Oops! Dem Governor Bashes Romney for Polygamist Roots – Forgets About Obama’s Polygamist DAD

By: Rachel Pulaski

The Luo Tribe has a long history of polygamy…

In this Obama Family photo are: (bottom row, from left) half-sister Auma, her mother Kezia Obama, Obama’s step-grandmother Sarah Hussein Onyango Obama and unknown; (top row, from left) unknown, Barack Obama, half-brother Abongo (Roy) Obama, and three unknowns.

On Thursday Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer decided to go after Romney’s family history regarding polygamy stating Hispanics would not approve of such a history.  So it is only fair to point out that President Obama’s family has a history of polygamy and bigamy as well.  Yet the majority of Hispanics voted for President Obama in 2008.

The Washington Post reported:

“The line of polygamists in Obama’s family can be traced back generations in western Kenya, where it was an accepted practice within the Luo (pronounced LOO-oh) tribe.” His great-grandfather, Obama Opiyo, had five wives, including two who were sisters. His grandfather, Hussein Onyango, had at least four wives, one of whom, Akumu, gave birth to the president’s father, Barack Obama” before fleeing her abusive husband. Obama Sr. was already married when he left Kenya to study at the University of Hawaii, where he married again. His American wife-to-be, Stanley Ann Dunham, was not yet 18 and unaware of his marital situation when she became pregnant with his namesake son in 1961.

It is also well known that Democrat Senator from New Mexico, Tom Udall, and his cousin, Senator Mark Udall (D) from Colorado, come from a long line of polygamists. But that was never an issue because they are Democrats.
Mens Journal reported:

In the Udall family, politics stretches back generations. Mark’s and Tom’s great-grandfather, David King Udall, was a pioneer Arizonan and a Mormon polygamist who was sent to federal prison (on testimony of an ancestor of Mitt Romney’s, family lore has it). He was pardoned by President Grover Cleveland, then tossed back in jail. This time, it was Barry Goldwater’s grandfather who got him off the hook.

It’s only ever an issue if the politician is Republican.

    The Democrats have for many years been protected, by a solicitous media, from having to deal with their improprieties, character and ethical lapses, and real crimes. Now they are discovering how complicated the glass house they inhabit is.

    The biased media have set the Democrats up for any number of embarrassments, however, behind all of this is the enabling media itself.

    “Obama Opiyo, had five wives, including two who were sisters”
    and perhaps we now know why obummer is so fukked up…inbreeding causes mental ilness.

    Hey Dems! WE have a media wing now too!

  • BurmaShave

    (top row) Barack Obama, half-brother Abongo (Roy) Obama, and four miscellaneous close but unknown relatives (unknown, just the same as most of our President’s past).

    There, fixed it for ya.

    Isn’t it a colossal shame that we permit ourselves to be governed by one such as this.

    Yellow dog Democrats did not vote in an ACTUAL yellow dog, but Obama is definitely the closest thing they could come up with.

    Something funny, you racist bigot?

  • 1RedBeard

    I know this is serious business, but I can’t stop laughing at the comical Dems as they frantically spin in circles, arms flailing, spittle flying, in failed attempt after failed attempt to defend Obama the Puppy Eater.

    Add this clown to the list. It’s gonna be a fun summer.

    Now you’ve done it. You’ve gone and hurt liberal Sam’s wittle feelings.
    How dare you?

    BTW, if you listen to Rush, he references Abongo frequently. This is the brother who lives on a hundred bucks a month, or some ridiculously low figure, who gets no assistance from his own brother, the millionaire.
    I guess when you look at it that way, maybe Obama is the bigot. Maybe he hates Africans, even his own brother.

    no doubt a segue for the allowance of 4 wives.. /s/

    All kidding aside, it does sound like the Dems are the racists here? Where do they get off saying the “Hispanics” wouldn’t approve of polygamy? Like all Hispanics think alike right?
    That doesn’t strike you as bigoted?

    BTW, if Hispanics had a problem with polygamy, then how is it Romney’s grandfather fled to Mexico to pursue a polygamist lifestyle? Man you libs confound yourselves ideologically!

    Ayatollah Khomeini’s Religious Teachings
    on Marriage, Divorce and Relationships

    [“A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual act such as forplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not comitted a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man’s four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl’s sister.”]

    one of my fav exposing the media article’s:

    MSNBC Senior Political Analyst admits
    he’s afraid to criticize Islam publicly ..

    [HH: Would you say the same things about
    Mohammed as you just said about Joseph Smith?

    LO’D: Oh, well, I’m afraid of what the…that’s where I’m really afraid.
    I would like to criticize Islam much more than I do publicly, but I’m
    afraid for my life if I do.

    HH: Well, that’s candid.

    LO’D: Mormons are the nicest people
    in the world. They’re not going to ever…

    HH: So you can be bigoted towards Mormons,
    because they’ll just send you a strudel.

    LO’D: They’ll never take a shot at me. Those other
    people, I’m not going to say a word about them.

    HH: They’ll send you a strudel. The Mormons
    will bake you a cake and be nice to you.

    LO’D: I agree.

    HH: Lawrence O’Donnell, I appreciate your candor.]

    #5 Exactly.
    It’s too early in the morning for that one.
    I am sick sick sick of all of this religon talk. To me it is all bigotry. But if the left is already going to start with this Mormon thing, which I’m already sick of hearing out of the evangelicals, then let them have it. Go right back at them. Obama;s polygamist roots and then there is old Rev. Wright
    And double down on Islam while at it. #13 quote is a good place to start.

    Well, well, well. What do you know?


    They could have released this on day one.

    Little too late, ABC. Now spin your narrative another 2000 RPM.
