Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.From behind a smoke screen of perpetuating leftists lies about the Crusades, this guy is telling us who he really is; "coming out", if you like. It's clear: he despises Christians. He despises America, too, but as a madrassa-trained Muslim, Christians really get his goat. (And please, I will delete all comments saying Obama is a Christian. It is an affront to all Christians to propagate that lie.)
Look, if Emperor Zero is looking for somebody to compare to Muslims to make them not look so bad, he has a example, if he were willing to use it: Communism and Communists have murdered many more people than those that claimed the name of Christ ever did. Roger Simon, a Jewish commentator who does not have a dog in this hunt, makes this exact point:
Many faiths could be cited, including communism, obviously, also a kind of religion that was responsible for exponentially more deaths — via Stalin’s Gulag, Mao’s Cultural Revolution and Great Leap Forward, the killing fields of Cambodia, etc. — than all other belief systems combined, although none of them are doing it now. Right now it’s Islamic radicalism that just the other day placed a human being in a cage and burned him alive, an act not, to my knowledge, even performed by Dr. Mengele. And it was done in the name of Allah.Of course Obama felt he had to hector us. He is the first actively anti-Christ occupant of the White House. Many others were no friend of Christ or Christians: John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush to name three. Emperor Zero is not "The" anti-Christ, certainly, but as the apostle John put it, "...you have heard that the anti-christ is coming, even now many anti-christs have come."
And yet Obama saw fit to lecture his audience on the Crusades and slavery, done “in the name of Christ,” subjects of which his audience was undoubtedly well aware and, needless to say, did not approve in the slightest. Yet still the president felt he had to hector them.
Obama, like most Progressive Democrats, believe that Christians or as they put it, "the religious right" are a much greater threat to their plans than Islam, partly because Islam, a totalitarian political system, feels so familiar to people who are essentially Communists. Heck, Emperor Zero was raised by Communists: his own mother, her consort Frank Marshall Davis, as well as Obama's adoptive father.
There was a comment on Roger Simon's article that correctly identifies the cultural stars that Obama navigates by:
...[Obama's] clear identification with all non-western, non-white, non-capitalist, nondemocratic people, cultures and systems. He is a small-minded, testy, twisted little man with an inferiority complex masked by narcissistic acting out and a confused, incoherent ideology. An abandoned child raised by communists, mentored by a pimp, marinated in college dorm radicalism and Alinskian mischief. A profoundly defective mind and character, elected by a weak, lazy, gullible culture not worthy of its heritage.
The best response to Obama I've read to date comes from Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, who delivers the rhetorical ordnance right on target:
“It was nice of the President to give us a history lesson at the Prayer breakfast,” Jindal said. “Today, however, the issue right in front of his nose, in the here and now, is the terrorism of Radical Islam, the assassination of journalists, the beheading and burning alive of captives. We will be happy to keep an eye out for runaway Christians, but it would be nice if he would face the reality of the situation today.
The Medieval Christian threat is under control, Mr. President. Please deal with the Radical Islamic threat today.Boom.
