I have on occasion argued that the CP decision to support Roosevelt in
1936 was the single greatest political error in u.s. history. Be that as
it may, the CPUSA was at one time a noble institution albeit with many
warts. John Lacny is rapidly becoming one large wart & ought not be
dignified with comparisons to the old CP.

Splitting the People's Front against the Regime, forsooth.
