So, there were the murders of Charlie Hebdo people by Islamofascist terrorists last week and Obama did nothing except send John Kerry and James Taylor to sing a song to France…and once again, the media cries for a few days and then rapidly starts to roll it up to stifle any discussion and to flush the event down the memory hole.
Just to show that this is nothing new, I wrote what follows in September of 2012…
Welcome to the new state sponsored religion.
There is perhaps no better example of the fecklessness and mendacity of the Democrats, the “progressives” and their other fellow travelers than the handling of the current situation in the Middle East and the assaults on our embassies, consulates and diplomatic corps stationed there.
Their position is clear. There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger…and it is the job of the Obama administration to protect the new state sponsored religion.
Christians in America have been called “bitter clingers” by our president, we are assailed on our position on abortion, the Catholic church suffers a full frontal assault from the Obama administration for its teachings on contraception, references to the God of Christians (and all mankind) is voted against by at least half of the delegates (perhaps more) at the recent Democratic National Convention and leftists on this very site have called God a myth and Christian beliefs ridiculous…and yet these very people have the temerity to support statements like these that were issued by official representatives of the American people:
The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.
That was the first statement from the Cairo Embassy. It is now scrubbed from the website and was replaced by this one:
The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.
Just exactly what does “abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others” mean?
In this context, it means that there should be restrictions on free speech. This statement implies that there should be controls placed on thoughts and opinion and that the government has the right to establish what those thoughts can be, especially where Islam is concerned.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tweeted:
The U.S. deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.
Gee. Wouldn’t that be great if the political left was that sensitive toward Christianity?
Remember the infamous Robert Mapplethorpe and Piss Christ?
I don’t remember Christians burning consulates or killing ambassadors.
Screw the Constitution, right?
Mike Barnicle and Donny Deutsch discussed Pastor Terry Jones on MSNBC. Apparently, if Muslims kill people over how the Prophet Muhammad is portrayed in a film produced in the United States, The Department of Justice should now prosecute them.
MIKE BARNICLE: Given this supposed minister’s role in last year’s riots in Afghanistan, where people died, and given his apparent or his alleged role in this film, where, not yet nailed down, but at least one American, perhaps the American ambassador is dead, it might be time for the Department of Justice to start viewing his role as an accessory before or after the fact.
DONNY DEUTSCH: I was thinking the same thing, yeah.
Free speech. Don’t sweat it if it goes away, it’s for losers anyway.
There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger…and it is the job of the Obama administration to protect the new state sponsored religion.
