Thanks for highighting the rhetoric of another leftist group who unfairly makes the rest of us on the antiwar left look "unhinged" (to quote an extremist conservative). Actually, Nov. 2 has come and gone and it turns out the world can wait, and will have to (as it should, because in a democracy with the rule of law, one cannot magically end "the Bush regime" simply by staging protests; to end it prematurely, these PR geniuses would have to convince the GOP Congress to return articles of impeachment against President Bush, and then to convict ... a likely thing). They're probably young, most of these activists, but it's always sad to see idealism being channeled into reckless and distorted, rather than thoughtful, protest movements. It's as if they're being taught that modulating one's criticism with concern for accuracy, proportion, and an understanding that some of their opponents have good motives would dilute their loyalty to the cause, or the ability to get angry at injustice.

We wrote about this group here.

Our favorite part of the WCW / Revolutionary Communist Party plan: impeachment is for wimps -- they seek the overthrow of the U.S. government. They say they haven't thought about what happens after the revolution, but since the RCP is a Leninist "vanguard," you can guess who they think should be in charge.

We also liked their quote "Katrina is part of his bigger agenda to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come."

There is good news. For all the bombast, their November 2 protests were ineffectual. We had a small roundup here.
