Why a book about Obama? Why now?
At this point, it’s universally accepted that the Democrats are presenting “Harris Administration together with Joe Biden” this November.
So, the VDARE.com book club wants to know: who is Kamala Harris?
Who does Kamala Harris think Kamala Harris is? (See earlier: Ann Coulter On Kamala Harris: How Do I Tell My Friend She’s Not ‘African-American’? and Kamala Harris—A Barely-Black ”Immigrant American”?)
Well, we know what Barack Obama thinks about Kamala Harris. Obama sees Harris as a continuation of his legacy, rearranging the DNC speaker lineup so he could symbolically “pass the torch” to Harris. But what was that “legacy” and what did it do to race relations in America? Can we expect anything different from Kamala Harris?
For insight, we’ll find out what Obama thinks about who Obama is by reading America’s Half-Blood Prince: Barack Obama’s ‘Story of Race and Inheritance,’ in which Steve Sailer unpacks Obama’s autobiography Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance.
Obviously referencing Harry Potter, Steve Sailer comments on Obama’s introspection:
“Obama, like one of those questing orphan-heroes elucidated by Joseph Campbell, goes on a semi-metaphorical journey in which he learns how to be ‘a black American.’” Not to reconcile the races like Obama the campaigner, but to find, in Obama’s own words, “a workable meaning for his life as a black American.” - AHBP p.10
According to John Derbyshire, "Steve Sailer gives us the real Barack Obama, who turns out to be very, very different – and much more interesting – than the bland healer/uniter image stitched together out of whole cloth this past six years by Obama’s packager, David Axelrod."
A master of pattern-recognition and blunt observation, Steve Sailer reveals, through Obama’s own prose, the fascinating psychology of the self-styled “half-blood prince” politician in Sailer’s delightfully deadpan style.
So let Steve Sailer be your guide through Obama’s journey of self-discovery, and sign up for the discussion here!
