Papers in Florida have been reporting recently on a curious DVD that has been turning up in mailboxes across the state. The video is none other than Joel Gilbert’s “Dreams From My Real Father,” a “documentary” narrated by a fictional Barack Obama claiming that Obama’s mother’s marriage to Barack Obama Sr. was a sham meant to cover up her relationship with labor activist and communist organizer Frank Marshall Davis, the president’s “real father.” Gilbert previously boasted that he sent the DVD to a million households across Ohio, but declines to divulge who is paying for his marketing campaign.
On Friday, Palm Beach’s WPTV reported that Gilbert’s film has managed to swing at least one Florida voter.
When Ron and Judy Cindrick received what was billed as “a must-watch DVD” in their mailbox, they decided to see what “Dreams from My Real Father” was all about.
Judy said what she saw shocked her.
“I was absolutely appalled when I began to watch this and they began to show pictures of Barack Obama’s mother, his supposed mother, naked,” she said.
Ron said watching the pseudo-documentary turns his stomach, and his vote. He believes the Obama conspiracy-type film has to be politically motivated.
“I am a registered Republican, and as of today, I will vote for Barack Obama after receiving this DVD,” said Ron.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the film has also been showing up in mailboxes in Nevada and New Hampshire. In an interview with a Florida radio show on Saturday, Gilbert claimed a version of the film on Netflix Instant Play has been watched by 200,000 people.
