Comrade Redbeard and Comrade Toussaint The US-led effort in Afghanistan collapsed with a pathetic whimper on Sunday, with the entry of Taliban forces into Kabul, the nation’s capital, the flight of puppet President Ashraf Ghani to Tajikistan, and the Vietnam-esque images of helicopters taking off from the roof of the (former) US Embassy. According to US officials, American soldiers have shot two supposedly armed men … Continue reading Lifting a Rock to Drop It On One’s Own Feet: On the Failed US Mission in Afghanistan
FTP-Chicago Patriarchal violence, while not unique to imperialist capitalism, is one of its foundational tools, and is integral to its perpetuation.

I.) On the International Situation US imperialism, the number one threat to continued existence of humanity, continues to sow war and coup plots the world over. This is to be expected, the enemy will remain the enemy. When we speak of imperialism, we of course also speak of what Nkrumah called “the last stage” of imperialism, which is neocolonialism. Lenin defines imperialism as, essentially, the … Continue reading It Won’t Stop Until We Stop It: Joint International Workers’ Day 2021 Statement From 10 FTP Chapters
Comrade Val To say that “Stonewall was a riot” has become something of a cliche in the last ten years amongst LGBT people. What began as an earnest attempt to re-inject some radical energy into a community that had long been co-opted for empire has now become as meaningless and co-opted as the rainbow flag itself. Figures such as Marsha P Johnson and Silvia Rivera, … Continue reading Faerie Fire — On Revolutionary Queer History: Part One

FTP-Twin Cities Another election, another war-mongering imperialist elected to the highest office of the so-called united states. The dictatorship of the bourgeoisie remains in power, prolonging its parasitic existence. Biden and Harris will maintain the colonies (both internal and external) of this country. The military will continue dropping bombs and terrorizing the world abroad, while funding other States which support such campaigns of terror and … Continue reading So, The Election Spectacle is Over. Now What?
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”.

The categories below, I believe, sum up the essence of a good Maoist cadre and … Continue reading What Makes A Good Maoist?
