Barack Obama and Islam: Caliphate in Chief
Well, the first (and manifest) response to this question is that the Administration was attempting to cover up its anemic and downright pernicious foreign policy. A foreign policy constructed on a dogma of unfettered appeasement and endless a** kissing.
Such appeasement not only caused the deaths of four intrepid Americans -- but also allowed one (Ambassador Christopher Stevens) to be repeatedly ganged raped by the al Qaeda operatives that eventually murdered him.
(By the way--this type of sexual deviancy is common practice in the global Islamic community.)
But there is a second response that is just as obvious and viable as the first: The video narrative was pushed because Obama has a rabid and deep disdain for those who "slander" the Prophet Mohammed.
Lest we forget, while delivering a speech to the UN General Assembly in 2012 -- Obama ardently stated the following: "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."
Barack Hussein Obama pointed the finger of culpability at the video (yes, to cover up his foreign policy fecklessness)--but also to make the point that it is highly disrespectful to poke fun at Islam's prophet.
And to further underscore this point he has surrounded himself with individuals (such as Rashad Hussain) that very often resort to the outlandish in order to protect "Islamic sensibilities."
Hussain -- Obama's envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) -- just recently held talks with OIC officials in Saudi Arabia in order to draft a resolution to "prohibit Islamophobia."
Clearly, Obama has made it his quest to eradicate any and all humorous derision (and even critical analysis) of Islam and its "sacrosanct" prophet.
And, of course -- all of this comports with what Obama stated during his Cairo speech back in 2009 when he pledged to "fight against negative stereotypes of Islam."
Obama's indefatigable fight to protect Islam is what motivated him to call the 2009 Fort Hood shooting (by an Islamic terrorist shouting "Allah Akbar") "work place violence."
When one weighs the preponderance of evidence against Barack Obama -- with his unflinchingly steadfast and loyal defense of all things Islamic -- it certainly earns him the undisputed title of Caliphate in Chief.
