Once a nation becomes socialist, they aren’t far from becoming communist.
Both are opposite to capitalism, with no private ownership of anything.
In other words, everyone suffers the same.
So if you plan to vote for Hillary Clinton, you should know that Communist Party USA just gave her their endorsement.
So with all this attention to Trump on David Duke, surely you read the news about John Bachtell, right? He endorsed Hillary and the headlines were everywhere. Oh, wait, sorry. Mr. Bachtell’s Hillary endorsement was apparently not newsy enough to make the mainstream media headlines. Curious, yes? If the endorsement of Trump by the ex-head of the Ku Klux Klan is big news, one would expect a Hillary endorsement by the head of the Communist Party USA would be a big deal as well.
That’s right. Hillary-supporter Bachtell is, as seen here, the very proud “national chair of the Communist Party USA.” That’s right, Mr. Bachtell is a literal card-carrying Communist. You recall the Communists, yes? The folks who produced Stalin and Mao? The advocates of a political philosophy that is described in The Black Book of Communism as being responsible for “between 85 million and 100 million” deaths? in “the most colossal case of political carnage in history.” Ring a bell? The Soviet Union? The Cold War? The Iron Curtain? Korea? Vietnam? The Khmer Rouge? Come on, you remember.
Apparently the mainstream media does not remember what Mr. Bachtell’s Communist Party represents — or maybe it’s something else. Maybe, just maybe, the media doesn’t care about Hillary receiving the Communist Party chairman’s endorsement because, well, if you’re a lefty to begin with there’s nothing seen as out of the ordinary much less wrong with this.
Bachtell’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton focuses on the idea that there may be some Communists and others on the left who are unfortunately tempted to vote for Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein to “send a message” to Hillary and the Democrats that they are not far left enough. Bachtell sees this as a “flawed strategy” and heaps praise on Clinton as being the only way to save the country from Donald Trump, whom he sees as “a clear and present danger, an unpredictable candidate in an unpredictable election.”
John Bachtell, head of the Communist Party, says…
This election will be a national referendum on racism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia and Islamophobia. The aim should be a landslide defeat of Trump and a decisive rejection of hate.
The election of Clinton as the first woman president would make history. A landslide would not end sexism, but it would represent a mighty blow just as the election of President Obama was a blow against racism. It would advance democracy.
A landslide makes it more likely that GOP Congressional and state legislative majorities can be ousted and an end put to the politics of obstruction. Most people tend to vote straight ticket.
A landslide will give added weight to the progressive platform adopted at the Democratic Convention and give encouragement to appoint progressive Supreme Court justices. It would be added pressure against backsliding on opposition to TPP and other trade deals. It will put public opinion and the movements in a better position to pressure against Clinton’s tendency toward military adventurism and policies of regime change.
With a Democratic president and Congress the post-election political terrain will shift and give immediate momentum to the new Clinton administration.
How about that?
Also, let’s not forget that Clinton was also endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan.
