Obama’s South African Speech Reminds Us Again: He’s Not an American at Heart

On last Sunday’s showwe heard some sound bites from yet another TelePrompTer reading in front of another audience of wet-behind-the-ears college kids by our Sham WOW (Walks on Water) occupant of the Oval Office, featuring the inevitable, and seemingly endless, recounting of events involving the most fascinating subject in the history of everything, Barack Hussein Obama. This time, the subject was the serendipitous series of events that made it possible for us to enjoy the amazing leadership of the most brilliant, wise and nearly-perfect human being to walk the earth and to lead a nation, the One himself. Here’s a portion from the speech:

Some of you may be aware of this, but I actually took my first step into political life because of South Africa. (Applause.) This is true. I was the same age as some of you — 19 years old, my whole life ahead of me. I was going to school on a campus in California — not quite as pretty as this one — (laughter) — but similar. And I must confess I was not always focused on my studies. (Laughter.) There were a lot of distractions. (Laughter.) And I enjoyed those distractions.

And as the son of an African father and a white American mother, the diversity of America was in my blood, but I had never cared much for politics. I didn’t think it mattered to me. I didn’t think I could make a difference. And like many young people, I thought that cynicism — a certain ironic detachment — was a sign of wisdom and sophistication.

But then I learned what was happening here in South Africa. And two young men, ANC representatives, came to our college and spoke, and I spent time hearing their stories. And I learned about the courage of those who waged the Defiance Campaign, and the brutality leveled against innocent men, women and children from Sharpeville to Soweto. And I studied the leadership of Luthuli, and the words of Biko, and the example of Madiba, and I knew that while brave people were imprisoned just off these shores on Robben Island, my own government in the United States was not standing on their side. That’s why I got involved in what was known as the divestment movement in the United States.

Have you ever heard Barack Obama speak about studying James Madison or John Adams? OF COURSE NOT! He has described our precious Constitution contemptuously as a document of “negative rights,” meaning an obstacle to his plans to redistribute income at the point of government-wielded gun. Like his many radical leftist mentors and friends, he considers the Founders evil dead white Europeans, whose tolerance of slavery makes them worthy of nothing but contempt. The country they created is in his mind forever tarred with this original sin, and even the loss of 600,000 in the Civil War to end it can’t redeem unfair, racist Amerika. It’s only through his schemes to “remake” the country that things can  be set right.

I don’t care where this guy was born, as I’ve said repeatedly. Since both of his parents were not American citizens at the time of his birth, he’s not an Article II “natural born citizen,” a requirement that the Founders in their stunning wisdom understood was critical for the leader of this improbable nation.
