Majority of Republicans: Obama is a Muslim
Seattle PI ^

Majority of Republicans: Obama is a Muslim

A new national Louis Harris poll finds that a majority of Republicans believe that President Obama is a Muslim, while 45 percent agree with the so-called "Birthers" that the president was "not born in the United States."

The poll of 2,230 Americans, taken during last weekend's health care showdown in the House of Representatives, shows how successful Obama's opponents have been in demonizing the 44th president.

Full results are expected tomorrow, but preliminary findings were released in The Daily Beast by John Avlon, whose book "Wingnuts" details the hyper-partisanship that has swept America since 2008.

According to the poll, 57 percent of Republicans, and 32 percent of Americans overall, believe that Barack Obama is a Muslim. The opinion comes despite Obama's description in his bestseller, "The Audacity of Hope", of his adoption of the Christian faith.

The poll found that 45 percent of Republicans, and 25 percent in the overall survey, agree with Birthers that Obama was "not born in the United States and so is not eligible to be president."

The snuffyoffolus interview proved it. He alluded to his "muslim faith", with snuffy having to correct him.

Hell Yes he is a Muslim

I think he was a moslem when he was young.Today,he's an atheist who,like most atheists,has a deep contempt for Christianity and Judaism and a soft spot for The Religion of Pieces.

Let's see, what is this Obama-mama?

Well, maybe he's a terrorist for all we know. His ideas are terrifying.
It appears from his refusal to show otherwise, that this guy may be a Kenyan.
I don't think he's our President - I think he's an ImPoster!

Only 67%? That he's a socialist isn't subject to debate.

I am a Republican and I believe Obama is an atheist. However, he has a cultural and nostalgic affinity for Islam, and screwing Jews and the West suits his agenda anyway.

He was a muslim when he was an Indonesian.

Whether he still is an Indonesian is something that has been sealed with Obama’s records.

But as to whether he still is a muslim, Islam is like Hotel California - you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.

Let's recount a few of the rationale reasons one would believe this:

  1. Obama says "my Muslim faith" to Stephanpolous in an interview.
  2. Says "muslim call to prayer is prettiest sound on earth" in another interview and we learn he can recite the prayers in perfect Arabic with no accent
  3. Praises islam to the hilt in Cairo for imaginary feats and accomplishments while denigrating the US
  4. Bows to Saudi king, a sign of muslim respect to your superiors
  5. Refuses to "jump to conclusions" about a muslim terrorist killing our soldiers but jumps to conclusions about police departments "acting stupidly"
  6. Surrounded himself with extreme anti-Semites during most of his adult years
  7. His enrollment certificate in an Indonesian elementary school lists his religion as "islam"
  8. Working on a "entrepreneurship" program for muslims
  9. Hates Israel and is actively working against Israeli interests
  10. Rumors abound that they don't give gifts to their kids
  11. But he does have a dog, probably just to throw us off the scent.

Need we continue? It is self-evident, is it not? What a freakin' idiot author at the PI.

How many people believe that Barack Hussein Obama is a Christian when he doesn’t acknowledge Christmas or Easter, has no baptism certificate, was raised by 2 muslim fathers, an agnostic mother, and a Unitarian grandmother?

Even Qaddafi calls Obama a muslim. He isn’t. He’s an atheist although he prefers the term “secular humanist”.

It's no rumor. He said in interviews that they don't give the kids Christmas presents, that the Obamas choose ONE GIFT for the whole family (more of the I WON philosophy Obama espouses).

The state of Hawaii produced Obama's birth certificate during the 2008 campaign.

Really? They've repeatedly said that it is unethical for them to release this document without Obama's consent and the continuing lawsuits to prevent it's release would indicate that Obama does NOT consent.

I'm sorry, but for Obama to be a Muslim (or a Christian for that matter), he would have to acknowledge that there is something greater than he is.

As for the "birther" question, it has been nauseatingly educational for me to see the entire American Mainstream Media successfully evade their responsibility to obtain the answer to one simple question: Why has Obama not released his long-form birth certificate? They can't even get around to distinguishing between the long form and the COLB. Do I believe that Obama was born in Kenya? No, I believe that his long form probably shows that his parents were not married, and he calculated that the information would be a political liability. But that is just a guess, and Americans should not have to guess what is printed on their president's birth certificate.

Only if it's based upon a non-fact.

Belief that Obama is Islamic, however, is based more upon fact than fiction.

To be a true muslim, one must believe in mohammed as the last true prophet to the god of abraham.

I don’t know if obama qualifies. I would be very shocked if he is a true believer in any religion. He is definitely well educated in islam and I think he probably prefers islam over christianity but pretends the opposite for political reasons.

Another eye-opening finding: 38 percent of Republicans, and 20 percent of Americans overall, agree that Obama is "doing many things Hitler did."

This sticker was designed by Obama's own propaganda minister, Sheperd Fairey.

A fact Obama was well aware of when he hired him for the Hopey-Changey posters that were wheatpasted in the middle of the night on public property (illegally)

And 24 percent of Republicans, and 14 percent overall, agree that Obama "may be the antiChrist."

Truth hurts. He may not be THE antiChrist but he is AN antiChrist deceiver. One who seeks to replace the Church with The State. Be thankful to Big Govt. which provides a bounty for your every need. He mocks those who "cling to religion". He claims Christian faith while citing Jesus is a "historical figure" and not the savior, all faiths are of equal worth to him (a lift in your shoe but no path will get you to the non-existent "heaven"). He leads the flock astray.

NEVER ONCE DID I SEE A NEWSPAPER OR MAGAZINE DENOUNCE THE HATE CAMPAIGN THAT RAN AGAINST PRESIDENT BOOSH FOR 8 YEARS.

Too late to "change the rules" now.

I agree. I think his real birth certificate would show that Frank Marshall Davis is his real father. I read this on another website long ago and they had a picture of Davis next to an Obama picture and it does look like a resemblance.

Why has Obama not released his long-form birth certificate? ...Americans should not have to guess what is printed on their president's birth certificate.

Obama thinks he's bigger than The Beatles.

The Beatles claimed to be bigger than Jesus (it wasn't just a "popularity" statement, John really believed it - "We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first — rock and roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me.").

Therefore Obama > Beatles > Jesus. Obama thinks he's bigger than Jesus.

Here are the Beatles' birth certificates. Read 'em and weap, Obama.

“Barack Obama received at least some instruction in the Islamic faith of his father and went with him to the mosque, but the importance of this experience is vastly overstated by conservative commentators who seek to portray Obama as a Muslim of sorts. Radical anti-Americanism, rather than Islam, was the reigning faith in the Dunham household. ...

Barack Obama is a clever fellow who imbibed hatred of America with his mother’s milk, but worked his way up the elite ladder of education and career. He shares the resentment of Muslims against the encroachment of American culture, although not their religion. He has the empathetic skill set of an anthropologist who lives with his subjects, learns their language, and elicits their hopes and fears while remaining at emotional distance. That is, he is the political equivalent of a sociopath. The difference is that he is practicing not on a primitive tribe but on the population of the United States.

There is nothing mysterious about Obama’s methods. “A demagogue tries to sound as stupid as his audience so that they will think they are as clever as he is,” wrote Karl Krauss. Americans are the world’s biggest suckers, and laugh at this weakness in their popular culture. Listening to Obama speak, Sinclair Lewis’ cynical tent-revivalist Elmer Gantry comes to mind, or, even better, Tyrone Power’s portrayal of a carnival mentalist in the 1947 film noire Nightmare Alley. The latter is available for instant viewing at Netflix, and highly recommended as an antidote to having felt uplifted by an Obama speech. ...”

As I understand it he was “born” a muslim because his father was a muslim and Obama has not renounced the faith. If he were to do so he’d be marked for death. Now, girls born to muslim father are not automatically muslim. No child is automatically a muslim if the mother is muslim and the father is not.

And you’ll notice he had a perfect chance to renounce Islam in his interview with Stephenopoulas (sp). Instead he let George do it for him.

Someone correct me if I’m wrong.
