Obama's Mao-Loving Interim Communications Director Anita Dunn

Glenn Beck's 15 October 2009 show put on a clip of Obama's Interim Communications Director Anita Dunn addressing high school students in June 2009.  In her speech, she said that the two people she turns to the most are her favorite philosophers Mao Tse Tung and Mother Teresa.  Now, I am not enamored of Mother Teresa and I believe her outlook is very deeply anti-life, but no one should be so bloodthirsty that they cannot see Mao Tse Tung as an unmitigated monster.  Mao killed 70 million people.  He killed between 16.5 and 30 million people in peacetime during the Great Leap Forward.  He said he was prepared to kill 300,000,000 Chinese for the sake of the Communist Revolution.

And he is Dunn's favorite philosopher.  She said she thinks of this man Mao all the time!  There was no indication that thinking of him all the time was a source of continuing nightmares.

Yet this woman is very close to Obama and has been for some time.  What is more, she has long been close to major figures in Washington in the Democrat Party.  She is a central figure herself in that party.  She started as an intern in the Carter White House working for White House Communications Director Gerald Rafshoon.  She then worked for Carter's Chief of Staff Hamilton Jordan.  She worked on John Glenn's (D-OH) campaign and then for him as Senator.  She was a top adviser for Senator Bill Bradley (D-NJ) and a chief strategist on his presidential campaign.  She worked on the staff of Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN) and the staff of Senator and former Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD).

In 2006, Senator Obama hired her for his The Hopefund, which was to prepare for his run for President.  She was to direct communications and strategy.  She helped launch Obama for America, his presidential campaign organization.  She recruited many of the staffers she knew from the staffs of Senator Bayh and former Senator Tom Daschle.  Her husband, Robert Bauer, has been Obama's general counsel since January 2007.  She trained Press Secretary Robert Gibbs during the transition period.  60 Minutes called her a top adviser in an interview.  Newsweek said she and her husband were a "power couple" in 2008.

Anita Dunn has spent many years working for Democrat Presidents and Senators, while thinking constantly about her favorite philosopher Mao Tse Tung.  She has helped these powerful politicians select their staff and suggested ideas to them.  She has been constantly close to and influencing those in power.  It is highly unlikely that she ever reminded them of their limited power under the Constitution.  Indeed, she was surely very inclined to help them find many rationales for ignoring the Constitution.  What is such a pitiful piece of paper if it would stand in the way of the Communist Revolution?  Mao would not let any such paper stop him in his tireless efforts to transform China.  Why would Anita Dunn allow the Constitution to stop her and Obama from transforming America?  Neither of them would do that.  Obama sought out Marxist professors in college and Dunn reads her Little Red Book.  Obama complains about the Constitution and I am sure Anita Dunn agrees with him.

Van Jones and Anita Dunn and the Suppression of Free Speech Czar at the FCC, Mark Lloyd, and Obama are all deep admirers of Marxism and violent socialist leaders.  There really is something seriously wrong here.  When our Senators and Representatives and Presidents do not have time to write or read the legislative bills they vote for or sign, who do you suppose did write them?  In many cases, it was the people that Anita Dunn recommended be hired and other similar people.  In all the time that Dunn was associated closely and given very responsible tasks by these Presidents and Senators of the Democrat Party, do you really think that they were unaware that Anita was thinking about Mao all the time?  Yet, that was OK with them.

Anita Dunn has had many opportunities to influence the wording of legislation and to make arguments in favor of legislation which would further her agenda, which appears to parallel that of Mao in many significant ways.  This is a very serious matter.  It is no wonder that such people are working so hard to eliminate the private health sector in America or to cripple our economy with drastic and absurd energy reductions.  This is Revolution!!!  The destruction of the American economy and the hardship that will bring upon the American people is no more a terrible price to pay for communism and socialism than was Mao's Great Leap Forward.  You have to break some eggs to make an omelet.  You have to be prepared to kill a few hundred million people.  After all, there are plenty of people.  The Environmentalists even tell us there are far too many people.

Obama is full of apologies for America abroad.  He believes our past is little but arrogant impositions upon the rest of the world.  I am sure Dunn agrees.  In fact, if someone is obsessed with Mao and present in offices full of state and military secrets, can we have any confidence at all that these secrets are not being shared with the likes of the Chinese leadership, the Castros, and the Hugo Chavez's of the Marxist world?  It is a farce of a tragic nature that we have put such power hungry and bloodthirsty people into the bowels of the great American federal government.  Some of you may think I reach too far to say bloodthirsty, but no one can be an admirer of Mao who is not bloodthirsty.  Indeed, anyone who understands Marxism and where it must lead men must be bloodthirsty.  If they do not understand Marxism, then they are too naive to be present in the halls of the American government.  We must choose our leaders and their advisers better.
