BETTER LATE THAN NEVER; BUZZFEED GOES INSIDE THE ANTI-TRUMP PROTEST MOVEMENT:

Along with the anarchists, core organizers of the protests have included the ANSWER Coalition, a group with roots that trace back to supporting the Soviet invasion of Hungary in the 1950s, and the Socialist Alternative, a Trotskyist group on the other side of those forgotten Communist civil wars. Those groups’ organizing muscle has long made them important, if controversial, elements of the US left (they were central to protests against the Iraq War in 2003), and they now find themselves marching with Bernie Sanders supporters, civil rights advocates, and thousands of Democrats shocked at Trump’s election.

As famed law enforcement official John McClane would say, welcome to the party, fellas. I pointed that out back in April after seeing AP photos of anti-Trump protestors outside of the Hyatt Regency Hotel near SFO hosting the California Republican Party Convention with Spanish language banners and the URL ANSWERcoalition.com on them.
