I became Stalin chapter 156
“We now have dozens of ‘fifth rows’ hiding within us! 205 spies of the State Department! 118 people from the Ministry of Defense! even… .”
The young senator, Joseph McCarthy, took a moment to look around the crowd and catch his breath. The saliva that reporters swallowed while he deliberately drank a glass of water while steaming would probably be a rip off.
Lowering his voice a little bit more, with an evil expression on his face, McCarthy spoke.
“Even in what should be the most American in our country, there are dozens of leftists, communists and communists!”
Heh heh heh! Everyone was terrified and held their breath.
McCarthy was obviously talking about the White House. It was truly a bold claim.
The popularity of the current president, FDR, was peaking without realizing that Japan was gradually being driven out of the Western Pacific. Although there were those who admired the fact that FDR and his vice president, Wallace, were pro-communists.
The Soviet Union was on the verge of ending Germany in a bloody battle against Germany, which had preemptively attacked the United States.
In one way or another, the United States and the Soviet Union are inextricably linked.
“Hey, what is the basis for that claim? how… .”
“Here, here is a list of those communists.”
A young reporter raised his hand and asked a question, and McCarthy took a wad of paper from his briefcase as if waiting.
A white wad of paper fluttered over McCarthy’s hand. The cameramen fired flashes over and over again, and the reporters smoked cigarettes and wrote down every word McCarthy said without making a mistake.
It was truly a special one.
“Tell me! Who the hell is a communist? Reveal the spy’s identity!”
“it is impossible. If I make this list public, they will hide evidence and go undercover or engage in a full-fledged sabotage campaign.”
Once again the flash exploded. McCarthy smacked the podium with a wry smile.
“There are so many parasites lurking in the greatest nation in the world! They leaked state secrets, and they undermined our defenses, causing massive damage. They must be punished for their transference!”
“Then Senator McCarthy, how do you do that? .”
“I am here calling for the establishment of an ‘Anti-American Activity Monitoring Committee’ in the House of Representatives and a hearing by the legislature on it. As you know… .”
“As you know?”
“Because there are so many communist spies in the administration. We must not trust them! For whom have we shed so much blood in this war? Panama! Pearl Harbor! Remember!!”
Putting a strap around his neck, McCarthy began his Japanese speech. The reporters’ hands were quick again.
According to him, the surprise attack in Panama and Pearl Harbor was caused by the communists to sabotage the steadfast security posture of Americans. Hundreds of communists were directed by the Soviet Union, the Kremlin, and Stalin to bring the United States into war.
Only Stalin was laughing now, and a lot of the blood and sweat of Americans had been sent to the Soviet Union to fatten the evil communists.
“That… So, what will the war be like?”
“We must immediately stop all supplies of supplies going into the USSR! Let Germany, the Soviet Union, and two totalitarian countries kill each other peacefully. We must put an end to Japan and free Europe from both hands!”
Obviously not meant for our ally the Soviet Union, but some anti-communist anti-Soviet cheering.
Even in the ruling Democratic Party, there were people who were opposed to massive support for the Soviet Union, let alone the Republican Party?
Immediately, Democratic Senator Harry Truman made a brief comment, expressing his support for McCarthy’s remarks.
“Let me fight and die. two birds… No, both are our enemies.”
Of course, quite a few people dismissed McCarthy’s words as mere lies. In the first place, does it make sense that so many people are spies?
Somehow, it wasn’t a bad thing as a politician for a young congressman from rural Wisconsin to be known nationally.
His office was flooded with complaints, donations, and requests for interviews.

“Isn’t this bastard what we’re calling a redneck now! Damn it, ha!”
“… I’m sorry, Your Excellency.”
“No, George. You don’t have to be sorry. after… .”
Roosevelt rubbed the back of his neck, rubbing the back of his neck, blushing from the pain in the back of his neck. The other ministers also did not look comfortable.
Such were the case of Vice President Wallace, who was heavily accused of robbery because he “cooperated” directly with the Soviet Union, and Marshall, who “played with Molotov”.
“And Truman. I don’t even know how to pay attention to the tongue. What? Fight each other and let them die? If we had fought Germany directly, 4 million people would have been killed and injured. Shit!”
“Isn’t it enough to throw away some supplies, that little oil, and some technology to save millions of lives?”
“… That’s right, Your Excellency.”
The war between Germany and the Soviet Union was truly terrible and huge. Intelligence analysts at the Ministry of National Defense and State Department, who heard the statistics that the number of soldiers killed by the two countries alone exceeded 6 million and reached 7 million, trembled as if they were getting goosebumps.
So far, the total number of soldiers seriously wounded or killed in the war with Japan, the “Pacific War,” is still less than 500,000.
Could the Americans afford to suffer more than ten times that number? Perhaps even if the government was overthrown, it would have overturned several times.
I don’t know how to repay the Soviet Union for shed so much blood, but to hit the back of the head like this. It’s not something the administration did directly, but Stalin would never like it.
“I barely got a promise to participate in the Japanese War, but how things go so chaotic!”
“Sir, why don’t you have General Stalin reconfirmed your participation in the war?”
“Yeah, I guess so. Damn McCarthy. He seems to put us at a disadvantage in negotiations. by the way… .”
Roosevelt leaned back on the backrest for a moment, then leaned forward again and asked a question.
“Is that a grounded claim? Then the problem will be different… .”
“… We will investigate.”
The Attorney General nodded and walked out of the room. Roosevelt sighed and waved his hand.
“Everything is a mess. I mean, I really envy General Stalin at a time like this. If it were General Stalin… .”
Make your hands in the shape of a pistol and land! land! He acted as if he were shooting, then playfully blew his fingertips.
“Didn’t a guy like McCarthy do this? that, someone Trotsky… .”
“It is said that he killed him by smashing his head with an ice-breaking pickaxe.”
“okay! That’s just my heart.”
Roosevelt shouted, waving his long arms as if there was a lot of piled up. McCarthy smashed his head!
“And who is that bastard MacArthur, a Soviet general?”
“Are you talking about Marshal Zhukov?”
“No, no, that executed… .”
“You are talking about Tukhachevsky.”
Is it that person? Roosevelt tilted his head.
“Anyway, execution, that’s what matters. That traitor bastard would be executed if I had been commander in chief!”
“Sir, I know you have accumulated a lot, but… .”
“Yes, yes. I am the President of the United States of America, not the General Secretary of the Soviet Union. I know too. It’s just something I did out of frustration.”
They all nodded as if they knew what it meant. Who has never dreamed of a tyrannical ruler wielding iron power like Stalin?
His incredible successes, from mythical industrialization to war victories! While wasting time through checks and struggles in a democratic society, the Soviet Union kept ahead.
Even as an FDR who had a firm belief in democracy and faith in the present and future of the United States, when receiving such a nonsensical negative, he had no choice but to feel skeptical about the system.
And one of the worst.
“Stalin has Beria, so why are we like this?”
“Hmm… dismissal… .”
“Hoover, how long do I have to wait to see his arrogance? As you said, I know it’s better for him to pee inside the tent than outside the tent… To be honest, I doubt that he might have devised this.”
FBI Director John Edgar Hoover was one of the most famous anti-communists in American politics. After serving as director of the FBI for nearly two decades, starting in the 20s, he held American intelligence in one hand and solidified his position by exposing the weaknesses and privacy of politicians.
There were times when he was pointed out that he was eavesdropping everywhere as he searched for foreign spies, and he had his own people follow him.
The problem is that he took the weakness of the politician who raised the issue and drove him to the left to bury him.
Taking advantage of the huge expansion of the intelligence sector due to the war now, Hoover was working hard to satisfy his endless lust for power.
To find the link between McCarthy and Hoover, you need intelligence, but the problem is that it’s all in Hoover’s hands.
The NKVD director, who was absolutely loyal to Stalin, was envious of Beria.
“Anyway, let’s see if there’s any real basis for what McCarthy said. General Stalin must have already heard about this… .”
Roosevelt smiled sadly. Probably not 200 spies, but Stalin was surprisingly knowledgeable about America. Roosevelt was amazed at knowing Donald Duck and even Mickey Mouse.
“Yes! We will investigate thoroughly.”

“Berry! Run here right now! damn it! Shit!”
“Yes!? Yes! Comrade secretary! radish… What’s going on?”
“Look at this. ha… Do you see any serious problems with your espionage?”
Beria rushed to see if she felt my anger. Most of the time, I tend to treat Beria well so as not to be angry with her and not be wary of me, but this time there was a problem.
Seeing the documents I had thrown on the table, Beria widened her eyes and stuttered.
“Hey, this can’t be! Comrade secretary! Absolutely not! Trust me!”
“Yeah, of course not. ha… .”
The content of the document was nothing special, but it could end the relationship between the smiles.
“Have you been caught half way?! It’s our spy network and it could end our diplomatic relations!”
