Workers World Party Activist – “I Got My Scope on You Tea Party Fascists”

One of America’s most extreme communist organizations, the Workers World Party held a national convention in New York, November 13 and 14 2010.

One member, Florida based Cuban-American Mike Martinez fired up the crowd with an original poem. Martinez openly condoned violence against Tea Party activists and called for armed revolution, “people’s war” and firing squads for “greedy” bosses.

Martinez also “rapped” that Lakota activists, armed with AK47s were preparing for war in the Dakotas and that New Black Panther Party “comrades” were ready to start “uprisings” in ghettos across America.

Some transcriptions from Martinez’s poem. Emphasis added.

“So get ready, cause I’m coming strapped…”

“Don’t forget, I got my scope on you Tea Party fascists. I’m reading Lenin, training in target practice. Let’s see who’s the fastest….”

“After genocide, slavery, AIDS and global warming, this beef is unsquashable, because the class contradictions have become permanently irreconcilable…”

“Remember New Orleans? They let those levees break…”

…Martinez’s rantings should not be dismissed lightly. The Workers World Party has been around since 1959 and has a significant presence in many major U.S. cities.

The W.W.P. supports North Korea and has very close ties to Cuba.

In the 1970s, many Party members worked closely with the terrorist Weather Underground. Several W.W.P. cadre, for instance attended the Weathermen’s February 1976 National Hard Times Conference in Chicago, with the likes of Jennifer Dohrn, sister of W.U.O. leader Bernardine Dohrn.

Another prominent W.U.O. leader, Bernardine Dohrn’s husband Bill Ayers, was involved in at least one W.W.P. front while living in New York in the early 1980s.

The W.W.P. apparently believes that major instability is looming in the U.S. and mean to take full advantage of it. They will likely be in the thick of any violence that may break out on American streets in the coming months and years.

If the F.B.I. is doing its job, it will have a record of the name and address of every single W.W.P. leader on file.

For America’s sake, I hope they do.
