This really is becoming rather amusing to watch as the right wing smear machine searches frantically for ways to make Obama out to be either a communist or a fascist. You want proof? Baby, they got proof. Cliff Kincaid has all the evidence you need. Get this: when Obama lived in Hawaii during his preteen and teen years he recalls being visited by a man named Frank, a black poet who had once hung out with Langston Hughes in Chicago. And they think that man was Frank Marshall Davis, who was outed as a commie by Joseph McCarthy in the 50s.
What? You need more evidence that Obama is a commie? Damn, you people are skeptical. Well take this, you pagan secular humanist Jew-loving socialists: Lisa Schiffren knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that Obama is a commie because she knows lots of mixed race couples and mixed race couples are always communists:
Obama and I are roughly the same age. I grew up in liberal circles in New York City — a place to which people who wished to rebel against their upbringings had gravitated for generations. And yet, all of my mixed race, black/white classmates throughout my youth, some of whom I am still in contact with, were the product of very culturally specific unions. They were always the offspring of a white mother, (in my circles, she was usually Jewish, but elsewhere not necessarily) and usually a highly educated black father. And how had these two come together at a time when it was neither natural nor easy for such relationships to flourish? Always through politics. No, not the young Republicans. Usually the Communist Youth League. Or maybe a different arm of the CPUSA. But, for a white woman to marry a black man in 1958, or 60, there was almost inevitably a connection to explicit Communist politics.
Game, set and match, Obama, you commie pinko! But wait, she’s not done yet:
Political correctness was invented precisely to prevent the mainstream liberal media from persuing the questions which might arise about how Senator Obama’s mother, from Kansas, came to marry an African graduate student. Love? Sure, why not? But what else was going on around them that made it feasible? Before readers level cheap accusations of racism — let’s recall that the very question of interracial marriage only became a big issue later in the 1960s. The notion of a large group of mixed race Americans became an issue during and after the Vietnam War. Even the civil-rights movement kept this culturally explosive matter at arm’s distance.
And therefore…Stalin himself was the one who set up Obama’s parents, with the explicit goal of creating a charismatic communist son who would one day take over the United States and bring back the Glorious Revolution. Christ. This may be the most ridiculous political smear campaign I have ever seen.
