In a major scoop on National Review Online today, Stanley Kurtz has found that Barack Obama, contrary to claims made by his staff and supporters during the 2008 campaign, was a member of the socialist third party in Chicago, that was called The New Party. Kurtz writes:
In 2008, candidate Obama deceived the American public about his potentially damaging tie to this third party. The issue remains as fresh as today’s headlines, as Romney argues that Obama is trying to move the United States toward European-style social democracy, which was precisely the New Party’s goal.
The New Party was a self-proclaimed socialist organization, the arm of Illinois ACORN, and an affiliate of Michael Harrington’s Democratic Socialists of America, which also supported the party. As Kurtz explains:
The documents reveal that the New Party’s central aim was to move the United States steadily closer to European social democracy, a goal that Mitt Romney has also attributed to Obama. New Party leaders disdained mainstream Democrats, considering them tools of business, and promised instead to create a partnership between electedofficials and local community organizations, with the goal of socializing the American economy to an unprecedented degree.
Kurtz’s outstanding research reveals that Obama and his campaign staff carefully worked to hide his own radical past, and his own now documented socialist views. Now that the truth has been disclosed, will the MSM let its readers learn about it? The answer is obvious: getting out the truth is up to us.
