A video by Rebel Pundit is powerful. In it, you’ll see Democrat Congressman Danny K. Davis, who State Senator Barack Obama claimed was “one of the best Congressman in the country…because he shares our values,” receive an award from a gaggle of communists.
Davis is proud of the award, up until he realizes he’s talking to a blogger and not a fellow communist sympathizer.
Then, it’s a low speed footrace to the Congressman’s vehicle, which I noticed is not a hybrid, but an SUV:
“Oh I thought you were just a citizen. Why would you be worried about the Communist Party?”
Millions of dead in the USSR, China and Cambodia are reason enough.
More from Rebel Pundit:
Upon receiving the People’s World “Chris Hani & Rudy Lozano Social Justice Award,” Davis reflected, “Rudy Lozano and I worked closely together to try and build and a relationship between Latino and African-American activists and union types…we called ourselves ‘Progressives.’”
Further investigation into the nature of the award reveals that Chris Hani, one of the figures for whom Congressman Davis’s award was named, was an anti-apartheid activist and chief-of-staff in the armed branch of the African National Congress. Hani spent much of his life in exile from South Africa and received military training in the Soviet Union, returning to South Africa in 1990. In 1991, he took over the South African Communist Party, and in 1993 he was assassinated.
Like President Obama, Rudy Lozano, the other namesake of the award, was also a community organizer in Chicago. He was credited with bringing Latino voters to support the former mayor of Chicago, Harold Washington. Lozano was later shot to death in his home by Gregory Escobar for allegedly failing to pay off a $7,000 drug debt.
According to the Chicago Tribune, at a tribute event held at the University of Chicago for Lozano, “Richard Barnett, an aide on Washington’s mayoral campaign, said it was people like Lozano who built the foundation for Barack Obama’s historic run for the presidency.
The Democrat party is not the party of Truman, but the party of Marx.
