With Barack Obama's upcoming visit to his ailing grandmother in the news (though I have yet to see it covered on FOX News beyond a brief mention in the headlines), a reader sent me this vile 2007 article accusing Obama of hiding his grandmother in order to pretend he has no white relatives. Why? Because he's racist, according to the author. And who wrote that article? One of Sean Hannity's own radical associations, Andy Martin, the same guy recently given a friendly platform on Hannity's America.
The article originally appeared in Newsmax and is entitled “Free Obama's White Grandmother.” Apparently, it has been removed from Newsmax but it is available in its entirety here. An excerpt:
America's media have supinely allowed Barry Obama to pretend he has no white relatives. He has paraded his step-grandmother in Kenya, who never saw him until the 1980s, as his "granny," and locked the grandmother who actually raised him away in a closet.
Now, the Chicago Tribune reports "the Obama campaign declined to make [his white grandmother] available."
Is she sick? Not apparently. Bedridden? Hospitalized? Not apparently. She is the "Prisoner of Obama," and of Obama's racist myth that he is "Black" and not "Black and White."
What a disgrace.
The real disgrace is that Hannity offered Martin as a credible expert on Obama and FOX News allowed it.
