Let's keep adding to Obama's list of radical friends.... As per usual, this Gentleman just happens to be from Chicago. Surprise!!!!

The video says it all and apparently an average citizen with a camera is not allowed to question a Congressmen who works for Us.


Rep. Danny K. Davis, or as Obama refers to him, one of the best Congressman in the country, receiving an award from People’s World, a group that seeks “to popularize the ideas of Marxism”. Watch the whole video to see Rebel Pundit get shut down as soon as he mentions the Communist Party, the place where Davis was leaving from:

McCarthyism

McCarthyism is the practice of making accusations of disloyalty, subversion, or treason without proper regard for evidence.



I thought this country got through this period a long time ago....but I guess not.

Indeed they do. I suspect membership is mandatory in order to gain the Big Labor vote and Support especially in Chicago.

Obama is no stranger to the DSA and certainly would not have risen to power without their support.


Obama’s socialist backing
goes back at least to 1996, when he received the endorsement of the
Chicago branch of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) for an
Illinois state senate seat. Later, the Chicago DSA newsletter
reported that Obama, as a state senator, showed up to eulogize Saul
Mendelson, one of the “champions” of “Chicago’s democratic left”
and a long-time socialist activist. Obama’s stint as a “community
organizer” in Chicago has gotten some attention, but his relationship
with the DSA socialists, who groomed and backed him, has been generally
ignored.

www.aim.org...

This was utterly ignored by the media during the 2008 campaign. Yet the media sent its henchman to comb throughout the entire state of Texas this year to turn over every rock in search of dirt on Rick Perry.

I don't support a pure socialist economy...but it is an economic model, not a form of government.

A Republican form of government can have a socialist economic model...there is no conflict.

Here's some more info that Chicago is proud of.

Ties to the old Soviet Union ....

and maybe even Obama & Co.


The American Communist Party was born in Chicago in 1919 and headquartered there until 1927, when its headquarters and newspaper, the Daily Worker, moved to New York. During the 1920s, Chicago's party members dealt with factionalism, reorganization, and police persecution. Before 1925, membership hovered around 2,400, organized into 36 neighborhood and union groups in the needle, metal, and building trades; printing; railroads; and food industries. Through party-organized workers' schools, foreign-language federations, fraternal organizations, and literary, youth, and theater groups, party influence extended beyond its membership. The party also fought racial discrimination in factories, and in October 1925 organized the American Negro Labor Congress to bring African Americans into the labor movement.

In the 1930s, the Communist Party in Chicago reached its largest audience through organizing the unemployed and protesting evictions and cuts in relief. Black Belt organizers recruited protesters at Washington Park, while Communists in Back of the Yards built alliances with community activists like Roman Catholic bishop Bernard Sheil and Saul Alinsky. When police killed two black workers protesting an eviction in 1931, Communists led an interracial funeral procession estimated at 60,000 by the party and 15,000 by the Chicago Daily News.

"Commies"!? Really? You do realize it's the year 2012 right?

Besides, it's just an ideology. It won't hurt you, I promise. Hysterical finger-pointing and black-balling, on the other hand, is very dangerous.

It takes all kinds to push the country forward. We ought not be scared by different thoughts and philosophies.Or is your America to fragile? So tenuous that it can't withstand different ideas?

And we can't forget the Co-Founder of the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panthers:



Bobby Lee Rush (born November 23, 1946) is the U.S. Representative for Illinois's 1st congressional district, serving since 1993. He is a member of the Democratic Party.




After dropping out of high school, Rush joined the U.S. Army in 1963 but went AWOL and received an honorable discharge in 1968.[2] Throughout the 1960s Rush was involved in the civil-rights movement. He worked in civil-disobedience campaigns in the South, and co-founded the Illinois chapter of the Black Panthers in 1968 and was made its "defense minister".




The district is located principally on the South Side of Chicago. It is a minority-majority district and has a higher percentage of African Americans (65%) than any other congressional district in the nation. [color=cyan]Rush has the distinction of being the only person to defeat President Barack Obama in an election for public office, when Obama challenged him in a primary election in 2000.[1] Rush is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Hard evidence is a little tough to come by with Obama so we are forced to examine what we can by studying his relationships, czar appointees, affiliations, the workshops that he taught and the books that he assigned for his students to read.

I would love to see his files and schedules from his years as Illinois State Senator 1997-2004. Can't find them for some reason. Those would be some very telling years based on his connections and relationships in Chicagoland.

More to come... The professor Bell /Rev. Wright relationship and sermons. Good Stuff. Wright even published it. Obama probably didn't even know that one of his favorite professors from Harvard came to speak at his local church about Racialism. Of course not... Stay tuned

At the root of our socialism is a profound commitment to democracy, as means and end. Democracy is not simply one of our political values but our means of restructuring society.


www.dsausa.org...

The word "Democracy" isn't mentioned in the Declaration of Independence, or the Constitution, or the Constitutions of any of the States. This is because America was set up as a Republic and not a majoritarian form of government as democracy is.

Of course democracy is mentioned in the Federalist No's. 10 14 48 and 63. And each time it is mentioned, it is specifically to point out how wretched it is. This is the reason that the founding fathers put the Republican form of government clause into the Constitution.

Democracy is a system where 51% of people can establish a totalitarian regime, suppress minorities and still remain democratic. This is inherently incompatible with real freedom. Our founding fathers clearly understood this and this is why the compact formed by the states establishes and guarantees a Republic.

this is where you play yourself like a fiddle... The entire controversy is made up and
you cannot except that the guy is just a man, so you have to figure out ways to
bridge your hatred with some sort of contrived evidence so that your hatred appears
to be justified to you.

You wanna know about Obama??? Look in the mirror, there he is staring back at you buddy.

Guilt by association didn't work in 2008.

It isn't going to work in 2012 after he has been POTUS for 3 years.


But this is all conservatives have...the fear game...try to scare people into voting AGAINST Obama...because they damn well know they can't try to convince people to vote FOR their candidate.

Sounds like what the Conservatives in this country are doing with Gays and Lesbians.

But yeah....Obama is the evil one



And I don't what to tell you...you obviously won't accept facts. Socialism is not a form of government...it is an economic model....period. America is already partially socialist...so I'm not sure where all the fear mongering comes from.

Here's another "list".
(a very looong list !)


The List of Loons:
Obama's Close Friends & Associates


Pay close attention to this character:

Jeff Jones -- Terrorist


[color=cyan]Jeff Jones is a co-author of Obama's Stimulus Bill. He used to be a terrorist. Jones was a national officer in Students for a Democratic Society, a founding member of Weatherman, and a leader of the Weather Underground.

Jones is part of the Apollo Group, which was founded by Van Jones -- Obama's "Green Czar." The Apollo Group, under Jeff and Van Jones’ direction, basically wrote Barack Obama’s stimulus bill.

During World War II, Jones' father was a pacifist and conscientious objector who was assigned for the duration of the war, to a civilian work camp in the Sierra Mountains of California. Ironic, a pacifist breading a terrorist.



and this one:

Marilyn Katz -- Head of Security -- SDS


Marilyn Katz is a Chicago public relations consultant and political operative, who has known David Axelrod for 30 years. Katz claims it was she who introduced Obama to the "activist network" in Chicago.



AND:

Wade Rathke -- Weatherman


Former Weatherman Rathke is the founder of Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN). The group has had its federal funding cut within the last several days over charges of widespread corruption among many of its affiliate offices across the country. The organization was captured on video advising a pair of undercover journalists from Big Government.com on how to evade taxes and set up a brothel featuring underage child sex slaves. Rathke and brother, Dale, have left ACORN after a nearly-$1 million embezzlement scandal. He then founded–surprise–ACORN International.




Gotta Luv these guys !!

Taxpayers and Voters -- Beware !!

In other words, stretch the truth a bit.

Wow, okay, so if I read a book by Marx or have lunch with a Chinese national or otherwise explore other philosophies - I'm a "commie"?

IMHO, Obama is more like Bush lite than Marx,

Kept Patriot Act
Kept Guantanamo
Reneged on troop withdrawals in ME
Put troops in Africa
Most money from Corporations than any other President
Pushing for interent controls

So, I think you are wrong no matter which angle you pursue this silly argument. You are just grasping at straws. It's silly rabbit holes like this that give actual conspiracies a bad reputation.

All Obama "associates" of SDS and Weather Underground backgrounds
spawn from these two:


(from the list of loons)

Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn -- Terrorists And Communists


William Charles Ayers (born December 26, 1944) is an American elementary education theorist and former leader in the anti-war movement that opposed U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. He is known for the radical nature of his activism, which began within the anti-war movement of the 1960s. In 1969 he co-founded the violent radical left organization the Weather Underground, which conducted a campaign of bombing public buildings during the 1960s and 1970s. He is now a professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, holding the titles of Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar.

Bernardine Rae Dohrn (née Ohrnstein, born January 12, 1942) is an American former leader of the Anti-Vietnam War radical organization Weather Underground. She is an Associate Professor of Law at Northwestern University School of Law and the Director of Northwestern's Children and Family Justice Center.

never hurts to have a touch of socialism with your capitalism...all things are not created equal, the founding fathers understood this, hense why there is a commerce clause. without a bit of synthetic jiggering of the economy, it goes from capitalism, to corporatism, to corporate facism pretty quickly.

Can you subscribe to a socialist economic model and uphold the constitution?
Sure, I don't see why not. your personal preference should not interfere with your jobs and the constrains of it...it might allow you to draft new concepts and hybrids that fit both within the constitutional framework while having a ideological simularity.

Can a christian be a soldier? sure...their ideology may be very different from their job, but they don't make that an issue.

It's funny because Conservatives use the Republican form of government so they can
get the state to control people and discriminate in state. Then they act surprised when
the Federal Government steps in to address the tyranny imposed at the state level.
Cough... slavery,,, Cough.... Jim Crow,,, Cough... Separate but equal,,, Cough... Papers please,,,
