Glad to meet an Indian Communist, said Obama
ndtv.com ^ | Nov. 9, 2010

Posted on 11/09/2010 11:44:30 AM PST by Free ThinkerNY

New Delhi: The Left may have staged protests during his visit but US President Barack Obama was "glad" to meet an Indian communist leader last evening.

"I am glad to meet an Indian communist. I am told that communists have been part of the (Indian) political mainstream," Obama told CPM Politburo member Sitaram Yechury at the Rashtrapati Bhawan banquet as they were introduced and both shook hands.

Yechury told Obama that the Indian communists have been in the political mainstream "throughout".

Marking a departure from their past practice, leaders and MPs of the CPM and CPI, known for their anti-US stance, had attended Obama's speech in Parliament last evening.

Longlong red diaper doper baby in chief.

But don’t call him a socialist or a marxist, that’s “divisive”.

Call him a sell-out. That’s the one that really burns.

They wanted to hear someone who shares their interests. I’m sure the bammer did not disappoint.

We see it. We've always seen it. But some years from now, people will look back at the Obama regime, slap their forehead and exclaim, "How did we miss it? The signs were there! He hated this country! He was a Muslim communist who tried to destroy us -- and we totally missed it!"

And we can say, "What you mean "we", paleface?"

When I first read this I thought it was satire!

WOW, I hope there is a video to preserve this moment for history and future elections!

Maybe at some future moment of candor, The Usurper will reveal his true nationality!

Communists have no business being part of the American mainstream no matter how hard Obama and his minions try mold themselves into the system.

Communism in not an alternative form of government. It is a criminal form of government.

the only surprise is that so many naive gullible fools can fail to see Obozo for who and what he is

OF COURSE he loves a place where communism is “part of the mainstream” — he would not need to lie so much about his beliefs there (though he would still lie plenty)

During the campaign, at an Apollo Theater fundraiser, Obama was introduced by the radical Marxist professor and self-styled rapper, Cornell West, as “my comrade.”

Comrade Sparky doesn’t have to go very far to meet an American communist, he’s put loads of them into his administration. A Van Jones type is never far away.

Imagine if a couple of week ago you went to a Tea Party rally with a sign that read: “Obama is glad to meet foreign Communists”.

Imagine the names you- and every other person at the rally- would be called by MSNBC and much of the rest of the media.

I thought it was satire too. I guess I’m not over the being shocked phase yet. A wounded Marxist is a dangerous one. The narcissist in chief has been rejected as of Nov. 2. It’s gonna get a whole lot worse.

Obama sounds like he thinks this is a good thing and should be the case here. Of course one could argue since his election, it already is.

Van Jones got thrown under the bus because he was clearly a Marxist. Yet we are told that it was an "oversight", that they are not into Marxist theory.

Too many fellow travellers to be purely accidental.

I wonder if he would be glad to meet an Indian believer in the caste system. That has been part of India “throughout” also.

-haha. Obama would you care to explain why? Could you step us through why that matters and why that is so great it makes you glad? ...I'm not saying that maybe he likes seeing communists leaders in government buttt maybe he does.

Sure Obama is glad to meet a communist...

Obama - Is a communist - that is fact!

Obama has NEVER been glad to meet a true Bible Grace believing Christian! Neither a true Conservative GOP/Tea Party person.

Communism IS a dirty word. And where in the hell are the agencies in this country that are suppose to round em’ up and put em’ away?

Remember the popular radio program of the late 40s-early 50s, starring Dana Andrews, entitled “I was a communist for the FBI?” It was a true story of a U.S citizen posing as a communist agent for the FBI.

Where IS the FBI??????? Is the House UnAmerican Activities Committee still in existence?

The only thing will save the USA from socialism is the fact that Obama is a cowardly little low I.Q. bi-sexual beta male and not the old commie alpha males like Lenin or Mao.

The large Communist Party of India has always been a Soviet affiliate. One of its leaders was Romesh Chandra, the leader of the KGB/CPSU front known as the World Peace Council.

Several American communists including Abe Feinglass, were officials of the WPC, and some members of Congress actually supported WPC delegations and affairs. These included Rep. John Conyers, Charles Rangel, Don Edwards, and others.

You can find them listed at www.Keywiki.org, SEARCH for “World Peace Council” and “US Peace Council” for more details on US congressmen and women supporting this Soviet front.

It’s fascinating to me that there’s a mainstream party in India that espouses a dead ideology. I’ll tell you, communism is dead, but communists around the World have never gotten the message. According to former communist nations, communism doesn’t work.

I hope one of the first things the house does in January is to re-institute the House Committee on Un-American Activities (HCUA) and start investigating the communists in our government - from the top down. Communism and the CPUSA are threats to our national security. They should be rounded up and extradited to the communist nation of their choice.
