Clay Claiborne, who I know from the anti-war days in L.A., details the pinheaded ANSWER Coalition and their physically blocking Libyans from entering their Libya forum. Yes, you read that right.
Because, you see, for PSL (the Marxist party that controls ANSWER), it always about them and nothing else. Further, if the US ever supports something, in the Manichean world of PSL it becomes instantly wrong. Always. Shades of gray are never permitted. And the other side must then automatically be supported. I can’t think of a better example of how the hard left has marginalized itself almost completely than this increasingly bizarre micro-cult. In practice, they are indistinguishable from the fanatic Christians they detest.
(I was in ANSWER then PSL for a bit. Got purged but was walking away from their Loony Tunes world anyway. “I used to be disgusted, but now I’m just amused.” Onward.)
