Photo Discovered Of Obama With Fellow Chicago Socialist Party Members
–This post was bumped–
Great… We’re two shakes of a lamb’s tail from having a former(?) Marxist as president.
A photo just surfaced from 1996 featuring a group of New Party Socialist candidates posing together after impressive election wins in Chicago.
Bloggers New Zeal and The Big Feed discovered this photo of Barack Obama and other New Party socialists including Danny K Davis (center), from the front page of New Party News, Spring 1996:

Power Line reported that Obama is even quoted in this socialist newsletter.
Obama actively sought the New Party’s endorsement and urged the Marxist members to join his campaigns. The New Party went so far as to claim Obama as an official member of their organisation. The New Party socialists were affiliated with the Democratic Socialists of America.
Of course, Obama has a long history of relationships with Marxists.
His first mentor in high school was noted Communist Frank Marshall Davis.
He admitted he attended socialist conferences during his college years in his first book, “Dreams From My Father”, page 122:
“Political discussions, the kind that at Occidental had once seemed so intense and purposeful, came to take on the flavor of the socialist conferences that I sometimes attended at Cooper Union or the African cultural fairs that took place in Harlem or Brooklyn during the summers-a few of the many diversions that New York had to offer, like going to a foreign film or ice-skating at the Rockefeller Center.”
Obama also wrote that he selected his friends carefully, the more Marxist and radical the better, page 100:
“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist Professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.”
And, don’t forget Obama’s pastor, mentor and father figure of 20 years, G-D AmeriKKKa Jeremiah Wright, who brought the black liberation socialist theology to the alter.
