Who knows why Paul Le Blanc is dignifying this slimy gathering. Maybe 
the prospect of speaking from a podium is a drug more powerful than 
Oxycontin. But what does this say about the grasp of "socialism from 
below" and all that other sanctimonious jive when your main theoretician 
on how to create a blemish-free revolutionary party is going to lend his 
name to a group that has just run a kangaroo court to help a top leader 
avoid the consequences of the most brutal crime short of murder. And 
then when leading members of the party organize a faction to set things 
right, they meet bureaucratic obstacles as bad as any I ever saw in the 
American group with the same name.

Hypocrisy reigns supreme.
