Eartha Kitt is well known as a singer, actress and sex kitten from the 60’s and 70’s. Additionally, she played a great cat woman on the original Batman tv series. What you may not know, is that Kitt was a political activist. She understood the predicament of the generation she represented. Kitt worked with underprivileged kids from inner cities.
Plucked for a war that made no sense inspired anger in the youths. Additionally, surviving the daily riots and violence exhibit a small sample of the many manufactured problems the government uses as a distraction. Yes, Kitt understood plainly the troubles in the United States.
This same trouble exists today
Lucky for Kitt, her sultry voice and stage presence gained her international acclaim. In the height of her fame, she received an invitation to a White House luncheon. Lady Bird Johnson, first lady at the time addressed the attendees with a speech about stopping escalating violence from inner city youth. Finally, insisting women can impact gun control and the municipalities within which they live, she had other women there to support her views and her speech.
During the luncheon, Kitt asked about the Vietnam War
Kitt comments, “You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed others rebel in the streets because they don’t want to be snatched away from their families to be shot in Vietnam. ” Kitt’s remarks had the first lady in tears. One can only guess if those were crocodile tears.
Following the conservative event, Kitt was put on a blacklist and investigation and intimidation started by the FBI and CIA. So much rejected in the United States Kitt made her way to Europe where she addressed many in speeches about “After the Fire” of Vietnam. There is a book about it, but not much can be found about her speech.
In 1978, Kitt made a comeback to the US in a broadway musical “Timbuktu”
What is remarkable about Eartha Kitt is her outspokenness. She believed in her country enough to speak the truth about it were corruption and was punished for it. She says “The thing that hurts, that became anger, was when I realized that if you tell the truth in a country that says you’re entitled, to tell the truth, you get your face slapped and you get put out of work.”
Kitt made this statement many years ago
She knew of the hypocrisy that exists in America. She gave voice to it and was shut down. Kitt is not alone.
Many have tried to give voice to the corruption of the CIA and FBI and Congress, House of Representatives, the President and State Departments, the banking system, etc. Every person who tried has been silenced. Sometimes the silencing was through assassination and other times discredit, or in Kitt’s case, expulsion.

The amount of money funneled to this organization to buy off leaders of nations to keep quiet about the US’s hand in chaotic interference and continuation of terror and drug trafficking is insurmountable.
