VIDEO: Chicago Commies in Wisconsin

Thanks to Maggie’s Notebook for this video from the MacIver Institute showing Chicago-based members of the Revolutionary Communist Party arriving in Madison to distribute their propaganda at the protests:

Bob Avakian’s RCP is the leading Maoist group in the U.S. RCP spinoffs include Refuse & Resist and Not in Our Name, which were important presences in the Bush-era anti-war protests.

One of my pet peeves about mainstream media coverage of those protests was how they blithely ignored the involvement of Marxist organizations, including International A.N.S.W.E.R., a front for the Workers World Party, a bizarre Trotskyite splinter group.

Every time there was a major left-wing protest in D.C., these commie groups would be out in force, and the media never reported it, whereas any time there’s a Tea Party event nowadays, the media squawk “Koch money! Koch money!” like a fucking parrot.

Speaking of which, what the hell is going on at Forbes? Why are they publishing Rick Ungar, who disgraced himself with his idiotic “Send the Body to Glenn Beck” screed in the case of the Kentucky census worker who, as it turned out, had committed suicide?
