As if we hadn’t already known it, one of Obama’s college cohorts has come forward to say that Barack Obama had indeed been a radical, full-bore communist. While none of this may be particularly surprising to those of us who have paid attention to Obama’s development as a presidential candidate going at least as far back as his 2004 Democrat Convention speech, I suspect the average American may not have the slightest idea just how thoroughly radical their President’s credentials really are. This owes to the media that has covered for him, rather than covering him, both in looking at his history and in examining his friends and associations. Having watched this administration in action for nearly three years, more Americans are realizing something is wrong with President Obama’s view of the country, of values, and of the world in which we live. What John Drew offers is a bit of insight into the nature of Barack Obama’s real beliefs and intentions.
According to FoxNation:
Well, consider the words of John Drew, a man whom writer Paul Kengor calls “Obama’s Missing Link.” A contemporary of Obama’s at Occidental College three decades ago, Drew says that he himself was a Marxist at the time — and part of Obama’s inner circle. And what does he reveal?
Obama was an “ardent” “Marxist-Leninist” who “was in 100 percent, total agreement with [his] Marxist professors,” said Drew.In fact, Drew states that while he was a more nuanced Marxist who tried to convince Obama that old-style communist revolution was unrealistic in the West, the future President would have none of it and considered Drew a “reactionary.”
“Reactionary?” That’s typical Marxist lingo, but as some have offered, he was younger then, and of course he might have been a good deal more radical in his youth than as he matured. What is the evidence that this has been the case? After all, among his first round of appointments were a crowd of Marxists and communists that would have made “Uncle Joe” proud. Van Jones, Cass Sunstein, John Holdren, and Samantha Powers(Sunstein’s wife) come immediately to mind, but there are many more. As Van Jones admitted publicly, you have to “drop the radical pose to achieve the radical ends.”
I’m certain that this bunch of Alinskyite radicals has done precisely that, and Obama most of all. As I explained in examining Obama’s pro-socialism speech in Osawatomie, Kansas, this president believes the left-wing propaganda. One bit of information that has turned up since that speech is that the Weather Underground had its own newspaper back in the 1970s, called Osawatomie. No kidding. If you visit the site where this is detailed, you’ll find that much of the jargon and lingo of Obama’s 2008 campaign and his presidency is repeated here. The point? He’s a true believer, a man committed on principle to destroying the United States as we have known it. The key to understanding this is what Drew actually said about his commitment: He believes an “old-style communist revolution” is a possibility in the US. Consider that statement, and all it implies, and then remember that Bill Ayers was among those who were planning just such a revolution, and as early as the 1970s, were imagining how to kill off the estimated 25 million people who would not peaceably submit.
I submit to you that if it was your intention to have an old-style communist revolution, if you could capture ruling power by any means, you would be able to wreak havoc on any nation, its economy, and its people, and the reason to do so would be to splinter the civil society into warring factions, or to exploit such factions as may already have existed, and magnify them. Any nation is ripe for revolution when its people are sufficiently primed, and dissatisfaction is the best way to prime them. Obama’s policies are surely driving greater dissatisfaction as the prices of food and fuel skyrocket, the value of the dollar plummets, and real unemployment is at greater than 16%, and by some calculations, substantially higher. The nature of statist revolutions requires calamity, catastrophe, and emergencies, under the auspices of which governments extend their control.
When writing his memoirs, Herbert Hoover characterized collectivist revolutionaries’ actions this way:
“Every collectivist revolution rides in on a Trojan horse of “Emergency”. It was a tactic of Lenin, Hitler and Mussolini… The invasion of New Deal Collectivism was introduced by this same Trojan horse.” – Hoover’s Memoirs: The Great Depression 1929-1941
What Hoover identified is the ultimate methodology upon which collectivist demagogues naturally rely: The emergency. Under emergencies, whether actual or fictional, governments rely upon the extraordinary power to suspend liberties and natural rights, and to otherwise violate laws it is ordinarily sworn to uphold. Barack Obama is setting us up for just such an event. What do you suppose is the purpose of the Occupiers? Their role is to make the American people call upon their government for aid. These poor useful idiots, most of them, are too blind to see that they will be the first people sacrificed in the name of such an emergency.
It’s time to face the full horrors of what Obama’s presidency holds in store. Most of us are accustomed to believing that “it couldn’t happen here,” but the truth is that it is happening here. It’s time we put a stop to it, and defeating Obama in 2012 is just the start.
