Former union boss at Occupy event:‘overthrow the capitalist system and build communism'
Daily Caller ^ | August 20, 2012 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 08/20/2012 4:20:42 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

Former Amalgamated Transit Union local 689 president Mike Golash, now an “Occupy” movement organizer, was caught on tape Sunday revealing his political goals: overthrowing capitalism in the United States and instituting a communist government.

“Progressive labor is a revolutionary communist organization,” Golash said during an Occupy DC “People’s Assembly” on August 19.

“Its objective,” he added, “is to make revolution in the United States, overthrow the capitalist system and build communism.”

Golash said he and his comrades are “trying to learn something from the historical revolutions of the past: the Russian revolution, the Chinese revolution, the revolutions in Cuba and Eastern Europe.”

“What can we learn from them so we can build a more successful movement to transform capitalist society?”

Shhhhh...........little does the rank and file know that the 40 dollar an hour plus bennies will be reduced to 1 dollar a week and no bennies if his wish comes true, it’s much better to go on public assistance and live like a king.

Openly calling for the overthrow of our government? Naw, that's "patriotism" according to Hillary.

Hey Golash. I've got two words for you: Sat Cong!
So Bub, whenever you feel froggy, look me up. I'm your Huckleberry.

After the collapse of all of the world's communist systems you seriously have to be an utter moron and a deranged idiot to believe communism is a better system than capitalism.

Oh wait, unless you're the one who is arrogantly selfish enough to want to be in "control."

In a phrase, moron: THEY DON’T WORK!

Class dismissed, idiot; time to join Football Head & I’m-A-Dinner-Jacket, in hell!

So what do you think Obama and his whole cabinet believe? We have always had communists and their sympathisers in labor and academia. The whole "antiwar" movement has always been a communist front. Does anyone actually believe that they were for peace?

The only difference is that now we have a "president" who is part of this mob.

If “communism” is so wonderful, why are countries like China invested BIGTIME into the “capitalist free market” ?

Sends a message that communism does not work.

They aren’t “invested”; they’re a parasite on them. The Party leadership in China is just as fanatical as ever about bringing worldwide communism via international revolution.

“Its objective,” he added, “is to make revolution in the United States, overthrow the capitalist system and build communism.”

Well if communism is so great, why does it ALWAYS have to "overthrow" the current naturally existing system?"

Every time it is tried, it did NOT exist as a natural state, it is artificially created by people that proclaim themselves to be "smart."

Then it proceeds to destroy everything and everyone it touches and eventually it crumbles into total disarray as it is being replaced by the natural state of Capitalism.

Often these gems escape national attention- interesting that Fox and Friends got right on this.

I’d like to make them listen to all of Milton Friedman’s tapes until they grasp the concept of FREEDOM.

I may be presumptive but based on the photograph he appears to lack the personal force of personality to survive his own revolution.

This one is a probable “kneeling in surprised incomprehension at the edge of his own killing pit” with a fellow Amalgamated Union comrade’s muzzle pressed to the nape of his neck.

Any bets? Gentlemen?
