Communist Party USA Spokesman Gets Warm Greeting at Occupy Chicago: So, the 99% are Communists too?


Yes, apparently!   We’ve been saying all along that this movement has been openly embracing Communist ideology, but either omitting the source, or calling it by a different name.  On Saturday night, a spokesman from the Communist Party USA, John Bachtell, was warly greeted by the Occupy Chicago crowd.  Here is the video, via Rebelpundit…

So, the Communists, who are the representatives of the most murderous political ideology in human history, are applauded at an “occupy” event, and are not driven away, rebuked, rejected, or even slightly frowned upon.

What does that say about the Occupy Wall Street Movement?  In case you have any questions, here are the main accomplishments of Communism…

Let’s take a brief history lesson…

Rank Country


People’s Republic of China
Body Count: 73,237,000

1949-Present (57+ years and counting)R.J. Rummel originally estimated China’s body count between between the years of 1949-1987 to be 35,236,000 (Rummel 1994). This excluded 38,000,000 million that died of famine during the Great Leap Forward. After the release of Mao: The Unknown Story, Rummel became convinced that the Chinese government was directly responsible for the famine, thus increasing his original estimate by 38,000,000 (Rummel 2005). 1,000 was added for Tienanmen Square in 1989 (Courtois 1999).


USSR Flag Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
Body Count: 58,627,000

This is what the Occupy Chicago crowd was applauding.

  • Of course they welcomed the communists. The left has always had the attitude that just because it didn’t work somewhere else or resulted in tyranny doesn’t mean that when they do it the results would be the same. The incredible arrogance of progressives is truly on display when it comes to their policies. They genuinely believe that they are smarter and better than those who tried it and failed. Obviously, they will get it right despite the fact that it really cannot work.

  • From the very onset of this movement I have been worried becuase I heard the communist dogma that these people were spouting. I had thought that many of these people didn’t even realize that what they were calling for was a communist revolution but when I see videos like this I realize that many of them do understand what they are calling for and that makes it even more bothersome.

    And people say theyre scared of the Militia movement! If this 99%to group spark a communist revolution and the government backs them then we need the militias! At least the militia movement is for freedom, the Constitution and for the people. We must stop this 99% group from destroying our republic.
