Babies are strapped into airplane seats enroute to LAX during “Operation Babylift” with airlifted orphans from Vietnam to the US. April 12, 1975.
This looks dangerous as fuck 😒
ikr? I was thinking how they would not have been secure if the plane crashed only to find out that one of the planes in the operation did crash.
Most of the babies taken to the United States by “Operation Babylift” were not orphans in the first place; they were children from refugee camps who were fraudulently designated as orphans by American relief workers — most of them with religious affiliations — who believed they’d be “better off” being raised by white Americans.
Operation Reunite is an amazing nonprofit run by Babylift victims which seeks to use DNA testing to find and reconnect with their real families back home in Vietnam.
1975 was a fucking banner year in red-baiting. this was one of the goofiest propaganda exercises of all time cause you could portray the north vietnamese as “the red barbarian baby-slaughtering hordes” and then when one of them crashes, you can say “well the plane wouldn’t be up in the sky with babies if the commies weren’t invading”.
13 Cain said to the Lord, “My punishment is more than I can bear.14 Today you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your presence; I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.”
15 But the Lord said to him, “Not so[e]; anyone who kills Cain will suffer vengeance seven times over.” Then the Lordput a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill him.16 So Cain went out from the Lord’s presence and lived in the land of Nod,[f] east of Eden.
