A cheerleader for the Russian Revolution in the early 20th century and a leader in the labor movement during the Depression; hounded during the McCarthy era and orphaned after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Communist Party USA on Friday returned to Chicago, the city of its birth.

Given the movement's history, some might wonder why anyone would want to be a communist.

But the more than 300 adherents who came to celebrate the party's 95th anniversary at the University of Illinois at Chicago see it the other way around: Who wouldn't want to be a member?

Among them was Susan Gosman, who on the opening day of the convention stood in front of sign-in sheets divided by decades. Delegates were asked to mark the one during which they were radicalized. "For me, it would be 1944," she said. "The year I was born."

POLL: Obama and the Democrats only enforce the laws that they agree with: Should any public official that does not uphold the laws of the land be removed from office and arrested?

Gosman is a "red-diaper baby," as a communist born to communist parents is known. Her father took part in the 1930s sit-down strikes in automobile plants that won autoworkers a union. But it also got him in trouble during the 1950s. That meant tough times when she was growing up, and her parents cautioned her about the perils of following their political path.

Yet a year and a half ago, she joined the Communist Party.

"I finally realized, I didn't believe in the other side," said Gosman, a retired employee of the Los Angeles school system.

The Chicago convention will feature three days of speeches, panel discussions and workshops. One session will be devoted to catching up with an online era.

Communists, like other radicals, traditionally recruit by hawking the party's paper on street corners. But financial constraints have forced the People's World to abandon its print edition. So one question up for discussion is how can peoplesworld.org put the party in touch with low-paid workers, environmentalists and advocates for social justice?

I thought Chicago was the world headquarters for the communist party.

No kidding, Mr. Elliott.......where else would they have this in the USA but Chicago??? And surely ovomit was in attendance.

Commies, commies, commies, what is the world coming to? Muslims.

I used to end my briefings for military operations with "KILL A COMMIE FOR MOMMIE."

That can still be said today, even more so!

Nothing really wrong with these guys and their beliefs...but it is that "tyranny, poverty and death" part that I have a problem with. Chicago welcomed these people with open arms I think.

One thing about Obama's team...they do know their history and they are very fond of color schemes. Thanks for posting the article and pic to remind us. 

Nothing wrong with the commies and their beliefs? Watch this investigative documentary and you will be changing your tune very quickly. 90% in the democrat party are infiltrated communists.

AND THEY ARE EVIL, JUST AS DESCRIBED.

I wish some people would throw bombs into the commie crowd...no more communist! It's easier to delete them when they're all in one place.

Pass this and end that entire process. . The States will have the power again.

The 16th and 17th Amendments should be null and voided. But the 14th, no.

ALERT ALERT

 REVEALED: Here’s What Dirty Cop Mueller And His Team
Of Liberal Hack Lawyers Are Costing Taxpayers Per Month

The Mueller ‘Russia’ investigation was built on a foundation of lies and cost taxpayers $6.7 million within the first 5 months!
 
Thanks to AG Sessions for recusing himself, corrupt swamp creature Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to target Trump and his team in what is the greatest witch hunt in US political history.

To add insult to injury, Americans are paying over $1 million a month, watching in horror as an innocent president is investigated yet the real criminals–Hillary, Lynch, Obama, Holder, Rice, McCabe, Comey et al walk freely.

The Justice Department released a report Tuesday detailing the cost of Mueller’s investigation from May 17th 2017-Sept 30th 2017.

In four and a half months, American tax payers have paid MILLIONS of dollars for Mueller’s hacks.

Expenses include:

Direct and Reimbursed Expenditures (note 1)
Personnel Compensation and Benefits (note 2) $1,709,597
Travel and Transportation of Persons (note 3) 223,643
Transportation of Things 156
Rent, Communications, and Utilities 362,550
Contractual Services (note 4) 157,339
Supplies and Materials 26,442
Acquisition of Equipment (note 5) 733,969
Total SCO Expenditures (note 6) $ 3,213,695

Mueller’s witch hunt also cost the Justice Department about $3.5 million on work attributable to the ‘Russia’ investigation, according to the DOJ report, totaling $6.7 million!

Americans are mad as hell!

We are paying millions of dollars to pay Trump-hating lawyers who are hell bent on taking down a president who won the election in an electoral landslide all because of a Hillary-funded garbage dossier!

One of the FBI agents was recently removed for sending anti-Trump text messages to an FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair with.

Another Mueller hack was just revealed to have praised Sally Yates for defying Trump’s travel ban.

In an email obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, Andrew Weissmann, special counsel Robert Mueller’s right hand man, praised then-acting attorney general Sally Yates for standing up to President Trump’s travel ban order.

We have been reporting on Mueller’s liberal dream team for months.
So have numerous other media outlets.

We reported in August that the entire team was Trump haters. Here is a summary of the Mueller team –
