One might expect the left-wing press to brush off such revelations; in fact, their ability to pooh-pooh increasingly shocking disclosures about Obama, his policies and the state of his presidency has become almost comical. What surprises is that some prominent conservatives don’t seem to think that disclosures concerning Obama’s history or political philosophy matter much anymore. Either that, or they simply don’t comprehend the contextual relevance.
Derrick Bell was a radical Marxist and racist with whom Barack Obama maintained a close relationship until the former’s death just last year. Concerning other questionable associates, from the racist Rev. Jeremiah Wright to domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, Obama has minimized these relationships, as well as their depth and length. With the release of the Breitbart video, we have Obama personally advancing a radical and his teachings, and a verifiable, long-term connection.
While the Breitbart video did shed light on Obama’s history of fomenting racial tension, it is even more evidently a confirmation of the president’s long-established radical roots. These certainly relate to where America is right now and portend an ongoing impact on Americans and what Obama’s re-election would truly represent.
According to his own narrative, Barack Obama was bred by communists, raised by communists, mentored by communists and was employed by communists. By his admission, he sought out communists as preferred parties with whom to fraternize. Obama’s radical Marxism is at the very core of why he does what he does, why he will continue to do so and why America remains in dire peril with every day he occupies the White House.
What's both funny and appalling about this sort of nonsense is the complete ignorance of political theory it displays. "Marxism" and "communism" are economic and historical theories with a precise meanings: they are not a synonym for "Everything The Tea Party Thinks Is Yucky But Doesn't Quite Understand".
I'm not complaining: this kind of drivel is a like a warning flag reading "Don't Take Me Seriously". But it is unfortunate that so many American pundits have abandoned real political analysis and retreated to the playground.
We have no voice in the classroom where the nomenclature of fascism, radical Marxism, and communism is defined by participant particularists. So we settle it on the playground. I've noticed you've been skipping recess.
