KGB's file on Columbia dates back to one of the first
Soviet illegals. Werner Rakov, a Soviet trade representative, enrolled in
Columbia in 1925. Paul Massing, a "social researcher" spied for the KGB,
and helped his wife, Heidi, recruit members of the forerunner of the CIA.
Whittaker Chambers studied at Columbia before joining the Communist Party of
the USA (CPUSA).
Elizabeth Bentley did too.
Bill Ayers earned his Education degrees at Columbia Teachers College.
Cy Oggins, a hapless American agent for the KGB, shot dead in the basement of the KGB's
headquarters, studied at Columbia in 1920s. And young Barry Obama earned a
One of the Soviet's supreme covert influence agents, Dr. George S. Counts,
joined the International Institute at Columbia Teachers College in 1927.
With no background, he was hired to specialize in Russia. Immediately sent
to Moscow, and provided with a highly intelligent Russian assistant, he was
recruited by the KGB within a year. His powerful covert influence
operations, guided by the Soviets, planted the seeds of anti-American
political correctness that destroyed our education system. Even today
American education students cite Counts in their radical dissertations.
The KGB is not all-powerful. They are very tenacious, focused, and
professional. They never take their eye off the ball. Even when the
Politburo was purging KGB officers -calling them home and putting a bullet
in their neck - they still operated successfully, up to the day they got on
the boat for Moscow. The agents they left behind were well-trained and
continued operating. Their covert influence operations did not need KGB
officers to maintain. Once they were begun, funded, and operating, the
covert influence took on a life of its own. Like kudzu devouring Georgia,
political correctness has engulfed our country.
The KGB targeted the three main cultural transmitters: education/academia,
the media, and Hollywood. The anti-American messages (America is a racist,
foreigner-hating, sexist imperialistic, hating culture), implanted like
advertising, went viral. A KGB officer did not need to be at every meeting
of radicals. The KGB chose its influence agents carefully. It provided the
American "Willing Accomplices" with the messages, and then got out of the
way. The message exploded across American society.
The KGB influence agent at Columbia, Dr. Counts, created the anti-American
point of view in education and academia. In his 1932 speeches "Dare the
School Build a New Social Order," declared to American teachers that they
needed to "change society." Counts told American teachers that they had a
duty to bring about a new age of collectivism. Counts told teachers that
the "age of individualism is dead."
