In a letter to the official Communist Party newspaper, People’s Weekly World, published after Obama’s win in Iowa, we get a graphic view of what American communists see in Obama’s presidential bid:
Obama’s victory was more than a progressive move; it was a dialectical leap ushering in a qualitatively new era of struggle. Marx once compared revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface. This is the old revolutionary “mole,” not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through.
The old pattern of politics as usual has been broken. It may not have happened as we expected but what matters is that it happened. The message is clear: We can and must defeat the ultra-right, by uniting the broadest possible coalition that will represent an overwhelming majority of the people in a new political dynamic.
Obama has already proposed the creation of a homeland police force that will no doubt terrorize those in the “ultra-right” who will become the most vociferous and active opponents of his socialist regime. Hitler had a similar police force called the Gestapo – Geheime Staats Polizie or Homeland State Police – that terrorized the opponents of the Nazi regime.
In 1933 a majority of Germans voted for a demagogue who promised “change” and seemed to be the answer to their economic and national problems. None of those voters could have foreseen that 12 years later Germany would lie in ruins and be occupied by foreign armies.
The young followers of Barack Obama have been well indoctrinated in our public schools to accept slogans rather than actual substance. The Nov. 3, 2008, issue of Time magazine has an extraordinary picture of Obama standing before a huge rally of 100,000 people under the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, with his right arm outstretched reminding one of the famous Nazi salute. And what is particularly frightening is that two-thirds of the people in this massive crowd also have their arms outstretched in the Sieg Heil salute. What we see is mass hypnosis created by a charismatic hypnotist mouthing inane slogans and trashing the opposition. It used to be said that it can’t happen here. But the picture shows that it is happening here at this very moment.
In his famous autobiography, “Dreams From My Father,” Obama reveals that his earliest mentor in Hawaii was a man by the name of Frank Marshall Davis. It so happens that Davis had been sent to Hawaii in the late 1940s by the Communist Party to organize the party in Hawaii.
Davis had begun his communist career in Chicago. He was a friend and associate of Paul Robeson, the great singer, and Harry Bridges, head of the communist dominated International Longshoremen and Warehousemen’s Union. Both men were secret Communist Party USA members.
Obama was born on Aug. 4, 1961, in Hawaii. The name on his birth certificate is Barack Hussein Obama, II, named after his Kenyan father who had married his mother, Ann Dunham, when they were students at the University of Hawaii. His parents were divorced when Barack was 2 years old. His father returned to Kenya. Dunham then married Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian Muslim, and the family moved to Indonesia where Barack attended both an Islamic and Catholic school. In 1971 Barack returned to Hawaii and lived with his grandparents. During his high school years he became friends with Frank Marshall Davis, who inculcated him in the radical anti-white views of black revolutionaries.
Upon graduation from high school, Barack attended Occidental College in Los Angeles. He writes in his autobiography: “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 discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism and patriarchy.” He then transferred to Columbia University in New York where he got his Bachelor of Arts degree. He then went to Chicago where he developed his talents as a community organizer. From there, he went to Harvard Law School where he became editor of the Harvard Law Review.
After a trip to Kenya to visit his father’s family, Barack returned to Chicago where he was chosen by Illinois State Sen. Alice Palmer to succeed her. Palmer had been on the executive board of the U.S. Peace Council, identified by the FBI as a front organization for the Communist Party USA and affiliate of the Soviet front World Peace Council. According to an article in the Black Press Review, Palmer attended the 27th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and came away favorably impressed by the Soviet system. The fact that she chose Barack to succeed her indicates that she had full confidence he would continue to advance her leftist agenda.
According to Ben Smith of Politico, it was at Bill Ayers’ house that Alice Palmer announced she was running for Congress and had chosen Barack to take her place in the state senate. Obama, of course, won that election without any opposition. That was the start of his meteoric political career that has finally brought him to where he stands today. And he owes it all to his leftist, commie friends with their connections in high places. To them, Obama is the smooth, charismatic leader who will take all of them into the White House and give them power over the greatest and last bastion of individual freedom ever conceived by man.
