“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I choose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.” -Barack Hussein Obama
Why should we even care if our current President is a socialist? Because socialism and liberty (what America was founded upon) are diametrically opposed to one another. One represents individual freedom and the other represent individual mandates. With our Constitution being an anti-socialistic charter, we should be gravely concerned with the fact that President Obama advocates the tenets of Karl Marx from our Executive Branch. Part 1 of this article covered Obama’s influences of Black Liberation Theology. Let’s dig a little deeper to strengthen the veracity my supposition.
For those of you that may not know, a Czar is a person that is placed in charge of a governmental office or department. They are typically assigned political power over our economy without Congressional oversight. Here are some of the appointees that President Obama has surrounded himself with:
Regulatory Czar – Cass Sunstein – As a flaming proponent of socialism, Mr. Sunstein authors a book entitled, The Second Bill of Rights. Within this treatise, he writes, “In a variety of ways, subtle and less subtle, the public and private actions have made it most difficult for socialism to have any traction in the United States. It is even possible that desirable redistribution is more likely to occur through climate change policy.”
Science Czar – John Holdren – Mr. Holdren holds an extreme view of population control. In a book he co-authored titled EcoScience-Population, Resources, Environmenthe wrote that:
- Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not (pg. 837)
- The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation’s drinking water or in food (pg. 787-788)
- A transnational “Planetary Regime” should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans’ lives — using an armed international police force. (pg. 917)
Oh, by the way, this radical calls for “revenue transfers” via Cap and Trade legislation. Isn’t revenue transfer another term for wealth redistribution? Listen to the video for yourself to find out. If you still have doubts about this one, even UN Official Ottamar Edenhofer declared that, “We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.”
Manufacturing Czar – Ron Bloom – Ron Bloom has gone on record touting the tenets of Chinese Communist Mao when he said, “We know that the free market is nonsense. We know that the whole point is to game the system. We kinda agree with Mao Zedong that power comes largely from the barrel of a gun.”
Climate Czar – Carol Browner – What attracted President Obama to appoint her as Czar? Could it be the fact that she was a former commissioner for the Socialist International’s Commission for a Sustainable World Society? Let it sink in that no one voted for these Communists. They were all hand-picked by our President.
KARL MARX VS. BARACK OBAMA
For my readers that are not interested in reading an encyclopedia at the moment, I have composed a quick contrast of the father of Communism to our current President. The viewpoints of Marx have been directly extracted from his writings in Communist Manifesto.
|Proposed for heavy progressive or graduated income tax.||Although the top 25% already pays 70% of total taxes, Obama campaigns daily for a heavier progressive income tax on businesses. (Source: www.irs.gov)|
|Proposed for public schools only.||Public school proponent. Killed DC private school voucher program within first 100 days of presidency.|
|Centralized/state-controlled communication||For Net Neutrality – increases the scope of bureaucratic power of FCC|
|State owns means of production/private markets||Government takeover of General Motors, AIG, etc.|
|Often used “proletariat/working class” rhetoric||Campaigns on “middle class/working class” rhetoric|
|Against representative government||Ignored and bypassedAmerica’s representative government (Congress) to pass Obamacare,When the representative branch of government (Congress) voted against Cap and Trade, Obama circumvented this roadblock by passing separate EPA legislation (via Executive Order) to restrict coal emissions anyway.|
While I am sure many more inferences can be added to the aforesaid table; the overall goal of these comparisons is to expose the influential forces of President Obama’s policy making. Whether it’s his open admission of surrounding himself with Marxists, attending the church of an admitted Marxist for 20 years, appointing socialists as government officials or implementing socialists’ policies; one cannot deny the fundamental aspirations of his school of thought. Even his father penned these very words, “Theoretically, there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed.” (Source: East African Journal, July 1965). You might want to meditate on that quote for a while as the apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree. Any President that exemplifies Marxism while taking the oath to uphold and protect the US Constitution, is antithesis to the very freedom and oath that he swore to uphold in the first place.
