A former KGB agent, Bezmenov had some not-so-nice things to say about the horrors of communism. He also warned that communism would eventually creep its way into the United States if Americans failed to spot it and deal with it.
This interview with Bezmenov took place back in the 1980s, by the way – and just as he warned it would, we're now seeing communism go mainstream. And ironically enough, one prominent example of its tactics of subversion is the escalating assault on free speech by YouTube and other Big Tech companies.
If Bezmenov were around today – he died back in 1993 – he'd likely be horrified at how quickly communism has basically become the official platform of today's Democrat Party. He'd also probably be shouting from the rooftops that if Americans don't reign in Big Tech and put an end to all of its censorship, then they might as well kiss the First Amendment goodbye.
We've reported on this Bezmenov interview before because it really is a type of modern-day prophecy regarding the potential future of our country. It wakes people up to the threat of communism and why it must be defeated – information that the fascists over at YouTube apparently don't want people to hear.
Fortunately, we were able to get a hold of this Bezmenov interview footage before YouTube scrubbed it from the internet, and it's now available for public viewing at Brighteon.com, the free speech alternative to YouTube.

As we're now seeing all across the tech spectrum, the information gatekeepers are desperate to control the narrative, just like communists have always done throughout history. But they can't do this with a free and open internet, which is why they've infiltrated tech corporations like YouTube in order to control the content that's published there.
They say it's to fight "hate speech," of course, but we know that there's actually no such thing.
"Hate speech" is little more than a code phrase used to disguise the online censorship agenda of Silicon Valley, which right this moment is constructing a new internet 2.0 that, just like what currently exists in communist China, is 100 percent censored and controlled by a select few at the top of the totem pole.
We continue to warn our readers, regardless of where they fall on the political spectrum, that censorship is never a good thing, regardless of who's being censored. Even if you don't like what someone else has to say, telling him that he can't say it crosses a hard line that our founders put in place for a reason – because eventually that censorship will apply to everyone.
One of the key tenets of nearly every communist takeover throughout history involved stripping the citizenry of their free speech rights. Budding dictators also used many of the same excuses as today's tech giants in order to do it, such as claiming that they were fighting "hate" from society's "troublemakers."
It's the type of thing that Bezmenov fled when he defected from the KGB and set out to warn others about what he witnessed while a member of the former Soviet Union's "deep state." But people didn't listen to him, or at least not enough of them, because look where we are today.
If YouTube really stood for freedom and liberty, it would be promoting videos like the Bezmenov interview, not suppressing and deleting them. And to the leftists who think they're immune to this Big Tech censorship, be warned: your content is next.
