In 1964 the leftists in Hollywood saw fit to release the comedy Kisses For My President starring
Fred MacMurray and Polly Bergen. Bergen played the president and MacMurray played the hapless emasculated "First Lady", assuming the traditional duties of the first lady.
We almost experienced that nightmare with the candidacy of Hillary Clinton. Instead we got the first black metrosexual president. As an added bonus we seem to have a Muslim president as well.
All through the 2008 campaign we were told that any mentioned of Obama's middle name was verboten and somehow racist. How can a religion be a race? Just ask the Nazis. But I digress.
The first hint was when Obama had to be corrected by George Stephanopoulos on "This Week", when outlining his Christianity, accidentally said, "my Muslim faith."
The second hint that things were changing was when Obama used his middle name Hussein to take the oath of office.
The next hint was when Obama bowed to the Saudi king on his first Apology Tour in February.
Well, the cat's out of the bag now. Obama is fully in touch with his Muslim roots and he wants to share it with the world.
On June 02, 2009 ABC News' Jake Tapper and Sunlen Miller reported:
During a conference call in preparation for President Obama's trip to Cairo, Egypt, where he will address the Muslim world, deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications Denis McDonough said "the President himself experienced Islam on three continents before he was able to -- or before he's been able to visit, really, the heart of the Islamic world -- you know, growing up in Indonesia, having a Muslim father -- obviously Muslim Americans (are) a key part of Illinois and Chicago."
With insane rumors suggesting he was some sort of Muslim Manchurian candidate, then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and his campaign did everything they could to emphasize his Christianity and de-emphasize the fact that his father, Barack Obama Sr., was born Muslim.
The candidate's comment at a Boca Raton, Florida, town hall meeting on May 22, 2008, was typical: "My father was basically agnostic, as far as I can tell, and I didn't know him," he said.
On the eve of our Fraudinator-in-Chief's Apology Tour Part Deux to the Middle East the NY Times reported that the government "accidentally" posted on the internet a list of all civilian nuclear sites and their activities in the United States.
The 266-page document was published on May 6 as a transmission from President Barack Obama to the U.S. Congress. According to the document, the list was required by law and will be provided to the International Atomic Energy Agency.
Some of the pages are marked "highly confidential safeguards sensitive."
Accidents like that don't happen by accident.
Then there is the openly hostile stance against Israel in terms of it's right to defend itself and new settlements on the West Bank.
There is the Obama's tilt towards Iran...Obama has given the OK for nuclear development provided that it's not used for military purposes. Iran sits on a sea of oil and natural gas and they need nuclear energy? The United States sits
on a sea of oil and natural gas and we are prevented from drilling and building nuclear power plants. North Korea conned us with the same nuclear energy argument and they just exploded a nuclear device.
And now we, the United States, according to Barack Hussein Obama, are Muslim country, one of the largest in the world.
Writes Toby Harnden at the London Telegraph:
So that's once, twice, three times a Muslim?
Just in case the Arab world hasn't yet got this message of inbuilt tolerance, Mr Obama himself has gone a step further. In an interview with France's Canal Plus released on Tuesday evening, he suggested that the United States might be a Muslim country.
Obama said he wanted to "create a better dialogue so that the Muslim world understands more effectively how the United States but also how the West thinks about many of these difficult issues like terrorism, like democracy, to discuss the framework for what's happened in Iraq and Afghanistan and our outreach to Iran, and also how we view the prospects for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians".
So far, so blah - President George W. Bush often expressed much the same sentiments.
But then, as is his habit , Obama turned the concept around. "Now, the flip side is I think that the United States and the West generally, we have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam.
"And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. And so there's got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples."
Obama said in Turkey that Americans "do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation". John McCain was criticised in 2007 for saying the US was "a Christian nation", later amending this to "a Judeo-Christian valued nation".
Of course, the concept of separation of church and state, which derived from the First Amendment to the Constitution, means that the US is not officially a Christian nation or a nation of any other particular religion. Which means, I suppose, that the US is as much a Muslim nation as a Christian one.
So what's next..dhimmi taxes for the infidels, Sharia compliant financing? Will Barack Hussein Obama take the mask off and pronounce his faith as a Muslim when the time is right?
All of the moves Obama has made since taking office, the overspending which will wreck the economy, the constant apologizing to our enemies which makes us look weak, from the point of view of a patriot seem wrong-headed, naive, frustrating and just plain stupid. But we are told that he is not a stupid man.
When looked at as deliberate steps designed to undermine our national security and morale, and given his new-found embrace of Islam, everything makes perfect sense.
The Manchurian Candidate theory, dismissed as the ravings of right wing loons by the left and the state-controlled media, is starting to look more and more plausible.
Excerpted from Imam Obama's speech in Cairo:
Part of this conviction is rooted in my own experience. I am a Christian, but my father came from a Kenyan family that includes generations of Muslims. As a boy, I spent several years in Indonesia and heard the call of the azaan at the break of dawn and the fall of dusk. As a young man, I worked in Chicago communities where many found dignity and peace in their Muslim faith. As a student of history, I also know civilization's debt to Islam. It was Islam - at places like Al-Azhar University - that carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europe's Renaissance and Enlightenment. It was innovation in Muslim communities that developed the order of algebra; our magnetic compass and tools of navigation; our mastery of pens and printing; our understanding of how disease spreads and how it can be healed. Islamic culture has given us majestic arches and soaring spires; timeless poetry and cherished music; elegant calligraphy and places of peaceful contemplation. And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.
I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America's story. The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco. In signing the Treaty of Tripoli in 1796, our second President John Adams wrote, "The United States has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Muslims." And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States. They have fought in our wars, served in government, stood for civil rights, started businesses, taught at our Universities, excelled in our sports arenas, won Nobel Prizes, built our tallest building, and lit the Olympic Torch. And when the first Muslim-American was recently elected to Congress, he took the oath to defend our Constitution using the same Holy Koran that one of our Founding Fathers - Thomas Jefferson - kept in his personal library.
So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed. That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn't. And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.
So let there be no doubt: Islam is a part of America. And I believe that America holds within her the truth that regardless of race, religion, or station in life, all of us share common aspirations - to live in peace and security; to get an education and to work with dignity; to love our families, our communities, and our God. These things we share. This is the hope of all humanity.
Well yeah...Islam is part of America now that we are bending over backwards to accomodate every idiotic aggrieved demand from organizations like CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) and every other nutbag Islamic special interest group.
