While many people know that Chicago, Illinois is the birthplace of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), few realize that the activity between the CPUSA, union leaders and politicians in New Haven, Connecticut makes Chicago’s Commies look tame.
Which makes the WTHN News report (below), that President Obama’s recent plan to make two years of Community College free to students was modeled after a program run in New Haven, Connecticut, much more interesting:
“I am thrilled to get this opportunity, through our amazing partnership with Yale University and on behalf of New Haven Promise, to participate in this White House Summit and to learn and share new initiatives that came from the first Day of Action back in January,” said Melton. “When President Salovey reported that Promise received a shout out at the first Summit, it created excitement in our Promise community. Now we close out the year with a first-hand visit.”
The Ex-Officio Director of the New Haven Promise Board of Directors is none other than the Mayor of New Haven, Toni N. Harp. Mayor Harp gained attention for naming a day in honor of a well known CPUSA and Black Panther member last May, and in 2012, then State Senator Toni Harp happily accepted an award from the CPUSA News, People’s World. But honoring, and being honored by Communists isn’t limited to the Mayor’s office in New Haven.
Last year the New Haven Board of Aldermen’s Black Caucus honored the CPUSA’s People’s Center. Over the years another Democrat State Senator and numerous union leaders (1, 2) and officials have all been given awards by the CPUSA in New Haven. Many of the events were even held in New Haven public school auditoriums.
Is it any surprise that President Obama’s plan for “Free College Education” was influenced by a program run in city known for its support of Communists?
Considering the American people are no longer shocked by Marxist Progressivism, even though it is a direct threat to their liberty, the only answer to the above question is sadly, No. None of us are surprised.
