Brown: ‘Uncle Omar’ Should Be Deported

Justin Sink, The Hill, September 7, 2011

Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) said Tuesday that Onyango Obama, President Obama’s long-lost uncle, should be deported from the United States after being arrested last week on drunk driving charges.

“Well, yeah. He’s here illegally. He’s obviously broken the law. I don’t know enough about the details of the case, but, God, he’s been running around for how long now?” Brown said in an interview on the Howie Carr Show. “Let him go through the process and see what happens.”

Brown said that “in a fair world,” Obama’s uncle would be deported.

Onyango Obama, 67, was arrested last Wednesday when he nearly rammed his SUV into a police car in Framingham, Mass. When asked if he would like to make a phone call, Onyango reportedly said, “I think I will call the White House.”

During the 2008 campaign, Zeituni Onyango–Obama’s aunt–was found to be living as an illegal immigrant in public housing in South Boston. “Aunt Zeituni” had sought political asylum in 2002, but was ultimately denied. After a series of legal appeals, she was granted a waiver of deportation in 2010, in a decision that angered many anti-immigration activists.

    So should Nephew Barack.

    Oooh, I didn’t just say that, did I? Have I gone too far, or or have I not gone far enough?

    And, to Scott Brown: Welcome to the world of people with spines.

    Has anyone noticed this…ever since Uncle Omar was confirmed an illegal, the media has been DEAD silent about this story. Maybe they fear they’ll be the reason Obama will lose support if Omar stays in the US, and the population (other than black) will highly believe the president had something to do with keeping him here, which would surely gather white critical disacclaim.

    But maybe everything will be quiet and soon the people will forget about the first illegal uncle of the U.S.

    Then Uncle Onyango isn’t “long lost” at all, if his nephew knows he’s here.

    And btw, I wonder how many others of the extensive Obama clan are living here illegally?

    I’d also be interested to know what he’s been doing all these years. How did he get that SUV?

    How many more aunts & uncles are hiding behind the woodpile? I wonder.

    Wonder no more! Taki’s Magazine, in this week’s online issue, has the story, ‘The Obama Family Circus’. This particular uncle is pretty thoroughly profiled. I have a feeling you’ll really enjoy this read.

    ‘Onyango’s lawyer said he will fight a possible deportation, areguing that he [Omar] has been in the United States for nearly 50 years’ –

    Using that logic, I can say that I shouldn’t be prosecuted for first-degree murder, since I have managed to evade detection for nearly 50 years.

    Who is Oyango’s lawyer -the ‘constitutional scholar’ presently desecrating the Oval Office?

    Thank you, Lauren. I had no idea the extent and penetration of this peculiar family — much more than I thought. The article did a good job of covering them … the “whole litter”. Yes, I enjoyed it (if that’s quite the word for people so obnoxious).

    “Barack Obama doesn’t have merely a single embarrassing family member. He has a whole litter of them. But he’s protected by the Black Shield, a new kind of skin privilege, one it’s impossible to even mention without being branded with the irrevocably shameful “R” word.

    “But we’re not here to make fun of Barack Obama. Today, we aim at his blood relatives, many of whom have names that sound like slight variations of Ooga Booga Yabba Dabba Doo.”

    The entitlement crowd thinks the longer they’ve broken the law, the more they have the right to stay.

    Just think – if he hadn’t almost taken out a police car, he might be living la vida loca with Aunt Zuni. Too bad, Uncle O. You blew it. Now, off with you.

  • Moe

    What about Obama himself many people feel he is an illegal?

    Now Uncle Oscar and his wife/or whatever have been bleeding our system for two decades.

    I think this might be a military matter and they both should be turned over to Col. Harlan Sanders for interogation?

    Maybe the whole crowd can fly out together.

    A larger issue is not merely what we don’t know about the President’s African kinfolk, but his American relatives have been pretty much incommunicado. His maternal grandmother apparently stopped visiting with interviewers about the time the President came on the radar with his 2004 Convention speech. The brother of his maternal grandfather, may still be alive, over age 90, on the Virginia side of the Potomac. Not a peep from, or about, him.

    Yeah 8,9,&10! If there is anything left of US Constitution and law enforcement those here illegally need to be deported. I am tired of hearing all the excuses and watching layers of Fed Agency lawyers getting everybody off for ????. Those who defraud US citizens with legal chicanery need to be called to account. Where is the accountability from the legal profession??? They use the profession to violate laws written to protect US from foreign entry. (9/11 anybody!) The immigration laws have been nullified by our own judges. No one protects US. Citizens have been betrayed and robbed and lied to for benefits of illegal immigrants. Whats up with that???? $$$ No one at Feds has done anything to protect US. 9/11 Commission gives them D+. How is it We the People have become serfs???? No one incharge of prosecuting deceit,bribery and fraud does the job. It s sickening to have to sit and watch this destruction. Hundreds have betrayed US. No one is punished. Welcome to the age of no punishment, no boundaries, no enforcement, no protection and soon no money. Those who have the money stick together to bring US the global invasion. They are too cheap to pay for US.. . . so they bring in slaves and force taxpayers to subsidize their needs. They destruct US economic system and tell US we can not compete. It is really immoral greed.

    It was designed this way and gov policy put this in place.

    These vermon want chaos like they bring to all the other countries. I there a word for the destruction of good for evil?

    Items like this re the Kenyan side of the “family” do cause

    one to wonder if a huge amount of asymmetry characterizes the

    President’s “autobiographies”. His mother’s manifold hang ups

    appear to be at the core of the President’s political obsessions

    and compulsions. The characteristics of life in El Dorado, Kansas, Augusta, Kansas, and Ponca City, Oklahoma from 1942-1955

    certainly make it puzzling as to why there is not much more

    commentary from the many people observing and interacting with

    Stanlee Ann Dunham. It might be useful if Senators with standing on the one of the Oversight Committees could seek information about whether routine contact with such persons by the FBI (counter-espionage) or Secret Service (physical security)

    might have caused undue inhibition about such citizens feeling free to speak out about their recollections ?
