You Could Always Support the Maoists

Patrick asks: The “communists” in America attack real socialist countries like Cuba and attack countries striving to make real socialist reforms like Venezuela. American “communists” attack the real reds while simultaneously they make excuses for the Democratic Party appeasing their capitalist masters. American “communists” have just become another ideological appendage of the capitalist worldview.
QUESTION: What can a American who is a real red support if even the “communist” party in America is infiltrated by capitalist rhetoric.

First of all, I would like to say that these two sentences have a lot of truth to them:
American “communists” attack the real reds while simultaneously they make excuses for the Democratic Party appeasing their capitalist masters. American “communists” have just become another ideological appendage of the capitalist worldview.
Indeed, indeed.
I suppose one could always go Maoist.
There’s the Revolutionary Communist Party, but they don’t say much of anything about Obama. Most of the party is Black, and they mostly talk about police brutality, prisoner’s rights and whatnot. At this point, it’s nothing more than a gigantic cult revolving around their leader, Bob Avakian. He has essentially formed a personality cult around himself.
There has been a big debate about this in Maoist circles lately, with a lot of good work coming out of India. Bottom line is that Commie personality cults have got to go. They criticize worship of sky-Gods, yet demand that we worship a mere mortal man. Screw that.
The Kasama Project are some Maoists who are doing a lot of interesting thinking. They are mostly exiles from the RCP and Avakian’s idiot cult. An article from yesterday blasts Obama.
I’m not about to join a US Maoist party. Way too radical for my tastes. I’m more of a Castroite, sorry.

  1. “Kasama” means comrade in Tagalog(Filipino) by the way. Revolutionaries address each other as kasama or the short cut ka, e.g. “Kasamang Robert” or “Ka Robert.”
