The Obama spin is that the violent protests throughout the Middle East are not directed at the United States or U.S. policy but are a response to a YouTube video.
No, Mr. Obama. In the modern world, blasphemy is shrugged off. In the 9th century, it warrants mayhem. And in your administration, it’s cause for compromising a fundamental principle, the First Amendment. How dare you, your State Department or your press secretary try to imply a moral equivalence between a video (or maybe next time it will be a book, a film, a record or any other means of expression here in the U.S.) that might indeed be distasteful and reprehensible, and the slaughter of human beings, especially OUR fellow citizens.
Are you saying that free speech in THIS country that ‘offends’ someone in another country, gives cause to rationalize what we see unfolding today in the world, or a few days ago the murder of American patriots, or the video beheading of a hostage we see every now and then, or the frequent stoning of women we see so often? What we do here in America as free citizens is our business. Why don’t you suggest to Egypt and Libya and any other country in the Middle East that they cut off all media access and electronic communications from the the world so their people don’t have access to what we do and say here if they don’t like it?
No, Mr. Obama, what we are seeing is NOT the fault of an American citizen’s video. Rather, it is typical behavior from barbarians who screw goats and marry 6 year old girls and then rape them when they are 9 — all of which might even be perfectly acceptable behavior to the Democrat party who calls this the “religion of peace” and denies, curses and boos our Almighty God at their own Democratic national convention.
What IS the truth, is that if there was even a pretense of respect for you and an anxious fear of what the ferocious might of the American military would bring in retaliation for such events, we would not be seeing the displays we are witnessing these last few days.
It was three years ago in Cairo that you sought to appease the Arab world by apologizing for America — that is, by effectively apologizing for the notion that culture truly matters, and that Western values, traditions and principles are generally superior to those animating the seething, violently chaotic Middle East. You were wrong. The fact is, there’s a world of difference between a culture evolved over centuries to value tolerance, true justice and individual freedom, and a culture that harbors a dark vein of medievalist superstitions and hatreds, that rages against modernity.
You got a life lesson this week, Mr. Obama, now didn’t you: There is NO dealing with the 9th century. It can be held at arm’s length and beaten back when necessary, but it has nothing in common with the 21st century—that is, with civilization. You’ve been shoving that Muslim moonshine down the throats of Americans for 3-1/2 years, at every turn and opportunity. With any luck, you’re choking on some right now.
Before these souls are placed into the earth for delivery to God’s embrace, you should kneel at each one of those four caskets and ask for their forgiveness.
