Birtherism 2.0: Obama’s ‘Real’ Father


Jerome Corsi and the Worldnutdaily are taking birtherism to a new level, not only arguing that Obama wasn’t born in the United States (or falsely claiming that he gave up his citizenship when he lived in Indonesia for a few years as a child, another version of this idiocy), but that Barack Obama Sr. isn’t even his real father. And who is his real father? A communist!

“The film provides the first cohesive understanding of Obama’s deep-rooted life journey in socialism, from his childhood to his presidency,” Gilbert told WND.

Gilbert rejects the official story that the Kenyan-born Barack Obama was the president’s father.

Instead, he argues, Frank Marshall Davis, the radical poet and journalist who was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA, was the real, biological and ideological father of Barack Obama.

“I decided to investigate Frank Marshall Davis. His close physical resemblance to Obama was shocking, while Obama little resembled the Kenyan Obama,” Gilbert said. “How could this be?”

Yes, how could this be? Everyone must look exactly like their father! God said so! Jesus, these people are nuts. Stark raving nuts.

    Of course, the problem with this hypothesis is that it negates the hypothesis that Obama isn’t a natural born citizen as Mr. Davis was born in Arkansas City, Kansas, making both of his parents US citizens at the time of his birth.

    By the way, what ever happened to the Obama’s father was Malcolm X hypothesis?

    His close physical resemblance to Obama was shocking

    ZOMG! They’re both black!

  3. matty1 says

    Obama was his own father using the same time machine that he planted his birth certificate with.

    He is also his own mother (see Heinlein for details).

    Political ideology is hereditary?

    Yeah. They’re total Lamarckists. That’s how they get the equation, Gaskell Romney went broke = Mitt Romney is down with the Joe Sixpacks.

  5. anandine says

    Bronze dog, no, it was Bill Ayers, who also wrote Obama’s books. Or was that Saul Alinsky?

    Belief in that hypothesis might explain why they throw around “liberal” so recklessly, without regard to a person’s stated positions on issues.

    Re amandine @ #7

    Unfortunately, both Ayers and Alinsky are Caucasians so that rules them out.

    lol wut?

    Not so much hereditary as it transcends time and place. Any connection, however tenuous, with some long dead radical or socialist planted the seeds within the young Obama’s mind that dominate him to this day. For example, when Saul Alinsky died when Obama was 11 and living thousands of miles away, his soul instantaneously traveled through space-time to inhabit the young Barack. Also, the soul turned into a radical communist unlike Alinsky.

    I thought it was Rev. Wright, who also baptized Obama as a Muslim.

  10. daved says

    I’d agree that Barack Obama doesn’t look a heck of a lot like Obama Sr, but he also doesn’t look much like Frank Marshall Davis. People claiming to see a strong resemblance between Davis and the Prez are definitely smoking something.

    No it doesn’t.

    This is World Nut Daily we are referring to here. Anything is possible.

    Saul Alinsky was his real father. Which means of course, that his real mother was someone else with African ancestry. Probably it was Angela Davis.

  12. Skip White says

    They still haven’t realized the real truth, though they’re onto something with the assertion that Obama’s father was a Communist. See, his real father was none other than Josef Stalin himself! Stalin didn’t really die in 1953; he simply faked his death and underwent radical skin-darkening and shaved off his moustache. Now, if you were to add Stalin’s moustache to any picture of Obama, you’d see the resemblance.

    Of course, the liberal will never tell us any of this, because they’re all funded by communism.

    Would that have anything to do with the people who accused Richard Dawkins of supporting slavery because some of his distant ancestors owned slaves or whatever it was?

  14. The Lorax says

    You guys are crazy. Clearly, Obama was cloned from Davros, and is part of the Daleks’ cleverly crafted plan to take over the world. Don’t you see the resemblance?

  15. slc1 says

    Re Raven @ #16

    I hadn’t heard the Angela Davis hypothesis previously (seems a little unlikely as she was only 17 when Obama was born). However, at least one nutcase has suggested that Obama’s mother was not Ann Dunham but Ann Dunham’s mother (shades of Sarah Palin and Trig)!

  16. jamessweet says

    Not that it matters, but I don’t think Obama looks anything like Frank Marshall Davis…

  17. cptdoom says

    I’d agree that Barack Obama doesn’t look a heck of a lot like Obama Sr, but he also doesn’t look much like Frank Marshall Davis. People claiming to see a strong resemblance between Davis and the Prez are definitely smoking something.

    From what I remember of his autobiography and the pictures it included, the President does, however, bear a very strong resemblence to his maternal grandfather. I’m sure it would blow the typical wingnut mind to find out a person of mixed ancestry can, in fact, resemble both sides of the family.

    That was Pam Geller’s idea, which apparently didn’t get any traction based on the rather annoying detail that she couldn’t ever put Ann Dunham and Malcolm X together in the same city, much less the same room. Both theories are mostly based on the “Obama kind of looks like him” theory. A resemblance that must be apparent only to people who think all black people look alike.

    But Davis was apparently a friend of Dunham’s father, so of course she had sex with him!

    No one has suggest Darth Vader yet?

    Well close. He and Dick Cheney are distant cousins.

  19. slc1 says

    Re d cwilson @ #27

    Wait a minute here, is the hypothesis that Obama is the result of a relationship between Angela Davis and Ann Dunhams father? If so, the man was guilty of statutory rape as Ms. Davis was 16 at the time of conception.

  20. Skip White says

    After much deliberation, I have realized that my prior assertion that Stalin was Obama’s father is totally incorrect, and merely a red herring (no pun intended) to distract from the REAL real truth: Joe Arpaio is Obama’s father. Think about it! Arpaio is well-known for being an attention whore, and what better way to attract attention to himself than proclaim that the President is not really American, only to reveal later on that he, Joe Arpaio, is in fact the President’s father!

  21. arakasi says

    Close, but not quite. It was JFK (see Bubba Ho-tep). He was clever enough, however to tweak the birth certificate to change Obama’s birthdate from 1964 to 1961 so no one would suspect.

  22. yoav says

    Some of you got elements of the story but you all missed the full picture. Obama was clearly created by the Daleks who introduced DNA they got from the frozen sperm of both Hitler and Stalin into a de-nucleated egg donated by Angela Davis and implanted in Ann Dunham by Bill Ayres.

  23. Nemo says

    People think it was Malcolm X, but that’s just because they’ve seen the movie Malcolm X, where the title character is portrayed by Obama’s true father: Denzel Washington. Yes, Mr. Washington traveled back in time to hook up with Ann Dunham, a liaison which he later depicted in fictionalized form in Deja Vu, just to throw us off.

  24. Taz says

    The truly shocking thing is how many of the Founding Fathers’ fathers were loyal to the British crown.

  25. slc1 says

    Re Nemo @ #33

    That’s quite a trick, considering that Mr. Washington was 6 years old at the time of Obama’s conception.

    “I decided to investigate Frank Marshall Davis. His close physical resemblance to Obama was shocking,

    Hey, all those blacks look the same to me too </snark>

    d cwilson “That was Pam Geller’s idea, which apparently didn’t get any traction based on the rather annoying detail that she couldn’t ever put Ann Dunham and Malcolm X together in the same city, much less the same room.”
    That proves it’s true. Otherwise, why would they try so hard to hide it?

    slc1 “If so, the man was guilty of statutory rape as Ms. Davis was 16 at the time of conception.”
    That just shows how dangerous his offspring must be!

    slc1 “Nemo @ #33 That’s quite a trick, considering that Mr. Washington was 6 years old at the time of Obama’s conception.”
    That just shows how virile and threatening to our white daughters his offspring must be!

    Skip White “…the REAL real truth: Joe Arpaio is Obama’s father.”
    Arpaio: “Obamer, I’mah yer father.”
    Obama: “No. No. That’s not true. That’s impossible!”
    Arpaio: “Search yer heart. Y’all know it must be true.”

  28. says

    I have a vague physical resemblance to Benjamin Franklin (we’re both white). Therefor, I must be Ben’s son. Also, I would claim that if it has his name on it, it must be his property. If it is his property, he being dead and I being his son, I should inherit it. Therefore Jerome Corsi should give me every hundred dollar bill in his wallet.

  29. hotshoe says

    Obama was his own father using the same time machine that he planted his birth certificate with.

    He is also his own mother (see Heinlein for details).

    All you zombies

  30. iangould says

    Personally I always liked the theory (and yes there were people seriously proposing this) that Back Obama Sr. and Ann Dunham had a child in Hawaii in 1961, that Obama Sr took the child with him back to Kenya where the child died and was replaced by his own half-brother (the child of Obama Sr and his Kenyan first wife) who was then smuggled back into the US.

    No no no. We already know who his real mother is. Isn’t it obvious?

    Although, I must say my favorite version is that his father is really Jimi Hendrix. Actually, I’m secretly hoping that one turns out to be true. I mean, how fucking awesome would that be?
