Ron Bloom: Mao and Free Market 'Nonsense'

We know that the murderous Mao Tse-tung is one of White House Communications Director Anita Dunn's favorite political philosophers.

It turns out that yet another member of Obama's team is on the same page as Mao.

Is there really any doubt that Obama and his administration are a pack of radical Leftists?

Here's video that reveals the views of Ron Bloom, Obama's Manufacturing Czar. He's not a fan of the free market.

Bloom gave a keynote address at the 6th Annual Distressed Investing Forum, Union League Club, New York, February 27-28, 2008.

His speeech was "about a union's role in bankruptcy and restructuring."

RON BLOOM: In fact, in retrospect one finds that these restructurings are better than the slow death that our companies were in; but at the time and in the moment, it is almost never something we welcome. So, this is a..., but nevertheless, this is a world we've had to learn about. As we've tried to learn about this world, we have evolved some views....

Generally speaking, we get the joke. We know that the free market is nonsense. We know that the whole point is to game the system, to beat the market or at least find someone who will pay you a lot of money, 'cause they're convinced that there is a free lunch.

We know this is largely about power, that it's an adults only no limit game. We kind of agree with Mao that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun. And we get it that if you want a friend you should get a dog.

Good grief.

What is with this fascination with Mao?

Bloom's beliefs don't seem to be in sync with the American economic system, at least not as we've known it before the fringe Leftist Democrats took over.

"The free market is nonsense"?

So many of the people holding positions in the Obama administration are radicals. I didn't know that Mao was so popular among the Leftists wielding power in the U.S. government.

I don't remember hearing Mao come up much during the 2008 campaign. Of course it would depend upon his audience, but for the most part, Obama presented himself as a moderate, someone in the mainstream. He didn't promise Americans that he would surround himself with admirers of Mao.

Obama in the White House doesn't bear a lot of resemblance to candidate Obama on the campaign trail.

Does Obama believe that the free market is nonsense?

Is the U.S. president a Mao fan?



NEWT GINGRICH: This is the most radically Left-wing government in American history, and I totally underestimated how many radical Leftists he would bring into the government.

The czars are a reflection of Obama. Mao has been quoted by White House Communi(st)cations Director Anita Dunn as well.
Wake up America!

Bama said to look at whom he surrounds himself to see how he would lead. So lets take him at his word: he has surrounded himself with Marxists, Maoists, Communists and revolutionaries.
HE told us how he would govern.
We are in big trouble!

If you want to here another Czar from obama talk about Mao than just check out link below. This is nuts that we have this in our White House. We need to take back our country and defend Liberty.

If we don't get extremely serious about sending these Mao lovers packing we will be fighting in the streets to preserve our good ol USA. Financially support the constitutional conservative no matter what party. These are not Americans, they hate America, at least the America we used to be.

These people in office probably don't even have a clue about who Mao Zedong was. They've probably never studied Chinese history or even been to China, so how could they even make an informed decision about Mao? I find to be not only disturbing but misinformed and blatantly naive. The thing that disgusts me most is that I have lived in China for nearly 2 years and almost no one would ever say that Mao is a role model, not even their own people...disgusting!
