KOWTOWING INDIANS

A volunteer group in San Marcos, Texas has set up scholarships for a group of students they think is underrepresented: white men.

A student formed the “Former Majority Association for Equality” to organize the scholarships. Colby Bohannan — a senior at Texas State University in San Marcos and the group’s president — told the Austin American-Statesman the lack of white-only scholarships made him feel ”excluded.”

It was Huckabee’s foray into Obama’s alleged childhood in Kenya — of course he never visited Kenya as a child, though he spent four years in Indonesia — that got him in some trouble for the Malzberg conversation. Some trouble, but not much; in fact, two journalists I respect, Dave Weigel and Ben Smith, have actually tried to defend Huckabee’s distorting Obama’s childhood history, arguing that the friendly Republican was actually fighting birtherism and trying to get at some actual truth about the president’s personal and political background, even if he got his facts wrong

I would love to know more. What I know is troubling enough. And one thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, very different than the average American. When he gave the back the … bust of Winston Churchill, a great insult to the British. But then if you think about it, his perspective as growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather, their view of the Mau Mau Revolution in Kenya is very different than ours because he probably grew up hearing that the British were a bunch of imperialists who persecuted his grandfather. http://www.salon.com/news/opinion/joan_walsh/

Huckabee’s claim that the president spent his childhood in Kenya is, of course, factually wrong, but he’s not the first to try to paint Obama as anti-American because of the views of his Kenyan father. In his crackpot book “The Roots of Obama’s Rage,” Dinesh D’Souza made the same case — that Obama harbored an anti-colonial, and therefore anti-white, animus because of his father’s support for Kenyan independence — while leaving out Huckabee’s fiction that Obama actually lived there. Back in September, Newt Gingrich called D’Souza’s book “brilliant.”

This is all old news now, but I am older and not newer anyway, so here goes.

First we must address the personage of Dinesh d’Souza.

Why do members of minority groups, join up with white supremacists? Well I propose this strange phenomena has something to do with money.  Here is a quote from Wiki:

In his book The End of Racism he asserted that the “American slave was treated like property, which is to say, pretty well.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinesh_D%27Souza

Even Justice Thomas would not abide that quote.

So we have an Indian/naturalized/ American racist. I suppose that helps the white supremacists because they can point to the fact that they have this idiot listed on their letter heads.

D’Souza was born in India. So at least we do not have to worry about him running for President.

He comes here and becomes a naturalized citizen and spouts Roman Catholic Doctrine along with some sort of fundamentalism which is not necessarily Roman Catholic Doctrine.

It was this idiot who debated Hitchens and came up with the extraordinary ruse that we really have no idea what the speed of light is.

I don’t care if they tested the speed of light a million times, inductive experimentation proves nothing.

You see if the narrow range for the speed of light—depending upon the environs the light finds itself in—is not debatable, then the fundamentalist/literalist/moronic theories concerning the age of the earth and the reality of a Fred Flinstone existence fall flat. I mean how can we see the light from galaxies that was generated billions of years ago and still maintain a literal interpretation of the bible?

I must have published five blogs on this subject and I still cannot get it out of my system.

This quote is from memory. I watched the debate with Hitchens on C-Span several times and his argument—if you can call this anti-science argument—reverberated in my head for months.

The Jesuits over the last couple of centuries have kind of assumed the burden of knowledge for the Church and if you read a Roman Catholic Bible you will note that the official position of the Vatican is that a literal interpretation of the Old Testament—especially Genesis—is ridiculous. The Catholic Scholars take pains to point out four different oral traditions from which Genesis arose and no scholar from the Pope’s enclave would ever propose that the earth is six thousand years old or that God stood on the earth and tossed the moon, the sun and the stars into the ether.

Dinesh writes this drivel for the fundamentalist Catholics (?) and makes millions.

He is of course a full-fledged member of the American Enterprise Institute, which says a lot about that corporate fascist propaganda group.

But now Dinesh steps out of his role as some Swami Pat Robertson and decides he is the Unofficial Biographer of the President; and has reaped millions on the newer myths.

Newt picks it up and lauds Dinesh’s garbage and suddenly Huckabee has picked up on it and instead of pointing to Obama’s father, skips a generation and has our President growing up in Kenya.

CNN and MSNBC have torn the Huckster a new one for repeating this lie without even crediting the Indian-Naturalized American for coming up with it in the first place. http://johnkingusa.blogs.cnn.com/2011/03/04/huckabees-surprising-misstatement/ and

http://www.mediaite.com/tv/chris-matthews-on-mike-huckabee-do-you-think-hes-lost-it/

Now if you recall, the king of the Swift Boaters tried to come up with his own take on the Kenyan birth myth but his book fell flat. Some repub groups preordered a bunch of his books and they were not saleable. I think they ended up as toilet paper at GTMO, but who the hell knows or cares?

I am referring to Jim the swift boater Corsi, of course. http://www.alternet.org/blogs/video/101979/jerome_%27swift_boat%27_corsi_taken_to_task,_arrested_in_kenya/

Think Progress and The Daily Beast and Huffpo and Salon and a host of other links have beaten this Kenyan horse to death, of course; as well they should.

I just watched a clip from O’Reilly interviewing the Huckster and letting him explain how he got Indonesia mixed up with Kenya but he still could not explain what the hell Churchill had to do with Indonesia.

I have one conclusion to all this hoopla in addition to linking this all to the Trashmen.

There are millions of peeps in this country who do not like the fact that there is a N&^%$&R in the White House!!!

And Newt and the Huckster and others want their vote!!!

  1. Brought up in Kenya, he was! LOL, half the Republicans I know can’t even place Kenya on a farkin map.

    Ask Sarah Palin what “country” Africa is, hahaha.

  2. A lot of backslappin’ going on between this bunch Dick. Together they built a house and now are standing back admiring it and saying what a fine job we did. Yesiree.

    And everybody driving by says look at the cute house those guys built.

    But then when you walk around back there ain’t no back. Only a facade to fool all the friggin morons driving by. Who aren’t much interested in taking a closer look. Because they trust the backslappers. And mostly these trusting souls talk with a twang and decorate their front yard with four wrecked cars and haven’t the slightest where the hell the dam lawnmower is. The kind of salt of the earth folks one might call easy pickins’. And woe is me for talking like this after having lived in Mississippi, North Carolina, Florida and Arizona (twice!). A born and raised yank with a huge helpin’ a good ol’ boy heaped on top. What a friggin’ mess. Sure as hell lighting is going to strike me dead. Dam right. 😀

    p.s.
    I got a call a couple weeks back. One of the guys, red necks all, most of who worked for me once upon a time, telling me I better get my sorry ass up to the Maine woods this summer for a get down reunion of sorts. You just know that’ll be a hell of a time with a lot of grinnin’ and a whole lot of drinkin’. And some tall story tellin’. Sure as hell they’ll be ridin’ my ass just like I ever rode theirs. It was a little strange a yank riding herd on a bunch of rednecks. Wingers to a man. And I loved every one of them. Course I never told them that. To them I was for sure the meanest sob that ever lived. And I was. Back then. I hope the hell I can survive this.

    1. These are the best comments I have received in a long time.
      But this metaphor is one of the best I have read anywhere.

      Damn!! Four wrecked cars in the front yard. hahaha

      We gotta do something with this!!

    Perhaps Mr. D’Souza identifies with white supremacists because he believes he is of an elevated social stature, as in the same fashion of the white supremacists. After all, he was born in India, where the Caste system is alive and functioning. Depending on which caste he is/was a member of, he may well believe he’s better than the rest of us beige colored people.

    Even the Christians in India adhere to a caste system.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caste_system_among_Indian_Christians
    Boy, is he in for a shock when they kick him out of their tent after they’re done with him.

    1. I think that’s pretty much the way this works flower. It’s the whole enchilada, not a smorgasboard. You don’t get to hold your nose if some of it doesn’t smell right. We’ve been trying the smorgasboard thingy here in the U.S. ever since day one with mixed success. Our collective social unit looks like one of your patients with more than a mild case of bipolar disorder.

    2. You have a real point here, of course you always do Flower.

      But talk about caste and Churchill for chrissakes!!

      That is the key.

      Dinesh just does not understand that the teapartiers would see him as an entertaining monkey. hahahaha
