Trotskyites, Tankies and the man with the Zapata moustache

Remember this chap? Well, José Bové is putting it about that he's ready to to accept a nomination to run for the French Presidency next year and has called on the wilder fringes of the French left to 'have the courage to consider a candidate who is not a Party member'.

Roughly translated, this means 'I fancy a tilt at the top job but don't have much of a campaigning machine behind me and therefore I'm quite happy to go along with dialectical materialism, the dictatorship of the proletariat etc etc if I get the use of party workers. And I might have a book coming out'. A little sniffing around turned up his claim that Mossad arranged the 2002 fire bombings etc of shuls in Paris. Nice man.

A comment maker over at Liberation adds a comment so naive it is almost touching: "In order for the anti-liberal Left to have a [single] candidate, the Trotskyites and Communists need to bury their differences". Uh-huh. Like that is going to happen, ever.

if the hard left ever stopped fighting each other they'd realise how irrelevant they've become.

great to watch them at it.In the UK I remember the revolutionary commies and socialist workers going at it very amusing

If you venture onto kilburn high road on a saturday (I dont recommend it) you will find SWP haranguing passers by from a stall right next to some muslims attempting a bit of recruitment, they seem to get on famously.

Don't see much of the far left in these parts, but you can't move for them outside Brixton tube. The Life of Brian style squabbling over tiny ideological differces are what gives their lives meaning I think.

I liked someone's description of Respect as Trots in Burkas.

Meanwhile, the Far Left's bickering reminds me of this Emo joke:

Once I saw this guy on a bridge about to jump. I said, "Don't do it!" He said, "Nobody loves me." I said, "God loves you. Do you believe in God?"

He said, "Yes." I said, "Are you a Christian or a Jew?" He said, "A Christian." I said, "Me, too! Protestant or Catholic?" He said, "Protestant." I said, "Me, too! What franchise?" He said, "Baptist." I said, "Me, too! Northern Baptist or Southern Baptist?" He said, "Northern Baptist." I said, "Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist or Northern Liberal Baptist?" He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist." I said, "Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region, or Northern Conservative Baptist Eastern Region?" He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region." I said, "Me, too!"

Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1879, or Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912?" He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912." I said, "Die, heretic!" And I pushed him over.
