 An Essay on Historical Writing on Domestic Communism
One consisted of the CPUSA headquarters in New York to which was attributed the regrettable part of Communist history: subordination to Moscow, support for Stalin’s purges, cheers for the Nazi-Soviet Pact, contempt for political democracy, and fervent belief in Marxism-Leninism.
Two weeks later, mid-September, the Comintern informed the CPUSA that this was a wrong guess and provided some guidance on the proper interpretation of the Pact, and one point was that Polish resistance was not to be cheered.
To say that the CPUSA was nothing but a Soviet fifth column in the Cold War would be an exaggeration; it still remains true that the CPUSA’s chief task was the promotion of communism and the interests of the Soviet Union though political means.
