The ongoing revelations of the intimidation of conservatives executed by Obama’s IRS and FEC agencies are still coming to light but an interesting wrinkle to the story is the close relationship between CNN and NBC/MSNBC and those inside the administration perpetrating that intimidation.

NBC/MSNBC had recently hired former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn as an on-air analyst to comment on what is going on in Washington today. CNN has also featured Dunn as a panelist from time to time. Both did so ostensibly because Dunn is one of those most involved in the Washington scene and is a major player as a K Street lobbyist.

Dunn is a key operative at the well connected SKD Knickerbocker, a DC-based campaign communications group, and is also intimately connected to many other firms and lobbying efforts.

In fact, Dunn raised eyebrows during the 2012 presidential election when it was discovered how integral she was as a consultant for firms lobbying the administration even as President Obama was then claiming, as he has claimed for years, that he was eliminating lobbyists in his administration and “changing business as usual” in DC.

Hmm..., Does she continue to check with Mao's "Little Red Book" like a good Marxist?

Anita Dunn: Why is being a fan of Mao more acceptable than being a fan of Hitler?



By: Erick Erickson
October 15th, 2009


Following up on Moe’s post you just cannot parody these Obama appointees.

Anita Dunn is Barack Obama’s Communications Director.

She tried starting a war with Fox News that left even leftwing commentators scratching their heads calling Obama a wimp. Claiming that Fox News is part of the right wing echo chamber, Dunn ran to CNN to complain about Fox News not offering sexual favors to Obama like . . . well . . . CNN and the other networks.

How dare it maintain its integrity!?!

Well, thanks to our friend Glenn Beck, we have Anita Dunn on tape declaring her favorite philosopher is Mao — the Chinese Hitler. Mao led the communist revolution in China and became China’s dictatorial and insanely paranoid leader.

The subject is Anita Dunn and attempting to obfuscate the subject by bringing someone else in is ludicrous.
