Skip to comments.New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, Socialism (FORWARD!)
Posted on 04/30/2012 6:22:48 PM PDT by tcrlaf
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.

‘forward’ is the only slogan he can honestly use as his administration for the past 3 /12 years has been stuck in reverse— While the country burned, obama and family were jettign aroudn hte world partying it up- and now he wants to ‘move forward’?
I really reallyu hope mitt romney jumps o nthis and SHOWS the coutnry just how backwars obama has been- and what damage he’s doen to this coutnry- not hearing an aweful lot from romeny yet though-
I am done being nice or polite or respectful to libtards. They have taken and destroyed too much of my country to be forgiven.
THIS IS WAR, DAMMIT!
Even worse, they intentionally announced the day before May Day, the international communist holiday celebrating “labor.” This level of in-your-face brazenness has never been experienced before in our Republic.
I pray to God that Romney doesn’t utter “He’s a good man and you have nothing to fear from his presidency.” He’s come perilously close lately.
I agree! However that is why I said that Romney & the GOP ought to hang this like an anchor around 0dumb0’s neck and hammer 0dumb0 on the fact that “Forward” will plunge us even deeper into bankruptcy, racism, corruption, killing the economy, etc. I know that Newt would be able to phrase it so that it turns on 0dumb0. I don’t know that Mitt will either do that or have the balls to do it.
Apparently didn't look backwards?? That's precisely why they chose it! Because it's a commie codeword. Same crap with "Change".
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek"-- BARACK OBAMA
From the website of the Communist Party, USA...
(prior to the election)
"The Communist Party USA views the 2008 elections as a tremendous opportunity to defeat the policies of the right-wing Republicans and to move our country in a new progressive direction.
The record turnout in the Democratic Presidential primary races shows that millions of voters, including millions of new voters, are using this election to bring about real change. We wholeheartedly agree with them."

Change is Here, Change is Coming
Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA:
Let me begin with a simple observation: If the last 30 years were an era of reaction, then the coming decade could turn into an era of reform, even radical reform. Six months into the Obama presidency, I would say without hesitation that the landscape, atmosphere, conversation, and agenda have strikingly changed compared to the previous eight years.
In this legislative session, we can envision winning a Medicare-like public option and then going further in the years ahead.
We can visualize passing tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry, which brought the economy to ruin.
We can imagine the troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan while U.S. representatives participate in a regional process that brings peace and stability to the entire region.
In the current political climate, the expansion of union rights becomes a real possibility.
Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still-rising rate, and likely long term persistence, of unemployment.
Isnt it possible in the Obama era to create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and other sectors of the economy in tandem with an attack on global warming?
Cant we envision taking new strides in the long journey for racial and gender equality in this new era, marked at its beginning by the election of the first African American to the presidency?
And isnt the overhaul of the criminal justice and prison system a system steeped in racism no longer pie-in-the sky, but something that can be done in the foreseeable future?
All these things are within reach now!
"Barack Obama told supporters that
'change has come to America' as he
claimed victory in a historic presidential election."
A Landslide Mandate For Change
A breakthrough election
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!
We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-peoples movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all peoples movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.
The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and peoples unity.
There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.
The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

Can someone photoshop this for me?
Take the EXACT IMAGE...and the after the first "R" put an "E" in the same font...and then, at the end, between the "R" and the "D" put an "NE" in the same font.
And the background and lighting makes it look all macabre and menacing.
So, we’re going to go “Forward,” now as opposed to the last four years in “Reverse.”
CRAP!! I didn’t know this...
Just goes to show how deep progressives here in Madistan are entrenched...
Wisconsin State Motto = FORWARD
Lady Liberty on State Capital = Lady FORWARD
Secretary of State named is flippin cow = Miss FORWARD
all makes sense now....
