Nobody does it better than Boortz

Over the weekend we learned that the Obama campaign has settled on a slogan for the 2012 campaign. It was one word …. Forward. Was it focus groups at work here? Did campaign officials discover that people like that word. Everyone wants to move forward, right? You don’t want to move backwards, do you? Well …. If you’re standing at the edge of a cliff, forward is the last direction you want to go. Financially … we’re at the edge of that cliff.
There’s another explanation for the word though. “Forward” has long been associated with the socialist and communist movement --- dating back to 1844. I absolutely and completely believe that Obama is a Marxist – so why not the name of a publication Marx and Engels published that year in Paris?
So yesterday I gave you a laundry list of different political philosophers, publications and propaganda that all used the phrase “forward” to embody and promote their socialist or communist causes. Considering the historical use of the word “forward,” it is no surprise that our Marxist in Chief would select this phrase as his new campaign slogan. But one of the many examples I referenced was a Wikipedia entry under “Forward” that Cristina found entitled “Forward (generic name of socialist publications).” Yesterday morning if you went to this link you found a long history of socialist and communist publications published in many languages, principally German, Russian and French, using that name as their title. That Wikipedia entry began with this:
The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other leftwing newspapers and publications, denoting an urge for progress.
By yesterday afternoon Obama sycophants and myrmidons were busy. They were demanding that Wikipedia remove that reference to the word “forward” being a generic name of socialist publications. Toward the middle of the afternoon if you clicked on that link it would say “This article is being considered for deletion in accordance with Wikipedia's deletion policy.” By the end of the day, if you searched the word “Forward” in Wikipedia, the link to that entry had been removed from the website. Instead, now a section labeled “Publications” has appeared, listing some of the various examples. Here’s the original Wikipedia search. We’ve cached it. If you click on it here’s what you see:


This morning, here’s what you see:


The reference to “generic name of socialist publications” is gone. The little excerpt I included above … gone. You certainly don’t want that in the same listing as “Obama-Biden Campaign Slogan.” But wait! What about that reference to “Forward” being the slogan of the Obama campaign? Well click on it. Here’s what you’ll find:

Yes ma’am. Now the Obama supporters are trying to have the reference to their campaign moved away --- eliminated, in fact --- from any proximity to that reference to socialist publications.
Let’s watch this folks. Clearly Obama has an official or unofficial Wikipedia team ready to cleanse postings that might not play well with voters still on the edge. Control the message. Always control the message.
