Few people would suspect that the Communist Party USA has considerable political influence in Arizona, but unfortunately it does.
The Party is actually comparatively strong in Arizona, because of its former base in the mining industry and more recently its work in stifling opposition to illegal immigration over the Mexican border.
For many years, the late Lorenzo Torrez (died 2012) chaired the Communist Party’s Mexican-American Equality Commission – the Party body charged with agitating among Latino communities and getting them out to vote for Democrat candidates.
The Party even has a school in Tuscon, the Salt of the Earth Labor College.
The Communist Party has also managed to heavily infiltrate the Arizona Democratic Party at the highest levels and has close relations with several Arizona elected officials – from Congress members on down.
Congressman Raul Grijalva was elected with Communist support – he has even written an article for the Communist newspaper Peoples Weekly World – back in 1993, when he was a humble Pima County Supervisor.
Congressman Ed Pastor was also elected with Party support and has endorsed at least one Communist Party designed Bill in the US Congress.
Freshman Phoenix Congresswoman, Kyrsten Sinema, has twice endorsed the People’s Weekly World May Day/Cinco de Mayo appeal (2002, 2003), an honor usually reserved for paid up Party members.
Arizona State Representative, Sally Ann Gonzales, spoke at the Party’s Salt of the Earth Labor College in February 2011.
Eva Carillo Dong, of the Governing Board of the Sunnyside Unified School District, has some Communist Party ties, as also does Adelita Grijalva, (Raul’s daughter), from the Governing Board of the Tuscon Unified School Board.
Great to see Arizona’s children are in safe hands!
