When the Red Terror Was Celebrated in London

Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev

Do you think the Leftist tyranny that has enveloped us is a recent thing? Think again.

by Michael Walsh

DURING THE 68 years of Soviet terror London’s Westminster and the banking community’s Square Mile could best be described as partners in perfidy. Soviet leaders were applauded by Britain’s elite and press corps on a scale rivaling their scale of mass murder.

When in 1953 the murdered Joe Stalin was found dead on his bedroom floor, Churchill was in despair. In the British wartime leader’s room was a large framed photograph of the Soviet dictator. Churchill, under his breath, muttered “He (Stalin) was the last of the few.” Churchill then sat in his chair and stared morosely at the ceiling.

Georgy Malenkov, in March 1953, stepped into the boots of the most terrifying dictator in history following Stalin’s murder. Despite his enthusiastic participation in Stalin’s great purges, Malenkov was ousted and exiled 23 months later by arch-rival Nikita Khrushchev. This boy from the Ukrainian backwoods had earned his laurels during the period known as the Red Terror.

Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev has been described as one of the most demonic despots of the 20th century. His elevation to supreme leadership was due entirely to the mass execution of those with whom he had direct relationships but viewed as likely contenders. Nikita Khrushchev was a key member of the so-called Moscow Troika that passed extrajudicial death sentences on thousands of innocent people, including of course fellow Communists considered to be in some way ‘off message.’

Khrushchev’s program of mass murder had always been in perfect harmony with that of Stalin. All party secretaries of district committees and above personally signed and carried out death penalties. Ironically, many were to themselves fall under the same jurisdiction they had used to send others to the deaths. Just two republic-level party secretaries were spared during the great Stalinist “cleansing” program. These were Beria (Caucasus) and Khrushchev (Kiev, Ukraine).

One can be sure that London (and Washington DC) approved of Khrushchev’s curriculum vitae. The Soviet dictator visited London 13 months after his seizure of power. The sycophantic grovelling by Britain’s political elite and their toadying Soviet-style press corps was gut-wrenching.

Such was the monster who was acclaimed by British royalty and Britain’s political elite and its mainstream media journalists when Bulganin and Nikita Khrushchev visited in 1956. Remember this and similar visits by despots posing as statesmen whenever the self-styled British media sanctimoniously carry a story about unproven German atrocities.
