Obama admits influenced by her mother- a communist sympathizer


Barack Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham

Excerpt from page 1...

"Naivete" is a euphemism for Ann Dunham's motivation. Friends describe her as a "fellow traveler", that is, a communist sympathizer, from her youth, according to a March 27, 2007, Chicago Tribune report.

Wichterman questioned the existence of God.
"I had them read 'The Communist Manifesto,' and the parents went nuts," said Wichterman.

"The kids started questioning things that their folks thought shouldn't be questioned -- religion, politics, parental authority," said John Hunt, a classmate. "And a lot of parents didn't like that, and they tried to get them [Wichterman and Foubert] fired."

The Dunhams did not join the uproar. Madelyn and Stanley shed their Methodist and Baptist upbringing and began attending Sunday services at the East Shore Unitarian Church in nearby Bellevue.,0,1310554.story?page=3
