The Marxist/Socialist Genealogy
of Patrick Gaspard
says 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.
Gaspard has ties to the groups behind
ACORN --the groups that helped Obama during his Chicago days --
Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party offshoot, the
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 ...
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
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.
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 (ACT).
New Zeal blogsite has a LOT more information for purposes of
understanding the hard-left Obama collection of "czars" -- and Obama's
seemingly unhinged foreign and domestic policies.
|ACORN Paycheck Aside, Patrick Gaspard Is A
Several days ago, Capital Research Center’s Matthew Vadum
published research here indicating an ACORN alumni in the White
House (other than the president): Political Director Patrick Gaspard.
As I did
weeks prior at
ACORNcracked.com, Matthew used a Wade Rathke blog as the source,
which Rathke, the founder of ACORN, immediately changed after Vadum’s
report, citing "memory tricks." Politico
led the way in poo-pooing the connection once Rathke played
Rathke said it not only on his blog, but also at a book signing in
New Orleans, which was recently covered in the Fox News Special:
The Truth About ACORN.” While we attended that book signing
and were not able to get that portion on tape, the Fox documentary crew
did. Sadly, the remarks apparently ended up on the cutting room
The fact is, Patrick Gaspard, Obama’s
“Glue Man,” is more important than Van Jones ever hoped of being.
The fact is, one of the most critical and influential jobs in a White
House, the Director of Political Affairs, is occupied by a former SEIU
health care lobbyist and ACORN organizer. To be exact, he was
Executive Vice President–the #2–at SEIU 1199 in New York City.
After Gaspard was appointed to the White House,
Carribbean Voice quoted him as saying, “I grew up in 1199…and I will
always be an 1199er wherever I am.” SEIU’s luxury is that now
taxpayers are paying for it.

Obama administration’s director of the Office of Political Affairs.
