Racist Content in Obama’s “Dreams From My Father” (WITH PAGE NUMBERS)

It is well known that Barack Obama associates openly with prominent racists and anti-Semites. Most recently, the National “Jewish” “Democratic” Council (we use quotes because it has nothing to do with any Jews or Democrats we  know) invited Alcee Hastings, who was impeached and removed from office for perjury and corruption, to a panel discussion. Hastings denounced gun owners and hunters–”bitter” small town people who “cling to guns and religion,” to use Obama’s words, or “white trash” per Obama’s moderated Web site at barackobama.com–as racists and anti-Semites. Obama meanwhile belonged to a racist church that gave a standing ovation to Michael Pfleger’s “There were a whole lot of white people crying,” and he also endorsed the prominent racist and anti-Semite Al Sharpton and his National Action Network (see “Freddy’s Fashion Mart” for examples of Sharpton’s and NAN’s racist and anti-Semitic behavior).

We have accepted, however, the proposition that Barack Obama has never personally said anything against Jews or white people–until now. Referenced material–we emphasize “referenced,” as in page number–from “Dreams From My Father” suggests that Barack Obama has a problem with white people. Although most of us change our political views after college, Obama’s decision to belong to a racist church, and to praise and endorse racists and anti-Semites, suggests strongly that his have not.

Here are the relevant quotes, all with page numbers (as opposed to the urban legends and smears that have been circulating on the Internet).

    That was the problem with people like Joyce [a college classmate of Italian, African-American, Native American, and French ethnicity]. They talked about the richness of their multicultural heritage and it sounced real good, until you noticed that they avoided black people. …The truth was that I understood [Joyce], her and all the other black kids who felt the way she did. In their mannerisms, their speech, their mixed-up hearts, I kept recognizing pieces of myself. And that’s exactly what scared me. Their confusion made me question my own racial credentials all over again. …To avoid being mistaken for a 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.“Dreams From My Father,” pages 99-100

The following paragraph dismisses campus radicals, with whom Obama shared an affinity, as “white and tenured.” Then Obama cited his need to “show your loyalty to the Black masses.” The context shows that he was not talking about Satanic rituals, either.

    But this strategy alone couldn’t provide the distance I wanted, from Joyce or my past. After all, there were thousands of so-called campus radicals, most of them white and tenured and happily tolerated. No, it remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.
    “Dreams From My Father,” page 101 (paperback, ISBN 978-1-4000-8277-3)

Barack Obama then goes on to denounce an African-American classmate for having a white girlfriend, who presumably listened to country music like all “bitter” small town people who “cling to guns and religion,” or “white trash” for short.

    Tim was not a conscious brother. Tim wore argyle sweaters and pressed jeans and talked like Beaver Cleaver. …His white girlfriend was probably waiting for him up in his room, listening to country music.

    “Dreams From My Father,” pp. 101-102

The above material is wholly consistent with Obama’s more recent remarks about “bitter” small town people who “cling to guns and religion.” It is also consistent with his open association with racists, anti-Semites, and other bigots such as:

  1. Jeremiah Wright (“God **** America”)
  2. Michael Pfleger (“There were a whole lot of white people crying”)
  3. Otis Moss, Obama’s new pastor, who thanked God for Michael Pfleger’s message as shown above
  4. The Trinity United Church of Christ, which applauded Pfleger’s racist tirade. TUCC also published blood libels of the United States and Israel–e.g. Jeremiah Wright accused the U.S. of inventing the AIDS virus, and the church’s official newsletter carried a guest opinion piece that accused Israel of inventing an “ethnic bomb” to kill Black people and Arabs.
  5. Al Sharpton and his National Action Network: Google on “Freddy’s Fashion Mart” (and “Tawana Brawley” and “Yankel Rosenbaum”) to learn more.
  6. Louis Farrakhan; Obama admittedly never endorsed Farrakhan, but he refused to “reject” Farrakhan’s endorsement until after Hillary Clinton and Tim Russert backed him into a corner on national television.

Birds of a feather flock together, and Barry has surrounded himself with some rather dirty birds. The referenced content of his own book, “Dreams From My Father,” should allow the reader to form his or her own conclusion.

    [...] Racist Content in Obama’s “Dreams From My Father” (WITH PAGE NUMBERS) [...]

  2. Katy McCain Says:

    Let’s have the page numbers for these racist remarks:

    From ‘Dreams from my Father’, “The emotion between the races could never be pure, even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, THE OTHER RACE (WHITE) WOULD ALWAYS REMAIN JUST THAT: MENACING, ALIEN, AND APART.” Barack Hussein Obama

    From Dreams from My Father: “THAT HATE HADN’T GONE” he wrote, BLAMING “WHITE PEOPLE — some CRUEL, some IGNORANT, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives.” Barack Hussein Obama

    From ‘Dreams from My Father’, “There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs,” he wrote. “It remained necessary to prove which side you were on,to show your LOYALTY TO THE BLACK MASSES, TO STRIKE OUT and name names” Barack Hussein Obama

    From ‘Dreams from My Father’, ‘I VOWED THAT I WOULD NEVER EMULATE WHITE MEN whose fates didn’t speak to my own. IT WAS INTO MY FATHER’S IMAGE, THE BLACK MAN, SON OF AFRICA, THAT I’D PACKED ALL THE ATTRIBUTES I SOUGHT IN MYSELF, THE ATTRIBUTES OF MARTIN AND MALCOLM, DUBOIS AND MANDELA’ Barack Hussein Obama

    From The Audicity of Hope: To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.”

    From The Audicity of Hope: After graduating from college, Obama eventually went to Chicago to interview for a job as a community organizer. His racial attitudes came into play as he sized up the man who would become his boss: “There was something about him that made me wary,” Obama wrote. “A little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.”

    From The Audacity of Hope:..’the white race…“that ghostly figure that haunted black dreams.”

    From “Dreams”: (after making his first visit to Kenya, he wrote of being disappointed to learn that his paternal grandfather had been a servant to rich whites. that the revelation caused)“ugly words to flash across my mind. Uncle Tom. Collaborator. House n—–”.

    From The Audacity of Hope: “We are no longer just a Christian nation,” he argues in “Audacity,” which was published last year. “We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”

    “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.”

    From ‘Audacity’: “Her memories of the Christians who populated her youth were not fond ones,” Obama wrote. “For my mother, organized religion too often dressed up closed-mindedness in the garb of piety, cruelty and oppression in the cloak of righteousness.”

    “Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different,” Obama wrote. “His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force

    Then there is his love of Islam:

    Quote from Barack Obama’s book, Dreams Of My Father:

    “THE PERSON WHO MADE ME PROUDEST OF ALL, THOUGH, WAS MY [half brother], ROY..HE CONVERTED TO ISLAM”.

    From ‘Dreams of my Father’, “IN INDONESIA, I SPEND TWO YEARS AT A MUSLIM SCHOOL” “..I STUDIED THE KORAN..”

    From ‘Audacity of Hope: “LOLO (Obama’s step father) FOLLOWED ISLAM….”I LOOKED TO LOLO FOR GUIDANCE”.

    From ‘The Audacity Of Hope, “I WILL STAND WITH THEM (MUSLIMS) SHOULD THE POLITICAL WINDS OF WAR SHIFT IN AN UGLY DIRECTION..” .

    From The Audacity Of Hope, “WE ARE NO LONGER JUST A CHRISTIAN NATION, we are also a Jewish nation, a MUSLIM NATION, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”
