Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal is helping his state’s communist party celebrate it’s 102nd birthday. As the old saying goes, “Show me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are.”
So, Blumenthal would swear he isn’t a commie, but, heck, he definitely has sympathies.
From American Greatness, December 13:
“Blumenthal stipulated that while one doesn’t have “to agree with anyone and everyone” and every party, he was happy “to honor the great tradition of activism and standing up for individual workers that is represented by the three honorees here.”
And to give you a sense of the moral sewer that “Progressivism” has tumbled into, and the disinterest or deliberate ignoring of communism’s evil and destructive impact on the world over the past century, Blumenthal actually suggested to those gathered for the Connecticut Communist Party’s party that – Shh!!! – Republicans are the real threat to liberty and God-given rights.
Again from the American Greatness article:
“Blumenthal told the attendees that the enemies of Communism (Republicans) are trying to ‘restrict Democracy.’
“Our opponents are trying to restrict Democracy. They are threatening the right to vote in state after state, congressional district after district all around the country, and the John Lewis Voting rights Act,” he complained. The senator called any restrictions on voting undemocratic, and vowed to fight against them.”
No matter that the history is irrefutable: Communists (and let’s throw in their kissing cousins, fascists) killed an estimated 100 million people from the start of the 1917 Russian Revolution forward. Communists crushed hundreds of millions of lives though unceasing oppression. It is, without a doubt, the greatest evil unleashed in human history. One can almost characterize it as “satanic.”
For Dick Blumenthal – who lied about his service in Vietnam, by the way – to honor and celebrate communists is on par with honoring and celebrating Nazis.
But that’s no longer shocking from progressive Democrats nowadays.
