Is Obama A Socialist?
Obama selected the 194th birthday of Karl Marx to kick-off his “Forward” campaign. It really makes sense, given his new campaign slogan — “Forward”
Is there a link?
The slogan “Forward!” reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism. Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name “Forward!” or its foreign cognates. The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications.
So far Romney has been reluctant to call Obama a socialist. “I don’t use the word `socialist,’ or I haven’t so far,” Romney told CNN in an interview last year. “But I do agree that the president’s approach is government-heavy, government-intensive, and it’s not working.”
One thing I can say about Obama — he is honest about his views and convictions — even if the media distorts them in an effort to help him get elected.
If the media honestly presented his views and true beliefs — Obama would get chased out of the country for the socialist that he is.
