Friday Oct 5th, 2012 8:14 PM
For a second day in a row this Columbus Genocide Fleet Week, on Oct 5, 2012, from 1:46 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., shortened from the usual 4 hours by the thick clouds, the Navy's Blue Death strafed San Francisco with its illegal air show over heavily populated San Francisco, wasting tax dollars and oil, causing pollution and horrifying, deafening noise. Major peace and anti-Columbus Genocide demonstrations are planned in the San Francisco Bay Area 10/6-7/12.
For a second day in a row this Columbus Genocide Fleet Week, on Oct. 5, 2012, from 1:46 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., shortened from the usual 4 hours by the thick clouds, the Navy's Blue Death strafed San Francisco with its illegal air show over heavily populated San Francisco, wasting tax dollars and oil, causing pollution and horrifying, deafening noise. Major peace and anti-Columbus Genocide demonstrations are planned in the San Francisco Bay Area 10/6-7/12.

You can read all about these demonstrations on this website at: and

Two of them are also covered in the article below: the ANSWER peace and labor demonstration on October 6, 2012 and the Native Americans' Retire Columbus demonstration on October 7, 2012, both in San Francisco. WE EXPECT KPFA, 94.1 FM, TO REPORT ON ALL THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA PEACE AND ANTI-COLUMBUS GENOCIDE DEMONSTRATIONS as that is what we, the KPFA subscribers, pay for so that the world learns that there are Americans for peace and opposed to the genocide and racism that has been perpetrated by the capitalist class, all to maximize profits, as is their promotion of war. Only a strong labor movement capable of carrying out a general strike can put an end to the profit motive, which is why connecting the peace movement to the labor movement is so important.

The Navy’s Blue Death flights criss-cross the City for 4 days, strafing the 856,000 residents and all of the hospitals and convalescent centers of San Francisco including Chinese Hospital, St. Francis Hospital, Kaiser Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital, UCSF Medical Center, Mt. Zion Hospital, California Pacific Medical Center, Davies Hospital, St. Luke’s Hospital, Veterans Hospital, San Francisco General Hospital and San Francisco Laguna Honda Rehabilitation Center.

These terrorists flights are perpetrated by the same military that carried out the 9/11 Inside Job at the behest of the ruling class and its spokespeople, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice and Giuliani. More information on the 9/11 Inside Job, made obvious as it happened as there was no air defense, and if you need more, the controlled demolition of the Twin Towers and Building 7, is at the end of this article. The Navy’s Blue Death terrorizes San Francisco with its illegal low flights over heavily populated San Francisco making a deafening ear-splitting noise and polluting our air for this despicable military recruiting show.

A soldier by definition around the world is a paid professional killer. The reason the military teaches a soldier to use a gun is so that they kill their fellow workers to make the capitalist class richer. When there was a draft, those who did not want to kill anyone obtained some kind of deferment such as a student deferment, physical or mental deferment, political deferment or they went to jail by the thousands, and that includes the workingclass. If you do not like the low wages you receive, then do labor organizing. It was done in the Great Depression of the 1930s and it must be done in this 21st Century Great Depression. We say, DON’T FIGHT THE BOSSES’ WAR; FIGHT THE BOSSES HERE AT HOME AND ORGANIZE LABOR! The only way we can put an end to war is to organize a labor movement strong enough to carry out a general strike to take state power to end the private profit system, the cause of all wars.

THE MILITARY DOES NOT EXIST TO ENTERTAIN ANYONE; it exists to maximize the profits of the capitalist class. This military recruiting show is a criminal waste of our tax dollars and oil; the noise is so loud that when we walk on the sidewalks, rest in our homes or convalesce in our hospitals, we cannot hear ourselves think or talk; and these air shows are notorious for deadly plane crashes, which is why it is illegal to fly air shows over heavily populated areas. They also cause terrible pollution, spewing 24,000 gallons of carbon into our air. For more, see (Trail of Waste Letter by Martin Gellen)

The latest of many deadly crashes of these Hornet Jets used by the Navy’s Blue Death may be found at: ‘Marine jet hits houses - 3 killed, one missing,’ by Elliot Spagat, Associated Press, Tuesday, December 9, 2008, Here is the April 22, 2007 story of a Navy’s Blue Death crash: in Beaufort, South Carolina, the April 24, 2007 story at and the Associated Press story which includes the statement: “The official site for the Blue Angels defines the mission as one "to enhance Navy and Marine Corps recruiting efforts..”

Air shows are very dangerous. On September 15, 2011, a plane crashed into a crowd watching an air show in Reno, killing 10 people. See and
This was the latest in 4 air show crashes in 4 months. See Here is a video and article on a September 2, 2012 air show crash:
For more air show accidents, see
For more accidents by the Navy’s Blue Death, see “Accidents” at

These are horrifying death machines, the Blue Angels F/A18 Hornet at and
COSTING THE TAXPAYERS $29 MILLION TO $59 MILLION EACH, are 56 feet long, 15.3 feet tall, with wingspan of 40.4 feet with missiles and wing area of 400 square feet (See Specifications). The history and armaments of these death machines with pictures may be found at At you will see the announcement with excellent photo of one of these murder machines that this is indeed a recruiting tool, on paragraph 2, from the Department of Defense April 30, 2002 Press Release, “THE MISSION OF THE BLUE ANGELS IS TO ENHANCE NAVY AND MARINE CORPS RECRUITING…”
See also, Question 1: “What is the mission of the Blue Angels?” and the answer given is: “The mission of the Blue Angels is to enhance Navy recruiting…”

The claim that this military recruiting show brings its blood money to San Francisco is insulting and a lie. The money spent on the military would pay for all our needs many times over. It is the progressive income tax of the state and federal governments, better known as tax the rich, those making over $200,000 a year, that should and must pay for all our social service needs.
For more on how your tax dollars are spent, mostly on war, see the War Resisters League pie chart at: and
The federal budget for Fiscal Year 2012 is $2,847 billion. The war budget is 48% not including the Social Security Trust Fund which is currently being robbed by Democrat Obama, just like the Republicans, to pay for his illegal blood for oil wars, AND THE MILITARY IS BY DEFINITION A COMPLETE WASTE OF OUR TAX DOLLARS AS THE MILITARY ONLY EXISTS TO MAXIMIZE THE PROFITS OF THE CAPITALIST CLASS.

This outrage has been perpetrated by the San Francisco Democratic Party machine since 1981, with the staunch support of every mayor, all Democrats, starting with then mayor Dianne Feinstein, a war profiteer. See

You can and should call all 11 members of the Board of Supervisors as they fly low overhead so that the mayor and the Board can hear the terrible noise inside your home. Call the mayor and the Board and from inside your home if you can as these terrorists fly overhead, with the windows open. They all have voice mail so you can leave a message at any time. There are 856,000 people in San Francisco, of whom 18% are children. If just 10,000 people call, the Board of Supervisors will have no choice but to act to stop the Navy’s Blue Death. We ought to be able to get more than 10,000 people to call to save our homes, our hearing and our sanity from this horrifying, noisy, polluting military recruiting show flying illegally low over our homes. Public sentiment petitions to end this nightmare that have circulated over the years easily obtain signatures from everyone over age 40 and all educated people under age 40, the regular voting population.

You can be a peace propaganda person with this show by simply pointing to these terrorist death machines as you walk and tell all around you THAT’S WHY WE ARE SO POOR; WE CAN’T HAVE GUNS AND BUTTER. The average person is not smiling when these terrorists strafe our city but does not understand the full horror of what we are suffering, and as we all know, the average American does not think about politics. We can use this illegal strafing of our city to teach peace, to teach basic economics that we cannot support a war machine while we have no healthcare system, a declining education system, no affordable housing, no decent transportation system nationwide, no pensions, no jobs and no future. THIS IS AN EXCELLENT PEACE TEACHING TOOL AND IT MUST BE DONE. As Joe Hill the labor organizer said, Don’t mourn for me, organize! WE MUST ORGANIZE AMERICANS TO PUT AN END TO THE WAR MACHINE. When you see the soldiers and sailors walking around town in uniform, men and women, you tell them DON’T FIGHT THE BOSSES WARS; FIGHT THE BOSSES HERE AT HOME; ORGANIZE LABOR; ABOLISH THE MILITARY; NO BLOOD FOR OIL.

The Board of Education, all Democrats, reinstated JROTC, the military recruiting program in San Francisco’s public high schools. Superintendent Carlos Garcia, a Democrat, is doing his best to save JROTC. See “Superintendent Garcia Gives JROTC a Helping Hand” by Marc Norton‚ Oct. 5‚ 2009:
There is a coalition now formed to get rid of JROTC in SF. See the Military Out of Our Schools website at
While the military can use our public schools, the public schools do not have enough textbooks. See Letters to the Editor, SF Chronicle, 10/8/09 at
It is long overdue that the military be banned from our schools.

6. OPPOSE NUCLEAR POWER, NUCLEAR WEAPONS AND FOSSIL FUEL POWER; SUPPORT SOLAR, WIND AND TIDAL POWER. We now have the means to replace fossil fuels with solar, wind and tidal power. See

Capitalism’s primary law and goal is maximization of profits and there are no greater profits than in the war machine, both in munitions and in the oil that the oil consuming war machine steals from the people of the world, currently from Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan (the Caspian Sea oil pipeline) and soon Iran. The 9/11 Inside Job was the American Reichstag Fire to promote war and fascism so as to maximize the profits of the capitalist class, the same reason for the Nazis’ Reichstag Fire. NO AIR DEFENSE means it was an inside job, and if you need more, CONTROLLED DEMOLITION of the Twin Towers and Building 7, which Building 7 was not hit by a plane, are further evidence of an inside job, all perpetrated by the US military with the planes under remote control guided by the military; there were no hijackers on those planes and 9 of the so-called hijackers were alive on 9/12/01. One demolition substance used was nanothermite, only used by the military. Bombs were exploding in the many basements of the buildings that were demolished. The buildings were shut down many times before 9/11/01, including the weekend before, clearly to plant the bombs and demolition explosives. The entire World Trade Center was run by a security outfit led by Marvin Bush, a brother of the then president, and Wirt Walker, III, a cousin of same. The Pentagon was hit by construction explosives on the side that was under construction that housed bookkeepers about to reveal the till-tapping, as well as by either a small military plane or a military missile. The hole in the ground in Pennsylvania had no bodies, said the coroner; the plane that supposedly crashed there landed at the Cleveland airport. The CIA doubles were incompetent pilots and drunken womanizers, clearly not religious, and obviously not capable of the extraordinary maneuver over the Pentagon or flying huge heavy planes, which planes were at least half empty, and thus their flights would normally have been cancelled as being not profitable. There is much more evidence that 9/11 was an Inside Job, all perpetrated by the US ruling class and carried out by the US military under the direction of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice and Giuliani. We must always ask, WHO BENEFITS? Only the US capitalist class had the MOTIVE, MEANS AND OPPORTUNITY to carry out this heinous crime and only the US capitalist class benefited from the 9/11 Inside Job.

The Blue Angels were not strafing the city. To do so they would have been firing their guns. They did not do that. Maybe you should look up that word in a dictionary.

Also, the air show was not illegal. Look up the regulations and you'll see they aren't.

You recycle this same article every year.

They do everything but actually fire at us. IT IS ALWAYS ILLEGAL TO HAVE AN AIR SHOW OVER A CITY AND FOR ANY PLANE, EXCEPT A HELICOPTER, TO FLY LOW OVER A CITY. That is just common sense. For everyone who is in the Northeast sector, including in the Financial District, right this minute, at 4:06 p.m., we are being bombarded with very low flying murder planes, commonly known as the Navy's Blue Death, as they leave the Bay, which we can hear inside our homes whether it be on the ground floor or the top floor, with the windows closed. We were strafed from 12 Noon until 1:30 p.m. and in Chinatown all afternoon, and now, as this profound waste of our tax dollars and massive pollution of our air is about to end, we are being strafed again. They could and should leave the Bay by way of the Pacific Ocean, to go to whatever air field they use, probably Travis Air Force Base, near Sacramento. Flying over a densely packed City with 856,000 people in 49 square miles, lots of hospitals and convalescent centers, and about 1 million tourists in the daytime, is ILLEGAL AND DEADLY. This article is not recycled; it is carefully written and updated to teach peace to the American taxpayers, of whom I am one. IT IS OBVIOUSLY NECESSARY AS THIS OUTRAGE CONTINUES TO EXIST. This writer can easily remember when this outrage did not exist and we could enjoy our beautiful sunny warm crispy clear October weather. I did not do 4 days of this article because I am getting a little old. Here are my Sunday paragraphs which I had prepared:

We cannot use our public beach at Aquatic Park during Columbus Genocide weekend as it is taken over by a radio station broadcasting this horror show loudly, and the people watching these murder machines are clearly not interested in enjoying the beach at all.

The ships for “Fleet Week” come from San Diego and Hawaii as our peace movement got rid of Fort Mason in San Francisco by 1970, Fort Barry’s Nike missile site in 1974 on the North Side of the Golden Gate Bridge, Fort Cronkhite, bordering Fort Barry, in the 1970s, Hamilton Air Force near Novato in 1976, the Air Force Station on Mt. Tamalpais in the 1980s, Fort Baker near Sausalito in the mid-1990s, Moffitt Air Field near Sunnyvale in 1994, the Presidio of San Francisco in 1994, the Navy bases in Vallejo and Alameda in 1996 and 1997 respectively, the Oakland Army Base in 1999 and the Inland section of the Concord Naval Weapons Station in 2007.

WE ALSO KICKED THE COLUMBUS GENOCIDE PARADE OFF MARKET STREET AND SENT IT TO FISHERMAN'S WHARF IN 1992, the 500th year since the arrival of Columbus in the Americas. Native Americans and all their supporters protested so loudly at City Hall that this travesty is now not allowed on San Francisco's main parade street, Market Street, and instead straggles through the crowded tourist area known as Fisherman's Wharf. This parade was renamed Italian-American Heritage Parade, although it has nothing to do with the Italian culture we all love, namely the opera, the paintings of Leonardo Da Vinci, Italian food and wine and all other worthwhile contributions of the Italian people to humanity. Most of the parade is a military show consisting of JROTC and ROTC groups, which is why it is also important to abolish JROTC and ROTC.
