When Barack Obama appeared on the political scene, the media refused to vet him.
Instead, they engaged in hero worship and their soft coverage allowed him to skate into the White House.
But now a biographer is revealing some disturbing information that – had it been known at the time – could have ended Obama’s political career.
David Garrow is working on a book about Obama’s life.
He revealed on The Jamie Weinstein Show that Obama referred to America as a “racist society” in a manuscript he co-authored in the early 1990s.
The Daily Mail reports:
“Biographer David Garrow says he uncovered a number of significant revelations about the former US president for his upcoming book on Obama’s life to be released next month.
Garrow, who spent eight years researching and writing the biography, told The Jamie Weinstein Show that it was quite possible some of the revelations could have derailed Obama’s candidacy if they surfaced in 2008.
The historian said Obama and his friend Robert Fischer wrote hundreds of pages for a proposed book in the early 1990s when they were still in law school. The manuscript was never published.
‘Racism against African Americans continues to exist throughout American society, an admittedly racist culture,’ Obama and Fischer wrote, according to Garrow.
‘Precisely because America is a racist society we cannot realistically expect white America to make special concessions toward blacks over the long haul.
The greatest testimony to the force of racist ideology in American culture is that it infects not only the mind of whites, but the minds of blacks as well.’”
Garrow is no crank or partisan hack.
He won the Pulitzer Prize for his 1987 biography of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Garrow also confirmed what many on the right have long claimed – that the media never engaged in any serious investigation of Obama, and had the truth about his life been known, he may never have been elected President either.
The Daily Mail also reports:
“Garrow said there was 140 or so pages about race in the manuscript, which gave an insight into Obama’s thinking when he was leaving law school and about to enter public life in Illinois.
Without going into detail, he said if Republican researchers had come across the manuscript when Obama first ran for president, there would have been multiple things that could have negatively impacted him.
He said people would be ‘profoundly astonished’ by how much of Obama’s life has not yet been revealed, but added that it wasn’t necessarily in a negative context.
He also suggested that he would question the reliability of parts of Obama’s memoir Dreams From My Father, which was published in 2004. “
The media gave Obama a complete pass during his political career.
His background was never examined and his association with radicals was swept under the rug.
And this manuscript wasn’t some top secret document hidden away under lock and key.
A historian easily accessed it.
So why didn’t the so-called “mainstream” media do the digging?
Thanks to Garrow’s work, Americans will get a full picture of Obama’s life.
Maybe he would have won the election anyway.
Either way, it’s clear the media worked overtime to cover up for Obama, and they deprived the American people of information about his past and beliefs that would have fully informed their decision when he was on the ballot.
