The Roots of Obamas Rage
We are today living out the script for America and the world that was dreamt up not by Obama but by Obamas father. How do I know this? Because Obama says so himself. Reflect for a moment on the title of his book: its not Dreams of My Father but rather Dreams from My Father. In other words, Obama is not writing a book about his fathers dreams; he is writing a book about the dreams that he got from his father.
Think about what this means. The most powerful country in the world is being governed according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s—a polygamist who abandoned his wives, drank himself into stupors, and bounced around on two iron legs (after his real legs had to be amputated because of a car crash caused by his drunk driving). This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anti-colonial ambitions, is now setting the nations agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. The son is the one who is making it happen, but the son is, as he candidly admits, only living out his fathers dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is being governed by a ghost.

Dinesh DSouzas New York Times bestseller, The Roots of Obamas Rage, is now in paperback! Featuring a new introduction with fresh insight into President Obamas ideas and actions, The Roots of Obamas Rage is the first book to reveal what really motivates Obama and why he is a stranger to American ideals and principles.
The reason, explains DSouza, is anti-colonialism.
Through President Obamas own books and countless actions, Obama reveals that his true agenda is that of his father's. And his father's struggle was one of hatred towards the colonial system and the West in general. It is this inherited anticolonialist ideology and enmity for the United States that is fueling Obama to systematically destroy our nation's wealth, ambition, and leadership on the global stage.
"Stunning...the most profound insight I have read in the last six years about Barack Obama," said Newt Gingrich. No one has better diagnosed who Obama is, what he intends to do, and why he is the most dangerous man to ever become president than Dinesh D'Souza in The Roots of Obamas Rage.
