It was easier for Obama to run his campaign out of Chicago, where none of Hawaii’s communist past could haunt his campaign.
Hawaii may have been a US territory, but Moscow controlled the labor. When Hitler invaded the Soviet Union, Moscow placed a call to their Hawaiian operatives and told them to knock it until after the war.
We have Jack Kawano to thank for that piece of information. Jack Kawano was a member of the Longshoremen’s Union and joined the Communist Party of Hawaii in 1930. He helped organize the sugar plantation workers and rose up through the ranks to become President of the Longshoremen’s Union, Local 136.
Communist organizers from the mainland recognized his leadership abilities and invited him to join the “Traveler’s Club”, the communist underground.
It all came to an abrupt end when communist insurgents staged a revolution in 1949, holding the Hawaiian Islands in a state of siege for 177 days.
Kawano was so shaken by the violence that he offered to tell his story to the House Un-American Activities Committee.
He repeated his testimony in an interview with Richard English for the “Saturday Evening Post”, dated Feb. 2, 1952 in an titled “We Almost Lost Hawaii To The Reds.” If you can find a copy, it’s worth the read.
Kawano’s testimony shattered the Communist Party. He described his meetings with his communist advisors as “professional guys and teachers from the University of Hawaii”. They explained the theory of communism, by breaking a twig. Then they tied a dozen twigs together and explained that if the twigs work together, it’s impossible to break.
It’s a weak argument. All the twigs eventually go down in flames. In communism, the little guy does all the dirty work.
The bombshell came when Kawano revealed a plan to take over the leadership of the Democratic Party, which they called “unorganized and weak.” They planned to take over the Republican Party later on. Seems a little prophetic, doesn’t it?
Jack Kawano was one of forty-one communist delegates who attended the territorial convention of the Democratic Party in Hawaii.
Kawano described his trip to San Francisco for special indoctrination at party headquarters.
Kawano listened to lectures on communism for six weeks, describing the school as “mostly students from California, and one Mexican.”
He attended classes in Marxism, propaganda, and training in how to agitate the police. And finally, he was forced to listen to the complete history of the American labor movement and the Communist Party.
I’m surprised they didn’t die of boredom. I guess we should remember that the lectures were probably written by some intellectual genius from Berkeley.
And who needs training on how to agitate the police? I’ll just remind everyone that the students at UC Davis were pepper-sprayed in the face, and then they filed complaints against the university police. Still up to the same old tricks.
This gives us a much different picture of Barack Obama and makes the leadership of the Democratic Party look ridiculous.
I guess we can stop wondering why we only have two political parties. They couldn’t control more than two parties.
More than likely, this is the reason Joe Biden and his “fellow travelers” want Americans to turn in their guns. Gun control is the path of least resistance.
If organized labor is a weapon, that explains the flood of immigrant labor and Janet Napolitano’s feigned ignorance of anything suspicious.
I’m the same age as Bill and Hillary Clinton. My husband was a graduate student in the Russian Department at the University of California Davis, when Bill Clinton was running around Moscow. I know that any travel involving the Soviet Union required the cooperation of the KGB.
Add Hillary’s legal career getting a jumpstart from a couple of communist attorneys in Berkeley; I’m going to call that a yes.
I met my first Soviet Agent in 1970. He was following my husband. I stood there with a stupid look on my face while my husband chatted with the KGB. When I expressed my concern, he told me to mind my own business.
That marriage ended when the KGB arranged a job for him in Washington DC. He left me standing around Davis and took off. Never saw him again.
So don’t tell me that the University of Hawaii never had any communist organizers. I know all about how communists organize inside the Russian Departments.
I judge people by what they do, not what they say. All I’m hearing is the same old communist double-talk from years ago.
