unless the electorate of the free western nations wake up. The time bomb is ticking. With every second the disaster is coming closer. Unlike the old soviet defectors of the cold war, we will have nowhere to defect to

If the Communists of the world want to make me receptive to the possibility that their system actually works, they should show me an example of even a single VILLAGE that actually thrives on Communist principles, with no guns pointed at anyone’s head to force them to participate. They can’t do even that much because Communism does not work and has not worked anywhere it was ever tried.

Sincere Communists who’d spent a lifetime studying Marx and trying to apply his writings to the real world bent over backwards – and executed millions and millions of “obstacles” (people who wouldn’t get with the program)- and they STILL didn’t get it to work

Any time I hear a Communist say “Communism will work if we just do it differently” I ask them what they would do differently to what Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, etc. have already done. They never have an answer. They have no idea what else to try because everything has already been tried. This should not be surprising. Even Marx had only the vaguest idea of what a Communist society would look like.

As far as I’m concerned, the Communists of the world need to work very VERY hard on getting even a single village to work with Communist principles before they ever open their mouths about how wonderful their ideas are. Until then, they really need to STFU (Shut The F*ck Up).

This is the second movie in which Cranston has appeared where the purpose of the film was to re-write the historical record to favor the subversion of American government – first with the portrayal of that Dixie-crat KKK loving LBJ who lunched America into the Vietnam crisis for his globalist pals and now Trumbo, an avowed, unrepentant anti-American communist who used his screen plays to subliminally destabilize the American system – either Cranston is what the traditional soviet subverters called a useful idiot, or he willing likes to distort historical records.

Where there’s smoke there’s fire Dave, and there is a reason tail gunner Joe went to Hollywood hunting commie subversives.

The following is from a 1984 interview with defected KGB expert trained in communist subversion takeovers of non-communist nations -

Stage One- Demoralization
It takes 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation [i.e. corrupt morally]. This is the minimum number of years required to educate one generation of students by exposing them to enemy ideology. “In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least 3 generation of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of free market liberal democracy or nation state patriotism.”

“The KGB’s activity was directed towards compiling huge amounts of information on individuals instrumental in creating public opinion. They included publishers, editors, journalists, actors, writers, educators, political science professors, politicians and leaders in business. “Idealistic, leftist communists are the useful idiots; the leftists who are idealistically believing in the beauty of Soviet or Communist or Socialist or whatever system; when they get disillusioned, they become the worst enemies.” His KGB instructors specifically made the point, “never bother with dogmatic leftists, forget about these political prostitutes – aim higher”. Large circulation, established conservative media, rich movie makers, intellectuals in academic circles are the goal. Cynical, ego-centric people, suffering from self-importance, who lack morals, are the most desirable recruits. In other words, the narcissistic sociopath.”
