From the Inside Flap
YOU WILL NEVER SEE OBAMA THE SAME WAY AGAIN
He’s been called many things: a socialist, a radical fellow traveler, a Chicago machine politician, a prince of the civil rights movement, a virtual second coming of Christ, or even a covert Muslim.
But as New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza points out in this shockingly revealing book, these labels merely slap our own preconceived notions on Barack Obama.
The real Obama is a man shaped by experiences far different from those of most Americans; he is a much stranger, more determined, and exponentially more dangerous man than you’d ever imagined. He is not motivated by the civil rights struggles of African Americans in the 1960sthose battles leave him wholly untouched. He is not motivated by the socialist or Marxist propaganda that hypnotized a whole generation of woolyminded academics and condescending liberalsthose concepts also leave him cold.
What really motivates Barack Obama is an inherited ragean often masked, but profound rage that comes from his African father; an anticolonialist rage against Western dominance, and most especially against the wealth and power of the very nation Barack Obama now leads. It is this rage that explains the previously inexplicable, and that gives us a startling look at what might lie ahead.
In The Roots of Obama’s Rage you’ll learn: Why Obama’s economic policies are actually designed to make America poorer compared to the rest of the world Why Obama will welcome a nuclear Iran Why Obama sees America as a rogue nationworse than North Korea The real reason Obama banished a bust of Winston Churchill from the White House and ordered NASA to praise the scientific contributions of Muslims Why Obama would like to make America’s superpower status a thing of the past
Stunning, provocative, original, and tellingno one has better diagnosed who Obama is, what he intends to do, and why he poses an existential threat to America than Dinesh D’Souza in The Roots of Obama’s Rage.
From the Back Cover
From THE ROOTS OF OBAMA’S RAGE
We are today living out the script for America and the world that was dreamt up not by Obama but by Obama’s father. How do I know this? Because Obama says so himself. Reflect for a moment on the title of his book: it’s not Dreams of My Father but rather Dreams from My Father. In other words, Obama is not writing a book about his father’s 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 1950sa 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 nation’s 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 father’s dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is being governed by a ghost.

After the publication of the article, the White House spokesman Robert Gibbs was sent to contact the magazine editor, and in passing derided the magazine, saying: "It's a stunning thing, to see a publication you would see in a dentist's office, so lacking in truth and fact."
D'Souza claims to be a lot like Obama: both with cosmopolitan backgrounds, with roots in former colonized countries, nonwhite, influenced by mixed marriages, born the same year, attended Ivy League colleges and graduating the same year.
What seemed to inspire the author to write this book was an article he read back in 2008, in the London Telegraph titled "Barack Obama's Lost Brother Found in Kenya". The 26 year old George Hussein Obama was found living in a Nairobi slum. "I live here on less than a dollar a month." George said. Humiliated by his poverty, he confessed he never mentioned the famous half-brother. The two Obamas met briefly in 2006 when Barack was a senator, but the two didn't connect. D'Souza was shocked that the Senator, with a net worth in the millions of dollars did not lift a finger to help a destitute close relative. George wanted to be a mechanic, and D'Souza raised a couple thousand dollars to help George move out of his hut. By then D'Souza believes the Obama's presidential campaign caught up with the guy, and George was apparently told to go into hiding.
D'Souza believes that since childhood, Obama's dream was always to become an anti-colonial warrior. And also that his father's dream became his own.Read more ›
D'Souza contends that the underlying philosophy of America's first black president is anti-colonialism; that is to say, the author claims that Obama is against any remnant of the colonialist era, which, unfortunately, includes a significant part of American history.
So, D'Souza contends, Obama is in the process of revolutionizing America's stance on a wide variety of key issues, including a ban on imperialistic wars waged by a rogue military; changing America's free enterprise, capitalistic economy into a socialized economy that is regulated by the federal government: turning America's private health care system into a single payer (socialist) medical system, and turning America into the greenest nation on earth. The net effect of all these major changes in American policies will be to redistribute America's wealth to less developed parts of the world.
Obama, according to D'Souza, is in the process of trying to completely reverse 300 years of American history, turning the country into a low profile, socialized nation is nested quiescently in the family of nations around the world. No more superpower pretensions on Obama's watch.
D'Souza is of Indian descent, and he claims that he has the racial and ethnic credentials to challenge Obama. He has organized and formatted his book in a highly logical, though sometimes fanciful, cocky style. As he warns his readers in an early chapter:

I have never read anything more interesting or thought provoking about President Obama. Whether or not you agree with Dinesh, it is hard to dismiss his theory as unrealistic or impossible. Dinesh uses Obama's own words, personal history and actions to compile his theory. I can't say for certain whether the premise of the book is accurate or not. What I can say is that the book itself is an interesting, eye opening trip into Obama's past and a logically coherent glance into this country's future.
Before you mindless drone on about how the book is inaccurate or personally attack Dinesh, try reading it first.
