Most people don't make a habit of visiting the website of the Communist Party USA. But if you do, in the upper corner you'll see the familiar hammer and sickle that symbolizes the union of the industrial workers and peasantry following the Russian Revolution of 1918.
But take a second look, because the traditional communist logo has been revamped. It now sports a gear, and the elements have been arranged in the shape of - no doubt about it! - the feminist looking-glass symbol. Is it possible that gender liberation ideology is rooted the manifestos of Karl Marx and tactics of Vladimir Lenin?
Keep looking, and you'll see the platform of U.S. Communist Party proclaims, "Among the forms of oppression women experience are attacks on their reproductive rights; lack of quality, affordable day care; inequality in child rearing and household work; sexual harassment on the job; and domestic and sexual violence."
Now let's pay a visit to the website of the National Organization for Women and compare agendas:
Reproductive rights? Yep.
Day care and child-rearing? Check.
Sexual harassment? Yes, of course.
Domestic violence? You bet!
Do you detect a scintilla of difference between the positions advocated by the U.S. Communist Party and the NOW? Neither do I.
So Hillary is a communist because she supports reproductive rights and child care and because she opposes sexual harassment and domestic violence. Wow, I must be a communist, too! Seriously, this is the kind of thing that our side needs to publicize. When the average voter sees how far off the deep end the radical right has gone, it makes us look really good.
