Communists Praise Obama., Hillary
Is Communism Dead?
Communist Party Praises Obama Administration and Hillary
The CPUSA Statement to the 17th International Meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties says the following:
- We consider the defeat of the far-right Republicans an essential first step in the struggle for a people’s agenda and ultimately socialism.
- The importance of the 2016 U.S. presidential elections cannot be exaggerated.
- …in our two-party system are a range of Democratic Party candidates who take a generally pro-worker, pro-women’s rights, pro-immigrant, anti-racist, pro-environment, less militarist stance. They include Hillary Clinton, the frontrunner, a defender of capitalism who believes it must be curbed and regulated to be more people-friendly. She has stood up to vicious attacks from the ultra-right. If elected, she would break new ground as the first woman president of the U.S.
- The Obama administration made a bold and historic move in opening up relations with socialist Cuba – ending 50 years of a failed and inhumane Cold War policy.
- The historic meeting between President Obama and the Communist Party of Vietnam general secretary Nguyen Phu Trong at the Oval Office could very well be seen as a milestone in US-Vietnamese relations.
- The Obama administration’s landmark nuclear agreement with Iran will ease tensions and increase opportunities for resolving a number of dangerous crises in the greater Middle East and beyond.
