I am not sure why the writings of Obama have not been sufficiently vetted in the media. In or out of context, the quotes are disconcerting. If you were to add up all that the MSM brushes aside - associations, statements made, philosphies espoused, etc., it is distressing how one so inexperienced and whose beliefs are so contrary to the founding principles of our nation can hold our nation captive. Are we so blinded by the challenges we face in our nation, so caught up in ourselves and the entitled society that we have become snared in the "flaxen cord" flatteries of one so extreme?
Quotes from the writings of Barack Obama.
From Dreams of My Father: 'I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.'
From Dreams of My Father: 'I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race.'
From Dreams of My Father: 'There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.'
From Dreams of My Father: 'It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.'
From Dreams of My Father: 'I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa , that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.'
From Audacity of Hope: 'I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.'
