Raised by Marxists. Father was anti-colonialist (read: anti-American). Mentor growing up was a communist. Hung out with radicals and communists in college. Mentored by Roger Ailes and Bernadine Dohrn, communists, after college. None of that probably had any effect on Obama's political leanings. But Allen West is a nut for pointing out the obvious? I think the better question is how could he not be a Marxist or socialist with that upbringing?

The one thing that's obvious is what Allen West is but I am not allowed to go there on this site.

Forget Allen West. What about the other facts that I raised?

The better question is: Why are all of Obama's critics continually accusing him of being something different? I can tell you why. It's because that is the most common way of bullying someone you don't like. Point out how he is different to justify YOUR actions. Which is it? Is he a Communist, Marxist, or Socialist? He cannot be all three. I have a feeling there is another difference behind the constant attacks.

Those words are used because they scare people. We've lived in a society with socialist programs for decades. It the same thing as when people want to compare people to hitler in some way. It's to over sensationalize the comparison to try to make people think said person is evil when in fact they aren't.

I know. It always says so MUCH MORE about the person making the accusations than it does the intended target.

You haven't raised any facts. You have reached more than the raiders do on draft day.

Actually, those are all verifiable facts.

I read this as Adam West and was really confused as to why Batman would be saying these things. Turns out I just can't read. Carry on.

One of the things I have realized from his postings on this board, Veggie does not care about facts.

Really?

REALLY?

Instead of saying....."who cares what Allen West says", you come up with this!!!

I was raised in a VERY religious household where my mother clearly is discriminate against gay people and their first language is Spanish and I went to school where it was cool to bully people that were "different".

Look how I turned up!

I'm a hardcore ATHEIST LIBERAL who wants gay marriage to be legal and I'm very Anti-religion, my first language is English and every issue with those around me are very much the opposite!

Just because you are raised a certain way does NOT mean you will become that.....I am a PERFECT EXAMPLE!

Being an anti-colonialist Kenyan this would make his father anti British not anti American. Not sure how being anti colonialist makes you a commie,if thats the case all your founding fathers would be raging commies.

Do you have anything to back these claims up?

Ahh, but it's by his own rule that he must provide at least 5 links supporting each claim. He makes me, so he should do the same. Until he clearly posts links to supporting, non-biased sources that back this up HERE, it's all opinion and speculation. It doesn't matter what we already know. EVERYTHING must be re-established in EVERY thread.

AUT's rule, not mine.

I will do that if you would honestly like me to. If you are just being difficult for difficulty's sake, then I won't.

I am never purposefully difficult with you, although you seemingly always take it that way. I am honestly seeking the truth on these issues. If you aren't willing to engage in a discussion where we can agree on the truths and assumptions underlying our arguments, there is no point.

False.

I am more than willing. Unfortunately I'm interrupted by someone who needs everything from the last 10 years restated in every conversation before he will allow genuine discussion. It makes it quite difficult when one person makes you restate everything he already knows every other time I post.
