Obama Again Omits ‘Creator’ When Speaking of ‘Inalienable Rights’
CNSnews ^ | September 27, 2010 | Terence P. Jeffrey

Posted on 09/28/2010 10:31:59 AM PDT by opentalk

Just seven days after he sparked controversy by omitting the word “Creator” when he closely paraphrased the passage from the Declaration of Independence that says all men “are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights,” President Barack Obama again omitted the Creator when speaking about the “inalienable rights” that “everybody is endowed with.”

This time the president was speaking at a Sept. 22 fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, and his reference to “inalienable rights” was not as close a paraphrasing of the Declaration as it had been the week before.

"And what was sustaining us was that sense that, that North Star, that sense that, you know what, if we stay true to our values, if we believe that all people are created equal and everybody is endowed with certain inalienable rights and we’re going to make those words live, and we’re going to give everybody opportunity, everybody a ladder into the middle class, every child able to go as far as their dreams will take them--if we stay true to that, then we’re going to be able to maintain the energy and the focus, the fight, the gumption to get stuff done,”
Obama said at the DCCC/DSCC event, according to the transcript posted by the White House.

There’s a reason for that. If you get him to say “Creator” he gets whisked back to that Bizarro Dimension from whence he came. (ala Superman and Mr. Kwiksilpritchlikwhatever).

Including Creator would assume that he both knows what the Declaration says and that he agrees that those rights flow from God.

Given those two circumstances, why would we assume he would include Creator? He clearly doesn’t believe one or both of them.

who will make clear to obama that his beliefs do not trump our values? His refusal to say the word “Creator” is the kind of childish petulance you can expect from a narcicist who hates this country.

How is it that this closet muslim insults our beliefs while we tolerate theirs?

“...we’re going to give everybody opportunity...”

This is typical Dem posturing that contradicts the concept of natural rights. We cannot give what God has already given.

But he still used the word “endowed”, which presumes that those rights don’t just exist within us. He’s not walking the tightrope very well.

everybody a ladder into the middle class

A ladder to the middle. That's funny! Reminds me of a scene from "Almost Famous":

Lester Bangs: What, are you like the star of your school?
William Miller: They hate me.
Lester Bangs: Yeah, well, you'll meet them all again on their long journey to the middle.

"...we’re going to give everybody opportunity, everybody a ladder into the middle class..."

Notice how smoothly this Marxist segues from the Jeffersonian principles upon which our nation was founded, and into Socialist dogma.

I still cannot believe that liberals vociferously defend him against the charge of Socialist, with evidence like this littering his entire public career.

Obama keeps using the term, “inalienable rights.” Doesn’t the Declaration of Independence refer to “unalienable rights?”

To my mind, there’s a difference: “unalienable rights” would be those rights that can’t be surrendered, sold or transferred to someone else - to the government, for example, or another person(God-given rights, like life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness).

“Inalienable rights” would be rights that can be transferred with the consent of the person possessing those rights.

Is he making a conscious decision to use the word “inalienable,” or does he just not know how the Declaration reads?

I think you are missing Obama’s point (or viewpoint)

Those rights are ENDOWED by GOVERNMENT, not a creator, in his world.

But he had no problem reciting the shahada.

According to Islamic scholars, reciting the Shahada, the Muslim declaration of faith, makes one a Muslim. This simple yet profound statement expresses a Muslim’s complete acceptance of, and total commitment to, the message of Islam.

Obama knows this from his Quranic studies — and he knows the New York Times will publish this fact and it will be seen throughout the Islamic world.

Regardless of Obama’s religion, what message is he sending the world’s 1.2 billion Muslims?

It’s interesting that Obama has remembered the Shahada for the 35 years since he left Indonesia — and in ‘first-class’ Arabic — especially since he believes the Muslim call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth.”

The fact that Obama can recall the Shahada after 35 years and the fact that he believes that the daily call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth” say that those Muslim prayers run through his head often — what does that make him?

That “ladder to the middle class” is fine, except,

you have to FORCE other people to build the ladder,
and/or take from them, again by force, the materials to build that ladder.

It’s ridiculous. You can’t fight the bell curve. The very fact that it is the middle defines its limits. You can’t all be in the middle, or else it’s not the middle anymore. There’s always going to be a low end, a high end, and a middle. And ANYONE with two good arms and legs and a willingness to work can still reach the middle. It’s really not even hard to do.

He reportedly has written about his opposition to the language in the Constitution as well.

It is not an “accident”, it is a redacting of one of our founding documents.

He’s here to toss it on the scrap pile of history.
