OBAMA, MALCOLM X, and MICHELLE’S RED & BLACK DRESS

I continue to be surprised by what fires people’s imaginations and passions. I have blogged about a wide variety of issues and topics, some serious, some not so much. The post that continues to draw the most interest is the one on Michelle Obama’s decision to wear that red & black dress with the X in the front … the decision to dress her entire family in those colors the night Barack won the 2008 election for president. You can read about it here.

My visceral reaction to the pictures each and every time I view them has not abated when seen through the prism of rebellion or defiance. But what if there was another way of viewing these pictures of the Obama’s all dressed up in red and black? What if the garb worn by the Obama’s was a silent tribute to Barack’s real father, Malcolm X?

I know anyone that has followed this blog and my positions on BHO’s ineligibility to hold the office of POTUS will find the following to be surprising. If the truth be known, I would be relieved to find out Obama’s real father is Malcolm X. Why? Because the alternative is many times worse.

Having a fraud become president is unthinkable. Having a man who is knowingly ineligible to hold the office because he never met the eligibility requirements as detailed in the Constitution will harm this country in ways that cannot tolerated. The consequences are far reaching and potentially devastating.

The evidence against his being eligible to hold the office of POTUS continues to accumulate on a daily basis. Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, aka Barry Dunham is not a “natural born citizen” regardless if he was born in Hawaii (as he alleges) or he was born in Kenya which multiple lawsuits contend and which his paternal grandmother say is the truth.

The story Team Obama continues to foist on the world is that his father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., was a Kenyan. His father was also British citizen thus making Barry a British citizen as well, because his citizenship would have been determined by the father’s nationality. Since Barack’s mother was 17 and underage at the time of his birth, her nationality was moot. Like it or not, that was the law of the land in 1961. Even if his mother’s age could be discounted, because Barack would have held a dual citizenship at the time of birth, he would still be ineligible. Complicating all of this, is his mother’s second marriage to Lolo Soetoro and Barack’s adoption by his step-father. Lolo was Indonesian; now we’ve got yet a third country that impacts on Barry’s citizenship.

What if this entire story isn’t true and what does this have to do with Michelle Obama’s red & black dress, the one she worn in Grant Park the night Barack became the President Elect? Well, plenty if I’m right.

The supreme irony is that if Malcolm X is Obama’s father then Obama meets the eligibility requirements of the Constitution! Malcolm X was a natural born citizen thus making Barack (Barry?) a natural born citizen. The worst case scenario is that if Barack were born in Kenya he would face (essentially) the same issues that John McCain faced! But back to Michelle’s red & black dress.

I know I am not the first to suggest that Obama’s father may be Malcolm X. This connection has been brought up before at Atlas Shrugs, Oil for Immigration, and on Polarik’s site using (as best I can determine) information that originated with Israel Insider. Other than idle curiosity, there hasn’t been much else to tie Obama to Malcolm. But then we’ve got that image of Obama’s in Grant Park, the red and black dress and that X that hits you between the eyes . . . an insult to the senses because the dress is so entirely out of place. It hard not to shout, “America’s next First Family shouldn’t be dressed these colors of defiance! Where are the various shades of red, white, and blue?”

Then suddenly it smacks you in the face . . . that X is for Malcolm. That X on the front of Michelle’s dress and those colors are for Malcolm. What other reason can there be? Sudden bad taste or a horrendous lack of sensitivity to the historical significance of the colors chosen for the very first photos of the Obama’s? In a campaign this carefully orchestrated and staged with the deliberate associations to the Kennedy’s how does it suddenly become feasible that a faux pas of this magnitude would be allowed?

Let’s cobble a few more interesting notes about Malcolm’s name.

In 1952, after he was released from prison, Malcolm changed his last name from Little toX, a designation that denotes “a certain mystery, a certain possibility of power in the eyes of one’s peers and one’s enemies …The ‘X’; announced what you had been and what you had become: Ex-smoker, Ex-drinker, Ex-Christian, Ex-slave.” and is also intended as a rejection of slave names.


X is also a brand that many slaves received on their upper arms. Though likely the most famous Black Muslim to change his name to X, Malcolm was one of many who eventually adopted this practice.

He was tall and handsome and when he walked into a room, he took it over. These things were important. And when he spoke, he could talk our talk in a way that made people understand right off.” Remind you of anyone? Barack, perhaps?

If you are under 30 you probably have very little idea who Malcolm X was. For more complete understanding of his life see additional video here.

Make no mistake the 60’s were a violent time. The black revolution was beginning . . . this was a time of conflict where most black leaders were looked at in a negative manner. Malcolm X, although very controversial, was not an extremist like Farrakhan was and remains to this day. Malcolm could rightly be called an extremist initially, but he came to believe that the races could live and work together.

Malcolm left the Nation of Islam as a matter of principle. It cost him his life.

Like many of us who change and grow into maturity, Malcolm at the end of his life was much different than the Malcolm of his youth. During this time, Malcolm became a guest of Muhammed Faisal (son of then Prince Faisal), and Malcolm made a pilgrimage to Mecca, an event that changed his life. He believed, through Muslim teachings, that all racial barriers could be overcome.

Malcolm returned from Mecca a Sunni Muslim, a changed man. He also bore a new name, El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. This is from Lessons from Malcolm X

Below is an excerpt of a powerful speech Malcolm gave upon his return:

“Human rights are something you were born with?.In the past, yes I have made sweeping indictments of all white people. I will never be guilty of that again (emphasis mine) as I know now that some white people are truly sincere, that some truly are capable of being brotherly toward a black man…Since I learned the truth in Mecca, my dearest friends have come to include all kinds, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Agnostics, even Atheists My friends today are black, brown, red, yellow and white While in Mecca, for the first time in my life, I could call a man with blond hair and blue eyes my brother.”

Ok, so what’s the truth? Is Malcolm X or Barack Hussein Obama Sr. BHO’s father? I don’t know. Is Barack really a Muslim . . . the Freudian slip with George Stephanopoulos indicates he is. I really don’t know. There is a mountain of compelling evidence that supports several positions on Barack’s birth father and his religion.

Here’s what I do know. Stanley Ann Dunham was a complicated woman, a woman with a past more interesting than what we’ve been led to believe, regardless who Barack’s father really is. This is a family whose lives are clothed in secrets.

Something else I know is that this is a tragedy of epic proportions if Malcolm X really was BHO’s father. Imagine having to deny your real identity on a daily basis because somewhere along a line a decision was made that it was better to be known as the “son” of Barack Obama Sr. than to acknowledge that you are the son of Malcolm X.

In the desire to become president, was this denial born out of expediency because Malcolm X was a Muslim. America might tolerate a multi-cultural man as president . . . but after 9/11 does anyone think a Muslim would have any chance at the office? Again, I don’t know. I do know that the truth has a way of always coming out . . . that secrets kept in the dark have a way of finding the light of day.

    In reality, it is moot who Obama’s biological father is. With the “discovery” of his parents’ divorce papers, we now have proof that his parents were married, that his legal father is Barack Obama I, and that Obama II consequently inherited British citizenship at birth — he is not a natural born U.S. citizen.

    I think you misread the post.

    I was talking about Obama’s mother. “Since Barack’s mother was 17 and underage at the time of his birth, her nationality was moot.”

    But, BTW, even with the discovery of the divorce papers, it doesn’t mean or prove Obama Sr. was Obama’s father. All it proves is that the sham and fictional story Obama’s mother told him about his early life continued into the divorce.

    Let’s be honest, Obama’s mother was “free spirit” (I’m being kind) a woman that many would consider had lived a checkered past. It wouldn’t be the first time a woman lied about a birth father to her offspring. It also wouldn’t be the first time a man decided to go along with the sham. Just saw a story on Lifetime with that scenario.

    I have a family member who lied to her child and all the family members on both sides about who her daughter’s
    father was. I’m not sure if the “father” knew or not, but when they divorced he paid child support for a child that wasn’t his.

    All the divorce papers prove is that Stanley Ann divorced Obama Sr. that there was one child under age and one child over 18yrs. They don’t prove parentage.

    At this point, the only thing I will believe is a DNA test because those results can’t be messed with. The reporting of the results can be messed with, but that’s a different story!

    I see that posts that are not agreed with by the author of this page are deleted. Freedom of speech is an American belief that we spend our whole lives knowing, and respecting. So the author of this page gets to say what he “thinks” but no one else has the “freedom of speech” to say anything else. My original post was,
    How can you just say malcolm x is barack obamas father with no proof at all. Theres no proof that his mother even met malcolm x. If i was to say that John Mcains real father was Adolf Hitler, my arguement would carry just as much weight as this outlandish accusation by the author of this page. (get me some proof) I look a lot like a young goldie hawn, that doesnt mean shes my mother!

    And really, how dare you attack this mans whole family. The reason that the terrorists hate us is because we are greedy, sex driven, fat, lazy, rude, pig headed and most of all INTOLERANT people. Being muslim is NOT A CRIME. There are over a billion muslims on this earth who are peaceful loving people with families and jobs and homes and do all the things that good “christian” families do.I hope obama is a muslim so that he can bridge the divide between our closed minded egotistical selves and other countries and religions. We have such a bad standing in the world right now that we need someone to carry our message of peace to them. Obama is the man to do it. I love his shade.

    By the way, Obama is doing a hell of a job so far. Way to go! I am a great american, and I love my country. I love my race. I love my religion. I love my fellow countrymen. You should try it…

    The comparison photos were the biggest giveaway that this is a satirical site! Reasonably funny, though really, the photos are just a trifle too much gilding for the lily. They are both black and wear glasses! Uh – HUH! Father and SOn.. and for double impact — they both smile!! Man, how come it took solong for the world to wake up? Heh. YOu have a future in comedy, Sir.

  6. sportsone234

    To GodAlways: UR a jerk

    To Webber: It is clear you did not read the entire post, if you did you would have found a positive connection between Obama and Malcolm. BTW, fool, U can address me as Ms.

    To Ashley: The comparison to Malcolm X was not pejorative. In fact, had you read the post in its entity you would have found that I find Malcolm a man of integrity, unlike Obama the fraud and Usurper.

    Malcolm said: “Since I learned the truth in Mecca, my dearest friends have come to include all kinds, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Agnostics, even Atheists My friends today are black, brown, red, yellow and white While in Mecca, for the first time in my life, I could call a man with blond hair and blue eyes my brother.”

    The pity is, if Obama really is Malcolm’s son, rather than embrace one of the great civil rights leaders of the 60’s, he dissed him . . . choosing instead to continue the fairytale spun by his mother Stanley Ann. Why?

    “In the desire to become president, was this denial born out of expediency because Malcolm X was a Muslim. America might tolerate a multi-cultural man as president . . . but after 9/11 does anyone think a Muslim would have any chance at the office?”

  7. This is an old post, but I have just heard about this connection with Malcolm X and am intrigued. It would certainly prove his natural citizenship. And I too do not find it in any way a negative ( the possible biological father/son relationship); on the contrary, I find it profound, and full of all kinds of meaning , historical and cultural. The resemblance is striking, and goes far beyond the glasses and smiling and being African. The only thing I find a bit “off” is the ‘X’ on the dress, and the colors. The colors are modern (people wear black to weddings now) and the daughters needed to match their mother’s dress. The X never struck me; it is the new cumberbune effect.

    SMK:

    Thanks for taking the time to read the entire post.

    There are many subtitles and nuances the average reader (skimmer) usually misses. It is indeed, sad that Malcolm could be BHO’s father, a father he has chosen to distance himself from and deny.

    As for the red & black colors, as my first post on this topic alluded to, they may represent protest colors. Colors can make powerful statement.

    As an aside, since the Obama’s have done nothing to squelch a Kennedy family comparison, it should come as no surprise, that when they don’t meet that standard that people would notice.

    Jackie, was a style icon. She would never have made the mistake (intentional or not) that Michelle made.

  9. Thank you for the clarification. Indeed, red and black can signify protest, anger, mourning, passion: Not exactly the colors one would pick for such a milestone and nationally-televised event. To tell the truth, I was a bit perplexed at the time, and then told myself it might just be “the new thing”. Perhaps the color choice and the “X” were subconsciously intended, while the conscious mind rationalized it as dramatic or avant garde. It is interesting to think that Malcolm X may be linked to this presidency; the resemblance is uncanny. Thank you for your remarks.

    I can’t remember when, sometime last September maybe, I spend a whole evening (with anti-nausea medicine near by) watching obambi and malcolm x vidios side-by-side as well as pictures.

    The resemblance is SHOCKING to me! Even upon scrolling down your page and seeing the comparison I get a jolt at the uncanny even frightening resemblance.

    I have said for at least a year-and-a-half, maybe even two years now that this is the “Manchurian Candidate”. Recalling the 60’s and the times it would not be far-fetched to think that Malcolm and his ilk would hatch a plot to make a half-black, half-white “every-man” to execute their ambitions from the grave.

  11. Yes, the resemblance is shocking. And yes, the idea of such a scheme is completely congruent with ’60s ideology. Of course, I am neutral as to all this. But I can’t argue that point.

  12. Annette

    The Malcom X speculation is fascinating but the established facts are disturbing.

    BHO found it necessary to establish his personal history by writing 2 autobiographies. Kids today spend undue time writing about themselves…but since Barack grew up in an earlier, less self-centered era, his level of self-absorption is remarkable.

    It’s also remarkable that Barack lacked connection with his mother to such an extent that he’s said she provided him only scarce information about her relationship with Barack Sr. But similar lack or withholding of information – even lying – was characteristic of many teenage moms and their parents from BHO’s mother’s era (my own teen years were in the early 60s). Barack has done well to mine his personal history from the murky, sketchy factoids the Dunhams provided him (By the way, does anyone else find the dearth of photos from his childhood depressing?).

    On a personal level, I feel sad Barack was so cruelly deprived of clear facts about his own history. But, given he’s sought and obtained the most powerful political position in the world today, that emotion is one we can little afford.

    The annals of history are populated with powerful leaders plagued with deep hunger for acceptance and identity. What have they have wrought in the nations they’ve led? If we can learn from history, we should be gravely concerned.

  13. Annette:

    You know, millions of us would just like to know the truth. Whatever the truth is, I’m sure the country is strong enough to handle it.

    As long as Team Obama continues to refuse to show beyond any shadow of doubt that BHO meets the eligibility requirements for POTUS, along with a host of other outstanding issues (Malcolm certainly being one of them) his presidency is forever marred.

    History and time will show whether his is a fraud; and it all trickles down. If the man is a fraud, so is his presidency.

    Like I said in the post, this is a family clothed in secrets.
