Communists Close Blessed-Historic 'Gay Month'

“Blessed is he who has no family,” Karl Marx wrote to Friedrich Engels, his partner in crime who detested family and marriage so much that he refused both. The partners were not shy about their thoughts on the family. In their most famous joint creation, The Communist Manifesto, they wrote of the “abolition of the family.”

Subsequent communists in the decades and even centuries that followed would seek to redefine family and marriage, but only now, in America in June 2015, is the fundamental transformation finally poised to succeed, as Anthony Kennedy and the Supreme Court’s four liberals have rendered unto themselves a right to redefine something that heretofore had been the province of the laws of nature and nature’s God. Most grateful to Kennedy and the Supremes are their appreciative new comrades in the modern American Communist Party.

Today’s inheritors of Marx and Engels are thrilled with the June 26, 2015 historic decision forever redefining marriage and family in America. Indeed, why wouldn’t they be? Modern liberalism has given modern communism a magnificent vehicle to take down family and marriage and -- best of all -- to hammer religious believers into submission. It has taken communists over two centuries to get here, but they’re finally here.

If these guys weren’t atheists, they’d be shouting, hallelujah! Of course, they can’t thank a God they don’t believe in, one that many ages ago set down a male-female standard for marriage, but communists can certainly thank Joe Q. Liberal, Mr. and Mrs. Mainstreet, and the Supreme Court.

We can measure their gratitude in sources like People’s World, the successor to the longtime Soviet-directed and funded Daily Worker.

In response to the high court’s ruling, the immediate lead article at People’s World was a piece celebrating the ruling. Titled, “Three in a row: SCOTUS upholds marriage equality, Obamacare, Fair Housing Act,” it was actually grateful for the court’s work across-the-board last week.

The article stated: “All three rulings touched off celebrations by tens of millions of progressive-minded people across the United States -- a majority of the people. And the string of decisions cast a pall of gloom over right-wing Republicans.” It then added a key political point looking forward to the 2016 presidential vote, underscoring who communists view as the good guys and bad guys: “The keenest hope of the ultra-right is that they seize control of the White House in 2016 so that a tea party Republican chooses the next Supreme Court justice. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of the staunchest liberals on the high court, is in frail health.”

Read between the lines, comrade: The Marxists at People’s World are telling you that the next great leap forward, an absolute must, is to get Hillary Clinton in the White House in 2016. And if you don’t believe that’s the goal, well, Vladimir Lenin had a name for people like you.

If you need further proof, check out this piece, “Tactics and the 2016 elections,” in the current rotating window of Communist Party USA’s website, which identifies “the ultra right” (i.e., Republicans) as literally “one of the greatest dangers to life on Earth.” Ready for Hillary in 2016!

Back to communists and gay rights and specifically gay marriage….

In all, the month of June was a blessedly historic one for communists in their two-century-long effort to take down marriage and family. All month long, People’s World was celebrating LGBT Pride Month. The communists have seized this issue with abandon, as the gay agenda achieves their dreams of fundamental transformation that until now, in the era of our first Fundamental Transformation and first Gay Marriage President, had remained so long elusive.

The month started at People’s World with no less than three articles on gay topics. One of them was in the rotating window for at least two weeks, celebrating Ireland’s vote for gay marriage. The communists were utterly thrilled about that take down of the Church and natural-traditional-biblical marriage. The other two articles (click here and here) were kick-off pieces marking the communist publication’s month-long daily commemoration of LGBT Pride Month, which continued right through Anthony Kennedy’s gift on June 26.

The day before Kennedy’s landmark opinion came two pieces in People’s World, one titled, “Today in Pride Month history: Homosexuals in Holocaust first publicly recognized,” and the other titled, “Today in LGBTQ history: Stonewall Inn made historic landmark.” Both had photos to call attention to them. Ironically, one is literally far more likely to see the rainbow flag at People’s World nowadays than a red flag with a hammer and sickle.
Really, though, they are, in a sense, one and the same -- at least to the objectives of modern communism. For today’s communists, the gay agenda, especially on marriage, is the hammer and sickle to take down the natural, traditional, biblical, Western/Judeo-Christian model for marriage and family that they’ve always despised.

These are truly exciting times for communists. It has taken two centuries to finally achieve the longtime goal of “abolition of the family.” They could have never done it, of course, without the indispensable help of liberals and of everyday Americans of all stripes. I must say, I’m almost tempted to congratulate them.
