greens, trotskyites, and the facts...
Today I read the Sydney Morning Herald opinion piece by Paul Sheehan in which he did a nice little number on The Greens, labelling them a Trotskyite front group. Now, I know Sheehan has all sorts of right-wing axes to grind, but I was wondering if there was any fire to go with his smokescreen.
I've been supportive of the Greens up to now, so I need to know where they really are on the political spectrum. If you don't want to make public comments on this blog, please use my email link in the right sidebar of this blog. Your emails will be treated in the strictest confidence. Any information would be most appreciated.
And while we're at it, some pointers towards understanding who Trotskyites are would also be helpful. At the end of the day I'm just a political ignoramus staggering around the political landscape trying to figure it all out.
As a complete non sequitur, I notice Gummo Trotsky has used some piss-weak excuses for not sorting his/her creative and expressive priorities out in order to keep his/her blogging relevant. Although and because I am not fit to grovel in his/her shadow, I say the man/woman is an intellectual wimp! A quitter! A wooss! You'd think that someome with an intellect of that magnitude would be able to navigate out of the Sargasso Sea they have navigated into. I'm especially pissed off because I only just started to read that blog. Damn! Damn! Damn!
