Buzz Feed dug up a flier from 1996, when Barack Obama was touting wealth "redistribution" and was proud to be considered a socialist.
Jim Hoft over at Gateway Pundit asks "Can we call him a socialist now???"
Yes Mr. Hoft, we can.. if he was proud enough of his socialist credentials in 1996 to appear as a panelist as for the "Democratic Socialists of America", then he should be just as honest and forthcoming of his socialist credentials now.
The better question, no disrespect at all intended toward Mr. Hoft, would be, why in the hell didn't the mainstream media in 2008 do their due diligence and tell American voters back then that the Senator of Illinois, Barack Obama, who wanted to become president of the United States of America, a CAPITALIST country, was a Socialist and proud of it?
The Barack Obama vetting process should have been done in 2008.
Better late than never I guess.
