Communist hypocrisy

Arts & Culture Comments (1)

When people think about communism, they think of the Chinese and the Great Wall and their red flag.  Or they think of the old Soviet Union and the iron-fist of Stalin.  Some will even remember where communism came from and think of Marx and Lenin.  But no one thinks religion.

Welcome to the American version of the Communist Party.

When the Communist Party in America is so unpopular that it resorts to contradicting the very core of communism itself, you know something is wrong.

Here are some historical tidbits the Washington Post was kind enough to dig up.

Marx said, “Religion is the impotence of the human mind to deal with occurrences it cannot understand.”

And Lenin stated, “Religion is the opium of the people.”

So, in this ‘New Age,’ communism embraces people of religious denominations in an attempt to attract faith based people to the ranks of the Red.  It does strike me as odd that the party would choose this route instead of appealing to the many non-religious people of society (an increasing proportion) and essentially turning itself into a more liberal form of the second most extreme conservative viewpoint.  Communism itself is supposed to be a pseudoreligion of the people.

I suppose it won’t be long until the Fascist American Party decides to open accounts at the Bank of Israel.
