Dear Friend of America's Survival,
Watching Maryland football crush Rutgers today on Big Ten TV I was forced to watch a Rutgers commercial honoring Soviet stooge Paul Robeson and the Rutgers Paul Robeson Cultural Center (PRCC). Watch it here.
What a disgrace. Paul Robeson was a communist and disciple of the old Soviet Union. Robeson made common cause with the greatest killing machine of the 20th century. Robeson had been identified as a member of the CPUSA by Manning Johnson, a CPUSA member, in testimony to the House Committee on Un-American Activities in 1949.
Obama's Communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a close friend of communists Paul Robeson and Harry Bridges. He knew Bridges and Robeson and says that Robeson urged him to go to Hawaii, where he became Obama's mentor and father figure.
The Rutgers' website makes no mention of Robeson's service to the Soviet Union. Instead, it makes these misleading claims:
Rep. John Lewis wrote a 1965 Freedomways article, “Paul Robeson: Inspirer of Youth,” about the famous actor and singer who had been a member of the CPUSA and admirer of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.
In one of his more controversial statements, Robeson said that “American Negroes would never go to war against Russia,” because blacks loved Russia so much.
Askia Muhammad, a black journalist who contributes to Louis Farrakhan’s Final Call newspaper, wrote a fascinating article, From Paul Robeson to Barack Obama, comparing the Illinois Senator to the pro-Soviet actor and singer who had been a secret member of the CPUSA. Muhammad wrote:
There are similarities in the educational backgrounds of Obama and Paul Robeson, the athlete, actor, singer, and lawyer who couldn’t practice law because of racism. Mr. Robeson was our 20th century Renaissance man. He was a peace activist. He was a protestor. Obama, on the other hand, has absolutely rewritten the racial script in America.
Did Obama conceal his communist connections in the same way Robeson had?
In a letter to the People’s Weekly World after Obama’s win in the Iowa Democratic Party caucuses in 2008, Chapman wrote that "Obama’s victory was more than a progressive move; it was a dialectical leap ushering in a qualitatively new era of struggle. Marx once compared revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface. This is the old revolutionary ‘mole,’ not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through."
