Critics of President Obama have attacked him as a socialist, an African American radical, and a big-government liberal. But somehow the critics have failed to understand what’s truly driving Barack Obama. Now best-selling author Dinesh D’Souza throws out these misplaced attacks in his new book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage.
D’Souza explains that the reason Obama appears to be working to destroy America from within is found, as Obama himself admits, in The Dreams of My Father: a deeply hostile anticolonialism. Instilled in him by his father, this worldview has led President Obama to resent America and everything we stand for.
Viewing Obama through this anticolonialism prism and drawing evidence from President Obama’s own life and writings, D’Souza masterfully shows how Obama is working to weaken and punish America here and abroad. From enacting crippling financial reforms to setting artificial withdrawal dates in Iraq and Afghanistan, Obama is trying to muzzle the capitalism which he sees as exploiting the weak. Our president, argues D’Souza, is more concerned with being labeled as America the Oppressor than winning the war on terror.
The Roots of Obama’s Rage reveals Obama for who he really is: a man driven by the anticolonial ideology of his father and the first American president to actually seek to reduce America’s strength, influence, and standard of living. Controversial and compelling, The Roots of Obama’s Rage is poised to be the one book that truly defines Obama and his presidency.
Dinesh D’Souza is the best-selling author of several books, including What’s So Great about America, What’s So Great about Christianity, and Life after Death. He has been a White House policy analyst, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and a fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. He lives in Rancho Santa Fe, California, with his wife Dixie and their daughter Danielle.

“Dinesh D’Souza is one of the most original, insightful, and penetrating minds in America today.” (Paul Johnson, author of Modern Times)
This book is biased and irrational, and inflammatory in that the author tries to pass as some sort of political scholar. This book is clearly written by a white male but because of the racial connotations, he attempt to gain 'street cred' by publishing it under the guise of a minority.
The author's thesis in the book is that Obama has anti-colonial tenancies which is nothing more than a negative connotation of believing that one group of people should not impose their will upon another group of people.
He demonizes this principle, and does so, at best, with very loose connections, and at worst, with blatant irrationality: even going so far as to chastise Obama's heroizing of his distant father as a child.
This book is not for anyone wishing to lean anything about Obama or politics.
It answered many questions I had about what drives Obama to make the choices he does.
It was easy to hear and understand.
Only use audio and loved this presentation
Finding out who Obama really is
Must reading for every American
