Hillary a Commie?


I doesn't take an article from The New York Sun to convince us Hillary has communist inspirations. Nor would it take anything the left throws at us to convince us otherwise.

We think she'd prefer show-trials of her opponents, the elimination of property rights, and control of the food supplies to control the masses if only she could suspend that pesky constitution. We also think that she has thought long and hard for most of her adult life in finding ways to get as close as possible to these goals as our next president.

In one of Rush Limbaugh's many comparisons to the proposed policies of Hillary (and Obama) to failed policies of Communists around the globe, he mentioned an Huffington Blog Post that led us to the Sun article, "Hillary Clinton's Radical Summer". The blog post asked why the Philadelphia debate explored Obama's past (and current) associations with questionable figures, but not Hillary's. Specifically, her work with Communists and Communist sympathizers. Good question!

It turns out her work with the law firm Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein suggests an active effort on Hillary's part as a law student to intern with the most leftist law firm in existence. It wasn't just the Black Panthers she was helping, although that alone is grounds for expulsion from American politics. The firm also worked on behalf of Huey Newton (of Free Huey! fame) that summer who was charged with killing an Oakland police officer. They succeeded in getting the case dismissed.

A thorough article, with names and interviews of firm partners and associates. One comment from the firm's co-founder and former member of the Communist Party USA, Robert Treuhaft, said it all:

By the time Mrs. Clinton arrived at the Treuhaft firm in 1971, its reputation as a defender of left-wingers and radicals was well established. Indeed, those at the firm assumed that reputation drew the Yale law student in.

"She did want to work for a left-wing movement law firm. Anyone who went to college or law school would have known our law firm was a Communist law firm," Treuhaft told Ms. Sheehy in 1999.

Comments are on. Tell us how we are wrong about Hillary.
