Subject: Say What, Barrack ?
By Paul R. Hollrah

Tuning in to C-Span recently, I found myself listening to a speech by
Senator Barrack Hussein Obama, Jr. He was standing in the pulpit of a
black church in Selma, Alabama, and as I studied the body language of the dozen
or so black ministers standing behind the senator, I couldn't help but be
reminded of the little head-bobbing dolls that people used to place in
the rear windows of their 1957 Chevrolets. If their reactions are any
indication, the new Schlickmeister of the Democrat Party is actually a
pretty accomplished public speaker.

However, as he spoke, I found my bull_ _ _ _ alarm going off, repeatedly.
But I couldn't quite figure out why until I actually read excerpts of his
speech several days later. Here's part of what he said:
"..something happened back here in Selma, Alabama. Something happened in
Birmingham that sent out what Bobby Kennedy called, "ripples of hope all
around the world." Something happened when a bunch of women decided they
were going to walk instead of ride the bus after a long day of doing
somebody else's laundry, looking after somebody else's children.

"When (black) men who had PhD's decided 'that's enough' and 'we're going
to stand up for our dignity,' that sent a shout across oceans so that my
grandfather began to imagine something different for his son. His son,
who grew up herding goats in a small village in Africa could suddenly set his
sights a little higher and believe that maybe a black man in this world
had a chance.

". So the Kennedy's decided we're going to do an air lift. We're going to
go to Africa and start bringing young Africans over to this country and give
them scholarships to study so they can learn what a wonderful country
America is.

"This young man named Barack Obama got one of those tickets and came over
to this country. He met this woman whose great great-great-great-grandfather
had owned slaves; but she had a good idea there was some craziness going
on because they looked at each other and they decided that we know that,
(in) the world as it has been, it might not be possible for us to get together
and have a child. There was something stirring across the country because
of what happened in Selma, Alabama, because some folks are willing to march
across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. Was born. So
don't tell me I don't have a claim on Selma, Alabama. Don't tell me I'm
not coming home to Selma, Alabama."

Okay, so what's wrong with that? It all sounds good. but is it?

Obama told his audience that, because some folks had the courage to
"march across a bridge" in Selma, Alabama, his mother, a white woman from
Kansas, and his father, a black Muslim from Africa, took heart. It gave them the
courage to get married and have a child. The problem with that
characterization is that Barrack Obama, Jr. Was born on August 4, 1961,
while the first of three marches across that bridge in Selma didn't occur
until March 7, 1965, at least five years after Obama's parents met.
Obama went on to tell his audience that the Kennedys, Jack and Bobby,
decided to do an airlift. They would bring some young Africans over so
that they could be educated and learn all about America. His grandfather heard
that call and sent his son, Barrack Obama, Sr., to America.
The problem with that scenario is that, having been born in August 1961,
the future senator was not conceived until sometime in November 1960. So, if
his African grandfather heard words that "sent a shout across oceans,"
inspiring him to send his goat-herder son to America, it was not Democrat Jack
Kennedy he heard, or his brother Bobby, it was Republican President Dwight D.

Obama's speech is reminiscent of Al Gore's claim of having invented the
Internet, Hillary Clinton's claim of having been named after the first
man to climb Mt. Everest. even though she was born five years and seven
months before Sir Edmund climbed the mountain, and John Kerry's imaginary trip
to Cambodia.

As one of my black friends, Eddie Huff, has said, "We need to ask some
very serious questions of the senator from Illinois. It's not enough to be
black, it's not enough to be articulate, and it's not enough to be eloquent and
a media darling. The only question will be how deaf an ear, or how blind an
eye, will people turn in order to turn a frog into a prince."

It appears that Senator Barrack Hussein Obama, Jr. is actually not a "fresh face,"
as media sycophants like to describe him, he's just another in a long line
of Democrat snake oil salesmen.

The race card shows up again and again because the "Blacks" use it to justify their actions time and again ... The longer an educated "Blackman" talks to a group of Bro's and Ho's the more they start to sound just like them and the "ebonics" kicks in, education be damned ... "What is that", becomes "What it is", hello (greeting) becomes "Whuz up" and so on so forth ... Having worked as Fire Fighter/Paramedic in the Ghetto I can honestly tell you it was an education in more ways than one ... He fell out was a common way of someone telling you that he passed out, fainted, and sometimes they really fell out, as like in tree or off of a ladder ... I miss that job, it was like an Amos and Andy skit just about everyday, except there was blood, guts and just about anything else you could think of in it also ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
