A summary of what makes President Punchdrunk tick.
By Joy Tiz , Canada Free Press.
“It was in this context that I came across the picture in Life Magazine of the black man who had tried to peel off his skin . . . I know that seeing that article was violent for me, an ambush attack.”
Barack Obama describes his racial awakening at age nine and the impact of the disturbing image of a black man driven to self mutilation to escape his blackness (Michael Jackson was just a kid at the time). Powerful images.
Also entirely false. Life never published any such photos.
Later Obama would talk about his great struggle with racial issues at Punahou School in Hawaii. Former classmates don’t dispute that there were racial discussions at Punahou. But according to Sharon Churcher of the UK Daily Mail Online Barry Obama was not a part of those discussions.
The character in Obama’s alleged autobiography known as “Ray” in real life is Keith Kakugawa also disputes Obama’s self portrayal as an “angry black man”. According to Churcher, the two had lots of long, “soulful” discussions but never about race. What Keith does remember was Barry’s intense longing for his parents.
Obama recalls being “tortured” by fellow students at Punahau. But school friends recall it a bit differently and remember Obama as a “spoiled high achiever” according to Churcher.
Traditionally works of fiction are identified as such. In his preface to the 2004 edition of Dreams From My Father Obama says he cannot honestly say that the voice in the book is not his or that he would tell the story much differently today than I did ten years ago (Pg. 4).
Chicago Tribune reporters Kirsten Scharnberg and Kim Barker interviewed more than forty of Obama’s former classmates, teachers, friends and neighbors and came to the startling conclusion that “several of his oft recited stories may not have happened the way he has recounted them.”
……Most of us will admit to doing less than sensible things when we were young and in love. But young Ann Dunham (his mother) took it a bit further than sending a few really dopey Hallmark cards. Ann met Indonesian Lolo Soetoro and married him when Barry was about six years old. Starting a new life with a new husband is one thing but dragging a young child to a Third World country is quite another.
Jakarta, Indonesia in the 1960’s was a harsh place for a child. Not much of an infrastructure and staggering inflation which was creating shortages. Indonesia was a violent place in the era following hostilities with the Dutch. Not exactly the white picket fence kind of place.
Life was hard for little Barry Soetoro in Indonesia. According to Sharnberg and Barker, Barry was “teased mercilessly” by the other kids. Obama now claims he became fluent in Indonesian within six months but his teacher recalls it differently and claims he “struggled greatly” according to Sharnberg and Barker.
……Another one of Barry’s splendid adult role models was communist, poet, alcoholic, sexual deviant and fomenter of racial hatred, Frank Marshall Davis. Cleverly disguised as “Frank” in Dreams, we learn that young Barry was treated to Davis’ counsel on numerous occasions. Dear Grandpa Stanley, blessed with an inordinate amount of free time thanks to his wife’s hard work, enjoyed whiling away the hours with Davis, drinking and smoking pot.
Davis was an open supporter of the Soviet Union and his influence on Obama is hard to miss. The poet also admitted to writing a pornographic novel under the pseudonym of Bob Greene in which the protagonist seduces a 13 year old girl. Davis claimed he had changed names and identities but the novel was based on actual experiences. To clarify the depth of Marshall’s perversion: he actually believed sex with a 13 year old child would be in the child’s best interests. He graciously spared her the sting of rejection and made certain her earliest sexual experiences would be with the maestro himself, according to Toby Harnden in the Telegraph. Davis also proudly proclaimed himself bisexual, a voyeur and exhibitionist who wished he’d had two penises.
Davis was an important mentor to Obama and shared his special version of how to improve race relations: “never trust white people”. Davis died in 1987 but was eventually replaced by Reverend Jeremiah Wright.
……Narcissists are also thin skinned and unable to tolerate any form of criticism. Obama has been quick to lash out at private citizens, including Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh and his administration makes no secret of their wish to shut down talk radio, the one reliable outlet for criticism of the government.
Obama’s grandiosity is striking. It’s in his body language and posturing. It’s in his derisive comments about “bitter clingers”. In office, Obama has demonstrated early on his sense of entitlement and his belief that he is above the law.
Narcissists can be dangerous. They lack the capacity for empathy. Bill Clinton is a narcissist who learned to mimic normal emotions and convince people he felt their pain. In the words of Peggy Noonan, Clinton is a “great actor”. A narcissist needs a constant source of narcissistic supply. They need the constant attention and accolades…..
Barry Soetoro suffered through a traumatic childhood. He didn’t get the stable, nurturing, loving parents he needed. But lots of people overcome childhood trauma and live healthy happy lives. What we need to be concerned about is Obama’s lack of insight into his own issues. In Dreams, he falls into the typical pattern of idealizing his absent parents rather than confronting the reality of who they were and how they treated him. At no point does Obama acknowledge that his childhood caused him any problems instead he projects his rage onto white people. Every bad break, including his parents’ divorce was caused by “racism”.
This is not a man in touch with external reality. The rage is certainly justified, he was gypped out of a normal, stable childhood. We can all feel angry and sad for what little Barry Soetoro endured. But we cannot ignore how much distance Obama has from reality. He could have called Dreams from My Father a work of fiction. But that would require that he knew it was fiction.
……The current leader of the free world is not in touch with reality. The toady press gleefully accepts his fabrications and denials. And mental health professionals have shown a remarkable lack of curiosity about the mental health of the President of the United States.
I agree with Tiz’ assessment that Obama’s unstable childhood and radical background created a socialist airhead, but at some point people must realize that his behavior and actions rest solely on his adult shoulders.
Obama’s cult of personality was fed by a leftwing media that equals, measure for measure, the same effete narcissism and leftwing ideology as the monster they created.
The combination of a tin god and a sycophantic media is toxic, to say the least. The MSM played Marcia Jeffries to Obama’s Larry ‘Lonesome’ Rhodes, and the result is a megalomaniac that cannot accept dissent or disagreement. What he lacks in character, integrity, principles, and patriotism, he makes up for in charisma.
Woefully unfit for the presidency, the media will continue to prop up this faux messiah until both collapse under the weight of their own invention.
