    American Communism is an ideology based off the American Communist Party (CPUSA). American Communism is a Marxism-Leninist ideology with anti-interventionist, pro-worker, internationalist, pro-LGBTQ+, pro-minority feminist, and anti-bigotry policies.

    American Communism can also be the beliefs of candidates/members of the Communist Party such as William Z. Foster, Earl Browder, Charlene Mitchell, and Gus Hall. The American Communist Party was founded in 1919 by C.E. Ruthenberg.

    Personality

    American Communism is very Progressive and supportive of equal rights, and is often seen at Black Lives Matter protests or at the Women's March. He hates Fascism and American Republicanism, but panders to Democratism. He angers his Leftist comrades by endorsing Democrats and is often seen as a "Red Liberal". He regularly draws swastikas on American flags and/or replaces them with his own communist version. He rambles about his made up country called the USSA, which annoys his friends greatly

    History

    Willian Z. Foster was the first candidate for the CPUSA, and was the nominee for the 1924, 1928, and 1932 election. Earl Browder was the nominee for the 1936 and 1940 election. In 1948, the Communist Party endorsed Progressive Henry A. Wallace for president, and endorsed Progressive Vincent Hallinan for president during the 1952 election. In 1968 the Communist party returned to nominating its own candidates and choose Charlene Mitchell as a nominee. From 1972-1984, Gus Hall was the Communist candidate for president. After 1984, the Communist Party went dormant, and hasn't had a candidate since. In 2016, the Communist Party endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton for president, and endorsed Democrat Joe Biden in 2020 for president, upsetting many Leftists.

    The Communist Party of the United States (CPUSA) turns 90 this year. During these decades, the capitalist class (through its intellectuality, two media outlets and the government) accumulated a countless number of slanders against the CPUSA. As a result, only a minimal percentage of the population has anything to do with the true history of the game. The communists knew that the North American bourgeoisie would always see its main domestic threat defeated and, therefore, their attempts to slander, repress and destroy them would not cease. William Z. Foster, in 1952, when the bourgeoisie was carrying out its toughest campaign to destroy the party, wrote a History of the Communist Party in the United States, the definitive document to outline the reality of the party. The true history of the party bears no resemblance to the slander of the bourgeoisie and its lackeys.

    Foster explains that the first origins of the party are located just before the official date of its founding in 1919. The first Marxists in the United States were the majority of German immigrants who followed the defeat of the 1848 revolutions in Europe. Some, like Joseph Weydemeyer (a comrade of Marx and Engels), played an important role in the abolition of slavery. Organized Marxists supported Abraham Lincoln and the newly created Republican Party in the critical elections of 1860. Men, like Weydemeyer (a former artillery officer in the Prussian army), supported him in the Civil War. Marx also corresponded with Lincoln and asked for the emancipation of slaves and the creation of African-American brigades to help defeat the slave regime in the South. The Union's victory in the Civil War constituted a bourgeois democratic revolution and was hailed as a progressive war by Marx, Engels and Lenin.

    After the Civil War, American Marxists were active in numerous political organizations, such as Primeira Internacional (that is, the International Workers' Association) or the Partido Socialista do Traballo. They also actively participated in the creation of unions and helped organize important unions, both of which were severely repressed by the bourgeois regime (often unscrupulous). The foundation of the Socialist Party of America (SPA) between 1900 and 1901 and, a little later, the organization Workers Industrialis do Mundo (which was originally Marxist, before being taken over by anarchists), was laying the foundations of a political tendency (a left of SPA) which, finally, becomes the Communist Party.

    The struggle between the left and right factions of SPA led to the creation of the Communist Party at first. Controversy revolved around various issues. The SPA leaders, right-wing and “centrist”, refused to put into practice the resolutions approved by the party condemning the First World War. The leaders of the right-wing faction also sought class collaboration rather than class loita, defending bourgeois democracy against the dictatorship of the proletariat, and wanted to ally themselves with the right-wing and opportunist Second International and not with the recently created Third International. The militants of the left faction defended the October Revolution and Marxism-Leninism. The SPA's internal national elections of 1919 were won in problems by the left, but the rightist leadership led by Hillquit and Berger refused to recognize the results, expelling two SPA militants in part to cling to power.

    After being expelled, some members of the left faction (such as John Reed) did not want to resign from the SPA and occupied their seat at the party convention on August 30, 1919 in Chicago. To dereitista addresses we call the police to expel them. To the left he abandoned SPA on August 31, 1919 and formed the Communist Party of America. On September 1, 1919, another left-wing group ex-SPA of Michigan created the Communist Party of America. These two communist parties, at the same time, ended up merging into one organization.

    The two new parties had to immediately confront the repression and terror of the bourgeoisie, with the Palmer Raids, in October 1919, being the first significant attack. The bourgeois government of the United States, which sought to “make a safe world for democracy” in World War I, nevertheless imposed terrorist repression against American workers. It is estimated that 10,000 people were arrested, with charges filed against two seus fogares in the middle of the night, including the majority of two leaders of two new communist parties. Malia or bourgeois terror, the two parties came together in May 1921 (a previous attempt at unification in May 1902 failed).

    The party, called the Partido dos Obreiros de América (WPA) in 1925, tried to spread its work among the daily masses of the masses. The different languages of the federations helped two immigrants in the organizations, because these federations were mainly composed of immigrants who spoke their native languages and the publications were also written in those languages. The WPA was very involved in the union organization, malice or bourgeois terror directed against the organized and fighting workers. The WPA also participated in the Education Union League, which helped build a left-wing coalition within two unions.

    In 1923-1924, there was a serious attempt to build a broad workers' and farmers' party, which revolved around progressive Senator Robert LaFollete and his independent candidacy for president in 1924. The WPA participated in this movement, which was ultimately destroyed by the union leaders. of dereita, linked these years to two parties defending the capitalist system. The WPA also nominated William Z. Foster for president in 1924, the first communist candidate for President of the United States, managing to be present in 13 states and obtaining 33,316 votes.

    The WPA loitated against the intense racism and reactionary terror of the Jim Crow regime in the South. After studying the works of Lenin and Stalin on the national question, the WPA recognized that the African American population constituted an oppressed nationality (and, therefore, had the right to self-determination), which was something that previous left-wing parties never defended. The communists attempted to increase the number of African American members in unions and the WPA.

    The trocou party of nome, in 1925, to become the Workers' Party (Communist). In the mid-20s, there was a serious opportunistic threat from chegou rights in the form of Jay Lovestone. The essence of Lovestone's right-wing opportunism was the typical bourgeois argument for “American exceptionalism.” Specifically, he maintains that American capitalism was not heading toward a crisis. Finally, he attempted, without success, to divide or split. The onset of the Great Depression in 1929 soon discredited his point of view. Lovestone also attempted to establish an opportunistic alliance between rights and Soviet traitor, Nikolai Bukharin.

    The real push of the 1930s began at the end of 1929, the Great Depression, the most important capitalist economic crisis. The communists turned to crisis, and repudiated Lovestone's theories about bourgeois prosperity. The party was strongly involved in the mass organizations of workers (employed and unemployed) and peasants. Also many more loitas and campaigns, including women, youth and African Americans. In 1930, the party changed its name to the Communist Party of the United States.

    William Z. Foster ran as a communist candidate in the presidential election of 1932. James W. Ford, an African American and former steel worker, was the vice presidential candidate. The communists showed up in 40 states, with a result of 102,991 votes (the best result of the party in any presidential election at that time). Franklin D. Roosevelt, of the Democratic Party, was elected president in these elections.

    In the 1936 elections, reactionary forces rallied to Alfred Landon's candidacy to defeat President Roosevelt. Landon had absolute support for two bourgeois media outlets and was the most beloved reactionary press magnate Randolph Hearst. The policy of the Communist Party was to support Roosevelt's loita against the most reactionary sections of the big bourgeoisie. He also combated the illusion that the bourgeoisie tried to spread among workers through the New Deal reforms, while trying to hope for maximum benefits for the working class from these reforms. The party, however, could not give full support to Roosevelt, and presented Earl Browder for president and James W. Ford for vice president. The communist candidates were present in 34 states and obtained 80,181 votes.

    The Committee of Industrial Organization (CIO), created in 1935, was the biggest step forward taken in the USA by the labor movement. The Communist Party plays a key role in organizing the movement for the creation of grassroots industrial unions. By force of the left, the CIO during the first decade of its existence was the result of the strong organization of communist poles of workers and militants on picket lines.

    Without these successes, the growth of the fascist threat throughout the world influences the political situation. The VII Congress of the Communist International, in 1935, approved frontier policies that would unite all democratic elements (workers, peasants, intellectuals, small businessmen, communists, and others) ready for a common struggle against fascism. Popular anti-fascist fronts govern the French and Spanish states.

    The Spanish State, or legitimately elected government on the popular front, was quickly attacked by fascism. Since July 1036, Franco, leader of Hitler and Mussolini, has led an uprising in Morocco. The USA, Great Britain and France advocate a false position of “neutrality”, refusing to sell war supplies to the Republic. Namentres, Hitler and Mussolini provide Franco with large quantities of troops, artillery and planes. In order to prevent the triumph of fascists, the communist parties around the world offer all their support, including troops.

    The International Brigades are made up of communists and other anti-fascist leaders from Europe, America and elsewhere. The CPUSA is the Liga da Mocidade Comunista organization and sends 3,000 soldiers, including non-party militants, to join the Republic. On January 6, 1937, the Abraham Lincoln Battalion formed, and shortly after the George Washington Battalion. You two joined later.

    The African Americans, who numbered several hundred in the North American troops, were fully integrated into the combat forces (most of them became officers). This contrasted with the US military during the Jim Crow era. The North American brigades heroically fought in the Brunete offensives, in Jarama, Belchite, Fuentes de Ebro, Teruel, in the Ebro offensive, and in many other battles. Two 3,000 volunteers, about 1,500 died. Other international battalions also suffered heavy casualties. Mali bravely resisted, the fascists won (thanks to the Western arms embargo). Foster points out that North American communists should feel proud of the active role that their party plays in the defense of the Republic, which constitutes the most glorious achievement of the entire life of the party.

    The international communist movement was practically condemned by the Munich Pact, where the leaders of Germany, Italy, Great Britain and Italy (including the famous English conservative, Neville Chamberlain) agreed that Germany should take the Southeast, that is, Czechoslovakia. Earlier that year, Hitler's Wehrmacht took over Austria. After the betrayal of the English and French in Munich and their refusal to create a strong defensive alliance, the USSR and Germany signed a non-aggression pact in 1939. British imperialism clearly wanted Germany to attack the USSR. The pact gave the USSR an additional 22 months to arm itself, which, finally, proved decisive in winning the war.

    Namentres, or CPUSA, fought the so-called “isolationists” (republicans, right-wing democrats and small fascist groups), who were essentially pro-Hitler reactionaries and wanted the Nazis to attack the USSR. As such, they also opposed Roosevelt's pro-British stance, while calling for an international alliance as he advocated for the USSR.

    The party grew considerably during the years before the war. Foster declared that "particularly useful for the party during those years were the books The Fundamentals of Leninism and History of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, by Stalin, and also the writings of Georgi Dimitrov." The party will learn to unite and guide the masses in its current communities, something fundamental for its influence and, ultimately, its militancy.

    Houbo also attacks the polo party Dies Committee(1) in the pre-war years. A reactionary law passed in 1940, Voorhis Act, deprived the Communist Party of its right to international affiliation. The CPUSA dissolved its affiliation with the Communist International to avoid being punished by that law.

    After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States officially entered World War II. The CPUSA had supported a two-world war against fascism since the Nazi attack on the USSR on June 22, 1941. The party's position was full support for Soviet and English military efforts against Hitler. The party, in a statement dated December 7, 1941, stated: "The Communist Party promises its loyalty, its conscious work and the last drop of its blood in the defense of our country against the greatest threat of its entire existence." It concluded with the statement: "All for National Unity!, all for victory over Escravista fascism!" The number of communists who joined the armed forces was 15,000. Many of them became officials and other decorated men, such as Robert Thompson, Alexander Suer and Herman Boettcher. Moitos never returned.
