Confronting Anita "Mao Tse" Dunn - by David Swindle

We won't let you off the hook for praising a communist mass murderer.

The creation and defense of a tolerant, inclusive society was the Founding Fathers’ objective. They wrote it into the Constitution.

However, to maintain a tolerant society, there is something that we cannot tolerate: intolerance. Ideologies which seek to dominate over others cannot be allowed to grow.

My dear friend and colleague Jamie Glazov has recently put forth an interesting proposition: Anita Dunn must be held accountable for her comments praising communist killer Mao Tse-Tung. This issue cannot just be allowed to die down.

In promoting Mao as anything but history’s greatest mass murderer, Dunn was promoting intolerance. She was promoting control and domination. This cannot be tolerated.

Is it a coincidence that Dunn both chose to reference Mao and head up the Obama administration’s anti-Fox efforts? Of course not. In a tolerant society the challenges of political opponents like a handful of Fox News’ commentators would be answered. They would not be marginalized. But such a society is not one that Dunn appears to champion.

As such NewsReal is launching its “Chairman Dunn: Stand-Up Comedian” campaign to keep this issue going until Dunn is held accountable for her words and actions. This page will serve as an archive for all of our previous Anita Dunn/Chairman Mao coverage as well as those to come.
