Comrade Atkins Admits Communist Infiltration of Democratic Party
This blog has long contended that the Communist Party USA and other Marxist groups have heavily infiltrated the Democratic Party.
This has enabled the Communist Party to both influence Democratic Party policy and to choose and promote Democratic candidates at all levels.
Forces on the progressive left must organize as currents within the orbit of the Democratic Party, but as elements separate from it. This is the stance taken by the organized labor movement. And, if the CPUSA is honest with itself, we would see that this is an approach which we have already taken for quite some time as well. Our members participate in the Democratic primary process at the local level, volunteer in GOTV (Get Out The Vote) efforts, and many take part in the platform-drafting process in their local Democratic committees. [Emphasis CAJ] More participate in Democratic-aligned outfits such as Organize for America, Progressive Democrats of America, or the Campaign for America’s Future…
…this article is both a call for change as well as a suggestion for the codification of existing practice. The CPUSA has done much to renew itself and join the 21st century. It is now time to move forward with this process and remove any obstacles that still stand in the way of fully participating in the broad democratic upsurge of our times. [Emphasis New Zeal] We are living in an era of change and must do everything to make sure we stay in tune with the movement of history.
The Communist Party USA works closely with the Communist parties of Cuba, China, Russia, and with many Latin America, Africa and Asia.
It’s loyalties do not lie with the United States of America, but with a re-energized and growing international communist movement.
Why isn’t it?
