John Drew was a member leader of the Marxist students at Occidental College, starting in 1976 when he founded the precursor of the Democrat Socialist Alliance on campus. He knew Barack Obama at the time as a committed Marxist socialist.
The Obama I knew was nothing like the lifelong pragmatic centrist that he was pretending to be in the 2008 presidential campaign. When I talked politics with the young Obama, he expressed a profound commitment to bringing about a socialist economic system in the U.S. — completely divorced from the profit motive — which would occur, in his lifetime, through a potentially violent, Communist-style revolution.
Mr. Drew has written a great article about how all of the news and opinion sources we normally depend on to alert us to this kind of thing, refused completely to act upon the information he provided them with about Obama’s lifelong commitment to Communism. (example Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, the folks behind the Swiftboat ads, and the McCain campaign.)
We’re on our own folks. Read John Drew’s article here. It’s right on the damn button.
