In the wake of the Atlanta Massage Parlor massacre last month, mainstream media outlets Yahoo News and USA Today highlighted a group of “protesters” tied to U.S. designated foreign terror group “Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army” responsible for tens of thousands of deaths. The protest was ostensibly to mourn the victims, but it was really about communist revolution.
The gathering was organized by the “Total Liberation Collective,” which demands social justice education in schools and seeks to dismantle the police. WTOP News, a local D.C. news outlet, posted a video of the group chanting in front of a flag that declared “From DC to the Philippines, Stop the US War Machine”. They screamed “Disband the ALU [Metropolitan Police Departments Asian Liaison Unit]”, “Pigs in a Blanket, Fry ’em Like Bacon”, and “Cops and the Klan Go Hand in Hand.”
The media was uninterested in the flag prominently displayed at the event, which featured the word “ANAKBAYAN”.
Anakbayan-USA is a militant Marxist-Leninist organization aligned with the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army, a designated foreign terrorist organization that continues to be in the news for killing innocent people on a regular basis. Anakbayan-USA admires the genocidal late dictator Mao Zedong, who terrorized and murdered millions of his own citizens through the Cultural Revolution.
Their goal, as described at a Brown University blog post, is to “form transnational networks” with other communist movements across the globe, where they can “share organizing strategies and build coalitions that resist global capitalism.” Young American communists have brought delegations to the Philippines to strengthen ties with the terror organization.
The post continues:
Anakbayan-USA is exemplary of this—where youth and students in the United States actively build solidarity with the people of the Philippines. The group continues the work for National Democracy in the Philippines—a movement led by Marxist-Maoist-Leninist Jose Maria Sison, leader who founded the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) in 1968.
According to a Stanford University Program called “Mapping Militant Organizations,”
“The Communist Party of the Philippines–New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) seeks to overthrow the Philippine government in favor of a new state led by the working class and to expel U.S. influence from the Philippines.”
On their homepage, Anakbayan-USA prominently features a quote from Jose Maria Sison [also known as Joma Sison], the Maoist founder of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army.
According to an article in the Manila Times, the New People’s Army is responsible for butchering 50,000 citizens and “13,000 soldiers and policemen”. It should be noted that one organization is fighting back against the communists in the Philippines, and RAIR Foundation USA wishes them well.
As reported at RAIR, radical leftist groups and even terror organizations are regularly given a platform by the mainstream media, who happily regurgitates their propaganda. Currently, the militant left is pushing a complete fabrication about anti-Asian hate crimes being perpetrated by white supremacists in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
