According to Park Service, the events permit was obtained by, and issued to, the International Socialists Organization (ISO).
So what is the agenda of the ISO? Here are some quotes from their web site.
From their Web Site:
“The International Socialist Organization (ISO) is committed to building an organization that participates in the struggles for justice and liberation today–and, ultimately, for a future socialist society.”
“ The ISO stands in the tradition of revolutionary socialists Karl Marx, V.I. Lenin and Leon Trotsky in the belief that workers themselves–the vast majority of the population–are the only force that can lead the fight to win a socialist society. Socialism can’t be brought about from above, but has to be won by workers themselves.”
And who else do we find on board for this Obama promoting “American Dream” event?
