We must be intolerant of intolerance

Posted on October 18, 2011 by


There was apparently a major ruckus within the SPUSA clique. Rumor has it that Eric Chester and Marc Luzietti announced they are becoming ex-SPUSAers. While it cannot be confirmed right now what led to their departure, it can be speculated that it had something to do with the nomination of Stewart Alexander as Greg Pason’s hand-picked “Lost Cause” presidential candidate.

What makes this so intriguing is the profile picture of facebook poster Marxist Chavizta has Stewart Alexander’s image. Why is this so intriguing? Marxist Chavizta advocates violence. Specifically, Marxist Chavista advocated the bombing of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

If Stewart Alexander is, in fact, Marxist Chavizta, Eric Chester and Marc Luzietti were prudent in refusing to associate with such a violent person. And, socialists should demand the revocation of Alexander’s nomination. If Stewart Alexander is, in fact, not Marxist Chavizta, he should file a complaint with facebook to ban Marxist Chavizta.

It does not matter what personal differences individuals within the socialist community has with one another. We must all be united in our intolerance of the intolerant.
