Excellent article on Obama, well worth the read.
Via Canada Free Press
“It was in this context that I came across the picture in Life Magazine of the black man who had tried to peel off his skin . . . I know that seeing that article was violent for me, an ambush attack.”If you're thinking "but this is Canada Free Press". A little about the author of this article:
Barack Obama describes his racial awakening at age nine and the impact of the disturbing image of a black man driven to self mutilation to escape his blackness (Michael Jackson was just a kid at the time). Powerful images.
Also entirely false. Life never published any such photos.
Later Obama would talk about his great struggle with racial issues at Punahou School in Hawaii. Former classmates don’t dispute that there were racial discussions at Punahou. But according to Sharon Churcher of the UK Daily Mail Online Barry Obama was not a part of those discussions.
The character in Obama’s alleged autobiography known as “Ray” in real life is Keith Kakugawa also disputes Obama’s self portrayal as an “angry black man”. According to Churcher, the two had lots of long, “soulful” discussions but never about race. What Keith does remember was Barry’s intense longing for his parents.
Obama recalls being “tortured” by fellow students at Punahau. But school friends recall it a bit differently and remember Obama as a “spoiled high achiever” according to Churcher.
Traditionally works of fiction are identified as such. In his preface to the 2004 edition of Dreams From My Father Obama says he cannot honestly say that the voice in the book is not his or that he would tell the story much differently today than I did ten years ago (Pg. 4).
Chicago Tribune reporters Kirsten Scharnberg and Kim Barker interviewed more than forty of Obama’s former classmates, teachers, friends and neighbors and came to the startling conclusion that “several of his oft recited stories may not have happened the way he has recounted them.”
While the mainstream media loves to rhapsodize about Barack Obama’s Remarkable Journey™ what deserves more attention is the psychology of the man who is now the most powerful person in the world. Actually it would have been more useful had the mainstream press been willing to give some serious thought to Obama’s mental health before November 4, 2008.
The press is thoroughly enchanted with the Obama biracial, multicultural extravaganza of a life story so it is no surprise that the actual facts are far from the romantic fairy tale the media has confabulated. Instead when we examine Obama’s childhood and adolescence we find abandonment, chaos, alcoholism and abuse along with an excruciating quest for identity that has not been resolved. [...more]
