Rubio calls Biden bank watchdog pick a 'communist'

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Friday claimed a Soviet-born Biden nominee whose family was nearly eviscerated by Josef Stalin was a communist unfit to serve in the federal government.

In a Friday tweet, Rubio accused Saule Omarova, who Biden nominated to lead the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and who has been a U.S. citizen since 2005, of being a communist.

"Saule Omarova supports abolishing private bank accounts, using govt to bankrupt energy companies & creating a Soviet style "National Investment Authority," tweeted Rubio, whose parents fled Cuba before the Fidel Castro seized control of the country in 1959.

"She supports communist policies & a communist should not be our Comptroller of the Currency."

12. Not just any Russians.

TFG's best buddy and co-conspirator Putin was a former mid-level KGB officer and member of the Communist Party of the USSR--as an adult. And no doubt some of Putin's pals and TFG's "business associates" were former adult Communists.

Ms. Omarova, on the other hand, was required to join the Communist youth group Komsomol as a child living in the USSR. That doesn't make her a Communist.

Rubio is Red Scare trash whose family may have been involved with the corrupt Batista regime that murdered 20,000 Cubans in seven years. Many from the corrupt Batista gang moved to Florida.

4. Didn't that Senator Kennedy make the same accusation also?

This is just the 'beginning"although hardly) of new red baiting by republicans. This will spread and become more and more common.. Any liberal will be accused of communist tendencies....
and it will spread far and wide..
It will be another excuse for violence by right wing fascist groups....

That is what I think is going to happen...

15. Yeah, that's been going on a long time.. and getting worse...

but I think this is a step way beyond..

Americans "think" they know what communism is. But they have no idea what fascism is.

Where are his real loyalties?

6. Fleeing before Castro means they fled under Bautista

Or that is how I look at it.

11. I thought the "Red Scare" was a disgraceful part of our history...

Why is it that we keep going through similar disgraceful periods of our history?

That is a rhetorical question...

Our education system is built primarily on advancing nationalism by pushing mythology, and not an honest discussion of our history. Joseph McCarthy was certainly a powerful Senator for a time, but he ended up a washed up, broke down, alcoholic (as he should have) because he disgracefully used the fear and ignorance of a nation to persecute people for his own benefit.

Same thing is being done today by the likes of Kennedy and Rubio. They should share McCarthy's fate.
