Obama Says Muslims Offended
By New Yorker Cover
The Illinois Muslim - also known as Barack Hussein Obama, Junior - said of the recent New Yorker cover cartoon that it is "an insult to Muslims." NY Daily News:
The New Yorker cartoon [is] "actually an insult against Muslim Americans," he said. There are "wonderful Muslim Americans" across the country, Obama said, and "for this to be used as sort of an insult, or to raise suspicions about me, I think is unfortunate."
His whine is a rather peculiar statement since it was only a few weeks ago that we learned that while Obama has visited churches and synagogues, he has yet to appear at a single mosque.
His whine is also rather peculiar - let alone legitimate - since it was Obama's campaign staff that in June, at an Obama rally in Detroit, told Muslims wearing their traditional clothing that they were not allowed or permitted to be seated behind the stage of where Obama would be front and center.
So, let me understand this whole Obama-Muslim Controversy: According to Obama a cartoon portraying him as the president and as a Muslim - and which depicts his wife as a terrorist - is insulting to Muslims, but telling Muslims that "you look too Muslim therefore you cannot be seated behind the stage at my rally" is acceptable? Do I have this right? Is this how it is? Seems so.
If Muslims are going to be upset with anyone about how they are depicted, ignored, displaced, used or abused, the person to be upset with with is Obama! He is as guilty of mistreating Muslims - distancing himself as far as he can - as anyone at which he points his finger.
This whole issue is hysterically funny. Obama's half-brother, Malik, and other relatives, say they are surprised by Barack's denial that he is not a Muslim.
Every word and action from Obama is in conflict with what he told the New York Times on March 6, 2007:
“I was a little Jakarta street kid,” he said [who]...once got in trouble for making faces during Koran study classes in his elementary school, but a president is less likely to stereotype Muslims as fanatics — and more likely to be aware of their nationalism — if he once studied the Koran with them.
Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”
We know how radical Islam reacted to Danish cartoons portraying Mohammad. Obama reacts in almost the same manner to the New Yorker depiction.
Hubba Hubba. Dirka Dirka.
version. Obama avoids any association with Islam and Muslims. His staff tell them they can't sit behind the podium where he will be speaking which is where they would be seen. Then he comes out and says the Yorker cover is insulting to Muslims?
You made this call spot on, Dave.
The Shakespeare quote is indeed fitting to Obama. He DOES protest too much. Or should that be "whines" too much? He's a perfect example of Phil Gramm's recent comment of a "nation of whiners."
He is already sucking the corporate dick, he is not going to reform healthcare, I dont know why everybody thinks he's their 'SAVIOUR'
He bowed to the Saudi King and he obviously DOES NOT STAND FOR AMERICA......
WHAT HAPPENED TO AMERICAN PRIDE, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AND HEART OVER HAND.
THIS IS AMERICA, LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT, BUT DON'T SELL IT OUT.
