Indeed, the index of Soviet success is that most of us no longer think of these memes as Communist propaganda. It takes a significant amount of digging and rethinking and remembering, even for a lifelong anti-Communist like myself, to realize that there was a time (within the lifetime of my parents) when all of these ideas would have seemed alien, absurd, and repulsive to most people — at best, the beliefs of a nutty left-wing fringe, and at worst instruments of deliberate subversion intended to destroy the American way of life.

Oh, and on the subject of the Kashoggi kerfuffle - the dude was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and Osama bin Ladin's pal. If the Saudis didn't get to him, someone would have. He was a member and an apologist for an Islamic terror front group that has killed thousands if not millions of people across the Middle East for not being Islamic enough. He was going to die a brutal, violent death at some point, because he advocates for other people's brutal, violent deaths at the hands of Islamic barbarians. So the House of Saud took him out. Boo-freaking-hoo. No tears over here. Not one. He got what he deserved, and he got it far later than he deserved it.
