Skip to comments.Obama Thanks Muslims for ‘Building the Very Fabric of Our Nation’
Posted on 07/28/2014 4:50:58 PM PDT by Olog-hai
A statement put out today by President Barack Obama on the occasion of a religious holiday is raising some eyebrows. [ ]
In the United States, Eid (al-Fitr) also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy. [ ]The word choice here, that anyone built the very fabric of our nation would usually sound hackneyed and overplayedbut, in this particular instance, given that the U.S. didnt even have its first Muslim-American congressman until 2007, the peculiar word choice has left some scratching their heads.

Muslims build mosques. Everything else, they destroy.
he gives us the verbal finger every day.
Since when did the actual truth mean anything to this idiot?
What you talkin’ bout Wilis?
I’m very impressed with the impact they had on the Marine Corps anthem.
To the Shores of Tripoli.....
They don’t build all those weapons they store in those mosques . . .
It seems there is only one poll 0bama cares about.
Well it was Muslims that caught and sold us all the slaves for the new world ..
What the *&(^^) did the Muslims build in the U.S.? Obama is a hateful pig. He should go live with his favorite people...maybe in Iran.
"Thank you, Muslims, for burning the very fabric of our society."
A few days ago I read an article where a case was made that Obama was still a Muslim. A point was made that no convert from Islam to Christianity ever said positive things about Islam after the conversion. I would like to know if that holds true. It seems very plausible.
Muuslims were the main source selling black slaves in Africa.
Not sure where Obama gets "building the very fabric of our nation"
Up until some 40 years ago, they were a very small pimple on our collective butt as a nation
They contributed camels to develope the desert south-west ?
Other than that , the Moose-limbs ignored us and our country !
Must be the invention of the zipper on the burka !
Who da heck is this idiot?
Any leftist who rolls their eyes at accusations that Obama is a Muslim ought to be thinking twice. True, he smokes and eats pork. And he probably doesn’t believe in any being greater than himself. So technically I’ll have to concede he’s not a Muslim.
But consider the speech he just gave for EID with his Christmas greeting in 2013, the he gave with his wife. In his Eid greeting, he talks about Muslim spirituality, and the Muslim contribution to the fabric of American society (even though the only Muslim contribution to American society is that it caused us to form the U.S. Marine Corps to fight the Barbary (Muslim) Pirates, and the fact that we now have to take our shoes off and endure all manner of assaults on our liberties by DHS.
Whereas in his Christmas greeting, he doesn’t even mention Christianity (let alone its undeniable contribution to the “fabric of American society.”
Look for yourself:
This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.
In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy. That is why we stand with people of all faiths, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to their communities.
OBAMA CHRISTMAS STATEMENT, Dec 2013
THE PRESIDENT: Hello everybody, and happy holidays.
THE FIRST LADY: We know how busy this time of year is for everyone, so were not going to take much of your time. But we did want to take a moment to wish you all a Merry Christmas, from our family to yours.
THE PRESIDENT: This is a season for millions of Americans to be together with family, to continue long-held holiday traditions, and to show our gratitude to those we love. And along the way, some of us might even watch a little basketball or eat some Christmas cookies, too.
THE FIRST LADY: Here at the White House, over the past few weeks, weve had about 70,000 people from all across the country come visit us and look at our holiday decorations.
This years theme was Gather Around: Stories of the Season.
And in every room of the house, we tried to tell a story about who we are as Americans and how we celebrate the holidays together.
And we made certain to highlight some of the most powerful stories we know the stories of our outstanding troops, veterans, and military families and their service and sacrifice for our country.
THE PRESIDENT: Our extraordinary men and women in uniform are serving so that the rest of us can enjoy the blessings we cherish during the holidays. But that means many of our troops are far from home and far from family. Theyre spending some extra time on the phone with their loved ones back home. Or theyre setting up video chats so they can watch as the presents are opened. So today, we want all of our troops to know that youre in our thoughts and prayers this holiday season.
And heres the good news: For many of our troops and newest veterans, this might be the first time in years that theyve been with their families on Christmas. In fact, with the Iraq war over and the transition in Afghanistan, fewer of our men and women in uniform are deployed in harms way than at any time in the last decade.
THE FIRST LADY: And thats something we all can be thankful for.
And with more and more of our troops back here at home, now its our turn to serve its our turn to step up and show our gratitude for the military families who have given us so much.
And thats why Jill Biden and I started our Joining Forces initiative to rally all Americans to support our military families in ways large and small.
And again and again, we have been overwhelmed by the response weve gotten as folks from across the country have found new ways to give back to these families through their schools, businesses, and houses of worship.
THE PRESIDENT: Thats the same spirit of giving that connects all of us during the holidays. So many people all across the country are helping out at soup kitchens, buying gifts for children in need, or organizing food or clothing drives for their neighbors. For families like ours, that service is a chance to celebrate the birth of Christ and live out what He taught us to love our neighbors as we would ourselves; to feed the hungry and look after the sick; to be our brothers keeper and our sisters keeper. And for all of us as Americans, regardless of our faith, those are values that can drive us to be better parents and friends, better neighbors and better citizens.
THE FIRST LADY: So as we look to the New Year, lets pledge ourselves to living out those values by reaching out and lifting up those in our communities who could use a hand up.
THE PRESIDENT: So Merry Christmas, everyone. And from the two of us, as well as Malia, Sasha, Grandma, Bo
THE FIRST LADY: And Sunny, the newest Obama.
THE PRESIDENT: We wish you all a blessed and safe holiday season.
THE FIRST LADY: Happy holidays everybody, and God bless.
Hardcore leftists like Obama only pretend to have a religious belief when it advancess their interest. Obama’s “Liberation Theology”, for example, was/is a bogus church movement founded and promoted by communists during the early 80s. It began in Latin America and some years later branched into “Black Liberation Theology” by Jeremiah Wright’s comrade James Cone.
Up until our governement armed them at Benghazi , they remained a 'pimple' in the matrix of history
“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam” - President Barack Hussein Obama
Those slaves the Muslims caught and sold picked the cotton of the Old South, which did contribute to “fabrics” that helped build our nation.
The great zero doesn’t know right from wrong, truth from lie nor does he seem to care.
Something wrong in his head. Would be interesting to know about that scar on his skull.
I just didn't scratch my head, I have to revise my total assessment of Obama.
No longer is he simply a posseur, incompetent, arrogant, ignorant bumbler totally out of his depth...
He is simply the first president in U.S. history to be openly insane.
No ability and no knowledge of leadership is bad enough, but his constant stream of Bullshit* is beyond comical and beyond the pale.
Hey dumbass, democracy and Sharia law are mutually exclusive.
They only build mosques if they can’t more easily murder or drive out Christians, and take over a church.
I vaguely remember someone who did Zero’s ancestory explain he was more Middle EAstern than black, and that he had an ancestor who sold slaves...but that was back in 2008...do you remember any of that on FR?
Well apparently they build a hellava tunnel. :-)
I wonder if the Kenyan dildo has any proof that the Muzzies built America or do you just have to be doing a lot of “recreational” drugs.
Ya our burial shroud, maybe....
I've got nothin'
Ah! An empty lot on the south end of Manhattan? Completely destroying the concept of 50 years of striving for racial equality in only 6?
They're changing the name of the Washington Monument to "The Middle Finger"...
My favorite part of the “fabric-building” was the US Marines beating their sheep-molesting azzes in the Barbary Wars.
His Arrogance is a Sunni Muslim. Remember, Muslims are allowed to violate Muslim rules, lie, steal, kill, etc. as long as it advances Islam. So His Arrogance can eat pork, or for that matter marry a porker, as long as it advances the cause. How much action do you see him taking against the Sunni ISIS crime against humanity?
Bammy meant to say “fabrication”....
Yet a huge majority in this country believe he is a Christian.
To President Dumb #&&. We did not have muzzies found this nation. In fact, our President named Jefferson sent our people to defeat the muzzies on the Barbary Coast. Marines got the name Leathernecks by the leather they put on their necks to protect against the swords and knives the muzzies used against them. We went to destroy muzzies back in the 1800s. They were not here establishing anything President Dumb#&&. Even now, your brothers of murder, rape of children, and hate, are doing a fine job of killing each other, depending on tribe they come from, and only the State of Israel is fighting them. Not you President Punk.
Huge majority according to which poll?
The latest poll I saw said something like “23% incorrectly answered that he’s a muslim.” How you “incorrectly” answer a poll question is beyond me.
I don’t remember where I saw it.
You may be on to something. Obama evidently thinks he can structure reality with his rhetoric—the nation never had it so good, the world is tranquil, Muslims built the United States (they must be the ones who really did build that).
lies. muslims had zero to do with building the country. so has barry.
i think he has to actually say the words so that at least he himself can believe them.
