It is incredible and disgustingly sad at the same time that the American people are not completely turned off by this guy even though some of Obama’s comments are actually reported in the main stream press.
While his trip to Europe is viewed as the second coming, Obama’s stance on foreign policy issues of importance go largely unabsorbed by infertile minds.
For example, in acknowledging the devastating blow inflicted upon the United States on 9/11, Obama said the 9-11 attacks were carried out because of al Qaeda’s lack of "empathy" for the suffering of others. Can you imagine, these ruthless sub-humans have a lack of "empathy" which is the reason why they kill innocents, chop off heads and sacrifice children’s’ lives?
Messiah Obama also said after 9/11 that al Qaeda’s terrorist ideology "grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair." In essence, we are responsible for the suicide killing of thousands of Americans on U.S. soil because we have done nothing to alleviate "poverty", "helplessness" and "despair" of the terrorist Cretans. The fact that Islamists want to take over the world for a future Caliphate, and are willing to kill and do anything else they can think of to achieve that goal, is unknown to Obama – or he chooses to ignore it.
WorldNet Daily reminds us "Obama went on to imply the September 11th attacks were in part a result of U.S. policy, lecturing the American military to minimize civilian casualties in the Middle East and urging action opposing ‘bigotry or discrimination directed against neighbors and friends of Middle-Eastern descent’."
"Even as I hope for some measure of peace and comfort to the bereaved families, I must also hope that we, as a nation, draw some measure of wisdom from this tragedy,’ Obama wrote in a piece about 9-11 published on Sept. 19, 2001, in Chicago's Hyde Park Herald."
Is this the person Americans want to lead the nation as we battle for survival against an implacable enemy bent on killing and destroying our country?
If you are still not convinced we should not place our trust in Obama, here is more of the liberal drivel the Democrat presidential candidate spews on us:
"We must also engage, however, in the more difficult task of understanding the sources of such madness. The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the attackers: an inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity or suffering of others. Such a failure of empathy, such numbness to the pain of a child or the desperation of a parent is not innate; nor, history tells us, is it unique to a particular culture, religion or ethnicity. It may find expression in a particular brand of violence; it may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics."
"Most often, though, it grows out a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair."
"We will have to make sure, despite our rage, that any U.S. military action takes into account the lives of innocent civilians abroad. We will have to be unwavering in opposing bigotry or discrimination directed against neighbors and friends of Middle-Eastern descent. Finally, we will have to devote far more attention to the monumental task of raising the hopes and prospects of embittered children across the globe – children not just in the Middle East, but also in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and within our own shores."
As like other liberals, Obama believes that our enemies can be dissuaded from killing innocent people and inciting resurrection where ever possible by understanding "the root causes" of their actions and treating them as poor innocents who lacked love as children while they lived in poverty "across the globe". Without doubt this thinking is behind Obama’s desire to smoke the peace pipe with Iranian thugs and maybe hold a love-in "without preconditions" so they may succumb to his messianic message of "change". Diplomacy will somehow change the hearts and minds of those who would slit his throat without any qualm under different circumstances.
Thank God for the internet; only there is the truth available since the main stream press doesn’t want Americans to know the character and beliefs of the person chosen to be the next U.S. president. We got to see the cover of the New Yorker magazine which aptly described the next first couple; Michelle Obama in terrorist fatigues and AK-47, the future president dressed as a Muslim, the American flag burning in the background and a picture of the other "Osama" (bin Laden) hanging on the wall in the oval office. Of course this was not editorial comment by the liberal magazine; it just accidentally described the true nature of these two and their arrogance about the intellect of the folks.
Michelle Malkin in her usual excellent style wrote in National Review Online:
"Is this man for real? Osama bin Laden’s murderous legions are plenty able to 'imagine' the 'suffering of others.' Go watch an al-Qaeda beheading snuff video. Just Google it or surf You Tube. Imagining the suffering of infidels is covered amply in basic Jihadi Training 101."
Robert Spencer, director of the Jihad Watch website, also had it right:
"What Obama could not, and apparently cannot, allow himself to do is to investigate the nature of Islam, to find out what it teaches about Believers and Infidels. I can help out a bit. I can tell him, right now, right here, that Islam is based on a clear division of the universe between Believers and Infidels."
Abe Greenwald in Commentary Magazine wrote, "[P]overty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.' Strange, considering our attackers were wealthy and educated, connected and ecstatic. You know, if Obama is going to keep ex-terrorists around, he should at least utilize them. He could have asked Bill Ayers, 'Bill, did your 'failure of empathy' stem from your impoverished upbringing as the son of the CEO of Commonwealth Edison?"
Last year WorldNet Daily conducted an interview with am unsuccessful suicide bomber and inquired if the terrorist act he wanted to commit was due to his desperation out of living in poor conditions. No that was not the case said the disciple of jihad; he was persuaded to do this to "satisfy Allah and his instructions. No money interests, nothing. No brainwash, no pressure; it is my decision."
"[It] became stronger when I understood what status I will have in heaven if I scarify myself for Allah."
When asked about media reporting Palestinian suicide attackers are acting in response to occupation or poor living conditions, the defender of Allah said those media claims are "lies" and "Israeli propaganda."
Wakeup America! We must not put Barack Hussein Obama in the Whitehouse; our lives and the life of the country as we know it is in the balance.
