Skip to comments.Marxist Democratic Socialists of America, Helped Obama Win in 2008
Posted on 07/16/2010 4:37:11 PM PDT by Nachum
President Barack Obama has a long history with the U.S.'s largest marxist based organization, Democratic Socialists of America (D.S.A.).
With several thousand members (many of whom are also Democratic Party activists and office holders), and considerable influence in academia, the media, mass "community organizations" and labor unions, D.S.A. has the power to direct or influence hundreds of thousands of activists in the "correct" direction.
Here is hard evidence that D.S.A. threw its entire weight behind their long time ally Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential elections.
From the Democratic Socialists of America National Political Committee Minutes of Meeting of September 13-14, 2008
DSAs main program focus through the rest of 2008 will consist of (1) working to help ensure the election of Barack Obama and (2) continuing work on the Renegotiate NAFTA petition drive.
Work on the Obama campaign will include:
1) email blasts and other communications issuing from the National Office attacking McCain/Palin and explaining the necessity of voting for Obama,
2) encouraging locals to do DSA-day volunteering en bloc for the Obama campaign,
3) circulating pro-Obama/anti-McCain literature that YDS is developing to nonyouth DSA members,
4) encouraging DSA members to write anti-McCain letters to the editor for their local newspapers, and provide them with sample language and tips on getting published;
5) if YDS organizes volunteer efforts for Obama, especially in swing states, urge them to open their actions to a multi-generational component, and if they agree, inform DSA members of the availability of this option;
6) materials from DSA on reasons to support Obama shall reference the Economic Justice Agenda whenever possible. Work on the Renegotiate NAFTA campaign
The motion carried unanimously.Would Obama have won in 2008, without the efforts of D.S.A. and their allies (and self proclaimed Obama "friends") , the Communist Party USA?
IMHO - no.
The list, ping
I reported on this outfit in the 1998 time frame these guys are out to destroy our great country from within!!!!
Haa ha! That’s news?!
The DSA differs from the RATs...How?
Members of the DSA:::::
No kidding. This person has a keen grasp of the obvious.
The majority of Obama voters don’t know the difference between a socialist and big mac,,, they are way more familiar with the latter.
Yeah, and they thought Oboma looked cool on a t-shirt.
Good point,, which is why I think we need to go back to property owners only voters,(or take a test), the rest have no clue!
Electoral tactics are only a means for DSA; the building of a powerful anti-corporate and ultimately socialist movement is the end.
Which is really stupid. Without businesses there are no jobs. No jobs = no tax revenue to Washington. Where will all the freebie money come from? They'll have to start "eliminating people" just to share the few morsels of food still available. When that's gone......cannibalism?
Gee. Great planning democrats - NOT! When they say "and ultimately socialist movement is the end", they really do mean the end - of humanity.
Thank you Israel for saving what's left of the ME.
I blame Bush for refusing to name the DSA as a terrorist organization soon after the passage of the Patriot Act. I don’t know what our security apparatus is for if not to protect us from ALL enemies — foreign and domestic!
Bernie isn't shy about proclaiming he is a Democratic Socialist. In fact, the DSA hosted the CPC web site until exposed.
Nancy Pelosi was a member until she resigned all committees and caucuses to take up the Chairmanship. No wonder she gets along with the President so well.
Obama makes an apparent, if obscure reference to DSA in his 1995 autobiography “Dreams From My Father”.
Discussing his time studying political science at New York’s Columbia University, in the early 80s, Obama reveals that he”went to socialist conferences at Cooper Union and African cultural fairs in Brooklyne.
Speakers often included members of the Communist Party USA and its offshoot, the Committees of Correspondence, as well as Maoists, Trotsyists, black radicals, gay activists and radical feminists.
Barack Obama speaks of “conferences” plural, indicating his attendance was not the result of accident or youthful curiosity.
