Another day and another tid bit about Barack Obama.

The video of the children singing in my previous post just got my curiosity.

For some reason I decided to do a little research on Barack Obama and the Communist party.

I have to put in this disclaimer: I am never going to say that Barack Obama is a card carrying Communist as I have no proof of this fact.

However I did find this particular web page:

http://www.aim.org/aim-column/communist-party-backs-obama/

This page is provided by Accuracy In Media.

I also found this web page:

http://www.rightsidenews.com/200807031341/culture-wars/communist-party-backs-obama.html

So the only things we do know is that Barack Obama is not a Muslim, however we don’t really know who his friends are.

Why would Barack Obama allow Alan L. Maki, an admitted member of the Communist Party of the USA (CPUSA) to blog on the official Obama.com website.

I find it so coincidental that the CPUSA is working towards obliterating the Republican Party and makes that claim on their own page:

Another interesting page that I found from Accuracy in Media is as follows:

http://www.aim.org/aim-column/obamas-communist-mentor/

Here is an excerpt from that page:

But you will find it briefly discussed, sort of, in Obama’s own 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 none other than Frank Marshall Davis, the black communist writer now considered 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.

Is it possible that Obama did not know who Davis was when he wrote his book, Dreams From My Father, first published in 1995? That’s not plausible since Obama refers to him as a contemporary of Richard Wright and Langston Hughes and says he saw a book of his black poetry.

The communists knew who “Frank” was, and they know who Obama is. In fact, one academic who travels in communist circles understands the significance of the Davis-Obama relationship.

Professor Gerald Horne, a contributing editor of the Communist Party journal Political Affairs, talked about it during a speech last March at the reception of the Communist Party USA archives at the Tamiment Library at New York University. The remarks are posted online under the headline, “Rethinking the History and Future of the Communist Party.”

So who is this mentor Frank Marshall Davis that Barack Obama had looked up to.

Wow, it seems that Frank Marshall Davis was a Communist.

I have to put in this disclaimer: I am never going to say that Barack Obama is a card carrying Communist as I have no proof of this fact.

So again what do we not know about Barack Obama?

So what exactly does the future hold for us if Barack Obama is elected the President of the United States?

    Hi Alan,

    And I am happy that your blog is still there. Because we still have the privilege of the first amendment and freedom of press.
    I would not have wanted you to recant your position or remove it. I would never want to censor your position. It is what makes The USA a great place to live. I just want to keep it that way so we all can see, hear and understand other people’s point of view. I just wanted to make people aware of your point of view and the influences that Barack Obama has had in his life including Frank Marshal Davis.
    Please keep your blog going.

    Peace my Friend,

    ST
