The Communist Party of the USA prefers Barak Obama

Democrats, Socialists, Marxists, and Unions everywhere must be so proud.

",...Notably, the labor movement has stepped up its independent mobilization for this election. It is leading an unprecedented campaign to educate and unify its ranks to elect the nation’s first African American president. Last week, AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Richard Trumka told the Steelworkers convention that there is “no evil that’s inflicted more pain and more suffering than racism — and it’s something we in the labor movement have a special responsibility to challenge.”

If Obama’s candidacy represented nothing more than the spark for this profound initiative to unite the working class and defeat the pernicious influence of racism, it would be a transformative candidacy that would advance progressive politics for the long term.

The struggle to defeat the ultra-right and turn our country on a positive path will not end with Obama’s election. But that step will shift the ground for successful struggles going forward.

One thing is clear. None of the people’s struggles — from peace to universal health care to an economy that puts Main Street before Wall Street — will advance if McCain wins in November.

Let’s keep our eyes on the prize."

Nazis, skinheads, and every right-wing paramilitary group under every rock. McVeigh and Nichols' old buddies in the Michigan Militia are no doubt quite peeeeed off McCain's bailed on that state.

Nazis, skinheads, and every right-wing paramilitary group under every rock...don't typically vote Republican. Some of them don't vote at all because they have issues with being identified by the government - even to vote - and those that do typically vote Libertarian.

Especially the right wing paramilitary groups, and I know this from personal experience growing up with relatives who were involved in the Libertarian Party in NWO and Michigan.

How many of these guys have you ever spoken with McCaskey? I'd suggest that you are making an incorrect assumption from what I've personally experienced.

We don't remember days only moments...

For the sake of keeping a black candidate from becoming President, they would not vote McCain? Is David Duke on the ballot? The ghost of George Wallace?

They don't see it that way, some see it as the opposite that if a black president wins it will actually help them. Many of these groups, especially some of the militias believe our government will fail and that they are the ones who will take over when that happens.

They look at both parties and both candidates with disdain. I'd also point out that some of these groups are not exactly cool with feminism, so McCain selecting Palin would not please them.

Well we know, Senator Byrd, the former Klansman himself supports Obama.

"It aimed to reverse the interlocking changes sweeping over the South during Reconstruction: to destroy the Republican party's infrastructure" 

 

"The Ku Klux Klan soon spread into nearly every southern state, launching a "reign of terror" against Republican leaders both black and white"

 

"Lifting the Klan mask revealed a chaotic multitude of antiblack vigilante groups, disgruntled poor white farmers, wartime guerrilla bands, displaced Democratic politicians"

 

"Klan delegates played a significant role at the path-setting 1924 Democratic National Convention in New York City, often called the "Klanbake Convention". The convention initially pitted Klan-backed candidate William Gibbs McAdoo against Catholic New York Governor Al Smith. "

A few neo-Nazis and racist fanatics support Obama because they think this will ignite a race war, but most of them either: a) dismiss contemporary politics as a sham manipulated by DA JOOS; b) field a couple of kooks like John Taylor Bowles, the presidential candidate of the National Socialist Order of America (a splinter group of the old NSM); or c) pinch their noses and get behind Bob Barr or Ron Paul, who they consider to be race traitors but whose quasi-libertarianism meshes with some of their anti-government beliefs.

that neither Nazis...nor white supremists...nor Communists (opening-thread topic)...will turn out voting numbers neccessary to swing the election either way or have any direct impact on the results, 'official endorsements' notwithstanding.

who gives a F--- what the communist party of the USA prefers about anything???

Somehow, this thread started on this website.
http://swampbubbles.com/bubble/economists-prefer-obama

And when you read the article, you actually find out that it isn't "economists" that prefer Obama, it's Economy reasearch assistants with 46% Democrats and 10% Republican economy students responding.

http://www.economist.com/world/unitedstates/displaystory.cfm?story_id=12...

"Our survey is not, by any means, a scientific poll of all economists. We e-mailed a questionnaire to 683 research associates, all we could track down, of the National Bureau of Economic Research, America’s premier association of applied academic economists, though the NBER itself played no role in the survey. A total of 142 responded, of whom 46% identified themselves as Democrats, 10% as Republicans and 44% as neither. This skewed party breakdown may reflect academia’s Democratic tilt,"

So, if that passes as news to the Obama supporters, then the CPUSA endorsement should be "news" to Democrats also.

Don't blame me,
