Socialists Motivated by Wikileaks – "It is Time to Tear Down the Empire"

Whatever the motivation of the Wikileakers, the far left is using the leaks to motivate their base.

Andrea Pason and Billy Wharton are co-chairs of the Socialist Party USA. They just published this statement in LINKS, an international marxist journal run by the Australian Socialist Alliance.

The latest Wikileaks revelations should be a call to action for all Americans. It is time to tear down the empire that has been created in their name. Two tasks are first and foremost. We need to create a vibrant movement to end the wars being waged in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. No more occupations, no more military surges and no more drone attacks. Simultaneously, we must demand that the prison facility at Guantanamo Bay be closed immediately. Achieving such demands will open a political space to more directly challenge the centre of the military industrial complex by calling for an immediate reduction of the military budget by 50% and the closing of all US military bases abroad.

As democratic socialists, we imagine another society, where the great wealth this world produces is put to use to meet human needs. Such a world would not need the secret cloak that covers the operations of the US empire. It would, instead, be based on notions that seem very distant from our current reality – democracy, free association and self-determination. We think that democratic socialism holds the potential to live up to these lofty ideals. Let the Wikileaks disclosures provide the motivation for you to join in this struggle.

Whenever you want to know who is behind a project, look at who has most to gain.

The far left clearly has more to gain from Wikileaks, than do those who want to preserve freedom and the American republic.

  1. Ghastley1,
    I was more referenceing the post above mine,wow. But no they aren't smart enough to understand that Chinas economic burst was because they had implemented the despised "Capitalist",system.They also aren't smart enough to know that Capitalism empowers everyone to have a chance at a better life and that socialism or communism,same thing,impoverishes everyone but a very few at the top.Communism is for losers and ego maniacs who don't have what it takes to make it.

  2. Many leftists are "idealists", and as such, are basically illogical. There's no other way to put it simply. As Bill Buckley, Jr. noted, "Idealism is fine, but as it approaches reality the cost becomes prohibitive."

    For example, take this line from the second paragraph. "As democratic socialists, we imagine another society, where the great wealth this world produces…" Stop right there.

    Hasn't it ever occurred to these fruitcakes that "the great wealth this world produces" didn't simply come into being, as one might produce a rabbit from a seemingly empty hat? And it certainly didn't arise from the careful redistribution of some naturally occurring, spontaneous pile of cash laying in the street, just waiting for the libs to pass around!

  3. Can anyone translate this last comment from anonymous into logical sequencing.I got the first sentence then hit a tree or something 'cause it all got fuzzy after that.Where am I,What day is it, and who the hell are you?

  4. Thank god we are aware of how these bandits work.I would not put it past them to have made all this wikileaks up.How dare they suggest that our govnmt.would lie to us.If we did not go into Iraq Saddam would by now have been sitting in the whitehouse after using all the WMD he had.Do you want more 9/11's? Let the govmnt get on with things they need to do.We just need to do what we do and not worry.

  5. I think this wikileaks stuff,and this sudden reinterest in net neutrality are interlinked as are this sudden burst of energy from these scums in the unions and leftist weirdos in the democratic party."as in the days of Noah,so shall it be at the Coming of the Son of Man". We win,and sadly they lose and lose Big.Forever.Even so hail His name.We're on the last few pages guys.Pray

  6. LOL Notice they're not outraged about any particular bit of info- they're just trying to give the impression there's some really sinister stuff that got leaked. That's why they try to prod people to be motivated about it- there's nothing there to motivate naturally. Commies are so clever- not.


  7. I went to the Links site and posted the following comment which I doubt will pass by their "moderation". I really do hate these people. Makes me appreciate the fact that God did create a hell and an eternal lake of fire. Now for my comment posted to them:

    As an American in a center-right country, i.e. the U.S., who believes in liberty, freedom, and a Constitutional Republic, not in the lie of a Socialist "utopia", which socialism is nothing but the sins of envy, covetousness, thievery, and yes even greed for power, I kinda of hope Marxists, i.e. Communists, Socialists, and Progressives, do rise up for then we can finally kill this cancer of the Left in this country.

    "925 million people in the world people who do not have enough to eat. One out of four children – roughly 146 million – in developing countries are left underweight. 12 million children under the age of 18 in sub-Saharan Africa are orphaned because of HIV/AIDS."

    That is not America's fault. That is the fault of corrupt governments with most of them being SOCIALIST. Socialism makes everyone but the rulers poor. Socialism is destructive and evil.

    Socialism has always been a failure. A cancer that failed under murderous tyrants like Stalin and Mao. It is nothing new. "Democratic Socialism" is nothing but mob thievery stealing from some to give to others with most of it retained by the ruling class.

    So start your "revolution". You may then just be surprised to find out that most Americans will be aiming their guns at YOU!!!!

  8. Have these people ever heard of a terrorist? Have they ever heard of Hitler? Stalin? Have they ever imagined that some people don't respond to anything but peace through the threat of superior firepower?

    Fairyland must be a nice place to live.
