PHOTO! Re: Democrat representative and possible future Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee (also Korean war vet), Charlie Rangel, speaking at the podium at a Workers World Party / Troops Out Now rally in Harlem, New York, on March 19th, 2005, the 2nd anniversary of the start of the Iraq war: http://www.workers.org/march19/slides/14-rangel.html
The following is also from the website of the Workers World Party (workers.org) :
"On July 9 (1994), Workers World Party Chairperson Sam Marcy sent the following statement to Comrade Kim Jong Il, the Central Committee of the Workers Party of Korea and the State Funeral Committee of President Kim Il Sung.":
"Dear Comrade Kim Jong Il... Comrade Kim Il Sung devoted his whole life to the Korean people's struggle for national self-determination and the international working-class struggle for socialist emancipation. With his leadership, the Korean people defeated the Japanese colonial occupation and soon after brought about the first defeat of the U.S. imperialist military machine....
Workers World Party values our close, comradely relations with the Workers Party of Korea very highly. We are proud to have known Kim Il Sung as a great leader and a comrade in the international communist movement. And it is with the most profound sense of loss that we mark his passing. Yet it is also with the greatest revolutionary optimism that we are confident that Comrade Kim Il Sung's legacy will live on with your efforts to win new victories for the Korean people.... With comradely solidarity, Sam Marcy Chairperson, Workers World Party": http://www.workers.org/marcy/cd/sam94/1994html/s940721.htm
Comment: Troops Out Now is the latest front for the Workers World Party. See Yahoo search results for "Workers World" + "Troops Out Now" : http://tinyurl.com/h397j
Here are a few not-so "anti-war" statements from the Workers World Party front, Troops Out Now. (clarifications within parenthesis were inserted by myself. a link to the original source is included at the end of the statements) -LC :
TROOPS OUT NOW: "It is time for the antiwar movement to acknowledge the absolute and unconditional right of the Iraqi people to resist the occupation of their country without passing judgment on their methods of resistance.(i.e., it's ok to saw the heads off of captured and bound hostages while they beg hopelessly for their lives, or to car bomb tens of freedom-seeking Iraqis at a time while they line up to join the police force or cast votes in the country's first ever free election. Even dragging school teachers out of a classroom and shooting them before the terrified eyes of their little students is cool with us. [this actually happened btw]-LC)....their statement continues... "Even the founding charter of the United Nations clearly affirms the right of an occupied people to resist by force of arms."
"We need to demand the immediate, complete and unconditional withdrawal of all U.S. occupation troops from Iraq."(what good commie doesn't want a Russian-backed Iran to gain control of Iraq?-LC)
"We must support politically, morally and organizationally members of the U.S. armed services who are resisting the war, moreover, we must encourage this resistance."
"There must no longer be any hesitation on the part of our movement regarding our support of the struggle of the Palestinian people to free themselves from occupation.(in other words, blowing up innocent civilians at restaurants and shopping malls is just fine with us-LC) As a movement we have made a huge step forward in this regard. There must be no turning back."
"We must work to facilitate the widest unity between all of the forces that are seriously organizing against the war and occupation."
All of the above statements can be found at this Troops Out Now website: http://www.troopsoutnow.org/statements/outnow.html
This set of photos, from the WWP website, shows commie and terrorist attorneys, Lynn Steward and Ramsey Clark at the same WWP/Troops Out Now event that our old Korean war vet, Charlie Rangel, spoke at: http://www.workers.org/march19/index2.html

That looks like dear ole Charlie
Charlie is another Code Pink helper. As a former Marine and considering what Code Pink and it's leaders have done to Marines, Charlie's going straight to hell if Marines guard Heaven.
You have nothing to lose but your chains!
They didn't call the North Vietnamese communists "Charlie" for nuthin.
Yes, it is. If you click for the full-size photos, they captioned all of them. Not, of course, that you'd need it in Charlie's case.
Workers World Party (WWP) is a communist party in the United States founded in 1959 by Sam Marcy. Marcy and his followers split from the Socialist Workers Party in 1958 over a series of long-standing differences, among them Marcy's group's support for Henry A. Wallace's Progressive Party in 1948, the positive view they held of the Chinese Revolution led by Mao Zedong, and their endorsement of the 1956 Soviet intervention in Hungary, all of which the SWP opposed.
 Controversy Within the U.S. communist movement, WWP's politics are extremely unusual and controversial. The party agrees with Trotsky's description of pre-1991 Russia as being a "degenerated workers' state" and that countries such as Cuba, North Korea and China are deformed workers states. But members of the party nevertheless use the term "socialist" to describe these states, and they often support them much more energetically than do other U.S. communist parties. The WWP also supports Iraq and Libya as countries they consider victims of U.S. imperialism though it should be noted that WWP does not describe either of those two states as being socialist. The party also has a controversial position regarding the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, which it describes as "a battle, not a massacre." Finally, the party opposed both Gulf Wars but was also one of the few U.S. communist groups other than the modern Spartacist League to hail the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. Most controversially of all, however, is the fact that WWP has defended Slobodan Miloeviæ and Saddam Hussein against attacks from both the right and the left. Notably, former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, founder of the International Action Center, is in Iraq as of December 2005 acting as a consult to Hussein's defense team. Clark also spoke sympathetically of Miloeviæ at his funeral in March 2006, telling the crowd, "History will prove that Slobodan Miloeviæ was right."
You have to give the WWP credit for making the Socialist Workers' Party look good.
You didn't call Rangel a former Marine did ya?
Yes it was.
It seems like the enemy is well funded, and has a great propaganda organization right here in the U.S. No matter. Methinks Rove's October surprise is our base going to the polls in mass.
Drive a friend to the polls!
