Marxist Democrat Cringes As Russian Immigrants Compare Communism to…Democrats!
Red State ^ | 16 January 2011

Posted on 01/17/2011 1:33:00 PM PST by jda

". . . some of New York’s Russian immigrants (who know Soviet-style Communism all-too-well) are aligning with Republicans—because they view Democrats’ policies to be too similar to the failed policies of their homeland . . ."

Legal immigrants are welcomed in the US and continue to contribute positively to our nation, and they aren't easily swayed and aren't afraid to tell the truth.

All the democrats and a few republicans would cringe if we read the communist goals for America on the house floor again.

What took them so long? Most of the Russians are very very smart.

How do I know? Because they tell you - constantly.

And these people lived under it so they know first hand. A couple of Christmas’ ago I helped deliver some food baskets to some Ukrainian immigrants, the lady in the apartment knew only a few words in English. She cried and just said “love America, love America”.

Here where I work in New Jersey we had a guy working with us who was from the former Soviet Union. Once while I was having a political debate with a democrat co-worker in the office he stood up and started backing me up telling my democrat co-worker that the democrats were just like the communists in Russia. It was classic. My Marxist democrat co-worker did not how to respond after that.

I remember an observation made some years ago whose author’s name now escapes me—maybe Thomas Sowell or Walter Williams?: (paraphrased) “What do you think the socialists and communists in the U.S. did when the Soviet Union collapsed? Recognize the error of their ways and start voting Republican? No, they decided to infiltrate the major political party most consistent with communist goals—the Democrats—and use it to carry their agenda forward.”

You can’t compare the policies of the Democratic Party with communism. Does "Yes, we can!" resonate with anyone?

Hey Democrats, take a good look at our close neighbor Cuba. America will look like that if we keep letting you bungholes stay in office. The commie government down there runs every phase of life. Yes, runs the county right into a poverty stricken third world country. What a goal you guys have.

LOL. Maybe you think its absurd, honey, but the rest of us don't. There isn't a dime's worth of difference between the Dems and Communists when it comes to economic policy and wealth redistribution.

Hi--i read this a week or so ago, and do not know how to save/keep it. I have i-Mac Leopard. Can you tell me anything about how to do this? I want to send it to a couple of my brainwashed grandchildren, one of whom works at CNN, Atlanta--what more can I say?

I learned to despise the bureaucracy while working inside it, and KNOW govt. is too sluggish, nepotism oriented, and huge to ever function well.

These 2 VOTED for Obama. They are truly pathetic and think they are God's gift to civilization, and have blown me off as a dimwit old lady--they are going to SAVE the world along with the Dems and Obama.

If you cannot tell me how to save it, give me the info to find it on the net.

Friends of mine are Russian Jews from Moscow and are ardent Republicans. My dtr and theirs have been friends since they were 6 y/o, at a time when the dtr didn’t speak English, it was funny seeing them play together and speak in each others language. My dtr learned some Russian and Ludmilla learned English. They were each others Matron of Honor at their weddings. We used to celebrate our holidays together until we moved.

Today’s Democratic Party is a communist party. If it weren’t, we could expect to find some differences, but there are none. Democrats are communists who are too cowardly to admit it in public. It’s possible to find greater political differences between any two participants at a Tea Party rally.

These Russian Immigrants... should be hired (and well paid) by the GOP to do a dozen different commercials.

That would be the most effective ad campaign ever mounted.

Vaudine,

The simplest way I know is to click on the source link and then send a link to the source to your friends. I do that (rather than linking to FR) because most lefties dismiss FR as a credible source.

To send the weblink, simply open a new email and drag the web address from the address line above.

The communist party of America long ago stated they wouldn’t be fielding a presidential candidate because he would be redundant to the DemocRat.

Of course not, Diane. What could I have been thinking? You just haven't gotten around to the gulags and the mass graves quite yet. Otherwise, the poicies of the DSUSA mirror the original Communist Party objectives for the US. You know - the ones that were read into the Congressinal record decades aago.

herbal medicine

etc

4. Print it..highlight and print.

State Sen. Diane Savino (D-North Shore/Brooklyn) said she understands the Russian aversion to anything that looks like big government, but thinks the criticism of the Democratic Party is off-base.

“You can’t ignore the fact that the Russian population here came of age during the Soviet era,” said Ms. Savino, who counts many Russians among her Brooklyn constituents.

“They have different thoughts on what communism and socialism mean. They are a little more sensitive to it.

“But, that being said,” she added, “you can’t compare the policies of the Democratic Party with communism. It’s absurd.

Thanks! Those are only 2 of my 11 grandchildren. Have two more college grads who are smart and savvy and VERY conservative--their votes cancelled the other 2 out. The 32 year old calls me just to get my opinion of news. Unlike the other grandson, this one knows his grandma is smart.

Back in 1964 when I first voted for POTUS, I was working with a gal who was born in Latvia. She and her parents were staunch Republicans. They had fled the communists following WWII. They had a German name, so I think they may have been expelled. But, they had absolutely no time for any Communists. Her father had been in the Latvian army before the war.

I should add to the list anyone who lived in Vietnam during the Vietnam War.

All those Vietnameese that came to America, that I have met, are staunch Republicans (if not neccessarily so-cons, but they do pull the lever for “R” always)

The commie government down there runs every phase of life.

When productive citizens start to believe what I'm about to say the hand wringing about Democrats and their ridiculous philosophy will no longer keep you up at night. And, hopefully, we'll start to understand (probably already do) the fight ahead.

Democrats are looters and parasites. The looters prey on the productive and feed the parasites. As with all parasites, there must be a host to survive. That host is the freedom loving productive citizens of these United States.

The looters are the real problem (evil) because they are the Democrats with power of law and the force of government (at the point of a gun). The parasites support the looters so they "can get theirs". The parasites could care less about the future and live "in the now" with a day to day outlook on what they can get for free.

The looters all think that when full control of the citizenry is attained, the rules will not apply to them. They will be a protected class. Little do they know they the lesser of the looters (i.e. leftists and true believers) will be the first ones up against the wall or in line for the gallows.

There's something a little bigger than meets the eye in this article:

The Soviet emigres (a good percentage of whom are Jewish, BTW) and their descendants voted overwhelmingly for the GOP in the last presidential election. There's no reason why that should change in the future, for the reasons discussed in the article.

Republicans can score some political gains by taking a page out of the traditional 'Rat playbook: organizing and registering this potentially loyal ethnic bloc of newly arrived prospective voters.
