US Communist Party Crows Over Obama Victory

From the head of the Communist Party, via their propaganda sheet, People’s World (formerly the Daily Worker):

Democracy comes out on top on Nov. 6

By Sam Webb

After a long and bitterly contested battle, the forces of inclusive democracy came out on top yesterday. The better angels of the American people spread their wings, as they went to the polls…

Moreover, the balance of forces – that is, the ground on which people fight going forward – has shifted in a progressive direction. And thanks in large measure goes to what might be the most notable development in this election – the emergence of a multi-racial, male-female, working-class-based electoral coalition that has the potential to transform America in the years and decades ahead.

The Communist Party said a year ago that the 2012 elections would be the main front of the class and democratic struggle, and subsequent events have confirmed that fact.

Indeed, we argued (and not everyone on the left agreed and probably still don’t) that defeating right wing extremism was the key to moving the whole chain of democratic struggle forward in the coming period.

Note that this is confirmation that it is only “rightwing extremists” who are opposing the advances of communism.

Conversely, we said that a victory by right-wing extremism would set into motion a far-reaching assault on the people’s living standards, rights, and organizational capacities, the likes that we’ve never seen.

And never mind that the American standard of living has never gone down faster than it has under Obama. In fact, it’s been going down faster since the recovery than during the recession.

    Since Tuesday I’ve had this feeling like I’m in “Red Dawn.” Seriously.

    In times where clear choices are not apparent, look to see whom your enemies support, and then chose the opposite.

    I think I’m going to throw up. I’ve already lost three pounds since Tuesday.

    What do you call a “new recession” when you are already living in a recession? A depression, that’s what.

    Y’all come on over. It’s movie night here and we’re gonna watch The Blues Brothers. The password at the door is “I hate Illinois Nazis”. Free beer and fried chicken. Firearms mandatory.

    I only watched part of the new one. The guy who tries to play Jake is the same asshole who used to sleep with and suck face on tv with rosanne barrFF.

    John Belushi was funny, even if he was a coke head.
    Ever see 1941?

    I’ll put 1941 on my ‘to get’ list. The only modern remake I’m interested in seeing is True Grit but even with all the hype I don’t see how it can possibly be better than the original. Fuck Roseanne and everyone associated with her except that hawt goth chick who played Darlene.

    I watched the new True Grit with my grandson and then I made him watch the original John Wayne version to rid his mind of the faggy new version.
    You can’t redo John Wayne. The libs want to replace him. It ain’t working in my family.

    My parrot squalks loudly at Elizabeth Warren pictures (0bama too) and sometimes tries to bite the monitor. The bird vet says he’s reading my reactions and mirroring them.

    I’m watched the Great White Warrior crouch in the grass and leap 6′+ to catch Barn Swallows, and they’re fast and maneuverable. Plus there’s two other felines – they come to us like we’re the kitteh rescue center. Bring the parrot, but bring a cage too. Just in case.

    Holloyrude is so permeated with Commies, that it has become its own mutual admiration society…not bad for a Leper Colony, eh? They can sit around day and night picking each other’s decaying scabs off their collective behinds…
