US Communists Declare Election Victory

By

Well, well, well. If Political Affairs ("Marxist thought online") is to be believed, the Communist Party, USA is declaring victory in the Democrats' sweep of both houses of Congress.

"The right—wing stranglehold on Congress has been broken," declared Joelle Fishman, chair of the Communist Party USA's (CPUSA) political action commission, to a meeting of its 81—person National Committee this past weekend.

Fishman noted, "This is a victory being celebrated around the world."

Fishman delivered her report to the committee as it discussed the results of the election and prepared to move the struggle for democracy, peace, and economic justice forward in the new Congress, and to build the size and influence of the Communist Party.

Overwhelmingly, the committee claimed victory for the US working class, the world, and for democracy as a result of the landslide that swept the Republican Party from power in Congress.

"Our Party gave its heart and soul to the struggle," declared CPUSA's Executive Vice—chair Jarvis Tyner.

This is not some right—winger accusing the Democrats of being fronts for the commies. This is commies claiming that the Democrats' victory is their own victory.

Draw your own conclusions.
