Democrats once branded themselves as the party of the working guy; pro-union, pro-American manufacturing, pro-infrastructure and anti-communist, but in its embrace of the violent Communists and anarchists of ANTIFA and BLM today’s New Democratic Party looks nothing like the party of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and labor leaders Lane Kirkland and George Meany.
As leaders of the American Federation of Labor (AFL), and later the combined AFL-CIO in the 1950s, 60s, 70s and 80s, Kirkland and Meany were staunch anti-communists. American unions, under the leadership of Lane Kirkland, provided Poland’s anti-communist Solidarity movement with material, political, and moral support throughout its decade-long struggle, including for the election campaign that brought Solidarity leader Lech Walesa to power. This contribution was in keeping with a long tradition of assistance to the cause of free labor around the world, including in the communist world.
So, what would the leaders of your grandfather’s and grandmother’s Democratic Party think of Joe Biden accepting the endorsement of the leader of America’s Revolutionary Communist Party?
As a recent release from the Trump campaign noted, Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield made clear that “everybody who believes that Joe Biden should be president” is “welcome into this campaign.” That now includes Bob Avakian, the radical founder and leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party who just endorsed Joe Biden and instructed fellow communists to support Biden in the election.
Avakian once faced serious charges of rioting and assault for protesting in favor of Chinese communist Mao Zedong’s bloody and brutal regime. Avakian also titled his memoir My Journey from Mainstream America To Revolutionary Communist. “Bob Avakian has taken the whole idea and conception of communism to another level,” one of his admirers once wrote.
As author and historian of communist influence in the United States Diana West tweeted, “Basement Joe’s latest endorsement from Rbt Avakian is a vote from someone fighting to overthrow the US government for over half-century.”
Avakian’s endorsement further demonstrates that Joe Biden is an empty vessel for the radical left.
Indeed, Biden is seriously considering communist Rep. Karen Bass (CA-37) to be his running mate. Bass praised Fidel Castro, traveled to Cuba many times as part of a radical communist revolutionary group that trained in terrorist tactics, and eulogized a Communist Party USA member as her “mentor” in 2017.
In their 2010 book, Black Los Angeles: American Dreams and Racial Realities, progressive authors Darnell Hunt and Ana-Christina Ramon write that Bass, in a 2008 interview, provided them with many details about her days as a student at Alexander Hamilton High School on the Westside of Los Angeles. The authors quote Bass as having told them:
“It [the white Left] played a huge role for me. In Hamilton [High School] for example, a lot of the Jewish parents were activists and some of them were in the Communist Party. And so I grew up with a lot of red diaper babies [a slang term for children whose parents were members of the Communist Party USA during the Cold War]. And there were some African American parents who were in the Communist Party. There were teachers who were in the Communist Party. So, white radicals were very influential. And at the same time you have the [Black] Panthers and the whole black movement.”
As Discover the Networks documented, in 1973, Bass began a long-term involvement with the Venceremos Brigade (VB), a Cuban Communist front group founded in 1969 by Fidel Castro and the radical members of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), and administered by the Cuban intelligence service, the General Directorate for Intelligence (DGI).
Portraying itself as a well-intentioned group of volunteers dedicated only to helping poor Cubans harvest sugar cane, VB’s real purpose was, as bestselling authors and political commentators David Horowitz and Peter Collier explained in their 2005 book Destructive Generation: “to meet Cuban and Vietnamese officials in Havana to map out strategies for the war in America, the ‘other war,’ which would ultimately defeat the United States in a way that the battlefield situation in Vietnam never could have.”
Said Horowitz in a later interview with Breitbart.com: “The big propaganda was that the [American] imperialists had made Cuba a one-crop country, which was sugar cane. And under Castro the production of sugar cane went down dramatically. And so they called on American volunteers to help them harvest sugar cane. But they also trained them politically.” That training included, among other things, instruction in the use of arms, explosives, and guerrilla warfare techniques. During the Seventies, Bass personally made eight trips to Cuba as a “brigandista.”
A 1976 FBI report stated that the long-term objective of the Cuban intelligence officials who ran the Venceremos Brigade was: “the recruitment of individuals who are politically oriented and who someday may obtain a position, elective or appointive, somewhere in the U.S. Government, which would provide the Cuban Government with access to political, economic and military intelligence.”
This is who Biden may put a heartbeat away from the presidency.
Joe Biden is too weak to be president and too weak to stand up to the radical left. He’s nothing more than an empty vessel for the extremist fringe of the new Marxist Democrat Party, a terrifying cabal which now includes active communist leaders and those who have been, for decades, committed to overthrowing our American constitutional republic and replacing it with a violent socialist oligarchy.
