Break for a joke

Caught my eye on this blog a couple of political jokes .

No.1 Two anarchists are making molotov cocktails. One says to the other, "So who will we throw these at then?"
The other replies "What are you, some kind of fucking intellectual?!?"

No.2 An old revolutionary walks across the Brooklyn Bridge one day, and he sees man of a similar age standing on the edge, about to jump.

He runs over and says: "Stop. Don't do it."
"Why shouldn't I?" he asked.
"Well, there's so much to live for!"
"I'm just depressed, I've been a Communist all my life and the revolution seems as far away as ever"
"You're a Communist?"
"Yeah, why?"
"I am as well!! Did you originally join the Communist Party USA?"
"Me too! Did you join the pro-Trotsky Communist League of America in 1928, which later merged with the American Workers Party to form the Workers Party of America in 1934?"
"Spooky, Me too! After the WPA was expelled from the Socialist Party of America in 1936 did you then go on to join the Socialist Workers Party USA and the fourth international?"
"I did actually…"
"Me too! In the 1940 dispute did you side with Cannon or Shachtman?"
"Me too! In 1962 did you join Robertson's opposition caucus, the Revolutionary Tendency?"
" Holly shit! And of course like me you were expelled and went on to join the International Communist League (Spartacist)"
"Well that goes without saying!"
"In 1985 did you join the International Bolshevik Tendency who claimed that the Sparts have degenerated into an 'obedience cult' "
"No way!"
"Nah, me neither. In 1998 did you join the Internationalist Group after the Permanent Revolution Faction were expelled from the ICL?"
"Yeah! I can't believe this! Maybe I won't…."
"Die counterrevolutionary scum!".

And he pushes him off the edge

"The 18 August burglary was quite a bit different. In that incident, the
burglar entered by using an extension ladder to reach the first-floor
toilet window and smashed the glass. This presumably made a lot of noise,
and probably did wake me, but I ignored it because the bar next door
smashes glass every few hours when they empty their used bottles into the
backyard bin. After the burglar entered, his ladder fell away, leaving
him trapped in the building. At 04:45 he came into the room I was
sleeping in, probably not expecting the building to be occupied. This
woke me, and I immediately called the police for help, because I couldn't
know why the stranger had entered the building or if he was violent. The
police dispatcher said that the police would arrive as soon as possible.
In the meantime I encountered the fellow and asked what he was doing in
the building, and after some talking he more or less admitted to coming in
to rob the place. I kept him in the building (through persuasion, not
force) for about an hour waiting for the police to come, but after two
more calls to them or from them in which they said they had no officers
available, they advised me to release him in case he became violent. I
let him go around 06:00; the only thing of value he took from the building
was a copy of the Socialist Standard he had been reading during the
previous hour."
