Here is what Wikipedia says about "former German Foreign Minister JOSCHKA FISCHER:"

In 1967 he became active in the German student movement and left-wing movement (post-)1968 (the so-called Spontis), first in Stuttgart and after 1968 in Frankfurt am Main. ... Fischer was a leader in several street battles fought by the anarchist Putzgruppe (literally "cleaning squad", with the first syllable being interpreted as an acronym for Proletarische Union für Terror und Zerstörung, "Proletarian Union for Terror and Destruction") which physically attacked a number of police officers. Photos of one such battle in March 1973, which were later to haunt him, show him clubbing policeman Rainer Marx, to whom he later publicly apologized.

His close friendship with Daniel Cohn-Bendit dates from this time. In 1971 he began working for the car manufacturer Opel and tried to organise his fellow workers for a coming communist revolution. (This was not organising on behalf of an ordinary labour union: the vast majority of Opel's workers had already been organised by IG Metall, the German metalworkers' union, decades earlier.) ...

In the Deutscher Herbst (German Autumn) of 1977, Germany was confronted with a series of left-wing terrorist attacks by the Red Army Faction (RAF). ... In May 1981 the Hessian Secretary of Commerce Heinz-Herbert Karry was murdered with a firearm that in 1973 had been transported, among other weapons stolen from an American army base, in Fischer's car. ... Fischer has also been criticised for attending a 1969 conference of the Palestine Liberation Organization, where Yasser Arafat called for an all-out war on Israel "until the end".

I like Wikipedia too for a reference point. But there are snobs who look down their noses at it. So, here’s confirmation:

“The German foreign minister remains the country’s most popular politician, even as his past as a left-wing militant comes back to haunt him”

Also:

"... former Congressman and Obama Adviser MEL LEVINE"

I remember this clown. He was tossed out of office in the big Republican congressional win of '94 even though he was sitting in a presumably safe liberal seat in San Fernando and Burbank.

You want to know why? HE NEVER SHOWED UP FOR WORK. If I recall correctly, he was the Congressman who had the most absences of anyone in the US House of Representatives.

It’s not so much a matter of snobbery as it is plain old unreliability. The leftists have free reign over Wiki.

Keep an eye on Fischer’s Wiki entry over the coming days. Now that he’s being tied to the democrats, the whitewashing is only a matter of time.

If we had an Administration with some stainless, forged steel ballz, they would have just stormed the damn place with FBI agents, arrested the lot of them, and shipped them all off to Gitmo for interrogation: it is damn suspicious to have that many subversive characters meeting in one place, they’re obviously up to no good.

BUT, as it is, and in the spirit of ‘changing the tone’ in Washington, nobody will say a damn thing about this at the White House, in fact they’ll all probably get an invite to a friendly Crawford Texas ‘Let Us Peer Into Your Soul Y’all’ party, so everybody can feel good about ‘em.

Thank you for posting that link. That is right-down alarming. While the writer is a socialist and I do not share his distaste for the US, he makes some excellent points. So the Obama trip to Germany and his relationship with Fischer is not all coincidental? Hmm. Obama is potentially even more dangerous than I thought.

Live in an area with little radio reception. I get the station that plays Rush, Sean and (sigh) IMUS in the morning.

I read on line that there are other talk show hosts who are revealing the truth about Obama.

The internet helps a lot.

I am more apt to call them Socialists. Communism in theory strives for a “classless” society. It’s pretty clear that they still wish to maintain “classes” and pit them against each other to serve their own ends.

Interesting quote by Fischer from you link

Fischer welcomes Obama’s call to “act and negotiate together” in the case of international crises.” If these diplomatic efforts fail, however, Obama will not hesitate “to pledge his allies to carry out tough alternatives,” Fischer stresses, and concludes: “Iran could become the first such example.”
When Dems are in power, it's ok to get into wars.

Small ones are best though, they they can back out abruptly and not give the troops left on the ground any support. (saves money, costs only lives of despised military personnel)

What's a few American troops killed and dragged through the streets to liberals?

Joschka Fischer to Teach at Princeton
Der Spiegel ^ | June 17, 2006 | dsl/spiegel

Former German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer has accepted a teaching gig at Princeton. Starting this fall, he will teach international crisis diplomacy to the next generation of American elites.

The Bush administration didn’t much like what Joschka Fischer had to say during the Iraq war.

So what will Washington say now that the former German foreign minister is trading his parliament seat for a professor’s cap at Princeton? This fall, Fischer will teach the next generation of American elites about international crisis diplomacy at the university.....

The evidence of the Ayers and Obama connections suggests to me that Ayers recognized Obama for his clear anti-American, socialist tendencies, and dramatically helped shape Barack's credentials for becoming a politcal force by helping him become chairman of the Annenberg Board and helping Barry raise funds to launch his IL senatorial campaign.

IMHO, there is no mere coincidence between Ayers' anti-American activism and who Barack and Michelle are at their core. The couple's fear is that voter recognition of the Ayers connection would rightly doom their by-acclamation elevation to Lord- and ladyship.

That Barry's inexperienced and Leftist handling of the Annenberg activities was a huge boondoggle, wasting tens of millions of charitable dollars without getting any significant results, should disqualify him for being anybody's Senator, US or State, let alone a major party's candidate for POTUS.
