In the wake of another (attempted) Islamic terrorist attack on Americans, the Teleprompter-in-Chief gave a perfunctory, detached response. After 3 days of ‘dithering’ being “actively engaged on the incident behind the scenes”, he finally comes out with a half-assed statement insisting that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is an “isolated extemist”, who “allegedly tried to ignite an explosive device on his body”.
When Dr. George Tiller (an abortion doctor) was murdered as he attended church services, Obama was all over it:
“I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning. However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence.”
His attorney general, Eric Holder, added this:
“The murder of Doctor George Tiller is an abhorrent act of violence, and his family is in our thoughts and prayers at this tragic moment. The Department of Justice will work to bring the perpetrator of this crime to justice.”
Holder also “dispatched the U.S. Marshals Service to protect “appropriate people and facilities around the nation” in the wake of the murder of late-term abortion provider Dr. George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas on Sunday morning.”
When muslim convert Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad murdered Army Pvt. William A. Long and wounded Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula outside an Arkansas recruiting station, it took Obama two days to make this statement, void of shock or outrage:
“I am deeply saddened by this senseless act of violence against two brave young Soldiers who were doing their part to strengthen our armed forces and keep our country safe. I would like to wish Quinton Ezeagwula a speedy recovery, and to offer my condolences and prayers to William Long’s family as they mourn the loss of their son.”
Eric Holder issued this crap on Obama’s behalf:
“The president’s pledge for a new beginning between the United States and the Muslim community takes root here in the Justice Department where we are committed to using criminal and civil rights laws to protect Muslim Americans. A top priority of this Justice Department is a return to robust civil rights enforcement and outreach in defending religious freedoms and other fundamental rights of all of our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the housing market, in our schools and in the voting booth. … There are those who will continue to want to divide by fear — to pit our national security against our civil liberties — but that is a false choice. We have a solemn responsibility to protect our people while we also protect our principles.”
Not one fucking word about the Islamic terrorist-based murder, or the fact that what Muhammad did was an extention of his religion. Not. One. Fucking. Word.
He wasn’t too concerned over Nidal Malik Hasan murdering 13 fellow Soldiers at Ft. Hood, either.
He addressed the heinous act about 2 minutes, 25 seconds into his speech at a Department of the Interior conference, after he gave a “shout out” to Dr. Joe Medicine Crow. He summoned every ounce of courage he had to caution against “drawing conclusions.” He said, “We don’t know all the answers yet, and I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts.” He had no such hestitation when his good buddy Professor Henry Gates was arrested by Police Officer Jim Crowley. He made a swift dash to accuse the Officer of “acting stupidy” .
And he was not beneath prostituting the murders of the Ft. Hood Soldiers to push his ObamaCare agenda:
Obama invoked the Fort Hood shootings in an emotional appeal to Democrats to pass health care reform today, contrasting the sacrifices of Soldiers with political positioning.
So, who exactly gets the “extremist” treatment from his Obama-ness? Patriotic, fed-up Americans (Tea Party protesters) exercising their First Amendment rights, of course:
Obama, during his private pep talk to Democrats, recognized Mr. Owens election and then posed a question to the other lawmakers. According to Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, who supports the health care bill, the president asked, “Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit” Democratic voters “and it will encourage the extremists.”
Obama’s stance on muslim radical extremists was established years ago.
From The Audacity of Hope, page 261:
“In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
That “ugly direction” meaning retaliation for muslim atrocities and declaring war on the Islamic-nation states who brought Islamic-sponsored terrorism to our soil.
There’s a systematic pattern here:
He sided with the ousted Honduran dictator Mel Zelaya, gave a nod to the fraudulent re-election of despot Mahmoud Amadinejad in Iran, plays patty cake with North Korea’ s Kim Jong Il, and reneged on missile defense shields for Poland and the Czech Republic.
That’s his idea of “smart diplomacy”. Kiss the asses of our enemies and piss off our friends.
