    Default Marxist American wins student election in India with anti-American campaign

    NEW DELHI -- An American who calls himself a Marxist has won a student election at India's premier Jawaharlal Nehru University on a campaign that accused Washington of pursuing imperialist policies.
    Tyler Walker Williams is perhaps the first foreigner to win university elections in India, where student politics is taken very seriously and is closely watched by national political parties.
    Williams was elected Saturday to the post of vice president, contesting as a candidate of the All India Students' Association, an affiliate of the Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist).
    Left-wing groups have long dominated politics at Jawaharlal Nehru University, where national and global issues often take centerstage during student elections.
    Some of its past leaders today hold key posts with political parties and the government.
    Williams, a native of Berkley, California, said he opposed the war in Iraq and the foreign policy of the Bush administration.
    "The U.S. is trying to spread imperialism," he told reporters in Hindi. "Seventy percent of people in America also oppose George Bush and his policies."
    Williams is a student of Hindi literature and has been in the university for the past six years.
    Voting for the elections was held Thursday, but the results were announced Saturday. The polls were swept by affiliates of various leftist parties in the country. (AP)

    Wow. Being anti-American. That's refreshing. So rare these days.

    Just like criticizing Israeli policies makes you an anti-semite.

    I am from the American CIA and I have a radio in my head. I am going to kill you.

    exactly.
    bush and his US foreign policy (and that of past presidents) is imperialist (well, neo-imperialist, to be precise), and you don't have to be a marxist to see that.
