Skip to comments.Leftist Coverup of Obama’s Radical Roots Underway
Posted on 05/30/2008 1:11:40 PM PDT by vadum
When you're running for president, it's hard to outrun your past. Shown in old mugshots, unrepentant terrorist William Ayers (above center), and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn (right), helped launch Barack Obama's political career by holding a 1995 fundraiser in their Hyde Park home. The event came years after the couple detonated bombs in the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol, and New York City police headquarters.

The campaign to silence those who want to discuss Barack Obama's close personal relationships with terrorists and card-carrying Communists --associations that seriously undercut Obama's insistence that he is serious about national security-- is well underway.
Michael Kinsley, apologist for things liberal, is already copying the Obama campaign by trying to intimidate critics into not discussing Barack Obama's connection to his close Hyde Park friends, the unrepentant terrorists William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. Obama's buddies were on the lam for a decade after successfully detonating bombs in the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol building, and New York City police headquarters. But Obama couldn't care less about his America-hating friends' past and might have even secretly sympathized with them. And why should Obama care, anyway: he's the most ideologically consistent, most left-wing major party presidential candidate in modern American history.
But can you imagine what would happen if a conservative running for office were revealed to have a close personal friendship with a terrorist on the extreme right? To use a hypothetical, what if John McCain had a history with Oklahoma City federal building bomber Timothy McVeigh or anti-abortion fanatic Eric Rudolph? Would we ever hear the end of it? Of course not. Even if he distanced himself, the media --including the cackling Kinsley-- would bombard him relentlessly.
Kinsley pulls out the but-everybody-did-it defense:
If Obama's relationship with Ayers, however tangential, exposes Obama as a radical himself, or at least as a man with terrible judgment, he shares that radicalism or terrible judgment with a comically respectable list of Chicagoans and others--including Republicans and conservatives--who have embraced Ayers and Dohrn as good company, good citizens, even experts on children's issues.Although it's probably not going to play in Peoria, it's all part of the same old playbook. Vilifying conservatives for supposedly being mean-spirited, misanthropic, Fascistic racists bent on a genocidal war against the poor is fair game, but point out the obvious --that today's liberals are by their very nature not terribly concerned about national security, freedom, and economic growth-- and suddenly one has stepped outrageously outside the boundaries of fair comment.
If Obama is elected, we will have gone to hell so far that it will be impossible to dig out. It is as if the United States is being set up for the biggest fall in the history of the world.
His resume says he was a “community organizer”. Truth is, he worked for ACORN, which is a far left organization.
The media is already geared for Clinton Apologist Editorial license in lieu of News. All they have to do is change the name!
The present day Obama is so scary and such a threat to America, that his distant past is hardly a concern....
I should know this... but didnt Hillary work or belong to the communist party in college, or right there after????I know we are all in Obamas past right now, but ole Hill has skeletons as well. The whole left side scares me....
As this country has become more and more prosperous, the perceived value that being an American citizen has become less and less. (Its human nature, we value less that which is given to us, compared to that which we have truly earned) And I fear that by the time the people as a whole realize how much they have lost. It will be long past too late.
Leftists know who Obama is, and that’s why they support him. But if there’s a chance of him attaining the Presidency, they wouldn’t want to screw it up.
The MSM is covering up, too, but they’re doing it because they’re Democrats.
They will NEVER get that genie back in the bottle!
barack curious george mcgovern is heading toward a huge ash kicking.
CAUGHT IN BLATANT LIES:
“Barack Obama makes up a story about an “uncle” who was a WWII combat veteran who signed up the day after Pearl Harbor and ‘was among the first Americans to liberate Auschwitz.
Except it wasn’t his uncle, but a great-uncle, Auschwitz was liberated by the Red Army and not the Americans, and it turns out he was attached to a unit that liberated an ancillary camp near Buchenwald.
Obama also claimed in 2002: “My grandfather signed up for a war the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, fought in Patton’s army. He saw the dead and dying across the fields of Europe; he heard the stories of fellow troops who first entered Auschwitz and Treblinka. He fought in the name of a larger freedom, part of that arsenal of democracy that triumphed over evil, and he did not fight in vain.”
In fact, he did not fight at all. How do I know that? Well, because Barack Obama wrote it in his book, “Dreams From My Father.”
“Gramps returned from the war never having seen real combat, and the family moved to California, where he enrolled at Berkeley under the GI bill,” he writes. “But the classroom couldn’t contain his ambitions, his restlessness, and so the family moved again.”
Obama’s camp corrected the story about the uncle and Auschwitz, but to date, has yet to explain how his grandfather could have been a combat veteran who never saw combat.
And, despite Obama’s efforts to have somebody in his family liberate Auschwitz, Obama’s grandfather wasn’t in the Red Army, either.”
If Obama's relationship with Ayers, however tangential, exposes Obama as a radical himself, or at least as a man with terrible judgment, he shares that radicalism or terrible judgment with a comically respectable list of Chicagoans and others--including Republicans and conservatives--who have embraced Ayers and Dohrn as good company, good citizens, even experts on children's issues.
Unlike Obama, those other bozos aren't striving desperately to become the President of the United States. We expect better judgment from a potential President, Mr. Kinsley.
The media know all this. They want Obama to be elected and are deliberately and willfully holding back this information.
If Obama is elected, I fear the United States may cease to exist. He's the ultimate Manchurian Candidate.
Yeah, but the internet and youtube weren’t around in 1992. Different time and circumstances. Too bad Kinsley, get ready for “Swiftboat 2008” starring:
Sadly most of Obama’s supporters simply DON’T CARE about his past, his current positions or what he will do in the future. They don’t care what he will do to this country. He represents âchangeâ and that’s all his supporters care about. Our work is cut out for us.
Once libs embrace a candidate, they embrace their candidate wholly. Their candidate has no flaws, their candidate is perfect, heroic. They can never say that “well, my candidate does have some flaws, but I’ll vote for him or her anyway.” This approach makes them look like fools. Or bigger fools than they usually are.
The ascendancy of Barack He Whose Middle Name May Not Be Spoken Obama is the realization of the efforts of all the Cultural Marxists whose ideas were nurtured by the Gramcians who set up the Frankfurt School and spawned cultural radicals like Erich Fromm, Herbert Marcuse, and Theodore Adorno. Their intellectual progeny are thoroughly ensconced in the MSM, academia, Hollywood, and most importantly in the George Soros directed modern day Democratic Party which is the nest for all the Vipers on the left, the racial identity determininists, the radical feminists, the sexual deviationist lobby, the watermelon environmentalists, the open borders crowd and the anti-war seditionists who seek to steal from our magnificent armed forces the victory that they have earned with their blood and valor in the SAME MANNER as they stole our hard earned victory from those of us who are Vietnam vets.
Their apotheosis is the religion of Obama, the Lucifer deceiver who would lead this great nation to Fabian Socialist HELL!!!
Should Barack He Whose Middle Name May Not Be Spoken Obama get a compliant Democrat Congress and Senate, the damage done to this country and to liberty as we have known it, would be incalculable. He is the most dangerous presidential candidates since Henry Wallace. Please check this link. It will tell you all that you need to know. There is credible info that could lead one to believe that his Indonesian stepfather to him to Mosque with the intent of making him Muslim. His own campaign said in a LA Time article that he was never a REGULARLY practicing Muslim, leading one to infer that he was an IRREGULARLY practicing Muslim. That is enough for the Muzzies to convict him as an apostate or to accept him as one of the faithful deceiving the dhimmis. Check the years 1971-1973 at the link below.
Terrorists all think alike!
