Marching With Stalinists
I’m hard on the Washington Post, and most of the time they deserve it. But today Michael Kelly earns a big LGF “Bravo!” for this column telling the truth about the Stalinist group that organized last weekend’s Idiot Marches: Marching With Stalinists.
There is, increasingly, much that happens in the world that the Times feels its readers should be sheltered from knowing. The marches in Washington and San Francisco were chiefly sponsored, as was last October’s antiwar march in Washington, by a group the Times chose to call in its only passing reference “the activist group International Answer.
”International ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) is a front group for the communist Workers World Party. The Workers World Party is, literally, a Stalinist organization. It rose out of a split within the old Socialist Workers Party over the Soviet Union’s 1956 invasion of Hungary — the breakaway Workers World Party was all for the invasion. International ANSWER today unquestioningly supports any despotic regime that lays any claim to socialism, or simply to anti-Americanism. It supported the butchers of Beijing after the slaughter of Tiananmen Square. It supports Saddam Hussein and his Baathist torture-state. It supports the last official Stalinist state, North Korea, in the mass starvation of its citizens. It supported Slobodan Milosevic after the massacre at Srebrenica. It supports the mullahs of Iran, and the narco-gangsters of Colombia and the bus-bombers of Hamas.
This is whom the left now marches with. The left marches with the Stalinists. The left marches with those who would maintain in power the leading oppressors of humanity in the world. It marches with, stands with and cheers on people like the speaker at the Washington rally who declared that “the real terrorists have always been the United Snakes of America.” It marches with people like the former Black Panther Charles Baron, who said in Washington, “if you’re looking for an axis of evil then look in the belly of this beast.
”The Times’ “mainstream” Americans marched last weekend with people who held signs comparing the president and vice president of their country to Hitler, and declaring, “The difference between Bush and Saddam is that Saddam was elected,” and this one: “I want you to die for Israel. Israel sings Onward Christian Soldiers.”
This is information that has been shamefully ignored by most of the Western media. But an even larger and more ominous story is still being ignored; the presence and influence of radical Islamic front groups at these demonstrations.
