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.

As a result, the communist-progressive Democrat agendas are melding.

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
