Obama’s Aunt Complains of Abuse in Autobiography
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 12 May 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 05/12/2012 1:22:41 PM PDT by John Semmens

President Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango has recently published a memoir of her time in America. The book is titled Tears of Abuse. It alleges that her time in this country has been nothing but torment.

Residing in the United States illegally from 2002 until she was granted asylum by the Obama Administration in 2010, Zeituni’s book complains of the “shabby accommodations” and “meager sustenance” she was forced to suffer through while on public assistance during that period. “I had to live in public housing amidst an agglomeration of the common riffraff,” Zeituni wrote. “There was no one to prepare my meals. I was given food stamps and told I had to fetch my own food and cook my own meals. I felt humiliated.”

Obama’s aunt attributed her treatment to “America’s racist mindset. My nephew was an important figure in the government—first a state senator, later a US senator, and finally the president. Still, I was denied the status befitting someone whose family member was part of the ruling class. This wouldn’t have happened to me if I were white.”

Thus far, the book’s sales have been weak—a phenomenon Zeituni says further bolsters her case that she has “been the victim of racial discrimination from the first day I set foot in this God forsaken land.”

Some would say, correctly, that she was the abuser. She abused this system. She abused her relative’s power. Is she a citizen?

Typical racist rant. She needs to learn that there’s no such thing as a ruling class. Get off your black behind and work honey, whitey wasn’t put here to cater to you. What an a**hole.

LOL! You're complaining about your nephew ruler not making you rich enough (yet)? Fear not, your nephew hired your writer for you, and I'm sure there's a movie contract in your near future. In the meantime, the ruler's media division (aka the MSM) will do all it can to promote your book and boost your sales... which I'm sure you won't have to worry about paying taxes on.

The victim card is definitely in the genes. A socialist democrat would get mad at the police for arresting them for robbing a bank. That’s how they operate.

I’d argue that it’s a moral issue. The example that you gave.

One of my favorite pastimes is reading the comments from the folks that think a satirical story is actually true.

Keep em coming.

Yeah, your family member isn't part of the "ruling class", lady. America doesn't have a ruling class - what we have is a political class. The members of this class keep forgetting that they are public servants who serve at our pleasure and depend on the rest of us being too busy and too divided to slap them down, but that doesn't make them a "ruling class" - it just makes them corrupt and very bad at their jobs.

LOL----good stuff.

Here she is being "abused" in public housing
and in designer shades and cashmere coat,
designer silk scarf and gold jewelry.

The greedy illegal hired a high-priced lawyer to get
her "asylum" b/c she knows the SS system gives a big
neverending payout to those claiming "asylum."

How can she be "in danger" ----needing asylum---- with
a relative in the WH----and all her political connections in Kenya?

Falsification of documents ...... just a guess (/snix).

The problem with John’s stuff is that he has a knack for slanting, edging, placing... I can’t think of the word... anyhow he writes his copy in ways that are so utterly believable that it is hard to recognize as satire just by reading it.

Of course, he is assisted in that by his chosen targets. You get the feeling that “Yes, this is exactly what they WOULD say if they were being honest.”

I guess that’s why he calls it semi-satire. It’s too close to true for comfort.

He’s caught me more times than I can remember. Now, before I get outraged I always check the byline before I hit the outrage button.

Sure it's tough living in Boston public housing.
Maybe Obama can get Auntie into Kenya's public housing.

She should attribute her treatment more to her stingy president nephew, who is a millionaire and can earn millions more through speaking tours after he is ousted next January from the WH.

The very least the president could do is make sure his aunt is provided for. Oh, I forgot, he'll only do that with public funds and not his own money.

So that freeloading illegal alien MFer from the azehole of the world was humiliated to have to fetch her own meals which WE GAVE TO HER! Seems holders people have generic perpensity for enlarged gall bladders, gall is something their culture is sure not lacking.

I say her and the whole obama mess needs a good tarrin and featherin.

Awn-tie Zeituni is really ticked off at her nephew, Barack, who failed to provide her with servants, cooks, personal shoppers and a residence in keeping with her exalted self-importance. Funny how her nephew has the same viewpoint, isn't it? She's mad because he "lets" his mother-in-law and other relatives live in the White Hut with him and they have a personal chef and others who buy food for them. No wonder she feels discriminated against!

Being white, I also have to buy and cook my own food and I do not get food stamps nor a free home to live in. Of course, I was born in the United States, so I'm here legally, and have had to work my entire life to get these things. Tell ya what, awntie Zeit, go back to Kenya or wherever you belong and demand from them what you expect tax-paying Americans to provide for you. Then tell us about racism and discrimination. Maybe THAT book would be interesting!

You’ve only been here a few months, so here’s how it works -

you remember satire? well our resident satirist, John Semmens, usually plys his craft weekends and holidays.

Didn’t see the “semi-news / semi-satire” in the header?

Now you know.

Though this is “satire”, it sure is telling that it is not the least bit out of the question that she, as well as other members of the “family”, fully believe they ARE entitled. How many trips on Air Force One has Grandmama Robinson been treated to? Does SHE have to buy her own food or cook it, or make her own bed, even?

“Parts” have only been here a few months, but hey this “part” has tunnel-vision and I did not see that pesky header.

Have a very good excuse. Reading anything about nobama’s moochin kin cranks up the blood pressure, when the blood pressure comes up, peripheral vision goes away.

Thanks! And I'll be on the lookout for John's semi-humor.

If we lived in Africa, where the killer with the biggest and most machetes becomes the top of the ruling class, that whole delusional whine might make sense.

"Befitting someone whose family member was the most ruthless and corrupt" is another way to say it.

Where is the hell hole she came from? Kenya is it?
If anyone is collecting funds to ship her back to wherever, count me in.
