Communist Chosen As Parade Grand Marshal

By Greg L | 10 November 2015 | Manassas City | 8 Comments

When you think of the wonderful City of Manassas and all it has to offer, and then think of a person to personify all that, would the name Ed Asner pop into your mind?  Probably not.  Since I expect that many readers might not know why anyone would honor Ed Asner as a demonstration of the greatness of Manassas, here’s a short run-down:

“I think Joe Stalin was a guy that was hugely misunderstood, and to this day, I don’t think I have ever seen an adequate job done of telling the story of Joe Stalin, so I guess my answer would have to be Joe Stalin.” - Ed Asner on what historical figure he’d most like to play as an actor.

Asner’s recorded message to “the 9/11 truth movement”

“There’s a part of it where talking about things trickling down and they have like rich people peeing on poor people,” the producer explained further.

“How disgusting,” Asner said. “It should be reversed.”

“So you don’t remember that?” the producer asked.

“Do you have any money?” Asner asked with a smirk.


“Can I piss on you?” asked the actor.

(exchange between a Fox News producer and Ed Asner regarding Asner’s participation in a controversial video fro the California Teachers Federation)

And he’s certainly a fan of Christians.

“This country has a heavy theological imprint on it. We inserted “Under God” in our Pledge of Allegiance in the 1950s. A recent survey was taken that showed that for all of the extreme right wing pressures brought to bear, when you remove the evangelical percentage from that, the extreme right wing dries up pretty rapidly. The evangelicals create the agitation for right-wing activity.” (source: NewsBusters)

Or actual freedom, apparently. 

“When Castro first took over, we all celebrated enormously. Cuba … had finally found its freedom. … The United States could not tolerate … a little Hispanic country 90 miles off the United States declaring its independence of the United States, so immediately embargoes, everything began to take place, forcing him into the sphere of Soviet influence.”

To sum up, according to the fine folks at Historic Manassas the Greater Manassas Christmas Parade Committee, this is what Manassas is all about:

- The Revolutionary Communist Party and overthrowing the government of the United States
- Cop killers like Kenneth Gay and Mumia Abu Jamal
- The Democratic Socialists of America

Welcome to a brave new world, folks.

UPDATE: I spoke with Marc Olsen who corrected me on the relationship between Historic Manassas, Inc and this parade.  Apparently there is no connection and this parade is operated by a committee and not HMI.  Marc is on that parade committee, but I don’t know who else is.

    He is a commie creep who does not exemplify Manassas values. Since when did Manassas start looking for parade marshals from Hollywood?

    Anonymous; before you publicly make comments about an organization such as Historic Manassas Inc., you should first investigate the real facts and not allow your emotions replace common sense!
    1. HMI has NOTHING to do with the Christmas Parade nor the choosing of the Grand Marshall. The Christmas Parade committee is made of individuals, chaired by Mark Olsen, that is totally separate and apart from HMI. Mark is NOT part of Historic Manassas, Inc.
    2. The HMI Board is made of people that believe in the City and what is has to offer. They volunteer hundreds of hours to made Historic Downtown a better place to live, work, and visit. WHAT DO YOU DO? I know a couple of Board member and none of them are “Wanna Be” and one I know slants pretty far right.
    3. As an organization, HMI does not get involved in politics. HMI is a non-profit organization.
    4. HMI is contracted by the City to run and staff our great Visitors Center; run and Staff our award winning Local Farmers Market; assist with Economic Redevelopment in Historic Downtown; develop, staff, and run 8 major events in Historic Downtown, including the 4th of July celebration, etc.
    I would suggest you visit their web-site @ www.visitmanassas.org. and meet the President and Executive Director of HMI and get the real facts!!!

    No body on the selection committee cared that he is a pinko-commie , they obviously picked him because he was Santa in Elf. The question now is whether he will wear his Santa outfit or Joe Stalin outfit during the parade? And will the committee all ride on the float with him dressed as elves or NKVD officers?
