5 Facts Contradict Karen Bass’s Claim That She Is ‘Not a Communist’

By

Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), a vice presidential contender on Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden’s VP shortlist, told NBC News that she is “not a communist.”

“I’m not a socialist. I’m not a communist. I’ve belonged to one party my entire life and that’s the Democratic Party and I’m a Christian,” Bass told NBC News on Monday in response to reports of her long and troubling associations with communists.

While it is likely true that Bass has been a member of the Democratic Party her entire life, her decades-long association with communists, her membership in a communist front group run by Cuba’s communist regime, and her public praise for her communist mentor and communist influencers all paint a much more complex picture of her ideological leanings.

At least five facts seem to belie her claim that she is not a communist.

1. Early Communist Influences

2. Eulogy to Her Communist “Friend and Mentor” 

3. Leadership/Membership in a Communist Front Group Controlled by Cuba’s Communist Regime 

4. Associated with a Clandestine Maoist Organization

5. Socialist Speaking Engagements and Memorial for Communist Party Leader
