    Why should this surprise anyone? It’s simply a matter of coming out.

    The AFL-CIO released a video on Twitter on Tuesday which embraced communism and called on workers to seize the means of production. The video by Dan Whelan, who self-identifies as a Marxist roofer, said that the middle class is a fiction.

    Whelan says there are only two classes, those who own the “means of production” and the working class. Those who own the “means of production” are those who own something that produces money and requires workers. The rest are the working class who sell their labor for the wages in order to live.

    Whelan says that the concept of the middle class is a fiction used by the rich and the media. He says that it is used to drive a wedge between various sectors of the working class to keep them from uniting.

    Communism doesn't need unions.

    It would...

    Oh, never mind.
