Anita Dunn and Chairman Mao … and Some Perspective

The office of Anita Dunn, White House Communications Director

"So who is Anita Dunn?" you may ask. She is Obama’s White House Communications Director but does have a long history as a Democratic political operative. Dunn was involved in Obama’s Presidential campaign and was the director of communications, policy and research operations for Obama for America. Not only is she a top advisor to Obama but she is also married to his personal lawyer.

She is one of the Obama Administration officials who attacked Fox News by charging that "it's opinion journalism masquerading as news" and that “The reality of it is that Fox News often operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party."

Her notoriety has skyrocketed with the outrageous, indefensible and radical comments that she delivered in a speech before high school students in Maryland. In the speech (as seen in the video below) she stated that:

“The third lesson and tip actually comes from two of my favorite political philosophers: Mao Zedong and Mother Theresa -- not often coupled with each other, but the two people I turn to most to basically deliver a simple point which is: you're going to make choices; you're going to challenge; you're going to say why not; you're going to figure out how to do things that have never been done before. But here's the deal: These are your choices, they are no one else's. In 1947, when Mao Zedong was being challenged within his own party on his plan to basically take China over. Chiang Kai-shek and the Nationalist Chinese held the cities, they had the army, they had the air force, they had everything on their side. And people said, "How can you win? How can you do this? How can you do this, against all of the odds against you?" And Mao Zedong said, you know, "You fight your war, and I'll fight mine.”

The video below is a scathing and insightful assessment and commentary of this entire Anita Dunn situation by Glen Beck. It is well worth watching.
