More Evidence Ties Obama to Socialist Party

October 22nd, 2010
Aaron Klein, WorldNetDaily
Yet more evidence has emerged tying President Obama to the New Party, a Marxist-led socialist party that sought to infiltrate the Democratic Party and push it so far leftward it ultimately would become a socialist organization.
John Nichols, Washington correspondent for The Nation magazine, recalled speaking with Obama at New Party events in the 1990s.
“When we spoke together at New Party events in those days, he was blunt about his desire to move the Democratic Party off the cautious center where Bill Clinton had wedged it,” wrote Nichols in a January 2009 piece published at
WND previously reported on newspaper evidence showing Obama was listed as a member of the New Party.
The New Party worked alongside the controversial Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN.
In his piece, Nichols referenced quotes from Obama at a 2008 town hall meeting in suburban Atlanta where the politician labeled himself a “progressive.”
Wrote Nichols: “Barack Obama knows exactly what it means to say he is a ‘progressive.’ When he does so, he is not merely avoiding the word ‘liberal,’ as the sillier of his rightwing critics like to claim. Obama actually understands the subtle nuances of the American left.
“This is a man who moved to Chicago to be part of the political moment that began with the 1983 election of leftie Congressman Harold Washington as the city’s first African American mayor, who studied the organizing techniques of Saul ‘Rules for Radicals’ Alinsky, who worked with proudly radical labor leaders to defend basic industries and avert layoffs, who used his Harvard-minted legal skills to fight for expanded voting rights, who was mentored by civil libertarian legislator and federal judge Abner Mikva, who discussed the intricacies of Middle East policy with Edward Said and Rashid Khalidi, and who learned about single-payer health care from his old friend and neighbor Dr. Quentin Young, the longtime coordinator of Physicians for a National Health Program.
“And, famously, Obama did not just make anti-war sounds before Iraq was invaded, he appeared at an anti-war rally in downtown Chicago with a ‘War Is Not an Option’ sign waving at his side.”
Nichols authored a 2004 book with avowed Marxist Robert W. McChesney, founder of Free Press, a George Soros-funded organization with close ties to the White House that petitions for more government control of the news media.
