Media Ignore Communist Presence at Copenhagen

Brent Baker with the Media Research Center pointed out in his BiasAlert article, "Network journalists who were quick to see racists, haters and extremists amongst the 'tea party' protesters were oblivious... to communists" participating in the march.

Throughout Saturday's demonstration, large red flags bearing the Soviet Union's hammer and sickle waved above the heads of marchers representing the Danish Kommunistisk Parti. The communists also carried banners declaring, "Socialism: A Cohesive and Viable Alternative." Baker quotes broadcasts from NBC Nightly News and CBS Evening News touting Saturday's march as a peaceful demonstration for "real change." NBC reporter Anne Thompson gushed, "An extraordinary sight in front of Denmark's parliament building: 35,000 protestors filling the square, stepping off on a slow march with an urgent plea: Save the planet... The marchers have a simple message for the delegates. Stop talking and start acting."

Network broadcasts also failed to deliver the message communists brought with them to the demonstration. The party's website says its members joined the march "in protest against the rich countries' irresponsibility and passivity toward problems facing our planet," pointing a particular finger of blame at the United States. "The United States and its allies come to Copenhagen to strengthen their own imperialist ambitions," writes party member Julie Malling. "Let us stand together for our common requirements and isolate the U.S. and the industrialized countries who have come to Copenhagen to ensure the survival of capitalism." Malling calls for employing civil disobedience in the "climate battle," claiming activists have successfully shut down coal-based power plants in the past.

Your OP is a little thin on your own view so I'm a little confused by what you're getting at?

Are you suggesting that "communists" shouldn't demonstrate?

Or are you trying to establish a false association between folks with a communist ideology and everyone who might be concerned with the environment?

Not having a go at you ... at least not yet.

Just trying to understand what you are trying to communicate.

Just pointing out the media blackout of communist presence.

I always wonder why groups like this show up to protest at events that are in line with their way of thinking.

Instead of calling this group "protesters", they should be labled supporters.

In line with their way of thinking? Those protestors are anti-capitalism. Those participating in the Copenhagen summit are the elites, the PINNACLE of capitalism and they do everything they can to defend it.

It is completely and utterly bizarre to describe them as somehow supportive of capitalism.
