Barack Obama Targeted by Extremists on the Internet
Obama's alleged ties to radicals and extremists
Posted: June 23, 2008
Other white supremacists have posted articles and comments on their Websites stating that Obama has ties to Communists, terrorists and other radicals or that his former church was involved in murdering congregants.
Painting Obama as a Communist
In an October 2008 post to Stormfront, "aryanchrist" argued that Obama and the Democrats are "Commies," He explained, "Wake up America! The Communist conspiracy within still exists. Barack Obama and the rest of the Democrats are total Commies. Time to face the music!!!! Protect yourselves and get your money out of the bank as soon as you can if this **** eating Commie gets elected!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
The same month on Stormfront, "Hispanic001" alleged that the "communist party of this country created a doccument [sic] of support of the obama's campaign." In the same post, he referenced a "militia of 500,000 neegers that he (Obama) want [sic] to create" and went on to explain, "I can imagine that bunch of negros dressed of civilian clothes killing whites during riots of white people in the streets."
In a September 2008 post to Stormfront, an individual using the name "british74" asserted that "Obama has a 30 year history of associating with unsavory characters, beginning with communist Frank Marshall Davis and continuing with Jeremiah Wright and communist terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, which should disqualify him from getting a security clearance in the government that he wants to run......."
Another post to Stormfront, made in August 2008 by "Ravening Wolf," alleged the existence of "Obama's drug use, communist tendencies, Muslim background, and closet black supremacism!!!"
Claiming Obama has ties to murderers and racists
The Website of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CofCC), a white supremacist organization, posted a May 2008 article containing totally unsubstantiated information claiming that Obama's former church has carried out murders. The article by the CofCC News Team says that Obama's "militant 'Black Liberation Theology' church" is connected to the "execution style" murder of three "openly gay" parishioners. Another longtime white supremacist, Tom Metzger, wrote in an April 2008 "journal" entry, "Obama favours [sic] an unholly [sic] alliance between Marxism and Islam."
On his Website, David Duke posted an article in April 2008, entitled "Barack Hussein Obama's ties with unrepentant communist, terrorists!" In February 2008, Duke authored another article entitled "Why I oppose Obama as President of the United States," in which he stated that Obama's wife is a "Black racist and dedicated Black separatist":
Compelling evidence shows that Barack Obama is an Afro-American whose ultimate loyalty is not to 'all the people of the United States,' but primarily to his fellow African-Americans….Few Americans are even aware yet of this side of Obama. Here is quick rundown of the undisputed facts: Barack Obama is an active member of an extremist, Afro-Centrist Black church in Chicago and is admittedly very close to its Afro-centrist and unarguably (by media standards) racist pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr….In addition to his very close relationship with Rev. Wright, Obama also has a long and warm friendship with Louis Farrakhan, who is also unashamedly a Black nationalist and Afro-centrist….there is another Black racist, and dedicated Black separatist that Obama shares an even closer relationship: his wife Michelle Obama.
It is likely that extremists, particularly white supremacists, will become even more vehement in their attacks on Obama as the election draws closer.
