“How Obama became the first communist president” — Don Surber Explains It All to You

Don Surber has been right about Trump long before it became fashionable to be right about Trump. He’s been kicking ass and taking names and all out of bubblegum since 2015. He continues this sweep today with a non-nostalgic look back at how we got to the point where we might have to, in William Burroughs’ words, “Shoot our way to freedom.”


The use of the state to spy on and infiltrate the campaign of a political opponent is the final proof of the truth that we have averted our eyes from for the last 14 years.

Barack Obama is a communist. Mild compared to Castro or Mao, but nevertheless a believer in state control of everything.

Electing a communist president was easy, although it took more than seven decades. While the steps were many — Stalin’s Soviet Union collapsed before achieving his goal — the major ones are obvious in hindsight.

The quest began after Stalin stole America’s nuclear bomb secrets. Roy Cohn prosecuted Stalin’s spies. We hanged them.

Stalin got revenge. He placed a big fat target on Cohn, who went to Washington to help Senator Joseph McCarthy ferret communists out of the Army and State Department.

Many people confuse this with the House UnAmerican Activities Committee, which examined communism in Hollywood. Much ridiculed in the press (even conservatives mocked HUAC) look at Hollywood today and try to deny that communism lives on in America’s entertainment industry.

The elitists ripped McCarthy, called his quest for the truth a witch hunt, and made his name synonymous with the type of investigative fishing expedition Bobby Mueller has engaged in.

The net result was you no longer could call anyone a communist in America. Not even an actual communist. We call them liberal, progressive, socialist, and even Marxist, but never in polite society may we call them communists.

The downfall of McCarthy protected the communists in our federal government. We put one — John Brennan — as head of our CIA.

Various Lyndon Johnson changes weakened state governments. Medicaid, which pays for health care for the poor, consumes 15% or so of state budgets. This has driven states to adopt gambling, state sales taxes, state income taxes, and more in an effort to pay the state’s share

The Voting Rights Act of 1965 forced states to gerrymander along racial lines, a clear violation of the 14th Amendment. Johnson was too clever by half as states herded black voters into black electoral ghettos. This made it easier for Republicans to eventually regain control of the House.

The takeover of the academic world was a natural. Smart people are easy to fool. Just stroke their egos and tell them how smart they are….

    The election of Salvador Allende in 1973 was proof of concept: you didn’t need a revolution to put a communist into office.

    Good on ya, Don! Obamunism was a filthy mess.

    The Obama administration was full of red diaper babies who never took off the diapers and who wear them proudly to this day. Anyone remember the Cabinet member who said whenever she felt frustrated or depressed she reread Chairman Mao’s Little Red Book? Or Obama’s principal White House adviser who was born in Iran to American communist parents? Or how the Obama administration was and still is behind the attempt to overthrow the legal government of the United States? And now our colleges and universities are handing out diplomas to tens of thousands of little Stalin grads. As my mom used to say, don’t get me started.

    That was me commenting as anony mouse. Why, I have no idea.

    “Obamunism was a filthy mess.”

    Still is.

    Denouncing a commie puke is easy. Watch me.
    B. Hussein Obama (nee Soetero) is a communist puke. And so is his husband Michael. See?
    The hard piece of the puzzle is unclenching the minds of females and gelding males from the provably destructive philosophy and actions so happily popularized by sympathetic commie pukes in popular culture. To do so requires hard language and an adult masculine stance for what is right against what is wrong.
    There is so much estrogen in the drinking water that to find such adult men you have to filter away the yammering screeches coming from 30 year-old children. Can be done, but it is not pretty.

    Dan: true dat. I am forced by business to travel and stay a week first in Seattle, then LA. Not looking forward to the social interaction parts. Probably won’t wear my MAGA hat.

    Will have a set of pithy one-liners at hand to deflect the pukish bullshit I am sure to hear in these communist enclaves.


  • Dan Patterson May 21, 2018, 10:46 AM

    Anonymous (if that’s really your name), yes I have a few.
    Comebacks to commie pukes:
    -The facts do not support your position
    -There are no examples of successful communism; none
    -If you value human life you are a capitalist
    -If you value tyranny you are a communist
    -Take a dozen of your kommie associates and start your own socialist group; and you cannot use money. Get back to me in six months
    -Marx and Lennin had diseased minds
    -Workers (employees) already own the means of production: shareholders
    -Socialism is for sissy boys and angry girls

    Thanks for the pointer, rlc2.

    Miss Diana & I used to fear a dictatorial, communist, tyrannical Governmental takeover . . . until we got these chips in our brains. Life is better now.

  • Snakepit Kansas May 21, 2018, 5:49 PM


    I will be in the Seattle area the next few days starting tomorrow. Don’t worry about wit and comebacks, most of those folks are beyond help. Wear your MAGA hat proudly.

    Beautiful area and the local wine and beer are very good. Take it for what it offers at face value.
