Daily Caller Finds Communist Under BLS Nominee’s Summer Camp Bunk

  commies under the bed

RedsWell so much for your nomination to head the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Erica Groshen, because the Daily Caller has discovered you are a Communist. Maybe you should have considered all your future employment prospects before you sent your children to Jewish Summer Camp!
Yeah, no, we’re not kidding.

Matthew Boyle, world’s greatest reporter, details how Camp Kinderland was started by Jewish Reds (like there was any other kind of Jew in the ’30s, but besides the point!) and Groshen sent her children there, so everybody please bring some wood to place at Groshen’s feet, for the burning!

Order order! Let us hear the evidence against Goody Groshen!

The U.S. House Un-American Activities Committee and New York state investigated the camp for its communist ties in the 1950s — something the camp’s website calls “red baiting witch hunts.”

Well, we can’t imagine why they would call it that. Haven’t they read all Ann Coulter’s books about how Joe McCarthy was the witch-hunts’ real victim?

The investigation prompted Camp Kinderland to make a “legal determination” that it was not a part of the IWO.

Camp Kinderland says on its website that since then, it “has remained to this day an independent entity run as a not for profit organization.”

A likely story. But is there more to it than that the camp was started by a bunch of reds in the ’30s? Not really! But let’s make Obama kill the nomination anyway!

Now that ALG [Americans for Limited Government] has discovered that the Obama nominee sent her kids to that place, the organization is calling on the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) to reject Groshen’s nomination. “Erica Groshen should never have been nominated to head the Bureau of Labor Statistics and her nomination should be summarily dismissed by the Senate HELP Committee,” ALG President Bill Wilson said in the group’s forthcoming press release.

In addition to having sent her kids to a camp with Communist roots, Groshen publicly favors more regulations on small businesses.

Here is the smoking gun!

“Public policy, rather than favoring small business by exempting it from many forms of regulation, should strive to be size neutral,” Groshen wrote in a 1998 report she co-authored.

Drown her and then burn her. “Size neutral” is code for Communist Fascism, and they are coming to take your FREEEEEEEDOM.

    So the campers are all required to make yalmukes with red stars on them as part of the crafts program? Sounds like fun.

    1. finallyhappy

      My daughter's camp had the kids make stickers against companies that used child labor or had unfair practices for adult workers, also they went outside camp David and sang peace songs( whendubya was prez)

    1. rickmaci

      Yah. I mean this is the kind of appointment that makes me want to join the torches and pitchforks crowd and charge up Pennsylvania Avenue.

      I looked her up and sure enough it's all right there on her resume: PhD in Economics from Harvard, currently a Vice-President with the Federal Reserve NY. Not only is she a commie, she is probably a real snob.

  2. SorosBot

    So it comes to this; the wingnuts are actually approvingly citing HUAC, which had been universally seen as one of the ugliest episodes of the 20th Century in America. But they've gone full McCarthy.

      1. SorosBot

        The same thing that happened to Andrew Breitbart! At least paranoid alcoholic rage is bad for the heart and means many of the worst wingnuts aren't with us for too long.

    1. Terry

      They'd also like to:

      - round up the Mooooslims, like was done to the Japanese-Americans during WW2.

      - remove pesky regulations on job creators so that we can return to the awesome working conditions documented so well in the book The Jungle.

      - remove taxes on the ultra rich so as to return the US glories of the 19th Century, when people knew their place in the social hierarchy and stayed there.

      1. SorosBot

        Yeah; they hate democracy, and the constitution, and want to turn this country into a feudal aristocracy, where all undesirables are exterminated.

      2. UnholyMoses

        They're Constitution Originalists, donchyaknow.

        Thus, only rich, white, land-owning males are allowed to vote, Senators are chosen by those same rich, white, land-owning males, women are there to make babies and sammiches, and the blahs are 3/5th of white people.

        That is, after all, the way our glorious Founding Fathers made America. And if it was good enough for them, then by gawd, it should be good enough for us now!

        1. BlueJoubert

          Giving us the term 'blah people' was the only good thing Santorum did in the primary. I will forever be thankful to him for that. It's not easy to create an entirely new adjective. Many have tried and failed. He triumphed brilliantly. And he will live with it for the rest of his life! How delicious is that?

  3. Terry

    Boyle's just jealous that he was never sent to camp as a kid, instead spending his summers parked in front of a TV.

    1. actor212

      He wasn't even that lucky. His funny uncle used to cut open refrigerator boxes and recreate TV shows using the puppetry of his penis.

  4. actor212

    Seriously?

    So bringing up the Stars and Bars as a symbol of institutionalized evil, bad, because you know, ancient history, but bringing up a KID'S SUMMER CAMP FROM 60 YEARS AGO, good?

  5. mavenmaven

    Anyone with a Pete Seeger album in their collection is now ineligible for a government job. This means YOU, commie.

    1. weejee

      Some folk music purists want me to break my Pete Seeger albums because I'm fond of playing "Like a Rolling Stone" on the 000 and even worse, gasp, on a double-humbuckered electric. The tightie-righties don't have a lock on irrationality.

      1. Taj_Mahalo

        You know what's better than amped-up, psychedelicized electric folk music?

        Not a damn thing.

        You rock on, weejee!

    2. James Michael Curley

      I got to shake Arlo Gutherie's hand once and no it was not in the communist summer camp Woody sent his kids to (AKA NYC).

      1. viennawoods13

        I saw Pete and Arlo in concert together once and they closed with that commie song Woody wrote.

    3. shelwood46

      There is a street named Paul Robeson Place here in Princeton, NJ. Obviously, anyone who has ever driven or walked on it is a commie.

      You know who used to spend time in Princeton? Michelle Obama. Also, Ben Bernanke. I bet if you look hard enough, you'll find hundreds of Princeton-existing commies in our government.

  6. actor212

    “Size neutral” is code for Communist Fascism, and they are coming to take your FREEEEEEEDOM.

    Matt Boyle is a size queen. Not surprised.

  7. neiltheblaze

    I'll bet Matthew Boyle thinks Dwight David Eisenhower was a liberal pinko commie too.

    1. Dashboard Buddha

      You may not be too far off the mark. Don't they think that Teddy Roosevelt was some kind of socio-commie?

      1. IonaTrailer

        And Barry Goldwater would be considered a commie too.

        (actual 1960's bumper-sticker: "AU H2O is K-9 P" )

      2. neiltheblaze

        Some of the McCarthyite crowd thought Eisenhower was a Commie appeaser at the very least – because he didn't start WWIII in 1956 when the Soviets rolled the tanks into Hungary.

  8. rickmaci

    Am I the only one that finds it a tad weird that we know where she sent her kids to summer camp but we can't find out where SwissMitt hides his vulture fund money or if he pays any taxes?

    1. UnholyMoses

      Weird? No.

      A sign of how totally fucked up our system is, and how clinically fucking stupid conservatives are?

      Yes. Yes it is.

    1. Dashboard Buddha

      or mine. Shit, I'm not even sure it was a "camp". They just dropped us in the middle of the wilderness with a box of matches and a copy of Atlas Shrugged.

      1. IonaTrailer

        I brought mine up in a hippy commune. They had to fight for that extra bowl of granola.

  9. FakaktaSouth

    I like how saying NOT to FAVOR businesses with the ability to do things that could harm the general public is now somehow akin to fucking an idiot redneck who does not now and will not ever own a business, but OKAY! Our Brave New World is scaring the fuck out of me.

    1. prommie

      Its a perpetual wonder to me when I see no-account loser assholes screaming and waving their firearms all wound up about how someone's taking away from them something that they wasn't ever ever gonna come within a million miles of ever having so it could be taken away anyway.

      Like the fucking Gift and Estate tax, which fucking noone ever has to pay unless they have more than about $12 million or are utterly ignorant.

    2. SorosBot

      But SOLYNDRA! And anyone who acknowledges the reality of global warming is A COMMUNIST WHO WANTS TO DESTROY AMERICAN CAPITALISM!@!

  10. Studebaker Hawk

    Boyle's not too happy about those Arabic numerals BLS uses in its statistics, either.

  11. SorosBot

    The comments, the comments are ugly (and I've stupidly posted a few to counter the idiocy). And here, one shows that they really have completely lost it "Old Joe was right."

    Yes, one of them actually claims that fucking Joe McCarthy was right. Unbelievable.

      1. SorosBot

        It would appear Herbert is still alive, but has had a sex change and goes by the name Angela Merkel these days.

  12. prommie

    So I guess this means that my sworn allegiance to the glorious workers revolutionary movement might be just a little bit of a problem, to some people? I don't think my views are too extreme, I just think we should abolish the concept of "property," and that the workers should control the material means of production.

    1. MittBorg

      With such attitudes, prommie, I'm amazed you ever became a Hind Leg of the Capitalist Running Dog, man. No wonder you're not happy!

  13. Dashboard Buddha

    Holy shit…I was just trying to be clever the other day when I linked to REM's "Exhuming McCarthy", but hell…these fuckers really are digging up that rotting corpse of a paranoid asshole.

  14. BaldarTFlagass

    She sent her kids there? So, it's her kids that are gonna be commies, not her. For Pete's sake.

  15. Oblios_Cap

    Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP)

    Like that committee gives a shit about any of those groups. What a useless bunch of turds.

  16. Biel_ze_Bubba

    I hate it when some teabagging cretin swipes my snark, and actually does something like this before I can post it in jest.

  17. randcoolcatdaddy

    Speaking of witchhunts, when are the Republicans going to be burning actual witches?

    They're promising to take us back to the days of the founding of the nation – what's holding them up?

    1. prommie

      I think its in the GOP Platform that lesbians = witches, so they fall under the homo-hating rubric.

      1. BigSkullF*ckingDog

        Everyone needs to stop throwing goddam buckets of water on me. That only happens in the Wizard of Oz!

      2. SorosBot

        They're too busy fighting the threat of Muslims exercising their First Amendment rights right now, but don't worry, the Pagans are probably next on their minority-religions-to-be-exterminated list.

    2. JustPixelz

      No one is going to burn any witches. Don't be silly. Instead they'll enact laws that make life for women more and more like Hell (or the Handmaid's Tale). Women will merely feel like they're being burned.

  18. RedneckMuslin

    Weren't the repugs going to hold up her nomination anyway just because Obama nominated her?

  19. sbj1964

    Here it is we took the good time to kill every last in- jun in the west,and for what ? So we can have a communist who's redder than any in-jun for a nominee? I am depressed.(I love a good pseudo Blazing Saddles ref. to start the day.)

    1. HarryButtle

      Mr sbj, sir…I hate to see you like this. Would it make you feel any better if me and the boys was to shoot that commie dead?

  20. prommie

    Now without even any exxageration or hyperbole, the fact that I send my little prommie to an honest to gosh Quaker camp where he is indoctrinated with pacifism and a vague non-judgmental commitment to doing unto others as you would have them do unto you, probably would be considered 100% total communist kenyan anti-colonialist fascism by half the fucktards in this country. Wait, I meant half the PEOPLE in this country, the half who are fucktarded.

    1. rickmaci

      Damn you with your "fucktarded".

      I had just taken a sip of coffee when I started reading your post, began laughing with that word and now I have spewed coffee all over my keyboard.

    2. MacRaith

      I'm doing even worse things to my son. He is, at this very moment, at a day camp run by the Harvard Museum of Natural History, where he's learning SCIENCE! Thus disqualifying him for any future public office.

    3. MittBorg

      That's great. At least PrommieJr is insulated from the horrible hatefulness of these morans we have to share breathables with. For now anyway.

      I worry all the time about the kids I know who are nice, sweet kids being raised by nice, liberal lefty parents. WTF is going to happen when they go out into Teh Wurld and encounter these rabid loonies?

    1. prommie

      This is the best "you know who else" ever!

      I nominate this for a Wonkette award for "Best Flogging of a Dead Horse Meme."

  21. elburritodeluxe

    She should have sent her children to Republican Patriot America Summer Camp! There, friendly counselors like former Idaho Senator Larry Craig and former Congressman Mark Foley teach valuable skills for tomorrow's young patriots.

  22. arihaya

    no offense, Daily Caller just preffer that the Jews send their kids to summer camps with "Arbeit Macht Frei" written on its gate,

    just like in the good old days

  23. Mort_Sinclair

    Sadly for Dr. Groshen, she must actually claim me as a family member. Complete straight talk here: she is one of the finest, smartest, loveliest, warmest people one could ever hope to meet, and I'm proud to be able to say, "Hey! That's my sister-in-law!" She's actually a person of limitless integrity–imagine that! The Daily C[r]awler is a font of crackpottery, but on the upside hardly anyone of consequence reads it. If her nomination gets killed over a $20 contribution to the Working Families Party and the Jewish camp they send their kids to, well, this nation is lost, lost, lost. WTF?

    1. prommie

      Now you have totally fucked her chances, once the fucktards know she has a relative who posts on the scabrous violent Trig-Palin-bashing vile den of commies that is Wonkette. Seriously, delete, make it go away.

      1. actor212

        No one's ever held an inlaw up against liberals.

        Great grand uncles, yes, inlaws, no. That means conservatives would have to defend the same family members twice.

  24. prommie

    Sometimes just when you are feeling so down and depressed at the relentlessness of the meanness and ignorance and sadness in the world, there comes along a story that shows you another side of the human experience, something to restore your faith the in basic decency of the human heart, the triumph of love over all the viciousness and hate: http://gizmodo.com/5927083/roadkill-experiment-sh

    Oh, wait, that story just makes it 10 times worse. Sorry.

    1. SorosBot

      The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping.

    2. SorosBot

      Oh, and sorry to reply twice, but here's a shocker:

      • 89 percent of the 6 percent were SUV drivers.

      So yes, almost all socio- and psychopaths drive SUVs.

      1. bobbert

        That 89% may be biased by the fact that the fake target critters were on the shoulder, or as many SUV drivers like to think of it, "off-road".

  25. GeorgiaBurning

    With China now a capitalist society, the task of keeping world communism alive falls to North Korea, Cuba, and the Republicans. I'd shout "LOSERS!" but there are crazies and nukes involved.

      Santa exploits the elven worker in sweat shop conditions — he is no Vanguard of the Proletariat.

    Jesus, can't the wingnuts ,make up their mind? Did Saint Ronnie give the commies a glorious defeat or not?

  27. flamingpdog

    It's almost lunchtime on the East Coast and only one blog post? Somebody forgot to set the Wonkette alarm clocks or did everybody but the editrix get laid* at teh Wonkette?

    OFF, I meant OFF!

  28. prommie

    Fuck McCarthy (he was always my least favorite Beatle anyway), the GOP is also resurrecting the fictional corpse of General Jack D. Ripper, and opposing the flouridation of water (the most monstrous conspiracy ever!)
    Gen. Jack D. Ripper: You know when fluoridation first began?
    Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: I… no, no. I don't, Jack.
    General Jack D. Ripper: Nineteen hundred and forty-six. 1946, Mandrake. How does that coincide with your post-war Commie conspiracy, huh? It's incredibly obvious, isn't it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual. Certainly without any choice. That's the way your hard-core Commie works.

  29. Fraudulently_Joe

    Prolly the latter, I had that problem earlier. I also suspect it's because many spam filters, by default, filter out the secret word hidden inside each and every so[redacted]t.

    1. SorosBot

      Yeah, I've had several comments auto-deleted that mentioned name brands of boner juices, and other words or phrases that are frequently used by spam bots; it's just the anti-spam filter going a little overboard.

      1. Fare la Volpe

        name brands of boner juices

        Boners come in juice now? And here I though too much pulp was awful.

  30. GorzoTheMighty

    I saw somewhere on the intertubes that Dr.Groshen once saw the film "Matewan". Not sure it is true but needs to be fully investigated. For security purposes.

    1. prommie

      I had a friend who was smart enough to join the IBEW while I was wasting time and money going to college. They made all the apprentices come to the union hall and watch Matewan as part of their training. True fact; I have loved the IBEW the mostest ever since I learned that.

  31. Self-Uploader

    BTW, there are/were other kinds of Jewish summercamps besides commie ones. Myself, I went to zionist summer camp (really, no snark, true story). At color war the teams were of course the blue and the white and themed with one side being HaGannah and the other Irgun.

  32. James Michael Curley

    Dearest CommieGirl;

    I really appreciate that you have been illustrating some of your posts with classic photographs. I can not recall the photog of that picture above. I want to think Dorothea Lange but the perspective is a little off.
