Ajamu Baraka, the savant Assadist

Ajamu Baraka, the Green Party candidate for Vice President, who often waxes indignant for Assad & Putin, is up in arms to deny the gassing of civilians. He’s not a man given to investigation but is another who considers himself a “political savant” & gropes his way through complex political issues ending up railing at paper tigers.

Showing just how unsteady his visceral gropings have proven on Syria, our man vituperates: “…keep your simplistic pro-Assad charges to yourself. This is not about any personalities but the soul of the US.” He of course meant anti-Assad but when you grope your way through things, words get mixed up too.

We’d like to ask our man Baraka if he thinks the well-documented, not viscerally ascertained reports of tens of thousands of Syrians arrested, tortured, murdered, forcibly disappeared, incarcerated are simplistic & personal charges against Assad or do they have a political character? Does the carpet bombing of civilians have a political character or is that also just personal?

This political fight is not about the soul of the US. How US-centric can you get to make such a claim? This is about the struggle of Syrian working people against dictatorship & whether you stand with them or with Assad.

Baraka is another one of those who claims if you’re against Assad’s dictatorship then you support US intervention. Nice try. Big fat lie. He ought to try less following his instincts & more cracking a book.
