Skip to comments.Was John Brennan's 1976 Communist Party presidential vote a mere protest?

"He was born in North Bergen, New Jersey. He attended the Immaculate Heart of Mary Elementary School, and graduated from Saint Joseph of the Palisades High School in West New York, New Jersey before enrolling at Fordham University in New York City."
"While riding a bus to class at Fordham, he saw an ad in The New York Times that said the CIA was recruiting, and he felt a CIA career would be a good match for his "wanderlust" and his desire to do public service. His studies included a junior year abroad learning Arabic and taking Middle Eastern studies courses at the American University in Cairo."
"In 1976, he voted for Communist Party USA candidate Gus Hall in the presidential election; he later said that he viewed it as a way "of signaling my unhappiness with the system, and the need for change.""
"He received a B.A. in political science from Fordham in 1977."

2) Since Fordham (Bronx, NY) is 13.5 from North Bergen and he 'rode a bus to class at Fordham' we can be certain he lived and voted in NJ in 1976:everipedia.org/wiki/)
If Brennan merely meant his vote as a protest of the two-party system, why didn't he choose any of the other NINE fringe party candidates rather than single out the Communist party of Gus Hall for his approval? Why didn't Jimmy Carter's & Stansfield Turner's CIA ask in 1980? Why has it not been asked of him since?Republican Gerald Ford Democratic Jimmy Carter Independent Eugene McCarthy Libertarian Roger MacBride American Independent Lester Maddox Socialist Labor Julius Levin Communist Gus Hall U.S. Labor Lyndon LaRouche Socialist Workers Peter Camejo People's Margaret Wright Prohibition Ben Bubar Socialist Frank Zeidler
He’s a communist AND a muslim.
Only an ineligible usurper would have chosen him to be CIA Director.
So he was raised and educated as a Catholic, then rejected Christ in favor of Mohammad? Not good.
“Hes a communist AND a muslim.
And a New Jerseyite !
This guy is the absolute worst.
Scumbag traitor from hell
Thats why he was the Marxist obnughole number 1 guy
Hes in need of a jail
Lying scumbag...He voted for Hall because he is a communist...
Like East St. Louis, Illinois.
No, not educated as a Catholic...as a Jesuit.
He was a commie before he went moose limb, as long as it is anti-American Brennan is onboard.
Worse yet than all that is the fact that he voted for a Commie in the YEAR OF THE BICENTENNIAL.
Those of you old enough to remember will recall that 1976 was probably the most patriotic year in terms of the media, movies, TV series (remember The Adamses on PBS?) since WW2.
To have voted to spit on the flag (the equivalent of what Brennan did) in 1976 took a special kind of anti-American bile.
Then he joined the CIA and became a Mohamedan sympathizer.
Nice life. Now he’s insignificant. And LOUDLY so.
It was probably all the intolerably patriotic trappings of the Bicentennial year that drove Brennan to vote as he truly believed. Mere protest? I think not.
Take away the caption, and I’d think this creepy guy was an SS colonel.
As if a Nazi Party vote ever be considered acceptable protest ftom someone seeking to be CIA chief.
Well muslims do like throat slitting, i can see where Brennan found common ground
Notice how commies always come up with excuses when you locate their Party cards???
