In Michigan, Americans for Prosperity is going as far as it can with the conservative claim that President Barack Obama is a communist.An advertisement (pictured above) for a State of the Union watch party in Michigan sponsored by AFP features Obama with the Kremlin in the background. The ad reads "Thank You, Comrade Obama: for Saving the Children from the menace of guns, family, liberty, work, and other outdated values."
The ad seems to be a play off of an communist advertisement featuring Joseph Stalin.
Americans For Prosperity Ad Puts Obama's Head On Stalin's Body
Through executions, gulags, and intentional famines, Joseph Stalin killed over 20 million of his own people. He is easily the most murderous dictator in history (more people died under Mao due to famines, but no one in history has sentenced more people to death than Stalin). He is quite possibly the most brutal dictator in history. Yet Americans for Prosperity thinks that President Obama is somehow comparable??
