Obama 2012 campaign slogan 'Forward' shared by Hitler Youth, Marxists, Socialists

Filed under the category of 'Color Me Suprised' the Obama administration again takes off it's mask to reveal it's true nature, absorbing the terminology of other leftist organizations from the past...

 "Barack Obama’s latest campaign slogan “Forward!” also happens to be a Nazi marching tune. Vorwärts! Vorwärts! was a marching song of the Hitler youth."

"Mussolini was editor of the Socialist newspaper, Avanti (Forward), in April 1912. Avanti took its name from Vorwarts, the German Socialist paper. He was eventually kicked out of the party but they gave him his start because Socialism is the way Forward. L’Avanti still exists today." Link

And from the pages of the Washington Times..

"The Obama campaign released its new campaign slogan Monday in a 7-minute video. The title card has simply the word "Forward" with the "O" having the familiar Obama logo from 2008. It will be played at rallies this weekend that mark the Obama re-election campaign's official beginning.

There have been at least two radical-left publications named "Vorwaerts" (the German word for "Forward"). One was the daily newspaper of the Social Democratic Party of Germany whose writers included Friedrich Engels and Leon Trotsky. It still publishes as the organ of Germany's SDP, though that party has changed considerably since World War II. Another was the 1844 biweekly reader of the Communist League. Karl Marx, Engels and Mikhail Bakunin are among the names associated with that publication.

East Germany named its Army soccer club ASK Vorwaerts Berlin (later FC Vorwaerts Frankfort).

Vladimir Lenin founded the publication "Vpered" (the Russian word for "forward") in 1905. Soviet propaganda film-maker Dziga Vertov made a documentary whose title is sometimes translated as "Forward, Soviet" (though also and more literally as "Stride, Soviet")."

So again we see the familiar terminology of over-arching government control morphing into a stunningly oversimplified mantra to be repeated by the mind-numbed masses that is only half as hard to remember as "Hope and Change'. Forward!

You do realize that Hitler, whom you bring up, was right-wing like yourself. Indeed the Marxists were our (uneasy) allies in the defeat of Nazi Germany.

"And yet, the definition of its supposed opposite, by the same academic source, is rather different. "Nazism: The ideology and policies of Adolf Hitler and his National Socialist German Worker's Party from 1921 to 1945." Isn't it a strange sort of opposite that claims to be a socialist worker's party, as opposed to, well, a socialist worker's party?

Consider 13 of the most relevant points from the Nazi Party's 25-point program of 1920, its Munich manifesto:

7. We demand that the State shall make it its first duty to promote the industry and livelihood of the citizens of the State.

10. The activities of the individual must not clash with the interests of the whole, but must proceed within the framework of the community and must be for the general good.

11. Abolition of incomes unearned by work. Breaking of the thraldom of interest.

13. We demand the nationalization of all businesses which have been amalgamated.

14. We demand that there shall be profit sharing in the great industries.

15. We demand a generous development of provision for old age.

17. We demand a land reform suitable to our national requirements, the passing of a law for the confiscation without compensation of land for communal purposes, the abolition of interest on land mortgages, and prohibition of all speculation in land.

18. We demand ruthless war upon all those whose activities are injurious to the common interest.

20. The schools must aim at teaching the pupil to understand the idea of the State. We demand the education of specially gifted children of poor parents, whatever their class or occupation, at the expense of the State.

21. The State must apply itself to raising the standard of health in the nation ...

23. We demand legal warfare against conscious political lies and their dissemination in the press. In order to facilitate the creation of a German national press…. It must be forbidden to publish newspapers which are damaging to the national welfare.

24. We demand liberty for all religious denominations in the State, so far as they are not a danger to it. The Party ... does not bind itself in the matter of creed to any particular confession.

25. That all the foregoing requirements may be realized we demand the creation of a strong central national authority; unconditional authority of the central legislative body over the entire Reich and its organizations in general;

These supposedly right-wing extremists were calling for national health care, social security, state-run schools, communal land development and centralized government control. They were determined advocates of gun control. And if they did not believe it took a village to raise a child, they were certainly enthusiastic about public youth programs. And then there were the complaints about vast conspiracies in the private press. Sounds familiar, doesn't it?

While some argue that the National Socialists became "conservative" as a result of their rapprochement with the great German industrialists following the final defeat of the Strasser wing of the party in late 1932, this conveniently skates over the fact that a) the 12 years concerned represents half of the Nazi Party's lifetime, and, b) Many elements of the avowedly socialist 1920 program were retained after 1933 when the National Socialists took power. Once in power, Vladimir Lenin, too, made capitalistic compromises with his New Economic Program, but this somehow never caused him to be defined as a man of the Right.

The National Socialists were not as radically left as the Soviet Communists, nor are most American Democrats as far left as were the National Socialists. But an examination of their ideological cores reveals the undeniable philosophical kinship between these three parties of the Left." Link
