    Exclamation Andy Williams accuses Barack Obama of following Marxist theory

    Andy Williams, the veteran pop singer, has accused Barack Obama of "following Marxist theory" and "wanting the country to fail".
    Andy Williams accuses Barack Obama of following Marxist theory - Telegraph

    Williams, a lifelong Republican whose hits include Moon River and Music To Watch Girls By, told the Radio Times he thought Mr Obama wanted to turn the US into a "socialist country".

    The 81-year-old was a friend of the Kennedy family during the 1960s and was present at the Los Angeles rally where Robert F Kennedy was assassinated in 1968.

    "I was very close to Bobby and he asked me to be a delegate for him when he ran for president," he said.

    "He knew about me being a Republican, but just laughed and said, 'Sign yourself in as a Democrat and then change back afterwards'. Sadly, I never got to do that.

    "I was very close to Teddy Kennedy, too, and his death recently brought it all back. What a tragedy. Had he lived, I think Bobby would have been a great president."

    But Williams had a less favourable opinion of the current president.

    "Don't like him at all," he said, "I think he wants to create a socialist country. The people he associates with are very Left-wing. One is registered as a Communist.

    "Obama is following Marxist theory. He's taken over the banks and the car industry. He wants the country to fail."

    Politicians, media personalities and conservative activists have accused the US president of espousing socialist ideas.

    Earlier this month, Jim Greer, the chairman of the Republican Party in Florida, said he was "absolutely appalled that taxpayer dollars are being used to spread President Obama's socialist ideology", after the US leader appeared in a televised address to be shown in classrooms around the country.

    If he's a Marxist, why isn't the government managing the day to day business of the banks and why aren't their profits being used for the benefit of the collective?

    Is Andy Williams really so stupid that he can't tell the difference between a Marxist takeover and a common sense exercise of government power in an economic crisis, or is he just an evil fear monger?

    I guess it depends on how one defines the terms, so I will use slashes to avoid hairsplitting...
    Most everyone I have discussed these types of Marxist/socialist issues with has attempted to talk me down in saying that because there has been no physical proletariat uprising, that Obama and similar ilk are not marxists. I guess their assumption is that this type of uprising needs to be commonplace for a takeover because that is what has happened in the past. It has been my understanding that since socialism/communism has failed for the most part around the world, that the socialist/marxist folks might try a different and new approach, at least at the beginning, because amidst the failures of socialism/communism, they seem rather hell bent to make it work here.

    I'm pretty sure that there will be no response from the White House on this issue, because, after all, if you believe everything that Obama says currently at face value, then you will also believe he supports the second amendment! But what about those affiliations with Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers...

    Socialism is the gateway drug!

    Obama is a Marxist. Bush was a Marxist. Reagan was a Marxist. Eisenhower was a Marxist. Every President starting with Lincoln has been a Marxist.

    Marxism is one of the things that makes America great. American love Marxism. That's why we have adopted the following Marxist ideas.

    Universal, equal, and direct suffrage with secret ballot in all elections, for all citizens over the age of twenty one, without distinction of sex.

    Proportional representation.

    Two-year legislative periods.

    Compensation for elected representatives.

    Right to bear arms.

    Abolition of all laws that place women at a disadvantage compared with men in matters of public or private law.

    Abolition of all laws that limit or suppress the free expression of opinion and restrict or suppress the right of association and assembly.

    Religion is a private matter.

    Abolition of all expenditures from public funds for ecclesiastical and religious purposes.

    Ecclesiastical and religious communities are to be regarded as private associations that regulate their affairs entirely autonomously.

    Secularization of public schools.

    Compulsory attendance at the public schools.

    Graduated income tax.

    Inheritance tax.

    Effective worker protection laws

    Fixing of a legal working day not to exceed eight hours.

    Prohibition of gainful employment for children under the age of fourteen.

    An uninterrupted rest period of at least thirty-six hours every week for every worker.

    Prohibition of the truck system.

    Supervision of all industrial establishments, investigation and regulation of working conditions in the cities and the countryside.

    Labor bureaus.

    Rigorous industrial hygiene.

    Legal equality of agricultural laborers and domestic servants with industrial workers.

    Safeguarding of the freedom of association.

    A system of workers’ insurance

    I'd have to ask you the same question. Are you living in a cave? Or just watching the lame-stream media? HAve you seen the recent news about Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae? Good grief, man! "Common sense exercise of government power in an economic crisis?"

    You're one of them, aren't you? You've gone to the Dark Side!
