The Soviets picked every scab in America & made our country polarize, burn, & bleed as part of their fifth column strategy to win the Vietnam War.
What the Soviets did to America during the Vietnam era was reminiscent of what the Germans did during WW1 when they sneaked Lenin into Russia to foment chaos & discord in that country. And everyone recognizes how successful that strategy was. After Lenin incited chaos, discord, & civil disobedience in Russia, Russia ended hostilities against Germany & surrendered some of its territories.
And guess what? The Soviet strategy of fomenting chaos, discord, & civil disobedience in America during the Vietnam War era worked, as well!
Flower children (useful idiots) bought into the Soviet stratagems hook, line, & sinker, even crediting themselves for the carefully orchestrated, Soviet planned chaos (calling it the "counterculture revolution").
As the flower children & other useful idiots were causing America to burn & bleed, they were singing John Lennon's song, "Give Peace a Chance." Little did they understand that were being played & helping the Communists to conquer & subjugate America's ally that it had promised to defend against such aggression.
When terrorists exploded a nail bomb in Park Station in SF during shift change (Feb. 1970) & when Jonathan Jackson launched a murderous assault on the Marin County Court House (August 1970), Bill Ayers & Bernadine Dohrn were living on a houseboat in Sausalito just 8 miles from Park Station & 12 miles from the Court House.
Ever wonder who struck the match in all those riots in black communities? Notice how close in time to each other they occurred. Mere coincidence?
And at the same time the Black Panthers came into being, fomenting discord & unrest every place it took root. Those same organized, financed, coordinated, & inflamed feelings led to the Soledad Brothers & the Jonathan Jackson's Marin Courthouse massacre.
A lot of black brothers got used & abused in the process. Many of them ended up dead or sentenced to long prison terms. Prominent cities & black neighbors got destroyed, & many of them never got rebuilt and/or restored to what they previously were.
Some of the women that got recruited into the Panther movement did some good. But the KGB likely let the black women do their thing, while it exploited their men.
Shouldn't someone try to trace the Soviet money into the hands of their American collaborators & useful idiots? Some of it may have found its way to Capitol Hill.
Members of the Weather Underground got played big time, & they got a lot of people killed, maimed, and/or locked up in prison. Nice legacy for so-called intellectuals that became useful idiots for the Soviet cause!
Notice the Herbert Marcuse connection in both of the hyperlinks above.
In my mind, I can envision KGB agents talking to their Frankfurt School contacts at the Universities: "Give us the names of the most impressionable students with the weakest critical thinking skills on campus." And history provides us with the names of the persons those contacts pointed to. The members of the Weather Underground were prominent among them.
