Frank Marshall Davis (1905-1987) mentored Barack Obama in Hawaii in the 1970s. He was a devoted communist, "pro-Soviet, pro-Stalin, pro-Mao..." Kengor reveals that Davis's Communist Party number was 47544 and that he "did terrible, blatant propaganda work" for the international communist movement. Kengor tells us in an article published in the American Thinker that Frank Marshall Davis was introduced to Obama by his grandfather Stanley Dunham in the 1970s, and that he did so for the purpose of mentoring.
According to Kengor, liberal journalists deliberately avoid mentioning Davis in their Obama biographies. Kengor says that even when Obama himself acknowledges Davis ("the latest skeleton his closet"), liberal journalists "do back-flips to avoid him."
