Skip to comments.The Communist Party Is Alive and Well - Cheering Democrat Legislators On MoveOn.Org

We won't see it in black in white in the paper -- or "red" and white -- but it doesn't take an investigative reporter to see the money trail into Texas to fund the Democratic walkout on the Texas legislature.
(Excerpt) Read more at txcan.org ...
If it were Jim Leininger (a conservative philanthropist from San Antonio) funding this, the media across the state would plaster the news that a "conservative" was backing an effort -- but the activist arm of the Communist Party of Texas funds the Democrats' efforts to derail redistricting and the media is deafeningly silent.
The Texas Senators may have decided to go back to work but questions linger regarding the walk-out and its aftermath. Who was funding the Democrats' boycott of the Texas redistricting called sessions? And who is funding the ads criticizing Gov. Rick Perry for calling the sessions?
MoveOn.Org is organizing the protests at the Capitol and is on record offering financial support to the Senator boycott, and the Democratic National Committee offered support for the House walk-out.
MoveOn.Org is the activist arm of the Communist Party USA. But their name belies the organization's purpose. The voters of Texas have a right to know more.
It's time we lift the curtain of secrecy and ask Sen. Leticia Van de Putte and her fellow truant Senators if she will tear down the wall of misinformation and answer to Texas citizens why the Communist Party is interested in funding their efforts.
A quick review of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) and the MoveOn.Org web site (its link is on the CPUSA web page) reveal their focus in a headline "Push Bush Out the Door in 2004) and the MoveOn.Org web site features a speech Al Gore gave the MoveOn group August 17 at New York University.
Citizens will likely not be surprised that the Communist Party USA is focused on helping the Democrats subvert the Democratic process in Texas. But their real purpose appears to be to defeat Republicans and elect Democrats.
For the record, the legislature has the constitutional responsibility for redistricting and legislators have a responsibility to the voters of Texas to show up and vote.
From the Communist Party USA website:
It will take an extraordinary united all-peoples front with a movement on the ground to defeat the Bush right-wing agenda in 2004. It can be done with the combination of the labor vote, the womens vote, and African-American and Latino vote, combined with the youth vote, the peace vote, the environmental vote, the senior vote, the farm vote, etc. all of whom are pledged to work as they never have before.
The Communist Party USA meeting in New York City June 28-29, 2003 concluded that the most urgent task facing the working class and its allies in the next 17 months is mobilizing a broad people's coalition to defeat George W. Bush and the ultra-right Republicans in the 2004 elections.
The work and activity of the whole party for the next 18 months should center around the defeat of Bush and the Republican majority in Congress. Discussions should take place now on the situation in each district including to identify targeted congressional races.
The Communist Party USA is an organization of activists in labor and all the people's movements with three main political aims:
You don't have to be a Communist to be part of this effort or make important contributions to it, but it helps!
That is because the Communist Party is an organization of activists in every part of the expanding labor-led coalition and can therefore help unite and strengthen the overall movement against the ultra-right danger. It is also because the Party has a rich experience and history, a deep understanding of the long-range forces that are at work and a clear vision of what is possible if the corporate-right-wing coalition is defeated and labor and its allies are able to take the offensive.
Although they don't specify what their "clear vision of what is possible" is, I am sure the people of Russia, China, North Korea, Cuba, Vietnam, Cambodia, et al, could help flesh that out. The ones that weren't mass-murdered, that is.
And may I add what the Communist Party scrupulously avoids saying outright:
You can accomplish all Communist goals by simply voting Democrat!
WOW! Until I read the article-I thought it was simply calling the DNC the commie party.
The communist party ACTUALLY is funding the democrats.....and links to moveon.org on its website!!!!
This is fairly scary and very confirming of what we all suspected.
This needs to be broadcast MUCH further than the to the good folks of Texas. Altho the author is right-they indeed have a right to know who funded the silly, irresponsible walkout down there.
This is news. Big news. And it is time to bring moveon out and move it up into the media for scrutiny. Especially if it is taking MONEY from the communist party! That is one special interest group even blinded joe sixpack would object to....BIG TIME.
I sent the link to FoxNews and begged them to research it and expose it...say a prayer that our enemies continue to be exposed for who and what they truly are.
Also nice to see you away from the bowels of science threads... :-)
