Continuing from Part 2, the examination of controversial leader BarryHuss Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham. His mother despised capitalism and capitalists; instead, embracing Communism.

That, most likely due to her own, itinerant father Stanley's failure at success as a furniture salesman. Before her parents joined a liberal church in Seattle and enrolled her in Liberal leaning school in Mercer Island, WA., they were only typical, White Americans; struggling to make ends meet, like most others, but unlike most others, blaming everyone else, and/or the American system for their status in life.

"Basic Instinct"

Obama describes his mother arguing with her second husband, Lolo Soetoro.
Soetoro had become an Indonesian oil company manager and wanted Ann to accompany him to various social functions with American oil company personnel.
Ann refused arguing, "Those are not my people." (p 47)

As with Obama, his mother's generation of pseudo-intellectual leftist high schoolers found a way to think of themselves as superior. How? By surrounding themselves with co-thinkers.
The Seattle Times continues:
One respite was found in a wing of Mercer Island High called "anarchy alley." Jim Wichterman taught a wide-open philosophy course that included Karl Marx (In 1950's high school~!). Next door, Val Foubert taught a rigorous dose of literature, including Margaret Mead's writings on homosexuality. Those classes prompted what Wichterman, now 80 and retired in Ellensburg, called "mothers' marches" of parents outraged at the curriculum.
Dunham thrived in the environment, Wichterman said.

"As much as a high-school student can, she'd question anything: 'What's so good about democracy? What's so good about capitalism? What's wrong with communism? What's good about communism?'" Wichterman said. "She had what I call an inquiring mind." [... said the H.S. Karl Marx instructor. Others could call her mind 'disturbed']

She also showed her politics, wearing a campaign button for Adlai Stevenson. And despite flirting with atheism, she went to services at East Shore Unitarian church, a left-leaning congregation in Bellevue.

The Chicago Tribune found more than ‘flirtation' in comments from Dunham's friends:
"She touted herself as an atheist, it was something she'd read about and could argue," said Maxine Box, who was Dunham's best friend in high school. "She was always challenging and arguing and comparing. She was already thinking about things that the rest of us hadn't."
If you were concerned about something going wrong in the world, Stanley would know about it first," said Chip Wall, who described her as "a fellow traveler...."

The Chicago Tribune mentions a description of the Dunham's chosen church as "The Little Red Church on the Hill". According to its own website, East Shore Unitarian Church got that name because of, "Well-publicized debates and forums on such controversial subjects as the admission of ‘Red China' to the United Nations...." The fact that John Stenhouse [the avowed Communist Party member, and one-time chairman of Mercer Is. school board] once served as church president might also have contributed to the "red" label.

In a 2006 speech, Obama explained: "I was not raised in a particularly religious household, as undoubtedly many in the audience were. My father, who returned to Kenya when I was just two, was born Muslim but as an adult became an atheist. My mother, whose parents were non-practicing Baptists and Methodists, was probably one of the most spiritual and kindest people I've ever known, but grew up with a healthy skepticism of organized religion herself. As a consequence, so did I."
In describing his grandparents as Baptist and Methodist, Obama was contradicting himself. Describing his grandfather in Dreams (p17), Obama wrote: "In his only skirmish into organized religion, he would enroll the family in the local Unitarian Universalist congregation...."
[We know another 'Local' couple, who are Methodist and Baptist. Neither of 'them' would ever consider attending/worshipping at either church as "a skirmish".]

Like grandfather, like grandson: Barack Obama would make his "only skirmish [there's that word, again] into organized religion", joining Chicago's Trinity United Church, inspired by anti-American church leader, Reverend Jeremiah Wright. He (0bama) held tightly to Trinity until it endangered his presidential campaign. Then he quit. This is the sole basis of Obama's description of himself as a "Christian." [I've read that BarryHuss only attended Rev. Wright's church for his own political advancement there on the southside of Chicago, where most of his constituents attended.]

Barack Obama writes: "The values she [his mother] taught me continue to be my touchstone when it comes to how I go about the world of politics."
Atheism is not the only echo of his mother and grandparents. There is the arrogance, also. Just as Ann Dunham looked down on "dull Eisenhowerness", Obama infamously described his view of rural blue collar Americans while speaking to an audience of wealthy San Francisco donors:
"It's not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

Ann Dunham could not stand the dumbed-down people who "don't know anything about geography or the rest of the world." But she had a very different idea about black Americans. As Obama explains:
"[To her] Every black man was Thurgood Marshall or Sidney Poitier; every black woman Fannie Lou Hammer or Lena Horne. To be black was to be the beneficiary of a great inheritance, a special destiny, glorious burdens that only we were strong enough to bear." (Dreams p 51)

This quote by her son BarryHuss strikes us both as very odd, almost condescending of his own mother's obvious attraction to Black men, either Communist or Capitalist. As if perhaps, Stanley Ann was ashamed of her own blanch skin, or ... simply envious.

Then there is Barry's arrogant, dismissive "typical, White (Grandmother) Person" remark last year, referring to his granny's reactions to Black people, mere months before her death in November, 2008.

NOW: for only a moment, put yourselves into BarryHuss' shoes. Your "Touchstone" values put you above other races. The same intrinsic/inherited/inculcated "Touchstone", anti-capitalistic and anti-American values rule your life, causing you to blurt out things like "the redistribution of wealth" to a G-d damn, white, capitalist plumber named Joe in Ohio, last year.

So far so good, as they say. I'm sure with you - Teh One is deliberately blank slate for his followers to write their their wants and needs, while fulfilling only his desires for power.

Stanley Ann Dunham was nothing more than a shallow vessel, devoid of and real common sense or critical thinking capabilities, and I think Obama is the same way.

Back in 1963, the year before I graduated from high school, we started to suffer those kind of fools at my high school. Although that kind of liberal thinking crap was still pretty much confined to colleges and universities, it was beginning to seep down into the high schools. It started to become the "in thing" for students to run around the halls and school grounds of high schools, in 1963-64, waving English versions of Mao Tse Tung's "Little Red Book".

As the "free-love", "pot smoking" Hippie movement grew, so did the liberal crap. I kept telling my younger brothers back then, that those Pot Smoking, bra burning, LSD popping scum would become the parents, teachers and political leaders of the future and this country will decline. How right I was.

We haven't seen the worst yet as far as Obama is concerned. I fear that what we are seeing now is only the tip of the ice berg.

As far as the Unitarian Church goes, they are "Christian" in name only.
