Obama – The Manchurian Candidate’s Troubling UnAmerican Roots

A Composite of Marxism, pan-Islamic Terrorism, and Black Nationalism

Obama was born in Honolulu in 1961,  ( link )

His birth father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. was a Muslim bureaucrat from Kenya.  ( link – 41k -)  Before marrying his son’s mother Ann Dunham, Hussein Obama, Sr. was married to a woman from Kenya who had seven children.  All the relatives of Barry’s father were very devout Muslims”   ( link quoting “Dreams of My Father.”)

Obama’s mother Stanley Ann Dunham Soetoro was a Marxist who raised Obama to have an anti-capitalist, anti-American view of the world.  (link )  She has been described by her friends as “a fellow traveler…” meaning a communist sympathizer. [10]
In an interview, Barack Obama referred to his mother as “the dominant figure in my formative years… The values she taught me continue to be my touchstone when it comes to how I go about the world of politics.”  (en.metapedia.org/wiki/Stanley_Ann_Dunham)

In terms of race and international relations, contemporary Marxism teaches that whites (i.e., the greedy capitalists) “exploit” blacks (the working class).

Being born in Hawaii to a black father and white mother, when Obama was 2 years old, he saw his black father Barack Obama Sr.leave the family and move back to his African first wife in Kenya, leaving Obama to be raised without a father figure. ( link ) Thereafter, Obama always felt a void, the need for a father figure with whom he could identify.  (VDARE.COM- link )

Four years later, his mother married an Indonesian man, Lolo Soetoro, who moved his new wife and stepson to Jakarta. ( link ) When his mother remarried, Obama’s Indonesian step-father Lolo Soetoro, a Muslim, would (in 1971) occasionally take his stepson “Barry” to Friday prayers at the mosque. ( link ) By his own admission, “In Indonesia, I had spent two years at a Muslim school,” ( http://www.examiner.com/a-534540, quoting “Dreams of My Father.”)   Amiris now the manager of the Bank Mandiri, Jakarta, recently said, “Barry was previously quite religious in Islam.”   ( link quoting “Dreams of My Father.”)

Upon Dunham’s divorce from Lolo she  sent 10-year-old Barack to live with her parents in Honolulu, while she and his half-sister stayed in Indonesia.  ( link ) In 1972 Barry Soetoro is enrolled in the fifth grade at [Hawaii’s] prestigious Punahou School  and begins his transformation to Barack Hussein Obama.   According to classmate Rony Amiris young Barry was a very devout Muslim.  Amir said, “Barry was . . . quite religious in Islam.”  ( link quoting “Dreams of My Father.”)

While at Punahou School, Obama turns into a disenchanted teenage rebel,  experimenting with cocaine and marijuana.  Obama admits in “Dreams” that during high school he  frequently smoked marijuana, drank alcohol, even used cocaine occasionally.  ( link quoting “Dreams of My Father.”)

Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where, at some point in time, he developed a close relationship with Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA).   Davis treated Obama almost like a son, with Davis, reading him his “poetry” and giving Obama advice on his career path.

In 1979 Obama entered Occidental College in California.  “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully.  The more politically active black students.  The foreign students.  The Chicanos.  The Marxist professors and structural feminists.”  “To admit our doubt and confusion to whites, to open up our psyches to general examination by those who had caused so much of the damage in the first place, seemed ludicrous, itself an expression of self-hatred,” he wrote.  ( link quoting “Dreams of My Father.”)

In 1982 Obama transferred to Columbia University in New York.  “I stopped getting high. . . ,”  he wrote in “Dreams.”  He went to the Marxist-Socialist conferences at Cooper Union and African cultural fairs in Brooklyn and started lecturing his relatives until they worried he’d become “one of those freaks you see on the streets around here.”   During college, Obama disapproved of what he called other “half-breeds” who gravitated toward whites instead of blacks.  ( link quoting “Dreams of My Father.”)

“Barack Obama had just graduated from Columbia and was looking for a job.  Some white leftists were looking for someone who could recruit in a black neighborhood in the south side of Chicago.  [P] Obama answered a help-wanted ad for a position as a community organizer for the Developing Communities Project (DCP) of the Calumet Community Religious Conference (CCRC) in Chicago.  Obama was 24 years old, unmarried, very accustomed to a vagabond existence, and according to his memoir, searching for a genuine African-American community.  Both the CCRC and the DCP were built on the [Saul] Alinsky model of community agitation, wherein paid organizers learned how to “rub raw the sores of discontent,” in Alinsky’s words.  The agitator’s job, according to Alinsky, is first to bring folks to the “realization” that they are indeed miserable, that their misery is the fault of unresponsive governments or greedy corporations, then help them to bond together to demand what they deserve, and to make such an almighty stink that the dastardly governments and corporations will see imminent “self-interest” in granting whatever it is that will cause the harassment to cease. [P]  In these methods, euphemistically labeled “community organizing,” Obama had a four-year education, which he often says was the best education he ever got anywhere.”  ( link ; cf. Alinsky, Rules for Radicals.)

“Saul Alinsky died in 1972. He was a Marxist grassroots organizer who spent much of his life organizing rent strikes and protesting conditions of the poor in Chicago in the 1930s.”  ( link “Alinsky saw the already formed church communities as being the perfect springboards for agitation and creating bonds for demanding goods and services. ” ( link)

“When Obama first undertook his agitating work in Chicago’s South Side poor neighborhoods, he was un-churched.  Yet his office was in a Church and most of the folks he needed to agitate and organize were Church people — pastors and congregants — who took their churches and their church-going very seriously.”  Although Obama was then an agnostic, he finally relented and joined a church.  ( link )

In 1988, Obama joined the congregation of Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ.  In the spirit of Saul Alinsky, Obama avoided the mainstream churches.  Instead, “Obama chose Trinity United. He picked Jeremiah Wright. Obama writes in his autobiography that on the day he chose this church, he felt the spirit of black memory and history moving through Wright, and “felt for the first time how that spirit carried within it, nascent, incomplete, the possibility of moving beyond our narrow dreams.'”  ( link )

Thus, Obama finally found the father figure he had been seeking in the church’s black Pastor Reverend Wright. .  ( link ) Wright was a black nationalist who “sought to build his church on the black theology of liberation, the Marxist ideology introduced in 1968 by Rev. James Cone of New York.”  ( link )

Like Obama, Wright was not only a Marxist, but  a former Muslim. ( link ). In fact Wright boasted that his “Master’s Degree from the University of Chicago’s Divinity School was in the area of Islam in West Africa during the 19th Century — when the trans-Atlantic Slave Trade was at its zenith.”  ( link )

As later seen, Wright was also allied with Louis Farrakhan leader of the Nation of Islam.  Wright once traveled to Libya with black supremacist Louis Farrakhan to meet with terrorist leader Muammar Qaddafi.  (link )   In 2007, Wright honored Farrakhan as Trinity Church’s “man of the year.”   (link ) In his April 29, 2008 speech to the Wright’s security was provided by bodyguards from Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam.  ( link )

In 1991 Obama formally joined Wright’s church, being required to pledge allegiance to the “Black Value System” (an allegiance greater than any owed to “white” America).  ( link ) Wright became Obama’s “spiritual mentor”.  Wright’s phrase “the Audacity of Hope” meant so much to Obama that it gave Obama the title for his next book.  Obama’s book-on-tape specifically mentions the “Black Value System” which he admittedly perused at the outset of his involvement.

Consistent with the foregoing is Wright’s theory of a separate Black Learning System.  As he recently expressed, blacks tend to be “right brained, subject oriented in their learning style.Right brain that means creative and intuitive. Subject oriented means they learn from a subject, not an object. They learn from a person.”  In contrast, white “children have a left brained cognitive object oriented learning style and the entire educational learning system in the United States of America.  . . .  Left brain is logical and analytical.  Object oriented means the student learns from an object.” ( link )

Wright’s church also taught Obama Marxist “Black Liberation Theology.” The originator of that theology was James H. Cone,  the mentor of Obama’s mentor Wright.  Cone’s groundbreaking 1969 book Black Theology and Black Power announced: “The time has come for white America to be silent and listen to black people. . . . All white men are responsible for white oppression. . . . Theologically, Malcolm X was not far wrong when he called the white man ‘the devil.’. . . Any advice from whites to blacks on how to deal with white oppression is automatically under suspicion as a clever device to further enslavement.” ( link ) Hence, Obama’s focus on Wright’s phrase, “white folks greed runs a world in need.”  ( link )

Therefore, according to Cone, “What we need is the divine love as expressed in black power, which is the power of blacks to destroy their oppressors, here and now, by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject God’s love.” [A Black Theology of Liberation, p.70; quoted at link ]. In other words, “black power” requires destruction of whites by any means, including genocide.  This pseudo-Christian theology seems to have parallels with homicidal pan-Islamic jihadism, such as expressed in the attack of September 11, 2001.

In 1988 Obama entered Harvard Law School.  While at Harvard, he contributed a footnote to a law review article by left-wing legal scholar Laurence Tribe, the latter contending that constitutional jurisprudence should be updated in a similar way that Einstein’s theory of relativity replaced Newtonian mechanics, a view that would release judges from the original intent of the Founders of America.  ( link quoting “Dreams of My Father.”)

“In the 13 years between Obama’s return to Chicago from law school and his Senate campaign, he was deeply involved with the city’s constellation of community-organizing groups. He wrote about the subject. He attended organizing seminars. He served on the boards of foundations that support community organizing. He taught Alinsky’s concepts and methods in workshops. When he first ran for office in 1996, he pledged to bring the spirit of community organizing to his job in the state Senate. And, after he was elected to the U.S. Senate, his wife, Michelle, told a reporter, “Barack is not a politician first and foremost. He’s a community activist exploring the viability of politics to make change.'”  ( link ).

No wonder that Obama was a director of the Woods Fund board from 1999 to Dec. 11, 2002, according to the Fund’s website.  According to tax filings, Obama received compensation of $6,000 per year for his service in 1999 and 2000.  [P]  Obama served on the Wood’s Fund board alongside [Marxist] William C. Ayers, a member of the Weathermen terrorist group which sought to overthrow of the U.S. government and took responsibility for bombing the U.S. Capitol in 1971.  Among those funded was the PLO terrorist Khalidi.  ( link ).

No wonder that in April 2004 after the American-led coalition deposed the terrorist regime of Saddam Hussein, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and his wife, Michelle Obama, attended an party held at Syrian lobbyist Tony Rezko’s home in honor of  Saddam’s henchman, Iraqi-British billionaire businessman Nadhmi Auchi, “who was visiting the United States at the time.”  ( link ) Auchi later via an intermediary poured thousands of dollars into the campaigns of Barack Obama and other politicians.  ( link ).

No wonder that in August, 2006 Obama traveled to Kenya to campaign for his Luo terrorist cousin Raili Odinga.  Odingo is a communist financed by al-Qaeda sources who seeks to impose Islamic Sharia Law on a predominately Christian nation. ( link )

Barack’s half-brother Abongo “Roy” Obama is a Luo activist and a militant Islamist whose ideology is Afrocentric and seeks to liberate the continent from white influences (“the poisoning influences of European culture.”).  ( link ) He urges his younger brother to embrace his African heritage   ( link ) Both oppose Kenya’s pro-American government and seek to ally Kenya with America’s pan-Islamic enemies.

“With al-Qaida strengthening its beachheads in Africa — from Algeria to Sudan to Somalia — the last thing the West needs is for pro-Western Kenya to fall into the hands of Islamic extremists.”  ( link )

“I believe in the power of the African-American religious tradition to spur social change,” Obama has asserted. He also says his faith has led him to question “the idolatry of the free market.” ( link )
