Imagine, Communists actively and joyfully campaigning for a serious candidate for the Presidency of the United States . Even just four short years ago this would have been unheard of, un-imaginable even.
Shouldn’t someone out there in the serious press be asking the question WHY?
While it’s true the US Communist Party has made no official endorsement of Barack Obama, its members have taken to the streets actively campaigning for him. The party expresses open joy at our current economic situation. That alone speaks volumes about who is better for our country.
And while we have those here, that want to take us there, those that are there are doing all they can to come here. Two Cuban Soccer players just recently defected while in Washington D.C. to participate in a match. They join a long list of others that have taken great risk to come here and enjoy the great freedom we have. According to a Reuters Report by Anthony Boadle ‘Defections have plagued Cuban sports, which have lost dozens of top baseball players, boxers and other athletes in recent years, many seeking lucrative careers in the United States, much to the annoyance of Cuba’s communist authorities.’
Meanwhile, Barack Obama has been endorsed by Cuba . Cuba’s Fidel Castro: “[Obama] the man who is doubtless, from the social and human points of view, the most progressive candidate to the U.S. presidency.” In fact leaders and dictators have been crawling out of the woodwork it would seem, lining up right and left to offer words of support for Obama’s campaign.
North Korea’s Kim Jong-il: “We will see a better relationship between the U.S. and the Korean Peninsula with Obama, who sternly criticizes Bush and who would meet the leader of Chosun without preconditions.”
Nicaragua President Daniel Ortega: “[Obama’s] laying the foundations for a revolutionary change” in America.
“Revolutionary” change. Reagan is most probably spinning in his grave…
Many people would have you not refer to them as ‘communists’. That term has become ‘politically incorrect’ it would seem. About the only real difference, however, is in the spelling, but they think it adds a bit more soothing legitimacy to their cause to refer to it as socialism, not communism. Socialist, that’s the second ‘S’ in USSR.
Steve Bartin, a blogger who has been following Barack Obama’s career and involvement with Chicago socialists uncovered a video of Obama openly campaigning for Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Socialist from Vermont . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIlIpOkRh2A Only fair I suppose. Obama did receive the endorsement of the Chicago branch of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) when he ran for the Illinois senate.
The DSA describes itself as the largest socialist organization in the United States . It’s the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International (SI.) The group has “consultative status” with the UN. And of course it’s the UN that is the focus of “The Global Poverty Act”, an Obama bill, pushed through the Senate Foreign Relations Committee by Sen. Joe Biden, Chairman. That legislation (S.2433) would have the U.S. commit to spending hundreds of billions of tax dollars in foreign aid in order to comply with the “Millennium Goals” established by the United Nations. Hundreds of Billions at a time when our economy is in such turmoil.
Another group tied in with Socialist International is the PES, or Party of European Socialists, to which Howard Dean told that Democrats want to be “good citizens of the world community.”
PSE, according to it’s President Poul Nyrup Rasmussen, met at Democrat headquarters in Washington D.C. with Democrat Party officials and Congressional members, where they agreed to have PES “activist groups” work together with them in various U.S. cities.
Obama was asked by a gentleman in Ohio , “Why do you want to raise my taxes?” Obama’s answer, “I think when you spread the wealth around it’s good for everybody.”
The difference between socialism and capitalism is in how that wealth is spread.
Socialism takes from the hard workers and achievers and gives it to those that don’t earn it for themselves. That’s always the fly in socialisms ointment. Too many put out their hand for their “share” of the wealth, but do nothing to earn that share. That causes those that do work and create that wealth in the first place to not want to go very far out of their way to do any more than they have to. Socialism is self defeating, and it’s failed the world over, yet now this group wants to give it a try here.
Capitalism is all about creating and growing and earning the measure of what your hands or mind creates. What government should be about is creating the opportunity for all that wish to participate in the creation, not taking from those that do and giving to those that don’t. Certainly we should offer a hand to those that truly need that hand, but the democrats/socialists seemly have an open door policy with who qualifies as “in need.”
It’s hard to share wealth that isn’t there.
An article posted in the Gateway Pundit website http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/2008/10/honest-ohio-plumber-tells-cavuto-he.html#links tells us that we shouldn’t be surprised in Obama’s takeaway giveaway socialist philosophy. He was mentored by Frank Marshall Davis, a noted communist. And on page 100 of his book “Dreams From My Father” he tells us:
“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist Professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.”
And on page 122:
“Political discussions, the kind that at Occidental had once seemed so intense and purposeful, came to take on the flavor of the socialist conferences that I sometimes attended at Cooper Union or the African cultural fairs that took place in Harlem or Brooklyn during the summers…”
Another of Obama’s “acquaintances” that has received a good bit of press nowadays is Bill Ayres. Ayres said we’ve nothing to fear by his association with Obama. In 1995 Ayres explained that he was just a “small c communist”. Whew, isn’t that a relief? Vladimir Puntin, now there is a big C Communist. And he’s someone our next President will have to know and understand quite well.
Saul Alansky, the “father” of community organizing and father figure of many radicals of the 60’s wrote in ‘Rules for Radicals’: “Go home, organize, build power and at the next convention , you be the delegates.” It’s a lesson that it would seem Obama has taken to heart.
According to Kyle-Anne Shiver’s article in the American Thinker – Obama’s Radical Revolution: Its Alinsky Root and Global Vision, Shiver tells us “Obama did everything Alinsky prescribed. He went to Chicago , home of Alinski and the place where [Frank Marshall] Davis had worked for the communist revolution. Obama trained at the Industrial Area Foundation, an Alinsky training institute. He organized in Chicago and did voter registration and training for ACORN. He went to law school. He built political alliances. He kept a tight lock on his records and his past.”
“As for Judeo/Christian morals. Forget it Alinsky trained his radicals in the spirit of no-holds-barred methods. In Alinsky’s mind, the American power structure was evil to its core and justified any means necessary to change the “world as it is” into the “world as it should be.”
That vision of how “it should be” is the radicals vision. Does any of this sound familiar, or ring any bells with what’s happening today?
Shiver goes on to say – “Alinsky’s tenth rule of ethics means: “You do what you can with what you have and clothe it with moral garments.” Well, Hello there Reverend…
Right now the left is going on somewhat of a rampage, slashing and shredding and even burning McCain signs, slashing tires and keying cars with McCain bumberstickers. Have you heard about that? I didn’t think so. And if you have I’d be willing to bet it wasn’t on the nightly news. But I’d also be willing to bet that you’ve heard about those limited instances of McCain supporters “rowdiness” at campaign rallies. A rowdiness that pales in comparison to some of what has spewed forth from the left.
For months, no years, we’ve heard the drumbeat of anti-Bush, anti-republican rhetoric from the left. We’ve seen the hand wringing in the press and heard it on the 6 o’clock news. How Bush wanted to steal away our constitution and the only reason for Iraq was the oil. Palin is some kind of Nazi that wants to lock up scared young women that get into trouble and FOX news is the devil in disguise. It’s a continuation of a conditioning that has been going on for quite some time.
The “right”, they tell us, is full of hate and rage, but that it was Bush that planned 9-11 and blew up the levee’s in New Orleans , so they say. And it’s all Bushes fault that our economy is in the shape that it is. Pay no attention to that man behind the mirror, and the fact Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had anything at all to do with it. Pay no mind that it was the democrats that resisted regulating them, and even as the troubles came to light that democrat Barney Frank who now heads the House Banking Committee told us “These two entities – Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – are not facing any kind of financial crises. The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on the companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.”
What affordable housing? It was those “affordable” home loans that some people couldn’t afford in the first place that brought us to where we are today. Barney, the exaggeration was the other way around. This ones on YOU.
“Even though the Soviet system fell and its Marxist “utopia” was clearly revealed as the antithesis of the promise to bring liberation and light to the world, the hope lives on and thrives within the heart of Obama and his followers, and the plan is a global one.” –http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/10/obamas_radical_revolutionits_a.html There are many people convinced that President Bush was a threat to the Constitution of The United States, and to the freedoms and liberties we enjoy. Those people loudly support Barrack Obama right now. But as far as a threat to the Constitution and our freedoms and liberties go, with Obama, these people haven’t seen anything yet.
