We need constant reminders that Communism is a fait accompli in the West and that freedom and democracy are an empty charade. In 1954, Bella Dodd, a high ranking defector from the US Communist Party, warned us that Masonic Jewish bankers are behind Communism, and this satanic cult controls the USA.
Her book “School of Darkness” requires a revisit.
“The objectives of Communism are being steadily advanced…The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous, he cannot believe it exists.” -J Edgar Hoover (1956)
By Henry Makow Ph.D.
Bella Dodd was a Communist Party of America (CPUSA) leader in the 1930′ s and 1940’s. Her book, “School of Darkness” (1954) reveals that Communism was a hoax perpetrated by financiers “to control the common man” and to advance world tyranny. Naturally this important book is out-of-print and not in any used bookstores. It can be read online here. [It has recently been reprinted and is available here.]
Bella Dodd was born Maria Asunta Isabella Visono in Italy about 1904. A brilliant and dedicated woman, she graduated from Hunter College and NYU Law School. She became head of the New York State Teachers Union and was a member of the CPUSA’s National Council until 1949.
Dodd describes Communism as “a strange secret cult” whose goal is the destruction of Western (i.e. Christian) Civilization. Millions of naive idealists (“innocents”) are tricked by its talk of helping the poor, but it cares only for power. For example, Dodd found there was no social research at party headquarters. “We are a revolutionary party, not a reform party,” she was told. (163)
