NATO did not help the Hungarian people because the “West” or the “democracies” don’t care about the people, or democracy, or human rights, they care about having a docile, controlled population and if they can’t supply that control themselves, then the communists can do the job.

The ironically named Hungarian Working People’s Party was not installed by workers, but rather by the conquering Red Army in September 1944. The Communist regime for years was guilty of all sorts of atrocities and persecutions, eventually stirring deep discontent which blossomed into armed resistance. In October 1956, national revolution took Hungary by storm. Unlike the Hungarian communist oligarchs, a grassroots effort by Workers’ Councils and patriotic youth began to take over streets and squares in defiance of Bolshevism. The similarity to which this anti-Communist uprising of workers, students, and peasents had to Soviet propaganda portrayals of Communist revolutions was uncanny. It is noteworthy to point out that the most revolutionary of the anti-Communists were workers organizing in the factories. Despite knowing the consequences and certain retaliation of the Soviet empire, the patriotic workers and youths fought enthusiastically and courageously in self-started councils. The youth of the freedom fighters was what surprised many, the uprising of the young people was not limited to violently crushed demonstrations, in the next phase they began to neutralize police forces and even Russian tanks with their make shift weapons. The Stalinist Left at the time of the ’56 revolution attempted to do damage control by claiming the Hungarian rebels were a conspiracy of the Western capitalists, but in reality it was a war against red totalitarianism and ethnic/cultural persecution of native Hungarians and their culture. When American President Dwight D. Eisenhower made it clear he had no interest in supporting the Hungarian rebels, Soviet Premier Nikita Kruschev saw it as a green light to invade Hungary.
In the context of the Cold War, many in Conservative circles have misinterpreted the actions of 1956 Hungary for their own benefit. However, the reality is that the Hungarian patriots were not affiliated what so ever with NATO or the West, which is precisely why these forces did not aid them. American sociologist Jay Schulman interviewed countless Hungarian emigres who had witnessed the incident, and he found that almost 100% of the Hungarian people at the time perceived the Hungarian Communist leadership as being a Jewish dictatorship. Indeed, the “Jewish Quartet” of Hungary’s most powerful and brutal Communist butchers such as General Secretary Matyas Rakosi (birth name: “Roth”), Ernest Gero (birth name: “Singer”), defense minister Michael Farkas (birth name “Wolf”), and propaganda minister Joseph Revai were of Jewish ancestry. The Hungarian secret police, the AVH, known for its excessive acts of torture and inhumanity even by Eastern Bloc standards, was headed by a Jew named Gabor Peter (birth name: “Benjamin Auschpitz”). The fact that Hungary’s most powerful oligarchs were Jewish created discontent among Hungarians, who sought ethnic representation in their own government.
