As damning as it is surprising (well, kind of surprising), new documents show that President Obama was purportedly a member of the “New Party,” a far-left, socialist group that was once categorized as a third-party alternative in the U.S. political system. It’s only somewhat startling, as Obama has had close ties with a plethora of radical leftist groups, such as the Democratic Socialists of America.
A picture of the President was released on the cover of a 1996 New Party News pamphlet, which already gave a prominent sliver of evidence that revealed his ties with the group. But according to Stanley Kurtz of the National Review, there’s a hell of a lot more to the story.
First, Obama allegedly joined the party in 1996, the same year he appeared on the cover of the pamphlet:
According to Kurtz:
Recently obtained evidence from the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society now definitively establishes that Obama was a member of the New Party. He also signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and associate himself with the New Party while in office.
Evidently, minutes from a January 1996 meeting also relay an explicit message. “Barack Obama, candidate for State Senate in the 13th Legislative District, gave a statement to the membership and answered questions,” the minutes read. “He signed the New Party ‘Candidate Contract’ and requested an endorsement from the New Party. He also joined the New Party.”
As I previously indicated, Obama’s radically progressive roots are already widely known. Be that as it may, considering the President’s astounding efficacy in duping the American people in 2008, any additional proof is helpful.
