D’SOUZA: HOW I BECAME GEORGE OBAMA’S ‘BROTHER’
Dinesh D’Souza and George Obama
First a bit about Dinesh D’Souza: D’Souza is the author of the New York Times best seller, “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” – which incidentally, I recommend as a must-read for anyone who still doesn’t understand what makes O tick. He also co-directed the documentary, “2016: Obama’s America”, which argues (correctly) that O was shaped by – and relentlessly pursues – his father’s leftist “anticolonial” ideals. D-Souza is also a former American Enterprise Institute fellow.
Reports of O’s disassociation (out of embarrassment or something more significant?) with African family members have been persistent for years. Now comes a poignant story from Dinesh D’Souza about a recent interaction with O’s half-brother, George Obama – whom the director met while filming “2016: Obama’s America.”
D’Souza’s column, “How I became George Obama’s ‘brother’”, via FoxNews.com:
A few days ago I received a call from a man I recently met named George. He was a bit flustered, and soon informed me that his young son was sick with a chest condition. He pleaded with me to send him $1,000 to cover the medical bills. Since George was at the hospital I asked him to let me speak to a nurse, and she confirmed that George’s son was indeed ill. So I agreed to send George the money through Western Union. He was profusely grateful. But before I hung up I asked George, “Why are you coming to me?” He said, “I have no one else to ask.” Then he said something that astounded me, “Dinesh, you are like a brother to me.”
Actually, George has a real life brother who just happens to be the President of the United States. (George Obama is the youngest of eight children sired by Barack Obama Sr.) George’s brother is a multimillionaire and the most powerful man in the world. Moreover, George’s brother has framed his re-election campaign around the “fair share” theme that we owe obligations to those who are less fortunate.
One of Obama’s favorite phrases comes right out of the Bible: “We are our brother’s keeper.” Yet, he has not contributed a penny to help his own brother. And evidently George does not believe, even in times of emergency, that he can turn to his brother in the White House for help.
Obama’s refusal to help George is especially surprising because George doesn’t just live in American-style poverty but rather in Third World poverty. He lives in a shanty in the Huruma slum in Nairobi. He gets by on a few dollars a month. Obama also has an aunt named Hawa Auma, his father’s sister, who ekes out a living selling coal on the streets of a small village in Kenya. She says she would like to have her teeth fixed, but she cannot afford it. Obama hasn’t offered to help her either. Continue reading…
I suspect the reaction to this article will be twofold: Conservatives will decry not only the hypocrisy of Barack Obama, but also the sickening fact that he turns his back on his own family out of embarrassment, political expediency or both – while liberals will shrug it off as nothing more than a “story” concocted by just another conservative with an ax to grind – and Fox News, of course. While it’s true that D’Souza and Fox may have had no problem reporting the story (just as the liberal media has no problem vice versa), this is also true: Shame on Barack Hussein Obama.
On second thought, all those golf outings and vacations in Hawaii and on Martha’s Vineyard are expensive; who has money left for a brother’s sick son?
