The condescending liberal media believes that a large portion of the American public is ignorant due to the recent poll indicating that almost 1 in 5 Americans believe that Obama is a Muslim. This attitude by the establishment media is not surprising since they’re angry over the fact that the American people don’t just swallow what’s on the news as pure fact. They are angry that Americans can think for themselves, especially when questions over Obama’s faith are so obvious. The apologists in the mainstream media have pretended that Obama is in fact a Christian without fully scrutinizing these claims, but the president’s actions speak for themselves. I believe and have believed that Obama is not being truthful when it comes to matters of personal faith and while I want to hold him to his word that he is a Christian, Obama seems to have a powerful affection for Islam and a thorough aversion to Christianity. This fact has not been lost on the American people and is the source of the idea that Obama is Muslim, but many in the mainstream media like to point at their ideological foes, at conservatives, independents, and anyone who does not simply accept as absolute truth the dicta of the so-called “progressive” ideology, and claim that it is misinformation by the “new media,” talk radio, and Republicans. This cannot be further from the truth, especially since the mainstream media is so named due to their omnipresence in American society. From the non-stop vilification of the regular folks who attend Tea Party rallies to the near-deafening insistence that the world’s woes are a direct result of previous conservative policies, the mainstream media has made misinformation into a veritable science. Regardless of the pro-Obama media’s assertions, the ultimate source of misconception over Obama’s faith is Obama’s actions when it comes to religion.
When I refer to Obama’s affection for Islam, I mean that Obama loves Islam, in the political sense of the word love. From the beginning of his candidacy, Obama has made it a point to highlight certain elements from his childhood for political gain and hide others. While mentioning his Indonesian upbringing as some sort of qualification on foreign policy issues, he does not mention the fact that he was registered at the schools he attended as a Muslim and therefore was subject to the Islamic religion class as were the other Muslim students (the majority, at least in the public school he attended). In other words, Obama sat through class being taught about Islam, Mohammed, and the Koran while in public he omits any mention of these experiences (though he writes a little about them in his books). Here is a video that talks about these things, it has been around for a while but it is as relevant as ever given today’s headlines:
He professes that the sound of the Muslim call to prayer is one of the “prettiest sounds on Earth,” and that his time in Indonesia was filled with fond memories. His love of Islam starts at an early age and only grows with time. From his immersion in the writings of Malcolm X aka Malik Shabazz, his association with an alleged member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization and anti-Israel professor Rashid Khalidi, his shady links to Dr. Khalid al-Mansour who helped him get into Harvard, his apology speech to the Muslim world in Cairo, his deep bow to the king of Saudi Arabia, all the way to his recent comments giving a figurative nod to those wanting to build erect a mosque near Ground Zero, is it any wonder that so many Americans consider him a Muslim? According to the poll, 10% of Democrats think he is Muslim. His own party doubts his claims of being Christian, especially when one sees how Obama practices his supposed Christian faith.
In addition to the points made in the video above, about Obama’s view that Jesus Christ is not the savior of humanity, in an interview about his faith he artfully dodges a question about him always being a Christian, and I quote:
Have you always been a Christian?
I was raised more by my mother and my mother was Christian.”
Since he did not answer the question, we can only speculate as to whether he was Muslim before and later converted, was Muslim and never converted, etc. The lack of clarity on the question of faith, made crystal clear by the recent White House statement that Obama “doesn’t wear it on his sleeve,” gives rational obervers the impression that he is not a Christian and if he is, then he is not a practicing one. His cancellation of the National Day of Prayer event at the White House further chips away at the Judeo-Christian heritage of this country. On the other hand, the president observed the start of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month, hosting a dinner and delivering a statement. The question is, why ignore an interfaith national day of prayer while actively participating in a specific faith’s (Islam’s) start of their holy month?
This behavior by the president makes it unclear as to whether he is Christian or Muslim. Ultimately, his actions show such a strong affinity, such powerful affection for Islam, that regardless of his actual religious beliefs, we can continue to expect Barack Obama to favor Global Islam over the United States of America.
I close with a video from the infamous Mu’ammar al-Qadhafi where the dictator says same very troubling things about our current president, not limited to the fact that he is Muslim but that Obama’s plans are in fact more sinister than he lets on.
