Their petition circulation effort drew major support on social media in the days after the initial protests in Cuba, helping to stitch together a left-reinforcement to the edifice of the mainstream press, which described the event as an uprising by “political dissidents” against an “oppressive bureaucratic regime” in the pursuit of democracy and freedom of expression. The definition of “freedom” pursued and the political orientation of the protesters in question differed between the tales spun by the New York Times and those of the Socialist Worker, but the story was the same: Repressive government arbitrarily detains political dissidents.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—You can always count on the less reality-anchored pundits to say out loud what the rest are thinking in private. Support for internet censorship is now a mainstream position among the so-called “moderates” of the warmongering corporatist Democratic Party, not just for people to their right but for people to their left as well. If it were up to these freaks the entire internet would just be a bunch of Wall Street liberals agreeing with each other that Trump is bad and Jen Psaki is a strong yet sensual warrior princess.
The Emma Vigeland tweet that Dore was riffing on in the clip was more hand-wringing about a “red-brown alliance” that all grown adults should realize by now was never anything other than a narrative management campaign to keep leftists from moving too far from the establishment-authorized Overton window of acceptable opinion.

Powerful videos for activists, revealing the indecency and betrayals of the Democratic party leaders, and why the duopoly must be rejected and eliminated. Jimmy also deconstructs the Obama myth, showing that, as a loyal servant of the oligarchy and therefore an efficient frontman and manager for the US empire, he also presided over a regime of appalling criminality and social reactionism. And what’s more, although a bit dulled, the myth continues. Some people never learn. Or simply refuse the truth as too painful.

There are now almost 100,000 members of the Democratic Socialists of America. Because of this, the author of a critical biography of its founder is timely. The criticisms of Harrington are overwhelmingly true of the DSA today. Its anti-communism drives it to still support the Democratic Party in spite of the fact the party today is far more right-wing than it was in Harrington’s day. In Harrington’s day supporting Palestine was considered antisemitic. DSA’s support of Palestine today is more the effect of the brutal Israeli policy for decades than an internal change of heart on the part of DSA. —Bruce Lerro, Socialist Planning Beyond Capitalism

FERNANDO LAFOURCADE—Observe the barrage of disinformation served up by capitalist media as part of Washington’s effort to overthrow the Cuban government. The key point here is that, yes, there are protests in Cuba, but these protests occur on account of (largely) precisely the highly difficult economic conditions created by the US blockade, unperturbed for 60 years, despite repeated near-unanimous UN resolutions condemning the US-imposed sanctions. In fact at this point even most of Washington’s European lapdogs have voted against this illegal embargo, and that includes the super poodle, the UK. The only nations still voting to maintain the embargo are now the US and Israel.
