Wikipedia Deletes President Obama’s New Marxist Campaign Slogan "Forward!"
Godfather Politics ^ | 5/2/12 | DeMar

Posted on 05/02/2012 10:25:19 AM PDT by pabianice

Obama Marxist_cropped Update:

Yesterday I began to write the article below in the early afternoon. The Wikipedia article where I got some of the information included “Forward (Obama-Biden Campaign Slogan)” and the use of “Forward” by numerous socialist and communist groups. The reference to “generic name of socialist publications” has been removed. Now the Wiki article includes this message:

“This article is being considered for deletion in accordance with Wikipedia’s deletion policy.”

The Progressives adopted the slogan “Forward” a long time ago. For example, there was the campaign slogan and poster “Forward with Roosevelt” (1936) and P.J. O’Brien’s book title of the same name. The arguments for Roosevelt’s new programs were borrowed from the socialist policies of the German Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck. The National Socialists in Germany also used Bismarck’s social theories for the construction of their social security system. Hitler remarks in Mein Kampf, “I studied Bismarck’s socialist legislation in its intention, struggle and success.”

Someone at Wikipaedia is probably concerned about that upcoming IRS audit.

History belongs to those who write it.

Even if it is deleted from Obama, it still is a valid entry regarding mao, communists, and that pesky german youth movement.

It could just be under the heading “slogan: “forward””

It is still up and is actually liked at Drudge.

I rated the article “highly trustworthy and complete”.

Hurry and do the same before their servers crash.

Mao was a late-comer. "Forward" has been a commie slogan for a very long time.

Here's Trotsky from 1917.

Even that wasn't the first. On January 4, 1905, the first issue of the Bolshevik newspaper Vperyod (Forward) appeared.

Italian Socialists were using it in 1896.

The German socialists' Vorwärts[Forward], started in 1891, had Engels writing for them.

Wikipedia probably considers it a hate crime (against Obama and the Demonrats)to associate “Forward!” with Nazism, Maoism, facism, MSNBC, etc.

Good point, and thanks. I went to the deletion discussion page and placed a "KEEP" entry (with a heretofore unused rationale).

Match that slogan with Obamas face imposed over that famous picture of Lenin leaning “forward.”

Obama should just cut his losses and adopt a new slogan. I know, how about “Amnesia” because the only way this guy is going to get elected is if he and his MSM buddies can make people forget his record.

“Forward” “Progressive”...means the same in my book. Just a liberal disguise.

"I rated the article “highly trustworthy and complete”."

I marked it as trustworthy, but not complete. Here is the current full article text:

On April 30th, 2012 the Obama–Biden campaign announced the slogan "Forward".

"Forward" is one of Obama's clever little "winks" at his communist revolutionary supporters.
Alinsky taught that you should use euphemisms and code words to advance your [communist] agenda without alerting and alarming the middle class, until it's too late.

I liked his WTF slogan better. Why did he drop that? It was so fitting.
