Communists, some brazenly, some secretly, are working in Democratic campaigns, holding Democratic Party management positions, and even operating for public office on the Democratic Party ballot line. The communists are also pushing their policies inside the Democratic Party, to the point that it’s virtually unimaginable to distinguish between the CPUSA and Democratic Party packages. Many comrades also work intently with influential congressmembers or U.S. senators.
The CPUSA supports China, Cuba, Venezuela, and the Russian Communist Party—all enemies of the United States. The CPUSA nonetheless advocates for the “overthrow of the capitalist class” on this nation, but the Democrats do completely zilch to maintain the communists out of their get together.
CPUSA infiltration of the Democratic Party is widespread—it effects every area the place the communists have a big presence.

Most can be horrified to know that communists are working brazenly and secretly at every degree of their cherished Democratic Party.
The Democratic Party knows the id of most of their communist members. They do nothing about it. They do more than flip a blind eye; they welcome the revolutionaries into their celebration.
