Democrat WITHDRAWS Bill to Allow Notorious Communists to Work for California Government

Every once in a while the voice of the people, reason and sanity is heard in Sacramento.  Ultra-Leftist Democrat Assemblyman Rob Bonta presented a bill that would have the support of Russian President Putin—AB 22 would repeal the law that bans Communists from working in the California government.

The Sacramento Bee had this to say, “The Alameda Democrat said he introduced Assembly Bill 22 this session to “clean up” unconstitutional statutory language that made membership in the Communist Party a fireable offense for California public employees. But it generated intense controversy when it came up for a vote on the Assembly floor last week, where several members rose to speak about the pain still carried by constituents who fled the communist regime in Vietnam.”

Of course the Bee called the ban on those wanting to violently overthrow a “red scare”—more fake news from a once great newspaper.  Glad to see that somethings scares a Democrat.  The good news is that as long as we allow BlackLivesMatter and other radical, vicious and bigoted organizations and their members working for government, no one is safe.  At least the obnoxious Communist ban is still in place, even as a symbolic statement against tyrann

Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Oakland) has decided not to move forward with AB 22 as a direct result of his conversations with the public and constituents.

Assemblymember Bonta expressed appreciation to his colleagues including Assemblymembers Ash Kalra and Kansen Chu for their consultation and guidance on this issue.

While AB 22 is a technical ‘clean-up’ bill that would remove statutory language that was ruled unconstitutional 50 years ago by the U.S. Supreme Court in United States v. Robel, 389 U.S. 258 (1967), it also brought up real pain for some.

“Many expressed these concerns to me,” said Bonta.  “Through my conversations with veterans and members of the Vietnamese-American community, I heard compelling stories of how AB 22 caused real distress and hurt for proud and honorable people. For that, I am sorry.”

“I appreciate the candor and heartfelt expressions of concern.  As a member of the State Assembly and throughout my career as a public servant, I know that listening is just as important as speaking.  I have worked to bring communities together and promote the values of justice, inclusion, equity and opportunity.”

Assemblymember Rob Bonta represents the 18th Assembly District, which includes the cities of Oakland, Alameda, and San Leandro and is the Assistant Majority Leader and Chair of the Asian Pacific Islander (API) Legislative Caucus.
