Posted on 08/21/2010 11:49:17 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Memo to the ruling class media: We are not ignorant or stupid. We've not forgotten Jeremiah Wright. It's not that we don't "know" what faith Obama subscribes to -- it's more that we don't believe him. Or you. Sorry. Not buying.
Besides, sometimes we just like to tweak you with our poll answers -- and use any poll as an excuse to "vote against Obama" in any way, shape or form.
Frankly, it has been equal parts comedy and insult to watch the ruling class media haplessly wrestle with the reality that millions of Americans believe Obama to be a Muslim. They are so clueless.
As if we needed any more proof-- this is simply another positive dose that the ruling class media and the country are divided by a huge gulf of philosophy, reality and experiences. And they are just beside themselves that a country that was concerned that Obama's (Christian?) pastor is a crazy nut in the spring and summer of 2008 can totally forget about all that in the summer of 2010 and call Obama a Muslim.
They so miss the point. We have forgotten none of that. If fact, apparently now more Americans are deciding to look into all of this and process it in light of Obama's actions.
So allow me to help the media out on this thorny confusing issue:
We know you claim him to be a Christian. We know Obama has at times claimed to be a Christian. We know Jeremiah Wright's Trinity Church claims to be some kind of Christian denomination. We simply doubt it. And the more we watch all of you, the less we are inclined to believe any of it.
(And by "we," I mean folks who would respond "Muslim" or "not sure" to your poll questions).
We also know his father was a Muslim. We know his stepfather was a Muslim. We know that under Sharia Law, he is a Muslim, and that much of the Muslim World regards him as a Muslim. We know his mother was an atheist. We know Obama sent a bureaucrat out to claim that NASA's top mission was Muslim outreach. We know he skipped the Boy Scout's 100th Anniversary bash. We know he's had a couple Freudian slips pertaining to his faith. We know he has called the Islamic call to prayer the most beautiful sound on earth.
We know that in light of all of this, some sycophantic White House spokesperson has the gall to say how "obvious" Obama's Christianity is. Depends on what the meaning of "obvious" is I guess.
There's more. So much more:
We know Jeremiah Wright rejects America's Founding principles -- which are consistent with what we call Christianity -- and many of us believe our founding principles were Divinely inspired. Moreover, we know that Obama is on board with Wright on this -- at least to the point of claiming that our Constitution is flawed in how it grants individual rights and liberty. We happen to think that rights Obama wants to curtail come from our Creator.
We know Obama has appointed proud and unabashed Marxists into his government. We happen to know that Marxism is by definition anti-Christian. We know he has confiscated wealth of others to redistribute to his union thug friends under false pretenses. We know he turned his back on Iranian protestors in lieu of an Islamic regime. We know he publicly defers to folks like Chavez and Saudi royalty more than he does Texas and Arkansas governors. On and on we could go here.
So what is so blamed obvious?
The only thing obvious here is that if Obama is a Christian, he is absolutely awful at walking out his faith. Or -- as might be said at any basic tent revival -- he done "backslid." (does anyone in the media have any idea what either of those phrases mean?)
In other words, we are paying attention to what is real and to what you are reporting -- and the two aren't jiving.
Answering a Poll
Another dynamic here is how the average person contemplates poll question answers. I know that in the isolated sanitized academic world of the ruling class - you tend to look at every poll answer as an equal entity. You tend to look at every answer as a window into the soul and understanding of each responder -- and you assume each responder has given equal thought to your little poll.
You over estimate your importance in our lives.
Frankly, we like to mess with your head sometimes. Had I been polled by Time or the Pew Research group, I'm sure I would have said "Muslim." Do I really believe he is a Muslim? I frankly hadn't given it a lot of thought until now -- but I know he's not a Christian under any definition with which I am familiar.
I know he's a Marxist. I know he hates America. I know he is at the very least sympathetic to Muslims. He has a Muslim sounding name, by the way.
Further, I know that for all of your bashing of George Bush and Sarah Palin over their overt Christianity, it will tick you off if I say I don't believe Obama to be one. For all of your protestations that there's nothing wrong with being a Muslim, you will panic if we think your guy is one. I know you better than you know us.
So to register my displeasure with Obama's "Christianity" and to simply irritate you, I would have answered "he's a Muslim" to your precious poll. It's my way of voting against Obama before November 2010 and 2012.
And certainly I am not alone in this thinking.
And none of us are stupid or ignorant or forgetful. We simply understand that we "shall know them by their fruits." Of course, many in the ruling class ignorant media probably think we are gay bashing when we say that. More proof of how out of touch you are.
Can you hear us now?
Excellent post, need to keep this one up front through the weekend. More and more people are looking for truth and answers tight now, much like a person who has just woke up and bright light hurts.
The truth will set us free...funny such an old saying like that will have such a monumental impact on history soon.
I have never heard him say “Christ is my Savior”, or even “Christ is the second Person of the Holy Trinity”, or indeed that there are three persons in One God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
It is impossible to worship Christ as God and Savior, and also pray to Allah!
Obama has jumped the shark.
Yes, I know he was awful from day one, but this mosque thing is where America finally said “We’ve stuck with you because we didn’t want to admit how dumb we were to vote for you, but...”
He’s gone toxic, radioactive, whatever.
For the first time I think he’s a one-termer (no matter how the RNC will try to screw this up by making Romney the nominee).
I heart American Thinker bump!
I’ve posted to enough of your threads that you know I’m supporting Palin now only because all of the alternatives are so awful—not ONE of the alternatives I’ve seen so far is remotely acceptable to me.
I will say I’m getting closer to warming up to the idea you’ve posted. Not there by a long shot, but...Romney? Huckabee? You guys’re kidding, right?
There's just too much irony in that statement not to highlight it!
I've never heard him say, "The Holy Bible", but I've heard him say, "The Holy Koran."
“Hes gone toxic, radioactive, whatever.”
He’s gone nuclear as far as I’m concerned.
Here you are...posting thoughtful, and very correct posts, and all.
It’s good to “see you”, but you can pretend that you didn’t “see” me if that makes you more comfortable. ;o)
I believe he is a Muslim and always have. Actions speak loader than words and he certainly does not act like any Christian I have ever known.
it is amazing how the media ridicule palin and bush for christianity but proudly proclaim obambi to be one- despite all outward signs to the contrary.
If you haven't figured out that I automatically reset each time I log on here, explainin' it won't help. ;P
Gaston Hall during Øbama's speech...
Those Crosses on the wall must have really bothered this little anti-Christ, because he had them covered.
Now, what Christian would do that?
Yer funny, too! ;o)
Obama is a black muslim.
That is the exact word some Dem op was quoted by Politico as saying.
And he is indeed a radioactive hot mess.
I don’t believe anything he says!! Because he is a socialist liar!!!!
