In his regular appearance on Hugh Hewitts radio show on Thursday, Mark Steyn, author of After America: Get Ready for Armageddon, noted what he said were absurdities in President Barack Obamas address to the United Nations.
Obama carved out new territory for a U.S. president during that speech when he said, The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.
He also said, I believe, that the future belongs to those who empower women, Steyn said of Obama, and the power belongs to those who invest in education.
It doesnt quite add up to me, all this. It sounds like as if hes saying the future belongs to gay, feminist Muslims. I wouldnt like to take a bet on it, but Id bet that hes wrong on that. The fact is the president of the United States had no business saying that. If you happen to be a believer in Islam, Muhammad is your prophet. If youre not, hes just a bloke who died in the 7th Century and it should be permissible to say as much.
Its interesting, this, by the way, Steyn continued. The concept the United States and believe me, I know, because I have a threatened legal suit against me from [Penn State climatologist] Dr. Michael Mann, the hockey stick fellow.

Don't know what Canada's laws are on this subject but the fact the Steyn lives in NH (or so he's said,for security reasons he might be lying) and that he often fills in for Rush it seems as if he's at least got a Green Card,if not full citizenship.If so that could,depending on Canadian law,bar him from high public office there.
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Obama
Why is this not a Romney ad?
Have you noticed how Hillary Clinton is pushing the 'extremist meme'. It's NOT radical Muslims she's worried about - it's people who (by her definition) are extreme. Clinton sees Christians as extreme... Hillary sees conservatives as extreme.
I pray he'll consider running for Prime Minister...
