    Obama Affinity to Marxists Dates Back to College Days
    Barack Obama shrugs off charges of socialism, but noted in his own memoir that he carefully chose Marxist professors as friends in college.

    Barack Obama laughs off charges of socialism. Joe Biden scoffs at references to Marxism. Both men shrug off accusations of liberalism.

    But Obama himself acknowledges that he was drawn to socialists and even Marxists as a college student. He continued to associate with Marxists later in life, even choosing to launch his political career in the living room of a self-described Marxist, William Ayers, in 1995, when Obama was 34.

    Obama's affinity for Marxists began when he attended Occidental College in Los Angeles.

    "To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully," the Democratic presidential candidate wrote in his memoir, "Dreams From My Father." "The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists."

    Obama's interest in leftist politics continued after he transferred to Columbia University in New York. He lived on Manhattan's Upper East Side, venturing to the East Village for what he called "the socialist conferences I sometimes attended at Cooper Union."

    After graduating from Columbia in 1983, Obama spent a year working for a consulting firm and then went to work for what he described as "a Ralph Nader offshoot" in Harlem.

    "In search of some inspiration, I went to hear Kwame Toure, formerly Stokely Carmichael of Black Panther fame, speak at Columbia," Obama wrote in "Dreams," which he published in 1995. "At the entrance to the auditorium, two women, one black, one Asian, were selling Marxist literature."

    Here is the Democrats Candidate.


    Gerald Werner in the London Telegraph:

    "Whenever allegations are levelled against Barack Obama of connections with extremists, the rebuttal is routine and familiar. He was only eight years old when it happened, the old terrorist is now a pussycat living in an academic ivory tower (even when he defiantly says "I should have bombed more") and Obama has changed his place of worship. So, that is all very reassuring.

    Amid the storm of claims and vindications, however, there is one issue that cannot be regarded as historical: Barack Obama's active campaigning, just two years ago, in August 2006, in Kenya on behalf of the controversial presidential candidate Raila Odinga. Odinga is an East German-educated leftist whose eldest son is named Fidel.

    Raila Odinga had done a deal with the Islamic faction to introduce Shariah law in predominantly Christian Kenya, if he became president, including a female dress code. How do the Beltway sisters feel about that? Obama shared platforms with him and spoke in his support at rallies; there are clips of his activity on YouTube. After Odinga lost the election his supporters engaged in ethnic cleansing against the rival Kikuyu, leaving 1,500 dead.

    Odinga told the BBC: "Barack Obama's father is my maternal uncle." The Obama campaign vigorously denies any such relationship, except that both men belong to the Luo tribe. The fact that this has never been definitively established or discredited is testimony to how little is known about Obama, just one week before a presidential election."

    The people Obama associates with are definite reason for concern, for any rational American. You have to stick your head in the sand, not to see it.
