And from the inner circle: Maoist Anita Dunn

While I don’t watch Glenn Beck, it is monstrous to hear a person associated with the White House say that Mao Zedong is “one of her favorite political philosophers.” If you read The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression you would understand that regarding Mao as a “political philosopher” is reaching a depth of depravity beyond understanding: some 65 million people died during Mao’s regime.

This woman is now at a top job in the White House. Roger Kimball writes,

Anita Dunn is not just an Obama hanger-on. She is part of his inner circle, one of his top aides, along with David Axelrod, Rahm Emmanuel, and Robert Gibbs. What does it mean that someone in that position proffers one of the greatest monsters the world has ever seen for emulation?

Good question.

But wait
Now Dunn says she didn’t say it, she was just quoting Lee Atwater.

Yeah, right.

    I’m sure Anita could find a half dozen reasons to call Joe Stalin one of her favorite political philosophers, or Adolf Hitler on the importance of a strong central government.

    This woman is simply batsh*t, a freak holdover from the sixties, and an embarrassment to every Democrat with a triple-digit IQ. Dumber than a bucket of hair.

    Glenn’s quote which I heard on the radio was pure and simple, her two heroes are Mother Teresa and Mao Tse Tung. No qualifiers, nothing about Atwater, and she explained in detail why SHE thought Mao was so cool, because he told his Politburo colleagues: “my way or the highway” in succinct Chinese.

    Heavy dudette, Anita, grooovy….

    I believe we just may be reaching the waypoint after which every story about Obama will no longer have to include the phrase, “if, of course, that’s what the president really thinks.”

    OK. Why?

    So she’s the ideological twin to about 20-30% or more of all registered+voting Democrats?

    (Note: I distinctify & exclude from that those who register Dem in the South, where there are local political reasons for doing so, for example)

    One that Robert Kimball left out is Valerie Jarrett. She is part of the Chicago group Obama brought to the White House. She has a strong voice about what goes on.

  7. Dymphna Says:

    John has a very good point. Ol’ Valerie told Obama to go to Copenhagen.

    I haven’t opened the video here; my connection is wonky in the rain. However, I presume it’s the same one we put up.

    Watch it closely. I noticed something but didn’t say anything. A blogger in Canada emailed me about this, and finally a commenter said something so I responded to it. In that speech, her tongue keeps flicking in and out. This gesture is partly hidden by a bar (iirc, it was a bar) so it’s not immediately noticeable.

    This gesture can sometimes be seen in people on lithium (used by those with bipolar disorder). I hope the reason is simply medication. I’d hate to think she was actually a serpent testing the temperature with her tongue.

    That is quite strange in and of itself.

    Now she’s lining up with all those lame appointees Obama has in charge. Her latest excuse is that we’re too dumb to understand irony:

    As for Beck’s criticism: “The use of the phrase ‘favorite political philosophers’ was intended as irony, but clearly the effort fell flat — at least with a certain Fox commentator whose sense of irony may be missing.

    Anita Dung is Obama’s Joseph Goebbels. How dare these Marxist
    traitors dismantle our Constitution, and our First Amendment!!!

  9. Rainey Says:

    I swear she must have been high on cocaine! Just watch that mouth and tongue during that speech go outta control. I have seen plenty of people in my life spun out on cocaine and that is exactly what they do.
    Great, a coked out marxist looney making speeches to our young kids, I would yank my kid outta school so fast………….if I had one. I am grateful I don’t but parents need to pay attention to what the kids are being taught these days.
