Promoting Communism in the Name of "Peace"

The so-called “antiwar” group United For Peace & Justice has announced that on April 4th, it will be sponsoring a massive New York City demonstration aimed at rallying public support “to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan” and “to address the economic crisis by cutting military spending”—the ultimate objective being to create “a new world of equality and justice, a world beyond war.”

But while UFPJ depicts itself as a well-meaning organization of politically independent, patriotic Americans whose major concern is “peace”—and the compliant, incurious mass media dutifully parrot that depiction—a closer look at UFPJ reveals the presence of a deceptive hidden agenda that has absolutely nothing to do with “peace.”

You see, UFPJ is led by the America-hating activist Leslie Cagan, a committed communist who aligns her politics with those of the longtime Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. Cagan was an original founder of the Committees of Correspondence, a splinter group rooted in the Communist Party USA. She was also intimately involved with the Venceremos Brigades, which Castro’s Cuban intelligence agency organized and trained in guerrilla warfare techniques. In the early 1990s, Cagan was the official coordinator of the U.S. Peace Council, a pro-Castro, pro-Sandinista, pro-FMLN, pro-PLO, anti-American organization.

In 2002 Cagan was a signatory to the Not In Our Name (NION) statement condemning the American government’s “injustices” perpetrated in the pursuit of “endless war”; its greed-driven “transfusions of blood for oil”; its determination to “erode [our] freedoms”; and its eagerness to “invade countries, bomb civilians, kill more children, [and annihilate] families on foreign soil.” And NION itself was founded by one of Leslie Cagan’s ideological kin: the longtime Maoist activist C. Clark Kissinger, who is a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party—a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist group calling for the overthrow of the U.S. government and its replacement with a Communist dictatorship.

In short, Leslie Cagan and her UFPJ are, like much of the so-called “anti-war” movement, utterly unconcerned with “peace.” Their chief objective is to transform America into a communist state under the guise of peace. Their modus operandi is to incessantly criticize virtually every American institution, tradition, and policy, thereby painting a picture of a nation entirely unworthy of any efforts to defend or preserve it.

If “peace” were in fact their concern, then prior to the Iraq War they would have issued at least one statement calling on Saddam Hussein to finally abide by the agreements he had made with the feckless and impotent United Nations; or they would have organized at least one demonstration communicating that same message outside the Iraqi embassy. But instead, all of UFPJ’s criticisms were, and continue to be, aimed exclusively at the United States.

Further proof that UFPJ’s agendas are less concerned with “peace” than with America’s transfiguration into a communist state, is contained in the organization’s literature promoting the upcoming April 4th event. That literature says that America can be set on the correct path only if it forges “a new economy based on people’s needs” and abandons the “out-of-date notion of trickle-down growth.” These phrases are unmistakable references to the superiority of communism over capitalism as an economic system.
