    Obama said it himself…. “If the winds go against them, I will stand with the Muslim”. Hopefully Obama’s Arab Spring will turn into a Clinton fall in 2016

        Muslim Obama

        “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. Barack
        Hussein Obama

        “it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding
        Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit ”Barack Hussein Obama

        “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith,
        which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the
        better, including my own country.” Barack Hussein Obama

        “The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too
        long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our
        communities and our country” Barack Hussein Obama

        “I have lived in a Muslim-majority country… I know, because
        I am one of them.” Barack Hussein Obama

        “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to
        Islam.” Barack Hussein Obama

        “Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the
        possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.” Barack Hussein Obama

        “And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the
        United States.” Barack Hussein Obama

        “And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of
        the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they
        appear.” Barack Hussein Obama

        “Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the
        freedom to practice one’s religion. That is why there is a mosque in every
        state of our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders. That is why the
        U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to
        wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it.” Barack Hussein Obama

        “We are not nor have we even been at war with Islam” Barack
        Hussein Obama

        “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”
        Barack Hussein Obama

        “We Do Not Consider Ourselves a Christian Nation” Barack
        Hussein Obama

        “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds
        shift in an ugly direction.” Barack Hussein Obama

        • Shermer

          That’s not really context Reggie, but thanks. I’ll have a look at where those quotes came from when I have some free time later today.

        • Shermer

          **“I have lived in a Muslim-majority country… I know, because
          I am one of them.”**
          Here, he is talking about being an American with muslim relatives. The quote has been doctored.
          **“Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the
          freedom to practice one’s religion. That is why there is a mosque in every
          state of our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders. That is why the
          U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to
          wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it.”**
          America’s greatest claim is freedom of religion (and not just yours). 1200 mosques? There are over 300,000 churches, so you’re hardly being overrun. I have a problem with the burqa, but a hijab is no different to wearing a hat or a wig.
          **“We are not nor have we even been at war with Islam”**
          We are at war with Islamic extremists. We are not at war with the ordinary muslims who ignore much of what is written in their holy book.
          **“Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”**
          Another incomplete quote – what he said was ” Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation – at least, not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”
          **“We Do Not Consider Ourselves a Christian Nation”**
          More of the same – the complete quote is “we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation; we consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values”.
          **“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds
          shift in an ugly direction.”**
          Here he talks about American citizens who are treated as suspects simply because of their ancestry, comparing it to the way Japanese American were treated after Pearl Harbour. he did not say Muslims, he said “them”.

    Actually, I suspect HiTtary’s “What does it matter now?” during the Benghazi testimony may be to her what Obama’s “You didn’t build that” was to him. Regardless, I HOPE she isn’t elected even to dog catcher, since she has the ethics of a slot machine (actually, the slot machine MAY be more ethical) and anyone who would try to cover Slick’s serial philandering and possible rape in order to stay close to power, can’t be trusted to run a country.

    ” This, along with much else, is one reason I struggle trusting Obama —
    although, as an “almost-pacifist,” I suppose I should be supportive of
    his anti-war, anti-military orientation and his cautious approach to the
    Syrian gas attacks. ”

    Really? “his cautious approach to the Syrian gas attacks”?
    Obama is the one beating the drum and demanding unilateral military action based on his say-so alone.

  • DrZarkov99

    Actually, I suspect the reality is that Obama is a true Marxist, and Atheist at the core. The so called “Christian” church of Rev. Wright promoted “Liberation Theology”, which is a fake Christian sect that was created by Communists to dupe gullible third world believers. Liberation theology is a soul-eating enterprise that promotes class and race hatred, seeking the destruction of capitalism as being an “unjust”, greed-based creed that stands in the way of “true social justice” (meaning wealth redistribution to equalize misery among the non-elite).

    Obama is an equal opportunity religious chameleon, adopting whatever appearance of faith that he feels gives him the sympathy of his audience. It’s easier for Muslims to believe that he’s really one of them, because their faith says it’s acceptable to lie about your beliefs if it supports the long term goals of Islam. His statements supporting the rights of Muslims go too far to be simply expressions of tolerance from a devout Christian, and demonstrate how he’s attempting to “play” an Islamic audience, making them think he’s a really clever Muslim, who is fooling gullible Christians.

    It’s impossible for a hard core narcissist to be truly devout, because the only one they worship is themselves.

    If he is a Christian than I am a rock. If you notice since he took office there is a real attack on Christians in this country. Everyday you hear the stories of how there needs to be a separation of church and state in our schools but yet, they have Muslims coming in to talk to the kids and they take them to Mosques for a field trip and they dress them up in Burqas and talk about the joys of being a Muslim woman.
    All this since the little brown clown took office and you are going to tell me that he is a Christian?
    And the fact that the death rate in Afghanistan for our soldiers has sky rocketed since he has been at the helm and had all his Muslim helpers in the pentagon and WH giving out info on their movements.
    The way that SEAL team 6 was murdered in the chopper was just one of many of his traitorous orders carried out. Why in the hell over 500 people in Congress can not do anything with one person is beyond me.

    The muslim has total disdain for anyone not muslim. To them it is ok to tease, cheat, lie to, etc, a infidel. In this case Obama has been lieing to a whole country of infidels. He ignores attrocities committed against christians, but wants to take this country to war when his muslim buddies have attrocities committed against them. If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck….etc.
