How in the hell did America get to the point where so many Communists are in charge of large sectors of our Federal Government? I know a large portion of us were asleep for along time, thinking that those who were elected to public office, loved America as we did, we were so very, very wrong. When the left uses McCarthy to attack the right, just know that McCarthy was right and he was doing the right thing in trying to rid this Country of Communism. They went underground and took over the Democrat Party, but they are out there in your face and unapologetic about being Communists/Marxists/Statists and by God, we need to defeat them. Obama’s Faculty Lounge Administration Love Them Some Murderous Mao:
Not surprisingly, Bloom denied any affection for chairman Mao, saying he only made the comment in jest.
That brings us to this month. In an article last week, Politico ended its story on Bloom’s resignation with a curious quote. In reference to Obama attempting to forge a partnership between manufacturers in several states and academia — in order to revitalize American factories — Bloom apparently saw something Mao-esque in the way government was attempting to support private business, stating the approach would, “let the great thousand flowers bloom in America.”
If that sounds familiar, it should.
While the correct wording is in fact a “hundred flowers,” there is no question as to where the phrase derives from. Back in the summer of 1957 in the People’s Republic of China, a movement emerged called the “Hundred Flowers Campaign,” during which the Communist Party allegedly encouraged those with diverse view points to step forward and share their ideas with a view to “letting a hundred flowers blossom and a hundred schools of thought contend is the policy for promoting progress in the arts and the sciences and a flourishing socialist culture in our land.”
Of course it was all a ploy, implemented to out as many free-thinkers and dissidents as the regime possibly could. Not surprisingly, Mao punished many who participated in the Hundred Flowers Movement until finally reimposing his oppressive policy on public expression.
So, if his past Mao comments were a joke, then why would Bloom make yet another reference to Mao, this time with regard to American manufacturing? Is he implying Mao’s Hundred Flowers campaign actually born out of good intentions? Did Bloom mean to say that the Obama administration was then letting “a hundred schools of thought contend” in a “policy for promoting progress” in American factories? That very well could be the case. Or perhaps, Bloom made the comment as a dig to all of those, like Beck and Mack, who have called the former union worker out on his ideological leanings.
So many questions.
Either way, it remains unclear where Bloom may be headed next. A good guess? Perhaps he will take a consulting job at a manufacturing plant in China.
These people are America’s worst nightmare and Communist China’s dream, we need to make sure they are all sent home in January 2013.
