Damning Quotes from Obama

By Ted Belman

Someone asked me if I confirmed the Obama’s quote in The Audacity of Hope,

    “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

So I began to look for confirmation. I did some googling and came up with the following that predated my disclosure and painted an even worse picture if that’s possible. This post predates mine.

Do not accept these quotes until they can be confirmed.

Why I wont vote for Obama and I am from Illinois

In Obama’s book, DREAMS OF MY FATHER..and THE AUDACITY Of HOPE

In Obama’s book THE AUDACITY Of HOPE

    * He wrote “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

In Obama’s book, DREAMS OF MY FATHER..

    * “I FOUND A SOLACE IN NURSING A PERVASIVE SENSE OF GRIEVANCE AND ANIMOSITY AGAINST MY MOTHER’S RACE”

    * “I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites”

    * “That hate hadn’t gone away,” he wrote, blaming “white people — some cruel, some ignorant, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives.”

However, while campaigning in Kansas, Obama frequently emphasized that his mother was white, and that he had grown up in a predominantly white world.

    * (Obama) vowed that he would “never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa, that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.”

    * “I was trying to raise myself to be a black man in America, and beyond the given of my appearance, no one around me seemed to know exactly what that meant.” Honolulu’s paucity of African-Americans meant he had to learn to be black from the media: “TV, movies, the radio; those were places to start. Pop culture was color-coded, after all, an arcade of images from which you could cop a walk, a talk, a step, a style.”

    * About student life and race at Occidental College Obama wrote “There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs,” he wrote. “It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.” He added: “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.”

    * While in college, Obama wrote(he) disapproved of what he called other “half-breeds” who gravitated toward whites instead of blacks.

Again, from Colonel Ray

    “And after college, he once fell in love with a white woman, only to push her away when he concluded he would have to assimilate into her world, not the other way around. He later married a black woman.”

    * After making his first visit to Kenya, Obama wrote of being disappointed to learn that his paternal grandfather had been a servant to rich whites. The revelation caused “ugly words to flash across my mind. Uncle Tom. Collaborator. House *igger.

Some tough words for someone who wants to embrase us all.

It seems to indicate that Obama’s choice of Church and it liberation theology reflect these views or vice versa.

  1. $8.22, Amazon price to buy Audacity of Hope and find out for oneself – no page # citation, the out-of-context, if-said-at-all quote means nothing to me more than a suggestion to check out the book for myself. As for the Dreams of My Father quotes, the title alone suggests the book is about Obama coming to terms with identity and race, so for all I know the quotes merely stages Obama internally went through before reaching perhaps another outlook on things.

  2. Another thought, even if worst case scenario were true and Obama was sympathetic to Islam (even if only because of naive ignorance to it’s nature), pointing this out even if there’s overwhelming proof of it could still backfire unless first the public is educated first, first, first to apprehend that Islam is inseparably fused with a political system, that Islam is political. If this is not recognized by the public first, then any “standing with Muslims” by Obama will not be viewed as a societal/political threat or bad thing, but rather as someone defending religious persecution. Therefore, before those of us aware of the dangers of Islam expose any Obama Islam ties, we must first expose the nature of Islam–that Islam is a political ideology, that “Islam is Terrorism”–intellectual terrorism (to use the expression of Qaradawi), economic terrorism, and physical terrorism. Expose Islam first, expose Obama second.

  3. “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” and “I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race”

    These are very chilling quotes.

    I am grateful to those who are digging up the true picture of BO but I am really disappointed that the truth has emerged so late into the campaign and that the mainstream media still refuses to ask the hard questions.

    Why are the American people allowing themselves to be duped?

  4. That’s it, I’m going out to find these books because of all this nonsense–Gary, we still don’t have a page # or context for the first quote, and the second quote clearly is in the past tense indicating that perhaps any race issues Obama might have had were something he worked through. We just don’t know much based on these quotes. On the other hand, we do have YouTube videos of Obama’s pastor for 20 years saying rather shocking things–one of them just is an audio that purports to be Obama’s ex-pastor, but others actually show Jeremiah Wright actually talking, own lips moving, so that’s kind of hard to deny. Even worse, we have Obama himself saying shocking things in video. We all–myself included–need to be careful not to misrepresent Obama or we’ll come off sounding like like racists ourselves and be linked to kooks like the racist who adopted a Hebrew name and in another Israpundit thread who said we “…Obama isn’t fit to be president in any manner, shape or form, due to his race and his religion…” Then there’s in the same thing the kook talking about Africans and their diamonds helping Jews…is this for real or a plant trying to make Israpundit look bad? It’s all getting ridiculous.

  5. Obama isn’t fit to be president in any manner, shape or form, due to his race and his religion…”

    I don’t think his race matters. However if he is indeed muslim or has been influenced by islamic teachings, then that does matter since islam is incompatible with American values.

  6. The link to those posts does not seem to be active any more. I’m wondering if these are really accurate. I don’t like Obama but I want quotes to be accurate. It would be nice to have a page number for the first quote, if it is accurate. Anybody???

  7. You don’t even have to go out and buy his book to guage his character. Though I am tempted to go on Amazon and do so.

    Anyone can check out his Selma Speech it is on Youtube,

    In it he says he can claim the legacy of the Civil Rights movement because his being born was a result of the March on Selma, his parents met during it.

    Only one little nagging problem for me with that story.

    The March on Selma was in 1965 and

    Barrack Obama was born in 1961

    I wonder what else he has been lying to us about?

  8. When speaking of their childhood, liberals seem untouched in their ability to fabricate grandiose statements concerning their thoughts during this time. Is the reason they create these always unsubstantiated childhood philosophical points of view now because they still feel as inadequate and shallow as Conservatives see them to be?

  9. Always read for yourself. “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction” would be scary…if Sen Obama actually wrote that. He never even used the word “muslim.” This “quote” is the kind of lie that had people believing John McCain had a daugther by a black prostitute in 2000 when he was defeated by George W. Bush (google it, people). It preys on the basest aspect of our nature – fear.

    Sen. Obama’s wrote to caution against the type of climate that was pervasive after 9-11. The was an undercurrent of mistrust that caused Americans of Arab heritage to be attacked and harassed unfairly. He likened it to the treatment of Japanese Americans who were imprisoned when the U.S. entered WW-II (again google it)

    He wrote on page 261 of The Audacity of Hope

    “In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly: they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during WWII, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

    Inform yourself and then judge. God Bless.
    “He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.” – Thomas Jefferson

  10. I really do appreciate the correction.I see he meant Arab and Pakistani Americans rather than Muslims. Same thing but more accurate. So long as their religion calls for Jihad, I will be suspicious of them. As long as they place Sharia above US law and values I will be suspicious of them.

    If they don’t want to be placed under this cloud, they should clean house.

  11. Just a heads-up to Dan Kauffman:

    I’m no Obama supporter (he’s a race-baiting black supremacist with a flatly liberal stance on every issue, beyond the pale of liberalism itself) but regarding the Selma speech, he didn’t actually say (at least, not according to the transcript on his website; going to listen to the video and confirm) that his parents MET at the march. He said they met, via whatever justification he claims, BECAUSE of the march. Now, what this means is a good question. I have an Irish-Indian (dot, not feather) parentage; this doesn’t make Ireland my literal home, since I was born in America, except in some spiritual sense, and the legacy of the Selma march was not that of Malcolm X or Louis Farrakhan, but that of Martin Luther King Jr., who would not be of the same opinion as Obama about the actual state of black people in America. So while he might be right that his parents met BECAUSE of the march, that means nothing about Selma as his “home.”
