category pretends to be anti-war

If MoveOn was genuinely anti-war, their current campaign would target all members of Congress who support the war. But it doesn’t, it only targets Republicans.

MoveOn is primarily a PAC that exists to raise money for Democrats. They say this on their About page, “ Political Action, one of the largest Political Action Committees in the country”

American Leftist explains who they are.

My hostility towards has primarily been because of its effort to prevent the emergence of a popular, mass based movement against the war in Iraq and, potentially, even US imperialism. Now, I have concluded that it serves an even more insidious purpose, the mobilization of people to participate in meaningless spectacles, based upon the assumption that radical political change is impossible.

More to the point, MoveOn wants to channel dissent and protest into the Democratic Party where it will be neutralized.
