Wash. Times: Obama ‘Sired by Kenyan Father’ Lacks American ‘Blood Impulse’

November 17, 2009

(ChattahBox)—-Wesley Pruden, editor emeritus of The Washington Times penned a loathsome piece today that gives off such a hateful and racially charged stench, that any decent person reading it should rightfully become sickened from its foul odor. Pruden, known for his racial animus, suggested that President Obama’s bow of respect when meeting the Japanese Emperor, represented an act of “servile submission” that revealed a “deep sense of inferiority.”

But Pruden concluded that President Obama doesn’t know any better, because he is not one of us; his father after all, was Kenyan and his white mother was attracted to black men.

Pruden contends that President Obama “…seems never to have studied much American history,” but even if he had, Obama’s lack of a true American “blood impulse” would prevent him from truly understanding American ideals. And why is this so? Well, because he has a foreign black father and a mother who chased after “men of the Third World” of course:

“But Mr. Obama, unlike his predecessors, likely knows no better, and many of those around him, true children of the grungy ’60s, are contemptuous of custom. Cutting America down to size is what attracts them to “” hope for “change.” It’s no fault of the president that he has no natural instinct or blood impulse for what the America of “the 57 states” is about. He was sired by a Kenyan father, born to a mother attracted to men of the Third World and reared by grandparents in Hawaii, a paradise far from the American mainstream.”

“He no doubt wants to “do the right thing” by his lights, but the lights that illumine the Obama path are not necessarily the lights that illuminate the way for most of the rest of us. This is good news only for Jimmy Carter, who may yet have to give up his distinction as our most ineffective and embarrassing president.”

As pointed out by Think Progress, Pruden once wrote a column condemning Senate lawmakers for passing a resolution that apologized for never enacting an anti-lynching law. The editor of the right-wing Washington Times also previously made “sympathetic statements about the Confederacy” and employed “a neo-Confederate activist in the Times newsroom.”

Pruden’s racial animus was also noted by the hate watch group, Southern Poverty Law Center. In 1992 Pruden gave an interview with the Southern Partisan saying:

“‘The Times was the most “in-your-face” conservative newspaper in America. When Robert E. Lee’s birthday rolls around every year, he said, “I make sure we have a story” — especially because the occasion “falls around Martin Luther King’s birthday.”‘
