I Support These Troops
Yeah, yeah, yeah. According to the current big- frog- in- a small- pond leftist tribalism common in the U.S.A. today, I should have nothing to do with these guys, since they are " Stalinists" and I'm a " Trotskyite".
Fuck that noise. These veterans actually fought fascism. They put their asses on the line to fight fascism. Literally. How many of us can make that claim?
George Orwell, who fought as a militiaman for the Marxist- Leninist party P.O.U.M., wrote in Homage To Catalonia ( his justly famous memoir of the Spanish Civil War), " The P.S.U.C. ( the Moscow approved Communist Party of Spain) militiamen I whom I knew in the line, the Communists from the International Brigade whom I met from time to time, never called me a Trotskyist or a traitor; they left that kind of thing to the journalists in the rear."
Please contribute to the Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives and help these veterans continue the good fight.
