Barack Obama served as the US President for two terms. When he was first elected, his anti-war rhetoric, racial background and Muslim ancestral roots had won him great support with the anti-war league and religious people. With his term over, however, it became clear that he failed to keep his promises such as withdrawing US soldiers from the Middle East, or shutting down the Guantanamo facility. Indeed, the US Air Force is still present in the Middle East. What is particularly noteworthy is the socialist-communist tendencies of Obama, which only recently became clear.
When Obama won a seat in the Senate, the Communist Party USA made an official statement and said: ‘This was a historic victory. It was a victory for political independence’. When Obama’s presidency was declared, the said party wrote on its website: ‘Our Party actively supported Obama during the primary election.‘ Indeed, the Communist Party USA leader John Bachtell admitted in 2015 their support in all states for Obama’s first presidential bid.
When Obama won the Iowa caucuses in 2004, the newspaper of the Communist Party USA celebrated with the following words:
Obama’s victory was more than a progressive move; it was a dialectical leap ushering in a qualitatively new era of struggle. Marx once compared revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface. This is the old revolutionary ‘mole,’ not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through. (SOURCE)
Obama explained during the interview he gave to David Mendel that when he was younger he used to attend communist conferences and sympathized with them. It is also noteworthy that the main supporters of Obama in his presidential bid were usually people with communist and Marxists backgrounds. For instance, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who started and managed the campaign for Obama’s Senate race, were the two most radical Marxists of the Vietnam war. Alice Palmer, a politician who introduced Obama to politics and who is also known as his mentor, is the first African-American journalist that was allowed to enter the Soviet Union and attend the 27th Communist Congress. Families of Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod, the two closest aides of Obama, are famous communists. Obama’s church is known as the church that follows the neo-Marxist Libertarian theology. Addie Wyatt, one of the pastors of the church, who is also one of the mentors of Obama, is a member of the Communist Party USA.
The economic program implemented by Obama is considered a Marxist-Leninist program.
