What an event! The globe's most communicative gorilla (not guerrilla)
actually has a meaningful thought!
Yes, stupid, the paradigm is the same between pre-Stalinist radicalism and
Wahhabism. In fact, apeboy, that's the subject of every one of my books:
SAILORS'S UNION OF THE PACIFIC: local radical tradition destroyed by Stalinism.
POUM (with Alba): attempt by latter to destroy former
STRANGE SILENCE/NICARAGUA: how assholes like you helped Stalinism strangle
the local revolution
CALIFORNIA, TWO FACES: you actually got it. Have an extra banana!
I think to be called a "most peculiar character" by a person who wants to
revive Cochranism is pretty funny. Your internet site is a zoo of poseurs
and losers with a couple of exceptions.
The claim I ever snitched on anyone is a typical Stalinist libel. If you
cry snitch, you have to produce someone who was snitched on or who at least
witnessed the snitching. There are no such because I have never snitched on
anybody, ridiculous charges to the contrary. In fact, I opposed any such
activity regarding the Central American thing in the U.S.
I had no idea Paul Flewers, who I thought was sane, cared about this
nonsense. Stan Woods is a psychopath who had the nice habit of leaving
bullets on the shelves of SWP bookstores.
I am no longer in the Bay Area. I am returning to Europe -- specifically to
the Netherlands, where I will write on and possibly testify before the
Dutch parliamentary inquiry on Srebrenica. Oh, yes, I will snitch on your
idol Milosevic's minions, if I get a chance.
Normal people would consider becoming a Sufi and defending Islam in the
U.S. right now to be pretty surrealistic and even, perhaps, an example of
internationalist solidarity with oppressed people. So maybe you changed and
(this was a correction sent in a subsequent email)
I meant: the paradigm between pre-Stalinist radicalism and traditional
Islam, Stalinism and Wahhabism...
Hey here's the kind of thing you learn when you are smart enough to read
real books: the murderous Stalinist faction in the Yugoslav CP in the 1930s
was nicknamed "the Wahhabis"!
Keep on keepin' on with Cochranism, Milosevic, and fake Indians!
