A while back I was going through some old internet archives browsing through BO’s past. Because there is so much information I’ve chosen to post smaller blocks of information as opposed to one large article. Here’s the first in the series of archives I’ve uncovered.
Below I’ve posted excerpts from the websites as it relates to Obama.
Having no clue what the letters “NP” and “DSA” meant they kept popping up in the 1990’s archives. The words “grassroots,” “progressive” and other key terms that I’ve become familiar with in this political environment are used through the archived articles I stumbled onto.
Since first reading the articles I’ve found out what NP and DSA mean.
NP stands for “New Party.” DSA stands for Democratic Socialists of America. They both seem to be connected although DSA currently denies it. As a footnote there is a youth section of DSA called Young Democratic Socialists. Not only did I not realize there was a socialist group to indoctrinate children, neither did I know how active it is.
I also stumbled across a list of DSA members running our country only to be shocked to see some familiar names that are currently in high profile government positions.
According to former Naval Intelligence Officer Marion Valentine as reported in a Canada Free Press article dated Oct. 16, 2008: “I found Frank Marshall Davis, who had fled from Chicago to Hawaii when Obama was 12 years old, was Obama’s mentor from then till Davis died in 1987.
“Davis put Obama in touch with the Socialist Party in Chicago (called the New Party) which Ayers is also a member of, (emphasis added) therefore the first “Planned” contact with Ayers. The New Party helped launch and finance Obama’s political career. Obama…selected, trained, groomed and scripted to become the “puppet” leader of the United Socialist States of America.”
In 1950 Frank Marshall Davis was investigated by the House Un-American Activities Committee for his links with the Communist Party USA in the United States
From The Columbus Free Press — New Party Online News – Elections Update (archive):
“Our task, and there are no shortcuts, is to build enough power to produce better choices in the future.
Overall: Campaign finance led the way, with overwhelming victories in Arkansas and Massachusetts. Not counting Washington, DC’s ANC races, NP members and supported candidates won 16 of 23 races, bringing our overall total to 110 victories in 163 races.
Illinois: The first NP member heads to Congress, as Danny Davis wins an overwhelming 85% victory yesterday (he got a higher percentage of the vote in that district than the President). NP member and State Senate candidate Barack Obama won uncontested. Interestingly, it appears that the local Democratic machine is trying to distance itself from our folks. At a “Democratic Unity” march on Chicago’s West Side, a flyer invited community members to join with a host of local democratic candidates. The only two west-side Democrats not listed: NP members Danny Davis (U.S. House candidate) and Michael Chandler (Alderman and Ward Committeeman).”
From the NewParty.Org Winter 1996 update: “Chicago Campaigns —The Illinois New Party is working intensively on Willie Delgado’s state representative campaign. Delgado is part of an emerging Latino network in Chicago. We’re also backing Danny Davis in a Congressional race, Barack Obama for state representative, and judicial candidate Patricia Martin. In addition to the electoral work, the NP in Chicago is supporting a local living wage campaign and an effort to prevent the placement of a waste site on the West Side”
