FBI Documents Show Chinese Influence In Bay Area Protest Groups

by William Craddick, Disobedient Media:

Documents released by the FBI Records Vault have revealed a troubling connection between figures associated with Chinese communist affiliated protest groups in the 1960’s and 70’s and Bay Area politicians. The FBI identified a number of individuals who were working with groups that were militant and Chinese-oriented in nature. Today, these individuals are involved with organizations who financially and politically support figures tied to protest groups operating in San Francisco, including the far left movement By Any Means Necessary (BAMN). The parties involved in support for these protest groups are also tied to institutions connected to billionaire George Soros.

I. Wellstone Action’s Ties To Advocacy Groups

The progressive advocacy organization Wellstone Action was founded by Jeff Blodgett to train community organizers, student activists, campaign staff, progressive candidates and elected officials. Based in Minnesota, it also runs the Wellstone Democratic Renewal Club in Berkeley, California. The club is an attempt to foster a “grassroots movement for progressive change” which participates anti-Trump protests in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as promotes the notion that the Russian government interferes in U.S. elections. Partners of Wellstone Action include the Bush Foundation, The Ballot Initiative Strategy Center, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the George Soros funded organization

The Wellstone Democratic Renewal Club and Wellstone Action are also affiliated with a PAC bearing the Club’s name. The Center for Responsive Politics lists the PAC’s treasurer as Floyd Huen. Huen is the husband of Oakland mayor Jean Quan. A page showing the PAC’s 2016 donations reveals that donors included The Wellstone Club, Floyd Huen and Wilma Chan, a California Assemblywoman who served as California State Assembly Majority Leader from 2002 to 2004.

II. The Red Guard Party And Connections To Chinese Maoists

Huen and Chan’s affiliation with the Wellstone PAC is troubling given their history with groups investigated the FBI for involvement with Chinese-tied Communists and militant activity. On February 3rd, 2017, the FBI Records Vault tweeted out a series of four documents, detailing an FBI investigation into the Asian American Political Alliance (AAPA) and the connections that the AAPA’s members had to Chinese communists abroad. Huen was described as one of the AAPA’s most active leaders.

The investigation was incredibly broad in scope. Bureau branches in Boston, Chicago, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Newark, New Haven, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles all participated in efforts to uncover the AAPA’s ties. The FBI’s reports cite concerns about “Maoist” factions tied to the Chinese government who the FBI noted were active in multiple parts of the U.S., especially on the West Coast. Agents were particularly focused on looking into groups operating in San Francisco and the University of California, Berkeley given the area’s reputation as a hotbed for activism and connection with various groups suspected of extremist ties.

One of the groups FBI investigators focused on was the Red Guard Party, or Red Dragon Party. Founded in 1969 as a “street youth party,” the group was ostensibly focused on improving living conditions for Chinese Americans, but in reality was a paramilitary organization that pushed Chinese communist ideology and was openly supportive of infamous Chinese leader Mao Zedong. The FBI’s interviews with the leader of the Red Guard Party revealed that the group was in possession of weapons and would regularly study the teachings of Mao Zedong, as was common for Red Guard factions in China to do.

    “… including the far left movement By Any Means Necessary (BAMN).”

    And this group has not been officially designated a “hate group”, because… ?
