“If there is any wonder why Detroit often resembles an Eastern Bloc municipality, consider that for 19 years the mayor who ran the city economically and socially was a closet Marxist.”

We should have known. Closet Communists destroyed Detroit and brought the once great American city to its knees.
Forbes reported:

Sometimes it’s better to tell a story backwards, from end to beginning. This story ends on December 10, 2012, when President Obama traveled to Michigan—a state with unemployment over 9 percent. He made a stop in Detroit, Michigan’s largest city, which is bankrupt. There, Obama made the ironic boast: “You only have to look to Michigan where workers were instrumental in reviving the auto industry to see how unions have helped build not just a stronger middle class but a stronger America.”

Of course, the auto industry, like much of the rest of Detroit, is in ruins. This is the state of the city and its main industry … at the end of the story.

Flashback some 20-plus years, to 1988, when Howard Johnson—who had been one of the leading communists in Harlem during the Great Depression—told interviewer Kay Takora about his return home from World War II: “I came back into activity in the Communist Party…. I at first became county educational director. New York county was the biggest county organization. From ’46 to ’49. And during that same period, I was assigned to help build a national Negro veterans organization which was called the United Negro and Allied Veterans of America [UNAVA]. And that had the backing of the party and I was assigned by the party to work in that along with my duties as educational director of the county organization.”

Howard Johnson continued, eventually bringing the conversation to Detroit, and to Detroit’s mayor, Coleman Young: “When UNAVA was formed, I was elected national vice-commander in charge of education, which fit my training, and the other national vice-commander was Coleman Young, who was national vice-commander in charge of labor.

Because at that time he was a steward in the auto workers union and [a] very prominent trade unionist in Detroit. Coleman and I were very good friends…. I never anticipated he would be a bourgeois mayor of Detroit. But Coleman’s a great guy, nevertheless. But I think that it was his party training that (helped) him to move forward as he did.” (Emphasis added.)

Coleman Young, the mayor of Detroit from 1974 to 1993…

  1. Figures–

  2. I don’t care anymore. We’re finding out more and more. It becomes increasingly obvious.

    I just don’t think anyone is going to do anything about it.

    Let…it….burn.

  3. Closet Communists – Democrats and all who would vote Obama in for a second term

  4. Communist Goals for USA from 1963 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJEnrzJGu6E

  5. That must have been one beautiful home. Left to rot and beseiged by vandals.
    Just like America, rotting from the inside and vandalized until it is worthless.

  6. Wake-up,America:Democrats aren’t Democrats anymore,They;re Communists………..http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/22806

  7. Liberals will purposefully ignore this destruction and vote for the same mind set that destroyed this city over and over again.

    There is no reason a once promising city has to be driven into the ground, it’s so bad that I have many friends from Detroit that settled in L.A. so even this city run by idiots is better than what they left.

  8. So, a mayor that left office 20 years ago is responsible for the current condition of Detroit, but a president who left office four years ago has no responsibility for the condition of the country. Nice double standard.

  9. Walmart has now joined the other side. Will not order or stock any more ammo until after the bill is passed on the second amendment. Well this tells you what every God fearing, second amendment, American must do if they hold a Walmart card, SAMs card in their possession. It’s time to dump them. They should not play with their customers and think they will win. This administration is pulling them in. They are being set up by them. They could not get them to bow down on other matters and turnover their will but, now they have done so here. Shows you just how weak Walmart really is. This is a ploy to bring Walmart down, reduce sales, and get shoppers to boycott them, rip up their charges and shop else where. Walmart has been had once again.. These people are sooooo ignorant..

    Yet you are constantly saying the current president is blameless for anything bad while he’s in office. Nice NO standard there, you schnook.

  11. These people are sooooo ignorant..

    Right! If they were truly smart they would be here ranting about the perceived outrages of the day, instead of becoming the world’s largest retailer.

  12. Hey Shadow! So it is o.k. to put someone else in charge who is doing the same only 10 times worst and faster? I lived near Detroit all my life and saw the results of Mr. Young! The city was a mess and he took anything good that was left and made it worse! Not to mention the fact that he and his buddies stole millions of dollars to line their pockets!! He has to go down in history as the most corrupt politician in U.S, history! So dont stick up for these fools!!

  13. Yet you are constantly saying the current president is blameless for anything bad while he’s in office. Nice NO standard there, you schnook.

    And where have I ever said the Obama is blameless, much less constantly? That’s right. I didn’t. That’s just your knee-jerk reaction on display.

    Young’s successors as Mayor haven’t been much of an improvement, if any. Typical Lib thinking of doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

  15. He has to go down in history as the most corrupt politician in U.S, history! So dont stick up for these fools!!

    That very well could be. And I wasn’t sticking up for him. I just can’t see how the mayor from 20 years ago could be held solely responsible for the current condition of a city.

  16. Detroit has/had many fine neighborhoods like Brush Park built on early 20th century industry. Many homes still exist but the extent of neglect & blight has been significant.

    Can there be any doubt that Coleman Young was determined to root out Detroit’s greatness and replace it with this ugliness of stagnation? Shrinking the pie economics that Obama also embraces. Thus, what you get is the pursuit of ‘loot’ rather than earning or prosperity.

    Many like to blame republicans but there hasn’t been a republican elected in Detroit since the Pleistocene. Sad indeed.

    So you say. You’d deny any contrary proof offered anyway. Up is Down, In is Out.

  18. It always involves North African Egyptian Hamites (Babylon). Some of you people never learn.
