Letter: Obama remarks socialistic

Henri Stone. Gypsum

Barack Obama apparently considers religious faith a sign of hayseed backwardness that simple folk cling to in times of trouble. We should all be deeply unsettled by this condescending remark. However, not simply because it is elitist and obnoxious.

The author of the Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx, would agree with Obama. He said that “Religion is the opiate of the masses.” The Soviet Union fell apart because free-market economies work and communism does not. Liberal professors in our best universities are the only people who still teach that communism is the path to a utopian state. What else did Barack Marx Obama absorb from his exclusive latte liberal education? Is this just the tip of the iceberg?
