“This core [institutions] of the capitalist state cannot be reformed into a neutral body. It must be abolished by means of a revolution.” –Party for Socialism and Liberation, Group Behind “Pivot to Peace”
The self-proclaimed “revolutionary Marxist” Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) is behind “Pivot to Peace,” a pro-China grouping of prominent American communists calling for the United States to submit to China under the guise of promoting “peace.”
An online petition features such radical signatories as famous Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, Medea Benjamin of the pro-Venezuela organization Code Pink, radical film director Oliver Stone, self-described communist George Ciccariello-Maher who famously tweeted “[A]ll I want for Christmas is White Genocide,” and pro-North Korea Activist Christine Ahn just to name a few.
On their website, the PSL explains why they support abolishing the police, giving key insight into their goals.
The Party for Socialism and Liberation stands for the overthrow, dismantling and complete replacement of the core institutions of the capitalist state, which are the ‘special bodies of armed men,’ namely the police, prisons, military and courts. This core of the capitalist state cannot be reformed into a neutral body. It must be abolished by means of a revolution.
Considering that the PSL is behind the Pivot to Peace initiative, it is only logical to conclude that the goal of the movement is also ultimately to “overthrow” America as a “capitalist” state.
RAIR Foundation USA spoke with expert on subversive movements Trevor Loudon, who took a look at the list of communists who signed the petition, noting that in addition to the Party for Socialism and Liberation, several Marxist organizations were represented, such as the Freedom Road Socialist Organization, Workers World Party, Communist Party USA and the Democratic Socialists of America.
“These communist organizations are combining forces to support the Beijing line,” Loudon explained. Communist front groups pose as regular citizens but in this case are really just acting as puppets for the Chinese Communist Party. On their Twitter page, the PSL front “Pivot to Peace” claims to consist of “concerned Americans who have come together to oppose the United States’ drive towards aggression on China.”
By claiming to be for “peace” and “friendship” with China, the “Pivot to Peace” group seeks to undermine efforts being made by the United States to hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable.
As previously reported at RAIR Foundation USA, PSL “supports the communist governments of Cuba, Venezuela, China, Iran and North Korea.” They are often found agitating local communities such as in the case of the tragic death of Robert Fuller, 24, in California’s Antelope Valley, where the PSL pushed the vile false narrative that Fuller was lynched. His death was ultimately ruled as a suicide.
The ANSWER Coalition, which organizes anti-American protests, is also a front group for the PSL. During the Pivot to Peace inaugural webinar held earlier this month, the anti-American participants bashed America and praised China, parroting such propaganda like so-called “hate crimes” rising against Asian Americans, a claim that has been debunked at RAIR Foundation USA.
The Chinese propaganda was quickly picked up by a prominent Chinese Newspaper. The Pivot to Peace Twitter page quickly bragged about the exposure.
At what point does communist subversion and agitation become treason?
