On Monday and Tuesday’s episodes of ‘The Glenn Beck Show’ on the Fox News Channel, Beck has been busy connecting the dots between the ’10-2-10 Rally’, hosted by ‘One Nation Working Together’ and a whole bunch of left-leaning groups. They range from labor unions like SEIU and the AFL-CIO, to both of Van Jones groups Color for Change and Green For All, to the even more radical Communist Party USA and the Gray Panthers. Today Glenn had a special guest, Dinesh D’Souza, author of ‘The Roots of Obama’s Rage’, to assist in why Obama’s associations with so many of the organizations sponsoring the One Nation 10-2-10 rally this Saturday is really bad.
When one begins to unravel the life of Barack Hussein Obama, the best place to start is with his own autobiography, ‘Dreams From My Father’. First, one needs to consider the title. It’s not ‘Dreams OF My Father’, which would imply some reminiscent thoughts Obama had of his father. In his autobiography, Obama writes how when visiting his father’s grave site in Kenya, he decided to take his father’s dreams and make them his own. Obama writes “I sat at my father’s grave and spoke to him through Africa’s red soil.”
But even more telling is the story on Pages 313 through 315, where Obama describes going to a hotel restaurant with his cousin, Auma. The two black Kenyan waiters ignored them, which caused Auma to scold the waiters. In Obama’s mind, he begins to connect his own dots. To Obama, the black waiters still have not realized that they are independent from the white colonial system that educated them and built the hotel, the streets, the infrastructure. They are still serving the interests of neocolonialism.
Obama’s father was a Marxist. Dinesh points to a paper written by the elder Obama, conveniently left out of junior’s autobiography. Published in 1965 in the East Africa Journal, and entitled ‘Problems Facing Our Socialism’, Obama Sr. spewed forth a wave of anti-colonial rhetoric. Even though Kenya had become independent, Obama Sr. still saw the effects. “Is it the African who owns this country? If he does, then why should he not control the economic means of growth in this country?”
Neocolonialism is defined as a term to describe a post-colonial relationship between the former colonial power and the former colony. A ‘national’ economic relationship is now an ‘international’ one. With the rise of globe-stretching corporations, neocolonialism is directly related to the multinational companies which seek to control resources worldwide. Instead of sending soldiers armed with rifles, they send accountants armed with balance sheets.
Obama Jr. adopted his father’s dream, which he adopted from his father. Our president’s grandfather was a rebel in Kenya, who actively fought against British rule. The harsh treatment when captured could explain why President Obama has done a number of actions, such as returning a bust of Winston Churchill to the British government, show a general disdain for England. Perhaps even the disdain Obama has for America, as he went on his global apology tour.
All through Obama’s life, he has had to contend with his own struggle for identity. Being biracial is one thing. But adding to that Obama’s inner conflicts between the Socialism his father and mother adhered to, and the Capitalism that surrounded him. Even in Indonesia, while living with his step-father, Lolo Soetoro, it was a relevant issue, as his mother and Lolo argued with her accusing Lolo of being a ‘sell-out’ for taking a good paying job with an oil company. She sent her son back to Hawaii to remove young Barack from Lolo’s bourgeoisie influence.
Tomorrow, Glenn Beck will have Dinesh D’Souza on again, to continue connecting the dots between Barack Obama ‘the man’ and ‘his policies’. Why Obama’s close association with the groups sponsoring the One Nation Working Together 10-2-10 rally this Saturday is important to understanding why Obama is executing his agenda. America is growing weaker economically, militarily and spiritual by design. Obama is striking a blow for his father and grandfather against Colonialism.
