The Racists and bigots on the right are going a frenzy when someone posted a video of then nobody Barack Obama talking about Communism and “White racism”.
In this said video, he clearly discloses who “Frank” is, and discusses the various lessons he learned from him—including how racist white people once were.
“I have a discussion with him about the kinds of frustrations I’m having, and he sorts of schools me that I should get used to these frustrations,” Obama said of his conversations with Frank, who was a black man from Kansas.
The racists on the right claim that THIS is proof of Obama’ communism. Because remember, according to them if you show respect to groups and religions that AREN’T dominated by white people, and remind the world of America’s dark history (And yes, America DOES have a dark history.) You might be a Communist.
But Common sense, fact-checking and reality begs to differ.
In the 1995 video, Barack Obama does NOT “admit” (distortion #1) that his “mentor” (distortion #2) was Frank Marshall Davis. He merely REVEALS that “Frank” (from “Dreams From My Father”) was Frank Marshall Davis. By misrepresenting his video, you have created a straw man.
There was never any doubt (since 2008) that “Frank” was Frank Marshall Davis. The point of contention is his influence on Obama. Cliff Kincaid’s “Obama’s Communist Mentor” disinformation campaign earned his ironically-named “Accuracy In Media” (AIM) THREE “Pinocchio’s” from the Washington Post fact-checker (see
It’s obvious that Frank never indoctrinated Obama in communism. Obama didn’t even know about Frank’s CPUSA background! Frank was a CLOSET member who never admitted his membership in public, much less advocate communism!
Cliff Kincaid’s claim that “His values, passed on to Obama, were those of a communist agent who pledged allegiance to Stalin” (see http://www.aim.org/aim-column/… is without merit, and may be dismissed with impunity.
And yet, nowhere does he say, or even suggest, that he was his mentor.
Ignoring the other fact that there is no evidence that Davis was a Communist agitator. But then again, facts and birthers don’t go together.
video is nothing than an attack piece from the racists and bigots in America and STILL can’t accept the cold-hard fact that a black man is President of the United States. that all this is, was and ever will be. People who don’t like Obama’s way of governing don’t care about this.
Judging by the fact that the Dow has tripled during his administration, I would have to say he’s the worst communist ever.
If he wanted to destroy America he’s taking his time and doing a lousy job of that too. All leading economic indicators are positive. The only perspective in which he’s doing a bad job is through the crap colored glasses of Fox news.
-Barack Obama is NOT a Muslim and even if he was, doesn’t matter.
-Barack Obama is NOT Anti – American.
-Barack Obama is NOT a Marxist. in fact, one should understand the concept of Marxism before posing such a question.
-Barack Obama is NOT a homosexual. Those making such claims are now grasping at straws.
-Barack Obama is NOT a traitor, though those that continually denigrate and defame the Standing President of The United States have a touch of treason in them.
-Barack Obama is NOT a communist. Again, one must understand the concept before posing such a question.
-Barack Obama could be impeached. Any President could be. But none could be impeached by some pinhead on Sodahead.
-Barack Obama is NOT destroying America. The constant hate and derision is destroying America.
-Barack Obama does NOT hate America. He IS the duly elected President.
-Barack Obama is NOT a dictator. He is the 44th President of the United States of America.
Seriously, Stop blaming the Black Man in office for EVERYTHING wrong and grow a brain, but that will be too much for you racists!
Calling the POTUS a POS and a fraud seems to the usual calling call for you right-wing racists and bigots like you!
