AIM Repeats Obama-Churchill Bust Myth
Topic: Accuracy in Media

Cliff Kincaid and Rusty Weiss write in a July 17 Accuracy in Media article promoting Paul Kengor's conspiracy-mongering, Obama-bashing book " The Communist. Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor":

Paul Kengor says that, in writing his book on Davis, “the most difficult issue always was knowing precisely where and when Davis influenced Obama on specific thoughts and issues, especially in light of what Obama has pursued as president.” But Kengor comes to some interesting conclusions.

“For example,” he tells AIM, “Davis despised Winston Churchill, and one of the first things Obama did as President was return the White House bust of Churchill back to the British. Did Obama’s rejection of Churchill start with Davis? Possibly. Also, Obama has been pro-Russia at the expense of Eastern European allies like the Poles and the Czechs. Well, so was Davis. Was that, too, Davis’s influence? Possibly.”

As we've repeatedly pointed out, the idea that Obama was so offended by the Churchill bust that he demanded it be removed from the Oval Office is a myth. The British Embassy has confirmed that the bust was "uniquely lent" to Bush, and was scheduled to be returned at the end of Bush's term.
