Communist Party Leader on Obama Years: “There Could Not Be a Better Time to Be Communist in USA Than This”

Communist Party USA leader Scott Marshall told an international conference in 2009, Barack Obama’s first year in office, “There could not have been a better time to be a communist in USA than this.”
He meant it. We got it.

The Times of India
reported, via Urban Infidel:

The three-day international conference of communist and workers’ parties began on Friday amidst a call to intensify popular struggles and expand solidarities in the wake of the current world capitalist crisis.

So confident are communist leaders of the solution they can offer to current crisis in capitalism that even the leader of Communist Party of USA, Scott Marshall, said, “There could not have been a better time to be a communist in USA than this.”

    If you spend ten seconds reading the article, it’s clear the guy is referring to the financial crisis as an opportunity for communists to offer reforms. There’s no inherent connection to Obama except for the one Jim Hoft just made.

    Weren’t you all just complaining about Obama CUTTING money from the blatantly socialist Medicare earlier today??

    True. Because Obama has communist ideas. He is using the playbook.

    re: [no inherent connection to Obama]

    just a sample:

    Obama (#13)

    [Illinois: The first NP member heads to Congress, as Danny Davis wins an overwhelming 85% victory yesterday (he got a higher percentage of the vote in that district than the President). NP member and State Senate candidate Barack Obama won uncontested. Interestingly, it appears that the local Democratic machine is trying to distance itself from our folks. At a “Democratic Unity” march on Chicago’s West Side, a flyer invited community members to join with a host of local democratic candidates. The only two west-side Democrats not listed: NP members Danny Davis (U.S. House candidate) and Michael Chandler (Alderman and Ward Committeeman).]


    [“There is a statement made on nationalization [in Sessional Paper No.
    10]. True there are cases in which nationalization is bad, but there are,
    likewise, quite a few benefits to be derived from it. On this subject I
    would like to refer the authors to Prof. Bronferbrenner’s [sic] work on
    the “Appeals for confiscation in Economic Development”* [sic — the
    referenced article is titled “The Appeal of Confiscation in Economic
    Development”]. Nationalization should not be looked at only in terms
    of profitability alone, but also, or even more, on the benefit to society
    that such services render and on its importance in terms of public
    interest ..”]

    Obama’s Mama (#72)

    [When Ann Dunham arrived in Hawaii, she was a full fledged radical
    leftist and practioner of “Critical Theory” (Is the examination and
    critique of society and culture.. Which had two different meaning”
    .. a stricter Marxist as a revisionism or visionary.]

    Obama’s Uncle Jerry (#31)

    [Islam and BLT are theologies that have a political goal of making
    all politics submit to their demands. Submission is the political goal.]

    Obama’s Aunt Frances (#17)

    She’s considered by many as the grandmother of using the American welfare state to implement revolution. Make people dependent on the government, overload the government rolls, and once government services become unsustainable, the people will rise up, overthrow the oppressive capitalist system, andfinally create income equality. Collapse the system and create a new one. [.]

    In a chilling and almost unbelievable editorial again in The Nation
    (”Mobilizing the Jobless,” January 10/17, 2011 edition), she calls
    on the jobless to rise up in a violent show of solidarity and force.
    As before, those calls are dripping with language of class struggle.
    Language she and her late husband Richard Cloward made popular
    in the 60s.

    “So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations,
    sit-ins and unruly mobs?” she writes.[.]

    and then there’s the Ayer’s, Khalidi’s, Farrakhan’s, al-
    Mansour, Black Panthers, Rezko, Auchi, etc, etc, etc..

    Meeting Young Obama

    [Boss and Obama, however, had a starkly different view. They believed that the economic stresses of the Carter years meant revolution was still imminent. The election of Reagan was simply a minor set-back in terms of the coming revolution. As I recall, Obama repeatedly used the phrase “When the revolution comes….” In my mind, I remember thinking that Obama was blindly sticking to the simple Marxist theory that had characterized my own views while I was an undergraduate at Occidental College. “There’s going to be a revolution,” Obama said, “we need to be organized and grow the movement.” In Obama’s view, our role must be to educate others so that we might usher in more quickly this inevitable revolution.

    I know this may be implausible to some readers, but I distinctly remember Obama surprising me by bringing up Frantz Fanon and colonialism. He impressed me with his knowledge of these two topics, topics which were not among my strong points — or of overwhelming concern to me. Boss and Obama seemed to think their ideological purity was a persuasive argument in predicting that a coming revolution would end capitalism. While I felt I was doing them a favor by providing them with the latest research, I saw I was in danger of being cast as a reactionary who did not grasp the nuances of international Marxist theory.]

    Even Republicans Rejected Info About Obama’s Past

    [What would you do if you knew that the top Democrat
    running for president was lying about his past?

    That is the question I was faced with in 2008. I had met the young Barack Obama while he was a sophomore at Occidental College, and I knew that his commitment to socialism was deep, genuine, and longstanding. See my earlier article on American Thinker.

    I had been a leader of the Marxist students at Occidental College myself, starting in 1976 when I founded the precursor of the Democrat Socialist Alliance on campus. The young Obama I knew was a Marxist socialist who would have been quite comfortable with Communist party members like his Hawaii mentor Frank Marshall Davis, retired domestic terrorists like Bill Ayers, or active socialist politicians like Illinois State Senator Alice Palmer.]


  • Finncrisp

    Obama’s policy is MUD – Marxist Utopian Delusion; he cares not for America and he hopes that there are comrades who will keep him in office, probably for life…

    I sure don’t want this dope to keep doing executive order end arounds for life until there is no America left.

    which was invested in Cordex Petroleum Inc., a company he owned with
    his son, Fred.]

    [In 1953 Strong was hired out of the UN Security section and sent

    bigger problem is, there’s an ongoing NAZIS, COMMUNISTS, ARAB
    (#62) connection that goes back to the
    good old Hitler & Mufti days.. *sigh*

    not to mention Breaking Free From The
    Constitution & the War Mentality

    [In 1933 the German establishment thought it could use Hitler to
    restore a modicum of order to the confused and confusing Weimar
    Republic. In fact, Hitler did strengthen the German establishment,
    but not exactly in the way the bankers and businessmen had
    wanted; and now, fifty years later, it is clear who was using whom.
    Nevertheless, the Western World did not complain in 1933 because
    Hitler, though a fascist and a totalitarian, was seen, like countless
    American puppet dictators today, as someone who leaves the
    established order in place.]

    January 18, 2001 (#37)

    [Mr. Obama’s comments take a turn from discussing the historical
    record. Unprovoked he laments that the Supreme Court “could not
    break free from the essential constraints placed by the Founding
    Fathers in the Constitution.” He further describes the Constitution
    as “a charter of negative liberties.” This is at odds with the preamble
    to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

    ipso facto: anyone who thinks Obama is alone in these endeavors might
    as well drink the prog-dem-lib koolaid and enjoy what little freedom their
    great great children may only be able to dream about if he is allowed to
    continue playing the “NOTHING” in the elite NeverEnding powers that be
    Story.. gah!!

    again, just a bit more of much more re: bg et al

    Nazism is Socialism* (#18)

    Friedrich August von Hayek
    Published in the spring of 1933

    [It would, indeed, hardly have been possible for the Nationalists to
    advance fundamental objections to the economic policy of the other
    socialist parties when their own published programme differed from
    these only in that its socialism was much cruder and less rational.
    The famous 25 points drawn up by Herr Feder, one of Hitler’s early
    allies, repeatedly endorsed by Hitler and recognized by the by-laws
    of the National-Socialist party as the immutable basis of all its actions,
    which together with an extensive commentary is circulating throughout
    Germany in many hundreds of thousands of copies, is full of ideas
    resembling those of the early socialists.

    But the dominant feature is a fierce hatred of anything capitalistic-
    individualistic profit seeking, large scale enterprise, banks, joint-stock
    companies, department stores, “international finance and loan capital,
    ” the system of “interest slavery” in general; the abolition of these is
    described as the “basis of the programme, around which everything
    else turns.” It was to this programme that the masses of the German
    people, who were already completely under the influence of collectivist
    (#19), responded so enthusiastically.]

    ‘my individual salvation is not gonna come about
    without a collective salvation for the country’

    The Turban and the Swastika (#19/20)

    Greens (#185) & Guerrillas (#28)..

    [Social Justice and Equal Opportunity

    All persons should have the rights and opportunity to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment. We must consciously confront in ourselves, our organizations, and society at large, barriers such as racism and class oppression, sexism and heterosexism, ageism and disability, which act to deny fair treatment and equal justice under the law.]

    [Later — during his interview with United Church News — Obama continued his thoughts about religion and politics; specifically, the role of religious principles in reaching a balance between national security and social justice concerns.

    “I believe that democracy demands that the religiously motivated translate their concerns into universal values,” Obama said. “Social justice and national security are both universal values, values that may originate for some in their religious beliefs, but are shared by us all.”]

    [We are a guerilla organization. We are communist women and
    men, underground in the United States for more than four years.

    And not some nicey-nice peace-and-love kind of communist. Through
    his group the Weather Underground, Ayers was planning to “seize
    power” in a violent communist takeover of the United States:

    We need a revolutionary communist party in order to lead the
    struggle, give coherence and direction to the fight, size power
    and build a new society.

    OT.. yeah, and Obama is everything to everyone.. in his minions minds
    anyways.. not that he wouldn’t stand with the Muslims against them..

    670 million Muslims expect Madhi in their lifetime

    [Two-thirds of a billion Muslims expect the Mahdi – the last Islamic
    imam they believe will come and rule the world – to arrive in their
    lifetimes, according to a new Pew Research poll.]

    The trouble with “Jummah at the DNC” (#18)

    [It is troubling that the Democratic National Convention has decided
    to promote and lend its name and national political platform to the
    organizers of the “Jummah at the DNC”. The leaders of this event –
    Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj as advertised are no moderates.
    They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and
    have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.]

    At Islamic radicalization hearings, moderate Muslims warn
    Congress while Dems question their very participation

    [That left Chairman Peter King, R-N.Y., frustrated. He cited a
    statement by Attorney General Eric Holder that there was a crisis
    of radicalization to violence within the Muslim-American community.
    Past testimony showed “[t]he threat posed by radicalized Muslim-
    Americans is a clear and present danger to homeland security,” he
    said in his prepared remarks. Widely accessible videos and books
    in prison libraries fuel the radicalization, he noted. And classified
    information shows a growing problem of Islamist extremism within
    U.S. military ranks has reached a “truly eye-popping amount of
    ongoing cases.”

    Yet, the discussion remained blocked by partisanship.

    That’s by design, witnesses said.]

    Ex Brotherhood Official Showcases Islamist Doublespeak (#17)

    [Quilliam warned western governments to treat the Brotherhood “with
    the greatest suspicion,” adding that there are moderates in the group,
    but “anyone who thinks that the Muslim Brotherhood as a whole has
    ‘reformed’ is clearly deluded.”]

    “they do know, and they have other ideas” (#16)

    [Islamist-allied operatives appointed by Obama are undermining U.S.
    security policy – explains counter-Intelligence expert, Prof. Clare Lopez.
    Aimed at co-opting Americas foreign policy in the Middle East, a network
    including well-known American diplomats, congressional representatives,
    figures from academia and the think tank world – with ties to the clerical
    regime in Tehran – is directing the Obama Administration’s policy towards
    the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Middle East.]

    [Abdul-Malik also makes no bones about discussing how the election of
    President Obama is a step forward in the project of Islamization and the
    long term goal of Islamist domination which falls right in lock-step with
    that of the Muslim Brotherhood as revealed in their manifesto.]

    [Saleha Mahmood Abedin, the mother of Hillary Clinton’s chief
    of staff, reportedly served in the women’s division of the Muslim
    Brotherhood alongside the wife of Egypt’s new president, the
    Brotherhood’s Mohammed Mursi.]

    All you need to know about results of communist ideology is take a look at the soviet union. Crumbled under its own weight of cummunist economic policies and her long quest to dominate and spread that lousy political idea and compete with the united states and the free world.but just how capitalitic is the united strategy? Overeaching with her own quest to be present In all corners of the globe,fighting wars in all fronts,giving tax breaks to billoniares,borrowing from communist china to sustain and mentain economic stability… much to be said about an ideal in any political systems it all becomes a fallacy in the final analysis. .the jury is still out. As to finding viable economic and political solutions in adressing economic challenges in any. Given state in the new world order as we move forward

    This is for BG who claims nazism is socialism, a complete fallacy in order to drive people away from the natural cure to America’s ills, our Foreign policy ills, our social policy ills, and our economic policy ills.

    “Great are the tasks of the national Government in the sphere of economic life.

    Here all action must be governed by one law: the people does not live for business, and business does not exist for capital; but capital serves business, and business serves the people. In principle, the Government will not protect the economic interests of the German people by the circuitous method of an economic bureaucracy to be organized by the State, but by the utmost furtherance of private initiative and by the recognition of the rights of property….

    The Government will systematically avoid currency experiments.”

    “Our adopted term ‘Socialist’ has nothing to do with Marxian Socialism. Marxism is anti-property; true Socialism is not.” –Adolf Hitler, Sunday Express, 28 September 1930
