Tonight's case in point: Lisa Schiffren, a writer for National Review, which has a proud tradition of opposing race-mixing and communism. And that's gotten Schiffren to thinking: is it possible that Barack Obama is a secret product of a cabal of communist Jews bent on creating biracial children of African descent in a nefarious plot to seize America's vital bodily fluids?
Is it irresponsible to speculate? It would be irresponsible not to!
Obama and I are roughly the same age. I grew up in liberal circles in New York City — a place to which people who wished to rebel against their upbringings had gravitated for generations. And yet, all of my mixed race, black/white classmates throughout my youth, some of whom I am still in contact with, were the product of very culturally specific unions. They were always the offspring of a white mother, (in my circles, she was usually Jewish, but elsewhere not necessarily) and usually a highly educated black father. And how had these two come together at a time when it was neither natural nor easy for such relationships to flourish? Always through politics. No, not the young Republicans. Usually the Communist Youth League. Or maybe a different arm of the CPUSA. But, for a white woman to marry a black man in 1958, or 60, there was almost inevitably a connection to explicit Communist politics.
And we all know what happens when communists mate!
(During the Clinton Administration we were all introduced to then U. of Pennsylvania Professor Lani Guinier — also a half black/half Jewish, red diaper baby.)Lani Guinier -- why, she's history's greatest monster! At least, you know, after Jimmy Carter.
I don't know how Barak [sic] Obama's parents met. But the Kincaid article referenced above makes a very convincing case that Obama's family, later, (mid 1970s) in Hawaii, had close relations with a known black Communist intellectual. And, according to what Obama wrote in his first autobiography, the man in question — Frank Marshall Davis — appears to have been Barack's own mentor, and even a father figure.And therefore, Barack Obama is...the Manchurian Candidate!
Of course, since the Soviet Union itself no longer exists, it's an open question what it means practically to have been politically mentored by an official Communist. Ideologically, the implications are clearer.Yes! Having been taught by a communist would make you essentially identical to everyone who's taken Poli Sci 101 from the Marxist-Leninist professors at every school in America save for Liberty University. The horror!
Political correctness was invented precisely to prevent the mainstream liberal media from persuing the questions which might arise about how Senator Obama's mother, from Kansas, came to marry an African graduate student. Love? Sure, why not? But what else was going on around them that made it feasible?Yes, whatever could cause a man and a woman, both of them heterosexual, to engage in sexual intercourse? Oh, you may say "the same thing that makes most people engage in intercourse," but that's just communist propaganda. I mean, we all know that without communist interference, no whites would find Africans attractive, and vice versa. It's unthinkable! No, clearly, there had to be a purpose to the creation of Obama. And those wily commies, knowing he would one day be the lynchpin of their plan to seize control of our country, named him "Barack Hussein Obama," that being the perfect name to win presidential elections in the United States of America.
Before readers level cheap accusations of racism...Cheap? Do you know how much I pay for the internets each month?
...let's recall that the very question of interracial marriage only became a big issue later in the 1960s. The notion of a large group of mixed race Americans became an issue during and after the Vietnam War. Even the civil-rights movement kept this culturally explosive matter at arm's distance.She's right, I can't think of a single example of a mixed-race marriage before 1970. We all know that several states banned interracial marriage before the decision in Loving v. Virginia, and obviously, it was banned because it never, ever happened! Especially in a state like Hawai'i, which is, geographically speaking, pretty much in the heart of the Confederacy.
Time for some investigative journalism about the Obama family's background, now that his chances of being president have increased so much.Oh, God. You know what this means -- Michelle Malkin is, even now, constructing a time machine so she can go see what kind of countertops were in Barack Obama's childhood kitchen.
As dnA says:
It's amazing how little has changed since the 1950s, isn't it? This is why it's impossible to sever modern conservatism from white supremacy...because the language is almost exactly the same. The only thing that's changed is the name of The Enemy and who the overt hatred and fear at the "mongrelization of the races" is directed at.And, while we're at it, why it's impossible to separate modern conservatism from misogyny. Any ideology that doesn't understand why two young people might want to procreate is so blinkered as to beggar belief.
