IS HE THE FATHER OF “BARACK OBAMA?”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Nov. 4, 2011) — On November 2, 2011, blogger Martha Trowbridge published an article which contended that Barack Hussein Obama II is a manufactured identity for the son of black supremacy activist Malcolm X.
Malcolm X was born in 1925 in Omaha, NE to a homemaker and Baptist minister who reportedly supported Marcus Garvey, a proponent of “black nationalism” and the “Back-to-Africa” movement. Garvey has been described as having laid the framework for the Nation of Islam.
Like his father, Malcolm X became a minister, but in the Muslim rather than the Christian faith. Having converted to Islam while serving a prison sentence, Malcolm X became prominent in the organization until 1964, when he left and founded his own group, Muslim Mosque, Inc., which developed ties to larger Islamic organizations and universities.
Malcolm X traveled widely in Africa and made a pilgrimage to Mecca in 1964, after which he changed his name to El-Hajj Malik al-Shabazz. Malcolm X gave a speech in Cairo during his travels. Barack Hussein Obama II gave a speech there in 2009.
On April 27, 2010, The Washington Post “mistook” a photo of Malcolm X for Barack Hussein Obama, publishing it in place of a photo of Obama featuring his visit to an Iowa wind energy facility.
Malcolm X reportedly preached that “the white man was the devil.” He advocated “voter education” over civil rights and voter “legislation” passed by Congress. During the early 1960s, blacks were referred to as “Negroes.” Malcolm X called Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. an “Uncle Tom.” After his pilgrimage to Mecca, Malcolm X reportedly abandoned his black separatist views to the surprise of many of his followers.
On October 16, 2011, Obama spoke at a dedication ceremony of a statue honoring Dr. King.
Attorney Percy Sutton worked for Malcolm X and his family “for several decades” and also described Barack Hussein Obama II as “brilliant” and deserving of a Harvard education. Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, a “top Saudi advisor,” reportedly financed Obama’s education there. Al-Mansour has his own page on the Aswat al-Islam website and has accused “Christian founders” of “participating in segregation.”
There has been speculation that Stanley Ann Dunham and Barack Hussein Obama Sr. were never married and that there is no “relationship between the Obamas and the Dunhams.
Are there physical resemblances between Obama and Malcolm X?
Both became public speakers.
A writer for a “black” newspaper opined:
Unlike other U.S. presidents, President Obama knows who Malcolm was and what he stands for. Like many males with African roots, President Obama was moved by Malcolm’s life story. A cursory reading of his autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” will prove this point…
When Malcolm visited Africa in 1964, he visited Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. It was during that trip that he met with Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta, Ugandan President Dr. Milton Obote, and President Julius K. Nyerere and Muhammad Babu of Tanzania. Babu, Malcolm and Leroi Jones (now Amiri Baraka) held a meeting during this period in New York City. Malcolm talked about meeting President Kenyatta. Malcolm, however, was also aware of Kenya’s Oginga Odinga.
Did Malcolm X also have a son? A biography of Malcolm’s life written by Columbia University professor Manning Marable suggests that he was not faithful to his wife, nor she to him. Marable died just before his work on Malcolm X was published.
