By no means is Iran CMA’s only concern. Bitterly condemning America’s continuing presence in Afghanistan, the organization participated in a recent rally not only calling for a swift U.S. withdrawal from the region, but also suggesting that the original decision to invade in 2001 was itself a gesture largely aimed at placating the Israel lobby. This rally was co-sponsored by the aforementioned America-hating radical groups, along with such additional left-wing stalwarts as the American Friends Service Committee, the Democratic Socialists of America, the Chicago Socialist Party, the Freedom Road Socialist Organization, the International Socialist Organization, Students for a Democratic Society, and Occupy Chicago (an affiliate of the Occupy Wall Street movement).
Further, Chicago Mass Action impugns America’s “unlawful” establishment of the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center, where, according to CMA, prisoners are routinely tortured. A key ally in this anti-Guantanamo campaign is the Catholic Worker Movement, which, lo and behold, advocates U.S. disarmament and derides capitalism as an irredeemably unjust economic system that sows “spiritual destitution” into America’s cultural soil.
The next target in CMA’s crosshairs will be a major gathering of military and financial leaders from around the world, scheduled for May 19-22 in Chicago. Specifically, the conference will consist of representatives from NATO (which CMA disparages as a “U.S.-commanded and largely U.S.-financed” alliance), along with political leaders and finance ministers of the G-8 world economic powers. CMA and its usual allies plan to stage a massive May 19 protest against this event, simultaneously railing against the two things which the Left hates most: the U.S. military and the unequal distribution of wealth across the globe. While the stated purpose of the protest is to advance the cause of “peace” and “economic justice,” the real objective is to do precisely what all leftist rallies spearheaded by communists are designed to do: thoroughly discredit America, its culture, and its economic system—in hopes of fomenting enough popular discontent to advance the journey toward a new socialist paradise.
