The "Central Committee of Conscientious Objectors" is an organization which "supports and promotes individual and collective resistance to war and preparations for war", according to its website.
Among the resources available on the website are How-to guides on being AWOL, various reasons for getting out of the military, as well as a list of reasons one should not join the US military.
The following picture on its website illustrates the goal of the organization:
This organization lists among its sponsors former Democratic congressman Ronald Dellums of California. Dellums was an anti-war, anti-military radical who created a stir during the Vietnam war by giving a speech condemning US military action while standing under a North Vietnamese flag on the steps of the Capitol.
Other sponsors of this organization:
Robert C. Aldridge
Fmr Supervisor Harry Britt
Prof. Noam Chomsky
Prof. Charles L. Schwartz
The website also lists the following as board-members of the CCCO:
Teresa Panepinto: Communist radical and "coordinator of the GI Rights Hotline"
I'm offended by the word "humanity". Why does it have to be huMANity and not huwomanity? Such a sexist culture...
ah yes RED RON,.... I hadn't heard that name in years and had been enjoying that. He used to run his speeches by Fidel before he gave them on the floor of the House.
Hey guys call all the Nam Vets, here's a name from our past that we Despise! Red RON is at it again and with a "Central Committee" no less.
America is wonderful. Young men and women are sent into harms way to protect and liberate... meanwhile this list of enemies are free to go about their daily lives. If this were any other country they would probably be shot or at least sent to prison.
Dellums was not anti-war in 1971 when I attended one of his speeches. He called for the ARMED OVERTHROW OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. If the KGB was not paying him, then he was working for free. It illustrates where the dim party was not long ago that Dellums headed the Armed Services Committee and had access to classified information. Oops, that's where the dims still are.
He was called Red Ron for a very good reason.
Uh, someone forgot to tell these geniuses that the 60s are over and we have an all-volunteer military.
The list of sponsors of the organization is quite the rogues gallery.
Petition for Durbin's resignation!
Someone finally did it, Please pass this around.
I thought that is what the military is supposed to do...make you paranoid and homicidal.
May I also add that joining the Democratic party is hazard to your hummanity!!
