It is interesting to watch the development of the level of awareness regarding the association of the Pioneer Fund with both The Bell Curve and FAIR, the sponsors of Proposition 187. Is there any indication that awareness of the origins of other anti-Immigration legislation (1924 and 1950's) from the Laughlin-Draper Pioneer Fund crowd is growing? I would sincerely hope so. Watch how the Reich Wing Republican's and Gingrich's version of "The Contract On America" develop their themes of the Third Reich and the post World War II fascists on an everyday unrelenting basis. Constant utilization of scapegoating, demonizing, and xenophobia are required in order to divide and conquer. And believe me they are succeeding more often than not. The faint hearted or easily offended should know that the language and terminology of the Reich Wing, used herein, may be termed offensive or insulting by some, but this approach is needed in order to make the point. The Platform of the Reich Wing Contract On America 1) The United Nations must be completely ignored, disbanded and avoided (leaks of sensitive documents in Somalia used as grist for the mill, or use the claim that Haiti was somehow a "complete failure" of the UN) 2) The alleged genetic inferiority of minorities must be emphasized (Bell Curve, Proposition 187, Pioneer Fund, Bradley Foundation and the alleged superiority of WASPs must be re-emphasized and relished.) Before a pogrom can be launched, depersonalization must be complete. After all, they are not like you and me, so they can not be very good. 3) Abortionists and abortion doctors must be described as pariahs, non-religious, atheists and only motivated by financial rewards. After depersonalization, it is much easier to incite violent actions, pass legislation, and to sway voters to your white knight candidates . 4) Rolling back the Great Society, the New Deal and the New Frontier must be achieved including Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity, Women's Rights, Civil Rights, etc. (Linkage to minorities and homosexuals required.) 5) Labor Unions must be discouraged and destroyed or described as socialist, communist-backed, dominated by Italian-American thugs, or meant only to help those mythical "unpopular louts", including the slothlike, belligerent low-income morons. Downsizing of major corporations can be used as an excuse to reverse Affirmative Action and to send out a message to those who are able to retain their jobs. 6) The concept of "Gays in the Military" must be tightened to include the most pernicious brand of identification (pink triangles) and ostracism. How can you round them up, if they have not been branded, after all? 7) The CIA, which is the ONLY intelligence agency that is still totally independent from the defense department, must be totally eliminated or merged into an existing agency in order to gain control of them. The CIA should not be permitted to disagree with ANY of the Pentagon assessments regarding external or internal threats from any source. If the CIA can be solely blamed for Iran-Contra or JFK, instead of letting it fall onto The Council for National Policy, or the Reich Wing of the Republican Party, then all the better. 8) Anyone defined by the Republican Reich as "useless eaters" should be targeted for retribution, then public scorn and then denial of rights. (Illegal immigrants, minority school lunch programs or impoverished school lunch programs, welfare mothers, people on public assistance, impoverished old age pensioners, etc.) 9) Gun control or environmental activists must be demonized as liberals, communists, minorities, pacifists, wimps, and non-humans as needed. The balanced budget amendment can NOT include taking guns or rockets out of the hands of our military leaders who need them for their power. Without the money flow through Lockheed, Rockwell, Martin-Marietta, et al, the Reich Wing Republicans would be rendered impotent and totally useless. They desperately need their power symbols for actualization. After all handgun control can often lead to assault rifle control, then to grenade launcher control, rocket control, then bomber control, and then... who knows what else? Civilian control of the Military? Never! Shute, Kennedy was the last one who tried that stunt and look at him. 10) Those opponents of this ten-part program must be monitored, followed and otherwise harrassed in order to assure that there is no organized resistance to any aspect of the master plan of the so called "New Majority". Looks like the "Silent Majority" theme has been rehashed. The Internal Security and the intelligence operations must be controlled by those who know what's best for us and for our Contract On America. If you can't control the investigation and all of the investigators then how can you be assured of the actual outcome? "...a small organized minority can always control a disorganized majority." Richard Viguerie "...have you ever seen how a tugboat moves an ocean liner? A little push here, a little pull there. But the tugboat suceeds in getting the ocean liner to go exactly where it wants it to go." ...paraphrasing Paul Weyrich - The Coors Connection They continue to encourage the "bundling of agendas", so a perfect counter measure on our part would include the same tactics. Do not allow them to draw you into a detailed micro-analysis of the merits and demerits of any ONE individual proposition on their Contract On America, but rather focus on the overall parallels to the not-so-well-hidden agendas of their Reich Wing and the agendas of The Third Reich. ============================================================================ Note: The LA Times offers an online browse and retrieval service via Prodigy or by using a direct dial into their system for a $5 per month fee.

Copyright 1994/The Times Mirror Company Los Angeles Times November 6, 1994, Sunday, Home Edition Both Sides Air Ads on Prop. 187 AD WATCH. Campaign '94. One in an occasional series PAGE: A-35 TYPE: Series Both sides of the Proposition 187 debate have been running ad campaigns about the initiative, which would bar illegal immigrants from receiving public school education, non-emergency health care and social services. Taxpayers Against 187 is running a 30-second TV spot. Two independent groups that support Proposition 187--the Washington, D.C.-based Federation for American Immigration Reform, and the Orange County-based California Coalition for Immigration Reform--are running 60-second radio ads. * THE AD "AGAINST": As a lengthy list of public officials and organizations opposing Proposition 187 streams by on the TV screen, a narrator states that the measure would result in a crime increase because it would lead to 300,000 youngsters being kicked "out of school and onto the street." It goes on to say that the measure also does "nothing to beef up enforcement at our borders" and would cost California $15 billion. The ad concludes with a visual of newspaper headlines that refer to "ties" between Proposition 187 and a white supremacist group. * THE ANALYSIS: Law enforcement officials including Los Angeles County Sheriff Sherman Block and Los Angeles Police Chief Willie L. Williams say that Proposition 187 could lead to increased crime problems. A nonpartisan state legislative analyst's report has stated that about $15 billion annually in federal funds for health, social service and educational programs would be placed at risk by Proposition 187 because it would breach federal confidentiality requirements. The ad does not make clear that the loss of funds is only a possibility. The supremacist headlines refer to allegations made by Taxpayers Against 187 concerning a link between measure co-author Alan Nelson, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (known as FAIR) and the New York-based Pioneer Fund, which has sponsored research by scientists who have held that blacks are inherently intellectually inferior to whites. That link, however, is decidedly tenuous. When Nelson helped write Proposition 187, he was working as a lobbyist for FAIR, which receives an annual contribution from the Pioneer Fund. * THE ADS "FOR": The FAIR ad blasts the campaign tactics of Taxpayers Against 187, which is run by Woodward & McDowell, a Burlingame-based professional political consulting firm. "Taxpayers Against 187 is really a slick Bay Area p.r. firm hired by government employees and other special interests and what they want from you, the real taxpayer, is an open-ended commitment to pay for services that like a magnet attract a never-ending flow of illegal immigrants to our state," the ad states. The ad by the California Coalition for Immigration Reform rebuts charges that the measure would turn teachers and doctors into immigration agents and that white supremacists are affiliated with the measure. "The loss of $15 billion in federal funds is a scare tactic, nothing more," the ad says, according to a script read to The Times. * THE ANALYSIS: Taxpayers Against 187, a coalition of education, health and law enforcement organizations opposed to the measure, is operated on a day-to-day basis by Woodward & McDowell. But evidence is mixed concerning whether educational, health and social services--which are already limited for undocumented immigrants--drive people to immigrate illegally. According to many experts, jobs are the leading factor. Proposition 187 does not specifically call for teachers or doctors to check on the immigration status of students and patients. But the measure does require a check of residency status before people can go to school or be treated in virtually all hospitals and health clinics. Those reasonably suspected of being illegal immigrants would be reported to state and federal authorities.

Meanwhile, LAPD Chief Willie L. Williams and a wide range of Southern California religious leaders issued statements opposing the sweeping ballot measure, which seeks to eliminate most government services for illegal immigrants and require educational, health and law enforcement officials to report suspects to federal authorities. The radio flap concerns purchase of ad time by the Washington-based Federation for American Immigration Reform, a group known as FAIR that previously had indicated it was making no financial contributions in support of Proposition 187. FAIR Executive Director Daniel A. Stein, acknowledging that the organization has reserved radio time for the last week of the campaign, said it is doing so only to be able to respond to recent ads aired by Taxpayers Against 187, a coalition of organizations opposed to the ballot measure. But spokesman Joel Maliniak of Taxpayers Against 187, which made public the pending FAIR radio campaign Tuesday, said that FAIR officials have "been caught lying with their pants down." During the campaign, FAIR, whose former Sacramento lobbyist, Alan Nelson, co-wrote Proposition 187, has come under repeated attack from the taxpayers group for receiving a portion of its annual funding from the New York-based Pioneer Fund. The latter is a group that has also sponsored research by various scientists, including the late William B. Shockley, who contended that African Americans are inherently intellectually inferior to whites. Citing the indirect link between Nelson and the Pioneer Fund, Taxpayers Against 187 have charged in their radio ads that the ballot measure is backed by white supremacists. Stein said any ads that FAIR now runs would be "to defend ourselves." Stein, who has previously taken pains to point out that his organization had nothing to do with the drafting of Proposition 187, added that his group's ad "may (also) say vote for 187--it won't say vote against it." "FAIR has attempted to distance itself from Proposition 187," responded Maliniak. "This latest development completely contradicts FAIR's denials and leaves absolutely no doubt about its involvement behind the scenes at the Yes on 187 campaign." Cardinal Roger M. Mahony and other top religious leaders gathered Wednesday in Los Angeles for a news conference reaffirming their opposition to the measure.
