The same article praised Obama's election asserting, "We have the opportunity to build something big, a large, influential and effective Communist Party USA. After the incredible movement to elect Barack Obama, more far-reaching solutions and socialism in particular are back at the dinner table for discussion."
It seems they are moving toward attaining their goals. Obama's election, in conjunction with Progressives cannibalizing the Democratic Party by ousting common sense Blue Dogs, aided in a severe shift to the left. Americans have witnessed the deterioration of this nation by way of the same type of race-baiting and class warfare Communism cannot exist without.
Unbecoming to an American president, Obama has led the charge in attacks against job-creators, extended the olive branch to "99 Percent" anarchists, and publicly castigated the third (and his equal) branch of government. Americans have had zero control over the appointments of unsavory anti-capitalist cabinet members like former "Green Czar" and avowed Communist Van Jones.
All things considered, "Washington's newest breath of fresh air," West, is dead-on in his assessment of Democratic Party Progressives. West once said Progressive's should take their message "and get the hell out of America." I think most of us would be happy if they would just "get the hell out of" the Democratic Party and run on their own ticket.
