Remember not too long ago, in remarks before the National Prayer Breakfast how President Barack Hussein Obama slammed Christianity for things that occurred generations – even centuries – ago? Slavery, the Inquisition, Jim Crow, the Crusades. All the fault of Christians and especially those Christians that dare question radicalized Islam.
How is it that Barack Hussein Obama can emerge from talks with Raul Castro and then publicly, in a press conference, concur with Castro’s complaints against the United States for things that happened “before I was” born, to borrow Obama’s own words?
It goes without saying that Obama would like to distance himself from whatever those perceived American sins are. And at this point in his administration, Obama’s willingness to dismiss the sins of the Castro regime — although it is helpful to remember that those sins include politically directed mass murder, especially the kind
perpetrated by Che Guevara. Obama, like all leftists, prefers to seek some moral equilibrium by accentuating the things America has done and turning a blind eye towards the things nations like Cuba have done. A leveling of the moral playing field, if you will.
What’s curious in both cases are those he seeks a level playing field for. In the case of Islam, he’s not holding up Egyptian President Morsi for his impassioned plea requesting an Islamic Reformation. He’s instead seeking to blunt criticism of the Islamic State and Iran. In the case of our own hemisphere, he’s deliberately championing one of the few Marxist hold outs instead of praising those Latin American countries that have chosen to strive towards democratic, liberty-loving forms of government.
In other words, his track record consistently favors those cultures and forms of government directly at odds with our own. What does this tell us about this man?
