Unions and Communist Activists All Too Happy With Obama-Dodd Financial Takeover Bill

Posted by iusbvision on May 12, 2010

This is also known as the Wall Street Special Favors and Unlimited Bailout Bill. If you ever wonder why Wall Street gives so much more to Democrats than Republicans, this is a good reason why.

From our friend Michael Van Der Galien at News-Reel:

“As thousands of union members converged on Wall Street last week, they were joined in solidarity by Kevin Keating,” writes Capitol Confidential for Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government. “Keating, a photographer on the 1976 movie ‘Harlan County, U.S.A’ and an unabashed communist joined his union brethren in demanding the Obama-Dodd financial takeover bill that would give unions greater ability to takeover the governing boards of companies and drain resources into their own coffers.”

Although Obama doesn’t strike me as a communist himself – I agree with Glenn Beck who calls him a “radical progressive” – it’s crystal clear that communists are suspiciously supportive of his plans; Keating is one of them.

It goes without saying that communists are happy because they realize that the president is “radically transforming” the country. And that should worry all those concerned with preserving democracy, political freedom and, yes, capitalism.
