Ex-Mayor Giuliani Stands By His ''Obama-is-Anti-American'' Claim

Last month, Democrats were predictably slamming former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for questioning whether President Barack Obama ''loves America,'' while several potential 2016 GOP candidates either distanced themselves from his statements or said they believe Obama loves his country but is definitely engaged in questionable policies.

While the firestorm was going on, the former mayor made the interview circuit, where he clarified his statements slightly but did not back down on what he'd said during a private Republican dinner event on that Wednesday night at Manhattan's elite "21" Club.

At the dinner, Giuliani said that he knows "this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America ... he doesn't love you. And he doesn't love me. He wasn't brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country."

But Giuliani, while softening his comments, didn't back down, telling Fox News' Megyn Kelly on Thursday night that he felt his opinion was "perfectly reasonable," and that he wants to repeat that "all I've heard of him [Obama], he apologizes for America, he criticizes America."
"He sees Christians slaughtered and churches burnt down and doesn't stand up and hold a press conference although we hold a press conference for the situation in Ferguson," Giuliani told Kelly. "He sees Jews being killed for anti-Semitic reasons. He sees Gays being tossed off of high buildings and stoned-to-death. Yet he doesn't stand up and hold a press conference and condemn these inhuman practices. What is he waiting for?''
"This is an American president I've never seen before."

He admitted that patriots are "allowed to criticize," but he doesn't feel Obama's love of America ... ''if we look at his rhetoric, [he] has not displayed the kind of love of America ... the exceptionalism that other American presidents have displayed.''
"That he has gone abroad and criticized us over and over again, apologized for us. Every time he does it embarrasses me."

And Giuliani said he will not back down unless he hears the president make a speech praising the country and admitting that "Islamic fundamentalist terrorism is our enemy." He added, ''I feel most Americans are starting to feel the same as I do.''

The former mayor also defended his comments about Obama not being brought up to love the United States, which some leftist critics called it racist.

"Some people thought it was racist — I thought that was a joke, since he was brought up by a white mother, a white grandfather, went to white schools, and most of this he learned from white people," Giuliani told The New York Times"This isn’t racism. This is socialism or possibly even a mean-spirited  anti-colonialism.''
We are at risk of running out of dead horse to flog, but there’s one more aspect of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani’s anti-Obama comments that’s worth isolating. Speaking with reporters from the New York Times, Giuliani denied that his statement that President Obama doesn’t love America was related in any way to the president’s race. “This isn’t racism,” Giuliani said. “I repeat, this smells of socialism or possibly a strong anti-colonialism.”

Socialism doesn’t require any further explanation (unless you're a Millennial); Giuliani is suggesting that Obama is an opponent of capitalism. But what’s the “anti-colonial” thing?

As with many anti-Obama sentiments, that particular charge can be traced back to Dinesh D’Souza. In September 2010, Forbes ran an excerpt from D’Souza’s upcoming book The Roots of Obama’s Rage. “To his son,” it reads, referring to Obama’s father, “the elder Obama represented a great and noble cause, the cause of anti-colonialism. Obama Sr. grew up during Africa’s struggle to be free of European rule, and he was one of the early generation of Africans chosen to study in America and then to shape his country’s future.”

D’Souza (photo left) defines anti-colonialism as “the doctrine that rich countries of the West got rich by invading, occupying and looting poor countries of Asia, Africa and South America” — which is somewhat more specific than others might offer. Colonialism generally refers to the era in which European nations (and others, including the United States), occupied other countries as satellite states. Think: “The sun never sets on the British empire.” Anti-colonialism, in the broadest sense, is opposition to that practice.

The argument over anti-colonialism predates D’Souza, of course. For a century, opposition to imperialism was intertwined with communist politics. In part, that was a function of the place of communists outside the political power structure. And in part, it was resonant with countries seeking to declare their independence. At the Second Congress of the Communist International in 1920, the group linked colonialism and capitalism. (Among the theses: “The loss of the colonies and the proletarian revolution in the mother countries will bring the downfall of the capitalist order in Europe.”)
Friedrich Engels theorized about an uprising in colonial India in 1882. Ho Chi Minh complained about French colonialism in Vietnam in 1923. In a speech in 1961, Che Guevara saw Cuba as the launching point for an anticolonial wave. “Victory by the popular forces in Latin America is clearly possible,” he said, which could be “the first stage in completely destroying the superstructure of the colonial world.”
The argument D’Souza makes to prove his point, is by the way he runs a thread from Obama’s father (with whom, remember, Obama did not grow up) to anticolonial thinkers of the era in which he lived. D’Souza quotes one line from a book written by an academic, noting that this person taught Obama at Columbia. “It may seem incredible to suggest that the anticolonial ideology of Barack Obama Sr. is espoused by his son, but the reality is there”

D’Souza writes, “That is what I am saying.” Obama “adopted his father’s position that capitalism and free markets are code words for economic plunder” —despite Obama’s having essentially no contact with him. Of course, his mother's Communist friends and grandparents saturated his very being from childhood with dislike for capitalism. Also, 20 years of sitting in Jeremiah Wright's church and hearing over and over, ''God Damn America'' or varieties thereof  gradually brainwashed him.

With the 2012 election approaching, Newt Gingrich embraced D’Souza’s argument. To the Post‘s Robert Costa (then at the National Review), Gingrich declared that D’Souza had made a stunning insight.  ''What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension,” he said, according to Costa, “that only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]? That is the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior.”
Gingrich’s comments kicked up much more furor than D’Souza’s, given that the former speaker of the House planned to run for president. A reporter dug up Gingrich’s avowedly pro-colonial dissertation, while the Los Angeles Times lamented that “Gingrich used to be a serious figure.” 
 What prompted Giuliani to throw the expression into the mix isn’t clear. It was simply less contentious but true.

The Way I See's about someone believable of stature, who would not be intimidated with not hidden agenda came out with what many Americans are sensing from the Obama White House. I have already done much background checking into the Obama's past, both him and Michele's, and have posted quite explicit information about them that I'm sure most Americans who foolish voted for him don't want to know.

My background checks have revealed the Obama's links with socialists, communists and other ranking radicals that wish nothing more than to destroy the United States from within. I''ve exposed three (3) of Barack's socialist/communist mentors (31 August - 3 September, 2012) that infected him with a distaste for American values and society as a whole. This may seem shocking to many, but it's true.

Michelle Obama is also an ungrateful radical racist woman. You just have to read my posting; ''The Very Radical Racist Background of Michelle Obama!'' (November, 8, 2013) to understand the significance that she and her husband have on America's future. Some of the words spoken by these two anti-Americans have come directly from the radical book entitled Rules for Radicals by Saul D. Alinsky. I have also exposed Alinsky's background in a previous posting (Obama: Lucifer is My Homeboy! - September 13, 2012).  Read all five (5) of these postings to get the Real Big Picture of what's living in the White House.
