Skip to comments.Why Was Obama‘s Audio Book Version of ’Dreams From My Father’ Purged of All References
Posted on 10/03/2012 8:55:38 AM PDT by Nachum
You might recall TheBlazes series of reports on Dr. Paul Kengors powerful book, The Communist, which offered a detailed account of the Communist Party ties of President Obamas longtime mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. Frank, as he is referred to in Obamas memoir Dreams From My Father, is mentioned multiple times in the print edition of the presidents book, however, Kengor now reveals that all references to Frank were purged from the volumes abridged audio version.
Its an observation that was first broached, albeit very briefly, by Jack Cashill in a July article. And since then, the scrubbing has gone unnoticed. Until now.
Frank whose influence Kengor asserts was key to the fledgling politician and that the eccentric activist appears in each mile-marker of Obamas path from Hawaii to the halls of Washington, D.C. is mentioned no less than 22 times by name in Dreams From My Father and is referenced via pronouns numerous other times throughout the book.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Good question. Maybe Jim Lehrer will ask him tonight.
Communists have a long record of disappearing inconvenient people from their history.
Because the people surrounding this administration are following the same path as their communist mentors. This is how it was done in an era in which the only medium was the photograph: People were simply erased from pictures.
What happened if you already had the book at home? It was your responsibility as a citizen to go back and erase the person from the book. Seriously! Check out the book below:
And why is it so hard to realize that King Obama surrounded himself with communists, criminals, and taught by Muslims in his youth. King Obama is a communists black Muslim..........
Good question. Maybe Jim Lehrer will ask him tonight.
And don’t forget Mack-Daddy. He’s a Mack-Daddy, too.
Could it be because Joel Gilbert just mailed out over one MILLION copies of his film "DREAMS FROM MY REAL FATHER" , suggesting Frank Marshall Davis' paternal link?
[1 Million mailed to battle ground voting states of Ohio, 100k to New Hampshire]
In a sane world, having the following comments out in print via Obamas racist books would have knocked him out of the running for president of the United States. (they would have crucified a white candidate for far less)
From Dreams from My Father, I FOUND A SOLACE IN NURSING A PERVASIVE SENSE OF GRIEVANCE AND ANIMOSITY AGAINST MY MOTHERS RACE. Barack Hussein Obama
From Dreams from my Father, The emotion between the races could never be pure, even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, THE OTHER RACE (WHITE) WOULD ALWAYS REMAIN JUST THAT: MENACING, ALIEN, AND APART. Barack Hussein Obama
From Dreams from My Father: THAT HATE HADNT GONE he wrote, BLAMING WHITE PEOPLE some CRUEL, some IGNORANT, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives. Barack Hussein Obama
From Dreams from My Father, There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs, he wrote. It remained necessary to prove which side you were on,to show your LOYALTY TO THE BLACK MASSES, TO STRIKE OUT and name names Barack Hussein Obama
From Dreams from My Father, I VOWED THAT I WOULD NEVER EMULATE WHITE MEN whose fates didnt speak to my own. IT WAS INTO MY FATHERS IMAGE, THE BLACK MAN, SON OF AFRICA, THAT ID PACKED ALL THE ATTRIBUTES I SOUGHT IN MYSELF, THE ATTRIBUTES OF MARTIN AND MALCOLM, DUBOIS AND MANDELA Barack Hussein Obama
From The Audicity of Hope: 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.
From The Audicity of Hope: After graduating from college, Obama eventually went to Chicago to interview for a job as a community organizer. His racial attitudes came into play as he sized up the man who would become his boss: There was something about him that made me wary, Obama wrote. A little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.
From The Audacity of Hope:..the white race...that ghostly figure that haunted black dreams.
From Dreams: (after making his first visit to Kenya, he wrote of being disappointed to learn that his paternal grandfather had been a servant to rich whites. that the revelation caused)ugly words to flash across my mind. Uncle Tom. Collaborator. House n-.
From The Audacity of Hope: We are no longer just a Christian nation, he argues in Audacity, which was published last year. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.
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.
From Audacity: Her memories of the Christians who populated her youth were not fond ones, Obama wrote. For my mother, organized religion too often dressed up closed-mindedness in the garb of piety, cruelty and oppression in the cloak of righteousness.
Malcolm Xs autobiography seemed to offer something different, Obama wrote. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force
Then there is his love of Islam:
Quote from Barack Obamas book, Dreams Of My Father:
THE PERSON WHO MADE ME PROUDEST OF ALL, THOUGH, WAS MY [half brother], ROY..HE CONVERTED TO ISLAM.
From Dreams of my Father, IN INDONESIA, I SPEND TWO YEARS AT A MUSLIM SCHOOL ..I STUDIED THE KORAN..
From Audacity of Hope: LOLO (Obamas step father) FOLLOWED ISLAM....I LOOKED TO LOLO FOR GUIDANCE.
From The Audacity Of Hope, I WILL STAND WITH THEM (MUSLIMS) SHOULD THE POLITICAL WINDS OF WAR SHIFT IN AN UGLY DIRECTION.. .
From The Audacity Of Hope, WE ARE NO LONGER JUST A CHRISTIAN NATION, we are also a Jewish nation, a MUSLIM NATION, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.

Dont believe it? Think these comments taken out of context? Here it all here in his own works;
Obama mocks, makes fun of the Bible:
Still need convincing?

As soon as all the corrections which happened to be necessary in any particular number of The Times had been assembled and collated, that number would be reprinted, the original copy destroyed, and the corrected copy placed on the files in its stead. This process of continuous alteration was applied not only to newspapers, but to books, periodicals, pamphlets, posters, leaflets, films, sound-tracks, cartoons, photographs -- to every kind of literature or documentation which might conceivably hold any political or ideological significance. Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to have been correct, nor was any item of news, or any expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to remain on record. All history was a palimpsest, scraped clean and reinscribed exactly as often as was necessary. In no case would it have been possible, once the deed was done, to prove that any falsification had taken place. The largest section of the Records Department, far larger than the one on which Winston worked, consisted simply of persons whose duty it was to track down and collect all copies of books, newspapers, and other documents which had been superseded and were due for destruction. A number of The Times which might, because of changes in political alignment, or mistaken prophecies uttered by Big Brother, have been rewritten a dozen times still stood on the files bearing its original date, and no other copy existed to contradict it. Books, also, were recalled and rewritten again and again, and were invariably reissued without any admission that any alteration had been made. Even the written instructions which Winston received, and which he invariably got rid of as soon as he had dealt with them, never stated or implied that an act of forgery was to be committed: always the reference was to slips, errors, misprints, or misquotations which it was necessary to put right in the interests of accuracy.
I guess Frank Marshall Davis has become an unperson in Obama's political camouflage.
That video is completely bogus...
Because then you would hear the vile, demented blathering of the ignorant socialist-loving a$$ clown in his own voice. Why else?
As for the purge of all references to "Frank" from "Dream From My Father". . . noted as mysteriously purged within the same week as the mass distribution of free copies of Gilbert's video . . .just coincidence, huh?
Educate me...point out the flaws.
Gilbert is a loon, but so are his critics. They have an obsession about proving Obama's legitimacy that is no less insane than anything Gilbert ever wrote about Elvis.
They won't need to locate it for themselves. Dem media operatives will find the rebutting evidence and shout it from the highest rooftops. By lying about something that can be proven false, Gilbert has committed an unpardonable sin. It may result in a substantial backfire for his efforts. (Or not. Many voters are simply uninformable. )
The latest installment of it actually hit a target. It appears that LorenC has actually caught Gilbert in a provable lie. It is not an accidental lie, or merely a mistake, it is a real and determined effort to intentionally mislead the public about the truth.
After discovering one of those photos in a Magazine from the 1950s, Gilbert should not have claimed those pictures were of Stanley Ann. He knew very well that pictures from the 1950s could not possibly be of Stanley Ann, who could not have known Frank Davis until 1960 at the earliest.
Now tell me again, which girl is Stanley Ann Dunham?
