Lets Objectively look into this question. What evidence is there that the CPUSA, Communist Party USA, took over the Democratic Party in 1988?
If the Communist Party had effectively infiltrated and gained control of the Democratic Party then one would expect them to stop running their own candidates for President and endorse/co-nominate the Democrat nominees for President. There is no way that happened, right? Lets look just in case.

Shockingly since 1988 the CPUSA has stopped running their own candidates and have 100% of the time nominated the Democrat candidates as their candidates. So we have to take this question seriously.
Now the burden of proof is to disprove that the Democratic Party is really the Communist Party, to disprove it has the same policies as the CPUSA. How could we disprove that?
Have the Communists/Marxists/Socialists ever admitted that Democrats are a front group for them, that the Democrats have adopted their policies so there is no need to run their own candidates? Actually multiple Marxist Parties have.
Norman Thomas, the six-time Socialist Party candidate for U.S. President, said the following in a 1944 speech:
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism,’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened…. I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”
How about now, not 1944? What does the current Communist Party USA have to say?
Sam Webb, leader of the Communist Party USA(CPUSA) came out to support President Barack Obama’s re-election in 2012. Webb said that with Obama’s victory “that is the ground on which people fight going forward” with “the emergence of a multi-racial, male-female, working-class-based electoral coalition that has the potential to transform America in the years and decades ahead.”
They do not even seem to be trying to hide that the Democratic Party is a tool of the Communist Party USA and Marxists in general.
Have any foreign Communists admitted the Democratic Party is a tool of their objectives?
Russian propaganda machine RIA Novosti stated that Dimitry Peskov, press secretary for Russian President Vladimir Putin, said: “For Russia, Obama’s victory will be beneficial.”
Lieutenant General Ion Mihai Pacepa, defected former top aide to the Romanian Communist regime, said that an alliance between the Democratic Party and the Communist Party is underway in America. Pacepa explained: “The Democratic Party has become dangerously infected with the Marxism virus. I recognize the symptoms because I once lived through them, and I believe it is my obligation as an American citizen to help the conservative movement to prevent any further spread of Marxism in my adopted country.”
So Marxists say the Democratic Party is a Marxist party, what do Democrats say?
Today: According to the Iowa secretary of state’s website, which monitors the votes in real-time, more than 52 percent of Democrats who have cast a vote in the straw poll say they support Sanders. Just over 41 percent said they support Clinton.
In New Hampshire polls show Bernie Sanders in the lead there, so for the first two primaries Sanders is the front-runner for Democratic Party.
Sanders is … an admitted Marxist. He is officially listed as a Socialist US Senator, not Democratic. He just caucuses with Democrats in the Senate because, well the topic of this article answers that question. He has run several times for office as a candidate of 3rd party Marxist parties and was an official member of the Young People’s Socialist League. He was also a member of multiple known Communist Party USA organizations. Sanders is simply a lifelong publicly admitted Marxist. As mayor of Burlington Vermont he hung the Soviet Flag in his office while those mass murdering Soviet Marxists were still on power, before the Berlin Wall fell.
Since a publicly admitted Marxist is now #1 for President in latest Democrat polls for Iowa and New Hampshire, that answers the question as to what Democrats have to say about being Marxists, whether or not they want to admit it in public, yet.
In 2015 indeed it is hard any evidence that the Democratic Party is NOT America’s dominate Marxist party.
Lets just try one one time and go to the CPUSA website to their “Take Action” page of their issues:
Help support President Obama’s effort to make community college education free of charge. The time is now for real change!!
Sign the petition to urge President Obama to use executive action to take the Keystoen XL pipleine off the table.
Help defend American democracy by supporting S.J. Res. 19, a constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court rulings of Citizens United.
Every day, Black residents of Ferguson and Missouri face possible abuse and death at the hands of an officer due to discriminatory policing tactics based on dehumanizing racial stereotypes.
The climate change struggle has become a priority.
An appeals court just dealt the latest blow to the open Internet. This ruling means there is no one who can protect us from ISPs that block or discriminate against websites, applications or services. But there’s hope: FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler can correct the agency’s past mistakes and truly protect our nation’s communications infrastructure.
100% of their top issues are to support Obama and Democratic Party, 8 for 8.
Will they change their name to Marxicrats?
