I’ve long thought the anti-war crowd was closely linked to radical anti-liberal, anti-democratic organizations. Mike Brock’s first hand exposure to the people involved confirms and clarifies the situation. It’s a must read post.
Yesterday, Jack Layton took to the streets of Toronto ... a protest organized by the far-left, radical Toronto Coalition to Stop the War.
I've had some face-to-face conversations with the organizers of the TCSW, last year, when I went to a conference called Marxism 2007: A Festival of Resistance on the University of Toronto campus.
I spoke to quite a few individuals there, and most of my conversations are still recorded on minidisc, as the purpose of my trip was material for my show. So I can tell people, first hand, that the main people behind nowar.ca are principally communists.
...these people are so far to the left, in their support with the Communist Party of Canada, and the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist), that they see the NDP as only a lesser-evil at best.
...are not necessarily against militarism. No, they are against militarism in the form of liberal hegemony. And by liberal, they mean capitalist. They have no problem with organizations like the FARC, or other communist paramilitaries.
Remember, communists are anti-liberal. Not anti-war.
I'm also pointing this out to show the kind of company that Jack Layton, Linda McQuaig, Judy Rebick, and others keep. They stand side-by-side at rallies.
