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.

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.

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:
- Jeremiah Wright (“God **** America”)
- Michael Pfleger (“There were a whole lot of white people crying”)
- Otis Moss, Obama’s new pastor, who thanked God for Michael Pfleger’s message as shown above
- 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.
- Al Sharpton and his National Action Network: Google on “Freddy’s Fashion Mart” (and “Tawana Brawley” and “Yankel Rosenbaum”) to learn more.
- 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.
