Obama Web Site Urges 'Revolution' Against U.S. 'Oppressive' Regime.


Marxists, socialists and communists have created a safe space online to congregate, exchange ideas =96 including a stated revolution against the U.= S. "oppressive" regime =96 and support their favored presidential candidate. Their meeting spot? Sen.

"Eventually, the bourgeoisie controlled government will fail to keep the ever growing masses at bay, and the Revolution will occur," adds the posting.
