Trevor Loudon says the Communist Party USA is amping up its rhetoric as it prepares to confront the "TEA Party" and the GOP in the coming months.
 
Ohio Communist Party leader Rick Nagin set the tone in Peoples World (above).

Communist Party rhetoric is not usually this extreme.  The fact that they are throwing caution to the wind, tells us they understand the huge stakes in next year’s election cycle.
 
If the Communist/Dems win in 2012, America’s march towards socialism will be almost impossible to stop.
 
If the "TEA Party" wins (NOT the GOP),  Americans will have a fighting chance to save their country.
 
The Communist Party USA understands this.
 
Do you?

CPUSA says the time for diplomacy is over

Rick Nagin, writing in People's World, says the best thing that can be said about the distasteful debt ceiling deal is that it is behind us and hopefully the real challenges and issues facing the American people can now be frankly addressed.
 
The AFL-CIO leadership, which met with Obama the day after the agreement was reached, correctly said the deal ignores and undermines the nation's ability to confront the real problem --  America's job crisis.  They blasted it as "a product of extortion by House Republicans," one that is "even more right-wing than the average Republican."
 
The labor leadership recognized that, given the balance of forces in Congress, Obama had no choice but to negotiate.  Not to do so would have been politically disastrous, but doing so meant that Republican demands to slash essential programs and weaken Social Security and Medicare were on the table.
 
While threatening to eliminate nearly 2 million jobs in 2012 (according to the Economic Policy Institute), the deal spared the basic entitlements for the time being.  But the battle over these, as well as Democratic demands to increase revenues through taxes on the wealthy and the corporations, will be shifted to November when the fight will resume in the deficit super-committee.
 
This gives a few months for Obama and his allies (the CPUSA) to rally people and expose the Republican aims, which polls show are highly unpopular.  During the negotiations, Obama had no choice but to be diplomatic.  The Republicans took the hits for throwing tantrums and walking out while Obama gained in stature and respect.
 
But now that the unsavory deal is done, the time for diplomacy is over and the time has come to take off the gloves and tell the truth.  The Republicans are no ordinary opposition party with whom the Democrats can have amicable and respectful differences.  They are racist, anti-labor, anti-democratic extremists, beholden to fascist-minded billionaires.  They are hell-bent on wrecking the economic security of working people and turning the government into an open tool for corporate plunder.
 
Last November, working people suffered a major setback.  The right wing was able to play on mass anger and frustration over the slow recovery and blame the Democrats for the crisis caused and sustained by Republican policies.  In Ohio, Wisconsin and other states the Democratic base, pounded by right-wing media, did not turn out in sufficient numbers to overcome the frenzied, corporate-funded Republican campaign of bigotry and Big Lies.
 
The result was a Republican takeover in these states as well as in the U.S. House of Representatives, and an immediate, unprecedented, far-flung attack on civil, democratic and trade union rights.
 
In Ohio, in just six months Gov. John Kasich outlawed collective bargaining for public employees, slashed funds for education, health care and local government services, enacted a voter suppression law, put key state assets up for sale, restricted reproductive freedom, expanded gun rights and opened state parks to reckless plunder by gas companies.
 
If the Republicans take over the White House in 2012, it will be Kasich on steroids for the entire country.  As Vice President Joe Biden warned the AFL-CIO in March, every effort must be made to "keep the barbarians from the gate."
 
It is urgent for Obama, the Democrats, the labor movement and all progressive allies to rally the troops, expose the danger and prepare for war.

The only difference between a communist and a socialist is the strategy.  Communists always believed in violent revolution as the means to their ends.

Aaron Klein says that it may be early in the campaign season, but the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) already has seen fit to endorse Barack Obama for the 2012 election.
 
While noting he is disappointed with "some aspects" of the Obama administration's domestic and foreign policy, Sam Webb, chairman of the Communist Party USA, threw his support behind Obama's re-election bid.
 
In an article last week at People's Weekly World, the official newspaper of the Communist Party USA, Webb discussed the need for a third party consisting of the so-called working class and labor as well as "racially and nationally oppressed people, women, youth, immigrants, seniors, gay and straight."
 
Webb, however, recognized that such a party is not likely to emerge by next year.
 
"Millions who have to be at the core of this party still operate under the umbrella of the Democratic Party, albeit increasingly in an independent fashion," he noted.
 
Webb said that for Communists there are major differences between Democrats and Republicans. He urged his supporters to continue to back the Democrats.
 
Wrote Webb: "Neither party is anti-capitalist, but they aren't identical either. Differences exist at the levels of policy and social composition.  And despite the many frustrations of the past two years, the election of Barack Obama was historic and gave space to struggle for a people's agenda."
