A Word About Obama and Marxism
Many of you might be wondering if I've gone off the deep end by drawing a connection between what appears to be our future president in Barack Obama, and Marxism. Even Obama himself has been mocking such comparisons, aided and abetted by his fawning media.
The problem is that Obama has no one to blame but himself for such perceptions. Quite frankly, the perception could indeed be reality if you just look at the man's associations, as well as his own writings and public statements. Why people don't get it is astounding.
Obama's church teaches Black Liberation Theology, a known Marxist philosophy. He was there and absorbed Rev. Jeremiah Wright's rantings for 20 years. Obama's closest associates -- despite his current denials -- are among the most hardcore left Marxists possible. Read the philosophy of the Weather Underground and William Ayers and find out for yourself. As an FBI plant within the Weather Underground said in his testimony, this group of radicals fully expected to "eliminate" about 25 million Americans should they eventually grasp the levers of power. All because this huge number of people would be too resistant to the Marxist takeover of our nation. It's all on the record.
Out of Obama's own mouth on National Public Radio, he openly talked about redistribution of wealth --a key Marxist-Socialist principle. He openly criticized America's Founding Fathers and called our Constitution flawed from the beginning. He criticized the liberal Warren Court for not being liberal enough, and for not being willing to sidestep or "reinterpret" the Constitution to advance leftist goals.
Addendum as of 12:32 p.m. I should have also mentioned how, in his writings, Obama openly confessed to cultivating friendships among ultra-left and Marxist professors etc. while in college. He actually used the term "Marxist." Shouldn't that raise a few eyebrows, at a minimum?
Again, it's all on the record for anyone to see if they're willing. But they're not willing. They don't want to see it, or they gloss it over because they've been seduced.
Should he be elected to the presidency, will Obama succeed through smooth talk to transform this nation into a dictatorship of the proletariat? It's hard to say. Once I would have said "no way," but today I am not so sure. He'd have a Congress ready to march in lockstep with him. I am sure there would be roadblocks and resistance in some quarters, but I really fear much of the nation has gone to sleep or are so indolent that they'll let it happen. Interesting things can happen if there is suddenly a national state of emergency.
Just the fact that we're willing to elect someone to the Oval Office who holds, or is strongly influenced by, those philosophies is troubling enough.
