Democratics and Communists band together

Below are excerpts from this article by Kerry Picket at the Washington Times :

Not to be outdone by the likes of Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, who claimed there is "horrible repression" of the "Occupy Wall Street" protesters or by an Iranian commander who called the demonstrations an "American Spring," Communist Party USA wants in on the "Occupy" protest action.

According to their website, a teleconference call this Tuesday is scheduled for a discussion regarding their organization's "solidarity" with the OWS demonstrators:

Southern California Party leader Arturo Cambron will share how the CPUSA and Young Communist League (YCL) are working in “Occupy Los Angeles.” 

This movement, also known as the “99% movement,” is being hailed across the country. 

Movements and organizations are reaching out in solidarity. The AFL-CIO is opening union halls and offering other material assistance. Ordinary people are donating food, money and materials.

A big challenge for the CPUSA and left, progressive movements is to link these demonstrations with the labor led all-people’s coalition and help deepen understanding that the path to progress must be through electoral and political action including defeating Republican Tea Party reaction in 2012. 

Of primary importance is linking it with the burgeoning fight for jobs and especially passage of the American Jobs Act. 

We can also play a role in offering more advanced programmatic ideas like nationalizing the banks and socialism. 

To have a positive impact, the CPUSA and YCL must be a part of the “Occupy” movement, participating at every level and building greater local support for the actions among labor and progressive forces.

The Occupy Wall Street demonstrations have been supported by labor unions and Democratic lawmakers and their party leaders on Capitol Hill.  “God bless them for their spontaneity,” said Nancy Pelosi of the OWS protesters to reporters. She then added, “It’s young, it’s spontaneous, it’s focused and it’s going to be effective.”

Yes, is anyone shocked that the "Democratics" and the communists support the same exact thing?  What a coinkydink.
