WND Columnist Likens Obama to Russian Bolsheviks
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily has already likened President Obama to Nazis, the Antichrist and the Angel of Death. Why not Russian Bolsheviks? From a n Oct. 30 WND column by Alex Markovsky:

To say that Obama is a Bolshevik may sound extreme, but as someone who grew up in the former Soviet Union and holds degrees in economics and political science from the University of Marxism-Leninism, viewing the American political landscape through red communist glasses reveals a scary reality: The United States elected a radical socialist government committed to the transformation of the American capitalist free-enterprise system into an egalitarian society driven by a state-controlled political economy.


Obama came on the American scene at the right time: The lack of education, historical perspective and political literacy turned the American electorate into what Bolshevik Trotsky called the "voting herd." The combination of impending economic crisis and the weak candidacy on the Republican side created fertile ground for a talented demagogue to seduce the nation.

Obama's agenda reads as if it came straight out of the University of Marxism-Leninism. There is nothing new here but the striking parallels between the Russian Bolsheviks and Obama's government: both utterly convinced in their own uncompromising righteousness and their fanatic belief in economic equality, and both equally obsessed with power and control.

To control the masses, as the Bolsheviks' teaching goes, the leader should instill fear and hope. There is plenty of hope in the "Audacity of Hope" and plenty of fear being peddled in the president's speeches and actions. He has been frightening the country with the threat of such enemies as Wall Street, the undue influence of big corporations, special-interest groups and the so-called extremists of the tea party.


Obama is clearly following Lenin's script, spending and printing money at unprecedented levels. The plan is simple: Replace American self-reliance with government dependency.  Increasing government spending in ever growing numbers – be it for bailouts, stimulus plans, health care, manure management, tattoo removal, condoms or solar energy – is the program; the area doesn't really matter. The objective is to spend until the country is in such debt as to result in default or hyperinflation, causing the destruction of our currency and the obliteration of wealth. The more the American people are indebted to government, the more they will turn to the government to save them, assuring Democratic one-party rule for the future.

In a sense, Obama is taking a page from the playbook of FDR, who successfully exploited economic difficulties to ensure the Democratic Party's continued domination and to have the voters appoint him president for life.

The vitriolic sleaze never ends at WND, does it?
