I regard it as obvious that Obama is a Marxist. To avoid this conclusion requires culpable blindness.

principal ‘actors’ in Obama’s upbringing and closest relationships, a summary

Grandparents & Unitarianism -
Obama’s white relations and his family background:

Obama had a very insecure home life. Obama’s father (Muslim), his mother’s first husband, left their home in Hawaii when Obama was about 2 years old. Between the age of about 5 to 10 years old, Obama had an Indonesian Muslim step-father, who had left by the time Obama was 10. Thereafter, Obama was parked with his American (maternal) grandparents. Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was a sociology type who liked to move around.

His mother and grandparents, who primarily raised him, were from a Unitarian background. Unitarianism is a sort of Christian sect that does not believe Jesus is god, but is a prophet. Unitarianism regards regular Christianist groups as polytheist, views fairly congruent with some Islamic inclinations. These congregations were regarded as heavily left-leaning.

The chosen church of Obama’s grandparents was nicknamed “The Little Red Church on the Hill”. This church apparently acquired this label because it held “well-publicized debates and forums on such controversial subjects as the admission of ‘Red China' to the United Nations....” [Quoted from East Shore Unitarian Church website - page no longer available.]

Obama later went back to Hawaii to bury his granny in the local Unitarian church there.

Frank Marshall Davis [1905-1987]

Davis is regarded by Obama as Obama’s mentor while he was young. Obama’s grandfather Stanley Armour Dunham arranged/approved Obama's mentorship by Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis. They were close friends and drinking buddies.

Davis was a proven card-carrying member of the Communist Party, the FBI having a 600-page file on Davis’s activities with the CPUSA (Communist Party of the USA). Obama also was generally drawn to Marxists.

Liberation theology, including Jeremiah Wright’s church

Jeremiah Wright is a follower of James Cone.
For over twenty years, Obama has spoken of Jeremiah Wright as his mentor and moral compass.

Liberation theology is, in fact, ‘Marxism’ hiding in Christian semantics. That is, liberation theology is not Christianity. Further, Obama’s ‘church’ follows a particular form of liberation theology called ‘Black liberation theology’. This is an overtly and violently racist creed.

“If God is not for us against the whites...we had better kill him.”

Popes, including the current one, have spoken out, warning against liberation theology. For instance, Pope Benedict XVI, in 1984 when still Cardinal Ratzinger, wrote Instruction on certain aspects of the “theology of liberation”. He also wrote a ‘private’ document that precedes Instruction.

Patronage by Ayers and Dohrn

Both William [Bill] Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn are Communists. Ayers ghost-wrote Barack Obama’s book, Dreams from my father.

Obama’s racial background

Obama claims that his name ‘Hussein’ is sourced from his Kenyan grandfather. And yet, Obama continually promotes himself as bridging gaps between black and white and everything else! Why does he see such gaps? He claims to understand Islamics yet promotes himself as a ‘Christian’, while minimising his contact in the past with Islam.

Obama is not an African-American, but is half Kenyan and half white American. However, he has strongly identified himself as a black American, to the extent of joining a church that is determinedly black and which appears to have black Islam links, such as Farrakan.

See also Obarmy and religion - an interview, here is a small portion:

“[...] We need to take faith seriously not simply to block the religious right but to engage all persons of faith in the larger project of American renewal.” [Quoted from, p.8]

obama and kenya

Raila Odinga is the politician currently disputing elections in Kenya.

“[...] Raila Odinga has, in his own words, a "close personal friendship" with Barrack Hussein Obama Junior.

“When Obama went to Kenya in August of 2006, he was hosted by Raila and spoke in praise of him at rallies in Nairobi:” [Quoted from]


“The Evangelical Alliance of Kenya has posted on its website a photograph copy of a Memorandum of Understanding, dated and signed on August 29, 2007, between Raila Odinga and Shiekh Abdullah Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum of Kenya.

“It pledges the support of Kenyan Moslems for Raila's election. In return, as President of Kenya, Raila agrees to 14 actions, listed a) through n) on page two. Read them all, and be sure you're sitting down. Here's a sample:

“b) Within 6 months re-write the Constitution of Kenya to recognize Shariah as the only true law sanctioned by the Holy Quran for Muslim declared regions.

“c) With immediate effect dismiss the Commissioner of Police who has allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists to oppress the Kenyan Muslim community.

“g) Within one year facilitate the establishment of a Shariah court in every Kenyan divisional headquarters. [Note: everywhere in Kenya, not just in "Muslim declared regions."] ”

Odinga and Obama both have roots in the Luo tribe.

From CIA, on Kenya:

“Ethnic groups:
Kikuyu 22%, Luhya 14%, Luo 13%, Kalenjin 12%, Kamba 11%, Kisii 6%, Meru 6%, other African 15%, non-African (Asian, European, and Arab) 1%”

Protestant 45%, Roman Catholic 33%, Muslim 10%, indigenous beliefs 10%, other 2%
note: a large majority of Kenyans are Christian, but estimates for the percentage of the population that adheres to Islam or indigenous beliefs vary widely”


obama’s ‘church’

The head and founder of the Church was Pastor Wright, but he was replaced in Spring 2008 by a younger minister, Rev. Moss.

Barack Obama has now [31 June 2008] ‘left’ his church of twenty years involvement after a guest preacher gave a racist rant against Obama’s Democrat nomination opponent, Hilary Clinton.

This is the church web site.

“We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian... Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain "true to our native land," the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community.”

“This week, Obama was forced to repudiate Black Muslim Louis ("Judaism is a gutter religion") Farrakhan, but has refused to repudiate his pastor and leave his racist church, Trinity United Church of Christ. Inquiring minds, of all parties, want to know why he continues to support racism.”

“ Pastor Wright called Calypso Louie [Farrakan] one of the "giants of the African American religious experience." The publication gave Louie the 2007’s "Lifetime Achievement Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. Trumpeter Award "for his contributions to the African American community". Among others, Congresswoman Maxine Waters received an award.

“In February, 1996, Louis did a five-week tour of the world’s most despotic nations. In Iran, he was reported to have said "You can quote me: God will destroy America by the hands of Muslims...God will not give Japan or Europe the honor of bringing down the United States; this is an honor God will bestow upon Muslims." He is not only a nut case but also a traitor to the nation that provided him the opportunity to live in regal splendor on his 77-acre country estate in addition to two posh Chicago homes! Therefore, he is also an ingrate.

“Pastor Wright accompanied Farrakhan on his trek to visit Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi and other Muslim middle east terrorists and Dr. Wright candidly said, "When [Obama’s] enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli...with Farrakhan, a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell." Well, I think all Obama’s financial support should dry up quicker than that! In 1996, Louis also visited with Yasser Arafat, master terrorist, Saddam Hussein, terrorist monster and other terrorist renegades.

“Question: "Senator [Obama], will you disassociate yourself from an obvious traitor, and since the visiting party illegally sought to negotiate with foreign powers will you seek congressional hearings to inquire further into their illegal and seditious activities?"
Follow-up: "If not, why not?” [Quoted from]

Why is the left-wing fossil media not informing you of these issues? Is it political correctness?

Why is the right-wing fossil media straining every sinew to promote Obama? Is it Brer Rabbit saying, “Anything but throw me into the bramble bushes” because they know that Obama is much easier to defeat than Clinton?

attack allies, appease enemies, abandon friends-
obama and his ‘tough’ foreign ‘policy’

Obama is extremely naive and lacking in judgement.

He is trying to pretend that he’s ‘tougher’ where he is, in fact, both dishonest and naive.

”If we start now, all of our combat brigades should be out of Iraq by the end of next year.”
From a speech made on 12 September, 2007, so “the end of next year” is the end of 2008.
[Quoted from]

So Obama is, in fact, promoting capitulation to the terrorists and abandonment of the Iraqi people.

In his attempts to attack Republicans and to appease the extreme left, this inexperienced rabble rouser strains hard to distinguish himself from more able and experienced politicians.

Then O’Bomber rails against Iraq, telling us what he will do once his Iraq policy fails:

“[...] We both have said that we need to have a strike force that can take out potential terrorist bases that get set up in Iraq.” [Quoted from California Democrat debate, January 2008] [1]

The Iraq action is a very necessary and increasingly successful action bringing advance and democracy to the socialist hell established by Madsam [2]. But of course, after screwing up Iraq, the Barmy strategist does have a cunning plan - to invade Pakistan!

“ "I understand that President Musharraf has his own challenges. But let me make this clear,'' Obama said. "If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and (Pakistani) President (Pervez) Musharraf will not act, we will.”'

As if that varies one jot from the Bush policy, with the exception that Bush has the sense to pursue it quietly and diplomatically rather than make incendiary threats against Musharraf. Musharraf has plenty enough problems with extremists attempting to destabilise the Pakistan government and to assassinate Musharraf.

Is that what Obama actually wants? where do Obama’s real loyalties lie?

Also 2007
“In the CNN-YouTube debate, Obama -- asked if he would meet with the leaders of Cuba, Syria, Venezuela, Iran and North Korea in his first year as president "without precondition" -- blurted yes.

“Should he get the nomination, imagine an ad twinning photos of Obama and Fidel, Hugo Chavez, Kim Jong-Il and Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, titled, "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner at Barack's House?”

So to summarise the Obama ‘strategy’, it amounts to

  • abandon our friends in Iraq,
  • attack our allies in Pakistan, and
  • appease our enemies in Iran.

Why the wish to cosy up to Islamic and socialist dictators? Why isn’t the fossil media probing this chancer?

Note that Obama identifies himself as ‘a black American’ and has deep roots in Islam and Unitarianism. See obama’s ’church’ and notes on obama and religion for much more detail.


milking emotion and ignorance

Note that Obama is drawing his main support from black voters, the soggy-minded white middle classes and inexperienced, emotional youths.

the immaturity of the obaabaaabarmy army made manifest in ‘song’

“I know that Obama has something that experience can not give you. That something is a gift from God. He touches not only the spirit of Black America, but he touches the spirit of every one who has the desire to see a world that truly has a neighborly sense of being. Where we don’t judge greatness by those on the top, but we judge it by those on the bottom.”

And much more similar maudlin exudate to cloy your day.
