Edward Epstein one of the few scholars who recognizes and writes about the Communists in America said the US Communist Party is run by the FBI. That makes sense. The elite in Cambridge MA are clueless as these Chicago protesters. It was the same pattern in New York City and at Columbia University in the late 1960s. The violence came from police embedded in the protest movement.
Last night during the tent city construction at Occupy Chicago on Michigan Ave, John Bachtell, a spokesperson from the national board of the Communist Party U.S.A., addressed the angry mob of nearly 3000. He claimed to “bring greetings and support” from the party, to the occupy movement. Bachtell received a very warm welcome and overwhelming applause form the “occupiers.”
