Barack Obama’s use of the word “Forward” as the slogan for his 2012 campaign puts him in the company of Vladimir Lenin, Mao Tse-tung, and the Hitler Youth. Lenin named his newspaper “Forward,” Mao slaughtered 40 million people under the Great Leap Forward banner, and the Hitler Youth adopted the tune “Forward, Forward” in their marches.
But don’t second-guess Obama and his minions, for they know exactly what they’re doing. They want Americans looking forward, rather than back at the administration’s failed policies and poor economic record. And don’t think for a minute that they don’t know what the word means to fellow travelers. Their base demands red meat, so they must gamble on the media wooing enough Americans willing to suspend disbelief for an unrealistic, utterly fanciful vision for America.
“I am somebody who is no doubt progressive. I believe in a tax code that we need to make more fair. I believe in universal health care. I believe in making college affordable. I believe in paying our teachers more money. I believe in early childhood education. I believe in a whole lot of things that make me progressive.”—Barack Obama
The Nazi movement developed from the progressive socialist ideas of the pre-World War I era, which were praised and propagandized by many intellectuals in the United States.
“[F]ascism, properly understood, is not a phenomenon of the right at all. Instead, it is, and always has been, a phenomenon of the left.”—Jonah Goldberg, Liberal Fascism
If Obama is reelected and he replaces the retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy with another stooge to form a trio with Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, I shudder to think on the tattered remains of the U.S. Constitution.
