“During the Cold War, the Democrats were concerned about how many nuclear weapons WE had rather than the Soviet’s arsenal. A top Democratic senator (Patrick ‘Leaky’ Leahy) leaked secrets to the news media and was kicked off the Intelligence Committee. Democrats haven’t changed.” – Det. Michael Lessenger (Ret.)
President Barack Obama’s Wednesday visit to a mosque was intended to kill two birds with one stone: first, to show his solidarity with followers of Mohammad, and second, as a way to vilify Republicans, especially the presidential candidates.
While praising the Muslim audience he bashed Americans who he claims have “stoked Islamophobia and bigotry.”
Muslim leaders gushed over Obama’s first visit to a mosque on U.S. soil with Obama’s symbolic gesture of solidarity and his condemnation of “incidents of anti-Muslim prejudice which are on the rise.” However, a look at FBI statistics actually shows more attacks against Jews and Christians by Muslims than the reverse, something Obama avoids mentioning.
The Obama White House treated the Mosque visit as an opportunity to push the canard that Republicans have demonstrated an alarming and offensive eagerness to bash Muslim Americans.
“It has been a transparent strategy on the part of Republicans to play on people’s anxieties, to target religious minorities, to advance their political ambition,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest during a press briefing.
“No one — not Obama, not Earnest or any of the President’s stooges — has been able to give proof of their anti-GOP allegations. If anything, it’s these progressives who routinely make anti-Christian, anti-Jewish comments at the drop of a hat,” said former police detective and U.S. Marine Sidney Franes. “I’m surprised Obama didn’t blame police officers for targeting practitioners of the ‘religion of peace.'” he added.
Obama’s obsession with Muslimphilia was reinvigorated when members of the House of Representatives — Republicans and some Democrats — tried to pass a bill in November to suspend the entry of Syrian and Iraqi refugees to the U.S.
The lawmakers had simply stated that a pause would allow the government to improve the screening of refugee applicants for people with links to terror groups. But Obama said the refugee program was designed to help people left most vulnerable by regional conflicts, and that those admitted underwent the most rigorous screening of any travelers visiting the U.S.
However, Obama’s own FBI director told lawmakers that there wasn’t a way to vet the refugees since there were no records to vet them with.
During Obama’s visit, he neglected to mention one of the mosque’s members, Adnan Syed, who was convicted of an honor killing in 2000, when he murdered his a high school girl, Hae Min Lee, who rejected his advances. He was a regular worshiper at the mosque and his family continues to attend services there. After serving more than 14 years in prison, Syed’s supporters are attempting to bring in new evidence they claim will prove his innocence.
“Perhaps, President Obama will issue this killer a full pardon when he’s ending his term in office. Presidents are given that right and are quick to release prisoners before exiting the White House,” said former police officer and security manager Lois McNamara.
Obama also met with Imam Yaseen Saikh, who preaches against homosexuality, calling it “shameful.” However, the President, who is a big supporter of gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender Americans did not broach the subject. “Obama is always quick to condemn Christians for being homophobes, but then again he’s proven he’s no friend to devout Christians and Jews,” said McNamara, a Catholic.
