The Forces Of Anti-Americanism Seek To Intimidate The Press
Toogood Reports ^ | April 11, 2003 | Cliff Kincaid

The communist Workers World Party (WWP) on April 12 will stage another anti-war protest in Washington, D.C. through its International ANSWER front group. This time, they are targeting "Corporate Profiteers, Fox News and the Pro-War Media." They plan to march past the Washington offices of Fox News, the Washington Post, and the New York Times, along with various corporate and government offices.

It is ironic that the WWP would target "pro-war media " such as Fox News, the Washington Post and the New York Times, when the latter two news organizations have gone out of their way to avoid exposing the communist nature of the WWP and its use of front groups. Attacking these news organizations is a form of intimidation, designed to make sure that the nature of the communist campaign against America is not exposed by the major media.

Holding an anti-war rally at this point may strike some as almost as laughable as the Iraqi Minister of Information describing Iraqi military conquests while American tanks encircle him. But the WWP understands that the war is not over. Indeed, former CIA director James Woolsey says we are involved in a World War against terrorism and Arab/Muslim regimes that could last decades. Does the U.S. have the stomach for such a fight? Or the will to win?

It is obvious that there has been a rise in the forces of anti-Americanism. Walden Bello, a radical professor at the University of the Philippines and former member of the Communist Party there, has written an article noting that the anti-corporate globalization movement, the anti-war movement, and Islamic fundamentalism are all providing "diplomatic and material weight to the containment of the U.S." Bello, a major thinker on the anti-American left, cites other developments and makes other predictions:

A German friend of mine and author, Hilmar von Campe, has an interesting perspective on all of this. Now living in the U.S., he says that, "We are living through a worldwide anti-American campaign with huge demonstrations for ‘peace’ that is being organized by Communists and Socialists internationally." The demonstrations, he notes, "have nothing to do with peace, which only serves as a pretext. They are motivated by envy, hatred and ignorance and meant to weaken the United States and strengthen her enemies."

Born in Germany in 1925, von Campe has described how the German people themselves failed to stop the rise of Nazi Germany. He faults the German churches and German Christians in particular for failing to stand up to Hitler and the lies promoted by a corrupt Nazi regime. He witnessed first hand the terrible consequences of self-deception, while the world was plunged into war and his own nation and family were destroyed.

Von Campe praises the Bush decision on Iraq. "The build-up of terrorist infrastructures and capabilities by enemy states cannot be tolerated," he says. "It gets more dangerous the more time they get. Hostility of the global left is not the result of that decision - it was in place long before the war began."

 The war itself, he contends, had a positive side effect even before American troops were greeted with American flags and flowers in Baghdad. It highlighted our friends and enemies in the world. On April 12, our enemies will be in the streets once again. They are not going away. Our media should expose rather than appease them.

They are motivated by envy, hatred and ignorance...

But not necessarily in that order.

Hah! What a bunch of "Baghdad Bob's" these commies are. The minister of wishful thinking should join ANSWER, to bone up on his ability to lie with a straight face. Yeah, we're shaking in our boots. The commies are nothing more than comic relief when it comes to being an actual threat. And enemies of the U.S.? That's sure as heck nothing new. We won one cold war, we'll win the next. And if things turn hot? We'll win that one even quicker. These commies should go to Iraq and fight alongside their Islamist brothers. Give us a free shot at them today!

Commies of the world should unite, get together in Cuba for a huge rally so we can test how resistant are they to MOAB.

Freep & Roll!

The whole thing is coming to a crashing end for the left. The commies, as the "tin foil hat" crowd of the democrat's saddam pelosi, are only saying what the rest of the rats are either thinking or should be thinking. Give the communists credit. They know what it means to have thier asses kicked on the field of public debate. They are the battered and broken vets of the defeats they took under Ronald Reagan and GWB. They are acting like the canaries of the old coal mines. Will the rats and their comrades in the media heed the commie warnings? Of course not! They are all too invested in, and blinded by, hate for President Bush. They really were never as organized as we feared they were. They did not have to be, because the rat media always covered for them with lies and misreportage. Now they are losing their grip on the flow of news. Slowly now, but with a quickening pace, the rat media is losing it's power to lie and go unchallenged. The 3 legged stool of Talk Radio The Net and FOXtv is slowly sapping their strenght.

I'm sure FoxNews is aware of this situation, but maybe a heads-up, along with many sources of information exposing ANSWER for what they really are, would be good info for the network to have as ammunition at-the-ready as the Fox cameras film these wackos walking by the offices. It'd be great to see the commies' agenda laid out for all to see live on Fox tomorrow.

Just read earlier that the communist/socialist anti-war supporting movement is ebbing. This article does make a lot of sense.

"The Forces Of Anti-Americanism Seek To Intimidate The Press"

I thought this was going to be a piece about Rather, Brokaw, Jennings and Couric protesting in the street in front of Fox News studio.
