Obama's Neo-Moaist Hardliner: It's Not Fair!.. It's The Freakin' Red Scare All Over Again!
Between 1979 and 1981, Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) (CPML) chairman and Obama supporter Mike Klonsky was repeatedly feted with state-dinner-level visits to Beijing.
But, today the Marxist-Leninist was thrown under the bus by the Obama campaign.
The Obama campaign airbrushed his blog from their website.
Now, Maoist Obama supporter Mike Klonsky is whining about tumble under the bus.
–Poor baby’s been a victim of McCarthyism!
This is from his blog today:
As Obama starts to pull away in the polls, a desperate new McCarthyism is rearing its ugly head once again. This time around, it’s the network of Swiftboat bloggers that are leading the attack on Barack, using their reliable arsenal (especially in tough economic times) of anti-communism (now fear of terrorism) and racism to spread fear and disunity. The new witch-hunters are combing the Obama campaign especially for ’60s radicals (yes, there are some of us left, especially in the field of education).
How to respond? Ignore them? Take them head on? Tough choices for Obama campaigners and for those of us who are targeted orwho are collateral damage.
Brings back memories of similar dark times in the ’50s. This new film about blacklisted screenwriter and ’60’s friend, the late Dalton Trumbo, may shed some light.
This from reviewer Andrew O’hehir in Salon.Com:
The real target of the Red Scare was not the handful of prominent lefties like Trumbo who had their livelihoods destroyed and their reputations ruined but rather the rest of society, which proved by and large to be craven, suggestible, and downright eager to hew to a new standard of patriotic conformity.
It’s the freakin Red Scare!
It makes you get all teary-eyed, doesn’t it?… The poor Maoist.
