Dinesh D’Souza, co-director of the film "2016 — Obama's America," and author of the new book "Obama’s America," sent money to cover the hospital bill of a sick child belonging to President Barack Obama’s brother after George Obama pleaded with him over the phone for help.
In a column published on FoxNews.com,
D’Souza outlines how George Obama, the youngest of eight children sired by Barack Obama Sr., asked him to send $1,000 to cover medical bills for his young son who was sick with a chest condition.
D’Souza confirmed that the boy was ill and wired Obama the money. D’Souza met and interviewed George Obama in Kenya during research for his film.
D’Souza said in the column that President Obama wants nothing to do with his younger brother, which is surprising given that he lives in such poverty.
“Obama’s refusal to help George is especially surprising because George doesn’t just live in American-style poverty but rather in Third-World poverty,” D’Souza wrote. “He lives in a shanty in the Huruma slum in Nairobi. He gets by on a few dollars a month."
Obama also has an aunt named Hawa Auma, his father’s sister, who ekes out a living selling coal on the streets of a small village in Kenya. She says she would like to have her teeth fixed, but she cannot afford it. Obama hasn’t offered to help her either.”
“What’s going on here?” D’Souza asked. “Why is President Obama so hesitant to help family members in need?”
D’Souza hints that it could have to do with a book that George Obama participated in writing, which later was destroyed by publisher Simon & Schuster without explanation. The British journalist that teamed with George Obama said he “suspects that the White House convinced Simon & Schuster that George’s story might prove embarrassing to the president.”
D’Souza also believes that there is also a “deeper explanation” for President Obama’s snub of his brother. He wrote, “This isn’t mere negligence; it suggests an active animus. The reason for that animus emerges in George’s book and also in my interview with George in the film 2016. In that interview, George rejects the anti-colonial philosophy that was espoused by Barack Obama Sr. This is the ‘dream from my father’ that President Obama celebrates in his own autobiography.”
He continued, “Incredible though it seems, George Obama is, within the context of his own society, a conservative. He doesn’t worship at the shrine of Barack Obama Sr. and he espouses an ideology diametrically opposed to that of his father and his famous brother. George has experienced first-hand the empty rhetoric of the two Baracks, and he rejects it based on his actual experience of Third-World poverty.”
The author concluded the column by saying George Obama called him because he “had no one else to call. He reached out to me in his time of need because he felt he couldn’t call on his real life sibling living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”
