One of Barack Obama’s first actions upon taking office was the unceremonious rejection of the Winston Churchill bust which had been loaned to our nation as a symbol of friendship and trust after the 9/11 terrorist attack on America. Subsequent actions by Mr. Obama have revealed a deep seated hostility towards our old and valued ally culminating in his un-presidential response to the BP oil spill.
In an exclusive interview with the UK Daily Mail Sarah Onyango, the woman Barack Obama calls ‘Granny Sarah’ gave some insight into her grandson’s anti-British bias.
…Sitting under a mango tree in the garden of her modest home in Kogelo village, Kenya, surrounded by the family’s chickens, cows and goat, she recalls telling Barack Obama his family history on his first visit to Kenya in 1988.‘I narrated the whole story to Barack one evening to help him understand our family’s past. He wasn’t amused at all. He expressed quite a lot of concern about why the British had to punish his grandfather “on his own soil.”‘He said the whole act sounded barbaric. He wondered why the British never respected African culture. The arrest he said was outrageous.’ Shockingly she adds: ‘Generally, my grandson never believed the British do anything for a common good, rather than their selfish interests.’
