Ah, commies. It’s like we hardly knew ye. What were once the villains du jour on the Hollywood screen now seem almost a distant memory. It’s hard to believe that there are people born after the cinematic release of “The Hunt for Red October” who can now legally rent a car.
However, in the United States, communism didn’t die with the fall of the U.S.S.R. The commies merely changed their party affiliation to Democrat (if they hadn’t been there already).
This sign makes plain what has unfortunately happened to the Marxists of yore (H/T Overpasses for America):
Think that’s hyperbole? Think again. Let’s take a look at our president.
- He believes that, if you own a business, you didn’t build that — the government and minimum-wage workers did.
- His mentor when he was growing up in Hawaii was Frank Marshall Davis, a card-carrying communist who had, at one point, pledged allegiance to the Soviet Union.
- He’s aided the communist government in Cuba by returning jailed spies of theirs, beginning normalization of relations and generally treating Raul Castro with more respect than he does the Republican Party.
- He was also the Soviet cook/spy in “The Hunt for Red October” who shot Sam Neill before he could see Montana.
Okay, one of those four statements is false, but that’s still three too few.
And it isn’t like Barack Obama is an outlier. The Democratic Party is home to other outstanding crypto-socialists like Elizabeth Warren, Maxine Waters and Jerry Brown.
As for the actual Communist Party USA? Well, they’re pretty cool with the Democrats, too.
CPUSA Chairman John Batchell recently said in a blog post that, “At this stage we are about building the broad people’s movement led by labor that utilizes the vehicle of the Democratic Party to advance its agenda.”
So, yeah, there’s that.
Gone are the days when we would oppose communists by confronting them militarily, telling Mr. Gorbachev to tear down that wall or getting Alec Baldwin to steal that submarine with a nearly-silent propulsion system.
Now, we just elect them.
Under the leadership of McConnell and Boehner, you could get the impression that the Republican Party is merging with the Democrat Party. If so, the GOP is following close on the heels of the Communist Party USA:
The chairman of the National Committee of the Communist Party USA has penned a 2,023-word manifesto making the critical point that American Communists are eager to work with the Democratic Party to advance the modern communist agenda and achieve communist goals.
Communist Party chairman John Bachtell published his essay last week at People’s World, a “daily news website of, for and by the 99% and the direct descendant of the Daily Worker.”
“[L]abor and other key social forces are not about to leave the Democratic Party anytime soon,” Bachtell promised. “They still see Democrats as the most realistic electoral vehicle” to fight against perceived class enemies.
The days of anticommunist Democrats like JFK and Scoop Jackson are a fading memory now. Communists have infiltrated and now totally dominate the Democrat Party. If only patriots would do the same to the GOP, before commies beat them to it and take over that party too.
In a Christmas break message to his party, Communist Party USA vice chair Jarvis Tyner has confirmed the vital importance of the build up to the 2012 elections to “set the stage for a new progressive era and for a socialist transformation.”
Tyner draws clear right/left battle lines and the communist’s commitment to Party ‘friend’ President Barack Obama and to the Democratic Party cause:
Jarvis Tyner, center
2012 is a big election year and as we know the stakes are very high. The right-wing Republican opposition unashamedly defends the wealth and privilege of the 1% over the 99% that includes tens of millions who are struggling to survive. These self-proclaimed patriots are willing to wreck our country in order to defeat Barack Obama in 2012 elections. Our party and youth league are an active part of the great democratic mass that is standing against them.
Jarvis Tyner also makes it clear that a key part of the Communist Party/Democratic Party game plan, will be use of the “race card.”
It may be early in the campaign season, but the Communist Party USA already has seen fit to endorse Barack Obama for the 2012 election.
While noting he is disappointed with “some aspects” of the Obama administration’s domestic and foreign policy, Sam Webb, chairman of the Communist Party USA, threw his support behind Obama’s re-election bid.
