At National Review:
Protests against General David Petraeus Monday by CUNY students were organized by an ad hoc committee that includes several Communist groups.No surprise here. I've been covering campus communists for years now. What's particularly bothersome is how they pick up so much support from rank-and-file students, to say nothing of Democrat Party and so-called progressive organizations. It's no enemies on the left, as I always say.
A leaflet for the protests, which refers to Petraeus as a “war criminal” and “mass murderer,” says that the events were organized by the Ad Hoc Committee Against the Militarization of CUNY and were endorsed by the Internationalist Group, Workers Power-US, and IGNITE.
These groups are explicitly Communist in nature. Workers Power states that it is a “revolutionary, communist organization . . . in the tradition of Marx, Engels, Lenin, and Trotsky.” The Internationalist Group uses the hammer and sickle alongside its articles. IGNITE is a self-described “communist youth league.”
