Holy shit, Socialist Is A Code Word For “Black”. I thought I had heard some ridiculous race cards played recently, however this one takes the cake…

Shame on the Kansis City Star for publishing a reverse racism piece like this. More Liberal Bullshit trying to manipulate the masses to vote for poor ol’ Barack

Lewis Diuguid, Kansas City Star Editorial Page columnist, posted an opinion piece on their paper that Socialist is a code word used to refer to Blacks

Those mentioned in his “article” may have followed Socialism, however, socialism far predates them and there are many more famous Socialists in history that are not black. Let’s look at the past 100 years, what has socialism referred to… Russia, China, Venezuela, Cuba, Vietnam, Europe… Stalin, Lenin, Engels , Marx, Chavez, Castro, Ayers etc… Let’s look a little further back to the 1800’s… Owen, Fourier, Proudhon, Blac, Cabet, Weitling

As for as Palin and McCain’s use of the term, it is terms of economic socialism and SOCIALISM DOES NOT WORK. Look at Russia… China has abandoned a good chunck of their Socialist agenda… Cuba is slowly moving away from it… The only reason Chavez has not failed yet is the oil prices… However he has over extended himself thinking oil prices were going to remain at record levels and continue to rise. It will fail in Venezuela as well… That is the SOCIALIST philosophy that McCain is talking about. Spread the wealth around…

Hey Lewis, are you a moron, racist for even bringing this up? Get a grip. And yes Obama is serving his Socialist Masters. And I am not referring to slavery, but rather the higher ups in the socialist ring that elevated him to the Presidential race, the Franks, Ayers, Pelosis, Dodds, etc…

The “socialist” label that Sen. John McCain and his GOP presidential running mate Sarah Palin are trying to attach to Sen. Barack Obama actually has long and very ugly historical roots.

J. Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI from 1924 to 1972, used the term liberally to describe African Americans who spent their lives fighting for equality.

Those freedom fighters included the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., who led the Civil Rights Movement; W.E.B. Du Bois, who in 1909 helped found the NAACP which is still the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization; Paul Robeson, a famous singer, actor and political activist who in the 1930s became involved in national and international movements for better labor relations, peace and racial justice; and A. Philip Randolph, who founded and was the longtime head of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters and a leading advocate for civil rights for African Americans.

McCain and Palin have simply reached back in history to use an old code word for black. It set whites apart from those deemed unAmerican and those who could not be trusted during the communism scare.

Shame on McCain and Palin.

  2. Possibly THE most ridiculous, unprofessional and disgusting column ever written on a presidential race.

    He is either a fool, an idiot or evil for trying to decieve the reading public.

  4. Ridiculous Argument – but, for the sake of argument…

    If the author really wanted to make the point stick that “socialist” is code for “black” – at least he should have researched the blacks he chose to highlight to be sure they were NOT socialists.
    W.E.B DuBOIS – Studied in Berlin under Gustav von Schmoller (leading member – Socialists of the Chair, promoted corporationist State-Industry-Labor nexus). Honorary Dissertation – The Negro & Communism. Praised Nazi economy in 1936 (to be fair he was outspoken against Nazi treatment of Jews). He was a Lenin Peace Prize winner. 1953 – stated Stalin was a great man. 1950 – was American Labor Party senate candidate. 1958 – joined Trotskyists, ex-Commies and other radicals to form united left-wing coalition to challenge NY senate & assembly seats. 1961 – Joined Communist Party USA.
    PAUL ROBESON – Frequent visitor to USSR. Another Lenin Peace Prize winner. Praised communism. 1952 – Praised Stalin for his deep humanity, wise understanding and dedication to peaceful existence with people of the world; was “wise and good.” ID’d in the Nazi Black Book as communist.
    A. PHILLIP RANDOLPH- @ the age of 21, he joined the Socialist Party. Shunned reform and integration, as advocated by who – WEB DuBOIS, and instead promoted socialism and trade unionism.
    And, for fear of being labeled racist – I almost didn’t look this up, but to be fair in this response, I decided to do it anyway – and I was surprised. …
    MLK, Jr. – Main advisor & mentor was Bayard Rustin, an openly gay socialist. MLK was urged to distance himself from Rustin; he never did. Later in his life, MLK gave a speech saying that “Something’s wrong with capitalism. There must be a better distribution of wealth, and maybe America must move toward democratic socialism.” Desired a redistribution of resources to correct racial and economic injustice. “True compassion is more than tossing a coin to a beggar… it comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.” Maybe not a card-carrying socialist, but he held some pretty socialist views.
