Obama: Ethnic Rage Boy

Laban points out a rare case of an MSM journalist getting splashed with some reality. Still, she skilfully manages to swerve round the elephant on the table, euphemistically talking about 'young men like this'. Like what, Eleanor ?

Hey, we can't blame Eleanor for not taking on a complete headcase, but we can expect her to call racist thuggery what it is, instead of hiding behind vague PC drivel.

Funnily enough, 'vague PC drivel' pretty much sums up the MSMs coverage of Barrack Obama too. Actually, I kind of like Bazza. He's proof that in America anyone can grow up to be an obnoxious elitist, but I'm not sure the soft-focus coverage is doing the Democrats any favours long-term. Sooner or later, people are going to notice that the most likely Democrat candidate for President of the United States is a full-on loon.

Obama has so far been allowed to skate by the MSM. The narrative is that Obama is an ideological Mr Magoo, so fixated on the big picture that he keeps failing to notice that his entourage is stuffed full of lunatics like the Reverend Wright. Unfortunately for the left, Obama's own writings make it clear that he's more than capable of holding his own in the lunacy stakes.

Inevitably, it's taken Ann Coulter to point out just how crazy Bazza actually is. Take his notorious condemnation of his grandmother as a racist 'typical white person'. Now read about the incident that exposed her supposed racism.

Yep, granny was a racist because she was worried about being hassled by a hobo. Hmmmm....

Spare us. No one who wasn't already thoroughly marinated in grievance culture could possibly take such a pathetic incident as proof of anything much. As Ann points out, it supposedly took Obama twentry years to realise that the Reverned Wright was a racist kook, but he instantly locks like a laser onto the real source of granny's hobophobia ?

It's not as if Bazza doesn't have form. Even mum doesn't get a break. But don't call him a racist kook:
In college, Obama explains to a girl why he was reading Joseph Conrad's 1902 classic, "Heart of Darkness": "I read the book to help me understand just what it is that makes white people so afraid. Their demons. The way ideas get twisted around. I helps me understand how people learn to hate."

By contrast, Malcolm X's autobiography "spoke" to Obama. One line in particular "stayed with me," he says. "He spoke of a wish he'd once had, the wish that the white blood that ran through him, there by an act of violence, might somehow be expunged."

Actually, it's not only the racial rheroric. What's striking about Obama's scribblings is that he seems to hover endlessly on the edge of deranged violence. But wait... that turns out to be a racial issue too:
Wanting to punch his white friend in the stomach was the introductory anecdote to a full-page psychotic rant about living by "the white man's rules." (One rule he missed was: "Never punch out your empathetic white friend after dragging him to a crappy all-black party.")

Obama's gaseous disquisition on the "white man's rules" leads to this charming crescendo: "Should you refuse this defeat and lash out at your captors, they would have a name for that, too, a name that could cage you just as good. Paranoid. Militant. Violent. Nigger."
Yes, if you punch people, they call you violent, which is exactly the same as using racial epithets and it's all part of the conspiracy to make Obama seem paranoid.

Ultimately though, Obama's urge to wrap everything in racial rhetoric is a wasted effort. What sticks in the mind isn't the racial aspect so much as Obama's overweening narcissism. Take his advice on handling white people:
It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned: People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves.
Presumably as opposed to all those cultures where people snarl obscenities at each other while furiously gesticulating ?

But no: merely having to abide by the basic standards of civilised discourse is a dreadful imposition on the Great Barrack. As Ann says:
We treat blacks like children, constantly talking about their temper tantrums right in front of them with airy phrases about black anger. I will not pat blacks on the head and say, "Isn't that cute?" As a post-racial American, I do not believe "the legacy of slavery" gives black people the right to be permanently ill-mannered.
Enough already. Racist thugs beating up bus passengers aren't caught in a 'cycle of violence', they're just racist thugs. The Reverend Wright is a race-hustling scumbag. And Obama ? A nasty, spoilt elitist, perpetually enraged that the world won't pander to his elephantine sense of entitlement.

Of course, in so far as Obama's ideology consist of little more than the reification of his own psychological issues, it seems he truly is the perfect flag bearer for modern liberalism.
