Here’s a remarkable headline:
Lisa Bergmann, who introduced Blumenthal said:
“If you are not already part of the Communist Party, we invite you to participate and contribute and join… I’m a member of the Communist Party, I love it. I think it’s an amazing organization.”
Blumenthal was effusive: “Thank you for your help and support over many, many years… I am excited and proud to join you.”
This is incredible to us. We would say it is the equivalent to accepting an award from the Ku Klux Klan – but much worse. According to the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, more than 100 million people worldwide have been murdered by communist governments.
