Communist Band Opens for Obama

Call me crazy, but if you are stumping for President of the ‘Land of the Free’, would you really want a communist band who sing communist lyrics opening for your speech? Seems like common sense to me considering all the hype from Obama’s past and people who have surrounded him that he would not want any more controversy. Has anyone else noticed that Obama is tied to Islam, radical racials, communists, Israel haters, and those who hate God? Why is he still on the forefront of this campaign? As a country, we have gone totally mad.

A hip rock band that features the Soviet national anthem and communist-inspired lyrics was on stage to open for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama at his record-breaking Portland, Ore., rally that attracted 75,000.

The Decemberists, a Portland-based group with a large local following, also closed the May 18 event.

The Decemberists typically begin their concerts with a Russian-language recording of the USSR’s national anthem.

A YouTube video shows the Decemberists beginning an April 31, 2007, concert at Messiah College in Grantham, Pa., with the anthem.

“Decemberists” refers to an uprising at Senate Square in St. Petersburg Dec. 14, 1825, when a group of Russian army officers led about 3,000 soldiers in protest as Nicholas I assumed the throne, after Czar Alexander died without an heir.

The Decemberists have posed for publicity photos in period Russian costumes with the red flag of the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 waving behind them.
