Celebrating Trotsky's murder
In 2021 several leading Democratic Socialists of America members celebrated the anniversary of Leon Trotsky's murder by Ramon Mercader. Those retweeting or “liking” these posts comprise a Rolodex of the DSA leadership.
Nickan Fayyazi, a member of the YDSA’s National Coordinating Committee leadership body and co-chair of the YDSA’s UC Berkeley chapter, presents a photo of an ice pick with the caption “this might come in handy today,” alongside other vulgar language. This was retweeted by Dary Rezvani, a prominent member of the Los Angeles Democratic Socialists of America.
The tweet about the ice pick was “liked” by over 100 people, including many DSA members, as well as the following DSA leaders and prominent members:
- Jacobin contributor Gabriel Patrick
