ALERT: “Communist Party USA” Leader Drops Bombshell About the Democrat PartySunday, January 25th, 2015
Remember those Thanksgiving dinners when your slightly unhinged uncle would have one too many glasses of wine and start loudly declaring that the Democratic Party was the tool of the communists, until even the dyed-in-the-wool Republicans were walking out of the dining room?
Well, as it turns out, your uncle wasn’t all that far off. At least not according to the chairman of the Communist Party USA, who claims that the Democratic Party is just another tool for the struggle of the proletariat and their Macbook-clad supporters. Che!
In an article titled, “A radical third party? I agree!” CPUSA chairman John Batchell wrote, “At this stage we are about building the broad people’s movement led by labor that utilizes the vehicle of the Democratic Party to advance its agenda.”
Batchell said that, while he would rather work within the CPUSA to achieve change, for whatever reason, the idea of Soviet-style America just hasn’t caught on with the American public.
Therefore, since “the Democratic Party is also home to labor, African Americans, Latinos, other communities of color, women, most union members, young people, and a wide range of social and democratic movements,” they’re the appropriate vehicle to work with. (H/T Trevor Loudon.)

I’m guessing the tone of debate isn’t exactly one of Batchell’s major, or even minor, concerns.
“Our tactics also occur within the framework of our strategic policy of building a broad coalition to defeat the extreme right, which we see as the main danger to democracy and social progress, embodied within today’s Republican Party,” Batchell wrote.
“There are voting constituencies that presently support the GOP that have to be won over.”
“Such an approach sees the need to actively challenge right-wing and GOP ideas that influence sections of the people, especially working-class whites, for example, through hate talk radio. This includes racism and intolerance which are key issues dividing the working class.”
Gosh, I don’t know why they don’t support you. You don’t sound condescending to them at all!
Here’s a hint for Batchell: calling people racists just for the party they support probably isn’t the best way to win their affection.
It’s funny and revealing that a man representing a philosophy that’s killed millions of people worldwide views the GOP as the main danger to democracy and social progress.
It’s also revealing that his only argument is the prima facie assertion that Republicans are racist, “white supremacist” bigots, in an article expressing his support for the party that birthed the Klan.
And finally, it’s perhaps most revealing that nobody in the Democratic Party has stepped forward to disavow either Batchell, his comments, or the CPUSA.
The reason is simple: they’ll take any help they can get. Just look at ACORN.
So there you have it. Your uncle was right, after all. He still should have taken it easy on the shiraz, though.
Please like and share on Facebook and Twitter if you can’t tell any difference between the Democrats and communists, either.
