Questions for Dellums and other "authorities"

How much more do we need to see of this system before we decide we have had enough of it, and work with everything we have to build a movement for revolution to get rid of it, and put something in its place that would value the lives of the millions of people like the one wantonly murdered and would actually bring justice?

Ron Dellums, the mayor of Oakland, along with many other “authorities,” went to great lengths to try to prevent, and prepare to viciously suppress, any expressions of outrage (in connection with the now added insult of the verdict) revealing yet again and very clearly what their concerns and priorities are, and are not, and what and whom they really represent and act on behalf of.

Why is it that they are NOT after all really concerned about and preoccupied with the outrageous stealing of a precious life through a wanton act of...yes, MURDER, and with the further outrage and insult of a totally unjust verdict in regard to this, which denies this murder, slaps the family and many others—all people who are tired of oppression and care about justice—in the face and in effect says the life taken is not precious but worthless.

Why are Mr. Dellums and all such types—and those higher up for whom Mr. Dellums and the like are in fact flunkies—much more concerned about, and really preoccupied with, preventing people from righteously expressing their outrage, and with viciously repressing them if they dare to do so?!

What does this tell us about them and the system they act on behalf of and enforce?

And how much more do we need to see of this system before we decide we have had enough of it, and work with everything we have to build a movement for revolution to get rid of it, and put something in its place that would value the lives of the millions of people like the one wantonly murdered and would actually bring justice?

“The days when this system can just keep on doing what it does to people, here and all over the world…when people are not inspired and organized to stand up against these outrages and to build up the strength to put an end to this madness…those days must be GONE. And they CAN be.”

As long as the "Revolution" Club is part of the cult of Bob Avakian, thye will always write stale rhetoric about a group and its cult leader and not be able to think for themselves. The questions they raise insulting to the peopel actually making revolution in this city and around the world. Think for yourself. Anarchy not Avakian!

Okay, "the whole damn system is guilty", which means we need to join the RCP, follow Chairman Avakian because he has "the leadership we need" to "overthrow imperialism", and impose a "dictatorship of the proletariat" centralized under party command.

If my lack of enthusiasm for banal slogans, boring rhetoric, and hierarchical domination seems "reactionary", excuse me.

I've been to demos w/ these folks and some of them are solid comrades, but yeah...to those folks, leave the cult, we are fighting same issues, but ask yourself, are you speaking from your heart or just regurgitating Bob? Just one thing, please, stop selling his newspapers at demos, that's not what you should be there for. That is all.
