Since a Chinese graduate student at Columbia University, Minghui Yu,
was killed last Friday when black youths violently set upon him,
sending him running into traffic to escape, I think B. Hussein Obama
ought to start referring to the mindset of the "typical Asian person."
As of Wednesday, police had no motive for the attack, and witnesses said they heard no demand
for money or anything else. The Associated Press reports that the
assailant simply said to his friend, "Watch what I do to this guy"
before punching Yu.
Meanwhile, let's revisit the story about Obama's grandmother being guilty of thinking like a "typical white person." As
recounted in Obama's autobiography, the only evidence that his
grandmother feared black men comes from Obama's good-for-nothing,
chronically unemployed white grandfather, who accuses Grandma of racism
as his third excuse not to get dressed and drive her to work.
His grandmother wanted a ride to work at 6:30 in the morning
because, the day before, she had been aggressively solicited by a
homeless man at the bus stop. On her account, the panhandler "was very
aggressive, Barry. Very aggressive. I gave him a dollar and he kept
asking. If the bus hadn't come, I think he might have hit me over the
Even Obama's shiftless grandfather didn't play the race card until
pretty far into the argument over whether he would drive Grandma to
work. First, the good-for-nothing grandfather told Obama that Grandma
was just trying to guilt him into driving her, saying, "(S)he just
wants me to feel bad."
Next, he complained about his non-work routine being disrupted,
saying: "She's been catching the bus ever since she started at the
bank. ... And now, just because she gets pestered a little, she wants
to change everything!"
Only after Obama had offered to drive his grandmother to work
himself and it was becoming increasingly clear what a selfish lout the
grandfather was, did Grandpa produce his trump card. The reason he
wouldn't get his lazy butt dressed and drive Grandma to work was ...
she was a racist!
As Obama recounts it, on Grandpa's third try at an excuse, he told
Obama: "You know why she's so scared this time? I'll tell you why.
Before you came in, she told me the fella was black. That's the real
reason she's bothered. And I just don't think that's right." So I guess I'll be heading back to the sack now!
That makes sense. It certainly never bothers me when crazy white people harass and threaten me.
This is Obama's own account of what happened, which – as anyone can
see – consisted of his slacker grandfather making a series of excuses
to avoid having to drive the sole bread-earner in the family to work.
But Obama says, "The words were like a fist in my stomach, and I
wobbled to regain my composure." (It was as if he had been punched by
an aggressive panhandler at a bus stop!) And not because his
grandfather's sorry excuse reminded him that he came from a long line
of callow, worthless men, both black and white.
No, Obama swallowed his grandfather's pathetic excuse hook, line and
sinker, leading Obama to a reverie about his grandparents: "I knew that
men who might easily have been my brothers could still inspire their
rawest fears." That's true – assuming his brothers and sisters were
menacing people at bus stops.
How deranged would you have to be to cite this incident as evidence
that your grandmother thought like a "typical white person" – as
opposed to your grandfather being worthless and lazy? For those keeping
score, Obama is aghast at his grandmother's alleged racism, but had no
problem with Jeremiah Wright's manifest racism.
If Obama is sent reeling by the mere words of an elderly white
woman, how is he going to negotiate with a guy like Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad? What if Ahmadinejad calls him "booger-face"? Will he run
crying from the table?
Your grandmother wasn't a racist, Barack.
Your grandpa was just a loser. Can we wrap up our national conversation
about race now? I think we'd like to move onto questions about your
stupid plan to hold talks with Iran.
