Many times people write comments encouraging me to read books and media written or sposored by conservatives, and I actually do. So last week I was at the library and I saw the book Blacklash, How Obama and the Left are Driving Americans to the Government Plantation written by Deneen Borelli, I checked it out and have been making an attempt to read it. Bad move on my part. When I saw that the author refered to the president on the cover of the book as simply Obama I should have known this was going to be a tough one, but I was not deterred. I started reading it and in the first few chapters she strikes out at Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Rep. Charlie Rangel. This was no surprise. They all have well documented histories and she simply highlighted the negative, but her assessment of the President Obama is brutal, he is a politician and he is fair game. Page 66 of her book stopped me in my tracks she speaks about First lady Obama traveling to Spain and meeting with the king and queen and then she asks “Does she think she’s a queen too?” She goes on to say “Despite failed policies and a declining economy, Michelle and Barack demonstrate an attitutde of arrogance and elitism. They seem to act more like white elites than blacks struggling to keep their heads above water in desperate times and that’s wrong.” The writer seems to view the president and the first lady with disdain. It almost comes across as personal. She writes as if she actually knows them and that is not the case, but her contempt for the President makes this book a tough read. If you know of any books written by conservatives that state facts not opinions let me know about them. simply send it via comment.
I’m trying to read Blacklash by Deneen Borelli, but it is a tough read
