Aging, “young” conservative, Dinesh D’Sousa has written a pretty good “profile” of Barack Hussein Obama, in his new book, “The Roots of Obama’s Rage”, if it is anything like his descriptions he reviewed today substituting for Dennis Prager as host of the Dennis Prager Show. Here is a summary found at the D’Sousa Website:
“The real Obama is a man shaped by experiences far different from those of most Americans; he is a much stranger, more determined, and exponentially more dangerous man than you’d ever imagined. He is not motivated by the civil rights struggles of African Americans in the 1960s — those battles leave him wholly untouched. He is not motivated by the socialist or Marxist propaganda that hypnotized a whole generation of wooly-minded academics and condescending liberals — those concepts also leave him cold.
What really motivates Barack Obama is an inherited rage — an often masked, but profound rage that comes from his African father; an anticolonialist rage against Western dominance, and most especially against the wealth and power of the very nation Barack Obama now leads. It is this rage that explains the previously inexplicable, and that gives us a startling look at what might lie ahead.
In The Roots of Obama’s Rage you’ll learn: Why Obama’s economic policies are actually designed to make America poorer compared to the rest of the world Why Obama will welcome a nuclear Iran Why Obama sees America as a rogue nation — worse than North Korea The real reason Obama banished a bust of Winston Churchill from the White House and ordered NASA to praise the scientific contributions of Muslims Why Obama would like to make America’s superpower status a thing of the past
Stunning, provocative, original, and telling — no one has better diagnosed who Obama is, what he intends to do, and why he poses an existential threat to America than Dinesh D’Souza in The Roots of Obama’s Rage.
from the back cover…
We are today living out the script for America and the world that was dreamt up not by Obama but by Obama’s father. How do I know this? Because Obama says so himself. Reflect for a moment on the title of his book: it’s not Dreams of My Father but rather Dreams from My Father. In other words, Obama is not writing a book about his father’s dreams; he is writing a book about the dreams that he got from his father.
Think about what this means. The most powerful country in the world is being governed according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s — a polygamist who abandoned his wives, drank himself into stupors, and bounced around on two iron legs (after his real legs had to be amputated because of a car crash caused by his drunk driving). This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anti-colonial ambitions, is now setting the nation’s agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. The son is the one who is making it happen, but the son is, as he candidly admits, only living out his father’s dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is being governed by a ghost.”
Comment: I was very persuaded by Mr. D’Sousa’s assessments of the president made while hosting the Prager show today.
My argument from his first campaign appearances on television early January, 2008, this was a person manufactured at the modern American university, but was more foreign to the country than American. A stranger, a loner, a man without a sense of humor and friends. No one speaks affectionately about the president from his days gone by. No one.
His inability to be genuine from the very outset, should have disqualified him from from presidential success. Contemporary American blacks live a culture separate from America. Not all of the time when they exit their communities, but many never when they remain home. Many learn ugly untruths about America from very young lives. Others have them stirred while at college……and Mr. Obama went to college.
Yet, Mr. Obama is genetically an equal mix. He chose to be black at a time when to be black is profitable. I think I probably would have done the same, but if I could take my America with me, I could never have belonged to a Jermiah “Hate America” church for twenty two years.
Mr. Obama has chosen Islam and Marxism among his romances. That he has chosen to fulfill his father’s dream to fix up Marxism by creating a romantic socialism…..is very plausible.
