Atlas Obscura, a popular site that helps people find interesting places in particular cities, has this to say about the Lucy Parsons Center in Boston:
Originally founded in 1969 as the “Red Book,” this is one establishment that is not afraid to proclaim its political stance. Originally Maoist, today it is predominantly anarchist and entirely volunteer driven, donning the slogan “no bosses, no pay.”
In addition to their well-stocked shelves of literature covering every wing of the progressive movement, they provide a wide variety of resources including a free meeting space for local activist groups, frequent cultural and educational events, book signings, and weekly Radical Movie Nights on Wednesdays at 7PM.
Like how “originally Maoist” is thrown in as an interesting and chic fact about the ol’ Lucy Parsons Center? No horror, no moral outrage, just plain-vanilla reporting.
I rather doubt I will ever come across:
“Originally Nazi, today it is predominantly nationalist….”
Lesson: being a Maoist is a-OK. Dead Chinese people do not matter.
