UPDATE! I reported last week about Connecticut Democrat Sen. Richard “Stolen Valor” Blumenthal attending an awards dinner and praising his hosts, who happened to be an affiliate of the Communist Party USA. After this resulted in understandable criticism from the right (and the middle – you don’t have to be very far right to disapprove of COMMUNISM), Blumenthal claimed he thought that was just a labor event; that he gets invited to a lot of things; and heavens, he’s a proud capitalist and had no idea he was amidst Communists!

The media did what they always do: covered up the original story that reflected badly on a Democrat, and when it came out anyway despite their suppression efforts, they rushed to defend Blumenthal, echo his excuses, and try to turn the “real” story into how “Republicans pounced” to try to twist this into a negative political issue for their opponents. Because without the Republicans complaining, nobody would’ve batted an eye at a powerful Democratic Senator joining in a communist event.

Well, here’s the latest from the Media Research Center: Blumenthal claimed he was unaware that he was at a communist event (after all, there was food.) But here is what one awards presenter told the crowd over the microphone:

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2021/12/19/lib-tv-news-ignores-sen-blumenthal-attending-communist-party

“There's more and more people talking now about socialism in this country as it becomes more and more clear that capitalism is not going to work for our future.”

And just to make it crystal clear that they didn’t mean AOC-style “Democratic socialism” (which is, like, TOTALLY different from socialism-socialism), the emcee said this:

“We invite you to join the Communist Party in this epic time as we make good trouble to uproot systemic racism, retool the war economy, tax the rich, address climate change, secure voting rights and create a new socialist system that puts people, peace and planet before profits,”

Maybe everyone was slurping their borscht so loudly that Blumenthal didn’t hear the “Communist Party” part and just assumed from that list of euphemisms that they were fellow modern Democrats. Or he could try claiming that he suffered hearing loss from all the guns going off around him during his time on the battlefield in Vietnam. At least, that would be a lie he’s used to telling.

    Not a proud capitalist but a lying B/S artiste who is sways in the wind. Probably swings both ways too. The "man" (I use the term loosely) is disgrace and don't understand how he sways so many stupid people, but stupid is the "required" description, isn't it???

    These corrupt criminal clowns can say what they want without fear of accountability or investigation.

    Republicans should be wary of OVERCONFIDENCE concerning victory in 2022. The instant reversal by Mayor London Breese is one example of how policy may change, and the old policies be forgotten by November 2022.

    This man is a fraud and I don't believe or trust anything he says.
