Here is Gary’s essay, Obama’s Brand of Marxism. For more by Gary, visit his website at http://www.garynorth.com/.
In this essay, Gary carefully refutes the idea that Obama is a classical Marxist. He concludes that:
If Obama is a Marxist, he has certainly hidden his true color: red. He has not pursued the central Marxist objective: proletarian revolution. … Obama is an example of the political figure who Marx despised: a bread-and-butter advocate of using the government to subsidize the labor movement, which Marx saw as undermining proletarian solidarity.
His estimation of Obama is:
The key to understanding the next four years of Obama is his desire to get a lifetime of speaking engagements at $100,000 each. He is a professional politician. If he does not go beyond what his handlers demand, he is set for life.
This is not far off our joking assessment of Obama’s all too frequent TV appearances as preparation for an anchor position on CNN.
