Two Legendary Pictures
« on: February 12, 2015, 10:54:58 PM »
There are things that you've know for so long that you forget that you knew them.

Just got an email from a cousin with a better memory than mine. Attached to that email, two pictures that I'd like to share with you.

Let me give you some background, and warn you that these pictures tend to disappear from the Internet nearly as fast as they are posted. Forgive me for using Wikipedia, it is only out of expediency that I do:

Quote
The Venceremos Brigade is a politically motivated international organization founded in 1969 by members of the Students for a Democratic Society and officials of the Republic of Cuba.[1] Carl Oglesby, Bernardine Dohrn, Julie Nichamin, Brian Murphy, Allen Young and other members of SDS were primarily responsible for the idea, organization and negotiations with Carlos Rafael Rodríguez[2] and other members of the Cuban government. The first trip in November 1969 numbered 216[3] and left from Czechoslovakia to skirt the U.S. government's restrictions on travel to the island.[2] It was formed as a coalition of young people attempting to show solidarity with the Cuban Revolution by working side by side with Cuban workers, challenging U.S. policies towards Cuba, including the United States embargo against Cuba. The yearly brigade trips, which as of 2010 have brought more than 9,000 people to Cuba, continue today and are coordinated with the Pastors For Peace Friendship Caravans to Cuba.[4]

The first Brigades participated in sugar harvests and subsequent Brigades have done agricultural and construction work in many parts of the island, although the "work" portion of their trips has become largely symbolic.[5]

According to debriefing statements made to the FBI by a Cuban Intelligence officer who defected in 1983, the Veceremos Brigade was controlled by Cuban Intelligence officer Alfredo Garcia Almeida, chief of the North American Section of the Americas Department and former political counselor at the Cuban Mission to the United Nations in New York City.[6]

Despite this accusation, the organization as a whole has experienced little censure from U.S. authorities. But the FBI has questioned individual travellers over the years. In 2010, at least 12 brigade participants were visited by FBI agents, but were left in peace when they declined to be interviewed.[7]

A contingent of Latinos led by the Young Lords' Field Marshals David Rivera and Raul Lugo traveled from the Young Lords People's Church in Chicago in 1969.


Here's the money quote:

The first trip in November 1969 numbered 216[3] and left from Czechoslovakia to skirt the U.S. government's restrictions on travel to the island.[2] It was formed as a coalition of young people attempting to show solidarity with the Cuban Revolution by working side by side with Cuban workers, challenging U.S. policies towards Cuba, including the United States embargo against Cuba.

Here are two pictures from that trip:



The top picture shows a young American member of the Venceremos Brigade cutting sugar cane in Cuba. The second shows the same young American woman plowing Cuban fields in 1969.

The young woman in both pictures is Wellesley graduate and newly registered Democrat (was a registered Republican until 1968) Hillary Rodham.

If you are going to be kept alive in institutions run by and paid for by the State, you must accept the State’s right to economize when necessary …” The Ministry of Fear by Graham Green (New York: Penguin Books [1943] 2005, p. 165).

Incredible. Thanks for such a stunning post.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Maybe it's just me but neither of those pictures bears any resemblance to other pics I've seen of her in her early days with Bill.

It's not Hillary.

She was far uglier than that woman.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

 The woman in the first picture is not Hillary Clinton. Her name is Celia Sanchez Manduley. Every Cuban or anyone who has studied Cuban history knows that. The woman in the second picture is not Hillary either...  :nono:  888high58888

Sure seems like you are correct. @June Truth and welcome to TBR. Glad to have ya.

Christians who have abandoned the culture wars need to stare this generation in the eyes and tell them: "You aren't worth saving".

Hill-O-Lies' bona fides as a Communist are abundantly validated by her own admission, in letters she wrote to her hero SAUL ALINSKY, for whom she wanted to work when she left college. Alinsky's stated goal (articulated in Rules for Radicals) was to overthrow the United States government BY ANY AND ALL MEANS NECESSARY - a goal which Hill-O-Lies shared.

Alinsky fully admitted that he saw nothing whatsoever morally wrong with violent revolution (as in the formation of the Soviet Union) except that like Trotskii, he believed that blunt force physical combat/slaughter would not be as EFFECTIVE as the more-subtle approach.

She stated that she chose not to go to work with Alinsky because she wanted to go into government service and feared that association with his organization would be a negative (a radical Marxist revolutionary socialist). In her letters to Alinsky she seemed bitterly disappointed and apologized profusely, swearing that she "shared all of the goals to which Marxist Revolution aspires" but that she had decided to approach revolution from a different direction.

Yep. She did that alright. Deceit, sedition, subversion, deception, sabotage. Those are more her style.
