Boo hoo! The confessions of Proyect from is *personal* scrapbook! In fact=20
what he is openly admitting and does not say it was that he was running and=
=20
operation for the reformist SWP and its support of the popular front=20
politics of the liberal bougeoisie! While he and his SWP friends were=20
sucking up to liberal democratic politicians like Mayor Stokes, other people=

same time. But Proyect does not want to talk about the demise of the SWP=20
into the reformist camp around this time.
He is just doing a *personal* nastolgia trip about rainy nights and getting=
=20
some "Elmers glue" on his hands. And them blocks with the bougeois state=20
against other anti-war militants still living in exile!

And here some more whining from the yellow journalist. First he puts words=
=20
in my mouth about stopping the production of Napalm personally. In fact it=
=20
was a concentrated nationwide campaign with many dedicated people involved=
=20
that forced Dow Chemical to back down. Going on to the heart of the matter.=
=20
Proyect the professor feels insulted! that Hans could purpose Malecki as one=
=20
of the moderaters on the new list! So that is what is really bugging the=20
neo-Stalinist, yellow journalist professor! A place in the sun. Another=20
label for his scrapbook! This is so fucking funny. I said in my appeal;

"I  also took responsibility for the destruction of the international=20
computer network of the Dow Chemical Corp. in Washington DC. This=20
company produced napalm and agent orange for the bombs being dropped=20
on Vietnam. Because of this action and OTHERS Dow Chemical stopped=20
its production of napalm".                                                  =
=20
                                                                            =
=20
                          =20
He drags Malecki, Phil Berrigan and many others through the mud accusing=20
them of doing exactly the same thing that the government claims because Hans=
=20
did not offer him the job of moderater! How utterly despicable you are=
 Proyect.

A new left careerist with his scrapbook! Burns people in exile for not=20
getting the job of moderater.

Slander after slander after slander and then some lies to top it off. The=20
New York intellectual having his personal career and scrapbook and along=20
comes this horrible Malecki with a poor and working class background and=20
completely destroys the atomosphere on M1 and more. He is offered a=20

Not satisfied that he was completely exposed about his original accusations=
=20
of Malecki being a cop and agent provacateur in the pay of imperialism. Our=
=20
SWP scrapbook careerist turns to new slander. Accusing (along with the FBI=
=20
and the government) of blowing up buildings! In fact Proyect goes even=20
futher then the government saying that Malecki is the McVeigh of the anti=20
war movement.

In the appeal i wrote it states clearly;

"The funny thing about this is that it never happened! The White=20
House, planes on Guam, electric powerplants, public buildings was=20
a conspiracy according to the government. In reality we were people=20
who had always taken responsibility for our actions."

However the bruised ego of the SWP scrapbook man feeling threatened by=20
Malecki does not care about truth any longer. What is driving him is that=20
Malecki was offered a moderater place by Hans. The biggest insult of all to=
=20
our little careerist Proyect. Christ Hans give him a list this poor sucker=
=20
who lets his personal ego and career
on M1? turn him into a complete madman.=20

No in fact this is wrong. Proyect should be thrown off the lists at=20
Jefferson Village for helping the American Government and FBI in their=20
prosecution of militants from the anti-war movement still living in exile!=
=20
He openly admits that he is going to do this all over the Internet!=20
Naturally in the bottom there is also a good dos of reformist and neo=20
Stalinist politics to back up this sick ego tripped carreerist activities.

>Pretty soon Malecki will be history. I plan to post his Cleveland
>Plain-Dealer article about the dynamite plot ALL OVER THE INTERNET. Watch
>the rat squirm when that happens.

Now, the man is out to personally destroy me. But in fact he is endangering=
=20
a lot of people lives by this kind of activity. However it is interesting=20
that Proyect wants to end his political career in such a despicable way. But=
=20
obviously it is his choice.
I am collecting a lot of information at this point Louis and believe me you=
=20
will only be drawing more shit on your head as you fall into the abyss. I=20
hope that people on M1 realize what Proyect is claiming he will do now! He=
=20
along with the FBI and Government want to confirm that anti war activists=20
were in reality terrorists. Now 25 years later Proyect wants to lead this=20
campaign for the government and the FBI against Malecki ALL OVER THE=
 INTERNET!

How long are the Socialist and communists at Jefferson Village willing to=20
accept this kind of activitivity from Proyect? I demand that everybody take=
=20
a clear position on this new and dangerous cop provacation by Proyect. He is=
=20
OPENLY CLAIMING THAT HE WILL HELP THE COPS AND THE GOVERNMENT BY POSTING=20
THEIR LIES OVER THE INTERNET. Why are the Communists and Socialists on this=
=20
list silent about this!

Goodbye Louis you have completely exposed yourself. Too bad in fact that=20
their are people who would allow you on any list at all after the incredible=
=20
unpincipled and disgusting neo Stalinist yellow journalism. But I am quite=
=20
sure that numerous people now have your number Proyect. More and more in the=
=20
future will become aware of you anti communist and anti working class=20
antics. You dead politically after this Proyect. Your scrapbook career ends=
=20
as a pro government and FBI yellow journalist
spreading lies and slanders against people in the anti war movement around=
=20
the Internet.=20

Do not think that this stuff will not be brought up where ever you show up=
=20
and try to pose as some sort of leftist.=20

Yes exactly. A lot of cosy "subjects" so you can avoid having to think - or=

You've said that about fifteen times in the last three months. I guess we'll=

just have to be content with the only extant fragment of Proyecto Thought in=
=20
the world. I certainly haven't heard any further elaboration on this=20
profound statement, though I've waited long and patiently. What about some=
=20
serious research into the relationship between Trotskyist intellectual sloth=

and the thinning of the ozone layer? Something you can really can get your=

Well we can't all be geniuses. But let's face it, Proyect. You wouldn't=20
