Barack Obama Seeks to Turn America into a Third World Country (RUSH)
Rush Limbaugh ^ | June 26, 2009 | Rush Limbaugh

RUSH: "Obama, the African Colonial" This is by L.E. Ikenga. This is LE Ikenga. She is a first-generation American, and she absorbed the African culture from her parents.  This is a special piece, and I'm going to read most of it to you here. It's at the "Had Americans been able to stop obsessing over the color of Barack Obama's skin and instead paid more attention to his cultural identity, maybe he would not be in the White House today. The key to understanding him lies with his identification with his father, and his adoption of a cultural and political mindset rooted in postcolonial Africa.  Like many educated intellectuals in postcolonial Africa, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. was enraged at the transformation of his native land by its colonial conqueror," the UK, and that means that Barack Obama, Jr. is likewise enraged and we see it in the way he frequently disrespects the UK.

"But instead of embracing the traditional values of his own tribal cultural past, he embraced an imported Western ideology, Marxism. I call such frustrated and angry modern Africans who embrace various foreign 'isms', instead of looking homeward for repair of societies that are broken, African Colonials. They are Africans who serve foreign ideas."  May I translate this for you? This is L.E. Ikenga, a first-generation American, but she absorbed the African culture from her parents.  The Brits go in and colonize Africa. Africans get enraged about it in trying to resist it, and then when the Brits leave, rather than trying to reform their country back to their own cultural roots, people like Barack Obama, Sr. turn to Marxism rather than their own roots to rebuild nations that were once colonized by the UK.  

This is how we get Nigeria. This is how we get Mugabe and Zimbabwe (which used to be Rhodesia), and this is what Barack Obama, Sr. became: an African colonial. "Before I continue," she writes, "I need to say this: I am a first generation born West African-American woman whose parents emigrated to the US in the 1970's from the country now called Nigeria. I travel to Nigeria frequently. I see myself as both a proud American and as a proud Igbo ... Politically, I have always been conservative (though it took this past election for me to commit to this once and for all!); my conservative values come from my Igbo heritage and my place of birth. Of course, none of this qualifies me to say what I am about to -- but at the same time it does.  

My friends, despite what CNN and the rest are telling you, Barack Obama is nothing more than an old school African Colonial who is on his way to turning this country into one of the developing nations that you learn about on the National Geographic Channel," meaning he wants to turn this into a Third World country.  And when you look at cap and trade, when you look at the stimulus, when you look at the healthcare proposals he's got, I mean the only way to turn this into a Third World nation -- if that's possible, but the only way to try to do it, the only way to try to do this -- is to just attack the private sector and deplete it of its resources, of its money and capital, which is exactly what he's doing.  

"Many conservative (East, West, South, North) African-Americans like myself -- those of us who know our history -- have seen this movie before. Here are two main reasons why many Americans allowed Obama to slip through the cracks despite all of his glaring inconsistencies:  First, Obama has been living on American soil for most of his adult life. Therefore, he has been able to masquerade as one who understands and believes in American democratic ideals. But he does not. Barack Obama is intrinsically undemocratic and as his presidency plays out, this will become more obvious." Well, it's already obvious to us. All these czars that have no accountability to legislative forces? They are not approved by Congress like cabinet secretaries are.  He's announced 13 or 14 czars.  He's running the car companies. He's running the mortgage and banking business.  He's done this without the process of Democratic legislation.  

He's just declared it fiat, and his party is in power in the House so they're letting him do this.  "Second, and most importantly," she writes, "too many Americans know very little about Africa. The one-size-fits-all understanding that many Americans (both black and white) continue to have of Africa might end up bringing dire consequences for this country.  Contrary to the way it continues to be portrayed in mainstream Western culture, Africa is not a continent that can be solely defined by AIDS, ethnic rivalries, poverty and safaris. Africa, like any other continent, has an immense history defined by much diversity and complexity. Africa's long-standing relationship with Europe speaks especially to some of these complexities -- particularly the relationship that has existed between the two continents over the past two centuries. Europe's complete colonization of Africa during the nineteenth century, also known as the Scramble for Africa, produced many unfortunate consequences, the African colonial being one of them."  


RUSH:  I want to continue reading here from L.E. Ikenga: "Obama, the African Colonial," from the  "The African colonial (AC) is a person who by means of their birth or lineage has a direct connection with Africa. However, unlike Africans like me, their worldviews have been largely shaped not by the indigenous beliefs of a specific African tribe but by the ideals of the European imperialism that overwhelmed and dominated Africa during the colonial period. AC's have no real regard for their specific African traditions or histories.  AC's use aspects of their African culture as one would use pieces of costume jewelry: things of little or no value that can be thoughtlessly discarded when they become a negative distraction, or used on a whim to decorate oneself in order to seem exotic. (Hint: Obama's Muslim heritage)," is one of these examples.  

"On the other hand, AC's strive to be the best at the culture that they inherited from Europe. Throughout the West, they are tops in their professions as lawyers, doctors, engineers, Ivy League professors and business moguls; this is all well and good. It's when they decide to engage us as politicians that things become messy and convoluted. The African colonial politician (ACP) feigns repulsion towards the hegemonic paradigms of Western civilization. But at the same time, he is completely enamored of the trappings of its aristocracy or elite culture." She's pegging Obama here, just pegging him.  He's totally caught up in the trappings of aristocracy or elite culture, taking the plane up to New York, flying the kids over to Paris.  This is the stuff about the job he loves, he's enamored of it.

"The ACP blames and caricatures whitey to no end for all that has gone wrong in the world. He convinces the masses that various forms of African socialism are the best way for redressing the problems that European colonialism motivated in Africa. However, as opposed to really being a hard-core African Leftist who actually believes in something, the ACP uses socialist themes as a way to disguise his true ambitions: a complete power grab whereby the 'will of the people' becomes completely irrelevant. Barack Obama is all of the above. The only difference is that he is here playing (colonial) African politics as usual.  In his 1995 memoir, Dreams From My Father -- an eloquent piece of political propaganda -- Obama styles himself as a misunderstood intellectual who is deeply affected by the sufferings of black people, especially in America and Africa. In the book, Obama clearly sees himself as an African, not as a black American. And to prove this, he goes on a quest to understand his Kenyan roots. He is extremely thoughtful of his deceased father's legacy; this provides the main clue for understanding Barack Obama.

"Here are a few examples of what the British did in order to create (in 1914) what is now called Nigeria and what Obama is doing to you:  One: Convince the people that 'clinging' to any aspect of their cultural (tribal) identity or history is bad and regresses the process of 'unity.' Two: Confiscate the wealth and resources of the area that you govern by any means necessary in order to redistribute wealth. Three:  Convince the masses that your upper-crust university education naturally puts you on an intellectual plane from which to understand everything even when you understand nothing."  Pegs Obama to a T.  "Four: Lie to the people and tell them that progress is being made even though things are clearly becoming worse."  Pegs Obama to a T.  This woman from Africa, first-generation American, identifying what an African colonial is: the despot leaders that take over these countries and how they do it.  And she's defining Barack Obama.  Lie to the people.  Tell them that progress is being made even though things are clearly becoming worse.  

"Five: Use every available media outlet to perpetuate the belief that you and your followers are the enlightened ones and that those who refuse to support you are just barbaric, uncivilized, ignorant curmudgeons." Well, that speaks for itself, too.  She concludes: "America, don't be fooled. The Igbos were once made up of a confederacy of clans that ascribed to various forms of democratic government. They took their eyes off the ball and before they knew it, the British were upon them. Also, understand this: the African colonial who is given too much political power can only become one thing: a despot."

I share all this with you because she's nailed who the guy is.  Americans look at Obama, first black president, and they go, "Oh we're shedding some of our guilt here.  Look at how enlightened we are, what a great country we are," when in fact we've elected somebody who is more African in his roots than he is American.  Loves his father who was a Marxist, and is behaving like an African colonial despot and you can see it in his healthcare legislation, the stimulus bill, taking over automobile companies, the czars that he has that are not accountable to anybody but him and now the climate bill.  All of this is about nothing other than the acquisition of power and the ability to further regulate your privacy and behavior.

Poor Republican Candidate-McCain not Palin
White Liberal Guilt
Soros et. al with unlimited funds
A Republican Party and President that allowed the Democrats to set the agenda after 2006 and refused to fight back-only now is Cheney defending the past 8 years

Interesting article and spot-on.

It does make me wonder though - if Colonialism is the reason for modern Marxism in Africa, then how does that explain Ethiopia? Ethiopia remained independent and is a Commie hellhole...

I saw one scary bumper sticker yesterday. “OBAMA” in caps and large font. Underneath: “I hoped. I voted. I believe.”

A Terrifying ,On Target Analysis of the KENYAN VILLAGE IDIOT now acting as The Wrecker In Chief of The United States! Its noteable that Rush is singlehandedly digging out this perverse and disgusting information on the TOTUS and the Republican Party is illuminating and finding nothing about this Pandora’s Box from SATAN with their Millions and Millions of Resource Dollars and thousands of Steele’s family working for the “Party!”
Congratulations to John Boehner for his Excellent Expose of the “CAP and RAPE of AMERICA by The RATS” Bill today!! and if four Republican Traitors and Worms had Voted for Against IT today, it would have gone down to total Defeat:-)
OBAMA better be feeeling pretty sick after the farce we experienced today:-)Waxman and Piglousy were disgusting.

I would add a population that has been so poorly educated that they will believe anything without question.

Good. There may not be much more time to speak out. If the Fairness Doctrine (or something like it) gets approved, we can say good-bye to free speech.
