Almost anybody can be known as a communist to the JBS. The Council of Foreign Relations and anybody who is a member, including those who may be speaking at the C-PAC; The Trilateral Commission; The U.N., Dwight D. Eisenhower back in the day; John Wayne also back in the day; any civil leader such as Martin Luther King, Jr.; former South African President Nelson Mandela; our American President Barack Obama; Al Gore; John Le Carre; Thomas Friedman; etc. Rachel Maddow made some good points the other night, explaining that back in the 1960s, JBS leaders believed that the civil rights movement wanted to establish a so-called "Negro Soviet Republic" in the southern part of the U.S. Where did they come up with that? The civil rights movement struggled for the rights of African-Americans to live freely in an integrated, mainstream society. It was the Nation of Islam who wanted a separate nation for blacks, but not one that is Marxist or Stalinist if that is what they are getting at. Having the JBS as a sponsor of C-PAC will undermine C-PAC. Today, the JBS does not go after the civil rights movement. Their beef is with the United Nations. They believe that the U.S. should throw in the towel when it comes to its membership within the organization. The U.S. should "get out of the U.N." and that "the U.N. should get out of the U.S." And unfortunately, there are many people who agree with this idea. The JBS sees the U.N. as an agency with an agenda to do away with sovereign nations and its boundaries, making the whole world into one big group of world Soviet, socialist republics. They call Nelson Mandela a communist because of his membership with the African National Congress (ANC) in South Africa. Hence, the ANC is a communist organization that has communicated with Joe Slovo, who actually was a member of the South African Communist Party (SACP). Just because Joe was must mean that Nelson is, too. And as we look at South Africa today, we find that it is still a democratic country with an integrated society. Universal health care is now offered there, unlike, here in the U.S.
So, it will be interesting how the C-PAC conference in 2010 will play out this year with all of these Birchers there, such as John McManus and William Jasper. It may give C-SPAN big ratings. Many Democrats may be watching it for entertainment purposes. This may be the GOP's Waterloo!
