A multi-billion dollar media complex with thousands of reporters and researchers couldn’t do in 2008 what a conservative columnist and an army of bloggers did in a few months—uncover Barack Obama’s extensive ties to the Socialist New Party in the mid-1990s. The pertinacious Stanley Kurtz and Breitbart.com’s army of bloggers have uncovered not only Obama’s membership in this Left-wing abomination, but the fact that he signed a “Candidate Contract” and paid dues into the coffers of this group that sought to turn the United States into a socialist utopia. Furthermore, evidence has turned up that at about the same time, Obama had ties to the Chicago branch of the Democratic Socialists of America.
In 2008, conservatives were called right-wing bigots for questioning Obama’s past (Kurtz was referred to as a “right-wing hatchet man” for bringing up Obama’s ties to the New Party). But with Obama moving the country towards European Democratic Socialism, leading us over the cliff of economic suicide (with Greece as our model), many in the mainstream public are taking a second look at conservatives’ siren song of Obama’s past socialist connections as the root of the economic destruction of our country.
