Senator Barack Husein Obama’s father is from Kenya. His name was Husein Obama. He was a member of the Luo tribe. The Luo or Lwo are a family of linguistically affiliated ethnic groups who live in an area that stretches from the southern Sudan, through northern Uganda and eastern Congo (DRC). During their history they were at one time one of the main tribes to enslave and sell their neighbors into slavery to the whites or to the Arabs - whoever was closest and had the most money. Specifically Barack Husein Obama’s tribe is the Joluo and his father was a nationally known political agitator. Even though Husein Obama Senior was politically active the Luo tribe in Kenya took a back seat during the years of conflict for independence from Britain. The preferred to leave their fighting to others. After Kenya gained its independence it became one of the exceptions to the rule in Africa. Being a liberated colony the new leadership took power with little or no violence and maintained order for nearly forty years. During this time Kenya became one of the most powerful and richest black African nations. Many people look to Kenya in the east, Nigeria to the west and South Africa in the south to form the basis of a triangle of peace and prosperity. Kenya was able to put a controlling pressure on Uganda during the violent years of Idi Amin Dada’s rule. It was Kenya, it was hoped, that could lead the way to stop the genocide in the Sudan. Recall that the Luo tribe, of whom Barack Husein Obama claims for his own, live throughout southern Sudan - the location of the atrocities against mankind. Barack Husein Obama is a mystery to me but I do know that within 6 months of his visit to Kenya on August 26, 2006 the country has been teetering toward madness. His family in Kenya has been catapulted again into the public eye in Kenya. From the way they are acting it is as if the Luo people are expecting something that is not clear to the rest of us. This much is clear - after the last election President Mwai Kibaki became president of Kenya. Raila Odinga, his opponent and a radical, whose son, by the way, is named Fidel Odinga after Fidel Castro, did not like the result of the election and began to protest it. His followers became violent. Protests turned into riots. Many people were killed and some of President Kibaki’s supporters, in towns where they were outnumbered, began take refuge in Christian churches. Some of the churches were burned down. One of them - the Kenya Assemblies of God was surrounded by a screaming mob of political maniacs and set ablaze with women and children inside. Twenty-five children were burned to death along with four elderly people. The religion of the Luo for some time had been animism. That is, they believe in spirits and such. These days, however, the Luo are muslims. So what happened to the Kenya Assemblies of God was a crime of religious hatred but not only that it was an act of ethnic cleansing. In fact the Luo seem intent on driving out every other tribe or anyone different from them as soon as they can. What is it they want? As in Sudan there are large stores of untapped oil, gas and minerals. By driving off their rivals and putting one of their own in power they could hope to cement their power and increase their role in the Muslim world. After the election Senator Barack Husein Obama according to his spokesman called Raila Odinga "to express grave concern over the election outcome" of the election. Then Barack Husein Obama went off to an election rally of his own in New Hampshire to run for President of the United States and he apparently breathed not a word about the murderous and maniacal actions the followers of one of his friends had just carried out. When asked what the platform of his campaign was (and continues to be even after he lost the election) Odinga says, “My platform is change.” The first thing he wants to change in Kenya is the Constitution. Says Odinga, “…we ran on a platform of change.” Obama’s platform, according to his ‘official’ website is : “It’s about change.” There you have it. The questions remain : What is Barack Husein Obama - a Senator from Illinois - doing when he is interacting with a violent rebel, muslim leader in Kenya who may have been responsible for the murder of dozens of innocent people burned to death simply because they took refuge in a church? What is Barack Husein Obama doing when he interferes in the internal operations of a foreign nation like Kenya? Are you going to let a well organized and well financed representative of a foreign government push his way any further into your national government? How many more people have to die before Americans come to understand that Barack Husein Obama is not a product of the land of Lincoln? Born in Hawaii he spent most of his life in the violent and backward nation of Indonesia – where not too long ago the Australians had to stop the Muslims from killing all the Christians in East Timor. When will this blood soaked travesty of our national political system come to an end? When will the mocking smirk of our enemies be wiped from our television screens? Change they want? With the gun? With the torch?
