ED Noor: Interesting article but a bit short on naming names. Or political organizations such as BLM or Antifa. Or Tides etc. Or Soros and company.
The intent of U.S. UW efforts is to exploit a hostile power’s political, military, economic, and psychological vulnerabilities by developing and sustaining resistance forces to accomplish U.S. strategic objectives.
Enabling a resistance movement or insurgency entails the development of an underground and guerrilla forces, as well as supporting auxiliaries for each of these elements.
Resistance generally begins with the desire of individuals to remove intolerable conditions imposed by an unpopular regime or occupying power.
You see, the useful idiots, the leftists who are idealistically believing in the beauty of Soviet socialist or Communist or whatever system, when they get disillusioned, they become the worst enemies. That’s why my KGB instructors specifically made the point: never bother with leftists. Forget about these political prostitutes. Aim higher.This was my instruction: try to get into large-circulation, established conservative media; really filthy-rich movie makers; intellectuals, so-called ‘academic’ circles; cynical, egocentric people who can look into your eyes with angelic expression and tell you a lie. These are the most recruitable people: people who lack moral principles, who are either too greedy or suffer from self-importance. They feel that they matter a lot. These are the people who KGB wanted very much to recruit.They serve purpose only at the stage of destabilization of a nation. For example, your leftists in United States: all these professors and all these beautiful civil rights defenders. They are instrumental in the process of the subversion only to destabilize a nation.When their job is completed, they are not needed anymore. They know too much. Some of them, when they get disillusioned, when they see that Marxist-Leninists come to power ~ obviously they get offended ~ they think that they will come to power. That will never happen, of course.

Embedded in his rhetoric, one notable phrase repeats: “useful idiot.” It occurs 14 times throughout the nearly 3-hour interview. Celebrities, professors, politicians; none are spared the indignity of this dismissive moniker…To Bezmenov, “useful idiots” are the American citizens who are unwittingly manipulated and mobilized to carry out a foreign power’s bidding ~ while thinking it’s their own idea. For proof that these tactics are still alive and well today, one need look no further than the cacophony of celebrity voices that have banded together to self-congratulate for the donations they are making to protesters’ bailout funds. While their giving may be, at best, a genuine effort to assist peaceful protestors, and at worst, a tastelessly virtue signaling attention-grab, either way, it fulfills the 1983 prophecy of the KGB defector.
ED Noor: The goal of such total destruction is to make things so bad they cannot be rebuilt clearing things to that the new world can be built. Fools these people no matter their inspiration.
Protesting in and of itself is not a bad thing. It’s what our country was built on and is our Constitutional right. But local protests are being overrun by busloads of people from out of town. This is something they’re reporting on the news and then officials are being pressured to walk back the statements. However, more than one source has directly told me this is true.
