“Call out the instigator
Because there’s something in the air
We’ve got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution’s here…”
~ Something in the Air– Thunderclap Newman
(Please, listen and watch video, before reading.)
The first time this hustle worked on American society was during the Vietnam War. Let’s focus on how the same tactics used are now being used, ironically, by some of the same people.
“Notwithstanding, newly-elected president Biden characteristically does not appear to be haunted by any of his past actions; rather he is often boastful about policies that caused great misery. In this exclusive series of articles reviewing Biden’s positions on U.S. foreign policy, Kuzmarov focuses on some of the skeletons in Biden’s political closet.” ~By Jeremy Kuzmarov– Exclusive Series: Biden’s Foreign Policy History and What it Portends for his Presidency – CovertAction Magazine
Culture shock is defined as becoming disoriented and struggling to cope with unfamiliar and/or unforeseen surroundings within a social setting, such as an adventurous or patriotic young man, sent to a foreign country and, upon arrival, thrust into fighting a war—boots hitting the ground—but finding both the culture and the war a shock to their virgin-core. Or, a nation believing their own government would never declare a political war on them in a power-grab.
Fighting what would later prove to be a war of pride and politics, there were many who were stateside, attending college or dodging the draft or, like Senator Richard Blumenthal, claiming to be “in country” but were never “out of country”. Young men the same ages, living to just to fight and fighting just to live, starkly different realities imposed on them by the very people they were expected to trust had their best interests in mind.
And, while they were in Vietnam fighting to defeat the threat of Communism, there were Communist operatives in America laying its eggs inside of the impressionable minds and burrowing deep inside of our institutions–the anti-American Communist-movement disguised as an anti-war/race-war movement.
~M. Jane Letty
The generals were expected to give orders that would successfully complete missions with the lives of young men lost kept to a minimum, but they didn’t. Men like Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, a businessman who admitted to President John F. Kennedy that he knew nothing about government, who instituted the disastrous Project 100,000 that was (a)nother “Great Society” front to give the African-American population false hope of a more favorable future in exchange for combat service. Of the 40% of the black combat veterans that served in Vietnam, more than half returned disabled or were killed in action rendering them unable to take advantage of the opportunities promised the politicians intentionally never intended. It did, however, cause racial tensions among ranks because many of the lower ranks were black and many of them were unable to avoid the draft unlike their white counterparts. To the credit of both the human and the American spirit, the majority of soldiers became brothers-in-arms and continue to be brothers to this day. Likely to the disappointment of those hoping to instigate a race war—here and abroad—because, unbeknownst to them, that was the war the politicians would need for them to fight when they got home.
The sheep-dipped, diabolically bloated ego of General W.C. Westmoreland who was able to garner both admiration and sympathy by some in the military and media for his actions, but ultimately it was both his and McNamara’s arrogance and ego, combined with McNamara’s ignorance—or, compliance—of how government worked that paired well with the military complex absolving their failing role in dooming every combat veteran.
While this is not all that could be said on the failure of the Vietnam War at the direction of those who were not up to their asses and elbows in the rice paddies, deep in the jungle, doing time in the barrel, humping the Bush, getting dusted with Agent Orange, it says what the media didn’t want the public to know. (The link of Agent Orange gives a great insight into how capable our government is at doing terrible things, whether it’s clearing brush or populations that do not vote the way they need in order to remain in power.) Using a crisis to drive a narrative, push an agenda, because their political lives depended on it is a staple of Washington, D.C. Some of them didn’t know what they were doing. More of them, did. Then and now, there is no distinction. But not in the sense of competence. Rather, those who haven’t gone to their graves with blood on their hands, have dipped them for a second time, as aging relics when they made the conscious decision to recreate a spitting images of the anti-war and racial tensions of the 60s and 70s, with the help of Hollywood, media/operatives, and the real dregs of society, whose only reason for living is to collect ants for the jars for shocking. It’s tactical in their determination of finishing what they started—destroy America.
The professors, were expected to teach lessons that would enrich the lives of young minds in the hope of educating them. But, they instead radicalized many who in turn—willingly or by indoctrination—became professors, bureaucrats, and activists/operatives. Two of them even became President: William Jefferson Clinton and Barak Hussein Obama, with one wannabe President—Hillary Rodham Clinton.
But, another type of hustler was also born during that time that capitalized on the vulnerability of the generation. One of the worst hustlers was the media, then known as the press, which fed the other hustlers; the politicians, the generals, the professors and the grifters, like “community organizers”, (radicals) such as Saul Alinsky elevated to “Prophet of Power to the People” by Time Magazine in 1970, and ne’er-do-well/do former Senator turned VP Joe Biden, that occupied the spaces in between those static players.
If you really want to know the excuse Joe Biden offered as to why he didn’t serve, just listen here.
“Biden admitted that, “by the time the [1960s] movement was at its peak, I was married, I was in law school, I wore sports coats. You’re looking at a middle-class guy…. I’m not big on flak jackets and tie-dyed shirts.”” ~ Exclusive Series: Biden’s Foreign Policy History and What it Portends for his Presidency By Jeremy Kuzmarov
Of course, once the war was well in his rearview mirror and he was in a position to use it to push back on reporters questioning his cowardice, in his own words he states it was because he didn’t fit in with flak jacket types and that he wore sport jackets while attending law school at Syracuse University and that, at 23, he was married. It had nothing to do with asthma or being a football player. There were countless young men who were married or were football players in college. It had to do with the same reason real men went to war and some little piggies stayed home: Courage and patriotism vs. spinelessness and arrogance. Here’s the link, again, of Biden’s jackassery: who he is, then and now.
All gave some; some gave all. Some, like Joe Biden, gave nothing at all.
Here’s a few images of what honorable men, (many of them also middle-class, in college, or married) in flak-jackets doing “light years” so the likes of Blumenthal and Biden could be state-side, safe and smug in country…clubs:
The instigators, (politicians, military, communist/Leftist operatives) sent the press to Vietnam under the guise of featuring the American service members to a curious American audience. They instead, highlighted the ravages of war, which was itself a form of culture shock for the viewers. It’s still unclear what they were expecting. Just as today’s media does America no favors, the press of yesterday did no favors to the men who were fighting, and it resulted in their peers turning on them when they returned—on demand. The politicians and professors made sure to deflect their responsibility for it onto a scapegoat. They knew if that generation discovered who was responsible for calling the shots in Vietnam or fomenting racial tensions, that they were the ‘baby killers’ they still are, and they had inherited the eggs of Communism to nurture, etc., the American people would turn on them. We turned on them when we elected Presidents Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump. The former came close to exposing their nest, while the latter actually did.
That’s what all of this insanity is about. Know that.
They encouraged such hatred toward those returning from combat, to deflect from why they would need protection for their own deeds, but also to protect what can only best be described as an inherited agenda. And, if the Vietnam war was intended to fight the very thing they were covertly imbedding into our own country, it explains their obvious terror of being exposed and stands to reason why today’s political agenda is to preserve it at all costs. Including drag down our recovery from the near-ruin of the Obama presidency at every turn; infecting us with a virus, with its the lopsided tyranny; incite riots to weaken our police protection from criminals—and them; the strange level of cognitive dissonance emanating from nearly every sector of society, killing off their burdens, destroying childhoods, flooding our nation with illegal aliens, checklist violations of our US Constitutions–specifically First, Second, and Fourth Amendments, etc. Is it any wonder they were excessively crushed when they lost 2016, chewed through every American tradition and trashed every American value since, divided a nation, had no alternative but to steal an election, barricade themselves from us, and is attempting with all their might to force us into Communism?
“During the late 1940s and early 1950s, the prospect of communist subversion at home and abroad seemed frighteningly real to many people in the United States. These fears came to define–and, in some cases, corrode–the era’s political culture. For many Americans, the most enduring symbol of this “Red Scare” was Republican Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin. Senator McCarthy spent almost five years trying in vain to expose communists and other left-wing “loyalty risks” in the U.S. government. In the hyper-suspicious atmosphere of the Cold War, insinuations of disloyalty were enough to convince many Americans that their government was packed with traitors and spies.” ~The History Channel
Those eggs the late Senator Joe McCarthy attempted to expose and warn us about have flourished and hatched—all at once. Unbelievably, too many think the Vietnam War was only a few years long, starting in the late-60s and over by the early-70s. They think this because that’s what the media calls attention to and there are operatives to make sure it stays that way. A narrative made easier by lazy or arrogant educators and BigTech.
“The Vietnam War (1955-1975) was fought between communist North Vietnam, backed by the Soviet Union and China, and South Vietnam, supported by the United States. The bloody conflict had its roots in French colonial rule and an independence movement driven by communist leader Ho Chi Minh. ~What Led to the Start of the Vietnam War? – HISTORY
And, many of them don’t know it was Marxism our American soldiers went there to fight back.
“Communism in Vietnam is linked to the Politics of Vietnam and the push for independence. Marxism was introduced in Vietnam with the emergence of three communist parties; the Indochinese Communist Party, the Annamese Communist Party and the Indochinese Communist Union, later joined by a Trotskyist movement led by Tạ Thu Thâu. In 1930 the Communist International sent Nguyễn Ái Quốc to Hong Kong to coordinate the unification of the parties into the Vietnamese Communist Party with Trần Phú as its first Secretary General. ~ Wikipedia
Because we have got to get it together and call out the instigators or we’re going to fall to Communism. None of the ally countries we’ve fought and died for and continue to pay to protect are coming to our defense the way we did for them for two reasons: We are still the might and out of spite. Many of our so-called allies may be convinced they’re not Communist countries, but they are by virtue of malice—the very essence of Communism.
In closing, I’ll leave you with this quote…and a plea. Because, when I think about what our Vietnam Vets must make of all that’s going on, I imagine them as 20-something men who were exactly where we are, now—in the throes of a political war. I can almost hear them silently hoping we don’t let them down by handing over their full-metal jackets for a full-Marxist jacket to a puppet in a stolen sport coat.
“We will not bend. We will not break. We will not yield. We will never give in, we will never give up and we will never back down. We will never ever surrender.” ~ President Donald J. Trump
