Obama FINALLY Admits Communist Connection

By: Rk


The Mainstream media has been attacking Jerome Corsi’s book, The Obama Nation. I wonder if any of them actually tried to investigate any of the facts. Doubtful. But here is a fact Senator Obama confirms. In the midst of his massive rebuttal to the book, Senator Obama ADMITS his close relationship with Frank Marshall Davis. Of course, he doesn't mention the part about Davis being a Bigshot in the Communist Party of the US. Read all about it in the report below from Accuracy in Media:

Media Abet Communist Cover-Up

The cover-up is now so blatant that an article that is generally sympathetic to Davis has been edited by the Obama campaign in order to delete references to Davis’s CPUSA activities.

In a surprising admission, Barack Obama’s 40-page so-called “rebuttal” to Jerome Corsi’s book, The Obama Nation, acknowledges for the first time that the senator once had a personal relationship with identified Communist Party USA (CPUSA) member Frank Marshall Davis, a key high-level operative in a Soviet-sponsored network in Hawaii.

But the 40-page report, advertised and sold to the media as a refutation of Corsi’s “lies,” doesn’t identify Davis as a hard-core communist and it dishonestly edits an article about Davis to eliminate references to his admitted involvement in CPUSA activities and make the black revolutionary writer and “poet” look like a civil rights activist.

In fact, Davis was a secret CPUSA member who continued his involvement in the CPUSA or its front activities into the 1970s, when he met Obama. At this time, Davis was still involved with a CPUSA front organization, the American Committee for Protection of Foreign Born, dedicated to keeping foreign communists such as his friend and associate labor leader Harry Bridges from being deported from the U.S.

Corsi’s book devotes part of chapter three, “Black Rage, Drugs, and a Communist Mentor,” to Davis. He credits our work in the text and footnotes.

An AP story refused to identify Davis as a CPUSA member and described him only as a “left-leaning” poet and journalist.

For his part, Davis appeared before the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee in 1956, taking the Fifth Amendment when asked about his CPUSA activities. His lawyer was Harriet Bouslog, another CPUSA member.

In 1982 testimony, FBI assistant director for intelligence Edward J. O’Malley testified that the CPUSA has been “one of the most loyal and pro-Soviet Communist Parties in the world and has unfalteringly accepted Soviet direction and funding over the years.”

Selective Editing

The Obama report admits that the mysterious “Frank,” who was referred to several times in Obama’s 1995 book, Dreams From My Father, was in fact Frank Marshall Davis—something AIM confirmed back in February.

In the Takara article in the Western Journal of Black Studies, is a quote of Davis’s own incriminating words, in which he says:

“From now on I knew I would be described as a Communist but frankly I had reached the stage where I didn’t give a damn. Too many people I respected as Freedom Fighters were listed as Red for me to fear name calling.”

Davis In Hawaii

On the recommendation of two secret CPUSA members, Paul Robeson and labor leader Harry Bridges, Davis moved to Hawaii in 1948, where he would later become a member of what an official inquiry described as a secret communist underground organization.

Corsi’s book, which is supposedly “Unfit for Publication,” according to the Obama campaign, cites the congressional hearings and documents which identify Davis as a CPUSA member. It also quotes instances from Obama’s own book, Dreams From My Father, in which Obama talks about “Frank” giving him advice about various matters. For example, he tells Obama that blacks have a reason to hate whites.

Takara’s article, written in 2002, acknowledges Davis’s deep involvement in communist activities.

The Truth Be Told

So here we have it: in an article cited by the Obama report as authoritative about Davis, he is acknowledged to have been a CPUSA member. But the Obama report doesn’t mention this key piece ofinformation.

Which raises the question that we have asked on numerous occasions: why are Obama and his followers in the media ignoring his documented relationship with a CPUSA member?
