Barack Obama in yesterday’s speech: A More Perfect Union throws his grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, under the bus by discussing her racism
I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother â€“ a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.
These people are a part of me. And they are a part of America, this country that I love.
Flap remarked that Obama threw his grandmother “under the bus” in comparing her own racist views to those of Jeremiah Wright instead of throwing Jeremiah Wright “under the bus” for his anti-American and anti-white statements.
This was reprehensible and particularly so under further examination of Obama’s grandmother and her role in raising her grandson.
Stanley Dunham, “Barry” Obama and grandmother Madelyn Dunham
Flap wasn’t the ONLY blogger noting Obama’s objectionable family criticism in order to justify an association with Jeremiah Wright and the “BLACK” community.
Scott Johnson twice at Power Line:
Yesterday I referred to the false equivalencies in Obama’s extenuation of, and attempt to change the subject from, the fulsome Jeremiah Wright. I focused on the false equivalence Obama drew between his grandmother and Wright. Mickey Kaus meticulously teases out a number of other false equivalencies in the speech. Steve Sailer contrasts Obama’s account of his grandmother in Dreams From My Father with the account in his speech. Sailer concludes that Obama threw his grandmother “under the wheels of the BS express.”
Don’t think that American voters noticed how far too easily Obama trashed his own family for political expediency. Will Hillary be able to make this case to the Democrat Super Delegates?
Or will the Democrat Party nominate an extremist who trash talks his own grandmother?
