Obama Mentor ‘Communist’

Frank Marshall Davis ‘discussed American imperialism, colonialism, exploitation’
 Source: WorldNetDaily

The mysterious “Frank” cited as a friend and adviser by Democratic president contender Barack Obama while he was growing up in Hawaii has been identified as Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the old Moscow-controlled Communist Party USA.The identification comes from Cliff Kincaid in his column, “Obama’s Communist Mentor,” which was made available on the Accuracy in Media website.“Let’s challenge the liberal media to report on this,” he wrote in his column. “Will they have the honesty and integrity to do so?”Kincaid, who earlier reported on Obama’s pending plan to ship $845 billion overseas to battle “global poverty” as evidence of his socialist leanings, said the newly revealed connection is even more worrisome.Obama’s communist connection adds to mounting public concern about a candidate who has come out of virtually nowhere, with a brief U.S. Senate legislative record, to become the Democratic Party frontrunner for the U.S. presidency,” he wrote.

In Obama’s book, “Dreams From My Father,” he repeatedly refers to his friend and adviser as “Frank.”

Folks, dunno bout you, but don’t think I am interested in having the leader of our Nation having this guy as an advisor?????

“The reason is apparent: Davis was a known communist who belonged to a party subservient to the Soviet Union. In fact, the 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified him as a CPUSA member. What’s more, anti-communist congressional committees, including the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), accused Davis of involvement in several Communist front organizations,” Kincaid said.

Kincaid noted Obama has admitted attending “social conferences” and seeing Marxist literature. “But he ridicules the charge of being a ‘hard-core academic Marxist,’ which was made by his colorful and outspoken 2004 U.S. Senate opponent, Republican Alan Keyes.”

He described the link as “ominous.”

Decades ago, the CPUSA had tens of thousands of members, some of them covert agents who had penetrated the U.S. government. It received secret subsidies from the old Soviet Union,” Kincaid wrote.

He noted even Obama describes “Frank” has having “some modest notoriety once.”

Kincaid notes that a history professor in Houston reported that Davis “befriended” a family whose son was named Barack Obama, “who retracing the steps of Davis eventually decamped to 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…,” Kincaid wrote. “The SDS laid siege to college campuses across America in the 1960s, mostly in order to protest the Vietnam War, and spawned the terrorist Weather Underground organization.”

He also reported Kathryn Takara, a professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, confirmed that Davis is the “Frank” in Obama’s book.

She did her dissertation on Davis, and wrote that he brought, “an acute sense of race relations and class struggle throughout America and the world” and that he openly discussed subjects such as American imperialism, colonialism and exploitation, according to AIM.

Obama’s campaign also, for the third straight day, declined to respond to WND requests for comment on the report of a Minnesota man who alleges he shared cocaine with Obama when Obama was a state lawmaker in Illinois.

Well, the media does not seem to be interested in reporting any

of this, do they? Where is the outcry? Where are all the calls,

 emails, letters to NBC. CBS. ABC. CNN. FOX. MSNBC? 

Where is the spunk we should have inherited from our

 forefathers? What about those that have given their lives

 on the battlefield for our freedom?

 Do we want ‘change, ‘free healthcare’ 

(see how free it is when the government is in control)

 so badly that we would exchange our freedoms, & liberties

for a good speaker that says what we want to hear even though
there is no substance whatsoever?

  2. Good post — this is an interesting topic. I just put up a post on the media’s coverage and editorial decisions.

    I’m reminded of the media’s reluctance to report on Bill Clinton’s issues during his time campaigning and in office. It takes Drudge Report, apparently.

    Here’s a similar story that has escaped notice as well:

    Welcome Clearchannel, thanks for the link, I’ll check it out. Yes, the media seems to pick and choose for their own agenda, whatever that may be at the time.

  3. I think that there is more than enough evidence that Obama is a Marxist (though of course his youthful smile and manner will make people think otherwise even as he denies this). But Hillary is as well. And I hold no faith in McCain. I think the Dark Side has been able to pull a coup on America (and many other countries in the west) this time. I’m not sure what we can do about it except pray that God gives each one of us individual guidance on how to stay true and be safe.
    It’s important that we teach our children well and ensure that we look to the future and do what we can to ensure that it’s going to be better than what we have here today.

    Well said Aurora, Thank you for your input and Christian guidance. Yes, it seems that all we can do is be a mighty pen (or keypad) to shout the truth as we know it and most importantly to pray and to teach our little ones the best we can in what surely sounds like change coming from the dark side. I think you are absolutely right about this.

  4. “….a good speaker that says what we want to hear even though
    there is no substance whatsoever?”

    The short answer is yes. The average voter is not interested in real change Angie, they like to hear about it and as long as they themselves don’t have to do anything, it doesn’t matter if that change never actually eventuates.

    “…that we would exchange our freedoms, & liberties…”

    Perhaps you’ve had them for too long and have grown ignorant of the pain from not having them. I suppose every nation has to screw up and learn from the painful consequences Angie. Those of us in the rest of the ‘west’ are yet to learn the price of free healthcare, gun control and handing everything over to the state. But learn we will, learn or perish.

    Oh MK, you are right that we have grown ignorant, ignorant because of our laziness, spoiled because of our advantages. We have taken them for granted and in our apathy and lack of knowledge we do not think of the price to pay for that ignorance nor do we have the gratitude for the price paid for our freedom. We want what we want when we want it, we are a microwave generation standing in front of it and telling it to hurry up.

    They are already talking on the gun control issue again since the latest University murders. They don’t seem to take into account that any criminal can and will get guns. It is the law abiding person that will pay the consequence, that will have their ability to defend themselves and their family taken away.
