“Obama rips ‘bigotry’ and ‘xenophobia’ with Ramadan message”

Nolan D. McCaskill at Politico.com:

President Barack Obama sent a message to Donald Trump on Wednesday in a statement marking the end of Ramadan, calling on Americans to renew their commitment to protecting Muslim Americans against bigotry and xenophobia.

Obama seems to want to teach Americans to like Islam whether they want to or not.

Nancy Reagan famously said “Kinder than who?” in response to GHW Bush’s “kinder, gentler nation” remark in his 1988 RNC acceptance speech. In Obama’s case we might ask, “Bigotry and xenophobia” from whom? That’s a rhetorical question, BTW.

  1. Obama really has the Muslim thing in his soul. I guess it comes from his childhood in mosques in Indonesia.

    He really is a foreigner at heart. He does not understand America.

    I think he does understand Progressives, though.

  2. “I guess it comes from his childhood in mosques in Indonesia.” The Jesuits had the same idea.

  3. “Far too many Muslims may not be able to observe Ramadan from the comfort of their own homes this year or afford to celebrate Eid with their children,” he said. “We must continue working together to alleviate the suffering of these individuals.”

    Islamic terrorists killed at least 450 innocent people across several continents during the 2016 “holy” month. The biggest obstacle Muslims have to observing Ramadan is death at the hands of their fellow believers.

    FBI 2013 Hate Crime Statistics:

    Of the 1,223 victims of anti-religious hate crimes:

    60.3 percent were victims of crimes motivated by their offenders’ anti-Jewish bias.
    13.7 percent were victims of anti-Islamic (Muslim) bias.

    6.1 percent were victims of anti-Catholic bias.
    4.3 percent were victims of bias against groups of individuals of varying religions (anti-multiple religions, group).
    3.8 percent were victims of anti-Protestant bias.
    0.6 percent were victims of anti-Atheist/Agnostic bias.
    11.2 percent were victims of bias against other religions (anti-other religion). (Based

    The FBI informs us that there are over four times more hate crimes committed against Jews than against Muslims. Perhaps the way to get President Obama to “call on Americans to renew their commitment to protecting Jewish Americans against bigotry and xenophobia” is to have some crazed Hadasim start machine-gunning Gentiles.


  5. It’s like he’s a parent trying to make a recalcitrant child eat lima beans, or creamed spinach. “Muslims are humble, peace-loving, incredibly cultured people … you must like them, you simply must like them, or else you’re just going to have to sit here until you do, you nasty red-neck bigots!”

    And we’re sitting here, mutinously refusing, and muttering, “No, and you can’t make us!”

  6. Progressive ideology demands that white, Christian, middle class Americans are the only hate-filled, intolerant, racist, xenophobic, violently dangerous oppressors in the world.

    Everybody else, including muslims, are the victims of oppressive white Christian capitalism, and are therefore exempt from any legitimate criticism, nor are they ever responsible in any real sense for the excesses which some of their group might commit.

    People keep wondering how the leader of the current regime and his lackeys can say and do these things that are so wildly out of touch with our common experience, and find evil only in our own society and people, but never in our opponents.

    But, dear indignant ones, that is exactly what progressive ideology teaches, is built on, and believes is an accurate analysis of every possible situation.

    It is long past time to stop being gob-smacked every fifteen minutes by the latest “incomprehensible fantasy” emanating from this bunch, and listen to what the progs have been saying very clearly and openly for the last hundred years—

    They hate this country, they hate its economic and political and social and cultural systems, and they hate you, with a visceral depth of utter hatred that most sane people would only experience when confronting a child rapist or some other equally despicable criminal.

    Once you finally comprehend that the elite feel about you every bit as you feel about someone who molests children, maybe then you can stop being astounded and start doing every possible thing you can do and say to prevent them from continuing to implement their destructive program, and to begin removing them from their undeserved positions of power and influence, and dismantling the house of cards they have built in an attempt to replace the foundations this nation was built upon.

    This delusional nonsense about how the poor muslims are suffering so much oppression and discrimination is just one of the manifestations of an ideology that is deluded, vicious, and utterly disconnected from the reality of the world we all have to live in each day.

    Venezuela, or Cuba, or N. Korea, are not anomalies—they are the only possible result of the collectivist “vision” for humanity.

    Reject it. Completely. Without any extension of good will or tolerance or common decency towards it proponents.

    They have none towards you.

  7. Obama is a charlatan who has killed more innocent Muslims worldwide than Trump ever dreamed of. Not only that his ratings in the Muslim
    world are about as poor as were Bush’s. They do not approve of drone bombing recklessly nor of any Obama-sponsored occupation continuing in
    Afghanistan, if you check the polls of Afghanis.

    Oh, and Israel? Ask the Palestinians what Obama has done there except retreating from every request he placed on Netanyahu and replenishing their Iron Dome to the tune of
    millions of US taxpayer dollars.

    Only in Zionist Lobby ruled America where there is a glutton for revenge and resistance punishment (well, not so much anymore after the Iraq/Afghan quagmires,)
    could Obama be objectively viewed as a crypto-Muslim.

  8. I wish I could find that radio interview with the woman that hung out with him as a teen in Hawaii. Most of it was about who he hung out with in those days, and how that contrasts with the nature of his present marital status. That’s pretty much common knowledge now, but what I found most interesting was her describing what a conniver he was, always trying to hustle somebody. She used the example of him bumming cigarettes, that he didn’t really need them, would do it just to test people, mess with them…

    He’s probably about as muslim as my cat, but islam is that latest tool du jour. Remember how college girls were wearing those peaked Vietnamese hats in the sixties and seventies? I do, I remember one in particular that went to cut sugar cane in Cuba. I’ll bet in the 1800’s there were ardent followers of the Apache at Harvard as well, despite the stomach churning evidence available.


  9. Like “Xenophobia” is a bad thing. If I recall (from reading “The Anabasis” along with Chicagoboyz) Xenophon had plenty to be paranoid about, after the Persians ambushed/killed the (50?) Greek leaders at a “friendly” truce/dinner, he was stranded a thousand miles from home, surrounded by enemies. These days we have plenty to be paranoid about ourselves. It is reasonable to be Xenophobic about Izlam and the foreigner(s) in DC.

    I’ve always thought … crypto-American. What a creep.

    Interesting observation. I wonder when wealthy wannabes first started aping the fashions of Mau Mau-ers. At least as far back as the French Revolution I suppose.

    Members of the ruling classes were also among the movement’s leading figures, and the group heavily influenced the politics, clothing, and arts of the period. They emerged from the muscadins, a term for dandyish anti-Jacobin street gangs in Paris from 1793 who were important politically for some two years; the terms are often used interchangeably, though the muscadins were of a lower social background, being largely middle-class.

  11. Thank you, VeryRetired, for putting my thoughts and feelings into such succinct and eloquent words. The Progressives do hate us, and the sooner We The People understand that and get them out of positions of power and influence, the better off this country will be.
