(Video) Obama Praises New Party Socialist Danny Davis

October 24, 2008

Here is a video of Barack Obama praising New Party socialist and proud member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Danny Davis. Barack calls Davis “One of the best Congressmen in the country” because he “shares our values”:

Which values does he mean? From the New Party website:

“Starting Gate” Equality and Welfare Reform:

  • American commitments to equal opportunity should be upheld with the resources to make them real. We favor universal access to quality health care, education, and housing for all children – a program of “starting gate” equality that will tend to equalize chances before people enter the labor force. For adults, we believe most social benefits should be universal – like Social Security is now – but taxed progressively based on private income. The result would be fairer and more fiscally stable.

I think that the socialist progressive Democrats have a different idea of welfare reform than the Republicans had.

    A far left Media …
    A far left President …
    A far left Congress …
    A far left Senate …
    A far left Supreme Court …
    This would eliminate all the checks and
    balances that our democracy is based upon.
    Barack Obama formed his political and economic
    ideology, and his radical associations, during the
    TWENTY YEARS … yes, that’s TWENTY YEARS … when
    he followed Marxist Black Liberation Theology, in
    Jeremiah Wright’s anti-American, racist church.
    And, now, with our country on the brink of depression,
    Obama wants to impose new laws which would change
    America into a third world country.
    You may be upset with George Bush, but in spite
    of Obama’s slogans, John McCain is NOT George Bush …
    so don’t over react to Obama’s 600 million dollar
    Propaganda campaign designed to highjack America !!!
    A vote for Obama is a vote for changing America beyond
    recognition … and, it would be a vote for voter fraud,
    a corrupt media, socialism, and the end to America as we know it.
    Keep America free, strong, safe, and American …
    Elect McCain/Palin on November 4th.

    I know nothing in the world of journalism, but I’m able to find all this info on Obama! I find it hard to believe all the major news outlets don’t know! Makes me wonder how many are in the same pond with Obama? Maybe some are afraid of being fired? But it’s obvious the socialist & the rest of the “ist” had this plan in the works for many years. Acorn, leaders are socialist paid by YOU & ME….this the only reason Obama might be ahead!

    I agree…we have to bombard the news sites, McCain site, Republican site, government site & Christian sites. ALL voters have the right to know the facts! Voters are suppose to pick the next president!

    We need to do this until election day. Make it short to the point. Don’t say anything negative or personal, we want them to go to the sites. Ask WHY no one is reporting this? Include several site addresses include a short heading about the site.

    Ok…let’s get busy…and make McCain President!

    If you are going to attack Obama, at least get your facts straight. Rep. Danny Davis is NOT a member of the New Socialist party. He is a Democrat. He is the congressman from my District. Granted, I’m not going to vote for him this time around, but putting up false claims just feeds to the perception that right wing fanatics will say anything (even lie about the facts). Do yourself a favor and make substantive arguments based on FACTS)

    Danny Davis is absolutely a socialist. He was an original member of the New Party, and they were proudly openly socialist.

    They developed something they called fusion politics, where they would run as Democrats, even though they are socialist progressives. the progressive democrats use the same tactic today. They are socialists, but they call themselves democrats. Big tent in action!

    Progressive is a code word for socialist. If you deny that, you are either uneducated or an accomplice.
