Brian Preston: “It’s evident from the tone that not only did Obama know Marxist professors at his college, he found their presence uncontroversial. Occidental is not Harvard, of course, but no one in the media has explored what Obama’s college associations tell us about his worldview. Several have torn after Cruz’s speech, though.
Interestingly, while the media have seized on Cruz’s remarks while ignoring Obama’s, they have also failed to note a major difference between them. Cruz was clearly criticizing Marxist professors in his 2010 speech. According to Obama’s own words in his own book, he sought them out.”

New Yorker mag: “our new McCarthy.”
Harvard Crimson: ” We would have assured them that it was okay to be anti-intellectual… ” Questioning or diminishing Marxism is anti-intellectual, you see? Got it?
