Barack Obama has a thing for Marxists. He befriends them, listens to their counsel, and he even hires them to work in his campaign. And they seem to feel the warmth. President Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua, who led a revolution there in 1979, says Barack Obama's presidential bid is a "revolutionary" phenomenon, and Americans are "laying the foundations for a revolutionary change." A captured computer revealed that an unknown person chatted with Marxist FARC guerillas on Obama's behalf (they believed), stating he would be the next President and US policy towards Columbia would change. Frank Marshall Davis, a dear Obama friend and mentor was as a member of the Communist Party USA. Barack Obama just seems to attract Marxists.
If the people he surrounds himself with are any indication of his core beliefs, a higher capital gains tax to punish the rich, even if it diminishes actual tax revenue, may be only the beginning. Obama's Official campaign blogger, Sam Graham-Felsen, a former writer for the leftist Nation magazine and a contributor to the Socialist Viewpoint, is certainly a believer in class warfare.
The capitalist ruling class of the United States exercises a virtual dictatorship not only over American society, but also over the entire world. This capitalist class rule is the basic cause of the poverty, wars and the degradation of the natural environment.
After being expelled from Socialist Action in 1999, we formed Socialist Workers Organization in an attempt to carry on the project of building a nucleus of a revolutionary party true to the historic teachings and program of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Trotsky.

For me, hearing Chomsky speak for the first time was a life-changing experience. His ability to take preconceptions and destroy them-to completely remodel one's understanding of reality with cold, hard facts-blew me away. When I left what was then the ARCO Forum last fall, I felt as though I had been through the Matrix and back. Chomsky really has this effect because he bombards you with evidence and logic, not empty rhetoric. It is nearly impossible to hear him or read him-once you've actually checked his facts yourself (he even cites page numbers in public addresses)-and deny what he's saying.
"The terrorist attacks were major atrocities. In scale they may not reach the level of many others, for example, Clinton's bombing of the Sudan with no credible pretext, destroying half its pharmaceutical supplies and killing unknown numbers of people."
"If the Nuremberg laws were applied today, then every Post-War American president would have to be hanged."
"Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state."
"Any dictator would admire the uniformity and obedience of the U.S. media."
"The United States is unusual among the industrial democracies in the rigidity of the system of ideological control - "indoctrination," we might say - exercised through the mass media. "
"Everybody's worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there's a really easy way: stop participating in it."
"I have often thought that if a rational Fascist dictatorship were to exist, then it would choose the American system."
We continue to have an optimistic outlook about the revolutionary potential of the world working class to rule society in its own name-socialism. We are optimistic that the working class, united across borders, and acting in its own class interests can solve the devastating crises of war, poverty, oppression, and environmental destruction that capitalism is responsible for.

Thanks for the article. Obama’s errors in judgment concerning the people he associates with is mind boggling.
I’ve known for sometime he’s a communist. But the MSM just doesn’t get it.
Can’t anti-Americans like Chomsky and Obama’s other Commie cronies be arrested and jailed for their treasonous statements?
And they’re all jockeying to be the new TASS and Pravda.
The propaganda from the left will soon turn bitter.
Already it is taboo to talk about a number of different subjects such as; Just who the hell is this Obama cat and from whence did he really come.
Many elitist liberals and their naivete followers are of the same ilk as Ole Daniel Webster, would sell their sorry misguided souls to Satan for four years in power.
I feel somewhat of a fool and cheated having wished for Hillary's demise and now we have something far worse as the potential Democrat candidate in the form of a Marxist wannabe.
Just the lowly opinion of a red state wannabe.
Yes, a crypto Communist.
I remember awhile ago somebody asked if there was a media conspiracy to promote leftism and attack Conservatives and the GOP, and the answer was “no.” It’s worse than a conspiracy, it’s a consensus. You don’t have to plot with a consensus, you’re all already on the same page.
Now what is all the whining about John McCain about?
Who is insisting that he would be as bad or even worse than Obama?
Oh I'm sure they do, they just don't want to tell it. If they did, their star would surely loose, plus cause problems for their party's future candidate.
That's enough for me! I'm for Obama!
When a compilation is made of the nefarious actions of the two Democrap candidates it will be a very thick volume.
Only socialist/communists and the uniformed, unwashed horde of simpletons would vote for either one of these.
As to McCainiac, I still hope and pray for a miracle.
somebody asked if there was a media conspiracy to promote leftism and attack Conservatives and the GOP,
Which is why it isn’t so difficult to believe Noam got something right when he said:
“Any dictator would admire the uniformity and obedience of the U.S. media.”
“The United States is unusual among the industrial democracies in the rigidity of the system of ideological control - “indoctrination,” we might say - exercised through the mass media. “
As to McCainiac, I still hope and pray for a miracle.
If he wins, I just hope it isn’t a daily bad surprise fest.
Some of the ideas already expressed, indicate the possibility.
Except “Gnome” believes the media is Conservative.
Swift Boating as in telling the truth about a candidate? The truth has a hard time seeing the light of day in the MSM. It takes dedicated citizens that refuse to be deceived. Imagine what it would be like without the web? Obama will be a disaster if he is elected, an absolute disaster. Alinsky taught that power is everything, and you say and do whatever it takes to get to power. With a complicit press behind them Obama and Clinton follow that philosophy. It would have been unthinkable for a tool like Sam to work in a serious campaign just a few years ago. The march left has accelerated, even our GOP movers and shakers suck up to the Global Warming hoax and McCain rags on a perfectly good anti-Obama campaign ad. It’s depressing.
The Dem convention should be a hoot, but I await it with some trepidation. There are too many uninformed people out there.
Except Gnome believes the media is Conservative.
Well, I suppose from his perspective anything is capable of becoming whatever he wants it to be.
