America’s Survival, Inc. Opposes Stamp to Honor Walter Cronkite
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE October 22, 2015
America’s Survival, Inc. President Cliff Kincaid says the United States Postal Service should reject a request to create a commemorative postage stamp to honor the late CBS News Anchor and Managing Editor Walter Cronkite. “The terrible truth is that Walter Cronkite symbolized liberal media bias and used that bias with disastrous consequences for our nation and the world,” Kincaid said. “His latest cause was world government and the destruction of American sovereignty.”
An October 22, 1015 release from the Society of Professional Journalists and Radio Television and Digital News Association says the United States Postal Service is considering a joint request from the two groups to create a commemorative postage stamp to honor the late CBS News Anchor and Managing Editor Walter Cronkite.
Kincaid said, “We found out after his retirement that he was not only a liberal, which was evident from his broadcasts, but a one-worlder. In appearances before the World Federalist Association, which favors world government financed by global taxes, he called for the U.S. to renounce ‘some of its sovereignty’ and pass a series of United Nations treaties-many of which are now being pushed in the Senate by President Barack Obama.” Cronkite also called for an “international Liberty Bell.”
What’s more, Kincaid said, “The late CBS Evening News anchorman Walter Cronkite was named in an FBI document from 1986 as being targeted in a Soviet ‘active measures’ campaign against President Reagan’s anti-communist foreign policy.”
Kincaid said: “While Reagan pursued his arms buildup, including development of the Strategic Defense Initiative, and the Soviet Union eventually collapsed in 1991, the effort to save Vietnam from communism was not successful, thanks in large part to Cronkite’s influence. The bloody result: 58,260 U.S. servicemen and nearly one million civilians died in the Vietnam War. The South Vietnamese military lost about one quarter of a million dead, and over one million Communist soldiers were killed. Tens of thousands of South Vietnamese allies of the U.S. left behind after the American military withdrawal were tortured in communist camps. Thousands of others fled in leaky boats, becoming known as the ‘boat people.’ The government of Vietnam today remains a Communist dictatorship.
