Publisher's Summary

Critics of President Obama have attacked him as a socialist, an African American radical, and a big-government liberal. But somehow the critics have failed to understand what’s truly driving Barack Obama. Now best-selling author Dinesh D’Souza throws out these misplaced attacks in his new book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage.

D’Souza explains that the reason Obama appears to be working to destroy America from within is found, as Obama himself admits, in The Dreams of My Father: a deeply hostile anticolonialism. Instilled in him by his father, this worldview has led President Obama to resent America and everything we stand for.

Viewing Obama through this anticolonialism prism and drawing evidence from President Obama’s own life and writings, D’Souza masterfully shows how Obama is working to weaken and punish America here and abroad. From enacting crippling financial reforms to setting artificial withdrawal dates in Iraq and Afghanistan, Obama is trying to muzzle the capitalism which he sees as exploiting the weak. Our president, argues D’Souza, is more concerned with being labeled as America the Oppressor than winning the war on terror.

The Roots of Obama’s Rage reveals Obama for who he really is: a man driven by the anticolonial ideology of his father and the first American president to actually seek to reduce America’s strength, influence, and standard of living. Controversial and compelling, The Roots of Obama’s Rage is poised to be the one book that truly defines Obama and his presidency.

Dinesh D’Souza is the best-selling author of several books, including What’s So Great about America, What’s So Great about Christianity, and Life after Death. He has been a White House policy analyst, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and a fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. He lives in Rancho Santa Fe, California, with his wife Dixie and their daughter Danielle.

Obama Exposed!

The groundwork was fully laid; the performance was soft, not harsh, excellently delivered, and, believe me, this was no story! It was the thorough, methodical, we'll-researched work exposing the agenda of Barack Hussein Obama. If you love America, I highly recommend this book. Cudos, Dinesh Desousa, and Audible!

Biased and Undeserving of my Time!

I couldn't get pass the first chapter! The author takes the liberty to make the assumption that he knows how blacks feel and what they want from the government. I must thank him for enlightening me and the rest of black Americans on what we want from the government.

If you want to understand Obama.

This book is a must-have for anyone who wants to understand Obama. The author lays out the only working theory that I have encountered that explains why Obama consistently takes actions that harm America.

Excellent Book

This is an excellent book by Dinesh. He lays it out perfectly of who Barrack Obama really is, and everything Dinesh tells us can be checked on.. Recommended reading for all conservatives. All I can say is Obummer hoodwinked the whole country, you really have to read this, his roots of rage all go back to his father....He was Obama #1 during his campaign to become president, then once he became president he became Obama #2...Really you have to read or listen to this book.

Obiden’s Third Term

Foundational evidence that whatever Obama was unable to accomplish in his first two terms he is working tirelessly to bring to fruition through the Obiden p-residency.

Now I understand

After reading/listening, I was finally able to understand the actions and inaction of #44 during and after his Presidency. D'Souza is able to relate to Obama and that allows him the ability to see multiple perspectives. He gets it right and accurately predicts the future. It is no surprise that the Obama camp wanted this book and D'Souza to go away. Thank you Dinesh D'Souza for providing the missing history that explains this Enemy of America and Freedom. We the People must fight back against the Dreams of Barry Boy. (America will never be a Socialist Country)
