Once again I must write about a subject that will probably never appear in the overly protective Media covering Obama. My subject today is the important question that must be asked: Is Barack Hussein Obama a closet Marxist?
There are some associations in his past that would lead a person of suspicious nature like me to believe he has a Marxist inclination. Will anyone in the major media talk about the mysterious “Frank.” He’s Obama’s childhood mentor in his book, Dreams From My Father. It has been discovered he’s Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party member and anti-American revolutionary.
In Obama’s book, Dreams From My Father. He writes about “a poet named Frank,” who visited them in Hawaii, read poetry, and was full of “hard-earned knowledge” and advice. Who was Frank? Obama only says that he had “some modest notoriety once,” was “a contemporary of Richard Wright and Langston Hughes during his years in Chicago...” but was now “pushing eighty.” He writes about Frank and his "old Black Power dashiki self” giving him advice before he left for Occidental College in 1979 at the age of 18. This “Frank” is now believed to be Frank Marshall Davis, the black communist writer now treated by some to be in the same category of prominence as Maya Angelou and Alice Walker.
In the summer/fall 2003 issue of African American Review, James A. Miller of George Washington University reviews a book by John Edgar Tidwell, a professor at the University of Kansas, about Davis’s career, and notes, “In Davis’s case, his political commitments led him to join the American Communist Party during the middle of World War II—even though he never publicly admitted his Party membership.” Tidwell is an expert on the life and writings of Davis. source: Accuracy In Media '
Professor Gerald Horne, a contributing editor of the Communist Party journal Political Affairs, talked about Obama's connection with Davis during a speech last March at the reception of the Communist Party USA. source: archives from the Tamiment Library at New York University. The remarks were posted online under the headline, “Rethinking the History and Future of the Communist Party.” Horne, a history professor at the University of Houston, noted that Davis, who moved to Honolulu from Kansas in 1948 “at the suggestion of his good friend Paul Robeson,” came into contact with Barack Obama and his family and became the young man’s mentor, influencing Obama’s sense of identity and career moves.
Robeson, of course, was the well-known black actor and singer who served as a member of the CPUSA and apologist for the old Soviet Union. Davis had known Robeson from his time in Chicago. It was in Chicago that Obama became a “community organizer” and came into contact with more far-left political forces, including the Democratic Socialists of America, which maintains close ties to European socialist groups and parties through the Socialist International (SI), and two former members of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), William Ayers and Carl Davidson. The SDS laid siege to college campuses across America in the 1960s, mostly in order to protest the Vietnam War, and started the "terrorist" Weather Underground organization.
Ayers was a member of the group and turned himself in to authorities in 1981. He is now a college professor and served with Obama on the board of the Woods Fund of Chicago. Davidson is now a figure in the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS), an offshoot of the old Moscow-controlled CPUSA, and helped organize the 2002 rally where Obama came out against the Iraq war.
Obama writes in Dreams From My Father that he saw “Frank” only a few days before he left Hawaii for college, and that Davis seemed just as radical as ever. Davis called college “An advanced degree in compromise” and warned Obama not to forget his “people” and not to “start believing what they tell you about equal opportunity and the American way and all that s**t.” Davis also complained about foot problems, the result of “trying to force African feet into European shoes,” Obama wrote.
Guilt by association is a bad way to judge a person. But Obama's record in the few short years he has been in the US Senate illustrate that he voted the most liberal of all the Senators! His platform is full of socialist programs, and he has failed to repudiate, the few times it has been brought up, his consorting with known Marxists. You be the judge!
