CPUSA Celebrates Obama’s ‘Voter Drive’

A little tidbit from the CPUSA’s Peoples World (formerly, the Daily Worker) that almost slipped past us:

Organizing for America launches grassroots 2010 voter drive

by: Dan Margolis
May 14 2010

The importance of the 2010 mid-term elections, not only to elect or re-elect a local member of Congress or governor, but also to further the progressive direction of the country, is not widely understood. Only a few, most notably the labor movement and its allies, have already drawn up plans for mobilization

But Organizing for America aims to change that.

Seeking to build on the momentum of the historic presidential election of 2008, and to counter the alarming increase in extreme-right wing activism since then, especially in the tea party movement, Organizing for America, the grassroots organization allied with President Obama, has launched a national on-the-ground effort to expand the Democratic majority.

“Organizing for America” is “allied with President Obama” in the sense that it is his campaign operation. Much like “Hitler über Deutschland” (Hitler Over Germany) was “allied” with Hitler.

The 2010 elections are just as important as the 2008 elections, many say. This fall’s elections will determine whether the country continues to move in a progressive direction, away from the past 30 years of extremist rule. It provides the opportunity to "bring home" the victory against the ultra-right, and knock more Republicans out of Congress. On the other hand, victories by the Republican ultra-right would slam on the brakes and significantly narrow the channels for progressive action.

OFA makes the point that the mid-term elections are crucial. In order to push forward on government action for job creation, labor rights, civil rights, environmental reform and other issues important to working people, the Republicans’ base must be further chipped away – not allowed to grow.

Grassroots organizing by labor and others can increase both the Democrats’ majority and the number of progressives in Congress in November. The OFA offensive enhances that possibility. As has generally been the case, OFA’s current electoral strategy parallels that of labor

What a coincidence! Won’t the SEIU be surprised to hear this.

The organization vows to "re-connect with these millions of Americans, both young and old."

These voters could make the difference in the fall elections. Polls that show the Republicans and Democrats neck-and-neck in some places focus only on "likely" voters, meaning that less frequent voters – who are more likely to vote against the ultra-right – are not counted. And non-voters are not counted at all. OFA is also running a voter registration campaign.

After all, ACORN is can’t do it all, not these days. Besides, this is the one thing that Mr. Obama knows how to do. Heck, he even gave ACORN lessons in voter fraud registration.

"Our work isn’t finished," President Obama said, in announcing the 2010 campaign project. "Today the [blood sucking] health insurance companies, the [Jewish] Wall Street banks and the [rest of the ultra rightwing] special interests who have ruled Washington for too long are already focused on November’s Congressional elections. They see these elections as a chance to put their allies back in power and to undo all that we’ve accomplished."

Notice that the radical left got Mr. Obama’s message ‘loud and clear.’ — the interpolations, in brackets. The CPUSA and the rest of the radical left know exactly what he is saying here, however masked it is by ‘code words.’

Obama continuedIt will be up to each of you to make sure that the young people, African Americans, Latinos and women that powered our victory in 2008 to stand together once again."

Yes, sir. Nothing brings the country together like ‘post racial politics.’

Mr. Hitler would be proud.

    “This fall’s elections will determine whether the country continues to move in a progressive direction, away from the past 30 years of extremist rule.”

    To quote Rush, “They always tell you who they fear.” 30 years of extremist rule?!

    Reagan was an extremist? Bush 41 was an extremist? Clinton was still is a turd! Bush 43 was an extremist? But nerobama is NOT an extremist? Did I miss the memo that today is opposite day or something?

    After about 1935, 99% of the country was solidly behind Comrade Stalin.

    The 50 million who had opposed him made decisions to stop voting.

    • Right of the People says:

      Unless you’re in Chicago, it’s hard to vote from the grave.

      Like they say, vote early and often.

    Current Communist Goals



    Thursday, January 10, 1963

    Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

    At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

    [From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]


    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

    8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

    9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

    10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

    11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

    13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

    14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

    43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

    44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

    45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

    Well, GBJ, according to that list, they’re right on schedule and can put a check mark by each one. How about confiscation of property of private property for ‘the collective?’ Today’s news:

    • Right of the People says:

      Like the article says, it would be better to close Morris’ Line than upgrade it. The port is tiny with a building not much more than a shack. It’s right in the middle of nowhere. There are ports Highgate about 6 miles west of it and West Richford about 8 miles to the east that could be used instead. It is the favorite of the old time INS guys because no one comes through there. A good place to spend a peaceful day or evening.
