It’s been four years and the mainstream media still refuses to address the fact that Barack Obama is a Marxist. In fact using that word gets you branded as a crazy (guilty but not on this issue) and someone who uses divisive "tone.
Some who brand Obama Marxist use as their evidence his policies such as the takeover of the domestic auto business, Obamacare, "redistribution of income" etc. Others examine his associations, from Frank Marshall Davis and Bill Ayers to people he hired such as Van Jones and Rev. Jim Wallis. While valid, the examples above are purely circumstantial.
I use a simpler and more direct method of proving my case. When the President was running for the Illinois State Senate, not only did he run with the endorsement of a local socialist organization, but also he signed a contract with one of them, The New Party. The party was a Marxist Political coalition. This was not guilt by association thing. Senator Obama sought out their nomination. He was successful in obtaining that endorsement which required that he sign a contract with the group.
By 1996, Obama had become a member of the New Party. Who says so? Well the Chicago Democratic Socialist Party and the New Party Said so, at least back then they did:
New Ground 42 (New Ground is the Official Newsletter of the Chicago Democratic Socialist Party) September October 1995. Obama signed a contract promising an visible and open relationship with the Marxist New Party:
What is the Proof that Obama actually signed the contract? He got the endorsement.
New Ground 46 May-June 1996 DSA Endorsement:
New Ground 47 July August 1: New Party Endorsement:
New Ground 45 March - April, 1996 Obama is a panelist at Town Hall meeting of Chicago Democratic Socialist Party, the University of Chicago Democratic Socialist of America, and The University Democrats. Obama calls for redistribution of Income:
A Town Meeting on Economic Insecurity: Employment and Survival in Urban America By Bob Roman Over three hundred people attended the first of two Town Meetings on Economic Insecurity on February 25 in Ida Noyes Hall at the University of Chicago. Entitled "Employment and Survival in Urban America", the meeting was sponsored by the U of C DSA Youth Section, Chicago DSA and University Democrats. The panelists were Toni Preckwinkle, Alderman of Chicago's 4th Ward; Barack Obama, candidate for the 13th Illinois Senate District; Professor William Julius Wilson, Center for the Study of Urban Inequality at the University of Chicago; Professor Michael Dawson, University of Chicago; and Professor Joseph Schwartz, Temple University and a member of DSA's National Political Committee....
New Ground 69 March-April 2000 Endorsement For Congress:
Need a different source? How about Progressive Populist November 1996?
Or Columbus Free Press? (The New Party's Newsletter):
Here's another little bit of history, not only was ACORN involved with the New Party but so was the SEIU (SEIU 880 was itself an ACORN offshoot). The fact that Obama received the New Party’s endorsement in his first run for office cannot be dismissed as insignificant. On the contrary, Obama’s ties to the New Party and the New Party’s backers at ACORN and the SEIU are long-standing, substantial, and reveal a great deal about his personal political allegiances.
Being a socialist, that doesn't Barack Obama murdering terrorist like his buddies Bill Ayers or Rashid Khalidi, it doesn't even make him a hater of this country like Jeremiah Wright. It does however mean he believes in a certain political philosophy that Americans have the right to both know about and understand. After all it provides the foundation on which his policies rest.

Yesterday’s release of the Barack Obama/Derrick Bell Harvard tape was seen by many as another example of the President’s long history associating with radicals. There is another interpretation however. When Obama urged people to open up their hearts and minds to Bell it was another case of him “cozying” up to an Anti-Semite. Understand we are not talking about people who are Anti-Israel (although there is a huge crossover of the two) but people who regularly use Anti-Semitic stereotypes or more direct derogatory comments about Jews.
Here are some examples
Derrick Bell: Bell was a teacher of Critical Race Theory (CRT), which focuses on the intersection of race, law and power. In their book Beyond All Reason: The Radical Assault on Truth in American Law authors Daniel A. Farber and Suzanna Sherry explain that CRT believes:
that Jews and Asians enjoy an unfair share of wealth and status. Thus, the necessary normative implication of the radical theory is that steps should be taken to redress the balance more in favor of white gentiles. In addition, the radicals cannot easily explain Jewish and Asian success. Although benign explanations for this success are available, they are logically inconsistent with radical multiculturalism; consequently, the radicals would be forced to explain Jewish and Asian success by deploying theories that parallel historic forms of anti-Semitism.Jews they believe, have an ulterior motive for everything. For example, in his novel “The Space Traders” Bell argued that Jews help blacks so they themselves won’t become the target of bigotry, and called Anne Frank “the symbol of Jewish hypocrisy.”
Merrill A. McPeak: Co-Chair of Obama’s 2008 Campaign, McPeak is a believer in that old “Jews control the government” meme. In one interview he suggested U.S. politicians are afraid of Jewish voters in Miami and New York City and that American Jews are the "problem" impeding a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Chuck Hagel: When Obama was first elected, Hagel a Senate friend was believed to be the president’s first choice for Defense Secretary. Another believer in the nefarious “world wide Jewish conspiracy,” Hagel was once quoted as saying
Khalid al-Mansour, the Nation of Islam and Saudi Arabia Did you know that Louis Farrakhan’s attorney Percy Sutton, Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal and Anti-Semitic Black Muslim Khalid al-Mansour were instrumental in getting the future President into Harvard?
Zbigniew Brzezinski: The President once called Brzezinski someone I have learned an immense amount from", and "one of our most outstanding scholars and thinkers. Back in back in 2007 Brzezinski was schooled the future president on foreign policy The former National Security Adviser to Jimmy Carter famous for helping to create the Taliban, is a Judeophoblic conspiracy theorist, who believes the Jews control U.S foreign policy and Congress.
Al Sharpton: According to the Wall Street Journal, the President turned to Sharpton turned to Sharpton to answer public criticism in the black community over his economic policy. Sharpton helped fan the flames of the Crown Heights Pogrom and was a leader of the anti-Jewish protest that lead to the firebombing of the Jewish-owned Freddy’s Fashion Mart.Sharpton called Freddy's Fashion Mart's Jewish owners "bloodsuckers" and "white interlopers", leading protesters to shout, "We're going to burn and loot the Jews." Just a short time later they got their wish, the store was firebombed and eight people were dead.
Jeremiah Wright: Shortly after Obama took office, the man who’s church the President sat in for 20 years complained about his lack of access to the Oval Office’
“Them Jews ain’t going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter that he’ll talk to me in five years when he’s a lame duck or in eight years when he’s out of office. They will not let him talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is. I said that from the beginning. He’s a politician; I’m a pastor. He’s got to do what politicians do.”And there are plenty more where that came from, including the chairman of his transition committee, John Podesta who is now head of the Center for American Progress (CAP). Both CAP and its “child” organization MMFA have been cited by the Simon Wiesenthal Center for promoting the Anti-Semitic meme that Jews are not loyal to America (investigative reporter Aaron Klein has found more links between the Anti-Semitic CAP and President Obama which you can read here). Then there is Samantha Power the President's Senior Director of Multilateral Affairs on the Staff of the National Security Council.who once complained about critics of the Obama's foreign policy by saying “So much of it is about, is it going to be good for the Jews.”
Many critics of this analysis will call the above, “guilt by association” at least that’s what they did to similar stories in 2008.
Please understand clearly that it is not my contention the President of the United States is an Anti-Semite; I have seen no evidence to that fact. I do contend that he has a nasty habit of associating with Jew-haters.
Why does Barack Obama seem to gravitate to Jew-haters? Is it because he agrees with their hatred, is he unaware, or is he just insensitive? Here is a man who called a Georgetown student because she was smeared by an insensitive misogynistic attack by a radio host, but he accepts associates with and hires Anti-Semites.
