Naturally coming from someone who recently got up the nerve to critisize Gus
Hall and the pro Clinton politics of the CP the above, in fact the whole
letter, is a school of Stalinist falsification!

For any thinking person read Louis G.s letter in the light of his own
political trajectory.

Once a Stalinist always a Stalinist. In fact he just keeps repeating all of
the lies that go back to "Old Joe" himself.

So actually nothing his new really. Its just that the Stalinist are becoming
fewer and fewer as time moves on. I mean why even bother Louis. You can,t
get any handouts from the Kremlin any longer. So i really do not understand
the Stalinist sermon of lies and falsifications. Materially there is nothing
in it longer.
