Dear Southern Guardian,

I think you have asked me the toughest question I've had in a long time. I may have to dodge it.

Is he a Socialist? Is he a Communist? I know he has pledged to transform America. I know the results of his policies include taking money from people and spending it for the benefit of his supporters. He has increased the power of the Presidency at the expense of Congress, and in contempt of the Courts. He has relied on government control of the economy rather than private control. He has slighted our traditional allies, and provided encouragement to our enemies.

Is he doing this because he is a puppet? Is he full of hate for the US and it's "colonialism" and wants to teach it a lesson? Does he see himself as "Royalty" to be pampered and agreed with, and is building a court of sycophants and "yes men", both individuals and corporations, at the expense of the country? Is he a Socialist or Communist?

I have my opinions, but that's all they are. If some one said "Prove he's a Socialist," I couldn't. If I support any of those opinions, the response will be "You're just a bigoted, redneck, homophobic, racist, hater," and all reasonable discussion ends.

My honest opinion, though? He's doing Socialist and Communist things with the goal of making himself triumphantly powerful over the US. Winning a battle against the "Great Satan" that his upbringing taught him to hate.

With respect,
Charles1952

So does this make him a Communist? Yes or No? It's clear that this is what you believe, and why you are so reluctant to admit it, I don't know why.

Dear Southern Guardian,

Let me try to explain my difficulty.

Take the ever-popular question, "Is Obama a Secret Muslim?" Well, he has Muslim Brotherhood advisors, he was brought up as a Muslim, he's said the Muslim call to prayer is the prettiest sound in the world, he's made verbal slips which relate to the Islamic world, he bowed to a Muslim head of state, he doesn't seem to care much for Christianity. Yet with all that, he says he's a Christian.

So, is he a Muslim? Or, does he think that sucking up to Muslims will buy him peace? Or does he think the Islamic movement can be manipulated to meet his other goals? Does he want to be Secretary-General of the UN and needs Muslim support?

Again, I can guess, but I just don't know. My opinion on this subject, as well as my opinion on his Socialism, isn't based on fact or certainity, it's a worthless opinion.

I would like to see him defeated at every step, because he is pushing the same ideas that Socialists support, the same ideas that Muslims support, but is he either one? I'm really sorry, but I just don't know.

With respect,
Charles1952

U.S.S.R. = Communist
Nazi Germany = socialists
You make the choice. It is like the pot calling the kettle black.
I personally like Glenn Beck. Not ashamed to say it either.
When I first heard Beck about five or six years ago. I thought he was nuttier than skippy peanut butter.
He was on the radio when I would come home form work. Sometimes I would listen sometimes I wouldn't. After a while I started no notice that the main stream media would report on something that I had heard on Beck's show weeks earlier. Only they would leave out pertinent information.
You have to have an understanding of satire to really understand Beck. He goes on these off the wall rants that are really quite strange but funny. (have we forgotten humor? )
I learned about George Soros from Beck. I also learned about acorn and the black panther voting fraud in Chicago from Beck.I also I learned what is really going on the Arizona border .
True he is a religious man so I can see how that might a problem to some of you.
In a case like this you have to look past the man and to the message. Was his message true ? Beyond a shadow of a doubt his message was true. Our liberties are being threatened. Mean while we sit here and argue about the man. What a bunch of morons. Myself included. Are we not better than this?

If he says what people want to hear what is the problem? Why would he have the establishment so pissed off if he just said what they wanted to hear. You my friend have obviously never listened to his radio show.
Right now Glenn has the third highest-ranked national radio talk show among adults ages 25 to 54

Could it be that he is part of the reason that some of us are waking up? If so then I say Kudos to Glenn Beck.

.... I'm sorry, you think that the Nazis were socialists? That should come as a surprise to the ghosts of the Social Democrats who were worked to death in Concentration Camps.

If Manson killed no one, then Hitler killed no one.

People should be free to assist the less fortunate from their own pockets. It is not the role of the governing to sieze our assets and profits and give to their deemed needy. That is not nor should be any of their business oitside of tax write offs.

WHAT!? Did you not really know Nazi is short for National Socialist? Surely you can save face by saying you are joking then you can be half embarrassed instead of full blown, yet biligerently, and blatently ignorant?

The NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers Party = Nazi) were a type of socialist. It's right there in the name.


By your methodology todays American Communist Party really do want to kill millions and enslave the population, right? After all, Mao and Stalin were communist. Or are you going to say they weren't "real" communist?

(Facepalm)
Ok, time for a history lesson I see. The National Socialist German Workers' Party, or Nazi Party, was founded in 1920. It's only link to socialism was the name, which seems to have been inserted to deliberately lure working people away from Marxism. Nazism itself was about as right-wing as it's possible to get. It was anti-Communist (indeed anti-Marxist and anti-left), anti-Semitic, anti-monarchist and anti-liberal. It was also virulently nationalistic and racist. After Hitler came to power (he was never elected by the way) he cracked down on the left-wing political parties in Germany, including the Social Democrats, the Communists and everyone who had opposed him. The lucky ones fled into exile. The less lucky ones ended up in Concentration Camps. The really unlucky ones were shot.
So - the Nazis, despite having the name in their title, which was something of a misnomer, were not Socialists.

No, as Socialists want the Govt to do it.

Beck and many others here want the individual to do it.

Maybe get your BS together, before it is pitched.

I give 10% of my income to charity every year. What do you give?


I don't need the Govt stealing more of MY paycheck to give to others.

There's no difficulty at all in answering this question. Either you believe that Obama is a Communist and a Muslim or you don't. Simple. If you feel there's not enough evidence that he is either of these two, then you don't believe him to be either one, and if you believe there is enough evidence that he is, then you believe him to be. Make up your mind.

Sometimes I question if Obama is American.

Some things that are anti-American.

NDAA
Gitmo
Personal Kill Lists


Could go on, but whats the point.

He did try to close Gitmo, but every state that thought that the trials would be moved to it screamed like little girls. He has stated that he's going to try again. Blame Shrub for taking advantage of a legal black hole.

You know what, I came across as hostile, and after re-reading your post, while you add some BS, was more positive in nature that what I gave you credit for. I apologize for that.

I, like many others, do not want, nor believe the Govt should be stealing from us, to give to others.
I give 10%, and more then that in time as well.
Most people have stopped doing this, as they see the Govt doing that job.

The Govt has no business is this and it is Socialism.
