Free Obama's White Grandmother Andy Martin Wednesday, March 28, 2007
CHICAGO -- If anyone else running for president locked his granny away and refused to allow her to be seen, would the media complain? You betcha.
But America's media have supinely allowed Barry Obama to pretend he has no white relatives. He has paraded his step-grandmother in Kenya, who never saw him until the 1980s, as his "granny," and locked the grandmother who actually raised him away in a closet.
Now, the Chicago Tribune reports "the Obama campaign declined to make [his white grandmother] available."
Is she sick? Not apparently. Bedridden? Hospitalized? Not apparently. She is the "Prisoner of Obama," and of Obama's racist myth that he is "Black" and not "Black and White."
What a disgrace.
And like whimpering puppies the media do not protest, complain or demand access.
Free Granny Madelyn Dunham [Obama]!
Story Continues Below
Barack Obama is one of the most racist politicians in America today. And we let him get away with it. We are afraid to confront Obama's reality, so we pretend that reality is not there, even though it is staring us in the face. Anyone remember "Miss Lillian?" Or Barbara Bush? Or Bill Clinton's mom, drinking, gambling card-playing gal that she was?
Noone else but Obama could get away with pretending that his paternal grandfather's second or third or fourth wife was his "granny" when she wasn't.
Maybe that's the core of the antipathy between grandson and grandmother. Maybe that's why Obama's white grandmother is locked in purdah. She is offended that Obambi shamelessly highlights his black relatives in Kenya and, equally shamelessly, pretends his white relatives in Hawaii who actually raised him do not exist. It would hurt me.
No one could get away with pretending his white grandmother didn't exist except a media witch doctor such as Obama.
I have been attacking Obama for months because of his racist exclusion of his white relatives from the campaign trail.
We finally smoked out a picture of Obama's sister in the Chicago Tribune. She had said she was his "adviser" but refused to be photographed. Did she plan to enter the White house with a paper sack over her head?
But the "segregation" of Madelyn Dunham, Obama's white grandmother, and only real grandmother, has to be one of the cruelest and most mendacious political kidnappings this nation has ever seen.
Mrs. Dunham lives alone in the same apartment where she has lived for many years. Thus, it is reasonable to assume she is not incapacitated or an invalid.
Granny Dunham told the New York Times she was not well enough to speak, but in reality the Obama campaign maintains Stalinist "control" over potential interviewees. Obama's minions tried to control access to Obama's friend who was recently released from prison. Since he became a candidate for U.S. Senator, Obama has locked his white relative away in his racist closet.
Madelyn Dunham raised Barry Obama. It was probably her money that got him admitted to the prestigious Punahou School in Hawaii and paid his fees. Her efforts were formative, perhaps even more so than those of Obama's mother Ann, Madelyn's daughter. And yet Madelyn is being hidden away.
All because she is white and Barry Obama is a "black" candidate for president.
What a lie. What hypocrisy. What cowardice. And this man wants to sit in the Oval Office?
Ironically, locking Madelyn away is going to hurt Obama more with African-Americans than with whites. Whites delight in drinking Obama's Kool-Aid. Reason and reality will only gradually descend on them.
But blacks are a lot smarter than whites when it comes to slights, because they have experienced racial slights all their lives. Blacks know who Obama is, and they know how he is trying to "pass" and ignore his past.
During the decade when crack devastated the African-American community it was the "Black Grannies" who were and are the backbone of the community. These grandmothers helped stabilize disintegrating families ravaged by drugs. Black grannies will not like the fact that their white counterpart is being treated badly by Obama.
Black and white grandmothers? My guess is they will stick together on this one. They will be offended by the way Obama is treating the woman who really raised him and was the stabilizing factor in his life, Madelyn Dunham.
I repeat: Free Granny Madelyn Dunham [Obama]!

That's because he's trying to pass for black.
I'm going to have to get the Tribune article to send to my Obama-loving Dem friends. They'll never believe a story from Newsmax.
Tell me where I'm wrong (Like you guys wouldn't be happy to!). But wouldn't that be kind of a good thing for Obama? Maybe when they get behind the curtain, people who might not feel entirely comfortable voting for a black man might do so if they knew he was half black/half white. Does his true status make him a pariah in the black community? I'm confused as to what the downside is here.
Why, this would be like Bill Clinton locking away his black grandmother...
"Free Granny Madelyn Dunham [Obama]! "
I see T-shirts and bumper stickers.
More from Hillary....
The MSN will get to the heart of this mater. No?
I strongly suspect that the folks here at FR or hitlerys campaign will uncover the ole girl.
According to Chicago Sun-Times.
I'd sure love to find out if it was a mistake, or if the paper was mislead.
All it says is that the Obama campaign refused to make her available. The rest is probably all made up by Newsmax and impossible to verify, so it's not usable in any kind of real world argument.
Obama's Pretending to be Black is Nauseating. The Democr*p Party is too Racist to Ever Give the Nomination to a Black Man.
Good question, I think we need to race this off to newsbusters.org. Was this a media slip-up, or did the Chicago Sun-Times get purposely misled by the Obama campaign.
THE DUNHAMS: precocious, self-assured Stanley Ann (left); her impetuous father, who named his only child after himself; her mother, Madelyn, the quiet, firm influence in the home. Old friends say they see flashes of them all in Stanley Ann's son, Sen. Barack Obama.
A young Barack Obama is shown with his mother, Ann, in Hawaii shortly after his father, Barack Obama Sr., left the two to pursue his studies at Harvard. Barack's mother was given the name Stanley Ann Dunham because of her father's strong desire to have a son.
At his high school graduation, Barack Obama gets a hug from his grandmother Madelyn as his grandfather Stanley beams. His maternal grandparents raised Obama in Hawaii while his mother was living in Indonesia.
Sound like someone wants to "educate" the whites and the blacks. I'm not voting for him but I can understand asking any relative to not talk to the media. Also living independently, and privately, in your own apartment is not locked in a closet.
It would have been an interesting article , without the agenda hits.
