I came across the image above on page 113 of the book I've been intermittently reading called Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America's Enemies, in a chapter titled Reds, Lies, and Audiotape*. This post will not be a review. I have not nearly finished this history book by M. Stanton Evans.. As a slight spoiler of the review, I will say that I've already given the book 2 thumbs ups. Because I've been spending so much time on-line, I only pick this book up on occasion.
The book's first section was an overview of the late 1950s Wisconsin GOP Senator Joe McCarthy's life and his work done in trying to root out Communists from high positions in the US Gov't. Soon after that, I got to this section on a number of traitorous American diplomat/State Dept./high level advisor types that were dealing with China during the midst of World War II. Besides fighting the Japanese, the civil war between Mr. Chiang's Nationalists and Mao's Communists down in Yenan was still simmering.
I had no idea until reading this book how much influence the civilian Commies working for the US Gov't had in swaying opinion of the President and top American military officials toward Mao Tse Tung's side during a couple of critical years. A few of them are shown in the picture above, along with a man who would subsequently run the Communist shitshow of Red China for 27 years with absolute power.
It's just weird to look at the guy in that picture. Without the palace and sycophants he looks like some poor skinny Chinese peon, like a half a billion others who inhabited the place at the time. The traitorous Americans in the picture (believe, me, Mr. Evans goes into detail on what they were up to) put their eggs in his basket for the future of that most important country in the course of world history.
If I'da been there and known what was going to happen, I'd have kicked his scrawny ass right then and there, and then reported back on those American Commies to
That picture goes to show that you never know when history is being made.
* This chapter follows one called Chungking, 1944. I like that name because I see it, and I just know the author, Stanton Evans, really knows what the heck was going on in detail, and also that he uses the old Chinese naming, made up by the English-speaking world to enable US to speak about China.
