SDS General Educational Development by: Cliff Kincaid, May 06, 2008
Tom Hayden, who cheered for a communist military victory in Vietnam, is calling attention to Senator Hillary Clintons old ties to communists. But Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein, formerly of the Washington Post, wonders if Hillarys comments on Senator Barack Obamas ties to communist terrorist Bill Ayers constitute McCarthyism.
Bernstein, now an election analyst for CNN, has reason to be concerned about where all of this may lead. His parents were members of the Communist Party USA, and he says in his book about them, Loyalties, I am proud of the choices they made....
The basic message of Hayden and Bernstein seems to be that the Democrats should abandon the practice of linking either presidential candidate to communists because they are both tainted. But were just beginning to get to the heart of the issue. Do we have candidates that are in any way linked or sympathetic to the greatest killing machine in the history of planet earth? The Black Book of Communism puts the death toll from communism at about 100 million. A memorial to the victims of communism has been erected in Washington, D.C....
We know where Obamas pastor Jeremiah Wright stands. We know that his charge that the U.S. created AIDS was based on Soviet disinformation...
One can understand why Hayden, a member of Progressives for Obama, takes offense. Hayden and Ayers were key members of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), the violence-prone group that laid ...

A shocker, that a guy obsessed with deposing the President of the United States had parents who worked for an enemy power.
Let us not talk about the Democrat/Communist Party...this is rich as these old hippie/Commies get outed...Op. Chaos has mucho beneficio!
Wouldn't that be "Swiftboating"? Telling politically relevant truths about someone in a campaign?
I have long wondered why this was not a big deal during the Watergate Inquisition. I have done my part to tell people about Bernstein's communist upbringing but it never seemed to be germane to the MSM.
But there WERE no Communists in the United States from 1938-1968. The history books didn’t LIE did they? Was there some TRUTH the Communist menace in America serving in the service of Joseph Stalin and the USSR, knowingly or unknowingly as Lenin’s “useful idiots” (his own phrase)?
The American Spectator's current issue has an article about a 'fun park' in Lithuania that let's people see what life was like under the communists (some alive it that area today have grown up without communists threatening them). The park had the guard towers, torture chambers, and plenty to remind the people living in the Baltics of just how bad life was for them.
Too bad US communists, most having never had to live under that vile form of government, are so well entrenched in academia and the media. Most of them, especially the Hollywood types would not last long in the real system, as they would be swept off to the labor camps for opening their big yaps about the lack of food or healthcare.
They should visit North Korea, China, Cuba....
I have some tips for them.
Take LOTS and LOTS of pictures. Ask the man on the street for his views on the issues of the day. Wear a politically charged t-shirt as you go sight seeing.
