Skip to comments.D'Souza Can't Quite Accept the Real Obama
Posted on 10/02/2012 9:22:04 AM PDT by Smokeyblue
In 2016: Obama's America, the most successful and artful conservative documentary to date, author and producer Dinesh D'Souza takes a step closer to exposing the real Barack Obama. To get there, however, he will have to remove the obstacles he has set in his own way.
"Obama came out of nowhere," says D'Souza at the film's beginning. "No one really knew him." The reason why no one knew him was simple enough. Obama discouraged the media from looking. The major media obliged, and their conservative counterparts in New York and Washington, fearing ridicule, honored this absurd gentleman's agreement.
D'Souza was one such gentleman. A Dartmouth grad, he shows up regularly on TV talk shows and serves now as president of King's College in New York City. As such, he cannot afford to stray too far from approved paths. In 2016, D'Souza takes a calculated step off that path, and for that I commend him and recommend the film.
"There a lot of mysterious black holes around Obama," D'Souza told Denver radio host Peter Boyles last week.
Although the film is a serious improvement over the book on which it is based, The Roots of Obama's Rage, D'Souza stubbornly refuses to explore some of those holes.
In the book, D'Souza argued that that Barack Obama, Sr. was "first and foremost" an anti-colonialist and that his son was, too. Both assertions are arguably true. What is not true, but what was absolutely essential to D'Souza's thesis, is that Obama inherited the philosophy and its attendant rage from his absent father. The movie, happily, gives us a broader look at Obama's formation, including an expanded role for his grandfather; his mother, Ann Dunham; and his communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis.

Has anyone compared 0bama’s DNA to his alleged brother? I don’t think they’re related and that’s why 0bama hasn’t assisted him in any way. 0bama knows his father is Frank Marshall Davis (or Malcolm X).
Disregard this article of nonsense - D’Souza nailed it in 2016. The once seemingly inexplicable actions of the President can all be reconciled with the anti-colonialism theory. He doesn’t act in Americas’s interest because he’s trying to wreck it. From kicking Churchill from the oval office to Israel to debt and energy - seemingly careening, unpatriotic positions on all of them all make much sense actually.
"When Boyles called Obama's claim of being abandoned by his father at age two "a provable lie," D'Souza snapped back, "That is not a provable lie." He then volunteered the novel theory that Ann moved back to Hawaii after the first quarter at the University of Washington in fall 1961 and quite possibly saw Obama Sr. off to Harvard in June 1962."
And D'Souza (and others in conservative media) won't touch the forged birth certificate, SSN#, Selective Service form.
He's missing a lot putting on the blinders.
"But that was not enough. We made sure that none of the colonial peoples would separate us from the camp of white imperialism by announcing support to the French Masters in their effort to stamp out the Vietnamese independence movement. This of course is in line with our financial aid to the Dutch imperialists in the same part of the world. We seem unflinchingly committed to support of the masters and to helping kick in the teeth the exploited. No matter how corrupt and mercenary and cruel a government may be, let its spokesmen say they are against Communism and pocket book flies open."
"Is it out purpose to save Asia from Communism , or is it to preserve the rule of the imperialists and their puppets who are hated by the masses?"
HONOLULU RECORD, MARCH 8, 1951:
"Those who believe the world is divided strictly along the hard line of Communism and anti-Communism are engaging in both dangerous and wishful thinking. The vast majority of the world is not interested in Communism as such, but in ending what is widely known as "white imperialism."
"You will notice that the Western European Nations and our own country, together with South Africa and Australia, are the backbone of the anti-Communist front. You will note also that these are the nations accused of white imperialism, white supremacy or colonialism."
Jack Cashill wrote his own book Deconstructing Obama and he has studied Obama for years. So he knows stuff that Dinesh has not even thought about.
I guess you can call the article a case of squabbling over the details and theories.
Your post nailed it. Thanks.
Deconstructing Obama: The Life, Loves, and Letters of America’s First Postmodern President by Jack Cashill
Release Date: February 15, 2011
Did Obama write his own books and is the story they tell true?
I’ve written two books, Barack Obama told a crowd of teachers in July of 2008. I actually wrote them myself. The teachers exploded in laughter. They got the joke: lesser politicians were not bright enough to do the same. During the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama supporters pointed to the first of those two books, the 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father, as proof of Obamas superior intellect. Time magazine called Dreams the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician. The Obama campaign machine traded on the candidates literary reputation, encouraging volunteers to get out the vote and keep talking to others about the genius of Barack Obama.
There was just one small flaw, as writer and literary detective Jack Cashill discovered months before the November 2008 election: nothing in Obamas history suggested he was capable of writing either Dreams or his 2006 book, The Audacity of Hope. In fact, as Cashill continued his research, he came to the shocking conclusion that the real craftsman behind Dreams was terrorist emeritus Bill Ayers.
This was a charge, David Remnick admits in his definitive Obama biography, The Bridge, that if ever proved true, or believed to be true among enough voters, could have been the end of the candidacy.
Deconstructing Obama tells the story of what happens when a citizen journalist discovers a game-changing reality that the media refuse to acknowledge. Despite their rejection, Cashill expanded his research into Obamas literary canon. As he came to see, if Dreams serves as sacred text, the poem Pop is the Rosetta stone, the key to deciphering Obamas shrouded past, his fragile psyche, and his uniquely cryptic political life. In unlocking that past, Cashill discovered that the story that Obama has been telling all his life varies from the true story in ways big and small. In fact, much of Obamas life story appears to be a wholly constructed fabrication, one that Jack Cashill deconstructs to show the world just who Barack Obama really is.
Review at Amazon:
This is an extraordinary book that in its devastating effectiveness stands above the many conservative books rushing into circulation. Cashill’s clarity of thought exhibited in his many contributions to AmericanThinker.com stands out even in excellent company. In looking forward to this book I fully expected first rate analysis pursued with rigorous intellectual honesty. I was not disappointed in that regard. What I did not expect was that Cashill would learn a great deal about the art of the first person narrative from his study of Ayers such that he would produce a compelling story in its own right. The story is of Cashill’s journey of discovery in the deconstruction of the life narrative upon which Obama’s political career has been built. It draws elegantly on Cashill’s own life experience as well as the history of those who influenced Obama. The sleuthing work of many who were drawn to the unfolding story in Cashill’s articles makes the story all that much richer.
The evidence that Bill Ayers wrote the Obama biography is overwhelming. There are many provable falsehoods in the narrative, prominent among them that Ann Dunham and Obama Sr lived together as a family with baby Barry. The cumulative effect of the many provable falsehoods leads to an overwhelming impression of Obama as a calculating phony. Though he is nowhere near the intellectual that he is made out to be, neither is he the Manchurian candidate that others have suggested. He has cynically exploited the system and many people in his climb. The press has suffered from an unusually aggressive narrative bias in enforcing a willful ignorance to all things not adhering to the Obama party line. This web of lies will come undone. Any Obamabot that reads this book with an open mind will come away with unbearable cognitive dissonance.
Cashill does not avoid the “birther” issue. Although the birther theories circulating on the internet have been some somewhat off the wall at times, Cashill makes clear that there is every reason to question Obama’s carefully hidden background. A Kenyan birth is quite unlikely. Obama Sr. may very well be the father of a boy born in Hawaii, but there are other legitimate suspects. There is enough evidence to strongly suggest Frank Marshall Davis as the father with even Obama himself fooled for many years by a convenient cover story. It is also more than a little likely that Obama is bisexual.
When the dust all settles on this story Cashill’s book will serve as an excellent teaching tool for any remaining university political science department that still teaches critical thinking.
I saw 2016. The brother clearly resembles Obama. His speech, his gestures and appearance.
I’d be shocked if it wasn’t his real brother.
D’Sousa’s explanation of Obama as being some type of anti-colonialist is far too complex. Obama is simply a Marxist. He was raised by Marxists, had Marxist friends, went to a Marxist church and embraced Marxist principles.

This DVD was sent to a million people free in Ohio - and was online for 2-3 days - then scrubbed. It then popped up - probably from some who got the DVD - on YouTube in dozens of excerpted clips and some full length.
Last week, there were dozens on YouTube. Today - nada. GONE. every single one.
Seems this one, with T’s crossed, I’s dotted, is the truth - the documentaltion is solid. And the scrub team went into overdrive like at no other time.
Everything falls into place. The whole story - about who the man in the WH is - and would make him a legitimate citizen of an American father. The twist is that he can’t admit it - due to who the father is and what his mother was - his whole robotic training - who his Commie handlers are - one now running the WH.
Here’s what used to be a link. (YouTube must have been forced to take it down and not allow any reference to be posted again...else others of the million that have it, would be posting excerpts. Evil walks the Land of the (former) free)
If it ever gets a few hours exposure on the net - PLEASE, someone, cache it! It leaves no doubt as to who the man is.
Then is you can ever see this DVD - prepare to be shocked - why is it that no push has been put on to scrbb @016? - It still fits the narrative of who his poppa is.
This has been scrbbed off the net - and the dozens of excerpts peole posted on YouTube have all disappeared like they newer existed -
Someone who has the DVD-s need to repost on YouTube using different titles - give it a chance for someone to get it cached
It appears that severl links to the DVD WERE cached - but even THEY are now scrubbed. Who has the powere to scrub CACHED articles from the net?
We are much further along into controlled communication than we even suspicioned?
They were smart to get 1 million DVD out there into peoples hands - hopefully, someone will find a way around this commie blocking - QUICKLY
I”d like to see a super pac ad with just the links between bumma’s momma and ‘Frank” along with the so identical photos of father and son...30 seconds would do it
The Two perspectives are not mutually exclusive. Both could be true as in the manner of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. The two perspectives are synergistic, not destructively dissonant.
D’Souza chose to pursue certain targeted ‘facts’ about Obama that support his anti-colonialism thesis. The birth narrative, SS#, etc. don’t have a thing to do with that.
Had D’Souza gone scattershot with the birth story, SS#, etc. it would have served only to make a mush of his theory. Why would he clutter his story with extraneous theories and facts?
I have a copy of it on my computer. I can upload it or burn it to a DVD.
My point is that he reacts like the rest of the conservative media. He starts out with a provable lie then gets mad when shown a fact. His theory is based on that lie. Cashill explains in the article.
Obama hates America and whites for sure. He was raised by communists, marxists, racists, and perverts.
DSouza has some useful and valuable insights but there is much more to the story and if he can't acknowledge basic facts he's got a nerve snapping at anyone.
