Obama’s Socialist Allies and Policies – A Meeting of the Ideals

There are two great posts at KeyWikiBlog that you need to hop over and read:

Farrakan and Pro-Obama Socialists Confer in Chicago

Key excerpt:

Several key figures on the black left and Louis Farrakan of the Nation of Islam, gathered Saturday, March 20, 2010 for the “We Count! The Black Agenda is the American Agenda” Conference in Chicago.

The conversation was moderated by Tavis Smiley. Invited panelists included former Obama adviser Cornel West and Michael Eric Dyson, both of Democratic Socialists of America, current senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, leftist Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, far left California Congresswoman Barbara Lee, Tom Burrell, Marc Morial, Ben Jealous of the NAACP and the ever controversial Al Sharpton.

Deliberately Bankrupt Medicaid to bring about Socialized Health Care?


Key excerpt:

Purposefully create economic chaos and de-stabilize millions of lives to pursue an ideological ideal?

Who would would propose such madness?

Chris Maisano would.

What do both have as a common thread? Radical extremism and socialism… Obama’s favorite recipe. Make sure you read them all the way through and make KeyWikiBlog a daily visit. You just can’t make this crap up…
