Soros/Trumka/CPUSA: GOP Pledge Racist

From the Communist Party USA’s Peoples World (formerly known as the Daily Worker):

Labor takes on racism in GOP "Pledge"

by: Dan Margolis
October 12 2010

The Republican Party’s platform for the mid-term elections, its "Pledge to America," is already regarded by most progressives and moderates as something that, if enacted, would be a huge step backwards.

Now, a new report  confirms what many could have easily guessed: the Pledge has a sharply racist edge.

This "new report" (a pdf file) is from the Soros-funded Center For American Progress.

The racism can be detected even at first glance, wrote AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka.

"It shows off photos of 384 white people by our count," the labor leader said. "One Asian American. A musician who might be Asian. One young man in military cam who may be Latino. And if you look very, very closely, five African Americans. A total of eight people of color."

"What America are they pledging to?" Trumka asked.

Has it really come to this? Counting people in photographs? Remember when such ‘tokenism’ used to be mocked? Well, not anymore. This is Richard Trumka’s idea of America.

Trumka pointed out that 34 percent of the population of the United States is non-white, and went on to ask why "agenda-setters in the Republican machinery think it’s OK to ignore more than a third of the population … including (no coincidence) those who look like President Barack Obama."

Wouldn’t Martin Luther King, Jr be proud?

But the racism goes deeper than the pictures. While the policies in the Pledge, if enacted, slash services and harm the livelihoods of all working Americans, Blacks, Latinos and Asians would suffer the most

Naturally. But just like the rest of the Democrat Party the CPUSA/Soros stooges aren’t satisfied by dividing us just along racial lines, they also want to whip up some class warfare:

While the Republicans don’t want to extend tax cuts to regular working people, as President Obama advocates, they do favor extending Bush tax cuts for people who make over $250,000 yearly – the richest two percent of the population…

Never mind that the Republicans want to extend the tax cuts for everyone, regardless of their melanin content or income level.

On the other hand, neither Obama nor Mr. Soros nor Mr. Trumka want to extend these cuts for anyone. And if it were not an election year, they would not even be pretending otherwise.

This tax cut, which would give an average of $100,000 to each of the richest Americans, would cost the country $830 billion over the next decade. To make up for this, a 21 percent cut in spending on non-military discretionary programs would be necessary, meaning, for example, a $15 billion cut to education.

This absurd nonsense isn’t the CPUSA’s fantasy. This is straight from the Soros stooges at the the Center For American Progress. Lest we forget, these people are Mr. Obama’s ‘go to’ advisors, his ‘think tank.’ Logic — even reality — mean absolutely nothing to them.

For how on earth would extending tax cuts that we have had for the last ten years mean that we would suddenly have to cut spending by 21 percent? The CAP will simply say anything to try to whip up their benighted base.

"At a time when graduation rates among communities of color lag behind white students and an achievement gap persists in our education system, communities of color can ill afford these reductions," noted Carrk.

In the Center For American Progress’s brief seven page propaganda pamphlet, the phrase "of color" gets mentioned 28 times. But of course it is the GOP who are the race baiters and fear mongers.

The Pledge would do away with Obama’s signature health care reform even though, as Carrk wrote, "the mortality rate for African Americans was 1.6 times higher than for whites; half of Latinos and more than 25 percent of African Americans do not have a regular doctor, compared to 20 percent of white Americans; and people of color are more likely to suffer from a chronic disease such as diabetes or hypertension. Communities of color represent more than half of the uninsured population."

You see, the Republicans want to kill "people of color."

And, instead of promising bipartisan reform of the immigration system, as Obama and most Democrats have advocated, the Pledge looks to adopt Arizona’s draconian approach.

That draconian approach that is favored by two thirds of the citizenry – of all colors. That is the epitome of "bipartisan."

"If people of color needed a reason to vote in the November election," said James Parks of the AFL-CIO, "the Republican Party gave them a handful." …

Nazi Germany’s top Jew hating propagandist Julius Streicher would have been proud of the CAP’s subtle ways.

Trumka, Carrk and others argue that, to better living standards for all working people, a united fightback [sic] is necessary.

Trumka said that the recent One Nation rally was an example of such a united fight. It was a rally that would "issue a very different pledge to America. One that I – a white guy – will be part of, along with my brothers and sisters of many colors, many beliefs, many backgrounds."

It would have been fun to see what would have happened to anyone who was foolish enough to express a divergent view at the ‘One Nation’ (One Volk, One Fuhrer) rally.

The rally, which brought over 100,000 people out to fight for jobs, better public education and immigration reform, was initiated by the Service Employees International Union and the NAACP.

Two groups that are world famous for their tolerance of diversity of thought.

Noting "there will be no ethnic majority in the United States by the year 2050," Carrk argued "neglecting communities of color will have disastrous consequences for the long-term prosperity of our nation."

Gosh, that sounds almost like a threat, doesn’t it? In fact, it is exactly the kind of threat that filled the Mr. Streicher’s Der Sturmer on a weekly basis.

    Last time I checked, this bloated union thug is pigment challenged.

    Maybe the Republicans should have invited Trumka to a pledge event to inject some diversity. He is after all, a communist, greaseball, union thug, bottom feeding lawyer.

    And if Trumka looked at photos of Me & Obama – he’d see a white woman and a black man – and be wrong in his identification of both. That is what is so grand (or used to be) about America – the melting pot that makes it really, really hard to identify the ethnicity of a person beyond – AMERICAN.

    I am like so insulted that he did not discuss the percentage of wimin’ folk nor even mention the aggrieved victim class of the day – the radical terrorists who happen to be islamic. Shame on him. I guess some pigs are just more equal than other pigs.

    I do dislike people who point out the speck of dirt on someone else’s face while ignoring the blood on their own hands.

    God Help America

    I guess white isn’t a color?
    One doesn’t have to wait until 2050 to see the damage done to the community called America in less than 2……..two years, folks!
    Talk about a bunch of gonads……..

  4. Mithrandir says:

    They have their script of racism, they just need to fill – in – the – blanks: Tea Party, Republicans, Contract with America II,

    And…..they are just going to beat the drum, and it doesn’t matter about engaging in debate, or proving it, they just beat the drum and plug their ears.
