Obama and the progressive community on the other hand is a different story; you can find Karl Marx books , communist propaganda, Ernesto Lynch (Che Guevara) etc nonsense sold and promoted by every vendor at and ALL progressive gatherings/protests/rallies while they're all dressed in their RED shirts promoting collectivist nonsense...
