Inside Job - -The Story Of Trotskyite Intrigue In The Labor Movement

A section and citations from the book "İnside Job -The Story Of Trotskyite Intrigue In The Labor Movement   " by Herb Tank

"But you read Trotsky!"
"My dear fellow, Trotsky is the Nietzsche of espionage, the apostle of panic and provocation."  Conversation between two spies



""Five men walked into the union headquarters of Local 856 of the United Auto Workers Union in Akron. "


"The Dodge-Chicago plant was just outside of Chicago....The Trotskyites were moving in. The Dodge-Chicago plant of the Chrysler Corporation was a key war plant. It was the largest airplane engine plant in the world. 

The Trotskyites worked fast. They quickly welded all the rotten elements into a bloc in order to capture the new UAW local's first election . 

First of all they grabbed hold of the job-seekers, the petty opportunists. These guys had ambitions to fill union posts, but they didn't have much ability. They were glad to stooge for the Trotskyites in exchange for a "line." The Trotskyites would teach them how to sound like trade union leaders. "

"That was on Thursday, May 16, 1946, one month  ' before the scheduled waterfront strike. 
Some of the seamen took leaflets without looking at them and walked into the hall. Other seamen refused to accept them. They recognized the girls as the same ones that some-times handed out the Trotskyite sheet, the Militant, before union meetings at Manhattan Center. "

"Inside the lobby of the N.M.U. building a group of seamen were looking over one of the leaflets. 
"This is the Kinkiest leaflet I've read in a long time," one sailor growled. "

The Trotskyite leaflet was against the strike. It said the strike was only a political strike and shouldn't be supported by the seamen. "

"Hard-hitting Vicente Lombardo Toledano, chief of the Latin-American labor movement, was sore. Trotsky was in Mexico. 

The Mexican labor movement was angry, too. Over four thousand delegates to the National Congress of the Mexican Confederation of Labor prepared to listen as Toledano rose to present his resolution on Trotsky."


"The teamsters learned about Trotskyism the hard way. The Teamsters' Union had quite a reputation for corruptness and rackets anyway. There had always been a number of dishonest officials in that union, and nobody in the top leadership did anything about it."


"He walked over to the nearest Trotskyite and knocked the Militant· out of his hand. Kelly was sore. 
"Listen, Bud," Kelly said, "if you want your picture taken with something in your hand, then pick up one of those picket signs with our demand for a 30 per cent wage increase on it. That's what the union people want to read, not your Militant."


"All during the trial the State Prosecutor, Vishinsky, had spoken in a low soft voice. In a calm, almost detached manner, he drew from the accused the full story of their crimes. For the spectators, sitting in the October Room of the Moscow House of Trade Unions where the trial was being held, it was almost like seeing a crime movie backwards."


Beneath the world's slick exterior of governments, and diplomats, and pious speeches is the vast network of machinery that runs the world. Right alongside the speech-makers, but not as visible to the naked eye, stands Big Business, the bankers and their buddies, the munitions men, the oil men, the big industrialists, whose interests determine the real aims of governments, if not always their outward appearance. But a slick exterior alone doesn't maintain their power. Their power rests on an underworld  of violence, crime and corruption. The underworld of capitalism is international. 

In the complicated structure of international Big Business there is always dirty work to be done. And there are people to do it. People who break strikes for a living; stool pigeons who spy on unions; characters who specialize in manipulating public opinion through incidents, race riots, rumors; some do it with their pens, and others have rougher techniques, but whatever the job is, capitalism has produced the men for it.

Trotsky entered this political underworld of Big Business. And the political underworld needed Trotsky. For though it is true that the power of Big Business shaped the destinies of nations, this was only true for the capitalist world. One-sixth of the world was socialist. One-sixth of the world was being shaped by the power of the working class. 

Big Business was not happy about losing one-sixth of the earth'·s surface. They wanted it back. 

Big Business had been attacking the Soviet Union head on. Their methods were crude. Common people all over the world  were beginning to see right through the Bolshevik bogeyman that was painted for them by Big Business and its propagandists. Trotsky presented the capitalist underworld with new techniques for attacking the Soviet Union and the labor movement. The Trotskyite way was the counterfeit way. Through super-militant, very leftist and very radical phrases, Trotsky called for the overthrow of the Soviet Government, not because the country was socialist, but because it was not socialist enough. The technique was clever and confusing. Hitler learned it, too, and called himself a National Socialist much to the amusement of the big German industrialists he was working for. 

The exiled Trotsky made himself at home in the capitalist underworld with his chauffeurs, secretaries, bodyguards and the political careerists who tagged after him. Everywhere he built up his Trotskyite cliques. Everywhere he denounced the Soviet Union in the name of the world revolution. The capitalist press opened up their pages to Trotsky. The world witnessed a strange sight: William Randolph Hearst roaring that Stalin had betrayed the world revolution and Hearst by not making revolution all over the world. It was a strange sight-but it was also confusing.

The foreign intelligence services of capitalist countries value highly the services of renegades. Winston Churchill had taken note of Trotsky's activities. "Trotsky," he wrote, "strives to rally the underworld of Europe to the overthrow of the Russian Army." 

Back in 1926 Trotsky had been ready to meet the intelligence services of the capitalist countries more than . half way. That year he ordered his stooge Rakovsky: "to sound out conservative circles in the capitalist countries ... to what extent the Trotskyites can count on their support." Trotsky maintained his cliques --and factions within the Soviet Union. By making deals with Trotsky Big Business was able to secure the services of the Trotskyite agents within the borders of the first socialist country. The fascists wasted no time. They made a deal. Germany and Japan would get certain areas of the Soviet Union; Trotsky and his gang would be placed into power. 

Wrote Trotsky in a letter revealed by the Trotskyite agent, Karl Radek: 
"It must be admitted that the question of power will become a practical issue for the Bloc only as a result of the defeat of the U.S.S.R. in war. For this the. Bloc must make energetic ,preparations . . . . "
The letter stressed the "victory of German fascism," and in it Trotsky ordered that "the diversive acts of the Trotskyites in war industries': were to be carried out under the "supervision of the German and Japanese High Commands." The letter also revealed the concessions in land and resources Trotsky had to agree to in order to get the support of the German fascists. 

With a rare talent for detail and organization Trotsky built up his gang into a model organization for crime, treason, terror and sabotage. 

The organization was built on three levels. If one was exposed the other could continue.

1-The Trotskyite-Zinovievite Terrorist Center. In charge of terrorist activities. They were the Trotskyite Murder,Inc.

2. Tiotskyite Parallel Center. In charge of sabotage of industry.

3. Bloc of Rights and Trotskyites: The leading organization; made up of high ranking people within the government. It brought together all the opposition forces.

Russia's fifth column took concrete form. 
On December 1, 1934, Sergei Kirov, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union,' was murdered.

The murderer was caught red-handed. 

The official Communique stated: 
"The investigation has established that the motive for the killing of Kirov was a plan of this under'world anti-Soviet group to disorganize the leadership of the Soviet Government by means of terrorist acts directed against its chief leaders and hereby effect a change in policy along the lines of the so-called Zinoviev-Trotsky platform .... "
On December 28, 1935, Pichugin and Porshinev, two mine workers working in the Kuznetsk coal field, were gassed by carbon monoxide. The alertness of another miner prevented the tragedy from being far worse.

On September 23, 1936, an explosion took place in the same mine. Ten men were killed and fourteen severely injured. Among the dead were some of the most active , and militant workers in the mine. 

The trial which opened on November 19, 1936, revealed the true nature of the poison that had killed these militant workers. It was a deadly mixture of two elements: fascism and Trotskyism! 

The trial revealed that the sabotage in the mines and th,e murder of the miners was the work of certain engineers: 

-Emil Stickling, a fascist agent; Shubin, Trotskyite;

Noskov, Trotskyite;
And a number of other dissident elements who dreamed of  returning the socialist land to the underworld of Big Business. 

In the meanwhile cool and calculated Trotskyite murder struck in the shadow of the Kremlin. On June 18, 1936, the great and beloved writer, Maxim Gorky, died, murdered by one Dr. Levin, a Trotskyite agent. Dr. Levin admitted he had murdered his patient by an overdose of certain medicines. And Gorky had not been the first patient murdered by the Trotskyite doctor! The doctor confessed to the murder of Menzhinsky, chairman of the O.G.P.U., Kuibyshev, chairman of the National Economic Council, and Peshkov, Gorky's son; all murdered on orders from the Bloc of Rights and Trotskyites! 

The people of the Soviet Union were engaged in the serious business of building socialism, of building workers' republics on one-sixth of the earth's surface. They were determined that their socialist land would never be returned to the capitalist underworld. 

And they were not going to permit the agents of the capitalist underworld to continue to sabotage socialist construction and to continue to murder their working class leaders. 

They ferreted out the Trotskyites: the wreckers, renegades, saboteurs and traitors.

They placed them on trial before the world. 

The trials laid bare the connections between the Trotskyites and the espionage services of capitalist countries. The trials revealed the rotten connections the Trotskyites and their cliques and factions had with German and Japanese fascists and the fascists of every country. Cornered and exposed the Trotskyites confessed:

They had set out to destroy the Communist Party and the Soviet Government. 

They were determined to undermine the defensive power of the Soviet Union, to assist fascist military intervention and to prepare for the defeat of the Red Army. 

They were ready to dismember the first workers' republic, to hand over the Soviet Maritime Region to Japan, Soviet Byelorussia to the Poles and the Soviet Ukraine to the Germans. 

They were prepared to restore the rule of Big Business in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. 

The Soviet Courts found the Trotskyites guilty of treason to the working class. The Trotskyite gang in the Soviet Union was smashed. 

When Hitler attacked the Soviet Union there was no fifth column within its borders to aid him. 

But outside of the Soviet Union, together with the under-world of Big Business, the Trotskyites continued their conspiratorial activities. Disguised by leftist slogans they attached themselves to the growing labor movements all over the world. 

Leon Trotsky, the "old man" his stooges lovingly called him,. was in Mexico. From his fortress villa at Coyacan he directed the work of his agents all over the world. And it was there that the "old man" was murdered. 

On August 20, 1940, a Trotskyite who called himself Frank Jacson, smashed his leader's head in with a·pick-ax.

Said Jacson to the Mexican police: 
" ... in place of finding myself face to face with a political chief who was directing the struggle for the liberation of the working class, I found rriyself before a man who desired nothing more than to satisfy his needs and desires of vengeance and of hate and who did not utilize the workers struggle for anything more than a means of hiding his own paltriness and despicable calculations.
" ... I asked myself very often, from where had come the money for such work. . . . Perhaps the consul of a certain foreign nation who often visited him could answer that question for us .

"It was Trotsky who destroyed my nature, my future and all my affections. He converted me into a man without a name, without country, into an instrument of Trotsky."
Trotsky was finished. 

But Trotskyism continued to roam the capitalist underworld desperately trying to infect labor and progressive peoples' movements with its poison.
