The unrepentant pro-terrorist and pro imperialist US ‘Leftist’, Louis Proyect

images-47— One of the saddest happenings of my lifetime has been to observe the complete Far Rightward slide of much of the ex-American Trotskyist Movement, that during my youth had been the strongest builders of the Antiwar Movement during the Vietnam War era. None more epitomizes that Rightward slide downward into oblivion than the guy who actually has marketed himself beginning years ago in the past, as supposedly being Louis Proyect: The (last) Unrepentant Marxist. However, today he now states that the time he spent as a marxist once building the huge demonstrations against the Vietnam War were all just so inconsequential and negative doings, as being nothing more or less than just being a wasted portion of his life! And worse yet, he, in his elder years (’60s), is now trying to build the idea that supporting the Pentagon’s current multiple war making projects in the Middle East is all so progressive, marxist, and totally all a very radical thing to do! Christ!

Sadly, many other remnants and lost souls of the former coherent English speaking Trotskyist Movement trail along beside and behind Louis Proyect, enabling him in his increasingly counter revolutionary ideological work. They remain silently present and participating on his ‘discussion groups’, as he censors off all and any opposition to his idea that being pro-imperialist, as he has now turned himself into being, might be the exact opposite of actually being marxist. They degrade themselves by belonging and participating in the same counterrevolutionary camp as Proyect, by remaining silent about Louis’s penchant for censorship of viewpoints counter to his own. It is really quite disgraceful but yet most seem not to see it… They simply follow ‘the leader’ as any good STALINIST would.

Today, with the announcement of the news of the US backed Syrian ‘rebels’ most recent terrorist attack (this time on a mosque!), Louis was busy on his 3 blogs, announcing his support for these D.C. promoted and armed thugs once again. He supports the further arming of the US backed counter revolutionary forces being used first against Gaddafi in Libya, now against Assad in Syria, and potentially in the quite near future against the current government in Iran. See Proyect’s Side with Syria’s Oppressed: An Interview with Mohamed Khairullah published on his blog ‘North Star’, which was set up by him and some fellow pro US imperialist fake Lefties expressly to push for ‘marxist’ support of Obama’s imperialist agendas in the Mid East. Here is also news of the recent use of yet more terrorism in Syria by those he promotes… Syrian suicide bombing in mosque kills top pro-Assad Sunni preacher and 41 other people

Proyect, and his collaborating and censorious cohorts like Pham Binh, claim that allying forces with NATO and the Pentagon to overthrow their own governments is revolution in progress, a bizarre idea indeed. In doing such, their activism mirrors the past renouncing of revolutionary theory by the infamous Karl Kautsky, who was once known as the ‘Pope of Marxism’, who rejected voting against war credits that supported the German military in its WW1 activities. Kautsky threw international solidarity to the wind in favor of supporting the capitalist ruing class of his own imperialist country in its war efforts, something which Louis Proyect is doing once again actively today. One could easily enough label Louis Proyect’s work as neo-Kautskyite, because it is pro imperialist in like manner as Kautsky turned to being in his own positions during WW1.

It would be bad enough if Proyect was alone in his Rightward turn, but instead he is representative of the RightWard drift of most of the former Trotskyist Movement. He is part of a slide into supporting pro capitalist forces, supporting pro imperialism war making, and wanting to organize into Left Social Democratic form, for many of these former Trotskyists. Proyect is representative of
the demise of the former Trotskyist Far Left in the English speaking countries, if not also in the entire rest of the world. It is sad to see such a legacy totally washing itself down the drain, same as the marxist leaders of China and the former Soviet Union have done as well.

Unknown-30

The above is a picture of a much younger Louis Proyect than he is now. Where did he stumble into becoming his complete opposite? It’s like asking where Joe Stalin went wrong? From a comrade for the biggest builder of the antiwar movement, to sent ‘revolutionary tourist’ in Nicaragua, now into turning into a loud pro imperialist ‘Left’ mouthpiece of the Pentagon…. such is the sad life road of Supreme Misleader Louis Proyect.

Louis Proyect is nauseating. If you want to know what the actual, official, “deep government” posture of the US state Department, CIA, army intelligence and IMF is at any given time, before its hit the mainstream on any given subject, just check out what Looey has to say about it. He is a such an Imperialist fraud that, in my opinion, he must be an employee of the CIA, FBI and the WTFRUSRUS? IMHO hes obviously a plant – I know, I know your not supposed to say it. It makes you look crazy right? – and its undignified – well I have no dignity, I don’t care who thinks im crazy and im perfectly willing to just GIVE the bastard the satisfaction, know what I mean? This clown Proyect makes me sick. if he ever had actually held a MARXIST opinion about ANYTHING I might give him the benefit – but at his blog he shills relentlessly for every single imperialist campaign, aggression, atrocity and intervention like he was the white house press agent or something -LIKE CLOCK WORK. If it looks like shit, smells like shit, talks walks and writes like shit, its probably shit, right? Fuck you, looey. Your the problem.
