Why is TV news ignoring the relationship between Moon and the Bush family?

Why won’t Con­gress and the tele­vi­sion news media inves­ti­gate the rela­tion­ship between the Bush fam­i­ly and Sun Myung Moon?

Online Journal/February 22, 2001

The fol­low­ing essay explains why the sto­ry is news­wor­thy. While TV talk­ing heads ham­mer the pub­lic hour after hour with rep­e­ti­tious chat­ter about Clin­ton’s par­dons and gos­sipy alle­ga­tions of “theft” of White House goods, the far more seri­ous Bush/Moon sto­ry remains invis­i­ble to TV audi­ences.

In order to unrav­el the mys­tery, let’s look at Moon’s his­to­ry and stat­ed agen­da and explore the Bush fam­i­ly’s activ­i­ties relat­ed to Moon. First, here is evi­dence that Moon is open­ly anti-Amer­i­can and anti-demo­c­ra­t­ic, with an agen­da that includes under­min­ing Amer­i­can democ­ra­cy and indi­vid­u­al­ism. These are only some of the rea­sons why a deep­er inves­ti­ga­tion into the Moon/Bush alliance is worth­while:

(1) Fred­er­ick Clark­son (Eter­nal Hos­til­i­ty, Com­mon Courage Press, 1997) reports that Moon has stat­ed his goal is the “sub­ju­ga­tion of the Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment and pop­u­la­tion.” (Clark­son’s source: John Jud­is, “Rev. Moon’s Ris­ing Polit­i­cal Influ­ence: His Empire Is Spend­ing Big Mon­ey To Try To Win Favor With Con­ser­v­a­tives,” U. S. News and World Report, March 27, 1989.)

(2) Accord­ing to the same U. S. News arti­cle, Moon also said, “His­to­ry will make the posi­tion of Rev. Moon clear,” and that “his ene­mies, the Amer­i­can peo­ple and gov­ern­ment will bow down before him.”

(3) Clark­son reports that Moon has also said, “The entire world is our goal . . . Absolute obe­di­ence to the Father [Moon]-that one thing will bring cer­tain vic­to­ry . . . Peo­ple here in Amer­i­ca have to rec­og­nize the abil­i­ty and pow­er of Rev­erend Moon.” (Excerpt from New Hope News, Novem­ber 25, 1974, Reprint­ed in Fred­er­ick Miller’s “Con­fu­sion at the Fronts, Part three,” True Light Edu­ca­tion­al Min­istry, 1996.)

(4) On May 1, 1997, Moon told a group of fol­low­ers that “the coun­try that rep­re­sents Satan’s har­vest is Amer­i­ca.” (Uni­fi­ca­tion News, June 1997.)

(5) In the 1970s, Moon was inves­ti­gat­ed by a con­gres­sion­al com­mit­tee head­ed by then‑U. S. Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Don­ald Fras­er (D‑MN). Robert Boettch­er was staff direc­tor of the Fras­er com­mit­tee. Boettcher’s inter­views with for­mer Moonies revealed that Moon was “appalled” by Amer­i­can indi­vid­u­al­ism and con­sid­ered mov­ing to Ger­many “where peo­ple were trained in total­ism.” (Robert Boettch­er, “Gifts of Deceit: Sun Myung Moon, Tong­sun Park and the Kore­an Scan­dal,” Holt, Rine­hart and Win­ston, 1980)

(6) Boettch­er writes that accord­ing to for­mer Uni­fi­ca­tion church mem­bers, Moon’s pro­gram to “instill dis­ci­pline” includ­ed show­ing “Nazi films on orga­niz­ing Hitler Youth.”

Moon’s anti-Amer­i­can, anti-demo­c­ra­t­ic rant­i­ngs might seem harm­less if expressed by an indi­vid­ual with no polit­i­cal clout. How­ev­er, the wealthy, influ­en­tial Moon has worked suc­cess­ful­ly to gain a pow­er base among con­ser­v­a­tive Repub­li­cans.

In an effort to gain polit­i­cal influ­ence, Moon has worked his ten­ta­cles into the news media. Fred­er­ick Clark­son writes that since its found­ing the news­pa­per the Wash­ing­ton Times “has been owned, con­trolled and bankrolled” by Moon.

For­mer Wash­ing­ton Times edi­to­r­i­al page edi­tor William Cheshire resigned because of alleged edi­to­r­i­al inter­fer­ence from Moon’s offi­cials.

Accord­ing to Clark­son, Cheshire also said he believes the Wash­ing­ton Times is oper­at­ing in vio­la­tion of the For­eign Agents Reg­is­tra­tion Act. Passed in the 1930s, the For­eign Agents Reg­is­tra­tion Act “requires enti­ties whose activ­i­ties are con­trolled by for­eign gov­ern­ments and cor­po­ra­tions to make finan­cial and oth­er forms of dis­clo­sure to the Jus­tice Depart­ment.”

Clark­son says the Act was orig­i­nal­ly passed “to expose covert Nazi fund­ing of Ger­man-Amer­i­can news­pa­pers.”

George H. W. Bush is one of the most polit­i­cal­ly pow­er­ful defend­ers of Moon and the Wash­ing­ton Times. Bush was CIA direc­tor when the Fras­er com­mit­tee inves­ti­gat­ed Moon, and he is well aware of Moon’s stat­ed agen­da and modus operan­di. At the time of the con­gres­sion­al inves­ti­ga­tion, Bush han­dled sen­si­tive mat­ters on U. S. rela­tions with Korea and the polit­i­cal fig­ures involved.

Accord­ing to a Reuters report, (“Bush Prais­es Moon as ‘Man of Vision,’ ” Novem­ber 25, 1996) when Moon held a ban­quet in Buenos Aires cel­e­brat­ing his new “Span­ish-lan­guage news­pa­per for the whole of Latin Amer­i­ca,” his guest at the event, George H. W. Bush, praised Moon’s “respect for edi­to­r­i­al inde­pen­dence.”

Bush’s speech “was full of praise” for Moon’s Wash­ing­ton Times, accord­ing to Reuters. The report also says Bush described Moon as “the man with the vision.” Reuters said Bush lat­er trav­eled with Moon to neigh­bor­ing Uruguay “to help him inau­gu­rate a sem­i­nary in the cap­i­tal, Mon­te­v­ideo. to train 4,200 young Japan­ese women to spread the word of his Church of Uni­fi­ca­tion across Latin Amer­i­ca.”

“I want to salute Rev­erend Moon who is the founder of the Wash­ing­ton Times and of the new paper here,” Bush said. Accord­ing to Reuters, the Wash­ing­ton Post report­ed that Bush was paid $100,000 for his Buenos Aires appear­ance.

Jour­nal­ist Robert Par­ry report­ed in Con­sor­tium News (“Dark Side of Rev. Moon: Buy­ing the Right”) that part of Moon’s strat­e­gy for gain­ing polit­i­cal influ­ence is to approach con­ser­v­a­tive lead­ers when they need mon­ey. “Moon qui­et­ly infus­es mon­ey and gains the lead­er’s grat­i­tude,” writes Par­ry.

For exam­ple, when con­ser­v­a­tive direct mail entre­pre­neur Richard Viguerie was hav­ing finan­cial trou­ble in the late 1980s, “Moon direct­ed more busi­ness his way and had a cor­po­ra­tion run by Moon’s lieu­tenant, Bo Hi Pak, buy one of Viguerie’s prop­er­ties for $10 mil­lion,” accord­ing to Par­ry. (Orange Coun­ty Reg­is­ter, Dec. 21, 1987; Wash­ing­ton Post, Oct. 15, 1989.)

Viguerie, who helped raise mon­ey for the New Right in the 1970s and 1980s, sur­vived finan­cial­ly thanks to Moon. Par­ry writes that when Oliv­er North ran for the Sen­ate in Vir­ginia in 1994, “his prin­ci­pal direct-mail con­trac­tor was Viguerie’s com­pa­ny, accord­ing to Fed­er­al Elec­tion Com­mis­sion records.”

Mod­er­ate Repub­li­cans have com­plained about the Repub­li­can-Moon alliance. For exam­ple, accord­ing to Par­ry, in 1983, Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Jim Leach of Iowa said the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church has “infil­trat­ed the New Right and the par­ty it [the New Right] wants to con­trol, the Repub­li­can Par­ty, and infil­trat­ed the media as well.”

Leach, then-chair­man of the GOP’s mod­er­ate Ripon Soci­ety, said the New Right had entered “an alliance of expe­di­en­cy” with Moon’s church. Par­ry reports that Leach “released a study which alleged that the Col­lege Repub­li­can Nation­al Com­mit­tee ‘solicit­ed and received’ mon­ey from Moon’s Uni­fi­ca­tion Church in 1981.”

In order to gain pow­er, Moon has also aligned him­self with orga­ni­za­tions fur­ther to the right than the New Right Repub­li­cans, among them the World Anti-Com­mu­nist League (WACL). The WACL, accord­ing to Fred­er­ick Clark­son, is “an inter­na­tion­al alliance of con­ser­v­a­tive, fas­cist and Nazi groups, gov­ern­ments and indi­vid­u­als.”

The head of the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church in Japan was a mem­ber of the WACL board of direc­tors. Clark­son says “the Japan­ese sec­tion of WACL, Shokyo Ren­go, was found­ed in 1968 as an alliance between top Uni­fi­ca­tion Church offi­cials and lead­ers of the Yakuza (Japan­ese orga­nized crime), notably Yoshio Kodama.”

Clark­son writes that “under the lead­er­ship of retired U. S. Army Gen­er­al John K. Singlaub,” WACL helped pro­vide mon­ey and weapons to the Nicaraguan Con­tras “par­tic­u­lar­ly after Con­gress cut off CIA-chan­neled fund­ing to the Con­tras in 1984.” Moon’s front group CAUSA was one of the first groups to give the Con­tras “human­i­tar­i­an aid.” (Clark­son’s source: Jon Lee Ander­son and Scott Ander­son, “Inside the League: The Shock­ing Expose of How Ter­ror­ists, Nazis and Latin Amer­i­can Death Squads have Infil­trat­ed the World Anti-Com­mu­nist League,” Dodd, Mead and Com­pa­ny, 1986.)

Clark­son says that in a Novem­ber 15, 1979, press state­ment, for­mer WACL youth leader Allen Tate Wood said that before the scan­dal inves­ti­gat­ed by the Fras­er com­mit­tee broke, Moon ordered him to “win the pow­er cen­ters” of the U. S. for him, start­ing with acad­e­mia.

In the press state­ment, Wood also said Moon told him “part of our strat­e­gy in the U. S. must be to make friends in the FBI, the CIA and police forces, the mil­i­tary and busi­ness com­mu­ni­ty . . . as a means of enter­ing the polit­i­cal are­na, influ­enc­ing for­eign pol­i­cy, and ulti­mate­ly estab­lish­ing absolute domin­ion over the Amer­i­can peo­ple.”

Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Don­ald Fras­er said that when mem­bers of Moon’s orga­ni­za­tion object­ed to his polit­i­cal aims, “They were told it was Mas­ter’s expressed desire to begin polit­i­cal work in the Unit­ed States. There­after a mem­ber’s objec­tion to polit­i­cal activ­i­ties was con­sid­ered infi­deli­ty to Mas­ter and was like being dis­obe­di­ent to God.” (Fras­er Report, p. 320.)

Fras­er com­mit­tee staff direc­tor Robert Boettch­er writes about Moon’s his­to­ry. In his ear­ly climb to pow­er, says Boettch­er, Moon want­ed to have loy­al cultists inside the Kore­an gov­ern­ment, where “they could sway pow­er­ful per­sons and become influ­en­tial them­selves.” Moon want­ed his fol­low­ers to por­tray the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church as a “use­ful polit­i­cal tool for the gov­ern­ment” while hid­ing Moon’s pow­er goals.

Moon’s ear­ly fol­low­ers includ­ed army offi­cers close to Kim Jon Pil, the found­ing direc­tor of the Kore­an CIA. Kim Jong Pil knew that Moon had ambi­tions to build influ­ence in Korea and in oth­er coun­tries. He gave Moon slack, because he decid­ed Moon might be of use to the Kore­an gov­ern­ment.

One ear­ly Moon fol­low­er, Bo Hi Pak, was assigned to the Embassy in Wash­ing­ton in 1961. Boettch­er says Pak’s home on North Utah Street in Arling­ton, Vir­ginia, was a Moonie recruit­ing cen­ter. Pak estab­lished the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church in Vir­ginia in 1963.

Pak cul­ti­vat­ed the friend­ship of an air­line pilot, Robert Roland, and his wife, but did not tell them of his asso­ci­a­tion with Moon. Boettch­er learned that when Roland asked about Pak’s duties as assis­tant mil­i­tary attache, Pak said he “was respon­si­ble for liai­son between South Kore­ans and Amer­i­can intel­li­gence agen­cies, which often required his vis­it­ing the super-secret Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Agency (NSA) locat­ed at Fort Meade, Mary­land.”

Roland said that after din­ner one evening, Pak revealed “step by step how the des­tiny of mankind was in the hands of a Kore­an named Moon.” When Roland asked what his aim was in Wash­ing­ton, Pak said, “I must lay a firm foun­da­tion for Mas­ter by mak­ing influ­en­tial polit­i­cal and social con­tacts.”

In 1964, Bo Hi Pak came up with an idea to cre­ate a Moon Amer­i­can-based foun­da­tion. Accord­ing to Boettch­er, Pak want­ed the foun­da­tion to hide its iden­ti­fca­tion with the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church, while encour­ag­ing Amer­i­cans to con­tribute mon­ey.

“Unknow­ing­ly they would be serv­ing Moon,” says Boettch­er, “but in the long run [accord­ing to Pak’s plan] they would be reward­ed by Moon’s estab­lish­ing the King­dom of Heav­en on earth.” The foun­da­tion con­ceived by Pak was giv­en the name the Kore­an Cul­tur­al and Free­dom Foun­da­tion (KCFF).

The KCFF hid its affil­i­a­tion with Moon, as planned. The mon­ey the foun­da­tion raised helped increase Moon’s pow­er in Amer­i­ca. Bo Hi Pak, through a friend, per­suad­ed retired Admi­ral Arleigh Burke to become pres­i­dent of the KCFF.

In order to cre­ate the illu­sion of respectabil­i­ty for the KCFF, Pak includ­ed Burke’s name on the foun­da­tion’s let­ter­head. The KCFF let­ter­head includ­ed oth­er impres­sive names, such as for­mer Pres­i­dents Tru­man and Eisen­how­er as hon­orary pres­i­dents; and as “direc­tors and advis­ers”: Richard Nixon, George Meany, Per­le Mes­ta, Sen­a­tor Hugh Scott, Sen­a­tor Homer Cape­hart, Gen­er­al Matthew Ridg­way, and Con­gress­man Clement Zabloc­ki.

Burke resigned his KCFF posi­tion in 1965, after Robert Roland sent him infor­ma­tion about Moon’s rela­tion­ship with Pak. Burke also dis­trust­ed Pak’s sto­ries about where the KCF­F’s mon­ey was going, but Pak con­tin­ued to use Burke’s name in lob­by­ing for the foun­da­tion.

Moon found­ed a front group, the Lit­tle Angels, in 1962. The Lit­tle Angels were a troupe of young girls who opened polit­i­cal doors by trav­el­ing as ambas­sadors of good will for Moon, per­form­ing tra­di­tion­al Kore­an songs and dances.

Moon seized every chance to be pho­tographed with influ­en­tial peo­ple. In 1965, Bo Hi Pak arranged for him to meet Dwight D. Eisen­how­er at a Get­tys­burg pho­to-op. Boettch­er says Moon com­ment­ed that the meet­ing with Eisen­how­er opened doors “to fur­ther recog­ni­tion by nation­al and inter­na­tion­al lead­ers.”

Moon brought the Lit­tle Angels along to “charm the Eisen­how­ers.” On oth­er occa­sions, the girls’ troupe also per­formed for Queen Eliz­a­beth, and at a Unit­ed Nations per­for­mance attend­ed by New York Gov­er­nor Nel­son Rock­e­feller and Sec­re­tary Gen­er­al Kurt Wald­heim.

Moon’s decades of court­ing influ­en­tial Amer­i­can lead­ers in order to gain polit­i­cal pow­er in this coun­try have been fruit­ful. Reporter Joe Cona­son said that at a Wash­ing­ton gath­er­ing cel­e­brat­ing the George W. Bush inau­gu­ra­tion, at a “prayer lun­cheon” held in the Hyatt hotel ball­room on Capi­tol Hill on 1/19/01, Moon received an award for his “work in sup­port of tra­di­tion­al fam­i­ly val­ues.” The fea­tured speak­er was John Ashcroft. (Cona­son, The New York Observ­er, Feb­ru­ary 12, 2001.)

Tues­day (2/20/01), a C‑Span mod­er­a­tor said Rev. Moon plans to pro­mote his absti­nence pro­gram in schools with the help of George W. Bush’s Faith-Based Ini­tia­tive pro­gram. How might that work? Fred­er­ick Clark­son points out that Moon has been try­ing to get his ten­ta­cles into U. S. schools to pro­mote his rightwing views for many years.

The World Med­ical Health Foun­da­tion (WMHF) is Moon Front group. WMHF chief, Dr. William Bergman, once-direc­tor of Moon’s Uni­fi­ca­tion church, pro­duced a slide pro­gram for schools called “The Pri­vate Plague: AIDS, Sex­u­al­ly Trans­mit­ted Dis­eases & a Strat­e­gy for our Youth at Risk.” Bergman’s pro­gram teach­es that these dis­eases have roots in the “civ­il rights move­ment” which alleged­ly led to “moral rel­a­tivism.” (Clark­son’s source: The Pri­vate Plague slide pro­gram man­u­al, p. 23.)

Will Bush’s Faith-Based Ini­tia­tive pro­gram assist Moon in his efforts to teach your chil­dren that the civ­il rights move­ment led to moral rel­a­tivism, which then led to sex­u­al­ly trans­mit­ted dis­eases?

Some Repub­li­cans have accept­ed Moon as part of their “fam­i­ly val­ues” move­ment. For the Reli­gious Right, the fam­i­ly val­ues issue means sup­port for the tra­di­tion­al nuclear fam­i­ly. How­ev­er, Moon teach­es recruits to aban­don their bio­log­i­cal fam­i­lies and to accept Moon and his wife as their “True Par­ents” and the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church as their “True Fam­i­ly.”

Clark­son writes that a 1994 con­gres­sion­al res­o­lu­tion spon­sored by Rep. Dan Bur­ton (R‑IN), Sen­a­tor Trent Lott (R‑MI), and Sen­a­tor Orrin Hatch (R‑UT) sup­port­ing Par­ents Day turned out to be a Moon ini­ti­at­ed effort “in which the ‘True Par­ents; behind the res­o­lu­tion were qui­et­ly cel­e­brat­ed,” a fact pos­si­bly hid­den from the con­gress­men. (Clark­son’s source: Lisa Gray, “Hon­or Thy Par­ents,” Wash­ing­ton City Paper, Sep­tem­ber, 1995; and Robert Boston, “Unholy Mat­ri­mo­ny,” Church and State, Octo­ber, 1996.)

Moon claims, says Clark­son, that he and his wife “are the True Par­ents of all human­i­ty . . . we are the Sav­ior, the Lord of the Sec­ond Advent, the Mes­si­ah.” (Sun Myung Moon, “Lead­ers Build­ing World Peace,” Uni­fi­ca­tion News, Sep­tem­ber, 1992.)

Clark­son says Moon has often used George H. W. Bush and Bar­bara Bush as a “warm-up act” at his “fam­i­ly val­ues” ral­lies. When Bush gave a series of speech­es at events spon­sored by Moon’s wife’s orga­ni­za­tion, the World Fed­er­a­tion for World Peace (WFWP), he claimed he did not know Moon was involved. Instead, Bush praised the WFWP for its “great empha­sis on fam­i­ly.”

Bush also said, “Until I see some­thing about the Wom­en’s Fed­er­a­tion that trou­bles me, I will con­tin
ue to encour­age them.” (Clark­son’s sources: Peter McGill et al, “Ed Schrey­er and the Moonies, Maclean’s, Octo­ber 23, 1995; Andrew Pol­lock, “Bush Host in Japan Tied to Rev. Moon,” The New York Times, Sep­tem­ber 4, 1995.)

Here are a few items that might dis­cour­age Bush from sup­port­ing Moon’s kind of fam­i­ly val­ues. Robert Boettcher’s inves­ti­ga­tion for the Fras­er com­mit­tee revealed that Moon teach­es recruits that Satan works through their bio­log­i­cal par­ents, and that they must accept their True Par­ents, Rev. Moon and his wife, and reject their “flesh” par­ents.

A cen­tral tenet taught to Moon recruits is “Heav­en­ly Decep­tion.” Recruits, says Botettch­er, are told the “non-Moon world is evil. It must be lied to so it can help Moon take over. Then it can become good under Moon’s con­trol.” Accord­ing to Boettch­er, “Moon teach­es that lying is nec­es­sary when one is doing God’s work, whether sell­ing flow­ers in the street or tes­ti­fy­ing under oath.”

Boettch­er reports that an aspect of anoth­er Moon tenet, the Divine Prin­ci­ple, is the idea that Jesus’ love was weak and that he failed as a leader, because he was unable to moti­vate his dis­ci­ples to kill for him or to die in his place. Moon claims he is tak­ing up where Jesus left off, and, says Boettch­er, Moon “sees Chris­t­ian church­es as fur­ther­ing Satan’s cause by reject­ing him [Moon].”

The Fras­er Report of Octo­ber 31,1978, revealed that Moon had been involved in law­break­ing in addi­tion to express­ing anti-Amer­i­can sen­ti­ments and using ques­tion­able recruit­ing and indoc­tri­na­tion prac­tices. Boettch­er writes that Fras­er found Moon vio­lat­ed laws on “bank­ing, immi­gra­tion, tax­es, cur­ren­cy con­trol, char­i­ty fraud, arms export con­trol, and for­eign agents reg­is­tra­tion.” How­ev­er, accord­ing to Boettch­er, Moon thinks his reli­gious beliefs enti­tle him to break the law.

Fred­er­ick Clark­son points out that the Wash­ing­ton Post has report­ed that Moon has been the sub­ject of over 300 law­suits in Japan, rang­ing from for­mer Moonies claim­ing “they were brain­washed into slave-like devo­tion,” to mem­bers say­ing they were “duped into pay­ing exor­bi­tant prices for vas­es, prayer beads or oth­er reli­gious objects.” (Kevin Sul­li­van and Mary Jor­dan, “Once-Gen­er­ous Japan­ese Become Dis­en­chant­ed with Moon’s Church,” the Wash­ing­ton Post, August 4, 1996.)

News­pa­pers have done a rea­son­ably good job inves­ti­gat­ing Moon’s dark side, but tele­vi­sion news has blacked out the sto­ry. Because most Amer­i­cans get their news from tele­vi­sion, most peo­ple do not know the nature of Moon’s polit­i­cal work in the U. S. or the extent of his involve­ment with the Bush fam­i­ly.

On the rare occa­sion Moon is men­tioned on tele­vi­sion news pro­grams, the focus is on super­fi­cial­i­ties, such as Moon’s mass wed­dings. Fox Net­work’s Paula Zahn once inter­viewed a Moon sup­port­er who said the mass wed­dings were not coerced. At the inter­view’s end, Zahn thanked the Moon apol­o­gist for “set­ting the record straight.”

The Moon sto­ry is about more than a mega­lo­ma­ni­a­cal tyrant and his iso­lat­ed fol­low­ers. It is also about the fact that since George W. Bush took pow­er, Moon ben­e­fits from Bush’s Faith-Based Ini­tia­tives pro­gram. Moon also gains pres­tige and polit­i­cal influ­ence when he is hon­ored by Bush sup­port­ers, such as John Ashcroft and oth­ers who attend­ed the Jan­u­ary 19 “prayer lun­cheon.”

Thanks to the Bush fam­i­ly and their imposed “dynasty,” today Moon has more pow­er to under­mine Amer­i­can democ­ra­cy and indi­vid­u­al­ism. He has more pow­er to work to “sub­ju­gate the Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment and pop­u­la­tion.” He has more pow­er to try to make “his ene­mies, the Amer­i­can peo­ple and gov­ern­ment bow down before him.”

Thanks to his asso­ci­a­tion with Bush, Moon now has more pow­er to encour­age “peo­ple here in Amer­i­ca rec­og­nize the abil­i­ty and pow­er of Rev­erend Moon.” He has more pow­er to con­vince peo­ple that “the coun­try that rep­re­sents Satan’s har­vest is Amer­i­ca.” He has more pow­er to lure recruits and have them “trained in total­ism” and to “instill dis­ci­pline” by show­ing his train­ers “Nazi films on orga­niz­ing Hitler Youth.”

Moon has been able to infil­trate and gain a pow­er base in the U. S. pri­mar­i­ly because of one thing: secre­cy. His his­to­ry includes hid­ing his real inten­tions behind front groups and decep­tive “adver­tis­ing,” whether hawk­ing for dona­tions, lur­ing unsus­pect­ing recruits or cur­ry­ing favor with politi­cians. The sto­ry of Moon and his sup­port by the Bush fam­i­ly would be com­mon knowl­edge among all Amer­i­cans if the TV news media would sim­ply report the facts.

If every­one read­ing this arti­cle would write and call TV net­works, news­pa­pers and mem­bers of Con­gress today, ask­ing for a probe into Moon and his influ­ence on the Bush fam­i­ly and cer­tain Repub­li­can Par­ty mem­bers, maybe col­lec­tive­ly we would touch a nation­al nerve. Sure­ly not every TV jour­nal­ist and mem­ber of Con­gress is too cow­ard­ly to touch this sto­ry.
