The Maoists of #Ferguson: Why the Media Blackout?

Hubert Collins

Out of all the photos I have seen of the protests, looting, arson, etc. regarding the recent decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson, by far the most interesting ones are those featuring Maoists.

No, that was not a typo. In fact it was a very precise descriptor: Maoists, while being Communists, are a specific type of Communist; as their name implies, they are the variety of Communists that particularly admire Mao Zedong, as opposed to Lenin, Trotsky, etc. While not exactly numerous, there are some Maoists in the United States, and they come out in full force in the latest protests sweeping the nation.
