Obama's 'sex rebel' mentor

Rather lurid:
For seven years, the presidential candidate had a "father-son" relationship with Frank Marshall Davis, who has confessed to having sex with children, sadomasochism, bondage and practicing a wide array of deviant sexual activities.
In his 1995 memoir Dreams from My Father, Obama identifies his childhood mentor only as "Frank," but Obama insiders later confirmed he was referring to Davis, a journalist and poet who was a pal of Obama's maternal grandfather, Stanley Dunham.
Frank Marshall Davis admitted in his private papers that he had secretly authored a hard-core pornographic autobiography called Sex Rebel: Black, published in 1968. . . .
The appalling catalog of admitted real-life decadence is laced with perverted sexual activity, bisexuality, rape - and the seduction of children.
More important, interesting and relevant is that Frank Marshall Davis was a Communist Party member. But mentioning that wouldn't be "respectful" enough for the McCain campaign. And, "deviant" and "perverted" are rather judgmental words, aren't they?


  1. I think that the policies and middle-school propaganda alone are enough to inform voters.
    Raunch is better kept at arm's length, lest it cling to one.

  2. OK, so Obama's a Marxist who hangs out with domestic terrorists (Ayers), convicts (Rezko), and America-haters (Wright), works to subvert the system through ACORN and the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, wants to steal the election and then trample the Bill of Rights, but that's not all, now there's this?? How on earth can he actually be a candidate for President of the United States with all this?!?

    And what the h*ll, didn't the McCain campaign do ANY opposition research?!?

    God save us.

  3. Tsk. Tsk.

    'Tis truly a sad day when all you republic-CONS have to attribute a rediculous wingnut claim such as this, and source the NATiONAL freqn ENQUIRER for pete's sake!!

    Isn't that precious?!? Ha! :P

    Double digits in the polls over McP.O.dubya! :P

    Good night,

    and Good Luck!

  4. "For seven years, the presidential candidate had a "father-son" relationship with Frank Marshall Davis, who has confessed to having sex with children, sadomasochism, bondage and practicing a wide array of deviant sexual activities."

    Untrue. Obama did not have a "father-son" relationship with Davis. That is one of the AIM fabrications. Further, Davis did NOT confess to to those activities you describe. He wrote a novel in which the protagonist outlines various sexual adventures.

    Frank Marshall Davis wrote a pornographic novel under the pseudonym Bob Greene, one chapter of which is devoted to the protagonist and his wife having sex with a thirteen year old girl, according to a British website (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/uselection2008/barackobama/2601914/Frank-Marshall-Davis-alleged-Communist-was-early-influence-on-Barack-Obama.html) on 24 August. According to the British website, "Mr Davis (writing as Greene) explains that although he has “changed names and identities…all incidents I have described have been taken from actual experiences."

    In a same day report citing the British website, "Accuracy In Media" (AIM) reported that Edgar Tidwell, an "expert in the life and writing of Davis" confirms that Frank Marshall Davis wrote "Sex Rebel: Black" as a semi-autobiographical novel. Despite Tidwell's expert opinion that the novel was SEMI-autobiographical, AIM's Cliff Kincaid escalated accusations against Davis by first claiming he was a sex pervert (http://www.aim.org/aim-column/obamas-red-mentor-was-a-pervert/) in their 24 August report. (Kincaid falsely attributed the "pervert" claim to the British website.) On 14 October, AIM again escalated the charges by claiming Davis was an "admitted child molester" (http://www.aim.org/aim-column/was-a-communist-obamas-sex-teacher/),

    There are at least four distinct disclaimers that indemnify Frank Marshall Davis from literal attribution of this novel:

    a. According to dictionary.com, "identity" means "condition or character as to who a person or what a thing is: a case of mistaken identity." Changing name AND identities means changing names AND other "condition or character as to who a person or what a thing is," which may include biographical data such as age.

    b. "Taken from actual experiences" does not mean they are accurate representations of actual experiences. It only means they are based on actual experiences.

    c. Edgar Tidwell, the expert on the life and writing of Frank Marshall Davis, says the book is "semiautobiographical," which (according to dictionary.com) means "1. pertaining to or being a fictionalized account of an author's own life. 2. pertaining to or being a work of fiction strongly influenced by events in an author's life."

    d. Further, scandalous memoirs such as "Sex Rebel: Black (Memoirs of a Gash Gourmet)" have been a literary genre for centuries. According to Wikipedia, such fictional novels are allegedly factual, but are largely invented. The title, alone, qualifies it as a "scandalous memoir."

    In an honest evaluation, any of these disclaimers should protect the author from literal interpretation. The combination of all four should provide absolute protection from any culpability. Unfortunately, Davis's accusers are dishonest. Like Mike Nifong, the disgraced ex-D.A. in the Duke lacrosse case, their campaign to demonize their target ignores exculpatory evidence in their reckless rush to judgment. In order to smear Barack Obama through guilt-by-association with Frank Marshall Davis, they are virtually lynching Davis by grossly misrepresenting his character and influence.

    In "Sex Rebel," Davis's Bob Greene (not unlike Nabokov's Humbert Humbert) hesitates at a pubescent girl's sexual invitation, but foolishly relents. Like "Lolita," Davis's faux foreword is written by a Ph.D impersonator who details the psychological significance of the memoir. Like Nabokov, Davis wanted to write under a pseudonym to shield his reputation, but felt compelled to reveal his authorship. As a result, however, Davis has been posthumously accused of pedophilia, while "Lolita" is "considered by many to be one of the finest novels written in the 20th century." In 1998, it was named the fourth greatest English language novels of the 20th century by the Modern Library," despite also being initially dismissed as pornography, according to Wikipedia.

    This deliberate misrepresentation is only the latest in a long series of falsehoods by AIM professional prevaricators. Their "specific misrepresentation" is documented at http://my.barackobama.com/page/community/post/Kaleokualoha/gGxdvX. I invite any person of integrity to refute my evidence against any of these AIM lies. If AIM had authentic evidence of Davis's radical influence, they would not need to fabricate such evidence.
