    Take it up with Jones. He said he was.

    You go Keith!
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Remember, I won't always be here to do your basic research for you!

    Emphasis added:
    Jones had planned to move to Washington, DC, and had already landed a job and an apartment there. But in jail, he said, "I met all these young radical people of color -- I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, 'This is what I need to be a part of.'" Although he already had a plane ticket, he decided to stay in San Francisco. "I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary." In the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. "I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th," he said. "By August, I was a communist."

    In 1994, the young activists formed a socialist collective, Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM, which held study groups on the theories of Marx and Lenin and dreamed of a multiracial socialist utopia. They protested police brutality and got arrested for crashing through police barricades. In 1996, Jones decided to launch his own operation, which he named the Ella Baker Center after an unsung hero of the civil-rights movement. Jones wedged a desk and a chair inside a large closet in the back of Paterson's office. He brought in his home computer and ran cables through the rafters to get the operation humming.

    Interesting. Is David Horowitz also a communist, then?

    Personally, I dont give a ****. Imho, it comes with the territory of being a public figure. Tabloids have been doing to to folks for years and I didn't care then and don't now.
    And, the rumor is that Glenn Beck has a similar request out to his listeners/viewers.

    To me its a case of live-by-die-by.

    Although I would argue that Beck is the rights Olberman on steroids, this is all the more reason to root for him.

    Let the meddling talking heads who indoctrinate the populace with hatred and vilification for little more reason than to make millions of dollars on our ignorance duke it out and destroy one another.

    You go Keith!

    Horowitz indeed was one, or very close to one. However, he has vociferously, consistently and actively denounced that former ideology.

    I would grant Mr. Jones the same consideration, were he even remotely as strident.

    By the way, do you know the history of the hymn, "Amazing Grace?"

    Planned collaboration with a liberal democratic capitalist administration more than does it, perhaps even to a greater extent than Horowitz's ideological stance because of two critical factors. Firstly, liberal and social democratic capitalism have typically been both more efficient and effective than their rightist cousin, Anglo-Saxon capitalism. Their implementation therefore maintains stability in the capitalist economy and sustains the arrangement wherein the means of production are privately owned. Secondly, Jones was to be in a position where he would have exerted substantially greater influence than Horowitz...thereby rendering him a more effective defender of capitalism.

    So, an avowed Communist and Truther is exposed and shown to the door, and instead dignified silence on the matter, the Leftists are coming unglued.

    And I thought that this was going to be a dull day!

    I don't get your beef on this one.

    Why are you making a deal of this? Limbaugh oftentimes calls upon his followers to protest the left, even with the Tea Baggers and all the other lame issues he has.

    What's wrong with this?

    Call it what you will, but if it's wrong, it's wrong; if it's OK, it's OK.
    And Limbaugh doesn't spew forth destruction, along with Hannity, O'Reilly and Beck? What, you shocked to see the left stand up to these lying loud mouths?

    Well, get used to it. Day is coming when your time is up on the political spectrum. Republicans are the new nasty word in describing anti-American. Look at how their economic policies made the upper 1% richer than beyond their wildest dreams and destroyed our nation and the world economics in the process.

    It's not a bad word anymore to be a communist. Now declaring yourself a republican is the stuff that makes children shiver with fright in the night.
