Communist Youth of Canada, Vampire Lord In Solidarity

Fellow worker, have you read the latest edition of Rebel Youth? That would be the Communist Youth of Canada's pdf-zine out of Vancouver. Here is a sample from the editorial "We Can Stop The Attack On Youth".

What is this corporate agenda, Harper-style?

War. Support US wars and aggressions overseas. Already, they’ve committed Canada to participating in Afghanistan for ten years! The money will have to come from somewhere. So we will see them try to bash women’s rights, queer rights, visible minority rights.
Thus funding their illegal war against the people of Afghanistan with the rich proceeds of hate crime here at home. Got it?

Also in this issue is Palestinian poet Mahmoud "We will write our names in crimson vapor" Darwish, stirred up by this wicked plot. His piece "Identity Card" gets a full page spread of solidarity. Although he talks like a vampire lord level boss in an 8 bit Nintendo video game, I believe these to be the words of an actual person.
Write down on the top of the first page:
I do not hate people
PRESS A TO CONTINUE
Nor do I encroach
But if I become hungry
PRESS A TO CONTINUE
The usurper's flesh will be my food
PRESS A TO CONTINUE
Beware…
PRESS A TO CONTINUE
Beware…
PRESS A TO CONTINUE
Of my hunger
PRESS A TO CONTINUE
And my anger!
PRESS A TO CONTINUE
Even given this as a baseline, other parts like the advice column make it seem like this magazine might be a put on by some People's Cube type pranksters.

They're out to kill our rabbits and turn them into oil; then they will sell our teeth to Bush,so we can't bite ourselves in the ass.

Get it?
