Last night, with the help of some others on Twitter, I discovered an important story the media have so far missed: one of the main outside groups involved in inciting violence in Ferguson is the notorious Revolutionary Communist Party, a Maoist group started by cultish leader Bob Avakian. One of their slogans is “No solution without violent revolution.”
The RCP is generally despised by liberal community organizers, and well known for showing up at protests such as OWS and doing their best to instigate violent conflicts between police and protesters.
Here are some of the tweets posted on this subject:
Shahid tried to talk to these agitators/instigators earlier. They were trying to provoke a fight with police. https://t.co/Vsc7JNmPWK
