Was Anita Dunn’s ‘Maoism’ Prattle Still Just Said in Jest?

Obama’s “Manufacturing Czar” (who knew we had one of those), makes an interesting point by also invoking Mao as “the communications Czar” has – except, he pretty directly brings up and sums up Maoism, a variant on Marxism/Leninism that doesn’t even have a pretense of social concern to it. He notes that all power comes from force, which is an interesting obsession for an elected administration to have.

Call it a sort of international solidarity with the likes of the budding and practiced tyrants in Venezuela, Belarus, Iran, Cuba, Bolivia, and such. Maybe he’s reflecting on the fact that the left didn’t even have to say “make your last vote count”.
