"The media have pushed the idea that the demonstration this weekend at the
White House was an 'anti-war' gathering. What they didn't say was who was
behind it... For the record, the lead organizer [was] ANSWER, which the
media routinely refer to as an 'antiwar group.' It is nothing of the sort.
In fact, ANSWER is a front group for the Stalinist Workers World Party. And
any group that qualifies for that epithet in front of its name deserves
special scrutiny, since Josef Stalin was responsible for the murder of as
many as 25 million human beings... So why do communists—particularly those
who march under Stalin's flag—get different treatment? And why do thousands
of average people feel comfortable marching arm in arm with them? It's a
puzzle. After all, according to the 'Black Book of Communism' —a widely
cited and respected compendium of communism's crimes in the 20th
century—communist regimes murdered as many as 100 million people over the
last century. That's quite a record. Indeed, all the century's great mass
murders—Mao Zedong (65 million), Stalin (25 million), Hitler (21 million),
Pol Pot (2 million)—were communists or socialists. Yet many well-meaning
people who marched this weekend perhaps didn't know all this. Or perhaps
they don't mind having their cause besmirched by people who aren't really
anti-war at all, but anti-America, anti-West, anti-freedom and
anti-capitalist... Maybe it proves the old adage: Lie down with dogs, wake
up with fleas." —Investor's Business Daily
