Barack Obama: A Step in the Left Direction

I've been writing a lot lately about the relationship between Barack Obama and terrorist William Ayers. The national media is just now beginning report on that relationship. Because it's important that the masses know about the Obama/Ayers connection, I will continue to post on that issue, and I hope the national media will delve much deeper into the story than they have so far.

That being said, I now need to say that Barack Obama's relationship with terrorists is not the only thing that is extremely troubling about this man who would be President of the United States of America. Americans need also to be aware of the tremendous support that Senator Obama is receiving from known communists and socialists.

Let me begin by making one thing clear. I am not saying that Barack Obama is a communist. His ideology does, however, lean significantly in that direction. Furthermore, although Obama himself may not be a communist, many who are communists are excited about the prospect of Barack Obama becoming President of the United States. While they do not see Obama as a communist, they do see his election as a significant step in the direction in which they want to take this country. But don’t take my word for it. Take the word of the American communists themselves.

Writing on, Matt Kennard, whose articles have appeared on the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) website, quotes CPUSA spokesman Sam Delgado. Delgado clearly expresses the hope and goal of American communists when he says, “I believe now we can achieve Communism in America within my lifetime, within the next 50 years.”

Sam Webb, the National Chairman of the Communist Party USA, outlines what he sees as the best way to get to a communist America. In his article entitled “New Times, New Opportunities,” written in April, 2008, Webb points out that neither Barack Obama nor Hillary Clinton is a “candidate of the left.” Keep in mind that when an avowed communist uses the words left or progressive, what he really means is communist.

While Webb points out that Obama is not a communist, he also describes how Obama’s election would lead to a furthering of the communist agenda for America.

The objective of this election is not to elect a candidate of the left or a Congress that is left in outlook. It isn’t doable at this moment. We wish it were, but in the spirit of Marxism, objectives should be grounded in concrete reality, not in wishes, not in flights of fancy that may momentarily soothe but come back to bite you in the end.

The reality of this moment is the following: the right wing has dominated political life for three decades and the task of the people’s movement is to dislodge them from power and create a more favorable political terrain on which tens of millions can fight and win going forward. In present circumstances the only way to do that is for this surging coalition to elect a Democratic Party president and increase the Democratic Party majorities in the Congress.

If that happens, it would not only constitute a tremendous victory for the Democratic Party, but also for tens of millions of people in this country and worldwide. It would bring closer that day when the movement fights for a more advanced political and economic program. (emphasis mine) There is no other way to get there from here.

Also on the CPUSA website, Erica Smiley and Dan Margolis further illustrate that the Communist Party USA is looking at this election as only a first step along the highway to a communist America.

The leading Democratic candidates represents the strongest opposition to the ultra-right we’ve ever seen in a presidential election.

This fight is winnable, and there is an actual strategy to win, a strategy that consists of more than playing at revolution and calling for chaos in the streets. Right now the elections are the most critical form of struggle; this is where we have the best shot of finally breaking the back of the ultra right. Afterwards, we will continue to build a united movement that can work to establish a real electoral alternative, and eventually to challenge the system overall. (emphasis mine)

The editorial board of the People’s Weekly World Newspaper, in another editorial for the CPUSA, reminds the faithful that even though “Barack Obama is not a left candidate,” he is a vehicle that Communists can use to get there.

A broad multiclass, multiracial movement is converging around Obama’s “Hope, change and unity” campaign because they see in it the thrilling opportunity to end 30 years of ultra-right rule and move our nation forward with a broadly progressive agenda.

The struggle to defeat the ultra-right and turn our country on a positive path will not end with Obama’s election. But that step will shift the ground for successful struggles going forward. (emphasis mine)

Do you need more evidence that those who are openly communist or socialist are strongly supporting Barack Obama? If so, let’s look at Progressives for Obama, a virtual “Who’s Who” of Socialists and Communists.

The four co-founders of this group are the following:

Bill Fletcher, Jr. – A principal organizer of the Black Radical Congress, an organization with ties to the Communist Party USA. When once asked to describe his politics, Fletcher said, “I am an unapologetic socialist. I believe that capitalism is destroying the planet."

Barbara Ehrenreich - Honorary Chairwoman of the Democratic Socialists of America who celebrated the Communist Manifesto with an article on her blog entitled “The Communist Manifesto Hits 160.”

Danny Glover – A strong supporter of Venezuela’s dictator Hugo Chavez, who has made guest appearances on Chavez's television and radio talk show, "Hello, President"; also a board member of Venezuela's TeleSUR news network, which Chavez created in 2005. Glover is receiving nearly $30 million from the Venezuelan government for a new movie that he is directing.

Tom Hayden - A principal organizer of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), who traveled during the Vietnam War to North Vietnam, Czechoslovakia, and Paris to meet with Communist North Vietnamese and Viet Cong leaders. Hayden called returning American POWs "liars, hypocrites and pawns" when they described their abuse in Viet Cong prisons.

Here are a few of the other fine Americans who have signed on to Progressives for Obama.

Carl Davidson – Was a national secretary of SDS who met with Cuba’s Fidel Castro. Davidson calls Castro “a remarkable man, with a photographic memory, wide knowledge and keen insights.”

Fred Klonsky - Former SDS member, son of leading CPUSA member Robert Klonsky and brother of Mike Klonsky who in the 1970s was the chairman of the Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist).

Susan Klonsky - Former SDS member and wife of Mike Klonsky.

Mark Rudd - Former leader of both SDS and Bill Ayers’ terrorist group Weather Underground.

Jane Fonda - "Hanoi Jane," former wife of Tom Hayden.

Robin D. G. Kelly - Former member of the Communist Workers Party.

I’m fully aware that to some, this post might sound like the ravings of a neo-McCarthyist. However, before you make that charge, understand that McCarthyism is the practice of making accusations against political opponents without sufficient evidence. I’m not alleging that anyone is a communist or a socialist. These are people who are openly involved in communist/socialist activities and organizations. These are people who are leaders of the communist parties in the United States. These are people who have clearly stated that the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States will be a step in furthering their communist agenda for America.

Americans had better wake up and quickly. We had better wake up before November 4.
