By now, most have heard of the Obama campaign's new slogan, "Forward," and the dubious scrubbing of all references to the Marxist origins of the motto on its Wikipedia entry. During his Thursday evening broadcast, Glenn Beck reviewed the roots of President Obama's leftwing ideology and those who have served as his inspiration -- from far-left radical Frank Marshall Davis to Bill Ayers and his father, Tom. Beck's clip is featured below. And the information that follows on the president's new slogan is, we daresay, outrageous.
Watch below as Beck discusses Obama's mentors as they move "forward" in achieving their goals. He notes how little is truly known about the president and how little vetting was done by the mainstream media when he first came on the scene.
But what then is so significant about the slogan, "Forward" and why would the left, in one instance, purposely choose a word that is code-speak among Marxists and then go out of its way to hide all reference to that fact later? That question remains unanswered, but circulating the Internet are a myriad Soviet and Maoist propaganda posters that provide hard-hitting insight into just how meaningful the "forward" saying truly is. Take a walk down Communist lane as Stalin, Lenin and Mao blast "forward" for victory. The pertinent text has been translated to English and is featured in the captions below each image.
As previously noted by The Blaze, the Russian word for "forward" transliterates to "vpered" -- which also, not coincidentally, served as the name of Joseph Stalin's newspaper, "Forward for Stalin."
Between Stalin and Mao at least 70 million or more were killed. Is this the kind of "forward" thinking and moving the president truly seeks to resurrect in his slogan?
With historical proof as obvious as this available for anyone in the world to see via a rudimentary Google search, it is difficult to believe President Obama and his campaign did not know the origins and, moreover, the significance of the word "forward" when choosing their new slogan. In fact, all indications seem to point to it being a rather brazen and deliberate move.
There is a saying ironically coined by Maya Angelou: "The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them."
