Note: This is Part 2 of a two-part review of the film “Dreams from My Real Father.” Read Part 1.
It was the culmination of an American socialist movement that Frank Marshall Davis nurtured in Chicago and Hawaii and has been quietly infiltrating into the U.S. economy, universities and media for decades. … To understand Obama’s plans for America, look no further than communist Frank Marshall Davis.
Gilbert told WND that because of the “fairy tale” told by Obama, “regular American folks perceived Obama as a nice man with an inspiring family story.” However, “In reality, Barack Obama have a deeply disturbing family background, which he intentionally hid to obscure a Marxist political foundation.”
On March 3, 1964, Barack Obama, Sr. applied for an extension of his visa – which granted his part of the deal for his sham marriage to Ann – to be allowed to get his Ph.D. from Harvard. The film’s Obama impersonator says, “Obama’s frequent lessons in politics mostly involved Karl Marx and the Communist Manifesto. Frank explained, all history is class struggle between the oppressors and the oppressed. Frank lectured that America’s corporate system was designed to benefit the rich and to keep the poor down. The wealthy in our era are the new oppressors, he’d say. People with jobs are oppressed. The capitalist system must be replaced with socialism. Frank liked to brag how he helped the communist-controlled union ILWU take over the Democratic Party and take power in Hawaii and never give it up. He’d say, One man … one vote … one time only. And then Frank would laugh.”
To better understand Obama’s venal anti-Americanism and his liberal fascist and Marxist worldview, consider that Frank once said in an interview: “Racism was almost an invention of the United States. It served as a model for ‘der Fuhrer’ in Germany.” Davis taught Obama that “the white man held fundamental power over me because of his wealth. That communism was the best way to neuter the white man. Take away his money, and therefore his power. Hitler incidentally, sent some of his emissaries over here to observe in the South.” That’s how Obama learned that racial and class politics were the same.
In another lecture, Davis mentioned “Militantly Black, Malcolm X and the Black Panthers.” The Obama impersonator said, “My father had me read the master of black rage, Malcolm X, who said, there will come a time where there’s got to be a change. People in power have misused it and now there has to be a change and a better world has to be built, and the only way that it will be built is with extreme methods. I’d tell gramps I had homework,” recited the Obama impersonator, “but I really sit in my room reading book after book on Malcolm.”
“My world became permanently altered by Frank Marshall Davis as I came to see the world through his eyes,. This personal transformation led to an identity crisis. I’d been robbed of my birthright,” intones the Obama impersonator. “The African name I had been given – Barack Hussein Obama II – wasn’t me. Rightfully I was Frank Marshall David Jr., son of the great communist writer and poet. I told my father that I wanted to change my name, but he said, White folks are more accepting of Africans than they are of American Negroes. You’ll get a lot further with ‘my daddy’s from Kenya.’ This was hard to understand. Growing up in multi-racial Hawaii and at Punahou School, I’d never experienced racism … ever. Eventually, I came to embrace the myth – Frank Marshall Davis was the ideological father of all that would become of my thinking, my plans and politics. That’s all that mattered.”
In the movie the Obama impersonator summed up the totalizing influence of his real father, Communist Frank Marshall Davis: “My mission in life,” says the Obama narrator, “is to fulfill the dreams of my ‘ideological father’ – to replace capitalism with communism.” After four years as president of the United States, let’s examine if President Obama is fulfilling the dreams of his real communist father.
Under the Obama administration, over 100 million Americans are now on welfare. This was done on purpose. In 1983, when Obama attended Columbia and Marxists’ May 19th conferences throughout New York, he was influenced by professors like Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven with their “crisis strategy” of economic sabotage to collapse capitalism by forcing more and more people onto welfare. During that same time in New York, he met and socialized with terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who realized Obama’s value to their movement, and in the Chicagoland of Frank Marshall Davis, he learned and mastered the Saul Alinsky strategies of “community organization” – or more precisely, “community agitation.”
Gilbert’s movie was revelatory in exposing how Obama’s tactics differed from Ayers and Dohrn in that external bombs would no longer be required to destroy America from the outside as their terrorist group, the Weather Underground, had done. Obama and his progressive legions – including ex-green czar communist Van Jones, David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, Rahm Emmanuel and Cass Sunstein – would put on a suit and tie and with their Ivy-League degrees burrow their way deeply into the system, become part of the system and, once in power, destroy America from within by deconstructing all of her most sacred institutions – God, the Constitution, capitalism, freedom, liberty, Natural Law, love of Israel and American exceptionalism – and replace them with class warfare, socialism, Marxism, anti-Semitism and liberal fascism.
