"You got your brains dehydrated
Problem the problem is you
What you gonna do"
Nobel Prize winner Doris Lessing has said that if Barack Obama does not support Hillary Clinton, he would only end up assassinated as president. Although her cynicism is realistic, it is inexcusable how the old Soviet revisionist Lessing is still pining for Clinton to "calm down" the situation instead of condemning imperialist politics. Her suggested solution is that Obama serve as Clinton's vice-president. It goes to show that old appendages of the imperialist state go on being appendages of the capitalist class even when there is no Soviet Union as a figleaf to rally her like. It has to do with not being able to stand on her own two feet.
On the other hand, judging from the others calling themselves "Maoist" in the world, it does indeed seem impossible for proletarian activists to stand on their two feet as they simply echo what the Soviets did decades later. Perhaps that is why the RCP=CIA, Worldcantwait, Jacobin1949, Mike Ely, RosaRL, the CP=u$a all fawn on the Democrats-- basically because MIM is wrong and there are no independent exploited masses in the world like we always said.
That brings us to why MIM has suspended offensive operations as of today. We asked the Russians for a simple thing, and clued in people will realize that if they are unwilling to grant that at this moment in time, at this particular moment, then there must be a pretty substantial reason, given the pressure from the masses the Russian imperialists are under. It would be our advice that the Russians take Doris Lessing's advice and "calm down" and think clearly what fools they are making of themselves at this moment, all to benefit worthless Gorbachev-era social-democrats.
And for the alleged Maoists of the world, we ask you where you would be if MIM took the stand the RCP=CIA was calling for with its "drive out the Bush regime" pablum? We ask them to have some discernment for once and insist that yes the imperialist country comrades can act for the independent interests of the international proletariat--without being appendages of the Democrats or Republicans.
Past and ongoing operations by the Russians and their stupid tails unbroken by a word from the international proletariat are the decisive reason for shutting down MIM operations. We said many times that people have to purge and put an emphasis on quality. They did not over years. Now some of the people who have delivered death threats to MIM are incapable of understanding the oblique flattery MIM has received without asking for. Had the people involved been of high and trustworthy quality, we would not have that situation. On the other hand, the Russians are also aware that Amerikans and other pseudo- Maoists do not conduct themselves in the manner of purges MIM has suggested, so they too know that they are continuously creating problems for MIM.
