Coming this summer: ‘The Roots of Obama’s Rage — the Movie’

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.

    The something for nothing crowd and other assorted Free Loaders don’t care as long as Obama pays them off with Free stuff that he forces from decent hardworking tax slobs like you and me.
    The tide has turned, America will fall and there’s not a damn thing anyone can do about it!
    Stock up on guns and ammo. When the gravy train ends, and it will, it will be 100 times worse than Greece and it will be every man for himself!

  2. Speak for yoursself, Bruce. You may be a hardworking tax slob. I’m an unemployed blog-writing bum. Paid plenty of taxes last year, though. So can I be an honorary member?

    I think Mr. Feher is a little far out with his comment, especially his advice to “Stock up on guns and ammo:”, if he has such a stock pile or intends one, legal or not, whatever his intent, every level of law enforcement knows of it and could neutralize him within hours if he decides to go Rambo. Mr. Mitchell’s article was not a call to arms, it’s a critique of a book meant to educate citizens on the bizarre ideology of our president and those that adore him, whether that adoration is his imagined celebrity or pure political expediency. The latter, of course, is the reason for our very own Harry Reid’s slavish devotion to the president; who among us ever wondered or considered that Harry’s Democrat Party interest exceeded his party’s basic liberal tendencies, and tended towards the socialism and communism that Obama and his backers extol? Did anyone wonder how a seasoned pol like Harry Reid came under the spell of a novice pol, one that came out of nowhere to gain the highest office in the land. Idolatry doesn’t explain it, power and pelf doesn’t even explain it, it’s more akin to the strange light and bearing that comes over a person when touched deeply by the spirit of religion. I find it impossible to understand how Harry Reid gained enough votes from his fellow senators to be leader of that up to now distinquished body, they are largely seasoned and experienced individuals; did they want such a vindictive and desperate character as their chief spokesman to simply make them look better, i.e., more dignified, more somber in their machinations of the political process. We ask who Obama is, we should have asked who Harry Reid was a long time ago.

    Sorry, misspelled distinguished

  5. Exhibit 1: This rambling, bumbling speech in an empty Senate chambers.

    Watching a millionaire wax nostalgic about his youth in poverty does not impress.

    Truly insane to think of President Obama — of all people — as “enraged”!!

    “Enraged”. Incredible.

  7. Read the book, Petey. Or least watch the movie.


  8. nyp10025 says:

    Yeah – President Obama’s worldview was stamped upon him by the father whom he me exactly one time in the course of his life.
    That’s why this incredibly sober-minded, cerebral President is “enraged.”

    Just insane stuff.

  9. He was obsessed by a father he did not know. From “Dreams from My Father”:

    “It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa, that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself. … My father’s voice had nevertheless remained untainted, inspiring, rebuking, granting or withholding approval. You do not work hard enough, Barry. You must help in your people’s struggle. Wake up, black man! … “When my tears were finally spent, I felt a calmness wash over me. I felt the circle finally close. I realized that who I was, what I cared about, was no longer just a matter of intellect or obligation, no longer a construct of words. I saw that my life in America–the black life, the white life, the sense of abandonment I’d felt as a boy, the frustration and hope I’d witnessed in Chicago–all of it was connected with this small piece of earth an ocean away, connected by more than the accident of a name or the color of my skin. The pain that I felt was my father’s pain…. “I sat at my father’s grave and spoke to him through Africa’s red soil.”

    There is more to this too. Bill Whittle.

    13 minutes, well worth the time.
    Wish he would do part 2.

  11. nyp10025 says:

    Imagine that. A fatherless boy tearfully imagining his absent father telling him to work hard and be proud of his ethnic heritage.

    This is all at once both insane and very mean.

    I don’t know, petey. Kind’a brings a tear to your eye, doesn’t it?
