Reverend Obama: Red?

The BS never ends. Obama had/has communist/marxist connections: that's fairly evident. That doesn't necessarily mean BO's a communist, but it IS relevant, except to cheesy wannabe-apparatchiks, like this scheissekopf.

Cliff Kincaid, writing for Accuracy in Media,presents a level-headed account of Obama's association with marxist-coalition politics:

"""""In his books, Obama admits attending "socialist conferences" and coming into contact with Marxist literature. But he ridicules the charge of being a "hard-core academic Marxist," which was made by his colorful and outspoken 2004 U.S. Senate opponent, Republican Alan Keyes.

However, through Frank Marshall Davis, Obama had an admitted relationship with someone who was publicly identified as a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). The record shows that Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where, at some point in time, he developed a close relationship, almost like a son, with Davis, listening to his "poetry" and getting advice on his career path. But Obama, in his book, Dreams From My Father, refers to him repeatedly as just "Frank."

The reason is apparent: Davis was a known communist who belonged to a party subservient to the Soviet Union. In fact, the 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified him as a CPUSA member. What's more, anti-communist congressional committees, including the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), accused Davis of involvement in several communist-front organizations.""""

So why don't people in Blogland--even Hillary supporters---make an issue of the Davis/Obama relationship? Because they are generally spineless cretins, or have been paid off.

"Because they are either spineless cretins, or have been paid off."

Why choose? I am a spineless cretin AND I draw a weekly salary from Obama, Inc. Must get our closet Marxist in power to complete the grand revolution!

The Peoples Front of Obama, er Obama Peoples' Front is NOT an Inc. of course. So you must just be a spineless cretin.

Some leftists make fun of those people who express concern at communist affiliations, and so forth: yet if you read a bit more about the monumental carnage (as with the recent book on Mao, the Untold Story) you might not think it so paranoid. Similar for the recent retirement of Commandante Fidel Castro: while Fidel was no Mao (tho' probably some Cuban/china connections), he and his cronies (including his hermano Raul) did kill 1000s: It's pretty well documented. Those killed were not all batista supporters or some right-wing fascists: many intellectuals were offed, or disappeared. The Cuban reds even fired on those poor boats with escaping refugees (probably tired of the cigar factory work).

So, while some might want to buy Fidelito a cerveza, they shouldn't overlook his sangria-stained hands.

(btw, your Hick-in-residence is wrong on The Wall, at least in terms of original movie: Geldof has a vision at the Trial, and the Judge is "Worm, your honour").

I don't particularly favor Marxism, but I do think we need more socialism in this country and I hope Obama takes us in that direction. We need socialist health care to go along with our socialist fire prevention, police force, road construction, military defense, etc. That last, in fact, would be best to return to the socialistic basis it used to be before the Blackwaterization occurred. That's the way it goes with fading empires though.

Contingencies supports some socialistic concepts in principle, even health care. It's the application of those socialistic concepts that presents problems: a planned economy is great, if one happens to be one of the planners. Those who are ordered to follow the plans might not think it so great.

I am against the empowerment of the poor and disenfranchised, however, when that empowerment or welfare state takes the form of hand-outs to anyone who has been f-ed over; you only need to see a few welfare mamas driving Esplanades to their big houses to understand that. I'm also opposed to a certain marxist flavor of globalism (which would open borders to all, and say make Mexico, if Latin America, part of the USA).

Amazing---a few of my comments got through on your site, and I wasn't termed a neo-nazi racist and murderer. Whoa. That will probably soon happen. Hey, even the beats respected LF Celine, pal of some of the Waffen SS.

(btw, I think one might object on ethical grounds to the manner in which Bb presented the material on BO's marxist connection on your blog. The AIM article by Kincaid seems quite reasonable, and fair. The hipster leftist blog-comrades, however, symbolically carved a swastika in Kincaid's forehead, and Bb continued that ditto'ing.)

J said...

Ah, and now Bb starts into his blog-binge! Silly, stupid, superficial, mostly lies, even if he like aced Civics back at Yuma High, and can sort of do Maya Angelou imitations.

I'm quite sure your guru-du jour May would have agreed. May was precisely against the pop noise, kitsch, hyper-narcissism, "radical chic". May's not praising the Beatles; he praises TS Eliot.

He'd ask you politely (and maybe as a type of therapy) to delete the Oaf's endless kitschy pseudo-leftism, the silly pop-politics, the noise. And even the existentialists (if not marxists) opposed a sort of naive populist-leftism with all the conservative Bad Guys in black hats, and the do-gooder Liberals in white hats. Frank Davis is no white hat. Fidel Castro had not white hat. BubbaRon has no white hat (he has like a electrodes).

(and uh original Wall flick does NOT have Curry in cast: Geldof/Pink has the worm-judge vision during trial)
