Barack Obama — The Most Radical Leftist To Ever Get This Close To Occupying The White House?

[Welcome, Anchoress readers! Updates at bottom.]

I wasn’t going to post today but after following a couple of links from The Anchoress I just have to. American Thinker’s James Simpson, a former White House staff economist and budget analyst, connects way too many dots that directly link Barack Obama to the most radical and destructive Leftist practices and strategies imaginable.

Despite the mass media news blackout, a series of books, talk radio and the blogosphere have managed to expose Barack Obama’s connections to his radical mentors — Weather Underground bombers William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis and others. David Horowitz and his Discover the have also contributed a wealth of information and have noted Obama’s radical connections since the beginning.

Yet, no one to my knowledge has yet connected all the dots between Barack Obama and the Radical Left. When seen together, the influences on Obama’s life comprise a who’s who of the radical leftist movement, and it becomes painfully apparent that not only is Obama a willing participant in that movement, he has spent most of his adult life deeply immersed in it. [Emph mine]

These relationships are easy to see in this flow chart he provides.

ACORN's ties to Obama

The chart puts Barack Obama at the epicenter of an incestuous stew of American radical leftism. Not only are his connections significant, they practically define who he is. Taken together, they constitute a who’s who of the American radical left, and guiding all is the Cloward-Piven strategy.

Conspicuous in their absence are any connections at all with any other group, moderate, or even mildly leftist. They are all radicals, firmly bedded in the anti-American, communist, socialist, radical leftist mesh. [Emph mine]

Be sure and also follow that link to discover what Cloward-Piven really is, how long it’s been in practice, how it has already affected you directly, and how it is intertwined in the current financial crisis mess. Simpson presents a laundry list of radical Leftists, their organizations and interactions and interrelationships with Barack Obama:

Saul Alinsky

Most people are unaware that Barack Obama received his training in “community organizing” from Saul Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation. But he did. In and of itself that marks his heritage and training as that of a radical activist. One really needs go no further. But we have.

Bill Ayers

Obama objects to being associated with SDS bomber Bill Ayers, claiming he is being smeared with “guilt by association.” But they worked together at the Woods Fund. The Wall Street Journal added substantially to our knowledge by describing in great detail Obama’s work over five years with SDS bomber Bill Ayers {…}

Theresa Heinz Kerry’s favorite charity, the Tides Foundation. A partial list of Tides grants tells you all you need to know: ACLU, ACORN, Center for American Progress, Center for Constitutional Rights (a communist front,) CAIR, Earth Justice, Institute for Policy Studies (KGB spy nest), National Lawyers Guild (oldest communist front in U.S.), People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), and practically every other radical group there is. {…}.

Carl Davidson and the New Party

We have heard about Bomber Bill, but we hear little about fellow SDS member Carl Davidson. According to Discover the Networks, Davidson was an early supporter of Barack Obama and a prominent member of Chicago’s New Party {…} Obama sought and received the New Party’s endorsement, and they assisted with his campaign. {…}

George Soros

{…} The President of his Open Society Institute is Aryeh Neier, founder of the radical Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). {…} Neier is firmly committed to supporting the hugely successful radical organization, ACORN, and would be certain back their favored candidate, Barack Obama.


Obama has spent a large portion of his professional life working for ACORN or its subsidiaries[.] {…}

If that’s not enough to curdle your milk, then contemplate the following questions asked by Simpson that the Obama-worshiping MSM never will:

I ask you, is it possible ACORN would train Obama to take leadership positions within ACORN without telling him what he was training for? Is it possible ACORN would put Obama in leadership positions without clueing him into what his purpose was?? Is it possible that this most radical of organizations would put someone in charge of training its trainers, without him knowing what it was he was training them for?

As a community activist for ACORN; as a leadership trainer for ACORN; as a lead organizer for ACORN’s Project Vote; as an attorney representing ACORN’s successful efforts to impose Motor Voter regulations in Illinois; as ACORN’s representative in lobbying for the expansion of high risk housing loans through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that led to the current crisis; as a recipient of their assistance in his political campaigns — both with money and campaign workers; it is doubtful that he was unaware of ACORN’s true goals. It is doubtful he [Obama] was unaware of the Cloward-Piven Strategy. [Emph mine]

This is highlighted by an Obama statement — in his own words:

I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career (emphasis added). Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work. – Barack Obama, Speech to ACORN, November 2007 (Courtesy Newsmax.)

Simpson then closes with this devastating accusation against Obama:

Barack Obama, the Cloward-Piven candidate, no matter how he describes himself, has been a radical activist for most of his political career. That activism has been in support of organizations and initiatives that at their heart seek to tear the pillars of this nation asunder in order to replace them with their demented socialist vision. Their influence has spread so far and so wide that despite their blatant culpability in the current financial crisis, they are able to manipulate Capital Hill politicians to cut them into $140 billion of the bailout pie! [Emph mine]

Barack Obama — the candidate of CHANGE, that’s for sure!

Radical, Leftist, Destructive change!

[Update: See pics of Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven plus a review of their first big success over at Cheat-Seeking Missiles. Laer calls Obama a Trojan horse. Me? I’m beginning to think that he’s the real-thing Manchurian Candidate.]
