TROTSKY’S LIES (Part 1)

Introduction:

Leon Trotsky was a notorious liar and a revisionist counter-revolutionary. This is demonstrated by his bankrupt anti-Marxist theory of Permanent Revolution, by his actions, his opinions and countless demonstrable lies. Here are some of them:

Trotsky on Max Eastman:

In 1925 Trotsky criticized the notorious ultra-left liar Max Eastman. Ironically three years later he became best friends with Eastman and started spreading the same exact lies that he had debunked himself. After his exile from the USSR Trotsky lost contact with Soviet workers and began targeting Westerners who didn’t necessarily know about the reality of Soviet situation. This is the reason for this blatant seemingly ridiculous 180* flip-flop.

 

Eastman’s assertion that the Central Committee was anxious to conceal (that is, not to publish) Comrade Lenin’s article on the Workers and Peasants Inspection is equally untrue.”

Eastman’s quotation from the wording of the “Testament” is equally wrong… This was published by counter revolutionists.

Eastman’s assertions that the Central Committee confiscated my pamphlet… are untrue, and are based on fantastic rumors.”

Eastman is again wrong in asserting that Comrade Lenin offered me the post of chairman of the Council of People’s Commissars, and of the Council of Labor and Defense”

“An attentive perusal of Eastman’s book would doubtless give me the opportunity of pointing out a number of other inaccuracies, errors, and misrepresentations. I do not, however, think that it would be of interest to go further.”
Leon Trotsky, “Letter on Eastman’s Book”, 1925

 

Trotsky was singing to quite a different tune three years later:

 

“Comrade Max Eastman… is a devoted friend of the October revolution… an absolutely irreproachable revolutionist”
Leon Trotsky, “On Max Eastman”, September 1928
