While running for office, Barack Hussein Obama proclaimed that “when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” Since taking power he has nationalized or quasi-nationalized every industry whose neck he could get his hands around. Yet glassy-eyed liberals continue to deny that he is a socialist. Maybe this will lay the argument to rest:
On the evening of January 11, 1996, while Mitt Romney was in the final years of his run as the head of Bain Capital, Barack Obama formally joined the New Party, which was deeply hostile to the mainstream of the Democratic party and even to American capitalism. In 2008, candidate Obama deceived the American public about his potentially damaging tie to this third party.
Past accusations that the Manchurian Moonbat was a member of the radical New Party have been met with strident denials from the Obama campaign and zero interest from the Obamunist “mainstream” media. However,
Recently obtained evidence from the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society now definitively establishes that Obama was a member of the New Party. He also signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and associate himself with the New Party while in office.
Minutes of the meeting on January 11, 1996, of the New Party’s Chicago chapter read as follows:
Barack Obama, candidate for State Senate in the 13th Legislative District, gave a statement to the membership and answered questions. He signed the New Party “Candidate Contract” and requested an endorsement from the New Party. He also joined the New Party.
Consistent with this, a roster of the Chicago chapter of the New Party from early 1997 lists Obama as a member, with January 11, 1996, indicated as the date he joined.
Obama’s membership in the alarmingly extreme New Party may help explain why he has been willing to lie to obscure the closeness of his ties to ACORN; the New Party was ACORN’s political arm.
Here’s what the New Party was about:
The documents reveal that the New Party’s central aim was to move the United States steadily closer to European social democracy, a goal that Mitt Romney has also attributed to Obama. New Party leaders disdained mainstream Democrats, considering them tools of business, and promised instead to create a partnership between elected officials and local community organizations, with the goal of socializing the American economy to an unprecedented degree.
The party’s official “statement of principles,” which candidates seeking endorsement from the Chicago chapter were asked to support, called for a “peaceful revolution” and included redistributive proposals substantially to the left of the Democratic party.
To get a sense of the ideology at play, consider that the meeting at which Obama joined the party opened with the announcement of a forthcoming event featuring the prominent socialist activist Frances Fox Piven.
Yes, that Frances Fox Piven, coauthor of the Cloward-Piven strategy, which calls for collapsing the economy through massive government spending, so that communism can be constructed in the ruins. Uncoincidentally, Obama has already increased the national debt by more than all presidents from George Washington through George H.W. Bush combined; we have nothing to show for the spending.
For “journalists” to continue masking Obama’s background is an act of treason.
