I just couldn’t let this one go unsaid. Tacitus.org just gave one of the best rattling of the pacifists who are playing apologist for every brutal modern-day dictator. The full text can be found here. The article goes into great detail on how the organizers of last weekend’s protest not only condone but support the regimes that propogated the Tiannemen Square Massacre, the bombing of Iraqi Kurds, the state-authored famine in North Korea, and the Sebrenicia Massacre. Excellent article with links to prove each one.

I want to make one thing crystal clear: opposition to the Iraqi war is not, in itself, un-American or wrong. So let’s get that out of the way. If you marched yesterday, or if you supported the march yesterday, I’m not interested in your opposition to the war. I’m interested in the moral free pass you gave to known proponents of tyranny and murder.

Let’s cut through the crap. Yesterday’s antiwar protests were organized by International ANSWER, a virtual front organization for the Worker’s World Party. The WWP, in case you didn’t know, split from the old Socialist Workers Party over the 1956 Soviet invasion of Hungary. No, not to oppose it — the WWP supported the invasion, and they’ve been staunch defenders of every manner of atrocity and horror in the name of socialism since. There’s no moral difference between their murderous ideology and that of, say, the American Nazi Party. Both romanticize evil. Both condone tyranny.

But of course there’s a social difference. Otherwise sensible, patriotic people — people who wouldn’t dream of marching for law and order with the Klan, who can’t imagine signing a Nazi Party USA petition for zoning enforcement, and who think that granting an interview to Southern Partisan disqualifies a man for high office — have no problem standing to be counted with the loathesome men and women of the WWP and International ANSWER.

It’s time to ask them why. It’s time to call them out.
