Upon listening to some of the feedback from our political posts about President Barack Obama being a Marxist, I have decided to write a series of articles which will show and prove once and for all that Obama is definitely a Marxist. For those of you who do not know, the term “Marxist” comes from the author of the “Communist Manifesto”, Karl Marx. Communism and Socialism can trace their beginnings and beliefs back to Karl Marx and his Communist Manifesto book. Be sure to check out additional links in this series at the end of this article.
I truly believe Obama’s ultimate goal is to destroy the American capitalist system and implement a socialist system in it’s place.
Barack Obama’s childhood mentor was one Frank Marshall Davis, a known member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). Barack wrote in his book, “Dreams From My Father”, 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.
Who was Richard Wright?
Richard Wright was an author and a communist. Wright edited Left Front, a magazine that the Communists later shut down despite his repeated protests. While Wright was at first pleased by positive relations with white Communists in Chicago, he was later humiliated in New York City by some who rescinded an offer to find housing for Wright because of his race. To make matters worse, some black Communists denounced the articulate, polished Wright as a bourgeois intellectual, assuming he was well educated and overly assimilated into white society. However, he was largely autodidactic after having been forced to end his public education after the completion of grammar school. Wright’s insistence that young communist writers be given space to cultivate their talents and his working relationship with a black nationalist communist led to a public falling out with the party and the leading African-American communist Buddy Nealson. In 1937, Richard Wright moved to New York, where he forged new ties with Communist Party members there after getting established.
Who was Langston Hughes?
Langston Hughes was a poet and Communist, even though later in life he distanced himself from Communism. In 1932, Hughes became part of a group of blacks who went to the Soviet Union to make a film depicting the plight of African Americans in the United States. The film was never made, but Hughes was given the opportunity to travel extensively through the Soviet Union and to the Soviet-controlled regions in Central Asia, the latter parts usually closed to Westerners. Hughes’ poetry was frequently published in the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) newspaper and he was involved in initiatives supported by Communist organizations, such as the drive to free the Scottsboro Boys. Partly as a show of support for the Republican faction during the Spanish Civil War, in 1937 Hughes traveled to Spain as a correspondent for the Baltimore Afro-American and other various African-American newspapers. Hughes was also involved in other Communist-led organizations like the John Reed Clubs and the League of Struggle for Negro Rights. He was more of a sympathizer than an active participant. He signed a statement in 1938 supporting Joseph Stalin’s purges and joined the American Peace Mobilization in 1940 working to keep the U.S. from participating in World War II.
Who is Frank?
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.
Barack Obama’s mentor, whom he spoke about frequently in his books, is definitely Frank Marshall Davis. Frank is definitely a communist. Frank influenced Barack more-so than anyone else in his political life. Frank’s two contemporaries, Richard Wright and Langston Hughes, definitely had communist leanings.
Is it really all that difficult to see Barack Obama’s true colors and beliefs?
We will provide further proof in upcoming articles over the next several days…stay tuned.
