IBD: Watchdog Press Yawns Over Obama Socialist Ties

Modern environmentalism is about controlling the means of production.

Investor’s Business Daily editorializes:

Last month, a former Marxist professor recounted a politically explosive tete-a-tete he had with Obama when he was a college student.

In his first-hand account, posted on AmericanThinker.com, John C. Drew, a Ph.D., said Obama expressed “doctrinaire” Marxist views, including the need for a new socialist U.S. government that would redistribute the nation’s wealth.

In fact, Drew noted that Obama was the fiercest of the true believers among campus Marxists at Occidental College in Los Angeles, and that he had to counsel him on pragmatics.

“Since I was a Marxist myself at the time, and had studied variations in Marxist theory,” he said, “I can state that everything I heard Obama argue was consistent with Marxist philosophy, including the ideas that class struggle was leading to an inevitable revolution and that an elite group of revolutionaries was needed to lead the effort”…

  1. I did my best to get my story into the mainstream media in 2008. Trust me, it was a frustrating experience. I’m feeling vindicated now, however, by all the subsequent information that verifies my take on young Obama’s ideological extremism. For a little bit on what it was like for me in 2008, see http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/09/even_republicans_rejected_info_about_obamas_past.html I expect it will be much harder for Obama to evade his past in 2012.

  2. After three years of this Administration, and listening to complain after complaint that Obama’s personal life before holding public office was a blank slate, with no ex-girlfriends, no ex-roomates, and no old school buddies to tell personal stories about the man ‘back in the day,’ we finally hear from a former professor who remembers speaking at some length with him.
    While not surprised by the revelation, I am disappointed in the *process* of information filtering that allowed this data to remain occulted.
    The problem with ALL ideologues is that the sophistication of their ideologies is limited to the capacity of the minds that conceive them, which are invariably far simpler than the real world in which the ideologies are anticipated to function. Thus all ideologies always malfunction in the real world.
