I would like to preface this article by saying that if you are a far left liberal or are already in the tank for Obama do not bother reading this article. If I had proof that Obama tortures puppies, you would still vote for him. Over the past year, I have had numerous conversations concerning the election and my conclusions are that many people who are voting for Obama are dangerously uneducated. I can’t put all the blame on these people; namely because you will not exactly find what I am about to tell you on the 10 o’clock news. We have all heard about Rev. Wright, Tony Rezko, and Father Pfleger so I won’t rehash that here. I am going to analyze three associations of Obama that nobody wants to talk about, most of all, the Messiah himself.
1) Little Barry and the Communist
Why don’t we know much about Obama prior to his college years? Unlike John McCain, who at the Republican National Convention had many people from his past praise him, we really don’t know anybody from Obama’s past. We know that he grew up in Indonesia and Hawaii in a secular/agnostic/atheist household, yet he found Jesus when it was convenient to promote his career. After all, he has wanted to be President since Kindergarten and everyone knows you can’t be president unless you pander to those crazy church people that believe in more than just the religion of global warming. Back to the point. While living in Hawaii, Obama had a most peculiar mentor. In his book, “Dreams from my Father”, Obama refers to him simply as Frank, but has since confirmed that he is Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the US Communist Party. Could this be just another untoward relationship like Rev. Wright? It wouldn’t seem so as Obama almost lovingly wrote the following, “It made me smile, thinking back on Frank and his old Black Power, dashiki self. In some ways he was as incurable as my mother, as certain in his faith, living in the same sixties time warp that Hawaii had created.” Frank Marshall Davis was also a good friend of Obama’s maternal grandfather and the US Communist Party has unofficially endorsed Obama. On their website, they say, “Barrack Obama’s campaign has so far generated the most excitement, attracted the most votes, most volunteers and the most money. We think the basic reason for this is that his campaign has the clearest message of unity and progressive change, while having a real possibility for victory in November.”
CPUSA 2008 Electoral Policy
While Obama may not be quoting Karl Marx yet, the communists realize that he’s still young and there is much hope. Obama has also been endorsed by the terrorist organization Hamas. Granted, Obama can’t control which radical organizations endorse him, but the fact that they do shows me that they think he would best help further their causes.
Now we will never know the true influence that the communist Davis had on Obama, but don’t you think that this would give someone pause since we spent the second half of the 20th century fighting communism? Apparently, the main stream media doesn’t think so. I’ll bet 99.9% of voters in the country have never heard of Frank Marshall Davis. If this was a McCain associate, nearly all of us would know his name. We will leave the mainstream media Obama love fest for another time as it’s pretty blatant these days and not up for much debate.
2) The “Guy in the Neighborhood”
So you may ask yourself, what exactly did Obama do as a community organizer other than to pad his resume? He spent other people’s money and joined a racist church so that he could have “church cred” with his constituents. He also met an interesting character named William Ayers, the unrepentant domestic terrorist bomber. Obama is claiming he didn’t know about Ayers previous indiscretions and he has said that he was only 8 years old at the time of the bombing. That is not the point. At some time he did know about Ayers terrorist past and yet he continued to meet with Ayers to dole out Walter Annenberg’s $50 million grant. Oddly enough, Annenberg was a Republican and his wife has endorsed McCain. I guess she didn’t like how Obama and Ayers spent that $50 million. Maybe she’s not happy that Obama started his political career in Ayers living room either. Ayers was actually pictured in a 2001 Chicago magazine article stepping on the American flag. He was quoted in the New York Times prior to 9/11 saying that the notion of the United States as a just and fair and decent place “makes me want to puke.” He has also said that he and his wife didn’t do enough during their bombing years. Obama has recently condemned Ayers actions in the 60’s. The fact remains, that Obama knowingly associated with an unrepentant terrorist and in response to all the questioning, he described Ayers as, “a guy who lives in my neighborhood,” but “not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis.” Regular basis or not, the only ideas that Ayers and Obama should be sharing are on tougher sentencing laws for domestic terrorists. If I’m ever in trouble I want Ayers lawyer. I think I know who the Guantanamo inmates want to win the election; it is the guy that hangs around with their kind. Who knows, maybe in an Obama administration they will actually be able to vote.
3) Nation of Islam
The Nation of Islam (NOI) is a black muslim group that was founded by Elijah Muhammed and is currently headed up by Louis Farrakhan. NOI is an anti-semetic, racist perversion of traditional Islamic teachings. Obama is not a member of the NOI as suggested by some, however, he has been endorsed by the racist Farrakhan and he has hired NOI members to be a part of his political campaigns. Cynthia Miller served as the treasurer of Obama’s senate campaign. He also hired Jennifer Mason as Director of Constituent Services. Both are Nation of Islam members.
EXCLUSIVE – Obama’s Nation of Islam Staffers
This is a group that has accused Jewish doctors of injecting black people with AIDS. The group also teaches that black people are the original humans and that whites are “potential humans”. It just so happens that the Nation of Islam is headquartered in Chicago and Farrakhan lives in Obama’s neighborhood. Furthermore, he recently referred to Obama as the Messiah.
The fact that Obama would hire important people into his campaign with such radical views is stunning! If he should win the presidency, I will be very interested to see how he fills out his cabinet with such a poor track record of judging his associations.
The reason I titled this article Buyer’s Remorse is because, should he win, that’s precisely what many people will be feeling over the next four years after they’ve pulled the lever for this shape shifter. It’s the same feeling you get when you buy a beautiful house only to find out that it was built using shoddy construction and has a crumbling foundation. With Obama, everything looks great on the surface. He’s got the image, the catchy taglines, Hollywood endorsements, and the speeches, so it’s easy to see why an uninformed voter could come under his spell. What lies beneath the façade, his foundation, is what should concern every American. His associations with communists, socialists, convicted felons, racist pastors, radical religious organizations, and terrorists should not be ignored, because it is a glimpse of what is to come. These associations are not coincidental, they are a very clear indication that Obama has very poor judgment and is willing to be led around by radicals. This country needs to sober up and take the Obama goggles off! This is a very dangerous man and not someone we should even trust the job of dog catcher to. We are in very serious times and we do not need an unknown quantity at the helm. Many have swooned over Obama’s masterful speeches, so I will leave you with this warning:
…the power which has always started the greatest religious and political avalanches in history rolling has from time to immemorial been the magic of power of the spoken word, and that alone. Particularly the broad masses of the people can be moved only by the power of speech.
