In his autobiography, Barack Obama has admitted that he read Marx and other leftists in college as a strategy for picking up girls.
Obama’s new memoir was released this week, selling nearly 900,000 copies in a single day.
Obama Lusted After “Long-Legged Socialists” And “Ethereal Bisexuals”
In his new memoir, Obama said that arriving at college in 1979, his political opinions were “half-baked,” through his interest in books.
However, he then admits that his “intellectual curiosity” during his college years “paralleled the interests of various women [he] was attempting to get to know”:
Marx and Marcuse so I had something to say to the long-legged socialist who lived in my dorm; Fanon and Gwendolyn Brooks for the smooth-skinned sociology major who never gave me a second look; Foucault and Woolf for the ethereal bisexual who wore mostly black.
Obama then admitted that despite his readings of Marx, Marcuse, Foucault, and Woolf, his “pseudo-intellectualism proved mostly worthless,” finding himself “in a series of affectionate but chaste friendships.”

His comments were widely mocked online, especially the phrase “ethereal bisexual.”
the lowkey misogyny from mr obama here not ideal, but this passage may have launched a thousand ‘ethereal bisexual’ twitter bios, a powerful contribution

The Former President With Hardcore Leftist Influences
It’s no surprise that Obama took up reading Marx in college. It may also not just have sunk into Obama’s mind as a failed way of picking up women, but potentially inspiration into how to do politics.
Frank Marshall Davis, a man mentioned “dozens of times” in his early memoirs, was not only his mentor, but also a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA).
According to Professor Paul Kengor, Davis had a strong influence on Obama in his formative years.
According to Kengor, the strength of Davis’s loyalities to “Stalin’s Soviet Union were so obvious, and so contrary to American interests, that the Democrats who ran the Senate called him to Washington to testify in December 1956 to explain himself.”
Davis was not the only one of Obama’s influencers to be controversial.
Jeremiah Wright, the pastor who officiated at Obama’s wedding, and his “spiritual guide for decades,” is on record for blaming America for 9/11, and calling on God to “damn America for as long as she acts like she is God.”
Wright himself was back in the news recently.
Democratic Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock, a self-described “pro-choice pastor,” is also a fan of Wright.
According to Fox News, Warnock praised Wright’s infamous “God Damn America” sermon.
“No no no, not God bless America, God damn America, that’s in the Bible, for killing innocent people, God damn America for treating her citizens as less than human, God damn America as long as she tries to act like she is God and she is supreme,” Wright is quoted as saying.
