A Promised Land

A self-hagiography for the least accomplished and most divisive President of my lifetime.

The least accomplished President in my lifetime had another ghostwriter (Bill Ayers?) complete his 768-page alternate-reality fan-fiction book pretending to be an autobiographical memoir. The 3rd in the series of self-worship, and he's promising volume 2 in this set is still coming.

Reading the highlights is like watching Jeffry Toobin on zoom: you are left with the horrifying impression that Barack Obama screams out his own name while masturbating to his own reflection in the mirror, while listening to tapes of his old speeches. Fortunately, he doesn't need to take matters into his own hands, since he has the NYT and the Atlantic to give him a happy ending.

The fact that he sees the nation through a lens of self-delusion doesn't matter, since that's the same prescription that NYT and the Atlantic wear. Someday, I will slog through the highly abridged version of it, but the reviews and excerpts have let me know that it'll need to wait for a better year than 2020.

Of course this isn't completely fair, since I haven't read it... just the guffaw inspiring reviews and excerpts from the Atlantic... but I mean talk about giggle worthy...

NYT on the Book[edit | edit source]

The fawning Times couldn't heap more praise on the pretentious polarizing bombast, that glosses over any of his mistakes. You can practically hear the fapping of the writer while fawning over the Nobel Peace Prize (for being the most drone-bombing'est President in history, starting wars in Lybia, supporteing them in Egypt and Syria, and leading to the rise of the Caliphate (ISIL), paid Iran billions to develop Nuclear weapons and start an arms race in the middle east). To being the most divisive President of my lifetime. (Biden/Harris hasn't completed their term yet).



❝ His reluctance to glory in any of his achievements has a particular texture, the modesty of the Brilliant American Liberal, which is not so much false as it is familiar, like a much-practiced pose. It brings an urge to say, in response, “Look, take some credit already! ❞

Barack Obama's Book Review 
❝ In Oslo, he looks outside to see a crowd of people holding candles, the flames flickering in the dark night, and one senses that this moves him more than the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony itself. ❞
~ New York Times ℹ️
Barack Obama's Book Review 
❝ Barack Obama is as fine a writer as they come. It is not merely that this book avoids being ponderous, as might be expected, even forgiven, of a hefty memoir, but that it is nearly always pleasurable to read, sentence by sentence, the prose gorgeous in places, the detail granular and vivid. ❞
~ New York Times ℹ️
Barack Obama's Book Review 

His whole Presidency was around, "do what I say, or you're a god-gun clinging deplorable racist-sexist-homophobic-bigot". His was the administration that fertilized cancel culture, BLM, Antifa, Occupy Wall Street, while belittling the Tea Party (fiscal prudence), and was the direct cause of the backlash known as Donald Trump. But niether he, nor the effusive NYT will touch on any of that real history.

The Atlantic[edit | edit source]

To let you see under the covers, Obama lets you know what he values, and it's not America and what she's given him -- but his wet dreams for a marxist future, that belies the wisdom, experience and accomplishments of the past, and replaces it with the immaturity, imprudence and change without consequences that the youth is known for.

❝ If I remain hopeful about the future, it’s in large part because I’ve learned to place my faith in... those of the next generation,... my book is for those young people — an invitation to once again remake the world, and to bring about, through hard work, determination, and a big dose of imagination, an America that finally aligns with all that is best in us. ❞
~ Barack Hussein Obama
The Atlantic 

And that sort of sums it up.

Obama doesn't love America as it is, or was. He has faith that the youngest, least experienced and least wise in the ways of the world, are angsty and gullible enough to not understand the lessons of Chesterton's Fence -- that before you tear something down, you should know why it was put up. And instead, they will remake America into something Barack could be proud of: the USSA.

Conclusion[edit | edit source]

The book from the excerpts seems to be a guy more about image than reality. Someone that knows he has a Svengali effect on the gullible rubes of the left, and so he puts on the airs of false humility, then wafts confirmation bias at everyone that prefers believing in his version of reality, rather than in the universe that we live in.

To him American wasn't the promised land for millions, that allowed them to escape the collectivism and socialism to come here to be free. The promised land is not about the reality of what is or was. It is a delusion about the future, and what he imagines that ignorance, gullibility and gall will lead us into in the future -- a nation of collective sheep, bleating as part of a unified world socialist government, with any conservatives or their thoughts as grist for the mill of their socialist dystopia.
