Have there been any new developments in the CPUSA? Last time I checked a year ago Sam the moronic dictator was still running the party with his "piggy back ride the democrats" strategy. I wouldn't give up on the CPUSA though, as the name itself powerfully evokes Communism much more so than the more obscure albeit respected organizations like the PSL.

Here at the PSL, we're working on getting some International recognition for the party through various methods which wont be disclosed at the moment. I think international recognition will come as we become more established as a party. Lately I heard Bragation, call us a 'leftist sect', only for the reason that the communist party of france had formal "relations" with the CPUSA. The fact that the CPUSA plays the role of the "default" communist party is quite unfortunate since the party has many openly revisionist tendencies which should be unacceptable for a marxist organization such as the fact that they have supported a Comprador Bourgeois politician. The CPUSA also carries too many negative connotations to be successful, but the PSL has a blank sheet to start with: we're new and we're revolutionary. I find the "rehabilitation" policies of the CPUSA to be pathetic.

The CPUSA was just interviewed on Russia Today

Allen West told his constituents last week that Communists are running amok in the halls of Congress. What should West - and the rest of Americans - know about the real role of the Communist Party in America? Libero Della Piana - Vice Chairman of Communist Party USA joins Thom Hartmann.

What i have heard from the "far left" in America is that the CPUSA is considered a joke of a "revolutionary" party....
Post 17 May 2012, 03:16
Where did you hear far left? They're not a revolutionary party and do not pretend to be. They're social-democrat Eurocommunists.

Thats why i said the far left in America generally sees them as a joke...

Naw they're not a joke. They're a threat. A liberal organization with a red mask. It's the tiny splinter parties that are a joke.

The battle inside the CPUSA is an ongoing battle.

Read this article by E. Drummond to get a view of the situation and the critical points raised against the current Webb-clique leadership:

Wow that's even worse that I'd imagined.

The struggle inside every party for ideological unity - on the basis of marxism-leninism and proletarian internationalism - is an ongoing struggle.
The struggle inside the international communist movement as a whole is the same as the above-mentioned struggle in the different parties.
These two things are organically linked with each other.

The struggle inside the CPUSA have gotten much attention inside the international communist movement.

I wish the loyal members and supporters of the CPUSA good luck in their struggle to thwart the and reverse the liquidationist line of the so-called "Webb-clique".

i am dissapointed with them...
my support to PSL for the time being , but i hope for a comeback

Lets hope for the future of the US working class movement and the international communist movement that a genuine revolutionary CPUSA is to be found in the nearest future, in one or another way and form!

I think that while the CPUSA might have put their Marxist-Leninism on the shelf, they have not cast it into the rubbish bin. I think that they base their policy upon this passage, from the Communist Manifesto. http://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1848/communist-manifesto/ch04.htm Unlike, in Europe, where one can actually vote for a multitude of parties, we Americans only have two viably strong parties, for the most part. So a number of comrades have decided to support entryism within a big tent party. Which in the U.S.A. , would be the Democratic Party. Not that persons such as myself do not sometimes vote for candidates from other parties. I for instance have voted for Dan La Botz. But then, I'm not a Communist Party member either. Interestingly though, some Communists have not only voted for Democratic candidates, in the primary, as well as general elections, but have even ran for public office as Democrats. http://blog.cleveland.com/metro/2009/09/cleveland_council_candidate_ri.html

I don't really like them. They are for some things I am against. Of course, I'm not really communist. I favor more of a Stalinist socialism approach. For example, they are in favor of Affirmative Action, which I think is racist against white people. The same thing goes for women when they already have more opportunities than men do. They also want green energy initiatives, which I am completely against. I favor more nuclear power. I'm voting for Emperor Bounaparte for President, haha. He is really running for office, and I seriously think he'd do as well as anyone considering every other candidate is terrible.

Thee are a growing number of comrades within the party that are opposing the revisionism and right-opportunism within the CPUSA - Ideological Fightback (http://www.ideologicalfightback.com) and the Committee to Save the CPUSA (http://www.savethecpusa.blogspot.com) are comprised of former and current members nationwide that are working to take the party back.

Despite i agree with them, is the creation of such sites a legal mean to fight revisionism within a party?
Okay former members can do as they please but the principles of CPUSA doesnt oppose such moves?

There has been left no other avenues open to us for opposing the revisionists. They have been purging any member that opposes them - over 70 members in the last 10 years have been purged by the Webb faction.
Democratic Centralism supposes democratic process within the party. The Webb faction has suppressed democratic discussion at the convention and censored any other views but their own. They have even gone so far as to call in undercover cops to arrest dissident members from attending the convention. And an equal principle to Democratic Centralism is the principle of Self-Criticism. If this is not in place, then Democratic Centralism has no basis of functioning.
We must take back the party by ANY means necessary. Lenin did not allow the Mensheviks to rule, and neither should we.

thanks for your explanation, i cant do much from here but being sympathise to your struggle
whats PSL attitude towards the fight between marxists and revisionists within the Party?

The PSL has not made any specific comments that I am aware of - they did oppose Obama and ran a candidate of their own in the last election, which if I had been able to vote for her, I would have. However, the PSL also has deep Trotskyite roots, and their leadership holds Trotsky study groups in their cadre training. Also, the PSL's platform, while good, focuses too much on identity politics, and has very little connection to Labor.
