Chuck him out 4

Obama supports the plan to build a mosque, an Islamic victory monument, where Muslims slaughtered thousand of Americans. He made this clear last night, addressing Muslims while celebrating a Muslim feast. (Find the transcript of his speech here.) He could have used the occasion to ask the planners not to do this profoundly offensive thing. Instead he preached that America’s traditional and constitutional principle of religious tolerance demands that the mosque be built, implying that only bigots could object to it.

The 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center was carried out in the name of Islam, a cruel, intolerant, and aggressive religion.

By violently attacking the WTC and the Pentagon, Islam declared war on the United States of America.

In this continuing war, the elected president of  the United States has shown himself plainly to be on the side of his country’s enemy.

He has now explicitly demonstrated what his words and actions have long suggested, that he has a deep sympathy for Islam and a concomitant antipathy for America.

In response to President Obama’s declaration, Debra Burlingame of 9/11 Families for a Safe and Strong America issued a statement of which this is part:

Barack Obama has abandoned America at the place where America’s heart was broken nine years ago, and where her true values were on display for all to see. Since that dark day, Americans have been asked to bear the burden of defending those values, again and again and again. Now this president declares that the victims of 9/11 and their families must bear another burden. We must stand silent at the last place in America where 9/11 is still remembered with reverence or risk being called religious bigots.

Muslims have worshipped in New York without incident both before and after the attacks of 9/11. This controversy is not about religious freedom. 9/11 was more than a “deeply traumatic event,” it was an act of war. Building a 15-story mosque at Ground Zero is a deliberately provocative act that will precipitate more bloodshed in the name of Allah. Those who continue to target and kill American civilians and U.S. troops will see it as a symbol of their historic progress at the site of their most bloody victory. Demolishing a building that was damaged by wreckage from one of the hijacked planes in order to build a mosque and Islamic Center will further energize those who regard it as a ratification of their violent and divinely ordered mission: the spread of shariah law and its subjugation of all free people, including secular Muslims who come to this country fleeing that medieval ideology, which destroys lives and crushes the human spirit. …

Obama cannot feel for the victims of  9/11 and their survivors, or understand their anguish. He does not share the natural reaction of the nation as a whole to the attack. He is incapable of grasping its historical significance. All this marks him as entirely unsuited to his office.

The speech he made last night was treacherous, abominable, iniquitous, and should end his political life.

  • “You are the first atheist I've come across who thinks Stalin acted out of atheism and in its name.”

    I don't. But plenty of other people would certainly blame all atheists for the acts of Stalin. Just as you seem OK with blaming a billion or so Muslims for the actions of a few.

    ” But then, as you are unable to read, it is not surprising that you get hold of the wrong end of the stick.”

    You're the one who can't read. Nowhere did I state that *I* think Stalin acted due to his atheism.

    “Freedom of religion requires freedom from other religions to succeed, and Islam grants you neither.”

    Neither does Christianity.

    “Whether or not they realize it, it forces everyone to pick a side – and with that sort of mentality, it's clear which one you're on.”

    I'm on the religious freedom side. Are you on the other side?

    I'm an atheist, and you're an idiot. If you want to blame all Muslims for the acts of some, you're justifying, say, blaming American atheists for the acts of Stalin. So if you're OK with eliminating the rights of Muslims, say goodbye to the rights of atheists, too.
