Barack Obama; The Unauthorized Biography Of A Marxist - Part 2 – The Hawaii Years - Frank Marshall Davis

In June 1960 when Stanley Ann Dunham arrived in Hawaii after highschool she was described by her friends as a liberal athiest and an avowed Marxist. Stanley Ann’s friends who were similiarly inclined refered to her as a “fellow traveler”. An “intellectual rebel” with a fledgling beatnik sensibility. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story?page=3 , http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/politics/2004334057_obama08m.html , http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/print.asp?ID=8776

Former classmates noted her love of foreign films, art-house theaters, poetry and University District coffee shops like the Encore where discussion of jazz and politics would take place. Dunham hadn’t had a boyfriend in high school, according to Maxine Box, her best friend at the time. John W. Hunt, another of her close friends, recalled the coffee house discussions about world events, French cinema, the meaning of life and the existence of God. Others state that, “When Ann Dunham arrived in Hawaii, she was a full-fledged radical leftist and practitioner of critical theory.” http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/politics/2004334057_obama08m.html , http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/08/23/AR2008082301620_pf.html   http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-0703270151mar27-archive,0,2623808.story                                                             http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/print.asp?ID=8776  http://www.tedmontgomery.com/remarks/ObamaClinton/Barack’smother/index.html

The Hawaii or Oahu of 1960 was much smaller than it is today. While Oahu still occupies about 550 square miles, the population was only 500,000. Compare that for example with the 1960 population of Chicago – which was 7 times larger – 3.5 Million (3,500,000). http://www.enterprisehonolulu.com/html/display.cfm?sid=177  http://tigger.uic.edu/depts/ahaa/imagebase/chimaps/mcclendon.html

When they arrived in Hawaii the Dunham family moved into a large house on Kamehameha Avenue.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/08/23/AR2008082301620_pf.html

Ann, she dropped the Stanley after arriving in Hawaii, would not begin classes at the University of Hawaii until September, three months away. Prior to starting those classes she would meet one of her Father’s acquaintances, Frank Marshall Davis.

Frank Marshall Davis

Frank Marshall Davis was born in 1905 in Arkanasas City, Kansas. In 1923 he began his college education at Friends Unversity in Whichta, Kansas. When Friends University was originally founded in 1898 it was associated with the Religous Society of Friends or Quakers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friends_University , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Marshall_Davis , http://www.litencyc.com/php/speople.php?rec=true&UID=5045

In 1924 Davis transferred to Kansas State Agricultrural College, now called Kansas State University. Davis studied there in 1924-1927 and again in 1929, but her did not finish his degree. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Marshall_Davis , http://www.litencyc.com/php/speople.php?rec=true&UID=5045

Davis spent his early years in Kansas as had Obama’s grandparents and mother. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Marshall_Davis , http://www.litencyc.com/php/speople.php?rec=true&UID=5045

In 1927, Davis moved to Chicago. where he worked at various African-American newspapers. He also wrote free-lance articles and short stories for African-American magazines. It was during this time that Davis began a serious effort to write poetry, including his first long poem, entitled Chicago’s Congo, Sonata for an Orchestra.  Norman Forge’s Black Cat Press published Davis’s first book, Black Man’s Verse, in the summer of 1935. The book was an alliance of free verse written in the rhythm of jazz that condemned racial prejudice.        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Marshall_Davis , http://www.washburn.edu/reference/cks/mapping/davis/index.html

In 1930, Davis moved to Atlanta to work as editor for a semiweekly black newspaper. Later, Davis became the editor of the Atlanta Daily World. http://www.washburn.edu/reference/cks/mapping/davis/index.html

In 1935, Davis moved back to Chicago to take the position of managing editor of the Associated Negro Press, a news service for Black newspapers.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Marshall_Davis  http://www.washburn.edu/reference/cks/mapping/davis/index.html

In 1937, his second book, I Am the American Negro, loudly critiqued racism and its social connotations. The following year, Davis published his third book, Through Sepia Eyes (1938), which contained four poems. The poems were published in later volumes of Davis’ books. In 1948, Davis published 47TH STREET which many believe to be his best work. In his title poem, Davis chronicled a “rainbow race” of south side Chicagoans and their commonalities of economic class rather than race.  http://www.washburn.edu/reference/cks/mapping/davis/index.html Yes, in his day, Davis was a  south side Chicago community oraganizer. 
A reader interested in Davis’ poetry should check out this site> http://www.washburn.edu/reference/cks/mapping/davis/index.html where poetry from “47th Street” and “Awakening” can be viewed.  Also see: http://www.orangeturtle.com/fourglimpses.html
 
 
 
 

 

In 1946, Davis married Helen Canfield, who is descibed as a white Chicago Socialite 19 years his junior. The couple divorced in 1970. Canfield was Davis’ second wife.

In 1948, after 47th Street was published, Davis moved to Hawaii. There has been much speculation about why Davis left Chicago for Hawaii, including comments that the actor Paul Roberson suggested Hawaii would be a place more tolerant of a bi-racial marriage.  http://www2.hawaii.edu/~takara/frank_marshall_davis.htm . 

Roberson, himself a Communist, would later be defended by Davis. http://www.hawaii.edu/uhwo/clear/HonoluluRecord1/articles/v2n2/Frankly%20Speaking.html

According to Davis’ biographer, Davis told the press he was there for an extended vacation to write, while his wife painted.                                http://www2.hawaii.edu/~takara/frank_marshall_davis.htm

In actuallity, Davis immediately began work launching The Honolulu Record with Koji Ariyoshi. The “Record” was a paper published by the International Longshoreman and Warehouse Union headed by Harry Briggs. http://www2.hawaii.edu/~takara/frank_marshall_davis.htm , http://clear.uhwo.hawaii.edu/ , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Marshall_Davis.                      Both Ariyoshi and Briggs were convicted of being Communists in 1958. www.usasurvival.org/docs/DavisNetworkHawaii.pdf

Davis confirmed this relationship and his contacts in his own biography.  http://www.usasurvival.org/docs/hawaii-obama.pdf at page 15.                                                  Davis compared the Honolulu Record with the Chicago Star, a paper now acknowledged as a Communist publication of the 1940′s.

In 1975, Hawaii Governor John Burns, who in the 1950s was a Democratic Party organizer and delegate to Congress, would reflect that perhaps there were Communists in the union. “Every guy in the ILWU was at one time or another a member of the Communist Party of America. This is where they got their organizational information and how to organize, and how to bring groups together and how to create cells and how to make movements that are undetected by the bosses and everything else. … I know what they were about. I said this is the only way they are going to organize,” he said. Dan Inouye, the U.S. Senator from Hawaii. who during the 1950s was Burns’ political ally, noted in his autobiography that Communists were probably enrolled in the union. “No one with any sense of political reality denied that there were probably some Communists in the ILWU. … “ http://archives.starbulletin.com/1999/10/18/special/story3.html
 

 
Davis authored a column called “Frankly-speaking” in the Honolulu Record. http://www2.hawaii.edu/~takara/frank_marshall_davis.htm , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Marshall_DavisDavis authored a column called “Frankly-speaking” in the Honolulu Record. http://www2.hawaii.edu/~takara/frank_marshall_davis.htm , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Marshall_Davis
 
 
 
 

 

 

For the reader interested in sampling Davis’ columns written for the “Record” check out this site: http://www.hawaii.edu/uhwo/clear/HonoluluRecord1/frankblog1949.html - The site has posted columns from 1949 – 1950. In his columns critize Davis critizes the Marshall Plan, Presidents Roosevelt and Truman, opposes support for Nationalist China and denounces our Democratic Allies from WWII while extolling the virtues of Marxist/Communist Russia and China.

Immediately after arriving in hawaii Davis also undertook organizational activities for the Communist party. These activites led to his ouster from the Hawaii NAACP. The International Longshoreman and Warehouse Union would eventually sever ties with its Communist connections and join the CIO. The CIO would later merge and become the AFL-CIO. In 1958 the Honolulu Record would close. 

A history of the Hawaii NAACP’s clash with the Communists can be read here: http://www.usasurvival.org/docs/hawaii-obama.pdf - page 16. Davis was specifially identified as a Communist oranizer in a letter from Edward Berman (NAACP Chair, Hawaii) to National NAACP leader Roy Wilkins. http://www.usasurvival.org/docs/hawaii-obama.pdf page 17. 

Berman’s letter stated, “”I (Berman) was at one of the election meetings at which one Frank Marshall Davis, formerly of Chicago (and formerly editor of the Chicago Communist paper, the Star) suddenly appeared on the scene to propagandize the membership about our ‘racial problems’ in Hawaii. He had jut sneaked in here on a boat, and presto, was an ‘expert’ on racial problems in Hawaii. Comrade Davis was supported by others who had recently ‘sneaked’ into the organization with the avowed intent and purpose of converting it into a front for the Stalinist line….
…Already, scores of Negro members were frightened away from these meetings because of the influx of this element. Only by a reorganization with a policy that will check this infiltration, can we hope to get former members back into a local NAACP branch. We are going to have to have that authority over here-otherwise you’ll have a branch exclusively composed of yelping Stalinists and their dupes-characters who are more concerned about the speedy assassination of Tito (Yugoslav communist dictator who had just broken with the USSR) than they are about the advancement of the colored people of these United States.” http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/07
Davis’ own writings on the mistakes of the Oahu NAACP, The CIO, the dangers of State Employees taking a “loyalty oath” or pledge to “protect and defend the Constitution” and the joys of a discrimination free Soviet Union can be read here: http://www.hawaii.edu/uhwo/clear/HonoluluRecord1/frankblog1949.html

When the Dunham’s arrived in 1960 Honolulu, Frank Marshall Davis, fellow Kansan, athiest, Marxist-Communist, writer, poet and jass musician was waiting to greet them. Frank Marshall Davis and Stanley Dunham were drinking buddies and in the local vernacular, “Choomers”, or pot heads as we would have called them in my 1960′s neighborhood.  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/uselection2008/barackobama/2601914/Frank-Marshall-Davis-alleged-Communist-was-early-influence-on-Barack-Obama.html

It is hard to imagine that young, 17-year-old Stanley Ann Dunham would not have been impressed with the accomplished Davis. He was after all, the imbodiment of all that she had been taught to admire. Davis at this time was 55 years old and married to a 35 year old white sociallite from Chicago. A renowned Communist, athiest, author, journalist, poet, musician and political organizer. To the young Stanley Ann Dunham he must have been the equivalent of a modern era rock star.

Commentators speculate whether Davis might be the reason Stanley Ann Dunham may have told her son, if she told her son, of a desire to attend the University of Chicago. There is no documentation that she ever applied the University of Chicago. Of course the “allegation” that Stanley Ann Dunham had been accepted at the University of Chicago may simply be another example of the “literary license” or just another lie presented by Obama in “Dreams”.

Other writers speculate that Frank Marshall Davis may, in fact, be Barack Obama’s biological father. http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/print.asp?ID=9563&Pictures=Off  

This speculation seems to be based on three facts.

Fact 1:

That in 1968 Davis published a hard core autobiograpical, pornograpic novel titled Sex Rebel: Black. The novel was published in San Diego in 1968 by Greenleaf Classics under the pseudonym Bob Greene.  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/uselection2008/barackobama/2601914/Frank-Marshall-Davis-alleged-Communist-was-early-influence-on-Barack-Obama.html

Before his death Mr Davis confirmed that he was the author of “Sex Rebel: Black” after a reader had noticed the “similarities in style and phraseology” between the pornographic work and his poetry. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/uselection2008/barackobama/2601914/Frank-Marshall-Davis-alleged-Communist-was-early-influence-on-Barack-Obama.html 

Davis stated, “I could not then truthfully deny that this book, which came out in 1968 as a Greenleaf Classic, was mine.” In the introduction to “Sex Rebel”, 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”. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/uselection2008/barackobama/2601914/Frank-Marshall-Davis-alleged-Communist-was-early-influence-on-Barack-Obama.html

In this book Davis notes a sexual liason with “Anne” an underage girl of 13. (Note that Stanley Ann Dunham was 17 when she met Davis).  

The book, which closely tracks Mr Davis’s life in Chicago and Hawaii and the fact that his first wife was black and his second white, describes in lurid detail a series of shockingly sordid sexual encounters, often involving group sex.

One chapter concerns the seduction by Mr Davis and his wife of a 13-year-old girl called Anne. Mr Davis wrote that it was the girl who had suggested he have sex with her. “I’m not one to go in for Lolitas. Usually I’d rather not bed a babe under 20. But there are exceptions. I didn’t want to disappoint the trusting child. At her still-impressionistic age, a rejection might be traumatic, could even cripple her sexually for life.” He then described how he and his wife would have sex with the girl, “Anne came up many times the next several weeks … She obtained a course in practical sex from experienced and considerate practitioners rather than from ignorant insensitive neophytes….I think we did her a favour, although the pleasure was mutual.” 

Stanley Ann Dunham arrived in Hawaii in June 1960. Her best friends on Mercer Island state she had no boyfriends while in Highschool. By November 1960 she had conceived Barack Hussein Obama.

Fact 2:

In the Obama family lore, Barrack Hussein Obama Sr., abandoned his family to study at Havard. Having been accepted at both the New School in New York and Harvard, he choose Harvard and abandoned his family rather than study at the New School where schoalrship money would have helped support the family. The facts do not support these allegations. Ann Dunham took her new born infant and abandoned Barack Obama, Sr. just weeks after the infants birth.  http://www.christianfaithandreason.com/obama2.html

Fact 3:

“Dreams” portrays Obama as an exceptionally gifted student in Indonesia. This is not particular accurate. The facts show Obama struggled with the language and was a marginal student, as many students studying in a foreign language would be. At about age 10, Obama was sent back to live with his Grandparents in Hawaii. Just prior to Obama’s arrival, Frank Marshall Davis divorced his 2nd wife. (1970).  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/uselection2008/barackobama/2601914/Frank-Marshall-Davis-alleged-Communist-was-early-influence-on-Barack-Obama.html
