"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Actual socialists reject Obama

In typical fact-free conservative bloviation, the "socialist card" being played against Obama has no anchor in reality. At least no reality that actual socialists believe in.
John Bachtell, the Illinois organizer for Communist Party USA, sees attempts by Sen. John McCain's campaign to label Obama a socialist as both offensive to socialists and a desperate ploy to tap into fears of voters who haven't forgotten their Cold War rhetoric.
So the next time you hear some conservative blathering on about how Obama is a socialist, you can explain that you know he's not a socialist because you've never seen him at the meetings.
