Life long Marxist Luis Ignacio Lula da Silva, or “Lula,” was president of Brazil until he was “term limited” out in 2010. He then handed his “crown” to former Marxist-Leninist urban terrorist Dilma Rousseff.

Fidel Castro, “Lula”

In the early 1990s, “Lula” and Fidel Castro established the Sao Paolo Forum, a regular gathering of Latin American communist, terrorist, socialist and leftist political parties. This alliance laid the groundwork for the almost total conquest of Latin America by the left since that time.

Incredibly, rather than being treated as the hardcore revolutionary that he is, “Lula” has been courted by the U.S. as an ally against the “extremist” Hugo Chavez of Venezuela!

Since at least the early 1980s, “Lula” was courted and coached by forces within the U.S. left.

Stanley Gacek

Stanley Gacek is a labor attorney and AFL-CIO official, responsible for the Federation’s relations with Latin America and the Caribbean.

Since 1981, he has served as a special advisor on North American affairs to the Brazilian Workers’ Party and has been a friend and adviser to “Lula” for the entire period.

Gacek is a long time member of the U.S.’s largest Marxist organization, Democratic Socialists of America and has represented that organization at the 2003 gathering of the Socialist International in Sao Paolo, Brazil.

Since August 1, 2006, Stanley Gacek has been the Associate Director of the newly restored International Department of the AFL-CIO, the largest national trade union central in the United States.

From 1997 until 2005, Gacek was Assistant Director for International Affairs. Prior to his position at the AFL-CIO, Gacek was Assistant General Counsel to the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union.

Barack Obama, John Sweeney

Gacek was brought into the AFL-CIO in 1997 by then president John Sweeney, coincidentally another member of Democratic Socialists of America.

John Sweeney has been a long time supporter of Barack Obama, who has an almost 30 year history with Democratic Socialists of America.

On February 15, Barack Obama awarded comrade John Sweeney the Medal of Freedom in a special ceremony at the White House.

Revolutionaries are an incestuous bunch – they have to be. Their vision will never win the majority in the West, so they work to infiltrate the system – feeding off each other, promoting each other, a “Marxist Mafia” gradually consolidating power, while the world blithely goes about its business.
