Documents released by the FBI Records Vault have revealed a troubling connection between figures associated with Chinese communist affiliated protest groups in the 1960’s and 70’s and Bay Area politicians. The FBI identified a number of individuals who were working with groups that were militant and Chinese-oriented in nature. Today, these individuals are involved with organizations who financially and politically support figures tied to protest groups operating in San Francisco, including the far left movement By Any Means Necessary (BAMN). The parties involved in support for these protest groups are also tied to institutions connected to billionaire George Soros.
I. Wellstone Action’s Ties To Advocacy Groups
The progressive advocacy organization Wellstone Action was founded by Jeff Blodgett to train community organizers, student activists, campaign staff, progressive candidates and elected officials. Based in Minnesota, it also runs the Wellstone Democratic Renewal Club in Berkeley, California. The club is an attempt to foster a “grassroots movement for progressive change” which participates anti-Trump protests in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as promotes the notion that the Russian government interferes in U.S. elections. Partners of Wellstone Action include the Bush Foundation, The Ballot Initiative Strategy Center, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the George Soros funded organization Moveon.org.
The Wellstone Democratic Renewal Club and Wellstone Action are also affiliated with a PAC bearing the Club’s name. The Center for Responsive Politics lists the PAC’s treasurer as Floyd Huen. Huen is the husband of Oakland mayor Jean Quan. A page showing the PAC’s 2016 donations reveals that donors included The Wellstone Club, Floyd Huen and Wilma Chan, a California Assemblywoman who served as California State Assembly Majority Leader from 2002 to 2004.
Asian American Political Alliance
Asian American Political Alliance - The Asian American Political Alliance was a protest group formed at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1968. This release covers the FBI investigation of the group and its leaders from 1969 through 1972. The FBI was especially interested in the contact the group or its members had with Chinese communists abroad.
It was not until I was in college in the late 1960's that, through learning more about Chinese American history and doing actual organizing work among immigrants in the Chinese communities of Boston and San Francisco, I came to have a deep respect for Chinese immigrants, particularly immigrant working people.
[bIn this regard, many inspiring individual immigrants impacted my thinking.
He talked about the sad and painful experience of leaving a China ravaged and torn by U.S. and other foreign powers, and of the extreme discrimination and hardships in the U.S. during the Depression.
In response, a group of Chinese had gotten together to form the Chinese Workers Mutual Aid Association, a community mass organization of over 600 members, to organize Chinese workers into the U.S. trade unions and to support the liberation struggle in China. He told me about how many Chinese immigrants had joined left movements, many becoming Marxist-Leninists, to fight to change the fundamental inequalities that Chinese in the U.S. face.
This understanding, taking place over several years, helped me to reorient my life toward Chinese people, to become a Marxist-Leninist and to deal with the complex questions of uniting immigrant and American-born Chinese and to build a powerful Chinese National Movement which, together with the movements of Blacks, Chicanos and all oppressed peoples in the U.S. and US. workers, would fight for fundamental change in society.
Soros has spent hundreds of millions supporting various anti-government movements, including the Women’s March, the People’s Climate March, the Tax Day protests and far left Berkeley protest group Refuse Fascism. The ACLU also began actively organizing and training protest movements just one month after Soros sank $35 million into the group. On May 26th, 2017, Disobedient Media reported that Soros was also supporting groups who were using the net neutrality movement as a means of promoting censorship of alternative and conservative media outlets.
The CCP is still, today, actively seeking to influence and persuade you.
