This is scary, smoke and mirror time from the radical left.

Hmm, how many of these national sponsors are Communist/Leftwing groups?

Well, all of them! Actually they are all part of the "peace left".
Most of the leaders of these so called sponsors are not pacifists and are not really interested in peace as such, but in radical agendas that are served by opposing America’s war on terror.

The peace left’s core consists of the ideological descendants of the communist/progressive left that wanted the West to lose the Cold War to the Soviet Union. This no mere motley crew of inconsequential fringe extremists, but is in fact the well-organized, militant, and immensely influential driving force behind the contemporary peace movement and the enormous anti-war rallies it has staged in the past.

In word and deed, these allies make it plain that they consider everything about the United States to be evil and unworthy of preservation; that they wish to see American society and its way
of life crushed by any means necessary, including violent revolution.

These groups are self-described patriotic lefts – have failed to draw any similar distinctions between itself and the radical, anti-American left that in fact does endorse the permanent destruction of American society. Nowhere is this failure to dissociate from America’s enemies more evident than in the peace movement, where teeming masses of people have participated in demonstrations organized by hard-line Communists whose most fervent wish is not to bring about the establishment of a lasting peace, but rather to see the United States toppled by an attack from without or a revolution from within.

The average American is unaware when it comes to discerning who these people are and what their real agenda is.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Hi RightToCarry great comment. I agree with you.

And this "The average American is unaware when it comes to discerning who these people are and what their real agenda is..".......I see this all the time and wonder why. Why people when they hear things, read things don't get that feeling in their gut what is being done or said that is in fact leading to the destruction of America. And realize who is truly behind it.

Your comment is excellent thank you soooo much.
