Confronting Anita “Mao Tse” Dunn – by David Swindle

The creation and defense of a tolerant, inclusive society was the Founding Fathers’ objective. They wrote it into the Constitution.

However, to maintain a tolerant society, there is something that we cannot tolerate: intolerance. Ideologies which seek to dominate over others cannot be allowed to grow.

My dear friend and colleague Jamie Glazov has recently put forth an interesting proposition: Anita Dunn must be held accountable for her comments praising communist killer Mao Tse-Tung. This issue cannot just be allowed to die down.

In promoting Mao as anything but history’s greatest mass murderer, Dunn was promoting intolerance. She was promoting control and domination. This cannot be tolerated.

Is it a coincidence that Dunn both chose to reference Mao and head up the Obama administration’s anti-Fox efforts? Of course not. In a tolerant society the challenges of political opponents like a handful of Fox News’ commentators would be answered. They would not be marginalized. But such a society is not one that Dunn appears to champion.

As such NewsReal is launching its “Chairman Dunn: Stand-Up Comedian” campaign to keep this issue going until Dunn is held accountable for her words and actions. This page will serve as an archive for all of our previous Anita Dunn/Chairman Mao coverage as well as those to come.

Editor’s note: Get the whole story on why leftists venerate communist mass murderers in Jamie Glazov’s new book, United in Hate: The Left’s Romance with Tyranny and Terror.

    What struck me more than the refs to Mao and Mother Teresa (beginning with the cognitively dissonant linking the two in the first place) is that Dunn sounded like a ninny. Telling people "to do their own thing," is what the message itself was. What got me in the visual was that she was so earnest and serious about all this. How can you satirize people who are walking satires on themselves? Surely, criticizing someone as simple-minded as Dunn is a waste of time. More to the point is going after an administration who saw fit to give her a microphone in the first place.

    Anita Dunn is just another typical leftist radical in a long conga line of leftist radicals in the Obama Administration.

    A. Dunn – you are a blithering idiot. Folks, I am sick of the double-standard here. Had a republican mouthed these words during the BUSH 43 years, we may have witnessed a CIVIL WAR. The dems and mass media would no doubt swoop down and condem such vile words. But here in the “O admin,” A. Dunn gets a FREE PASS and is elevated to even a higher level of stature. This is hypocricy's finest hour!! What a travesty. With each passing day, I shake my head in utter disblief…What happened to America the beautiful? When exactly did it fall thru the cracks? Dammit if I know. And to think we have over 3.25 years to go with O.

    OH CRAP!

    There's no doubt in my mind that Obama is a Mao lover too. Mao's legacy of death has been whitewashed by the media and the radical academics. Like Che Guevara, Mao is romanticized as a symbol of “will” and liberation.

    Unfortunately, praising communist murderers is Beltway business-as-usual. Just go and Google Rep. Diane Watson (D-Tyranny) and listen to her praise Fidel Castro and his “healthcare” system. This woman should be removed from her Congressional seat for sedition.

    We need to add Diane Watson to the Anita Dunn accountability list. Please spread the word.

    “…What happened to America the beautiful? When exactly did it fall thru the cracks?”

    During the acid-dropping, pot-smoking, Haight-Ashbury/Woodstock era. That generation of free-love-if-it-feels-good-do-it-make-love-not-war vapor-brained “idealists” have infested the nation's infrastructure like Marxist termites and they're all on crack.

    Did her publicly broadcast Leftist, radical beliefs secure her position of power? As Anita Dunn, so deeply admires Mao who murdered 70 million Chinese innocents, what implications does that have for millions of American innocents?

    Every American has reason to be very concerned. This is no longer the America we once knew.

    EVERY AMERICAN MUST BE MADE AWARE OF THIS SPEECH!

    The mainstream media are BETRAYING Americans by their silence. It is easy to take over a country when the media cooperate in the take over.

    So, to be a “free” and “tolerant” society, we must agree only to permit speech that affirms the “right” beliefs about historical figures, even if this means only accepting speech that fundamentally distorts the historical record?

    Obama's administration must admire Mao Tse Tung as well, to even permit her to publically declare her prefrences and not loose her position in American Government.
    You're done Anita Dunn!

    Mao is a hero to most in China.

    Why are right-wingers so historically stupid?

  • Dave

    Mao actually doubled the population of China … read a book someday.

    right-wingers bask in not knowing any history.

  • danaigh

    Any many Russians admire Stalin & Lenin.

    That must prove something!

    But what would that be Carlos?

  • becolt

    So this forgives 70 million deaths? Read a book that gives you the straight story someday–or better yet–with that logic: get your head checked.

  • becolt

    We can include the entirety of the CPC along with Watson on that one. Schakowski, B. Lee, etc. Card-carrying socialists (no exaggeration)

  • becolt

    I have to assume this ends when a government is steered against its own people. This is not a matter of free speech, but of filling government jobs with people whom identify their country and its ideals as something they AGREE WITH.
