The Marxist/Socialist Genealogy of Patrick Gaspard

Dad29 blog says Patrick Gaspard is a powerful man.  And he has a very sketch set of friends, mentors, acquaintances, collaborators, and running dog pals.

In June 2009 Patrick Gaspard, a Brooklyn-based, 41-year-old Democratic operative, became White House director of the Office of Political Affairs -- And he has a lot in common with Obama.

Gaspard has ties to the groups behind ACORN --the groups that helped Obama during his Chicago days -- Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party offshoot, the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism.

Like Obama, Patrick Gaspard wrote poetry.  Like Obama , Patrick Gaspard grew up admiring third world leftists and revolutionaries.  He reportedly idolized Aime Cesaire, a radical poet/politician from the French colony of Martinique.

He was also behind the civil unrest following the police shooting of Amadou Diallo in New York City -- and was asked to stir up trouble by (ta-da!) SEIU -- which had been a target of HUAC in 1948.

The Communist influence in SEIU 1199 never diminished, until ...

...the Communist Party split in 1991, several Local 1199 officials joined the dissenting faction and took many comrades into the breakaway Committees of CorrespondenceFriedman, Pizarro, Jacques and Garcia all went on to support Committees of Correspondence.  Pizarro also went on to help found the radical New Party, which Obama joined in Chicago in 1995

By 2001 Gaspard was a leading activist in the New Party offshoot, the New York Working Families Party -- a DSA-ACORN-Committees of Correspondence-Communist Party collaboration.

In 2003, Patrick Gaspard was granted leave from Local 1199 to work as the deputy national field director for the presidential campaign of Howard Dean.  After Dean was eliminated from the race, Gaspard became national field director for George Soros’ political action group America Coming Together (ACT).

New Zeal blogsite has a LOT more information for purposes of understanding the hard-left Obama collection of "czars" -- and Obama's seemingly unhinged foreign and domestic policies.

ACORN Paycheck Aside, Patrick Gaspard Is A Radical

Several days ago, Capital Research Center’s Matthew Vadum published research here indicating an ACORN alumni in the White House (other than the president): Political Director Patrick Gaspard.  As I did three weeks prior at, Matthew used a Wade Rathke blog as the source, which Rathke, the founder of ACORN,  immediately changed after Vadum’s report, citing "memory tricks."  Politico led the way in poo-pooing the connection once Rathke played cover-up.


Rathke said it not only on his blog, but also at a book signing in New Orleans, which was recently covered in the Fox News Special: The Truth About ACORN.”  While we attended that book signing and were not able to get that portion on tape, the Fox documentary crew did.  Sadly, the remarks apparently ended up on the cutting room floor.


The fact is, Patrick Gaspard, Obama’s “Glue Man,” is more important than Van Jones ever hoped of being.  The fact is, one of the most critical and influential jobs in a White House, the Director of Political Affairs, is occupied by a former SEIU health care lobbyist and ACORN organizer.  To be exact, he was Executive Vice President–the #2–at SEIU 1199 in New York City.


After Gaspard was appointed to the White House, Carribbean Voice quoted him as saying, “I grew up in 1199…and I will always be an 1199er wherever I am.”  SEIU’s luxury is that now taxpayers are paying for it.



New DNC Executive Director Is Former ACORN And SEIU Operative
Steven Nelson is reporting that the Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine announced that he had selected the radical Marxist/Socialist, Patrick Gaspard, to serve as the political party’s new executive director.

The selection is certain to draw criticism from conservatives because of Gaspard’s past association with activist organization ACORN.

Gaspard donated thousands of dollars to ACORN, The American Spectator has reported, and worked for New York’s Working Families Party and labor union SEIU.

Kaine wrote in the letter, "He understands the importance of grassroots politics and team building… Working together, I am confident that we can protect the progress of the past two years, achieve important electoral victories in 2011 and 2012."

Gaspard is currently working as the Obama administration’s director of the Office of Political Affairs.

A radical Marxist/Socialist is now the Executive Director of  the Democratic National Committee.  What does that tell you about the Democratic Party?
