“Just keep smiling at ’em”

More than one person has told me that Obama gives them a chill, a normal reaction to the icy fear they feel. They’re Cuban you see, and they’ve seen this kind a public hysteria before, fifty years ago when a charismatic young “revolutionary” seduced, betrayed, and then laid ruin to their homeland. They know Obama will be a disaster for America if elected president, they know it in their guts, because they recognize the duplicity.
That young psychopathic revolutionary hated those he charmed, as they were products of a civil society that represented all he envied and loathed. Obama shares those traits, especially the lying and the loathing. Thankfully, in our time, it’s harder to hide the truth, at least from those paying attention.
Mahone Dunbar brilliantly deconstructs Obama’s genteel veneer at Paxety Pages, starting with this revealing quote from his book, “Dreams From My Father.”

“It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned: People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves. They were more than satisfied, they were relieved — such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn’t seem angry all the time.”

  1. good read, but I think he goes over the top a bit with the Rhodesia comment. Barack is more akin to Jimmy Carter than Robert Mugabe plain and simple.
    Besides taxing us to death, you can get an idea of what would happen under his watch by looking at what happened under Carter:
    Let’s see if folks remember 1976-1980:
    Sandinistas take over Managua and establish Cuban style Marxist government; We allow the Shah to be deposed and the Ayatollah to come back as leader; we give away the Panama Canal, the Cubans invade Angola, the Russians invade Afghanistan. Oil Embargo, Mariel Boatlift, double digit inflation.
    So in an Obama administration, when the s*it hits the fan at 3am, I guess he’ll be calling Hillary.
    :-p

  2. Here is some context for the quote from the loon over at Paxety:
    “In a revealing passage in his first book, he recounts how, in adolescence, he defused his white mother’s fears that he was drifting into delinquency. She had marched into his room and demanded to know what was going on. He flashed her “a reassuring smile and patted her hand and told her not to worry.” This, he tells us, was “usually an effective tactic,” because people
    were satisfied as long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves. They were more than satisfied; they were relieved—such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn’t seem angry all the time.”
    In other words, Obama was trying to get over as a teenager. Wow, I never did that. You guys?

  3. Mira — the very quote you give above shows that Obama was not limiting this behavior to his mother as a teen as you seem to be saying. His mother wouldn’t be “surprised to find a well-mannered young black man who didn’t seem angry all the time” because that was her son, who she naturally knew intimately and would not see as just some ‘well-mannered young black man’. Only non-black strangers might see him that way but not his mother.

    Also, the quote says “THEY were more than satisfied; THEY were relieved” (emphasis mine). The “they” can’t be his mother unless you mean to suggest he had more than one mother, all of whom viewed him as a black stranger. But since that’s not likely, the wording and context strongly imply that he’s saying that he perfected this routine on his mother as a teen and has used it frequently ever since.

    It’s not a bad thing in and of itself to develop the ability to put people at ease. Good or bad is determined by your motivations in doing so and that is the material point.
