(from a communication I received.)
Who is this guy?
I've read everything I could get my hands on about this guy in the last 18 months and I know less about him now than I did at the beginning.
Is he a Muslim? -- I don't think so.
But, I don't think he's a Christian, either.
He's a Socialist -- and worse he's an Alinsky socialist.
His "thing" is getting people "pissed off." That's what Alinsky-style "community organizers" do. Community organizers, in Alinsky's words, "rub raw the sores of discontent." They don't go off on Jihad.
Yet, there is a part of Obama that is Muslim. There's the prepubescent youngster who lived in a Muslim household, in a Muslim country, attended a Muslim school, undoubtedly eager to please his peers and teachers, anddoing his best to be a good little Muslim boy to please his new step-father.
The Jesuits would say, "Give me the child, and I will mold the man."
But then -- Shazaaaam! -- young Obama is in Hawaii -- abandoned by his father, and now, his mother.
During the day, he's going to school with the children of the Islands ' elites, telling his classmates that his father was an African prince, the leader of a proud and successful people.
During the evening, he's tutored by Frank Marshall Davis, grampa Stanley 's drinkin' buddy. Under Frank's tutelage, Marx replaced Muhammad.
There's still some Muslim in there somewhere -- some influence -- some sensitivity -- some empathy -- but, he's not a Muslim.
Davis, a radical black communist, fed the impressionable Obama a constant diet of "pissed off" and "blackness" all through his high school years. Davis 's parting words to Obama on his leaving for Occidental College were, "college is an advanced degree in compromise" and he warned Obama not to forget his "people" and not to "start believing what they tell you about equal opportunity and the American way and all that crap."
Obama, who grew up in a comfortable white household, has struggled to find an identity as a righteous black men ever since. Obama resisted "the pure and heady breeze of privilege" to which he was exposed as a child, and rejected his "white skin privilege" or at least tried to.
At Occidental, Obama sought out the more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists. But, even though Obama had a full-boat scholarship, Occidental wasn't black enough for him and after two years he headed east to Columbia University -- on the edge of Harlem .
Obama's Columbia experience is a complete mystery. No one, absolutely no one, remembers Obama from Columbia -- Fox News asked 400 ex-students and all Fox got was shrugs. There is no picture of him in the yearbook. The only thing we really know about this period is that Obama spent a lot of time at the Marxist-Socialist conferences at Cooper Union and African cultural fairs in Brooklyn .
Obama stopped drugging sometime during the Columbia period. He started abusing marijuana and cocaine at Punahou. "Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though," he wrote.
After a brief flirtation with New York , Obama was hired as a community organizer for the Developing Communities Project (DCP) of the Calumet Community Religious Conference (CCRC) in Chicago .The "Project" was funded by Bill Ayers' Woods Fund.
Obama was 24 years old, unmarried, and according to his memoir, searching for a genuine African-American community.
Both the CCRC and the DCP were built on the Alinsky model of community agitation, wherein paid organizers learned how to, in Alinsky's words, "rub raw the sores of discontent."
Alinsky viewed as supremely important the role of the organizer, or master manipulator, whose guidance was responsible for setting the agendas of the Peoples Organization. "The organizer," Alinsky wrote, "is in a true sense reaching for the highest level for which man can reach -- to create, to be a 'great creator,' to play God."
One of Obama's early mentors in the Alinsky method was Mike Kruglik, who had this to say to an interviewer of The New Republic, about Obama:
"He was a natural, the undisputed master of agitation, who could engage a room full of recruiting targets in a rapid-fire Socratic dialogue, nudging them to admit that they were not living up to their own standards. As with the panhandler, he could be aggressive and confrontational. With probing, sometimes personal questions, he would pinpoint the source of pain in their lives, tearing down their egos just enough before dangling a carrot of hope that they could make things better."
Júdica me, Deus.
