Reds Turn on Putin
By Cliff Kincaid
Some communists have turned on Vladimir Putin. An article in the CPUSA's People's World now proclaims:
Putin regime emerges as the main danger to global peace and security
Somehow, somewhere, in the upper reaches of the hierarchy of the world communist movement, a decision has been made that Putin is doing more harm than good to the communist cause. The invasion has backfired.
The CPUSA had previously been agitating against NATO and Nazis in Ukraine. Now their tune has changed. Why?
Here's what the article by John Bachtell says:
Bachtell, a major figure in the CPUSA, has concluded that Putin has departed from communist orthodoxy and has instead embraced Russian nationalism, not communism. Bechtel calls for regime change in Russia!
This may mean Putin's day are numbered.
Bachtell's bio identifies him as president of Long View Publishing Co., the publisher of People's World. He served as national chair of the Communist Party USA from 2014 to 2019.
There are a number of factors at work here. We will be exploring them in the days ahead. Suffice it to say that the pressure will increase on Putin in the days ahead.
Notice his condemnation of "extreme nationalism." Putin is said to have gone capitalist. In other words, Putin went beyond communism.
It's the "wealthy cabal" that may have a shot at dislodging Putin. But Putin will either kill his enemies, jail them, or make them "disappear."
These developments bear close watching. The CPUSA is plugged into the world communist movement.
It looks like Putin will be deposed, or at least that's the plan, so that a new system of "collective security" can be imposed. This is the old United Nations "New World Order" plan I have been writing about for decades.
Bachtell says Putin is really a right-winger, alleging:
The CPUSA leader is actually referring to influence on Putin from Alexander Dugin, a figure in our Back from the Dead book.
This controversy may reflect a division among factions of the KGB.
