This is part 5 in our series of Barack Obama being a Marxist with proof. Be sure to check out the additional links at the end of this article which help prove Obama is definitely a Marxist.
Columbia University professor, Manning Marable, writing in the December Issue of British Trotskyist journal Socialist Review, alleges that Obama works with socialists “with backgrounds in the Communist Party”. He also says that Obama has read several of his books and fully understands what Socialism is.
Marable says, “a lot of the people working with him are, indeed, socialists with backgrounds in the Communist Party or as independent Marxists. There are a lot of people like that in Chicago who have worked with him for years…”.
Marable is a full supporter of President Obama and the two have been in close circles for may years.
Since the 1980s Dr Marable has been a regular speaker at DSA’s annual Socialist Scholars Conference, usually at held Cooper Union in New York. In the early 80s, Obama “went to socialist conferences at Cooper Union and African cultural fairs in Brooklyn”.
Marable was one of the founders of the New Party, which has communist ties, and Obama joined it in 1995 just before his State Senate run.
Several key New Party people knew Obama personally, including Carl Davidson , Obama’s friend and neighbour Quentin Young and long time colleague Congressman Danny K Davis.
Incidentally, when Dr Marable voted for Barack Obama, he voted for him not as a Democrat, but on the New York Working Families Party (WFP) line. Manning Marable is a member of the WFP which is a direct descendant of the now defunct New Party.
According to Marable, among the post-racial black leadership, Deval Patrick is the governor of Massachusetts, David Paterson is the governor of New York, Cory Booker is the mayor of Newark, New Jersey, and Harold Ford Jr is head of the Democratic Leadership Council – the right wing of the Democratic Party. Obama is a part of that cohort. He is more liberal than most of that group, but he is in it. The group is pragmatic and centrist. It cooperates with Republicans and tries to present a non-partisan or post-partisan appeal, the way Obama does. So you will see Republicans in some key positions in Obama’s administration.
This does not trouble Dr Marable, as a Marxist tactician, he understands that to win elections and promote his policies Obama has to be subtle. He must bring his opponents on board and be careful not to scare centrist voters.
Obama regularly sends text messages to millions of people. He just sent a message saying, “Don’t go away, now I need you to help govern.” There is a debate right now within the Obama campaign about whether to move fast or go more slowly. The argument is that there have been 10 elections for president between 1968 and 2004and Republicans have won seven of them. Obama is looking at the history and so are progressives who worked with him or critically endorsed him, like myself.
Obama is a communist, marxist and socialist and there is simply no denying the proof. You can check out our previous articles by clicking on the links below.
