Newsmax's Kessler Likens Obama to Soviet Leader
Topic: Newsmax

We've detailed how Newsmax decried how President Obama will deploy "a $750 million wrecking ball to demolish the Republican opponent," even as Newsmax will deploy its own multimillion-dollar, Scaife-funded wrecking ball to demolish Obama.

Another swing of that wrecking ball came in  Ronald Kessler's Nov. 28 column likening Obama to leaders in Soviet Russia:

 “Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you,” Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev declared when addressing Western ambassadors at a reception at the Polish embassy in Moscow in 1956.

This was an assertion of the Marxist contention that capitalism as a system would collapse and be replaced by socialism. By this philosophy, wealthy people exploit the working class, and the capitalist system must be replaced by a socialist government that would redistribute the wealth.

If that philosophy sounds familiar, it’s the approach taken by President Barack Obama and the Occupy Wall Street movement he has embraced. At every turn, Obama demonizes those who have achieved financial success, and he has made hatred of the wealthy the key to his re-election campaign.


Obama rejects this underlying premise of the capitalist system that is a key to this country’s success. At the same time, he disses Americans for being “a little bit lazy” over pursuing foreign investment and for having “lost our ambition, our imagination, and our willingness to do things that built the Golden Gate Bridge.”

His comment about “bitter” small-town voters who “cling” to their faith, along with their guns, and their “antipathy to people who aren’t like them,” suggests just how much disdain he has for a large segment of Americans.


Khrushchev was proven wrong when he said the Soviet Union will bury America. Obama will be proven wrong about this country and what it stands for when he is defeated in 2012.

For good measure, Kessler flogs the dead horse of Jeremiah Wright yet again:

Like his self-described mentor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama appears to despise America. On the Sunday following 9/11, Wright characterized the terrorist attacks as a consequence of violent American policies. Wright said America created the AIDS virus to kill off blacks.

“We are only able to maintain our level of living by making sure that Third World people live in grinding poverty,” Wright has said. “God d— America!”

Ninety-nine percent of Americans would walk out if they heard a sermon like that. Instead, Obama listened to such hate speech for 20 years and said he considered Wright a sounding board who was like an uncle to him.

Kessler will be rewriting versions of this anti-Obama tirade again and again until the election.
