I disrupted my Kenneth Roberts marathon to review a book that appears to be much discussed but seldom read. I have read several books by Dinesh D'Sousa and all of them are worth reading.
The title of laziest blogger on the Web belongs to Gene of Harry's place. Gene is the so called American presence on Harry's Place. He is your typical Europhile Socialist Cocktail Party Gadfly without an original thought. He does make the cliche anti American lefties feel comfortable by echoing their idiotic nostrums. Mostly, he repeats whatever the folks at Huffington post without bothering to do original work like reading books before commenting on them or listening to the talk radio shows before expounding imagined expertise. His sole expertise appears to be what type of food goes with white wine and Prozac.
The loons at Harry's Place posted what appeared to be a reasonable point. Glenn Beck making an insane comment about Obama inheriting political views from a father he barely knew. I decided to watch TV and on reruns I watched the Beck show on reruns and saw that the point was about a book that Gene failed to mention. Moreover, the
hysterical comments talked about Churchill's bust and the Mau Mau uprising which was a minor point in the book. It was fairly obvious that Gene does no original research and does not even bother watching the shows he comments on at length.
For the record, now that I commute I seldom get the chance to watch Fox News or listen to Talk Radio. I am familiar enough with the Soros sponsored lies to look for the facts before rushing to judgment. A comedic classic was when traitor Renegade Eye
went off on a rant about what appeared to be a song in dreadful taste called Obama the magic negro played on the Limbaugh show. The idiot was corrected by Craig Bardo (a brilliant Black Conservative) who set the record straight. The song was actually making fun of Al Sharpton's claim Obama wasn't authentically Black. It was a witty piece of satire from the clueless loons who think Al Franken is funny.
The book dismisses birthers and is actually too mild in tone. We have seen many far left types imagine that their Cold War antics were anti colonialism. The facts are that this is merely a guise that Bill Ayers types use to cloud their treasonous actions on behalf of Communist goonery sponsored by China, the USSR or Cuba. We have seen this fan dance where Fake Rabbi Michael Lerner points out he never joined the Communist Party. He merely pretends that his actions in aiding and abetting Communists brutality were anti colonial. In reality these movements merely replaced one form of colonialism with a more brutal form with a local face.
The book is thought provoking and well worth reading. The author does hint that we have not been told the actual story of the political freak that was the mother of Obama. The book furthers my suspicion as to the real reason Obama's grades have been hidden as the specter of a President who has benefited from affirmative action appears likely.
