Who is the Man behind Obama... Frank Marshall Davis A man we all need to know.
One of Obama's most mentioned mentors a man that goes by" Frank" in Obama's "Dreams From my Father" is a person we all need to know. A man mentioned 22 times in his book...
Frank Marshall Davis was a Radical Communist. A man so radical that the FBI had a 600 page dossier on him and his activities. Activities and views so wildly radical
that he was considered a National Security threat and should hostilities erupt with Russia he was to be subject to arrest immediately. This card carrying Communist, btw his number was
47544, was an Editor in Chief for a major Communist Newspaper..the Atlanta Daily World. His semi-weekly columns often included words like "Change" and Fundamental Transformation" words we have all heard before.
Not surprisingly some of Davis's friends where Vernon Jarrett father in law of Valerie Jarrett Obama's closest adviser.
Also it is interesting to note that Davis moved to Hawaii and became part of the ILWU and became friends with Jack Hall a man arrested for trying to overthrow the United States Government. The ILWU controlled the Honolulu Record and the ILWU Book Club. Among the authors made available through the ILWU Book Club were Saul Alinsky, Howard Fast, Philip S. Foner, Carl Marzani and Victor Perlo. All known radicals and threats to the US with several being KGB agents.
Prof Gerald Horne stated in 2007 that "At some point in the future, a teacher will add to her syllabus Barack’s memoir and instruct her students to read it alongside Frank Marshall Davis’ equally affecting memoir...when that day comes...a future student will ...examine critically the Frankenstein monsters that US imperialism created in order to subdue Communist parties...
It is not clear exactly when Davis met Obama but it is clear sometime in the 70's while Obama was "running with the Radicals" in College he met Frank Marshall Davis and that meeting and the relationship that it created meant a lot to Obama... Enough so that Obama wrote often about him in his book.
It is important to remember the Parents from which Obama comes from. His Communist roots are deep. His Radical friends are many and his Collectivist views are clearly explained once you know where he came from and who he was taught by.
