WND columnist Jack Cashill :Frank Marshall Davis ‘Quite Possibly’ Had Sex With ‘Underage Obama’
We previously noted that WorldNetDaily columnist Jack Cashill — purveyor of the conspiracy theory that Bill Ayers authored Barack Obama’s Dreams From My Father — suggested that Obama may actually be “the illegitimate son of an American black.” Cashill is now promoting a new book and making further wild claims: this time, that “drunken poet” Frank Marshall Davis was “plying the underage Obama with alcohol and quite possibly sex.”
From Cashill’s March 10 WorldNetDaily column:
“On the Hawaii front, Obama had to worry too about what [Chicago Tribune reporter David] Mendell would learn about poet, pornographer and card-carrying member of the CPUSA, Frank Marshall Davis.
That relationship between Obama and Davis is succinctly illustrated in the poem “Pop,” which was published under the 19-year-old Obama’s name in a 1981 edition of an Occidental College literary journal.
Instinctively protective of Obama, reviewers to a person decided that the “Pop” of the poem had to be Obama’s mother’s father, Stanley Dunham, the man Obama called “Gramps.”
Not a one of them asked the most basic question: Why would Obama name a poem about the man he called “Gramps” “Pop”?
Rebecca Mead, writing in the New Yorker, unhesitatingly describes the poem as a “loving if slightly jaded portrait of Obama’s maternal grandfather.”
Obama biographer David Remnick makes the same point, “‘Pop,’” he says as though a given, “clearly reflects Obama’s relationship with his grandfather Stanley Dunham.”
More oblivious still is British poet Ian McMillan. “There’s a humanity in the poem,” he writes in the Guardian, “a sense of family values and shared cultural concerns that give us a hint of the Democrat to come.”
Family values? What family? Roman Polanski’s? The “Pop” of the poem is a drunken poet who is plying the underage Obama with alcohol and quite possibly sex. “
Wow. How does one even respond intelligently to something like this?
