FORWARD: Socialism or Death! Are You Serious Mr President? Are You Serious?

by Mike

Emblazoned across the screen of Obama's new campaign video, is an old socialist slogan, ahem, freshened for the 'O'ccasion

Barry the Marxist and Joe the Gaffer rolled out a new campaign slogan today, but just like most ideas from the left, it has an old and tarnished history. H/T the Drudge Report, for picking up on the Washington Times article titled New Obama Slogan Has Long Ties To Marxism, Socialism, and adding the rather nice ‘Socialism or Death’ poster.

Socialism or Death! How Nice! The real problem with Socialism of all kinds, including Obamunism, is that you get socialism AND death!

Excerpt from the Washington Times story:
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).”
(If that article disappears as promised, here is a PDF of the original)

“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.
