American leftists are not your 1917 Lenin streetfighters. Buckwheat hopes they are, but everyone knows that Obuma is highly delusional.
You are making precisely the point I've often made myself about the vast difference between the Western (and especially the US) Left and the Left elsewhere (especially in the Third World).
However, remember that a journalist back in the late 60s/early 70s reported that the radicals he was interviewing at the time admitted that if the population after the "revolution" refused to adopt to the "new order" then up to 25 million people would have to be killed. He further stated that the radicals--with degrees from prestigious universities--began discussing the mechanics of murdering 25 million people . . . and they were perfectly serious. I'm sure someone on FR will be able to find the precise quote.
Something tells me that the "vopos" (volkspolizei/"people's police") won't just be blowing marijuana smoke in people's faces or hitting them with purses.
