This is a book that every adult in America needs to read. I read and review many books and this is the most important book I have read in several years.
The following is from the back of the book:
"We are 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 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 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.
Hard to believe! Yes, it is hard to believe and I realize that many will reject this book out of hand. Many will consider it a bunch of crud made up by crazy loons on the right. Dinesh D'Souza is not a crazy man. Not at all. He is the president of the King's College in New York City. He is a former White House domestic policy analyst and research scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.
In this book you will 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 nation—worse 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
This book is stunning, provocative, original, and telling—no 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.
