Refuse Fascism is a front of the white communist-led Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP).
Like Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, RCP chairman Bob Avakian is a white communist who came out of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), the group that laid siege to college campuses before turning into the terrorist Weather Underground.
Referred to by his followers as “Chairman Bob,” Avakian is devoted to “the struggle for a communist world” and wrote a memoir, From Ike to Mao and Beyond: My Journey from Mainstream America to Revolutionary Communist.
One of his big fans is Princeton University’s Cornel West, a favorite of the media who declared, “Bob Avakian is a long distance runner in the freedom struggle against imperialism, racism and capitalism. His voice and witness are indispensable in our efforts to enhance the wretched of the earth.”
West is honorary chair of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).
