Anita Dunn Shares Her Murderous Mentor

Power comes from the barrel of a gun.” — Mao Zedong

Tennis legend Andre Agassi admits to having used Crystal Meth; Paris Hilton considers herself a role model for young girls; and presidential adviser and communications director Anita Dunn tells high-school students that the communist mass murderer Mao Zedong is one of the two people she “turns to most” for political guidance. And to think, not too long ago, baseball legend Dizzy Dean was considered a poor role model for using the word “ain’t.”

The world may have changed immensely since the days of Dizzy Dean, but children and adolescents are still the same. They still need solid role models. They need something beyond themselves to reach for and to care about. And dare I say it? Yes, they need clear direction in choosing between right and wrong.

Dunn’s message was an abdication of her responsibility, as an adult, to provide some of that direction. She owes the parents of that class an apology, and she owes all Americans an explanation beyond the childish one she initially offered: “It was just a joke.” It is no joke to encourage young graduates — who surely are not cognizant of the unspeakable atrocities Mao committed — to revere and emulate the most prolific mass-murderer in human history simply because he “followed his own path.”

No path is inherently good, just because it is your own. As parents, we strive to impress upon our children that there are always consequences for the choices they make; that all their choices ultimately impact not only the people they love most, but many others as well.

There is also a deeper issue to consider. The plague of multiculturalism that has blighted our history classes has created a generation unaware of the richness of their own nation’s history, and has left students desperate for worthy role models. Dunn advised the youngsters in her audience to fill that void with the philosophy of a barbaric dictator who butchered millions for the sake of his leftist utopian vision.

A vital question begs to be asked: Why didn’t Dunn draw from the pool of heroes in American history to make her point? There seems to be only one possible answer: she didn’t consider them to be as honorable, or as significant, as Chairman Mao.

    Anita Dunn could not tell the difference between a mass murderer Mao who murdered millions of his own people and a life saver mother Theresa. Her statement indicated that she was hallucinated and it is very unfortunate for America to have people like her to run the white house.

      @ Jan

      Anita Dunn has said she was introduced to Mao’s work by Lee Atwater. When I heard this, I found it had to believe. I’ve been making phone calls since. All who heard/hear and knew Mr. Atwater find it hard to believe. He did admire Sun Tzu witer of The Art of War.
      Mr. Atwater died a sudden/very early death from a rare brain tumor.

    Sorry if this crosses anyone’s stereotypes, but the inhabitants of Calcutta are less inclined to see ‘Mother’ Teresa as a suitable role model. In fact, they get very angry about someone who made their city synonymous with poverty and disease while actually doing very little about it. That she tried to do ‘good’ in personal terms, and at great sacrifice, is admirable at the micro level. Viewed from a wider perspective, however, she – and the Catholic church that has done so much to mar relations between India and the West – merely put up a lot of Catholic propaganda at minimal expense, fooled the dumbheads of Sweden out of the usual prize and dollars, and kept real investment, business, and even other more secular charities, away from Calcutta which is, in fact, a thriving – even booming – centre of enterprise, intelligence and much that is good about India. Yes, there’s poverty and disease there but, like the church she represents, she should have cleared up her own back yard before wandering off into the stereotyped ‘deprived East’ to minister to the perceived ‘backward blacks’. We don’t like it, Hindu, Moslem, Indian Christian or any other of our own myriad religions, really we don’t. No more than you in the US can enjoy being labelled ‘gun nuts’, ‘fanatics’, fundementalists, and even ‘racists’ by the cretinous forces of multiculturalism and PC that ‘just want to help you out of your evil plight’. Mao and Teresa! Sensible Bengalis spit on their shadows.

      Quite honestly I do not know a whole lot of Mother Teresa. It does sound like you are pretty angry at her-personally-for what she did in India. Let me ask you this, did she ask for the attention that she received or did some other agency (being, entity, etc.) bring the attention to her? I find it hard to “spit” on the shadows of a woman who took a vow of poverty and then walked the walk, unless she-and I mean she-was a hypocrite. Please explain.

        Read “The Missionary Position” by Christopher Hitchens. Mother Teresa was a huge hypocrite. Hitchens covers whether or not it’s a case of knowingly being hypoocritical or not and is quite fair about it. Myself, I think she knew damn well that her actions were at odds with her deeds and “philosophy”.

        She took money from Charles Keating, even though that money was generated by Keatings savings and loan scams. She did zip when it came to easing the pain of people who were dying and not just in Calcutta, that’s world wide. Hell, none of the money she was given was ever spent on pain-killers of any kind while she herself made damn sure she got the best possible health care a person can get. Every time she had a bloody heart murmur she trotted off to a clinic to get it checked out.

        Look, I’m not a fan of Bill Gates — Microsoft is a lousy company in a lot of ways, but no one, and I do mean NO ONE can say that Bill and Melinda Gates have been anything other than very thoughtful philanthorpists. They look for solutions that are cost effective and and doable, now, and I applaud them for it.

        Mother Teresa pushed nothing. No solutions, no intelligent use of resources. All she pushed was enduring suffering of any sort until you died. Now you tell me how great that is.

        Intelligent use of resources? Let’s see–she was totally against any birth control, whatsoever and I’m not talking about abortion or the morning after drug. She was against anything other than abstinence and even made a point that abstinence was against God’s plan. Go forth and be fruitful, right? Give me a break.

          Like I said, I do no know a whole lot about her. I will read the book, thanks.

    I, for one, could live contentedly without an explanation from Charles
    Louis, aka Desi. He definitely has an agenda re Blessed Mother Teresa but more likely the Catholic Church is his ultimate goal. Attempting to explain or discuss issues with anyone filled with hate like that is futile. In any event, I think the subject is Anita Dunn and her misguided choice of philosophers in Mao. It has made me wonder if Anita has children. I’ve never wished that anyone didn’t until that thought popped into my mind. And now, I actually pretty much hope that Desi and/or Charles Louis are also childless. Hate begets hate; love begets love.

      Got to answer this.

      Look, I despise Mother Teresa for a number of reasons, but hate? No, just horrified to see her held up as an example of virtue. It makes me sick to my stomach to hear her given excessive praise for a host of things that were at best, not desirable and at worst, purely destructive. Even worse, people don’t question such universal praise. They need to, else we can expect more of the same.

      I’m not against Catholicism, but I am disgusted by unnecessary hypocrisy. An honest person knows that some hypocrisy is necessary in life. The only people who aren’t hypocrites are feral children and the dead, but such huge doses from people like Dunn (and MT) shouldn’t be tolerated, ever.

    Anita probably doesn’t have any children because she scared all her dates off-they were probably afraid that they would get murdered if they were a bad date since her ultimate hero is Mao the murderer.

    But Michaelle, we do know that she’s married (his name escapes me at this moment), but I do believe he’s been given a major post in THE administration (leaked by my favorite person, Glenn.

    Our educational system is in a big crisis. It seems to produce Mao fleas.

    Dunn I guess likes killers and those who pray at the same time since she mentioned mother therea. She must pray that her enemies will just die. She must be praying to satan.

    To one who has lived under Socialism, she looks and sounds so familiar. And dangerous.

    Did Dunn actually spend any time in China during Mao’s regime? What’s in her bio? She waxes so poetic about him, you’d think she was his courtesan. Or court jester.

    Yeah, this “follow your own path” line is so vague and airy-fairy, it can even be applied to butcherers. She is frankly stupid and should not be addressing children or anyone else.

    If Anita Dunn shocks everyone, I urge all to read “Shadow Government”, a collection of short bio’s of all of the 30 some czars whom our president surrounds himself with. As I read it, each got progressively (!!!) worse. One has to wonder how we will get out of this. Just had breaking news that the republican candidate in New York’s 23rd district just dropped out of Tuesday’s race. That’s good news, right?

    Since many are celibraating “the day of the dead” today, then let us bring back to life the late Sen Joseph McCarthy. He would have a field day with this administration. BTW, the late senator is one of my heroes. What was happening when he was alive has been happening continually since then and in truth before him. May Anita Dunn lick all the left overs off of her tainted lips.

    Does anyone know why Anita Dunn keeps flicking her tongue out while making this speech? Just wondering…..

    I was shocked when the video was shown by Glenn Beck.Her love of Mao was not surprising nor unexpected considering her past affilitiations. What shocked me is that someone in the audience did not stand up and walk out or question her comments. Did everyone just sit there transfixed, or was the audience just ignorant of Mao’s bloody legacy? The video was a sad and tragic commentary on the multiculturalism/PC midset of the undereducated audience (teachers, administrators, visitors, parents and students). I guess that textbooks have taken a nose-dive into the cesspool of Progressive and PC ideology.

    Anita Dunn is just another Obama fat mouth the real danger is her husband Bob Bauer.
