Something We Didn’t Tell
Admitting, then, that the events of Fatima have been treated shamefully in some quarters, it can still be said with safety that there is something more to the reasons why an ungrateful world has failed to comply. To me, the answer is one vastly serious omission — the failure of Fatima enthusiasts to stress the alternative to acceptance of the great message, an alternative that is so horrible to contemplate that it is just possible the proper study of it could tip the scales in favor of public response. In all truth, some writers have touched upon it but the real terror, that would grip an American city on the appointed day of revolution, has been ignored; but, make no mistake about it, it is this phase of Red plans which comprises the dreaded alternative to acceptance of Fatima. If our Catholic people can be brought to see what is in store for us, according to Communist drawn strategy, it is this writer’s belief, that they would eagerly grasp at the chance to obey Our Lady’s request, for refusal to accept the Virgin’s plan is to invite chaos.
Former Communists, who have abandoned the party, seem to be of one mind in endeavoring to remind us that their training, while agents of Moscow, was principally directed toward correct planning for the day of revolution. It is important that we understand now that this looked-for day is not to be regarded as a myth. It is one of the most essential steps in the Communist grab for power. To enable the reader to understand this, I quote from the account of Kenneth Goff, who left the ranks of the Reds in the 1940’s:
“At that hour, two large riots are supposed to take place in every city of any size. Leaders of these mobs are to be carefully chosen and trained in advance. The disturbances are to be of such extent as to require sending large forces of police to those areas. While the authorities are trying to quell these riots, picked bands of Reds are to seize the radio stations and telephone exchanges. With the aid of their comrades who are employed inside, all communication systems are to be instantly crippled.
“Flying squads of Communists are to seize control of the water supply and shut it off; also the electrical power and gas. This means that no elevators or street cars are to be running. Homes would be without water, fuel or light. It would be impossible to communicate with friends or loved ones, even in another part of the city.
“Goon squads of professional murderers are to round up the people in business districts. Men are to be held as hostages in some of the larger buildings…
“These are exactly the methods used in Russia, Spain and other places where the Communist Party has been allowed to organize and come to fruition. They firmly expect to do the same thing in the United States.
“Bridges, subways and street car stations are to be blown up. Downtown areas are to be isolated from the rest of the city. Sharpshooters and snipers are to be detailed in taxicabs and vehicles, which are to be taken over, to wipe out the police, soldiers, uniformed persons and known vigilantes. Smoke bombs properly located in subways, buildings and large stores, are to add to the terror of the people.
