Two developments which drew attention this week are related. Communist former Obama TARP administrator Elizabeth Warren, who is running for Ted Kennedy's old Massachusetts US Senate seat against upstart RINO Sen. Scott Brown, has claimed at least since her college years that she is a Native American, aka has American Indian blood. The other is Newsweek's cover claim that Obama is America's "First Gay President."
What do these two claims have in common? Neither is true, but both are being used as vote-getting credentials. Warren was even named "Person of Color of the Year" at Harvard once, according to Glenn Beck, although she claims only 1/32nd of Cherokee blood.
It turns out even that may be bogus, since the claim is based only on a single scrawl by a nineteenth century ancestor.
The First Gay President?
As to Obama being the first Gay President due to his switch under duress to supporting gay marriage, the logic is akin to when Clinton was hailed as the first Black President for doing something or other which supposedly benefitted them. Suggest you are going to help a group and you become one of them, at least to the extent that you want people to believe you can count on their votes.
But there may be another level at work here. There has been information circulating for some time suggesting that Obama has a number of homosexual relationships in his past.
More recently, like this week, a review of the background of Obama's childhood "mentor," the Communist activit Frank Marshall Davis, who allegedly influenced Obama as a substitute father figure in the crucial age range of ten to eighteen, shows that he wrote a "pornographic" book which included favorable comments about sex with underage boys.
Which raises a question uncomfortable to some: could Obama be in Davis's sexual history? Could this have bisexualized Obama?
These days this would not be a big deal to many Americans, especially since there have been so many efforts over the past few decades to not only promote sexuality equality, but to actually make homosexuality attractive and even "hip." But many still find it repugnant, and it is against the heterosexual tenets and traditions of Christianity.
In any event, certainly introducing the notion that Obama is our first "Gay President" could help forestall the potential political impact of any future undeniable revelations about aspects of Obama's sexual past which might possibly affect the Presidential election vote in a way unfavorable to Obama.
