New York Post ad exposes Obama’s ‘real father’

WND-20-YearsSept. 10, 2012: The New York Post accepted a full-page ad declaring Barack Obama’s real biological father is the late Communist Party activist Frank Marshall Davis, not the Kenyan Barack Hussein Obama.

Filmmaker Joel Gilbert made the case in his full-length documentary “Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception.”

The ad ran in the Post’s New York City, national and international editions.

Convincing the newspaper to accept the full-page ad required Gilbert to go personally to the Post’s main editorial office in Manhattan.

“It took a lot of discussion,” Gilbert told WND, “but we were given a very favorable position at the front of the newspaper in the news section.”

Gilbert told WND the placement of the ad was “part of our national publicity campaign, designed to circumvent the mainstream media that is either too afraid or too corrupt to cover the evidence presented in this film.”

In an effort to reach the voting public directly, Gilbert mailed out millions of DVDs in bulk across the United States.

Two months earlier, Gilbert tried to place a similar version of his full-page advertisement in three of the nation’s most prominent newspapers – USA Today, the Washington Post and the New York Times – offering first to pay USA Today $90,000.

All three newspapers rejected the advertisement, with the New York Times specifically telling Gilbert, “The ad isn’t for us.”

“You would think the print media could use the money,” Gilbert told WND at the time. “But apparently, an ideological bias toward supporting Barack Obama is more important to the newspapers than the money.”
