Skip to comments.Barack Obama: Red Diaper Baby
Posted on 10/30/2008 12:51:31 AM PDT by Cincinna
By now most of the American public has heard about unrepentant Weatherman terror bomber Bill Ayers, who discovered the pen is mightier than the sword and so worked with Barack Obama to steer $150 million to their radical cronies via the Annenberg Challenge.
In March and April TV viewers were treated to a solid month of "God damn America" from Obama's pastor of 20 years, Jeremiah Wright.
Are these simply isolated incidences of Obama using poor judgment in choosing his allies?
No. Barack Obama is a "red diaper baby" who has spent his formative years -- literally from the moment of his birth -- interacting with members and sympathizers of the Communist Party, USA. His mother Stanley Ann Dunham has been described by former classmates as a "fellow traveler." His grandfather Stanley Armour Dunham arranged Obama's mentorship by Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis.
Key details about Ann Dunham come from interviews in The Chicago Tribune, March 27, 2007 and the Seattle Times, April 8, 2008.
Done bouncing around Kansas, California and Texas in the years after World War Two, Stanley and Madelyn in 1955 picked up and relocated 2,000 miles from Texas to Seattle. The next year they relocated to Mercer Island specifically so their daughter, Obama's future mother, Stanley Ann Dunham could attend Mercer Island high school.
What was special about Mercer Island High School? The Chicago Tribune explains:
"In 1955, the chairman of the Mercer Island school board, John Stenhouse, testified before the House Un-American Activities Subcommittee that he had been a member of the Communist Party."

Everyone in his family, and those they surrounded themselves were Reds or shades of Pink. These were the only people throughout his life, from childhood on that Obama felt at home with.
I was originally thrown of thinking the mother was a hippie, but now it is clear.
After reading David Horowitz's book Radical Son, and Ron Radosh's book "Commie" the story is so familiar.
“red diaper baby”....I hope this writer gives Savage credit for that term cause that’s where it came from. Savage has been saying this about liberals for years and years. BO is just the culmination of the RDDB (red diaper doper baby) - the direct lineage of marxists pretending to be moderate in order to grab power.
O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
- Psalms 137:8-9 -
Mike Savage didn’t coin the term “red diaper baby.” It’s been around for decades. Tom Wolfe mentioned the term in “Radical Chic...”(published in 1970).
exactly what I was thinking
He didn’t coin the term but he is the only one I’ve ever heard use the term. He added the “doper” part I think.
As a side note, check out who reviewed the “Red Diapers” book from the link you provided- Angela Davis and Howard Zinn! lol They would know about the subject wouldn’t they? ha
Michael Savage did not invent the term “red diaper baby”.
It has been a commonly used term of self description of those who grew up in the 30’s,40’s, and 50’s, children of Communists and fellow travelers.
BTW the term never applies to liberals. It applies to hard core leftists who grew up in Communist and sympathizer families. Surrounded by birth... from whence comes the term “red diaper”, not from Savage.
Two of the best books on the subject are by Conservatives who were Red Diaper Babies who saw the light..
David Horowitz “Radical Son”
Ron Radosh “Commies”
It applies to modern liberals...which of course aren’t really liberals at all in the classic sense.
No, it doesn’t.
There are many liberals today who come from good solid conservative families.
Red Diaper Babies come from Communist, Socialist, and commie sympathizer parents.
Does anyone have the Rush, Hannity, Savage, O’Reilly links handy? Also, this is a good one to Digg.
RED DIAPER DOPER BABY
Thanks to FReeper drpix.
Wow. Surrounded by communists, atheists, and perverts. No wonder he turned out the way he did.
DIGG it here
Very interesting background. I think one thing everybody ignores is that the grandmother must also have been pretty left-wing, despite being a bank officer. The entire family reminds me of the families of the red diaper babies I grew up with in New York (where, btw, they even went to a school known as the Little Red Schoolhouse), except that most of the New York RDBs were Jewish and their families, who were by now well off, had gotten into heavy duty Marxism through labor union organizing. However, there was also a Unitarian component that was very much like the Dunham family.
The Unitarians went to a very well-known Unitarian “church” in the Village, and the Jews went to the Ethical Culture Society on the Upper West Side. Neither of these institutions had anything to do with real Christianity or Judaism. As the RDBs grew older, they threw aside even this pretense, and burst out as violent Marxists in full flower in 1968.
These are the same type of dangerously deranged people who were involved with Jim Jones’s commune and who allowed their own children to drink the suicide kool-aid in Guyana. They never fit in with genuine American society because they rejected God, family and country. To trust those of this ilk with the education of our children is committing national suicide.
