When I awoke this morning, the air just seemed more... RED. I couldn't figure it out, but then I realized that it was May Day. Something like Christmas to the socialist, communist, and Obamazombie, May Day is a celebration of the international proletariat.
So in celebration, it seems fitting to revisit yet one of a thousand indications of the thoroughly socialist nature of Barack Hussein Muhammad bin Obama that have been completely ignored by the media. A January 31, 2009 speech by Sam Webb, somebody you have never heard of.
But maybe you should have heard of him. Because it seems to me that his endorsement of Barack Obama's agenda tells us at least as much about The One as does Barack's association with Reverend Wright.
Because Sam Webb is the leader of the Communist Party, USA (CPUSA). The speech comes from a People's Weekly World event in Cleveland. The People's Weekly World is the publication of the CPUSA.
While the speech is filled with generic commie palaver and the vagaries of someone who is compelled to say something meaningful but doesn't know what they are talking about (perhaps Mr. Webb needs to employ a teleprompter?), it is obvious that Webb is repressing the high-pitched squeel of a six-year old girl who has just gotten a pony for Christmas when he says things like, "an era of progressive change is within reach, no longer an idle dream."
Hope and change, get it?
Webb rejoices that "larger Democratic majorities control Congress!" And yet conservatives are continually criticized for the close association that they find between the ideology of Dems and Commies when they design bumper stickers like this:
But there is obviously some sort of congruence between the values and agendas of Democrats and Communists when the Communists rejoice at Democratic control... nyet?
Webb, after a lot of blathering on about Reaganite neoliberalism, how capitalism (and capital itself - odd, given The One's pronouncement that "Now is not the time for profits!") fails to produce wealth, Webb gets into the "meat" [sic] of his speech when he makes the case for Obama's "New New Deal."
Of course tax cuts or making a hospitable environment for business is not the way to build the economy. Typical Communist doublethink - we do not build the economy by increasing economic activity; it is almost like Obama's spendiing orgy being characterized as "financial responsibility."
Rather, it is "thru massive injections of money from the federal government into the economy, into the hands of people who will spend it.... In this regard, the President's stimulus bill passed this week in the House and should be welcomed and supported."
Two observations, in the form of questions: 1) Whence cometh this money "from the federal government?" How munch money does the federal government earn in a year? 2) Isn't this precisely the hair of the dog that bit us? Wasn't it "massive injections of money [at the behest of] the federal government into the hands of people who will spend it" on a mortgage that they cannot afford that brought us to the utopian economy that we currently enjoy?
In order to ensure economic recovery, Webb stated that the Obama administration "will almost inevitably have to consider - and they already are [considering] - the following measures:
* Public ownership of the financial system....
* Counter-crisis spending of a bigger size and scope....
* ... public takeover of the energy complex....
* Turning education, childcare, and healthcare into "no profit" zones.
* Rerouting investment capital... [into a] green economy and public infrastructure."
How, odd, that Sam Webb's goals, even his words, are so eerily echoed in the words of Obama and his administration. Can you hear the echoes? "Never waste a good crisis." "No profit zones." "Progressive." "Green economy." "Government takeover of the banking system."
Webb's conclusion? The Obama administration, for the CPUSA, represents a "once in a lifetime opportunity!"
But for who? For Communists? Really? Sam Webb, a person who has dedicated 40 years of his life to attempting to erect a socialist/communist economy in the United States, sees the Obama administration as a "lifetime opportunity"? Does anyone see this as... odd?
Webb finally states, "But I think we can confidently say that change is coming.... Yes We Can!"
I'm sure he is merely being ironic with that last little bit of sloganeering.
So to all the Obamazombies, Commies, and all their fellow travelers, Happy May Day! Enjoy your once in a lifetime opportunity!
