Posted on 07/20/2012 1:35:10 PM PDT by Academiadotorg
Academic elites have treated controversial presidential mentor Frank Marshall Davis one of two ways. Either they ignore him or elevate him.
For example, Boston Universitys Gene Anthony Jarrett labels him one of the canonical African-American writers. John Edgar Tidwell of the University of Kansas calls him Kansass Most famous Unknown Poet.
For their part, Friends of Barack, not to mention the man himself, are in denial about his relationship to Davis. Although the president mentioned Davis at least 22 times in his memoirs, FMDs last name was never given.
Now, There is not a single Frank Marshall Davis audio clip from Dreams From My Father, historian Paul Kengor noted in a conference in Washington, D. C. on July 19, 2012. Theyve all been pulled. Kengor spoke at a conference organized by Americas Survival, which was founded by Cliff Kincaid, who also directs Accuracy in Medias Center for Investigative Journalism.
Few scribes, scholars and pundits ponder why the man President Obama identified in his memoir only as Frank the poet became the subject of a 600-page FBI file. Grove City College professor Paul Kengor actually read that file, along with Daviss testimony before a congressional committee, various government reports that name him as an enemy agent and the columns which Davis wrote for newspapers in Chicago and Hawaii.
The result is a fairly definitive book entitled The Communist. For the record, it is very significantand disturbingthat Frank joined the Party after, rather than before, the Hitler-Stalin pact, Kengor writes. Numerous American communists joined CPUSA [the Communist Party of the United States of America] during the Great Depression in the early 1930s, but fled the Party like the plague after Stalin betrayed them by signing this pernicious pact with Hitler.

obama’s real father
I can’t urge people strongly enough to read this book. Get with others & share it, if need be. It is almost constant revelations so far (I’m about a quarter of the way through it. I can’t tell- Kindle)
What we don’t know- & don’t seek to find out, is incredibly dangerous.
someone made a movie (and advertised it on the drudge report) of what I’ve thought for years
was the most likely hypothesis/reason behind the mysterious birth of our current President
best selling author Paul Kengor recently wrote a book about Mr. Frank Marshall Davis...
