A reader sends along news that Governor Dannel Malloy has appointed a communist to the post of Commissar of Labor. Sharon Palmer, currently head of the American Federation of Teachers (do tell – Ed), attended and was honored at the 2004 celebration of the founding of the Communist Party USA. She gave a stirring speech and then returned to foment revolution among the mush-heads under her charge.
Here’s a thought experiment: would you be comfortable with a governor who recently attended a celebration of the Communist Party’s founding? Who accepted an honorary award from the group? And what if, instead of attending such a convention himself, he appointed to a top position in his administration someone who did?
And if that doesn’t give you pause, try substituting the Nazi Party for the Communists – same philosophy of state ownership of individuals yet for some odd reason, the Nazi’s engender more loathing among many people. Should Malloy appoint a member of the Nazi party to be his Labor Reichmeister?
