Obama Apparently Spoke at a 1996 Event Hosted by a Socialist Group

President Barack Obama has very frequently come under fire for purportedly embracing socialist ideals. While some have called these characterizations unfair, others have continued to maintain that Obama’s ideals dance on a line that very easily earns him such a distinction. Now, an alleged 1996 advertisement from the Hyde Park Herald, a community newspaper in Chicago, touts an appearance by Obama at an event sponsored by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), among other groups.

BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski says that the ad is “a reminder that the President presented himself as much more progressive during his time in Chicago.” Now, it’s important to note that Obama appeared with other professors and experts on the panel and according to the ad, the discussion, entitled, “Employment and Survival in Urban America,“ was centered upon ”economic insecurity.”
