Obama’s first college speech was sponsored by Marxist elements. And he praised that speech while in Africa.
Barack Obama spoke this afternoon at the University of Cape Town. He told the African students about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College. Obama said he was glad there was no tape of this speech.
But, Barack forgot to mention that speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists.
Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event sponsored by theStudents for Economic Democracy a branch of the Campaign for Economic Democracy [CED]. Far Left radical Tom Hayden who met with Marxist officials several times during his antiwar career chaired this fringe group in the late 70′s and early ’80′s. Several of the CED principal activists were also veterans of the Hayden-campaign and of the very radical group,Students for a Democratic Society.
Hayden was an important anti-American figure in the Students for a Democratic-Society a militantly leftist organization. 60′s radical Tom Hayden played a pivotal role both as founder and as principal author of this student group’s basic manifesto, the “Port Huron Statement.” This document condemned the American political system as the cause of international conflict and a variety of social ills — including racism, materialism, militarism, and poverty.
Barack Obama does not include his time at Occidental College on his resume but old friends and former teachers remember his role in protesting college investments in firms doing business in South Africa during the apartheid era.
