Paul G. Kengor wrote an interesting book entitled “The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor”. He wrote of it in a column for Western Journalism (February 24, 2015).
“Frank Marshall Davis (1905-87) was a hardcore communist, an actual card-carrying member of Communist Party USA (CPUSA), who spent time with a young Barack Obama throughout the 1970s, right up until the moment Obama left Hawaii for Occidental College in 1979. As we know from Davis’ declassified 600-page FBI file (and other sources), his Party card number was 47544.
“Frank Marshall Davis (met) a young Barack Obama in 1970, introduced by Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Dunham, for the purpose of mentoring. The boy’s grandfather felt that the fatherless boy was in need of a black-male role model. For that, Dunham chose one of the most politically radical figures in all of Hawaii. He introduced the two in the fall of 1970. Dawna Weatherly-Williams, who knew Davis so well that she called him ‘Daddy’, was present the first time Obama and Davis met. She described the relationship as very influential, with Davis impacting Obama on ‘social justice’, on ‘life’, on ‘what’s important’, on no less than ‘how to use’ his ‘heart’ and ‘mind’.”
Our President was “mentored” by a well-known communist. He went on to live his life with several other America-hating communists. He sympathizes with Islamofascists who also hate America.
What is so difficult about this situation for Americans to understand?
