More Outrageous Clap Trap from Obama

Either in an attempt at deception or in absolute ignorance of our history, Obama quotes Thomas Jefferson on his hosting of the ambassador from Tunisia in 1796: “The United States has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Muslims.” What it didn’t have was completely ignored by the president. We had no navy at the time to enforce any sort of action against the piracy which ships under the stars and stripes were subject to in the Mediterranean Sea. This experience precipitated the birth of the United States Navy which came to be the universally recognized superior naval power of the world. As time went by we shortly did have a navy and straightened that lawless behavior out with the force of arms.

He then asserted that “Islam has always been a part of America’s story.” That is equivalent to claiming that a vicious thief who breaks into your house and harms your family then becomes part of your inner circle; not just it’s history. In a way, he is right, they are a part “of America’s story;” a vile, evil, episode in a precarious series stretching over two hundred years.

We presume that the ambassador from Morocco was a faithful Muslim. Why else would he choose Ramadan to visit the United States other than to put off the president? I submit that it was a calculated diplomatic move to soften a difficult situation. Other than that purpose, there would be no reason to leave hearth and home during that important time (to Muslims) on his calendar. The quotes above were lifted from the full text of a speech given in Cairo in 2009 and printed in total by the New York Times.

In a further quote from the Times, they said: “Noting that “Muslim Americans serve with honor in our military,” Mr. Obama said that at next week’s iftar at the Pentagon, “tribute will be paid to three soldiers who gave their lives in Iraq and now rest among the heroes of Arlington National Cemetery.”  May we assume that Major Hasan (a Muslim) who shot up the base down in Fort Hood, Texas was “serving with honor?” A blanket condemnation of all Muslims is pure foolishness. So, too, is the general assumption that no Muslims intend to do our people harm. How many Muslims must we apprehend for intent and actual harm to our people before we are permitted to make a few generalizations?

All of this was relative to the possible erection of a Muslim Community Center and Mosque at ground zero in New York. He claims to be standing clear of the issue until the city makes up its muddled mind. Hogwash! We all fully realize that it would be a dream come true for him. He could then report to his handlers that Sharia law is just around the corner—oops, it’s already creept in.

The most insulting remarks entailed his supposed view on freedom of religion. If it were a matter of concern one would think that his posture on abortion, sanctity of marriage, and other issues of importance to the vast majority of Americans would not be to intentionally go against the grain. Yes, Barry, we cling to our Bibles and the inherent truths therein even though you see that as a pejorative. We also believe that the rights protected in our sacred document, the US Constitution, are gifts from nature’s God. You may maintain that government is a substitute for God Almighty but it is not. Men come and go, as shall you, but He lives on and is above your pettiness. May He have mercy on your soul.

In His abiding love,

Cecil Moon
