I have no link. I have a printed copy of the book. I'll provide more bibliographic data if needed.
Okay, thanks! :thumbs:
Patrascanu was the first Minister of Justice under the new Communist order in Romania. As many Party members did, he found himself interrogated and detained, and was sharing a prison cell with Wurmbrand.
Patrascanu looked uncomfortable; but he was frank. "Our long-range purpose is to communize the world. There are few who want to go all the way with us, but we always find some who are willing for their own reasons to go with us for a time. First we had the Rumanian ruling classes and the king, who backed the Allies against the Nazis. When they had served our purpose, we destroyed them. We won over the Orthodox Church with promises, then used the smaller sects to undermine it. We used the famers against the landlords and later the poor peasants against the rich farmers—and now all of them will be collectivized together. These are Lenin's tactical ideas, and they work!"
I said, "Everyone knows that all your fellow-travelers have been jailed, executed or somehow destroyed in the past. How can you hope to go on using people and throwing them away?"
Patrascanu laughed. "Because they are stupid. Here's an example. Ten years after World War I, the great Bolshevist thinker Bukharin opposed Trotsky's plans for making world revolution by force of arms. He argued that it was better to wait until the capitalist countries came to blows among themselves; Russia could then join the winning side and take the lion's share of conquered countries. A remarkable prophecy—but no one took it seriously. If the West had known that half of Europe and two-thirds of Asia would become Communist as a result, the last war would never have taken place. Fortunately our enemies don't listen to our argument or read our books, so we speak openly."
I pointed out a flaw in his argument. "Don't you see, Mr. Patrascanu, that as you used people and then cast them aside, so your comrades have used you and thrown you away? Haven't you blinded yourself to the evil logic of Lenin's doctrine?"
For once Patrascanu's bitterness was unconcealed. He said: "When Danton was driven to the guillotine and saw Robespierre watching from a balcony, he called out, 'You will follow me!' And I assure you now that they will follow me—Ana Pauker, Georgescu and Luca, too."
So they did, within three years.

Now listen to a caller into the Rush Limbaugh Show:
My name is Irina, and I appreciate that you took my call, and I want to say special thank you to your team. They were very nice to me. I was born in Moscow. I came here 14 years ago. I was 35 years old. Now I'm 50. And I want to tell you, I'm very optimistic. I feel with all my guts that Romney will win this election. But I still have fear, and I'm terrified by seeing what's going on four years in this country. I'm terrified that people can put an Obama in Oval Office, back again.
I see whole symptoms, Rush. They're there. What terrified in any way people... I communicate with many people, and I see how uneducated and unopen-minded they are. They cannot believe it, what they hearing.
... sometimes in the back of your common sense, sometimes your heart can tell you when people are lying and when they are not. And those celebrities, trust me: If they make a movie, they play certain characters. It doesn't mean anything. People have to understand it. They know exactly how to fly airplane if they playing the pilot? Absolutely not. And even celebrities who travel all over the world and they see the life in other countries, they have to be smart and understand that Obama using them.
. . . He using minority groups to get to the point that they elect him.
. . . And question number one: Do they understand when he use them, what happened after that?
