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

Right-Wing Racist Trash
31 October 2012 | by dbrown1793See all my reviews

Just when you think the right-wing can't sink any deeper into the gutter, they surprise you. This "documentary" will take its place in history alongside every pseudo-scientific film Joseph Goebbels and the Nazis created to "prove" Jews were a sub-human species. The "plot" of "Dreams From My Real Father" is not worth discussing because it lacks any facts whatsoever. It is an election prompted piece of character assassination.

The good news is that when screened to un-decided voters at various focus group gatherings in the swing states, the response was universal revulsion. The vast majority of Americans are decent people and were justifiably repelled by the blatant lies, racism and sexism that is on display here.

It is interesting that Amazon and Netflix both categorize this film in the same genre as Dinesh D'Souza's laughable "2016" and docs about the mentally unbalanced Ayn Rand whose philosophy of greed and selfishness is a favorite of the Tea Party movement. If they included documentaries denying the Holocaust, it would be complete.
