Comrade Jesse Jackson

WASHINGTON — We’ve found out in recent weeks that Jesse Jackson is a financial chiseler and a marital cheat.
What most Americans still don’t know about him is that he is also in bed with the American Stalinists of the Communist Party USA.
Here’s the evidence of what I charge:
I could go on and on. Jackson may not be an official, card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA, but he could not be serving the group’s interests more if he was. The Communists love him. He’s been their standard-bearer in electoral politics and grass-roots community organizing for at least 15 years.
More importantly, suggests the voluminous coverage Jackson has received in the official Communist press, he represents the party’s best political hope to hijack the Democratic Party for its own purposes.
Study the issues. See if you can detect even the slightest disagreement or conflict between the positions of the Communist Party and the Rev. Jesse Jackson. I dare you. You won’t find much. They are strong political allies because they agree 99 percent of the time.
Of course, it’s nothing new for the Communist Party to work within the Democratic Party. They did it with Franklin D. Roosevelt. Then they split along with Henry Wallace. But they came back into the Democratic Party political fold in 1972, when George McGovern got the nomination. And they have been there ever since — sometimes working directly on behalf of the nominee, as they did with Al Gore in 2000, and sometimes working for a dissident like Jackson.
But no “mainstream” political leader in U.S. history has ever cozied up quite so close to the Communists as Jackson.
Crook, cheat, commie with a small “c” — does Jesse Jackson need to collect any more baggage before we dismiss him and his discredited, statist, collectivist ideas from the national debate?
