How ‘special’: Right wing sites claim Obama’s slogan “Forward” has Marxist, Nazi, Socialist meaning

May 1, 2012

This is ‘special’ (in that extremely desperate kind of way). Right wing sites have thrown Godwin’s Law in our faces, which is delicious, since they have nothing else to go with apparently: “The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications,” the online encyclopedia explains.” adding “The slogan “Forward!” reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.” the Washington Times writes with a huge partisan pen. “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”, so states the Gateway Pundit. The Daily Paul and a host of others are running with this strategy (and I use that term loosely).

 

Just for fun; the title of an article today on FoxBusiness.com is, “Judge Allows Strauss-Kahn Lawsuit to Move Forward.” Those Marxists! There is a website called ‘the Jewish Daily Forward‘. OMFG, Jewish Nazis! Who knew?

This is all quite funny considering the origin of the word, “pundit“: 1670s, “learned Hindu,” especially one versed in Sanskrit lore, from Hindi payndit “a learned man, master, teacher,” from Skt. payndita-s “a learned man, scholar,” of unknown origin. Broader application in Eng. is first recorded 1816.”

Yoda would say, A teacher, they are not at Gateway Pundit. I don’t want to school such an advanced teacher as the ‘pundit’ at Gateway but the definition of the word “forward” is, “toward or at a place, point, or time in advance; onward; ahead: to move forward; from this day forward; to look forward.” Anyone that uses said word, is not a Marxist-Socialist-Commie-Nazi. For example, when soldiers are told to, ‘Forward march!’ they are not told to go straight to Marxist hell.

So, should we then scrutinize the etymology (not that they bothered to peruse the origin of “forward” but just compared it to every evil person that’s ever used it.) of words politicians use, since debating on policies is not in the Republican mindset? That would stink of desperation and we have real issues to bring up over Mitt (R-Bain) Romney’s dubious past in business. By the way, where are those tax returns?

Forward may have meant something else to Republicans who have Marxism on their minds, but nothing is further from the truth with President Obama’s political leanings — now about Romney’s problematic areas (see how deflection didn’t work?):

 

I can honestly say that the right wing sites fucked up big time, in that fucked up funny special way they do so very much:

“Verbal phrase fuck up “to ruin, spoil, destroy” first attested c.1916. A widespread group of Slavic words (cf. Pol. pierdoli?) can mean both “fornicate” and “make a mistake.” Fuck off attested from 1929; as a command to depart, by 1944. Flying fuck originally meant “have sex on horseback” and is first attested c.1800 in broadside ballad “New Feats of Horsemanship.” For the unkillable urban legend that this word is an acronym of some sort (a fiction traceable on the Internet to 1995 but probably predating that) see here, and also here. Related: Fucked; fucking. Agent noun fucker attested from 1590s in literal sense; by 1893 as a term of abuse (or admiration).”

    Obama sound sincere in his speech yet he has a poetic way of speaking that has away of pulling you as his words sound of compassion. I believe that bills that he had secretly passed and was hidden by the media prevents me from trusting him. A friend, leader, or president of the US, to me, should have been very open and we the people should have been educated in what was in the NDAA. If Obama is so concerned about the American people then why did he not use 1 of the trillion dollars to help the smaller companies that closed and moved on. Instead he felt the need for other countries over own needs. Question these motives? Most of you probably don’t know what a trillion dollars looks like? Here is a small video that explains what a trillion dollars looks like. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFP-2_iDYMU&feature=related

    There is no question that our government is corrupt. It didn’t get that way overnight and both sides are to blame. Common sense, ethics, and morality are all gone in our society today. I am interested by this website because it uses the exact same rhetoric as the conservative ones. There are very few facts; just blah, blah, blah smoke and mirrors. The fact is, the word forward has historically been used by Marxists, Communists, and the good Hitler. To ignore such historical fact is irresponsible. Now, is Obama using this word in the same context? His own words and actions say yes. Have you read his autobiography? Have you read “The Amateur” by Ed Klein? Did you do any research at all into Obama’s activities prior to becoming president? Did you know he not only was a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, he frequently gave speeches at their meetings? I appreciate your slogan, “If we don’t speak up, we are part of the problem.” However, the problem I see is lack of education, research, homework and just more finger-pointing, name-calling, hate-mongering, cussing for the reaction rather than for a specific point. This article has zero facts. It only has more of the same old, same old. It could have been written by a conservative with the opposite view and it would have the same value – zip. When you have done your homework and write an intelligent article with real information, I will be more than happy to visit your site again. BTW, dig deep. You won’t find anything resembling the truth at websites such as this. And, yes, I can substantiate and provide specific data for everything I’ve said. No, I’m not going to provide that. I’m tired of people too lazy to do their own research. While you won’t believe me, you might believe it when you find out for yourself.

    “By their fruits you shall know them”.
    “Actions speak louder than words”
    “If you lie with pigs, you’re bound to get dirty”
    “birds of a feather flock together”
    Need I go on – Obama has been raised with a different ideology (Marxist/Socialist) than what the USA Constitution and Founding Fathers established. His teachers, friends and co-workers, and STRATEGISTS are all about pushing FORWARD, the HOPE and CHANGE that Obama has pushed America towards for the past 3.5yrs. It’s not working and it’s not a small-gov’t, free enterprise, capitalist system that Obama supports – but rather the opposite… I’m glad some people are able to connect the dots and call out what the underlying message relates to.

    You can say what you want, but the word, “forward,” was definitely used by Marxists whether you like it or not.

    Funny, the people who DO act like Nazis, pick up on an everyday word used by people all of the time to mean moving on and progress; and make it something sinister! Seems like the Right Wing knows an awful lot about Nazi history! They always seem to accuse others of their own crimes! That way they feel they can stop others from accusing them of their OBVIOUS usage of the Nazi playbook! They figure if they say it long enough, and loud enough about others, people will tune out when it comes to people talking about those who really follow Nazi procedure: THE RIGHT WING REPUBLICANS!

      NAZI: a member of the National Socialist German Workers’ party of Germany, which in 1933, under Adolf Hitler, seized political control of the country, suppressing all opposition and establishing a dictatorship over all cultural, economic, and political activities of the people, and promulgated belief in the supremacy of Hitler as Führer, aggressive anti-Semitism, the natural supremacy of the German people, and the establishment of Germany by superior force as a dominant world power. The party was officially abolished in 1945 at the conclusion of World War II.

      Hitler, whom history classifies as a Fascist, seized and upheld Nazism; sounds more like Obama to me then any far “right wing Republican”

      History also shows this every day and very common word “forward” was constantly used as a propaganda epithet to endorse and differentiate between those evil capitalists and socialists. So when read citizens would know the references to forward was Marxist and/or socialist.

        Please explain how Obama (black guy) is a Nazi??…Where was your “outrage” under previous Admin??..in case you didn’t know ..here’s what that “democracy” did..you know “THE PATRIOT ACT”..again, your selective outrage is noted…moron..

        Following are examples of freedoms which President Bush and his fellow Republicans in Congress have already expunged (as reported by the Associated Press): FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION: Government may monitor religious and political institutions without suspecting criminal activity to assist terror investigations. FREEDOM OF INFORMATION: Government has closed once-public immigration hearings, has secretly detained hundreds of people without charges, and has encouraged bureaucrats to resist public records questions. FREEDOM OF SPEECH: Government may prosecute librarians or keepers of any other records if they tell anyone that the government subpoenaed information related to a terror investigation. RIGHT TO LEGAL REPRESENTATION: Government may monitor federal prison jailhouse conversations between attorneys and clients, and deny lawyers to Americans accused of crimes. FREEDOM FROM UNREASONABLE SEARCHES: Government may search and seize Americans’ papers and effects without probable cause to assist terror investigation. RIGHT TO A SPEEDY AND PUBLIC TRIAL: Government may jail Americans indefinitely without a trial. RIGHT TO LIBERTY: Americans may be jailed without being charged or being able to confront witnesses against them. These rights have already been lost! Whether individual Americans have been personally subjected to the resultant tyranny or not doesn’t change the fact that they have already lost these freedoms! This fact, alone, should be enough for any studious lover-of-liberty to be outraged.

    “Forward may have meant something else to Republicans who have Marxism on their minds, but nothing is further from the truth with President Obama’s political leanings…” Are you kidding? Apparently, you haven’t read “Dreams From My Father,” in which Obama writes explicitly about his Marxist leanings in his formative and college years.

    LOL! You’re a dumb ass and ignorant of history to boot.

    Now you can get back to goose-stepping with the Obama campaign.

      Yeah FIDEL? What was Pres. Obama waiting for? He has done nothing to back your idiotic remark! Go collect your .50 cents from the GOP, TROLL!

      • Ddiribbons

        Oh yeah? Look at all his Marxist friends: Bill Ayers, Frank Marshall Davis, his father, Vann Jones, chummy with his Marxist college groups and Marxist professors. If you cannot connect the dots, then you are hopeless.

        • Cdmhorses

          Poor thing, Haviva, bless his/her heart, he/she is a Marxist obviously. This is where his/her beliefs are beholden. Anyone who supports what this president and his administration is doing MUST agree with his Marxist/Socialist agenda.
