Skip to comments.New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism

The Obama campaign apparently didn't look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, "Forward" a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.
Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name "Forward!" or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called "Forward (generic name of socialist publications)."
"The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications," the online encyclopedia explains.
The slogan "Forward!" reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.
The Obama campaign released its new campaign slogan Monday in a 7-minute video. The title card has simply the word "Forward" with the "O" having the familiar Obama logo from 2008. It will be played at rallies this weekend that mark the Obama re-election campaign's official beginning.

Let’s see PMSNBC has “Lean Forward” Obambi has “Forward” isen’t that alot like “Bend Over”?!
The term (fore) means "look ahead", and it is believed to come from the military "beware before", which an artilleryman about to fire would yell alerting nearby infantrymen to drop to the ground to avoid the shells overhead (Wikepedia)
In other words, "incoming" load of bullsh*t.
And only one small newspaper notices a full month later!
The author’s assumption is wrong. Their side KNOW, at least those on the inside.
It is the ordinary Americans, who are ignorant of Marxism, smybols of Marxism, anything remotely connected to Marxism, that won’t make the connection.
You can’t pick a speech made by a south/central American tin-pot marxist without 30% of the word count being “ADELANTE” (forward).
New zippy campaign slogan?
This makes perfect sense!
Komrade Obamaski points out the way!
From Obama's Bible, The Communist Manifesto.
It was launched in imitation of Vorwarts ("Forward"), a German Marxist newspaper of which Friedrich Engels was a patron.
Gosh, I have always had trouble with Cyrillic.
Forward...to 1940’s socialism!!!
“Forward” also happens to be the motto of State of Wisconsin.
I have read that good, non-liberal academics have analyzed OZERO’s books and found direct correlations between his ideas and those of Chairman Mao, Karl Marx and VI Lenin, etc. In a few cases, OZERO came pretty close to outright plagiarizing some of Lenin’s essays.
Thank you for the translation.
It suits Komrade Obama to a “T”!
