I Choose My Friends Carefully; Politically Active Black Students, Foreign Students, The Chicanos, The Marxist Professors And Structural Feminists

Barack Obama has tried to wring out every last drop he can from that tired rag “McCain equals Bush”.
If we put that same logic to work against Obama then “Obama equals Marx”.

I’ll begin with a quote from Barack Obama’s book “Dreams From My Father”

I’d seen this some months ago but saw it again today while reading an article by Bill Sammon of Fox News and it brought to mind some other issues which assist in demonstrating that at best Barack Obama is a Socialist.

To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism and patriarchy.

[If you do not know who Franz Fanon (actual name was Frantz Fanon) is you can find a quick overview here: Frantz Fanon was a psychiatrist, philosopher, revolutionary, and author from Martinique. He was influential in the field of post-colonial studies and was perhaps the pre-eminent thinker of the 20th century on the issue of decolonization and the psychopathology of colonization. His works have inspired anti-colonial liberation movements for more than four decades.]
He chose his friends carefully, given the description of his friends he clearly sought out the radical fringe and those groups which tended towards Socialist and Marxist ideology.
If Barack did not favor a Socialist/Marxist ideology did he then seek such person out to be his friends?

Barack’s mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA).
Typically a mentor is one who is meant to influence a person in a specific direction in life. A counselor, a teacher.

Campaign workers for Barack Obama displayed a flag featuring communist hero Che Guevara.

I haven’t heard since the first time I saw this image, but I am sure the flag has since been removed per the Obama campaign. Removed or not it demonstrates the type of person Obama attracts and inspires to work for his election.

Marx and Obama have in common a disdain for religion.
Speaking of small town America Obama said the following:

they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations

No less hostility was displayed by Marx when he stated:

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the sentiment of a heartless world, and the soul of a soulless condition. It is the opium of the people


Religion is the impotence of the human mind to deal with occurrences it cannot understand

Mr. Obama essentially echoed the thoughts of Karl Marx.

Mr. Obama makes claim to Christianity yet words such as this flow with ease from his heart, to his mind and out his mouth.

Perhaps not that surprising when you look closely at the church he attended for 20 years which taught from the pulpit a very Socialist perversion of the Gospel.

Senator Obama has previously worked with ACORN (though he has recently begun to deny any direct involvement with the group) which in the 1980 made a practice of placing squatters in unoccupied homes.

ACORN speaks to this on their website:

ACORN sought to place needy people in the resulting vacant homes. This required the forceful and illegal (though logical and moral) seizing of the properties – squatting.

The squatting campaigns involved personal, community and political dimensions. The personal needs of people without homes attracted many to advertisements ACORN placed in papers asking “Do you need a home?” The squatting campaign required a personal commitment to move into a vacant, usually poorly kept house and refit it for comfortable living. It also involved the risk of arrest if local authorities refused them the legal occupation of the home.

How very Marxist indeed.

Barack Obama was listed as being a member of the Socialist organization known as the New Party.
We all know about Bill Ayers the domestic terrorist and his association with Barack Obama.
Obama makes a regular claim that Ayers was just “Some guy in the neighborhood”.
Seem’s a tad odd that Obama would review and endorse a book for “Some guy in the neighborhood”.

Consider all of the above information to be puzzle pieces.
Each piece may not demonstrate on it’s own that Barack Obama is a Socialist or a Marxist.
But as we put all the pieces together the picture emerges in a very clear manner.

I by no means presented all of the pieces here, but enough were presented to know what the picture will look like when the last piece is added to the puzzle.

Many other blogs have covered this topic in much more depth than I have.
