We all know the saying: “You can’t choose your family, but you do choose your friends.”
The other saying that comes to mind is, “Birds of a feather, flock together.”
One must agree that both are absolutely true statements.
After a recent discussion on the topic of whether our President is a Marxist, anti-colonialist, like his dear old mom and dad, I decided to put together a short list of friends, acquaintances, mentors and those who influenced Barack Hussein Obama over the years.
While you scan this list, ask yourself; Is there even a single person within my sphere of influence that is a crook, a felon, a radical, a Marxist, a communist, a Maoist, a terrorist, an anarchist, a radical Muslim or even a socialist?
I hope, for most of us, the answer is no, but if you were Barack Obama, you would have to say Yes.
Ann Dunham [ (Obama’s mother) marxist, socialist]
Anita Dunn (socialist, Maoist)
Tony Rezko (crook, felon)
Bill Ayers (radical, terrorist, anarchist)
Bernadine Dorhn (radical, terrorist, anarchist)
Saul Alinsky (radical, anarchist, Marxist)
Khalid Al-Mansour (radical Muslim, black separatist)
Susan L. Rosenberg (radical, terrorist, anarchist)
Reverend Wright (radical black separatist)
Father Pfleger (radical, socialist)
Valerie Jarrett (socialist, Marxist)
Vernon Jarrett (communist)
Frank Marshall Davis (communist)
Van Jones (communist, radical)
There are many, many more I could name, but this list should suffice in demonstrating just how “out of the mainstream” our dear President is.
I, myself, have a few friends that are liberal, but I believe that to be from ignorance. To remain friends, we don’t speak of politics. I know one person in my life that has spent time in prison. That’s about it. All the rest are basically of like mind, as are yours.
One cannot go through life surrounded by as many ne’er do wells as Obama has without becoming one himself. In my opinion, it’s impossible. Those who think it is possible are delusional.
So, look around at your friends, and then tell me I’m wrong.
