Terrorist Activities in North America

There are two Trotskyite organizations in Canada. One of these, the League for Socialist Action/Ligue Socialiste Ouvrière LSA/LSO, supports the minority Leninist-Trotskyist Faction which believes terrorism may be a useful tactic in the future. The other, the Revolutionary Marxist Group, RMG, which has its principal base among French-speaking Canadians in Quebec, is a staunch supporter of the “terrorism now” International Majority Tendency.

During the 1970 wave of terrorism by the Front de Libération du Québec, FLQ, Canadian Trotskyites tried to maintain a low profile. They were embarrassed by the open support of terrorism in Canada by their British com­rades in the International Marxist Group, IMG, and its publication, at that time called The Red Mole.

Joseph Hansen of the Socialist Workers Party described the problem of his Canadian comrades:

“While the Canadian Trotskyists were trying to differentiate their own position from the ultraleft one taken by The Red Mole, they were confronted by an even worse problem — what to do about the remarks made by Comrade Tariq Ali on a television panel filmed at Oxford by CTV, the national Canadian television net­work. This program was shown throughout Canada, while our comrades, like the rest of the left, were doing their best to mobilize a massive defense against the repression.

Some very provocative questions were directed at Comrade Ali. In answering, he did not appear to keep well in mind the situation in Canada and the need to help to the best of his ability in mobilizing a broad defense against the repression.

For instance, he was asked: “Do you believe, sir, that society today has reached the point where you see you have to use violence to achieve your ends?”

Comrade Ali replied: “I would say that this is largely a tactical question, depending precisely on the degree of opposition which we encounter in our struggle for socialism. But briefly, the answer is yes. I think that to achieve the ends we believe in ////////////// to the establishment of a socialist republic. I believe that a certain element of violence is absolutely necessary.”

Another provocative question was: “When you were president of the Oxford Debating Union did you not invite Governor Wallace of Alabama to speak at the Oxford Union?”

Comrade Ali answered: “Yes. Do you know why? Because we would have killed him.”

That did not come off so well, and Comrade Ali was soon explaining: “Of course, when I say, ‘Kill him,’ I don’t mean it necessarily literally. It’s a tactical question. If I believed we could get away with killing him we would. It is a question of if you are organized to do so. I don’t think we are. I meant kill him politically. That is what we wanted to do, but that wouldn’t have taken place because Wallace wouldn’t have got further past Oxford Station.”

The setting for broadcasting this TV program, it should be underlined, was Canada in the midst of a great police hunt for urban guerrillas charged with kid­napping and murder. It was shown on the television screens during a repression in which our own headquarters and the homes of many comrades were raided, and two of our leaders were thrown into prison.

Comrade Ali did what he could to turn the provocative questions into a high-level dialogue on the difference between “individual terror” with mass support and “individual terror” without mass support — a distinction a bit too fine, one must suppose, for the Canadian audience to appreciate at the moment. “At times,” he said, “1 think that individual terror becomes necessary. I don’t believe in individual terror as a principle; I am completely opposed to it. I’ll give you a concrete instance. I don’t believe in solving this particular argument by shooting off a few people, who are making rude noises. Nor do I think individual terror can in itself bring you any nearer to what we believe in. Of course not. I believe that individual terror is justified when you have a mass movement, when you have mass support inside a particular society, then it is justified.”

Tariq Ali serves on the Fourth International Executive Committee under the alias “Ghulam.”2 He receives his salary from a U.S. tax-exempt organiza­tion, the Transnational Institute, TNI, of the Institute for Policy Studies, IPS, located in Washington, D.C. Ali, a Pakistani, is reportedly “working on a series of essays on Indian nationalism and communism” for the Trans­national Institute.3

The Institute for Policy Studies is a leftist think-tank which usually takes a pro-Soviet and pro-Cuban stance; and whose staff has included a variety of terrorist supporters and members of terrorist organizations. The Transna­tional Institute has offices both in Washington, D.C. and in Amsterdam, Holland. The TNI is headed by Eqbal Ahmad and a leading Castroite propagandist, Saul Landau.

On September 9, 1976, Basker Vashee represented the Transnational Institute of IPS at a congressional conference on southern Africa sponsored by the Fund for New Priorities in America. The conference was held in the Russell Senate Office Building. Vashee was identified to the audience by the conference moderator as “a member of the national executive of ZAPU.”1 ZAPU is the Zimbabwe African Peoples Union, a Soviet-supported terrorist group in Rhodesia headed by Joshua Nkomo.

Description

An impressive collection of facts and quotes concerning the Socialist Workers Party, its foreign ties, and alleged connection to terrorism; the author, Congressman Lawrence Patton McDonald, later vanished when the domestic Boeing he was on, flight KAL 007, was shot down in Soviet air space after it reportedly went off-course.

 

What is the FLQ but the Terrorist Wing of the NDP?

Who Is Running The Break-Up Of Canada?
“Liberals” Or NDP Communists?

DIVIDE, CONQUER & OVERTHROW:what

NDP plays the “Clarity” game for North American Union. They’ve been doing it for decades: turn the French against the English to break up the country, to dissolve the Constitution of Canada for North American Multicultural Soviet Union.

 

Where does Canada’s “break-up” come from?

It comes from the NDP’s man, Marxist-Machiavellian Trudeau, who promoted the NDP in 1963, and jumped to the Liberals AS A FRONT in 1965, to put Canada on the rails for his Marxist pals.

Using phony “trade deals” to hide the gradual remodeling of Canada for regional union, pending dissolution by phony referendums to “secede” as the means to dismantle Canada for regional union, Trudeau built up his Communist pal René Lévesque.

In the April 1962 issue of his magazine featured in the image at left, Trudeau and a raft of his fellow leftists promote regionalism for Canada as their “alternative” to the “separatism” which they, themselves, have been fomenting underground, creating the ‘problem’ so they could offer their own Marxist-globalist, anti-national, regional ‘solution’.

This begins the Trudeau march toward regional North American Union commenced by him and his own entourage in the 1950s. For, in the decade prior to this issue of Cité Libre, these same Marxists infiltrate Quebec trade unions and their publications, the daily newspapers such as La Presse and Le Devoir, and are encouraged by the federal broadcasting corporation, our outrageous CBC-Radio Canada, which virtually excludes all public opinion which opposes “the Left”. For eyewitness details on that, see my exclusive English translation of a couple of chapters from Robert Rumilly’s 1956 book, “The Leftist Infiltration in French Canada” (L’Infiltration gauchiste au Canada français).

The leftists infiltrated and undermined respectable nationalist institutions, diverting them all to their own leftist ideology, “class struggle” and support of violence and terror to destroy respectable Christian society.

These leftists, exposed by Rumilly, denounced the elected representatives of the French Canadians as “tyrants”. Well, what is their own alternative today? Under Marxist Trudeau’s 1982 coup constitution, which supposedly protects “rights”, a Christian minister, Pastor Mark Harding, has been convicted of “hate crimes” for opposing the advent of Islam in Canada. One of Canada’s new, Soviet-style socialist tribunals then sentenced the Christian pastor to “re-education camp” with a Muslim Imam, to forcibly alter his political and religious views, contrary to his own Christian conscience!

This same gang of Marxists in the 1950s, with the aid of their own Marxist lawyers, went to the Supreme Court of Canada to defend and protect the “rights” of Communists to freedom of conscience and expression. Apparently, now the tide has turned, these same Marxists having seized control of Canada, the new, true “tyrants” do not tolerate official views other than their own.

Meanwhile, back in the mid-1960s, Trudeau’s own pro-Soviet “Cité Libre” writers “quit” that magazine to become the two major FLQ terrorist leaders. One of the two also belonged to Trudeau’s true political choice, the NDP, before he “quit” to lead the terrorists: Pierre Vallières.

The other one, Charles Gagnon, would eventually “quit” the FLQ for the even more radical Maoists, and with Gilles Duceppe whose father was an NDP founding member, Gagnon then wrote for the even more radical magazine “En lutte !” (Struggle !).1

The NDP terrorists’ job: harness the FLQ to support Communist Lévesque and “sovereignty association” — which is the EU system for Canada, and the basis of global government over regional unions.

The NDP, like the CCF before it, has always supported world government; and both the NDP and its renamed version, the CCF, have always been members of the Socialist International, successor to the last Communist International, seeking world government.

Sedition is a criminal act. Sedition occurs when those in office abuse their power to promote or perpetrate unconstitutional acts. Turning citizens against each other is also the crime of sedition. Destroying the country and its lawful constitution is the high crime of treason known as a coup d’état — but you won’t notice who is really doing it, if you can blame it all on Quebec, by maligning its people while seizing and subverting its government.

There is no power to “secede” at s. 92 of the BNA Act, 1867; but that won’t stop a Marxist from infiltrating the Liberals to pretend there is one, any more than it will stop a Marxist from “quitting” the NDP to lead terrorists in demanding it. Thus, the NDP plays both ends against the middle!

And then comes FLQ terrorism: bombings and murders of Canadians, kidnappings, and phony “War Measures” by their man on top who infiltrated Canada for them. Let me underscore it: both major FLQ terrorist leaders came from Marxist-NDP-member-and-candidate Trudeau’s pro-Communist magazine, Cité Libre.2

In the midst of which, NDP Leader, Michel Chartrand:

“remained steadfast in his beliefs, and proved it by bailing FLQ leader Charles Gagnon out of jail, paying nearly three thousand dollars of his own money.”

That’s $3,000.00 in the 1960s.

What was the FLQ, if not the terrorist wing of the Marxist NDP, with its leaders issuing directly out of NDP’er Trudeau’s pro-Communist magazine?

Is terror a “Liberal” tool or a Marxist NDP tool?

Is “secession” a Liberal tool, or a Marxist NDP tool? Ask William Zebulon Foster, author of “Toward Soviet America” who threatened the USA with “secession” of the southern Black States.

Who but “former” NDP-Marxist-Cité Libre writer-FLQ terrorist leader, Pierre Vallières would falsely and maliciously call French Canada the “White Niggers of America,” thus modeling Quebec and the breakup of Canada on Foster’s Communist threats to use the Negroes in the southern “Black Belt” to split up America.3

The Liberals are always blamed for trying to annex Canada to the USA. That might be true if you are talking of real Liberals, who always wanted a republic. But it is not true if you are speaking of NDP Marxists who are closet Communists posing as Liberals and seeking North American Communist regional union: the destruction of that Republic, and of Canada.

Terror is not a tool of real Liberals; but it is a standard tool of Marxists, who wish to use it to abolish private property (check your NDP Party constitution, that’s a PLANK – no more private property).

 


“We have no compassion and we ask no compassion from you. When our turn comes, we shall not make excuses for the terror.”
— Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels “Suppression of the Neue Rheinische Zeitung“, Neue Rheinische Zeitung, May 19, 1849.

“Those dogs of democrats and liberal riff-raff will see that we’re the only chaps who haven’t been stultified by the ghastly period of peace.” – Karl Marx to Friedrich Engels (Letter, 25 February 1859).

Vallières entitled his pro-Communist diatribe “White Niggers of America”, adding a subtitle that fails to appear on subsequent big-press editions by McLelland and Stewart: The Precocious Autobiography of a Quebec “Terrorist”.

Vallières put “terrorist” in quotes on the cover, as if this unabashed description of an ignorant man who set out to lead murderers of his fellow citizens is inaccurate.

No greater defamation of parliamentary government could be heaped upon a nation and a people than to allege they are “slaves” in their country. No greater lie could be told than to pretend that French Canadians were “white niggers” and “slaves” in Canada.

The French Canadians in Quebec have always been “masters in their own house” in Confederation. They possessed supreme legislative institutions for their own self-government and protection. Whether they always knew how to use them, or even realized what they had, may be another question. Because if you know what you’ve got, you won’t easily buy the line that you are a “white nigger” and a “slave” in North America.

Moreover, Trudeau himself, arch-Marxist and beguiler, was well aware that French Canadians don’t know their own history and constitution (quite convenient to a Marxist deceiver). Law professor Trudeau admits it in the same April 1962 issue of Cité Libre featured above. Said Trudeau (translation):

“The upshot of all this is that in posing independence as a good thing in itself, an affair of dignity for every “normal people”, we launch the world on a strange war-ship. It has been claimed that any sincere anti-colonialist who wants independence for Algeria must also want it for Quebec. This reasoning contends that Quebec is a political dependency, which is to be ill informed of one’s constitutional history; but even if that were the case …. “

Footnotes:

1  Notice that today, Gilles Duceppe (ex-colleague of a Cité Libre terrorist) supports good old Communist regional union — underway now. In his 2005 article in French daily, Le Devoir, a paper long ago captured by the Marxists (read Rumilly), Duceppe demands “sovereignty” for Québec in order to protect its interests in the context of regional union.

In fact, regional union cannot be finalized until Canada and Quebec are both destroyed as sovereign entities, and that requires the initial step of a “Yes” in a final referendum to facilitate the “negotiations”. Which is precisely what the FLQ terrorists were created for: to provide an excuse to begin the “negotiations”.

Read my exclusive English translation of Duceppe’s: “For a continental integration respectful of the differences” or his French original: “Pour une intégration continentale respectueuse des différences“.

2  “Le directeur de Révolution québécoise, Pierre Vallières, 26 ans, est alors secrétaire du Syndicat des journalistes de Montréal (C.S.N.) et l’un des dirigeants de la grève en cours à La Presse. Ex-membre du parti socialiste, il a été codirecteur pendant six mois de Cité libre, une revue fondée par des intellectuels libéraux réformistes comme Pierre Elliott Trudeau et Gérard Pelletier pour combattre le régime Duplessis dans les années 50. Quant à Charles Gagnon, le secrétaire de la rédaction, il est chargé de cours en littérature à l’Université de Montréal. Âgé de 25 ans, il a œuvré à Cité libre avec Vallières et est très actif dans le mouvement étudiant.” Source: F.L.Q. Histoire d’un mouvement clandestin (1982) by Louis Fournier.

Translation: The director of Révolution québécoise, Pierre Vallières, is 26 years old, is secretary to the Syndicat des journalistes de Montréal (C.S.N.) (the Montreal journalists trade union), and is one of the directors of the strike underway at La Presse. A former member of the socialist party [meaning the NDP by another name in Quebec], he was a co-director for six months of Cité libre, a review founded by Liberal intellectual reformers such as Pierre Elliott Trudeau and Gérard Pelletier to combat the Duplessis régime in the 1950s. As for Charles Gagnon, a copy-editor, he is a junior lecturer in literature at the University of Montreal. Aged 25, he has worked at Cité libre with Vallières and is very active in the student movement.”

Translator’s note: Trudeau and Pelletier were not “Liberals” at the time they founded their Pro-Soviet Cité libre in the 50s. They were socialists and NDP’ers who modeled their review on the crypto-communist, pro-regionalist magazine Esprit in France which promoted Marxist principles, opposed traditional Christianity, and agitated for regionalism in Europe. Both men jumped to the Liberals in 1965 to use that other party as a front to push forward regional communist union for Canada and North America. You have to know a little before you read Fournier, who is a partisan of the leftist movement.

3  Said Communist author and leader William Z. Foster (pp. 303-304:

“The status of the American Negro is that of an oppressed national minority, and only a Soviet system can solve the question of such minorities. This it does, in addition to setting up real equality in the general political and social life, by establishing the right of self-determination for national minorities in those parts of the country where they constitute the bulk of the population. The constitution of the Soviet Union provides that, “Each united republic retains the right of free withdrawal from the Union.” “The recognition of the right of all nations, irrespective of race, to complete self-determination, that is, self-determination inclusive of the right to State separation.”

Accordingly, the right of self-determination will apply to Negroes in the American Soviet system. In the so-called Black Belt of the South, where the Negroes are in the majority, they will have the fullest right to govern themselves and also such white minorities as may live in this section.

Translator’s note: Ahoy, the double standard. If Negroes are a minority in all of the USA, the white majority is called upon to integrate them and give them equal rights to governance over all, which obviously would result in a quite different society, culture and form of government. However, if whites are a minority in the Black Belt, the Negroes will have the right to govern “over” them in a Soviet America.

In other words, the founding peoples of America, who happen to be white (a bad thing), have no right to preserve their own government and culture against dissimilar minorities. They have no right to ask these minorities to adopt their system. But these dissimilar minorities have an absolute right to subordinate white people to their own Black rule and culture. This is not statesmanship, but double-talk to divide and conquer existing powerful nations and peoples.

The same approach was taken in Canada by Cité Libre terrorist, Pierre Vallières, who chose to identify white French Canadians and Quebec in Canada with the Negroes of the Black Belt in William Foster’s American South.

execution by firing squad of two men charged with
sabotage in the destruction by fire of a $l,500,000 textile
warehouse at Camaguey last Sept. 7. Four others
including a woman, were sentenced to prison terms.

"Now it's North America's Turn": Stan Jones

TRANSCRIPT:

[ Stan Jones: ]

I wish to spo– I wish to thank the sponsors for inviting me. I don’t often get invited.

[Laughter.]

This was an important debate. I had planned another closing message, but I feel compelled to say what I’m about to say.

And I risk sounding like a conspiracy theorist. But, it’s no longer a theory. What I’m about to say is fact. The secret organizations of the world power elite are no longer secret. They have planned and are now leading us into a one-world Communist world government.

The combining of national governments started with the European Union. That union started with trade agreements, then a common currency — the Euro — and now a European parliament that is feverishly passing laws that override the laws of the member nations.

A constiution was drafted, but rejected by a few of those nations. But, never mind. They implemented it anyway.

Now, it’s North America’s turn.

Building on the North American Free Trade Agreement, the NAFTA section of the Commerce Department is busy drafting laws and regulations for a North American Union. A union of Canada, America and Mexico.

The President has attended secret meetings and signed at least two agreements under the Security and Prosperity Partnership program. Information leaked out about the meetings, and now it is all in the open.

No treaty has been signed, so Congress has not become involved. However, money from our treasury is now being spent for this effort.

We will have a new currency. The Amero. And a new constitution modeled on the Soviet Union’s constitution. Our rights will not be inalienable, but they will be granted by government, who can also take them away.

One sign that this is our future is plans for the superhighways from southern Mexico, through America and into Canada. These plans are not secret any longer. Huge amounts of property will be taken in the name of Free Trade, peace and security.

You will have a national ID card with a radio frequency chip in it. That’s already law* in America and will be implemented by May 2000. This man voted for it. You will not be able to move about, freely.

This is terrorism of the most worst kind. Brought on you by our own government.

The strongest, freest nation in the history of mankind will be averaged into world communism.

Is that what you want?

Are we, the people, still in control of this nation?

We must begin to act like we are.

[ Moderator: ] Thank you. Stan Jones.

On that, Conway Burns, three minutes.

[ Burns: ] Sure glad you got such a rosy outlook on our future for our kids.
