Hussein Onyango Obama, a British soldier in the second world war, was locked up as a Mau Mau rebel in Kenya
The past usually finds a way of catching up with us. Could Britain's colonial sins pose a risk to our relationship with the soon-to-be most powerful person on Earth?
According to the Times, Barack Obama's grandfather was imprisoned and tortured by the British during Kenya's Mau Mau uprising.

Uh, huh....But we can’t find Obama’s birth certificate.
The idiot commentors are comparing the torture and whipping every morning in Kenya to Gitmo. Great.
a) Jesse Jackson, or
b) Al Sharpton
Take it to the Queen!\\Reparations for Kenya!!!( sarc.)
“...soon-to-be most powerful person on Earth”
OK. Seeing those words & realizing they are referring to Barack Obama is...horrifying.
No kidding. Horrifying.
ahhh the good old days insurgents were punished properly.
The Left constantly out-plans us and out-clevers us. They remain true to their long-range goals, and they never quit.
We can't even get all the Republican voters to show up for a presidential election.
“We need AMERICANS running America.”
I agree. So here’s what I propose:
1. We need American voters to show up on election day and vote against the Anti-Americans (even if the pro-America candidate has flaws)
2. We need American prosecutors and American law enforcement to stop vote fraud.
How do we know who Obomba’s father was?
The other problem is that most Republicans are interested in successful careers that don’t including elective office.
The Democrats have a larger pool of candidates-those who believe that government at all levels, especially, the national level, can solve all of the problems of the world.
So, Barack Obama is radical chic and his grandfather was Mau Mau and a flak catcher?
Obama’s father abandoned him when he was an infant. What makes the treatment of his grandfather relevant? I guess since he doesn’t have slave blood, Obama must show somehow that he is down with the struggle. Roots II.
“The Democrats have a larger pool of candidates-those who believe that government at all levels, especially, the national level, can solve all of the problems of the world.”
I’m not so sure I can agree with you there. From what I’ve seen the Dems are simply more interested in lifetime employment for them and their ilk, with huge pensions and priviledges. For them the “problems of the world” are just a vehicle to get the voters attention.
Could Britain’s colonial sins pose a risk to our relationship with the soon-to-be most powerful person on Earth?
Think of it....
If the Brits had executed the Mau Mau black terrorist - our Obama would never have been born...
Once again, the Brits blow it.
Uh.....I don't believe we had a Republican Candidate for President.... We had an "Obama light" in white face on the ticket.
Sarah simply wasn't sweet enough to cover the stink rising from McCain...
