The man who heavily influenced U.S. Sen. Barack Obama during his
growing years wrote poetry praising the aggression of communism,
criticizing "Sweet Jesus" and mocking the traditional hymn "Onward
Christian Soldiers," according to an advocate for media accuracy.

WND reported earlier when Cliff Kincaid wrote at Accuracy in Media
about the link between Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the old
Moscow-controlled Communist Party USA, and Obama, who cited a
mysterious "Frank" in his book

Now Kincaid has uncovered poetry written by Davis that hails the
Soviet Union's Red Army, with a call to "Smash on, victory-eating
Red Army," and a wide range of attacks on or mockery of Christianity.

"One Davis poem, 'Christ is a Dixie Ni—er,' dismisses Christ as 'another
New White Hope' and declares: 'Remember this, you wise guys Your
tales about Jesus of Nazareth are no-go with Me I've got a dozen
Christs in Dixie all bloody and black…," Kincaid said.

He said the poems from Davis are in the book "Black Moods" which
was edited by John Tidwell, a University of Kansas professor and
expert on Davis' writings. He confirmed to Kincaid that Davis joined
the Communist Party but that he publicly tried to deny his affiliations.

"Davis' poem, 'To the Red Army,' says that 'rich industrialists' in
Washington and London wanted Hitler to win and 'wipe Communism
from the globe,'"Kincaid said, adding, "One Davis poem, 'Onward
Christian Soldiers,' mocks the Christian hymn by the same name. It
talks of Africans being killed with 'Christian gun' instead of a spear
by the missionaries following 'the religion of Sweet Jesus.'
