Earlier this week, we told you about “2016: Obama’s America,” a documentary that is highly critical of President Barack Obama. On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter secured a clip from the film, showcasing an intriguing interview between King’s College president and writer Dinesh D’Souza (also the narrator of the film) and George Obama, the president’s half-brother.
The Blaze has secured a second clip from the film. Rather than focusing upon Obama’s relationship with his brother, this exclusive footage delves into the president’s kinship with avowed communist Frank Marshall Davis.
If you’re unfamiliar with this controversial figure, consider Dr. Paul G. Kengor, author of the upcoming Mercury Ink book about Davis called “The Communist,” and his recent Blaze contributor piece in which he further explains who he is. Kengor writes:
I know this area intimately well, given that my next book is on Obama’s mentor during those precise years: Frank Marshall Davis. I will not here lay out the litany of Davis’s astonishing career, but, in essence, he was a literal card-carrying member of Communist Party USA. For decades, he wrote the most harsh, outlandish pro-Soviet material you can imagine, with his worst demons being Democrats like Harry Truman and the men in Truman’s administration—George Marshall among them—who opposed Stalin and the Kremlin during the darkest days of the Cold War.
As I lay out in the book, Davis’s work was so bad that he was called to testify on his “Soviet activities” by the Senate Judiciary Committee (run by Democrats), was carefully investigated by the FBI (Davis’s FBI file is 600 pages long), and, most remarkably, was placed on the federal government’s Security Index—meaning that in the event of war breaking out between the United States and USSR, Davis could be immediately arrested.
And yet, this was the man that Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Dunham, connected to a young Obama for the purpose of mentoring—precisely during these high school years.
Frank Marshall Davis is another of those radical associations in Obama’s past. There are so many, and so unusually bad, that Obama, if he were a typical citizen, probably wouldn’t get a security clearance for an entry-level government job.
In the clip, D’Souza takes viewers through the intriguing — some would argue disturbing — relationship between Obama and Davis. In the footage, D’Souza speaks, in detail, with Kengor about this connection and attempts to break it down for viewers.
