What Obama Is Really Saying

Buried in my Google alerts, the following, entitled "There should be no doubt now that Obama is Socialist, Marxist, and Communist," appeared over the weekend in my inbox. In my view, the essay is an excellent analysis. Excerpt:
...The first thing to note is that he opened up his speech with a lie -
Tonight, I speak to you not as a candidate for President, but as a citizen - a proud citizen of the United States, and a fellow citizen of the world.
Do any of you out there truly believe that as a regular Joe American that you could go to Berlin in front of the Brandenburg Gate or the Victory Column and give a speech to 200,000 Germans? Is there anyone out there that as a regular Joe American would be able to get an audience with the German Chancellor? He was obviously there as a candidate for President otherwise his campaign would not have financed this trip. Also - pay particular attention to his use of “citizen.” It pops up frequently throughout this speech.

Remember, the term “Good Citizen” was used in communist Russia to delineate those who supported the government versus those who did not. Those who opposed the Russian government and Tsars were immediately sent to “re-education camps” because they were not good citizens and their speech against the government was politically incorrect (yes - this term originated in communist russia as well).

Additional reading: "Barack Obama's Stealth Socialism" from Investor's Business Daily, the first installment in the series "The Audacity of Socialism." Excerpt:
During his NAACP speech earlier this month, Sen. Obama repeated the term at least four times. "I've been working my entire adult life to help build an America where economic justice is being served," he said at the group's 99th annual convention in Cincinnati.

And as president, "we'll ensure that economic justice is served," he asserted. "That's what this election is about."...


"Economic justice" simply means punishing the successful and redistributing their wealth by government fiat. It's a euphemism for socialism.

In the past, such rhetoric was just that — rhetoric. But Obama's positioning himself with alarming stealth to put that rhetoric into action on a scale not seen since the birth of the welfare state....
