Obama and whites, Obama and America
The words were like a fist in my stomach, and I wobbled to regain my composure…. The earth shook under my feet, ready to crack open at any moment. I stopped, trying to steady myself, and knew for the first time that I was utterly alone.
In the normal course of events, the process [of the socialization of a society] takes a while. But Obama believes in “the fierce urgency of now”, and fierce it is. That’s where all the poor befuddled sober centrists who can’t understand why the Democrats keep passing incoherent 1,200-page bills every week are missing the point. If “health care” were about health care, the devil would be in the details. But it’s not about health or costs or coverage; it’s about getting over the river and burning the bridge. It doesn’t matter what form of governmentalized health care gets passed as long as it passes. Once it’s in place, it will be “reformed”, endlessly, but it will never be undone.
Note: As best as can be discerned from Steve Sailer’s extensive writings on Dreams from My Father, the sole basis in the book for Obama’s reference to his grandmother’s confession of fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and for his report that his grandmother uttered racial and ethnic stereotypes that made him cringe, is Obama’s grandfather’s remark to him that the man who had frightened his grandmother was black. The book contains zero references to his grandmother’s ever saying anything negative about blacks. But in 2008, Obama threw his grandmother under the bus to make her the moral equivalent of Jeremiah Wright. He could no more reject Wright for his incendiary racial remarks, he told the nation, than he could reject his grandmother who had uttered stereotypes about blacks and confessed she was afraid of black men who passed her on the street.
