More recently, we’ve learned of communist radical Van Jones who resigned in the middle of the night to avoid MSM scrutiny. We’ve heard the story of Kevin Jennings, who as a teacher, condoned statutory rape of a 15 year old student, and refused to inform the authorities as he was required to by law.

Today, I was reading Catholic News Agency’s report on Obama’s EEOC nominee, Chai R. Feldblum. In 2006, Feldblum was a signatory to a radical 2006 manifesto which endorsed polygamous households and argued traditional marriage should not be privileged “above all others.”.
Feldblum’s nomination was sent to the U.S. Senate on Sept. 15.
