New Obama slogan "Forward!" has long ties to Marxism, Socialism

LINK


quote:

The Obama campaign apparently didn't look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, "Forward" — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism. Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name "Forward!" or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called "Forward (generic name of socialist publications)." "The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications," the online encyclopedia explains. The slogan "Forward!" reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

Yes it's all part of a Marxist-Socialist plot to take over America. Actually, I think that the fact that it has ties to Marxism and Socialism is pretty cool.

Remember that Conservatives want things to stay the same.

Why do you think msnbc says 'lean forward?'

Unless they're really saying 'lean forward and grab your ankles.'

What's bad is it probably really is unintentional.

It's in the genes, EST. One man's freedom...is another's greed and civic irresponsibility. No miracle that the presumption of superiority, accompanied by a hearty does of sanctimony and arrogance...would be described in a common language.

Nothing new under the sun. Another dogfight, per the last century. Earth 2012. But who knows...maybe the last big one, for a while.

Using Forward as a campaign slogan takes gravitas.

So Obama drove the car so far into the ditch that the quickest way out is Forward?

If this is what's being spun in the echo-chamber, it's worse than I thought. And I think it's obscene as it is.

Who is putting this forward? This might be list worthy.

I like how it's not good enough that the slogan just sucks. There always has to be something more fantastic.

The best part is that there is no word FORWARD in French.

the idea that marxists in France use the word forward, and that therefore the word itself is contaminated with marxies
is nonsense that only a backward person could swallow.

hush. dont let on.

yes of course it was unintentional, because the Obama supporters know less about Euro Marxism than FOX. FOX is obsessed with it.

The Obama guys thought it meant future oriented progress.
silly them.

What I attached above from wikipedia are the ONLY listings it gives for the term in politics. Do you disagree?

I love that the word for a direction is being associated with the political enemies of the reactionaries.

and notice which direction the reactionaries want for America.
Take back America means backward, to 1955.
If only they could.

You know, back when US companies did not move their profits to tax havens off shore.
