New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism
Washington Times ^ | April 30, 2012

Posted on 06/14/2012 12:05:47 PM PDT by Gopher Broke

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.

Posted on another thread but I'm gonna repeat: Should be 'Fore!'ward

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.

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!

For those who have trouble with Cyrillic, the caption at the bottom means: "A spectre roams through Europe, the spectre of Communism."

From Obama's Bible, The Communist Manifesto.

Mussolini - the architect of fascism - began his political career as the editor of Avanti! ("Forward!"), a Marxist newspaper.

It was launched in imitation of Vorwarts ("Forward"), a German Marxist newspaper of which Friedrich Engels was a patron.

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.

I don’t know about a Marxist, but he is a socialist. And, that’s enough to vote against him.

He needs a new slogan in line with his anti-religious policies.

I am waiting for him to reprise Fidel from Dec. 2, 1961:

“I am a Marxist-Leninist and shall be one until the end of my life.”

Even if he said that, he would still get 45%+ of the vote. That is how far we have come in the leftist destruction of the United States.

Besides it’s communist roots, “FORWARD” was what Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters had on their buses destination sign in the 60’s when they were doing their acid test.

As someone esle said “Onward through the fog”

No, Not the brown stuff.

Believe it or not, I still have 2 brain cells left!

They collide now and again and either give me a coherent thought or a headache, sometimes both.

On another note, I will not blame the previous administartion for my mistake of misuse of the words “Further” and Forward”. It was not Bush’s fault.

Previous administration...Bush? Dude, the last president was Mitt Romney, who finished up his second term in 2020. It’s August 31, 2022, and we’re two years into the Paul Ryan administration!

Are you *sure* you didn’t eat the brown acid?

No wayyyyy dude, I just voted for Calvin Coolidge!!!!!!!!

However, I love your train of thought, and can hallucinate very easily without medication into Ryan’s term as POTUS.
