Bipartisan ‘Victims of Communism’ caucus forms in the U.S. congress

A group of bipartisan lawmakers in congress have come together to form the “Victims of Communism Caucus.” Its founders vow not only to keep the memory of communism’s 100-million plus victims alive, but to also continue warning the U.S. and the world of this vile and deadly ideology’s continued threat to humanity.

Bipartisan group of lawmakers create ‘Victims of Communism Caucus’

A group of Republicans announced on a new caucus on Tuesday which is dedicated to raising awareness for those affected by communism.“We should not be lulled into thinking that communism is no longer a threat to freedom in the world, given that many people still toil under its hateful, totalitarian rule,” Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Fla., said in a press release. “Our caucus will ensure that we do not forget those victims who were forced to choose between their faith and the cruelty of a dictatorship. We must hold fast to the virtues of freedom.”

Reps. Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio, Dan Lipinski, D-Ill., and Chris Smith, R-N.J., formed the bipartisan group alongside Ross and are dedicated to raising awareness to how more than 100 million people have been “victimized” by communism and how it still exists in China, Cuba, Laos, North Korea, and Vietnam.

“Our bipartisan caucus is determined to ensure that Congress and the American people remain aware of and continue to fight against the deadly and ongoing evil of Marxist and Leninist ideology — still promoted by communist dictators,” Smith said.

The formation of the caucus comes on the week of the 100th anniversary of Bolshevik Revolution, which contributed to the rise of the Soviet Union.
