Newspapers Purging Evidence of Obama’s Marxist Roots?
I covered Obama’s hidden Marxist past before. That entry — which explored the communist sympathies of Obama’s mother — relied on a Chicago Tribune article entitled Barack Obama: Mother not just a girl from Kansas. As noted in the Chicago Tribune article:
1. Obama’s mother attended a radical, communist-leaning church known as “the little red church on the hill.”
2. Obama’s mother attended a radical, communist-leaning high school where she was taught the Communist Manifesto and which had a communist school board chairman and which had several communist teachers on staff.
3. Obama’s mother was called a “fellow traveler” by her friends, which is code for communist sympathizer.
Now here’s where things get weird. If you go to the Chicago Tribune webpage that formerly housed the aforementioned article, you get the following error message:
We are sorry, but we are currently experiencing technical difficulties. Please try back later. Thank you for visiting chicagotribune.com.
But the rest of the Chicago Tribune website works fine. Think I’m paranoid? Well, here’s where it gets even weirder. The Chicago Tribune is owned by the Tribune Company, which owns several other papers — including the Baltimore Sun and Los Angeles Times — and it appears that those papers also ran the same article on Obama’s mother. So what happens when you go to the Baltimore Sun webpage where the article used to be located? You guessed it:
We are sorry, but we are currently experiencing technical difficulties. Please try back later. Thank you for visiting baltimoresun.com.
How about when you go to the LA Times webpage where the article used to be located:
Sorry, the page you requested could not be found. … Thank you for visiting latimes.com.
Now, I’m not one for conspiracy theories, and it is entirely possible that there is a reasonable explanation for this. But I find this whole thing very suspicious. What do you think?
