                    Red-baiting Epoch Times runs wild

                    2012-01-16 Author:By Greg Butterfield

                    The latest edition of the Epoch Times, a far-right free weekly newspaper associated with the pro-imperialist Falun Gong movement in China, is an all-out attack on two candidates for local New York City offices.


                    John Liu, a Chinese-American community activist and member of the City Council, is running for Comptroller. John X. Choe, a Korean-American activist from the group Nodutdol, is running for a seat on the City Council. Both of them are participating in the Democratic Party primaries tomorrow.


                    The Epoch Times accuses Liu of being a Chinese spy working to undermine "democracy" in New York City. That would be the same "democracy" that allows billionaire Michael Bloomberg to spend unlimited amounts of cash to stay in office as long as he and his Wall Street buddies like, right? John X. Choe, meanwhile, is attacked for his anti-imperialist views on Korea, including remarks he made at a public conference of my organization, Workers World Party: "Korea is at the front lines of the liberation struggles against imperialism," John Choe said in a May 2006 speech. He was speaking at a conference called "Preparing for the Rebirth of the Global Struggle for Socialism" hosted by the Workers World Party, a self-described "orthodox Marxist" political group. The audio of his speech is available at workers.org. [Thanks for the plug, Epoch Times!]


                    "We still have friends, activists who are being arrested on a daily basis [in South Korea]," Choe said in his 2006 speech to the Workers World Party "for expressing their free will and their thought and for struggling against the U.S. and U.S. imperialism."'Apparently, according to the "freedom-loving" Epoch Times, communists, socialists, anti-imperialists and leftists have no right to participate in New York electoral politics. Much the same way the Van Jones, as a former radical and community organizer, has no right to participate in Washington politics, according the capitalist establishment. If you are able to vote in the NYC Democratic primaries, go out tomorrow and support John X. Choe and John Liu, and stick it to the fascists at the Epoch Times.
