My Experiences with PCUSA From 2012 To 2018

Comrade Peter Korman.

 

October 12, 2018

In 2012, after being a member of the original Communist Party USA for around 6 to 9 months, a lot of us felt that we were not getting what we were promised by the history of that organization. We found the clubs were quickly dwindling and there were several ideological differences among members. However; it must be noted that throughout this entire six year epoch, all the members of the Communist Party USA were never directly rude to other members who dissented and they did not result to the extremely underhanded tactics that will be mentioned later in this treatise.

One of the problems with Communist Party USA at the time was that it was hard to reach anybody by phone and figure out who your states district organizer was.

 One day I was searching on the Internet trying to find somebody to get a hold of. I ran across a website labeling itself the NCC or National Council of Communists. I called this number and spoke directly with their chairman and acting general secretary. I found out that this group was an open faction within the Communist Party USA which called for a return to a hard Marxist-Leninist line as well as more democratizing of the Communist Party USA. This faction originally consisted of eight members, and I must admit was at the time exactly what I was looking for.

 It was an organization that listen to each of its members and would have open discussions on a weekly basis about their views on how to supposedly reform the Communist Party USA. There were also open-ended discussions on Marxist-Leninist theory as well as past experiences of the older comrades who had grown up in the CP USA. We would also have open-ended discussions of direct experiences of visiting the Soviet Union, experiences of other countries etc. etc. we were able to form the human connections that everyone desires when joining any type of club while also contributing to a Marxist-Leninist struggle. We were even able to form our own youth league after CP USA disbanded their youth league. The youth league was originally chaired by a vibrant and charismatic young woman. There could’ve been no better choice as a face for a youth league than this woman. Her charismatic enthusiasm could draw anybody into any conversation. In my experience she was the best person for the position.

 The NCC, along with its youth league grew rapidly due to the massive amounts of democracy and care that each member was given to have their views heard. We still upheld Marxism Leninism though. Because when decisions were made they were carried out as a law and will of the collective. I felt as if we had created and were creating the most democratic Leninist option on the left. We also had our own publishing house.

 However; around 2015 problems began to appear.

It began in late 2014 or early 2015. The young charismatic woman who was the chair of the league was forced out after bizarre harassment by cointelpro type agitators who were frightening her. I immediately realized that we were going to have a problem. At certain stages some individuals and the skills that they bring to the table are in disposable and cannot be lost under any circumstances.

 Having knowledge of operational securities and various types of military structures having grown up in a military family. I immediately motioned that we start using these techniques to ensure the safety of our members, and to ensure that they could keep their positions and posts as they were again the only people capable of doing their jobs.

 We could not lose them.

 However; my motions and arguments were in vain.

 Our young charismatic leader of the youth was frightened off by these people. And the older leadership in their 60s and 70s of the newly formed Party of Communists USA. Did nothing to realize that they had lost indispensable members and indispensable powers.

 What then followed was a secession of inept and uncaring rude youth leaders that would cause the youth project fallen extreme disrepute and become dead in the water multiple times never recovering.

 The experience of the youth league would prove as a exact foil and a mirror to the destruction and dissolution of the PCUSA four years later in 2018.

 I must be honest in saying that problems further continued with inept leadership of the league in around 2017 at the world Festival of youth and students in Sochi Russia. One of the revolving door of inept league leaders was being very rude to the other two members of the delegation that are league sent to the 100 year anniversary Festival of the great October revolution in Sochi Russia. These problems were reported to the Political Bureau or Steering Committee of the party. And it was asked that this individual be dealt with in a proper manner. However; I can attest that a year went by and nothing was done. Things were swept under the rug. Again this will come to serve as a mirror for the final deathblow that occurred earlier this month. This inept leader was allowed to stay in his position and gloat about his supposedly successes in an organization he devoted nothing to.

 Around two or three weeks ago, things were going as they normally did we all had a phone conference which was an educational on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and an experience of a member of the Communist Party of Great Britain Marxist-Leninist there. He was nice enough to call us at 130 in the morning his time in order to have an educational with us in the United States. Again things were going well. No one knew of the problems that were being hidden from the cadre that it built the party with over $8000 of our collective monies.

 Two days later, problems would hit all of us like an uncontrolled tornado.

 All of a sudden, on a Friday about three weeks ago meetings that were always opened all party members were suddenly voted closed and there was supposed to be a special meeting of the political Bureau or steering committee that was to be closed to all other members. I had been a member of the steering committee since the beginning when the organization was still called the National Council of Communists.

 At this meeting, there was a vote to impeach a steering committee member for supposedly anti-trans phobic statements. There were eight yeses and four dissents. And so a week later this “trial” and “impeachment.” would commence. The four members who had dissented against the identity politics and Internet lingo mumbo-jumbo that is to be found nowhere in Marxist literature from Marx to Sartre were thrown off phone calls that they legally had the right to be on and simply cut off from all leading membership. It was at this point that certain things were discovered, it was found that the entire treasury which again amounted to $8000 of everyone’s collective dues and money had been emptied out for sex orgies, were straight party members were attempted to be pressured into unwanted sexual acts. When they refused they were set upon by certain individuals who identified themselves as transgender. The money was spent on prostitutes and what was recently revealed to be large amounts of Heroin and prescription painkillers that were more than likely used intravenously.

 What again is to be noted here and which I personally note is that this identity politics dealing with sexual preferences and bizarre Internet lingo that is only around nine years old and has never entered into serious scientific discourse has nothing to do with the set of data and scientific theorems and modeling known as Marxism or Marxism Leninism. This is not what we signed up for or paid for. Those of us who dissented against these orgies and drug binges being held at our expense were called and threatened to be beaten to death by a man calling himself “Austin James” who hid behind a blocked number. Financial impropriety and threats of violence were deal breakers for a lot of us. And seeing Marxism Leninism discarded in favor of Internet mumbo-jumbo and bizarre meaning neologisms was completely shocking. It should be noted that the one who was doing the threatening was “Alexander Iokaste” along with At this meeting, there was a vote to impeach a steering committee member for supposedly anti-trans phobic statements.

Shivaani had changed her to to “Vani Inkaami” to avoid detection due to several sexual misconduct issues with Students for a Democratic Society and Freedom Road Socialist Organization in 2012.

 I would like to conclude by stating that all of these were mere red herrings and distractions from the actual thesis and work of Marx and his contemporaries as well as those who would follow him from Lenin to Che Guevara. Identity politics is an Internet myth that can be proven to be an invented tradition as stated by anthropologists Hobsbawm and Ranger 2. These non sequitur and red herrings are false arguments and logical fallacies. They can be proven to be nowhere near the set of scientific data and historical modeling that is known as Marxism. If they wish to be discussed, it should not be in a Marxism or Marxism Leninism club but rather in a pop psychology club. These invented traditions of the Internet will do nothing but destroy and divide left-wing social movements.
