Flyer: Bill Would Let Communists Teach

LONG BEACH, Calif., (UPI) — A Republican congressional candidate in California says his Democratic opponent authored a bill that would have allowed communists to teach at state colleges.

Gary DeLong made the accusations in a Vietnamese-language flyer mailed in the 47th Congressional District, which has a large population of Vietnamese-Americans who endured communism in their native country, The Orange County Register reported Tuesday.

His opponent, Alan Lowenthal, authored a bill while serving in the California Legislature in 2008 that removed a provision in the state Education Code making membership in the Communist Party by community college employees a firing offense.

The bill was approved by the Legislature but vetoed by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In his flyer, DeLong charged the bill would have allowed communists to teach without a formal check of their family history.

Lowenthal, who has strong name recognition and an 11 percent advantage in party voter registration, responded that his bill retained a ban on openly advocating communism in school.

    The issue that is not made is that the Communist Party each year comes out and says it is militarized to destroy Democracy and free markets for a foreign made style of leadership that was created to destroy cultures and religion along with individualism.
    Along with that the Communist Party from the German Socialist year’s during the 1920′s as per economic warfare books and SEC history where used to destroy our agriculture and our stock market. So that the Communist German’s which they where called before they became the Nazi party. Could try and create a one world mono fascist rule. Where the rich religion of that day which was Jewish where a threat to the mono party rule of socialized communism. Then we had the Soviet’s try and do the same thing and today we have teh Communist Chinese doing the exact same thing. While the Communist Party comes out and states each year it is hear to help the Communist international party take over the world and Destroy Democracy. The idea that just saying a Communist might teach is wrong. It is why. For example, we would not allow an Al Queada political party member to teach in our school as they threaten to destroy our Democracy and free market and implement sharia law. While Al Queada international political members use force to try and do that in weaker Democracy countries. Just like the Communist party does. Labor Unions are not Communist and if you have read Marxism or history of Labor Unions fighting Marxism during the cold war and how the Soviet Union was won for Democracy through labor Unions. Labor Unions are for individual wealth and quality of life.
    But today we see that the Communist Chinese are controlling the major labor union service issues. I can go on for years about how the Communist Party economically is the exact same holy war mentality for their mono party rule as Al Queada does and have:

    Along with that the California Democratic party voted to allow the Communist party who each year after the committee comes out and affirms its war against Democracy through economics to be placed in government economic seats.

    You just say Communist and teaching and folks think FNORD’s. As per the Soviet’s great propaganda war to make the Democrats and Republicans who wished for liberty for all and not just for the Communist Party and its powerful elite. To look like some crazy wacko rightist. When the majority of folks during the cold war like Larry MacDonald where very leftist and against the fascist communist party. As Democrats believe in allowing a equated opposition of culture cause they know they are not right 100% of the time just like us Republicans do.
    So explanations are needed to demistify the old Communist FNORD programs.

    As a matter of fact Long Beach was the heart and beat of one of the worlds best revolutions ever. It was the Anti Communist Revolution lead by professor Swartz. Which stopped the mono fascist imperialist we rule all through one party system Russians. That owned countries outright through political and military control. The US goes in and helps create Democracy. So even if we had good contacts with one side. The opposing side can represent the opposing culture. We do not go in and say we are the party of Communist you must be communist and be ruled by the leaders we place in. No Libya Democracy. Egypt Democracy, Iraq Democracy. Having a Communist teach public colleges is like having an Al Queada teaching as today our biggest enemies are still fascist system that do not want to be Democracy.

    As a matter of fact if you have a child or friend of mate that has died since the 1900′s in this country. They have died fighting communism and mono party rule. So allowing a Communist in is literally like peeing on our soldiers and our beliefs.

    if you would like to debate have more education or want me to show up to a town hall to converse on the issue. contact me at and I will show up in 4 4 gear ready to explain how Democracy militans like myself and the Republic are and how the Democrats used to be towards mono fascist parties like the Communist and we are today towards the Al Queada’s.
