Jane Fonda Anti-War Demonstrator and Communism in the United States
Here is a revamp of the e-mails that I sent back to Przemek:
I will try to clarify my staunch feelings about
Jane Fonda and the anti-war demonstrators during the Viet Nam War.
In chapter 1, page 1, ("Opportunity to Serve") you will find the Wars of National Liberation being mentioned.
The following are more detailed links about Wars of National Liberation:
In Viet Nam we were successful in defeating the enemy (NVA and VC) in all major battles but lost the war back home from the media's sensationalist method of reporting and the actions of anti-war protestors on our college campuses and streets.
Our Country was in turmoil from many radical groups who received money and support from communist sympathizers. This was all part of Russia's War of National Liberation plan for the United States. Racial riots and anti-war protectors were causing major problems in the United States with extremist groups such as the Black Panther Party, Weathermen, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW). The following are some links for you to read about these groups:
These organizations had ties to communist organizations and some members met with officials from communist countries. Today, some of the leadership and members of these same organizations are now political leaders in Local, State and Federal Governments in our Country.
Jane Fonda had a major role in bringing a feeling of discontent with the Viet Nam War to the American public. Jane Fonda was from a prominent acting family and as a rising starlet, who already had the media's attention, made it easier for her to put forth her socialist and anti-war agendas. Remember, On November 21, 1970 she told a University of Michigan audience of some two thousand students, "If you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would some day become communist." At Duke University in North Carolina she repeated what she had said in Michigan, adding "I, a socialist, think that we should strive toward a socialist society, all the way to communism. " Washington Times July 7, 2000 .
Links to other articles I have written on Jane Fonda are listed below:
In the 1950's the F.B.I. conducted investigations about the communist activities and goals within the United States. Former FBI agent, Cleon Skoussen, wrote a book called "The Naked Communist", which was published in 1958, outlining the long term goals of the communist in the United States. The 45 goals were read into the Congressional Record in August 1963. I am listing a few of the goals that I have found interesting:
The following is a link to the Communist Goals from which I had taken an excerpt, if you would like to read the entire article:
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), in my opinion, has become the right arm of communism in the United States in helping communist achieve their goals.
The ACLU founder, Roger Nash Baldwin, made the following quote as the director of the ACLU:
Democratic President, Jimmy Carter on January 16, 1981 gave the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Roger Nash Baldwin. The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the nation's highest civilian award given to recognize exceptional meritorious service.
You may wish to review the below listed web sites for additional information on Roger Baldwin:
The battle for Communist World Domination is still going on today. Even after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the break up of the Soviet Union.
Instead of using force, a more intellectual approach is being taken in the United States and other countries. In the 60's, the Communist would call themselves Socialist so as not to be labeled as a Communist. Today, these socialist supporters go by many names, a few will refer themselves as the "Left Wing", "Old Left" and the "New Left". Their goals are the same, to bring down our Democracy and the Government for Socialism and a Communist style of government.
As you can see some of the "Communist Goals" have been met and the communists continue to work on the other goals.
I fought in the Viet Nam War as a young man (19-20 years old) in an attempt to stop the spread of Communism, while at the same time the Communists were back home fighting to achieve their goals by infiltrating and leading student anti-war demonstrations to help their comrades in North Vietnam. The Communists in the United States were successful in making the citizens and the politicians lose their will to continue on with the war. The United States eventually withdrew our troops from South Vietnam. This was a huge victory, not only for North Vietnam, but for Communism worldwide, for it was a collective effort made by all Communists in bringing this victory over the United States. Communists in the United States were able to take control of the student unions and newspapers at major universities. Communist philosophy was being heard by all students. Those students who were not indoctrinated by this propaganda become numb and naive to the seriousness of what was happening around them.
As I look around today, I can see communism is still alive and well with a very strong grip on our society. I feel the Communists have achieved some of their goals and are still working on their other goals.
I am trying to help people to become more aware as to what is happening in our Country. As for Jane Fonda, I despised her actions during the war and despise her new antics today. In my opinion, she is as much a traitor today as she was during the Viet Nam War. I guess you have heard the old saying "Once a Commie, always a Commie." That is how I feel about Jane Fonda.
