    Anarchists are not communists. How is this relevant in any way?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Read it and learn something.

    Or, you could be like Hatuey and reference a fictional work to prove me wrong?

    Yes, in fact I read a great deal about McCarthy and how the communists used McCarthyism to further their own propaganda. If you want to learn more on that era there are plenty of books available with Witness, by Whitaker Chambers, being a good place to start. Two Faiths: The Witness of Whittaker Chambers | Acton Institute The use of propaganda on the democracies was communists greatest triumphs. Only the Nazis came close.

    It's hard to believe that the terrors of communism were taught in very many schools, given the number of present-day leftists in academia.

    Sigh, links don't seem to work for you, so here we go again:

    Chapter 7

    Thus while Oswald's real intentions, assuming that they were known to himself, are not clear, he may not have intended to go to the Soviet Union directly, if at all.377 It appears that he really wanted to go to Cuba. In his wife's words:

    I only know that his basic desire was to get to Cuba by any means, and that all the rest of it was window dressing for that purpose.378
    Marina Oswald testified that her husband engaged in Fair Play for Cuba Committee activities "primarily for purposes of self-advertising. He wanted to be arrested. I think he wanted to get into the newspapers, so that he would be known." 379 According to Marina Oswald, he thought that would help him when he got to Cuba.380 He asked his wife to help him to hijack an airplane to get there, but gave up that scheme when she refused.381
    The Cubans would not, however, give him a visa until he had received one from the Soviets, which involved a delay of several months. When faced with that situation Oswald became greatly agitated, and although he later unsuccessfully attempted to obtain a Soviet visa at the Soviet Embassy in Mexico City, he insisted that he was entitled to the Cuban visa because of his background, partisanship, and personal activities on behalf of the Cuban movement. He engaged in an angry argument with the consul who finally told him that "as far as he was concerned he would not give him a visa" and that "a person like him [Oswald] in place of aiding the Cuban Revolution, was doing it harm."
    The Warren Commission is fiction too? This is all well known information apdst, Oswald tried to defect to Cuba - the Cubans made it public ages ago when they denied the visa that even his wife knew he wouldn't get. The CIA knew, the FBI knew. The Cubans knew. Books of fiction even know about this. Everyone except you seems to know about this. Quit digging deeper.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    From the link.
    Luigi Galleani (Italian: [luˈidʒi ɡalleˈani]; August 12, 1861 – November 4, 1931) was an Italian anarchist active in the United States from 1901 to 1919, viewed by historians as an anarcho-communist and an insurrectionary anarchist.

    How many times are you going to have to be told: IT'S A FICTIONAL WORK!

    You tell ME to stop digging and then you're going to post a fiction book as your evidence that I'm wrong? um...

    What's next? You're going to tell us that Joe McCarthy created the HUAC and was it's chairman?

    The Warren Commission which the book uses to lay out its argument is fictional work. Got it.

    Warren Commission - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Thus while Oswald's real intentions, assuming that they were known to himself, are not clear, he may not have intended to go to the Soviet Union directly, if at all.377 It appears that he really wanted to go to Cuba. In his wife's words:

    I only know that his basic desire was to get to Cuba by any means, and that all the rest of it was window dressing for that purpose.
    378
    Chapter 7

    he insisted that he was entitled to the Cuban visa because of his background, partisanship, and personal activities on behalf of the Cuban movement.
    Chapter 7

    You've officially jumped off the deep end apdst. Not only do you not know what a fact is (for example: Oswald tried to defect to Cuba and was denied. This was admitted by his wife and the Cubans). You also don't know what a theory is (for example: The Cubans and Oswald worked together to kill Kennedy). And you also don't seem to think that the Warren Commission (where all of this is proven/disproven) is a fictional work.
