    .............After I was put in touch with a contact in Atlanta, I was brought to a “safe-house,” there and introduced to other activists. I suddenly felt like I was a part of something, and as a young idealist, I wanted very much to believe that I could make a difference for the better of America.

    After leaving the Atlanta safe-house, I joined up with a small band of activists traveling to Washington, D.C. to protest the U.S. Supreme Court. To my surprise, many of the so called “civil rights activists” I had met were also either members or sympathizers of the Revolutionary Communist Youth Brigade (RCYB) the youth movement of the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP), a subversive Maoist organization dedicated to the violent overthrow of the United States government. The RCP also illegally raised money for the Peruvian “Shining Path” terrorist army.
    During that trip and on another to NYC, many leftist activists tried to “educate me about the truth” – that individual freedom really meant freedom to oppress, that America’s leaders were racist imperialists, and that people had no right to own private property because “ownership is theft.”........

    .........My short journey into the radical left underground didn’t last very long because I love America, and although I was young, I knew the difference between right and wrong. It was obvious to me then that what was being preached to me then in communist "safe-houses" was anti-American just as it is obvious now when that same rhetoric comes from the White House.

    This is a ridiculous article. This guy says:

    In 1991, shortly after starting college, I explored the radical left and encountered many people who shared the same belief system as many of the people now working for or associated with the Obama administration.

    Later on in the article he says:

    After leaving the Atlanta safe-house, I joined up with a small band of activists traveling to Washington, D.C. to protest the U.S. Supreme Court. To my surprise, many of the so called “civil rights activists” I had met were also either members or sympathizers of the Revolutionary Communist Youth Brigade (RCYB) the youth movement of the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP), a subversive Maoist organization dedicated to the violent overthrow of the United States government. The RCP also illegally raised money for the Peruvian “Shining Path” terrorist army.

    What "civil rights activists" were around in the early 1990's? Of course he doesn't name any names just throw around the usual hateful characterizations of anyone he doesn't agree with.
