Uncle Ho and the Founding Fathers
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S.
Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas
Jefferson.” – President Obama talking to reporters alongside Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang.
can't speak for you, of course, but there was no need for me to hear
the words above pass the lips of the US President for me to be convinced
he is a communist.
See, I'm so old I actually got an education when I went to school.
Hell, by the time I had graduated high school I had an education every
bit the equivalent of, at least, a two year college degree -- by today's
standards -- maybe even four years depending upon the individual
institutions of higher learning.
Plus, I am a veteran of the US military during the Vietnam War.
Look. I won't dispute that Uncle Ho may have studied our Founding Fathers and founding documents. Lots of dictators have done so. Heck, if I was a fledgling dictator, I'd be darned sure to study those men and those documents because -- they are dangerous to tyrants and dictators.
I wasn't surprised to hear Obama mention Uncle Ho in a respectful
manner. Not in the least. Ho Chi Minh was an enemy of the United
states. 'Nough said.
President, Obama is a died in the wool socialist. (Socialism is what
one might call "Communism Lite.") His spread the wealth policies and
statist philosophy of governing and disrespect for the Constitution, the
Bill of Rights, and his shallow knowledge of US history mark him for
what he truly is.
Ho Chi Minh was a bone fide tyrant. A communist tyrant!
The following is a clip from a piece published in Reader's Digest back in November of 1968:
terror had its real beginning when Red dictator Ho Chi Minh
consolidated his power in the North. More than a year before his 1954
victory over the French, he launched a savage campaign against his own
people. In virtually every North Vietnamese village, strong-arm squads
assembled the populace to witness the “confessions” of landowners. As
time went on, businessmen, intellectuals, school teachers, civic leaders
— all who represented a potential source of future opposition — were
also rounded up and forced to “confess” to “errors of thought.” There
followed public “trials,” conviction and, in many cases, execution.
People were shot, beheaded, beaten to death; some were tied up, thrown
into open graves and covered with stones until they were crushed to
death, Ho has renewed his terror in North Vietnam periodically. Between
50,000 and 100,000 are believed to have died in these blood-baths — in a
coldly calculated effort to discipline the party and the masses. To be
sure, few who escape Ho’s terror now seem likely to tempt his wrath.
During the 1950s, however, he had to quell some sizeable uprisings in
North Vietnam — most notably one that occurred in early November 1956,
in the An province, which included Ho’s birthplace village of Nam Dan.
So heavily had he taxed the region that the inhabitants finally banded
together and refused to meet his price. Ho sent troops to collect, and
then sent in an army division, shooting. About 6,000 unarmed villagers
were killed. The survivors scattered, some escaping to the South. The
slaughter went largely unnoticed by a world then preoccupied with the
Soviet Union’s rape of Hungary." SOURCE: http://www.paulbogdanor.com/left/vietnam/hochiminh.html
Consider this: "On
November 15, 2008, Sam Webb, National Chair of the Communist Party USA
delivered an address to the Communist Party USA National Committee.
During his address, he noted the following concerning the party's
relationship with Obama,
"The left can and should
advance its own views and disagree with the Obama administration without
being disagreeable. Its tone should be respectful. We are speaking to a
friend." SOURCE: http://keywiki.org/index.php/Barack_Obama_and_the_Communist_Party
late Marxist academic Manning Marable claimed that Barack Obama has
read some of his books and "understands what socialism is."
writing in the December 2008 issue of British Trotskyist journal
Socialist Review, also claimed that Obama worked in Chicago with
socialists with backgrounds in the Communist Party.
makes Obama different is that he has also been a community organizer. He
has read left literature, including my works, and he understands what
socialism is. A lot of the people working with him are, indeed,
socialists with backgrounds in the Communist Party or as independent
Marxists. There are a lot of people like that in Chicago who have worked
with him for years... " SOURCE: http://keywiki.org/index.php/Barack_Obama_and_the_Communist_Party
Frank Marshall Davis became Obama's mentor at the tender age of ten years. " ... FBI file reveals that Davis (born 1905) became interested in the Communist Party USA as far back as 1931.
from the mid/late '30s to the early '40s Davis was involved in several
Communist Party fronts including the the National Negro Congress, the
League of American Writers, the National Federation for Constitutional
Liberties and the Civil Rights Congress.
The FBI first began
tracking Davis in 1944 when they identified him as member of the
Communist Party's Dorie Miller Club in Chicago-card number 47544.
taught courses at the party controlled Abraham Lincoln School in
Chicago and attended meetings of the party's Cultural Club until he left
for Hawaii in 1948." SOURCE: http://keywiki.org/index.php/Barack_Obama_and_the_Communist_Party
recommend you read the entire article cited above. It is entitled:
"Barack Obama and the Communist Party." You will find it at: http://keywiki.org/index.php/Barack_Obama_and_the_Communist_Party )
And finally -- "The
famed Russian news site “Pravda,” which ironically was formed as the
official Communist publication of the former Soviet Union, recently
released a scathing opinion column entitled, “Obama’s Soviet Mistake,”
in which the author unabashedly labels the U.S. president a
“Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without
calling it so.” - SOURCE: http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2012/11/blazecast-russian-news-outlet-labels.html#sthash.eECgrcwI.dpuf
No, I was NOT surprised by Mr. Obama's drift from the teleprompter line. (NOW you know why his "handlers" have him virtually chained to a teleprompter!)
dear reader, what is even MORE troubling is this: With all this
knowledge of Obama sympathies toward communism, roughly half the
American electorate put him in office -- and kept him there for a second
term. Now THAT is TRULY frightening!
