Obama White House Flack A Maoist?

Posted By Matthew Vadum On October 16, 2009 @ 4:15 am In NewsReal Blog | No Comments

Obama White House communications director Anita Dunn idolizes Mao Zedong, the brutal Communist dictator of China responsible for the slaughter of tens of millions of innocent victims, Glenn Beck just revealed on his TV show.

Mao, who is arguably the greatest mass murderer in history, is “one of the two people that I turn to most,” Dunn is shown saying in a videotaped speech. (The other person she identified was Mother Teresa.) In a sane world this revelation about Mao would have Dunn already cleaning out her desk, her career in tatters.

But not in President Obama’s Washington. Will the mainstream media even bother reporting the White House spokeswoman’s admiration for Mao? Can you imagine how the press would have reacted if she identified Hitler as an inspiration in her speech?

Dunn’s Maoism (if she is indeed a Maoist–the burden is now on her to explain herself) is especially relevant given that she has been chosen by President Obama to lead his “war” against Fox News. It’s good to know she draws inspiration from a bloodthirsty totalitarian dictator as she helps to lead the Obama administration’s assault on the First Amendment.

Dunn is a co-founder of Squire Knapp Dunn Communications, a public relations firm. A partner in the firm, she is currently listed as being on a leave of absence.

Michelle Malkin notes that Dunn “is married to Obama thug lawyer Robert Bauer, who tried valiantly to get the [Department of Justice] to prosecute conservative critics and punish TV stations for running an ad critical of Obama’s relationship with [the] Weather Underground['s] Bill Ayers.”

Predictably, the paid professional liars at George Soros’s Media Matters for America immediately sought to spin away the Obama administration’s latest budding public relations debacle.
