Perception.


Much has been made of this picture of Obama in Somali attire. I was far more offended by Pelosi trying to suck up to Assad with the headscarf than Obama donning native dress but Obama’s reaction highlights what I want to point out in this post. His campaign manager accused Hillary’s campaign of “the most shameful, offensive fear-mongering we’ve seen from either party in this election”. Welcome to the machine. The inference of course is that people will perceive Obama as a Muslim. Stupid E-Mails notwithstanding, Obama is not a Muslim. Truth be told I would be more comfortable if he was attending a main stream Mosque than Reverand Jeremiah Wright’s Church of Hate the White Man.


Mr. and Mrs. Obama’s Pastor and mentor of twenty years has opinions of America that are in lockstep with the Jihadists.

The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people.

After 9/11

We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost.

As does his opinion of Israel.

The Israelis have illegally occupied Palestinian territories for over 40 years now,” Wright has said. “Divestment has now hit the table again as a strategy to wake the business community and wake up Americans concerning the injustice and the racism under which the Palestinians have lived because of Zionism.

Other Obama advisors like Zbigniew Brzezinski, Robert Mally, and Samantha Power also reinforce this anti-Isreal attitude.

Back to Obama’s Muslimhood. His father was a Muslim. Obama was not raised in the Muslim Religion. To most in the Middle East if your father was a Muslim, guess what? Yes Virginia, you must believe in Mohammed weather you like it or not. To not do so makes you an apostate and puts you under sentence of death. Nothing else is pertanant from the Jihadist point of view other than that Obama’s father was Muslim and therefore ipso facto, so is Obama. How that will be used by Mullahs to manipulate the Muslim street depends on their needs at the time. In fairness how the Mullahs react to Hillary, a woman, (no really), also depends on their needs but in Hillary’s case they can only go negative.

Of a far graver concern is how the Jihadists will view a pullout of Iraq. Rep. Steve King has taken allot of heat for saying “The radical Islamists, the al-Qaeda ... would be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on Sept. 11 because they would declare victory in this war on terror.” Is he wrong? Iran will certainly declare victory because they will have won. Sadr’s still out there as is his Mahdi militia. He will certainly have reason to declare victory. Sunni countries like Saudi Arabia and progressive countries like the UAE will have reason fear. Al Qaeda in Iraq is finished and is struggling in Afghanistan and Pakistan, nevertheless they will not only declare victory but also take credit for it. The Taliban will get a sudden influx of Jihadists since the main battlefield will become Afghanistan; also Obama is hostile towards Musharraf’s regime. Security has already been compromised because of failure to pass a new surveillance bill, Obama would continue to press for terrorists right to privacy as well as pacify the trial lawyers. All in all, a victory for Obama will be perceived as a victory for radical Islam, not just by the terrorist but by me. I will not be dancing in the streets however; I’ll be locked and loaded.

And Obama's speech didn't mollify me. I still don't like him. He's much to "progressive" for me. And how did the term progressive get co-opted by people who demand less freedom? That doesn't sound like progress to me.

Progress towards socialism. BTW the Black Liberation Theology is very Marxist. The speech worked well enough for the Kool-aid drinkers, unless Hillary steals the nomination BHO is our next President.

I am with you, the Muslim thing is not as Pelosi with the headscarf.

But the Trinity church and its loyalty to the mother country DOES concern me. I do not believe that Obama gives a crap about America and if elected will prove me correct.

AND I sadly agree...the options for president are pathetic...what the heck happened?

Our choices are like bad, worse and completely pathetic, all on the first presidential campaign that my oldest will be able to vote in...

oh well...

Missed ya.
