I don't see anything convincing from the pictures of the ring, offhand they look of some traditional African design I would guess. If the ring is made of gold, it is not Muslim by definition as Muslim men aren't allowed to wear gold jewelry.
And yes, he did grow up surrounded by Communists (his own parents and Frank Marshall Davis for starters). This is only new news to those who only get their news from the mainstream news. I think the most interesting thing of it was in at least one instance, Obama participated in a campus DSA (Democratic Socialists of America) townhall which was also co-sponsored by campus Democrats
. Since the two are openly in bed with each other, why make a stink about Obama's Socialist associations? The Democratic party has been infiltrated by pinkos and Reds since at least the FDR administration. It's not exactly a secret. Obama was an open member of the New Party whose Statement of Principles is very similar to mainline Socialist parties such as the Socialist International of which the DSA belongs.
Why get angry if people call the Democratic Party "Socialists" if their campus orgs are openly working with Socialists? We even see it on this forum; the terms "progressive" and "Socialist" heavily overlap. On the social and cultural level, especially, the Democratic Party has heavily been taken over by Socialist revolutionaries. Many Democrats here are for the exact same social aims that every Socialist party out there wants. The only real difference at this point is that one contingent is pro-capitalist and the other is anti-capitalist. On much else you guys are joined at the hip.
There is a difference between socialist and marxist and communist - as you yourself seem to recognize in this post. Red and Pinko go towards the last of the three. Theres no arguing that we're almost all a little bit socialist in this country and the democratic party has aims towards more social programs than the republican party...
As far as Obama surrounded by Communists? Really? Maybe you can argue that with his dad, who he didn't see after he was 5 years old. His mom
Just because she was an anthropologist working in Indonesia doesn't make her a Red.
