    Hey doesn’t it seem like what’s going on in Thailand was the same thing that happened in October 2013? Except without the ruling Leftist party calling the protesters “terrorists” and “anarchists”.

    The Workers’ World Party backs the “opposition” in Cambodia to the ruling “former” Communists:

    Did a former Bulgarian Prime Minister blurt out what his “former” Communist comrades want? He admits that he wants a true Leftist party in charge:

    After all he is a “former” Bulgarian Communist….

    Looks like “former” Communists in Eastern Europe are stealing credit card numbers:

    One wonders if they are funneling the money electronically to Occupy Wall Street and other far left causes to cause riots in the West. After all the Communist Party USA is still expanding its doors how are they able to expand and who is flipping the bill?

    Workers’ World Party agrees with “former” Communist Vladimir Putin in celebrating the legacy of a dead Communist well known for creating a rifle named after him and the Reds claim they’re for gun control:
