RCP expelled from SF Anarchist Bookfair
by Bay Area Anarchist
Saturday Mar 14th, 2009 10:23 PM
Maoist from the RCP were booted out of the grounds of the SF Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair by vigilant anarchists who understand that Maoists have murdered anarchists and other anti-state revolutionaries whenever they've had the chance. No compromise or debate with our enemies!
So a couple of shills for the RCP decided to try to colonize some of the space inside the grounds of the San Francisco Hall of Flowers (the location of the annual SF Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair). Some naive anarchist at the information table had apparently given them the all-clear on his own initiative--although, to be fair, who knows what kind of bullshit the Maoists were slinging?

Alerted to the presence of our enemies, some of us went out to confront them, grabbing some of their stuff and kicking over a box of their dumb ass rag of a "news" paper. They thought they were being insulting by calling us "authoritarians"--as if Maoists are somehow not. One of the Bookfair organizers intervened to keep us from getting physical, and gave them 5 minutes to pack up their paraphernalia and leave the grounds, or else he'd get some of us to help them pack and move.

The zombies for Chairman Bob tried to debate the finer points of their legal status for a good two minutes, while studiously ignoring the time limit. The organizer then told them that their 5 minutes were up (I guess he couldn't tell the time either), and began gathering up their stuff. I was only too happy to help them. All the while they whined that we were discriminating against them.

They eventually settled in on the grass outside the grounds. About 20 minutes later, someone decided that even away from the entrance their presence was intolerable at our event, and chucked a 5 gallon bucket of water through the air at their table. It was a direct hit, and it was awesome to behold. They finally got the message, but not before complaining loudly to anyone who was dumb enough to listen to them.

SF Bay Area anarchists are certain to be denounced as counter-revolutionary scum in the next issue of the RCP "news" paper, but you heard it here first dear readers, and I for one, take full credit for participating in making sure that the Maoist shills didn't interfere with our event. Let them organize their own celebration where they can explain the joys of the Cultural Revolution, the betrayal of the Shanghai Commune, and the executions of self-organized workers and peasants who defied Mao and his thugs.

Revolution, not Parties.

Revolution, not States.

For anarchy!
