Connecticut Democrat Senator Richard Blumenthal was the “special surprise guest” at an award ceremony hosted by a Communist Party affiliate political advocacy organization. He used his speech to tout the ‘Build Back Broke’ agenda that in fact gives tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires. Ironic.
This event, in which Blumenthal said he was “excited and honored” to speak, was used in part to recruit new members to the organization.
One of the emcees urged attendees to “join the Communist Party in this epic time as we make good trouble to uproot systemic racism, retool the war economy, tax the rich, address climate change, secure voting rights, and create a new socialist system that puts people, peace, and planet before profits.” Ironically, Blumenthal is one of the wealthiest U.S. senators, with an estimated net worth of $100 million. Some of his investments even include a real-estate development company linked to the Communist Chinese government.
Blumenthal is so out of touch on so many levels.
Statement from NRSC Lizzie Litzow: “One of our Democrat U.S. Senators was excited and honored to speak at an event hosted by an organization affiliated with the Communist Party, an event where speakers urged attendees to join the Communist Party. This is how far Left and radical today’s Democrat Party has gone. Democrats are so out of touch with what Americans want and need. The hardworking people of Connecticut deserve better.”
