Obama tied to radical New Party and the DSA

How big is this? Big enough for Ace to break out the flaming skull and that's usually pretty damn big. (He doesn't do that for giggles. Well, maybe after hitting the Valu-Rite he does, but not usually.) Politically Drunk has the skinny, cited below:

In June sources released information that during his campaign for the State Senate in Illinois, Barack Obama was endorsed by an organization known as the Chicago "New Party". The 'New Party' was a political party established by the Democratic Socialists of America (the DSA) to push forth the socialist principles of the DSA by focusing on winnable elections at a local level and spreading the Socialist movement upwards. The admittedly Socialist Organization experienced a moderate rise in numbers between 1995 and 1999. By 1999, however, the Socialist 'New Party' was essentially defunct after losing a Supreme Court challenge that ruled the organizations "fusion" reform platform as unconstitutional.

After allegations surfaced in early summer over the 'New Party's' endorsement of Obama, the Obama campaign along with the remnants of the New Party and Democratic Socialists of America claimed that Obama was never a member of either organization. The DSA and 'New Party' then systematically attempted to cover up any ties between Obama and the Socialist Organizations. However, it now appears that Barack Obama was indeed a certified and acknowledged member of the DSA's New Party.

On Tuesday, I discovered a web page that had been scrubbed from the New Party's website. The web page which was published in October 1996, was an internet newsletter update on that years congressional races. Although the web page was deleted from the New Party's website, the non-profit Internet Archive Organization had archived the page.

From the October 1996 Update of the DSA 'New Party':

"New Party members are busy knocking on doors, hammering down lawn signs, and phoning voters to support NP candidates this fall. Here are some of our key races...

Illinois: Three NP-members won Democratic primaries last Spring and face off against Republican opponents on election day: Danny Davis (U.S. House), Barack Obama (State Senate) and Patricia Martin (Cook County Judiciary)."

Beyond the archived web page from the Socialist New Party is the recognition by the "Progressive Populist" magazine in November 1996 that Obama was indeed an acknowledged member of the Socialist Party.

More from Thomas Lifson and at Nice Deb's and at No Quarter. Here's even more from No Quarter about his radical ties:

-- Barack Obama attended and participated in meetings of the Chicago New Party and the Chicago DSA, the local affiliate of the Democratic Socialists of America.

-- Barack Obama sought the endorsement of the Chicago DSA which
required rigorous scrutiny by the party’s Political Committee as well as Mr. Obama’s signature on a contract promising “a visible and active relationship with the NP.”

-- Barack Obama actively used the endorsement from the Chicago DSA.

-- Barack Obama won his DSA-endorsed and -backed campaign to secure his seat in the Illinois State Senate.

-- Barack Obama continued his involvement with the Chicago DSA — including directly asking the group to join
"his task forces on Voter Education and Voter Registration" — and received their endorsements in subsequent campaigns.

Now, we knew he had radical ideas, and radical ties. But this is the first time we actually have him connected to a Socialist political party, and that he not only sought their endorsement, but continued his affiliation with them even after being elected to the state legislature. This isn't some cockamamie conspiracy theory. Bloggers (those listed above) have tracked down the proof. So now we know where a lot of his ideas come from. It comes from the socialist injection of ideology to the Democrat party that he and his associates dragged the party kicking and screaming towards. Hell, I thought that the shift to the Left started in the 60's, but apparently it got ratcheted up in the early 90's in an effort to turn this nation into some sort of socialist utopia.

Given the fact that his minions in the media ignored the Ayers ties until now, we doubt this will get picked up by them, so it's going to fall to us to get the word out on this. The public must know that Barack Obama was a part of a radical socialist organization with the sole intent of destroying the nation from within the halls of power.

Keep watching the bloggers above for updates. Also, add Gateway pundit to the list of those covering this story. JammieWearingFool and Allahpundit weigh in.
