D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray

“Washington D.C.’s black mayor [Vincent Gray] is a prominent patron of his hometown restaurant/bookstore Busboys and Poets, billed by its owner as ‘The Cultural Hub of the Black Community,’ and known as ‘a haven for writers, thinkers and performers from America’s progressive social and political movements.’” Humberto Fontova

 Chick-fil-A, Mayor Vincent Gray, and “Hate Speech”

By Humberto Fontova – Townhall.Com – 8/11/2012

For expressing the opinion of the majority of voters in the 31 states where gay marriage was put to vote Chick-fil-A’s President Dan Cathy is accused of “hate speech” by D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray. Such is the mayor’s revulsion that he threatens to mimic Lester Maddox circa 1962 and stand at his city gates wielding an ax handle to bar restaurant Chik-fil-A’s entry into his municipal domain.

Washington D.C’s black mayor is a prominent patron of his hometown restaurant/bookstore Busboys and Poets, billed by its owner as “The Cultural Hub of the Black Community,” and known as “a haven for writers, thinkers and performers from America’s progressive social and political movements.”

This restaurant features posters of Che Guevara on its walls and Che Guevara’s books in its adjoining bookstore. Busboys and Poets also sponsor tours of Cuba in partnership with Castro’s Stalinist regime. Every penny spent by Mayor Gray’s starry-eyed constituents on these Potemkin tours lands in the pockets of the only regime in the Western Hemisphere to herd thousands of men and boys into forced labor camps at Soviet-bayonet point for the crime of fluttering their eyelashes, flapping their hands and talking with a lisp. Every penny spent in Cuba by these progressive writers and artists enriches the only regime in the Western Hemisphere to fuel bonfires with Orwell’s Animal Farm, The UN Declaration of Human Rights and the writings of Martin Luther King.

“Totalitarians Within”

“When it came to American Communists, the Sixties revolution turned everything upside down.  Beginning in the 1970s, a spate of movies, documentaries, books, and other works depicted [Sen. Joseph] McCarthy and his ilk as the very personification of evil and made heroes of the men and women who’d been blacklisted in Hollywood.  All of the Hollywood Ten, it turned out, had indeed been Stalinists, but that didn’t matter.  It was almost as if Stalinism were a race, and the Hollywood Ten had been the victims of something akin to racism.”  Bruce Bawer, FrontPage Magazine, August 9, 2012

The Totalitarians Within

By Bruce Bawer – August 9, 2012

David Horowitz’s 1989 essay “Carl Bernstein’s Communist Problem & Mine,” which was reprinted at Front Page recently, not only makes points about the true nature of the Communist faith that are vital to remember.  The essay also, by extension, underscores important truths about the nature of all totalitarian faiths – including Islam.

In the essay, Horowitz wrote about his upbringing in “a colony of Jewish Communists” in an otherwise ordinary Queens neighborhood.  These Communists, he explained, “lived two lives.”  They postured as law-abiding middle-class liberals, but were really secret agents taking orders from Moscow.  What brought meaning to their lives was the hope and belief that someday they would be called upon by the Party to “go underground” and “take the lead in the revolutionary struggle” to overthrow American democracy.

Horowitz knows about this colony because he grew up in it.  But you could’ve lived amidst these families for decades and not known.  You could’ve thought of them as your best friends.

For a decade or so after World War II, there was a general awareness that some Americans did indeed have covert totalitarian loyalties.  To most Americans, such a thing did not then seem inconceivable.  The war was fresh in their memories.  GIs had fought millions of people who were true believers in totalitarian ideology.  Most Americans had no illusions about what Stalin and his followers stood for.  The media weren’t hesitant to use phrases like “Free World” and “Iron Curtain.”  If anyone did doubt the existence of Communist networks in the U.S., the hearings of the House Un-American Activities Committee provided proof.

The President of the United States Is a Socialist

The President of the United States Is a Socialist

By David A. Noebel

It’s official—Barack Obama is a socialist! Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly posed the question to Dick Morris: “In your heart, you believe [Obama] is a socialist?” to which Morris replied, “Yes, I do” (The O’Reilly Factor, December 15, 2010).

Dick Morris has made very few political mistakes in his life, and his opinion confirms my longstanding belief that our current president is a Fabian Socialist with a bias toward revolution! Anyone who counts among his associates and mentors Frank Marshall Davis, Saul Alinsky, Cornel West, Jim Wallis, Jeremiah Wright, Michael Klonsky, and Bill Ayers could not come away without such a bias.

Remember John C. Drew who knew Obama when they were both students at Occidental College back in the early 1980s? Drew admits that he was at one time a revolutionary Marxist and concluded that Obama was “a pure Marxist socialist.” Indeed, he also said that from his perspective Obama “had a hard Marxist-Leninist point of view.” (See Stanley Kurtz, Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism, page 88.)

Obama’s very rhetoric gives him away! He refers to opponents in the Senate and House as “enemies.” He exemplifies the typical Marxist socialist who lines up in his crosshairs for destruction whatever institution he has his eye on to socialize (nationalize) in his quest to destroy capitalism in any way possible. His move to nationalize the health care industry (which will eventually make the federal government the single payer) and the student loan industry are dead giveaways of what Marxists have in mind: ultimately all Americans will be dependent on government for their health care and only radical students will be eligible for student loans! Evangelical conservative Christians need not apply!

The confirmation that Obama is swimming in Marxist waters right up to the present time is his endorsement that allowed the Communist Party USA to participate in the October 2, 2010, “One Nation Working Together” rally in Washington, D.C., sponsored by the George Soros funded Tides Center.

Andree Seu at World magazine picked up the significance of this event when she remarked, “Once Communists in America lurked in the shadows: now the Communist Party USA is an unabashed presence at the Oct. 2 ‘One Nation Working Together’ rally” (November 6, 2010, p. 79).

John Sweeney, former president of the AFL-CIO, also allowed Communists back into his union. David Horowitz and Richard Poe in The Shadow Party say, “Much has been made of Sweeney’s political radicalism. A card-carrying member of the Democratic Socialists of America [a part of the Socialist International founded by Karl Marx], Sweeney opened the AFL-CIO’s door to Communist Party organizers for the first time since the 1950s, allowing Communists to distribute literature at his conventions and recruit workers to their cause” (p. 166). President Obama plans to award Sweeney the Medal of Freedom in February. Continue reading
