“FORWARD”, That’s it? That’s President Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign slogan? What a far cry from “Hope & Change”. Then again, we all know how that worked out for America.
So why “FORWARD” as the reelection campaign slogan? I guess it should come as a surprise to no one that the slogan “FORWARD” is a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism. Go figure. The Obama reelection team had pondered long and hard to come up with a slogan for 2012 so who honestly thinks that it is a coincidence that they came up with one that has ties to socialist and Marxist roots? Pretty much no one with a clue.
The Obama campaign apparently didn’t look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, “Forward” — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.
Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name “Forward!” or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called “Forward (generic name of socialist publications).”
“The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications,” the online encyclopedia explains.
The slogan “Forward!” reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

The Obama campaign’s new re-election slogan for 2012 is “Forward.” It’s related to MSNBC’s “Lean Forward,” and, of course, to Mao Zedong’s “Great Leap Forward,” which had the opposite result.
The seven-minute video accompanying the release of the new slogan revisits the familiar argument that Barack Obama inherited a mess–and that he is responsible for signs of progress in the economy. We can go forward–or give up all of that progress (such as it is) by putting a Republican back in the White House.
