Obama Official Endorses Karl Marx on Class Warfare (Updated)Topics: Political News and commentaries
Let there now be no further doubt as to what is going on within the inner councils of the Obama Administration and where it stands on communism and class-warfare:
[...] After a weak hedge (against the inevitable firestorm to come?), a member of the Obama Administration -- who divides his time between advising Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner and the SEC -- admits on his personal blog that he agrees with Karl Marx on class warfare. That "class struggle" must be decided by "force" -- and that yes indeed, again in his words "Force can mean physical force" and, oh yes, "the force of the political process." And oh by the way, this means issues must be "reformulated in terms of class struggle or class warfare."And then there's that ... shall we say -- 'coincidence' ... of Team Obama having officially launching Obama's 2012 campaign on Karl Marx's birthday.
Where have we heard this belief in Marx before?
Here. From former SEIU leader Andy Stern lauding the Marxist slogan "workers of the world unite." Stern is an Obama ally who was noted at one point early in the administration for having visited the White House 22 times.
And here from Ron Bloom, the Obama auto czar. Mr. Bloom, a former union official turned Obama "Manufacturing Czar." Mr Bloom is seen here saying that the free market is nonsense and that he agrees with Mao that "political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun."
By the way, the 'Karl Marx endorsing' Obama official is Rick Bookstaber, a member of the Obama Administration. He describes his job as working in the Office of Financial Research and, until recently, he was Senior Policy Adviser to the Financial Stability Oversight Council as well as Senior Policy Adviser at the SEC.
