No ObamaNation Part 3: Another Marx brother by Mark Alexander
According to my colleague, Cliff Kincaid, Accuracy in Media editor and president of the UN watchdog group America's Survival, Obama was mentored for most of his formative years by black radical Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA member. Obama had "a close relationship, almost like a son, with Davis," writes Kincaid.
In his book, Dreams from My Father, Obama refers to "Frank" repeatedly, and said that Davis "and his old Black Power dashiki self" was still mentoring him as late as 1979, when he was a student in California. Davis warned Obama that college would give him "an advanced degree in compromise" and not to "start believing what they tell you about equal opportunity and the American way and all that s**t."
Kincaid notes that a CPUSA devotee recently said of Obama's political fortunes, "Marx once compared revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface. This is the old revolutionary 'mole,' not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through."
Obama's record speaks for itself. In 2006, Senator Obama campaigned for the re-election of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who openly lists his party affiliation as "Socialist." Sanders applauded freshman Sen. Obama as "one of the great leaders of the United States Senate," and understandably so. Last year, National Journal, which rates members of Congress strictly by their voting records, ranked Obama as the single most liberal member of the Senate---a remarkable "achievement," given the Socialist bona fides of the aforementioned Sanders.
When questioned why he refuses to wear an American flag on his lapel, Obama said, "I won't wear it on my chest. It's a substitute for... true patriotism. You show your patriotism by being true to our values and ideals."
No doubt, the true colors of Obama's "values and ideals" are bright red.
