If it is your opinion that he is a Communist, very succinctly indicate your reason(s) why.
If you do not believe he is a Communist, also provide substantive reasons that back this up.
(Commun)ity Activ(ist) = Communist
How do we know you’re not a communist?
COMMUNIST STATIST ELITIST ALINSKYITE
There are more but why bother, he needs
to go in any case, and all his infestation
I am certain he is a Communist and I am equally certain that he understands Communism about as well as he understands Capitalism.
He’s a tool
Is the Pope Catholic?
If he’s not a Communist, he’s the next closest thing to one.
Is a pigs A$$ pork?
Of course he is a communist! How could he possibly be anything but when communism is all that he has ever known?
Yes he is.
He was conceived by communists.
He was raised by communists.
He was tutored by communists.
He sought out and had relationships with communists all throughout his formative years.
His autobiography was co-written by a communist.
His administration has hired many noted communists.
His tactics and political actions are definitely communist.
He’s trying to redistribute wealth with the purposeful end result that everyone is equally impoverished. He also wants to oversee a ruling party of elites (himself) who are free to vacation and spend on the taxpayers backs. (Michelle’s ski vacation right now - her 16th vacation in less than 4 years is an example of this.)
Commie through and through...”very succinctly indicate your reason”. Can’t think of anything NON communist he’s done.
My response to those who deny that 0bama is a communist -
How would he be acting differently if he were?
As Ted Baxter answered Murray under John XXIII, “I think so. He used to be.” Times have changed, thank goodness.
communist - everything does
Yes. I hadn’t realized this was still a debatable issue...
Please do not refer to BHO as a tool, tools are useful.
If it looks like a duck.............
You sure to get some fair and balanced responses to this here on FR.
MrB, I love that answer! Trouble is—because he’s not identified as a commie, he’s even worse; he’s a communist spy with almost unlimited power.
...look at the people he appointed, take any ten. You’ll have your answer
No, he’s a Euro-style Social Democrat
For all the above stated reasons, of course he is a communist.
The only question is if our media is also communist since they clearly have avoided any sort of investigation into this as well as any other legitimate issue with Obama.
But no matter how much they may fit every definition of the term communism, you can bet that Obama and the media will avoid association with the term.
Heck, they don’t even want to switch back to the color ‘red’ for political party election recognition which traditionally switched every couple elections. That association (red/communist/democrat) would be just a little too close and obvious.
He is a POS
He was trained and is experienced in communist agitation, who else would attend the Jeremiah Wright church for 20 years?
Really though, at the moment he is facist and plans to morph into communism when the time is right. Turning America into a giant prison camp (North Korea) is the eventual goal of all leftists.
100% irrefutable proof positive he is a Marxist Communist with Maoist leanings.
My proof? He told the entire country to judge him by the people he surrounded himself with. He surrounded himself with Marxists, Communists, Maoists so CASE CLOSED he is a Marxist Communist.
To say otherwise would be calling him a liar and I am sure that is a one way ticket to an IRS audit and or being labeled a racist.
Obama is the guy Castro told Bernadine Dohrn to find back in the 1970s. An acceptable black candidate who could shame “guilty whites” into voting for him. He is the cutout for legacy Marxist interests that began targeting America for incremental takeover as part of the comintern effort originally launched in the 1920s and only perfected under Andropov’s KGB in the 1960s.
This international movement never gave up even after their patron empire collapsed — and in Comrade Baryosha they finally found their guy. He isn’t just a communist. He IS communism.
Yes, he’s a communist.
A) You are judged by your associates. Obama associates with Marxists, from childhood to today. Frank Marshall Davis, unnamed college Marxist associates from his biography, Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, The New Party, Van Jones, Valerie Jarrett, Cass Sunstein, etc.
B) His 20 year+ membership in a Black Liberation Theology church. This “theology” is nothing more than warmed over Marxism. Obama doesn’t have the defense that he was a member of this church out of family tradition or convenience either, he joined them of their own volition, as an adult.
C) His actions - attempting to nationalize major industries, providing material and military support to revolutionary groups toppling governments worldwide, and taking many steps which seem designed to purposefully undermine the US economy.
D) His words - “We need to spread the wealth around...”, need I say more?
Res Ipsa Loquitur.
The Monty Python Witch/Duck/Wood test:
Does the Pope crap in the woods?
I would be inclined to call him a fascist myself, at least in the short term.
He relies on a system of handing power over to private organizations to wring out donations, and to gain cover. He doesn’t do overt control by the government, but prefers to hide behind regulations and other forms of coercion. This is pretty much just like the classic style of fascists in history.
While maybe at some time in the future he’ll try to break out to straight up government ownership, that’s too blatant a flag for him. He seems to prefer Fabian methods.
Yes. He supports/believes or has done...
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war. (CHECK)
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war. (CHECK)
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.(MAYBE)
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.(CHECK)
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination. (CHECK)
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N. (CHECK- he sure supports it)
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)(CHECK)
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.(CHECK I believe there is a newspaper article/picture showing he supports such, he supports Conyers reelection)
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.(CHECK, he didn’t say didly about Ruth Ginsburg or stick to his own))
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. (CHECK)
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights. (CHECK!!!)

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.(CHECK)

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions. (CHECK)
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. (CHECK—SEAL movie etc)
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. (CHECK repel of DADT yada)
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”(CHECK)
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.” (CHECK)
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.” (CHECK)
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.(CHECK)
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.” (CHECK)
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat]. (CHECK)
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals. (CHECK?)
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents. (CHECK)
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [”]united force[”] to solve economic, political or social problems.(CHECK)
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike. (CHECK)
That many checks off the list—I would say, YES, he is communist.
Geez, he’s professed Marxism ever since the time he was steeped in it through his upbringing at the feet of his mother and whatever it was used by Frank Marshall Davis, throughout college, had as bestest buddies Marxist domestic terrorists, and has never repudiated it. What is there to wonder about?
No, his economic policies are fascist not communist.
Of course, the CPUSA has regularly endorsed Democrats (John Kerry too) as candidates, but that speaks volumes about the smooth merger of Communist ideals and the Democratic Party platform.
It would be a lot harder to prove he’s not communist.
Do Leopards have spots?Do bears crap in the woods?The answer to all of those questions is the same.YES.
Perhaps, but fascism is as far left as you can go while pretending not to be communist.
A Muslim Communist.
Obama is usefull-—to the Communists, the Atheists, The Homosexual.
1-Doesn’t like the Constitution,
2-Doesn’t like the other two branches of gov’t getting in his way,
3-Doesn’t like Capitalism,
4-Doesn’t like Industry,
5-Promotes centralized gov’t run healthcare,
6-Disinterested in a strong nat’l defense,
7-Disinterested in protecting our borders,
8-Promotes gun control,
9-Undermines the free exercise of religion and free speech,
If there’s a better example of “communist” behavior, I’d like to see it.
Red Diaper baby = Adult Commie.
No, he’s a Euro-style Social Democrat
Familiarity with Trevor Louden’s research - either his extensive “Obama Files” at http://www.newzeal.blogspot.com or his new book, Barak Obama and the Enemies Within, would have saved us this silly poll.
Ok, true enough. However, your list is redundant. ;-)
