Does Obama have an uncle?(Obama holocaust lie update)
NRO ^

Posted on 05/27/2008 9:25:13 AM PDT by wsjreader

Have We Heard of Obama's Uncle Before?

A key update to this post, in which Obama describes "his uncle, who was part of the American brigade that helped to liberate Auschwitz."

From a Chicago Tribune profile of Obama's mother:

The education of Obama the would-be politician didn't begin, of course, until after his birth in 1961, in Honolulu. But the parental traits that would mold him — a contrarian worldview, an initial rejection of organized religion, a questioning nature — were already taking shape years earlier in the nomadic and sometimes tempestuous Dunham family, where the only child was a curious and precocious daughter of a father who wanted a boy so badly that he named her Stanley — after himself.

Presuming Obama's mother didn't have some previously unknown long-lost brother, is Obama referring to his mother's cousin or some other, more distant relation on his mother's side? A great-uncle perhaps?

This uncle couldn't be on his Kenyan father's side, could it?

I doubt Obama would be insane enough to lie about this. But I think this is the first we've heard of this uncle from Obama. Like with his previously-unmentioned trip to Pakistan, Obama — the subject of two autobiographies, other biographies, and countless magazine and newspaper profiles — there are still chapters of his life story not yet explored.

Maybe he was referring to a great-uncle. His grandfather’s brothers.

We need to find out whether this tale has ever turned up in Obama’s 2 books or any of his previous public utterances. It would be astonishing if his long-lost “uncle” who was there at the liberation of Auschwitz had never been mentioned before by Obama, given that he’s been talking in an autobiographical vein in public for more than a decade.

Does he even have an uncle who was in the ETO in WWII? Was it a more distant relative referred to as “uncle” (that is at least possible, my great uncle in the WWII generation, my mother’s uncle really, was always “Uncle” to me). Inquring minds want to know if Obama just let loose with another whopper gaffe. Certainly US troops were not involved with the liberation of Auschwitz in eastern Poland - were never there at all, it was deep into the area occupied by the USSR in 1945. Did Obama have a relative involved with the liberation of another concentration camp such as Dachau, or is the whole story bogus?

Very plausible. Don’t want to defend this guy, but I can understand something like that. The Auschwitz thing still doesn’t fly though.

Why? He lies about virtually everything else.

As a liberal, and even more importantly as a half-black liberal, he is granted a permanent mulligan on all personally aggrandizing and self-serving statements. Until he says something that actually offends the MSM (which only Algore and Hillary have managed to do in recent history), The Obama will not be questioned. He will not be scutinized. He will not be assailed or judged or looked upon with suspicion.

In fact, we are going to soon need to stop listening to him entirely in order to avoid being overwhelmed by the contradictory, imaginary and vacuous statements he continues to purvey. There simply is no other way to avoid madness on our part.

Lets assume that Obama did have an uncle who was one of the troops who liberated Auschwitz.

If this is in fact true, then his uncle was in the Soviet Red Army.

There was a really neat lie he told about Martin Luther King too, but I've forgotten how it went. I think it was something like that MLK’s I have a dream speech cause Obama’s mom and dad to fall in love. If not that, it may have been the march in Selma. Any way, he's just full of self-serving gibberish that shows him to be a very insecure man indeed. The MSM will gloss over this so fast that most Americans will never even find out about it. Remember, though, that when they turned on Hillary they skewered her, finally, for her lies. Obama’s their favorite liberal, and he'll get a pass on this recent charade.

He said his parents got together and made a little Obambi because of the March on Selma, which occurred 4 years after his birth.

He has a wee little problem with dates, history, geography, and veracity. Otherwise, though, he’s a swell guy.

No, it was his uncle. He went on to be a mercinary who trained the snipers who shot at Hillary in Bosnia.

No you are correct - the Soviet troops liberated Auschwitz, which was hundreds of miles to the east of any US troops.

Does Barry even know the meaning of Memorial Day? Rush is playing clips of Barry's speech compared to President Bush at Arlington National Cemetery. Rush says that if McCain had ever made one of these gaffes, he would have been driven out of the race.

Can’t be. Obama is a Christian in the Jeremiah Wright vein.

My crazy uncle (he's still around) liberated Buchenwald in April 1945 as part of the 4th Armored Div. of the Third Army. US troops were also directly involved in liberating Dachau and Mauthausen.

Uncle Billy says he's still mad at the Krauts, BTW.

Yes, obviously, Obama's uncle was in the Red Army: "On January 17, 1945 Nazi personnel started to evacuate the facility; most of the prisoners were forced on a death march to the camp toward Wodzisław Śląski (German: Loslau). Those too weak or sick to walk were left behind; about 7,500 prisoners were liberated by the 322nd Rifle Division of the Red Army on January 27 1945."

The mid-60s Selma march brought his parents together except he was born in 1961 and they’d been together clearly at least 9 months before that.

Obama has lots of uncles in Kenya.

It was uncle Igor Obama who was in the Soviet army when Auschwitz was liberated.

[CBS NEWS] Obama also spoke about his uncle, who was part of the American brigade that helped to liberate Auschwitz.

The Auschwitz main camp, the Birkenau death camp and the Monowitz labor camp were liberated by soldiers of the Soviet Union in the First Army of the Ukrainian Front, under the command of Marshal Koniev, on January 27, 1945.

OBAMA BUSTED, YET AGAIN. Obama is such a liar and phony.

Obama is way too young to have had an uncle serving in WW2? I’m sure John McCain could have had Uncles serving in WW2- his father did.

Maybe Obama was referring to Uncle Sam!
