Dr. Ben Carson’s comments about a hypothetical Muslim presidential candidate and a vocal attendee at a Donald Trump rally have opened the old debate about Barack Obama’s loyalties as they relate to America and Islam. Right on cue, the Islamic grievance lobby has jumped into the fray, demanding Carson withdraw from the race and lecturing America on its purported Islamophobia. The issue was the big thing at the dawn of the Obama administration, when his Muslim heritage caused many to worry that he had a stealth agenda. With Obama’s reign of terror approaching its final year and his track record in place, this is as good a time as any to reassess the question.
Liberals love to spout faux outrage whenever Obama’s detractors bring up the Muslim question, but it misses the elephant in the Oval Office. It doesn’t matter if Obama sees himself as a Christian, Muslim, Quaker or Jehovah’s Witness. Obama governs as if he were a Muslim, and that’s really all that matters.
Just imagine a scenario where the masterminds of al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS got together, groomed the perfect Manchurian candidate and got him elected president of the United States. We might see something along the lines of:
— The president’s newly-appointed NASA administrator saying in an interview that his boss told him the most important objective for the space agency was to make Muslims feel good about their historic contribution to science, math and engineering;
— The president speaking to George Stephanopolous and making a Freudian slip by referring to his “Muslim faith”;
— Calling the Muslim call to prayer “the prettiest sound on Earth”;
— A president who makes Georgetown and Notre Dame to cover Christian symbols when he spoke there, but made no such request when appearing in Islamic venues;
— Being in such a hurry to get U.S. troops out of Iraq it created a vacuum that bloodthirsty ISIS savages were more than happy to fill;
— Broke the Powell Doctrine in Libya (“you break it, you own it”) and turned a stable situation into a lawless, Islamist wonderland;
— Running interference for ISIS atrocities by reminding us that Crusaders committed similar acts–almost a millennia ago; and
— Pushing through a nuclear weapons deal for Iran that all but guarantees weapons of mass destruction to a hardline Islamic theocracy that has “Death to America” as its motto.
You get the idea. And those are just the highlights. It is completely irrelevant which religion Obama identifies with. That’s just a phony argument to equate Obama critics with conspiracy theorists. The president can claim to be a devout member of Jeremiah Wright’s church (is that really better?) The fact is that the Obama administration has been a reality that radical Islam previously only dreamed about.
