The First Hippie President

Don’t trust anyone over 30.

 

Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president.

Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie.

And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not in the slightest. That was a masquerade — remember Altamont? It was a put-down of “The Man” and violent aggression toward everything that was decent just because it was normal and the status quo. And the methods were — pace Bill Ayers, the Chicago Seven, the Weathermen, et al. — “by any means necessary.” “Burn, baby, burn” whether you were white or black. As Jonah Goldberg eloquently pointed out in his brilliant book, hippie culture was part and parcel of “liberal fascism.”

Which accounts for a lot of where we are today. Trust a hippie to negotiate with the mullahs and trust a hippie, yet more incredibly if reports are true, to negotiate with Hezbollah.

I know. I was one myself. Sort of.

Of course, most of us grew out of it. Obama, however, was late to the party and, like many latecomers, didn’t quite see it for what it was. The hippie period latecomers I have noticed were envious of their forebears and didn’t quite grasp that the whole might have been mere teenage rebellion. Lost in a nostalgia for what they never quite had, they took it all a bit too seriously. (Some of those forebears too, like Tom Hayden, trapped themselves for life in their tired rhetoric. They weren’t able to  grow up and face anything close to reality.)

Forged birth certificate and selective service card, and a social security number that was flagged by E-verify as belonging to dead man born in 1890, gee, I'm certainly NOT certain about anything presented by HUSSEIN's regime as "truth!"

Obozo was DISBARRED by Illinois in 2002
Obozo failed all his College Courses
Obozo was at best a mediocre pupil at School
Obozo used an Indonesian Passport to go to Pakistan in 1981
Obozo received FOREIGN STUDENT funding in College.

Not true you say and I say OK PROVE it.
An open CHALLENGE to all the loyal Obozo worshipers . All of these documents listed below are HIDDEN. So take the list of documents that he is HIDING and give us a point by point explanation why each one is being HIDDEN or alternatively show WHERE that information is AVAILABLE for scrutiny. Only when you have done that can you then throw out your wild accusations of conspiracy nut or BIRTHER against anyone. The ones who ARE CONSPIRING are the ones who are HIDING the documents not those merely asking to see them and only a blind worshiper would have the reverse morality to see it any other way. So lets see what you are made of.

Oh and just in case you want to pretend you dont know what is missing here is a list .
Here apart from his Vault Birth Certificate are just some but my no means ALL of the OTHER documents and information the Obozo is HIDING.

There is a lifetime of “missing” documentation — but it must a coincidence — it has to be a coincidence — just keep telling yourself, “it’s a coincidence.”

Obama/Dunham divorce — Released (by independent investigators)


Soetoro/Dunham marriage license — Not released


Soetoro adoption records — Not released


Punahou School records — Not released


Soetoro/Dunham divorce — Released (by independent investigators)
Soetero/Obama name change documentation - Not released


Selective Service Registration — Released — Probable counterfeit


Occidental College records — Not released and vigorously defended


Passport records — Not released and official government passport files scrubbed clean by John O. Brennan — now Obama’s terrorism and intelligence czar

Just a coincidence???????????

Columbia College records — Not released


Columbia thesis — “Soviet Nuclear Disarmament” — Not released


Harvard College records — Not released


Harvard Law Review articles — None


Illinois Bar Records — Not released


Baptism certificate — None


Medical records — Not released (unless you count a one-pager from his personal physician saying Obama’s healthy)

Just a coincidence????????

Law practice client list — Not released


University of Chicago scholarly articles — None


Annenberg Challenge Board Minutes — None


Illinois State Senate records — None


Illinois State Senate schedule — Lost

Almost 50 years old and there’s no paper trail — coincidence, Would you hire someone with this curriculum vitae? The man is completely undocumented. You don’t know anything about Obama — operative word, KNOW. None of us really do because he and his life are undocumented — an impossible coincidence — and Obama fiercely defends the release of what documentation is available.
Some of us believe that something isn’t on the level and that we are entitled as United States citizens to ask any damned politician who he is, what his politics are, what his agenda is, where he came from and WHO CREATED HIM.

Posted by t-minus10 on American Thinker but well worthy of being posted here.

Barack Hussein Obama, Communist's son,
You bring a knife and he'll bring a gun.
Scammed a bunch of money to write a book,
Little did they know that he was a crook.
Took all their money and spent it on crack,
Til there was nothing to give them back.
Then he hatched a plan to increase his wealth,
By writing another book about himself.
Enlisting the aid of anarchist Bill,
Obama would become his own book's shill.
"I wrote it myself" he chirped to the masses,
Which the media obediently echoed like braying jackasses.
A tissue of lies and imaginary composite people,
Was believed complete truth by ignorant sheeple.
And now we are stuck with this Liar-In-Chief,
Himself a composite person of Narcissus and Thief.

NOT A HIPPIE. JUST A LIAR.
This guy has been lying his whole life -- and has never been called on it. So even now this guy still doesn't understand why telling people what they want to hear -- even though it's a complete lie -- is a bad thing. After all, everyone still applauds his teleprompter performances.

Well Roger, you couldn't be more mistaken. Music, hair length and drug use may have been similar but you're confusing a small subset of the youth culture with those of us who weren't particularly political but just wanted to get high have some fun. Yeah pretty much everyone of a certain age wanted to stop the war and stuff but the SDS/Black Panther/Weather Underground types were not hippies. They were and are naive fools and tools. As for Altamont? That's what happens when you hire the Hell's Angels to do security. They had long hair but were definitely not hippies either. You might want to read Tom Wolfe's Electric Koolaid Acid Test for perspective. Ken Kesey declared the death of Hippies in 1967. After that there were a mixed bag of charlatans, wannabes and rip off artists trying to cash in. Or do you think Ayers, Dohrn et al and the Manson family were hippies too? Don't let the hair fool you. The Nazis had very short hair. Does everyone with very short hair become a Nazi?

Well, we're the same age pretty much, when he was touring Pakistan, I was in the Air Force doing my cold war service. So my view of hippies is colored by my past, which was very different, than lil Miss Marxist's was..

When the Uncle I idolized as the family hero was coming home from his second of three Vietnam tours, these hippie "peace" types spit on him.. I have hated them with the passion of the Sun since.. They didn't buy into violence, I could accept that people were pacifists, hippies weren't...

They wanted the other side to win.. convinced Ho Chi Minh was just a kindly grandfather, who just happened to murder entire villages of Southern Vietnam government supporters, because Uncle Sam.. "made" him do it..

some were just in it for the weed and the lazy lifestyle.. but a lot were not, and those.. can slow roast in Hell... Kerry at the top of the list with Hanoi Jane and the rest of the pro-Communist protestors..

Maybe he should just step away from the crack-pipe:

Your twice-elected commander-in-chief can’t express an opinion until his handlers give it to him.

(in that pretentious accent, as if anyone could conceivably know how Genghis really pronounced it)?

You've nailed the 'pretentious'. But there are folks running around Mongolia with that name today, and an unbroken string back to the thirteenth century, who certainly do know how to pronounce it.

Agreed, that John Kerry hadn't a clue in the 1970s, and hasn't learned anything since, of the languages used in Mongolia. Too arcane for his east coast social climbing purposes.

Hippies were communists in the Archie Bunker sense, they like to live in communes... commune-ists. Beyond the immediate teepee group socialization they were not so high-minded politically as this. Hair and Godspell sums them up better than hard Communism.

They still worship group-might-made-rights over individual human ones; they are all criminal extortionists aka gangsters, no matter how they dress or act.

Stop slandering Hippies by conflating control freak progressives with Freedom loving long hairs. My take on the Hippie ethos...Family, Community, and the least amount of government necessary to ensure Liberty. The Commies that Obama/Ayers love banned Rock. 'nough said. Republicans pushing the Drug War sucks but it's the Progressives that are the true control freaks. Limited government as the Founders envisioned is the True Path. Be brave Comrades!
