This editorial is the worst kind of lying, Stalinist slander. How
convenient that PSL doesn't name the antiwar groups or socialist
groups which have supposedly sold their souls to the bourgeoisie.
Regarding the third point of unity: UNAC has always taken a clear
position: no imperialist intervention in Libya. Period. Stop. End of
sentence. That's it. And it's on that basis that we called for demos
everywhere last month.
We do NOT require our endorsers, however, to refrain in their own
literature from criticizing murderous, fake anti-imperialists like
Qaddafi (or Mugabe or Assad etc. etc. etc.). Because socialist groups
are SUPPOSED to stand for the interests of the workers and peasants of
the countries which they are trying to free from imperialist pressure
(pressure which is aided by the mistakes and crimes of dictators like
Qaddafi). For PSL, however, criticism of these fakers and thugs is
capitulating to corporate demonization.
I just finished reading Ngo Van's memoirs -- the one where he
describes how Ho butchered Vietnamese Trotskyists. What's your stand
on that, Eli?
Oops!!! I guess I just became a centrist, right, Uncle Joe (or Ho or
Muammar, take your pick)?
