Ace of Spades has lately been referring to Obama as “President Bullworth Truthbomb” in reference to Obama’s reported fantasy of “going Bulworth,” that is, behaving like the protagonist of Warren Beatty’s 1998 film, Bulworth.
Bulworth is a Senator who finally breaks free of the constraints of American politics to say what he really thinks. And what he thinks consists largely of obscene raps and wild speeches openly pushing for socialism.
Obama and his acolytes have been dropping these Bullworthian “truthbombs” on the electorate with a vengeance since the midterm elections – in the wake of which Obama said he was finally “liberated” to do and say whatever he pleases.
At a private dinner at the 21 Club in NYC, former Mayor Giuliani said of Obama, “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”
For the liberal media – (and at least one dork in the conservative media) this was a controversial thing to say. But for those of us, who are not charter members of the Barack Obama fan club – not so much. It’s what many of us have been feeling for over six years.
Really since he hit the scene in 2008, and I started really paying attention to him – it was obvious to me that we had a very different type of political animal on our hands running for president – (irrespective of his brown skin and “funny name.”) This is a man who did not have the standard all-American background past presidents have always had. He had spent his formative years in Indonesia, being raised a Muslim in a Muslim country. Obama was never a boy scout. He didn’t play little league. He didn’t go to church on Sunday. He did have a tranny nanny.
Later on in Hawaii, he was mentored by a communist writer and activist. He spent his college days hanging around radical activists.
“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structured feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism and patriarchy.
And there is no evidence that he ever discarded his Marxist predispositions. Indeed, all the evidence points to the fact that he hasn’t.
In Chicago, he worked as a radical community organizer using the tactics of the communist Saul Alinsky. As a stepping stone into Chicago politics, he attended a radical black church. He was introduced to Chicago politics by a communist Bill Ayers. His friends have always been far-leftists and Islamist radicals.
Good God, it’s been a living nightmare having this man as our president.
It’s about damn time someone started mainstreaming what so many of us have been feeling for the past 7 years.
Andrew McCarthy, NRO: Find the ‘Countering Violent Extremism Summit’ at the Intersection of Islamists and Leftists:
You may understandably think of it as an ISIS jobs fair, but the ongoing confab in Washington is officially known as President Obama’s “summit” on “Countering Violent Extremism.” That being the case, many Americans seem surprised at the appearance of Salam al-Marayati, leader of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). After all, the White House is having a public hissy fit over the upcoming speech to Congress by Obama’s bête noire, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. An odd time, one might think, for the POTUS to be so chummy with a Muslim activist best know for theorizing, right after the 9/11 attacks, that “we should put the State of Israel on the suspect list.”
But National Review readers will not be surprised. Marayati and MPAC figured in my 2010 book on the Muslim Brotherhood’s U.S. operations – The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America (“grand jihad” and “sabotage” are lifted verbatim from an internal Brotherhood memo that describes the Islamists’ objective to infiltrate and destroy our country). And three years ago, I profiled Marayati and MPAC in this NRO column.
