Communists Back Obama's 2nd Amendment Grab

Posted by Brian

Surprise! Surprise! The communist rag, "Peoples World", a mouthpiece for the Communist Party USA, has come out in support of Democrats and the Obama Administration's assault on the Second Amendment.

Calling the 2nd Amendment "obsolete", the author, Rick Nagin, says there is "no basis for claiming this amendment was intended to permit unregulated personal acquisition of firearms, including amassing military weapons and private arsenals for "protection" from the government. No government, especially one that is new and fragile, has ever authorized citizens to arm themselves against it".  Well, the Founders would be surprised to hear this, because that is exactly what they authorized!  Having just been through a war against a tyrannical government, and where many had personally, or were a mere one or two generations removed from family members who had fled tyrannical governments, they were well aware of the importance of a country's people to have the means to stand up to these government monarchs and despots.  Even those"new and fragile" governments.
In a further rewriting of history, and a complete lack of context of the time of the founders, the author posits that the 2nd Amendment was adopted to "muster militia to put down domestic uprisings, including slave revolts, to repulse any attempted return by the British and to deal with clashes with Native Americans".  (Gee! What Hollywood crackpot have we heard this from recently?) This is just as laughable as the modern statist's argument of the 2nd Amendment being enacted to protect hunters rights, thus allowing idiots like NY Governor Andrew Cuomo to claim "you don't need 10 bullets to kill a deer".  This is the lie of the statist and the communist.  Present spurious arguments, further dumbing-down low information voters on our history, the Founders, and the Constitution, leading them to willingly accept, and vote for, their own loss of liberty.
That the communists are coming out in support of this is not surprising. It's what they do. What is disturbing is the total media blackout on the continued support for Barack Obama from the Communist Party USA.  I am convinced that the vast majority of American's have absolutely no idea - ZERO! - that Obama has been receiving the endorsement of the communists for years".
Obama's communist ties go back to his youth.  Throughout his life he has surrounded himself with known communists. From Frank Marshall Davis (his mentor), to the communists he actively sought out in college, to SEIU's Andy Stern stating, "Workers of the world unite is not just a slogan anymore".  Connecticut AFL-CIO President was presented an award from CPUSA in 2010, proudly claiming "Anyone who stands with me for workers' rights, I stand with them,". Notably, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka was the most frequent guest to the White House in Obama's first term, and has boldly stated that he "talks to someone from the White House every day".
The question that I have is this: Why are so few of the American people so unconcerned that the Obama Administration is so in lockstep with the communists? So much so, that their support for Obama and his policies has been nearly unanimous throughout his first term and even earlier.  
Even more disturbing is the media's sycophantic praise of Obama, their unwillingness to report on anything of substance which might be critical of Obama, thus keeping Americans ignorant of the vast majority of Obama's disastrous agenda.
