Here's The Obama Muslim "Smear" E-mail Sent Out By The County Chair Volunteering For Hillary
TPM.com ^ | 12/5/07 | Greg Sargent

Posted on 12/05/2007 12:36:18 PM PST by LdSentinal

We've just obtained a copy of the Obama Muslim smear email -- smear-mail? -- that the Iowa county chair volunteering for Hillary sent out. Key quotes:

"Obama's parents met at the University of Hawaii . When Obama was two years old, his parents divorced. His father returned to Kenya . His mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a RADICAL Muslim from Indonesia . When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocated to Indonesia . Obama attended a MUSLIM school in Jakarta."

And:

"Since it is politically expedient to be a CHRISTIAN when seeking major public office in the United States , Barack Hussein Obama has joined the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim background."

Ben Smith notes that one of the people on the chain of this email is a Clinton staffer named Ryan Callanan, who received the email on November 21. It's unclear what level Callanan occupies or what exactly this means.

*Subject:* **Who is Barack Obama?**

*_Most_* of this appears to be true! *I shutter to
think!! *Scary guy!


**We checked this out on 'snopes.com'. It is factual.
Check for yourself. ***
*

If you do not ever forward anything else, please forward
this to all your contacts...this is very scary to think of what lies
ahead of us here in our own United States...better heed this and
pray
about it and share it.

THIS DEFINITELY WARRANTS LOOKING INTO. THIS COUNTRY WAS
FOUNDED, 'ONE NATION UNDER GOD'. ALMIGHTY GOD, NOT THE GOD OF THE
KORAN.

We checked this out on 'snopes.com'. It is factual.
Check for yourself.

Who is Barack Obama?

Probable U. S. presidential candidate, Barack Hussein
Obama was born in Honolulu , Hawaii , to Barack Hussein Obama,
Sr., a
black MUSLIM from Nyangoma-Kogel , Kenya and Ann Dunham, a white
ATHEIST
from Wichita , Kansas .

Obama's parents met at the University of Hawaii . When
Obama was two years old, his parents divorced. His father
returned to
Kenya . His mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a RADICAL Muslim from
Indonesia . When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocated to
Indonesia . Obama attended a MUSLIM school in Jakarta . He also
spent
two years in a Catholic school.
Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a
Muslim. He is quick to point out that, 'He was once a Muslim,
but that
he also attended Catholic school.'

Obama's political handlers are attempting to make it
appear that Obama's introduction to Islam came via his father,
and that
this influence was temporary at best. In reality, the senior Obama
returned to Kenya soon after the divorce, and never again had any
direct influence over his son's education.

Lolo Soetoro, the second husband of Obama's mother, Ann
Dunham, introduced his stepson to Islam Obama was enrolled in a
Wahabi
school in Jakarta .

Wahabism is the RADICAL teaching that is followed by the
Muslim terrorists who are now waging Jihad against the western
world.
Since it is politically expedient to be a CHRISTIAN when seeking
major
public office in the United States , Barack Hussein Obama has
joined the
United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim
background.
ALSO, keep in mind that when he was sworn into office he DID NOT
use the
Holy Bible, but instead the Koran (Their equivalency to our
Bible, but
very different beliefs)

Let us all remain alert concerning Obama's expected
presidential candidacy.

The Muslims have said they plan on destroying the U.S.
from the inside out, what better way to start than at the
highest level
- through the President of the United States , one of their own!!!!

Please forward to everyone you know. Would you want this
man leading our country?...... NOT ME!!!

I agree. If primary voters dislike mudslinging then Billary is in even deeper doo doo then before and since the truth means little in politics even if Hussein Obama isn’t a Muslim and even if he didn’t go to a Maressa it doesn’t matter. He was toast to begin with, this just makes him burned toast.

Spelling doesn’t seem to be a strong suit to those who post here. It’s a shame that we are reduced to such butchering of the English language and yes, ignorance is a dangerous thing. It allows you to overlook facts and be governed by prejudices. If facts are presented, liberals lose every time.

Never trust snopes on anything remotely political in nature. They are a hard core lefties and always accept the liberal spin on any political issue.

He’s probably a closet Muslim, but she’s the devil’s spawn. Lets get rid of both.

Snopes is a liberal site that held off on calling Hillary a liar over the Sir Edmund Hillary quote for years, they ventured that maybe her mom lied to her...

Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a radical Muslim while admitting that he was once a Muslim, mitigating that damning information by saying that, for two years, he also attended a Catholic school.

Barack Obama has not "admitted" to being a Muslim, nor has any evidence been produced demonstrating that he is, or ever was, a "radical Muslim." (As with everything else in the e-mail quoted at the head of the page, this is asserted as "fact" despite a complete lack of supporting evidence.) "Senator Obama has never been a Muslim," Obama communications director Robert Gibbs said. "As a six-year-old in Catholic school, he studied the catechism." Barack Obama has been associated with the United Church of Christ since the mid-1980s, describes himself as a Christian, and says that he is "rooted in the Christian tradition."

Obama debunks claim about Islamic school (AP on Yahoo 1/24/07 Nedra Pickler)

Obama's mother, divorced from Obama's father, married a man from Indonesia named Lolo Soetoro, and the family relocated to the country from 1967-71. At first, Obama attended the Catholic school, Fransiskus Assisis, where documents showed he enrolled as a Muslim, the religion of his stepfather.

The document required that each student choose one of five state-sanctioned religions when registering — Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Catholic or Protestant. Gibbs said he wasn't sure why the document had Obama listed as a Muslim.

Snopes OMITTED (lied by omission?) the detail that Obama's school forms identify him as a muslim. It is one of those funny facts that didn't get expunged from the historical record so it just isn't mentioned at all in this Snopes listing.

^^^^^

Short answer: yes.

Rush played a clip of Ms Hillary today where she said, at yesterday’s NPR debate, in answer to a question about her communications with her husband after a trip to China:

Hillary: Yes, I spoke with he and his [I forget what word she used for cronies]...

How can the smartest woman in the world not know that “he” does not follow a preposition.

Obama was raised up under bad infulences, an atheist mother and a Muslim father and stepfather. No, I could not vote for him!

Actually, Snopes is a Liberally biased debunking shrill for the left. If they say it is not true then it probably is true. Their sources for information is CNN, NY Times, WA Post, and, I believe they also quote Dan Rather.
