Conservative: Obama's a Secret Commie Baby
Conservative: Obama's a Secret Commie Baby

By Rogers Cadenhead

Watching the Watchers

Even though it's a product of the conservative National Review, I read The Corner because it's a great format for political blogging -- a bunch of writers of similar politics sharing links and exchanging ideas with each other. But sometimes, all that like-mindedness draws out ugly sentiments a political partisan wouldn't normally express in mixed company. For example, Lisa Schiffren thinks that Republicans should dig into Barack Obama's mixed-race parentage, because interracial babies born in the late '50s and early '60s were the product of a Communist conspiracy.

I'm not kidding. This outburst of full-on crazy was posted yesterday to one of the leading conservative web sites on the planet and drew only one response in opposition. Here's Schiffren's justification for muckraking Obama's conception:

http://corner.nationalreview.com/post/?q=YzJkMDE3M2RmNj...

Obama and I are roughly the same age. I grew up in liberal circles in New York City -- a place to which people who wished to rebel against their upbringings had gravitated for generations. And yet, all of my mixed race, black/white classmates throughout my youth, some of whom I am still in contact with, were the product of very culturally specific unions. They were always the offspring of a white mother, (in my circles, she was usually Jewish, but elsewhere not necessarily) and usually a highly educated black father. And how had these two come together at a time when it was neither natural nor easy for such relationships to flourish? Always through politics. No, not the young Republicans. Usually the Communist Youth League. Or maybe a different arm of the CPUSA. But, for a white woman to marry a black man in 1958, or 60, there was almost inevitably a connection to explicit Communist politics. ...


Time for some investigative journalism about the Obama family's background, now that his chances of being president have increased so much.


So if you're the child of black and white parents who is from 45 to 55, you're probably a "red diaper baby" unfit for public office, according to Schiffren.

6. And so it begins
This is an ugly, extreme example of what we're going to face. I don't hold out much hope that the saner elements of the Republican party are going to come out strongly against this type of filth. Nor will the media...in fact, I can see the likes of Russert and Tweety giving Schiffren air time.

11. For debunking purposes:
According to Wikipedia, they met while studying at the East West Center at the University of Hawaii. This is an academic program that was established by the US Congress in 1960, and is not affiliated with communism or any foreign power. Whats-her-face might have done a quick Google search before she paraded her ignorance around on the Internet. Then again, her post wasn't about facts, it was about getting another RW meme out there, wasn't it?

The page which states this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barack_Obama%2C_Sr .

The East West Center:

14. This "Communist" crap is nothing, compared to the "Arab" crap I read this morning.
This guy claims (with absolutely no evidence, whatsoever, that Barack Obama is actually an Arab.

Before you read this tripe, keep in mind that there is no such thing as "legally African-American" or
"legally Arab" or "legally any ethnicity." My husband, the demographer, says that you are what you and
your family claim you to be. The one-drop rule is history, and the nutcase who wrote this particular
piece of crap is just trying to sound "learned" by claiming his "facts in evidence," which are based on
total fiction.

If you decide to wade through that hit piece, keep in mind that Cohen (his NYT pieces
are cited prominently) hasn't replied to Lamb. Because Lamb is a nut.

16. Get used to it.
If Obama is the nominee, you will hear reams of shit ALL about Barak HUSSEIN Obama, Obama/Osama, Obama=Mabus, Manchurian Candidate, etc.

I hope, for your sake, that you have a strong stomach. It's going to get ROUGH.

17. If every elected Dem stood up in unison and condemned this crap...
We might be able to stop it.

Of course, that's what I've wanted Dems to do since 2000!

15. what is this, the 1950s?
commie conspiracy?

yes, obama was conceived and grown as part of a 40 year commie plot, and along the route to manhood obama generated no thoughts on his own, merely preparing to take over the world and bow to his soviet masters once he wins the presidency
