Joseph Farah loves Dinesh D’Souza and has been busily promoting the latter’s idiotic documentary that expands his ridiculous accusations — not praise, accusations — that Obama is “anti-colonial.” I don’t know how that could possibly be a bad thing, especially to someone born in India, but D’Souza’s brain is little more than a fever swamp of right wing crazy. Farah is not happy, however, that D’Souza is not a birther:
It’s a very good column – and D’Souza’s new book and movie provide some interesting clues into Obama’s worldview.
Yet, his examination of Obama falls a little short of the bull’s-eye in one respect: While remaining skeptical about Obama’s claims to compassion and the candor of his oft-used phrase, “We are our brother’s keeper,” D’Souza accepts at face value Obama’s identity claims.
- He accepts Obama was born at Kapi’olani Hospital in Honolulu Aug. 4, 1961. Why? Because that’s the story Obama tells in his ghostwritten autobiography.
- He accepts that his parents were Barack Obama Sr., a Kenyan visiting student, and Stanley Ann Dunham, a “progressive” ideologue. Why? Because Obama says so.
- And he accepts that Barack Obama actually has real blood relatives in Kenya. Why? Because Obama says so.
It doesn’t seem to occur to the scholar that one reason Barack Obama may be reluctant to help George Obama is because he’s not really his brother at all – that Obama’s life story is fraudulent from the get-go, little more than a fairy tale concocted to make the ambitious young politician more intriguing and perhaps less threatening than reality.
When Dinesh D’Souza isn’t right wing loony enough for you, you’ve left reality far behind.
