Amy Goodman as Rock Star in Hollywood

by @non Tuesday, Dec. 04, 2001 at 8:09 PM

Amy Goodman seen riding in Limo to Pacifica Campaign Fundraiser

Yes, it's true. Amy Goodman, the defacto figurehead who has a sort of cult of personality built around her, was rocking the limo outside at a fundraiser for Pacifica Campaign in Los Angeles this past Saturday, Dec. 2, 2001.

It's a really disturbing image of the saintly Goodman getting into a black stretch limo after talking sincerely about the need for money to fight the Pacifica National Board, and her desire to fight against the corporate tyranny of the "CMN", or the Cable Military Network, while shortly thereafter she gets into a car with the most disgusting symbolism of american hegemony and capital. Amy, what the hell were you thinking?

It is very disturbing indeed to begin to contemplate what motivates the Pacifica Campaign, and what it will mean when they "retake" Pacifica. Are they going to institute the same disgusting heierachical relationships that now exist at Pacifica, or are they going to build "democracy now" and institute some of the principles on which the IMC is founded? Well, money and power corrupts, and they corrupt absolutely. Sorry, but that is the sad truth.

I realize she probably just needed a ride somewhere, but i trust my gut, and my gut tells me that Amy should know better. and Amy, you do know better, and you know that you are not any more important than anyone else in this movement for global justice. You should be more careful about your fame and which direction you choose to take yourself in. My instincts tell me that the more you develop a cult-like personality *and feed it,* the less i will trust you.
