Skip to comments.Obama affinity to Marxists dates back to college days

Barack Obama laughs off charges of socialism. Joe Biden scoffs at references to Marxism. Both men shrug off accusations of liberalism.
But Obama himself acknowledges that he was drawn to socialists and even Marxists as a college student. He continued to associate with Marxists later in life, even choosing to launch his political career in the living room of a self-described Marxist, William Ayers, in 1995, when Obama was 34.
Obama's affinity for Marxists began when he attended Occidental College in Los Angeles.
"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully," the Democratic presidential candidate wrote in his memoir, "Dreams From My Father." "The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists."

On TV last night, the Jim Jones ‘tragedy’. Only it was mass murder, and the similarities between Jones’ snakeoil and the stuff Obama’s selling are eerily striking. Some FReepers have mentioned this here and there, but last night I was half asleep with the TV on, and the narrative about Jones was the stuff of nightmares. “Change, sharing the wealth, we’ll change the world”, and on and on. Obama is truly a modern day Jim Jones. Not 900 victims this time if he gets in, but millions.
CNS NEWS.com: "OBAMA SEES SUPREME COURT JUSTICES AS CHAMPIONS OF THE WEAK OVER THE STRONG" by Matthew Cover (ARTICLE SNIPPET: "In both speeches, the Illinois Democrat chastised the nominees not for their positions on specific constitutional issues or matters of law but for what he perceived as too often siding with the strong instead of the weak. He chargied Roberts, for example, with being dismissive of claims of racial and gender discrimination and criticized Alito for making a habit out of siding with government and corporations against plaintiffs and workers.")

Everything about Obama traces back to that one organization. Ayers/Dohrn, ACORN, all of it ties back to SDS.
The Weathermen failed to bring about violent revolution, and so instead their former members, with the help of groups like ACORN, have embarked on a decades-long plan to subvert America from within. Obama is their creation and their puppet.
The understatement of the year. Obama (if elected) will usher in the total destruction of this country and everything it stood for. I (for one) am praying for Divine Intervention. God will not forsake Israel for they are His chosen people. It is THAT which I cling to keep my faith during these trying times.
Obama attends a fundraiser for himself at the home of William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, a world-famous terrorist. According to Wikipedia (corroborated by Ayers himself, and in front of an audience of about 400 people) Dorhn said, of the killings by Charles Manson of Sharon Tate and the LaBiancas, “Dig it! First they killed those pigs and then they put a fork in their bellies. Wild!”
Why would Obama associate with these people, at a political function, unless he was more or less in agreement with them?
