Communist Party Still Endorses Obama

Communist Party Still Endorses Obama
Al Ritter

Nothing new here folks, move along. Since Barack Obama’s run for the Illinois state senate the Communist Party USA has supported his upward movement. Every run he had since for any office has been supported by the CPUSA. This next election will be no exception the CPUSA has already endorsed Barack Obama and the Democratic Party in general.

Their announced infiltration of the ranks of the Democratic Party started in 1972 with the actions and words from Gus Hall, when he was quoted as saying, “We are going to work towards independence, but I think it is clear we are going to work with people who for some time will be 'riding two horses' in the field of political action.”

Not much will have changed in 40 years come the next Presidential election, Democrats are still riding two horses, one that appears main stream, and the other that supports the communist ideology. Charlene Mitchell, then Executive Director of the African-American Commission explained the direction of movement for African-Americans in the 1983, when she was quoted in an article for Political Affairs the journal for the CPUSA.

“We see building political independence based on the alliance of labor with the African-American community as the aim for changing the relationship of forces in elected office. The Party Program maintains the ultimate expression of this would be a mass anti-monopoly people's party...
From the standpoint of process, even if it is currently developing primarily through the Democratic Party, the fact that labor, the Rainbow Coalition, and the African-American community are the main generators of the new developments substantiates our policy and our historic approach of basing the building of political independence on the alliance of the trade union movement and the African-American people...
Should the party strive to play a leading role helping those forces gain and consolidate new positions of strength, even inside the Democratic Party or shouldn't it?, I think it should.
How is our party going to develop its all-sided electoral presence? This cannot and should not repose solely on Communist or Left-independent candidates. Not if there is any intention of emerging as an integral component of the overall progressive coalition. Especially in view of the fact that the Jackson-led progressive wing of the Democratic Party is that coalition's major organized component."

She singled out Rev Jesse Jackson’s group the Rainbow Coalition as being the main arm or connection to the Communist Party USA, to bring communism in as main stream to the African-American community. They have constantly expanded on the “haves and the “have nots” to expand on the increasing rift between economic classes.

In proper context to the 2012 election, Sam Webb has been quoted as saying, “Neither party is anti-capitalist, but they aren’t identical either. Differences exist at the levels of policy and social composition. And despite the many frustrations of the past two years, the election of Barack Obama was historic and gave space to struggle for a people’s agenda.

So there you have it, proof that Obama’s presidency is all about labor and the struggle of the “people”………all main stream communist/democratic ideas….like I said earlier…..nothing to see here move along!
