Dinesh D’Souza should be commended for sending George Obama $1,000 to cover his son’s urgent medical bills – something George’s millionaire “brother,” who happens to be president of the United States, was apparently not willing to do.
In a column today, D’Souza effectively makes the point that Barack Obama’s lack of interest in helping his impoverished and needy family members, even in time of an emergency, suggests his self-righteous boasts of compassion ring hollow indeed.
It was D’Souza whom George Obama called for help – having met him during the shooting of the movie “2016 Obama’s America,” a documentary about what motivates Barack Obama.
D’Souza asked George during the call, “Why are you coming to me?” His response, “I have no one else to ask.” D’Souza writes: “Then he said something that astounded me, ‘Dinesh, you are like a brother to me.’”
It’s a very good column – and D’Souza’s new book and movie provide some interesting clues into Obama’s worldview.
Yet, his examination of Obama falls a little short of the bull’s-eye in one respect: While remaining skeptical about Obama’s claims to compassion and the candor of his oft-used phrase, “We are our brother’s keeper,” D’Souza accepts at face value Obama’s identity claims.
- He accepts Obama was born at Kapi’olani Hospital in Honolulu Aug. 4, 1961. Why? Because that’s the story Obama tells in his ghostwritten autobiography.
- He accepts that his parents were Barack Obama Sr., a Kenyan visiting student, and Stanley Ann Dunham, a “progressive” ideologue. Why? Because Obama says so.
- And he accepts that Barack Obama actually has real blood relatives in Kenya. Why? Because Obama says so.
It doesn’t seem to occur to the scholar that one reason Barack Obama may be reluctant to help George Obama is because he’s not really his brother at all – that Obama’s life story is fraudulent from the get-go, little more than a fairy tale concocted to make the ambitious young politician more intriguing and perhaps less threatening than reality.
The fact of the matter is we know almost nothing about Obama’s real family history – certainly nothing that can be certifiably documented.
While I agree with D’Souza that Obama’s rhetoric about helping the poor and destitute doesn’t live up to his actions, doesn’t Obama’s unwillingness to lend a helping hand to his “brother” – even for the sake of upholding pretenses – suggest there could be more to the story than meets the eye?
What, for instance, did Obama do about checking on the welfare of his supposedly beloved Aunt Zeituni Onyango, one of the children of his alleged grandfather? Nothing. Barack Obama was too busy planning ways to change the country and save the planet to reach out to an elderly relative in obvious need living in a disabled-access apartment in a rundown public housing complex in South Boston.
Likewise, what did Obama do for his “Uncle Omar,” also described in his autobiography, when he was beaten by armed robbers with a sawed-off rifle while working in a corner shop in the Dorchester area of Boston who was later evicted from his one-bedroom apartment for failing to pay $2,324.20 in rent? Nothing. Again, he was too busy planning ways to change the country and save the planet – with your money, of course.
While it’s certainly true that Obama believes individual acts of charity could never measure up to the impact of collective and coercive programs of redistribution of wealth, his inactions in lifting a finger to help those he claims as kin are almost inexplicable – unless you at least entertain the possibility that they really aren’t.
Knowing all we know today about Obama’s uncanny lack of documentation, isn’t it time for smart fellows like Dinesh D’Souza to consider that his life story is simply made up – all part of a well-orchestrated charade that began many years ago when those who raised him, schooled him and instilled in him limitless political ambition created for him an identity to conceal something that would be just too threatening to the American people?
