Reds Who Support Obama

Well, it looks like the Obama campaign is steamrolling ahead, with the whole Reverend Wright affair just a minor bump in the road, as far as Democrats are concerned.

So this is as good a time as any to present my companion piece to Radicals, Terrorists, and Tyrants of the World Root for Obama. This time, I thought we’d take a look at all of the known communists/Socialists/Marxists who have supported, endorsed, or influenced Obama. Some communists can be found on the Radicals, Terrorists, and Tyrants list, as well, because let’s face it, radicals and tyrants tend to be commies, (Fidel Castro for instance), but in the interest of keeping this post down to a manageable size, I’m going to try to avoid duplications.

What some might call, “guilt by association” I call Obama’s ‘calling card’.

So without further ado, Obama’s Litany of Shame part deux (not in any certain order):

Frank Marshall Davis:

The “Frank”, Obama mentions in Dreams From My Father; Obama’s Communist mentor.

Accuracy In Media:

The Senate Internal Security Subcommittee (SISS) reprinted the 1953 and 1954 Reports of the Commission on Subversive Activities of the Territory of Hawaii, which refer to Davis as “an identified member of the Communist Party” who was affiliated with a number of Communist fronts and circulated “inflammatory racial propaganda.” Davis also wrote columns for the Honolulu Record, a Communist paper, featuring “unrelenting and unmitigated complaints of racial discrimination in the United States.” Davis was labeled “a bitter opponent of capitalism” and “staunch defender” of communists and communist sympathizers.

Here’s a charming example of his poetry:

“Remember this, you wise guys
Your tales about Jesus of Nazareth are no-go with me
I’ve got a dozen Christs in Dixie all bloody and black…”

His ode to the “Red Army” contains this line:

“Smash on, victory-eating Red Army,”

This is the guy who spent many hours advising and reading poetry to a young Barack Obama.

Added June 3, 2008:

Read this excellent FrontPageMagazine piece, Obama’s Communist “Poet” Friend.

Sam Graham-Felsen

Obama’s official blogger, and contributor to The Socialist Viewpoint.

The American Thinker had this to say about Graham-Felsen:

Sam Graham-Felsen, hired to run Obama’s blog, writes about Noam Chomsky in a Marxist publication that openly calls for revolution against the American government. This is a Presidential candidate’s choice to run the on-line portion of his campaign. That speaks volumes of his character and worldview. Contradicting what he says in public, Obama is surrounding himself with poeple who never seem to learn that their absurd ideologies end in misery and ruin.

Tim Wheeler:

Wheeler is a member of the CPUSA National Board and has been a mainstay of the party’s Baltimore Club since the early ’70s.

From 1991 to 2003 Tim Wheeler served as editor of the party paper People’s Weekly World. Currently he is the PWW’s national political correspondent.

He’s also an active member of Obama’s campaign in Baltimore, MD. Here’s his Obama ’08 website.

The blog, New Zeal reports:

He is on the campaign trail with Senator Obama, blogging as he goes.

Wheeler canvassed for his idol in the recent South Carolina primary.

Tim Wheeler was in Obama’s campaign HQ as the primary results came in;

The Obama people are over the moon. I was at a precinct some four or five miles outside of Columbia, mainly a rural area. And it was a steady stream of voters all day. Overwhelmingly African American voters. There was a feeling of victory in the air.

I’m at the Obama headquarters and you can hear the cheering all over. It’s really very exciting.

Here he is swooning over Obama’s ‘more perfect union’ speech in People’s Weekly World.

His Dad

Presto Pundit on Dreams From My Father:

Barack Obama organized his life on the ideals given to him by his Kenyan father. Obama tells us, “All of my life, I carried a single image of my father, one that I .. tried to take as my own.” (p. 220) And what was that image? It was “the father of my dreams, the man in my mother’s stories, full of high-blown ideals ..” (p. 278) What is more, Obama tells us that, “It was into my father’s image .. that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself.” And also that, “I did feel that there was something to prove .. to my father” in his efforts at political organizing. (p. 230)

So what are those ideals, given to the young Obama by his Communist father?

PrestoPundit has found a 1965 paper written by Obama’s father, in which he advocates:

100% taxation

— communal farms / the elimination of private farming

— the nationalization of businesses owned by “Europeans” and “Asians”.

— “active” measures to bring about a classless society

Socialists For Obama

This blog is for those interested in learning how can we change this country from the current capitalist unfair system, into a real socialist, democratic system for all. This capitalist system of Bush and his cronies only benefit the upper classes. USA needs a 21st Century Socialist, Democratic and Participative system for the workers and people of this country, without fascism, without wars, but with peace, equality, socialism and love.

Marxists, Socialists, Communists For Obama

Their Obama ’08 page is still up:

Democratic Socialists of America

Obama has been associated with this group since his days as a Chicago “community organizer”. In 1996 he received the endorsement of the Chicago branch of the DSA for his IL state senate seat.

Communist Party USA:

Barack Obama’s campaign has so far generated the most excitement, attracted the most votes, most volunteers and the most money. We think the basic reason for this is that his campaign has the clearest message of unity and progressive change, while having a real possibility for victory in November.

Bernie Sanders:

Here’s Obama campaigning for openly Socialist, Bernie Sanders in 2006:

Accuracy in Media:

Interestingly, Sanders, who won his seat in 2006, called Obama “one of the great leaders of the United States Senate,” even though Obama had only been in the body for about two years. In 2007, the National Journal said that Obama had established himself as “the most liberal Senator.” More liberal than Sanders? That is quite a feat. Does this make Obama a socialist, too?

Yes grasshopper, I believe it does.

Reverend Wright (before he was thrown under the bus):

A firm practitioner of the Marxist Black Liberation Theology:

REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: Reverend Wright is absolutely committed to what he calls “black liberation theology.” Well, “liberation theology” has its roots in Latin American liberation theology.

And if you ask the average Christian leader in this country, it is way, way outside the mainstream of Christian belief, and, in fact, it’s based in Marxism. At the core of his theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That’s very, very dangerous.

Michelle Obama:

She wants your pie.

Some more commies for Obama listed in my Radicals, Terrorists, and Tyrants post:

William Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn

Fidel Castro

Daniel Ortega

Progressives For Obama



See Dubya says to add:

Hugo Chavez:

Bill Richardson who visited Venezuela last week, in essence delivered Hugo’s endorsement, according to Ed Morrissey.

I also had him on my list of radicals, tyrants, and terrorists supporting Obama, but….on pretty weak grounds, frankly. But I just knew he preferred Obama. I knew it!

No big surprise, there.

Hi Michelle Malkin Readers! I hope I get the Malkin award for this!


I forgot to mention Saul Alinsky, the radical Marxist whose teachings so influenced Obama:

(Community organizer) Galluzzo shared with me the manual he uses to train new organizers, which is little different from the version he used to train Obama in the ’80s. It is filled with workshops and chapter headings on understanding power: “power analysis,” “elements of a power organization,” “the path to power.” Galluzzo told me that many new trainees have an aversion to Alinsky’s gritty approach because they come to organizing as idealists rather than realists. But Galluzzo’s manual instructs them to get over these hang-ups. “We are not virtuous by not wanting power,” it says. “We are really cowards for not wanting power,” because “power is good” and “powerlessness is evil.”

The other fundamental lesson Obama was taught is Alinsky’s maxim that self-interest is the only principle around which to organize people. (Galluzzo’s manual goes so far as to advise trainees in block letters: “get rid of do-gooders in your church and your organization.”) Obama was a fan of Alinsky’s realistic streak. “The key to creating successful organizations was making sure people’s self-interest was met,” he told me, “and not just basing it on pie-in-the-sky idealism. So there were some basic principles that remained powerful then, and in fact I still believe in.”

Baldilocks and DianeJ say I need to add Raila Amolo Odinga:

He has a son named Fidel Castro, which is enough for me. Also:


According his website, Raila lists himself as a social democrat,[19] thus distancing himself from his late father, who was openly socialist. His party, the LDP, is affiliated to the Liberal International.

The Conservative Voice:

“–Also, Raila Odinga was educated in communist E. Germany, and his father Oginga Odinga led the communist opposition during the Cold War.

“–Raila Odinga’s official presidential website is similar to Barack Obama’s, and Odinga’s main campaign message and slogan is: CHANGE. Vote for Change. Agent of Change. Look at his website:

Welcome Ace of Spades morons!, as well as (more respectable) DoublePlusUndead, Moonbattery, My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, Baldilocks, DianeJ’s Weblog, and Chris Baker readers!

UPDATE (June 2):

The New Party:

The New Party is an unabashed Marxist “fusion” party from which Barack Obama actively sought out and received an endorsement for his state senate candidacy (in 1996).

Added October 20: Obama was actually a member of this far left/Socialist party, the electoral arm of ACORN.

UPDATE (June 5):

George Galloway

Discover the Networks says:

British Member of Parliament George Galloway ranks among the most impassioned advocates of the de facto alliance that has been forged between Western leftists and radical Islamists, unlikely allies who have joined their efforts to oppose America’s defensive War on Terror and its war of liberation in Iraq. This alliance is founded upon the leftists’ and the Islamists’ shared hatred for America.

You can see him at Michelle Malkin endorsing Hezbollah.

Then at LGF endorsing (who else?) Obama.

It was only a matter of time.

UPDATE (June 25):

Mike Klonsky

Here’s what Gateway Pundit found on the guy:

Klonsky belonged to the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and was best friends with friends William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn who later became famous for their acts of terrorism.
Today he posts a blog on the Obama website.

Screenshpt at Gateway Pundit’s. Website, here.

Between 1979 and 1981, Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) (CPML) chairman and Obama supporter Mike Klonsky was repeatedly feted with state-dinner-level visits to Beijing.

UPDATE (June 26):

Well that didn’t take long. Obama has already effectively thrown Klonsky under the bus.

For a working list of undesirables Klonsky has joined there, as well as those still clinging to the bumper, see Confederate Yankee. This list is certain to grow.

Carl Davidson:

He didn’t bomb the Capitol or rob banks like his contemporaries in the Weather Underground.

But Carl Davidson, a former vice president of the Students for a Democratic Society who traveled to Cuba to meet with Fidel Castro and still praises the dictator today, is another proud radical for Barack Obama, serving faithfully as webmaster for “Progressives for Obama.”

Discover the Networks on The SDS:

Forming the core of the 1960s counter-cultural movement known collectively as the New Left, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) was a radical organization that aspired to overthrow America’s democratic institutions, remake its government in a Marxist image, and help America’s enemies defeat her sons on the battlefield in Vietnam. The group developed from the Student League for Industrial Democracy, the youth branch of the socialist League for Industrial Democracy.

UPDATE: (July 28):

Joelle Fishman

AIM reports Fishman is:

…the chairman of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) Political Action Commission. In a column titled, “Big political shifts are underway,” Fishman says that Obama could lead “a landslide defeat of the Republican ultra-right” this November and that he is “ready to listen” to the “left and progressive voters” backing him. Fishman makes it clear that the CPUSA is part of this coalition.


Investor’s Business Daily has a bunch more commies for Obamie, in Finding Friends On The Far, Far Left.

Well no wonder he does not want the Florida primaries voted into the mix – he would definitely lose the Cuban vote being associated with someone who is a Communist, has a child named after Fidel Castro and this many commie supporters. Cubans carry the state of Florida and have high influence in the Florida legislature they voted for Hillary as she did carry this state. What the hell is America thinking?

  15. Nice Deb … you are GREAT !!! What a website and one of the few you can find telling it like it is. I hope you and your readers let me speak and have my say. It absolutely amases me how bias the media has been with Hussain. I watched part of an MSNBC broadcast yesterday about the elections and the commentator had 4 “expert” panelists on and all 5 … I say all 5 were pro Hussain. Then MSNBC followed with another program that was all Hussain. I would say 90% of the links to “You Tube” that are detrimental to Hussain has miraculously disappeared. How convenient !!! I guess we know now where they stand as well as Yahoo. OMG … their on-line news is all pro Hussain and bashes Hillary and John. Cuddos to Jane from Florida. I also am a Floridian and I am absolutely appauled at how the DNC and Hussain is regarding my state. It makes me think of last weeks election in West Virginia and how Hussain and the DNC blew them and their primary off and is going to do the same today with Kentucky. But wait !!! Oregon is pro Hussain so they will get all the attention since it is a pro Hussain win. SO … Hussain and the DNC wants us Flrodians to forgive them for telling us we don’t count and they don’t care about us. YES to all of you who will say that we brought this on ourself. But tell me … why has Florida been such an important state (which the DNC and Hussain is now telling everyone) for so many elections but when they went to allow certain states to go early this year we got snubbed. Come on … IOWA !!! give me a break (go ahead Iowa take your sorry little shots back). It’s a caucus state and caucus’s are a joke … just like the electoral college. All states should hold general elections and let the process be level. Elections should be by popular vote. That way ALL states count and nobody would have a winner until all the people in all the states vote and count. SO … Hussain and the DNC want to court us Floridians and bring us into their den and do so BEFORE they even have their meeting at the end of May to determine how they are going to deal with our vote. That takes some balls, is a direct slap in Floridians face and my reply to them is get the hell out of my state. They have already lost this states vote. Oh … go ahead and let us count after it’s too late. If we had our say counted when it should have been then this entire process could be different. Let’s get into “off limits” … what a joke. Only if it benefits Hussain is it OK to say. Give me a break !!! You’re a politician and your free game. If you didn’t think you were going to be exposed then you shouldn’t have gotten into office … period. And the race card issue … go ahead and call me what you want … I really don’t give a damn. According to Hussain I am an old typical white person who had to grasp my gun and religion… Now if that isn’t a racist statement then calling a black … isn’t either. I must have forgotten It’s OK to call a white man or woman honkey and other derogatory words but if white people stray from a black persons thought then we’re racist. Personally, I believe Hussain has … as others have stated … moved any progress we have made with race backwards. So take your off limits and racist deversions and shove it where the sun won’t shine. Hussain is nothing more than a typical politician. A great speaker with no substance. I have yet to hear any details of how he plans to “change” America unless it’s to turn us over to the commies and radical terrorists. Now how many times in my “old” history have I heard politicians talk of “Change” … a “New Hope” and blah blah blah. So what makes this masiah think he is going to be any different. Poor Hussain … raised by a poor white women and his life was like the middle struggling class (to which I am one of). OK … I guess he won the lottery and got all the money he needed to attend some of the most expensive universities in this country. I guess Hussain changed religions so he could run for ofiice and so on. I’m sorry but I’m going “off limits” here –> Mrs. Hussain … she’s a good one. I’m finally proud of my country … if you didn’t like it before nobody was keeping you from hopping on a plane and leaving. Oh … it’s so hard to put my children through “Private” schools and their various practices and so on, on a $300,000 year salary. On that kind of money I could do a lot of things. So if Hussain was one of us “middle class” working folks why didn’t he put his children into public schools like the rest of us. Our schools not good enough for an elitist hypocritical rich politician … hmmmmmmm. Doesn’t sound too middle class to me. Now let’s not forget Mrs. Hussains comments about women being in creative … professional positions. All of you need to quit those important jobs that help others so do it today !!! Follow Hussain … follow … or be a racist .. a non-conformist. Tsk Tsk … women in important positions making advancements for mankind. Lord help us all !!! But it will be OK for Mrs. Hussain to be “First Lady”. NO NO … you will need to be a school teacher and relinquish first lady to someone else. Practice what you preach dear lady. Or is that “sweetie” … hmmmmm … can’t remember. Bottom line … Hussain is a lying sleezeball and I would no more trust him that I would Iran. So you all go ahead and follow the masiah. When Jimmy Carter junior has this country in the position it was in when he left office … for you young and gullable children who think Hussain is better than peanut butter and jelly (wasn’t Jimmy boy in the peanut business) and for anyone who forgot the “IRAN” hostage cricis … I can proudly say I was not bullshited by Hussains carisma for words and didn’t vote for him. With how the DNC has treated us Floridians I wouldn’t vote for him anyway. Hussain … go ahead and speak directly to Iran and other terrorist backing countries who don’t have any more value for life than I do watching a turd go down the toilet. Bor do I hold any respect or turst in Hussain, the DNC, the newspapers and news TV. Why is Hussain so good at speaking when he has teleprompters but when he doesn’t it’s ahhhh …. hmmmmm …. I don’t know. How can someone who never served in the armed forces and knows nothing about the armed forces (I served 4 years during Vietnam) say he is capable of the task. What a joke. And no your not a JFK or Regan … your a JIMMY CARTER in different skin. Off limits … racist … what a joke !!! Hussain … come back when you have grown up and not wet behind the ears and have actually gained some experience in politics. We need someone who knows what is happening not only at home but in the world. This is not the time for us to be led by a “slow learner” as your own campaign has said about you. Go back to Chicago and get a life. And Mrs. Hussain … as you told the other women of America … quit your $300K a year job and work the streets and put your children through public schools (if you want us middle class to think you may be one too). You’re nothing more than an elitist bitch. Hussain and his “sweetie” are lying hypocritical slime. I was a Hillary backer but I’m going to vote for John McCain because of the DNC and Hussain. I am an independant but have leaned towards the democratic sice but they have turned me off and they can kiss off as well. Thank you for allowing me to speak.


  16. WOW, OldWhiteGuy! That was quite a rant.

    I hope you feel better, and welcome to the dark side.

    Just keeding…Seriously, I’m glad you’re not voting for either of the Marxists.

Allowing hate to be used is bad politics with all of the assasinated presidents and leaders this country has lost ,and they need to be ashamed. It is dirty dangerous politics and needs to be stopped immediately. John and Robert Kennedy,Abe Lincoln,the attempt on Ronald Reagen and Dr. King are just a few of the victims of terroism in this country ,and the Republican party owes these families an apology .They owe Barack Obama and his family and party an apology as well. They owe this nation an apology
