Ann Coulter: DREAMS FROM MY FATHER, LAME EXCUSES FROM MY GRANDFATHER (Grandma is a Rasist!)

DREAMS FROM MY FATHER, LAME EXCUSES FROM MY GRANDFATHER
April 9, 2008


Since a Chinese graduate student at Columbia University, Minghui Yu, was killed last Friday when black youths violently set upon him, sending him running into traffic to escape, I think B. Hussein Obama ought to start referring to the mind-set of the "typical Asian person."

As of Wednesday, police had no motive for the attack, and witnesses said they heard no demand for money or anything else. The Associated Press reports that the assailant simply said to his friend, "Watch what I do to this guy" before punching Yu.

Meanwhile, let's revisit the story about Obama's grandmother being guilty of thinking like a "typical white person." As recounted in Obama's autobiography, the only evidence that his grandmother feared black men comes from Obama's good-for-nothing, chronically unemployed white grandfather, who accuses Grandma of racism as his third excuse not to get dressed and drive her to work.

His grandmother wanted a ride to work at 6:30 in the morning because, the day before, she had been aggressively solicited by a homeless man at the bus stop. On her account, the panhandler "was very aggressive, Barry. Very aggressive. I gave him a dollar and he kept asking. If the bus hadn't come, I think he might have hit me over the head."

Even Obama's shiftless grandfather didn't play the race card until pretty far into the argument over whether he would drive Grandma to work. First, the good-for-nothing grandfather told Obama that Grandma was just trying to guilt him into driving her, saying, "(S)he just wants me to feel bad."

Next, he complained about his non-work routine being disrupted, saying: "She's been catching the bus ever since she started at the bank. ... And now, just because she gets pestered a little, she wants to change everything!"

Only after Obama had offered to drive his grandmother to work himself and it was becoming increasingly clear what a selfish lout the grandfather was, did Grandpa produce his trump card. The reason he wouldn't get his lazy butt dressed and drive Grandma to work was ... she was a racist!

As Obama recounts it, on Grandpa's third try at an excuse, he told Obama: "You know why she's so scared this time? I'll tell you why. Before you came in, she told me the fella was black. That's the real reason she's bothered. And I just don't think that's right." So I guess I'll be heading back to the sack now!

Your grandmother wasn't a racist, Barack. Your grandpa was just a loser. Can we wrap up our national conversation about race now? I think we'd like to move onto questions about your stupid plan to hold talks with Iran.

According to Obama, the fact that his grandmother was frightened by an aggressive panhandler who continued to harrangue her for money after she had already given him money and who happened to be black is “racism” by a “typical white person”. Obama classified this “racism” at the same level as Jerimiah Wright’s “divisive” comments. However, in his speech, Obama left out the “aggressive panhandling” part and said the man was “just passing on the street” when he said his grandma “made him cringe” with her “typical white person” racism.

Who are the criminals in our society? Liberals claim that our society is racist because a very high percentage of criminals in prison are black. Others say that a high percentage of blacks are in prison because a high percentage of blacks are criminals. What is the truth here? When will a fearless analyst fully address that situation?

"And now, just because she gets pestered a little, she wants to change everything!"

Coincidence? I think not!

"I knew that men who might easily have been my brothers could still inspire their rawest fears." That's true -- assuming his brothers and sisters were menacing people at bus stops.

LOL but then think about it...Obama is one really messed up guy (socialism aside). Seriously, how screwy do you have to be to make that leap?

Actually IMO, Obama went easier on Wright (black) (Reverend Wrong) than he did on his Grandmother (white.)

He mentioned he didn't agree with Wright politically, and as you mentioned, his Grandmother being frightened by an aggressive black man made Obama "cringe."

Wright makes me cringe, not B. Hussein's Grandma

There was a short blurb in the local paper today about “teenagers” attacking a Russian speaking elderly man in my city yesterday evening. There was no robbery. Of course there was no description of the assailants. I’ll bet this is another hate crime that will not get any more coverage.

I have first hand knowledge of what a mixed race young adult thinks of their white Grandmother, a neighbor has a daughter who married a black man much to her families dismay, her Father actually disowned her.

After years of helping the family who couldn’t keep a job,and who milked this poor woman for tons of money,when she finally said NO to giving more money, she than got the most vile, racist,expletive, disrespectful email from the Grandaughter I ever had the misfortune of reading.

Point being Obama and his disgusting treatment of his Grandmother who’s only crime was being white, and accusing her of being racist is utterly disgusting!

How dare he? And he is what the libs are falling all over? I can just see an Obama’s America.....(shudder)

A lib (GOD FORBID!!) would be bad enough but a racist Obama lib is a nightmare from hell!

Love this bit:

Two women who identified themselves as the suspect's aunts said the death was an accident caused by "child's play," and insisted their nephew was remorseful. "He cries night by night," one said.

Yes, I'm sure this angel is really sorry for what he did. And Al Sharpton is going to deliver a speech next week about how the degradation of the black family is creating generations of lost youths. RIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT.

Remember Pol Pot?
He and his Khmer Rouge took Mao’s urban “cleansing” very seriously.
The city dwellers of Cambodia were either slaughtered (the educated ones were first)or driven into the countryside to be slave farmers who were murdered at the slightest hint of sloth or lack of “motivation.” (”The Killing Fields”)
The mostly adolescent “Red Guard” of Chairman Mao’s “Cultural Revolution” butchered urban denizens by the millions in the 60s in an effort to “cleanse” the cities of “counterevolutionaries” suspected of Western thinking.
The peasants were the only one’s to be trusted,all others were to be killed or “re-educated.”
Mao,Hitler and Stalin murdered more people in the 20th Century than 90% of the total populations of any individual nation on earth today.
Of course,all three were ethnic variations of socialist rule at it’s zenith.
Our liberals still have a ways to go,albeit not from lack of trying.

Obama’s book should have been called

“Dreams from My Father.... About My Honky Racist Grandma”

This guy has trashed the woman who actually raised him, provided for him, saw that he received such an ‘elite’ education......who knows how much of her own preferences and enjoyments in her middle years were sacrificed to provide for this ingrate Obama...... while both of his shiftless good-for-nothing parents abandoned him. It’s his father, most of all, who should merit Obama’s resentments..... instead he creates a racist fantasy world around his wonderful missing father and trashes the grandma who actually made all of his prospects in life possible.

Can we please stop using that picture of Ann in these threads and also everywhere? It's just a really bad shot of her (not an easy thing to do). There are much much better pictures of her out there with which to fulfill the rules. Speaking of rules...


(We need more TV caps of Ann. I took this one myself off a website.)

On topic, Ann proves once again that not only does she have a steel spine and a ton of wit, but she's also the best researcher out there. Period. I'm always impressed by how much I learn from her columns that I see nowhere else.

While studying here, my father met my mother. She was born in a town on the other side of the world, in Kansas.

Your grandmother wasn't a racist, Barack. Your grandpa was just a loser.

Quote: While studying here, my father met my mother. She was born in a town on the other side of the world, in Kansas

Her father worked on oil rigs and farms through most of the Depression. The day after Pearl Harbor my grandfather signed up for duty, joined Patton's army and marched across Europe. Back home, my grandmother raised their baby and went to work on a bomber assembly line. After the war, they studied on the GI Bill, bought a house through FHA, and moved west, all the way to Hawaii, in search of opportunity

--Barack Obama, 28 July, 2004.

I suspect most of us have more in common with Barack's grandparents than with him or his wife.

Who verifies that Barack Hussein Obama Junior's retelling of this tale is authentic? Who besides Barack Hussein Obama Junior heard this conversation? Given Barack Hussein Obama Junior's proclivity to falsify his history in order to play the "race" card, I respectfully suggest that Barack Hussein Obama Junior is not presenting the facts truthfully any more than Hillary Rodham Clinton has been truthful recently regarding the pregnant woman and the gunfire.

There are too many unanswered questions and I think the Media should go to Hawaii and, without Senator Obama, Jr. or any one connected to him present, ask this sweet grandmother who paid for Barry to attend private school in Hawaii and helped him in every way she could, what the TRUTH is.

Does this look Barack Hussein Obama Junior's grandmother is a racist??? Barack Obama's White Grandparents

We do not have "a" race card.

We have a whole deck of them, thanks to Obama's authorship.

Obama is a slick idiot and a racist, and the whole issue will not go away. It will defeat him in fly over country if he is nominated. No presidency Obama, do not pass go, do not collect $200.00. Go to Kenya.

And who is really a card? Anne Coulter. She plays poker with the best of them in this game.

For those keeping score, Obama is aghast at his grandmother's alleged racism, but had no problem with Jeremiah Wright's manifest racism.

Bullseye!

If Obama is sent reeling by the mere words of an elderly white woman, how is he going to negotiate with a guy like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? What if Ahmadinejad calls him "booger-face"? Will he run crying from the table?

Hillary Clinton is a full-blown irreversable commie who is incapable of speaking the truth (maybe that's being redundant).

B Hussein Obama is a racist socialist.

Neither of the two has even a shred of character nor a sense of an individual identity. Both are saddled with spouses who are problematic in and of themselves.

Quite a pickle the Dems have gotten themselves into.

Not many will vote for McCain, but many will vote against either Hillary Clinton or B Hussein Obama.

Criminals belong in prison because they are CRIMINALS—not because they are any particular color.
If blacks keep turning their backs on every opportunity for an education, think gangs are better than families, and think attempting to take anything they want from anyone who has even one thing more than they have, then they put themselves into the criminal spotlight.

I want criminals either in prison for a long time or I want them dead.
I do not want them out in society, among those of use who are working every day to take care of ourselves, causing more mayhem.
If I had my total choice, I would prefer an ounce and a half of lead to years of color TV and weight rooms and taxpayer funded lawyers. Recidivism is way too high to continue trying to make me balieve “they can be changed” by the loopy head shrinkers who tell us that. The head shrinkers have job security for life and then some with the number of criminals.

In a society that is getting bigger and bigger every day, prison reform will be a requirement. We are forever putting dangerous, society-hating felons in prison for 20 years to life. What if we simply executed those violent 20year+ felons? The prison population would be seriously decreased and prisons might actually stand a chance of rehabilitating wrongdoers. The law-abiding population would be spared further crimes, in prison or out, by those felons. Taxpayers might also get a fair shake on their tax dollars. From all we hear about prison life, gangs rule and authority is circumvented at every turn. That cannot be allowed to continue. Whatever stern measures are required to restore order and obedience, they must be instituted. All the perks of life in prison, such as, television and work-out gyms must be eliminated. Libraries and newspapers should take their place. If exercise is desired, chain-gang work in the public interest should be considered.

This is from page 99 of the paperback edition to Obama’s autobiography, Dreams from My Father. Many people assume that he is similar to Tiger Woods because he constantly refers to his white mother “from Kansas” and black father “from Kenya.” He has benefited from the efforts of the Multiracial movement to make racially mixed families and racially mixed ancestry respectable and overturn the “one drop” myth, but he is obviously not in favor of free choice - or at least no one has publicly dared to ask him if he still holds to the views expressed below:

I didn’t have the luxury, I suppose, the certainty of the tribe. Grow up in Compton and survival becomes a revolutionary act...I had nothing to escape from except my own inner doubt. I was more like the black students who had grown up in the suburbs...You could spot them right away by the way they talked, the people they sat with in the cafeteria. When pressed, they would sputter and explain that they refused to be categorized. They weren’t defined by the color of their skin, they would tell you. They were individuals.

That’s how Joyce liked to talk. She was a good-looking woman, Joyce was, with her green eyes and honey skin and pouty lips...all the brothers were after her. One day I asked her if she was going to the Black Students’ Association meeting. She looked at me funny and then started shaking her head like a baby who doesn’t want what it sees on the spoon.

“I’m not black,” Joyce said. “I’m multiracial.” Then she started telling me about her father, who happened to be Italian and was the sweetest man in the world; and her mother, who happened to be part African and part French and part Native American and part something else. “Why should I have to choose between them?” she asked me. Her voice cracked, and I thought she was going to cry. “It’s not white people who are making me choose. Maybe it used to be that way, but now they’re willing to treat me like a person. No–it’s black people who always have to make everything racial. They’re the ones making me choose. They’re the ones who are telling me that I can’t be who I am...”
