OBAMA’S RED MENTOR PRAISES RED ARMY
By Cliff Kincaid

“Barack Obama’s childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the Moscow-controlled Communist Party USA, wrote a poem dedicated to the Soviet Red Army.
“Smash on, victory-eating Red Army,” he declared.
He also wrote poems attacking traditional Christianity and the work of Christian missionaries.
The “Red Army” poem goes beyond hoping for the communists to beat the Nazis in World War II and hails the Soviet revolution. It says:
“Show the marveling multitudes
Americans, British, all your allied brothers
How strong you are
How great you are
How your young tree of new unity
Planted twenty-five years ago
Bears today the golden fruit of victory!”
One Davis poem, “Christ is a Dixie Nigger,” dismisses Christ as “another New White Hope” and declares:
“Remember this, you wise guys
Your tales about Jesus of Nazareth are no-go with me
I’ve got a dozen Christs in Dixie all bloody and black…”
The revelations about Davis’ poetry will add to the controversy over what kind of role Davis played in shaping Obama’s political views. Davis (1905-1987) seems to have had the same kind of anti-American outlook that animated Obama’s longtime pastor, Jeremiah Wright. In fact, Davis was pro-Soviet, not just anti-American.”

Young Obama’s Red Mentor

“As Obama was preparing to head off to college, he sat at Davis’ feet in his Waikiki bungalow for bitter nightly bull sessions. Davis plied his impressionable guest with liberal shots of whiskey and advice, including: Never trust the white establishment.
“They’ll train you so good,” he said, “you’ll start believing what they tell you about equal opportunity and the American way and all that sh**.”
In the eyes of white America, Davis warned Obama: “You may be a well-trained, well-paid n*****, but you’re a n***** just the same.” He also nurtured anti-white hatred in his young mulatto subject, telling him, “Black people have a reason to hate.”
How much influence did Comrade Davis have on Obama? The Democrat White House hopeful refuses to talk about the relationship now. In the book, he only shares that he was “intrigued by old Frank, with his books and whiskey breath and the hint of hard-earned knowledge.”
However, Obama followed in Davis’ footsteps after college, working as a “community organizer” for the same socialist network in Chicago. He even considered a career in journalism like Davis.
Obama attended socialist conferences, and took a shine to other black Marxist revolutionists. Not long after Davis died in 1987, Obama came under the spell of another black nationalist-socialist, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who, like Davis, wore a dashiki and became a father figure.
If the relationship with Davis was as blase as the Associated Press makes it sound, why is Obama mum about it? And why did he try to hide Davis’ identity in his first memoir, published in 1995?
“With the exception of my family and a handful of public figures,” he wrote in the preface, “the names of most characters have been changed for the sake of privacy.” But there was no need to protect Davis’ privacy. He had long been dead.
More likely, the cryptic references to his communist mentor were — and still are — designed to protect Obama’s background from the scrutiny it deserves.”
REASONABLE CONCLUSION CONCERNING BARACK OBAMA: THE INFLUENCES OF DAVIS, WRIGHT, ALINSKY, AYERS AND OTHERS
>OBAMA WAS TAUGHT BY ANTI-AMERICAN INDIVIDUALS WHO TUTORED HIM IN THEIR GRIM WORLD VIEW: COMMUNISM, RACIAL HATRED, CLASS WARFARE, DESTRUCTION OF TRADITIONAL AMERICANISM.
>THEY PROMOTED SOCIALISM AND COMMUNISM AS ULTIMATE CURES FOR ALL THE WORLD’S ILLS
>OBAMA HAS CONSISTENTLY FOLLOWED THAT PATH, ESPOUSED THOSE VIEWS, WITH APPROPRIATE RHETORICAL MODIFICATIONS FOR THE SAKE OF ELECTIBILIITY
>OBAMA WENT SO FAR AS TO ESTABLISH A NON-PROFIT YOUTH TRAINING ORGANIZATION, “PUBLIC ALLIES”
>”PUBLIC ALLIES” TEACHES YOUNG PEOPLE, THAT AMERICA IS RACIST, HOMOPHOBIC, PATERNALISTIC AND CAPITALISM AND THE MILITARY ARE TO BE DISDAINED
>”PUBLIC ALLIES” TEACHES YOUNG PEOPLE: “Individual salvation depends on collective salvation.”
OBAMA’S WIFE WAS MADE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF “PUBLIC ALLIES.” THEY HAVE SAID THE GOAL IS TO HAVE TAXPAYERS FUND THE ORGANIZATION TO THE TUNE OF $500B.
THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WE ARE CONSIDERING FOR THE WHITE HOUSE?
HOW DID A MAN WITH NO REAL EXPERIENCE AND NO PERCEIVABLE QUALIFICATION TO BE PRESIDENT CAPTURE THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION AND AMASS A $340M WAR CHEST TO CAMPAIGN, THE LARGEST IN HISTORY?
WHY IS THE MEDIA SO ENAMOURED WITH THIS INDIVIDUAL? WHY DO REPORTERS REFUSE TO ASK OBAMA THE HARD QUESTIONS ABOUT HIS LACK OF EXPERIENCE, HIS BACKGROUND AND ASSOCIATIONS AND HIS POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY?
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SELECTED A PRESIDENT BASED ONLY ON THE MAN’S ABILITY TO DELIVER A SPEECH, KNOWING ALMOST NOTHING ABOUT WHAT HE REALLY BELIEVES?
Relationship between Davis and Barack Obama
In his autobiographical Dreams from My Father, U.S. Senator and Democratic Party presidential candidate Barack Obama wrote about “Frank”, a friend of his grandfather’s. “Frank” told Obama that he and Stanley (Obama’s maternal grandfather) both had grown up only 50 miles apart, near Wichita, although they did not meet until Hawaii. He described the way race relations were back then, including Jim Crow, and his view that there had been little progress since then.
As Obama remembered, “It made me smile, thinking back on Frank and his old Black Power, dashiki self. In some ways he was as incurable as my mother, as certain in his faith, living in the same sixties time warp that Hawaii had created.” Obama also remembered Frank later in life when he took a job in South Chicago as a community organizer when he took some time one day and visited the areas where Frank had lived and wrote in his book, “I imagined Frank in a baggy suit and wide lapels, standing in front of the old Regal Theatre, waiting to see Duke or Ella emerge from a gig.”
Gerald Horne, a Communist Party historian and contributing editor of Political Affairs, claims that “Frank” was Davis, and further claimed he was a “decisive influence” on Obama. Similar claims were made about Davis in the anti-Obama book The Obama Nation.
A rebuttal to The Obama Nation released by Obama’s presidential campaign, titled Unfit for Publication, confirms that “Frank” was, in fact, Frank Marshall Davis, but disputes claims made about the nature of their relationship.
