President Barack Obama’s new campaign slogan — “forward” — is neither new nor progressive, with many historic and contemporary iterations and links to Marxism, the news media and the state of Wisconsin.

Bloggers were abuzz with the campaign announcement and moved quickly to link forward to a variety of nefarious political movements. Indeed, the word can be found in Chinese Communism, as in the Great Leap Forward, and the Hitler Youth had an anthem called “Vorwarts! Vorwarts!”

On the positive side is the State Coat of Arms of Wisconsin which has the word “forward” on it. The word is also the state motto.

“Reflecting Wisconsin's continuous drive to be a national leader, the state adopted ‘Forward’ as the official state motto in 1851,” the state website notes.

Then there’s New York’s The Jewish Daily Forward and the MSNBC slogan “Lean Forward.”

Jewish Daily Forward’s Gal Beckerman writes, “It’s not every day that the president chooses a new campaign slogan … and it happens to be the name of your news organization.

“We are tickled, of course, by the choice,” Beckerman added. “As are, apparently, the folks in Twitter-land. There are those who think he is borrowing the slogan from MSNBC, and even a few, like Bill Kristol, who think it’s to Mao that the president is turning. We have no special insight on this. It’s just amusing to see our name writ so large.”
