Communists Ecstatic Over Economy, Obama

The recent economic turmoil and the terrifying possibility that Barack Obama could actually be elected President aren’t bad news for everyone. The US Communist Party is delighted[1]. At the party’s New York headquarters, regional party chairman Libero Della Piana crows:

We are very excited, we feel that we are at a turning point. We can afford to be less on the defensive for the first time since Ronald Reagan, and we can say our word in rebuilding America on a new basis, rebuilding a better world, instead of one based on the greed of the few.

Of course, to rebuild the country as the Soviet Union II, first they’ll have to bulldoze the old America. Obama plans to accomplish this by jacking up taxes in the face of a recession, which can be expected to produce a depression. The last depression gave us the New Deal, including a host of entitlement programs that will eventually bankrupt the country. But FDR’s misguided socialist thuggery will look like a blossoming of liberty compared to what Obama’s supporters have in mind.

Exults Della Piana:

We hope to be part of the discussion. I can see a role for the Communist Party in this next period.

Many of his staff wear pictures of Obama on lapel buttons. All BHO has done is smoke a lot of dope and write two memoirs, but already he’s up there with Marx and Stalin, based on what he threatens to do to the world’s Last Best Hope.
