While doing my usual survey of People's World, Communist Party USA's (CPUSA) successor publication to the Daily Worker, a particular headline caught my eye, "Beatrice Lumpkin's extraordinary book about her extraordinary life."

For the record, People's World doesn't mention Lumpkin's relationship with Obama. That isn't surprising.

"Freude im Kampf: Mein Leben und Liebe "
Wasnt there another book called "Mein Kampf" - by another famous German National Socialist? ... what was his name?
I read the Daily Worker for the personal ads.
Barack Obama, our first communist president.
I think it was Hintner or Hister, can't recall.
“I read the Daily Worker for the personal ads.”
Commie chicks are for practice.
In 1934 being called a Fascist was not nearly the insult it is today (unless you are a Communist). Fascism was respected as a forward thinking political/economic system in many circles; American Progressives for instance.
