Communists, socialists, Marxists, Oh my!
WorldNetDaily ^ | February 24, 2011 | Aaron Klein

Posted on 02/28/2011 12:41:11 AM PST by Christus_Rex

One of the main groups organizing the Wisconsin union protests is a spinoff from an activist academy modeled after Marxist community organizer Saul Alinsky and described as teaching tactics of direct action, confrontation and intimidation.

President Obama once funded that academy - the radical Midwest Academy. He has been closely tied to the group's founder, socialist activist Heather Booth.

Obama also is closely tied to scores of other radicals behind the Wisconsin opposition protesting Gov. Scott Walker's proposal for most state workers to pay 12 percent of their health care premiums and 5.8 percent of their salary toward their own pensions.

Walker's proposal reportedly would save $300 million in the next two years for a state that faces a financial crisis amid a $3.6 billion deficit..

A slew of radical groups and unions have been organizing the protests against Walker's proposal as well as counter protests to a recent tea party rally in support of the governor's plan.

Obama's own political machine has aided in organizing protests in Wisconsin

Counter protests were led in part by radical groups like Veterans for Peace, Freedom Road Socialist Organization, and the Workers World Party.

I just call him a Communist. Thanks to the MSM and uninformed ignorant voters we got one in the White House and all that goes with it. They are most dangerous when the power slips away

Marxist theory is why we are inexplicably hearing about the Koch brothers. There has to be a capitalist in the struggle. The Koch brothers have NOTHING to do with the situation in Madison, but for the simplistic Marxist theory to work, there has to be some sort of capitalist oppressor working against the people. The fact that the Union is the true fatcat capitalist bad guy in the Wisconsin situation does not fit the Marxist narrative, so they had to invent an evil bogeyman. The truly oppressed in Wisconsin is the non- citizen.

If Obama was a Marxist his goal would be to purposefully, deliberately bankrupt America and destroy the private sector free market capitalist economy.

If this were his intent, what would he have done differently thus far during his presidency?

A real question, please give me a real answer.

If this goal were reached, the socialist would have America’s untouched oil reserves, the oil industry would be nationalized. The environmental concerns would have been forgotten.

That is very true. They are the most obvious during that time, too.

Thank God for the new media.

“If Obama was a Marxist his goal would be to purposefully, deliberately bankrupt America and destroy the private sector free market capitalist economy.”

He’s been doing just that with his Keynesian economics.

“If this were his intent, what would he have done differently thus far during his presidency?”

He would have, instead of restraining the private sector, unleashed it.

“If this goal were reached, the socialist would have America’s untouched oil reserves, the oil industry would be nationalized. The environmental concerns would have been forgotten.”

Nationalizing any industry is communism...not socialism.

Do your homework, then get back to me.

I wouldn’t go so far as to say that. We are in the process of rebuilding, and there are a fair number of Representatives and Senators, from both parties, who have their day of reckoning yet to come.

This is a multi-election revolution.

“and we have limp wrecking Congressmen obliging him in his wrecking of the country”

I don’t know about that, just yet. They’ve been in office for less than two months.

Give them a little time to find their balance. I know for a fact that having so many TEA Party Congresscritters is having an effect.

This is a multi-election revolution. We will take the Senate next time.

Please...remember that.

I don’t know how old you are, but I remember when Reagan defeated Carter...and I had lived as an adult during the Carter years.

The “fix” didn’t happen overnight, but it was like an earthquake of biblical proportions when Reagan assumed office.

The House is doing what they can to stop Obama’s agenda, but they are overwhelmed with problems right now.

I’m not making excuses...but I know one thing that is certain...I wouldn’t want to be an incumbent politician on either side of the aisle for anything in the world right now.

” The House is doing what they can to stop Obama’s agenda, but they are overwhelmed with problems right now. “

when obambi was a senator, he got $23,000,000.00 diverted to Kenya that helped to get Shariah Law installed

everyone in govt offices had the same info I had, or should have .... he was allowed to run and get elected potus anyway

“...he was allowed to run and get elected potus anyway”

You can lay that directly at the LSM’s feet.

They were not only in the tank for him, they showered, bathed and fed him...and sucked up to him in more ways than is polite to acknowledge.

They put halos around his head, they had no comment about the parthenon that was erected in Denver...more than that, they threw Hillary! under the bus, and allowed Obama to use the race card against Billybob.

The worst thing they did, though, is to not only allow him to go unvetted, as they usually do during a Presidential election, but to be his press secretaries.

From socialism it’s just one small step to Communism, teacher.

Evil is evil.

“From socialism it’s just one small step to Communism, teacher.”

Thanks for the promotion. ;o) However, my post to you still stands.

This admin would love nothing better, imo, and it is, in fact, their ultimate goal.

“Evil is evil.

A rose by any other name is still a rose.”

I couldn’t agree with you more.

When the destruction is sufficient for the (insert political description here) people to nationalize and completely control the oil industries i imagine their converstion would go something like this:

“Oh no, we can’t do this! We are socialist, not communists!”

It just does not matter. Evil has no restraints.

I did state that the Obama Administration was Marxist.

Communism.

What is the Obama Administration’s goal?

We will know when they are close to achieving this goal when they will no longer have to PRETEND to be concerned about the environment, the economy, education, the children , the poor..... These are merely vehicles they will use to reach their goal.

Which is what? What do you think is their goal?

Have you ever read anything by Alexandr Solzhenitsyn?

If you want to know about communism, I suggest you read, at the very least, this...

http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/literature/laureates/1970/solzhenitsyn-autobio.html

That is their goal.

If I have to point out this fine author to you, then you are young, and I guess I am a teacher. ;o)

My point is, what does it matter?

They are facists, they are socialists, they are communists.

They are even capitalists if it temporarily serves their needs.

They will be whatever they need to be at any given time.

They are Democrats.

It matters.

You are assuming that the American people are idiots...stupid...morons.

I would think that the “shellacking” Obama took in November would give you some hope for this country.

The Republicans will take the Senate in ‘12. What they will do with it remains to be seen.

It all comes down to the Republican presidential nominee.

That’s what is scary...
