Surprise!… Obama Was Affiliated With National Socialist Party Throughout Most of the 1990's! …Update: Proof
Barack Obama was an active participant in the 1990s, and a direct political beneficiary, of the Chicago New Party and, importantly, the Chicago DSA, a group of socialists affiliated with the Democratic Socialists of America.
The connections are extensively documented by Matthew Weaver.
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.
Politically Drunk on Power has more on Obama’s socialist recent past.
UPDATE: Thomas Lifson at American Thinker describes Obama as a man groomed by an older generation of radical leftists for insertion into the American political process.
UPDATE 2: Obama signed up with the Marxists in 1995.
UPDATE 3: Here is proof– a screen grab from the Marxist web page promoting candidate Barack Obama in 1996:
