Communist Party USA Announces Alignment With Democrats
The Democratic party remains entrenched in an agenda to pursue ideals based in socialism. Whether it’s free healthcare, free education, or monthly stipends for the unemployed and employed, socialism is a real part of the Democratic party’s pitch to America. That said, the relationship between the Democratic party and socialism is contentious. Democrats, at times, deny their attempting to implement versions of socialism that’s led to societal collapses around the world.
All the same, the National Committee of the Communist Party USA feels that at this point in time, Democrats best represent their own party’s ideals. In an in-depth write-up titled, “People’s World,” John Batchell, the current chairman of the organization, said that until a like-minded third party rises to prominence, his organization’s members need to support Democrats.
“It’s true both parties are dominated by Wall Street interests … [but] the Democratic Party is also home to labor, African Americans, Latinos, other communities of color, women, most union members, young people and a wide range of social and democratic movements … [and] labor and other key social forces are not about to leave the Democratic Party anytime soon,” Batchell said in his statement to members.
“This necessarily means working with the Democratic Party,” Mr. Bachtell continued, signaling that members need to embrace Democrats during the 2020 campaign season.
Batchell believes that the Democratic party can help to advance communist agendas, but does not believe that the Democratic party is the end-game for implementing communism in the United States. Rather, he feels Democrats’ views on labor issues are the closes thing to communism going. You can read the letter in full here.
Socialism and even communism are ideals that are becoming more and more readily acceptable by people in free countries. Although, the recent NBA/Lebron James squabble with China shows that America has a long way to go until harsh government overreach is accepted across the masses.
