Questionable Nikita Khrushchev Quote

“We cannot expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism.”

Nikita KhrushchevNikita Khrushchev
~ Nikita Khrushchev

Attributed to Nikita Khrushchev. Entered into Congressional Record, July 26, 1961, p. 12622 by Sen. J. Strom Thurmond,  in which Ezra Taft Benson summarized his encounter with Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev in September 1959.

WOW! He actually said this.

Jim, Lombard, IL

He was right. It's working here!

Chad, Bethesda, MD

It's actually a terrible quote since it's actually happening to America (or Amerika) now. Castro now supports the Demokratic party, what a surprise that is! Individuals and protecting their rights have made the USA the most prosperous country in the world's history. Expanding government with "social" programs and government-approved education creates more citizens dependent on the same government and ignorant to historical facts and believing the government will "take care of me". Complete BS.

I am old enough to rememeber what the Russians think of Our Freedoms and Our Rights to worship and the rights we give to others to worship NOT exactly what ATHIESTIC UNBELIEVERS IN the FATHER SON AND the HOLY SPIRIT and GOSPEL OF CHRIST JESUS HOLY BIBLE BOOK ALL the world HAS had. LIKE TO ACCEPT ... GOD BLESS AMERICA SHE AND LADY LIBRERTY is still standing and again fighting for her FREEDOM and HER RIGHTS!!! and now also for the RIGHT OF THE JEWISH people and their LAND!!!

Gary, Bellingham

We are just a hop, skip and a jump away from a military dictatorship under George W. Bush. He has his Patriot Act. He has demonstrated his complete contempt for the rule of law. He has moved the U.S. Army stateside to act as his personal military under his complete control, shredding Posse Comitatus. And now the Bush regime-induced market crash. Mussolini could take lessons from Herr Busch.

Terrifying, but useful. I’m 15, so I’m obliged to resent what “Cg, Tx” says. But sadly, must concur. I am giving a speech on this quote for my US history class, here’s my last few sentences; Only when our fundamental principles are granted a higher authority than any government bureau will we have this “peace.” This, “amity,” that so many feel must come, no matter what the consequences. And yet, what “peace” do we seek? Do we seek the silence of oppression? The tranquility of the subjugated? No, we do not. And as Americans we cannot.

And capitalism is sooooo awesome! Does it have to be one or the other??? I mean, much of Europe is socialist and, having lived there, I really don't think it's as bad as a lot of people IMAGINE BASED ON NO INFORMATION that it is. It is harder there to exploit the little guy so it's harder to become a corporate exploiter. Does America need to be the place where big companies come to create exploitative business practices?? If the answer is yes, then I don't want them. And, if enough people say no then we would have more power.

Dennis, this quote was given by Krushchev to then secretary of agriculture Ezra Taft Benson in 1959 when Benson hosted him on a half day visit to America. Read and then comment lest we believe you are just an ignoramous. And even if you don't believe he said it, then Benson in his wisdom saw the future and was right on target, because it is happening now and you and Tovarich are living proof of it.

Benson was right on! Have you read "The Red Carpet" by Benson? He is dead on. Very prophetic. It is happening under our very noses and most people are just basking in "change". Hmmm not the kinda change I want. I hope all of those that wanted change enjoy the tyranny they will reap.

Ah yes! The unrelenting march from capitalism to socialism to communism. Soon the US will be like Russia - We are almost like Canada already! OMG! Communism is creeping over the North Pole! CLOSE THE BORDER WITH CANADA! Keep their single-payer socialist medicine out, before we all start saying "Eh, like, how's it goin comrade.".

I would like to see these quotes, any quotes, cited for source. Anyone can make these up.

ernie1241, palm springs ca

Supposedly, Khrushchev made this statement to a secret Party meeting in 1959. In reality however it was fabricated by radical right elements within the U.S. and then widely circulated by right-wing politicians and organizations. The Library of Congress, the CIA, J. Edgar Hoover, Sen. James Eastland (Senate Internal Security Subcommittee) and Cong. Francis Walter (House Committee on Un-American Activities) were all unable to verify it. See Congressional Record, 3/8/62, p3676 (2) "You Americans are so gullible. No you won't accept Communism outright, but we'll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you'll finally wake up and find you already have Communism. We won't have to fight you. We'll so weaken your economy until you'll fall like an overripe fruit into our hands." Also a fake quote circulated in ill-informed anti-communist circles. (See same entry in Congressional Record cited above; also see Paul F. Boller Jr., and John George: They Never Said It: A Book of Fake Quotes, Misquotes and Misleading Attributions, Oxford University Press, 1989, page 59.

RobertFB, Everyplace, USA

ernie1241, you took most of the words out of my mouth! To add a bit of info, the "doses of Socialism" quote was created by the John Birch Society in 1960, as a hoax on the public. I agree with what Montana Senator stated before Congress at the time: "Whoever created this quotation and...knowing it to be spurious, nevertheless disseminate it, are cut from the same cloth as Communists and Fascists." I have that book, too (note, Dr. Boller is Professor of History, Emeritus, Texas Christian University, and Dr. George is Professor of Political Science and Sociology at Central State university, OK). The more of these phony right-wing quotes we can debunk,the less people will be misled by falsehoods. And some may come to realize the Right Wing can't make a case without lying. But the next poster will say he/she doesn't care if the quote was false. That's what they always say when their fallacies are exposed. Never let the truth get in your way, right?

Jrebb, Augusta

Robert. you are an idot. Do a little research on Krushev's quotes. Read a freakin' book. Go to Library and look at some old newspapers for God's sake) He said the above quote, in slightly different variations on many different occassions. (unless you believe that the interpreter was a right wing plant).

Jrebb, Augusta

Here's one that says essentially the same thing, look it up. "I can prophecy that your grandchildren in America will live under socialism -- Our firm conviction is that sooner or later Capitalism will give way to Socialism. Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you." - Nikita Krushchev, July 1957

MJaneO, Kenova, WV

These young people are saddling themselves--free loans, free education, extra mortages from the" Big Brother" governement---you will pay with your freedom in your thirties-etc. We were smarter in the 50's with less advanced education, cell phone, computers, then the pampered pooches (kids) these days.

Edward Creed, Somewhere

"This is true as to what is happening here. Only us older people are realizing it and we were out voted by the young idiots, with no job wanting a hand out from commie Obama. Gun sales are brisk here too." I don't mean to call yo out specifically, sir, for that I apologies, but, I am a young person who does not meet your description. I am appalled by recent events and I don't want obama's hand outs. I see the thing that are happening in our beautiful country and I find them discusting. "I have personally witnessed the heart-rending results of the loss of freedom. I have talked face-to-face with the godless Communist leaders. It may surprise you to learn that I was host to Mr. Khrushchev for a half-day when he visited the United States. Not that I'm proud of it. I opposed his coming then, and I still feel it was a mistake to welcome this atheistic murderer as a state visitor. As we talked face-to-face, he indicated that my grandchildren would live under Communism. After assuring him that I expected to do all in my power to assure that his, and all other grandchildren, will live under freedom, he arrogantly declared, in substance: 'You Americans are so gullible. No, you won't accept communism outright. But we'll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won't have to fight you; we'll so weaken your economy until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands.'" -Ezra Taft Benson

    Bleeding heart liberals make me sick. They never want to hold the actual individuals accountable. They bitch when things like 911 happen because they never come out of their little fairy tale bubble. Then they bitch when you try to make sure those things never happen again. You can't have a secure lifestyle without sacrifices. Civil liberty jackasses are the reason why terrorist in this country are free to roam where ever they want. If you aren't guilty of something you shouldn't be whining like a little baby when your govt is trying to keep you safe.

    I don't want my government keeping me safe. I'll take my chances with the terrorists rather than have the government in my business. Ben Franklin, one of our great Founding Fathers said it best: (paraphrasing) "He who gives up liberty in exchange for security deserves neither." I concur.

    I don't think Obama is communist or a socialist he is a realist. I do not think all Republicans are extremist or all democrats are extremist. I do know that the word Capitalist means the one that holds Capital and uses it for their profit. Socialism meaning creating social programs that benefit without profit and paid for by taxing all workers and industrialist. What we have had is a mixed Democracy with both systems and each not managed well for All the people. I watch C-Span for news-live from Congress-no media opinion news or sensationlism. What I have witness is two parties with different idiologies which we should have but never loaded with one single idiology of extremist. We are witnessing dictatorship tactics when it is all my way or nothing. This will totally dismantle our government and created by fear and false witnesses, people that were a part of the problem but take no responsibility that weighs heavy now term is a gang. They believe every voting American sent them to Congress to hold the most seat for their single idiology, not so. People are buying the worst. They should fear dismantling before we have programs that someone can prove to be better. So far the extremist right proved they would dismantle regulations in banking, lending, Wall Street, create tax cuts that benefit 2% and we watched our middle-class deminish. We have watch with Bush Tax Cuts jobs leave our country more bankruptcy's and closing than in our history with no job creation. We watched an unplanned ware responded with vengence before budge or end consequences. They created Medicare Part D without a budget without working with drug companies for fair value. More out of pocket expences from many that cannot afford but we all write off medical expenses and the bankrupty's and unpaid bills to providers as losses. Ever think these write offs would pay for a program if people also paid a small affordable premium and co-pays. Huge loss of Revenues in Write Offs-tax cuts and subsidies not needed across the board and they are not managed for fraud. Yet they believe all workers cheat but the wealthy do not. Come on our law makers made all of this possible by legallizing Revenue killers. I is legal to write off your multible homes held in trust or Corporations as business expense. These homes high dollar real estate investments with all the write offs hey they benefit. They even have family members living in some so they can say a visit is for business meetings same with so many expense write offs. All of the cuts and write offs on the American workers back and the proof is who got wealthy and who lost everything the middle-class, Chain retail stores scale back-closing bankruypt like other small retail business. The Republican party telling us these write offs help small business no or we would not watched so many close. I think they might be taking about the small business accountants, lawers, CPA's? Certainly thinking about fund managers, industrialist, inherited wealth shelter please we get it all now. Thank you for exposing America maybe we will vote more responsibility as we cannot find jobs or ones that pay enough to spend. This has been happening since Clinton worse with globalization. We are in deep trouble country and people. Those that have the ability absolutely do not have the willingness to help their country or countryman. They call themselves American and Christian, not in the belief of many. We don't need to worry about becoming socialist we need to worry about being ruled by money and power = A Dictatorship one idiology A former Republican.

      Mary, you really don't know what you're talking about. Tax cuts didn't cause jobs to leave our country, the government did via over regulating and high tax rates. Banks were forced by the government to give out loans to people who weren't capable or able to pay them back because to deny them would be racism. Zero down loans, no credit check, no employment verification was a recipe for disaster. Pres Bush knew it was a problem and the Republicans summoned the housing regulators to testify before congress 3 different times to try and prevent the housing market crash, and each time the Democrats on the committee prevented anything being done by accusing the Republican party of trying to solve a problem that didn't exist. Barney Frank, and his democrat associates were complete A holes toward the regulator who was being questioned by them. It was on C-SPAN. You should look it up since that's where you get your new from.

      The only difference between Socialism and Communisum is the amount of force required to implement it. Carl Marx was not an idiot and knew that the masses would not except his philosphy as given and it would require a large army to enforce it. Read the 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto and compare it with our current government's policies & agencies. Most of them have been implemented and if Leftist H & B Clinton, and Obama,have their way, We will be a weakened Nation militarily and an unarmed citizenry and we'll have United Nations thugs patroling our streets. Rape and murder will be the rule of the day. Americans, get your apathetic heads out of the dark recesses of your body.

I assume if you came from as poor of a family as me you'd understand, but I can't expect the bourgesie to. If am a god loving, and people loving individual. We as America, the richeest nation in the world, still have starving and homeless people, all because the owners of some buisness don't have enough millions in their pocket, so they pick up and leave. So families like mine would be dead if it weren't for socialist type programs. I want you to know that trying to stop the socialist type programs here in the united states, you'd kill as many people as "communism" has in a short time, but keep using the fact that you're older to push your political agenda.

      Here's a list of communist goals for America from a few decades ago. Note the substantial overlap between these goals and the Dem platform. The "progress" that liberals have made is scary. The quote may not be a direct one, but the underlying intent is similar and unmistakable.

      [From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]

      1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
      2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
      3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
      4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
      5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
      6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
      7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
      8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
      9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
      10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
      11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
      12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
      13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
      14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
      15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
      16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
      17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
      18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
      19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
      20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
      21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
      22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
      23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
      24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
      25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
      26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
      27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."
      28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
      29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
      30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
      31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
      32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
      33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
      34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
      35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
      36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
      37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
      38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
      39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
      40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
      41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
      42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use united force to solve economic, political or social problems.
      43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
      44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
      45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

      We are not supporting the United States by supporting the Zionist State ("Israel")--if anything, we are undermining the future of America. The establishment and continued support of the Zionist State ("Israel") is an ongoing atrocity against the Arab People and against Muslims, in general. It was not in America's best interest to help establish the Zionist State, nor is it in America's best interest to continue supporting it. Besides, it is hypocritical of Zionist Christians to support Zionist Jews--since they believe the Jews are going to Hell because they don't believe in Jesus Christ!

      Funny how those individuals who live off the hard work of others, discount this quote - Even if he didn't say it, it happened. FDR's boys and girls were highly impressed with the Soviet Union. Too bad most of them were around to see it crash and burn.

      I think liberals are gullible scammed sheep who do exactly what they are told by those who talk pretty but have no good intentions.
      The ARABs will have peace when they love their children more than they hate Jews, and stop blowing them up as suicide bombers and haters. Israel will be standing when the rest of the Arab nations are dust. God is in control, and we know the ending.

      I hope liberals are the first to see their life, liberty, pursuit of happiness destroyed while the rest of us fight like Patrick Henry

      Liberals are proof of the dumming down of America
      I graduated high school in 1971 schools then taught you vocations (for you Libtards that's careers) and we had 33+kids in each class
      Now since 1977 the federal government centralized education made class sizes smaller (claiming our children would have better education because of smaller classes and more one on one experiences) and are kids can't do anything out of high school
      Hell they might as well quit school after elementary school
      Kids need better education but it starts in jr high and high school not college
      Why do we keep our kids in school for 12 years only to have them come out not being able to do anything

        Devon from New Castle -"socialist-type programs" took over the role of the Church and forced people to pay for the provisions. There are still churches where people can go for help, but the services are volunteered and donated by willing believers.

          I had thought to add, "and they're still at it," but the miles of comments (blogs?) have inundated me, so I'll not say it (LOL )

          Let us try this on for size ! " Praxeology " Deductive Study of Human Action. The Order of the whole and its Unity. " Society Endorses activities that are Morally equivalent to the glazier hiring a boy to break windows." Purposely Environmentally induced Dyslexia. GxE interations, myself being a fraternal twin, it has been a great opportunity, for exposure to Good parental education and teaching quality. Inherent qualities of the Gene suppressed in society. Bridging the gap, a teachers challenge ! Almost beyond imagination when exposed to such corruption on a massive scale.
          The highest rate of D/V, and Dyslexia, if every I have witnessed. concentrated within Oregon in one county. People treated as cattle, made to be so, through socialistic experimentation. The violent tendencies due to envy of another. Made evident today reading this blog. One has to educate dyslexic individuals through example. This instills good moral judgment. A slow process, but does work. The quote in its observation is Spot On. !!

          Interesting comments, apparently this quote is recycled from time to time? A dated timeline for the commentary would be helpful here. Interesting, how righties and lefties accuse each other of lying on this post. of course, we all know the lefties worship communism/socialism, and Liberty is anathema to those clamouring to suck welfare teat in a nanny-state. I fear we approach critical mass as a society, we cannot go much longer without addressing the irreconcilable divide between Liberty-loving Patriots, and our authoritarian-state-worshipping mushbrains on the left. Hussein-Obama is such a slick-talking snake-oil pitcher, he makes membership in the nanny-state sound like a lifetime pass to Disneyland, whilst dictating no more than the expenses extracted from a few tenths of the one-percenters. HOW DISGUSTING, to witness the successful brainwashing of our American brethren - WE ARE NOT IN KANSAS, ANYMORE. I wish all you idiot lefties would self-deport to Sweden - your Sheeplish dreamland! DNC is in-the-tank for tyranny - that is for certain. If we could arrest criminal hierarchy of GOP, we could still reclaim our Constitutional Govt and Liberty - but then, that's nothing the lefties want whatsoever!

          Happening waaaay faster in Canada.
          Where can I find the quote that goes something like we won't be able to convince(?) the grandparents, or their children, but will be able to teach(?) their grandchildren?
