Why Barack Obama doesn't much care for Britain
The Telegraph ^ | 12/8/2010 | Daniel Hannan

Posted on 12/08/2010 1:30:48 PM PST by mojito

Let’s review the evidence. President Obama received from Gordon Brown a pen-holder made from the timbers of a Royal Navy anti-slavery vessel, and reciprocated with DVDs. He silkily downgraded the UK from “our closest ally” to “one of our allies”. He gave the Queen an iPod full of his own speeches. He used the Louisiana oil spill to attack an imaginary company called “British Petroleum” (it has been BP for the past decade, ever since the merger with Amoco gave it as many American as British shareholders). He sent a bust of Winston Churchill back to the British Embassy. He managed, on his visit to West Africa, to refer to the struggle for independence, but not to the Royal Navy’s campaign against slavery. He has refused to acknowledge our presence in Afghanistan in any major speech. He has even come dangerously close to backing Peronist Argentina’s claim to the Falkland Islands. There’s no getting away from it: Barack Obama doesn’t much like Limeys.

What has he got against us?

Because it's not Kenya or Indonesia, the only places he has any real affection for.

Interesting read, especially the part about his father's visit to his Hawaiian class.

I’d think that his deep-seated and barely-concealed hatred for white folks would color his opinion of a country so full of them damn crackers.

The Same reason he gave Britian Churchill’s bust back.From October 1952 to December 1959, Kenya was under a state of emergency arising from the Mau Mau rebellion against British rule. The governor requested and obtained British and African troops, including the King’s African Rifles. The British began counter-insurgency operations; in May 1953 General Sir George Erskine took charge as commander-in-chief of the colony’s armed forces in May 1953, with the personal backing of Winston Churchill.[27]

Obama is technically a subject of the British Empire by his fathers birthrights, and since momma was too young to give him anything American.

Who’s your Daddy Barack Hussein Obama?

Because the Brits threw his Mau Mau grandfather in jail as a terrorist.

For those too young to remember it, the Mau Mau went around killing any white they could get their hands on, including women and children. Especially vicious were some household workers or gardeners who turned against their British employers.

Obama comes from a long line of Muslims, Communists, terrorists, and in earlier days, slave traders.

And yet these morons thought he was the Second Coming of Jesus Christ a little over a year ago. Their reaction to the Big 0 and their reaction to Diana’s death lead me to conclude they have completely lost the ability to think like rational adults.

Some will dismiss D’Souza as an angry conservative. In fact, until now, he has said nothing critical about his president. He is obviously uncomfortable with shrill attacks on Obama that alienated so many people (including me) at the 2008 election (”he’s a Muslim, he’s a Marxist, he pals around with terrorists, where’s his birth certificate blah blah”).

Oh yea, blah, blah, blah. So, where IS that damn birth certificate Mr. Hannon. This is not blah, blah, blah stuff, it is part of our Constitution for eligibility to become President of these United States which you may recall won independence from you Limeys a few hundred years ago. It is a very big deal hereabouts Mr Limey.

ZERO THE MAGIC NEGRO

Zero the Magic Negro lives in D.C.
And frolicks in his liberal world
In a Land of Fantasy.

He hates the stinkin’ White Man
And it’s Brits he hates the most
For they pillaged in his Homeland
Now haunted by African ghosts.

He covets all your riches
To pass out to his friends.
This evil, racist country has
Got to make amends.

No nation lives forever.
There comes the turning of the worm.
Now The One who pulls the lever
Can’t wait to make you squirm.

He’s Zero the Magic Negro
And he rules in D.C.
He wants to be the Hero
Of P.C. History!!!

Don't forget the reason that Great Britain colonized Kenya in the first place: to force a recalcitrant country to give up the slave trade a generation after our Civil War ended.

It is likely that Obama's Daddy's ancestors (as much Arab as black, by the way), profited highly from the slave trade. Almost all descendants of former slaves in America trace their ancestry back to the countries along the west central coast.

Almost all of them were captured and sold into slavery by Muslim traders along Africa's east central coast, notably Kenya's Luo Tribe.

Mr. Hannan has admitted that he was fooled into believing that Obama was a moderate in 2008; he has since revised his opinion.

Obama’s the perfect example of why the “natural born” clause is in the Constitution. Natural born naturally means BOTH parents, which would prevent the kind of international ax-grinding attitude (since Obama is, actually, 1/2 Kenyan) which the author (through D’Sousa’s anti-colonial thesis) clearly illustrates is Obama’s problem.
