    1. “ Having trouble understanding President Obama's "worldview"? Former speaker of the House of Representatives and possible Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich may be able to help! According to Newt, you can only understand Obama if you "understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior." http://gawker.com/5636212/newt-gingrich-kenyan-anti+colonial-behavior-is-model-for-obama

    a. In short, the President is motivated by a Third World, anti-American ideology.



    2. “Anti-colonialism” is one of the most powerful political forces in the non-Western world in the last 100 years, and is both a cornerstone of Western liberalism, and, tied to anti-American views, a major direction of teaching at most leading colleges and universities.

    3. The major tenets of anti-colonialism include the following: “The wealth of the imperial countries is our wealth too,” writes Franz Fanon in “The Wretched of the Earth.” Fanon fought in the Algerian revolution against he French; Obama says that in college he relished reading and quoting Fanon. “or in a very concrete way Europe has stuffed herself inordinately with the gold and raw materials of the colonial countries….Europe is literally the creation of the Third world….wealth stolen from the underdeveloped peoples.”
    Dinesh D’Souza, “Obama’s America,” p. 11.

    a. Therefore, the core of anti-colonialism is theft: the looting of poorer countries.

    4. A second tenet is that ‘exploitation’ continues even after the colonizing nations have left; it is referred to as ‘neocolonialism”….economic piracy even after the political piracy has been removed.

    a. Distant banks, drug companies, oil companies, etc., continue the exploitation….so said Kwame Nkrumah, in “Neocolonialism: Neo-Colonialism, The Last Stage of Imperialism.”

    b. “…believed capitalism had malignant effects that were going to stay with Africa for a long time. …, Nkrumah argued that socialism was the system that would best accommodate the changes that capitalism had brought,…” Kwame Nkrumah - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    c. In 1973, Jean Raspail published The Camp of the Saints, in which millions of immigrants traveled from the Ganges to France. An all-powerful, multiculturally correct intelligentsia that has taught Europe that it must atone for its racist, colonial guilt welcomes the invasion. European culture is destroyed. Prescient.

    d. Anti-colonialists demand that ‘stolen’ wealth be redistributed from the people of the rich countries to those in the poor.





    5. The corollary of colonialism was racism, as the British and French established colonies, they installed white people as rulers over black, yellow and brown folks.

    a. African writer Chinweizu makes the point, though, that the British didn’t take over because of the color of people in Kenya or India, but because of economic benefits. Chinweizu, “The West and the Rest of Us,” p. 406.




    6. Third, it is a core belief of anti-colonialists today that America has replaced Europe as the main perpetrator of global theft and exploitation. Palestinian writer Edwaerd Said, on of Obama’s teachers at Columbia, adds: “America began as an empire during the 19th century, but it was in the second half of the 20th, after the decolonization of the British and French empires that it directly followed its two great predecessors.”

    a. America is “the machine for crushing, for grinding, for degrading peoples.”
    Aime Cesaire, “Discourse on Colonialism.” http://www.bandung2.co.uk/books/Files/Politics/Poli2.htm

    7. So, what to expect from this President?

    a. Chinweizu: : “European rule was entrenched…by means of a western Christian culture, a western political power structure, and a colonial economy,” anti-colonialism “involves measures against all three.”

    b. “Redistribution…make the fruits of the earth available to all right here on earth.” Chinweizu, Op.Cit., p.137.




    8. Need one look any further to understand our President? Redistribution….globally. This doesn’t mean just millionaires and billionaires….this means all Americans, requiring a diminution in the standard of living of every American. Further, power must be distributed, until America is no longer preeminent, and not any more than any other nation. Dinesh D’Souza, “Obama’s America,” p.12-13.


    This is what a vote for Obama entails....hatred of Western civilization, Christianity, and exceptionalism.

    What we really need is a pro-colonialist in office.

    By using the word "now" you indicate that you didn't understand the OP.

    Try again.

    I just used now because this is the first time that I'd seen an anti-obamite use these characters as a point of reference.

    There were some parts of the OP which I didn't understand, or understood differently.

    1. I suspect your political beliefs have impacted your mental health to such a degree that paranoid schizophrenia needs to be ruled out.

    2. Moral, amoral and immoral are terms which confused you in another thread. Since the proper application of those terms in this most recent of your rants is noticeably absent one must presume you are still confused.

    Ah yes...

    As if someone should take the rambling of Newt Gingrich seriously.

    Just like your shallow sense of "wit", your ignorance knows no bounds.
