Near the end of Dinesh D’Souza’s book, “The Roots of Obama’s Rage,” the author makes an appeal to the voters of the United States to turn from the course being pushed by the president. I suspect the movie he plans to put in theaters this summer will make a similar appeal.
After describing is own hardscrabble upbringing in India, D’Souza remarks that he can understand Obama and his being enamored of the simple life in a settled society where the rules are basic and the complex problems of modern life are unknown.
“Consequently I understand Obama, but I don’t sympathize with him,” the author writes. “In fact, his warped ideology really scares me. His vision for America may be therapeutic for his psyche, but it is a ridiculous one for America in the twenty-first century. … Obama’s dream is actually an American nightmare.”
He concludes, like any good editorial, with a call to action:
“It’s time to act. Yes, we need change, and this time the change we need is to change the man in the White House. America isn’t the rogue elephant: Obama is. … We also have to get rid of his team of sycophants and enablers. I am thinking of Harry Reid, Chris Dodd, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank: the entire liberal Democratic menagerie. Do all these enablers, or even his own private staff, know who Obama really is and what his goals are? … The sycophants and enablers are the ones who are clearing the path for this Pied Piper, and we had better get rid of the whole crew before they take us off the cliff.”
The book is worth reading. The advice is worth heeding. Looking forward to the movie.
