Obama and White People: Where History Gets Weird

By Mark Butterworth at American Thinker

So here we have Barack — raised by whites, protected and privileged by whites, guided by whites, funded by whites, managed by whites, and finally, elected by whites. And someone who has turned all his inner rage into a diatribe against the society of whites and its free markets, liberties, government, culture, traditions, and beliefs.

And we have Michelle, affirmed by whites, promoted by whites, enriched by whites, and angry that all her success came, not from her own community, but as spoils from condescending whites, liberal guilt and noblesse oblige to less brilliant “coloreds” such as herself.

James Lewis noted in 2008: ". . . Barack and Michelle seem to suffer from real feelings of inferiority. Michelle is a Princess of Privilege -- Princeton University, Harvard Law School and her 300K job today. And yet, she tells us that she spent years feeling bad about being black in America, as she told the world in her undergraduate thesis, at the very time when blacks are moving ahead faster than ever before in human history."

Think of what they owe Bill Ayers and the trust they’ve placed in him. He could spill the beans of what he’s done for them at any time, but he won’t. Obama is his Manchurian Candidate, his Trojan horse, his Quisling for Marxism and the ruin of white America.

But Obama can’t destroy America anymore than Wilson, FDR, Jimmy Carter could. He can damage it, but never transform it, which means Obama fails, retires to private life like Jimmy Carter. He can certainly enrich himself as an ex-President as Bill Clinton has done, but underneath it all there lingers the sub-conscious knowledge for he and Michelle that it all began with a lie, unearned wealth, and white privilege.

This is history being weird.
