Storyline

At age 18, Barack Obama admittedly arrived at Occidental College a committed revolutionary Marxist. What was the source of Obama's foundation in Marxism? Throughout his 2008 Presidential campaign and term in office, questions have been raised regarding Barack Obama's family background, economic philosophy, and fundamental political ideology. Dreams from My Real Father is the alternative Barack Obama "autobiography," offering a divergent theory of what may have shaped our 44th President's life and politics. In Dreams from My Real Father, Barack Obama is portrayed by a voiceover actor who chronicles Barack Obama's life journey in socialism, from birth through his election to the Presidency. The film begins by presenting the case that Barack Obama's real father was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA propagandist who likely shaped Obama's world view during his formative years. Barack Obama sold himself to America as the multi-cultural ideal, a man who stood above politics. Was ... Written by Joel Gilbert

Wonderful - takes less than 3 minutes online to debunk!
3 November 2012 | by (New York, US) – See all my reviews

Here is how you do it:

1. Listen to the "Obama quote" played over a montage towards the end of the film, where it sounds like he says the following:

"There are millions of working families in this country who are now forced to take their children to food banks for a decent meal. The free market, it doesn't work. It has never worked."

Doesn't sound quite right, does it?

2. Type in "President Obama Speaks on the Economy" in a search engine and click on the video on the White House website.

3. Play minute mark 23:23-23:30 4. Go back and play 10:58-11:01 5. Go forward to 16:18-16:22

More concerned about those dirty pictures? They were published in the magazine Erotique, which was published 1955- 1959. All issues of Erotique are scanned and uploaded online, available for free on the website retrojunkie. See for instance issue 23, picture 2, which is featured in this film as a picture of Ann Dunham. The copywrite year, 1958, is visible.

Since people who believe this movie have maintained that those are probably photoshopped (the irony), Collins also made a video where he flips through the pages of "The Complete Erotique" and zooms in on each featured picture. He posted it on youtube and it's titled "Fever Dreams of My Father".

There is of course much much more I could add, but I think that gives a pretty good idea of the quality of this film.
