Malia Obama Wears Peacenik Communist T-shirt ~ A Message To G8 Leaders?
Miss Obama's peacenik T-shirt sends a message to G8 leaders
By Charlotte Spratt
Barack Obama's eldest daughter has a clear message for her father - it's time to get rid of the world's nuclear weapons.
Just 48 hours after the U.S. President shook hands with Vladimir Putin over an agreement to reduce their stockpile of nuclear weapons, Malia spotted out wearing not one, but two anti-nuclear T-shirts.
The 11-year-old wore tops bearing the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament's famous symbol as her father prepared for three days of G8 talks in Italy.
She wore a grey T-shirt to visit the Colosseum in Rome with mother Michelle and sister Sasha, seven, and then appeared to have whipped it off to reveal a mottled white and grey top also bearing the CND logo.
The symbol, designed for the CND in 1958, is now widely used as to signify peace and is also an international sign for anti-war protesters.
The Obama's spent two days in Moscow this week meeting President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
There the America and Russia agreed a landmark deal to reduce their stockpile of nuclear weapons.
The 'joint understanding' would see the two countries - which between them possess 95 per cent of the world's nuclear firepower - cut the number of warheads to around 1,500 from current levels above 2,200.
At the height of the Cold War both sides had some 40,000.
And it seems Malia was a fan of the agreement, though the deal is a 'guide' for negotiators as the nations work toward a replacement pact for the START arms control agreement, which expires in December.
Obama's family are now accompanying him at the G8 in the Italian town of L'Aquila for three days of talks on global issues such as climate change, trade and financial reform with Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan,and Russia.
Wild Thing's comment........
This shirt is atrocious for the daughter of an American President to be wearing!!!! BIG Mistake!
What is next from these communists in the White House, Che t-shirts?
Obama and his family are an utter embarrassment to our great country. He puts America down every chance he gets and has done so in every country he has visited since becoming president. And now this??????
Cowards and hippies sported the Peace Symbol and "Make Love, Not War" during the 60's. Instant flashback and I hated it then and that has not changed. I could care less if it is the "in thing" in all the stores right now, or if all the kids are wearing this it does not make it OK.
Message to the Obamas. Keep your kids out of politics if you want them off limits. If you are going to let them wear radical clothing pushing the farthest leftist agenda in history then you leave the door wide open .
Regardless if she intended it to be a political statement, or not, it still is a political statement. For the daughter of the President of the United States who is traveling abroad on official business. She needs to learn she is representing her country, whether or not she wants to be or not. As others have pointed out, an adult should have known better, and not allowed her to wear the shirt. Malia is only 11, so this is all Michelle's fault for not doing the right thing.
I can promise you if had ever done something like this my Father would have had me throw it away and not even allow it in our home. I mean it, I would not have bought one but if I had, that is exactly what he would have done and he would have been correct in doing so.
Barack Obama, as President, has sent men into battle and men have been killed as recently as yesterday. There is no doubt that there are parents with sons and daughters in the service in theaters of combat that will take great offense to her shirt.
Children are off limits, I agree. But, the children cannot expect to make overtly political, and might I add inflammatory, statements and not expect to be publicly criticized.
One of the pages at my website is called ..." Extreme Prejudice The Red Zone"....... It specalizes in information about John Kerry, Hanoi Jane, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and information about the Peace Symbol.
The Truth About Those Strange Designs
In all of their public commentaries the Communists employ what they call "Aesopian language," enabling them to communicate freely with one another without alarming the target population in whose midst they operate. It is this coded Marxist jargon with which the Communist leadership lays down the ever-changing vagaries of the Party Line.
The technique dates from the early days of the Russian Revolution. International Affairs, an official publication of the Communist Party, U.S.A., quotes Vladimir Lenin as referring to "that cursed 'Aesopian' language - to which Tsarism forced revolutionaries to have recourse whenever they took up their pens in order to undertake a 'legal' work .... " Joseph Stalin noted: "A legally published newspaper could not call openly for the overthrow .... It had to resort to hints, which, however, the class-conscious workers [Communists] understood very well, and which they explained to the masses."
In Language As A Communist Weapon, Professor Stefan Possony explains how the Communists code their revolutionary terms to deceive gullible non-Communists. He correctly observes that "The deception of the non-Communist world is, of course, a main objective of their language manipulations .... Non-Communists are easily deceived, because they rarely bother to get full Communist quotes, usually misunderstand their context, and hardly ever master the Communist jargon."
Professor James D. Bales explains in his valuable Dictionary Of Communist English that, as early as the Seventh World Congress of the Comntern (Communist International) at Moscow, special attention was given to avoiding the use of "sectarian language." The object, says Dr. Bales, was to create a jargon for revolutionaries which would be pleasing to non-Communist ears while at the same time conveying revolutionary commands to the Communists.
A society can be attacked by the undermining or perversion or destruction of its symbols. An obvious example is the public burning of American flags by the revolutionary Marxists who flaunt the tri-colored banners of the Communist Vietcong. Several years ago, you will recall, members of a team of saboteurs belonging to the Communist Revolutionary Action Movement were arrested as they moved to dynamite such symbols of our American heritage as the Statue of Liberty, the Old North Bridge, and the Liberty Bell.
The Communists seek to replace traditional American symbols with those of their own design. Which is why they employ symbolism as a part of their "Aesopian" code. Thus Communist symbols exhibit both exoteric and esoteric meanings. That sounds a little heady, let's break it down more simply. Webster's Third New International Dictionary defines exoteric as "suitable to be imparted to the public; readily comprehensible; publicly .known ." That which is esoteric, says Webster's, is "designed for or understood by the specially initiated alone ... confined or limited to a small circle."
Socialist conspirators have long made a habit of using ostensibly innocent, and previously positive, symbols as a part of their trappings. An obvious example is the use of the swastika by AdoIf Hitler's National Socialist Party.
Symbols, Signs And Their Meaning that "Red, of course, is the color of anarchy and the left wing in politics. The Red flag was used as a slogan of battle, and there is a reference to it in this sense in the London Gazette of 1666. This significance is clearly derived from blood .... "
Another esoteric symbol of the international socialist movement is the "joined" or "clasped" hands - the ancient sign of the god Fides. Mackey's Symbolism says this design has been used historically to denote fidelity. It is now used by the Freemasons, the A.F.L.-C.I.O., and is frequently reproduced in the Communist Daily World to indicate union between Comrades. This insignia is the official symbol of the Communist-controlled Student "Nonviolent" Coordinating Committee, and serves as the logo for the Trotskyite Communists' Workers World.
But surely the most omnipresent symbol used currently by the international socialists is the one which we are told is a sign of "peace." The Communists love "peace." You will remember that Lenin declared more than forty years ago in The Tasks Of The Youth League that: "As an ultimate objective, 'peace' simply means Communist world control." And the Communists are campaigning for precisely that sort of "peace." Their symbol is a part of the trappings of this scheme. Resembling a chicken track enclosed in a circle, or a swept-wing bomber in vertical flight, the "peace" insignia - like the other symbols of the international socialists - reflects what Lenin called "that cursed 'Aesopian' language."
In the fall of 1968 your correspondent attended a four-hour "acid rock" festival in a darkened auditorium in downtown Seattle. Sprawled throughout the hall were more than three hundred young radicals, many on drugs and all bathed in the eerie and subliminal patterns being flashed in stroboscopic colors on the curtain serving as a backdrop for the "entertainers." In the center of that curtain, upon which were flashed the faces of Ho chi Minh, Che Guevara, and Mao Tse- tung, was a huge Aldermaston "peace" symbol.

While I can appreciate Malia wanting to show her own style and independence, it was inappropriate to wear as the daughter of the sitting President. She is getting to that age where she is going to start rebelling against her parents though. I always thought that if liberals could use the peace sign then so could conservatives.
Now, in the second picture, does Michelle look like a monkey or is it just me?

The best thing I can say about the Obama Newscasts is that it is cutting down the Michael Jackson Hype.
Malia (Malaria) is that she is not as ugly as her mother, and does not have her mother's big @$$ hips.
No, Lynn, it is not you. I'm just not sure what species of primate Michelle is.

Would we expect any less from an Obama? They see nothing wrong with such things, coming from the "We know Best, Comrade" belief system they have.
Here's a link to Obama wearing a t-shirt of Che wearing an Obama t-shirt:

Is Malia trying to grow a mustache ? I guess all the women in that family have a problem with facial hair.

It is absolutely wrong for obama's kid to be wearing that shirt. What if one of Bush's daughters was seen wearing a shirt that read, "Kill em all, Let God sort them out". The obamas are not a class act. The Presidency reqires a high degree of decorum and the obamas show they are not up to it.

Children are a reflection of their parents, at 10 I'll excuse Malia but not her parents. They know better and it's that in your face arrogance on display.
I'll preface what I'm saying. One of my paternal uncles was a custom butcher, I and one brother spent many a weekend indentured at his slaughterhouse helping, the interim was spent delivering to his customers, mostly dogfood (horsesmeat), 3 times a week were deliveries to a major well known zoo. He kept monkeys from the zoo at his home, taking care of the sick ones, we took care of them too, nasty vicious creatures, I developed an intense dislike for them, followed by their being in the wilds of la la land. Personally I'd rather crawl into a VC tunnel than be around monkeys.
Unrestrained O Bonobos on exhibit. Much like the scene at the zoo when you visit the section where the apes are kept, you'll find zero morals on exhibit, outrageous public behavior, even for animals, most of you know what I'm saying so I'll not elaborate, I wouldn't take youngsters or my mother there either. I'm smiling Lynn:)

If you have not seen this take a look and it will clarify things a little.
Here is a second post.

Supporting the cause that brought Pol Pot to power and killed more than three million Indochinese is not something that she is knowingly doing. Malia is after all only eleven years old. We forget that Barack Obama is too young (Reagan was President before he turned twenty.) to have direct experience with the slaughter of three million that went on in Indochina as the direct result of the "Peace Movement." To him "the killing fields" are just a historical incident and we all despair over how little Obama has learned from history.
The Whitehouse needs some adult who remembers that Goldwater told the whole country in 1964 what would happen. That the MSM averted their eyes as it happened. Malia should know that the people who wore that symbol were every bit racist bigots who referred to Vietnamese as "Gooks." She should know that they were as lacking in compassion, when they were not in fact the same people as the ones that wore white sheets and referred to “Niggers.”
The Private schools do too good of a job of isolating the children that attend them or Prince Charles’s Son would know not to where a Nazi uniform and Malia would know not be wearing the symbols of the hate filled "Peaceniks."
