The Origins of Communism in California

Examining the long march to Communism in California shows that it took Progressives over a hundred years to achieve their totalitarian California dream.

In 1879, the NY Times reported on the new California Constitution which was instigated by… wait for it… the Labor Party. Wouldn’t you know, community organizers peddling their Communism way back then. In the article, “Communism in California,” notice that their oppressive, totalitarian dream was instituted through taxation and taking control of land and railways. Does this sound similar to what they’re doing at an accelerated pace today? It certainly parallels what Nancy Pelosi brought to the House floor in 1992, which she called “Agenda 21” and said it is the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development program.

Most notable in the 1879 NY Times article is the author’s apparent realization of the danger of enacting a mild form of Socialism that would lead to a Communist California, while at the same time finding comfort in the fact that it’s happening in a “distant part of the country.” The author may have presumed it would prove disastrous before infecting other States and spreading throughout the US like a violent and deadly virus. Little did the author know that it would be emanating from our very own White House, with an iron fist, within 130 years.

COMMUNISM IN CALIFORNIA (Published May 9, 1879)


“… it is clear that the efforts of the conservative people of California have not been able to stem the tide which has lately set toward Communism in the Golden State. It must be said that the experiment of a mild form of Socialism is now about to be tried in one of the States of the Republic. Perhaps it is just as well that it should be tried in a distant part of the country, and in a State which always makes much of its own griefs, as well as of its own advantages. There never was a serious desire for a remodeling of the Constitution of California until the so-called Labor Party became an important factor in the politics of the State…”

“The adoption of the new Constitution, absurd as it may be in some of its provisions, is the manifestation of a rebellion against what is called “the tyranny of capital.” It is a violent remedy for actual ills. It is a practical overturning of the principles that have governed American commercial life ever since the foundation of the Republic. Many requirements of the new Constitution are impossible of execution. Others will be evaded by corrupt officers. But enough will remain to bring disaster and financial distress upon the people.”

Many lament what California has become and, despite the beauty of this State, people and businesses are leaving as fast as they can. On the other hand, Communists like Van Jones and the Union leaders who control this State enjoy calling California their “home” while they live in the lap of luxury courtesy of people like George Soros and Barack Obama (through our tax dollars, of course).

A May Day rally in Los Angeles, co-sponsored by SEIU and various communist groups, as well as other unions, reflected yet another step in the normalization of self-identified communist and socialist ideologies in the Obama era. Not only did SEIU help to organize the rally in conjunction with communists, they marched side-by-side with communists, while union members carried communist flags, communists carried union signs and altogether there was no real way to tell the two apart.

The communists freely and proudly declare their affiliation. And SEIU has no problem marching arm-in-arm with them.

“Smash Capitalism” is a slogan SEIU apparently endorses – or at least doesn’t mind marching behind. In case you think SEIU is some peripheral out-of-the-mainstream organization:

SEIU devoted $28 million to Obama’s campaign, making SEIU “the organization that spent the most to help Barack Obama get elected president.”

Furthermore, who is Obama’s favorite White House guest and one of his closest confidants? The individual who has visited the Obama White House the most: SEIU President Andy Stern, who has visited 53 times. Obama is closely linked with SEIU. EIU is closely linked with communists. You do the math.

Did I say communists? Sorry, I meant Communists (with a capital “C”). Note how the Communists that day (like the women on the right in this photo) carried solid red flags symbolizing their ideology. Keep that in mind as you view the next photo.

One of the SEIU leaders picked up a Communist flag and led a contingent of rank-and-file SEIU members. Everyone was OK with that.

The way you can identify SEIU members in all these pictures: They’re the ones in purple T-shirts carrying blue-and-yellow signs.

So, as you can see, the communists and the union members intermingled as the march progressed.

In case you were wondering what SEIU was saying during all of this, there is a video of SEIU chanting: “Legalization or REVOLUTION!” Clear enough?

And it wasn’t just the SEIU at the march – other “normal” unions like the AFL-CIO were on hand as well. There were plenty of teachers’ unions attending too and they brought along many of their public school students for some good old-fashioned communist indoctrination.

Most in the US who walk around with Che buttons or Che shirts do so simply because they foolishly think he’s “cool.” These hardcore Communists carry his image not because he’s “cool,” but because he was one of the most radical revolutionaries who ever lived. Right up there with Lenin, apparently.

No comment necessary!

In order to have a more “civil dialogue” with their political opponents, the marchers made a puppet of a demonic Statue of Liberty aligned with the “Tea Bag Party.”

OK, I guess Hitler comparisons are off the table for now – too many people have called it taboo. So what’s second best? The Devil!

Tell me the honest truth: If the Tea Party had marched in a rally behind a banner held up by fascists or neo-Nazis, don’t you think it would have been national news? But the nation’s biggest Obama-supporting political organization marched behind banners like these and not a peep about it in the media. Hmmmm…

Until recently, the average American has regarded fascists and Communists as equally noxious and equally malignant. As well they should have. But the drive these days by the left side of the spectrum is to make communism and socialism somewhat less remarkable and more palatable. For two years, they angrily denied the Tea Party accusation that Obama’s policies and supporters had a socialist bent.

But in recent months, as the accusation has started to gain traction, the new leftist tactic has become: “What’s so bad about socialism after all? You’re demonizing a very popular and respectable ideology!”

  1. Arlen Williams says

    Yes, communist influence in California began long, long ago. For just one example, Anaheim was founded in 1857 (by Germans, of course) as a communist village.

    • Hi Arlen, Based on the New York Times article, it looks like people tried to defeat it, but they just couldn’t do it. Do you think that’s why so many communists and like-minded politicians dominate California? It sure has swept across the country in the past 130+ years, hasn’t it?

      I just can’t understand how people can seek oppression instead of enjoying and appreciating individual Liberty.

  2. Arlen Williams says

    It becomes apparent that communists settled in America, chiefly from Germany, in the 1800’s in a strategically planned fashion, especially in New York, Chicago (and Wisconsin, into Minnesota and Iowa), and California — also in pockets scattered throughout the nation, often in rural communities.

    I believe it is no mere happenstance that this financed and coordinated movement, supposedly of poor people (occurring since before Marx and Engels) and the Rothschild complex come from the same place at the same time.

    • They’ve been incredibly successful. Their ‘business model’ works. Conservatives need to adapt their business model (minus the evilness) and ‘spread Constitutional conservatism’, especially to our youth and through media. I think the Tea Party is the start of that, but we’ve got a lot more to do.

  3. Hollywood, Communist Hollywood, has diverted all Gulag history into the dust bin. Communism, the word is not even allowed. All the top brass control thinking in Hollywood. Look at the stark record: several hundred films produced showing the German socialists, and not a single major film in all these years showing the ultimate of all totalitsrisn dictatorship hells, of Stalin’s Soviet Socialist massive slave labor prison, taking up thousands of square miles of the Gulag Archipelago, and continuing its inhuman slavery economy long after the end of WWII. Yes, there plenty of books to prove it, BUT NOT A WORD FROM THE MAGIC FILM WORLD HOLLYWOOD.
    The single best book to read on the subject of Communism ingeniously creeping into this great country, is “KEYNES AT HARVARD – Economic Deception as a Political Credo”, 1957, by ZYGMUND DOBBS, and is wonderfully, A FREEDOWNLOAD It shows the exact day when Marxists decided to use the word “liberal” as a cover-up for Communism……..and they got away with it, were able to infiltrate with amazing deception. A deception that simply could not have taken place had they been open and called themselves Communists. It is simply using the word, liberal, and later progressive, too, that have been elegantly deceptive FAKE ID passes for these destructive, enslaving criminals. There is a way to change the tide of Communism and solve this truly overwhelming problem. We have the answer and will be happy to reveal it to GULAGBOUND.COM

  4. And congratulations! Gulagbound is one of the best titles ever created because it is, in proven fact, the ultimate goal of all the deceivers, proven by the mafia media’s own careful censorship of this terrifying end result of cancerous communism consuming our culture.

  5. OMG! What happened to America?

  6. A free ride, lazy? Communist countries, socialist countries have PEOPLE who STILL WORK.You guys say kt yourself that commies will opress us and labor camps will pop up blah blah blah. Threy juST DONT sLAVE AWAY WHILE GOING DEEPER AND DEEPER INTO DEBT. THEY HAVE TRUE WORK ETHIC. THEY WORK FOR THE SAKE OF WORKING, U ALL WORK JUST TO SURVIVE. IF U DONT ,THEN U R THE FEW LUCKY ONES WHO SHOULDNT SAY {SH*T] CAUSE UR LEAUSIRE LIFE was your free ride off the backs of your family! Im so glad marxism is a threat to morons like u, it proves it could work. If it couldnt u wouldnt care .You would sit back and say “let those dummies try that [sh*t], it aint going no where, wont win over your beloved capitalism. U guys r so ignorant and indoctrinated with the capitalist ideology u dont even realize your oppressed. Jesus christ died for your sins yet u let him die in vain! U just continue to commit the same sin over and over whike saying u follow one book and god while behaving and thinking like an evil Satan spawn. u r either dumb or evil heartless or mindless take your FACE IT JESUS CHRIST WOULD BE A COMMUNIST HAD U MET HIM TODAY.! SO STOP WITH YOUR PUPPET PROGRAMMED PROPAGANDA U R JUST LIKE THE COMMIES U CLAIM TO HATE, ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THEY FIGHT TO END OPPRESSION AND U GUYS FIGHT TO KEEP IT. IF U THINK YOUR FREE, U WOULD BE DUMB ENOUGH TO BE A CONSERVATIVE .GUNS GOD GREED THATS YOUR DOCTRINE. WELL take YOUR GUNS CAUSE if THE COMMIES DONT SAVE US ALL AND KILL OFF U IDIOTS , U SHOULD JUST DO IT YOURSELF OR I WILL

    • Arlen Williams says

      Katherine, would you like to debate by quoting Jesus and the Bible overall? If so, please start. Show me where Jesus would be an (extortionist) communist, please, by quoting the Bible. Then, I’d like to take my turn. We could go on….

  7. Sen. Eugene McCathy was absolutely right about the Hollyweird card-carrying commies.

  8. I’ve researched, developed, designed and prepared a new technology company for a new social security number fraud screening infrastructure! The technology is designed to stop identity fraud permanently by blocking the use of lost, stolen, fake or black market identity and payment credentials! My invention was born on Memorial Day, may 30, 2017 and I’ve been stalked, robbed, abused, tortured, slandered and sabotaged non-stop everyday for eleven years! There’s a huge, well financed, sick criminal communist network hunting and robbing American citizens! The communist and organized crime criminals are making hundreds of millions and billions of dollars hunting the unique, best and brightest to steal ideas, works, creativity, experiences, destinies, valuable contacts, inventions and historic legacies! The true creators and their families lives are unnaturally destroyed by the criminal displacement and robbery! The communist criminal network in the United States has stolen my technology innovations, new markets, new revenue models and trade secrets making hundreds of billions of dollars in my face while I’m homeless! I’m in Silicon Valley California trying to find investors to launch my company, find lawyers and build a team! COMMUNIST ARE CRIMINALS that secretly and quietly invade a country to steal all its wealth, create massive debt, promote mass legal and illegal immigration and place criminals in all top positions including law enforcement so no one helps you when you complain! AND THEN; THE ECONOMY COLLAPSE! THE POOR SOCIALIST COMMUNIST LEGAL AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS BEGIN SCATTERING TO THE NEXT RICH NATION FOR A BETTER LIFE! the Communist finally destroyed America’s immigration quota system in 1965 opening American borders to millions of poor anti-American people from socialist and communist countries! America is now $20 trillion dollars in debt from the communist and organized crime criminals conspiracy! Millions of socialist communist poor are working against Americans and the American way of life! IT’S WAR! I’ve been robbed by this communist criminal network! President Obama gave $500 million dollars of tax payers money to government contractors who built my invention’s main infrastructure concept and revenue model for the Social Security Administration! The Social Security Administration was still verifying social security numbers manually through employees and using outdated 30 year old data centers at the time I filed my Social Security Number Fraud Screening System technology invention at the United States Patent & Trademark Office in 2005! The communist criminals have made hundreds of billions of dollars from robbing my technology innovations! Mobile Payments was filed in my patent applications before the smart phone revolution! Theft of my mobile phone payments technology innovation inspired the obvious such as mobile phone internet and a trillion dollar mobile phone applications market! Apple Computers is the market leader for the smart phone revolution with iPhone because men whom have stolen my trade secrets knew Steve Jobs personally! Twitter founder Dorsey left Twitter and started a billion dollar mobile phone point of sale technology company called SQUARE from a trade secret stolen from my research! My stolen research briefly described a barely emerged new market and technology for mobile phone point of sale terminals! At the time of my discovery through research, mostly no one trusted the new technology for wireless swipes of payment cards! Dorsey must have been sold the stolen billion dollar trade secret! I’ve been working on my invention and company for twelve years come May 30, 2017! I’m in California’s Silicon Valley! All my efforts are sabotaged, my hair has been cut, property stolen, stalked and illegally monitored using the communist system called STASI and ZERZETSEN used by communist in Germany! It’s extremely brutal and everyone has ignored my request for help for over a decade including police! California locals are willing communist and organized crime stalkers, abusers and torturers! IT’S SICK AND DISTURING to see something like this grow secretly and quietly in America but the DAMAGE and DESTRUCTION is so huge! It’s sad and shocking to see this happen to the Citizens of the United States of America! We suffered much and been through hell to build a superpower great nation! America isn’t wealthy from being a communist or socialist country! The parasites from socialist and communist countries are beggars! America has always helped its poor via government assistance while those whom are conquering the world are free to do so via a free capitalist system! The British established a free-capitalist-market upon colonization! Socialist invaded Latin America way after the Spanish colonizers robbed stole all their resources for the first 300 years! The mind of immigrants from socialist and communist countries is opposite of minds of an American Republic! WE’RE AT WAR! Thank You!

  9. The comment above belongs to me! Inventor Founder Deena Louise Millsapp, Social Security Number Fraud Screening Infrastructure and Foundation!, Thank You!

  10. Communism is an evil form of government that steals from the rights of people without regard for human beings. They’re murders.

  11. And to think the deep state of Obama is or was pushing the UN Agenda 21 plan to make us part of a Communist one world gov. excuse is climate change. I think the outrage going now is they were sure Hillary would win & continue Obama’s policies to finish it. I had heard a mention of this once on the news by Glen Beck so I researched & found their document & couple of years later I found their document from their office of disarmament affairs, jest of it says “we must confiscate weapons from the hands of civilians so we can finish implementing Agenda 21!” But I think the mainstream media is actually “state run” media like communist countries had or have, only report on that view point!

  12. Communism destroyed about 218 millions of lives. Shoot communist right away.
