Much has been said about the Marxist/Socialist associations of President Obama’s new slogan “Forward!” We had our own fun with it here.
And heaven knows it’s a good slogan for the President because he doesn’t want anyone looking backward to his time in office (except for sort of, kind of weaseling his way to saying to go ahead and get OBL).
But what’s fascinating is the flurry of activity over at Wikipedia. There’s an entry entitled Forward (generic name of socialist publications). You need to check it out quickly because it’s been flagged and may be deleted. Here’s a screen cap (click to embiggen).
This small entry has now been edited on Wikipedia some 100 times in the last 24 hours. Seems like someone has problems with the President’s socialist leanings.
In case the page does disappear, here are two more screen caps of the editing.
I particularly love this notation:

Write much Captain Obvious? I mean seriously, couldn’t you at least try to appear non-biased?
Here in the Commonwealth, we’ve seen this type of editing before. Six years ago hardly any American had heard or spoken the word “macaca.” The word, or a variation thereof may have appeared in an obscure medical dictionary…or not.
But when the infamous video showed up three days after the event anyone who Googled the word went straight to the Wikipedia page, which showed three days of editing. That’s right the definition of the word The Washington Post loved to print was created by a couple of left-wing smear merchants who still try to wear it as a badge of honor.
But let them go ahead and spend their time editing the Wikipedia page. We’ve got other sources.
