STORM’s Politics

STORM was never formally a “Marxist-Leninist” organization, and we never had a systematic Marxist theoretical framework. But we did hav a political commitment to the fundamental ideas of Marxism-Leninism. We upheld the Marxist critique of capitalist exploitation. We agreed with Lenin’s analysis of the state and the party. And we found inspiration and guidance in the insurgent revolutionary strategies developed by Third World revolutionaries like Mao Tse-Tung and Amilcar Cabral…. We also saw our brand of Marxism as, in some ways, a reclamation. In the face of a stereotype of Marxism that racialized it as white, we wanted to reclaim the history of Third World Communist struggle. After all, such struggles have made up the overwhelming majority of communist movements worldwide….

But if we were firmly within the Marxist tradition, we were not bound very tightly to any camp within it.

It was never any secret that Green was the new Red. But, given the Magic Negro’s affiliations with the Chicago Left, the Latin American Left, and outright California communists such as Van Jones, there can be little doubt that he is, at the very least, sympathetic to Marxist causes.
