Who are the People Behind the Censorship of Non-Leftist Organizations?

The WWP, for one.

That's the Workers World Party - and, if that sounds vaguely Old-Style Communist, well - BINGO! They are.

Here is one of them: Heather Cottin - a retired professor at La Guardia Community College. To see what her students thought of her, go here. Some liked her, others thought her terrible - but, virtually all of them agreed that she was VERY opinionated. Her Linkedin page - see how bland it was? No mention of her membership in the leadership of the local WWP, support of terrorists and NK.

Here are some of the WWP posing in that Great Wonderful Peoples' Paradise, North Korea!


What the guy in the middle (Larry Holmes) had to say about his trip:
A high point for me was walking on the Pueblo [a captured U.S. spy ship]. You saw all the confessions of the spies.
The purpose of our trip was simple — it was an important occasion for the DPRK and an opportune time to reaffirm our unwavering solidarity with them. We were not the only ones from the U.S. There was a delegation from the Socialist Workers Party. Progressive attorneys Ramsey Clark and Mara Verheyden-Hilliard were there, as was the ANSWER Coalition.
This was my first time in the DPRK. They make a big impression. That military parade on July 27th, wow. And we thousands of guests weren’t the only ones from outside looking at it. There probably was a satellite up above from the Pentagon looking down at it. And the message from the Koreans was: Don’t mess with us. We want to be able to develop in peace. We want a peace treaty. We want unity. But if you think you’re going to push us around, it’s not going to go down that way.
The level of society, the cultural level, what they put into making sure that everyone is healthy, that everybody is fed, that the children have schools, that every generation is taken care of, whether in Pyongyang or outside the city, is just incredible.
BTW, here's a link to Larry's information on KeyWiki - he's a BUSY boy!

What's my purpose in posting all of this information? I want people to know what nut-jobs are behind this push to silence opposition. The amazing thing, to me, is the willingness of these people to put their aims, motivations, and - frankly - twisted viewpoints right out there.

So, I'm going to be taking advantage of it. Get more background on WWP here.

Is he nuking futz? How much hate for our culture must one muster up to believe this level of bullshit?
