Today, President Barack Obama delivered four pretty good paragraphs to the United Nations about the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, and the underlying principles of free speech and tolerance-of-minority-viewpoints it reflects. In the as-prepared transcript of the speech, the good material in question can be found starting with the sentence "I know there are some who ask why we don’t just ban such a video," and concluding with the accurate kicker, "There is no slander that provides an excuse for people to burn a restaurant in Lebanon, or destroy a school in Tunis, or cause death and destruction in Pakistan."
I would be inclined to quote more, if it weren't for the Obama administration's own sorry record of video apologetics and premature blamethese past two weeks, and for the fact that the president's welcome-if-overdue remarks today were bracketed by some assertions that can best be described as heinous. First, the noxious preamble:
In every country, there are those who find different religious beliefs threatening; in every culture, those who love freedom for themselves must ask how much they are willing to tolerate freedom for others.
That is what we saw play out the last two weeks, as a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity. It is an insult not only to Muslims, but to America as well – for as the city outside these walls makes clear, we are a country that has welcomed people of every race and religion. We are home to Muslims who worship across our country. We not only respect the freedom of religion – we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. We understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them.
Then, the worse postscript:
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied. Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shiite pilgrims.
And speaking of that favorite State Department word, rejected--isn't that a word to describe what you do to something that gets in your face, or body? In medicine, the body "rejects" organs or other dissonant substances that have been introduced within it. In basketball, not every blocked shot is a "rejection," mostly those that come when the offensive player is driving aggressively toward the vicinity of the hoop. Innocence of Muslimsdidn't get all up in someone's grill, it lay forlorn and neglected on YouTube until some people (pro and con) decided to get excited by it. Even then, it is a remarkably easy piece of culture to avoid coming into contact with. "Rejected" implies a cultural potency that "Sam Becile" (or as I prefer, "C'est imbecile") could never dream of.
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.
Considering that I consider the prophet of Islam a false prophet then I don't see that I am at fault when I express my feelings about him , nor about Islam , nor muslims , because they are out to murder everyone on earth that they can't persuade to join them . This is not conjecture , they remind us of it continuosly .. r,
Correct as correct can be !! Lest they hear and follow the Holy Bible and The Son of God. All muslims will burn just as mohammud.
Amen. You are absolutely correct and I stand with you.
Not only is he standing with the muslims but is working for them and gives full support. Plus giving top secrets to the muslims to kill our military...
Looks like Obama is at it again when it comes to protecting his Islamic Muslim brothers after speaking at the UN part 2and says that they must condemn those who slander the prophet of Islam. That shows you that Obama is a Muslim and as I said yesterday he will stand beside the Muslim people and not the white people. Looks like that what I said yesterday reigns through again today. If this person gets back in the WH the white people will suffer and there will be an American Holocaust after bringing all the Muslim people to America like he is going to do. It is time that the American people stuck up for their America and get this evil person and his evil corrupt staff out of our WH immediately. If we don't he is going to do Social Security cuts in Nov and his own Democrats are worried. So we better get with it and we only have 44 days to get him out before it is too late. I believe there could be some major voter fraud, so all service men that have retired and are no longer in the service to volunteer your time to help out at the polls to stop voter fraud, because I guarantee all of you if this happens we will be on the Muslim list for sure. So listen up people even though I know the Lord is in control he might allow these corrupt evil people to reign over us because of the thousands of people that have deserted the Lord and this might be the only way they will return to him is by what happens to all of us if Obama returns to the WH next year.
Rhonda, I totally agree with your statement that God may allow the evil to return to the White House. UNLESS His people who are called by HIS name humble themselves and ask for forgiveness and Pray... We will suffer because of those who refuse to be humbled and knell and pray to GOD to deliver us from this madness. We MUST VOTE SOLID REPUBLICAN if we are going to get anything at all done. We GET RID of the REED horror and we can get something done.
Of cause he stands with the Muslim....he is one himself. When will the American people wake up and realize that this man pulled the wool over our eyes and we were dumb enough to put him in the whitehouse even after we were warned of his phoney birth certificates and hidden records....that alone should have told us he was a fake and was hiding things from us. Now it is time to undo the harm we did four years ago and make things right by sending this phony back to Kenya. Want more proof of his muslim background...watch this video:
Exactly !! Why does the House sit so idly by and listen to and tolerate his actions?
....because the worthless politicians in the House get there strings pulled by the same people pulling the strings of the Socialists Democrats.....the CFR.
I suppose it is OK to slander Jesus Christ! If this does not convince our idiot electorate that he is a muslim, nothing will!
The only way we are going to beat this Muslim is to make sure we vote all republican come November...even if we don't like some of them....if we can get control of the house and senate....Obama does not stand a chance...we can even get him impeached if we have all the votes in both houses. So if you want to save our country...get out and talk people into voting republican.....let the candidates see that we the people have the last word!!! Thats the only way we will be able to overthrow Obama and his clowns. Its legal and it is our duty to take back our country and our rights. Just get outside and talk to everyone...we have to convince them it is the right thing to do.
