Cons: How can Obama be both a Marxist and a Muslim at the same time?
Topic: Cons: How can Obama be both a Marxist and a Muslim at the same time?
June 26, 2019 / By Amey Question:
The simple definition of a Marxist, is one who shares the philosophical, and socio-politico-economic philosophy of Karl Marx.
Socialism is only one aspect of Marxism.
Another aspect of Marxism is anti-religion. Karl Marx believed that religion was designed by the powers-that-be to keep the underclass controlled. Marx believed that the abolition of religion, along with the rise of Communism, would lead to a societal utopia.
So, how can one be anti-religious and a Muslim at the same time? Given that Cons have accused him of both being a Muslim and a Marxist.
Just Stin: You're not that bright - Marx's desire to abolish religion in itself is not "religious" - that would fall under "philosophical" and "socio", since his philosophy suggests that religion controls masses & society.

How would they know; most only listen to talking points and catch phrases of their opponents; rather its true definition. Over the last couple of years, starting with the 2008 Presidential Election such words were utilized to create an illusion, and to damage or curtail Obama's abilities. Yet the very individuals who yell and misspell such slogans on their protest signs, have no true comprehension. Truly its the tale of two cities; two camps, and only one has the truth; the twisted insults to fill the void of critical thinking.

Conservatives call Obama a Marxist because they disagree with his policies.
In the childish game of American politics, Liberals and Conservatives try to demonize their opponents by calling them names.
That's why Liberals often refer to Conservatives as Fascists.
No mainstream conservative has accused Obama of being a muslim.
He is, however, a socialist...

He's neither a Marxist nor a Muslim. He's a professed Christian and is conducting wars of varying intensities against six different majority-Muslim countries, and enabling dictators and apartheid states that oppress Muslims in others. On the "Marxism" side, he's a long-time friend of the financial industry and legislated to protect both Wall Street and the juggernaut private health insurance companies. He's presiding over an increase in economic inequality and he's fighting against labor unions, including by ensuring that Congress doesn't pass the Employee Free Choice Act fully intact (i.e. with the card check provision). There is nothing Marxist or Muslim about President Obama, he's a firm center-right President, a nationalist warmonger, and a professed and at least somewhat-practicing Christian.
Also, there is no such thing as an "Islamic fascist" or "Islamofascism". This is a neologism invented by far-right Islamophobes in the West to smear democratic Islamic movements like the Muslim Brotherhood and lump them in with Salafi militant groups like Al Qa'ida and other strict Sunni militant groups with political goals like the Taliban.

Adam Smith, "Wealth of Nations"
Well golly, was Adam Smith a Marxist? I think he wasn't and yes, I side with Adam Smith and Barack Obama on this issue. You can go on about your Karl Marx or whatever... I don't believe you.
Edit: lol @ Ravenwolf... might as well trade some campaign hyperbole, right?
