New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism

Obama’s new campaign slogan, “Forward”, couldn’t be more perfect:

Washington Times – Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name “Forward!” or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called “Forward (generic name of socialist publications).”

“The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications,” the online encyclopedia explains.

The slogan “Forward!” reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

The Obama campaign released its new campaign slogan Monday in a 7-minute video. The title card has simply the word “Forward” with the “O” having the familiar Obama logo from 2008. It will be played at rallies this weekend that mark the Obama re-election campaign’s official beginning.

    Perhaps the slogan should be downward rather than forward, because that is the direction America is plunging.

    • Rmoney gives obama his best chance at 2nd term. And if somehow romney manages to pull a win, NOW the socialists will be in charge of both the GOP and democratic party! Ronald Reagan Ambassador and conservative leader Alan Keyes makes a great point about the vital need to stop socialism with the following Strategy!

        I can’t stand willard, but I can’t stand him less than 0b0.

        I wanted to throw it in reverse and shove the foot to the floor, cut the wheels, do a 180, shove it into drive and floor it again, but if I have too I will settle for taking a little downward pressure off the gas as we head toward the cliff.

      • las1

        I agree with Keyes, but he has yet to outline a strategy in that article. So I will be watching. I can see no other strategy against the Obama Revolution and the GOP fakery than a real Counter Revolution. It’s that serious… but look forward to what Keye’s says.

      • Galatiansch2vs20

        Started to read, but it was so negative and depressing, quit. I know Romney is not who I voted for. If he picks a true conservative for a running mate, unlike himself, I would vote Romney/true conservative against Obama.

  • marketcomp

    Move forward wiht more Maxist strategies and plans. Here’s a slogan for ya. If reelected we are all, “F***ed!”

    • denbren52

      Same number of letters, both begin with “F” and end with “d”. Maybe he’s trying to tell us something.

  • but of course it is… and naturally MSNBCommie was praising it.

  • Sandra123456

    Oh, so that’s what’s MSNBC’s “Lean Forward” slogan means. Lean Communist. Fits.

  • Nukeman60

    Whatever happened to WTF? Did Palin finally get through to them and make them smart enough to drop it. Perhaps, she can take away this stupid slogan too. ‘Bend over and lean Forward‘, You betcha.

    • Joe

      “Bend over and lean Forward” – LOL! (not really funny)

      Actually I heard THAT is the full version –

      The only reason I lean forward is for a shooter’s stance

      • NYGino

        “Bend over and lean forward” speaking of this, why isn’t a proctologist called an astronaut?

        • las1

          Ok… I give up… why?

  • Joe

    It actually be “Backward” being on Bizarro World and all

    That’s the real direction we are going in if he gets in again

    • denbren52

      One step forward = two steps back.

  • joyfulgiver

    perhaps the slogan should be “Bend Over” since the “Forward” direction we are being taken in is going to cause us all to bow down to a “king” some day. Didn’t we fight a war once to give up our allegiance to a king. Rise up!

  • KenInMontana

    From where he has taken us, almost anywhere else could be seen as forward.

    • freenca

      Agreed, Ken. The red agenda is as bad as it gets for Americans

      • KenInMontana

        “BOHICA” comes to mind.

        • I think GLAD already uses a variation of that one.

          • KenInMontana

            They stole it.

            • Rshill7

              From Mussolini’s socialist magazine entitled “Avanti”, aka “L’Avanti”.
              He was it’s editor.

              • KenInMontana

                I was talking about GLAD stealing “BOHICA”. (Bend Over Here It Comes Again)

  • I think this is more like bend over and grab the ankles as Rush would say.

  • kclightguy

    Make no mistake about it-the choice of the slogan “Forward” by the big O and his team was no oversight. This is the first American Socialist President and he no longer feels he has anything to lose by hiding it.

    • Terrenceor

      This is the culmination of 100 years of effort by the left and they think they have enough of the young people behind them to make it happen. They also think they have their Wendell Wilkie to run against. Is their arrogance justified?

    • toongoon

      The Communists are emboldened now. Lets watch it blow up in their faces.

    • He has everything to gain so long as the media continue to provide cover, and they have been in on it. A couple weeks ago there were some tougher stories on Obama, and it felt like they were trying to buy credibility (build up semi-political capital)….now we see why.

      I’ve been saying forever that they’re trying to incite the right to get back into protest tea party mode, and we’d better not fall into that trap. Obama wants to run against that, since as a protest movement, it has already been shunned by the media and moderates/independents which decide elections. They are already tagged as extremists, so any animus towards the POTUS by that movement will coalesce pop culture America around him.

      Don’t take the bait.

  • Mechan8

    F.O R.W.A.R.D.

    Funky Obama reguirgiates words and relishes deception….Ya, that’s about right, that’s him!

  • Kind’ve makes me wonder about MSDNC’s slogan, “Lean Forward”.

    Anyhow, I’ve got a better one for Obama:

    “From each, according to their ability; to each, according to their need.”

  • toongoon

    You mean…’s not because he’s black?

    Anyone who still believes that the color of his skin is what people hold against him are just flat out lying now. It isn’t ignorance anymore.

    • KenInMontana

      You’re right it’s Willful ignorance. 😉

      • freenca

        Just wait til his peeps find out about it ! 😉

        • KenInMontana

          Hmm, might be worth a trip down to the local thrift store to pick up a bag of shoes.

          They’re great for taking waulering cats off of fences😉

  • denbren52

    Finally. Truth in political advertising. Now he’s putting his Communism right out front so everyone can see it.

    • LiveFreeOrDie2012

      Remember 2008? Google “Change” and “socialism”.

  • Watchman74

    Anyone surprised? And I’m still amazed when people ask why we are anti-Obama.

    • FreeManWalking

      Likewise I am more amazed that people can’t see, or Don’t care what he is doing to the nation.

      I am amazed his favorable opinion polls are as high as they are.

      What do they hear that we don’t hear, because they @#$%# sure don’t see what we see, what he is is really doing to this nation.

      • kong1967

        They see a welfare check every month.

  • Rmoney gives obama his best chance at 2nd term. And if somehow romney manages to pull a win, NOW the socialists will be in charge of both the GOP and democratic party!

  • FreeManWalking

    I was enlighten to his ties to Marxism, socialism, terrorist Bill Ayers, and radical Alinsky tactics long before his new “Forward” slogan.

    And the enlightenment didn’t come from his WH press sectaries Brine Williams, Chrisp Mathews, PKC, et al.

  • LiveFreeOrDie2012

    What are the odds? First, his 2008 slogan of “Change” has ties to socialism. Now, his 2012 slogan of “Forward” has ties to socialism and marxism. Will he get away with it again?

  • basmith77

    Maybe “forward right over the cliff”. Anyone who can’t see this government pushing this country into communism hasn’t been connecting the dots.

    • kong1967

      A large percentage of the Democrat base are welfare voters who believe that communism is good. I saw Occupy Wallstreet morons saying that N. Korea takes really good care of it’s citizens. We do not face a rational enemy (Democrats).

  • kong1967

    Well, he’s already asking why we would want to go back to something that doesn’t work…..capitalism. He is the WORST President in American history, and liberals are going to put him in the history books as the best. Idiots.

  • Dan

    way to go Commie in Chief……

  • I wonder what other communist party songs they will be playing at the rallies? All they need are the red banners and they’ll be all set. You could make a lot of funny commercials about all of this, all of them showing Obama as Lenin. The Republicans need to keep pushing this angle that Obama is a socialist, giving people a very clear choice about which way they want this country to go in 2012. Sharp voters already know this, but for the rest of the country that doesn’t pay much attention to politics, this could help a lot.

  • Kaitlyn Marshbanks

    Brilliant President Obama worked hard and graduated MAGNA CUM LAUDE from Harvard Law School WHILE at the same TIME having WORKED many hours a week as PRESIDENT of the prestigious Harvard Law Review! President Obama wrote wonderful, poignant bestselling books and became a SELF-made Multi-MILLIONAIRE CAPITALIST! President Obama is an INFINITELY better representative of our beloved country as a Democracy — as an individualist MERITOCRACY — than Bush, McCain, or Romney could EVER be!

    • NYGino

      I have this bridge you might be interested in.

    • KenInMontana

      It’s a Republic, oh useless one.

  • Forward is Barackward

  • Sober_Thinking

    And of course, he denies being a Socialist. He’s is completely incapable of lying.

    And the dumbmasses will march lockstep to the voting booths to re-elect this fool.

  • Susitna

    Hello there! Sorry if I repeat myself but this an important information:

    Not only the new slogan from Obama has a long socialist past, but the old one as well: “yes we can” – ” si se puede”.
    Alan Garcia, former President from Peru during two administrations, used this slogan in 1985. He is a member of the APRA Party which belongs to the International Socialist Organization. Alan Garcia also asked the population back then to vote for “change”. Yes, the story repeats again and again……..

  • Nitnyline

    Watch ‘Judgement at Nuremberg’ where Burt Lancaster takes the stand to explain how things went in Germany during the 30’s and the rise of the Nazi Party. He uses the slogan, “We will march out of the shadows, forward! Forward, it is the great password.” Spooky, huh?

  • Here’s a better campaign slogan: “227!”

  • Dear President Obama,

    Now, with your self-agrandized image, and with your new slogan, “Forward”, I have the most appropriate pure American response, which any who read this will understand, and you won’t:

    “DRESS … RIGHT!”
