Obama: “At night, in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism…”

Via Punditokraterne. En skarp kommentar af John Derbyshire i National Review Online – Eight wasted years.

“‘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 structural 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.

Thus Barack Obama, writing in his autobiography about his time at the expensive liberal-arts college Occidental in California. I’d like to tell you that he goes on to mock his young self for naïvety and infantile leftism, to deplore the way those “Marxist professors” used their prestige and influence to fill young heads with poisonous rubbish long discredited by events in the real world. I’d like to, but I can’t, because he doesn’t. Obama doesn’t think Marxism is rubbish. He thinks it’s basically … correct…

Barack Obama… have the heart and soul of a cultural Marxist. He sees history in terms of class struggle, with pitiful, soulful Oppressed being brutalized and impoverished by arrogant, heartless Oppressors. Anyone who sees matters in these Who-Whom terms has absorbed the essence of Marxism…

This was the import of the Joe the Plumber incident… In Barack Obama’s worldview, the Who and the Whom are locked in a bitter struggle, from which the Whom is bound to emerge victorious at last. Then the victors, purified by suffering, will lead mankind on to the sunlit uplands where from each shall be taken according to his abilities, to each shall be given according to his needs.

That these doctrines are utterly false, completely mistaken, and catastrophically destructive in practice, is a thought Barack Obama cannot think. That “ability” and “needs” turn out to be shapeless and slippery concepts when politicians try to corral them, has not occurred to him… How could such thoughts have occurred to him? He was a red-diaper baby, offspring of a love-the-world, hate-America sixties gal and an African socialist in the Mugabe mould, raised by leftish grandparents addled with “Uncle Tim” racial guilt, and mentored by a hard-Left labor radical.

Pat Buchanan (Whom God Preserve!) gave his own autobiography the title Right from the Beginning. If Barack Obama had been a tad more honest when writing his, he could just as well have titled it Left from the Beginning…

Margaret Thatcher used to talk about the “ratchet effect.” When the Left gets power, she said, they drive everything Left; when the Right gets power, they slow the Leftward drive, perhaps even halt it for a spell; but nothing ever gets moved to the Right… I see that some of my NRO colleagues are scratching around for shards of optimism — of Hope! — in the general wreckage. Good luck to them. I see nothing for conservatives to hope for in an Obama administration.”

    2. Brev fra Bestyrelsesformand:
      >
      > Kære Kollegaer,
      Ssom bestyrelsesformand og chef til 140 ansatte er det mig pålagt at akzeptere at Mr Obama blev valgt som President i USA og at skatter og afgifter vil stige i stort omfang.
      >
      > For at udligne denne forhøjelse regner jeg med, at vores priser skal stige med ca 8%. Men på grund af den forfærdelige økonomiske situation vi befinder os i lige nu, er det ikke særlig smart at forhøje prisernen. Vi kan selvfølgelig kompensere ved at fyre 6 ansatte. Det piner mig rigtig meget at traeffe sådan en beslutning ,fordi jeg synes vi er en stor familie og jeg vidste ikke rigtig, hvem der skal fyres.
      Men så gik jeg mig en tur på vores parkeringsplads og fandt 6 biler med ” Støt Obama ” klistemærker på kofængeren.Så besluttete jeg, at det var dem der skal fyres. Det synes jeg er fair. Det er dem der krævede forændring. Det få de så.
      Har en god dag

    4. Bortset fra ded, er jeg meget spændende på (som min fhv nabo altid sagde), om det nu bliver Paradis på Jord ved hjælp af Obamsen og Hilarious som Udenrigsminister.

      Thor og Freja, giv mig styrke!

    5. Ud over den nok er sand, så er den også smukt skrevet. Og jo jo, Fra nu at så får alle Oh-bambi tilhængere, der jublede så tårende trillede ned ad de små ræverøde æææblekinder, ja de får det skulende øje at føle… skule skule.. og ikke om jeg vil låne dem en rød reje, når de jamrer at de er falit, og da slet ikke penge.

      Og ud over at skule vil jeg knirke med mine sko.. he he, så kan de lære det!

    6. Pat Buchanan (Whom God Preserve!) ??

      The prophet muhammed (peace be upon him) ??

      og med ét tabte foratteren alt sin argumentation på gulvet – det minder for meget om islam’s skinger logik til at jeg gider bide på – typisk højreorienteret hyleri over “de røde kommer”…som at høre Gordon Libby eller nogle af de andre (ganske brækværdige) Amerikanske Right-Wing Nutters….og jeg som ellers ikke er særlig velvillig overfor venstrefløjen normalt.

    7. Kære Anna, du bliver altså nødt til at leve med mine stævefejl. Det er ikke så længe siden jeg begyndte med dansk og jeg er for gammelt til at jeg prioriteree stævning af et fremmed sprog som mit livs hovedinhold. Men kan du forklare mig hvor det med ” Berufsverbot ” kommer fra.
      Med venlig hilsen
