Forward into Communism with Obama!
May 1, 2012 by Gary DeMar – Update: Yesterday I began to write the article below in the early afternoon. The Wikipedia article where I got some of the information included “Forward (Obama-Biden Campaign Slogan)” and the use of “Forward” by numerous socialist and communist groups. The reference to “generic name of socialist publications” has been removed (PDF of original “Forward” Wikipedia page here. A BIG ‘thank you’ to loyal reader Ken for sending this to us). Now the Wiki article includes this message:
“This article is being considered for deletion in accordance with Wikipedia’s deletion policy.”
The Progressives adopted the slogan “Forward” a long time ago. For example, there was the campaign slogan and poster “Forward with Roosevelt” (1936) and P.J. O’Brien’s book title of the same name. The arguments for Roosevelt’s new programs were borrowed from the socialist policies of the German Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck. The National Socialists in Germany also used Bismarck’s social theories for the construction of their social security system. Hitler remarks in Mein Kampf, “I studied Bismarck’s socialist legislation in its intention, struggle and success.”
Bismarck said that “the State must take the matter in hand, since the State can most easily supply the requisite funds. It must provide them not as alms but in fulfillment of the workers’ right to look to the State where their own good will can achieve nothing more.” Roosevelt and his admirers agreed. O’Brien, writing in Forward with Roosevelt, links Bismarck’s social policies with those of Roosevelt: “[The quotation by Bismarck] might have been lifted out of a speech by President Roosevelt in 1936, but the Iron Chancellor uttered it in 1871.”
“Hope and Change” was the campaign slogan of President Obama’s 2008 campaign. The 2012 campaign moniker is “Forward.” Many Americans would add “. . . Off a Cliff.” Obama’s colors may be showing . . . the color red. Fox News reports the following:
“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.”
The ‘Great Leap Forward’ was an economic and social campaign of the Communist Party of China led by Mao Zedong.
I suspect that President Obama’s handlers will link the “Forward” campaign slogan to Roosevelt and dismiss the Marxist links. “If it was good enough for FDR,” they’ll probably say, “then it’s good enough for BHO.”
President Obama’s former associates and intellectual mentors – from Saul Alinsky and Bill Ayers to Derrick Bell and Frank Marshall Davis and his own father and mother — were Marxists of one kind or another.
Then there is Anita Dunn, a political strategist who served as White House Communications Director from April through November 2009 with the Obama administration. She said the following in 2009:
“The third lesson and tip actually comes from two of my favorite political philosophers: Mao Tse-tung and Mother Theresa — not often coupled with each other, but the two people I turn to most to basically deliver a simple point which is ‘you’re going to make choices; you’re going to challenge; you’re going to say why not; you’re going to figure out how to do things that have never been done before.”
Of course, when Dunn was criticized for claiming the mass murdering dictator as one of her “political heroes,” like so many liberals, she said stated that her reference was meant to be “ironic” and that she borrowed the quotation from Republican strategist Lee Atwater (1951–1991). Like her boss at the time, she blamed Bush, that is, George H. W. Bush since Atwater was an advisor to the elder Bush and Chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Can you imagine what would have happened if someone in either Bush administration had said that Adolf Hitler was one of his heroes and then used the excuse that he was only being “ironic”?
If President Obama is re-elected, the social and economic forces of Marxism will be unleashed because he will no longer have to worry about the next election. Four more years of this committed Marxist could do irreparable harm to our economy and institutions.
