The “mainstream media” is excited over revelations that House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) addressed a white supremacist group in 2002.
And so they should be. The voting public has every right to know the associations of those they elect and pay to serve.
None of us want covert racists or extremists anywhere near public policy. We can all agree on that right?
So, to help the media to do the job they’re obviously so committed to, I’ve compiled a list of very troubling associations for their fearless journalists to investigate and expose.
Did you know that many leading Democrat politicians have close ties to the Communist Party USA? You know… the Party that supports China, Cuba, Venezuela and even Iran.
The evidence below only scratches the surface (for more complete information you can find my books here), but it should be enough to get the ball rolling.
Here’s senior Democratic Rep. Rosa DeLauro with Joelle Fishman, head of the Connecticut Communist Party, in the Party HQ, 37 Howe Street New Haven, August of 2010.
Rosa DeLauro, Joelle Fishman
Here’s Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton with leading Minnesota/Dakotas Communist Party leader Mark Froemke, January 14, 2010.
Mark Froemke, Governor Dayton
Here’s comrade Froemke with Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar at a July 1, 2009, Al Franken rally.
Klobuchar second to right, Froemke right
Here’s Mark Froemke chatting with Senator Franken on January 11, 2012.
Al Franken, Mark Froemke
Here’s a screen shot of the minutes of a December 1999, secret Communist Party USA meeting that was held at the May Day Bookstore in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Note Mark Froemke’s name. Also note below that Mark Ritchie, a “non party friend,” was a guest speaker.
This is the same Mark Ritchie who later became Minnesota Secretary of State. The one who kept finding votes until Al Franken had JUST ENOUGH TO GET ELECTED in 2008.
And here’s Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, writing for the Communist Party’s Peoples World in August of 2014.
Over in Illinois, it’s pretty much the same.
Here’s a 2009 shot of Senator Dick Durbin with leading Chicago Communist Party member Bea Lumpkin.
Bea Lumpkin, Dick Durbin
Here’s Bea Lumpkin with Rep. Jan Shakowsky in 2012 at a Chicago Dinner in Comrade Lumpkin’s honor.
Bea Lumpkin, Jan Schakowsky
Here’s two Chicago Reps, Bobby Rush and Danny Davis, addressing the Chicago Communist party’s annual banquet in September of 1997. Davis was also at the 1989, 1990, 1998, 2000 and 2011 banquets.
Now for Red State Arizona.
Here’s an article written by Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva for the Communist Party paper back in 1993.
Here’s Arizona Rep. Kyrsten Sinema endorsing a Communist Party May Day Appeal back in 2002. She did it again in 2003.
People’s World, May 4, 2002
Down in even redder Texas, we have a similar situation.
Here’s Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson writing for the People’s World in December of 2001.
Here’s Democratic party Golden Boy Joaquin Castro with San Antonio Communist Party supporter Patti Radle in March of 2013.
Patti Radle, Joaquin Castro
And here’s Fort Worth based Rep. Mark Veasey with his self described “friend,” Texas Communist Party leader Gene Lantz, February 20, 2013.
Lantz, left, Veasey second left
Here’s Comrade Lantz again. This time with Houston based Rep. Al Green.
Lantz second from left, Green, second from right
And that’s not even looking at Florida, Wisconsin, Michigan, Oregon, Washington State or the Communist Party strongholds of New York and California!!!!
Could there be an issue here?
