    Shocking! not...


    'The Obama campaign apparently didn't look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, "Forward" — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.

    Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name "Forward!" or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called "Forward (generic name of socialist publications)."

    "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.'

    The left owns the word forward? Guess that means conservatives own the word backward, sounds about right.

    It's interesting when you get into how Obama is portrayed in posters.

    Yes, Forward is a left/Marxist slogan. The Yiddish paper Der Forverts was originally a socialist/communist paper.

    Nothing is an accident and nothing is overlooked when it comes to campaign slogans.
    They knew the history and it was put forth as their message.
