FEMINISM: MASK FOR MARXISM?
Tom Valentine's guest on Radio Free America (Shortwave, 5.065 MHz, mon-fri, 9 pm cst) on December 28, 1994 was Andrea Pearson, editor-in-chief of a newsletter called "Americans In Exile" [contact info to be included below]. Ms. Pearson has some non- politically correct views on Feminism, etc. Note that views expressed in the following do not necessarily reflect my own views or those of Conspiracy Nation.

And now, the newspaper that "tells it like it is" presents Tom Valentine.
Hello, everybody. Welcome back, to Radio Free America.
And before I get to my guest and to our topic tonight, I want to bring up something that I mentioned in the first hour.
The New York Times lead editorial today [12/28/94] should be framed and hung on the mantle like the antlers of a trophy animal by a big hunter, down at The Spotlight. "The Miscalculation in Chechnya," it says.
"President Boris Yeltsin was justified," (get that), "...was justified in using force against the breakaway Russian republic of Chechnya."
So, right off the bat, the opinion of the owners of the New York Times organization is, that Yeltsin was "justified" in this that we're watching on the media right now.
And it was The Spotlight that pointed out yesterday, or this week's Spotlight points out that the bankers are behind the move on it, and that Russia got the nod from the united States. In fact, on December the 11th, Boris Yeltsin was given the green light to go ahead and attack, according to The Spotlight, by none other than Strobe Talbot of the Clinton administration!
The very last paragraph of this long, rambling [New York Times] editorial chastising Boris Yeltsin for being clumsy as he carries out the orders from the boardroom... The very last paragraph says, "Washington has an interest in keeping Russia and 'reform' intact." It does. And this is the wonderful paragraph here, that belongs on the mantle: "After initially giving Mr. Yeltsin a green light for military intervention [in Chechnya]..."
They just got through chewing him out for being clumsy and his application of the military and his not finding a political solution. But they're admitting that Mr. Yeltsin was given a green light by the Clinton administration. Well how is it the Clinton administration can give the Russian bear a green light to kill people if it isn't somebody higher up? And I don't mean God, but people playing God with all the money -- the bankers.
This editorial, folks, you should get it and frame it. Today's New York Times editorial on Chechnya. It's an excellent piece to prove our point.
Now. We gotta change gears, change subject, totally. On Radio Free America, whenever I have open phones in the last few years, one of my, I would call 'em regular callers, is a lovely lady. She calls in from Pittsfield, Massachusetts. And she always has something intelligent to contribute. And so last week when she called and we were talking, I asked her if she'd be a guest. And she has agreed to be a guest. So I want to introduce Andrea, from Pittsfield, Massachusetts. Of course, we always use only first names of callers. However, Andrea, you have stepped out of the anonymity of caller-ship and you have... Your last name is "Pearson". Andrea Pearson, you are no longer anonymous.
Welcome to Radio Free America.
Good evening, Tom.
Because we men... And if you're brought from a traditional family, you are taught by your parents that uh, the "ladies first" and to have courtesy and that the distaff side of things is to get all of your attention. And we do for our women. That's the purpose of a man being alive. We're taught that.
And you're saying that, because of that, these feminists have an edge in pushing their agenda.
My guest is Andrea Pearson, from Pittsfield, Massachusetts. And the gender war, being used on us. I'm Tom Valentine, this is Radio Free America.
All right, we are back, live. And my guest is Andrea Pearson. And she's out of Pittsfield, Massachusetts.
And before we go anywhere further with your thesis and so forth, Andrea... When you say "Marxist"... Now that has a different connotation to a lot of different people. My idea of a Marxist is one thing, yours may be another. How are you using "Marxism", "Marxist"?
But they also have very strong beliefs about marriage. They believe that marriage is a system imposed by a patriarchal, capitalistic system, by men, onto women. And that it's something that is used by men, against women, by force.
Well the U.N. has an interest in that. And they have an interest and it's very strong. There's a Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women. And we, as a nation, have had a Congress and President who have decided that they want to impose that, as the force of law, upon the American people. And what my contention is, is that the basic premise of Feminism is faulty. And that women were never discriminated against in America. And that they actually chose a different role: That they preferred to live in marriages. And they preferred to raise their own children. And they preferred this in an equal relationship before God -- although their role was different.
Now you say legislation had something to do with this. How about giving me an example.
I can tell ya, being a student in high school in '49, '50, '51, '52, that that wasn't true.
Oh it certainly isn't true...
My guest is Andrea Pearson. And we're talking about the gender war, and Marxism. I'm Tom Valentine. This is Radio Free America.
We are live, again. And on the other end of the telephone is Andrea Pearson. And we're gonna be continuing to talk about the Gender Equity in Education Act. I profess a great deal of ignorance here on this subject.
Andrea, I believe you put out a little newsletter or something on this, don't you?
Now, this Gender Equity in Education Act. (I should know all about it.) I don't know a thing about it. When'd they pass this?
Also, in the U.N. [United Nations] treaty, they talk about this same sort of thing being put into the education system. We're getting into conformity with U.N. law here.
Andrea is my guest, Andrea Pearson and the American in Exile. And we're gonna open up the phone lines to you.
I'm Tom Valentine. This is Radio Free America.
All right. We are back, live. My guest is Andrea. Andrea Pearson, the producer of "Americans in Exile" newsletter, out of Post Office Box 2636, in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, 01202.
And Andrea, this Gender Equity in Education Act sounds like a massive thing, sort of like the crime bill. And it slipped through in 1993. There wasn't a lot of fanfare, was there?
Then it later... This is one thing that they're going to give grants to support, is grants to local education agencies to improve educational performances of "at risk" students by removing barriers to their learning.
The trouble is, is with Bill of Rights, is that what happens is, the government starts stepping in and saying that poverty, and someone who's unemployed, may in fact be... uh, that constitutes "dysfunction" within a family. And you know as well as I do that this monstrous "child protective services" industry that's been set up, [it] gobbles up people.
Now the trouble is, is that what's happening in this country is we are having Marxism imposed with the force of law on the people. And Marxists believe that children should be in the care of the State. Now the forceable removal of children is one thing. But the coercion of the child away from the American culture and values, their Christian, or Judeo-Christian values, is something that I think would disturb a lot of people. And the roles of husband and wife are something that our government has an unhealthy interest in.

Did you know that this Feminism, that she's talking about, had this Marxist agenda? And it's been insidious! You know, they... What was it that somebody said? "You don't lose your freedom in one big fell swoop. You lose it little by little." I think that's what's happening here, Andrea.
Absolutely, I think it is. Also, when Congress considered passing this U.N. treaty, they talk about how "patterns of conduct" is in article five of the treaty.
All right. Now this U.N. Convention, this treaty, is this the one that goes clear back to 1957, in establishing the U.N.?
Now what this treaty does, in lots of ways, is it regulates conduct, it alters culture... It talks about how the State should provide for health care, and women should have equal opportunity for all sorts of things -- that I don't think the American people want women to have equal opportunity, say, for military service. Or we don't necessarily feel that our "patterns of conduct" or our culture are something that we want changed.
What disturbs me the most about this is that there was no public debate about this [e.g. The Gender Equity in Education Act]. And I believe that anyone who's a historian or who has studied American history knows that people like Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and so forth, were not "white male dictators" in general, and certainly did not abuse their wives. And yet Marxists believe that they did.
Just this one piece of evidence of that: if you look at the Notes on the State of Virginia by Thomas Jefferson... And he's writing, in this case, about the American Indians. But he's talking about how they relate, in terms of men and women. And he says, "It is civilization alone which places women in the enjoyment of their natural equality."
And I believe that, in America, women were free creatures who were very happy the way they were. And not only that, they worked when they wanted to. There was, in fact, no discrimination against women.
All right. If you'd like to join us, 1-800-878-8255. Andrea Pearson is my guest. "Feminizing and Marxizing Us". I'm Tom Valentine, Radio Free America.
All right, we are back, live. And a very important part of everyday life is being discussed tonight: the role of women in this here united States of America.
Mark, [in] Sarasota. You're on, with Andrea.
I have one point that I want to just clarify with you. You mentioned that it's our Judeo-Christian heritage. Actually, it's really our Christian heritage. And that's an important part and it should be emphasized too. That when we go back and we're talkin' about people like Thomas Jefferson and some of our founding fathers and George Washington, remember that this was a Christian heritage. It wasn't a Judeo-Christian heritage. Many of the Marxist, Communist ideas have been introduced in the Judeo- Christian churches today which are not really our founding, Christian heritage at all.
And I think that the Biblical history as well is something that shows very clearly what the role of women should be. And it's often referred to in the New Testament. Also, those kinds of things are found in the Old Testament, such as the ruling of Appolya(?), or Jezebel, in Judah. I don't think that (even though I sense in many of the Jewish people that they espouse this kind of agenda), I think that many people who are Christians, or who call themselves Christians, often have incorporated the Feminist agenda into their very churches. I hear [of] female ministers and female priests, and I don't believe that that's something that's according to God's law! I think that...
But as a man, and someone who tries to exercise their rights over children, it becomes very difficult. And how to attack it: I've done a little research, reaching, uh studying Kent's commentaries and Blackstone's commentaries. I've discovered that even the common law doesn't really help that much. It seems like the common law has been divided into, well, I think it's been traversed. I call it, "the king's common law". And I think the last caller has a pretty good point. I studied Judaism a little bit, and it looks like, in the Jewish religion, that the mother is held up as the head of the family. And under the king's common law, the kind of like, you know, in the old days, about legitimizing a child and all that -- and it has a lot to do with today's "birth certificate". If you don't have a birth certificate, you lose... you know, you almost... You try to retain your rights to your child, but without the birth certificate you're in a paradox and you lose your rights to the child.
And if you look into the law libraries, you can read about using the petition of habeas corpus to bring the child forth. And I think this is evidence that the Biblical common law was where the father was head of the family and, you know, as long as he obeyed God's law. And well, whoever, you know, really disobeyed the law of God was actually the one who should be, you know, punished or what have you. But the child should stay with the father as long as, you know, he obeyed...
Gene, I appreciate your call.
Dan, in Schenectady, New York!
First, I wanna say, number one, is the comments with regard to the laws passed and everything: I think the issue that many of us are concerned about is, a lot of times (in the dark of night, so to speak) laws are passed that nobody knows much about. And it really brings us to the question of localism. In not just, you know, laws, but in virtually controlling the community around us. A lot of the things that are mentioned in the law that Andrea raised, or I should say, that was passed, are probably more proper items for a local community. Because a lot of times it depends on that local community -- its mores, their social conditions, and what's involved. And a lot of times, we lose track of the fact that, you know, the whole, the whole issue of our Constitution, etc., invests a lot of power downward. From the federal level, down to the local communities.
I'm Tom Valentine. This is Radio Free America.
All right, we are back, live. My guest is Andrea Pearson. And she has been pointing out (and I think very nicely) that we have had a creeping Marxism in the feminizing-type laws -- especially one that was passed in 1993, the Gender Equity in Education Act. Hardly any of us knew anything about it; I don't know of anybody here that was really up on that one. And I don't remember the media "beating it to death" [i.e., covering it a lot].
And the other one is that we are under a United Nations Convention that's not yet been ratified, but it started in 1980. And if we do ratify it, it's gonna be worse than the World Trade Organization!
I think it will be far worse, because the people who are trying to destroy us have in mind a way for us to live.
And particularly, for a minute, I would like to bring out that I don't think that the answer at this point is to think about changing the local systems to separate from the federal government. But rather, I think what's important is for the men of this country to realize that, as men, they have a God-given role within the family to be a provider and a protector. And that many men in this country have been deprived of their ability to do that, because of government policy. And thus, this kind of invasion of the family becomes possible.
You know, my wife would agree. She says it's the men who have failed to be the head of the houses that have let this country down.
You've had three men callers, and now we have a lady out there. I wonder if she agrees or not.
Doris, [in] Deep Creek, Florida.
And now, they're starting to hear it on different stations; they're starting to read it in the newspaper. And this is all being done undercover, with a lot of parents not even being aware.
Also, the children are on computer data bases! Everything they ask the child, under psychology tests, everything that is programmed with the child -- Outcome Based Education. And there's privacy: parents cannot see it.
Andrea, we're gonna have to bring you back. Because one hour is not enough time for this. But I wanna plan it again, if you don't mind. And we'll talk about this subject again. Is that all right with you?
Thank you very much for giving up your time tonight. We will be doing it again.
Andrea's newsletter is, "Americans in Exile". And it's Post Office Box 2636. (This is where you write to. She'll send you a sample of her newsletter dealing with this feminizing Marxism behind the scenes, and so forth.) Americans in Exile, Post Office Box 2636, Pittsfield, Massachusetts, 01202. Her telephone is (413) 499-3593. There ya go.
Andrea, thank you very much.
All right! We're gonna take a break for the alleged "news". (I'm almost sorry to take a break; that's a good subject. We'll have to do it again.) We'll return. I have a brand new congressman, the guy that beat Jack Brooks down in Tejas [i.e. Texas]. See ya then.
