Cindy, Other Commies To Protest Congress

From a "World Can’t Wait" press release:

BUSH MUST GO!

Demonstration at Opening of Congress, 12 noon, Jan 4

DANIEL ELLSBERG to Join MICHAEL RATNER, CINDY SHEEHAN, JOHN NICHOLS, GORE VIDAL, DEBRA SWEET, DAVID SWANSON speaking at National Press Club, 7pm

‘If War Crimes, Torture, and Crimes Against Humanity Are Not Reason to Impeach, What Is?’

WASHINGTON, Jan. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — On January 4, people will demonstrate at the opening of Congress. Protesters from up and down the East Coast, some dressed in orange Guantanamo torture jumpsuits, will demand that Congress investigate and hold accountable the Bush administration for criminal liability, and that the House of Representatives immediately initiate Articles of Impeachment against Bush for "high crimes and misdemeanors."

1. DEMONSTRATION, 12noon, Thursday, January 4 Upper Senate Park (Delaware & Constitution, just north of Capitol), Washington DC

2. "VOICES FOR IMPEACHMENT" evening program featuring DANIEL ELLSBERG, MICHAEL RATNER, JOHN NICHOLS, CINDY SHEEHAN, DEBRA SWEET, video message from GORE VIDAL, 7pm, Thursday, National Press Club, 529 14th Street NW

Millions thought they were voting against the war and the president, but the Democratic leadership of the new Congress has declared that impeachment is off the table.

That night at 7pm, DANIEL ELLSBERG (Pentagon Papers), MICHAEL RATNER (pres., Center for Constitutional Rights), JOHN NICHOLS, CINDY SHEEHAN, DAVID SWANSON and DEBRA SWEET will speak at a forum sponsored by World Can’t Wait. GORE VIDAL will send a video message.

Debra Sweet, National Director of World Can’t Wait: "A regime as criminal as the Bush regime should not be allowed to remain in office. This unjust war was started on lies and has continued despite an election where millions thought they were voting to stop it. The Democrats allow debate only on how to run the war more effectively, and refuse to even consider impeachment.

This is unacceptable. If George Bush is not removed from office before 2008, then everything he has done — his doctrine of preemptive war, legalization of torture, undermining the rule of law, and inserting fundamentalist Christianity into the laws, culture and institutions of the country — will continue no matter who becomes the next president. As people of conscience living in the U.S. we cannot allow that to happen."

WORLD CAN’T WAIT–DRIVE OUT THE BUSH REGIME

Even their spittle-flecked press release is almost incoherent due to their pent-up rage at our representative form of government.

Of course it is just the usual suspects — the professional America haters.

They won’t be happy until we live under a Stalinist regime and they are Stalin. And this is no hyperbole as most of these groups are huge fans of Stalinism throughout history and all around the world.

For instance, Frontpage Magazine’s Discover The Networks sums the the World Can’t Wait group up nicely:

World Can’t Wait

Founded in June 2005 by Charles Clark Kissinger, a longtime leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party, World Can’t Wait (WCW) is a direct action movement seeking to organize "people living in the United States to take responsibility to stop the whole disastrous course led by the Bush administration." The organization asserts that removing President Bush from office "will be like removing a forty-pound tumor from your gut." WCW vows "to send Bush, Cheney and the rest of those fascists packing. … After that, there are people in ‘World Can’t Wait’ who are working for everything from reforming the Democratic party, to building a 3rd party, to revolution.”

On October 13, 2005, WCW organized a protest "encampment" near the White House. Participating activists spent the ensuing twenty days counting down to the "end of the Bush regime." The campers were treated to visits from "national voices of conscience" who had endorsed their efforts. Most prominent among them was anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan. Sunsara Taylor, a WCW organizer, declared that the "encampment is a premonition. Soon, all the pent-up anger and outrage — of the hundreds of thousands of Black people betrayed during [Hurricane] Katrina, of the millions of women who refuse to give up abortion, of the immigrants who have been demonized and rounded up, of the majority that is fed up with the lies and lies and lies — will come forward in a movement to drive Bush out."

The WCW movement encourages the harassment and intimidation of those opposed to its agendas. On October 24, 2005, two Los Angeles-based WCW activists infiltrated a West Hollywood appearance by conservative speaker David Horowitz. Professing themselves determined to "shut this fascist down," the activists had to be forcibly restrained and removed from the theater, and later boasted that they had disrupted a "Nazi Rally."

Another target of WCW attacks is Berkeley Law Professor John Yoo, who incurred the organization’s wrath after advising the Bush administration that the detainees being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba were not eligible for Geneva Convention protections accorded to prisoners of war. In late October 2005 a number of WCW organizers stormed into Yoo’s class, accompanied by student activists outfitted in orange jumpsuits meant to symbolize those worn by detainees in Guantanamo Bay.

A number of college campuses host WCW chapters, and many of the group’s activities center on student organizing on both the college and high-school levels – exhorting young people to engage in civil disobedience, distribute political literature, and participate in such activities as "walkouts" and "campus shutdowns."

A key date in WCW history was November 2, 2005. To hasten the coming of its eagerly anticipated communist revolution, the organization designated this date, the one-year mark of President Bush’s reelection, a day of "society-wide resistance" in cities and college campuses across the United States. There were small-scale protests in a number of cities — including New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, Atlanta and Chicago — aimed at helping to ignite the communist revolution for which WCW organizers candidly agitate. At the San Francisco rally, the festivities began with the reading of a statement from the Revolutionary Communist Party. That was followed by a taped message from convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu Jamal, a supporter of World Can’t Wait. Cindy Sheehan also delivered a speech.

A comprehensive list of WCW’s individual and organizational endorsers can be viewed on the WCW website. Among the names on the list are: the After Downing Street anti-war coalition, the ANSWER coalition of New York City, Aris Anagnos, Ed Asner, Mumia Abu Jamal, Bill Ayers, Code Pink, Harry Belafonte, Bob Bossie, Ward Churchill, John Conyers, Michael Eric Dyson, Eve Ensler, Jodie Evans, Gloria Steinem, C. Clark Kissinger, Frances Kissling, Martin Sheen, Jane Fonda, the Islamic Circle of North America, Islamic Association of America, Jesse Jackson, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, Michael Lerner, the National Lawyers Guild, Armando Navarro, Not In Our Name, Michael Ratner, Cindy Sheehan, Gore Vidal, Carl Dix of the Revolutionary Communist Party, Alice Walker, Leonard Weinglass, Cornel West, Sean Penn, Harold Pinter, Maxine Waters, Al Sharpton, Susan Sarandon, Progressive Democrats of America, Major Owens, Mark Crispin Miller, and Howard Zinn.

Virtually all of the foregoing individuals and groups were signatories to a December 12, 2005, WCW paid advertisement that appeared in The New York Times, accusing the Bush administration of "setting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way" by “waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq … openly torturing people … moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule … [and] enforc[ing] a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance." Also signing this advertisement was the radical attorney Lynne Stewart.

On September 20, 2006, WCW ran another ad in The New York Times, promoting its upcoming October 5 rally "to drive out the Bush regime." Billed as a set of concurrent "protests in cities all across the country," the ad exhorted people to skip work and school that day in order to participate in the demonstrations. The declared aim of the protests was to bring "to a halt" the U.S. government’s alleged pursuit of "endless wars," its routine use of "torture," its indifference to the victims of Hurricane Katrina (in 2005), and its quest to transform the United States into a "theocracy."

To fund its various protests and appeals, WCW relies partly on individual contributions and in the main on the Alliance for Global Justice, a Washington D.C.-based 501(c)(3) charity "focused on human, environmental and worker rights.”

Our hero Zombietime has documented some of the WCW’s noble works here.

The other participants, such as Michael Ratner and his the Center for Constitutional Rights have similar radical anti-American pedigrees. The CFR even has the granddaughter of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg in their leadership.

Their hatred for our country and our system of government knows no bounds.

But you will hear no mention of any of this in the fawning coverage of this non-event by our purpose-driven media over the next few days.
