A new book being released this week chronicles Barack Obama’s early days in Hawaii when he was mentored by Frank Marshall Davis, a card carrying communist.
Dr. Paul Kengor’s book, The Communist, has the subtitle of Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor. The book details Kengor’s research and interviews with those who knew Obama back in those days. Although the book traces the influence that Davis had Obama, Kengor is careful not to come out right and label Obama a communist, but does say that the influences of that teaching explains many of his policies we’ve seen over the past three years.
He was even able to access released FBI profiles that contained information that verified some of Kengor’s findings. In one account, Kengor describes his interview with John Drew who knew Obama well while attending Occidental College. Kengor quotes Drew as saying:
“Obama was already an ardent Marxist when I met him in the fall of 1980.”
“If Obama was on the Marxist-Leninist left, we have no accounting, from Obama or anyone, of a switch. Quite the contrary, in Obama’s memoirs, we hear about him attending socialist conferences and ‘hanging out’ with Marxist professors, but never any repudiation of those conferences, professors, or even a tiny, passing comment suggesting these were fanciful musings from a politically misguided youth.”
Kengor also quotes Davis’ writing on the economy that is quite descriptive of the economic policies of President Obama. He advocated that to stimulate the economy, the federal government needed to collect taxes and then redistribute that money for health insurance, education, low cost housing, and increased social security benefits. Davis said not to rely on businesses, private or large or even Wall Street to stimulate the economy but to do it through taxation.
Obama has never denied his association with communists, Marxists and socialists and even has some of them serving in his administration. His actions in office follow closely to the party lines of socialism and Marxism. Kengor’s book leaves no doubt about his communist mentor’s influence on Obama and that influence is still seen in his actions today.
If Obama had openly announced that he was a communist or Marxist, he never would have been elected. He has lied to everyone in the U.S. about his background and continues to hide so many things about himself and that I can’t believe anyone would be so stupid to put any trust in him. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit for Obama to come out of the Marxist closet if he wins a second term. If that happens, God help us all.
