It’s not entirely accurate to call Barack Hussein Obama a Marxist. More precisely, he is a Leninist, as Michael Savage explains:
“Lenin thought that a nation could only grow more prosperous when a nation is controlled by a vanguard and elite — a people who know better than you what to do with your property. The Leninist elite would lead people to a world free of pain and poverty. There would be no more haves and have-nots or private property. Just boundless prosperity. All a nation had to do was transfer its entire wealth to Lenin’s vanguard.”
This is why the correct term for the political philosophy embodied by Obama is not communism but oligarchical collectivism, which encompasses communism as it is actually practiced, as well as fascism and progressivism. Under pure Marxism, the Moonbat Messiah wouldn’t be hosting extravagant birthday bashes.
As Obama’s Leninist strain of oligarchical collectivism tightens its grip around America’s throat,
“America’s rich will be poorer, America’s poor will be poorer, America’s middle class will be wiped out,” Savage said. “But America’s government will be more powerful than ever, as will the elected officials and their corrupt bureaucrats.”
Obama can’t take wealth from the rich at gunpoint, as Lenin did in Russia, Savage said, “so he has to use taxation and regulation.”
This will only work until it sinks in that by “the rich” they mean us, and we start putting up resistance. Then our soft tyranny will either be overthrown, or will become a hard one like the Soviet Union.
