A Beginner’s Guide To American Communist Parties: Part 1


The ideology of Communism has always been a threat to the Founding Fathers’ vision of a Republic accountable to WE THE PEOPLE, Liberty, and Biblical Moral principles forming the backbone to make America good (of interest on a Biblically moral America: HERE and HERE). With that in  mind Noisy Room is posting Trevor Loudon’s exposé on contemporary Communism in the Democratic Party today.

It’s been this author’s experience that most American journalists, politicians, police officers, and even intelligence officers have minimal understanding of America’s contemporary communist movement.

 

The average American voter, naturally, has very few outlets available that acknowledge the continued existence and influence of contemporary communism. Yet, communism is currently the single most important political and cultural influence in the country. Therefore, thumbnail sketches are provided here that outline the more significant domestic communist organizations currently working to undermine the Constitution and impose socialism on the American people.

 

A word on communism versus socialism: Socialism is a euphemism for communism. They are two peas in the same pod and all lead to tyranny. Communism is socialism, and those who want you to believe otherwise are attempting to indoctrinate you. Period.

 

There are two American “lefts”: Communists willing to work with and inside the Democratic Party to achieve their goals; and communists who regard the Democrats as a hopelessly “bourgeois” “capitalist” party.

 

The first group are more organized, realistic, and dangerous. The second group, like the first, often work with foreign communists and are more likely to engage in street-level violence.

 

Part 1 of this article will deal with the communists who work with the Democratic party, as a matter of policy. These organizations are the most subversive and dangerous in America.

 

Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)

 

Despite their public regular protestations, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is a communist organization. Many of their 55,000+ members are indoctrinated college students, but most of their leaders are hard-core Marxist revolutionaries.

 

Currently the United States’ largest Marxist organization, the DSA was formed in 1982 out of two similar groups. The larger was the “Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee” that mainly consisted of older activists from the rapidly imploding Socialist Party USA. The smaller was the “New American Movement” that consisted of young Vietnam War-era “Students for a Democratic Society” members and a group of older radicals who split from the Communist Party after the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968.

 

The most enduring influence in the DSA is Antonio Gramsci. An Italian communist theoretician, Gramsci believed in promoting socialism through patient infiltration of all political and cultural institutions before resorting to revolutionary violence.

 

Americans of all political persuasions may be surprised to learn that the DSA was initially very influential in the Democratic Party. The DSA helped establish the Congressional Progressive Caucus in 1991 with long-time ally Bernie Sanders and was successful in electing hundreds of Democratic Party officials, many local politicians, and several congressmembers.

 

Currently serving Congress members Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Danny Davis (D-IL), and Jerry Nadler (D-NY) have all been dues-paying DSA comrades at some point. In the last election, the DSA elected more than 20 local and state officials and two additional Congress members, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

 

DSA influence waned through the early 2000s and by 2015, the organization was down to about 6,000 members, only about a third of whom were active.

 

Bernie Sanders changed all that. The DSA has backed Sanders since at least 1990. When he ran for president, the DSA became the backbone of his team. As Sanders took off, so did the DSA. When President Donald Trump got elected, DSA membership exploded, and is only now starting to slow, and in some places reverse.

 

The DSA now has more than 200 chapters in all 50 states. DSA strongholds are Boston, New York, Washington, DC, Chicago, Detroit, Seattle, Portland, Oregon, the Bay Area, and Southern California, but almost every significant city in America — and many small towns — now have DSA chapters. New York City’s DSA branch boasts more than 3,000 dues-paying members; Austin, Texas, claims 700, and Portland, Oregon, has 800. These numbers have given the DSA huge ability to penetrate the Democratic Party in almost every state.

 

The DSA also controls an organization that gives backing to hard-left candidates called “Our Revolution,” which boasts 100,000 members working vigilantly to carry on the Sanders movement. Our Revolution’s door-knockers and phone bankers give the DSA the ability to elect comrades to Democratic committees and leadership posts all over the country. In July 2018, the Washington Post reported that the DSA “has never had more adherents or more clout.”

 

The DSA has a Religious Commission featuring many pastors, church officials, theologians, and religious academics vigilantly indoctrinating malleable minds that Christianity and socialism go hand-in-hand.

 

The DSA is also huge in the colleges. In the early days, nearly a third of DSA members were academics. Today, the youth-wing of the DSA is known as the YDSA and is featured on campuses across America.

 

For most of its existence, the DSA was formally affiliated with the Socialist International (SI), an alliance of more than 100 socialist and social democratic political parties. At their annual conference in Chicago in 2017, the DSA officially pulled out of the SI based on them being too moderate, allying instead with several European communist-oriented parties. The DSA is particularly close to Die Linke (The Left), which is the direct ancestor of the old Stalinist East German Communist Party.

 

In the 1980s, the DSA worked closely with Luis Inacio Lula da Silva, who eventually became the socialist president of Brazil. “Lula” then worked with Cuban president Fidel Castro to elect socialist governments across most of Latin America, known broadly as the “Red Tide.”

 

Prominent DSA members have included theologian professor Cornel West; the late father of the socialized healthcare movement and former Obama family doctor Quentin Young; Obama immigration adviser Eliseo Medina; actor Ed Asner; feminist Gloria Steinem; Muslim activist Linda Sarsour; and convicted East German spy Kurt Stand.

 

Communist Party USA (CPUSA)

 

The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) was started in 1919 in Chicago, where it is headquartered today. In the 1940s, the CPUSA had over 100,000 members. With only 5,000 comrades, the CPUSA is not as large as it once was, but is still a political force with clout.

 

While the CPUSA has comrades in every state, it’s strongest in Boston, New York, Connecticut, Philadelphia, Missouri, Chicago, Detroit, Northern and Central Texas, Arizona, and California. The party has considerable influence in organizations such as the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, the U.S. Peace Council, Jobs with Justice, Alliance for Retired Americans, and dozens of smaller local front groups. The CPUSA is very active in the labor, environmental, and the “racial justice” movements. The CPUSA has systemically worked to recruit black pastors to cement their influence over the Democratic-voting black population.

 

The Democratic Party has long-since stopped expelling communists from their ranks. Consequently, in some parts of the country—Connecticut; West and South Chicago; Northeast Ohio; St. Louis, Missouri; Tucson, Arizona; Houston, Texas — the CPUSA controls some Democratic precincts.

 

In Connecticut, the CPUSA has relationships with the governor, both senators, all five Congress members, and multiple state, county, and city elected officials. In Texas, one CPUSA member, Sema Hernandez, ran on the Democratic ticket for the U.S. Senate and got 250,000 votes.

 

For decades, the CPUSA was a wholly-owned and subsidized Moscow franchise. Today, the CPUSA owes allegiance to China, but also maintains close ties to the communist parties of Russia, Vietnam, Cuba, Great Britain, Greece, Iran, Iraq, Mexico, Canada, and Brazil.

 

The party still participates in all the still-existing Soviet-era international communist front organizations: World Peace Council, World Federation of Trade Unions, Women’s International Democratic Federation, and the World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY). In 2017, the CPUSA sent a youth delegation to a WFDY festival in Sochi, Russia, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution. Russian President Vladimir Putin personally secured the venue and then addressed the estimated 30,000 attendees.

 

Prominent modern CPUSA members include Party Chairman John Bachtell (once the precinct captain for then-Senate candidate Barack Obama), Judith LeBlanc, a Native-American activist who trained the protesters at the 2015 Dakota Access Pipeline stand-off, and perennial Cleveland Democratic Party candidate Rick Nagin.

 

The CPUSA also has some cross-membership with the DSA.

 

Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS)

 

The CCDS began in 1991 when approximately one-third of the CPUSA’s then 3,000 members split from the party to form a new organization. The ex-communists were quickly joined by dissident Maoists, Trotskyists, anarchists, and “democratic socialists.”

 

In 2000, the Committees of Correspondence (CoC or CofC) became the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS).

 

The organization quickly grew to 2,000 members and was poised to become what the DSA is today — a mass-based, multi-tendency socialist organization. However, in recent years the CCDS has dwindled to about 400 mainly older members.

 

The CCDS is headquartered in the Bay Area, and is strongest in Chicago, New York, Boston, Western Pennsylvania, Louisville, Kentucky, the Carolinas, and Mississippi. The organization has some electoral influence through its close work with the DSA.

 

Prominent members include Mississippi Democratic State Rep. Kathy Sykes and South Carolina labor leader Donna Dewitt. Iconic communist Angela Davis and folk musician Pete Seeger were early members, as was current California Congresswoman Barbara Lee.

 

The CCDS very strongly supports China and Vietnam, as well as Cuba and Venezuela.

 

The CCDS has some cross-membership with both the DSA and CPUSA.

 

Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO)/LeftRoots

 

The Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) grew out of the Maoist student movements of the 1960s, ’70s and early ’80s.

 

Formed in 1985, the FRSO drew together the Proletarian Unity League and the Revolutionary Workers Headquarters, and later the Organization for Revolutionary Unity, Amilcar Cabral-Paul Robeson Collective, and the Socialist Organizing Network. In 2000, the anarchist group Fire by Night joined. The FRSO also picked up members from the long-defunct Communist Workers’ Party, League of Revolutionary Struggle, Line of March, and Communist Party USA (Marxist-Leninist).

 

In 1999, the FRSO split in large part over the main faction’s willingness to work with the Democratic Party. The group that broke away — the Freedom Road Socialist Organization/Fight Back! division will be covered in part 2 of this series.

 

The FRSO doesn’t openly affiliate with China any longer, but many members work or live in China, or do solidarity work with Chinese organizations. Some members also work with pro-North Korean groups, or support Cuba, Venezuela, officially designated terrorist groups, the Communist Party of the Philippines, or the popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

 

The FRSO is extremely secretive about membership, but this author estimates that it has 2,000 to 3,000 active members. The FRSO is concentrated in the Bay Area and New York City, with significant centers in Los Angeles; Portland, Oregon; Seattle; Boston; Philadelphia; Ohio; Missouri; Tennessee; North Carolina; Atlanta, Georgia; Austin, Texas; New Orleans; Southern Florida; and New Mexico.

 

The FRSO has some cross-membership with the DSA and CCDS.

 

Like all Maoist-derived groups, the FRSO delves heavily into racial and gender politics. The organization is comprised predominantly of “people of color,” at least 50 percent female, heavily gay, and comparatively young.

 

Black Lives Matter and the Marxist concept of “white privilege” comes from the FRSO orbit, along with the leftist fetish for using gender “neutral” pronouns.

 

Unlike most older Maoist groups, the FRSO is actively involved in electoral politics. The FRSO controls several voter registration/electoral front groups including the New Virginia Majority, the New Florida MajorityMemphis For All and Stand Up Nashville (both Tennessee), Durham For All (North Carolina), Lancaster Stands Up, and 215 People’s Alliance (both Pennsylvania), which have been pivotal in the elections of many local and national politicians.

 

The FRSO has deliberately targeted Southern states and areas with high black and Latino populations.

 

The FRSO also runs a plethora of well-funded front groups around the country including the Chinese Progressive Association (San Francisco), Chinese Progressive Association (Boston), Highlander Research and Education Center (Tennessee), Miami Workers CenterRight to the City (New York City, with affiliates nationwide), Showing Up for Racial Justice (chapters nationwide), Southerners On New Ground (Atlanta/Birmingham), Asian Pacific Environmental Network, Causa Justa: Just Cause (Bay Area), and Strategic Concepts in Organizing and Policy Education (Los Angeles).

 

LeftRoots was formed in 2014 by Steve Williams, a former member of Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), and N’Tanya Lee, an FRSO affiliate. In essence, LeftRoots is an adjunct to the FRSO with a little bit of DSA input.

 

LeftRoots has about 500 members with branches in Miami, Philadelphia, the Bay Area, Los Angeles, Boston, and New York.

 

Left Inside/Outside Project

 

All of the above groups work together in the Left Inside/Outside Project, which was established in early 2017 to coordinate infiltration and eventual takeover of the Democratic Party.

 

Many of these groups receive significant funding from the Ford Foundation, Open Societies Foundations, Tides Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, and similar groups. Taxpayer funding additionally is often given to the front groups of socialist organizations in the form of grants and tax-exempt status. Unions often prop up front groups financially, and with logistics and training as well.

Democratic Socialists Of America Is A Communist Organization


Yesterday I cross posted Mark Alexander’s essay taking a look at Socialist-Marxist fomenting uncivil socio-political unrest in America.

 

Today I ran into an essay by Trevor Loudon explaining how Marxist-Communist principles and agenda is creeping into acceptance by Americans via a Gramsci-esque stealth infusion by describing itself as Democratic.

Democratic Socialists Of America Is A Communist Organization

Democratic Socialists of America

 

News Analysis

 

America’s largest socialist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), recruited tens of thousands of young people during the presidential campaign through the Bernie Sanders movement. Recently, their membership has been given another boost in the wake of DSA member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s upset victory over New York Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in June.

 

Most of the new DSA comrades genuinely believe they are working for a better America. These indoctrinated souls have no idea that by joining DSA, they have become part of the international communist movement.

 

DSA claims to be working for an America that looks more like Scandinavia — yet it harbors many members loyal to Cuba, China, and even the old Eastern Bloc.

 

In fact, the rapidly growing Marxist organization has many serious communists in leadership positions — including convicted East German spy Kurt Stand, who was a long-time DSA national leader even before he was forced to serve a prison sentence for his role in passing U.S. secrets to East Germany’s Stasi secret police. (His ex-wife, Theresa Squillacote, who worked in the Pentagon, was also sent to prison.)

 

Stand was released in 2012 and has since assumed a leadership role in the Metro Washington DSA.

 

East Germany was known officially as the German Democratic Republic. DSA is just as “Democratic” as was Stand’s beloved Stalinist East Germany.

 

A Bit of History

 

DSA was founded in 1982 from a merger of the 5,000-strong Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee (DSOC) and the 1,200 to 1,500 members of the New American Movement (NAM). The leader of DSOC was Michael Harrington, whose 1962 book “The Other America” is credited with being the inspiration behind President Lyndon B. Johnson’s “War on Poverty” initiative known as the Orwellian-sounding “Great Society.”

 

While DSOC could claim a few genuinely anti-communist old-time socialists in its ranks, NAM was much more communist-oriented. Most younger members of NAM came out of the anti-Vietnam War protests of the 1970s and the Maoist-leaning Students for a Democratic Society. Most of the older members were former Communist Party USA militants. NAM tilted the Democratic Socialists to the left, and as more younger people joined, the party became increasingly pro-communist.

 

DSA draws heavily from the ideas of the late Italian Communist Party theoretician Antonio Gramsci.

 

Realizing that old-style violent revolution was not working in Europe, Gramsci came up with a new plan. Rather than using the standard Marxist-Leninist revolutionary model of inciting the workers to revolt against their bosses, Gramsci reasoned, why not infiltrate communists into all areas of society?

 

The phrase “long march through the institutions,” coined by Gramsci student and German revolutionary Rudi Dutschke, reflects this vision. To achieve revolution, infiltrate the field of education, journalism, the churches, entertainment, labor unions, civic organizations, and mainstream political parties.

 

The Orange County, California, branch of the DSA acknowledged its debt to Gramsci in its February 1984 newsletter:

 

“Antonio Gramsci was a founder of the Italian Communist Party. He developed theories on ‘open-ended Marxism’ and independent Euro-Communism. His writings have remained influential among European parties of the left for several decades. They have also formed a vital part of the ideas that brought about the formation of today’s DSA.”

 

With Gramsci’s doctrine firmly in play, DSA was able to accomplish this infiltration on many fronts. Here is a sample:

 

  • AFL-CIO president and DSA member John Sweeney fundamentally transformed the U.S. labor movement in 1994–95.

 

  • DSA comrades like actor Ed Asner moved Hollywood even further left through their influence in the entertainment unions.

 

  • Eliseo Medina, a DSA comrade and former executive vice president of the Service Employees International Union, almost single-handedly started the political movement to legalize illegal aliens. Medina became President Barack Obama’s unofficial immigration adviser.

 

  • Ron Bloom, who served under Obama directly as “assistant to the president for manufacturing policy,” was a member of the DSA’s predecessor, the DSOC.

 

  • The movement for single-payer (government-run healthcare) is and continues to be a DSA operation. It started with Chicago DSA comrade Dr. Quentin Young, another mentor to Obama.

 

  • Academia has been overrun with Marxist professors, who are grooming the next generation of radicals. DSA is well-established through their youth organization, Young Democratic Socialists of America, with chapters on university campuses and even high schools all over the country.

 

  • Thousands of “community organizers” — labor organizers and nonprofit officials — have been trained through the DSA-aligned Midwest Academy in Chicago.

 

  • DSA member Michael Moore has influenced millions through his documentaries, and DSA member Linda Sarsour is a prominent pro-Sharia activist and speaker, including her role at the Communist Party USA-sponsored Women’s March.

 

Additionally, hundreds of DSAers have taken on prominent roles in the churches, including Norm Faramelli, who served as an adjunct faculty member in Christian ethics at the Episcopal Divinity School; Michael Eric Dyson, who was a theology teacher at Georgetown University; Rosemary Ruether, formerly of the Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary; Cornel West, professor of philosophy and Christian practice at Union Theological Seminary; Eugene TeSelle, former professor of philosophy and Christian practice at Union Theological Seminary (and a mentor to presidential candidate Al Gore); Gary Dorrien, Reinhold Niebuhr professor of social ethics at Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York and professor of religion at Columbia University; and Steve Charleston, former president and dean of the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

 

Infiltrating the Government

 

The Democratic Party has always been a major target for DSA. Most DSA comrades in the early days were also Democrats, and members held office all through the party.

 

In the early 1990s, New York Mayor David Dinkins and St. Paul, Minnesota, Mayor Jim Scheibel were DSA comrades. DSA had many state legislators, county commissioners, and local officials in its ranks — almost all under Democratic Party cover.

 

Several Congress members were DSAers, including Rep. Major Owens (New York) and the pro-Cuba Rep. Ron Dellums of California, who shockingly served on the House Armed Services Committee.

 

In 1991, Bernie Sanders and the DSA got together to set up the House Progressive Caucus, now known as the Congressional Progressive Caucus. At nearly 80 members strong, it is the largest and most influential caucus in the House.

 

The Congressional Progressive Caucus will likely gain several new members this coming election, including card-carrying DSA members Ocasio-Cortez of Queens, New York, and Rashida Tlaib of Detroit, Michigan. Both have won their Democratic primaries and look certain to be elected in November. But Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib are far from the only DSA members and allies who have won their primaries so far this election cycle alone.

 

What Is the Plan?

 

While touted in the media as a new movement, DSA is nothing but warmed-over communism. Reading their inner party documents soon provides a clearer view of the organization’s intentions.

 

For example, Detroit DSA leader Dr. David Green visited Cuba to review the communist dictatorship’s health system. He wrote in Greater Detroit DSA’s May 2009 newsletter: “One of the most impressive features of Cuban society is its healthcare system. The Cuban system demonstrates what can be accomplished when health care is viewed as a human right rather than a commodity.”

 

Green also wrote in DSA’s publication Democratic Left, in Spring 2007, “Our goal as socialists is to abolish private ownership of the means of production.”

 

When DSA members boast that they want to end capitalism, they mean it. All private business is the Marxist’s enemy.

 

Pressuring lawmakers to implement policies favorable to the revolution is the ongoing goal of many Marxist organizations, and DSA is dedicated to several policies that they believe would further that goal. During their annual convention, an estimated 700 to 800 delegates voted to abolish the police altogether and additionally to empty the prisons.

 

The DSA has been clear about their desire to abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency of the Department of Homeland Security. DSA wants to economically isolate “apartheid” Israel, strongly supporting the so-called BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement. They are very active in pushing for so-called anti-gentrification policies and for rent control. One of DSA’s most coveted policy positions is the euphemistically named “Medicare for All,” or Single Payer.

 

DSA is using massive resources to push these policies on a local and national level, from having their thousands of members engage in knocking on doors, to pressure elected officials to make Single Payer a part of their platform.

 

DSA, ‘Totalitarianism,’ and ‘Direct Action’

 

Many DSA members tout “democracy” while supporting totalitarianism. Consider that many of their members are associated with — or are outright members of — the anarchist “anti-fascist” movement known as Antifa. One will rarely if ever, find a DSA member denouncing the violence of Antifa. DSA members were active “counter-protesters” along with other communist groups and Antifa during the infamous “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville in August 2017, for example.

 

One prime example of the DSA–Antifa alliance is evident in the violence-promoting organization, the Knights for Socialism, a front for Young Democratic Socialists of Orlando at the University of Central Florida. The members of the Knights for Socialism are largely DSA members, and leader Dylan Tyer has prominent positions with the local DSA and YDSA. It should be noted that the former regional field director of the Florida Democratic Party, Adam Whitmer, was elected chair of the Democratic Socialists of Orlando last year.

 

The Knights for Socialism gained notoriety for its “Bash the Fash” event held last year, billed as a “self-defense seminar” held “in response to the record number of hate crimes against Latinos, Immigrants, Muslims, Women, the LGBTQIA+ community, Jews, African Americans and other minorities since the rise of Donald Trump and other Alt-Right Neo-Nazis.” The Knights for Socialism logo is the Antifa flag.

 

In addition to their association with Antifa, DSA members can be credited for starting the politically embarrassing trend of ambushing immigration officials. The event that started the short-lived but media-hyped movement was an impromptu ambush organized by the Metro DC chapter of the DSA on Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on June 19 while she dined with a colleague.

 

In that case, the chair of the Metro DC chapter, Margaret McLaughlin, posted the restaurant’s address on Twitter, prompting fellow comrades to come shout “Shame!” at Nielsen during dinner. Other DSA members included Allison Hrabar, Jesse Rabinowitz, and Austin Kendall. Instead of being condemned, the event received glowing coverage in The New York Times and CNN, among others.

 

The day after the ambush, and in response to media coverage referring to the participants as “activists,” the Metro DC DSA tweeted indignantly: “We’re not ‘liberals,’ not vague ‘activists.’ We’re socialist organizers.”

 

That initial action spurred a wave of ambush-like actions on the homes of immigration officials. But the glowing coverage of those actions ended abruptly after California Rep. Maxine Waters took the rhetoric too far a couple of days later when she instructed Americans to “absolutely harass” White House officials.

 

In the aftermath, DSA member Allison Hrabar received a bit of attention, considering her work in the anti-trust division of the U.S. Justice Department. It appears that Hrabar, a member of the Metro DC chapter’s steering committee, is still employed by the federal government while continuing to be very much involved in her socialist activism.

 

While DSA claims to fight authoritarianism at home, it is quite happy to support totalitarianism abroad. In February, long-time DSA comrade Daniel Adkins published an article in Democratic Left daring to argue that the United States was in economic competition with “mercantilist” China. This prompted a furious response by the Seattle DSA, Boston DSA, and the Communist Caucus of East Bay DSA claiming that his article “was both irresponsible and morally inexcusable” and “pits the U.S. working class against the Chinese working class.”

 

The critics insisted that the article be removed and further demanded that a “statement [be] published on DSA’s blog in due time affirming a commitment to internationalism, acknowledging that the Adkins piece should not have been published, and refusing to publish pieces promoting national chauvinist or anti-Chinese perspectives in the future.”

 

Global Alliances

 

During their annual convention in August 2017, DSA dropped its longstanding affiliation to the Socialist International (SI), the more-than-a-century-old alliance of socialist and social democratic parties — because they are too moderate!

 

According to the revolutionary publication Left Voice:

 

“The resolution that passed stated, ‘Our affiliation with the Socialist International hinders our ability to develop stronger relationships with parties and social movements that share our values and which, in many cases, are bitterly opposed to their country’s SI affiliate(s),’ and, ‘In many countries, they have helped to lead the attack on the welfare state and on the rights of workers and unions.’”

 

After ditching the SI, the Democratic Socialists began looking around for new foreign friends.

 

According to an article published by Democratic Left on Nov. 25, 2017:

 

“In early November, DSA Deputy Director David Duhalde spoke on two European United Left/Nordic Green Left panels at the European Parliament—building ‘real global party ties for a post-Socialist International DSA.’

 

“Then he appeared on a Sinn Fein program and ‘shared a special moment’ with a former political prisoner about the Irish and Chilean struggles against authoritarianism.”

 

European United Left/Nordic Green Left is a caucus of communist, Marxist, and Green parties in the European Parliament, formed in 1995.

 

“They have taken special note of DSA as part of the larger surge of interest in socialism in the U.S. and the popularity of Bernie Sanders,” the article said.

 

Sinn Fein is the socialist legal wing of the former Marxist-Leninist terrorist Irish Republican Army.

 

When communists run for public office in America as openly communist, they are lucky to break 100 votes. Yet when they run covertly as Democrats, they can win seats on school boards, county commissions, and even in Congress. DSA is now 48,000 members strong. It has locals in every state and is busily taking over Democratic branches from Texas to Maine, from Nebraska to Hawaii.

 

Americans should demand that the Democratic Party be held accountable for allowing their party to be infiltrated by radical DSA Marxists.
