During Mr. Obama's 8 years as POTUS, the Rabid Right, like a dog on a bone, reminded anyone who would listen to them that Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., was a Communist, a dubious claim, he was more likely a Socialist. But how this had anything to do with President Obama is a mystery, since Obama, Sr., left his wife, Stanley Anne, three years after their son was born, and he saw Barack, Jr., only once more for a brief visit in Hawaii when the future president was ten years old.

Why do I bring this up?

Only to illustrate, for the gazillionth time, the Rabid Right's dedication to hypocrisy.

The Rabid Right is completely silent on the fact that the future FLOTUS, Melania Trump, grew up in a home where the head of the household, Viktor Knavs, was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party. That's right.

I've yet to read anything on the Rabid Right that discusses this prickly little nugget of news that would have, (had it been about Michelle Obama), sent the Communist-obsessed righties into orbit with rage, accusations, and lamentations.

So let that sink in. The next FLOTUS grew up in a Communist household. Melania Trump's father was a Communist*.

*(NOTE:  If it were the Rabid Right reporting this news about a Democratic FLOTUS's father, they would have described him as a "dirty Communist.")

The wife of the next POTUS and the most ridiculous man in world politics is the daughter of a card-carrying communist.

"Although her dad Viktor Knavs was a registered Communist, her mum Amalija wasn’t. But it is pretty exceptional, as at that time only around five per cent of Slovenians were Communist party members."

And here's a photo of Melania's father. Does he remind you of anyone?

Vikor Knavs

And here is a copy of proof of his Communist Party membership:

Records of Viktor Knav’s Communist Party membership (Picture: Archives of the Republic of Slovenia)

What does this all mean? Possibly nothing -- or maybe not. We don't know yet.

I think it's extraordinary that Melania Trump, nee Knavs, was raised in a Communist home and that the future POTUS, Donald Trump and the present GOP have such a strong affinity for the former Communist head of the KGB, because Trump and the present GOP probably owe the recent electoral victory to Vladimir Putin.

Remember when the GOP was all about finding Reds under your beds? Now all we need to do to find one is to look at Melania Trump's family tree.

Who's surprised with this? Trump loves commies.

Rational Nation USA said...

What is much more important: 1) is Melania a current card carrying member of the communist party herself and 2) is the man CHILD President A communist sympathizer?

Cok Burger said...

You've made a comment regarding Trumps win recently which I can't get out of my head "no good will come of this"
I think its the most accurate statement I've heard on the subject. I'd love you to be wrong but hold out no hope. We are all so screwed.

Meanwhile a KKK sympathizer was questioned by the Senate and had to swear he's not a racist while he describes the voting rights act as "intrusive".

There doesn't seem to be a form of authoritarianism that President Grabby finds objectionable.

The least dangerous member of his proposed cabinet seems to be a guy nicknamed "Mad Dog".

OT... 51% of Americans disapprove of the way Trump has handled himself as President elect and he is viewed unfavorably by the same percentage. ABC reporting.

Anonymous @1:03 PM, Trump doesn't have a problem with being close to Communists and admiring them.

RN, I don't think Melania gives much thought to whether or not she or her husband like Communists. I think her interests are with "Pilates" and "reading magazines." Those are actual quotes from the future FLOTUS when she was interviewed recently.

Cok Burger, I'm sorry to say I still can't see anything good coming from a man who knows nothing about government as the head of government.

Ducky, can we really be watching this? A man who is against civil rights in charge of enforcing the laws of the US?

RN, Donald Trump is the MOST DISLIKED PEOTUS in modern American history. Mr. Obama's approval numbers are far and away better than Trump's/.

Ray said...

America. Obama approval 55%.

Trump disapproval rating 51%.

New president enters office already unpopular.

The road ahead's gonna be rocky indeed.

Word out there is that the Russians have dossiers full of acts of perverted sexual acts on the future POTUS, Donald J. Trump:

Russian intelligence officers planned to blackmail Donald Trump with knowledge of his alleged "perverted sexual acts," a new report obtained by Buzzfeed alleges. The unverified report by a person claiming to be a former British intelligence official alleges that Russian officials intended to blackmail Trump with evidence of him allegedly hiring multiple sex workers to perform "golden showers" in front of him. The hotel where the acts allegedly occurred were said to be under Russian surveillance. -- Buzzfeed

Shaw Kenawe said...

Ray, yeah. Donald isn't liked by a majority of Americans, but apparently he's liked by people who don't mind their POTUS being a sexual pervert.

Cok Burger said...

Hey Shaw. I'd add "gold digging" and "botox" to Melania's interests as well!

Ducky's here said...

Has he tweeted about the leak that he' into water sports?

Shaw Kenawe said...

Cok Burger, I read a long article on Melania in The New Yorker in which, when asked what her hobbies were, she answered, "Pilates and reading magazines." Truth.

Shaw Kenawe said...


I've always said he was a pissant creep. Now these leaks prove it.

Trump has a close personal relationship with Bladdermir Putin.
