The video above is from June. Some convenient changes to a CPUSA website: it has apparently scrubbed one of its sites to erase its 2004 support of Barack Obama.
In 2007, CPUSA boasted about that support:
Not so much anymore. Today, an edited version leaves out some key information:
There seems to be two possible explanations. Either CPUSA has pulled its support because Obama isn’t progressive enough, or CPUSA could be protecting the president from scrutiny. Why do you think that the Communist Party USA did this? Is it because they don't think Obama is far enough to the left for them or is it because they are trying to protect him as the communist pick? I never thought I'd see so much about the communist party here in America. A lot of this underground communism is coming from the school system and the unions. Take a close look at some of the union magazines that are out there. They speak the same language as communist but they never say communism or socialism. They stay away from labels unless it's to label the opposition. They love to label us.
