Excerpts: The account of meeting young Obama by John C. Drew, Ph.D. an award-winning political scientist and a blogger at David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog who earned his Ph.D. from Cornell and has taught political science and economics at Williams College. Today, Dr. Drew makes his living as an author, trainer, and consultant in the field of non-profit grant writing, fund raising and program evaluation.

(The article is rather lengthy - so as not to infringe on copyrights only a few excerpts and quotations are listed here. Please visit this link for the rest of the article)


I met Obama in December of 1980, a couple of days after Christmas, in Portola Valley -- a small town near Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA. I was a 23 year old second-year graduate student in Cornell's Government Department, and had flown to California to visit a 21 year old girlfriend, Caroline Boss. Boss was a senior at Occidental College, where she had taken a class in the fall of 1980 with political theorist Roger Boesche. She met and befriended Obama in that class.
My first meeting with young Barack Obama raised strong feelings and left me with a positive first impression. At the time, I felt I'd persuaded a young man anticipating a Marxist-Leninist revolution to appreciate the more practical alternative of conventional politics as a channel for his socialist views.

When I first saw Obama, I remember I was standing on the porch of Boss's parents' impressive home as a sleek, expensive luxury car pulled up the driveway. Two young men emerged from the vehicle. They were well-dressed and looked like they were born to wealth and privilege. I was a little surprised to learn they were Boss's friends from Occidental College until she articulated the underlying0 political connection. "They're on our side," she said.

My graduate studies that fall had tempered my earlier Marxism with a more realistic perspective. I thought a revolution was not in the cards anymore. There was no inevitability, in my mind, to the old idea that the proletariat would rise up and overthrow the ruling classes. Now, the idea that we could entirely eliminate the profit motive from an advanced industrialized economy seemed like a childhood fantasy. The future, I now thought, would belong to nations with mixed economic systems -- like those in Europe -- where there was government planning of the economy combined with a greater effort to produce a more equitable distribution of wealth. It made more sense to me to focus on elections rather than on preparing for a coming revolution.

Boss and Obama, however, had a starkly different view. They believed that the economic stresses of the Carter years meant revolution was still imminent. The election of Reagan was simply a minor set-back in terms of the coming revolution. As I recall, Obama repeatedly used the phrase "When the revolution comes...." In my mind, I remember thinking that Obama was blindly sticking to the simple Marxist theory that had characterized my own views while I was an undergraduate at Occidental College. "There's going to be a revolution," Obama said, "we need to be organized and grow the movement." In Obama's view, our role must be to educate others so that we might usher in more quickly this inevitable revolution.

I know this may be implausible to some readers, but I distinctly remember Obama surprising me by bringing up Frantz Fanon and colonialism. He impressed me with his knowledge of these two topics, topics which were not among my strong points -- or of overwhelming concern to me. Boss and Obama seemed to think their ideological purity was a persuasive argument in predicting that a coming revolution would end capitalism. While I felt I was doing them a favor by providing them with the latest research, I saw I was in danger of being cast as a reactionary who did not grasp the nuances of international Marxist theory.

    Obie fundamentally detests the American Constitution and would change it if he could. Since he can't change it, he ignores it. Given a second term he will turn America into socialist Europe complete with bankruptcy.

    A quote from the article, At that time, the future president was a doctrinaire Marxist revolutionary, although perhaps -- for the first time -- considering conventional politics as a more practical road to socialism." Obama always associated with questionable people and the real crime is the the leftist propaganda media and Fox--Refuse to make this truth known to the people when if this was George Bush or Mitt Romney that associated or even ever talked to the KKK the association would come out!

    So you dig up an ideology that a professor was a 'Marxist' who came into contact with Obama, there's no evidence that Mr Drew's anecdotal evidence from 20 years ago is true and it certainly wouldn't stand up in a court of law in regards to what he thinks Obama said.



    This kind of attention is what he was looking for from people obsessed with the Marxist brand on Obama by nutjobs who have no clue what they're talking about.



    Obama is centrist, at worst he's centre-left...



    That is so far removed from Marxism it's untrue, yet again we have anecdotal evidence that some guy Obama met was a Marxist so Obama must be because all those Marxists hang out together.



    A teacher at a school's a paedophile, therefore anyone he ever taught is a paedophile...



    That is the crazy logic you are applying to this, it's farcical.

    Sidenote - Any moron who posts another 'HES DESTROYING AMERICA WITH HIS MARXISM' or any other nonsense, I say back up your prophecy and you clearly have no comprehension of a democracy.

    In a 'democracy' you tend to have a little thing called checks and balances to make sure the executive can't simply apply his ideology, It's kind of an important consideration when you compare America to somewhere like China.

    What a unique article. Two names from obama's past is quite a revelation. Up to now, I actually believed he was cloned and raised in Area 51. It's still quite amazing that a man 49 yrs old doesn't seem to have any friends from his past. Well, at least none who will admit it.

    Obama has passed the supreme test of a silent, revolutionary monster: On queue from Rick Warren, he directly stated that he is a Christian who places his faith in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. What normally would cause every two-bit Marxist hack in America to cringe in disgust was instead met with glee: "He's in."

    The black community is still largely unaware of the threat he represents to their well-being, even though the ANC in South Africa painted the broad picture: they spent the decade prior to the fall of Apartheid liquidating moderate blacks. What they wanted, and achieved, was to have no power rivals once Apartheid was gone. It did not matter then or now that they murdered more blacks than the whites did.
