In a May 27 WorldNetDaily column about how the horrors of socialism in general and Mao Zedong in particular, David Kupelian writes:
This is even more chilling when one considers that Barack Obama’s former White House communications director, Anita Dunn – who publicly attacked Fox News as illegitimate, called it a wing of the Republican Party and “opinion journalism masquerading as news” – claimed in a speech to students that Mao Zedong is one of her “favorite political philosophers.”
As we've previously detailed when others have done it, this interpretation takes Dunn out of context.Dunn never praised Mao's ideology or excused his atrocities; she was simply pointing out that Mao and Mother Teresa share a similar philosophy about forging your own path in life.
To portray Dunn's remarks as praise of Mao is utterly dishonest. But that's the kind of guy Kupelian is.
