On September 7th, 2020, fascist president of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte granted an absolute pardon to a US-imperialist soldier in the 2014 murder of a trans woman, Jennifer Laude. The pardon serves as a reversal of policy for Duterte, who had previously promised to not release the murderer, Joseph Scott Pendleton. This has drawn the justified rage of the Laude family, the broad masses (particularly the LGBT masses), and even from some bourgeois politicians. This absolute pardon was criticized by Kabataan Makabayan, part of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, as “the latest in a long list of acts … Continue reading Justice for Jennifer Laude! Struggle for proletarian feminism against imperialism and transmisogyny!
Comrade Toussaint “Cadre” is a word that is bounced around a lot, but many don’t grasp its true meaning. The Chinese word for cadre is “ganbu”, which roughly translates to “backbone personnel”. This is how we should view ourselves – backbone personnel of the revolution, essential workers if you will. The categories below, I believe, sum up the essence of a good Maoist cadre and the type of Party worker that the MCP-OC needs to lay a firm foundation for the MCP in the future.

The Democratic Party is divided and split. There is a center-social democratic wing, and a right wing. The centrist wing, which can not appropriately be called a “Left”, is represented by Bernie Sanders. His policies and rhetoric are a blend of old New Deal and new DSA social democracy. Joe Biden is an out and out, rabid imperialist and racist whose record in the Senate is scarred with such things as opposition to busing for racial equity and support for de facto segregation. The Democrats, we know, can not be Socialists. To be a Socialist means being a Communist. There are no Communists in the Democratic Party. There are, however, many people that claim to be Communists who, for whatever reason, continue to maintain belief in the electoral system. We see these politics as petit-bourgeois nihilism, cynicism, alarmism and rightist pragmatism. Continue reading What Happened On Super Tuesday? A Maoist Analysis of the 2020 Electoral Cycle.
