The Communist Party of The U.S. Has Endorsed John Kerry and the Vietnamese Communists Have Enshrined Kerry in One of Their Museums-Fiction! & Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
The eRumor says that the Communist Party of the U.S. has endorsed John Kerry.
It quotes a letter from a Communist Party official in Georgia who said the party supports John Kerry and regards the defeat of George Bush to be the single most important issue in November.
It also says that one of Kerry’s campaign themes, “Let America Be America Again”, is borrowed from a Communist poet, and that John Kerry is in “The Hanoi Hall of Fame” in Vietnam.
The Communist Party of the United States is not running a candidate for president this year.
It’s official position regarding the candidates is that the party is not endorsing any of them.
It is however, conducting a strong campaign to defeat President Bush.
Since the writer of this eRumor did not identify himself or herself, it’s hearsay as to whether a Communist official from Georgia said the party supported Kerry.
Regarding John Kerry’s picture appearing in a museum in Vietnam, that story is true.
There is a facility in Ho Chi Minh City that is called “The Vietnamese Communist War Remnants Museum.”
A Conservative group called Vietnam Vets for Truth sent a photographer to the museum In June, 2004 to document the presence of the picture and to confirm that it was still on display.
Kerry critics say it shows that Kerry is being honored by the Communist Vietnamese.
Some reports say the picture is in a portion of the museum that honors whose who helped the communists achieve victory in Vietnam.
Kerry supporters say the picture is not from Kerry’s anti-war years but shows him as a member of a delegation of Americans who were in Vietnam because of the issue of American prisoners of war and missing in action.

Regarding Kerry’s quoting poet Langston Hughes, that is also true.
In many of Kerry speeches he has used the phrase “Let America be America again” and in some of them, such a speech on the anniversary of the famous Brown Versus the Board of Education court decision, he’s said it’s a quote from Langston Hughes.
Hughes was never officially a member of the Communist Party, but was a socialist columnist whose articles frequently appeared in publications of the Communist Party USA.

THINK ABOUT THIS BEFORE VOTING FOR JOHN KERRY and JOHN EDWARDS.
YOU ALL ARE MY FRIENDS REGARDLESS OF HOW YOU VOTE. I HOPE I DON’T OFFEND
ANYONE, BUT THIS SCARES ME TO DEATH…AND I HAD TO SHARE.
GUESS WHO’S ENDORSING JOHN KERRY????
The Communist Party of The United States of America, CPUSA, is publicly
supporting the election of John Kerry.
No, this is not a typo…you read it correctly The CPUSA has made available
on its website, http://www.cpusa.org/, an advertisement entitled Top Ten
Reasons To Defeat Bush. This advertisement can be downloaded. The communist
party urges readers to place this ad in local newspapers throughout the
country to defeat President Bush.
Remarkably, the “Top Ten Reasons” of the Communist party are identical to
those of the Democratic party; out-sourcing, homosexual rights, abortion and
At first, it was thought that “t! his was only a coincidence.” The
Democratic party of the United States couldn’t be in lock step with the
Marxists! So, the originator of this email wrote to a spokesman of the CPUSA
in Georgia and here is part of the spokesman’s letter: “The CPUSA supports
the John Kerry campaign with donations and volunteer effort. We believe that
defeating George Bush is the single most important issue this November”
**Next, it was discovered that one of Kerry’s campaign themes is “Let
America be America Again.” This slogan was borrowed from a Communist poet,
Langston Hughes. This is not common knowledge to the average American. “Let
America be America Again” sounds good but is a rambling, gloomy poem.
Interestingly, another poem by Langston goes as follows; “Goodbye, Christ
Jesus, Lord, God, Jehovah, Beat it on away from here now. Make way for a new
guy with no religion at all — A real guy named Marx, communist, Lenin,
Peasant, Stalin, Worker, ME — I said, ME!”
Then, if this was not convincing enough that the Democratic party has lost
it, a third discovery!
**A Vietnam vet group took a trip to Communist Hanoi to investigate a report
that John Kerry was in the “Hanoi Hall of Fame.” Yes, there is a museum in
Hanoi with a section dedicated to foreign activists who help defeat the
United States Military in Vietnam. Of course, you would expect Jane Fonda’s
picture to be there. But, alas, there is John Kerry’s picture shaking the
hand of a communist official.
Never has there been such a tragedy! Never has there been such a threat to
America! Has ! the Democratic party has been taken over by the far, far
It’s not only the communists but the homosexual activists who are appalled
that George Bush is married to a woman! They are enraged that the President
wants a constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage between a
man and woman.
Then we have the ACLU running to a federal activist judge with every piece
of legislation that doesn’t fit into their leftist agenda. They support
every Democratic socialist whim. The removal of the Ten Commandments is
their top priority!
