Obama, the Son of Africa

| »

From Rev. Austin Miles, chaplain/writer/moron, comes more evidence pointing to the deluded having so ability to comprehend metaphors or figures of speech (other than their own ridiculous ones, perhaps):

Then, yesterday a session of the United Nations began in New York. Libyan leader, Moammar Gadhafi, who was supposed to have limited speech time, raged on for a full 90 minutes during which he praised Obama and then said: "We Africans are happy, proud that a son of Africa governs the United States of America." How's that again? Did he unintentionally expose once and for all that Obama was born in Africa? A "Son of Africa" would be said of someone born there.

He who fails to understand how the phrase “son of Africa” refers to all Black people, instead of being taken literally to designate someone who was born in Africa, is not someone whose words anyone else should be giving credence to.
