Since Barack Obama has taken office, the SEIU-backed rallies against responsible Republican reforms in Wisconsin have been the closest thing on the left to the Tea Party rallies against big government on the right. Like most rallies, theirs have attracted a number of extremists shouting angry slogans and hosting mean-spirited posters.
Last March, when a handful of Tea Party members protesting the president’s health care overhaul called “Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) . . . a ‘Homo Communist’“, that unhappy Massachusetts Democrat said his GOP colleagues needed “to do more to ‘differentiate themselves’ from the hateful speech spewed in the healthcare debate’s final hours.”
Now, Zombie alerts us not to conservatives using “Communist” as a slur, but to actual participants in an rally “co-sponsored by the SEIU” proudly proclaiming themselves as Communists: “Not only did the SEIU help to organize the rally in conjunction with communists, they marched side-by-side with communists, while union members carried communist flags, communists carried union signs, and altogether there was no real way to tell the two apart.”
Just wondering, if Barney doesn’t do more to “differentiate himself” from these Commies, does that mean they are representative of Democrats, given Communist participation in a rally of one of that party’s key allies?
