Another biography of Barack Obama is soon to be published. Many and various are the articles exposing some of the “bombshells” in the apparently semi-authorized book. (Obama sat for long but off-the-record interviews with the author.) If we look at some of what’s been revealed so far, it’s hard not to notice the hypocrisy of those who today excoriate President Donald Trump for being who he is while lionizing Barack Obama, despite who he is.
Consider the typical Obama-supporting liberal: someone who is most definitely pro-diversity, anti-bigotry, anti-racism, pro-LGBTQ+, and pro-feminism. Look at these new revelations through that liberal lens:
Obama coldly decided–after reveling in a multi-cultural, multi-racial, multi-national identity for most of his life–to embrace solely an African-American identity once he had decided to run for political office in Chicago. [The “resolution of his black identity was directly linked to his decision to pursue a political career.”]
Obama dropped his live-in girlfriend in the mid-1980s because he had decided upon a political career and because he determined that it would never fly among his African-American constituency for him to have a white-skinned wife. [“The lines are very clearly drawn. . . . If I am going out with a white woman, I have no standing here.”] Therefore, he left the “white woman” whom he loved–the woman to whom he had already twice proposed marriage–because her race stood between him and his destiny. (The woman is of Dutch and Japanese ancestry.)
Obama referred to his Occidental college friends and roommates collectively as “the Pakis” because they were from Pakistan. (Oddly, these friends all seem to have moved to New York at the same time as Obama.)
Obama “considered gayness” when calculating how he would express himself sexually. Ultimately, he somehow decided that being gay was less demanding than having heterosexual relationships. (Surely political calculation had nothing to do with his choice of pursuing the more-demanding heterosexuality.)
Before Obama decided that interracial dating would be frowned upon in his newly chosen African-American community in Chicago, he had up until then dated two wealthy white women; lived with another white woman whom he dumped but then continued to see on the side while dating the black woman whom he ultimately wed; and also apparently cheated upon both of those girlfriends with an allegedly divorced mother of three of Hispanic descent. While dating one white woman, he pointedly would not introduce her to his community-organizing associates because of her race.
Many years after his relationship with a wealthy white woman Obama had dated at Occidental, he bragged about his sexual conquest of the blond bombshell. [“The only woman he ever talked about screwing was some really hot blond chick that he was still proud of” … “He was really proud that he’d banged some super-hot blonde from a super-rich family.”]
So what can we deduce from these alternate facts about Obama?
Obama soundly rejected his white heritage. He was ashamed of being seen with white women, although he preferred to date them. He decided that he could not marry anyone but a black woman to achieve his “destiny.” He broke up with the “woman he loved” because she was not black. (Bigotry? Racism? Anti-diversity? Anti-multiculturalism? Divisive? Imagine if it were revealed that President Trump had refused to date non-white women or had actually dumped a woman he loved because she was black and wouldn’t be accepted in his circles.)
Obama used a racial slur against his own Pakistani friends. (Racism? Bigotry? Imagine if it were revealed that President Trump had ever used the epithet “Pakis.”)
Obama “considered gayness,” as if being gay is a lifestyle choice. (Isn’t it a tenet of liberalism that being gay is not a choice but denotes a special class of being that therefore deserves special protection because it’s inborn? Imagine if it were revealed that President Trump suggested that being gay is a choice. Only yesterday one of President Trump’s nominees withdrew his name from consideration simply because he once stated the obvious–that in medical circles gender dysphoria (transgenderism) is categorized as a mental disorder.)
Obama boasted about his sexual conquest of a rich, blond woman. His friends used crude words to describe this relationship–he was banging or screwing this really hot, rich chick. Obama was proud that he had scored where others couldn’t. (Objectification of women? Engaging in locker-room banter, at “regular poker games,” no less! Anti-feminist? Sexist? We already know the reaction of the liberal world to the revelation that President Trump once said that because of his wealth, women literally throw themselves at him. He described in crude terms what they would allow him to do, if he so desired (“grab them” by the genitals). Now we have multiple friends of Obama’s saying that he bragged often about having “banged” a rich white woman. Is this any less crude or distasteful or degrading to women than what Trump said? Is it any less sexist? Add to that the element of racism, which isn’t there in the allegations against Trump, and Obama’s braggadocio is arguably worse.)
Finally, we learn that while dating his future wife, Obama cheated on her with his former live-in girlfriend, whom he dumped for being white, and then he cheated on both of those women with a fellow community activist! (We have already heard and read many times what a womanizer and a cheat President Trump has allegedly been. When the shoe is on the other foot, can we expect similar moralizing about Obama’s cheating ways?)
Hypocrisy, pure and simple! Will Obama remain the darling of the left if the revelations made in this new book are fully reported?
There was another revelation made, something that’s probably of very little import to liberals: Obama used cocaine well into his twenties, something which he previously claimed to have left behind in his teens. He also smoked pot in his twenties, maybe beyond.
The thing is, Obama has said many things that have turned out to be flat-out untrue. What else has he lied about for political reasons, after coldly calculating what would best help him achieve his “destiny?” He chose his black identity. He rejected his white girlfriends and chose a black wife (black skin–the #1 qualification), and he also chose heterosexuality, rejecting gayness (at least on the surface). He adamantly denied ever having been Muslim, despite the evidence of his school records in Indonesia. (He also disavowed his former name–Barry Soetoro.)
All of these choices he made for political reasons. Could Obama have fulfilled his “destiny” had he told the truth about his origins? Is it any wonder that his autobiography is full of false narratives and that he still won’t disclose his original, 3-dimensional, authenticated paper birth certificate?
Will we ever know the truth and nothing but the truth about Barack Hussein Obama?
