Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing

Communists exploiting useful Democrat idiots for their own ends.

John Bachtell, chairman of the National Committee of the Communist Party USA, addressed the Communist Party USA’s national convention this past weekend, celebrating its 100th anniversary. Looking at key Democrat Party constituencies as potential fellow travelers, he talked about using this “pivotal moment” in history to help bring about a “democratic and transformative upsurge” for the purpose of radically shifting politics in the United States. He talked about forging a “socialist path,” working as needed “within and alongside the Democratic Party” to defeat “the extreme right and the GOP” including ousting the “fossil fuel, military-industrial complex, and the industrial elite that constitutes its core.” He added that “many of the forces operating within the Democratic Party today”—along with Communist Party members themselves — “will form the working-class party of tomorrow.”

Mr. Bachtell had written back in 2015  how the Communists could use the constituencies of “labor, African Americans, Latinos, other communities of color, women, most union members, young people, and a wide range of social and democratic movements” already within the Democrat Party as “the vehicle” to advance the Communist Party USA’s own agenda.

The Democrat Party today, which has become a grievance machine against the imaginary ills of toxic maleness and white privilege, is helping Mr. Bachtell’s vision become a reality. The communists are shrewdly exploiting the identity politics that have taken over the leftward-leaning Democrat Party of today to serve their own more radical ends. As a result, the communist-progressive Democrat agendas are melding.

According to a Gallup poll published last October, less than half of Democrats view capitalism positively. In the two previous presidential election years of 2012 and 2016, more than half of Democrats who were polled viewed capitalism positively. 57% of Democrats now view socialism positively, virtually the same as in 2016 but up 4 percentage points from 2012. Americans aged 18 to 29 are six percent more positive about socialism than they are about capitalism, according to the Gallup poll. In the last two presidential election years, this age group was more positive about capitalism than socialism, although in 2016 the spread was quite narrow. Continue reading

On Slavery

“Over 300,000 Union soldiers died in large part to end U.S. slavery.” Robert Maranto

“Historically, powerful people enslaved their neighbors. Africans enslaved Africans while Turks and Arabs enslaved Europeans.” Ibid

“18thcentury Britain was the world’s largest slave trader, with powerful interests profiting from human trafficking.  Yet under religious pressure [Wilberforce, Carey etc.], 19thcentury British parliaments abolished slavery and increasingly employed the Royal Navy and colonial governance to erode the global slave trade, at enormous cost in blood and treasure.” Ibid

Today, it seems obvious that, as President Lincoln wrote, “if slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.” Yet through the vast majority of recorded history, in the New World and the Old and in each major religious tradition, slavery was normal, a regular part of the social fabric. Slavery’s abolition is recent and aberrant, perhaps the finest achievement of the West.

American abolition came in 1865 when on June 19, soon dubbed Juneteenth, Union General Gordon Granger freed the last enslaved Africans in Texas.

America’s Juneteenth hardly ended slavery, however. China, Brazil, Sierra Leone, Iraq, Afghanistan, Morocco, all 26 nation-states governing most of humanity, abolished slavery after – in many cases long after – over 300,000 Union soldiers died in large part to end U.S. slavery. Continue reading

Paint it Red

“His Kenyan father was a communist, who met Obama’s mother, a radical leftist, in a Russian language class.” Karin McQuillan

“The American Committee for Protection of Foreign Born (ACPFB)…was founded by the Communist Party in order to exploit racial divisions in the United States for its own revolutionary purposes.” Ibid

“David Axelrod’s mother worked for a communist newspaper. His father, according to Axelrod in his memoir, ‘listed his party affiliation as Communist.’” Ibid

Obama Appointees in the Communist Orbit

By Karin McQuillan; American Thinker, May 24, 2019

Late in May, Rush Limbaugh repeated a quote from James Comey in a  New York Magazine interview:

I’d moved from communist to whatever I am now. I’m not even sure how to characterize myself politically. Maybe at some point, I’ll have to figure it out.

It’s hard to pin too much on that quote.  Perhaps Comey was joking by calling his vote for Jimmy Carter a vote for a communist, in mockery of his supposedly fellow Republicans.

Joking about support for communism is not all that funny in the Obama administration.  Obama’s CIA director, John Brennan, actually did vote for a communist presidential candidate.  Brennan and Comey are two of the central players in the Russia Collusion Hoax.

Obama chose communists and Marxists for the highest, most powerful positions in our land, including his closest political advisers and his head of the CIA.  These facts are not in dispute.  Most are openly admitted by the people in question, as necessary damage control.  Our press chooses not to report them.

Professor Paul Kengor has extensively researched the Chicago communists whose progeny include David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, and Barack Hussein Obama.  Add the openly Marxist, pro-communist Ayers, and you have many of the key players who put Obama into power. Continue reading
