The Anti-Colonialist Colonialist

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Many of us, who bothered to really look at Barack Obama, the man, concluded early on that he is indeed an anti-colonialist. It’s easy to surmise this from his book, “Dreams From My Father,” and following Dinesh D’Souza’s research on him, as well as many others.Dreams

D’Souza explains that “Anti-colonialism is the idea that the rich countries got rich by looting the poor countries, and that within the rich countries, plutocratic and corporate elites continue to exploit ordinary citizens,” and “Barack Obama Sr. became an anti-colonialist as a consequence of growing up in Kenya during that country’s struggle for independence from European rule.”

After Kenya had achieved independence Obama Sr. “proposed that the state seize private land and turn it over to collective cooperatives. He also demanded that the state raise taxes with no upper limit.”

Does any of this sound familiar to how our president conducts himself?

And we all remember Obama’s “Apology Tour” in his first term.
