The Communist Party USA is celebrating Barack Obama’s re-election victory, according to two reports published since Tuesday.
Trevor Loudon wrote Thursday that Sam Webb, leader of the Communist Party USA, "hailed the election of Party ‘friend’ Barack Obama, as the ‘dawn of a new era.’”
"The Party is cock-a-hoop over Obama’s victory, seeing it as both a repudiation of the conservative agenda and an opportunity to move the United States further towards socialism," Loudon wrote.
"The Communist Party said a year ago that the 2012 elections would be the main front of the class and democratic struggle, and subsequent events have confirmed that fact," Webb wrote at the Communist People’s World Tuesday.
Jim Hoft posted a screenshot of another article at the People’s World celebrating Obama’s victory. That article, published the day after Tuesday’s election, declares "We won!"
