I hear so many of these pundits and politicians loudly and righteously proclaim that you cannot defeat your enemy if you refuse to name him. And yet when it comes to naming the real and present threat of Marxism or Communism here in the United States, these same pundits and politicians meekly refer to this evil as the left, liberal, or progressive movement, and do not identify these people as Marxist. The same rule would hold true for Marxists as it does for Islamic Terrorist.
The Marxist or Communist movement has been present in the United States since before the turn of the 20th Century. The first clearly identifiable Marxist to be elected as our Head of State would have been Woodrow Wilson. Wilson was a devoted student of George Hegel, the same philosopher who so greatly influenced Marx.
The next clearly identifiable Marxist elected to be our Head of State would have been Franklin Roosevelt. During FDR’s first campaign and in the early years of his administration, the Communist Party of the United States (CPUSA) openly opposed Roosevelt. They believed he was a front for capitalism. By the late 1930’s the CPSUA had reversed its opinion and openly endorsed Roosevelt, choosing to not even have a candidate of its own. The records show that the Soviet leadership and the Comintern supported the position of the CPUSA based on the policies of the Roosevelt regime.
The chairman of the Communist Party USA, John Bachtell recently declared that Democrats offer the “most realistic electoral vehicle” in the fight against greedy Wall Street capitalists, the Tea Party, white supremacists and right-wing evangelicals. Bachtell, said that American Communists are ready to align with the Democrat Party to achieve their goals. This should be no surprise to anybody since Obama and Bachtell sing the same song. Yet, the politicians and the pundits on the right refuse to forgo political correctness and refer to Obama and his beliefs as what they are; Marxists, just as Obama refuses to call the terrorist what they are; Islamic Terrorists.
