Anti-Reagan Protest 611

by A Saturday, Jun. 12, 2004 at 9:21 PM

Leimert Park Anti-Reagan Protest

QuickTime movie at 10.6 kibibytes

Partial list of Reagan’s Crimes against the people of this world

1. Betrayed his fellow union members in the actor’s guild by rating out their political affiliations to the FBI. First power grab in a career based on betrayal.

2. Ordered an attack on peaceful anti-war protesters by the National Guard when governor of California in the 1960s

3. Committed treason when he made a secret deal with Iran not to release US embassy hostages until after the 1980 November election in exchange for arms. Known as The October Surprise.

4. Invaded and occupied the Caribbean island of Grenada.

5. Waged a covert war of terror on the people of El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Cuba and most of Central and South America resulting in the deaths of 100,000s of innocent civilians. Including US citizens providing humanitarian aid to the region.

6. Backed Israel’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon, got over 200 Marines killed, then withdrew shelling the Lebanese coastline and civilian centers with navy gun ships in the process.

7. Used commercial airline flights to spy on the USSR. This resulted in the death of innocent passengers when a Korean Air plane entered USSR air space and was shot down.

8. Ignored the outbreak of AIDS. Actively blocked funding for research and treatment. Thousands went undiagnosed, untreated and died.

9. Used the CIA operations in Central America to traffic in cocaine while his wife toured the nation with the “Just Say No” drug abuse campaign. Funneled the profits from dealing cocaine to fund covert CIA operations including shipping arms to Iran, a state he had declared an enemy of the US. History records this as the Iran-Contra scandal. Most of this cocaine hit the streets of US cities in the form of crack, a highly addictive form of cocaine, ruining the lives of tens of thousands, mostly black urban poor.

10. Backed Saddam in his war against Iran and the Kurdish minority in Iraq. Gave chemical weapons to Saddam and provided intelligence for Saddam’s use of those weapons.

11. Provided funding, weapons and intelligence to Bin Laden and his organization in Afghanistan throughout the 1980’s.

12. Hid the fact that he had Alzheimer’s from the public while president and relied on his wife and staff to cover for him when he was unfit to hold office.

13. Fired air traffic controllers for striking and used the labor department and laws written to protect labor into a weapon against labor.

14. Gutted social programs and flooded the streets of the US with homeless.

15. Wasted billions on corrupt defense contracts accelerating the arms race with the USSR and created all time highs for the federal deficit.

16. Initiated the militarization of space. A violation of the SALT 1 and 2 treaty.

17. Deregulated almost every industry to the point of creating an open invitation to outright fraud resulting in the Savings and Loan scandal and junk bonds scandal for example.

18 Openly launched a racist attack on civil rights and called for the repeal of affirmative action.

19 Called for the overturning of Roe v Wade and actively worked to have this decision reversed. Issued the gag order preventing publicly funded physicians from advising women about their health options and their right to choose.

20. Promoted the policies of the current prison industrial complex with all its institutionalized racism. Criminalized drug addicts and the poor and filled the prison system with over 2 million people. Currently the largest number of people incarcerated by any nation state in the world and over 70% populated by people of color.

21. Repeatedly violated the separation of church and state principle in both statements and proposed laws.

22. Caused the USSR to go on nuclear alert after making a comment in his radio show. “We begin bombing in five minutes”

23. Purposely worked to undermine environmental protection laws though lack of enforcement.

24. Stared in some of the worst movies ever made. Movies that were overtly racist, sexist and homophobic.

Please note: this is only a partial list. A complete list and documentation would fill a library.
