Land of the Free – Not Kenya

Today in Nairobi Kenya the American author of a best-selling book attacking Barack Obama, Jerome Corsi, who wrote The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality. He was picked up by police, briefly detained at immigration headquarters before being brought to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for deportation. This is a real life example of why our system is truly free. Corsi book claims Obama is unfit for the presidency so he was being deported. He had been scheduled to launch his book Tuesday in Kenya, where the Democratic U.S. presidential candidate is popular. The book claims Obama is a dangerous, radical candidate for president that he was raised a Muslim and attended a radical black church. Obama’s father was a Kenyan economist and the candidate is considered by many Kenyans as a native son. The claim is that he did not have a work permit, we see this as another country that makes rules up as they go along, using them as they see fit. Obama is a rock star in Kenya and they were not going to let this guy tarnish his reputation. Every time we hear a story like this it makes the freedoms we hold dear in the United States mean so much. You cannot be shutdown because your opinion is unpopular. Every voice has the right to protest and participate in any gathering. We do not even deport immigrants as there is about 13 million roaming American streets today. Diverse opinion is what makes a country strong and Kenya should be ashamed of taking a stance like this.
