Refuse Fascism is the umbrella organization behind all Antifa groups nationwide. Refuse Fascism was created by, among others, the Revolutionary Communist Party of the United States. That group seeks the overthrow of the existing political, economic and social order in the United States and its replacement with the “dictatorship of the proletariat.”
Refuse Fascism is funded by the Alliance for Global Justice (AGJ) a group that traces its routes to something called the Nicaragua Network an organization, which supported the Sandinistas’ Communist takeover of Nicaragua. The AGJ has not limited itself to support for Marxists in Nicaragua, however. It has championed the interests of Marxist revolutionaries in Cuba, El Salvador, and across Latin America.
That includes Venezuela.
In fact, the AGJ continues to this day to support Venezuelan strongman Nicolas Maduro and his murderous regime. As the people of Venezuela have descended into poverty and Maduro has ruthlessly suppressed all opposition the AGJ has continued its unwavering support for this despot. The group has defended the thugs ruling over the once-prosperous nation of Venezuela from all criticism, including that concerning its involvement in drug trafficking and terrorism.
In March of this year, the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) indicted the ruler of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro Moros and 14 other current and former Venezuelan officials for involvement in narco-terrorism, corruption, drug trafficking, and other criminal activity. The indictments also charged that Maduro and company had partnered with the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC), a Colombian terrorist group, to flood the United States with cocaine in a deliberate effort to destabilize the country.
Per U.S. Attorney, Geoffrey S. Berman, “The scope and magnitude of the drug trafficking alleged was made possible only because Maduro and others corrupted the institutions of Venezuela and provided political and military protection for the rampant narco-terrorism crimes described in our charges. As alleged, Maduro and the other defendants expressly intended to flood the United States with cocaine in order to undermine the health and wellbeing of our nation.”
In response, the AGJ released an open letter condemning the U.S. action and announcing its complete and unwavering support for Maduro and his drug smuggling compatriots. That letter reads in part:
“Open Letter to Condemn Trump Administration’s Hypocritical Indictment on Drug Charges of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and High-Ranking Venezuelan Officials
We, the undersigned organizations and prominent individuals condemn the false claims of criminal charges by the U.S. government against the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and other high-ranking officials with the pretext of their alleged involvement in international drug trafficking…
This decision of the U.S. constitutes a further escalation in coercive measures against a sovereign country…
The U.S. Department of Justice has not presented evidence to substantiate their narco-trafficking indictment. Washington’s case looks politically motivated. In the wake of over six years of U.S. sanctions and over a year of failed attempted coups, the majority support of the Venezuelan people for their democratically elected government has not been shaken.”AGJ Open Letter
The AGJ’s action, in this case, was predictable. It has consistently supported the repressive regime of Maduro and his predecessor Chavez, singing the praises of a vicious narco-trafficking Communist regime and peddling the false narrative that the people of Venezuela are happy and contented in their Marxist hell.
In August of 2019, the AGJ condemned President Trump’s imposition of sanctions on Venezuela calling Maduro’s regime “the legitimate government of Venezuela” and complaining that the sanctions would impede the provision of support to Maduro by Russia and China. In 2009 Chuck Kaufman, director of AGJ, referred to Venezuela as being a “hemispheric pioneer and leader” in the effort to build a “multi-polar world” and called on Americans to support Venezuela’s efforts to achieve “greater political and economic integration in Latin America” and to oppose free trade with the United States. In his spare time, Kaufman has also condemned American policy toward North Korea and Iran.
Across the nation, as mob violence and riots continue, individuals and organizations continue to peddle the lie that what we are seeing are peaceful protests aimed at making incremental change within the existing political, economic and social system. That is a lie. It is a deliberate and so far highly-successful attempt to prevent average Americans from understanding what is afoot and what the goals are of the ongoing insurrection.
The individuals in groups like the AGJ who are fueling and directing this revolution are enemies of this republic. They have been so for decades. In confrontations between this democratic republic and brutal Communist dictatorships, they have consistently taken the side of the Communists. This is not because they have been misled. This is not because they do not understand what is at stake.
It is because they agree with the Communists. It is because they are Communists.
The AGJ did not condemn the DOJ’s indictment of Maduro and his henchmen because they did not believe the charges. They condemned the action, because they agree with Maduro and because any action designed to destroy the existing order in the United States of America has their support. In the end, chaos and destruction are necessary preconditions for the long-awaited revolution.
The AGJ wants what Maduro wants. Tyranny.
