Conservatives Call Obama’s Deceased Mother A Fat Slut

Obama’s America by Dinesh D’Souza takes the conservative, Tea Party fringe message to a new low. It seems the fringe feel frustrated that they have been unable to convince Americans with brains that Obama is really a Kenyan, an evil socialist and the Anti-Christ, so the only thing left in their loathsome arsenal of lies is to call Obama’s deceased mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, a slut and a whore. Yes, you read that right.

In his book, D’Souza paints Dunham as a neglectful mother so busy sleeping around Indonesia that she had no time for her son. She is depicted as a sexual predator who, despite being ‘heavy,’ pretends to be surprised she that was able to have as much sex as she did.


You may also be aware of the documentary Dreams Of My Real Father by Joel Gilbert. In a recent speech to a Republican women’s group, Alabama GOP Chairman Bill Armistead promoted the film. The premise is that Obama’s ‘real’ father, Frank Marshall Davis, was a Communist party organizer. The film makes the claim that Davis took bondage pictures of Obama’s mother and sold them to men’s magazines. “These photos were taken a few weeks before 1960, when mom was about five weeks pregnant with me,” the narrator says. “Frank then sold the photos to men’s mail-order catalogues.” Gilbert claims that over a million copies of his disgusting video have been mailed to voters in Ohio, Nevada and New Hampshire.

A little research proves that Gilbert is a liar looking to fuel the fires of the ignorant and uninformed who will not take the time to investigate facts. Gilbert uses pictures of 1950s pin-up model Marcy Moore and tries to pass them off as if they are Dunham, to whom Moore bears a faint resemblance. The pictures used in the film were published between 1955 and 1959. Stanley Ann Dunham was born in 1942. The numbers and the story don’t add up.

Stanley Ann Dunham is nothing like these horrible men paint her to be. It is sickening what this president has had to endure, and singling out his deceased mother and calling her a fat slut, well, you can’t go lower than that. What makes matters worse is that Republican politicians are embracing and promoting this blatant, hateful propaganda.

Please take a moment to read a little truth, to cleanse your mind of the poison you just read and see what kind of woman Ann Dunham really was: A woman with compassion and who inspired many.
