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…”
“That’s right boss man, them bells are tolling. It’s time to settle the score…”
“They won’t be able the dam the rushing tides of people’s war…”
“The AKs are clocked, locked and cocked in the Dakotas. Because the North and South belongs to the Lakota…”
“And this is just a first taste of what’s to come when all ducks will be in a row. Wait till you see my Panther comrades lead an uprising in every single last ghetto…”
“The Pentagon? they’re lucky all these people are sleeping. Cause with all their troops in Iraq, we could easily catch them sleeping….”
“They wanna know why we’ll bear arms? that’s easily explainable…”
“So follow the Party’s command, every woman student and man, fall into position. The Workers World Party will put the bosses up against the wall and bring justice to each one in the order of who’s the greediest of them all…”
“And as for the pigs? We’re out of time. Because like a good Jew or a Muslim, we don’t deal with no swine.”
Next is the original version, from the Workers World Party, October 23 2010 conference in Durham, North Carolina. It is identical except that the it uses the word “fascists”, rather than “Tea Party fascists”
There is also a cool “bonus track”, in which Mike Martinez tells the history of Haitian revolution.
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.
