It never cease to amaze me that one candidate can be surrounded with SO much controversy, much of it easily proven, a matter of record. Yet it also never cease to amaze me how SO much could be shielded from the voters. There is an unprecendented mass media BLACKOUT on this sort of NEWS.
Reason is simple, believe it or not, leftists & socialists have crept in or taken over the helm of much of mainstream Media. A woman answering telephones for the Obama campaign said she could not comment on the following expose.
In article & expose below, progressive is a term that means left of center, even socialists. It sounds COOL.
One of the main founders of the Weathermen terrorist organization is a signatory to an independent organization acting to ensure the election of Sen. Barack Obama, WND has learned.
The group in question, Progressives for Obama, also includes among its ranks many former members of the 1960s radical organization Students for a Democratic Society, from which the Weathermen splintered, as well as current and former members of other radical organizations, such as the Communist Party USA and the Black Radical Congress.
Among the signatories and endorsers to Progressives for Obama is Mark Rudd, one of the main founders of the Weathermen terrorist organization. Rudd worked closely for years with Weathermen terrorist William Ayers, whose association with Obama has generated controversy for the presidential candidate.
Rudd originally was a top member of the Students for a Democratic Society, or SDS, leading the famed 1968 Columbia University strikes in which hundreds of students seized several university buildings. The Weathermen took responsibility for bombing U.S. governmental buildings in the 1970s.
The group was founded by four individuals with ties to extremist groups:
* Tom Hayden, a former state senator who was a founder and principal organizer of the SDS. Discover the Networks notes Hayden, previously married to actress Jane Fonda, traveled many times to North Vietnam, Czechoslovakia and Paris to strategize with communist North Vietnamese and Viet Cong leaders on how to defeat America's anti-communist efforts.
* Bill Fletcher, a former Maoist and current leader of Democratic Socialists of America or DSA. The New Zeal blog notes Fletcher was also a founder of the Black Radical Congress, closely linked to the Communist Party USA,
Actor Danny Glover, a member of the Black Students Union, who has visited Venezuela, making guest appearances on President Hugo Chavez's television and radio talk show.
