Ted Leo and Thievery Corporation, But Who Else Will Be Down On The Mall This Weekend?

I saw a link to this article by David Corn on Instapundit. It delves into the background of International ANSWER, a vocal left-wing anti-war group. and one of the organizers of tomorrow's anti-war rally on the National Mall here in DC.

Int'l ANSWER is described as being tightly interwoven with the Workers World Party (WWP), which in the past has lauded the North Korean government of Kim Jong Il for resisting the influence of multinational corporations, supported the Soviet Invasion of Hungary in 1956, and argued against the war-crimes trial of Slobodan Milosevic.

ANSWER has a history of drawing less-radical people who oppose the war to its demonstrations by hiding the extent of its hard left buffoonery. These aren't merely stridently liberal, anti-war, NPR-and-Trader Joe's types. These are bring-back-Uncle-Stalin and Mao's Little Red Book types.

UPDATE: Instapundit has linked to another article on ANSWER and their problems with Jews.
