Video: Communist Party head admits being part of the ‘progressive’ wing of the Democratic Party

Communist_Party_USA_(Alternate_Logo)While appearing on Thursday’s edition of the “Alan Colmes Show” on Fox Radio, John Bachtell, National Chair of the Communist Party USA, admitted that his party, formed by the USSR in 1919 to facilitate the overthrow of the United States, is part of the hardcore progressive left of the Democratic Party.

“Well, you’ve talked about working in the two party system. So you support Democrats for the most part?” Colmes asked.  “Are you supporting Bernie Sanders, let’s say, in this election?”

“Ah well, Yea we’re apart of what I kind of call the Progressive, pro-labor wing of the Democratic Party,” he said.  “I mean it’s no secret and we’re apart of a very broad movement of organizations: labor movements, civil rights movements, other movements, women’s movement, what not, that find their home in the Democratic Party.”

Of course, this comes as no surprise to me.

As I’ve noted since sometime in 2010, Communists, unions and Democrats have been quite close.  Now, it seems Communists are working with Democrats to enact their agenda.

It’s no wonder DNC boss Debbie Wasserman Schultz couldn’t tell the difference between socialists and Democrats.  There really isn’t any.

And now, we learn that the CPUSA is working to elect a Democrat into the White House.  This alone ought to be reason enough to reject any candidate with a (D) behind his or her name.
