Obama's Father Was a Polygamist- His Mother Was Wife #2
Barack Obama’s father was a polygamist.
His mother, Ann Dunham, was Barack Obama Senior’s second wife. His first wife was in Africa. His third wife(?) Ruth was white and his eighth child was by a different African woman. He had 8 children by 4 different women.
Barack Obama stands with a few of his family members including militant Muslim activist and brother Abongo.
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. (Sun Times)
Barack Obama stands behind Kezia (stepmother) in a Kenyan family shot. Included in the photo is brother Abongo “Roy” Obama who is a Luo activist and a militant Muslim who argues that the black man must “liberate himself from the poisoning influences of European culture.”
Obama Sr moved to Nairobi, where he took a correspondence course to complete his schooling, studying at night while working as an office clerk by day. He wrote to dozens of US universities. The University of Hawaii replied, offering him a scholarship. Leaving behind his infant son, Roy, and his young wife, Kezia, who was pregnant with their daughter, Auma, he flew to America.
Being the university’s first African student did not discourage him. He graduated top of his economics class. He married a white student from Kansas, Ann Dunham, and they had a son, who he gave his full name: Barack Hussein Obama.
Obama Sr continued his studies at Harvard, but his marriage soon faltered. When he returned to Nairobi a few years later it was with a different white American woman, Ruth. Together, they had two children. But Obama Sr was still seeing his first wife, Kezia, on the side, and she bore him two more sons. Later, as ethnic rivalries hampered his career as a senior government official – the Obamas are Luo, while the government was largely Kikuyu-dominated – and as he increasingly turned to drink, he had an eighth child by another Kenyan woman.
Kristopher Kahn adds this–
“And, the media gave Mitt Romney sh*t for being Mormon?”
UPDATE: This is odd…
Jim Geraghty wonders why the Obama Campaign will not release his birth certificate?
Maybe Obama does not want people to know that his father was a bigamist?
