The National Committee of the Communist Party USA announced an alignment with the Democratic party, likely as a way to make headlines.
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.
