CONGRATS… Communist Party USA Endorses Barack Obama and Democrats For 2012 Election

NewImageObama just received a critical endorsement, The Communist Party USA. The Communist Party USA leader, Sam Webb, explains why he will continue to support Obama and Democrats in 2012. The Communist Party USA has consistently supported and infiltrated the Democratic Party.

Also note, Sam Webb, the leader of the party, called Obama a friend back in 2008.

Sam Webb Via People’s World:

It is obvious that there is a growing feeling of frustration and even anger among supporters of the Democratic Party with its performance over the past two years.

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, speaking for the labor movement, strongly expressed this unhappiness in some recent speeches.

I am disappointed too with some aspects of the Obama administration’s domestic and foreign policy.

But I don’t forget that this administration governs in a very hostile political environment in which the right is laboring overtime to wreck its initiatives at every step of the way.

In addition, there are the structural pressures of governing in a capitalist economy and state.

Then there are conservative pressures coming from some congressional Democrats and members of the administration.

Everything can’t be explained away by the objective context, however. The president and his administration can be faulted for a number of policy decisions.

But the main question from a strategic point of view is this: Does it make any difference, from the standpoint of the class and democratic struggles, which party gains political ascendency?

Some – though not the labor movement nor other mass organizations of the American people – say no, it doesn’t.

Some even go a step further and say a Democratic victory creates popular illusions, which in turn weaken the people’s struggles. And the only way out of this vise is to form a third party now.

Communists don’t agree with either one of these views. In our view, the differences between the two parties of capitalism are of consequence to class and democratic struggles.

Neither party is anti-capitalist, but they aren’t identical either. Differences exist at the levels of policy and social composition. And despite the many frustrations of the past two years, the election of Barack Obama was historic and gave space to struggle for a people’s agenda.

If, on the other hand, the Republicans had been victorious in 2008 the character of class and democratic struggles would have unfolded very differently. Our movement would have been on the defensive from Day One, the Democrats would be running for cover, and the Republicans would have an unfettered hand in their efforts to liquidate the welfare state, roll back the rights revolution of the 1930s and 1960s, and crush the people’s movement – labor in the first place.

As for the wisdom of a third party, we have always advocated the formation of an independent people’s party at the core of which are the working class and labor, racially and nationally oppressed people, women, youth, immigrants, seniors, gay and straight, etc. It is essential for any deep-going social change. But its realization depends on more than our desire, more than our political-ideological attitude. Millions who have to be at the core of this party still operate under the umbrella of the Democratic Party, albeit increasingly in an independent fashion.

Moreover, to separate ourselves at this moment from these forces would be contrary to our strategic policy of building maximum unity against right-wing extremism now and in next year’s elections.

Now that doesn’t mean that we give up our advocacy of an independent people’s party, but we also understand that its formation is dictated by concrete political realities and strategic necessities. Nor does it mean that we hit the mute button when the Obama administration takes positions that we don’t agree with. Just as we show no hesitation in supporting, and fighting for, the administration’s progressive initiatives, we should have no compunction about taking issue with the administration when it takes positions that we don’t agree on.

Which is what we have done.

When someone says we are not critical of the administration what they usually mean is that our criticism isn’t as sweeping and categorical as they would like.

We make criticisms, but we do it in a certain context and with a certain strategic objective in mind. We are keenly aware of the fact that the agenda of the far right is to bring this administration and country to its knees, with a heavy dose of racism, lies and economic sabotage, setting the stage for a full blown return to power of the most reactionary, racist, anti-labor, anti-women, homophobic and militarist grouping in U.S. politics.

We want no part of that. We don’t have any illusions about the Democratic Party, but we don’t have any illusions about the Republican Party either.

Furthermore, we are also aware of the undeniable fact that no other party besides the Democratic Party stands a chance of beating the GOP next year.

I’m sure Obama will win in 2012 now.. yeah right.

  1. Even Communist Party USA knows that the Democrat Party does their work for them.

    • Kittermancorner says:

      Is there really any difference from a communist & a democrat…………they both fear Republicans because they know they won’t take their crap at the taax payers expense!

    I think that it is a real shame that most of the naive folks who call themselves Communists have no idea that the Neoconservative movement of George W Bush was started by an avid Trotskyite named Irving Kristol.

    If these people were capable of putting basic facts such as this into perspective, then they would be able to understand that mainstream Republicans and Democrats are virtually identical for the most part.

    Republicans and Democrats are both building a totalitarian state, and the only real alternative is a true limited government Constitutionalist such as Ron Paul.

  3. Communist support Obama..What a shock!..)sarcasm)

  4. Love says:

    THIS SHOULD BE ALL THE MORE REASON NOT TO VOTE FOR A DEMOCRAP=COMMUNIST!!

  5. Coloradoforfreedom says:

    To paraphrase “Animal Mother” from the movie Full Metal Jacket……”All fucking communists should die!”

    Gary, Dean, Colorado, Pete, and Rated, while I am not a communist, I am shocked and saddened by the clear lack of understanding shown by your responses.  You show a clear lack of basic political understandings when you reference Russia and Cuba, neither of whom was actually communist.  in fact, neither of them was truly socialist, either.  It also seems you didn’t read the above letter, for you would have seen that the vitriol and call for violence is precisely what Zippers was referencing when he said we all need the GOP to NOT win next year.  His letter was by no means a ringing endorsement of Obama and the Democrats (who are not socialists, communists, or anything similar).

    For our entire country’s sake, please go read up on what these political systems intend and represent, recognize that we have NEVER seen a country-wide attempt at either true socialism or anything even vaguely resembling true communism, and hopefully better understand the country and world in which we live.

    All of you said how i feel I down have any thing else to add

  12. Skyghost3 says:

    This is a article of hope. They know Obama is a communist and that he wants the New World Order implemented. The communist want the same thing. They are liars and they know it and they know that we know it. The Republicans are making an effort to get this deficit down and keep the debt ceiling where it is. The House went on vacation and the Senate is planning too but Harry Reid has threatened to cancel that. He might make that work and he might not. He cannot do anything until the matters are cleared because it won’t pass. If Obama goes off too then things are on hold again. If August 2 comes and goes then so what. They have the money to pay the bills and they do not have to raise the ceiling. Idoits like the writers above have a mixed up frame of mind. We now for sure know that Obama is linked to the communist and the Democratic party may well be too. We really have to get him out as fast as possible and not give in and give him any spending money. The least foreign aid and UN aid we pay the better. We are already looking at a serious war at the end of the summer because of this guy and we have to be ready to defend the home front as well. Hitler is back and we have to fight him again.

    yeah go to china and see  what rights you have to say and critize the goverment, remember tiamamine square,u  would be lock up w/no  legal rights and imprisioned for life you comunist schmucks

  14. Then….Sam, I suggest you take your ass Elsewhere and DO the WORK REQUIRED…This countrys’ forebears did…now you and your lazy, greedy, self centered, godless UN-Men need to accept the country which gave you voice…or GET OUT

  15. What propaganda!  BS at it’s finest

    • george says:

      not BS … Satire … except it will take time and research to find the satire…  you can’t tell where Reality ends and the Satire begins.

  16. FSM_47 says:

    The old symbiotic relationship.  Communists are out of the closet looking for handouts from the working elements via taxes and the Democrats are lining up to give provide them.

  17. Where is there a link to this? I don;t see it on the CPUSA site, and the 08 article is down off the other one.

    Did the Oval Office get it plastered over that quick?

  18. Philipevans86 says:

    Communists beware, you will all bite the dust sooner than you think.

  19. Notadualcov says:

    As for me, I am pro union and I am pro-life and I am against gay marriage. I don’t have a political party.

  20. Communists and those who support them should all be boiled alive in raw sewage

  21. Is anybody really surprised over any of this?   Remember, the axis is islam, AFL-CIO, left wing elected officials.  All working in concert to take down the USA.

    • Jvksdimick says:

      The unions/afl-cio strongly support communism yet they lie to their members and the members too ignorant to read for themselves just buy the lies.

  22. Anonymous says:

    No big surprise here.  Obama attracts all elements who are intent on taking this great country down to their level.  True Americans need to rise up and defeat Obama, the Comunist Party, the left wing Progressive people and the just plain evil who for money want this country to go down.  Do your own research, see what the unions, atheists, communists and just evil politicians have done to the supreme court and the economy of our country.   Then get off you duff and vote these corupt people out and perhaps they will leave ou great country for a lesser country that suits thier evil plans.

    The problem with commies is they don’t start with any values save for protesting the values of personal peace and affluence that replaced the Christian worldview in Western thought.This love of communism started in the early 60s,you see on film on the protests for free speech on campuses a protestor citing Marxism as an influence.The Dems,whilst being on the wrong side of the civil rights issue at times in the 60s(George Wallace),began to embrace the Marxist/Leninist philosophy.And the media soon followed suit,this thought slowly creeping into entertainment.

  24. Vadkos2002 says:

    we will bring these would-be tyrann’s , Communists evil inhumane bastards down and wipe them out off history . They were defeated almost everywhere in the world in the pas 60 years but now the seem to have found an asylum here in this great country and trying to impose their destructive agenda absolutely deliberately to found another tyranny . It is just not right … Their end is very,very close

    This article is so far off base, it’s disgusting. But then again, that’s what Obummer attracts.

  27. Jackshredder says:

    Valid points, one and all. I feel like they might hold a scratch of credibility if any of this article was true. Alas, it is not.

  28. Anonymous says:

    Enlightening. It’s a shame this message doesn’t get more publicity. I think the Democrats should show their generosity and give the CPUSA the money to publish and broadcast this message nationwide, so that all people can see how much support Obama gets from the people that count.
