We have watched for many weeks now as our cities have been rocked by massive “protests” and violence. We have heard assurances that law enforcement and intelligence agencies will get to the bottom of who is orchestrating this and exactly what is happening.
In point of fact, that is not how this is supposed to work. We are supposed to be warned in advance and told what is about to happen and who is planning it. That’s the entire point of maintaining our giant intelligence apparatus.
So, let’s try that. Let’s take a look into the future.
A group calling itself the Coalition to March on the RNC Jax has filed for permission to stage a giant protest timed to coincide with the upcoming Republican National Convention (RNC) in Jacksonville, Florida. This coalition is what is known in intelligence circles as a “front organization,” in this case – a paper-thin one. Similar such fronts with virtually identical names have been used multiple times before, including in connection with a March on the RNC in 2016.
The purpose of this front is to give the false impression that what is about to happen in Jacksonville is an event organized by local citizens and “concerned parties.” It is to make it appear that what is happening is spontaneous. It is to hide the truth that a single entity behind the scenes is pulling the strings.
In order to identify what entity that might be, let’s take a look at the key individuals involved with the planned march in Jacksonville and with previous similar events:
Sampson is affiliated with the Jacksonville Community Action and has been involved with efforts to tear down statues and monuments in recent weeks. More importantly, Sampson is a member of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) and a frequent writer for the FRSO’s online publication “Fight Back”.
Also a member of the FRSO. His home was searched in 2010 by the FBI in connection with allegations of involvement in domestic terrorism. Burke has traveled to Venezuela to meet with Communist Party officials there. He has also been alleged to have had contact with Palestinian groups.
A Wisconsin based FRSO leader.
Kelly is the editor of the FRSO’s online newspaper “Fight Back” and the leader of the FRSO in Minnesota. His home was searched in 2010 as part of the FBI investigation of the alleged involvement of the FRSO in domestic terrorism. In 2009 he wrote a paper entitled “Continuing the Revolution is Not a Dinner Party.” That paper was a justification of the actions of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) at Tiananmen Square wherein as many as 10,000 pro-democracy protesters were killed.
So, what exactly is the FRSO – the organization that appears to be the force behind the upcoming march?
The FRSO was founded in 1985 as an alliance of the remaining members of a long list of Maoist revolutionary movements including the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), the Weathermen, Revolutionary Communist Party, League of Revolutionary Struggle, Communist Party USA (Marxist-Leninist) and the Communist Workers Party. As a Maoist group, the FRSO – from the outset – focused heavily on racial and minority issues and the exploitation of racial and ethnic grievances as tools for the advancement of revolutionary change.
In 1999, the FRSO split. One portion of the group is now known as Liberation Road. The FRSO itself is particularly strong in the Midwest and in a number of major cities. The group openly supports China and North Korea and has been shown to have ties to Palestinian terrorist groups in the past. At least four FRSO delegations have traveled to Venezuela in the last year alone.
The FRSO expressly rejects attempting to seek reform or change through the electoral process. Its statement of June 12, 2020 on its own website does a masterful job of capturing the revolutionary Marxist nature of its agenda and its intentions.
“The time is now to join a revolutionary organization! Join Freedom Road Socialist Organization!
If you have been out in the streets this past few weeks, the odds are good that you’ve been thinking about the difference between the kind of change this system has to offer, and the kind of change this country needs. Capitalism is a failed system that thrives on exploitation, inequality, and oppression.
The reactionary and racist Trump administration has made the pandemic worse. The unfolding economic crisis we are experiencing is the worst since the 1930s. Monopoly capitalism is a dying system and we need to help finish it off. And that is exactly what Freedom Road Socialist Organization is working for…
We need revolution. A revolution where the wealthy are divested of their riches and rule of the working class is established – socialism. As it stands, the United States is a jailhouse for the oppressed…
Revolutionary change takes revolutionaries and revolutionaries need organization. Our rulers are well-organized – so we need to be too. Freedom Road Socialist Organization is a multinational organization. Our members are African American, Chicanos and Latinos, white, and Native Americans. Every successful revolution has at its core an organization that could unite the many to defeat the few. It has been done elsewhere and it can be done here too.
Freedom Road Socialist Organization is a Marxist-Leninist organization. We are reds and proud of it. Be it China, Russia, Cuba, or any other country where the rule of capital was brought to an end, revolutionaries employing Marxism-Leninism were at the forefront. We are serious about winning…
It’s like Karl Marx said, we have nothing to lose but our chains. And we have a world to win.FRSO website
So, on Thursday, August 27, 2020, there will be a protest march and demonstration in downtown Jacksonville. That event will be billed as a gathering of freedom-loving Americans expressing their opposition to the reelection of President Trump. It will likely also be portrayed as such by much of what passes for the news media.
It will, in fact, be nothing of the kind. It will be a deliberate effort by
individuals fully dedicated to the destruction of the existing political, economic and social order to achieve what they proudly proclaim as “revolutionary change.” The organizers of this event – which will most certainly include the massive destruction of private property and attacks on the police – may hide behind their slogans, “We Can’t Breathe,” “Stop Police Crimes,” and “Peace, Justice, and Equality for All!”
It will not matter. Call it what you will. This is Mao’s March on Jacksonville.
