Coming Out of the Fog

I am posting this information for those of you who did not catch Rush Limbaugh on Friday afternoon (6/26/09). On his program he read from an article by L. E. Ikenga, an African woman who has lived in the U.S. since the 1970's. The article, titled Obama, the African Colonial, explains the cultural mindset motivating our president, and who he really is.

Ikenga's article is moderately substantial in length, but once the reader is engaged they will have no problem finishing. She posits that Obama is what she calls an "African Colonial." I had not heard the term before but her description provides what I think is clear insight into the soul of the man in the White House. She writes:

"The African colonial (AC) is a person who by means of their birth or lineage has a direct connection with Africa. However, unlike Africans like me, their worldviews have been largely shaped not by the indigenous beliefs of a specific African tribe but by the ideals of the European imperialism that overwhelmed and dominated Africa during the colonial period. AC's have no real regard for their specific African traditions or histories. AC's use aspects of their African culture as one would use pieces of costume jewelry: things of little or no value that can be thoughtlessly discarded when they become a negative distraction, or used on a whim to decorate oneself in order to seem exotic. (Hint: Obama's Muslim heritage)."

Using Obama's Dreams From My Father as a springboard, the author concludes that our president sees himself not as a "black American" but as an "African." She writes:

In his 1995 memoir, Dreams From My Father -- an eloquent piece of political propaganda -- Obama styles himself as a misunderstood intellectual who is deeply affected by the sufferings of black people, especially in America and Africa. In the book, Obama clearly sees himself as an African, not as a black American. And to prove this, he goes on a quest to understand his Kenyan roots. He is extremely thoughtful of his deceased father's legacy; this provides the main clue for understanding Barack Obama.

She then goes on to lay out a fairly bleak picture of the future, concluding her article with these words:

"... understand this: the African colonial who is given too much political power can only become one thing: a despot.

Prior to the November election, much noise was made in the conservative media about Obama's connections to men like the American terrorist, Bill Ayers and to the radical pastor Jeremiah Wright. He also sidled up to other like-minded America haters and cut his teeth as a "community organizer" in Chicago in the "school" of the radical Marxist Saul Alinsky. To date, Obama has yet to provide indisputable evidence of an American birth and many of his college records remain under lock and key.

While conservative pundits sounded the alarm in the summer and fall of 2008, the mainstream media buried their heads in the sand, so wildly enamored with this charismatic, yet enigmatic figure. Today, nearly eight months following that fateful November election, millions of Americans remain in denial about what we have done to ourselves.

I am confident that an unpleasant awakening is around the corner, a day or a season when Americans begin to realize the truth. Signs of this coming watershed moment are already beginning to appear. America committed a grave error in judgment last fall. Let us hope and pray it is not fatal to our republic.

I strongly suggest that you read the entire article.
It cleared up a whole lot of my mental fog surrounding this mysterious man that we have elected as our president.

But beware, it is not pretty.
