In a move of complete desperation, leftist anti-Trump “resistance” organizations are now siding with North Korea over President Donald Trump and America.
That's right, Refuse Fascism and the Workers World Party have reached such a high level of hatred for their president that they have now sided with a 33-year-old dictator in a communist country who has forced 25 million people, which is 70 percent of the North Korean population, into “food insecurity and undernutrition” just because they don't like Trump.
Refuse Fascism, a group funded by George Soros, has given numerous presentations where they have claimed they will succeed in costing America's leaders “international legitimacy.” So basically, they're completely fine with going down with the ship that is the U.S. as long as it means Trump looks bad.
Ironically, the Refuse Fascism “resistance” group is in full support of fascism as long as it's located in North Korea and not the United States.
Dictionary.com defines fascism as:
A governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc..
So if they're truly “refusing fascism,” why on earth are they now fully supporting North Korea and Kim Jong Un who literally defines the word “fascism”?
The second group, Workers World Party, is a Marxist organization that has preached North Korean talking points that describe America as basically hell and North Korea as a paradise. Which begs the question, why don't they all just move to North Korea if it's so great there?
The Workers World Party published an editorial titled “Korea won't be intimidated.” Just days later, they published another editorial titled “Self-defense and the DPRK,” which described the U.S. as the “oppressor” of North Korea. Last time I checked, the only oppressor of North Korea is North Korea itself.
It's almost as if these people have never read a single word in a history book or learned anything about communist dictators.
As if all of this isn't bad enough, they're also telling their followers to distrust any reports on North Korea that say they are oppressing their own people.
