The American Communists, 2010
Apparently THEY think that they're still alive
Things to watch for in this revealing little video:
1) Watch them sing "We Shall not Be Moved." I heard them -- the comrades of the CPUSA -- sing the very same song in 1940, but the words were "Browder is our leader, we shall not be moved..." Today, Browder is no longer mentioned by these folks. He has been air-brushed out of their history.
2) Watch the demeanor of the comrades when they sing the Internationale. Those are still the holy words to them.
3) And finally, where are all those starry-eyed, good looking young people of yore ? Not in this crowd.
Do you have it in your heart to spare them a little pity ? (I don't, actually)
