POET FRIEND OF MALCOLM X, ALSO A SENATOR FROM ILLINOIS IN 1998?
by Sharon Rondeau
(Mar. 6, 2012) — The release by the late Andrew Breitbart’s website of a playbill bearing the title “The Vetting, Part 1: Barack’s Love Song to Alinsky” contains the name of a “Sen. Baraka Obama” at the bottom, listing him as an after-performance panelist. Saul Alinsky, who wrote about “revolution” and changing the status quo in American society, is best-known for his book Rules for Radicals, which instructed disillusioned and poor people in how to change their communities by organizing.
If Obama had run for his state senate seat under the name “Barack,” why was he noted on the playbill as “Baraka?” Is it a misspelling, or was Obama using that variation of his first name? Is it the same person? If so, why was Obama’s first name spelled differently from the way in which he was known in the state senate?
The black Muslim civil rights leader Malcolm X had a poet friend who had changed his name to “Amiri Baraka.” The name originates from Arabic, is usually given to a female, and translates to “white” or “blessing.”
Baraka attended several universities without graduating and joined the Air Force but was exposed as a believer in communism and given a dishonorable discharge.
Baraka’s Facebook page contains an entry by one Rastafari Shabazz and a video of his reading of a poem he wrote after 9/11 entitled “Somebody Blew Up America.” “Shabazz” was the last name taken by Malcolm X after he converted to Islam.
Amiri Baraka commented that in a biography of Malcolm X written by Manning Marable, the author “makes judgments” rather than “observations.” Baraka stated:
My point being that Marable must be judged by what he says not by what others say he “intended.” The best thing about the book, of course, is that it raises Malcolm X to the height of our conversation again, and this is a very good thing in this Obama election period. (Post racial it ain’t!)
Baraka claimed that Manning Marable exhibited an “essential ‘disconnection'” in his work and cied as a drawback “Marable’s failure to understand the revolutionary aspects of Black Nationalism, as a struggle for ‘Self Determination, Self Respect and Self Defense.’ A struggle for equal democratic rights expressed on the sidewalks of an oppressor nation by an oppressed Afro American nationality.”
Did Baraka see a connection between Malcolm X and Barack Obama? Baraka denies Marable’s apparent suggestion that Malcolm had extra-marital affairs, but one researcher believes that he did and that “Barack Hussein Obama” is Malcolm’s illegitimate son. Malcolm was reportedly a communist, hence the FBI opening a file on him. In an interview with “Russia Today,” Amiri Barak stated that he “wishes for communism in America” and described Obama’s putative presidency as a “transitional” economic period to socialism.
Is the Obama regime all about “black nationalism?” Is that why his putative Attorney General, Eric Holder, refuses to prosecute “his people” in the wake of clear evidence of crimes? Is it about racism?
Amiri Baraka was not only a poet, but also a playwright described as “giving dramatic expression to the Black experience.” His work was performed at the Castillo Theater for which Dr. Fred Newman was artistic director and whom researcher Martha Trowbridge states is an uncle of “Barack (or Baraka) Obama.” Newman was also a Marxist.
In a piece written about “The Sixties” in February 2009, Author Norman Richmond states that Baraka and Malcolm X had at least one face-to-face meeting in New York City following Malcolm’s 1964 visit to Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, at which time Malcolm had met with the leaders of those countries. Richmond continues:
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.
How was Obama “moved” by Malcolm’s life story? Malcolm X aspired to be a lawyer and a politician. What has Obama become during his lifetime?
Is either of these two men Obama’s biological father, or is it someone else?
There is reportedly information about Obama which the mainstream media did not release prior to the 2008 presidential election, including his affiliations with the Democratic Socialists of America.
The Communist Party USA features red, black and white in it s logo, as does the Saul Alinsky playbill revealed by Breitbart’s company. The CPA endorsed Obama for President in 2008 and has done so again for 2012. What kind of a symbol is Obama to the communist movement in this country?
And what about Baraka?
