Another one of President Obama's kooky appointees has had to be thrown under the bus. Anita Dunn, the White House communications director (who led Obama's war on Fox News), said that Mao Tse-tung was one of her two favorite "political philosophers" whom she "turn[s] to most" for answers to important questions. In fact, Mao Tse-tung was a ruthless Chinese Communist killer, certainly not a philosopher. He probably holds the record for ordering the mass murder of more people (50 to 100 million) than anyone else in history. Anita Dunn tried to claim that her statement was a joke, but anyone can see her actual statement on YouTube and see that she spoke in deadly earnest. She was part of Obama's inner circle and a senior media adviser during Obama's presidential campaign. Anita Dunn's husband, Bob Bauer, who is an expert on campaign finance and fundraising, is Obama's personal lawyer. He is now White House Counsel in charge of clearing Obama's new appointees.
Obama's Green Jobs Czar, Mr. Van Jones, had to exit in disgrace after he admitted that he really "was a Communist." We can thank Glenn Beck for exposing him.
Obama's nominee for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Chai Feldblum, signed a 2006 manifesto endorsing polygamous households. This lengthy document, called "Beyond Same-Sex Marriage," argues that traditional marriage should not be "privileged above all others."
Obama's Diversity Czar has spoken publicly of getting white media executives to "step down" in favor of minorities. Obama's first appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court is a woman who repeatedly said that a "Latina woman" would make better judicial decisions than "a white male."
What a collection of peculiar people President Obama has appointed! Tomorrow I'll tell you about more of Obama's strange appointments.
