Since shortly after his election, I have contended that Barack Obama was a Marxist. Some commentators have labeled him a socialist, but not as many as should have. Mostly, with what we refer to as the :”news” media, his leftist politics gets a pass. They didn’t expose him during his election campaign and they will seek to cover up any allegations dealing with his Marxism as the ranting of “low-level terrorists and right-wing extremists.” One writer, in a paper in Illinois put forth the assertion that Obama was not a socialist but a centrist. if you can honestly look at his actions and his associations and label him a centrist you really have blinders on. Welcome to the land of Polyanna.
There has been a small handful of folks out there that have sought to warn the populace about his Marxism but they have been mostly shut out. After all, Obama was the “dream candidate,” the “candidate for hope and change” and so no one wanted to hear anything “negative” about him–and what the media knew they were not about to reveal. So the American electorate, fat, dumb and bemused with “Reality shows” on television, elected a Marxist as president and most of them still don’t realize it. Most of them don’t even know what a Marxist is. They can tell you (by reading the supermarket tabloids) who slept with who last week and who is breaking up with who this week, but the leftist political views of the man they elected president is something that is way over their heads. Mind you, it’s not that they are apathetic, it’s just that they don’t know and they don’t care.
One of those that has been trying to warn the public about Obama’s Marxism is a man named John Drew. Bet you never heard of him. The media is not too keen on giving him and coverage, so that’s not by accident. Mr. Drew is an award-winning political scientist who earned his Ph.D. from Cornell and has taught political science and economics at Williams College.
He recently wrote an article for http:www.americanthinker.com in which he stated: “I had been a leader of the Marxist students at Occidental College myself, starting in 1976 when I formed the precursor of the Democrat Socialist Alliance on campus. The young Obama I knew was a Marxist socialist who would have been quite comfortable with Communist Party members like his Hawaii mentor Frank Marshall Davis, retired domestic terrorists like Bill Ayres, or active socialist politicians like Illinois State Senator Alice Palmer.” Here is a man who knew Obama in college when they were both Marxists. Isnt it interesting that no one who was supposedly looking for information on Obama’s college days ever found this man?
Mr. Drew further continued: “When I talked politics with the young Obama, he expressed a profound commitment to bringing about a socialist economic system in the U.S….which would occur in his lifetime, through a potentially violent Communist-style revolution. In this context, I saw my report on young Obama as a key piece of evidence suggesting a profound continuity in his belief system.”
On another blog spot a writer sought to take Mr. Drew to task for not passing this information along until Obama was almost through the first term of his presidency (let’s hope his first term is his last). Mr. Drew responded: “I tried to get my story into the mainstream media in 2008. I left e-mails for Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly. I posted all about young Obama’s Marxist ideology at the NYT The Caucus Blog Site. I tried contacting the Swift Boat people.” It seems that many of the mainstream “conservatives” were just not that interested in a Democratic presidential candidate that was a Marxist. Unfortunately, if you stop to reflect on it, this tells us a lot about where the leadership of the “conservative” movement is really at. And it doesn’t seem to be where the average American conservative thinks it is. The shabby way the “conservative” leadership is treating Ron Paul is ample evidence of that. What they really want in the White House is another establishment (RINO) Republican–another big government “conservative” and if they can’t get that they’d rather have Obama back than Ron Paul. They realize that Obama is a proponent of big government just like they are.
I have mentioned in a previous article http://www.theobamafile.com which deals with Obama’s Marxist background. The author of that file wrote: “Barack Obama was born of Marxists; mentored by a communist writer and activist; spent his college days hanging around radical activists; worked as a radical community organizer, learning the radical tactics of the communist, Saul Alinsky; attended a radical church; was introduced to Chicago politics by a communist in the home of another communist…and had radicals working on his campaign and in his administration. The fact is, Obama has been around Marxists, of one kind of another, since the age of 12.” So what else can you expect out of him but what you’re getting? There are 93 pages of documentation in the Obama File detailing Obama’s Marxist and socialist activities and associations. I would invite any skeptics to check it out on the Internet. It’s probably one of the reasons Obama wants to cencor the Internet, so this kind of documentation will be unavailable to anyone checking out his background.
Still another blogger commented “How Obama ever got elected is beyond me. It’s more than just the media covering up for him, it’s the pure laziness of the electorate…” This man may have a valid point about the laziness of the electorate. How many voters today are willing to do the homework to find out who these candidates really are and where they are coming from? It’s much easier just to go to the polls and pull the lever down that you’ve been told to pull down. That is consistent with the public school educations of most people today–jus go and do what you’re told like a good little socialist robot. Don’t think and don’t ask too many questions–a nation of programmed sheep!
Well folks, for those of you who have computers, there is lots of material out there now that will tell you about Obama and his Marxist background and proclivities, so don’ t take my word for it. Check it out for yourself. Do a Google search on Obama/Marxist and see what you come up with.
