Recently, the chairman of the National Committee of the Communist Party USA has penned a 2,023-word manifesto making the critical point that American Communists are eager to work with the Democratic Party to advance the modern communist agenda and achieve communist goals
“Labor and other key social forces are not about to leave the Democratic Party anytime soon,” the Chairman promised. “They still see Democrats as the most realistic electoral vehicle” to fight against perceived class enemies.
Chairman Bachtell went on to say, “First, we are part of building the broadest anti-ultra-right alliance possible, uniting the widest array of class (including a section of monopoly), social and democratic forces. This necessarily means working with the Democratic Party,” the communist leader explained.
“Second, our objective is not to build the Democratic Party. 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,” Bachtell further expounded. “We are about building the movements around the issues roiling wide sections of people that can help shape election contours and debates.”
“We are for building movements in the electoral arena and see engagement in the electoral arena and democratic governance as a vital means to further build movements,” Bachtell also said. To that end, he claimed, “thousands of trade unionists have been elected” at municipal and local levels of American government.”
In 2012, a writer for the Communist Party USA said that “…re-electing Obama is absolutely essential,” and warned that “divisions among Democrats and a potential wave of bad economic news can combine to threaten Obama’s reelection.”
To explain, the Marxist went on to say, “Re-electing Obama is not sufficient to bring economic recovery or even relief to our people. Only a different class configuration in political power can do necessary minimum reforms to give us a chance. But re-electing Obama is absolutely essential. Now is not the time for hand washing the complexities and tactics away—or failing to triage the most critical questions from those that are less critical. We cannot win everything at once!”
The current Communist position was stated recently: The Communists, who for decades ran their own candidates for president and vice president but supported Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, don’t just like Hillary and Bernie. The party also gave a big thumbs-up to Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine.
“He’s a great choice,” wrote staffer Larry Rubin. “Kaine pushed the political envelope of Virginia, an erstwhile red southern state, in a progressive direction – and won! He was elected mayor of Richmond, then governor of the state and then senator. Everyone agrees: he’s a sincere, nice guy.”
Joseph Farah, a former revolutionary communist himself in his youth, said the CPUSA’s coverage was so effusive in its enthusiasm it put MSNBC to shame.
“Back in the day when Stalinists Gus Hall and Angela Davis were regularly nominated by the party as presidential and vice presidential candidates every four years, the U.S. Communists actually had beefs with the Democrats,” he said. “But, in recent years, the party ceased those efforts in favor of a united front with the Democrats, with whom they have very few differences, if any.”
Yes, the Democrats are truly the Marxist/Progressive Party or the Communist Party of the USA. The Communists have not changed their positions. They still profess the same ideology of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro, and Kim. The Democrats have changed their position to reflect the identical ideology of the above. This change became most notable with Wilson, and then continued with Roosevelt, Obama, and now Hillary Clinton. The Communists understand this movement and have jumped aboard, knowing they can arrive at the “fair and just classless society” of Marx by riding the coattails of the current Democrat (Marxist/Progressive, Communist) Party.
