It may be early in the campaign season, but the Communist Party USA already has seen fit to endorse Barack Obama for the 2012 election.

While noting he is disappointed with “some aspects” of the Obama administration’s domestic and foreign policy, Sam Webb, chairman of the Communist Party USA, threw his support behind Obama’s re-election bid.

Communist party covers up support for Obama

Last November, the Communist Party USA was caught scrubbing its website of references that stated it “actively supported” President Obama’s election.

An article posted on the party’s official website on Dec. 30, 2007, previously stated, “Our Party actively supported Obama during the primary election.”

The article was referring to Obama’s 2004 election to the Senate. It detailed how the African-American community and trade unionists played key roles in defeating the “ultra right.”

Communists map out Obama agenda

Immediately following the November 2008 presidential election the Communist Party USA mapped out policies crucial for Obama to push through in his first term, including a “single payer” socialist health-care system; laws to make joining a labor union easier; raising the minimum wage and increasing labor union support.

In May 2009, WND reported the leader of the Communist Party USA declared that with Obama as president, health care and the economy can be “reformed,” U.S. troops can be evacuated from the Middle East, a second stimulus bill can be passed, the criminal justice system can be overhauled and union rights can be expanded.

“All these – and many other things – are within our reach now!” exclaimed Webb in a New York banquet speech for the People’s Weekly World, the official newspaper of the Communist Party USA.


We’ve got to finish what we started. Soon we’re gathering for our convention in Charlotte — and Barack and I would like to meet a few of you there.

Pitch in $5 or whatever you can to help build this campaign in these last 82 days — and you’ll be automatically entered to be our personal guest in Charlotte.

This is a pretty amazing opportunity. The campaign will fly you and a guest to Charlotte and cover your hotel for the three nights you’re there. And each night, you’ll get some of the best seats in the house to watch the big speeches.

Are you as fired up as I am?

Michelle Obama
