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

Also a golfing warning.
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.
Here you go ...
This one is a more subtle than the rest ... but it is pretty cute once you figure it out.
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.
Sorry, I forgot, Kesey’s bus was “FURTHER” not FORWARD”. Too many years have gone by.......
LOL. You didn’t eat the brown acid, did you? It was bad....
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.
Mao’s “Great Leap Forward” killed tens of millions, many intentionally.
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.
