Wisconsin’s brand new Senator Tammy Baldwin, has been a long time supporter of a Madison based network, which works in support of an ultra-violent Latin American Marxist/terrorist insurgency.
In November 2012, the Colombia Support Network congratulated Tammy Baldwin on her election to the US Senate with a statement that read:
Colombia Support Network (CSN) celebrates the election last night of two great friends: Tammy Baldwin, elected to the United States Senate, and Mark Pocan, elected to the United States House of Representatives.
Tammy, with the assistance of Mark, drafted our sister community resolution for Dane County and Apartadó…
Tammy and Mark have provided great support to our human rights and sister community work on Colombia. We look forward to their solidarity from their new positions as Senator and Representative in Washington D.C. We congratulate them on their election and on their commitment to good government and support for a sensible U.S. foreign policy toward Colombia.
In 1996, the Network sent an open letter to the Colombian government: “Stop the Bloodshed in Uraba, Due Process for Jose Antonio Lopez, Nelson Campo and others, and an End to Faceless Justice and Political Repression…” The letter criticized the local anti-communist paramilitary forces, but gave no rebuke to the murderous communist insurgency.
Jose Antonio Lopez and Nelson Campo were being detained at the time over suspicion of complicity in the cold-blooded murder of 37 people by FARC guerrilla forces in the squatters barrio of Aparto, La Chinata:
We, the undersigned, are North Americans and others who are deeply disturbed by the human rights situation in Colombia. Massacres, disappearances and torture happen continually in the anguished region of Uraba. We cannot understand how paramilitary groups operate so freely in this militarized region where the Colombian army is present in massive numbers, and which does not perform its constitutional function of defending the civilian population. And we cannot understand why the regional paramilitary leader is not apprehended and brought to justice for his crimes against humanity…
Tammy Baldwin signed the letter, as did several well-known radicals, including Democratic Socialists of America supporters Ed Asner, Blasé Bonpane and Noam Chomsky; Communist Party USA supporters Gary Grass, Babette Grunow, Michael Parenti, Fr. Bill Hogan and Clarence Kaillin and former Weather Underground terrorist leader Bernardine Dohrn.
Tammy Baldwin visited Colombia with a CSN delegation in 1993 and has worked in support of the cause ever since.
She actively lobbied former Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold on behalf of the CSN and used her vote in the House of Representatives to oppose US military aid to the Colombian government’s anti-guerilla war effort.
In September 2009, Rep. Tammy Baldwin circulated a ‘Dear Colleague’ letter, which urged members of Congress to sign a letter to President Obama, expressing “concern and caution” over a US military base agreement with Colombia.
To learn more about Tammy Baldwin and her extensive hard left connections, read Trevor Loudon’s new book The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress.
