We have been speculating for awhile that Barack Obama has socialistic leanings, he will take the country in a socialist direction, etc. Of course conservative bloggers have been viewed by some (especially the liberal media) as a bunch of paranoid nut cases. Funny thing about paranoids is that sometimes they really do have someone out to get them. This may be the case with the bloggers and the Obama socialist story.
World Net Daily is reporting today that Obama was a member of the now defunct New Party. As evidence they have a newsletter, The New Party News, in which Obama is pictured with members, listed as a member, and has quotes from Obama. This article is definitely worth reading. Among some of the excerpts are:
The New Party, formed by members of the Democratic Socialists for America and leaders of an offshoot of the Community Party USA, was an electoral alliance that worked alongside the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN. The New Party's aim was to help elect politicians to office who espouse its policies.
Note the association with ACORN, somebody’s been lying about their limited interaction with them.
New Ground, the newsletter of Chicago's Democratic Socialists for America, reported in its July/August 1996 edition that Obama attended a New Party membership meeting April 11, 1996, in which he expressed his gratitude for the group's support and "encouraged NPers (New Party members) to join in his task forces on Voter Education and Voter Registration."
Becoming a New Party member requires some effort on behalf of the politician. Candidates must be approved by the party's political committee and, once approved, must sign a contract mandating they will have a "visible and active relationship" with the party.
The Obama campaign has denied that he ever belonged.
Now the next trick is getting this info out. As of this writing, only Fox was carrying the story. A survey of MSNBC, CBS, and ABC shows they are not yet though I have no doubt they will, just as soon as they’ve run that Sarah Palin clothes story long enough.
We need to do our part, spread the word. We need to keep this now certain socialist out of office.
