Communists Recruit by Phone in St. Louis

According to an Article in the Communist Party USA news, People's World, the CPUSA in St. Louis held their first 'phone bank' this month:

"ST. LOUIS, Mo. (Peoplesworld.org) - "You really made my day," said the voice on the other end of the phone, from Austin, Texas. "I'm so happy to hear from you guys." He was on his way to the South by Southwest music festival, but paused long enough to talk to a phonebanker.

That was a typical response from the coast-to-coast call to 1,500 new members of the Communist Party USA and Young Communist League on March 19. All had joined the CPUSA or YCL online recently, and some were getting their first contact.

"It was a great reception. People really want to be a part of the Communist Party," said Jonathan, one of the phone bankers. "Several people were very excited and said, 'I was wondering when someone was going to call me.'"


Just another reason to Thank God for Caller ID.

I wish these guys would call me. I would love to hear from them how their wonderful philosophy worked in Cambodia. I'd like them to hear from my friends whose families were touched by their system's inherent fairness.

Yeah, I know Cambodians, Laotians, Thais and Burmese. I'd love for my friends and I to have an up close and personal discussion with these individuals.

I think it's a great idea.

We'll treat them with the same kindness their forebears treated ours.
