Skip to comments.Kerry Urges Congress to Honor Communist
Posted on 03/02/2005 6:12:35 AM PST by bigsky
Why has John Kerry sponsored a Senate resolution honoring a Stalinist who championed racial separatism?
The Soviet Union awarded W.E.B. Du Bois the Lenin Peace Prize. Maoist China staged a national holiday in his honor in 1959. Now, for reasons unexplained, the Democratic Party's 2004 presidential nominee seeks to honor Du Bois too.
Kerry's efforts to honor Du Bois have been joined by fellow Bay State Democrat Ed Markey, who, along with more than three-dozen colleagues, has advanced a similar resolution in the House of Representatives. Both resolutions await floor votes. In addition to praising Du Bois as a "defender of freedom," Markey's February 17 proclamation bizarrely maintains that Du Bois--a longtime Socialist who officially joined the Communist Party late in life--played "an intricate role in the development of the entrepreneurial spirit" and "capitalism" among African-Americans.

Huh? Kerry is openly supporting the very kind of person we always knew he admired. Okay.
what's kerry doing in washington ? and at the capitol no less
John Kerry is honored in Viet Nam's war museum, so he's just reciprocating with the commies in the spirit of friendship and cooperation.
Getting some face time for the 2008 election.
Sounds like Kerry and Markey are competing for the first annual Ed Asner "Stalinist-Trotskyite Supporters of the Year" award.
"the Lenin Peace Prize"
i understand the prize for this is 1,000,000 rubles!!!!
No surprise here. Kerry is just honoring one of his own kind.

And an all expense-paid rail trip via closed unheated boxcar to the gulag of your choice in the Russian Far East..
Wait..... never mind.
Damn. Kerry always sided with Communists/socialists/marxists, but I didn't think he actually supported them.
'John Kerry's Foreign Policy'
.....and theres enough spineless, whimpering, intimidated Pubbies out there that it will probably pass.
This idiot Kerry, could have been our President - what a horrible thought!
It's also a ploy to make people of certain color and races believe that their leaders follow the left and are only leaders because they do so. It's a lie of course.
JOHN KERRY was on the side of our Communist Terrorist Enemy,
Communist North Vietnam dictator HO CHI MINH,
...and against us American Soldiers who were fighting to keep the free people of South Vietnam free during the Vietnam War
