Антикоммунизм в США: идеология правого экстремизма

I’m reading from a 1968 journal from the USSR. The author, Lev Nikolaevich Mitrokhin, is describing the race riots of the late 1960s and the various anti-Communist groups (mostly Christian, right-wing, even neo-Nazi). He mentions the death of Martin Luther King, Jr., it’s even a kind of invocation.

I’m reminded of the Nobel speech of Harold Pinter, in which he stated that, although the crimes of the USSR have been quite well-discussed by now, those of the USA are not. Pinter was no friend of the USSR. He supported refugees to the UK. Anyways, I thought of how all those events must have looked “from the other side,” so to speak.
