Hundreds of bloggers tried to get the point across before the election: Obama experienced a clearly Muslim background while growing up and, present day, is, at the very least, a HUGE Muslim sympathizer or a closet-Muslim himself.
During the campaign anyone who talked about Obama’s Muslim roots or even used his middle name were lambasted by the Obama campaign and directly called “bitter clingers”.
and today, Obama claims that America is a Muslim nation:
In an interview with Laura Haim on Canal Plus, a French television station, Mr. Obama noted that the United States also could be considered as “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”…
Slap yourself…yes, eight years after 19 terrorists attacked us within our borders, we are now living in a country where our President not only has catered to radical Muslim nations and leaders (think hundred of millions of dollars to Palestinians and talking to Iran for starters), but now claims we are a large Muslim nation.
As a one blogger noted: “Obama, your roots are showing!”
Or on the topic of America as a Muslim Nation, Jihad Watch also says: “Is that an observation or a wish?”
As Michelle Malkin points out, we are not even close to being a “large” Muslim nation. Here is a link to a map of the top 10 largest Muslim nations in the world.
And statistics from Jihad Watch:
Indonesia: 200 million Muslims. India: 156 million Muslims. Pakistan: 150 million Muslims.
United States: 2.3 million Muslims (according to the Pew Research Center).
Now, in recent days and in preparation for Obama’s Middle East American Apology Tour, members of Obama’s administration and Obama himself have pointed out Obama’s sympathies and background rooted in Islam….some which contradict what Obama himself claimed during the campaign. From Jake Tapper at ABC:
During a conference call in preparation for President Obama’s trip to Cairo, Egypt, where he will address the Muslim world, deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications Denis McDonough said “the President himself experienced Islam on three continents before he was able to — or before he’s been able to visit, really, the heart of the Islamic world — you know, growing up in Indonesia, having a Muslim father — obviously Muslim Americans (are) a key part of Illinois and Chicago.”
This is what Obama claimed during the campaign:
The candidate’s comment at a Boca Raton, Florida, town hall meeting on May 22, 2008, was typical: “My father was basically agnostic, as far as I can tell, and I didn’t know him,” he said.
In September 2008, candidate Obama told a Pennsylvania crowd, “I know that I’m not your typical presidential candidate and I just want to be honest with you. I know that the temptation is to say, ‘You know what? The guy hasn’t been there that long in Washington. You know, he’s got a funny name. You know, we’re not sure about him.’ And that’s what the Republicans when they say this isn’t about issues, it’s about personalities, what they’re really saying is,‘We’re going to try to scare people about Barack. So we’re going to say that, you know, maybe he’s got Muslim connections.’…Just making stuff up.”
I’d say Obama is the one who was “just making stuff up.” And he continues to do so.
If you had any doubts about Obama’s Muslim roots and his sympathies to the Religion of Pieces Religion of Peace—then doubt no more! But also remember that as much as he connects with Islam, and despite his claims of ties to Christianity, Obama has as much disrespect for our Judeo-Christian roots as he does respect for the Islamic world.
This is the same President who said they following when speaking in Turkey in April:
…..”one of the great strengths of the United States” is that it does not consider itself “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 think modern Turkey was founded with a similar set of principles.”
Obama also said this….from Pundit and Pundette:
“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,” Obama said
Like Pundit and Pundette, I say “WHAT? HUH?” —– Not only did Obama diss his own JUDEO-CHRISTIAN nation in that line, but claims that Islam has “done so much for so many” over the centuries! I say he should ask all of those headless figures and those women with mutilated genitals what they think of all of that “good” Islam has contributed to the world!
My fellow citizens…we are in a country turned upside down. It’s been coming for a long time and has culminated in the election of our first anti-American, Marxist, Islamic-bred President. I’d say these times are monumental….pray for our country….and yes, even for our misguided President and his family.
