C. Clark Kissinger

Born in 1940, Charles Clark Kissinger is a devoted Maoist and a prominent member of the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP).

In 1960, at the University of Wisconsin, Kissinger served as chairman of the Wisconsin Socialist Club and also became an active supporter of the nascent Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. In 1962 he joined the radical Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and in 1964-65 he served as SDS's national secretary. Kissinger also worked closely with the Black Panther Party (BPP) in Chicago during the 1960s and in particular with Fred Hampton, the leader of BPP’s Illinois chapter.

In 1965 Kissinger organized the first March on Washington to End the War in Vietnam. In the mid-’60s as well, he defiantly mailed his military draft card to the National Liberation Front, a political organization that the Communist Vietcong had formed in an effort to effect the overthrow of South Vietnam’s government. When he was nonetheless ordered to report for military service in 1967, Kissinger responded by accepting what he called "the invitation to do anti-war organizing among GIs at government expense." Soon after arriving at the induction center, he stood on a table and bellowed anti-war speeches to his fellow Army inductees, at which point he was promptly thrown out of the facility.

Kissinger has been at the front of anti-American propaganda, actions and riots for 60 years. Today he is the manager of Revolution Books, a New York City store that markets a wide array of publications rooted in "the new synthesis of communism brought forward by Bob Avakian," chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP). Kissinger has also been a contributing writer for the RCP newspaper/website, Revolution.
