Not a Book for Children


The Spurious Scandal of 'Communism for Kids'


Jacob Blumenfeld

To the dismay of parents everywhere, the MIT Press recently published a little red and white book titled "Communism for Kids." It teaches children how to run gulags, imitate genocidal dictators, praise Satan and pretty much destroy Western civilization -- all for a reasonable price of $12.95. The author proudly endorses Barack Obama, Joseph Stalin, Bernie Sanders, Mao, Fidel Castro and millions of other communists who murdered 80 billion people, all the while surreptitiously spreading Jewish, queer and anti-American values to the next generation of freedom-seeking youngsters. At least, that's more or less the story according to Breitbart, National Review, American Conservative, The Daily Beast, The Daily Signal, Alex Jones, Rush Limbaugh, Milo Yiannopoulos, Steven Crowder, The Blaze, Pamela Geller, The Christian Truther, The Washington Free Beacon and Fox News.

Not to mention the tens of thousands of tweets, Facebook posts, YouTube videos and Amazon reviews that virulently concur.

There's only one small problem: None of it is true.
