Why did Obama snub the French free-speech rally?

Why did Obama snub the big French free-speech rally following the Muslim terrorist attack on a satirical Paris newspaper and a kosher grocery?

Paul Sperry, writing in Investor’s Business Daily, suggests the key lies in Obama’s extreme anti-colonialism.

This was theme Dinesh D’Souza explored frequently in his 2010 book, “The Roots of Obama’s Rage.”

Both writers point out how much Obama was influenced by Frantz Fanon, a Martinique-born psychiatrist who fought for the independence of Algeria from French control and wrote about his anti-colonial beliefs.

Obama even mentions Fanon’s influence in his first autobiography.

“If Fanon were alive today,” Sperry writes, “he’d take solace in the Muslim terror siege of France. He’d also be proud of his Oval Office admirer’s boycott of the French government’s protest march.”

He points out that when Obama took office he packed a bust of Winston Churchill and shipped it back to England, which many at the time suggested was another show of anti-colonialism. Obama’s father was a harsh critical of English colonial rule over his home country of Kenya.

“What really motivates Barack Obama is an inherited rage — an often masked, but profound rage that comes from his African father; an anticolonialist rage against Western dominance, and most especially against the wealth and power of the very nation Barack Obama now leads,” D’Souza writes. “It is this rage that explains the previously inexplicable, and that gives us a startling look at what might lie ahead.”

Sperry suggests Obama’s anti-colonialist sympathies help explain his French boycott, as well as his antipathy Israel, his appeasement of Castro and his bugging out of Iraq, Afghanistan and, pretty much, the war on terror itself.

    Ha, ha. This is the funniest — and derpiest — thing I have read on the internet all day.

    What I enjoy the most is that the referenced article sticks with the hilarity about the 750 “no go zones”. Fox News has been forced to retract and apologize for that one, but you guys are standing your ground!

  2. nyp says:

    BTW, the French are having a lot of fun with you guys, as the following link demonstrates:

    There is plenty to dislike about Obama’s politics without making shit up.

  4. Steve says:

    Hey, Nyp.
    I got a kick out of this one sent to me by a friend who hails from Echirolle

  5. nyp says:

    Well, Fox apologized for & corrected the bogus story, so I’ll at least give the devil his due.

  6. Steve says:

    Yeah that IS better than anything we can expect from MSNBC!

  7. Fox corrected a commentator who said all of Birminham, England, is a no-go zone and stated there are no formally designated no-go zones.

    Jindal did not retract.

    There have been stories about so-called no-go zones across Europe for a couple of years.

  8. nyp says:

    “Fox News issued an unusual on-air apology on Saturday night for having allowed its anchors and guests to repeat the false claim that there are Muslim-only “no-go zones” in European countries like England and France that are not under the control of the state and are ruled according to Shariah law. The statement was referred to as “a correction” by the Fox Report host Julie Banderas, who said that ‘over the course of this last week, we have made some regrettable errors on air regarding the Muslim population in Europe, particularly with regard to England and France. Now this applies especially to discussions of so-called no-go zones, areas where non-Muslims allegedly are not allowed in and police supposedly won’t go,’ Ms. Banderas continued. ‘To be clear, there is no formal designation of these zones in either country and no credible information to support the assertion that there are specific areas in these countries that exclude individuals based solely on their religion.’


    However, you are correct that Bobby Jindal has refused to retract his repetition of the bogus accusation. It really says something about a politician when his standards of accuracy are lower than those of Fox News.

    BTW, is it true that the british City of Birmingham has changed its name to “Birming” in order not to offend Muslum sensitivities?

  10. Steve says:

    Nah…they actually changed the name to BirmingLAMB!

  11. OK, Petey, that is funny.

  12. Steve says:

    Now…how do we get Michael Moore to retract his bullshit statement?

    Any ideas, nyp?

  13. nyp says:

    I dunno. He is an idiot.

  14. Steve says:

    THAT is something you will find everyone here will agree with.

  15. Athos says:

    No go zones was an overreach. But it is accurate to say that certain parts of many major European cities (Birmingham being on of them) have a major concentration of Muslims that does seem to pose problems.

    What do you call it? I can’t think of a smaller immigrant population that wants to completely change the laws and customs of their new country.

    Oh wait. I just thought of Detroit and South Central LA.

    Reblogged this on Nevada State Personnel Watch.

  17. Athos says:

    Winston, where do you FIND this stuff?

  18. dave72 says:

    I consider all red states to be “no-go zones” or, more accurately, “I don’t ever want to go there” zones.

  19. Athos says:

    That’s something I never did understand. Why are Democrats labelled blue, and conservatives labelled Red? Red Diaper Baby (and red diaper doper baby) come to remind people that Communism has always been associated with the color “Red”. And communism resembles the Democrat party (much more than the Republican party!), so who’s idea was it to have Red states be conservative; and blue states be Democrat?

    In fact, I’m surprised Democrats don’t INSIST on labeling themselves Red. Does this make any sense to anyone else?

    Another disinformation strategy by our National handlers?
