Mike Klonsky is no stranger to the rightwing blogosphere, but I dare say he is to most American voters. Andrew McCarthy is doing his best to sound the alarm, making the the important point in his article, that these radical associations of Obama’s, not only tell us about his judgment, and dishonesty. It tells us about Barack Obama’s own ideology. That is the thing that should scare people:
Here’s what you need to know. Klonsky is an unabashed communist whose current mission is to spread Marxist ideology in the American classroom. Obama funded him to the tune of nearly $2 million. Obama, moreover, gave Klonsky a broad platform to broadcast his ideas: a “social justice” blog on the official Obama campaign website.
To be clear, as it seems always necessary to repeat when Obamaniacs, in their best Saul Alinsky tradition, shout down the opposition: This is not about guilt by association. The issue is not that Obama knowsKlonsky … or Ayers … or Dohrn … or Wright … or Rashid Khalidi …
The issue is that Obama promoted and collaborated with these anti-American radicals. The issue is that he shared their ideology.
Of course, it is now being characterized as “red baiting”, or McCarthyesque, (and probably racist, too) to bring up Obama’s problematic radical associations.
Of course that’s designed to stifle critics, and discourage the curious from looking further into it.
People shouldn’t fall for it.
The secret is out – ACORN is not actually a “non-partisan” organization.
I know, I know, you could knock me over with a feather:
I’ve been sayng this for years. I’m actually beyond disgusted with Republicans for not doing anything about ACORN back when they had a majority in Congress. All of this could have been avoided.
Are they that afraid of being called racist?
