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.

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.
