The Marxist/Socialist Genealogy of Patrick Gaspard

Patrick Gaspard is a powerful man. And he has a very sketch set of friends, mentors, acquaintances, collaborators, and running dog pals.

In June 2009 Patrick Gaspard, a Brooklyn-based, 41-year-old Democratic operative, became White House director of the Office of Political Affairs.

And he has a lot in common with Obama.

This post looks at Gaspard's ties to the groups behind ACORN-the groups that helped President Obama during his Chicago days-Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party offshoot Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism...

Like Obama, Patrick Gaspard wrote poetry. Like Obama , Patrick Gaspard grew up admiring third world leftists and revolutionaries. He reportedly idolized Aime Cesaire, a radical poet/politician from the French colony of Martinique.

He was also behind the civil unrest following the police shooting of Amadou Diallo in New York City--and was asked to stir up trouble by (ta-da!) SEIU--which had been a target of HUAC in 1948.

The Communist influence in SEIU 1199 never diminished, until ...

...the Communist Party split in 1991, several Local 1199 officials joined the dissenting faction and took many comrades into the breakaway Committees of Correspondence.

Friedman, Pizarro, Jacques and Garcia all went on to support Committees of Correspondence.

Pizarro also went on to help found the radical New Party, which Obama joined in Chicago in 1995


In 2003, Patrick Gaspard was granted leave from Local 1199 to work as the deputy national field director for the presidential campaign of Howard Dean. After Dean was eliminated from the race, Gaspard became national field director for George Soros’ political action group America Coming Together

By 2001 Gaspard was a leading activist in the New Party offshoot, the New York Working Families Party-a DSA/ACORN/Committees of Correspondence/Communist Party collaboration

That's hardly all. The New Zeal blogsite has a LOT more information. But for purposes of understanding the hard-left Obama collection of "czars"--and Obama's seemingly unhinged foreign and domestic policies, this article will be more than you ever need.
