They should feel right at home now that far left progressives have taken over the Democratic Party.
Democrats have always been a leftist party but they used to welcome people like JFK who famously told Americans not to ask what their country could do for them. Today, the core beliefs of the Democratic Party are represented by Obama and Elizabeth Warren who can’t stop obsessing about income inequality and fairness.
They beat a constant drum demonizing the rich and telling poor people that the system is rigged against them because other people have more than them. Class, race and gender warfare are the banner issues for today’s Democrats.
Communist Party USA Chairman Vows Cooperation With Democratic Party
The chairman of the National Committee of the Communist Party USA has penned a 2,023-word manifesto making the critical point that American Communists are eager to work with the Democratic Party to advance the modern communist agenda and achieve communist goals.
Communist Party chairman John Bachtell published his essay last week at People’s World, a “daily news website of, for and by the 99% and the direct descendant of the Daily Worker.”
“[L]abor and other key social forces are not about to leave the Democratic Party anytime soon,” Bachtell promised. “They still see Democrats as the most realistic electoral vehicle” to fight against perceived class enemies.
Bachtell, 58, is playing the long political game and he has a strategy, he said.
“First, we are part of building the broadest anti-ultra right alliance possible, uniting the widest array of class (including a section of monopoly), social and democratic forces. This necessarily means working with the Democratic Party,” the communist leader explained.
What do you think the Occupy movement is all about?
What do you think is happening in Greece?
Just ask Senator Bernie Sanders.
We’re six years into Obama’s presidency, yet the United States is still engaged in “overseas contingency operations” in multiple countries.
This makes the left mad so naturally, Code Pink invaded a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing today to attack… Henry Kissinger. Apparently, Henry Kissinger is in charge of the United States now and is directing all military operations for America.
I’ve never been to a senate hearing or even the house of representatives so I don’t know what procedures are used to admit the public. But I have to wonder: How do these scumbags keep getting in?
Kudos to John McCain for calling these people the low life scum they are.
Jim Treacher has a few other words to describe this crowd.
The success of the film ‘American Sniper’ is driving the left insane and bringing out their ugliest side. I should also mention, that this wasn’t just an MSNBC guest. This was an actual reporter for NBC News.
As my Legal Insurrection colleague Amy Miller observed, this is about more than a movie…
Progressives like Mohyeldin are doing this not because they’re angry that a military movie made such a smash hit on American culture, but because they’re absolutely terrified that someone they believe is by default a racist murderer (by virtue of the fact that he was a sniper in a war zone that happened to be in the Middle East) could capture the hearts and minds of Americans that progressives so decisively lost in 2014.
Amy is exactly right. Progressives have owned Hollywood for years and crank out film after film portraying the American military as a force of evil in the world. The popularity of American Sniper represents a threat to their control of the narrative and they can’t have that.
Leftists are insulted if you refer to Bradley Manning as… Bradley Manning. They also twist themselves into knots insisting that Bowe Bergdahl is some kind of hero.
This is what they think of Chris Kyle and his admirers…
By the way…
Would you believe that Bradley Manning’s Wikipedia entry refers to him as Chelsea Manning?
The whole brouhaha is about power. You see, people with cushy and influential government positions like to keep them but up and coming Democrats want a shot at those positions too.
The CBC is sending a clear message about that.

CBC Chairman Threatens Racism Smear Against Fellow Dems in Seniority Fight
Nowhere in the rulebook does it say that Democrats can’t play the race card against other Democrats.
With young House Democrats itching to break into the leadership ranks held by senior Democrats, the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus issued a veiled threat that his organization wouldn’t hesitate to smear the fresh faces with a racism charge in order to keep the top spots they’ve acquired over the years.
The issue has come up because some junior Democrats are calling for limits on how long someone can hold the spot of ranking member on a House committee. Politico reports:
North Carolina Rep. G.K. Butterfield, chairman of the Black Caucus, said African-American members plan to “express ourselves very loudly” during the term limit debate. He called the timing of the discussion “very interesting.”
“We’re now at a phase that many of our CBC members hold senior positions within the caucus, and we’re beginning to get ranking member positions all over the caucus — and why now?” Butterfield said.
What’s that old saying about reaping what you sow?
Some people on the left are very angry that John Boehner has invited Netanyahu to speak to congress. In the progressive world, if you do or say anything that might make Obama look bad you become public enemy number one.
Some liberals on Twitter are even calling Boehner’s actions treason…
Obama and members of his administration initially claimed that they wouldn’t meet with Netanyahu during his visit because they didn’t want it to appear that they’re trying to influence Israel’s upcoming election.
Then an anonymous source in the administration claimed that Netanyahu’s acceptance of Boehner’s invitation was akin to spitting in Obama’s face and that there would be a price to pay.
So I’m sure this is purely coincidental…
State Department-Funded Group Bankrolling Anti-Bibi Campaign
A U.S. State Department-funded group is financing an Israeli campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and has hired former Obama aides to help with its grassroots organizing efforts.
U.S.-based activist group OneVoice International has partnered with V15, an “independent grassroots movement” in Israel that is actively opposing Netanyahu’s party in the upcoming elections, Ha’aretz reported on Monday. Former national field director for President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign Jeremy Bird is also reportedly involved in the effort.
Something tells me Obama’s low-info devotees haven’t read that report.
This is good news…
A Note To My Readers
One of the things I’ve always tried to do at the Dish is to be up-front with readers. This sometimes means grotesque over-sharing; sometimes it means I write imprudent arguments I have to withdraw; sometimes it just means a monthly update on our revenues and subscriptions; and sometimes I stumble onto something actually interesting. But when you write every day for readers for years and years, as I’ve done, there’s not much left to hide. And that’s why, before our annual auto-renewals, I want to let you know I’ve decided to stop blogging in the near future.
I used to read Andrew Sullivan sometimes during the Bush years. I didn’t always agree with him but he sometimes wrote interesting posts.
Then the 2008 election happened and Sullivan drank the Obama Kool-Aid. Big time. As part of his membership requirements in the Cult of Obama, he did everything in his power to destroy Sarah Palin politically and personally.
Some people in media are using his retirement announcement to praise him and his work. Feh.
If we lived in a country with a fair media environment, Sullivan’s bizarre “Trig Trutherism” would have caused him to be laughed and shamed off the national stage years ago.
Enjoy your retirement, Andrew.
And don’t think it hasn’t been wonderful. Because it hasn’t.
I just ventured out to bring you more exclusive photos of #Snowmageddon2015.
From Anytown, Massachusetts north of Boston.
It took quite a while just to get out of the house.
And to shovel the steps.
