In the last day, as anti-war forces around the country have been working together to build for this weekend’s important mobilizations, we at A.N.S.W.E.R. have been taken by surprise by a campaign initiated by Michael Lerner and furthered by David Corn (a reporter for the Nation and Fox News) and others that has sought to deceive the anti-war movement and to misdirect its energies to instead focus on fraudulent claims of victimhood by Michael Lerner because he was not asked to speak at the San Francisco demonstration this Sunday. This attack has now been picked up by ultra-right, pro-war forces in an effort to defame the movement.
Sorry, I do not know who’s right on this one. Everybody does seem rather pissed, though…
