Given the spiraling clashes over fundamental issues that are occurring in Washington, DC and throughout American politics at the moment, often based on provable lies, it is worth reminding ourselves of the prescient warning of why it is happening, from one of the subversives whose profession was to create this chaos: the KGB’s socialist propaganda master Yuri Bezmenov.
Here is a 7-minute excerpt of the longer video that is presented at the top of this page (continued below):
The following is adapted from my 2018 report for SaveTheWest, FAKE NEWS: What it is, who’s creating it, how to identify it, and how to help stop it.
While America could not infiltrate the public dialogue within the USSR, the KGB — the communists’ version of our CIA — set up elaborate networks of operatives in North America and Western Europe, to wage what it termed “cultural warfare” against us. Specifically, they targeted three primary institutions: our news organizations, our schools, and our entertainment industry.
Long-dismissed by many USSR-supporting Western intellectuals as conspiracy theories, this was all confirmed by one of the KGB’s top propaganda masters, Yuri Bezmenov, who finally had enough of the lies and oppression, and defected to the West in 1970. Over the next fourteen years, Bezmenov tried to warn America what he and his comrades had done to us, for what he described as their “cultural subversion” efforts, which were designed to accomplish the following objectives:
♦ To pit various interest groups of Americans against each other, based on lies — specifically in regards to racial, economic and ethnic issues
♦ To undermine our ability to have civil, fact-based discussions about the most vital issues of our time
♦ To cause general cynicism
♦ To eat away at our trust in our major governmental, civic and business institutions
Bezmenov explained that although KGB operatives anticipated meeting with resistance, they were “welcomed with open arms” in the American institutions they targeted for infiltration.
In 1984, Bezmenov gave an expansive video interview about what he and his comrades had done to America, and that in order to undo it, if we started at that moment:
“You’ll need 15 or 20 years to educate a new generation of patriotically-minded and common-sense people.”
