The far-left has never met an anti-American dictator they didn’t love.
President Obama and the U.S. news media are treating Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi in a “racist” and “hostile” manner, according to a U.S. communist revolutionary party.
The Workers World Party called for U.S. “progressives” to intensify a “class struggle” in the country in solidarity with Libya.
The party has been spearheading ongoing pro-union protests in Wisconsin in response to proposed budget cuts in the Midwestern state.
“While President Barack Obama has publicly called for Gadhafi to step down from office, he treated Mubarak with kid gloves before the resolve of the Egyptian masses forced Mubarak to leave office,” stated an editorial this week on the Workers World Party website.
“The racist, hostile treatment of Gadhafi is not an isolated example,” continued the piece.
The editorial claimed the “capitalist media” are carrying out a “vicious, vindictive campaign against Gadhafi, characterizing him in demonizing, racist terms like ‘mad dog.’”
Referring to the U.S.governmentand the West, the communist party charged, “The imperialists don’t care about any suffering of the Libyan people but will do what they deem in their interests to gain control of the oil that Libya possesses.
“The people of Libya don’t need imperialist intervention,” the editorial added.
The communist party put out a call for U.S. “progressives” to engage in a so-called class struggle.
