Community Agitator-In-Chief Obama Never Saw Himself As An ‘American’ – On His OWN View

This is kind of funny, in a sick, twisted, ironic sort of way.  Remember how Democrats demonized anybody who in any way, shape or form drew attention to Obama’s middle name “Hussein” as “racist”???  And then Barack Hussein HIMSELF took the oath of office using his middle name???  Yeah, in the same way anybody who in any way, shape or form questioned Obama’s patriotism or questioned his commitment to America had to be a racist; but now we find out that Obama HIMSELF WAS QUESTIONING HIS COMMITMENT TO AMERICA:

In new biography, Obama asks: Am I an American?

Ever since the 2008 campaign, many voters, and some journalists too, have felt they know Barack Obama’s life story. In fact, the story they know is the one Obama told them.

Obama’s first memoir, “Dreams from My Father,” published in 1995, has become the semi-official record of his life. But it is not the complete record of his life. It’s partially fictionalized, with composite characters that Obama has always acknowledged were created to make the story read better. It focuses on a few themes Obama wanted to present to the public about himself. And, as with any memoir, it is told completely from Obama’s point of view. It’s not a biography.

Next month the beginnings of an Obama biography will be published, by former Washington Post reporter David Maraniss. Readers wanting to learn about Obama’s entire life will be disappointed to discover that Maraniss stops when Obama is age 27, as he finishes work as a community organizer in Chicago and heads to Harvard Law School. Obama’s law school years, his practice of law in Chicago, his campaigns and career as an Illinois state senator, U.S. senator, presidential candidate — none of that will be covered.

Still, an excerpt of the Maraniss book published last week in Vanity Fair reveals a portrait of Obama that might have enriched the voters’ understanding of him in the 2008 campaign, when many Americans were eager to learn about this new, fresh face in politics.

The excerpt focuses on Obama’s brief time in New York after his graduation from Columbia University. The son of a Kenyan father and an American expatriate mother, Obama emerges as a man questioning whether he viewed himself, or wanted to be viewed by others, as an American. Not in a citizenship sense — Obama was born in the United States and that was that — but in the sense of how he saw the world and wanted to be seen by it.

Obama had a lot of Pakistani friends; Maraniss writes that if Obama and his girlfriend socialized as a couple, “it was almost always with the Pakistanis.” Obama appeared to identify with his friends as fellow non-Americans. “For years when Barack was around them, he seemed to share their attitudes as sophisticated outsiders who looked at politics from an international perspective,” Maraniss writes. “He was one of them, in that sense.”

But Obama was ambitious. Appalled by the “dirty deeds” of “Reagan and his minions” (as he wrote in “Dreams from My Father”), Obama became increasingly interested in, as Maraniss writes, “gaining power in order to change things.” He couldn’t do that as an international guy hanging around with his Pakistani friends; he needed to become an American.

So he did. One of those Pakistani friends, Beenu Mahmood, saw a major change in Obama. Mahmood calls Obama “the most deliberate person I ever met in terms of constructing his own identity,” according to Maraniss. The time after college, Mahmood says, “was an important period for him, first the shift from not international but American, number one, and then not white, but black.”

Years later, the picture of Obama as a young adult wondering whether or not he was really an American was precisely the image that the Hillary Clinton campaign wanted to impose on the middle-aged Obama. In internal memos, top Clinton strategist Mark Penn questioned Obama’s “lack of American roots,” writing that “Obama’s roots to basic American values and culture are at best limited. I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and in his values.”

Clinton didn’t come out and say that during the campaign, but she did everything she could to present herself as the all-American candidate in the race. Her campaign didn’t play Tom Petty’s “American Girl” at all her rallies for nothing.

In the general election, the contrast between Obama and John McCain was, of course, even more stark. At the age Obama was wondering whether he was an American or not, McCain, the son and grandson of U.S. Navy admirals, was a newly-commissioned officer at Naval Air Station Pensacola, headed for a noteworthy military career. It seems unlikely McCain spent much time musing on whether he was an American.

In the end, as the Maraniss excerpt has it, Obama chose to become an American in part because that’s what he needed to be to accomplish his goals. The story of what he did after that momentous decision will, unfortunately, have to wait for another biography.

We already knew that Barack Obama was never a true American long ago:

“To avoid being mistaken for a white sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism, and patriarchy.” –Barack Obama, Dreams From My Father

None of those groups are “American” in the sense that the overwhelming majority of the American people would ever affirm or certainly would ever embrace.

And that’s just ONE of the many troublesome quotes Obama told us before the most radically liberal Senator became president.

Obama didn’t want to hang out with those who loved America, but only with those who hated it and felt marginalized by it.  It’s beyond terrifying – and I mean “Manchurian Candidate” terrifying – that someone who without any question whatsoever thought that way as an adult man is now the president of the United States.

Dinesh D’Souza pointed out a rather terrifying thing that the media never bothered to examine emerging from Obama’s title – “Dreams FROM My Father”:

What then is Obama’s dream? We don’t have to speculate because the President tells us himself in his autobiography, Dreams from My Father. According to Obama, his dream is his father’s dream. Notice that his title is not Dreams of My Father but rather Dreams from My Father. Obama isn’t writing about his father’s dreams; he is writing about the dreams he received from his father.

So who was Barack Obama Sr.? He was a Luo tribesman who grew up in Kenya and studied at Harvard. He was a polygamist who had, over the course of his lifetime, four wives and eight children. One of his sons, Mark Obama, has accused him of abuse and wife-beating. He was also a regular drunk driver who got into numerous accidents, killing a man in one and causing his own legs to be amputated due to injury in another. In 1982 he got drunk at a bar in Nairobi and drove into a tree, killing himself.

An odd choice, certainly, as an inspirational hero. But to his son, the elder Obama represented a great and noble cause, the cause of anticolonialism. Obama Sr. grew up during Africa’s struggle to be free of European rule, and he was one of the early generation of Africans chosen to study in America and then to shape his country’s future.

I know a great deal about anticolonialism, because I am a native of Mumbai, India. I am part of the first Indian generation to be born after my country’s independence from the British. Anticolonialism was the rallying cry of Third World politics for much of the second half of the 20th century. To most Americans, however, anticolonialism is an unfamiliar idea, so let me explain it.

Anticolonialism is the doctrine that rich countries of the West got rich by invading, occupying and looting poor countries of Asia, Africa and South America. As one of Obama’s acknowledged intellectual influences, Frantz Fanon, wrote in The Wretched of the Earth, “The well-being and progress of Europe have been built up with the sweat and the dead bodies of Negroes, Arabs, Indians and the yellow races.”

D’Souza clearly didn’t want to “go there,” but Barack (actually Barak) Hussein Obama, Sr., was also a self-acknowledged and commited communist.  Obama received his dreams from a committed Marxist ideologue.

Dreams FROM my communist, America-hating father.

What the mainstream media did with its abject refusal to examine Barack Obama’s background is absolutely STUNNING.  The same media that literally flew thousands of miles to dig through Sarah Palin’s trash cans didn’t bother to look into Obama’s background in any way, shape or form unless it was exclusively complimentary of him.  The American people were not allowed to know anything about Obama beyond what he wanted the American people to know about him.  And it turns out that he fabricated a great deal of that past that the media swallowed hook, line and sinker with “composite characters, etc.

We’re told that Obama always said he’d created “composite characters,” etc.  But how on EARTH can the media justify not bothering to examine the REAL people and events that shaped a future president of the United States?  Because that is PRECISELY the argument they use when they dig through every detail of the lives of every Republican presidential candidate.

Do you remember the insane media not only pouring through Sarah Palin’s 24,199 emails, but actually asking the public to help them look for dirt???

Liberals are so rabidly diseased with evil and hypocrisy it is beyond unreal.  When I refer to “Democrats” as actually standing for “Demonic Bureaucrats,” I am being completely serious.

And just as Obama’s girlfriends are fake, his college records, etc. are sealed in a way that no American president’s records have EVER been sealed.  We don’t get to know ANYTHING about this guy.

Think about it this way: when Herman Cain ran for president, women suddenly crawled out of the woodwork to claim that Cain had sexually harassed them.  And of course they were represented by radical liberal and pro-Democrat shysters like Gloria Allred.  When Cain dropped out – or more accurately, when he was forced out by a media that went batpoop trying to destroy a black man who was TWICE as “black” and a billion times more American than Barack Obama – suddenly all those women just conveniently went away.  Because of course it was never about “sexual harassment”; it was completely about the Democrat Party using bogus allegations to attack a black Republican very much like the Democrat Ku Klux Klan would have done in the 1860s except without the pointed hoods.

And now it turns out that the only girlfriend Obama ever had in his entire life was fabricated.  And the same media that crawled up Herman Cain’s rectum wouldn’t bother to lift a finger to tell us about the REAL Barack Obama.

Barack Obama does not love America any more than the father from whom Obama got all of his dreams.

And anyone who doesn’t understand that fact is simply a fool.  Particularly since Obama himself has acknowledged it.

    And this is EXACTLY why John Jay in a letter to George Washington outlined the need for a more restrictive requirement for the office of the President. And that requirement was that the POTUS be a second generation American, a NATURAL born citizen, born of two American citizens. At the time, it was understood as common language what the term natural born meant and no definition was required. But common sense says that by your very nature of your birth you are a citizen and do not require the government (statute, law, etc) to make you thus. John Jay well understood the dangers of someone with no ALLIEGANCE or LOYALTY usurping the most powerful office – without the clause anyone from a foreign nation (think England) could come over, pretend to love America, achieve the Presidency, and quickly dismantle her. Fast forward to now. By Obama’s own admission his Father was never a US citizen. This AUTOMATICALLY makes him ineligible even if he were born on the steps of the White House. And so we can see what happens when someone has no allegiance or loyalties to the fundemental principles of America’s founding. They tear it down through ‘change’ in order to make it what they think it should be…and the will of We The People be damned. I will go ahead and say it for you Michael. The Beast is coming.

    You mean the John Jay who was one of the founding fathers who gave birth to this nation and served as the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court? That John Jay?

    Whaddoesheknow? Barack Obama crossed the Delaware with George Washington!!!

    Barack Obama is the most anti-American president this nation has ever seen.

    But he fits perfectly with the Democrat Party – which since the 1960s when they betrayed their own president in time of war has been the most anti-American and frankly treasonous party in the history of this nation.

    The Democrat Party is the party whose leadership fully agreed with George Bush that Saddamn Hussein was a threat who was producing WMD – until Bush was at war and they treasonously attacked him and undermined him and did everything they could to render aid and comfort to the enemy:

    http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/b/bushlied.htm
    http://www.freedomagenda.com/iraq/wmd_quotes.html
    http://www.snopes.com/politics/war/wmdquotes.asp

    SIXTY PERCENT of Senate Democrats voted for the Iraq War that the Democrats later DEMONIZED George Bush over.

    The Democrat Party is the party whose Senate Majority Leader literally surrendered to an enemy while our troops were in the field defeating that enemy:

    “I believe myself that the secretary of state, secretary of defense and – you have to make your own decisions as to what the president knows – (know) this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday,” said Reid, D-Nev.

    The Democrat Party is the party whose Majority Whip said that good news on the battlefield for our troops was BAD news for the Democrat Party:

    House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said Monday that a strongly positive report on progress on Iraq by Army Gen. David Petraeus likely would split Democrats in the House and impede his party’s efforts to press for a timetable to end the war. […]

    “I think there would be enough support in that group to want to stay the course and if the Republicans were to stay united as they have been, then it would be a problem for us,” Clyburn said.

    Just to make sure you can understand how truly vile, how truly despicable, how truly contemptible, Democrats are: the same party that was FOR the war in their public comments and in the votes of their own SENATORS, then AGAINST the war just because it was a treasonous cheap-shot opportunity to undermine a president during time of war, suddenly were FOR the war again after Bush won it against their every effort to prevent him from winning because Obama was now president:

    Vice President Joe Biden said “I am very optimistic about — about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration.”

    We haven’t won a major war since Democrats turned traitor during the Vietnam War and undermined their own President LBJ. We will never be able to win a war again until we line these traitors up against walls and shoot them. That’s what the WWII generation would have done to these vermin, regardless of their party. Let me assure you that the Democrats who helped fight WWII would have slapped the faces of the Democrats who threw hissy fits and refused to serve their country during Vietnam. The Democrats of WWII would have burned traitor Jane Fonda alive for going to North Vietnam and spitting in the faces of American POWs.

    And the Democrat Party has been a treasonous disgrace to America ever since. The voted for a man who not only refused to serve in the military but actually wrote that he “loathed the military” for president. Bill Clinton wrote in dodging the draft that his betters from a better generation of Democrats never would have dodged:

    I am writing too in the hope that my telling this one story will help you understand more clearly how so many fine people have come to find themselves still loving their country but loathing the military, to which you and other good men have devoted years, lifetimes, of the best service you could give. To many of us, it is no longer clear what is service and what is disservice, or, if it is clear, the conclusion is likely to be illegal.

    Too bad President “I never inhaled” didn’t loathe blow jobs from young interns who had been sent by parents who had contributed money to his campaign as much as he loathed the military.

    The Democrat Party is the party that murdered fifty-four million American citizens in their American mothers’ wombs while demanding that illegal votes from non-citizens and convicted criminals and dead people and Mickey Mouse have their votes counted. More evidence of the latter just came out, btw.

    I think that a president who literally refused to consider himself an “American” until it occurred to him that by “becoming” an “American” he could “fundamentally transform” the thing he despised in fact perfectly fits the Democrat Party today.

    The Democrat Party has degenerated into such a treasonous entity that even BRIEF exposure to the American flag makes people Republican:

    Just a brief exposure to an image of the American flag shifts voters, even Democrats, to Republican beliefs, attitudes and voting behavior even though most don’t believe it will impact their politics, according to a new two-year study just published in the scholarly Psychological Science.

    What’s more, according to three authors from the University Chicago, Cornell University and Hebrew University, the impact had staying power.

    “A single exposure to an American flag resulted in a significant increase in participants’ Republican voting intentions, voting behavior, political beliefs, and implicit and explicit attitudes, with some effects lasting 8 months,” the study found. “These results constitute the first evidence that nonconscious priming effects from exposure to a national flag can bias the citizenry toward one political party and can have considerable durability.”

    The modern Democrat Party is such a treasonous entity that just attending an Independence Day event makes one a Republican:

    Democratic political candidates can skip this weekend’s July 4th parades. A new Harvard University study finds that July 4th parades energize only Republicans, turn kids into Republicans, and help to boost the GOP turnout of adults on Election Day.

    “Fourth of July celebrations in the United States shape the nation’s political landscape by forming beliefs and increasing participation, primarily in favor of the Republican Party,” said the report from Harvard. [See political cartoons about the 2012 GOP field.]

    “The political right has been more successful in appropriating American patriotism and its symbols during the 20th century. Survey evidence also confirms that Republicans consider themselves more patriotic than Democrats. According to this interpretation, there is a political congruence between the patriotism promoted on Fourth of July and the values associated with the Republican party. Fourth of July celebrations in Republican dominated counties may thus be more politically biased events that socialize children into Republicans,” write Harvard Kennedy School Assistant Professor David Yanagizawa-Drott and Bocconi University Assistant Professor Andreas Madestam. [Enjoy political cartoons about President Obama.]

    Their findings also suggest that Democrats gain nothing from July 4th parades, likely a shocking result for all the Democratic politicians who march in them. [Check out editorial cartoons about the Democrats.]

    “There is no evidence of an increased likelihood of identifying as a Democrat, indicating that Fourth of July shifts preferences to the right rather than increasing political polarization,” the two wrote.

    Barack Obama is EXACTLY the right guy for the official Party of Treason in America – the Democrat Party (the same Party that seceded from the Union while trying to enslave black people; the same Party that gave America the first terrorist organization – the Ku Klux Klan – to attack black people and their white Republican opponents.

    John Jay looked ahead into history and saw that one day there would be people who were so depraved and so dishonest and so vile that they would do the above.
