President Barack Obama feels emboldened. He’s sensing victory in November, so he’s beginning to telegraph the way “Forward.”
“Forward.” was unveiled as Obama’s campaign slogan. It’s a word with strong ties to Marxism and socialism. “Forward!” (note the exclamation point) was a popular name for Communist and radical publications and entities during the 19th and 20th centuries. Obama’s slogan contains a period.
The Washington Times posits that the Obama campaign didn’t look backward into history when it selected “Forward.” as its campaign slogan. That’s not true. The Obama campaign has Marxists and socialists in its midst. It’s inconceivable the Marxists and communists in Obama’s campaign didn’t know the history of “Forward.” The campaign is a masterful marketing organization.
Obama himself is a Marxist. His mentor — and likely biological father — was the communist Frank Marshall Davis. Obama referred to him as “Pops” in his book, Dreams from my Father. Obama’s mother and grandparents — longtime friends of Davis — were also communists. His political career was launched from the home of the communist terrorist Bill Ayers. Obama belonged to the socialist New Party in Chicago in the mid-90s. In 1996 Obama received the endorsement of the Chicago branch of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) in his bid for the State Senate.
I often see it written or hear it said that Obama is stupid, clueless or out of touch. Don’t be deceived. Obama and his minions know what they are doing.
There are now 76 members of Congress who belong to the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC). CPC was founded in 1991 by socialist Bernie Sanders. The DSA has been closely linked to the CPC for years. It hosted the CPC website in the beginning. TheCommunist Party USA identifies CPC members as “allies.”
According to a Pew Research Center poll released in December 2011, 31 percent of Americans view socialism in positive terms. Only 50 percent polled view capitalism in positive terms. A Rasmussen poll from last summer gave similar numbers: 53 percent to 47 percent prefer capitalism to socialism.
For the Obama campaign to boldly select “Forward.” as its slogan indicates Obama and his backers think the battle is won. In their minds, the transformation of the United States to a communist country is as good as done.
