Not as bad as Ahmadinejad, but he’s a tough act to follow.
From the transcript at the National Journal.
……If we are serious about upholding these ideals, it will not be enough to put more guards in front of an Embassy; or to put out statements of regret, and wait for the outrage to pass. If we are serious about those ideals, we must speak honestly about the deeper causes of this crisis. Because we face a choice between the forces that would drive us apart, and the hopes we hold in common.
……”True democracy demands that citizens cannot be thrown in jail because of what they believe…”
……“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.
Except that muslims don’t respect freedom, humanity, or tolerance. That’s the deeper cause of this crisis. The “outrage” was sparked by a pre-planned wave of attacks from Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, not a poorly-made obscure video. And about taking offense to the anti-Islamic film: Most Americans couldn’t care less about ‘offending’ the sensibilities of perpetually outraged towel heads who use their theocracy as a reason to commit atrocities.
Speaking of free speech and “insults”, Obama co-sponsored a resolution with Egypt at the UN Human Rights Council in 2009 that would allow Islamist governments to ban such videos. He also had Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the producer of the video, arrested by the Feds in a clear attempt to intimidate and silence him.
Free speech depends on what Obama says it is.
According to B. Hussein, who does the future belong to?
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.
Really? When was the last time Christians, Jews, ‘infidels’ and unbelievers reciprocated and meted out some payback for all of the atrocities and the defamation at the hands of muslims? I’m not talking about the usual protest, demonstration, lighting up a koran, and verbal hell raising. I mean burning down some mosques, a few bombings, and maybe a little beheading or two. Something that would get under Obama’s Dhimmi skin for a change.
Radical muslims are the ones carrying out all of the violence and all he can do is trivialize their victims’ anger; the embassy attack in Libya wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for ‘intolerance’. There’s no fucking similarity between mocking a 7th Century lunatic prophet and the Holocaust.
“The events of the last two weeks speak to the need for all of us to address honestly the tensions between the West and an Arab World moving to democracy”.
An Arab World moving to democracy?? He is one clueless ass.
The Tough Guy says he’s going to stop Iran from getting nukes:
“America wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy, and we believe that there is still time and space to do so. But that time is not unlimited…“Make no mistake: a nuclear-armed Iran is not a challenge that can be contained. It would threaten the elimination of Israel the security of Gulf nations, and the stability of the global economy. It risks triggering a nuclear-arms race in the region, and the unraveling of the non-proliferation treaty.”
Except that Iran doesn’t honor the goddamned non-proliferation treaty, anyway. And Obama is still doing the ‘negotiation without preconditions’. The Iranian mullahs thumb their noses at the world every time they announce another development in their weapons program.
The world wide attacks by ‘tolerant’ muslims don’t faze Obama a bit. Which makes the coming election that much more important.
