“Chinese are more successful because in their country, only three people make the decision. In our country, 3,000 people do.” [I guess it has nothing to do with their slave labor]
~ Transportation Secretary, Ray LaHood
Socialist Richard Trumka, leader of the powerful AFL-CIO is one of Obama’s favored supporters. Trumka said he has almost daily contact with the White House as did socialist Andy Stern, former head of SEIU.
Take a look at the images on this AFL-CIO link, images which represent their organization. The AFL-CIO were co-sponsors of the annual May Day protests with the communists, socialists, and Democratic socialists.
These quotes from the New Zeal blog are most telling –
Asked if Obama is a friend or an acquaintance, Trumka said, “He’s a friend. There’s a lot of things we disagree with him on. There’s far more things that we agree with him on….”
Trumka said he’d like to see the U.S. become more like a European nation that provides pensions and health care for all its citizens. He said he is accustomed to criticism and doesn’t mind if conservatives call that socialism.
“Being called a socialist is a step up for me,” he said.
The communists reporting on their online blog, Peoples’ World, have endorsed Barack Obama for President and talk about the dangers of a Romney presidency.”
Marxist John Chase, a fascist who thinks Republicans are fascists, wants us to spend more money we don’t have and he wants a united Democratic Party to defeat Romney.
“Such divisions among Democrats and a potential wave of bad economic news can combine to threaten President Obama’s reelection. A month ago Romney and his fawning pledges to the lunatic, fascist currents in the Republican Party made him more of a joke than a serious candidate. But no more.”
Labor and progressive forces must double-down on unity to prevent a national Walker-like regime from seizing power. The basis of that unity is partially revealed in the Krugman and Stiglitz books: understand the ‘paradox of thrift’ – if an individual is in debt, they must cut expenses, but if a government – meaning ALL of us – is in debt, in a depression, cutting expenses, which means cutting more jobs, only get you deeper in debt, and deeper in depression.”
A leading writer for the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), Cliff Kincaid, says that “…re-electing Obama is absolutely essential,” and warns that “divisions among Democrats and a potential wave of bad economic news can combine to threaten President Obama’s reelection.”
One example of how statism is seeping into our culture is evidenced in the connections they have. The CPUSA in Missouri receives donations from the AFL-CIO, SEIU, and Democratic PACS. Click the link CPUSA to read the flyers which connect the three.
This is Missouri! Middle America!
Click the link – Peoples’ World – for this year’s St. Louis commie awards, being held in a union hall as usual. Last year’s speaker was Progressive Sally Kohn and this year’s keynote speaker is Clarence Lang, an African-American communist. He wrote Anticommunism and the African American Freedom Movement: “Another Side of the Story” which is sold by its publishers as contemporary black history.
Lang, a communist apologist, co-authored the book with Robbie Lieberman in which they tie communism, peace and black freedom into one neat package. They lament the loss of so many brilliant leftist organizations and thinkers because of McCarthyism and the Red Scare.
Lang credits communism for helping to end segregation and connects anti-communism to segregation:
“One of the things that comes out of this period is that the segregationists, those folks who were defending legal racial apartheid in the US, basically found in anti-communism a language to attack Black social movements. So even though every anti-communist was not a segregationist, certainly I think it was rare to find a segregationist who was not an anti-communist,” Lang is quoted as saying in an interview with Lieberman about their venture on PA, a Marxist Daily blog affiliated with the CPUSA and a big supporter of Barack Obama.
Lang is a radical black liberationist who believes in reparations. Click here for information about Associate Professor of History, Clarence Lang. There is a pdf on the right which lists his curriculum vitae. If you check out his writings, you won’t doubt that he is a radical communist.
Let’s not forget Mariele Castro’s endorsement of Obama during her recent trip to the U.S. Nothing like having a Castro on your side.
In 2008, Sam Webb, President of the Communist Party USA endorsed Obama for President, telling his followers that when they speak to Obama, they “are speaking to a friend.” Webb came out again, early in 2011, to endorse Obama for President and to ask for support for the Democratic Party.
I am not sure how extreme Barack Obama is, certainly he is extreme enough for the communists to heartily support him. Many of the radical steps he has taken to fundamentally change America will overturn our social, economic and political system if continued unabated. Such a complete destruction of our American way of life will open the way for Marxists to infiltrate on a grand scale.
If you don’t think it possible, take a look at how the minority of leftists are ruling the majority now – and we allow it. How’s it working out for you so far?
