I’ve been complaining about Obama’s Socialist tendencies for the better part of a year…and now I find out that he was actually a member of the New Party.
In my article entitled “Top Ten Things I Hate about Obama” (you know, the one that was never finished), my number one thing was his blatant Socialism. I was often told that I was just, “crying socialist” but now, now I have proof!! Mwahaha! And to think that you scorned me!!
I then did my own research, thinking that his words were too good to be true. I mean, come on, this gave me the chance to say I told you so to everyone I know.
And yet…it is true. Obama was a member of the New Party, or at least, they claimed he was and he never denounced them for it. 😉
In fact, in 1995 Obama sought the New Party’s endorsement for his 1996 state senate run. And endorse him they did.
According to http://www.populist.com/11.96.Edit.html, “New Party member Barack Obama was uncontested for a State Senate seat from Chicago.”
According to http://www.chicagodsa.org/ngarchive/ng47.html which is an archive of a newsletter from http://www.chicagodsa.org/index.html, the Chicago Democratic Socialists of America, Obama was endorsed by, and requested volunteers from, the DSA. Specifically, the article says, “Secondly, the NP’s ’96 Political Program has been enormously successful with 3 of 4 endorsed candidates winning electoral primaries. All four candidates attended the NP membership meeting on April 11th to express their gratitude. Danny Davis, winner in the 7th Congressional District, invited NPers to join his Campaign Steering Committee. Patricia Martin, who won the race for Judge in 7th Subcircuit Court, explained that due to the NP she was able to network and get experienced advice from progressives like Davis. Barack Obama, victor in the 13th State Senate District, encouraged NPers to join in his task forces on Voter Education and Voter Registration.”
Now–Confirmed by JD Hayworth!!
Barack Obama got the Nomination of both the New Party (Socialist Party) and the Democratic party, in order to maximize his votes. The Supreme Court has since rejected this practice, called fusion. So, JD Hayworth has now said it, Barack Obama WAS a socialist.
He also gave me the following review: “industrious…to be congratualted…and a role model” =D
On another note, I contaced the Progressive Populist, asking about whether they stand by their comments of calling Obama a New Party member. They do. I talked to Jim Cullen, the editor, and also the writer of the article. If he wrote it, it must be true, and he probably got the information from the New Party itself, he says. The New Party itself no longer exists, but its senior members formed the Working Families Party, but say that they have no official connection to their founders, and therefore don’t want to comment on Obama’s status in such a party.
