Allen West Calls Obama’s ‘Forward’ Campaign Slogan “Marxist-Socialist”

by Javier Manjarres

During the Republican Jewish Coalition rally in Boca Raton, Florida, Congressman Allen West sported an “Obama…Oy Vey” button and slammed President Obama’s ‘Forward’ campaign slogan by calling it a “Marxist-Socialist theme” used at the turn of the 20th century by the Soviet Union.

West just being West, and calling a Spade a Spade.

Vladimir Lenin founded the publication “Vpered” (the Russian word for “forward”) in 1905. Soviet propaganda film-maker Dziga Vertov made a documentary whose title is sometimes translated as “Forward, Soviet” (though also and more literally as “Stride, Soviet”). (SourceAll American Blogger)
