Obama: “Any distinction between good and bad whites held negligible meaning.”

Excerpts from Obama’s autobiography, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance are causing a stir among conservative commentators.

They include such unifying, hopeful gems like:

“I had begun to see a new map of the world, one that was frightening in its simplicity, suffocating in its implications. We were always playing on the white man’s court…by the white man’s rules.”

“Whatever he decided to do, it was his decision to make, not yours, and because of that fundamental power he held over you, because it preceded and would outlast his individual motives and inclinations, any distinction between good and bad whites held negligible meaning.”

And, on Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad: “I read the book to help me understand just what it is that makes white people so afraid. Their demons. The way ideas get twisted around. It helps me understand how people learn to hate.”

It is safe to say these words coming from the pen of a white candidate for President would end his bid and career.

It is also a fair bet that Republicans will make sure as many Americans as possible not only read, but hear these words should Obama secure the Democratic nomination — Obama recorded an audio version of his book (d’oh!). The audio will be particularly damning next to footage of his chosen spiritual adviser, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, telling his church congregation that the government invented AIDS to kill blacks, shouting “God d—m America,” and sneering “Hillary ain’t never been called a n—–r.” Couple this with Obama’s own ill-advised “typical white person” comment in reference to his grandmother, and you have a potent swift boat ad.

Questions about Obama’s patriotism already persist due to minor scandals that won’t go away: his tortured explanation as to why he refused to wear an American-flag lapel pin, footage of him standing with other politicians and being the only one whose hand wasn’t over his heart during the national anthem, and his wife’s admission that she had never been proud of America until her husband ran for President.

All of this will combine to fatally brand Obama as an anti-America, anti-White candidate in the minds of swing voters and middle America. The Democrats will be committing suicide by nominating someone whose words have long since made him unelectable.

  1. I really like reading through a post that will make people think.
    Also, many thanks for permitting me to comment!

  2. The aftermath to both the OJ Simpson trial and the Wright sermons are strikingly and frighteningly similar. It’s time America woke up and smelt the reality. For in depth analysis go to

  3. There are definitely a lot of delusional people out there.

    Private elections, in this case primaries, have no constitutional “right to vote” attached to them. This is a selection process for a nominee, not the national election (which does have said right).

    Try reading the Constitution or better yet ask a constitutional Law Professor (Obama), if you’re confused.

    Hillary has already lost.

    Pin your hopes on the general, if you “know” Obama will be defeated, but even this remains to be seen.

  4. He cannot be our President. He is the least patriotic politician I have ever seen. In fact, he’s anti-american. Notice how he is blocking any revote in Michigan and Florida. He is blocking the way our democracy works and the principles our country was built on. One vote for every one – it is our right to vote and to let our votes be counted. Hillary is going to make a comeback- she’s going to make it really close in the Popular Vote – Michigan and Florida would tip her over easily whether it was a revote or if they counted the votes as is. Give her the chance to win. If anyone is stealing the nomination, it’s Barack.
