Skip to comments.Yes, Obama Eating Dogmeat Matters

"And away from the dinner table I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher) and roasted grasshopper (crunchy)...."---Bark Hussein Obama, writing in Dreams From My Father
Yes, it matters. Yes, it matters a great deal.
This little quote speaks volumes. It shows just how foreign Obama truly is. It shows how foreign his upbringing was. Not only that, it also shows how much the Arrogant and Lazy Mainstream Media sucks at its job.
Now, before we get started, yes, I know that former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers may have ghost written Chairman Obama's books. However, that changes nothing. Even if Ayers ghost wrote the above quote, that doesn't mean it wasn't proofread by the future American dictator, nor does it mean that Ayers wasn't given first hand accounts about Bark's life, this incident included.
Back to the matter at hand.
This quote, among thousands admittedly far more important, illustrates just how foreign Obama's upbringing truly was and how truly foreign his thought processes are. For thousands of years, dogs have been domesticated by humans living in western civilization. Dogs (along with cats) are universally accepted as pets, but not as food. Many western cultures have outlawed the eating of dogs and cats for that purpose. It's a social more. Most folks find eating dogmeat almost as repugnant as polygamy and incest. It simply isn't done by normal people with a normal upbringing.
But yet, in the above quote, Obama is treating it as if it was no big deal, like eating duck pate or escargot. That coudn't be further from the truth. It's barbaric. To a lot folks in western civilization, especially those who consider their pets part of the family like I do, this is almost like admitting that one ate Aunt Gladys for dinner. The very fact that this was included in his autobiography, when there was no real reason to do so, shows just how out of touch Bark Obama truly is with American culture.
The worst thing about it is the fact that the Arrogant and Lazy Mainstream Media isn't making more of this. I know they're doing their doggone best to make sure their Fuhrer gets another term to finish off America, but hey, just once, can't they pretend to be Americans who have a vested interest in American culture ? More importantly, as Mark Levin brilliantly asked, why isn't the Arrogant and Lazy Mainstream Media asking when Bark Obama stopped eating the flesh of Man's Best Friend ?
Yes, I know I should be writing about Bark Obama's countless scandals, ranging from arming Mexican drug cartels with Operation Fast and Furious to aiding the Muslim Brotherhood take control of Libya. I get it. In the grand scheme of things, this is nowhere near as important as those crimes against humanity. However, we can't lose sight of things like this. After all, snippets like this from Bark Obama's childhood explain why he's the [fill in your favorite curse word here] he is today. What's more important, it's a barometer of what kind of [fill in your favorite curse word here] he'll be if he gets another four years without having to worry about be reelected.
We are on the edge of complete economic, political, and social disaster. I can't gussy it up. I can't make it sound palatable. The truth is what the truth is.
Thanks for the ping. I wonder if it’s even true, as dogmeat is not eaten by Moslems. I’m wondering if it was added for shock value and to further “stick it” to Americans.
It’s not that I hold his early age practices, but as we all know, early age memories help mold who we are as people. Obama did not grow up in a childhood that valued western Judeo-Christian values. That’s a serious problem.
Couldn’t agree more.
The villages themselves were surrounded by high stockades.
In the Fall, at the end of the corn harvesting season the people would allow the wild deer to come into the fields and eat the remaining corn and the stalks.
That would go on a while and the deer would get fat and harvestable. Then they'd turn the village dogs lose on the deer, and the dogs would gorge themselves on fresh venison night and day for as long as the deer lasted.
In the winter months when everbody starved and there was nothing to eat the American people ate fresh dog meat.
That's the American way.
Who told you that was foreign?
In any religion, even the so called “Religion of Peace”, there is always a division between doctrine and the laity. (Although it is rather rare in murderous Islam.)
I’m pretty angry about this one.
I’m sorry. Eating dogmeat is foreign to modern Western culture. I’m standing by what I said.
Squirrels aren’t safe if I’m around either.
When migrants come into someone else's country and bring their own customs and beliefs that does not mean they are necessarily legitimately "original".
I've noticed we have lots of migrants here who don't eat crawdads either. In my book you don't eat crawdads you should go back home eh!
Speaking of dogs...
Nancy Pelosi called Harry Reid into her office one day and said,
“Harry, I have a plan to win back Middle America in 2012!”
“Great Nancy , but how?” asked Harry.
“We’ll get some cheesy clothes and shoes, like most Middle Class Americans wear, then stop at the pound and pick up a Labrador retriever. Then, we’ll go to a nice old country bar in Montana and show them how much admiration and respect we have for the hard working people living there.”
So they did, and found just the place they were looking for in Bozeman , Montana. With the dog in tow, they walked inside and stepped up to the bar.
The Bartender took a step back and said, “Hey! Aren’t you Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi?”
“Yes we are!” said Nancy, “And what a lovely town you have here. We were passing through and Harry suggested we stop and take in some local color.”
They ordered a round of bourbon for the whole bar, and started chatting up a storm with anyone who would listen.
A few minutes later, a grizzled old rancher came in, walked up to the Labrador , lifted up its tail, looked underneath, shrugged his shoulders and walked out. A few moments later, in came another old rancher. He walked up to the dog, lifted up its tail, looked underneath, scratched his head and left the bar.
For the next hour, another dozen ranchers came in, lifted the dog’s tail, and left shaking their heads.
Finally, Nancy asked, “Why did all those old ranchers come in and look under the dog’s tail? Is it some sort of custom?”
“Lord no,” said the bartender. “Someone’s out there running around town, claiming there’s a Labrador Retriever in here with two assholes!”
If you read my post carefully, that is exactly what I said. He’s not responsible for his early upbringing. That upbringing will have lasting consequences. However, as a grownup, no matter what the upbringing, he’s still responsible for everything he does, and his upbringing would make him not one of us.
How old was your kiddo? Obama’s dog tasting days were in the ballpark of six to ten years old from what I have read online. When I was about that age, I refused to eat venison and rabbit.
However, I don’t blame Obama for eating dog as a kid. What does surprise me, however, is the way he seems to embrace the experience and uses it to burnish that exotic chic image his followers find so attractive. I wish the media would have at least asked him about that episode when the first family acquired Bo, even if it was only to ask “Given your unusual dietary habits as a child, do you think that maybe cat ownership might be a better fit for you and your family.”
Bush made me do it.
I hear ya.
Yeah, but squirrel is a traditional staple of our patriotic ancestors. In the USA, eating dog has always been about on par with cannibalism. If you’ve eaten dog, and brush it off as normal or merely odd, you’re not one of US.
I think we’re in agreement.
Hey gang, we’re famous!
Our forebears were certainly as legitimately American as any of the riffraff belched out by Europe.
I spent some time with a friend’s chihuahua last week, and I have to say, it did have some tasty looking little drumstick legs.
Run, Snoopy, ruuunnnn!!
****Im sorry. Eating dogmeat is foreign to modern Western culture. Im standing by what I said.****
On their trip of discovery, Lewis and Clark fed their men on dog meat. They even found it better than horse meat.
This refusal to eat dogs is indeed a modern phenomenon. In an earlier time Americans thought of them as little walking “refrigerators” who could always be depended on for a good meal.
A cottage industry of these pics has sprung up. Before long we’ll see t-shirts, dog bowls, mugs, and all kinds of stuff.
Isn’t capitalism great ?
That was then and this is now.
We simply don’t do that anymore in western civilization.
There are those who worship the dog-god.
What do you call the Obamas with two dogs?
Curious. What made you refuse to eat venison and rabbit? I can understand the aversion to rabbit if you also kept them as pets. Ive eaten venison, rabbit, bear, rattle snake, goat, pickled pigs feet and gator and of course being from Maryland, a lot of raw oysters. I dont think Id eat dog or horse unless I had to in an emergency situation. OTHO, if I were visiting a foreign country where dog was eaten, I cant say for sure that I wouldnt try it.
Interestingly in many of those parts of the world where dog is eaten, dogs are also kept as pets. They would never think to fry up their pet Fido but raise dogs as food much like we do cows or pigs. Some folks keep pot bellied pigs as pets but I suspect a number of them also eat pork.
To be honest, there are hundreds of reasons why I loathe Obama and his ilk and want him out of a job come November, but his culinary adventures as a kid are not particularly high on my list.
You go around eating canned tamales you gotta' be an American!
You hit it right on the head, FRiend!
True, but we can’t lose sight of the fact that is another clue of exactly how foreign Obama’s upbringing is. This is not like Sarah Palin’s moose chili.
Maybe I’m small minded, but I prefer having an American president who was raised with Judeo-Christian values. I don’t want some bizarro childhood influencing the Leader of the Free World.
Chicken Poodle Soup, German Shepherd Pie, and for dessert, Baked A Lassie (all from Twitter) - a meal even Michelle would approve of.......
