Commies ♥ B. Hussein Obama (update)
You had to see this one coming:
"The Communist Party USA’s newspaper is defending Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama against potential defectors on the left, saying his candidacy represents a 'broad multi-class, multicultural movement.'
"In a July editorial, 'Eye on the Prize,' the People’s Weekly World, the official newspaper of the Communist Party USA, admonished anyone on the left who might consider abandoning Obama.
"'Barack Obama is not a left candidate,' the editorial said. 'This fact has seemingly surprised a number of progressive people who are bemoaning Obama’s shift to the center. It’s sad that some who seek progressive change are missing the forest for the trees. '
"'But they will not dampen the wide and deep enthusiasm for blocking a third Bush term represented by John McCain, or for bringing Obama by a landslide into the White House with a large Democratic congressional majority,' it added.
"The editorial, though never using the word 'endorse,' expressed excitement about his candidacy. It also used numerous slogans from the Obama campaign such as 'hope,' 'change' and 'third Bush term.'"
I took some heat a few weeks back when I reported the enthusiasm in many Commie quarters for one B. Hussein Obama. Those who took issue with what I said need to ask themselves this important question: Why is America's main Commie outfit, the Communist Party USA, so enthusiastic 'bout the prospect of an Obama Presidency? Could it be that his socialist/statist views and voting record are right up your average Commie's alley? That's exactly what I think ...
