Gun Control? Not for the working class!

Dear Comrades,

The lack of activity on this blog is not a failiure on the part of Party leadership, it is a failure of the cadre. The Central Commitee of the Nightmare Communist Party is infallible, as we all know.

Comment must be made, however, in light of continued rightward vector of political discourse in the United States.

Barack Obama, for all the fanfare on the right of being a "socialist", is, in termsof policy enacted, far to the right of that great bastion of American liberalism, Richard Nixon.

(If you don't recognize the satire in the previous graph, expect a ticket to the salt mines).

Although they were deviationists who held out hopeless hope for a libertatarian alternative, the Friends of Durruti had one thing right: What we need is a program, and rifles.

The current debate on gun control is yet another attempt by the bourgeois hegemony to disarm the only threat they can reasonably imagine breaking their stranglehold on political power: an armed and organized working class.

"The arming of the whole proletariat with rifles, guns, and ammunition should be carried out at once [and] the workers must ... organize themselves into an independent guard, with their own chiefs and general staff. ... [The aim is] that the bourgeois democratic Government not only immediately loses all backing among the workers, but from the commencement finds itself under the supervision and threats of authorities behind whom stands the entire mass of the working class. ...As soon as the new Government is established they will commence to fight the workers.  In order that this party (i.e., the democrats) whose betrayal of the workers will begin with the first hour of victory, should be frustrated in its nefarious work, it is necessary to organize and arm the proletariat." - Karl Marx, Address to the Communist League (1850)
Gun control is a bourgeois prejudice, and must be resisted by all means, by force if necessary. So what if 20, 30, 300 schoolchildren die at the hands of a maniac? How many workers die ever year, or are forced to starvation, or are economically raped, by the maniacs who own and control the means of production?

Guns for the workers! Bullets for the bourgeoisie! Rise up, and down your oppressors!

Kill them all, and let God sort them out.

Remember, comrades: when we have each other, we are never alone.

Now back to work, comrade.
